Podcast #208: An Important Question to Ask Yourself

  1. In a way, I hate to admit that I am comfortable with those feelings. I was just talking to a friend, and he asked me if I was suicidal, and I answered honestly “no”. Because, for me, fear and courage are two sides of the same game, and when it gets serious, you can experience anything with strong guts. With that said, my laundry room is broken so I’ll now cheerfully go to the laundromat. My attitude is always, if its a lemon, make lemonade with a little water and sweetener. I felt a little down when I looked in my laundry room and knew I’d have to leave the apartment and go offsite, but I will make the best of it. As for yoga, (quite seriously, yet quite humorously) I do it every day according to Frank Rudolph Young’s “Yoga for men only” book program, so I am in pretty good shape. (totally seriously now:) In short, I’m okay with the good and okay with the bad also. There is no ick, just objective ups and downs with total acceptance. I’m not perfect by any means, but, I am as happy as I make up my mind to be.

    1. Hi Joshua
      Thanks so much for sharing your experience. You are right…we can see what the mind views as ‘ick’ as a normal experience of the human condition. When we don’t resist those feelings, they aren’t as bad as they typically seem to us. I always enjoy your comments..they are very insightful and I can tell you are someone who engages in a great deal of self-reflection.
