The reason you’re upset has nothing to do with the circumstances that are happening in the present moment.
You are never upset for the reason you think. You think you’re upset because somebody said something nasty to you or you lost money in the stock market. You had a car accident, your best friend got sick, whatever it is, and you think that’s what’s causing your upset.
This is a very common, typical experience for all of us. Yet, metaphysically, and also psychologically, the reason you’re upset has nothing to do with the circumstances that are happening in the present moment. It really has to do with a whole other aspect of your being.
If you understand this idea that you’re never upset for the reason you think, which is whatever is currently going on at the moment, your life will change entirely, I guarantee you, because this idea is central to discovering yourself as a spiritual being. As the great French philosopher Teilhard de Chardin said, we are spiritual beings having a temporary physical experience. That’s a paraphrase, but that’s the basic idea.
Whenever you think that you’re angry at, saddened by, afraid of, or outraged because of some current event, some person, some situation, et cetera, it is not the real cause. I know it sounds crazy, right? It’s not the real cause. It isn’t, because everything that causes you grief now is based on the belief that you are alone in the universe, I’ll repeat that. The reason that you’re upset at anything that’s happening is because you bought the belief that you are alone in the universe, that you must make it on your own, that nobody really cares about you. They’re doing their own thing and so you have to defend yourself against all of these things coming at you from outside.
Take that in because that’s huge. It’s huge.
I’ve been studying this for so many years that it’s almost automatic for me to recognize the minute I’m upset about something. I can’t say it’s completely true every time, but most of the time, as soon as I feel that strong emotion welling up, I can step back and say, “wait a second, this is not the cause of my upset. I’m upset because I think I am alone in the universe. I think that there’s no one to help me. I’ve forgotten that I am a holy being connected to the Source, and because of that I believe I am on my own, and that’s a scary place to be.” As soon as I remember that, the anger, all the fear, begins to dissipate and I come to peace.
So the real reason why I’m talking about these principles is because I’ve been speaking about being peaceful and calm and getting rid of anxiety and stress for years now but on a very surface level. But now I’m digging deep, digging deep because that’s what I was told to do by my Higher Self.
My guidance told me to stop beating around the bush and get down to business because this is the real way to experience joy in your life, have great relationships, have your business thrive, and observe your life flowing much more easily.
Now I’m not suggesting that everything is going to be perfect all the time. As long as you’re in a physical body, things are going to happen. But how you handle them will be totally different when you understand that you’re not upset because of that particular event. And that’s all I’m going to say about it now, because there is so much more to say and we don’t have the time or the room right now to do that.
But if you’re interested, I will be doing a webinar on August 21, 7 PM ET. I will be speaking about how you can recognize and develop the characteristics of a spiritual being. We’re all spiritual beings, but we don’t know it. No one tells us that in school. Have you ever had a teacher that told you you’re a spiritual being? I doubt it. I doubt it very much. I know I sure didn’t. Once you can rest in the certainty of your true nature as a spiritual being, you will begin to see vast changes in your life.
If you’re interested in finding out what it takes to be truly relaxed and optimistic, (that’s what spiritual beings are!) please send me a direct message on my Facebook, Instagram, or Linked In account with your email. You will receive the link to join the zoom call August 21, 7 PM ET.

Please look out for the announcement.
