1. When you meet anyone, remember it is a holy encounter. As you see him you will see yourself. As you treat him you will treat yourself. As you think of him you will think of yourself. Never forget this, for in him you will find yourself or lose yourself. ~ A Course In Miracles
2. I can see the ego’s face falling apart, like wet tissue paper over the fingers of the mind. Bits of bright light come streaming through the holes, in the form of books and interviews and posts and miracles, in overwhelming numbers that didn’t exist before. In their light, I can SEE. The end is speeding toward us, and we are its vehicle. ~Karmic Eraser
3. “Defining yourself through thought is limiting yourself. When you fully accept that you don’t know, you actually enter a state of peace and clarity that is closer to who you are truly than thought could ever be.” ~ Tolle
4. A Byron Katie student sharing on “not holding on to the stressful thoughts”:
I have to share this because it is so awesome. (I think so anyway) You guys are the only ones I can talk to about this stuff. Anyway, I am noticing more and more that not only do I not hold on to the stressful thoughts, I actually am able to laugh at them. I notice this more and more when I am talking to someone else and they are telling me this stressful story about their life. I want to seem compassionate, but at the same time I just cannot buy into that story. I was having lunch with a friend today and she was telling me about her dad and brother who she has a very hard time with for various reasons. It was so hard for me not to laugh when she was telling me that they should accept her for the way she is, but in the same sentence basically saying that they need to change. I can remember when I used to believe that thought. How stressful. I have shared The Work with her a few times, like Batgal Ariel did with her friend. My friend is apparently not ready, and that’s ok. I will just continue to be the demonstration of how it works and not judge her and think that she should be different that she is. Let me tell you, that is a HUGE change for me. I had absolutely NO desire to want to help her or try and change her. Before, I felt like I had to “rescue” them from their stressful thoughts…but I wasn’t rescuing myself. Hello? I find that so freeing that I could sit with her and just listen. Such freedom!
