Basic Psy: Taking Loving Action
    #11267159 - 10/17/09 08:10 PM (8 years, 5 months ago)

Taking Loving Action

Unless we really take loving actions as a loving adult, on our inner child's behalf, nothing will change.
We can tell ourself the truth all day, but if we don't actually change anything then this truth means very little.

Observing ourself choosing the intent to love rather than to control is in itself a loving action.
We cannot love our wounded self unless we first notice it in the first place.

Loving action is taken towards both core and wounded self.
Acceptance of all feelings is primary.
When we are loving to our wounded self then we can heel our false beliefs.

Eventually we will learn not to take other's behaviour personally, and set loving limits on our own behalf.

Examples of Loving Actions

Disengage from another's behaviour and walk away.
Risk doing something you want to do.
Define your own worth and lovability.
Leave a job that you hate.
Try to be grateful throughout the day.
Stay in the present moment.
Be aware of your feelings all the time.

Do we want to lose ourself through addictions, or are we willing to lose someone or something and gain our true self, freedom and selfrespect?
Do we want to lose ourself and avoid pain, or are we willing to face pain and find our true self?
