Trying to Change My Stinkin' Thinkin'
I Love Eckart Tolle and Byron Katie because they make me use my mind in ways I never thought possible.
Sometimes it actually hurts getting my brain around their concepts. But, after listening to A New Earth, and watching Oprah's podcasts with Eckart, I totally "get" what he is saying.
I started listening to Byron Katie on Saturday, her book/tape - I Need Your Love - is that True? I went out and bought - Loving What Is. Man, I am trying to get all this inside me and start using it before I do or say something stupid to the ones I love.
I am still having so many issues with what I think is right and should happen, for instance how I want my mother to be and not to be, how my husband is such a disappointment and trying my patience to its end, I am frustrated and saddened by the way my daughter and son-in-law are raising my one granddaughter; and saddened that my other son-in-law and daughter are struggling financially.
I am trying sooo hard to make it all good, but it just seems to be getting worse.
I am going away on vacation, I hope that Byron Katie's book and work will help me through. I won't be able to keep so busy that I can ignore my problems with my husband. God help the poor man.
