Quotes once again!

You may tend to see people as competition, or as adversaries. If so, a change of heart might involve learning to see the innocence in them. Or you might see life as a contest but wish to stop keeping score so much of the time. In this case, having a change of heart might mean redefining what it means to be successful. Sometimes, a change of heart can come about by one’s own quiet reflection. Other times, a close friend or counsellor can help you see your own blind spots or assist you in identifying new ways to look at life.

Your love is located in your heart. It is form this place that we should not only speak but also listen and hear non-defensively what is said to us. It is when you are not in touch with our heart, but instead your ego, that what others say to you affects you negatively. The words you hear become entrenched in our emotional responses of insecurity, anger, resentment and depression.

Be not afraid of growing slowly, be afraid only of standing still.

We all have things we struggle with, aspects of our lives that seem to create ongoing stress. Perhaps its a relationship, a nagging fear or anxiety, or a habit of some kind that gets in your way. The question is, what’s in it for you to continue your inner strife? You may have all sorts of good reasons for your feelings, but the truth is, they are of no value to you.
