There is Only One Quote is Framed on My Wall... Oprah also loves it
"Life will give you whatever experience is most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness. How do you know this is the experience that you're having? Because you're having it." Eckhart Tolle.
I love this quote and it now serves to guide me to embrace EVERY circumstance I find myself in. If I can't embrace it (some challenges are harder to embrace than others) then I do my very best to merely accept it, not to resist it.
And that's likely the miraculous key to the quote... that when you live this quote, you cease being in so much resistance to your life.
My whole life is better because of this practice.
I have a much friendlier relationship to life. I don't view things as "happening TO me." I view … [Continue reading...]

“Look on the sunny side of life.”
“Turn your face toward the sun, and the shadows will fall behind you.”
“Every day may not be good, but there is something good in every day.”
“See the glass as half-full, not half-empty.”
Researchers are finding that thoughts like these, the hallmarks of people sometimes called “cockeyed optimists,” can do far more than raise one’s spirits. They may actually improve health and extend life.
There is no longer any doubt that what happens in the brain influences what happens in the body. When facing a health crisis, actively cultivating positive emotions can boost the immune system and counter depression. Studies have shown an indisputable link between having a positive outlook and health … [Continue reading...]
