Meditation For Balance & Grounding

This is a practice which is good for times when you feel off-centered or off-balance.

Sit in a quiet place, where you feel at ease and comfortable.
Take some deep breaths.
As you breathe in, feel yourself expanding to receive.
Then breathe out, and exhale any resistance or constriction.

Close your eyes. Imagine yourself asking permission to move safely into the care of the earth, to rest in the care of earth, to feel the sustenance and strength and life offered by the earth. Hold the intention that you do not wish to disturb anything or create any changes, but simply wish to connect respectfully with earth, in a safe and protected way.

Become aware of the pure majesty and strength and power of the earth, and of how it offers its life to support yours, like a vast womb sustaining the child it carries.

At the same time, let yourself be aware of the vibrant, life-filled, dynamic energy of creation and change which is expressing itself as earth, creating the earth with so many variations of form, of land and water, century after century.

One layered upon the other, one side-by side with the other, uncountable forms and compositions of land and water and air have arisen and shaped the earth as you now know it, over centuries and centuries and centuries. It is still occurring, in ways both slow and fast, powerful and subtle, hidden and visible, powerful and delicate.

Let yourself sense this unlimited process taking place across vast stretches of time, joining time and space and form in a profound union, both stable and changing. You can observe this, sense it, perceive it, balance yourself in it.

Earth was not impatient as this creation unfolded. As she expressed herself in the perfection of who she is and was, all of these things naturally coordinated and happened. She was not hurried or worried. She gave herself to the process with no need to control it.

Through your intention, let each inhale take you deeper into the experience of earth. Every inhale relaxes you, invites expansion, and takes you deeper.

Every exhale releases resistance or hesitation. Gradually, you access the pulse, the heart of earth. This will be almost audible to you as a consistent rhythm, much like a human’s heart.

Remain peaceful and aware and allow yourself time and space to listen to this heartbeat, this pulse. Rest in it and center your awareness on it.

And now imagine you’re looking upon your earth, aware that you are so deeply and intimately sensing your connection with the essence of what earth is. Your true connection to the earth pulse, the earth heartbeat, occurs through the medium of your body. Your awareness of this elemental connection becomes very sensitive and attuned, balanced, sustained and grounded in your perceptions of earth reality.

We suggest you do this exercise several times a week to align yourself with the pulse of your inner link to the outer earth. Allow yourself to experience this alignment, this linkage, and rest in it, stand on its sacred ground, safe and balanced.

How To Expand Your Perspective

Here is an exercise to help you see your life from a broader perspective and give you clarity in times of challenge. Relax into this exercise playfully, so that it becomes appealing to use.

First, set aside a little time for yourself and sit in a quiet and comfortable place. Then, look at something as simple as a pencil.

Contemplate the pencil and take a moment to see all of its parts clearly: the paint on the outside of the pencil . . . the lead in the center . . . the eraser on the end . . . the wood in-between.

Let your mind begin to stretch, to uncurl and wander.

How many things had to happen to create the simple pencil?

How many components went into simply making the paint? Where did they each come from? How did the paint get applied to the pencil? How many machines and people did just that one step take? Where did they all come from?

Then consider the wood: who grew the trees? Who sold the wood? How was it cut and transported? Who made the trucks that carried it? Who built the roads the trucks used? Where did the fuel come from?

Let your mind expand.

The lead, the eraser, the metal band around the pencil . . . contemplate each component in the same way and then consider how they all came into one form which we call 'pencil'. And then consider the factory where the pencil was made. How did that arise? How many parts were made and then fit together? What did it take to make each part of the factory?

Let your mind expand.

Each person involved in each step had to be raised, nourished, educated and trained - how many components went into that?

Let your mind expand.

This process gently sets a pattern within you of shifting from a small perspective to a larger one, then to a vast one, then into one that is limitless and relaxes your mind. As you practice, you will find you can shift back and forth, at will.

Your mind, when faced with the limitless, is released from a sense that it must understand, define, control. Released, it can relax and simply observe in wonder.

Can you begin to look at yourself in the same way, creatively understanding all the myriad factors that have influenced you and helped you become who you are? You can change and expand your relationship to everything in your life, including yourself, by shifting your perspective in this way.

As you allow your mind to relax in this way, deeper levels of wisdom and compassion can arise in you.

