It doesn't matter what did or did not happen then. It only matters what happens NOW. — © Cheri Huber
It doesn't matter what did or did not happen then. It only matters what happens NOW.
An essential part of seeing clearly is finding the willingness to look closely and to go beyond our own ideas.
Feeling bad is not a requirement; it’s something we agree to. Cut it loose!
When we make decisions, about eating or anything else, with an attitude of kindness and acceptance toward ourselves, with awareness of what is involved in our choices, the conflict between deprivation and indulgence ceases to exist.
The quality of your life is determined by the focus of your attention.
Getting where you want to be has everything to do with awareness, and nothing to do with willpower.
You have been taught that there is something wrong with you and that you are imperfect, but there isn't and you're not.
Be just the way you have always been, with this difference: do not believe any of it, and pay close attention to all of it.
A person who is without fear cannot be controlled.
If you had a person in your life treating you the way you treat yourself, you would have gotten rid of them a long time ago.
That love of the practice of ending suffering will probably be all of the awakening that you would ever desire.
When we come to that compassionate awareness that is not afraid of the fear, that can embrace the fear, we are able to heal the wounds of the child and the adult and begin to live the lives we've always wanted to live.
People respond better to kindness than cruelty. Why, it's even caught on in the workplace, that bastion of self-hatred and disrespect.
Self-judgment is how conditioned mind keeps control over your life.
That which you seek, is causing you to seek.
What we do about our feelings determines the quality of our relationship with ourselves.

It is not my experience that we are here to fix the world, that we are here to change anything at all. I think we are here so the world can change us. And if part of that change is that the suffering of the world moves us compassion, to awareness, to sympathy, to love, that is a very good thing.
When you're experiencing peace, it's coming from within you; you're 'doing' peace and this is true of anything else you might be looking for. Love, happiness, contentment, well-being come from within. Nothing external needs to change for you to have what you want.....If you want to be happier - be happier. If you want to be more relaxed - relax. If you want more friends - be friendly. Sounds simple. It is.
We have a choice. We can love our lives trying to conform to some nebulous standard, or we can live our lives seeing how everything works. When we step back and look at it that way, it is obvious that the attitude of fascination is the only intelligent one to bring to anything.

Going in the wrong direction but making really good time

Here is my wish for you and every other child, woman, and man on the face of the earth: Spend one week saying only kind, caring things to yourself. Say thank you at least ten times an hour, direct five toward yourself and five to the world at large. Compliment yourself (and others) each time an effort is made. Notice all the wonderful qualities and characteristics about yourself and those around you. One week. You will never go back. And your whole life will be a glorious meditation.
If you want to know what you were conditioned to believe as a child, look at how you treat yourself now.
The voice inside your head is not the voice of god. It just sounds like it thinks it is.
Every time we choose safety, we reinforce fear.
Do something you fear, NOT to conquer the fear, NOT to accomplish a task, but to familiarize yourself with the processes with which fear protects itself, to demystify it.
