One of my favorite simple go to tools from the 10 keys to Total Freedom is ‘Interesting point of view’ So what does this mean. If you are willing to consider the possibility that every thought, feeling and emotion is just an interesting point of view, you get to have total choice and function from a space of awareness and possibilities rather than limitations. When your being “Interesting point of view” judgment does not exist.
We are all seeking for that ease, peace, joy and a sense of possibility in our lives. We engage it several activities to have that as our reality. What if you had a simple tool you could use in every moment of your life.
A point of view is a position from which something is observed; it’s a particular way of looking at something. A point of view is different from awareness. What is awareness, you might ask? Awareness is seeing what you can see and not having a point of view about it. Everything just IS. Everything is just an interesting point of view. It is neither alignment and agreement, nor resistance and reaction. When you function from interesting point of view, you always get to be you. Everything is just an interesting point of view. It is neither wrong nor right nor good nor bad. Interesting point of view takes away all the power that anything pretending to be evil or that thinks it is evil have power over you. You don’t get to have any fixed points of view when you are being interesting point of view about everything. You then become willing and able to change any situation for greater.
We You get to be in ‘allowance’ of everything and keep choosing greater from awareness rather than your thoughts, feelings and emotions that limit us. You don’t get to have fixed points of view or function from conclusions and answers. The Universe desires to gift us everything we ask for. Are we willing to receive everything with no point of view. If we didn’t conclude that we have to choose this ,we have to be this, we have to align and agree or resist and react to protect ourselves would be then be limiting what we can receive. What if the Universe desired to gift you far more than what your willing to receive. Is that a possibility, yes if your being “interesting point of view” about everything you get to have total choice, you get to receive far greater you think is possible.
Last week a dear friend of mine gave in to alcohol after being sober for a few good years. Being a friend and more than willing to assist her with the situation, I found myself taking a fixed point of view of what needs to be done from a space of ‘I care for you’ and therefore. The more I was choosing to have a fixed point of view about it, I found that my friend resisted it all the more not allowing a space to change it. I used the tool ‘interesting point of view’ I have this point of view for every thought, feeling and emotion I had about her and the situation and also did “IPOV” for the reasons and justifications she was functioning from to prove why or how she chose alcohol as a last resort and how she couldn’t change the situation.
I chose allowance instead while being there for her when she needed me. Interesting choice she is making at the moment, What else is possible here? When I got over the need to align and agree or resist and react a new space opened up for her to make a different choice. I gave her this tool to use, everything she had a thought or feeling or emotion that told her ‘it’s ok to have that one last drink’ This created a change for her, this opened different doors of possibility for her to choose. To recognize you have the power to choose can be extremely liberating. And her commitment to choose to be sober this time around was different. She is not choosing to be sober for someone else this time around, she was choosing it for her. Different reality showed up.
When you being ‘interesting point of view’ about everything, you are empowered with the tool of ‘CHOICE’. If you would like to play with the molecules of the Universe from a space of curiosity and adventure of life and living… I invite you to use this tool for every thought feeling and emotion for 6 months and you will set yourself free. To start with what if you practiced for an hour everyday.
So when you wake up in the morning and you see yourself in the mirror and find yourself judging your body about anything, for instance, am fat, am getting wrinkles whatever that is your judging your body about, just say Interesting point of view, I have this point of view. Your having coffee with a friend and they pass a comment like, you should stop eating so much chocolate or you should stop seeing this person, or this friend said this about you to me, just say in your mind interesting point of view she has this point of view. You will find yourself functioning beyond the polarity of right and wrong, good and bad and will choose from what truly works for you and what will create more for you. In that, you will have gratitude and allowance for everything and everyone.
If you do this for every thought, feeling and emotion and point of view you have for 6 months, you will never had a problem again for the rest of your life.
