“You are entitled to action only. This is the Law of Karma. Leave the fruit to me” – says Krishna.
A simple way to implement it
Living with Awareness is an important subject. If you apply this technique, you do not need attend lectures on Bhagavat Gita.
Living with awareness is a life process. If it is done regularly, it can change our lives significantly.
Do it systematically.
Play it like a game. Do not think it as an exercise.
To put it simple, you release all thoughts and feelings prior to action.
Releasing thoughts associated with an action
You get a phone call.
We assume it is a bad call.
We think and get irritated, why I should get such calls during late nights.
Can you release this irritation? Affirm, “I let go this irritation”.
Our actions are contaminated with unwanted thoughts
Whenever you are about to perform an action, it is preceded by thoughts.
Release those thoughts.
That’s does not mean you are prevented from doing the action. You just do the action.
Then you are in the present – without any thought, and only doing actions.
If some other thoughts come, tell them, “You can come later. This is not the time for you now.”
If you do any action, without any thought or feeling, then its 100 percent completed.
You are entitled only to act
You are not entitled to think or feel before an action.
If you tell the thought to go, it will go.
After the action, if the results are not to our expectations, we will comment badly about concerned people. We will remark, “I wasted so much time with them”.
Affirm then, “I release the thought. I let go this thought.”
When you put a counter thought like this, the mind gets confused as it cannot continuously change its thought flow or pattern.
After releasing all the thoughts that appears in your mind, comes the time for your action(s).
Satya’s servant was absent for a week.
Her younger sister Viji asked Satya to look after the household work and said, “You are making less money than me. So I think you should take care of the house today”.
As one would expect, Satya was very upset. However, she couldn’t say ‘No’ to her sister.
She decided to try the 1% release technique (see below).
She released her feelings and emotions one percent at a time. She did this until she has almost released every thought and emotion she was feeling then.
Surprisingly after a hard day’s work she felt more energetic than usual!
Reason Behind The Effectiveness of Rule Release 1% of Emotion
Let us say you are unemployed.
I will explain this in the form of a mathematical equation.
X = Y + 10, where ‘X’ is the unemployment state, and ‘Y’ is your present state of mind.
You do not have a direct influence over X.
But you can change Y into Y-1 or Y-2, which will in turn change X.
I mean, if you change your state of mind(Y), your unemployment status ‘X’ cannot remain the same.
Because Y has changed, X has to change too. So you have to become employed (soon).
Change Your Thoughts/Emotions, Change Your Life Situations!
Satya’s Steps to Execute RULE
What is my current feeling?
I feel terribly irritated.
Can I release the feeling of irritation?
Can I release just 1%?
I release 1% of the irritation.
Can I release some more?
I release 10%.of the irritation.
Like this she did. After some time, she was totally free from irritation.
Why we have to release 1%?
Then there won’t be a protest from the mind as you are releasing only one percent. Therefore, the mind keeps quiet and feels comfortable about the situation.
Though, this action releases the control of your thoughts and emotions over you.
