"Out beyond ideas of right-doing and wrong-doing there is a field. I'll meet you there." ----- Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Balkhi-Rumi, 13th century Sufi poet.

"The Secret in healing Narcissism is not to heal it at all, but to listen to it. Narcissism is a signal that the soul is not being loved sufficiently. The greater the Narcissism, the less love being given." ~ Thomas Moore, 'Care of the Soul'.

Re: Possible Promise ( 19:35:33 ThuJan 8 2004 )

My possible promise is to become a non-judgmental person in every sense of the world. I love what TC had to say earlier, and would like to adopt that as a probable promise, because it is an understanding that seems to be etched in to my soul. I see people, and I see myself. I seem to be in tune with what other people feel, and to be uncharacteristically insightful into what they are going through. I once had a professional horoscope analysis done, and it said although this was a precious gift I had been born with, if I did not learn to discern who to practice it with, an establish healthy boundaries, I would experience painful relationships over and over again. Sadly, up unitl now this has been true, but I plan to change that.

In support of my possible promise I would like to share a quote that I carry around with me whereever I go:

EMOTIONALLY MATURE, AUTONOMOUS INDIVIDUALS UNDERSTAND THAT OTHER PEOPLE DO NOT EXIST MERELY TO SATISFY THEIR NEEDS. . .SUCH AN INDIVIDUAL DOES NOT EXPERIENCE HIS OR HER SELF-ESTEEM AS CONTINUALLY IN QUESTION OR IN JEOPARDY. THE SOURCE OF APPROVAL RESIDES WITHIN THE SELF.

Re: Possible Promise ( 23:25:31 WedFeb 18 2004 )

Hello, I'm going to think about what my promise might be. I have never had a problem forgiving anyone for anything (and this by no means makes me a saint), but unfortunately I have the capability of forgetting too. Most of the time I can remember the good things, but for some odd reason not the bad. So I think I doomed myself to repeat certain things over and over. I trust too easily and so can easily be taken advantage. For sometime I believed that if I were not capable of such a thing, then how could anyone else be. Pretty dumb, but certainly does explain a lot, and why I ended up where I am right now.

So after writing this, I believe my promise would be to stop putting things out of my mind, and start re-connecting with my emotions. Probably easier said than done, but I will give it my best effort. Melitta

I must be blind because I've never noticed this thread before. I like that people are so positive. It should e pursued. So I'm curious as to how you guys think you're progressing on your promises?

Hi, I for one am progressing along just fine, and am more aware of my emotions than I have ever been.

Considering that you found the site, do you also have a promise to make?

Great understanding comes with great love.
