Are You the Author of Your Life

"I am the author of my life. Unfortunately, I'm writing in pen and I cannot erase my mistakes." [Bill Kaulitz]
When was it the first time you realized that you were actually the author of your life? I was so caught up in simply surviving life that I paid no attention to what I wanted. I had no goals, no dreams, no ambitions . . . nothing. I was only surviving; trying to find a way to live through and then, later, escape my circumstances.  
I lived under the clouds of dysfunction. My father was an alcoholic who abused my mother. Both parents weren't around emotionally. There was also sexual abuse when I was a child and then in my adolescents two sexual assaults. Dreams. Goals. Aspirations. What were they?
It was only when I met my first husband that I started to see that I could dream and create my reality. Although our relationship didn't work out, he taught me a lot about going after my dreams. After that, I fall into two dysfunctional relationships, and serving the…

How to Receive Love and Joy

How to Receive Love and Joy
"Joy is a return to the deep harmony of body, mind, and spirit that was yours at birth and that can be yours again; that openness to love, that capacity for wholeness with the world around you, is still within you." [Deepak Chopra]
As Chopra stated, to receive love and joy go inward and recognize who you are - the deep orderly pleasing part. Because only there will you open up to experience true love and joy.
Clean up your messes, your emotional and mental baggage from the past; lift the veil or the stuff that holds you down so that you experience you.

We Can Learn to Love with Our Crooked (Imperfect) Heart

We Can Learn to Love with Our Crooked Heart

By working with the repressed emotion in the body (e.g., anger, rage), we realize that we are human, and that there is no such thing as a perfect human being. In fact, the better we think we are and the more we imagine we are, the darker our shadow is, and the darker the material that we have to release. 
 When we know how much rage and grief and jealousy and greed and lust are in us, we have to forgive ourselves for being human.

To forgive is to transform what we otherwise reject. Some people find that very hard because they've been brought up to be perfect. But once we know that we can love ourselves with all our human flaws and idiosyncrasies then we can love others from that same place. 
 Or, as W. H. Auden had stated, "We can learn to love each other with our own crooked heart."

Love the Fool in Me

"I must learn to love the fool in me -- the one who feels too much, talks too much, takes too many chances, wins sometimes and loses often, lacks self-control, loves and hates, hurts and gets hurt, promises and breaks promises, laughs and cries. It alone protects me against that utterly self-controlled, masterful tyrant whom I also harbour, and who would rob me of human aliveness, humility, and dignity but for my fool."

~Theodore I. Rubin, MD
