When anger arrives.

When anger, hate, or resentment are present, happiness is not, drama ensues.

When I believe the storyline of unworthiness, depression is my companion.

When desires lead to a feeling of lack, that needy victim comes out to play.

When lost in thought, dissociative and unaware, boredom and confusion are my rewards.

When coveting something from another, my life is hapless and hopeless.

When the need for approval overwhelms all else, I am lost and wasting life.

When I let go and observe life as it is, happiness becomes available.

Identifying with our thoughts and emotions brings suffering, observing them from a distance brings opportunity.

I may struggle at times but I know the path back to observing life in the present.

    Thank you Marty for all your daily posts. I printed this one, as I need to remind myself of all of these emotions and stories apply to me throughout a typical day.

  4. I travel the same path and it takes our constant awareness

  5. Real and raw. Thank you 🙏

  6. Meditating is not always gentle and passive

    Meditating and healing was violent when trauma finally exited my being

    Take courage to face what scares us

    ThaNks for your insight
