!. I am too Blessed to be stressed!!!

 

2. Peace is a natural heritage of Spirit. Everyone is free to refuse to accept this inheritance, but he is not free to establish what his inheritance is. ~ A Course in Miracles

 

3. Every negative thought that you believe is a vote that opposes world peace. Have you voted today? ~ Byron Katie

 

4. Releasing the special relationship is highly recommended. That is any relationship that supports the idea that you are special and separate (an ego). But releasing it is not about saying “goodbye.” It is about allowing Divine Love to transform the relationship. It is about changing the purpose of the relationship. Now it is a relationship that has holiness, or inclusive wholeness, as its purpose.

 

5. “They tell me that you are looking for the perfect partner – someone who is not crazy.  No luck so far? Well, what did you expect to find here on the funny farm? And tell me – what is the state of your own mental health? Ha, ha, ho, ho, hee, hee. It’s for healing! Your relationship is for healing. You came together in this place because you both need healing.”  Thanks Benny

Byron Katie on “Becoming Aware of Your Stories”

Filed under: Love — C. Faith Holland @ 12:42 pm

Byron Katie on: “Becoming Aware of Your Stories”

“I often use the word story to talk about thoughts, or sequences of thoughts, that we convince ourselves are real. A story may be about the past, the present, or the future; it may be about what things should be, what they could be, or why they are. Stories appear in our minds hundreds of times a day — when someone gets up without a word and walks out of the room, when someone doesn’t smile or doesn’t return a phone call, or when a stranger does smile; before you open an important letter, or after you feel an unfamiliar sensation in your chest; when your boss invites you to come to his office, or when your partner talks to you in a certain tone of voice. Stories are the untested, uninvestigated theories that tell us what all these things mean. We don’t even realize that they’re just theories.

“Once, as I walked into the ladies’ room at a restaurant near my home, a woman came out of the single stall. We smiled at each other, and, as I closed the door, she began to sing and wash her hands. ‘What a lovely voice!’ I thought. Then, as I heard her leave, I noticed that the toilet seat was dripping wet. ‘How could anyone be so rude?’ I thought. ‘And how did she manage to pee all over the seat? Was she standing on it?’ Then it came to me that she was a man — a transvestite, singing falsetto in the women’s restroom. It crossed my mind to go after her (him) and let him know what a mess he’d made. As I cleaned the toilet seat, I thought about everything I’d say to him. Then I flushed the toilet. The water shot up out of the bowl and flooded the seat. And I just stood there laughing.

“In this case, the natural course of events was kind enough to expose my story before it went any further. Usually it doesn’t; before I found inquiry, I had no way to stop this kind of thinking. Small stories bred bigger ones; bigger stories bred major theories about life, how terrible it was, and how the world was a dangerous place. I ended up feeling too frightened and depressed to leave my bedroom.

“When you’re operating on uninvestigated theories of what’s going on and you aren’t even aware of it, you’re in what I call ‘the dream.’ Often the dream becomes troubling; sometimes it even turns into a nightmare. At times like these, you may want to test the truth of your theories by doing The Work on them. The Work always leaves you with less of your uncomfortable story. Who would you be without it? How much of your world is made up of unexamined stories? You never know until you inquire.”

Thoughts and Quotes for Today 3.22.13 March 22, 2013

1. Ultimately forgiveness doesn’t ask nor expect the world to change; yet, forgiveness simply sets it free.

 

2. Stay in Your Own Life. Don’t make decisions for other people. That will just take the focus away from your life. Let others find their own way. Support them. Encourage them. Cheer them on. But don’t think you know what’s good for them. You don’t know. When you take inappropriate responsibility for others, you overextend and weaken yourself.

Don’t do that. Let others live their lives. Stay in your own life and make your own decisions. Put your attention where it belongs. Listen to your guidance, honor it, act on it, and be committed to it. That is a full time job. ~ Everyday Wisdom by Paul Ferrini

 

3. When Life is Sweet, say Thank You and Celebrate…. When Life is bitter, say Thank You and Appreciate the opportunity to move beyond taste… 

 

4. Ego is that part of the split mind that is always looking for external validation and support. Spirit is that part of the mind that rests in peace and certainty. It does not need or seek external validation or support. And it is from that place of peace and certainty that unconditional love inclusively extends to all.

We can only have, what we are willing to give to others. We make room in our heart, for more each time we give away what we want.

Conditional love says, “you do and say what I want you to do and say and I will love you. And you better love me back at least as much as I love you. Otherwise, the deal is off.” Unconditional love is extended without the need to get anything in return.

 

5. You’re doing fine. You’re doing better than you know. Whatever you think should be otherwise, should not. You re in the stream of perfection. It could not be otherwise. And everything you truly desire, must rush towards you.

2. The Source:

You keep looking for love from other people, not realizing that Love comes only from your own consciousness. It has nothing to do with anyone else.

Love comes from your willingness to think Loving thoughts, experience Loving feelings, and act in trusting, Love-inspired ways…

The source of Love is within your own heart. Don’t look to others to provide the love you need.

Don’t blame others for withholding their love from you. You don’t need their love. You need your Love.
