Hey Friends, I am excited to share some of my favorite contemplations from my favorite teachers.
Abraham Hicks: “If something you want is slow to come to you, it can only be for one reason: You are spending more time focused upon its absence than you are about its presence.”
Yung Pueblo: “You can not build a deep connection with someone who’s disconnected from themselves.”
From article: You Don’t Deserve Better – “So no, you don’t deserve better, and you don’t get a pony. Get a coach. A therapist. Find a support group. Read a book. Something! The harsh truth is that your relationships are not going to improve until you do something about it. Cancel the self-pity party and the I-Deserve-Betterpalooza. Shut down the excuse factory and put down the blame-thrower. It’s time to heal!”
Excerpt from book: The Art of Possibility: “I settled on a game called “I am a contribution”. Unlike success and failure, contribution has no other side. It’s not arrived at by comparison. All at once I found out that the fearful question, “Is it enough”, and the even more fearful question, “Am I loved for who I am, or what I have accomplished?” could both be replaced by the joyful question, “How will be a contribution today?” “
Rumi – “When I run after what I think I want, my days are a furnace of stress and anxiety; if I sit in my own place of patience, what I need flows to me, and without pain. From this I understand that what I want also wants me, is looking for me and attracting me. There is a great secret here for anyone who can grasp it.”
Poem by Rumi:
I said: What about my eyes?
God said: Keep them on the road.
I said: what about my passion?
God said: Keep it burning.
I said: what about my heart?
God said: Tell me what you hold inside it?
I said: pain and sorrow?
He said: Stay with it. The wound is the place where the Light enters you.
P.P.S. I am excited to launch my own retreat this year Aug-Nov timeframe either in Sun Valley, Idado, or Austin, TX, or at both locations. I’ve been to several retreats in the last few years and I know some of the best teachers who’ll facilitate the retreat and my intention is to make it affordable and accessible for people who are damn serious about the growth and learning. Details will follow soon. If you’ve any interest in attending my retreat and If you’ve followed my blog and podcast for sometime, you may know that how much I put effort and heart into this work.
