Bla(me)

Some people’s blameless lives are to blame for a good deal-

May this post serve as a fertile metaphor for rediscovering our basic goodness

For us to recognize and acknowledge our basic goodness we need to first peel away the layers of “whatever” it is that hides us from our true selves.

The first layer to peel away, which I have picked at many of times, is developing and nurturing a certain sense of self-compassion. Self-compassion (for me) comes from an understanding of what I am actually feeling in any given moment: Anxiety, Fear, Pride, Having a Pity Party  Understanding my motivation(s) is integral to moving from an attitude of sadness to one of happiness.

Daily Meditation:

We create our prison, yet we also hold the key.

Something to ponder this week.

    You suppose you are the trouble
    But you are the cure
    You suppose that you are the lock on the door
    But you are the key that opens it
    It’s too bad that you want to be someone else
    You don’t see your own face, your own beauty
    Yet, no face is more beautiful than yours.
    — Rumi

  2. We often wish we could trade lives with other people but we rarely stop to consider that we will turn their lives into our lives until we change ourselves.

    I really enjoy your blog, btw 🙂
