Today’s been a long day. Not too much to say. Had a great morning/early afternoon golfing with some amazing people. Ended the day swallowing my own shit instead of appreciating what I’ve learned over the past month or so. So, in order to bring that back up to the front of my mind, and maybe yours, I figured I might as well share:
“Perfect love casts out fear. Where there is love there are no demands, no expectations, no dependency. I do not demand that you make me happy; my happiness does not lie in you. If you were to leave me, I will not feel sorry for myself; I enjoy your company immensely, but I do not cling.”
― Anthony de Mello, Awareness: A de Mello Spirituality Conference in His Own Words
Highly recommend reading this book if you haven’t already. And yeah, the quote is much harder to put into practice than it is to read. You’ll fail, but maybe one time you won’t. And that will be the time that matters.
I wish you well. Try not to beat the shit out of yourself.
