To offer no resistance to life is to be in a state of grace, ease, and lightness. This state is then no longer dependent upon things being in a certain way, good or bad. It seems almost paradoxical, yet when your inner dependency on form is gone, the general conditions of your life, the outer forms, tend to improve greatly. Things, people, or conditions that you thought you needed for your happiness now come to you with no struggle or effort on your part, and you are free to enjoy and appreciate them - while they last. All those things, of course, will still pass away, cycles will come and go, but with dependency gone there is no fear of loss anymore. Life flows with ease. “If your mind carries a heavy burden of past, you will experience more of the same. The past perpetuates itself through lack of presence. The quality of your consciousness at this moment is what shapes the future.

Estas dos verdades son TODO lo que necesitas aceptar AHORA MISMO. Lento y fácil mi amigo. Nada que descubrir o EXPLICAR, ¿está bien?

At this time in history, the contemporary choice offered most Americans is between unstable correctness (liberals) and stable illusion (conservatives)! What a choice!  There’s no real transformation in either case. Neither expelling nor excluding (conservative temptation), nor perfect explaining (liberal temptation) is our task. There are commonly two kinds of human beings: there are people who want certitude and there are people who want understanding; and these two cannot understand one another. Really. Those who demand certitude out of life will insist on it even if it doesn’t fit the facts. Logic has nothing to do with it. Truth has nothing to do with it. “Don’t bother me with the truth—I’ve already come to my conclusion!”  If you need certitude, you will come to your conclusion. You will surround yourself with your conclusion.  Change is not what we expect from religious people. They tend to love the past more than the present or the future. Until we learn to love others as ourselves, it’s difficult to blame broken people who desperately try to affirm themselves when no one else will. Ability to laugh at evil, to relativize symbols without dismissing them is usually a sign of a rather healthy person. Puritans and reformers can never laugh.

REPEAT After Me: I accept myself. I love myself. I forgive myself for what I didn’t know until I learned it.

Did you do it? How do you feel? Maybe a tad bit lighter and happier?

Or maybe not. I hope you don’t fall into this category but I know some of my readers do. You may be so deeply rooted into self-criticism that you have grown a thick layer of cynicism, one that you may mistakenly think of as self-protection. How do I know this? Well, experience, of course. A few years ago, I was as negative, cynical and pessimistic as they come – and what’s funny, I didn’t even see myself that way. I saw myself as “realistic”!!

I used to think to myself, “I’m protecting myself against all the new-age positive hoopla that is going around, because everyone knows that’s not real, the reality is that life is hard, and I need to be harsh on myself to get ahead, to improve, and to show the world what I have.”

I was constantly busy proving myself, getting approval from parents, bosses, colleagues, professors, teachers, friends, and strangers before I ever gave myself any approval – and even at the height of praise and approval, I would find a hundred faults with myself.

Most people trust death more than resurrection and this is why cynicism is so wide spread. Listen.

Whether conservative or liberal, black or white, the tribe mentality is very narrow and highly judgmental. Listen.

I enjoy both reading and writing quotes. Hope you will find even a few meaningful.

Today is the tomorrow that worried you yesterday and all is well.

When you’re in your mind you’re not at peace and when you’re at peace you’re not in your mind.

It’s virtually impossible to panic when fully present.

What is happiness? Drop your fears, attachments, illusions and the historical egoistically driven storyline and you will know.

Ego is the anaesthesia that deadens the pain of stupidity.

Once patience becomes easy, paradoxically, the hardest part is over.

Forgiveness is to set your hostage free and then realise that you were the only prisoner.

Nearly 100 percent of all inner conflict stems from continuing to question the simple answer well after it already has.

Find happiness first where you most had it last.

Whoever or whatever we judge, we simply will not understand. Truth is, we don’t want to.

Before we question another person’s character, we’d better have answers that fully explain our own.

Peace of mind comes by way of making our final decision decidedly final.

It takes only a moment to be kind and only a moment to wish we would have been.

Happiness is our natural state. Happiness is the natural state of little children, to whom the kingdom belongs until they have been polluted and contaminated by the stupidity of society and culture. To acquire happiness you don't have to do anything, because happiness cannot be acquired. Does anybody know why? Because we have it already. How can you acquire what you already have? Then why don't you experience it? Because you've got to drop something. You've got to drop illusions. You don't have to add anything in order to be happy; you've got to drop something. Life is easy, life is delightful. It's only hard on your illusions, your ambitions, your greed, your cravings. Do you know where these things come from? From having identified with all kinds of labels!

The word “transformation” is used frequently today. But what does it actually mean to be transformed? And how does true transformation happen?

Richard Rohr suggests there are three key components to spiritual transformation-

The Necessity of a Foundational Conversion: An experience of the Absolute, a radical change of consciousness, an initiating experience, Twelve-Step work, or ego and shadow work.

The Sign of Spiritual Conversion: A never-failing movement toward the edge, the bottom, the suffering, and the simple.

A Practice for Staying Open: Some form of quieting, meditation, contemplation, solitude, and silence.

Fr. Richard explores how and why this sequence is necessary for our growth as spiritual human beings. At the end of the teaching he addresses thoughtful questions from the audience.

This talk was presented via live webcast in February 2016.
