If ain’t Love, it ain’t True

This has got to be my favourite post from The Light Tree, a community of healers in Victoria, BCPainting of a Heart

Taking responsibility for every thought we think, every belief we hold sacred, is the first step to freedom.

The crucial thing is to remember that we are healing and to be gentle with ourselves. We find it helpful to have friends who continually remind us that none of our beliefs are true, unless they reflect love. Joining in criticism or attack only deepens the wound and prolongs suffering because it makes a false idea seem real.
As we are healing, we notice that we drift between feeling deep peace, joy and love, and sensations of unworthiness, anger and fear. Its okay, this is to be expected. We stay with the feeling as much as we can and do not try to distract ourselves from feeling it fully. The more we are willing to sit and experience everything the discomfort is trying to convey, the more it dissolves into nothingness. It releases its hold because it’s only:

F.E.A.R., False Evidence Appearing Real.

Well if that ain’t the truth, I don’t know what is 😉   Thank you friends.
