WORDS OF WISDOM


CLINGING IN RESENTMENT?

Guidance of the Day:

When we cling to someone in resentment, we bind ourselves to him or her by our thoughts and memories.
The river of life would have us flow to the ocean, but we would cling to the rock upon which we dashed our foot.
We cannot change the events in the past, but we can always change the way we look at those events.

Those who seemed to bring us pain and hardship were our teachers who presented us with challenges
which helped us to grow into greater personal strength.
When we realize that the problem was not in them, but in the way we were looking at them,
we free ourselves as well as them. [Cohen, The Dragon Doesn’t Live

Wise Quote of the Day:
The most difficult things to accomplish are generosity in times of hardship,
abstaining in seclusion, and speaking the truth to one you fear and have hopes of. [Ma’ruf al Kharkhi]

Guidance of the Day:
We often think the big things are what really matter, but that’s not always true.
Never underestimate the importance of loving acts.
One tiny kind deed can make a world of difference– —and you may never even know it.
The wisest words about love are: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
This is a good advice—— always stop and think before you respond or act out of kindness or harshness.
Imagine how you would feel, how you would like to be treated, if you were in that person’s shoes.

The true blessing of offering love comes when you don’t need to do something for someone,
but you do it anyway—— for no other reason than your desire to be loving.
In these instances, you, as well as the person you are loving, are truly blessed. [Handbook for the Heart]

Food for Thought:
Never forget, each of your words is like a feather in the wind.
Once spoken, no amount of effort, regardless how heartfelt or sincere, can ever return them to your mouth.
Choose your words well, and guard them most of all in the presence of those you love.
