You are...

Even the most intense experience is only an experience 
you are having. It is not you, and you are not it.You are more than your problems, more than your
 possessions, more than the pains and pleasures. You 
are more than the frustrations that sometimes feel so
 overwhelming. 

 Too often, out of fear, you cling tightly to things 
that don't really matter. Imagine the freedom that can
 come from letting go and stepping back. 

What if your most agonizing worries no longer had the
power to worry you? What if your most burdensome
 difficulties no longer had the power to trouble you? 

Step back from them, and it is all possible. It's not 
a matter of running away, but of putting the world in 
perspective. 

 The real person you are, is not defined or limited by 
the passing circumstances, no matter how intense they 
may be. Always remember that you are more.

timing is... every thing. sometimes you hear a voice inside of you. sometimes you know what the voice is saying is true but you ignore it. somewhere inside of each of us, we know what is truth and what is the best thing for us. negative experiences, both substantial and subtle, create fear. fear blocks. sometimes like, right know, you need to hear what you already know come from elsewhere like from out of the blue, and smack you. or as in this case, find you freely and from a good place. thanx.

This is very true. . . . You should apply this to the " White Priviledge " issue . If only people knew how to use the " Power of Attraction " in there lives . This world would probably be a lot happier.
