Rule: Releasing Option is the Only Option
Shantha had a very unfriendly neighbour in Gita.
She never felt comfortable to approach Gita for any obligation as she is a very fussy person and gets easily irritated.
She Had a Visitor
One day she had a late night visitor. The guest didn’t give Shantha any notice, a norm in this part of the world.
Therefore, Shantha wasn’t ready to handle the situation. Of course, that doesn’t mean she can treat the guest shabbily.
Shantha wanted some stuff to make sure the dinner is special and a good treat for her guest. Unfortunately the shops were closed as it was late night.
Will My Friendly Neighbour Help?
She was sure that Gita could help. But will Gita oblige Shantha at this late hour, when she is so fussy during normal times.
So she had two options: one is to approach Gita and another is to apply the RULE on her emotions and thoughts about Gita. The later option seemed to be easier for Shantha.
She did the RULE for few minutes.
Then There Was One More Visitor
While she was doing the RULE guess what, she had another visitor. It was none other than Gita. Having seen the guest in Shantha’s house she was curious to find out whether she could be of any help to Shantha!!!
How Shantha Executed the RULE: Releasing Act
She had a conversation within herself.
Can I release the fear about Gita? Yes. I just release this fear now.
But there is some more fear. How much can I release – around 30%? No, may be 10%. Yes. I can release 10% of the remaining fear.
Can I release 10% more?
(Like wise, she could release 30% of her fears. Even then she was feeling uncomfortable.)
Release Predominant Thoughts About Situation
She watched her mind. Only one thought repeatedly was going on inside her mind, “Will Gita shout at me if I approach her for help?”.
Ok shall I release that thought part by part? “Yes I can”.
Will I first release the word “shout” from the thought? Yes, I can. I release the word “shout”.
Shall I release “will she “, yes I can. Therefore I release, “will she”.
What are the remaining words?
This question will put off the mind and the whole thought will vanish.
If we do this way, thought becomes meaningless and it will be released automatically.
After the words are released individually like this, she became immediately peaceful.
As soon as that happens, then enters our heroine Gita. Is there is a coincidence. Try it out, you will know.
