# 2 – 12 quotes from Pema Chodron, including this…..

Feelings like disappointment, embarrassment, irritation, resentment, anger, jealousy, and fear, instead of being bad news, are actually very clear moments that teach us where it is that we’re holding back. They teach us to perk up and lean in when we feel we’d rather collapse and back away. They’re like messengers that show us, with terrifying clarity, exactly where we’re stuck. This very moment is the perfect teacher, and, lucky for us, it’s with us wherever we are. ― Pema Chödrön

# 5 – This is a really good one from Abe to sink your teeth into and wrap your mind around….

The choices that others make cannot negatively impact your experience unless you include them in your experience through your attention to them. Things come to you only through your Vibrational invitation—and they remain only by your continuing attention to them.

Your Universe is based upon freedom. Freedom for everyone to choose what they give their attention to, and therefore what they choose to experience. And your interaction with one another provides a contrasting basis that assures continual expansion.

When others achieve Vibrational alignment with something they desire, they in no way deprive you of your desires. If your time-space reality has inspired a desire within you, it is certain that your desire can be fulfilled, for your Earth environment has the potential of satisfying the essence of all desires.—Abraham

  1. Hi Zirah :-) Thanks for the inspiration! :-) <3 That is a really adorable photo of an owl. :-) A few weeks (or a month?) ago, I saw an article in the local news about a snowy owl sighting. When I read the article, I found out the owl was seen just west of Omaha, Nebraska. This was when it was very very cold here. As curious as I am to see a snowy owl, I decided it would be unwise to drive my car the 2 plus hours in the cold to see if I could find him. Some years, the snowy owls come this far south in the winter. There was a sighting of one in Michigan as well. The owl in the photo is well hidden. It reminds me of the importance of paying attention. You never know what you might be missing otherwise! :-) I have noticed that the days are getting longer and I can feel the spring excitement start to grow. I hope you have a joy-filled and inspired week! :-) <3

    1. It’s interesting you should mention a snowy owl because one of my Facebook friends posted something about how they had started a GoFundMe or one of those money raising accts to help care for a snowy owl that had been injured in her area. And, yes, I’m loving that the daylight is getting longer and we’ve even had a reprieve from the arctic-like weather the last couple of days. I know some of the crocus in the neighborhood are sprouting up like they think it is spring, but we still have plenty of cold weather to come, so I hope they don’t literally get nipped in the bud. Wishing you a joy-filled and inspired week, too!

  2. Hi Zirah whenever eme drops in I get a good feeeling and reminds me of my earlier days of connecting with you. Love to you. John.

    1. Oh, sweetie, thanks for saying that. I really haven’t been posting much here at all lately, which is rather obvious, I guess. I will use your comment as inspiration a see about getting something posted in the near future. Love to you and Cheryl!
