Well I sure have nothing good to say

So my blog will again remain almost free of the crap-o-la bouncing around between my ears. But I am going to once again liberate some great thoughts from else where. If they are yours and you want credit for them I will link it. If they are yours and want them off my site E-mail me and I will amend my blog. Its time for me to just listen.

for a new-found ability to keep my damn mouth shut

I have to keep reminding myself that I am not "better than" anyone else. But I have the option of being better than I am. That's my choice

Interpretation and commentary happen so fast .. I don’t stand a chance of catching even a glimpse of the way things really are ..which makes worrying about them a misuse of my imagination.

." So the idea she uses is to think of someone who hurts you as an "account." Briefly review that hurt in your mind when it arises, go in and visualize canceling that debt. Then, if the thought comes back, that resentment, that anger over the event or circumstances, don't fight the thought. (The Buddhist tradition has taught us much here!) Instead, in your mind, visually check that account tied to that resentment or person or institution and say, "Yes, I canceled that debt; the account is empty."

There is one of mine. I neither want credit or for you to take them off your post.
I'm here if you want to email. I don't know if I can help, but I know that I will try.
Peace and LOVE, Barbara,
