Life Hack for Getting Suddenly Awesome: Let People Go That Are Gone

best-books-for-mystics-15

From a story I’m working on:

“Two nights ago Peter went out of town. He came back last night, and we lay in bed for a while talking. He said he really missed me when he was gone, and I said I really missed him, too. Somehow we got on the subject of my not usually missing people after they’re out of my life. I have told him this before. He thinks it’s a method I use to protect myself. And in some ways, it is. I purposely remember the bad about people and not the good. Even when I really try to remember the good about people that are gone, sometimes, I can’t. He told me this makes him feel unsafe with me, like someday I will leave. So then I got to tell him again how much I love him, and that he’s different, because there aren’t any bad things to remember about him if something were to happen to take him away.

But the truth is, I am sure I would think of something. For my own good.”

Inspiration from the other side.

You’ve been on the spiritual path for a good while now. You’ve read the books. Maybe even met a guru or two. Sometimes, though, you need a different kind of inspiration. Inspiration from someone who knows how hard this inner peace stuff really is.

You’re Getting Closer and The Power of Acceptance. Get them for an uplifting price on Amazon.

  1. Interesting, what about people who passed away? My father passed away in Dec of 2008 he was sick for a long time and his sickness made him act in a very mean way at times; however now that he is gone we only remember what a great person he was prior to his illness.

    1. Yeah, I do think in that case, the opposite reaction is perfect! Being sad about loss is fine. It’s just that pining away for somebody who left you and was not a good asset to your life isn’t so fine.
