These unpleasant events replaying in your mind do not exist. They are not happening now. They are memories which you are reacting to. When you let go of memory and become present, there is nothing from the past that can hurt you.

I really needed this today.
One of the most satisfying experiences I know is just fully to appreciate an individual in the same way I appreciate a sunset. When I look at a sunset … I don’t find myself saying, “Soften the orange a little on the right hand corner, and put a bit more purple in the cloud color” … I don’t try to control a sunset. I watch it with awe as it unfolds. It is this receptive, open attitude which is necessary to truly perceive something as it is.

I do not think I’m easy to define. I have a wandering mind. And I’m not anything that you think I am.
