Bla(me)Posted: November 12, 2013
Some people’s blameless lives are to blame for a good deal-
May this post serve as a fertile metaphor for rediscovering our basic goodness …
For us to recognize and acknowledge our basic goodness we need to first peel away the layers of “whatever” it is that hides us from our true selves.
The first layer to peel away, which I have picked at many of times, is developing and nurturing a certain sense of self-compassion. Self-compassion (for me) comes from an understanding of what I am actually feeling in any given moment: Anxiety, Fear, Pride, Having a Pity Party … Understanding my motivation(s) is integral to moving from an attitude of sadness to one of happiness.
We create our prison, yet we also hold the key.
Something to ponder this week.
