Since there’s a crazy cold wave moving across the northern part of the country. Below zero in Colorado today. What’s up with that???
Fortunately, we have Hot Truth Bombs from these Bright Lights to keep us warm…
A Forgiveness Truth Bomb from Acacia Land:
Forgiveness to me means releasing the need for a better past. We get caught in a need or expectation in the mind that it should have been better than it was. My mother should have loved me more, my step father should not have abused me. I have no control over that. When I look from there perspective, they are in so much suffering. I know now hurt people hurt people. I have so much compassion and anger. Which is a beautiful knowing of my boundaries when not being respected. I learned that through the dysfunction of my family.
When we are present( which to me means allowing all to be here, inclusive not exclusive) and there is a pain I am carrying from a painful situation I am really carrying the emotional residue from that situation in my body from a mental story or perception I am running. When I don’t have a safe place inside out to feel it it becomes a clump of energy in my body that I carry.
Forgiveness to me has become a process of my own willingness to look at a toxic emotion I am creating from a painful situation that I am still creating in my mind and unwilling to see it any other way than how I was victimized. Which may be true. Pain happens in life, it is undeniable, but the suffering happens when we continually tell the story about it. When we don’t have safe places to just feel the pain.
I agree there is a lot of bypassing because many of us have swung the other direction and don’t want to hurt others. We made in our minds a story about forgiveness. I feel it happens authentically when we can get out of our ideas about it and feel it. Like love for me or compassion, to forgive is not possible in our minds alone. Our minds work on separating like our egos. Our hearts and bodies know a great way to do that that brings a peace that our little minds could not comprehend. This is my take on forgiving. It’s For Giving insights on how to be more true to ourselves.
A Mistakes Truth Bomb from Dr. Bob Clarke
Mistakes are the precursors to GREAT accomplishments…
They’re simply one more piece of the puzzle in place.
A Work And Play Truth Bomb from Kevin Knebl:
MY BREAKFAST WAITRESS AT THE RESORT I’M SPEAKING AT TODAY: “You have to work today?”
ME: “I haven’t worked since June 5th, 2009.”
HER: “You’re wearing a suit and you’re not working?”
ME: “You have to know my definition of work. In my world, work is doing something you don’t want to do, with people you don’t want to see, at a place you don’t want to go, at a time you don’t want to go there, for too little money. I don’t work anymore. And I have no intention of ever going back.”
HER: “You’re kinda different….”
ME: “Thank you. Praise God.”
Life is beautiful. ツ
A Network Marketing Truth Bomb from Tony Rush:
ON LEAVING A NETWORK MARKETING COMPANY: The best opportunity for you is the one that is most in alignment with your goals…..
….and where you are not only passionate about what you’re doing but you also have ZERO counter-intention.
If there are ethical, moral or business issues that would keep you from enrolling your own sister or mother or dad in the business….
….it’s time to find a new business opportunity.
A Do More Truth Bomb from Edie Galley:
Sometimes just when you think you can do no more you realize you absolutely can.
May you let go of your limits today and go just a little further than you ever thought you could!
Dig deeper, believe stronger and go all in…YOU are oooooh so worth it!
A Radiant Energy Truth Bomb from me:
I’m looking around today and see all these amazing people. Some are shining, radiating love, energy, ambition. Some are pushing it down. Some have no idea it’s in them. I see it in them even if it’s far away from what they’re living.
And since I’ve been in all of those places myself, it’s that much easier to reflect love rather than judgment.
Whatever you’ve got going today, try and see the heroic in others. And take your own out for a spin!
And Finally, a Listening Truth Bomb from Lisa Kitter:
Listen with your heart and not with your head, discount the words and you will “hear” everything not said – then you will know the truth!
