Stressless Sunday

 

January Flaminos

 

The truth is there is no actual stress or anxiety in the world;

it's your thoughts that create these false beliefs. You

can't package stress, touch it, or see it. There are

only people engaged in stressful thinking.

--- Wayne Dyer

 

 

Memorable

Wayne W. Dyer, an internationally renowned speaker, and author was a very memorable and wise man. I miss flipping through the channels and seeing him live on Public Television. He was one of those guys that no matter when he spoke, I listened. My own experience has been that whenever I was having a stressful day, he had the power to convey positive thoughts across the airwaves, and in an instant, I was stress-free. 

 

Critical Moments

Everyone has emotionally critical moments of life that tend to last forever and the primary focus seems to be on the problem and not the solution. If we are to make sense of information that is new, shocking, out-of-the-ordinary, or different, listening before speaking or interrupting the speaker makes practical reasoning and clearer thinking. 

 

Freedom of listening

Sometimes, all it takes is to take a step back. Separation from the anxiety can be healthy. The power of reason will teach anyone how to get through the challenges and half-truths caused by anxiety. Freedom of speech often gets one into trouble. In my humble opinion, practicing the art of listening is not only common courtesy, it is an exercise in the freedom of listening, that separates the winners from the losers.

I love the photo - was fortunate enough to visit the island of Bonaire, where we observed thousands of flamingos in the salt flats.  Fond memory.

Thanks for another very thoughtful post;  listening usually provides far more insight and answers than talking.

Nice photo and article. Do you know why Flamingos lift one leg? Because if they lifted both legs they would fall down!

Susan Haughton - Until now, I never heard of the Island of Bonaire! I went to their website and was very impressed, especially with the coral restoration project! This must have been a vacation of a lifetime and one you'll never forget!

Gaining insights is something most people don't know how to acquire because I don't even know if there are classes that teach this to students. There are plenty of opportunities to learn public speaking but listening is equally important to gain insights. Thank you for the continuous wisdom that you spread here on ActiveRain!

Kathy Streib - I can really appreciate when people listen to me and I consider it to be rude when I can't finish a sentence. In class, it's easy for me to lose my train of thought when an instructor is speaking and someone raises their hand to take us off topic. The art of listening is so crucial to effective communication. 

Thank you for your pearls of wisdom! May you have a wonderful day!

Endre Barath, Jr. - It is sad indeed when people don't stop to listen. You have to wonder if whether or not dogs and cats sleep so much just because it's the only way to stop the human chatter?

Sometimes I think it's a race between words that gets us into so much trouble and the reason why there's so much confusion!

Jeff Dowler - the power of anxiety can destroy people's friendship, cause failure, and burn bridges. Good listening is the remedy. There has to be an equal balance for excellent communication. 

As always, I enjoy hearing what you have to say. Your insights are always powerful in a very good way!

Rebecca Gaujot, the Go To Realtor® - the longer I get to know you here on ActiveRain the more impressed I get. Your husband sounds like your rock. You created a good partnership and I'm sure you've taught him skills he needed to learn too. Here on ActiveRain, I consider you to be one my favorite rocks to lean on and learn.

Patricia stress can't be packaged, touched, or seen, but boy the stressful thinking can sure create some very unpleasant painful feelings.

George Souto - Stressful thinking is like a loose thread, it continues to unravel, tangle, get caught, and make a big mess doesn't it? Kathy Streib mentioned responsibility and we sure do need to be an advocate for listening and mindful of the fact that others have a voice, an opinion and even if we don't agree, respectfully we listen. 

Thanks, George.

Hi Patricia; I liked Wayne too! Never heard him speak in person, but used to have some tapes by him. And thanks for the reminder to step back from stress!

Kasey & John Boles and the team at Jon Gosche Real Estate, LLC - I have had many days like you described. I find that writing down my feelings helps, even if nobody else reads them. The most effective ones were the letters I wrote, pouring out my heart and soul, drenching lined paper in my tears, then burning it. 

I wish you peace of mind and good health.

When Charlie Rose was recently interviewed he said he pretty much lived a stress free life. That is ideal.
