When things change it opens up space. Space in your mind, your environment, your beliefs, and your possibilities. 

You can focus on what you’re losing, what’s going away, how “hard” it will be or what you don’t like about the changes. You can also focus on what you’re gaining, what’s emerging, how “fun” it will be to learn and grow, and what you enjoy about the changes.  

Depending on what you focus on, your experience will follow. Feelings always follow thoughts. It’s not the other way around. When we think certain thoughts, it produces certain feelings which reinforce the thoughts and dictate our experience. With enough practice, we don’t notice any connection and think our experience is the “truth” instead of the result of our thinking.  

When you realize the only thing between you and bliss is your thinking, you are free.  

Having practices to sustain bliss more often…that’s the trick. Otherwise, you need to keep changing (abandoning, quitting, testing) things to make up for your faulty thinking.  

Want to be happy? Think again.
