Gerald G. Jampolsky wonders...

"Peace of mind comes from not wanting to change others."

Listen to my thoughts about Gerald G. Jampolsky's inspirational quote in the video below. You'll also discover a bit more about where I live in West Yorkshire (England!) - yep, it's my garden in the video again. Ooh, I love it there, I do...


What I Wonder...




(NOTE: Yes, I wrote any captions you see in this video. It's called self-deprecation, and it's mostly a healthy thing (I think!).)


So, as I said in the video, this is a powerful inspirational quote IF we can truly embrace it in our lives.

This is NOT easy, though. Much easier to find fault, to point the finger, and to consider someone's (bad) actions as something we would never do.

And whether we would never do such a bad thing - and we would, if we were able to truly see ourselves, and not just our justifications for our behaviour sometime - or not, it isn't really important.

As I say in the video, nobody is perfect.

Okay, nobody is perfect. What does that mean, then? Well, it means that people - including you - are going to make mistakes, are going to get things wrong, are not going to give of their best.

OR, just as important, people are very liable to do things differently to you.

And you can either accept that just as nobody is perfect so it's also true that everybody is different.

And then... Well, then imagine living in a world where everyone is different but you want to make them all like you. What a life of suffering would be in store for you!

Much better to understand (and embrace) Gerald G Jampolsky's words, I think. How about you? What do you think to this inspirational quote? Would love to find out.

Oh, and before I go, here's a link to my review of Gerald's fantastic book called Love is Letting Go of Fear

Thanks for reading,
Steve

I learned early on it cannot be the 'other person' who needs to change but myself. Being married most of my life the marriage has been a very stressful one. To say difficult would be an understatement. I never attempted to change him but would always try my best to change me.

Recently I realized the more I thought I needed, had to change in order for my husband to accept me, the more I've realized God didn't do what I was asking Him to do in me for this purpose, but but how HE wanted me to be. He gave me strength and courage, hope to face each new day with all it's challenges. I didn't and haven't succeeded greatly but I've always tried. Change is hard. When life seems written in concrete one way it's difficult to chisel through the stone for a new way to live and look at life.
