“We don’t reach the light by endless analysis of the dark. We reach the light by choosing the light. Light means understanding. Through understanding we are healed.”
Today I am reading about forgiveness and changing our minds. CHANGE!!!
At any moment we have the power to change the direction of our lives. It sounds simple… almost like a bunch of bullshit. But it’s true. At any moment we have the power to alter our perception of our lives. If you are hurting and you can’t take the pain anymore something in you will either send messages throughout your body saying OK… basta… enough is enough we are done with this… this isn’t working its time to move on. Or you will stay in the pain until it kills you. And in the moment that questioning thought enters your body change has happened.
Freedom is an amazing place to stand in. Standing in your freedom to choose… to be who are meant to be… to do what you are meant to do. Freedom to change at any moment is liberating and refreshing. Gives me hope that things don’t have stay the same.
CHANGE IS GOOD~
When you are changing~
When you are becoming someone who takes your SELF seriously it is inevitable that you will and MUST drop people. They will not accept the new you. They are not where you’re at. They are so used to the old you that they can’t stand the new you.
The people who are about growth and evolution will support you in moving forward... the people who are threatened by that growth with try and step on you and this is when we must let them go. The worst part about it is that even those who love us—want us to stay the same. When we start changing they’re forced to look at themselves. And if they’re not ready for that kind of growth... then there is nothing we can do but keep moving.
The relationship section of this book is incredibly long. Marianne is covering so many areas. She is calling me to sit through the discomfort today and feel things. And I AM feeling things. The change I am feeling in me has more to do with how I see my relationships… encouraging me to face fear and move through it. I am exploring the things I thought people were doing to me that I was in fact doing to myself.
Today I am worrying less about what others have done to me.
Today I am working on my own healing.
“Actual change occurs because of a decision on our part: the decision to heal, the decision to change. It ultimately doesn’t matter so much why I become angry or defensive. What matters is that I decide I want to be healed, and I ask God to help me. Like an actor reading lines from a script, I can choose a new response to life, a new reading.”
Everyday is an opportunity to begin again. At any moment we can ask the universe for a miracle and trust that it will arrive.
“… with the correction of our perceptions, we are returned to who we really are. Our true, purely loving self can never be uncreated. All illusions will be undone. Although, experiences such as childhood trauma can lead us to deviate from our true nature, the truth itself is held in trust for us… until we choose to return.”
I affirm: Today I ask to be healed. Today I am returning to who I really am.
