Left unchecked, the strained mind will either start to react compulsively or think us into exhaustion undermining our confidence and leading us toward diminished performance, fatigue, restlessness, and anxiety.
THE TOXIN: MISGUIDED RUSH TO JUDGMENT
Our peace and performance goes down when we prematurely assign values and exercise judgements through polarized logic such as good vs bad, right vs wrong, rather than first cultivating the experiential acceptance of WHAT IS. When we judge ourselves, others, or situations without due process, we rush forward in a way that might produce some temporary feeling of being on the right track, but doesn’t authentically reflect life. As a result, we just end up creating a network of shallow logic and superficial answers. We ruminate endlessly or make ourselves or others miserable with what we think “should be.” We don’t take the time to be truly wise. This is why we often get the advice to “relax” and “slow down” from family and colleagues when we start to become distressed. Unfortunately, we rarely listen and often rush forward very fast to find ourselves becoming more aggressive, intolerant, and egotistical on the one side or more apathetic, avoidant and depressed on the other.
THE ANTIDOTE: CULTIVATION OF SPACIOUSNESS
By learning to just SIT, we can Sense and Integrate our polarizations as soon as they start to happen. We can slow down the rush to judgment, create space, and Transcend both sides of a polarity so we have “options” rather then being caught in the net of This VS That. SITMEDITATION offers us a pathway to create more space for authentic living and better decision making; it gives us an effective method to get out of our over identification with judgment-based-internal-narratives and into life as IT IS – rather than how we wish it was or could be. Through SITMEDITATION and its unique method of Experiential Acceptance and Applied Non-duality, life becomes an experience of sensing, integrating, and transcending. With SIT, you can free yourself from conceptual roadblocks and embrace an expanded capability for being present, loving and fully alive.
