[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] An Aha Moment
We hold on. Because Love does that. Embracing, rocking, reserving space.
Love holds, it treasures, it tucks away for safe keeping, it loyally
protects. Holding on is one of the many great powers of Love.
And it feels so good to hold on that sometimes we forget to look at what
we're holding on to. Danielle LaPorte
I'm reading Micheal Singer's work right now and having multiple Aha
moments! Just yesterday I was at the bank, the line was long and luckily I
had the book with me I started reading it while waiting to be attended to
and the Aha moments were so strong I did not even realize that I was
talking loud! I shouted out" OMG this is super stuff!" There were some eyes
on me! I chuckled But needless to say I wanted to share a snippet with you, maybe it can
speak to you or even someone you know
" If you are doing something to avoid pain then pain is running your life.
If you are afraid of being rejected by someone you approach and you
approach that person with the intention of winning their acceptance you are
skating on thin ice. All they have to do is look at you sideways or say the
wrong thing and you will feel the pain of rejection, you're going to be
dancing on the edge of rejection throughout the interaction. Your personality traits and behavior patterns are all about avoiding this
pain. You avoid it by keeping your weight at a certain level, wearing
certain clothes, talking a certain way, and choosing a certain hairstyle.
If.If you want to validate this, just see what happens when someone
criticizes your clothes; you feel pain. Every time you do something in the
name of avoiding pain, that something becomes a link that holds the
potential for the pain you are avoiding.
