- Eckhart Tolle, German spiritual teacher and author

Do you know someone who seems to take pleasure in causing suffering and making other people unhappy? A few years ago, I was given the opportunity to be involved in a business venture with someone like this whose modus operandi was deceit, greed and constant attacks on others, all done in the course of running his so-called 'business', which unsurprisingly, still hasn't generated any revenue four years later, but has taken millions of pounds of investors' money.

Perhaps you know someone like this whose main purpose in life seems to be to spread misery and unhappiness. And perhaps this person has caused or continues to arouse feelings of anger and resentment in you, which seem to be entirely justified based on their outrageously unacceptable behaviour.

But ask yourself if these thoughts and feelings are really helpful or if they actually only cause you to suffer, which gives this person the power to negatively affect you and your life even when you are not physically in their presence or communicating with them. And consider that, if you do consciously choose to let these negative thoughts and emotions they arouse in you go, then this person has really done you an invaluable service by helping you to see and experience your own darkness and release it.

This is why I said earlier that I was given the 'opportunity' to meet and work with this person and why Eckhart Tolle says that these kinds of negative people are playing a role in the awakening of humanity as intensifiers of the nightmare of egoic consciousness - they help us to see clearly the horrible effects of the ego's thought system and make an equally clear choice to let it go.

This mirroring effect in human relationships is the quickest way to 'see' your own ego and free yourself from it and all its ill effects, so you should really be grateful to people who seem to be especially evil and out to 'push all your buttons' as they represent great forgiveness opportunities which, if you take them, will lead you to experience the state of unshakeable happiness and peace called enlightenment.

If you struggle to forgive people who have seemingly wronged you, I'd like to Give You a Ten-step Letting Go Process I've created based on over 13 years of studying and teaching the most profound spiritual teaching and book on the planet.

I've also recorded a Guided Letting Go Theta Meditation that will take you into a deep state of meditation and guide you through this Ten-step Letting Go Process.


I'll also be running another Free Webinar this week Thursday from 7 pm UK time (8 pm SA time) during which I'll be guiding those who join the Webinar through the Ten-step Letting Go Process.  


Until next week, try practising the Ten-Step Letting Go technique whenever you feel angry or upset with someone because of what they've said or done. And you can use it to deep-clean your mind of any resentment you may still be feeling towards someone whom you perceive really treated you badly in the past. 

I'm sure you'll find it very helpful in finding the peace of mind that comes from practising true forgiveness. Please do post your comments about your 'forays in forgiveness' on the main page of this Blog. As they say in the Star Wars movies, "May the Force be with you!"

- Charles B. Anderson, American Spiritual Teacher and Author

This simple quote beautifully captures the basic law governing all relationships in this world: other people and our relationships to them are really mirrors in which we see our own flaws and imperfections reflected back to us.
Our egos would then have us blame and judge the other person or people for the very faults that are also our own, a neat trick that keeps our false separate identity based on guilt and sin alive and our sense of separation from the person or people intact. All of which will never make us happy, but then that is not the purpose of these special relationships for the ego - in fact it's purpose is to make you as miserable as possible because happiness is the biggest threat to the the ego's existence.

The only way out of this trap that even the most 'spiritual' of people (myself included) fall into over and over again is True Forgiveness, or as I prefer calling it, 'Letting Go' because it's less easily misunderstood. Whenever you truly forgive or let go, you will see beyond the illusion of separation, guilt and sin to the truth that everyone is in essence the same, as we have the same ultimate Source and Identity, That which Is the formless Essence of all Life.
So next time you want to judge and condemn someone for their faults and not loving you as you feel you deserve, ask yourself if you really want to judge and condemn yourself, which is what you're really doing, and forgive them instead.

If you feel you need some help with this, you can Get Immediate Access to a Powerful Ten-step Letting Go Process I've created based on over 13 years of intensively studying the most profound Spiritual Teaching on the planet by Clicking Here.

Then give them the love you feel you deserve, even if how they've behaved doesn't seem to make them deserving of your love, because their unloving behaviour is really just your own lack of self-love being reflected back to you and the most powerful way to start loving yourself is to start forgiving and loving the people who are closest to you.

Until next week, try seeing only love or a call for love and responding only with love to every person and situation.

- Eckhart Tolle, German Spiritual Teacher and Author

I love this quote by Eckhart Tolle, which beautifully encapsulates the power of simply becoming conscious of the most basic thing we all do thousands of times every day to keep us alive, but which most people do completely unconsciously: Breathe. If you're familiar with the unruly nature of what Buddhists call the 'Monkey Mind', you'll know how difficult it is to stop its incessant and useless chatter that only disturbs your peace of mind.

Trying to stop it directly is like saying to your mind, 'Don't think of pink elephants'. The first thing you'll think about when you try not to think of pink elephants is... pink elephants! So trying not to think about something doesn't work and seems only to make the monkey mind more determined to engage in its idle thoughts. The way to overcome its chatter is to give it something else to focus on, just as you would give a barking dog a bone to chew to shut it up, and the simplest, most ever-present thing you can focus it on is... your Breath.

Breathing deeply and slowly through your nose while you focus all your attention on your breathing for a few minutes will help you to quieten your mind, let your idle thoughts go and find the calm and serenity that transcend them. This is the true level of the Mind where negative thoughts and the toxic emotions they engender cannot enter and it feels happy and at peace.

For the next week, try practising this little breathing meditation exercise for a minute or two whenever you're feeling like your monkey mind is getting out of control, as well as for 10 uninterrupted minutes at least once (and preferably twice) a day - the early morning just after you've woken up and early evening are both good times to do it.

If you find these simple exercises helpful and you want to explore the benefits of conscious breathing in more depth, join me this coming Thursday evening for a FREE Webinar I'll be giving that will show you How to Let Go of Any Negative Thought or Emotion in Minutes and Find Your Flow in Life by Harnessing the Power of Your Breath.


Until next week's post, remember Just to Breathe when your monkey mind gets up to its tricks so you can put it back in the box where it belongs and ultimately, banish it completely from your Mind.

You see, Learning to Control Your Breath is the Quickest and Easiest Way to Learn to Control Your Mind. That's how powerful this simple thing you've taken for granted all your life, but which keeps you alive minute by minute, really is.

I'll be helping the people who Join the Webinar this Thursday to explore the Power of their Breath experientially by guiding them through a couple of simple but powerful breathing exercises. If you'd like to be one of them, Click Here.

Have an inspired week ahead and remember whenever you become aware of any negative thought or emotion, instead of stressing or fretting - Just Breathe Deeply, Let Go and Find Your Flow...

Yours in Flow
