I watched the Oprah show “Spirituality 101” today and took down some highlights:

crisis means crossroads

in every crisis there is the end of the world as we’ve known it

it is a threshold for something much bigger in your life than you’ve ever imagined

let the old die because the new is going to be even better than you can imagine

if this situation were to last for a long time what quality would you have to birth to have peace of mind

That last one is my favorite: if this situation were to last for a long time what quality would you have to *birth* to have peace of mind?  It shifts the focus from what is to what can be, from pain to possibilities.  And if it’s a given, as Abraham says, that contrast propels expansion – then who must I now become?  Who will I be – who will now emerge out of this contrast?  It’s not something that can be answered at the level of the mind or figuring it out.  Somewhere in the spaces of stillness perhaps the answer lies.

Love, Bethie
