Byron Katie Quotes About RunningQuotes about: Running
I've heard people say that they cling to their painful thoughts
because they're afraid that without them they wouldn't be activists for peace.
“If I feel peaceful,” they say, “why would I bother taking action at all?”
My answer is “Because that's what love does.”
To think that we need sadness or outrage
to motivate us to do what's right is insane.
As if the clearer and happier you get, the less kind you become.
As if when someone finds freedom, she just sits around all day
with drool running down her chin.
My experience is the opposite.
Love is action.
When people are talking about manifesting, we can say, "I want a car, I want a car, I want a car," but if the mind is running, "I don't deserve it, I'll never be able to afford it, I'll never be a success" - if all those things are running - then those things are what we're really manifesting. They are exactly what's running our life. And as long as we believe those thoughts, thinking positively is not strong enough to override our negative beliefs.
