“To be tested is good.  The challenged life may be the best therapist.” —Gail Sheehy

What holds you back from being all that you are?

In your journal, list at least five things that hold you back.  Now review your answers.

Have you blamed people or other factors outside of yourself?

It’s important to understand that ALL obstructions are rooted in our internal blocks.

Even the problems that appear outside of us are only reflecting back to us problems we have inside.  Once we address our inner issues, the outer problems disappear.

Be personally accountable for everything in your life and watch your perspectives shift.  We claim our power when we accept responsibilty for our lives.

“Conscious evolution begins as we take responsibility for clearing our own obstruction.” —Dan Millman

TIP OF THE WEEK: SATSANG   In Sanskrit, satsang is a compound composed of two words, sat and sang.  Sat carries a dual meaning of “truth” and “being”.  Sang is a shortened form of sanga, or sangama, which literally translates as “going (gam) together (san)”.  In relation to the natural world, sangama is the name given to the confluence of rivers.  In relation to spiritual practice, satsang is a group of people who have converged to enjoy the bonds of friendship and combine their energies in a quest for a greater experience in truth.