Say a person or situation comes into your life that would ordinarily throw you into reaction. Now you can pause and see the limitless intermixing of circumstances that created the situation. Taking a moment to gain that expansive view releases you from a constricting reaction and gives you more freedom of choice. You begin to see things in terms of possibilities, of finding points where you might intervene to create change. Your mind expands and your heart softens.

Gaining the ability to see from a perspective that is at once both vast, and precise, relaxes the mind and stimulates creativity. This will carry over quickly into many areas, supporting your ability to see choices and opportunities; to explore, rather than remain in the grip of habitually patterned limitations.

Voyaging into the space of infinitely interdependent reality allows you to see clearly, calmly, and compassionately.

This is a very traditional Buddhist practice. If anyone is interested in finding out more about Tibetan Buddhism, you may contact Tenzin Lhamo, an ordained Tibetan Buddhist nun at

Becoming An Objective Observer

What does it mean to become an objective observer? Why should you want to?

Let’s illuminate the value of learning to do this. Specific reasons underlie the advice to develop this ability. Most important, becoming an objective observer liberates you from constrictions and restrictions such as fear, shame, and resentment, and offers you the freedom of true choice, of achieving true alignment with your ultimate goals.

The first reason to pursue becoming an objective observer is that you can better understand any given situation, truly and clearly, without being confused by emotions.

Second, when you are not controlled by emotions, you’ll make better and more beneficial choices.

And third, you will gradually gain peace. Turbulent emotions will not be in control. When you look back, because your decisions were better, there will be more peace because there will be fewer regrets. With trust in your ability to make the best choice, you will be confident that you see a situation clearly, without the entrapments and turbulence of being controlled by an emotionally upset state.

The fourth reason? By becoming an objective observer, you more efficiently step out of judgment. You will see situations from a position of understanding rather than being blinded by a knee-jerk response or default reaction set by earlier, unthinking experiences. You’ll be able to identify what is “just an emotion” passing through temporarily rather than some sort of solid, lasting reality.

Fifth, and possibly most important: choices generated from clarity are more likely to produce beneficial results for you to enjoy. Emotion-based choices, made on the basis of feelings such as fear, usually bring about additional fear-based results or equally distorted perceptions.

As you become an objective observer, you experience becoming a watcher. In observing and watching your emotions arise, and becoming more interested in how they arise, and why they arise, you’ll gradually achieve freedom from being controlled by them.

This is not a process of becoming detached from emotions. Instead, this is becoming more aware, freed from the constrictions and distortions imposed by primarily emotional responses. This is becoming free to live in alignment with your true self, rich in experience and awareness, warm-hearted and free from bullying emotional dynamics.

By practicing this technique, you will learn a great deal about how emotions create perceptions. Perceptions are often quickly and powerfully distorted by emotional associations and obscure the neutral objective reality.

Most experience of existence is based upon our perception of conditions and situations. How can you see clearly and have the ability to make decisions responsibly and productively, particularly in this current time of fear and confusion? This matters a lot, especially in our interdependent world, when how you decide things really affects others. An essential pathway that allows you to decide with clarity is to observe yourself and others objectively, rather than through distorted emotional lenses of fear, need, anger, etc.

By gaining this ability to observe yourself and others objectively, you gain understanding at the level of seeing why you make certain decisions or react in the way you do, and what results usually follow, when you act in those patterns. You can demonstrate reliably to yourself, through observing, that if your reaction is fear-based, and your subsequent decisions are fear-based, you will actually tend to create more fear-based experiences rather than freeing yourself from fear.

As an objective observer, no longer controlled by fear or confusion or other distorted states, you can make choices based on factors more stable and trust-worthy than ever-changing emotions. By giving yourself time to contemplate and understand yourself and your patterns more lucidly, it becomes clear to you what is truly motivating a certain decision; gradually, your decisions become more in alignment with your ultimate goals.

This also affects how you perceive others. You gain freedom from judging not only yourself, but from judging others. This creates less constriction, less blaming and guilt, and more freedom and warm-heartedness.

A Little Practice

Watch your emotional reactions, notice how you feel and then ask yourself these questions:

  1. How old do you feel?
  2. What does this feeling remind you of?

These simple questions will help you become more aware of why certain emotions arise under certain conditions. With this level of understanding it is much easier to see yourself and others more compassionately.

