Reading of the Day: Accept What Is Done Is Done

I think this is worthy enough to be shared, it’s in one of my newsletter I subsribed :):

Rule 3. Accept What Is Done Is Done by Richard Templar

Excerpt from the book Rules of Life, The: A Personal Code for Living a Better, Happier, More Successful Life by Richard Templar

People make mistakes. Sometimes very serious ones. As often as not, the mistakes aren’t deliberate or personal. Sometimes people just don’t know what they are doing. This means that if, in the past, people have behaved badly toward you, it wasn’t necessarily because they meant to be horrible, but because they were as naïve, as foolish, as human as the rest of us. They made mistakes in the way they brought you up or finished a relationship with you or whatever ...

Lovable You — Warts ’N All!

I feel caught up in deep shame feelings about my body. I have a hormonal imbalance which makes it quite hairy, and I don’t like my weight. Before, I was thin — I still didn’t like it.

Nothing is wrong in being hairy, mm? And nothing is wrong in being fat! They are just ...

On Overwhelm?

Often a feeling that I can’t describe fills my heart and my whole being. It is there in deep love — but a similar feeling also comes up in fear, anguish, pain, helplessness and frustration.

There is certainly something very similar in very different emotions: the overwhelmingness. It may be love, it may be hate, it may be ...

Using Times of Crisis

I feel so confused…. Good and bad don’t have any meaning anymore.

Whenever there is a crisis of identity, whenever people don’t know who they are, whenever the past loses its grip, whenever people are uprooted from the traditional, whenever the past no longer seems relevant, this crisis arises, a great crisis of identity ...

THE NEED TO BE SPECIAL

From Osho Times Online: Your Answers Quetioned on Emotions (Dec 5 Issue)

I feel depressed and self-condemnatory, although I don’t really know why….

That is a way to remain the same…that is a trick of the mind. Rather than understanding, the energy starts moving into condemnation…and the change comes through understanding, not through condemnation. So the mind is very cunning: the moment you start seeing ...

Living in Fear

From Osho Times Online: Your Answers Quetioned on Emotions (Nov 13 Issue)

All your fears are by-products of identification.

You love a woman and with the love, in the same parcel comes fear: she may leave you — she has already left somebody and come with you. There is a precedent; perhaps she will do the same to you. There is fear, you feel knots in the stomach. You are too ...

Reading Of The Day: Toxic Vocabulary

Seh Hui Leong

Excerpts

From my newsletter subscription:

Do you speak to your kids this way?

Written by Bart Baggett
Source: Handwriting University Weekly Strokes, 10 November 2005

I remember my dad teaching me the power of language at a very young age. Not only did my dad understand that specific words affect our mental pictures, but he understood words are a powerful programming factor in lifelong success.

One particularly interesting event occurred when I was eight. As a kid, I was always climbing trees, poles, and literally hanging around upside down from the rafters of our lake house. So, it came as no surprise to my dad to find me at the top of a 30-foot tree, swinging back and forth. My little eight-year-old brain didn’t realize the tree could break or I could get hurt. I ...

Reading Of The Day: The Problem as an Ego Tonic

Seh Hui Leong

Excerpts

Somehow when I’m reading this, I just can’t stop laughing at myself: It’s like… I’m fully aware of this and this topic has been covered many times in self-help books, and yet I’m still foolishly forgetful.

Hmm… probably my LJ would become less and less of a diary and more and more of an archive of readings and experiences? 😊

Anyway, I believe this would be beneficial to all.

On an Emotional Roller-Coaster

From Osho Times Online: Your Answers on Emotions (Oct 24 Issue)

I feel I’m always on a roller – coaster of feelings. How to get off it? I’ve tried just watching them all but as soon as one has gone, up comes something else!

Live each emotion that you feel. It is you.

Hateful, ugly, unworthy — whatever it is, actually ...

I suffer immensely from loneliness. What can I do about it?

From Osho Times Online: Your Answers on Relating (Oct 17 Issue)

The darkness of loneliness cannot be fought directly. It is something essential for everyone to understand, that there are a few fundamental things which cannot be changed. This is one of the fundamentals: you cannot fight with darkness directly, with loneliness directly, with the fear of isolation directly. The reason is ...
