#35 May 2015 – Acceptance

unnamedAcceptance

What captivated me the most during the retreat in Borobudur was when Lama Marut led us into two meditations. His words impacted me and made me more aware of the way I consciously or subconsciously view others. It was an excellent eye opener really. His quote continues to reverberate in my consciousness everyday:

“Some people will like you; some people will never like you. And if you try hard to make them like you, the greater the distance they create.”

It is a strong reminder that when I can’t change it why worry?

And when I can change it why worry?

#34 April 2015 – Sacred Space

sacred space

Sacred Space

“[Sacred Space] is an absolute necessity for anybody today You must have a room, or a certain hour or so a day, where you don’t know what was in the newspapers that morning, you don’t know who your friends are, you don’t know what you owe anybody, you don’t know what anybody owes to you. This is a place where you can simply experience and bring forth what you are and what you might be. This is the place of creative incubation. At first you may find that nothing happens there. But if you have a sacred place and use it, something eventually will happen.” Joseph Campbell.

What and where is your sacred space?

Susan


A Final Thought…

“ We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us.
