We discover we’ve found what we’re looking for in life when it falls on us from the sky. This is how TM has been, but I didn’t know how much TM had changed me until recently.
I’ve always dealt with challenges badly.
Things which didn’t go the way I wanted them to, or when something happened which wasn’t in my control, these things always made me lash out at whomever I believed was responsible.
A lot of the times it has been my wife. This happened not because of her, but because I wasn’t in control. I’ve never hit her, but words are worse than fists, as I know from my childhood.
We’ve had a storage unit for a long time, longer than we wanted, but that’s what happens when you have kids, get older and don’t want to throw stuff away.
We kept our Christmas stuff, childhood toys and a few other things in there, but we’d always paid it…
A couple of weeks ago, I was looking through our banks statements and noticed the money for the unit hadn’t come out in a while.
My wife checked on it, and it hadn’t been paid in a long time.
My wife called me at work, needing to talk to me about it.
Never have I felt like TM had changed me so much as when I talked to her on the phone that night.
She explained what happened, my response, “It’s just stuff, we can replace stuff. Are you okay?”
Before TM, I would have yelled screamed and might not have come home.
We’ve talked about it since and we both agree, I would never have been as calm without TM.
All of the things we collect in life are just stuff. There’s nothing more important than the people sharing your life.
Remember when you get angry to take a step back and think, “How will this effect our relationship?”
When you look at who you are; are you happy with how you act towards others? Do you find joy when you’re discussing your life with others? And most important, Are you happy with who you are?
Five months ago I would say no to each of those. Today, I find more peace in talking to people, but nothing gets me upset, not like before TM.
I’ve found my happy place. I’ve discovered where I’m supposed to be and what I should be doing with my life.
TM has rewired who I am, and I no longer worry about my temper, because it’s no longer there.
