It’s a Freeday!

It’s Sunday again. A day on which we are usually freer than we are on other days.

This Sunday, let us free ourselves from the addiction to thinking.

When we identify ourselves too much with our thinking, we are either in the past or in the future. We are reliving our past moments. Or trying to find ways to fulfill ourselves in the future (Ex. When this happens, I will be happy). The present moment hardly exists for us in such a case. We do not experience things as they are unfolding.

Thinking is a part of our life. Let us not make it our life.

Happy Sunday!

Letting go

Are you fretting over a team member who resigned and joined another team or organization?
A student who left your class/school and joined elsewhere?
A business partner who wants to do something different?
A child who has relocated to a distant place for work?

We hold on. We try to control. Things. Situations. People and relationships.

Every individual has their own journey. Our paths may cross. We may spend time together. May be even for many years. But that doesn’t mean we own the other person or can control them. Or somebody owns us or can control us.

Learn to let go.

It releases things that block our happiness. Brings back focus to the present moment. Acts as a fertile ground for fresh beginnings.

Freedom from time

“I know many time management frameworks and techniques. But I feel trapped in time”, said one of the CXOs I was coaching.

How does one free oneself from time?

We are often either preoccupied with our past or with the future. The past is gone. The future is yet to come. Yet we live through past memories or anticipated future states.

The key to freeing ourselves is to understand that what we truly have with us is just the present moment, the “now”. Nothing happened in the past. Nothing will happen in the future. Everything happens only in the now.
