Outside events and people can of course make our lives difficult but so much of our stress and anger and unhappiness come from our own responses to all these things that happen outside of ourselves. We cannot control other people or everything about the world around us, but we can control how we react to it.
What we choose to think about and feel about these things that happen around us or to us.
Find a very comfortable place to sit or lie down. So you won’t have to think of your body directly for this meditation. You want to place where you can just travel in your mind and spirit letting your body rest comfortably wherever you choose.
Now close your eyes and as always breathe in.
Let us start with something simple so you can understand and feel what I am explaining when you are totally relaxed. Try to remember something that has happened in the last day or two something small something. That was not nice like someone maybe your sister called you a bad name.
Do not move your body or get tense or upset. Just think about this little thing that happened as if you were someone else a stranger just watching this scene happen. You’re angry sister calling you something nasty means nothing to that stranger.
Just something one kid said to another breathe in.
