*Who am I? . . .JOY. LOVE. CREATOR.
*Create from the womb of YOU, not your story.
*Your heart when you are connected to your Creator knows the answer.
*Fill your heart with grace, compassion, understanding and hope.
*Step outside your comfort zone every day. There is little growth in that zone and little comfort in growth.
“No pain that we suffer, no trial that we experience is wasted. It ministers to our education, to the development of such qualities as patience, faith, fortitude and humility. All that we suffer and all that we endure, especially when we endure patiently, builds up our characters, purifies our hearts, expands our souls, and makes us more tender and charitable, more worthy to be called the children of God … and it is through sorrow and suffering, toil and tribulation, that we gain the education that we came here to acquire” Elder Orson F. Whitney (quoted in Spencer W. Kimball, Faith Precedes the Miracle
“Just when all seems to be going right, challenges often come in multiple doses simultaneously. When those trials are not consequences of your disobedience, they are evidence that the Lord feels you are prepared to grow more (see Proverbs 3:11-12) He therefore gives you experiences that stimulate growth, understanding, and compassion which polish you for your everlasting benefit. To get you from where you are to where He wants you to be requires a lot of stretching, and that generally entails discomfort and pain…Your Father in Heaven and His Beloved Son love you perfectly. They would not require you to experience a moment more of difficulty than is absolutely needed for your personal benefit or for that of those you love.”--Elder Richard G. Scott, Trust in the Lord, Ensign, November 1995, 16.
*Heavenly Father already knew this was going to happen.
*If you are afraid/ashamed to see your false self you can't change. Clean it up and move on.
*Be willing to have a God-view of you. That will change things.
*Your false/ego self was your first shot at creation.
*I am free from my story.
*Don't feed woes about past fears for the future.
*When you are in your false self, when you are with certain people, then most likely they are in their own fear-based state.
*Anything you admire in any one else, you already have it. You may just need to cultivate it.
*"I AM" are powerful words. Rather than saying, "I am tired" say "I am FEELING tired."
*If you are in a fear-based state it is WHERE you are, not WHO you are. Ex. I am in Nebraska, not I am Nebraska. This will pass.
*Kathy encouraged us to make a spiritual practice with the above pictured list. You make your own answers in the columns.
