Self-deception seems always to depend upon the dream world, because you would like to see what you have not yet seen, rather than what you are now seeing. Self-deception manifests in trying to create or recreate a dream world, the nostalgia of the dream experience. The opposite of self-deception is just working with the facts of life.

      We may love the wrong person, cry for the wrong person. But one thing is sure, mistakes help us find the right person.

      I am so very grateful that finally the bitter sting of losing my first and only grandson has started to fade. I realized this when I was able to post that I was grateful again for the many blessing that have been bestowed upon me. I used to be able to see the vast beauty that surrounded me, but I had temporarily chosen to give up my sight. It did not want to see what I had lost and in looking at what I had, only made the pain seem worse.
      Losing Noah was the hardest thing that I have ha...

        Oh Albert so sorry for such a big loss in your life, and at the same time, such a big gift! You are so blessed to have come to this deep and powerful understanding and thank you for sharing it here. Noah is still with you, very much alive, just beyond the limits of sight. All our loved ones are always with us, and we them, eternally. When you think of him, he smiles and feels your love and caring...and returns it many times over!
        sending much love! eme

        For this moment, the words are resting and all I can offer, all I'm compelled to share and receive is a deep, loving soul embrace. :)

      Grateful for not getting involved in drama. For standing in my groundedness instead. Grateful for compassion.

      Grateful for returning home tomorrow.

      Grateful for my chilled out evening in the hotel after my workout.

      Grateful for having conversations where what I say is not heard. Where my questions are not returned. Grateful for the sun breaking through the clouds and shining onto the little pond, which then caused dancing water reflections on the ceiling of the cantene when I decided to ...

      In memory of Wayne Dyer, Hay House are offering us the opportunity to watch The Shift movie for FREE for the next 7 days (perhaps 5 from today). Here is the link. Watched it today and it's great!
