There is one phrase that makes you unhappy. Give up saying this phrase and you will be happy instantly.
“This Shouldn’t Be!”
Nobody escapes this fatal mistake of perception. Each of us arrogantly believes that we are the rulers of the universe. Each of us secretly believes that we are right about life. We actually have the audacity to believe that what we think is right and what the world is doing is wrong.
This prevailing mindset is born of ignorance. It is ignorant to believe that you know how people should be or how life should be. Life is lifing along… doing what it’s doing… regardless of your opinion about it. Yet, The Drunk Monkey in your head has an opinion about everything… including things it knows nothing about.
When you say, “This shouldn’t be!” you resist what “is” as if your resistance will actually make a difference. It never does. It only makes you feel bad. Negativity is the resistance you have to how life actually is. If you want less negativity in life and more happiness, then you must let life be exactly the way that it is… and then make new decisions from there. Let life and people be exactly as they are, then move forward from there.
The Drunk Monkey believes that it’s job is to be the dictator of the planet and tell everyone what to do. This only leads to suffereing. No one cares about what you think or how you see the world. Haven’t you noticed that by now?
The antidote is to simply be honest and admit, “This must be perfect. It isn’t what I prefer but no one cares about my preferences but me. So how do I turn this situation into something positive for me.” This takes mental conditioning. You must be surrounded by people who are also being honest and declaring that the world is perfect and the only thing that makes it imperfect is their opinion. You must keep listening to lectures about the subject, reading books and taking classes.
Eventually an powerful commitment to declaring the world is perfect exactly as it is will catapult you into an infinite space of peace, flow and happiness. From there, you will become more productive and more powerful then you have ever been in your life. Isn’t that cool? Try it today.
