“Our lives improve only when we take chances ~ and the first and most difficult risk we can take is to be honest with ourselves.” Walter Anderson
Acknowledge the Now, as it is, claim it and allow grace to course through you. Control is about perpetuating the past or fearing the future. There is no room for the present if you are living in the past or waiting on expected outcomes.
Be considerate of self when you are suffering. Ask What is Hurting? Bring the darkness to the light. Is there a sense of safety in your darkness? It is YOUR darkness that you have come to know after all. Is there guilt or shame attached to it? It is our work to feel the fear behind the anger, judgment or pain. We have disenfranchised ourselves – How do we connect again?
It is our responsibility to lessen the harshness towards ourselves.
It is up to us to remove the separateness.
Is it possible to see yourself not as separate? What is it in you that compels you to pursue a spiritual path?
It takes courage and dedication to pursue a relationship with Goddess, the Creative Force and others.
In order to fulfill my purpose on earth, I need to shift my attention away from controlling others, getting my way, to disciplining myself. – me
