Are you in harmony with life? Sometimes we spend a lot of energy fighting against “what is.” It doesn’t do much good because in that moment, it is! The only thing we can change is our thoughts about the situation, and then what happens next can change dramatically. Byron Katie, author of the book Loving What Is, spoke about this at Unity on the Bay on Saturday. I highly recommend her book and The Work she does.
I had an amusing example of putting this into practice the next day on Super Bowl Sunday. Anyone who knows me knows that sports aren’t really my thing (to say the least), but when my friend George invited me to go to a sports bar with him to watch “the game,” something in me said yes. Honestly, since I don’t own a TV, that something was an opportunity to watch Katy Perry in the halftime show and spend some time with my friend.
I arrived a little before halftime, so the game was still happening. Even though I was not invested in either team, I decided to yell, scream, and cheer along with the crowd whenever they did. It amused me greatly because I really had no idea what was going on. I just went with the energy. Instead of judging or wondering why people were getting so excited about a game, I joined their excitement. I suppose many of them would wonder why I would go to the American Airlines Arena when the Miami Heat weren’t playing. Why would I be so excited about a Madonna concert or Oprah’s “The Life You Want Weekend?” Different things excite different people, but joy is a divine energy no matter what form it takes. Sunday night unfolded in unexpected ways, and I ended up having one of the most fun evenings I’ve had in a long time. I know it’s because I decided to be in harmony with life.
Sometimes that’s easier said than done. Luckily there are tools to help us. One of the best tools I’ve come across is Family Constellation. It gives participants the actual experience of restoring harmony among the different aspects of their lives. It’s simply amazing what happens in these workshops, but words fall short of describing it. Come see for yourself this month and “Transform Your Relationship with Love.”
Wishing you Peace, Love, Joy, and Harmony in all of your relationships…
