Tolerance. Acceptance. Celebration. 3° of loving awareness that take us from slightly seething resentment… To an inner spaciousness that’s very kind. In other words… “agreeing to disagree” can either be total ego bullsh*t because we want to carry on with things, or it can be truly inclusive.
for pure encouragement
Spiritual bypassing is when you put a spiritual spin on a “negative” experience to avoid uncomfortable feelings…
What’s still sitting in the basement of your psyche waiting to be freed up and healed? Evolution is about integrating all parts of ourselves. No fragmented self left behind.
I’m not suggesting that we never talk about our past again (though that’s not an entirely bad idea). But what if we: Only speak about our pain with the intention to heal it.
What helped me tap happiness even in the midst of body aches and mental fog? I suspended judgment for my fatigue. I didn’t tell myself to push through. I didn’t critique the ways I got to an empty tank. I looked at exhaustion after challenges and hard work as… natural. (Duh.)
Consistency in relationships is powerful. Showing up for our humans is with steady love—it’s everything, really.
But what about our relationship with the DIVINE, our non-human family?
Rage is part of the human experience. And like all of our light and shadows aspects, it deserves to be honoured. And If we look at it with compassion, it won’t blind us.
It’s a huge stretch when we’re frustrated with other people’s choices… but the basic commonality we all have is CHOICE.
There are times to go to the mat for what you believe in. In my experience, MOST of the time, disengaging from duking it out is a very very good idea.
There’s so much that we want good n’ GONE. But here’s the thing: nothing is leaving your life or your thought patterns until you give it the light of your consciousness—your love.
“Inner Child” is a very useful term for our healing. But it’s so often misunderstood.
There are times in our lives when we bust out of habits and we do something new. Sometimes it’s the ego pushing us to prove ourselves.
Patience is not a form of endurance. Patience is a form of life force. It’s a daily practice of accessing Divine Power.
Your family members are going to be who they are most of the time. There’s so much sanity to just letting yourself flow with someone else’s predictability—their norm, their nature. Accept it. Forgive it. Just tolerate it; or peace out if you don’t want it in your life. But don’t waste too much time wishing you could change it. Bless it.
I wonder what my days would be like if I approached my happiness with more urgency and insistence (like I do deadlines and should-do’s.) Like: I’ve GOT to meet my dancing quota! Come hell or high water, I WILL get a facial and lay in the sun! Wild horses couldn’t keep me from lunch with my girlfriends!
