Force doesn’t help us change or improve

Whether it’s replacing the memory in your computer, swapping out vacuum cleaner attachments, or improving your state of mind, forcing things never works. The key to finding grace, resilience, endurance, or whatever we really need in a given situation is to be with what is happening, not to fight against it.

Wendi Saggese and I ended up exploring this in some depth during the March Wholeness Hangout. You can watch the replay (or download the audio) here. 

The spirituality we seek is in what we look from, not what we look for

Often we long for spiritual connection and wish we could experience more of it in our relationships, our work, our world. But the connection we seek isn’t a function of what we are looking FOR, it is a function of what we are looking FROM. To experience more of it, we simply need to pause, settle down, and come home to what we already know about who we really are.

Worrying doesn’t help; not worrying doesn’t hurt

The title says it all, except for this: “No, really.” In every situation, including horrific ones, worrying doesn’t help. Caring helps. Love helps. And the less we worry, the clearer our minds and freer our hearts to express caring and love.
