I think now is an important time for me to say a few things. Because things are going to get more and more scary for a few weeks and it’s important to keep some perspective. The way you use your mind, emotions, body, energy and attention will determine MOST of how you experience what is happening in the world now. Fortunately however, you actually have a fair amount of control over your inner world if you consciously start to work with those parts of you. I hope this gives you some perspective. Stay strong and stay home.
When I was a kid I developed some chronic health problems and as a kid it’s hard to know what it normal and what is aberrant. So you go about your life doing the best you can with what you have.
Over the years things got worse and worse and then after a surgery, which got infected, things got much much worse. A number of the people who said they would have my back not only didn’t help me but actively used that moment to attack me, my character, my worthiness and my manhood.
I promise I am not here to solicit sympathy or pity but to make an important point about difficult times. Bear with me for a moment and hopefully this quick version of the story will bear some useful fruit.
As I went through healing the health problems and my heart, I spent enormous amounts of time alone basically isolated. I was quite literally fighting for my life through a whole series of infections. I went through years of excruciating pain, crippling depression and inability to think straight or even remember much from the health problems I had messing with my brain, spine and neurotransmitters. And at least three times I felt myself crossing over to the other side, so to speak.
But, you know what, I am still here. I am now more myself than ever. I have an appreciation for life and an understanding of it that I have never seen in anyone else. And it is one of the big purposes of the Nytality work that I am doing to hopefully share that with people and to share the health and vitality methods I put together to get my health, my mind, my heart, my finances, my energies and my spirit not only healthy but actually to be thriving and exceedingly vital.
The way life and my experience of it feels to me is so wildly different now that I can’t even put it in words. And this is the reason I am telling a quick version of this story today.
Difficulty, pain, isolated time alone, some fear of the future, illness and suffering can be a wonderful catalyst to a truly beautiful change in your heart, mind, life and spirit.
It can actually be one of the best things to happen to you, if you can wisely ride the storm.
You are more resilient than you think. You have capacities, abilities and functions you haven’t learned to use yet. So hold tight during this time of trial, difficulty and fear. Love those around you. You can not only get through this but it can become a temple in which you grow the greatest parts of you.
While many of the people who I thought would be there for me weren’t. Some people I never would have expected helped me and if you look for it you’ll find solace and beauty in places you would never have seen before. One of those places is inside you. Now is a wonderful time to look inside and get to know yourself in a new and deeper way. There is great strength and resilience there. You will get through this time.
Keep moving forward and be quietly unstoppable.
