Centering Meditation

 

#1

“Common core of self - an essential humanity whose nature is peace and whose expression is thought and whose action is unconditional love. When we identify with that inner core, respecting and honoring it in others as well as ourselves, we experience healing in every area of life.”

“Our essential core is peaceful and whole. The work of healing is in peeling away the barriers of fear and past conditioning that keep us unaware of our true nature of wholeness and love.”

#2

commitment is an attitude of curiosity and involvement in whatever is happening… control is the belief that we can influence events, coupled with the willingness to act on that belief rather than be a victim of circumstances… challenge, the belief that life’s changes stimulate personal growth instead of threatening the status quo”

“committed people who believe they are in control and expect situations to be challenging are likely to react to stressful events by increasing their interaction with them- exploring, controlling, and learning from them.”
