Tolle Inspiration

Posting and sharing these quotes helps inspire me and keep me balanced.I love these quotes from Eckhart Tolle:
"With forgiveness, your victim identity dissolves, and your true power emerges - the power of presence. Instead of blaming the darkness you bring in the light."
"Life is the dancer and you are the dance." 
"You find peace not by rearranging the circumstances of your life, but by realizing who you are at the deepest level." 
"The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but your thoughts about it." 
"Give up defining yourself - to yourself or to others. You won't die. You will come to life. And don't be concerned with how others define you. When they define you, they are limiting themselves, so it's their problem. Whenever you interact with people, don't be there primarily as a function or a role, but as the field of conscious Presence. You can only lose something that you have, but you cannot lose something that you are." 
"Sometimes letting things go is an act of far greater power than defending or hanging on."

"Living up to an image that you have of yourself or that other people have of you is inauthentic living."
"What you react to in others, you strengthen in yourself.
"Wherever you are, be there totally. If you find your here and now intolerable and it makes you unhappy, you have three options: remove yourself from the situation, change it, or accept it totally."
"Accept - then act. Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it. Always work with it, not against it." 
"A genuine relationship is one that is not dominated by the ego with its image-making and self-seeking. In a genuine relationship, there is an outward flow of open, alert attention toward the other person in which there is no wanting whatsoever."

Can you remember these when the \"act\" is actually going on? I don\'t know if I could? I have attempted to forgive all past wounds, the forgetting is the hard part, I mean they fade, however never completely dissappear. (((((hugs)))))

Forgiveness is hard, Lynae. I still remember the acts, but I\'m trying not to be attached to those acts anymore.

I saw this quote about forgiveness, Lynae: To Forgive....Is to release someone from the obligation of who you want them to be and accept who they are.\"

What if you can\'t accept who they are? And, I think you misunderstood my question--do you actually remember the quotes-say when your having an argument w/ one of your kids, of your spouse? Or do you remember them later, and wished you di? Thats what I do.....

\"Forgiving\" for me is taking back my power, to not let the person or the betrayal have control over my joy and happiness. It is work and often not easy, however, I have to make a conscious decision to \"forgive\" for me and not them. I also believe in what \"Goes around, comes around\" and \"Vengeance is mine, says the Lord\". Hugs and best wishes Ladies.
