"If the roots of all suffering are attachments to the external, the roots of true joy are found only within. This book maps the ways to a profound state of peace." --James Redfield
I hope you enjoy working with these simple principles. I promise that if you allow yourself to be open to exploring any one of them, you will find yourself with a smile on your face, happy to be alive here and now.
Here are a few ways we can support the world based on the material in 'Happiness Is Free' and the Sedona Method course:
From my perspective, you are supporting our world by Releasing (using the Sedona method) to correct your own problems and gain your own goals. Every feeling except love is a non-love feeling and therefore varying degrees of hatefulness. Lester used to say that one person with only love in their heart could do more to right the problems of the world than all the people who were actively trying to fix it. We all have love in our hearts just beneath our imagined limitations and every time that you Release on or about anything you are uncovering more of your basic loving nature. Also, I believe every time we let go we are dissolving limitation out of the mass consciousness not just our own.
When we first started teaching the Method in the mid-seventies I remember people wondering whether or not someone could use the Method to become more destructive to their world. In my experience over the years, no matter where someone may appear to be in their lives when they take the Method, they have a tendency to get only more constructive as they uncover their courageousness, acceptance and peace. The motivation to do things that most of us would consider destructive simply dissolves.
Beyond this natural occurrence as you Release, here are a couple of ways you can apply the Method to support the whole.
Hold the Best in Mind
Most of us, when we think of the world, do not have particularly positive pictures. All you have to do is watch or read the news to see what I mean. In fact I hear from many people that the news is a significant part of their daily stress. Yet most of us feel compelled to watch, read or hear the news so we can know what is going on. I have also noticed that many people simply stop watching the news in order not to be influenced by what they view as its negativity. I do not recommend that you obsess over the news however I also do not recommend that you cut off from it. What I do recommend is that as you hear or see the news allow yourself to let go of the feelings that it stirs up in you. And if there are things in the news that cause you to feel anxious and resistant let go of the resistance and fear and let go of your expectation for those things to happen as best you can.
Allow yourself to picture the world the way you would like it to be and let go of all the feelings inside of you that say it cannot or will not happen. At the same time do your best to accept it as it is by letting go of wanting to change it. The more you can accept the world exactly as it is the more you will be projecting love to the world. By doing this you can stay informed and at the same time you are contributing to the solution even if you do not take any outward action. And if you are going to take action.
Be for the Solution
Many of us, even with the best intentions, find ourselves being "anti" towards what we do not like in the world. Yet if we are "anti" something, we are still holding it in mind, sometimes even more strongly then those who are for it. From my perspective all the anti-war sentiment during the Vietnam War for instance did not bring about a quick end to the conflict it only prolonged it. Whatever we hold in mind we are sending energy to and are supporting its creation. Here are some practical examples: Instead of being against pollution, be pro-environment. Instead of being against discrimination, be pro-equality. Instead of being against war, be pro-peace. Hold in mind the solution as opposed to the problem and you will get a lot more done with a lot less effort and naturally be more constructive in the process.
