Diane's new picture
My very wonderful friend, Marge Rock, once told me that I could no longer be a victim, that I could no longer blame my life on anyone else. She explained that once we become adults, it is our own responsibility to free ourselves of the stories of our past in order to move towards inner freedom.  At the time I was throwing myself a real pity party and she did not want an invitation! 

As I continue to do this work, I find myself becoming less and less tolerant of those who wish to stay in the throes of their misery.  This is not to say that I don't have compassion for their journeys or the suffering that they have incurred.  But if we dwell on the suffering, if we dwell on the blame, if we continue to sit in the quagmire of our past, we will never find the joy of life.

There comes a time, if we truly desire happiness, that we must stop indicting those we feel have harmed us or prevented us from experiencing the wholeness of life.  We absolutely CANNOT make a shift unless we are willing to let go of vilifying others for how our lives turned out.  You and I are very capable of making the necessary changes which will lead to inner freedom and fulfillment.

We have a plethora of resources available to us to assist us in this process.  I strongly encourage finding a qualified counselor who can assist you through the process. There are wonderful books available - The Undefended Self, The Four Agreements, Seat of the Soul and Anatomy of the Spirit - just to name a few.  Find an energy healer who is capable of directing you into yourself (not telling you what THEY see, hear or feel) and allowing you to discover your own answers.

Learn forgiveness!  The best definition I have heard for forgiveness is "Letting go of hope for a better yesterday!". My belief is that we come into this lifetime with the parents, families and friends of our choice.  How can we continue to blame them when we chose them to help us with our lessons? 

Take classes with teachers who have experience in this arena.  Find a group of like minded people who have the desire to change.  Find a spiritual advisor who can keep you on task.  You don't have to do this alone - you have many resources. 

It's time for all of us to make self examination a daily dedication. Don't like your life? Change it!  Is it easy?  Probably not or else everyone would be doing it.  But the rewards will far outweigh the risks.  This is my fervent wish for everyone - find joy in your life!  Let's live a life of celebration - it's not too late to start!

ourselves, and ALL THAT IS.


If something could help you to realize your dreams or to fulfill your potential. Wouldn't that be wonderful?
