Inner Journey:

ACCEPTING REALITY

“…self-contempt never inspires lasting change.”
— Jane R. Hirschmann and Carol H. Munter

I can suck myself down into a deep, black hole when I focus on what I think I SHOULD be… more loving, sexy, productive, whatever. Thinking I should be something else means I’m not good enough now. This is poverty thinking and a guaranteed way to be miserable.

I can let go of this suffering by accepting WHAT IS. I can say, “This is how I am right now and that’s okay.”

When I first tried this, I could say it but not believe it. Then I began to experience the freedom this perspective brings – just by changing my mind! Now I’m beginning to believe it. What a gift!

“When we stop opposing reality, action becomes simple, fluid, kind, and fearless.”
— Byron Katie

A Note from the Universe

It’s as if, when moving from point A to point B in your life — from sickness to health, poverty to wealth, whatever – at some point in the journey, arriving at point B becomes inevitable, a sure thing. However, at no point in your journey is this physically verifiable — until you reach point B.

The point being (yuck, yuck), you may have already crossed that line. But you’ll never know it, unless you see the journey through.

Tallyho, ho, ho –

Animals

“Animals are such agreeable friends — they ask no questions, they pass no criticisms.”

-George Eliot, 1857

The animals we are most familiar with are our pets. At some point in our lives, I’m sure we’ve all had at least one pet. I certainly have had quite a few, and I learned something from each and every one of them. Suki is the cat who lives with us right now. I can’t really call her “mine” because she is very much her own cat! There is an unconditional love that happens between pets and companions; it’s very comforting. If only we could all be such agreeable friends.

-Lissa Coffey

You’ve had your share of fun, and now it’s time to face the consequences. You probably knew what you were doing when you did it, but now that it’s time to pay the piper, you may have serious regrets. What’s more important: maintaining a close relationship, or perusing every opportunity for passion with reckless abandon? The decision is easy.
