Are You Addicted to Comfort?

Thursday, July 15th, 2010

“Your playing small does not serve the world.”
Marianne Williamson

In the book A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of “A Course in Miracles”, Marianne Williamson writes, “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.” Where in your life could you shine your light more? Where are you playing small in the world?

In other words, we can get too comfortable in our day to day activities and allow our fears to get in the way of stepping into our lives more fully. When we think about shining more brightly in the world, we might hear the voice that says, “It’s too hard”, “I can’t”, “Now isn’t a good time for making a change”, “I wouldn’t know where to start”, or “Maybe when the economy gets better.” All of these are the voices of fear that often stop us from living from our heart. Taking a chance on doing something new can seem frightening and consequently we stay in the same place – even if it makes us unhappy.

Staying in the same place, the same job, the same anything even it makes you feel unhappy is what Lisa Haisha refers to as “Comfort Addiction.” In her article, Overcome Your Comfort Addiction, she explains that many people suffer from the addiction of staying in their comfort level even when they feel discontented. It’s the experience of being comfortable in areas of your life that are uncomfortable. We stay at jobs because it is easier than leaving. We don’t start our own companies because we are to scared to risk the security of scheduled work in an office every day. We stay in an unhappy marriage or relationship because we think that’s easier than being alone and starting over.

What would you be doing if you were not playing small? Are you willing to look at your current reality and see where you are and envision where you want to be? Maybe being uncomfortable will give you exactly what you need to create the life, the career, and the changes you have been thinking about.

Create space for what you LOVE to do, rather than fill space with what you are comfortable doing.

Take just one step today and see where it leads you.

My Favorite Books in 2009

Tuesday, December 15th, 2009

IMG_0214

As an avid reader, I search out books that will broaden my thinking, open my heart, teach new ideas, and provide inspiration. I have put together my list of the best books I have read in 2009 (many of which were not published in 2009). Rather than give a synopsis of each book, I am including the book title, author, and a quote that moved me or inspired me. Hope you enjoy. Please feel free to recommend books you think I ought to add to my 2010 list.

(PS I will be sharing some of my best inspired lessons, insights, & meditations of 2009 in an upcoming blog~ stay tuned!)


My Favorite Books of 2009:

My Stoke of Insight by Jill Bolte Taylor
“By paying attention to the choices my automatic circuitry is making, I own my power and make more choices consciously. In the long run, I take responsibility for what I attract in my life.”

A Whole New Mind by Daniel H. Pink
“Design. Story. Symphony. Empathy. Play. Meaning. These six senses increasingly will guide our lives and shape our world.”

The Soul of Money by Lynn Twist
“Reciprocity allows us to acknowledge each other in appreciation of our unique gifts. Reciprocity is like the breath we breathe in – no more than we need.”

Radical Forgiveness by Colin C. Tipping
“We recognize that Divine Love operates in every situation and that each person receives exactly what they want.”

Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strought (this is the only fiction book on the list)
“Don’t be scared of your hunger. If you’re scared of your hunger, you’ll be one more ninny like everyone else.”

I Need Your Love – Is That True? by Byron Katie
“Your most intimate relationship is the one you have with your thoughts.”

Who Would You Be Without Your Story? by Byron Katie (Yes, she is that good!)
“I have come to see that this mind is seeking a place to rest. It’s seeking peace.”

A Return to Love by Marianne Williamson
“Love in your mind produces love in your life.”

Who’s Got Your Back by Keith Ferrazzi
“Each of us is responsible for creating the safe place. It is a conscious choice that we make to create the environment that invites others in.”

The Horse Boy by Rupert Isaacson
“To “cure” him, in terms of trying to tear the autism out, now seems to me completely wrong. Why can’t he exist between the worlds, with a foot in both, as many neurotypical people do?”

Happy reading! Mary Anne

Forgiving – Radically & Peacefully

Thursday, November 5th, 2009

ForgivenessIn one of my meditations this year I wrote the following: “How is not forgiving showing up in your body, your mind, and your relationships? Forgiveness is a means whereby ALL experiences and relationships happen FOR us. Forgiveness is the freedom of peace and the peace of freedom.”

Earlier this year I read Colin C. Tipping’s book, Radical Forgiveness – Making Room for the Miracle, and experienced a ‘radical’ way of looking at forgiveness. I contemplated the concept that everything happens FOR me and not TO me. I began to stop playing small, playing the victim, and began appreciating people for what they could teach me. As I became more open and available to life’s lessons, I was able to see relationship patterns and how I was responsible for all of them. Suddenly, I experienced an inner peace like never before. I was showing up in relationships with family and friends in peaceful ways. More of my relationships began to expand.

I began to deeply listen to shamanic and coaching clients I was working with and their struggle to forgive themselves and others in their life. Clients expressed how they were clinging on for dear life for an apology or to their anger over a situation. With this in mind, I asked how willing they were to look at forgiveness in a new and radical way. I invited clients to imagine all the energy it was taking to hold on tightly to the anger and hurt and instead imagine this space being used to create more joy, more peace, and more love. Upon reflection I have come to discover that forgiveness is a journey, a process, and a resting – of getting to a place within and just resting. As part of this journey, I have read some profound thoughts on forgiveness from many teachers. These quotes have helped me make room for more love and I am hoping they might do the same for you.

“Forgiveness does not mean that we suppress anger; forgiveness means that we have asked for a miracle:  the ability to see through mistakes that someone has made to the truth that lies in all of our hearts. Forgiveness is not always easy. At times, it feels more painful than the wound we suffered, to forgive the one that inflicted it. And yet, there is no peace without forgiveness. Attack thoughts towards others are attack thoughts towards ourselves. The first step in forgiveness is the willingness to forgive.”  Marianne Williamson

“Forgiveness is not an occasional act. It is a permanent attitude.”  Martin Luther King

“I could see peace instead of this.”  A Course in Miracles

“Forgiveness is realizing that what you thought happened, didn’t”  Byron Katie

Are you open to making space for more love, more peace, and more freedom? As Mother Theresa says, “If you judge people, you have no time to love them.”

If you are open to making yourself available to a radical way of looking at forgiveness, join me for an upcoming 4-week telecourse, “Resting in Radical Forgiveness”, starting Wednesday, November 18, 2009. For information & to register:  http://www.toningtheom.com/upcoming-events/#resting

“Forgiveness is the freedom of peace and the peace of freedom.”

Peace, Mary Anne
