In this video, we understand that when we come into physical form in this physical world, our heart is the first organ to appear. It is the first organ which develops in a human fetus. It is often called “the seat of the soul” because the human heart is the first interface between our non physical soul and our physical body. Its electromagnetic field is unparalleled.
When we are able to get in touch with our hearts, we will then be able to get in touch with our higher selves (the eternal, benevolent essence that we truly are) which is the true goal of spirituality.
The purpose of living a spiritual life is about loving much, not about knowing much. It is about getting in touch with our highest and truest self. It is about opening out heart to others, that “enemy” is not a concept which exists in our reality. And more than that, it is about opening the heart and living from the heart to such a degree that eventually there is also no such concept in our life as “other”.
Living from the heart is important because it makes us appreciate life and other people around us more. Instead of expecting more, we appreciate more. I talked about this in my previous post about my favorite lessons from Tony Robbins. Make sure you read it too.
Are you a fan of Tony Robbins? If you are then you will relate to these lessons I am about to share. I am a big fan of Tony and his works. Here are the lessons that I learned:
#1. Trade your expectation for appreciation.
I don’t know about you but for me, I like setting goal and achieving it. You can call it the “achiever mindset”. The problem with this, in my opinion, is when you achieve your goal, you always look for the next level. You spend little time to celebrate or appreciate it.
My happiness was depended on the achievement of my goal. When I get the outcome I want, I am a happy person, but when I don’t, I’m very upset. The worse thing is that even when I achieve my goal and be happy, that happiness didn’t last long. Then I find myself being bored and find something else to go after again.
Before, I expect more than I appreciate. Now I appreciate more. I appreciate the journey, the failure, the lessons and every moment of my life. This is it. I learn to enjoy my life more wherever I go. I learn to cultivate more gratitude into my life and count my blessings.
“Trade your expectations for appreciation and your whole world changes in an instant.” – Tony Robbins.
#2. The six human needs
I learned about this at Date With Destiny event. Everything we do and every decision we make is to meet one or more of our six human needs. If you don’t know about the 6 human needs yet, watch this video here:
Tony says that there are 6 basic fundamental human needs that we all have. We usually value two out of the six most when it comes to making our decisions. Here they are:
Certainty – Feeling of assurance that you can avoid pain and gain pleasure
Uncertainty/Variety—the need for the change/surprise/difference
Significance—feeling important and special or unique
Connection/Love—you probably know what this means.
Growth—as we all know, if you’re not growing you’re dying.
Contribution—a sense that we make a difference in someone’s life. As we all know, life is not about “me”, it’s about “we”
Out of the six human needs, I value significance and growth most. This is probably the reason why I’m being hard on myself and not allowing myself to be happy. But I learn to change it. What about you? Which one of the six do you value the most?
#3. Change your story
We all have our own stories about all areas of life, whether it be finance, relationship, health, fitness etc… The question is whether our story empowers us to get what we want or destroys our chance of having success. Most of the time, we are unaware of our stories and patterns and we let them dictate our future. Let’s say you want to achieve financial freedom, then you ask yourself why you haven’t achieved it yet, your answer to this question is the story you keep on telling yourself.
Find out what your story is and decide if you need to change it. Some people just don’t want to let go of their story, even though it doesn’t support them. If your story doesn’t serve you, make a decision today that you will change your story.
‘It is your decisions, and not your conditions, that determine your destiny.’ – Tony Robbins
There you have it! That’s my three favorite lessons I learn from Tony Robbins and his events. What have you learned from him? Be sure to check these reviews from other people too.
In this video, Dr. Demartini will explain how to win the battle between our heart and our head. What makes us unfulfilled is when we are not living according to our highest values. When we live according to our lowest values, we look for immediate gratification and that will lead to unfulfillment. Make sure you watch this video til the end to get the full insights from John.
