Quotes of the day 10/21/11

You've trained yourself to face reality. 
You've trained yourself to tell the truth. 
You've trained yourself to tell it like it is. 

So in the beginning, fantasizing a new reality 
feels a little inappropriate, 
because it's like you're fooling yourself. 
Sometimes people will say, 
"Well, isn't this just denial?" 
And we say, "We hope so!" 

We hope that you are denying 
the absence that you do not want. 
And we hope that you are embracing 
the presence of what you do. 
But somehow the idea of denial 
has become a dirty word to you; 
like it is virtuous to face the reality 
of the horror of your own lives. 

And we would be ignoring anything 
that did not please us. 
We would get our eyes on what feels good.

Having an optimistic attitude 
and focusing on success, 

one attracts these, 
while having a cynical,
depressed attitude 
attracts negative experiences.
