are never what a video camera would have recorded.

The difference is that one story causes us to suffer,
while the other brings us joy. I choose joy.

Oh, the comfort, the inexpressible comfort
of feeling safe with a person;
having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words,

keep what is worth keeping, and then,
with a breath of kindness, blow the rest away.
- George Eliot

Cowardice asks the question - is it safe?
Expediency asks the question - is it politic?

And there comes a time when one must take a position
that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular;
but one must take it BECAUSE it is right.

You are not your mind. You, a Spiritual BEing,
are neither your mind nor your body.
Mind and body are your tools - to use as you choose.
Sometimes your body appears to have a will of its own,

Likewise, your mind often appears to have its own will.
That incessant chattering of regret, disappointment, guilt,
shame, foreboding, worry, and fear
is your Rattlesnake Mind striking off on its own.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
