Milton Erickson

happiness motivation inspiration dra martha castro

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

happiness motivation inspiration dra martha castro

“The deeper that sorrow carves into your being, the more joy you can contain. Is not the cup that holds your wine the very cup that was burned in the potter’s oven? And is not the lute that soothes your spirit, the very wood that was hollowed with knives?
When you are joyous, look deep into your heart and you shall find it is only that which has given you sorrow that is giving you joy. When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see in truth that you are weeping for that which has been your delight.”

Kahlil Gibran

“Being happy doesn’t mean everything is perfect, means you’ve decided to look beyond the imperfections.

Pursue Happiness: Recognize Your Painful Emotions And Get Rid Of Them

painful emotions dra martha castro noriega tijuana mexico

Instead of ‘turning away’ from pain in avoidance we can learn to gently ‘turn towards’ what we’re experiencing. We can bring a caring open attention towards the wounded parts of ourselves and make wise choices about how to respond to ourselves and to life.

It’s a paradox that we all must understand: It is by turning towards negative emotions that we find relief from them – not by turning away.

Saturday Night For The Free Thinker: Believing In The Unproven God Helps To Be Happy?

I don’t eat peanut butter. I find it repulsive and will go out of my way to not eat things with peanut butter.

god peanut butter dra martha castro mexico

People have often told me that I’m missing out. That food is so much better with peanut butter. “You’ve never had a Reese’s Cup? Or a PB&J? How can you be happy without having had peanut butter?”

The answer is, I’m plenty happy because it’s not important to me. It’s not something I require. I had my taste and quickly realized that I wasn’t missing out at all.

When someone asks “Can you be happy without believing in God?” what they’re really saying is “I don’t think I could be happy without believing in God.”

They’re projecting their feelings about religion onto others. They’re assuming their experiences are the only experiences.

god peanut butter dra martha castro mexico

We all do it to some extent, but it’s important to recognize that just because someone requires god to be happy, that doesn’t mean that others do. I’m actually happier not believing in a god? What if I asked the militant religious: how you could be happy while believing in God?

People might think that’s funny. That it seems obvious how believing in God makes them happier.

god peanut butter dra martha castro mexico

It’s the same for me. Of course I’m happy without believing in a god—and why couldn’t you be?

God is a PB&J and I don’t need either of them to be happy. Well, actually PB&J is real. I just don’t like it.

But that’s just me.
