So you have trouble staying centered. In touchy situations you loose your calm. You get scared, feel anxious and become defensive. You sometimes do and say things you later regret.

Your Private Hell

You know the place I am talking about. It is where you keep your sins. It is where you hold the self condemnation for your failures, your mistakes, your errors of judgment. It’s where you keep the pain from the people you’ve hurt and the lies you’ve told. It’s a dark, smelly, unpleasant place.

Some people have never really opened their hearts, and they honestly do not know what it feels like.

Who is Running Your Life?

This may surprise you, but you don’t run your life. You might feel in control because you make the decisions, but what is it that guides and controls your decision making process? Where do all those different voices and influences come from? Are they all yours? And in the larger view, who or what decides what’s going to happen in a life in the first place?
