Life Math = The Universe
Actions + Symbols + Intent = Common outcome - Met Goal
If you say you want to lose weight, but don't stop eating, or start working out, you're not going to make much progress. BUT IT MEANS THE OPPOSITE is actually also true.
And we've seen it happen. Some people actually work out, and they eat better (not alternating bingeing/dieting), and they hit a plateau that seems nigh unbreakable for the amount of effort they're putting in. And in my opinion, the variables here really imply that being the main contributing factor to people who fall into that part of the equation.
(Consistency + Action) + (Words/music/) + (Alignment- and Discernment-Fueled Intention) = Personal Reprogramming (Habit Forming/Self Discipline)
Methods of Mindfulness
What if you had to dedicate yourself to each task fully, without constantly metaphorically running 12 windows a music player and 3 instances of adobe photoshop inside your head computer?
Meditation is kind of about Being. And that's good. But mindful action is a solid second, and you're already doing some existing, so we might as well figure out how to start picking gratitude .
Forward motion on a new set of habits, even if they're eensy weensy, kind of has its own basic needs you have to get covered before you can expect shit to start happen. In fact, expecting anything or having a weight or pressure on a creative (nonrobotic) function, is the exact opposite of what you need to succeed. It's the same thing as writer's block. The "freeze" part of the fight/flight dichotomy that most people forget to talk about because everyone just wants to call everyone else lazy. Yes laziness and resentfulness go hand in hand. Edits/updates to come.
On Higher Power
I call it the universe, capital The capital Connection, alignment, sweet baby Jesus, Goddess, or magic, interchangeably. The word itself doesn't matter.
You might call it common sense, faith, God or some variation thereof. The fact is, I don't believe anything. I was never taught to. I can only suspend my disbelief for now until I find and repair my trust centers. But the fact is, the math doesn't really lie, and this is my attempt to explain myself from that angle.
