When I sit here to start writing about this I get such a feeling of “Wow, this is what started to change my life!” At the time could I have said what I was doing was expanding my life? I do not think so.
When I look back now though I sure can feel that is the very space that started me feeling and understanding the truth. Continue reading →
In my last post I was talking about detaching from another persons frame of reference as well as our own. Let’s explore further…
It is possible to be very happy with the world around you no matter what the life experience is with the people that you share your life with. Yes, it is!
Once again, the first place you want to begin is in the understanding of detachment. It does not mean going far, far away in your mind. It does not mean you are sharing a house with someone but not having a very fulfilling life with that person. Continue reading →
The thing that I have found the hardest to understand about detachment was that I had to let go of what the other person was doing. That is what was hurting me the most. Why can they not just see that it is their action that is the most offensive.
I spent much time trying to gain this understanding. Now to some this may be so simple. For me it was hard to grasp the concept: Do not throw away the person… Just learn to understand they are not doing any thing to you. Continue reading →

Depending on the reaction of those around us we chose if we were going to do it again.
Then there are those well-meaning parents that can not see that a small Being can and has made a life choice for themselves.
They begin to try and sway the small child to their way of thinking. That forces the small child, the young Being, to walk away from the truth that the child is still very much in contact with. Young children have not been away from the Universal Source as long as the well-meaning parent.
Why would we not want to tell ourselves the truth? I think we would all most emphatically say, “Of course we want the truth!” Yet I have seen time and time again, when given a choice in the beginning of the introduction of self accountability and responsibility, we choose to believe in the lie; the story that we have told ourselves about our life. Wow! This blew me away when I first started teaching!
