Quotes of the day... 11/11/14

Instead of spinning your wheels 
asking "Why?" (which rarely helps), 
try asking some variation of "Now what?" 
You now have more energy to cope, 
problem-solve, and otherwise deal 
with whatever life throws at you. 
     ~adapted, Gina DeLapa

We hang on to pain. It certainly satisfies 
our unconscious need for the alleviation 
of guilt through punishment. 
We get to feel miserable and rotten. 
The question then arises, “But for how long?” 
     ~ David R. Hawkins

On a deeper level you are already complete. 
When you realize that, there is a playful, 
joyous energy behind what you do.

Quotes of the day... 11/10/14

The truly humble cannot be humbled. 
They are immune to humiliation. 
They have nothing to defend. 
There is no vulnerability and, therefore, 
the truly humble do not experience 
critical attacks by others. Instead, 
a truly humble person sees 
the critical verbalization by another person 
as merely a statement 
of the other person’s inner problems.
     ~ David R. Hawkins

Other people merely mirror back 
our own fears and insecurities
 we are projecting onto them.
     ~ David R. Hawkins

Once we have mastery over our feelings, 
our fear of life diminishes.
     ~ David R. Hawkins
