PONDER on THIS for Thursday, June 13th, 2013 by Terry Cole-Whittaker in LIVE YOUR BLISS

“Self-alienation is the root of our suffering and frustration in a relationship. Believing there is something wrong with us distorts our perception of our divine character. From this distortion springs aberrant mental and emotional states that result in cruel and pathetic behavior. Fanatically trying to be perfect and acceptable by the standards that others have set for us – so that we will be loved, adored, and taken care of – makes us neurotic, even psychotic, when it becomes too much for us to bear and our true self feels completely repressed.

A sign of self-alienation is that, instead of expressing our innate beauty and divine characteristics by doing what we want and living in a way that supports our spiritual and creative evolution and development, we endeavor to become happy and prosperous by molding ourselves into someone we are not.”

Terry Cole-Whittaker, in “Live Your Bliss”
