"It isn't the things that are happening to us that cause us to suffer, it's what we say to ourselves about the things that are happening."
"The truth you believe and cling to makes you unavailable to hear anything new."
It's not that I'm suffering.
It's more that this bit of wisdom brought to light, yet again, the knowing that we make our own truth. We attach our own meaning. We develop our own stories. And we can swear by them...or we can release them and be truly free. Liberating, in a way. And terrifying. Because if we let our stories go; the things that bind us and restrict us; the framework through which we look upon the world...if we let it go and see things without the warping of that lens...well then, what might that look like?
