A Message From The Creator

“People have a hard time letting go of their suffering. Out of a fear of the unknown, they prefer suffering that is familiar.” 
― Thich Nhat Hanh

  1. Ahhh The, at times, unfortunate comfort of the familiar!

    • Yes, we do that. Sometimes we can’t leave bad relationships because they are familiar. We are human beings and we have to learn how to do what is best for us. It takes time.

      • So true… We hurt ourselves more by holding on to such familiar but uncomfortable relationship… Letting go and facing life anew takes so much energy, strength and time… I really love your daily messages from the creator… It makes my day like the tender whisper of a long-lost friend 🙂

      • You are so sweet. That just made my day!! Thank you so much. Have a wonderful day.

    I dont know what is going on, but fear is a theme that is all around me lately, actually I reblogged a post this morning about it, but I will say this fear is something we should embrace, because it tells us something is wrong, and knowing is 1/2 the battle

    Or… is it suffering that makes us feel alive, that we have such trouble letting go of it? I know it’s only in the wake of suffering that I realize how human I am.

  6. “…accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.” (Declaration of Independence) Just saying…it seemed a familiar…
