I have been reading the newest book from Marianne Williamson: Divine Compensation. It is fabulous and such a “helping hand”. I highly recommend to get this. Check it out on http://www.Marianne.com.
On page 7 of the book she talks about: “It is not our circumstances, but rather our thoughts about our circumstances, that determine our power to transform them”. Thus in other words: “The way I relate to the issue, is the issue and how I am with myself while going through the issue is the issue”. Therefore, I have the great opportunity to reflect on myself, my own learning and growth instead of putting it “out there”. More so, I have the chance to be loving and kind to myself, even when times are tough and I can choose to look at “the issue” as an opportunity in disguise. Taking off the mask of the goblin with loving will reveal a beautiful being.
