Healing or Life is Not a Spectator Sport!

Evariste Carpenter

From what I have read, practiced and witnessed, healing does not bless spectators at all.  No matter whose are or how smart we think we are, life can not be lived as a spectator.  Well, not with any substance or happiness.
What is holding you back from committing to 15 minutes a day?  I have heard so many excuses for not taking action.  It doesn’t matter if you have a reason, facts dictate you will not improve.
C-PTSD grows with spectators until agoraphobia enters our space.  Avoidance leads to this end.  Do you avoid unpleasant and only go where you feel safe.  chasing pleasure Ida prescription for disaster.
What scares you from practicing a little focus daily?
As I see it, we suffer if we stay still. The road to suffering and fear..

  1. Most people feel safe in their despair – there is comfort in what you are used to (battered wife syndrome). I’m still practicing and am far from where I will be, but not stuck in the past – moving forward is the most important thing – even if it seems too slow!

    I am so glad that I found your blog as it keeps me on the straight, as find excuses to not practice. Thank you, thank you.

  3. Thank you and letting me know means a lot. This blog has a healing component for me also. I practice everyday, as I practice what I preach. We never arrive, this is a journey. NOt a destination.

    We never give up living trying taking action, ever.