Are You A Harsh Judge? This is not being an Objective Observer

Judgment is one of the least productive experiences you can have. If one of your ultimate goals is to understand yourself, it is necessary to look at those aspects of yourself which prove, through repeated experience, to be detrimental if seen objectively. It is important to know these aspects of yourself from this viewpoint: you want to understand why those less-than-desirable aspects arose within you. Usually such aspects were used as tools; you were trying to achieve something, but the tools might not have produced the result you wanted.

Try this exercise:

Write down all the qualities or aspects of yourself you do not like. List them one by one. Then ask yourself these questions, as you consider each, one by one:

  1. Is this quality arising at times to protect me? If so, how do I see it protecting me? What does it try to protect me from?
  2. Does this quality arise out of anger? If so, is that anger being supported by fear?
Then try to identify, one by one, if there are ways these "qualities" have truly benefited and supported you.

Identify exactly how these qualities have served you as tools. What did you want them to do? Were they successful tools?

When you break down these aspects of yourself that seem detrimental, you can gain a different perspective of why they exist and how you have used them to support and protect yourself.

In realizing that, then, how can you remain in judgment of yourself? These were just specific tools used at the time when needed, when they appeared helpful. So now, it will also be easier to say, “All right, I have used these ‘tools’ in the past, and yet have seen results that were not ultimately of benefit to all. I have new ‘tools’ now.”

Therein arises a perception of choices, of freedom to choose a new way over the old detrimental tool. Now understand, please, that often times under stress, it is easy to default back into old "choices" for that is what you are familiar with and that is, at times, where you might feel safer. In the case of finding that you default back into old thought patterns and reactions, be patient with yourself and the experience. It takes time to shift and achieve a level of trusting the new "tools" as much as you have trusted the effectiveness of the old "tools.”

Remember, most children and adults are not taught actual coping skills; instead they learn from what they are exposed to, without being able to judge what is helpful and what is detrimental. Only when older, gaining in clarity and objectivity, can they begin to assess and evaluate what is truly helpful, and then gain choice to pursue a new course.

Controlling What?

We have noticed people asking us how can they control themselves?

We would encourage you to change your language to "how do I understand myself"?

Ask yourself: is it the situation I want to control? If so, why do I want to control it?
Then ask: or rather, is it myself I want to control?
Why do I want to control myself?
What in myself do I want to control?

Asking such questions will help identify if you are in fear. If you detect fear in yourself, what then are you truly afraid of? Is it a tangible fear or a perceived fear, a fear of something that often never actually arises? Using your logic at this time helps to counterbalance any emotion that is not realistic.

As long as you are still wanting to control yourself in a way that does not acknowledge your needs, fears, and conflicts, attempts will meet inner resistance. Other qualities which resist being controlled arise strongly. As the saying goes, “What you resist, persists.”

Using the word “control,” while lacking a deeper understanding of the processes at work in yourself, usually sets up an experience of fear, with associations of being inappropriately vulnerable, etc. Control also has a sense of judgment to it which usually obscures the ability of seeing situations clearly, factually.

Instead, if you think about becoming more compassionate with yourself, you can avoid that resistance which arises. By gaining the ability to objectively see yourself and the way you work, your patterns of needs and reactions, you will release the need to judge or to control. You will experience more and more choice, more clarity, more peace. You will be at ease with your emotions, rather than at the mercy of them.

Financial Distress

Along with the current "winds of change" occurring in your physical reality, come opportunities to address fears. One of the greatest fears these days is financially oriented.

Play with this:

Practice seeing money not in dollar signs, but as pure energy. See the money that you have brought into your lifetime as pure energy.

What does that feel like to you?
What does that look like to you?

Notice where you feel it in your body.
Think of all the time and effort you've put in to create such enormous amounts.

The energy you are experiencing is what you have created! This is a part of you!

If you believe, in any way, that you are a co-creator of your own reality, then how can you lose yourself, or even a part of who you are?

If you realize that this creation is just a piece of you energetically, how can it be dissolved by anything outside of you?

Certainly there is such a thing as karma, and you must have the karma to have created this financial influence, to have brought all this money into your life, up to this point in time.

So, trust that this energy which has been associated only with dollar signs, is truly more than just the dollar signs. It is pure energy and it can retranslate itself. In other words, as you maintain your focus on this pure energy and deepen your relationship with it, you may find things coming to you in your physical world such as clothing, food, transportation, and anything else you want and need.

So ask yourself: Is this really about the money, or what the money provides?

