This passage is from Debbie Ford’s The Dark Side Of The Light Chasers:
“The strength to look clearly at your past and take back aspects of yourself that you’ve given away lies within you. All you have to do is close your eyes, go within, and ask. The power you need is there, but it will only come out when your desire to change your life is stronger than your desire to stay the same. It’s always easier to blame others for the condition of our lives. When we lose touch with ourselves we lose touch with our divinity, and because we don’t trust ourselves we come to believe that other people can’t be trusted. For some people the pain of the past is so great they believe the only way they can cope with it is to blame and deny. You must embrace your past if you want to change your present. If you want to manifest your desires you must be accountable for everything that takes place in your world.”
I know. I know. It’s scary and hard and exhausting and… but think of how great it must be to be at peace within yourself.
