For many years I had trouble sleeping at night. The cause of this was anxiety.
Amazingly enough the cure for this anxiety was quite simple: I had to develop the skill to wisely embrace the guidance I am receiving from the world around me, and use my discrimination so as not to dominate this guidance. Needless to say it took me years of practice. Slowly but surely I started to discriminate in the moment, and creativity and joy was the effect!
The needed ingredient was I had to be in the NOW and trust the process of life. Actually life is in my heart and is forever inclusive. So at the end of the day from my experience I learned that it is about listening to my heart and then to DO what my heart tells me to do. Of course the mischievous monkey is trying all sorts of tricks in order to resist. But I found that this can be transmuted into creativity, by asking myself: "What if?" and then using my discrimination.
