Check Yourself

To end the misery that has afflicted the human condition for thousands of years, you have to start with yourself and take responsibility for your inner state at any given moment. That means now. –Eckhart Tolle 


When you find yourself saying more than more,that it is someone else's fault, or blaming something  or someone else for where you are in life or making external things the reason for you doing or not being able to do something. It is time to check yourself!


When it's never your fault - check yourself!


When you keep telling others that things are just not going to change - check yourself!


When you start saying that the The Universe and Your maker, however you call that person, just does not want you to use your gifts to live a joyous life - check yourself!


When you have done absolutely no work and say that "prayers will work" - check yourself!


When you have no faith in your vision, no faith in yourself - yourself!


People, we have a responsibility. An ability to respond to what is around us!


Constantly coming up with a different reason or excuse when things are not changing - that is living in denial

There is a difference between patience and denial

Patience is doing the work, having the faith and waiting for a result to manifest.

doing the work +having the faith

its goes together


Denial can be doing the same thing over and over and expecting something to change or ignoring doing the work praying that by some magic alone things will change

Check Yourself!

Echart Tolle says your choices can accept it, change it or leave.

If you are doing none of those then chances are you may be blaming, making excuses, living in denial  or doubt. - Check Yourself!
