Giving Love

When a relationship falls apart or when a partner cheats, we can be devastated by the loss and crippled by the pain. We have been stabbed in the heart. It is an old and familiar wound. Grief and sadness over a loss is natural, but our pain comes from our attachment, not from our love.

Having Compassion

In every moment life presents you with a choice – either move to compassion or close down from fear and anxiety. To take the opportunity and face your fears or remain imprisoned by them. The choice is yours. If for example, if you think you’re not worthy or inadequate, you won’t respond harmoniously to the situations that life presents. You won’t take risks. You’ll avoid healthy relationships or attach to other people in unhealthy ways.

Do you get upset easily? Do other people set you off? Do you get angry, explosively so, at your partner? Worse yet, are you unremittingly harsh on yourself? What about other drivers?

Judgment

Humans tend to segregate things into good and bad. We all make and hold judgments. We have issues with former lovers, business partners, co-workers, neighbors, former friends, parents, siblings, etc. We focus on the other people, but judgment is not about them at all.

Every Loving Thought

“Every loving thought is true. Everything else is an appeal for healing and help, regardless of the form it takes.” Helen Shucman Sometimes a thought catches you and causes you to change the way you see things. That happened to me with Helen’s quote. It took me back to something Gay Hendricks teaches, “The only thing any situation needs is more love.”

Parenting

When conducting a workshop, if there is one topic guaranteed to snap a room to attention, it is the issue of parenting. No one, it seems is comfortable with their ability to parent and everyone feels pretty vulnerable about it. It is a shame that we don’t teach parenting in schools because you’re certain to need it more than algebra or chemistry.
