Attitudinal Healing Talk January 18 2016
“The compulsive thinker, which means almost everyone, lives in a state of apparent separateness, in an insanely complex world of continuous problems and conflict, a world that reflects the ever-increasing fragmentation of the mind.”
– Eckhart Tolle
We can focus on the whole of life rather than the fragments. (From the Principles of Attitudinal Healing)
Often we make a decision about something or someone based on partial information. However, to have consistent peace of mind, we need to find a way to shift our perception so we see our experience in a new way. Usually this means we have to keep ‘stepping back’ (so to speak) in our mind and question old assumptions and beliefs. As we do this, we can then come to those ‘aha’ moments where we realize that we have been creating a story about the events in our life based on looking at ‘fragments’ rather than the ‘whole.’
With the practice of Attitudinal Healing we began to shift from a partial, distorted perception based on incomplete information to a whole new vision.
Listen to this talk where we realized how often we see our lives from a place of fragmentation which is really a stance of fear. However, as our group joined together in a common purpose of healing, a sense of joy and laughter burst through and dissolved all the fear! And what emerged were wonderful examples of how ‘seeing the whole’ bestows gifts of peace, love, clarity and forgiveness.
