For The Weekend, xo
This week has been hectic. Between applying for a new position with a promising company, studying, comforting and caring for my 6 month old, and remaining balanced with my weekly objectives, I don't know where or how I managed to stop and catch a breath. I've tried my best to not allow stress to get the best of me, and have succeeded to the best of my ability. Things like the reading, daily affirmations and staying focused on daily goals assist me in doing so. This week during one of my reading sessions I discovered a couple of quotes that I would love to share with you all.
- "Give, and it will be given to you. . .for by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return."
- Every action giving creates an opposite action of receiving and what you received is always equal to what you've given. Whatever you give out in life must return to you. It is the physics and the mathematics of the Universe. Life doesn't just "happen" to you; you receive everything in your life based on what you've given.
Intensity Free of All Attachment
March 14th, 2015
In the state of passion without a cause, there is intensity free of all attachment; but when passion has a cause, there is attachment, and attachment is the beginning of sorrow. Most of us are attached; we cling to a person, to a country, to a belief, to an idea, and when the object of our attachment is taken away or otherwise loses its significance, we find ourselves empty; insufficient, This emptiness we try to fill clinging to something else, which again becomes the object of our passion.
Relationship Is A Mirror
March 15th, 2015
Surely, only in relationship the process of what I am unfolds, does it not? Relationship is a mirror in which I see myself as I am; but as most of us do not like what we are, we begin to discipline, either positively or negatively, what we perceive in the mirror of relationship. That is, I discover something in relationship, in the action of relationship, and I do not like it. So, I begin to modify what I do not like, what I perceive as being unpleasant. I want to change it -- which means I already have a pattern of what I should be. The moment there is a pattern of what I should be, there is no comprehension of what I am. The moment I have a picture of what I want to be, or what I should be, or what I ought not to be-- a standard according to which I want to change myself-- then, surely, there is no comprehension of what I am at the moment of relationship.
I think it is really important to understand this. for I think this is where most of us go astray. We do not want to know what we actually are at a given moment in relationship. If we are concerned merely with self-improvement, there is no comprehension of ourselves of ourselves, of what is.
