So what does the doctor order? Self love! ”

This can give rise to much hope if we let it that the future changes the second we change the now.

“It may be uncomfortable to express your own thoughts and feelings. It may also be uncomfortable to hear the truth of someone else's current thoughts and feelings. But those thoughts and feelings should never be suppressed. The only way that anyone can be in a real relationship is if those current truths are out on the table. Otherwise we can not really love the person we think we love, because we don't even see the truth of who they are in this moment. We are in essence, in love with an illusion. We are in essence, asking people to love an illusion of ourselves unless we are willing to be vulnerable and open enough to show them the truth of who we are in this moment.”

Teal Swan

“It's not the uncomfortable feelings themselves that hurt, it's our resistance to the uncomfortable feelings that causes us pain.”

“Many Years ago, Jules Verne wrote a collection of improbable stories about crafts which flew in the atmosphere, space ships, lunar explorations and submarines. These ideas, were improbable. Jules was seen as a creative but eccentric fool, unwilling to reside in reality. And his stories were isolated to the realm of science fiction. But here we are in the year 2012... with airplanes, submarines, the space shuttle and we have walked on the moon. Now... who is the fool and who is the visionary? We must learn to break free of the limitations of our own mind, for it is molding the very fabric of our reality. The future is created by the the improbable ideas of today. Visionary thinkers always run into resistance from those who would feel safer if everyone would conform to a consensus about what is real and what is possible. But... This should not stop those unique people who don't live in the prison of this kind of fear, from pushing the envelope.”
