Pema Chodron, the master of wisdom said: “Rather than letting our negativity get the better of us, we could acknowledge that right now we feel like a piece of shit and not be squeamish about taking a good look”…
I can’t tell you what a relief finally getting this has been for me.
Negativity can be a deal killer in any environment and I’ve found so often it isn’t what it seems— rather its this elusive back story we often don’t really get to.
Check out the founder of Elephant Journals wisdom on the 4 practical tips for dealing with negativity… it’s seriously great:
1. Have good, yet relaxed posture .
2. Dress in well-tailored clothing.
3. Get the clothes off the floor.
4. Do nothing—allow gaps.
They sound rather ridiculous just as they are written… but listen to the actual spiritual teaching behind each one.
For me, it’s dead on.
