The ultimate tragedy of our times is that decent, naturally luminous people get snatched from the light within them by disturbed characters and have a hard time finding their way back.
If ever there were a time for being the light we want to see in the world it’s now.
If ever there were a time for the loving energy within us to shine, it’s now. But that takes courage and determination. And most of all, it takes faith.
Healthy boundaries are essential for protecting our hearts. But an overly defended or hardened heart finds true intimacy difficult.
Do we all need therapy? Perhaps not. Could most of us benefit from a little therapy? Probably, especially if it’s the right kind.
A healthy ego is ultimately all about getting the balance right. But that’s a real challenge, given the norms of our times.
Our high capacity to learn distinguishes us humans. And even some character-impaired individuals can choose to grow. But no new learning takes deep root without reinforcement.
The thoughts running through our head are either secure or insecure, positive or negative. But in any given moment, we have the power to change them.
Affirm yourself when you recognizing when you recognize old habits or self-defeating cycles. And affirm yourself again for every step in new, positive directions. You’ll be well on your way to more empowered living.
The secret to empowerment is simple, although not easy. But with time, practice, and especially, reinforcement, it becomes easier.
