Be an observer of life

I was driving in my car the other day while listening to Stuart Wilde´s Infinite Self recordings and he was talking about being an observer of life. This phrase really resonated with me because we are usually pretty caught up in emotions and react to everything. We live in a reactive way of life instead of accepting reality - Life just is. There is no positive or negative situation, there are just situations and we taint them with our emotions and make them either good or bad, positive or negative, happy or sad... you name the emotion but it is definitely our emotions that determine the quality of how we perceive the experiences and not the experience itself. 

Stuart kept saying that we need to let go of our ego self and just do life. For example, if you wake up one morning and your car is not there, just say to yourself "Today I am doing walking." If you are stuck in a traffic jam, just say "Today I am doing traffic." Just do life! Whatever it is put in our way, don´t react, just observe and let go of your expectation of what you need for that particular moment because it is usually our ego that had determined what the ego needs and whatever does not follow those needs is bad and creates emotions. 

This concept is easier said than done of course! This past week, I was just trying to do life. Yes, a friend may be acting stupid so I would say... today I am doing stupid so and so. The air conditioning in my house broke down so that day I did overheating and trying to stay cool that day. The door in the shower broke so I was doing towel to prevent water to come out. It was interesting to realize how much I react to life instead of just accepting what it is.... we can not change the events in our lives but we can definitely change our responses to those events. If something makes you really angry, stop and think why are you getting so angry? Can you just do life? Can you just accept that it is what it is and move on? We spend a lot of energy reacting and getting emotional but we are not our emotions, we are divine beings, we are sacred. 

We also spend a lot of energy trying to change others into what our expectations of them are. Why would we expect so and so to do something different when he or she has always done the same? The definition of insanity is doing the same thing again and again and expecting a different result. When we don´t get that result, we get angry, depressed, sad, or any other emotion you may have. 

It´s time we become an observer of life and not a reactive monkey trying to control situations or people to meet our ego expectations. They are who they are. Life is what it is. Just accept it and let go of your need so you will become and observer of life and have more energy to manifest your reality instead of leaking it in unnecessary emotions.
