Negative emotions serve a purpose, and we mustn’t run away from them but deal with them with openness and compassion.
Acceptance allows you the freedom to be yourself, because when we’re consumed by pain and suffering, we are not our true selves.
We must let go of the notion that life follows the same trajectory of the past, because life doesn’t know what it will become until we step into it. It is a new canvas we create each day, and we have more power than we realize.
Finding meaning in our trauma requires digging up the past and deciding what is worth keeping and what should be left behind.
It is whether we are actively pursuing our purpose that matters.
Life and Mother Nature are giving in so many ways and it makes sense if we are the expression of life, we must also be of service to others.
Once we stop running from ourselves, we are ready to be intimate with an expansive love that dwells within us.
These are the people that will light the spark of ingenuity and inspiration for mankind.
Next to each emotion, write what you consider is the opposite of that emotion. For example if you feel fear, what is the opposite of fear for you? Is it: courage, faith, hope or patience?
The inner critic is not the real you—it is an invented persona.
