Ready table one
We cannot focus upon the weaknesses of one another and evoke strengths. You cannot focus upon the things that you think they are doing wrong, and evoke things that will make you feel better. You’ve got to beat the drum that makes you feel good when you beat it. And when you do, you’ll be a strong signal of influence that will help them to reconnect with who whey are.Excerpted from Washington, DC, on 10/16/2004 — Abraham-Hicks
Holy Wow, for how this fits with my newly-discovered awareness of what tolerance really does. I’m learning that although there is room at the table for everyone, it’s always okay to go sit at another table. Now, I am guided to keep my eyes at my table of choice, at the offerings for my own plate.
Because if I’ve removed myself but am still
looking back over at what I chose to excuse myself from, I’m actually still there. Not only am I at that unwanted table, I’m also quite possibly sitting in someone’s lap.
I’m going to remember to fully enjoy my own plate, and not attend to what’s on the other tables. Pass the stuffing, please — yum!
What do you want, to nourish you? Go for more of that.
PS — that last line in the above quote is quite a kicker, and I almost left it out here because it is easily its own full topic. Reconnecting with your own self is indeed a great example for others that helps them to then reconnect with who they are. Just understand that neither that process nor outcome is your responsibility, and that they also may end up happily choosing to stay at the very table they already are at. And that’s okay. Enjoy your own.
