So, I had a headache and decided to use Tapping on the headache - now the headache is gone. How many times have I endured or taken aspirin for a headache? Would Tapping have worked on those other headaches? Probably.
My problem is that I don’t remember. I teach others skills to help themselves – Yoga, Meditation, Tapping, Breathwork, others. I remind my clients constantly, “Don’t forget your skills! Remember, you have all of these skills!” and I forget.
During these times of extreme stress in our country and on our planet, we all need to remember our skills. The skills of pausing and breathing. Moving. Walking in nature. Hugging a kitten or a tree. Yoga. Meditation, Breathing, all of it.
The skills will help us remember our core beliefs. And one of our most common core beliefs is that love will carry us through. Love will carry us through, help us carry others through, and the effect will ripple out across the globe.
I leave these words here for you:
“Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.” ~~~ Martin Luther King Jr.
“I have decided to stick to love...Hate is too great a burden to bear.” ~~~ Martin Luther King Jr.
“The value of love will always be stronger than the value of hate. Any nation or group of nations that employs hatred eventually is torn to pieces by hatred." ~~~Franklin D. Roosevelt
“In our imaginations we believe that love is apart from us. Actually there is nothing but love, once we are ready to accept it. When you truly find love, you find yourself.” ~~~ Deepak Chopra
“The world is too dangerous for anything but truth and too small for anything but love.” ~~~ William Sloane Coffin
Remember your skills so you can remember to live in love.
