An Inspiring Story
It was my 63rd "Stinking Thinking Hangout" at the homeless shelter today. One person appeared... a repeat from a couple of past sessions, and someone who happens to have spent 20 years in maximum security in prison for killing a couple of people, but more importantly, a human being, subject to the innocent belief in his made up thinking, exactly as we all are. Being away on holiday, I hadn't seen him for a few weeks, but in our last session, I left him with a copy of the Enlightened Gardener.

When he came back in today, he talked about how much the book meant to him, and what he had seen, and how it made so much sense. I kept on smiling and laughing as I heard the things he was saying.... "We are nothing and everything. This is too big for words. No one can tell the truth. It's not in the words. I don't have to get lost in my thinking... I can just defuse it. Instead of fighting back, I'm just not interested... I'm calm and clear... and when I'm calm, then they also no longer want to fight me. Our mind is like a computer... what goes in is what comes out. The belief that there's no hope is not true. I can do anything".

What made it even more amusing was at the end of the hangout, when we spent a bit of time watching a Syd Banks video, he turned to me and said... "He's saying everything I just said." I simply smiled and said "Yes, I know."

Thank you Syd.

Hey there, welcome back! Let's touch base soon. I had a virtual ticket to the conference. Have only just been able to start watching the clips. Way, way cool! Reminds me of our walk over to the chicken place. LOL

Hi Jonelle, just started reading this site-thank you so much. I have a question I hope you can answer for me: are emotions & feelings the same thing?
