Life is so easy. Achieving happiness is simple. Making relationships rewarding and mutually fulfilling is easy.
If we have the clarity to see things as they are and have the capacity to deal with them.
Typically, though what happens is that through pressures of time or indecision we leave things mentally incomplete.
Over time all these little niggly things that we have never completed psychologically or physically, little tasks that need doing, resolving bitterness or guilt, gather like clutter in our minds. And there they get tangled up with each other. And so we feel overwhelmed and confused.
All these different little things nag away at you from time to time as you think ‘Oh, I must do that’. And so part of your focus, part of your mental ability gets taken up in all these different fragmented thoughts. As these mount higher and higher… you have less free mental energy to focus on what is in hand.
It’s like a computer. A computer has a processor, and RAM.
The processor is like what we call in humans, intelligence. Now for the most part, most computers have enough processing power to do most tasks. Just as most humans have enough intelligence to do most tasks.
RAM is what the computer or the person can cope with at one time. And it is this that usually crashes the computer or limits the person. We don’t make mistakes because we are stupid. We make mistakes when we exceed our RAM capabilities.
RAM is about management of ourself. Just as we shut down programs to free up more RAM on the computer we have to shut down irrelevant thoughts to free up mental energy.
If you can clear your mind and focus your thoughts, you’ll be able to direct 100% of your mental powers on the task at hand and so immediately dramatically improve your performance and upgrade your capacity.
But how do you do that?
You do it by getting your thoughts out of your head and down onto paper where you can see them, deal with them and let them go.
We only hold onto thoughts because emotionally we feel we have to or they won’t get dealt with. But once we get them on paper (or on the computer) and seperate them from the emotional power that they have on us… we can deal with them more easily and so release them.
So take a piece of paper (or your computer) and write down everything that comes into your head. All the silly little things that need doing. All your hopes, fears, guilt and bitterness. Keep writing until your mind is completely clear.
Then treat what you have written as if it were physical clutter. Either throw it away record it or process it. Make a to do list so you’ll remember tasks that need doing without having to take up valuable mental space.
Deal with your fears, resentments, anger and bitterness think around them and strip the emotion from them. Do whatever you need to so that you process them and let them go.
Make plans for your goals and dreams and add them to your to do list.
Once you have undergone this mental spring cleaning process, you’ll feel lighter and mentally more capable. From then on work at keeping this freshness and life will become so much easier.
Here’s some tools to help you, if you want to use your computer for this process.
