When an obnoxious and aggressive world displays its nuttiness just say to yourself, “I have nothing to say to that.” The world cries, “Give me your agreement or your disagreement but whatever you do, don’t ignore me!” Intelligently notice both outer and inner darkness then quietly ignore it. Switch your attention back to the present moment with this powerful self-talk statement. You have higher things to think about and darkness’s anguish is not your concern. Every “success” darkness has is based on convincing you that its anguish is your concern. It wants you involved with it, fighting it, trying to help it. Dare to reply instead, “I have nothing to say to that!” As The Daily Guru said once, “The resistance to the disturbance IS the disturbance.” Work with this exercise this week. Notice how good you start to feel as you cease throwing fuel on the initial disturbances – all those tiny little outer and inner fires that are very significant until you react to them. creditsThe Daily Guru Image Ashish_Choudhary,Pixabay.