Step out of being attached to the dollar signs and practice just seeing a conscious energy that takes you to what will support you from moment to moment.

This practice will support you in staying out of the fear and contraction which stagnates the flow of conscious energy by focusing on what is available to you.

Of course this is predicated upon you being prudent with your actions. Remember, energy follows clear intentions and actions.
(See article on The Importance of Language in Creating Intention)

The Importance of Language in Creating Intention

In using words to develop intentions we hear phrases like, "May this be for the highest good". Even small phrases of this nature can make a difference when holding a strong intention. Notice the difference between the word "good" and "love" or "kindness" or "compassion".

The energy behind each of these words is very different. When using "good" the energy of "judgment" arises. Good and bad; right and wrong. Words solidify intentions. So first be mindful of what you are ultimately seeking, and then state it clearly.

Using "the Highest Loving Context", as we say, to support you in developing an intention may raise the question of one's own "love package". Some associations to love may have a painful impact for personal reasons. For example, a child born into an abusive family environment will have different associations with love than one that was raised very kindly with great care. So each "love package" may look a little different based upon one's personal history.

Begin by taking a moment to sit quietly and go within.

  1. Ask yourself - what is your ultimate goal?
  2. Then define the components of that goal. If, for example, 'love' is your ultimate goal, then break it down - i.e. kindness, consideration, caring, patience, etc. Really get into the details of it.
By doing this, you are further clarifying the goal and intention you want to support; or as some people say, “getting grounded” at a much deeper level.

By taking time to sit with this you add energy to your intention. Being mindful, makes your intention more potent. Remember, while confusion and ignorance are rooted in illusion, clarity is rooted in Truth. And 1 grain of Truth is 10 times more powerful than any amount of illusion.

A Tool to Help You Develop Your Personal Road Map

Fun Exercise: The Pieces of Your Personal Puzzle

(Please refer to 'How To Create Your Own Living Road Map' below)

  1. Contemplate those you look to, pray to, or admire.
  2. Write down the qualities you see in those individuals - like compassion, patience, or whatever qualities you feel drawn to further develop a relationship with.
  3. After making your list of at least 6 or 7 of these qualities, take separate pieces of paper and entitle each piece of paper with a quality.
  4. Describe each quality in detail, describe how you see these qualities manifest in those you are using as an example. Go into as much detail as possible, explaining the results and payoffs for these qualities. In other words, what are the benefits of incorporating these qualities deeply into one's life?
As you write, you support yourself in integrating and understanding how these qualities relate to who you are now, and who you have the potential of becoming. Even though you are describing how you see these qualities in others, remember you wouldn't be able to describe them if you didn't also "own" them, or possess them within yourself.

Know that you are using these individuals as models. More importantly they are mirrors, reflecting back to you.

Another key factor to remember is intention. As you are writing and understanding the benefits of these qualities, intend that this understanding becomes a deeper awareness for you.

As clearly as you can see these qualities in others, may you internalize the benefits for yourself and all beings and use them productively in your life!

How To Create Your Personal Road Map

Channeled 2/12/09

This blog is intended to support individuals in understanding not only the capacities that you have at this particular time, in reference to changes happening in your world, but also in developing a personal relationship with what can be done, using very practical tools, using very practical techniques, in learning how to become a creating, conscious human being.

Good Greetings to all of you.

We are here to present ourselves a little bit differently this time. It is our intention to support individuals in many different ways. There are different ways to learn and understand . . . one can benefit through reading, some people learn better through auditory opportunities, so, this is our intention. We want to make this blog visually pleasing, we want to have opportunity to speak to you in this way, and we will also have written transcripts.

Some of the things that we want to do is to use this blog as an educational tool. In so doing, our intention is to support individuals, not only in the immediacy of the moment, but to give them tools to help them throughout their life's challenges which are arising, as many are finding, and have been challenged through this last year or so.

What we want people to understand is that this is an enormous, enormous time of change, as you have been seeing. But from our perspective, it is a wonderful, wonderful time of change. As with anything that is transitionary, there are certain opportunities for challenge and stress, but when you can see the potential outcome, those challenges and stresses really only become the smaller details of a much, much larger picture.

It is the analogy of giving birth, it is what the Hopis [a Native American tribe] have been discussing, it is what Nostradamus has been talking about in his quatrains, it is all of these things, the Mayan calendar, it is all these things that are being foretold.

