Before you read this short article, get clear on your goal.
What is it you think you are ready to step up to doing?
Fill in the blank.
"I can ______"
This is a website which includes information on living with illness.
If managing your health is relevant to you, your goal might be one of the following.
"I can take 3 rests each day"
Resting is a challenge for many people!
"I can do the gentle exercise of _____ (name the exercise) 3 times a day"
Exercise is also a challenge for many people! And sometimes when we can't do the exercise of our choice we don't do the exercise we could do.
What can you do? What is your goal? Make sure it is realistic and achievable.
"I can ______"
The motivational poem below deals with a crucial first step in learning anything. You must believe you can do it.
Without this step you either don't start, or you give up pretty quickly.
Imagine what it would be like to have someone standing at your shoulder and every time you thought of doing something new, they said:
"You can't do it."
Is this what you are doing to yourself?
Many of us are.
So, I encourage you to believe "You can do it".
I encourage you to develop a new inner voice that says to you....
"You can do it".
Trying to do something
"You can't, you can't"
is like pushing a rock
up a hill.
Will you turn and face
the other way? –
Allow yourself to believe and say:
"I can, I can".
Allow the gravity of reality to
do the work.
It's OK to make things hard work for someone.
"Say not you cannot learn them. For your power to learn is strong enough to teach you that your will is not your own, your thoughts do not belong to you, and even you are someone else. Who could maintain that lessons such as these are easy? Yet you have learned more than this."
(T-31.I.3, A Course In Miracles)

the PAPERBACK of
Be Loved Beloved
"One thing that struck me was the stripping of ego in the work. Most of us have a comfy ego façade, but weakness and disease tore Katherine’s away. The poems in Be Loved Beloved come from the heart."
