Observe Yourself

This post is actually a continuation of the previous post: Mind Your Own Business. Often times we couldn't help thinking about the past. The scene just keep on playing in our mind even though we stop it every time we become aware of it. It just keep on coming back.

So how do we stop it. The answer is your focus. Your mind will start thinking on where you are focusing on. If your mind is idle and you are not focusing on anything in particular then it tends to play the most accessible or recent memories. Thus, never let your mind be idle. Focus on your present moment. Observe yourself. Stop bothering about others, the past and the future, but focus on yourself and your present moment. If you decided to be good and beneficial no matter what, then observe yourself doing it. No one is responsible for your action except you yourself.

Focusing on the good and positives in the present moment will create a good and positive life. Forget about the past and the worries. Trust God on those matters. Watch yourself every moment. Ideally, in each moment your can be in one of three states of inner-being. You either can be in acceptance, or enjoyment or enthusiasm. Make sure you are in either one of the three states in every moment you live in.

Care for yourself, love yourself and make the best out of yourself. Instead of bothering about others and the non-existence (the past and the future), be your own best friend; always there to guide, to love, to correct, to remind and to help yourself.

Mind Your Own Business

Have it ever occur to you that you are always minding other people's business?
Most of us would answer 'No'. Well think again. At least when you are alone, what are you thinking. Are you always focus on your present moment all the time?

Chances are that we are thinking about the past events. We relive the past moments. Sometimes we even rehearsing in our mind what should be said in those moments. We judge the characters. We let the emotion absorb into us. The sadness, the in-satisfaction, the anger, the shame, the happiness... all drifting us away from our present moment.

Do we gain anything from this? Does it rectify the situation? Are we feeling any better? The answer is 'No'. Why? Because no action is done. It only amplify the emotion. And according to law of attraction, it attracts more of such situation. Furthermore, you lost. You let your present moment pass by without doing anything beneficial.

When dealing with the past, the first thing to do is to accept it, and then ask yourself what you can learn from it and how can you rectify it. The philosophy here is to think of the positives (the lessons and the solution). If you can't think of a remedy, leave it to God since He is the best to rely on. Then move on with your present moment. Mind your own business.

Judging and thinking about others is not your business. Whatever others do to you is also non of your business. It is their business. Your business is how you react to a situation. Thinking about the problem is a negative way of reacting. Judging and thinking of how bad and inappropriate others are also non of your business. Let God deal with it; He knows the best. Your business is in your present moment. Make the best out of it through your soul. Be sincere in every moment and your soul will guide you through.
