1. That which is seen is the reflection of one’s own consciousness. — Nisargadatta Maharaj
2. “The softest sound is the sound of silence. It’s the soul’s sound. If you believe in the noises of the world rather than in your soul’s silences, you’ll be lost.” ~ Neale Donald Walsch
3. “Acceptance, not Agreement : When your love for your partner is based on acceptance, not on agreement, you have a better chance of creating real intimacy. Contrary to what many believe, a good relationship does not require that you share everything with your partner.
Rather, it requires that you establish a mutual trust with your partner that allows both of you to be Authentic and True to yourselves. To be sure, intimacy comes from the intensity and consistency of your embrace. But it also comes from your willingness to let go and support each other when there are things that you cannot share.” ~ Everyday Wisdom by Paul Ferrini
4. The most brutally honest, loving and freeing sentiment:
“I love you. I respect you. I love being with you, spending time with you. But I do not need you. I do not need you for my contentment. You are no longer responsible for my happiness. Nor have you ever been to blame, or will ever be to blame, for my unhappiness. I release you from the intolerable burden of having to live up to my expectations, of having to change to fit my unending needs, of having to be the one to complete me. I am already complete. I love you. I respect you. As you are.” ~ Jeff Foster
