1. “Love is the ability and willingness to allow those that you care for to be what they choose for themselves without any insistence that they satisfy you.~ Wayne Dyer

2. “You either believe what you think or you question it. There’s no other choice. When I am perfectly clear, what is is what I want. Reality is always kinder than the story we tell about it.” ~ Byron Katie

3. Until you get comfortable with being alone, you’ll never know if you’re choosing someone out of love or loneliness. ~ Mandy Hale

4. A Healthy Relationship with Our Fear: We have an unhealthy relationship with our fear when we allow it to prevent us from taking risks that are essential to our growth or when we ignore our fear and insist on taking risks we are not ready to take.

We need to avoid these extremes. We have a healthy relationship with our fear when we acknowledge it when it comes up, without giving it permission to run our lives. We may take a step back when we feel overwhelmed, but then we move forward toward our goal.

We don’t stay stuck in one place, nor do we venture out completely unprepared for the conditions we might face. We take reasonable and appropriate risks. Little by little, we stretch our comfort zones. ~ Paul Ferrini

I live in my own world

1. Peace is found within oneself because of a choice made regardless of outside circumstances. Thanks Fred

 

2. There is a place in US that truly never stops shining. Beautiful people shine on the inside. Look for the beauty in everything you encounter today, remember this acceptance to one self is a path to true beauty on the inside. Be an example today of the beautiful person you truly ARE. We can go out into the world and Shine no matter what our circumstance are.

 

3. Your life IS your spiritual path: Don’t be quick to abandon it for promises of bigger and better experiences. You are getting exactly the experiences that you need to grow. Your growth and transformation intensify when you fully embrace the situations and relationships at hand. ~  Paul Ferrini

 

4. Impatience in all our Relationships: When either of US are impatient, we do our best to remember that we really are fearful and hence in a hurry. We are learning that our real home is Love, which is a reality where there is NO HURRYING. When we are in the reality of Love, we are not fearful and we are not anxious. For example, if someone is going to slow on the highway and we have an important appointment, we decide to tell ourselves that the driver in front of us is just giving us a lesson in patience. In doing this we arrive at our appointment FULL OF LOVE and PEACE rather than being anxious and pissed off.

1. Take a step of ultimate bravery.. dare to look within and see only grandeur! Thanks Pamela

 

2. “There is no reality except the one contained within us. That is why so many people live such an unreal life. They take the images outside of them for reality and never allow the world within to assert itself.” ― Hermann Hesse

 

3. You’re not helping anybody by being miserable. Regardless of your philosophical beliefs, the fact remains that you were born and you are going to die. During the time in between, you get to choose whether or not you want to enjoy the experience. Events don’t determine whether or not you’re going to be happy. They’re just events. You determine whether or not you’re going to be happy. You can be happy just to be alive. You can be happy having all these things happen to you, and then be happy to die. If you can live this way, your heart will be so open and your Spirit will be so free, that you will soar up to the heavens. ~ The Untethered Soul

 

4. Reality is safe and sure and kind. The world that we see does not exist. We are not a body and there is no death. We are eternal Spirit, perfect even as our creator/source is perfect and eternal. Love is all that can be given or received, and we are lacking nothing. We cannot be threatened in any way. There is nothing to fear.

“Can you imagine what it means to have no cares, no worries, no anxieties but merely to be perfectly calm and quiet all the time? Yet that is what time is for; to learn just that and nothing more.”

“What is time without a past and future? It has taken time to misguide you so completely, but it takes no time at all to be what you are.”

