Find the Answer in You
Want to do a nice thing for your friends? Here’s how to make everyone and everything nicer without even lifting a finger.
Close your eyes.
Unplug. Untie. Relax.
Turn off the words, sounds, and pictures in your head. Fade to black.
Look for the faint blue light by the hole on the back your eyelids. It takes a while but you’ll see it. Then look through the hole and you’ll see the stars. You can see the universe right there from wherever you are.
It’s the strangest thing, but you can be inside and outside at the same time. It takes patience and practice to find that hole. It’s hard to stay that relaxed. It’s about letting go. It’s finding out that it’s okay not to be in control.
I found it by accident when I was trying to sleep one night. I thought it was a memory of the sky. But it’s not.
Your cells are smarter than your brain. Let them show you.
Just put yourself out there, sit in the space, and trust.
No words, no sounds, no ideas.
People and stars are made of the same stuff.
It’s not hard to know what you know when you give yourself space.
You’ll come back feeling more relaxed, smarter, and happier.
And the people you meet and everything you see will suddenly be a whole lot nicer.
