By now you may be hearing things you don’t like. It is so difficult to accept the truth, but eventually most of it will make sense. For now, just listen without argument–let things settle a little before you discard them.
Even if I don’t agree or accept everything told to me now, rather then outright discard it, let me listen, file away for future reference, and process the information later.
Lighting My Own Lamp
I will learn to light my own lamp today. I will go within for the deepest sort of experience of joy, of ecstasy in being alive. I will get in touch with the deeper pulse of living – the thread that connects me with the divine experience. I will recognize that in order to be lit from within I need to drop down inside of myself and be in the presence of inner light. Life itself has a purpose apart from any individual task or stage. Life itself is the experience. All of the things I have been trying to accomplish are both inner and outer goals. They are meant to bring me closer to myself, to develop me in ways that allow me to experience life more fully – to be more capable of pleasure. Today I will give myself these gifts of inner sight.
I will find and live from my own inner light.

I ask for all things that I might enjoy life, I am given life that I might enjoy all things.
