Outshining Painful Thoughts at Extract the Power 12!

 Etp_banner_Nov 2015

I had the recent opportunity to participate in a Balanced View Training in Bristol called Extract the Power 12. This is the eleventh time I have participated in this bi-annual Gathering and each time it is so powerful and empowering.

It is amazing to be in the context of the Four Mainstays where the entire focus is on gaining assurance in open intelligence and contributing strengths, gifts and talents for the benefit of all.

Everything comes up for me in this context because I have spent my life limiting myself with the belief that I am  not good enough, that I have nothing to contribute and that other people are so much better than me, and then trying to change this experience by attempting to make myself appear better than others.

This is such painful way to live and has led to relationship breakdowns and a life of dissatisfaction and misery.

What I love about the Balanced View Training is that I have had the opportunity to recognize all these belief systems, thoughts and emotions to be the beneficial lively energy of the open intelligence we all are and have immediate access to with short moments of complete relaxation.

When I completely relax my mind, no matter how jealous or depressed I am feeling everything pools into the pure light of open intelligence. There is nothing to grasp onto. The thoughts are just a mirage and indivisible from all experience is the great stability and wellness of open intelligence.

I love the Balanced View metaphor for the mind, how open intelligence is like a crystal ball, completely unaffected by its reflections. Capable of holding all reflections: ugliness, anger, hatred, joy, everything can appear and open intelligence remains crystal clear.

Through showing up to this Extract the Power Training and the continuous empowerment of the Four Mainstays lifestyle I now experience a capacity to show up beneficially no matter what I am feeling or thinking. I see I have a choice. I can withdraw into the misery of the descriptions in my mind or I can choose to recognize open intelligence and be unaffected. I can be warm, openhearted, available, and I can focus on solutions.

This is my choice, and I am so grateful to Candice O’Denver and the Balanced View Training for showing me I have this choice and then for empowering me to see that I shine and life and is completely wonderful when I make it.

Thank you to Candice O’Denver for the gift of outshining painful thoughts and empowering my capacity to contribute benefit…

Thank you to Candice O’Denver and Balanced View

I wake up every morning feeling incredibly grateful to Candice O’Denver and Balanced View that I know how to access the open intelligence we all are and share inseparably from each other and all beings.

I didn’t conventionally ‘succeed’ in school, I was considered a drop out. Balanced View has shown me a way to use my mind that gives me the knowledge, skills and capacity to contribute great benefit in any and all situations.

Through the simple practice of complete relaxation, short moments to relax my mind, I naturally feel confident and assured. I am able to understand others, to actually listen and to respond in a way that truly serves and is appreciated.

Whatever thought, emotion or sensation I experience, it doesn’t matter. I simply return again and again to this simple practice, and I use the Four Mainstays empowerment network. Thousands of people all over the world, with trainers, trainings and media available to empower intelligence for the benefit of all.

In all of my life I have never met such incredible people as the trainers, leaders and participants of Balanced View.

I have always wanted to see a solution for world peace, and this is what I see in people who choose to rely on the Four Mainstays. I see people who focus on benefit and naturally contribute with an open heart. I see people who express love and care in a way I had never experienced before. I am completely exalted and empowered to shine with my strengths, gifts and talents. This is truly the best life and instead of fearing and hating human beings I now see people are innately of benefit, born to contribute brilliance and love to each other and our precious world.

I am so grateful to Candice for giving everything so that all human beings can come to know this for themselves.

Thank you for reading 🙂
