In my last post I described how we get upset when a motorist ‘beeps’ at us if we are slow to get moving when the light turns green.
Such a trivial event has the ability to disturb our equanimity.
What about more ‘serious’ events like your messy divorce proceeding, business reverses or career setbacks?
I am going to speak about an important step you can take to ‘let go’ of the inner disturbance that life produces so, so often.
Wanting to ‘let it go’ is not the same thing as being able to do so. I will say more about this in a future post.
So here is something that can help you.
Step 1: Examine your life as it is right now and make a list of all the things that disturb you with some predictability.
For example: you may are bothered by your daughter refusing to take college seriously and hanging out with a boyfriend you think unsuitable; or you get angry/depressed at how things are at work and feel your career has been derailed; or you have concerns about your relationship with your spouse and wonder if you should stay in your marriage; or whatever.