And it is truly, truly a wonderful opportunity for people to realize that the potential that is arising, is more enormous than anyone can imagine.

We see it right now as though there is a crest, a wave, and this wave is what many, many people have the opportunity to ride upon. Now, if one is fearful of riding on the wave, then one will be engulfed by it. But if one can really steady oneself upon the wave, one will be able to have a wonderful opportunity, to see from a very different viewpoint, what is truly happening.

If you look right now at whether it is your economy, the governmental process, your own personal lives, you will see that a lot is dissolving and falling away. Most of what is dissolving and falling away has to do with that which is not working any longer in regard to the new wave of consciousness that is arising.

We have used the example [of] - and if you look back to some of the articles that were written awhile back about - the Barack Obama, and the potential of his candidacy, and what would happen if he was able to win the presidency, this is also another indicator of this wave, of this larger consciousness. You listen to this man, he is intelligent, he holds focus, he is the indicator, he is the result of, consciousness arising.

It is not that we're saying that he is the enlightened one to take everyone into Nirvana. But what we're saying is if you can see this as the result of consciousness arising . . . See it as the result of all the things that you have been praying for, all the kind acts, all the compassion, all the wisdom that's arising . . . to culminate into this timing right now.

So, the most important thing for people to do right now is to hold this larger focus. As a wise one told this Catherine at one point in time, 'to keep the eagle's eye view'. The eagle's eye view of what potentials are arising; the things that are not working any longer are dissolving - dishonesty, deceit, greed - all of these things are not part of the consciousness that is arising. And you can see, systems that have been built upon this are falling apart. So, yes, some of you have been very dramatically affected and/or influenced by this transitionary time period.

So this is what we're going to recommend. Several things. We will post little practices. We've posted the Bubble Protection practice, to help support you in aligning with yourself, staying focused within, internalizing. We're going to have a little bit of meditation that we have available to you - again, to support you in staying internalized, not getting too distracted by what is happening, "out there".

The other thing that we're going to recommend is that you write out a half a dozen qualities. Half a dozen qualities that you can relate to, that you can identify with. Qualities such as peace, happiness, kindness, compassion, freedom, exploring one's abundant nature, and when we say that, [we mean] in all ways: Abundance of opening to potentials, abundance of one's pure spirit, abundance of one's perception of the magnitude of happiness available to oneself in any given moment. Six qualities.

And what we want you to do is use these as road maps. And write them on separate pieces of paper, post them all over, and let that be your focus. The more that you spend time with these six qualities, the more you identify with them; the more you can remember moments that elicit these six qualities; the more you ignite within yourself what we call these internal antennae; and these internal antennae will, consciously and unconsciously, continually direct you into more and more of those opportunities [to experience these six qualities].

So, as you focus on these qualities, let's say you can remember a time you were in pure happiness - sit with it. Allow yourself to feel it as deeply as you can. And lose the association [to the circumstances] and just stay with the feeling state. Because you don't want to be attached to what brought that happiness to you, you want to just be in the pure experience of happiness. And then open yourself to receiving more of the same.

And then as you go through all of these six different qualities, spend time every day with them, and just know that what you're creating for yourself are road maps. Road maps to take you into what is next, and you stay focused on that. And let that then be your defining, let us say, system for you, rather than fear and the illusory nature that is arising right now.

Remember, that so much of society has been built upon fear for so many years, and it is what society and humanity has become used to. You're breaking out of that illusion right now. And so, in order to do that, you want to stay focused on what you ultimately intend for yourself.

And, yes, the fear will arise and if you could see it like clouds in the sky, just passing by: one moment it'll look like that and the next you look up, it will look differently. That's all that fear is. It is an illusion, it is not based in reality.

But these six qualities are based in reality. And this is what one can focus on to take one into what is next. To create this new, new potential for yourselves, to stay out of the fear-based orientation that has enveloped your reality for so long.

Sweet ones, we know it may seem like you are beating your head against the proverbial wall right now, but reality is, that is just fear and it is just literally paper thin. It is just an illusion. It is not a thick wall at all.

It's very difficult for you to see that right now and we absolutely understand. So the other thing we're going to encourage is compassion. Compassion for yourselves, and compassion for others, in understanding that because so many have lived inside fear for so long, most people are enveloped by it, still.

And yet, and yet, this crest, this beautiful, beautiful wave, is available to all and we encourage you all to take advantage of it.

