Magic Formula

An old friend said to me: accept what is going on at this moment. Accept it and say: Alright, thanks! Say to all things that are currently happening in your life: Alright, thanks!

At first I thought: he is totally crazy!

But I tried it out, because it couldn’t get worse.

It was strange; I had never before tried to accept the bad things in my life. It was like an awakening.

Later he gave me the addition: Enjoy this situation. Enjoy all your feelings that you have in it.

I know that probably sounds unusual to you. But for me this tiny mantra is my magic formula. It really works! It works, because we give up fighting against something.

Internal fighting produces stress. If we give up fighting we get a new perspective of some things in our life.

With Love,
