Tag Archives: Control

books are the most patient of teachers

There are many wonderful things that come to those who wait, but so many involve others or are vastly out of our control.

A Great Love

A Better Job

Grief

Healing relationships with our Family

Health and Well-Being

Children and Grandchildren

A Computer

But, if a book is satisfying to me, I will wait until I get to the marvelous ending. If it does not appeal to me in some emotional or intellectual way, then reading six pages is too much and I know that I will never complete it.

Reading is the activity that does not demand anyone else’s permission to bring you to an enjoyable conclusion in the amount of time that you choose to wait willingly.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope that you enjoy your visit. I am busy re-reading the “Outlander” series by Diana Gabaldon right now.

“Give up defining yourself – to yourself or to others. You won’t die. You will come to life. And don’t be concerned with how others define you. When they define you, they are limiting themselves, so it’s their problem. Whenever you interact with people, don’t be there primarily as a function or a role, but as the field of conscious Presence. You can only lose something that you have, but you cannot lose something that you are.”

― Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose
