Thoughts and Noticings #WTJ

    

Some thoughts…and noticings…on participating in the Wreck this Journal group:

While watching Jamie in this video for week #3 of Wreck this Journal, I got a catch in my…well…call it psyche.  Why do we need to share?  or destroy?  or change?   How do we teach this?  Should we teach this?

Thinking so often of the phrase, “This Too Shall Pass”, I continue to see that, even though I can wreck some of this journal…I hold back in other areas of my life. 

Here is an excerpt from Echart Tolle’s Book The Power of NOW:

To offer no resistance to life is to be in a state of grace, ease, and lightness. This state is then no longer dependent upon things being in a certain way, good or bad. It seems almost paradoxical, yet when your inner dependency on form is gone, the general conditions of your life, the outer forms, tend to improve greatly. Things, people, or conditions that you thought you needed for your happiness now come to you with no struggle or effort on your part, and you are free to enjoy and appreciate them – while they last. All those things, of course, will still pass away, cycles will come and go, but with dependency gone there is no fear of loss anymore. Life flows with ease.  —Echart Tolle

  1. The thing I love about this book, this exercise, is how it is quietly changing my compulsion for perfection. Without even thinking about it, I’m calming down about other things in my life: Letting go of some family things I can’t control; Not obsessing about the cleanliness of the house before the in-laws arrive; Taking a risk on something I’ve always wanted to do, but was afraid. Most of all, not getting wrapped up in a moment, because, in another moment, it’s gone and I can be onto something new. “This too shall pass” is a great mantra!
