Today we welcome to the show Dr Bill Pettit
How our thinking creates all of our experiences
The Subtle nature of thought
You are either in your thoughts or you are in your life ….
This is such an important message for us all
Bill has a fascinating story
He spent over 20 years with the legendary Sydney Banks
As he says himself …..
It was the weekend of April Fools’ day in 1983 and in lieu of experiencing the pranks this day is known for, I was listening to a man called Sydney Banks talk about the spiritual nature of the human mind. Sitting in San Francisco that afternoon, I had hope awaken in me — hope that I could find a better level of mental health — and it lightened my heart and mind more than any practical joke could have.
As I spent more time in conversation with Syd, l started to see incremental changes in how I navigated my closest relationships, and responded to troublesome emotions. I started listening to others with more respect and less judgment. I reacted less to anger and negative feelings. I began to trust that leaving my thinking alone when upset, allowed my mind to quiet and more often brought me to the feeling, and solution that I desired.
It is a fascinating insight with Bill about being able to leave the mind alone
Let it settle
Do not always be trying to ‘fix’ your thinking
Trust your innate capacity for wisdom and insights
It is a strong message for us all to follow
You will find the experience of spending time in Bill’s company a very gratifying one
