"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.

"Have faith that people do their best. I don't know anyone who would eat with pigs out of a trough in a muddy barnyard if he knew that a well-prepared meal was on the table in a clean house - do you?" Greg Baer

"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'.

I've been reading some old Masterson books and I think I might go see him this summer. It could be an interesting visit :wink:

I was lurking around a local store and found a deck of "healing cards". At first I thought they were kind of corny playing cards with simple messages on the other side rather than a design. And than I started reading the messages and I felt they were written for this community. I'll share one now and maybe more later as the mood hits me:

Love:

I manifest love in my life in many ways.

With love all things are possible. Love is the great healer, replacing confusion, doubt, and fear with faith in others and oneself. Show your love freely to others and feel their love in return.

I watched some of Rush Hour 2.

Jackie Chan: Do you understandddd the words that are comin' outta my mouth?

Chris Tucker: Don't nobody understand the words that are comin' outta yo mouth.


Hehehe.... later,

Thanks for the giggle Matt.

I'm going to get a new 'do for summer (hairdo that is) I told my hairdresser she has full reign on whatever color she decides to take me. I've always wanted to try blonde...

Counseling with our marriage counselor today was hard. My husband had given me the impression that he wanted us to transition into divorce counseling with our marriage counselor, and perhaps so me help with mediation. What happened instead was an hour of my husband crying and the counselor and I trying to make him feel better. When he realized it wasn't changing my mind, my husband decided to terminate the relationship with our marriage counselor. Why a positive? Because I was able to see it all clearly and stay both compassionate and detached. But man was it hard work!

Had another long talk with my tennis coach. We're both still in the same place, unsatisfied and unable to find meaning in life. It's frustrating, but good to talk to someone else who is struggling with the same issues.

Take care,

Matt

I was talking today to someone who did not know that my husband and I were no longer together. Instead of giving my usual spiteful "He left me..." I simply said "we split up". No blame, no anger. A big step for me I think.

Weekends are great!

Congrats friendly!

Mel

I had another long talk with my other tennis coach. He's a much more happy guy, although of course not a better person, than my other coach. It actually made me a little depressed because I realized how much I've been missing out on. I guess that's incentive for me though.

Take care,

Matt

Congrats to Friendly and Mel. Well done in both cases.

I received a very long private message from someone who apparently believes I'm evil for creating this community and encouraging people to see the dreaded "N's" as human. There was a time when such a message would have upset me. Today I smile and hope this person receives the help they need.

Well done, Tony. That's really good.

My therapist and I actually talked a little today about viewing SV as someone to be pitied, rather than hated. Hopefully I will eventually be able to have empathy for him rather than pure repulsion based on what he wrote. It definitely makes me feel better about myself when I get to the former.

Take care,

Matt
