Waking Up to Live Fully and Passionately | Tiny Buddha

Waking Up to Live Fully and Passionately | Tiny Buddha | ISO Mental Health & Wellness | Scoop.it

“It is not uncommon for people to spend their whole life waiting to start living.” ~Eckhart Tolle

 

Have you ever hit the snooze button? I’m guessing you have at least once. And when you hit it— if you were awake enough to even think about it—you were probably happy knowing that you’d be getting a few more minutes of sleep, right?

 

You may have been dreaming a really great dream or were super comfortable in your bed, and you just weren’t ready to wake up. Maybe you had a hard time getting to sleep the night before or you just didn’t get enough sleep.

 

In any case, waking up would be painful, right? So it makes perfect sense that you wanted to put off feeling that pain....

My Ego Likes To Snowball: Five telltale signs that your ego is hurting you | ISO Mental Health & Wellness | Scoop.it

The Well Thought-Out Life: Octomom, Co-dependancy, and Intentional Love - M. Scott Peck

The Well Thought-Out Life: Octomom, Co-dependancy, and Intentional Love - M. Scott Peck | ISO Mental Health & Wellness | Scoop.it

Peck has a chapter on "Cathexis Without Love".

Peck compares this to military men with war brides that couldn't speak English. "When their brides learned English, the marriages began to fall apart.
