The only time I failed was when I blamed someone else
Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom. ~ Victor Frankl
A tree can not grow to heaven unless its roots grow to hell. ~ C.G. Jung
Be your own best ally. That way, when you are your own enemy, it’s one less step to take as you’ve already kept your enemies closer. You see, enemies don’t betray you. They can’t, because they are enemies. Betrayal comes from those close to you. So… when you see the waters of the people close to you, or yourself, parting… incoming! Just smile and turn right into it. Surprise! The wits and will of not being surprised at a surprise attack often act as a sea wall for that water to crash on… and flow back out. Then, you can address it… on YOUR terms, hearing theirs. The Royal We is and is not a misnomer. There can only be one mouthpiece. Do you take responsibility for yours? ~ (C) 2019 Jordan Hoggard

Avoid Inner Civil Wars by Facing Inner Beasties
A great attitude is great. Though, if you are all love and light, I bet when you are crossed you are a vicious and gnashing rodent due to your own internal imbalance that triggers and lashes out? Is that punitive or accusatory, or just accurate? Isn’t triggered reaction just that? Heck, can you say Thank You inside and know that YOU have something to address? Doesn’t that give new meaning to Don’t kill the messenger? Seems to me that it sure does. Even Don’t kill the messenger becomes a one-liner, single tenet of how to psychologically interact in a way beneficial to self and other. Hmmmm, I think I’ll give it a go. (can) You?
Chthonic Numinosity = Self. You Gotta Marry the Dark with the Light. Common… it’s FUN! Well, that’s not the word for it, though isn’t it rewarding? Silence is as valuable as being able to go to 11
The Dark and Light in balance, equals (wonderful) Self. I laugh that when I first thought that, I laughed so hard I almost fell off my Unicorn. 😉
