A Different Definition of Praise
So long as you have YOU, you can face starting again. You may have to confront illusions you have about yourself, such as holding on to titles and certain salaries and privileges. Those, too, are illusions – big things that are really small. The truly BIG thing is You Carolyn Myss
I was in a state of in between cussing and walking away.
I wanted to tell them off, I wanted to curse, I was plain ole frustrated.. Have you ever felt that way? I feel it when things are not going the way I want them to go.
I've learnt that ,all of the lessons of Life are good; ]
Listen, at no point along, the journey is more wondrous than another.
There are no greater or better lessons to be learned in one place or the other.
You fret so much about making the “right” decisions all the time, as though there is a wrong turn, a detour that could be made along the road of your journey, to a spot where your ancestors will not be, where you cannot turn to your highest self.
They are everywhere; your highest self is IN YOU whatever turn you make.
There is always a lesson to be learned wherever you are.
What are you fussing about?
To be right?
To look good?
To be in control?
For whom exactly?
For what purpose?
Praise the ones who you are with.
Praise what you like and what you don’t like. You may say, well isn’t that giving the situation life? If I praise what I don’t like, aren’t I helping to create a space that produces more of it?
Praise is not about bringing things to realisation; it is not for the purpose of approving or not approving of any outer thing.
Praise is for the purpose of recognising and accepting spiritual virtues that are present in you no matter what appears to be happening outside of you.
If you are so worried about being right, being in control that you become so busy hiding from things, running from them and resisting them, then by your efforts to get away you are providing more fuel for the fire that you say you want to quell.
Praise each other.
Do it and see how much more you are a blessing to the world and how much the world will be a blessing to you
