This is a very interesting conversation with Timber Hawkeye. Check him out on the podcast The One You Feed Podcast. He also mentioned the movie Fight Club which I of course had to re-watch the awesome beginning of.
The things you own end up owning you – Tyler Durden
Yes. So many great parallels in the movie and my other favourite from 1999: The Matrix. What are you doing with our life and what is important? You decide how we react to our thoughts and feelings. You just have to train ourself to do so in a mindful way. It’s hard and even a master slips up at times. It’s only human. The important thing is that we keep trying. We also have challenge and rallying here in my small town of Varberg. It’s about the 100 year anniversary of the 1915 peace conference here called Varberg Calling for Peace. Timber’s thoughts resonates with how we must begin with ourselves to create peace.
You can be the best version of you It’s up to you It’s not about what you believe Your beliefs don’t make you a better person Your behaviour does
The movie Fight Club is about the 2 wolfs inside you. The eternal conflict between different parts of the brain. Our words have tremendous power and we have to be very gentle with them When we say I am anything. It becomes part of our identity … Pain is inevitable but suffering is optional
Without pain, without sacrifice, we would have nothing. Like the first monkey shot into space — Tyler Durden
Everything you experience becomes a story you tell yourself. You control what the story is about. It’s important not to believe everything we think and remember that feelings are not facts Observe them without identifying them. Don’t express your anger. Explain your anger. Anger is not always a bad thing. It can often propel us towards change or revolution. Just explain how you are feeling to yourself. The moment you raise your voice at someone is the moment you are no longer trying to make connection with them but you try to prove yourself right, yourself superior and them inferior How often does someone get your explanation better if you yell at them? Be the best version of yourself there is
You beliefs don’t make you a better person. Your behaviour does – Timber Hawkeye
Take small steps and change your behaviour in small steps. Be gentle with yourself. We are only human and we slip. Try again tomorrow and get better at it. Write down your core values and cross-reference them with your behaviour and you immediately see where you have work to do.
Write down your core values and cross-reference them with your behaviour in the world. Then you immediately see where you have work to do