So remember your six qualities. Focus on them, spend time with them. You ignite within you these internal antennae that will, as we stated, consciously and unconsciously, take you into more of the same.

Remember practice. Practice to those that you look up to: If you have a spiritual basis, say your prayers. Relate to the qualities that you pray to. In other words, if you pray to a saint or an angel or a deity or to God, what are the qualities you are looking for inside those individuals? What are those qualities that you're seeking? And literally, literally, sit with those qualities because you have ownership of that which you see in them. So take time. Use your breath to take you inside yourselves, stay focused.

Blessings, blessings, blessings to all of you. Thank you for such an opportunity. Thank you for this opportunity to allow us to come into your lives to support you. Please always know that there is energy here, at any time that you should seek.

Open your solar plexus to receiving only that which is in the highest loving context for you. Open and receive all that which is in balance to your physical body. And let yourselves ride this beautiful, beautiful crest, this beautiful wave. And be like the eagle, soaring above it all, noticing everything that is happening below you, but not being a part of it, just being a witness to it.

Blessings sweet ones.

Become A Witness

These tools are being created so that when these winds of change come blowing through, as they are now, one has developed a rooted, grounding system so deeply, that one will be able to allow these winds of change to blow through them and not to uproot them. Like in the winter months, the trees and the plants establish a deeper root system, now is the time to do that for yourselves. And, so, as these winds of change come blowing through, you will not be influenced. You will only be a witness to them.

The Importance of Journaling

One of the most important benefits of journaling is that it coordinates - engages and integrates - the three "bodies" (or aspects of human experience) that are tangible to your physical reality:
  1. Mental
  2. Emotional
  3. Physical
We look at every human being as having five bodies. Being aware of the 5 bodies can help you grasp (at least in part), the complex nature of every human being.

The five bodies are:
  1. Mental
  2. Emotional
  3. Physical
  4. Energetic
  5. Spiritual
When you journal, your mental body has to coordinate with the physical body in order to write. And the emotional body has to coordinate with the mental and physical bodies, in order to express what you are feeling.

As one coordinates the three bodies - emotional, physical, and mental - the spiritual and energy bodies are then able to align more efficiently because you are no longer being overly influenced by one body or the other. You want all bodies in balance with each other, bringing a much more expanded viewpoint of reality and yourself, ultimately experiencing then, the happiness, peace and contentment that comes along with such integration and understanding.

Another major benefit of journaling is that it gives you a simple, easy way to move through emotional upset, especially if you feel stuck.

When you are in emotional distress, often the antidote is using logic. Writing can provide a viewpoint - a broader perspective - that takes you through physical and emotional release, then helps you reach clearer levels of thought, so you can see your life situations more clearly, more realistically.

Journaling will also help you deepen your relationship to whatever issue you are processing. In other words, you begin to understand the issue at subtler levels. And you move from emotional upset and logical understanding to deeper and deeper levels of awareness, and transformation.

When you journal, take the time to enjoy the process. You might be surprised what percolates! When you feel the freedom to play with it, you might even find that you are being introduced to aspects of yourself waiting to be discovered and understood.

Some of the Benefits of Contemplation & Meditation

Why would one want to spend time contemplating or meditating or even playing with some of the suggestions here on the blog? Time and effort has value to you. Why use that which is of value in this way?

We have a saying "To the degree that one is in perception of oneself, is the degree one creates in one's reality".

What does that mean?

Perceptions create. Whatever perceptions one holds for oneself, whether understood or not, manifests in ways that are sometimes very obvious, more often, though, not.

Perceptions usually hold one into narrow points of view. By encouraging one to contemplate, we invite you to look at situations from different angles, hopefully beyond judgement and fear. By inviting you to do so, you don't have to believe in what we are saying. We are just suggesting one looks at a situation from different angles so that you can see that often times there are more choices available to you than you thought at first glance.

When you experience having choices, it also supports you in staying out of any victim pattern, fear and contraction.  Now, these choices may not seem viable. Initially it doesn't matter. What is important here is the training of the mind - to first seek different avenues or viewpoints which will help you from going into these all too familiar emotional 'knee-jerk' reactions which are rarely productive.

So, playing with these contemplations can have a much larger influence than one might think. It supports one in becoming a clearer creator of one's life. By looking at the same situation from many different angles, one engages one's intellect and emotions to help see the difference between concept, or perception, versus reality.
