“FLAP YOUR WINGS!!! Let Go of the Story”

December 20, 2010 2 comments

Eckhart Tolle has enlightened us by describing how a duck’s fight plays out every time.

 According to Tolle, a duck’s fight, which never last very long, always finishes by both ducks flapping their wings and releasing all the tension and negative energy build up during the fight. After they Flap their wings, they separate and float off in opposite directions. That is exactly what we us humans often struggle to do with everyday people and situations.

“Flap your Wings!!! Which translates, Let Go of the Story” is a principle very difficult to live by. How many times we caught ourselves replaying in our head direct attacks or simply a rude comment that hurt our feelings? What we are actually doing is creating a story in our head that without us even noticing, builds up resentment and negativity in our most valuable treasure, THE NOW!!!

If we look closely, nature and the universe are full of very insightful life lessons. We should practice careful observation of our surroundings and LEARN!!!

Be AWARE of your thoughts. Once you’ve found yourself making a movie in your head, be PRESENT, experience those feelings/thoughts and notice what they do to your body internally.

Once you’ve become aware of the pain you are experiencing, ask yourself the following:

Would these thoughts help me in any way to feel better right now?

Would these thoughts help me to go back in time and prevent X situation from happening?

The answer will always be NO!!!

Once you’ve answered those questions using simple LOGIC, you should pull yourself together, close your eyes, take 3 deep breaths and…. FLAP YOUR WINGS!!! Let Go of the Story!!!

I’m telling you, I do this all the time and it works!!! This is the most important habit we should all learn to master in life. We do not live in a perfect world, and like my dear friend Fabiola mentioned in her article about the importance of having dreams, you will always encounter people on your path that will be determined to put you down simply because they’re down themselves.

The key is to not take it personal and ask GOD for STRENGHT to be able to FLAP YOUR WINGS EFFECTIVELY.

NEVER, NEVER, keep your eyes away from that goal you have. Obstacles and barriers to overcome will always be on our path. Conquering them all is what will prepare us to get where we want to be.

START TODAY!!! FLAP YOUR WINGS and stop carrying that past in your head and heart.


God Blessed,
