Be the person…

Be the person who breaks the cycle.
If you were judged, choose understanding. If you were rejected, choose acceptance. If you were shamed, choose compassion. Be the person you needed when you were hurting, not the person who hurt you. Vow to be better than what broke you – to heal instead of becoming bitter so you can act from your heart, not your pain. ~StrongMind

It is always a good idea to improve yourself. Breaking old patterns of abuse and uncaring shows a real desire for healthy living.

Fighting back against hate means finding more love and replacing hateful things with loving things.

The easier you can forgive the sooner you can be free of the painful past.

That doesn’t mean that you will forget the things that were done, but it does mean that you choose to take a different path. One of a higher vibration and mindful effort.

Choose LOVE instead of other options and change the old patterns of hate and unacceptance to those of understanding and unconditional acceptance.

Enough…

I am enough.

I am full of sparkle
and compassion.

I genuinely want to make
the world a better place.

I love hard.

I practice kindness.

I am not afraid of the truth.

I am loyal, adventurous, supportive and surprising.
I make mistakes, but I own them and learn from them.

Sometimes I make a lot of mistakes...

But I am enough.

~Molly Mohar

Do whatever you have to do to feel like you are enough.

Not PERFECT, just enough.

You’re healthy, and happy.

You’re sexy, and smart.

You’re every thing you need to be –

because you are uniquely YOU,

And that is enough.

Lessons…

Lessons…

 

Anything that annoys you

is teaching you patience.  Anyone who

abandons you is teaching you how to stand

up on your own two feet.  Anything that angers

you is teaching you forgiveness and compassion.

Anything that has power over you is teaching you

how to take your power back.  Anything you hate

is teaching you unconditional love.  Anything 

you fear is teaching you courage to overcome

your fear.  Anything you can’t control

is teaching you how to let go.

It’s easy to judge…

It’s easy to judge.

It’s more difficult to understand.

Understanding requires compassion,

patience, and a willingness to believe that

good hearts sometimes choose poor methods,

Through judging, we separate.

Through understanding, we grow.

Do your best to try to understand others

while holding your own positive space.

 

Realize that others are doing their best,

the same way you are doing your best.

 

You may not agree with them,

or the way they are doing things,

but it is not for you to judge them.

 

It is up to you to live your own life,

allowing others to live their life at the same time.

 

The more accepting you become,

the less contrast you will encounter.

 

If you can’t accept someone in the place they are at,

just walk away and find a different place where you are comfortable.

 

The more you practice acceptance

the easier it will become

to accept others wherever they are,

knowing that what they are attracting

is their business.

 

It’s not about judging others,

it’s about taking the time and patience

to accept, understand and

acknowledge each other.

 

We are all in this

LIFE together.

A celebration….

A celebration….

I want my life to be
a celebration of tenderness,
softness, kindness,
all things slow and true,
of compassion, deep breaths,
heart-felt ‘wow’ sighs and laughter loads,
of you, of me and our journey
of finding peace.
–S.C Lourie

Show me…

Show me…

 

Before you speak to me about

your religion, first show it

to me in how you treat other

people;  before you tell me

how much you love your

God, show me in how much

you love all His children; before

you preach to me of your

passion for your faith, teach

me about if through your

compassion for your neighbors.

In the end, I’m not as interested 

in what you have to tell or

sell as I am in how you choose

to live and give.

Break the chain…

Break the chain…

 

Hurt people hurt people.

That’s how pain patterns

get passed on, generation

after generation.  Break the chain

today.  Meet anger with

sympathy, contempt with

compassion, cruelty with

kindness.  Greet grimaces

with smiles.  Forgive and

forget about finding fault.

Love is the weapon of the 

future.

We are all shaped by our past experiences.

Our childhood has such an impact on us because those who were more powerful had control over us.

They enforced their thoughts and rules upon us whether they were fair to us or not.

  • They sometimes got angry and we were their target.
  • They sometimes got mean and we were their target.
  • They sometimes got cruel and we were their target.

 

In other words, they weren’t perfect at all.

They passed on the things that their parents and authority figures taught them.

They felt that they were in control and that they were responsible for you and your actions.

So they did the same things that others had done to them.  Perhaps they even added a little more enforcement to make sure that you would remember the “lesson”.

 

It takes looking at the past with new eyes of understanding to see what they may have intended for us.

To see that they were faulted and frail, human and hurt, themselves.

So they did the best they could at the time, and the fact that we ended up with less than a completely loving, enlightened parent was just a result of their past.

And that doesn’t justify the way we were treated, it doesn’t undo the hurt we felt.

It doesn’t justify unfair behavior at all.

 

But it does give us new choices as we learn to understand the position they were in at the time.

That we have the option of letting the past go and living a better feeling life

                 ~ right now ~

 

Of thinking about what we can do to treat others better in our life.

Of thinking about how we can treat others better every day.

Of thinking about why we want to treat others better in our life.

 

Breaking the chain of the past pain patterns.

 

Replacing the old way of thinking and doing

with new ways of expressing Sympathy and Compassion,

Kindness and Love.

 

Letting LOVE be the weapon of the future.

Replacing old patterns with new ones.

Ones that serve you and allow you to forget the past and everything bad that has happened to you

and live with peace, harmony and freedom today.

It does take patience

to be understanding

rather than judging something

at first thought or first sight.

Often it pays off to hold that judgement

for further consideration,

because things aren’t always as they appear.

Suffering…

 

 


Is suffering really necessary?

Yes and no.

If you had not suffered as you

have, there would be no depth

to you as a human being, no

humility, no compassion.

Suffering cracks open the shell

of ego.  And then comes a point

when it has served it’s purpose.

Suffering is necessary until you

realise it is unnecessary.

~Eckhart Tole
