As we are entering the holidays… here’s an encouragement to choose in each moment how safe you are ready to feel:

Without trust there is no belonging – and there is little enough of either in the world.

To a child, ”trust” is the belief that interactions, discoveries and the very presence of You… whomever… whatever… will never hurt.

‘Until one is committed,

there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, 
always ineffectiveness, concerning all acts of initiative (and creation).

In Eastern traditions, surrender refers to the goal of removing the ego from your behavior.  

In physical terms, surrender mean “give up or die” – to wave the white flag. 

To yield means to include another’s reality and intentions even when different from your own, thereby merging their strength with yours – and increasing clarity as well.  

Yielding also eliminates the need for win/lose and right/wrong.

 As babies, we feel everything but don’t know for sure what it all means.  We create the experience of being right or wrong to decrease the feeling of overwhelm and to try to fit in.

As grownups, in any moment in which you are free from “supposed to be”, anything can become a discovery!  

In this world, Learning and Healing are often part of the same process – especially when the fear of being wrong does not dominate your consciousness.

“To be vulerable actually means to be present and available for connection.  
When we connect –
when we choose to belong – we expand.”   -LBG

When celebrating who we’ve been and who we are, we can enrich our experience of past and present by remembering the challenges that had to be met from the viewpoints of those who did back then.

When dreaming of who we can be, we will enhance our creativity in the future by recognizing others who now face the same challenges as in our history – but for whom new and different solutions are needed.

There is no more frequently
undertaken task
with less proportional harvest
than working toward change
through the mind.

What’s the Difference?

All of us find some things hard if not impossible either to forgive or to accept. 

Both of these are actual choices which we do or don’t make – behaviors we do or don’t manifest. 

There is a sharp distinction between them.

Allies or Adversaries?

It’s not really an either/or… 

Survival plus our personal beliefs continue to present to us the universe as a dualistic choice when it reaches our conscious awareness.

The mind sees in terms of opposites:  i.e., black ~ white, good ~ bad, yes ~ no, yin ~ yang, right ~ left, friend ~ foe.

The brain sees “lukewarm”, “grey”, “maybe”; it also sees inclusive patterns and especially new choices.
