Daily Dose for the Soul

As you encounter stress, pressure, or anxiety in your life, remember at the moment you realize you’re thinking stressful thoughts. By noticing and discontinuing the inner dialogue that’s causing stress, you may be able to prevent its physical symptoms. What are the inner thoughts that produce stress? I’m more important than those around me. My expectations aren’t being met. I shouldn’t have to wait, I’m too important. I’m the customer here, and I demand attention. No one else has these pressures. You aren’t your work, your accomplishments, your possessions, your home, your family . . . your anything. You’re an aspect of the power of intention, dressed in a physical human body intended to experience and enjoy life on Earth. This is the intention that you want to bring to the presence of stress.

To fulfill the intention of living a stress-free and tranquil life, you must become conscious of the need to activate thought responses that match your intention. These new responses will become habitual, and replace your old habit of responding in stress-producing ways. When you examine segments of stress-producing incidents, you always have a choice: Do I stay with thoughts that produce stress within me, or do I work to activate thoughts that make stress impossible?

      Well said Kritika. When our behaviors match our intentions, when our actions are equal to our thoughts, when our minds and our bodies are working together, when our words and our deeds are aligned.

      Thank you Ivan. You can label your thoughts with greater depth by classifying them according to their function. Thoughts that can be labeled as “judgment,” “planning,” “fear,” and “remembering,” for example, may drift into your awareness. Label them, and let them go.

      Yes you are right. As mentioned, one of the reasons why setting daily intentions matters is because it helps us focus on our goals. It serves as our roadmap so even when the process is slow, we know we’re on the right track. That said, being more intentional to do the work and be productive is key.