“Take this very instant, now, and think of it as all there is of time. Nothing can reach you here out of the past, and it is here that you are completely absolved and completely free and wholly without condemnation. From this holy instant wherein holiness was born again you will go forth in time without fear, and with no sense of change with time.” – ACIM

 

Love feels free

1. “What is IS the highest order.” ~ Byron Katie

2. “Don’t be afraid of the space between your dreams and reality. If you can dream it, you can make it so.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

3. “It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all – in which case, you fail by default.” ~ J.K. Rowling

4. You are the judge and the savior No one else can condemn you for your mistake or release you from your guilt. You must come to terms with what you have done. You must acknowledge your error and atone for it. The forgiveness of others is nice to have, but it means nothing if you cannot forgive yourself. ~ Paul Ferrini

1. “Peace doesn’t require two people; it requires only one. It has to be you. The problem begins and ends there.” –  Byron Katie

 

2.We cannot come unto our “God” until we learn to relate to and Love one another. Those apparent “other” people in our face are our spiritual practice. Practice – practice – practice! Stop judging, comparing, defending, competing, correcting, fearing and/or using them to get something you think you are lacking. Go! Practice some more.

 

3. “To meet everything and everyone through stillness instead of mental noise is the greatest gift you can offer to the universe. I call it stillness, but it is a jewel with many facets: that stillness is also joy, and it is love.” Eckhart Tolle

 

4. “I don’t fix my problems. I fix my thinking. Then the problems fix themselves.” ~ Louise Hay

 

5. “Your life, as it is, is tailor-made for your next step– awakening to your true nature as the supreme reality.” ~ Mooji

 

6. “Whatever we plant in our subconscious mind and nourish with repetition and emotion will one day become a reality.” ~ Earl Nightingale

I love you

Katie on: “How I Learned to Stop Arguing with Reality and Leave My Children’s Socks on the Floor”

Before I woke up to reality, I had a symbol for all my frustration: my children’s socks. Every morning they would be on the floor, and every morning I would think, “My children should pick up their socks.” It was my religion. You could say my world was accelerating out of control in my mind; there were socks everywhere. And I would be filled with rage and depression because I believed these socks didn’t belong on the floor even though, morning after morning, that’s where they were. I believed it was my children’s job to pick them up even though, morning after morning, they didn’t.

I use the image of children and socks, but you might find that for you, the same thoughts apply to the environment, politics or money. We think these things should be different than they are, and we suffer because we believe our thoughts. At 43, after 10 years of deep depression and despair, my real life began. ?

What I came to see was that my suffering wasn’t a result of not having control; it was a result of arguing with reality. I discovered that when I believed my thoughts, I suffered; when I didn’t believe them, I didn’t suffer and that this is true for every human being. Freedom is as simple as that. I found that suffering is optional. I found a joy within me that has never disappeared, not for a single moment. That joy is in everyone, always.

When you question your mind for the love of truth, your life always becomes happier and kinder. Inquiry helps the suffering mind move out of its arguments with reality. It helps us move into alignment with constant change. After all, the change is happening anyway, whether we like it or not. Everything changes. But when we’re attached to our thoughts about how that change should look, we feel uncomfortable when we realize we’re not in control. Through inquiry, we enter the area where we do have control: our thinking. We question our thoughts about the ways in which the world seems to have gone crazy, for example. And we come to see that the craziness was never in the world, but in us. ?

When we understand our thinking, we understand the world, and we come to love it. In that, there’s peace.

Who would I be without the thought that the world needs improving? Happy where I am right now: the woman sitting on a chair in the sunlight. Pretty simple. The apparent craziness of the world, like everything else, is a gift we can use to set our minds free. Any stressful thought you have about the planet, for example, or about life and death, shows you where you’re stuck, where your energy is being exhausted as a result of not fully meeting life as it is, without conditions. You can’t free yourself by finding a so-called “enlightened” state outside your own mind. When you question what you believe, you eventually come to see you’re the enlightenment you’ve been seeking.

Until you can love what is–everything, including the apparent violence and craziness–you’re separate from the world, and you’ll see it as dangerous and frightening. I invite everyone to put these fearful thoughts on paper, question them, and set themselves free. When the mind is not at war with itself, there’s no separation in it. I’m 65 years old and unlimited. I’m no longer interested in what my children do with their socks.
