Be awakened

marriage personal growth Nov 22, 2018

“This is your life on autopilot: half-awake, frustrated, disconnected from yourself and those around you. Of course you need and want to “be there” for your children, your spouse, and your co-workers, but your inner voice can’t help but cry out, “There has to be a better way!”

How do you get yourself off autopilot so you can really live? It all starts by shifting your focus. The key is to become aware of your feelings, habits, patterns, and general “busyness” so that you can learn to mindfully step outside yourself the moment you notice you’re engaging in your usual autopilot behavior.” Toni Parker, Ph.D.

Honoring News of the Day

The Gwinnett community in Georgia has been mourning the loss of Officer Antwan Toney after he was shot and killed in the line of duty last month.

“Though law enforcement and criminals may be considered opposites, the intrinsic value of a human life transcends those boundaries by far,” the inmates wrote. “Right is right and wrong is wrong. No matter the color uniform.

“It is from this standpoint, in a spirit of gratitude and utmost respect that I submit this letter to honor all police officers, military personnel (sic) and first responders. Your service and sacrifice make the world a better place for all… THANK YOU.

“In tribute to your courage and dedication, we present this communication that may serve to bring healing, restoration and forgiveness to the lives of all affected by the loss of this officer.”  (https://www.goodnewsnetwork.org/inmates-write-letter-of-condolences-to-gwinnett-police-department/)

“Switching off autopilot allows you to see life from a fresh perspective and frees you to make different and more mindful decisions. As you begin making choices in this awakened state, you’ll notice your actions naturally begin to align and become more consistent with your desired outcomes – in your relationship and in your life. Learning to connect from a place of deep presence will enable you to hear what your heart is saying, ultimately empowering you to respond rather than react.” Toni Parker, Ph.D.
