Sutra is a Sanskrit Word, meaning, “The Key”, I been using this method for a long, works like charm, i do see a transformation happening in many ways.
I know i sexed up the Method by naming it “Happiness Sutra”. 😉
The whole method is about thinking once, before worrying.
Notes to the Method:
1- The Checklists are the thoughts points you need to consider when you feel you are worrying for something.
2- Case: Is an example situation best fitting into the Checklist, sure there can be many such situations.
3- Explanation: A brief about the Checklist.
Checklist 1: Is my worry caused by assuming way too much/having false assumptions of the situation?
Case: Ops, I am too worried for past 3 days, he has not called/texed me still, he always used to call me.
Has he found someone Else?
Has he left me?
Is he no more interested in me?
Explanation: Observe possibly this worry of yours is caused by assuming too much and drafting false facts in your Mind/thoughts, which negatively make you believe that, YES the worry Exist, In Effect, it Does NOT. (That’s the Power and Beauty of Thoughts, it can make us believe even, what Does NOT EXIST).
Checklist 2: Am i over Reacting to the Situation OR Is it how, would i react to the Situation, if I am happiest person on planet?
Case: I am feeling sad, because they take me for granted, they say, they do not need me, I feel so alone and unwanted.
Explanation: As i observed, a typical (Not so happy) person takes no more than 10% of Actions on situations but reacts to 90% of the situations.
You decide now, You want your life wasted on just Reacting to the Situations and on what others DO or SAY about you OR “you want to be Proactive and Live the Life You desired For?”
Checklist 3: Is my Worry, the Solution for this Situation?
Explanation: The more you worry, the deeper you will find yourself, stuck into it. Does it SOLVE the situation? Absolutely NOT.
It surely DISSOLVES all your energies, unwontedly. This is again a byproduct of Over-Reacting (Refer to Checklist 2 ).
Case: I locked up myself for past 2 days, trying to find the solution and blaming me for all that happened I am feeling more and more confused, alone, puzzled.
What an Energy Sucker Situation, we create for ourselves. Think again, will Reacting do any Good?
How to use:
I strongly recommend to each one of you, to make a small postcard sized slip and write over it, all the three Checklists (Only Write the Checklists). The Case and Explanations are just for your understanding. Always carry this card with you; you can call it, “Happiness Sutra Card”.
Next time when you have any worry, Just hold one, sit back, take a deep breath, just cut out of the Worry for 2 minutes, pick out the card, Read aloud the checklists.
Tick against each Checklist. (Tick or No Tick)
If you find, you have not a single Tick on any of the Checklists, your Worry is just FALSE and does not even exist and is a mere Reproduction of Over-Assuming and Over-Reacting.
So, now you know the problem (False Worry), you know the Solution (Why to have False Worry at all).
My Experience: Needless to say, IT WORKS and it’s too addicting.
Action Pack: Use this method, update me with your results.
REMEMBER, no method is a Secret or a Magic, its just that our thoughts are too busy in worrying that we do not get time to be feel Happy at all. 😉
