The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it.

That made me think of unconditional love... and I found this

The only way love can last a lifetime is if it's unconditional.

The truth is this: love is not determined by the one being loved but rather by the one choosing to love.

Oh gosh Kali, that quote really hit me today and I realise that I still see all the things I have not done, or done poorly as being so much larger than any little kind or loving things I may have said or done.

I have copied out your quote and I am going to focus on looking for these things in each day, rather than in the "not so good" I have done or been feeling.

Thank you.


Over the years, I have come to realize that the greatest trap in our life is not success, popularity, or power, but self-rejection. Success, popularity, and power can indeed present a great temptation, but their seductive quality often comes from the way they are part of the much larger temptation to self-rejection. When we have come to believe in the voices that call us worthless and unlovable, then success, popularity, and power are easily perceived as attractive solutions. The real trap, however, is self-rejection. As soon as someone accuses me or criticizes me, as soon as I am rejected, left alone, or abandoned, I find myself thinking, "Well, that proves once again that I am a nobody." ... [My dark side says,] I am no good... I deserve to be pushed aside, forgotten, rejected, and abandoned. Self-rejection is the greatest enemy of the spiritual life because it contradicts the sacred voice that calls us the "Beloved." Being the Beloved constitutes the core truth of our existence.

- Henri J.M. Nouwen

Here's to getting "real"

"Did I offer peace today? Did I bring a smile to someone's face? Did I say words of healing? Did I let go of my anger and resentment? Did I forgive? Did I love? These are the real questions. I must trust that the little bit of love that I sow now will bear many fruits, here in this world and the life to come."

Wispy - it's interesting to contemplate selecting our paths.
I've been blessed to chose where I live and work, my friends and interactions, my attitude, the list goes on and on.
I was not able to chose where I was born, my race, ethnicity or family, genetic make up or how others act and react in my small sphere.

You must have chaos within you to give birth to a dancing star.

- Friedrich Nietzsche

Just have to take this opportunity to bring forth a dearly loved quote once again... I am so grateful to so many people who have walked and understand the path I seem to be on.

Some people believe at some point we actually choose our own path through life - if this is so why on earth did I choose this one? And yet strangely enough, the further I go along it the less would I want to change it. In fact I would go so far as to say. I am grateful now for the path I am on and would not want to change it if I could.

Great quotes for starting an interesting discussion.

Perhaps the meaning is within "the eye of the beholder" so to speak.

Me too, loving the kindness that can be found and given and shared. Ooops lost the quote. Have to go back and refind it. emoticon

Live in the wisdom of accepted tenderness. Tenderness awakens within the security of knowing we are thoroughly and sincerely liked by someone...
Scripture suggests that the essence of the divine nature is compassion and that the heart of God is defined by tenderness.

"Friends can help each other. A true friend is someone
who lets you have total freedom to be yourself - and
especially to feel. Or, not feel. Whatever you happen
to be feeling at the moment is fine with them. That's
what real love amounts to - letting a person be what
he (she) really is." ~ Jim Morrison

and when all the wars are over, a butterfly will still be beautiful.

- Ruskin Bond, Scenes from a Writer's Life

This reminded me of one lovely memory from childhood of being in a meadow filled with long grass and wild flowers (I was quite little) it was summer, the sun was warm and I was enchanted with so many tiny blue butterflies, I was chasing them thinking I could catch one.
It is a perfect moment in time. I can see it and feel the warmth and also the inner wonder and delight.

Sums it up in a nutshell.
She has such insight into relationships. I am a recovering co-depenent in CoDa among other 12 step programmes.

It is so wonderful to be coming out of the fog in that regard. Fear and guilt are such simple ways to control others. One to one and also one body of people to another.
Good to know that ego can attach to both ends of the spectrum. I used to think of ego being attached to the bombastic loud aggressive personality. But now understand the enormous ego can just as easily be from those at the other end of the scale as well.

Cant believe there actually is a quote which combines the thoughts of both you ladies.

"Questing... is not an ego trip; it is an adventure to bring into fulfillment your gift to the world, which is yourself."

- Joseph Campbell (he has such a kind ad compassionate face)

Loving the laughter, loving the ideas. Just loving.

Interesting quotes...
Truth...
about ourselves...

This one sums it up for me:


"Be present in all things and thankful for all things" Maya Angelou

"If you laugh you change; and when you change the world changes." Shilpa Shah

"Joy is prayer. Joy is strength. Joy is love. Joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls. She gives most who gives with Joy."

"There are only two people who can tell you the truth about yourself - an enemy who has lost his temper and a friend who loves you dearly."

- Antisthenes

PS. I am not sure that I actually agree with this statement, because I am thinking it depends very much on the level of understanding of the enemy or the friend.

I really liked another quote of his right under the one you posted which was to the effect that we should remember all the things we learn.

So many things seem to be paradoxes without the given setting.
Experience teaches lessons that I never want to forget. :)

Experiential learning is so very different from second hand learning from others.

Love the idea of unlearning the useless..

"The most useful piece of learning for the uses of life is to unlearn what is untrue."

Hi ladies, thank you for sharing your lives with me. For me the the roller coaster is quite definitely in the spiral. Thanks be to The One that the spiral is moving upwards so to speak.
We might mean a similar thing Debi. I think of it as a spiral rather than a circle for the same reason you mention. Each time around I am in a new place so see things in a clearer light.


"Unlearn Yourself

Life is not about learning through new experiences. Its about unlearning the useless, harmful information weve acquired through past experiences. What do you need to let go of that diminishes your serenity?"

No idea who wrote it, but it is "me" in a nutshell.
