A Quote by Hugh Prather on love, letting go, fear, responsibility, and forgiveness

I am responsible for what I see.
I can elect to change all thoughts that hurt.
I could see peace instead of THIS.
The past is over - it can touch me not.
This instant is the only time there is.
Today I will judge nothing that occurs.
I am not the victim of the world I see.
I can escape from the world I see by giving up attack thoughts.
I am determined to see things differently.
I am never upset for the reason I think.
Forgiveness is the key to happiness.

All that I give I give to myself.

A Quote by Hugh Prather on argument and god

Sometimes when I generalize, I am saying, 'Let's pretend I am God,' and of course the other person argues that point endlessly. But I notice that if the other person takes a stand for himself and states his thoughts as his thoughts, I pay more attention to what he is saying and look deeper in myself.

It's not that we fear the place of darkness but that we don't think we are worth the effort to find the place of light.

A Quote by Hugh Prather on fear, frustration, good, indecision, needs, present, and words

Fears, indecision, and frustration feed on words. Without words they usually stop. . . . Words are at times good for looking back, but they are confining when I need to act in the present.

A Quote by Hugh Prather on commitment, control, evil, feeling, men, and potential

Within me is the potential to commit every evil act I see being committed by other men, and unless I feel this potential, I can at any moment be controlled by these same urges. I am free from these urges only if I recognize when I am feeling them, and while feeling them and acknowledging them to be me, choose not to follow them. Only in this way can I begin to regain the disowned parts of me. And only in this way can I know what it is I am criticizing in others.

A Quote by Hugh Prather on evolution, words, and world

Most words evolved as a description of the outside world, hence their inadequacy to describe what is going on inside me.
