Wisdom from Matt Kahn

Wisdom from Matt Kahn

What I know to be true is no matter how turbulent the roller coaster of life seems to be, or however many times I swing from one emotional high, to any emotional low, this life is a precious gift of experience I honor and treasure – no matter what form it appears to take.

I know that whatever I know is only a point of view based on a past history of experiences, with every single point of view hiding in the minds of all, being equally unique and valid to their past, as similar or as different as it seems from mine. To only be focused on my individual point of view is to build a belief, that how I see things may be more right than the others around me. This keeps me isolated in my own limited world of opinion, without the opportunity to learn from the brilliance that we’re all here to offer.

I know from the lessons of past experiences, whenever I remained lost in my own view point, I’d have to ignore every other possibility in the entire Universe, just to keep my limiting opinion in focus.

I could either choose to be right and ignore the entire world around me, or I could choose to be in peace, and invite the world into this opening heart of mine, that only wants to be loved, appreciated, and free from the burden of needing to decide if anyone, including myself, is acting right or wrong….Continue reading at

Thanks so much, very interesting internal process. If we really observe our reactions, we'll be surprised of ourselves and understand how much more love there is still to develop, because no matter how much we give , it is never enough....important is not to give up and kkep on trying.

I have been dealing with severe depression lately. Feeling incompetant on a new job, cold weather heating $$$, loneliness, rejection from dating sites that want younger women.Isolation and self hate for being "differant", fearful of the political conservative backlash on the media. Yes, we can?? Yes, CAN I?? Every day a struggle.
I grasp at straws to stay emotionally afloat.
I did come across this message that may be helpful to others who are dealing with these issues;

from Breathmach's "Simple Abundance" -Today realize that Spirit has no hands, head, or heart like yours. No other woman/man on earth can do what you alone are called to do, can give to the world what you alone were sent to give through your authentic gifts. The call may be so faint you can barely make out the message, but if you listen you will hear it.

thanks Matt

from Yogananda on this topic i think:

"To overcome anger, learn to remain inwardly calm and non-attached. Accept with an unruffled mind whatever comes. I often say, “What comes of itself, let it come.” This is just as true for the bad things in life as the good. Calmness alone will give you a sense of correct proportion and inspire you to behave with unfailing good sense."
