Why certain areas of
life don't work

Video 3, Part 1 - The Mastery of Life Video Course



There is the reality of life and there is our reality. In the reality of life, things just are. What’s so is what’s so. What happened is what happened. Period. Then there is our reality. Our reality consists of thoughts, feelings, emotion, and points of view. In other words, there is the truth and there are our feelings and opinions about it.

If there is any relationship or any area of your life that isn’t working, there is a truth that you are fighting. Instead of focusing on what needs to be done based on the truth, the focus is on resisting. This creates a state of fear, upset and tunnel vision. It destroys your ability to see what needs to be done and it magnifies the problem. The moment you let go of the resisting, you restore your ability to see clearly. Solutions appear and this area of life starts clearing up.


  1. Notice the difference between your reality and the reality of life
    Find a time when you were upset and notice how totally irrelevant your feelings were. No matter how much you hated what happened, it still happened. Your feelings can affect your future actions but they don’t change the truth. What’s so is still what’s so. Notice the huge difference between the truth and your feelings about it.
  2. Look at any area of your life that isn't working
    This is an area where you are fighting the truth. Instead of focusing on what needs to be done based on the truth of your situation, your focus is on resisting. Instead of finding solutions, you magnify the problem. This is why the suffering continues. Find examples of this in your life.
  3. Now look at the areas of your life that work great
    These are areas where you can flow with whatever happens. Things happen that you don't like, but you don't get hooked. You see your situation clearly and can see what needs to be done. When you flow with life, you automatically look in a direction where solutions show up. Look in your life and see that this is true. Notice how much more effective you are when you flow with life.
