Aaron Turner, Ph.D., reminds us with humor and wisdom that we're only ever up against our thinking and that we're always living in the experience of thought. It's powerful to understand how this is universal so as to not try to "beat the system". While we can't escape the way the mind works, we understand how it works so we can open to our deeper knowing and see beyond our conditioned thinking.
Aaron learned this understanding from his uncle and aunt, George and Linda Pransky, and while he was skeptical of its truth and impact at first, after seeing George work with a couple, he was floored by his results. Aaron ended up joining the Pranskys' practice and helped countless people wake up to their innate capacity for clarity of mind, transforming businesses and relationships.
If we can see our upset as a symptom of our disturbed mind instead of something or someone outside of ourselves, we actually, ironically, free ourselves. When we understand how our experience is created and embrace the fullness of who we are beyond our thoughts and feelings, this impacts every area of life.
This episode explores:
- How the understanding behind the rewilding metaphor applies to everything
- Our ex-factor is how we relate to our thoughts
- It is freeing to stop blaming people and things outside of us for our feelings
