I am doing better now & stopped searching for enlightenment

Postby Clouded » Tue Sep 02, 2014 4:21 am

I don't post on this forum as much as I used to because I don't feel the need to share my thoughts/problems. I really want to move on and end my attachment to my past conditioning because most of it is not helpful in helping me feel better about what I experience in this life. Has anyone come across Dr. Amy Johnson? She has written 2 books in my knowing and I highly recommend them. Here's an excerpt from one of her books: http://dramyjohnson.com/wp-content/uplo ... ohnson.pdf

Sounds good, I like in the first bit:
accepting
exactly What Is
and then
creating what you want when and where
you can


its the combo.... accepting what is (which et stresses)
and THEN creating what you want
so its a win win
if you don't manage (this time, next time or ever) to create what you want.......... its still ok

Long time no talk! I hope you are doing well :) . I'm glad I discovered Eckhart Tolle and came to this forum, it helped me see my experiences a little more clearer and I do feel like I am more aware of how I am the one who is creating my own reality and not circumstances. I feel like everything will always be ok and if it doesn't feel ok, it's only temporary.

Things started getting interesting for me when I gave up the search for enlightenment. Hang on.
