1.Marriage: Marriage is not a promise to be together throughout all eternity for no one can promise that. It is a promise to be present “now.” It is a vow that must be renewed in each moment if it is to have meaning. ~  Paul Ferrini 

 

2. Fear of Intimacy: People who are afraid of love are ambivalent about giving and receiving. When you are aloof, they feel safe and desire your presence. But when you come close, they get scared and ask you to back off or go away. This emotionally teasing behavior enables them to be in relationship while avoiding intimacy and commitment. If you are drawn into such a relationship, you must face the fact that you too may be afraid to receive love. Why else would you choose a partner who cannot give it?  ~ Paul Ferrini 

 

3. You played the part that I assigned to you to help me to look at feelings of being unfairly treated. Yes, it does look like I was unfairly treated. But I used you, and it was actually orchestrated by me. Can I see that it was a replay of previous events? Can I let it go and choose peace and love? Good! Now what else can we do for each other? It is about no longer identifying with anything that can suffer.

 

4. “If you are trusting in your own strength, you have every reason to be apprehensive, anxious and fearful.” ~ ACIM Lesson 47

Thoughts and Quotes for Today 5.20.13 May 20, 2013

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
