1. Any story that we tell about ourselves is food for the ego. There IS NO Authentic “story”. 

 

2. “Self-hate is based on the premise that underneath is self-love. Self-hate comes from the idea that we have somehow fallen short of the Love that we are.” – Dalai Lama

I was floored by this one, how common-sensical! How obvious!–I hate myself when I go against the Love that I am. I go against the Love that I am when I buy into the negative false beliefs my ego holds. 
So how do I get back to the Love that I am? I get to know, and then undo, the negative beliefs I hold, then, one by one, bit by bit, step by step, I will uncover that Love.

 

3. Laughter, affection, kindness, joy, exercise, self-care, sharing are all ways to feed our hearts and to reverse heart dis-ease. ~ Jacob Glass

 

4. Just a re-minder…. Be Aware of the temptation to blame, judge, condemn, and attack. To compare and compete. To correct or try to fix our brother. That’s not our job. Forgive and ask for help to see the Christ in the “other”. Greet each “other” with a smile. Treat each “other” as you would want to be treated. Love one another. Let this be the essence of our Spiritual practice, for it is only our Self that we meet and it is our Self that we would find and know. Everything I GIVE, I GIVE to myself… IF I don’t like what I am GETTING, I can look at what I AM GIVING… 

 

5. “When you meet anyone, remember it is a holy (Wholly) 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

1. Forgiveness is when you don’t hang onto it anymore. You let it go. That way it can’t hold you back. This is no trivial spiritual practice. If you let it go, the past disappears, and without a past there is no future (which is a projection of the past). The window into eternity, which is now, opens and you are free. ~ Thanks Benny

2. “When you say or do anything to please, get, keep, influence, or control anyone or anything, fear is the cause and pain is the result. Manipulation is separation, and separation is painful. Another person can love you totally in that moment, and you’d have no way of realizing it. If you act from fear, there’s no way you can receive love, because you’re trapped in a thought about what you have to do for love. Every stressful thought separates you from people.” – Byron Katie

3. Do you really want to erase all your deluded beliefs, memories, stories, tendencies and identities one by one, or would you prefer to find the factory where they are produced, and blow the whole thing up? I say this because right now, I don’t have time for all this tiny pruning. You hold on to your little nail clipper, but I am giving you a great chainsaw to bring down this old tree of suffering. This chainsaw is self-inquiry. This is your good fortune. ~ Mooji

4. Making Friends with the Child Within: When you make friends with the child within, s/he stops trying to manipulate and control others to get love and acceptance and asks you for love directly. When the child within knows that s/he is loved, her hurt, fear and sadness fade away. Her sense of separation is bridged.

Something happens when the child knows that s/he is loved, but it can’t happen unless s/he knows that love is what s/he wants and s/he has the courage to ask for it. ~ Everyday Wisdom by Paul Ferrini (This is ALWAYS while knowing that giving and receiving is the SAME and everything I give, I give to mySelf)

1. Honestly finally, “our stories are out least interesting things about us” ~ Mooji

 

2. The Road to Nowhere: There is a road going by, but you don’t know where it is going. You don’t know whether to go right or left, or whether to stay where you are. You don’t know. Sooner or later, out of boredom no doubt, you will make a choice. You will go right or left. And you will get excited thinking that you have made the right decision until you come to difficult terrain, and then you will be convinced that you went the wrong way. 

This will happen whether you go right or left. It makes no difference. On the Road to Nowhere, it does not matter which way you go, because the road is circular and eventually returns to the same place. On the Road to Nowhere, the question is not “where are you going?” because you aren’t going anywhere in particular. 

The question is “how are you going?. 
Are you enjoying the journey?” 
Are you going happily or sadly? 
Are you going blessing or cursing the people you pass along the way?

On the Road to Nowhere the destination is not so important.
The only thing that is important is your state of consciousness. ~ Everyday Wisdom, Paul Ferrini

 

3. If you defend yourself you are attacked. By planning for the defense of a self that you are not, you are attacking the Self that you are. And if you feel defensive about anything you have identified with a self that you are not. ~ A Course In Miracles 

 

4. One day the Buddha was walking through a village. A very angry and rude young man came up and began insulting him. “You have no right teaching others,” he shouted. “You are as stupid as everyone else. You are nothing but a fake!”

The Buddha was not upset by these insults. Instead he asked the young man, “Tell me, if you buy a gift for someone, and that person does not take it, to whom does the gift belong?”
The young man was surprised to be asked such a strange question and answered, “It would belong to me, because I bought the gift.”

The Buddha smiled and said, “That is correct. And it is exactly the same with your anger. If you become angry with me and I do not get insulted, then the anger falls back on you. You are then the only one who becomes unhappy, not me. All you have done is hurt yourself.”
