All pain is self-inflicted.
Celtic Vows of Friendship
I honor your path
I bring an unprotected heart to our meeting place
I drink from your well
I hold no cherished outcome
I will not negotiate by withholding
I am not subject to disappointment
The degree of attachment we have to an outcome determines the level of disappointment we feel when things don’t go as planned. This is one barometer we can use to measure how much we have grown as well as what remains to be healed.
When you choose to consciously live fully present, two things occur: your history, and the baggage that goes along with it, becomes less important and you learn to joyfully embrace what is.
Living (and acting) without expectation cultivates the ability to move into acceptance more easily. We learn to allow people to be who they are. Challenges are transformed into opportunities and we discover empowerment.
You can create the life of your dreams. Honor your path by acting with integrity, doing your best and accepting what is. Everything else will fall into place.
