We are the focus of our attention.

“It’s so hard to forget pain, but it’s even harder to remember sweetness. We have no scar to show for happiness. We learn so little from peace.” – Chuck Palahnuik

The separate self longs for conflict to remain isolated and self absorbed. It’s easy to create conflict, creating peace has no drama, self righteousness, and juice to it. We often like to think of this in terms of global conflicts and tragedies, but forget it happens right here with our own friends and family.

And yet, I deeply love those who see that ugly need for drama in themselves and choose another path.

Take care of you today, you’re the only one of you.

  1. The gift of patience is when we can put space between the reaction and the behavior. Yes indeed, it’s interesting when we are in observation mode and can pay attention to it. The healing and integration of the many pieces of self absolutely fascinates me. I remain in awe of the soul journey and all the wisdom that can be gained❤ thank you for this Bryan 🙏
