Very well said pureflow!
[QUOTE=pureflow;86548]Getting comfortable with the moment , that is your goal. Getting comfortable with your discomfort , getting comfortable with your anxiety , with anything that comes up in the present moment. Try to loosen up , and if you are very tensed , no big deal , feel tensed for some time , how does it actualy feel , where can you feel it . Let it happen and get comfortable with that. We always feel we have to change something about the moment , ourselves , others . .. but for a moment just watch it .
More and more you get to know yourself you can start smiling at all these sensations , emotions and thoughts instead of reacting it should be observing , in a kind and loving way , as if you say to yourself when a negative emotion, thought or whatever comes up : " ahaa there is that thought again that comes up always , haha , and that emotion, yeah I know that one , oooh and look whos here , that little pain I had for so long , and that raging mind of mine , yeah yeah ... I know you , it's oke , just play.. "
Give it some space ...
Take it light and try to enjoy the adventure
PEace and good feelings.
