Thought of the Moment

It's Not About Them

It's not always easy to remember, but I think it's true: how I react to people and events around me is usually an indication of how I am doing internally. When I'm feeling irked, it's because I'm highly irk-able. I don't want to be irk-able. I want to be a mountain of peace and good humour.
 

Suffering

"When a wise person suffers, she asks herself, 'What can I do to be free from this suffering? Who can help me? What have I done to free myself from this suffering?'
 

Value

That which we obtain too easily, we esteem too lightly. It is dearness only which gives everything its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price on its goods. - Thomas Paine
 

Parents

"I've learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they're gone from your life." - Maya Angelou
 

Deciding on Someone

Some thoughts for a friend: If you're not sure about someone, remember that how they consistently behave is far more important than what they say. Your time on planet earth is your greatest gift. Don't waste any more of it with people who don't cherish you with their behaviour.
 

To Bless Everyone

When we give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed. - Maya Angelou
 

Attitude

Your attitude is the average attitude of the people you spend the most time with.
 

To Torture Others

The healthy man does not torture others – generally it is the tortured who turn into torturers. - Jung
 

Choice

I am not what happened to me. I am what I choose to become. - C.G. Jung
 

Sorry

<em>Sorry</em> means you feel the pulse of other people's pain as well as your own, and saying it means you take a share of it. And so it binds us together, makes us trodden and sodden as one another. Sorry is a lot of things. It's a hole refilled. A debt repaid. Sorry is the wake of misdeed. It's the crippling ripple of consequence. Sorry is sadness, just as knowing is sadness. Sorry is sometimes self-pity. But Sorry, really, is not about you. It's theirs to take or leave. Sorry means you leave yourself open, to embrace or to ridicule or to revenge.
