I was having a conversation with a friend yesterday, about how we can manage our thoughts, words, and actions during these “bat-shit-crazy” chaotic times. I offered up these three At-One-Ment cards to support the idea that, though we do not control the chaotic behavior of others, we do have total control over the chaos of our own behavior. When we are in alignment with our individual mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual health and wellness, we become so self-sufficient that it doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks, says, or does. Habitually managing ourselves into this alignment–at first consciously, and then subconsciously–we position ourselves to feel liberated from the influence of external informants. Yes, this is easier said than done. If it was easy, everyone would be doing it. However, once it is done, it becomes our preferred way of being, and in this the ease is achieved.
Give it a try. The worst that can happen is you get really annoyed. The best that can happen is you get annoyed enough to do something about it. Either way you are distracted from feeling hopeless long enough to actually create a shift toward feeling better.
