...don't take anything personally...

"Don't take anything personally. Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won't be the victim of needless suffering." ..Miguel Ruiz

  • I love how the God of my Heart knows what I need when I need it. This is a topic I am working my way towards emulating...with more bumps along the road than I'd like, and one of those bumps happened earlier tonight. Thank you God for placing the loving man in my life who said something to the same effect earlier tonight and the not so subtle "coincidence" of bumping into this quote tonight for reinforcement of it's importance to personal growth and to keep working on it like the little blue engine that could!

    Never mind I think I can, I KNOW I can! And you can too.
    Peace Profound

    • Well said Amanda...perhaps the next progression is to just say "surprise me"  with zero degree of expectation...Wonderment is a bliss, all it's own.

       

      Mystically yours, Fr. Jules

  • Peace and Love, new to the area do we meet this coming SaT, Frater Talib. 405-314-2832

  • I like that. All too often we "buy" the criticism of others, when they are actually selling us bogus goods. The issue really becomes, "What do we believe about ourselves." Are we really just a body/personality or is there much more to us? To remain "immune to the opinions and actions of others" we can rely on our entire identity as Life, Light, and Love - all three - not just an individual, but the whole as well.   

  • So true, indeed, Fr. Lawrence,

    My grandfather would simply say: "Don't wear your heart on your shirt-sleeve"    LOL

    Later in life,  I discovered Grandfather's truism....."Don't let others break your heart...you can probably do that all on your own."

    ...going back to the original Discussion Statement... I feel that it has more to do with perceived negativity & criticism coming from others....don't you agree?

    ........................Thanks Lawrence for adding to this this discussion...I am in Light, as ever, Fr. jules
