Power of focus.
Yes, allow yourself to meet you.

Beautiful poem! Let’s subscribe to love!

As consumers in life,
We notice that there are two great offers everyday.
We can buy the flashy mass media message called ‘FEAR’
Or we can subscribe to the subtle voice inside named ‘LOVE’
I get horribly depressed when I consume FEAR.
The interest charged by it is a compounding one.
Always, it eats into my reserve of happiness.
On those days, when I avoid the temptation of the former,
And choose the simple offer of LOVE,
I feel liberated beyond measure.
My heart becomes kinder,
And I seem to walk lighter.
Even … the air smells fresher.
Magnificent!!! I love Abraham-Hicks!

“When you acknowledge that over time, you began to care what others think of you. Most people are more aware of how others are perceiving them. You care more about their looking at you and what they think as they look, than you do about how you feel. People are always running around wanting to find ways to get others to love them or approve of them or appreciate them, when really the answer is, if you could just start loving and approving and appreciating, you’d solve your own problem. In other words, if you could just get that appreciation flowing through you, you’d have no awareness of what was coming back to you.”
“It’s not about you! They’re looking at you and they’re talking to you and they’re talking about you but it’s not about you. Everybody’s just trying to feel a little better. And if you could not take it so personally…if you could stand back and think to yourself, ‘this isn’t about me, it’s about them trying to figure out how to close the gap’.”
“The reason you want someone to love you is because when someone holds you as their object of attention and they are loving you, they are, in the moment of loving you, tuned in to who they really are so the whole of them is holing you as their object of attention. And in their love – oh does it ever feel good to you! So then you say ’oh this feels so good, what can I do to maintain more of that?’ But that’s the trap! Because if you’re looking to that person, like a grandmother or a mother or a teacher or a girlfriend or a lover, if you’re looking to anyone else to be the vortex through which the love is shined, now they’ve always got to be around, they’ve always got to be in a good mood, they’ve always got to be tuned in, you’ve always got to be their singular object of attention. And if they look away or if they get in a bad mood, you feel like a puppet like somebody’s let go of the strings. When they love you, you love it so much that you stand on your head to maintain that loveand when they, for whatever reason, aren’t loving you, you take it personally. You say ’I did something to cause them to love me and it felt so good and now they’re not loving me, I wonder how I have failed them.’ And that is the BASIS of all unworthiness. Do you know, there are people all over the place that right now aren’t tuned in to who they are and they’ve got nothing to give you and when you expect to get appreciation from someone that’s not hooked into appreciation, they’re not going to appreciated and you’re going to feel unappreciated and most of you then take it personally, and it’s not personal.”
