This is your time … the few minutes you set aside each day to sit quietly without distractions and simply be. You are not doing this? Then, perhaps you know stress. Does taking a break to be quiet and simply listen reduce stress? If, in doing so, you listen to the repetitive and self-deprecating thoughts that arise, it will. For in so doing, you will come to notice that something beyond the one you are maligning is doing the observing. And from this place of detachment, in time, you will find the part of you that is beyond time and come to truly know you are so very loved.
