“To help your mind relax, change your hostile attitude towards your mind. Instead of saying: “Oh no, here’s that thought and feeling again!” say, “Okay, I see the thought, I see my frustration, and I know that it will pass. I trust that existence knows when it’s the right time for me to wake up and it will give me the gift when I’m ready.” This kind of attitude will bring you closer to your being, which is always peaceful. Keep remind yourself that everything in life is transitory.
Watch your thoughts when you feel happy, and watch them when you feel sad or frustrated. Remember, just as the positive thoughts and feelings pass, the negative thoughts and feelings also pass…When you remain a witness to both the ups and downs of life, you relax. You know that when you are experiencing a peak, a valley will soon follow. Witnessing everything allows you to let go of your attachment to any outcome and accept life with all its colors.”
Eliza Mada Dalian, in “In Search of the Miraculous”
