Most of us believe that we have
been betrayed by someone outside of us -
in other words someone has done something to hurt us,
been dishonest or broken a promise made:
some trust in some concept was broken.
Indeed someone may have taken an action
that took only their needs into consideration,
they may have not followed through on a promise made,
and they may have not told you the truth.
But their actions have nothing to do with you
and have everything to do with them.
That's why no one can do anything TO you.
They can take actions that involve you that you may not like -
according to your point of view.
But you are not a victim, no way, no how.
- Sheri Rosenthal

Love like you've never been hurt,

and within knowledge everything is included;
your name, your identity, everything,
because this has been given to you by others -

This will be a crucifixion of the persona, the personality,
and there will be a resurrection of your innocence.
You will become a child again, reborn.

The heart is unpolluted.
- Osho

that I believe they have ever inflicted upon me.

been a player upon the stage of my life.

and they open the doors to you.

and doors will open where you didn't know they were going to be.
If you follow your bliss,
doors will open for you that wouldn't have opened for anyone else.

"respect or esteem that has been earned."
Contemplate that for a moment.

If anything, it is of even more moment to honor yourself.
Those who are successful and happy earn their own
self-respect and self-esteem.

everything that moves us most deeply.
