How could I possibly be offended?

If I refuse to take offense. I must admit that I have little sympathy for the perpetually aggrieved. I have learned, in the most agonizing way that being angry, resentful, filled with hate and plagued with a vindictive heart, is tantamount to drinking poison and hoping the person I’m offended by dies. You see, fromContinue reading “How could I possibly be offended?”

Thank you, but I want this

Alas, here I am again, in anguish, insisting that I have things the way I would prefer. I even have the audacity to say this encounter has been blessed, that God approves of me choosing to seek divine Love from unreliable sources.

You are exactly what you are, and cannot ever be any better or worse than that, in the eyes of God. Attend to what is really within you, then, andContinue reading “What I aspire to…”

Great, so now what?

I have acknowledged my error in perception, forgiven the “perpetrator”, asked forgiveness and expressed an interest in making up for the infraction. My question is now what? Well for starters, I can return to what is. That which is available right now always has been and always will be. I have to admit though itContinue reading “Great, so now what?”

That is why

“That is why, after the initial euphoria has passed, there is so much unhappiness, so much pain in intimate relationships. They do not cause pain and unhappiness, they bring out the pain and unhappiness that is already in you.”  Eckhart Tolle The Power of Now From where do pain and unhappiness originate? Does it matter?
