we so stubbornly cling to
are in fact
decisions we made (long long ago)
about what should be true". Brad Blanton from Radical Honesty
we took a "picture" of "Jack" doing something once
a million years ago
and that's what we assume he should be doing forever...
that's who he is for us...
that's who we are for us
because we did something one time
and took a picture of it
forever to be shining in our mind.....
what an infantile
we truly don't know anyone
the past is gone!!!
"roles and rules are just thoughts
which when grasped as principles,
are hard for people to get over, get beyond,
or let change...." bb
when we call them principles
somehow we think they are different--
more true, solid...
yada yada yada...
like Katie says,
would you repeat it?
live by it?
be defined by it?
encourage the mind to see you that way?
is there one joyful reason to keep that thought?
"People choke the life out of themselves by
tying themselves to a chosen "self-image"--
any self image whatsoever." bb
today we remember
"we see only the past." (L7 acim)
and now are we radically honest!
