Transforming the feeling of being a victim . . .

"We can consider the encounter as a gift.  If we didn't have a wound that wasn't already there, we wouldn't have taken it personally.  Real strength is born of humility, having the courage to admit when we are bothered. We have a choice, we can choose to be less because of that experience or to be more because of it." - Dr. Trish Whynot

“What impressed me about Dr. Trish Whynot was her ability to see through the chaos of life’s web and identify the root cause of any problem. She has the natural ability to see past the smoke screen of drama, chaos and emotion and recognize the true origin of our physical, mental, social and even financial issues.” - Bob Olson

For him who has conquered the mind, the mind is the best of friends; but for one who has failed to do so, his mind will remain the greatest enemy. . .

Doubts and fears should be rigorously excluded; they are disintegrating elements which break up the straight line of effort, rendering it crooked, ineffectual, useless.  Thoughts of doubt and fear never accomplished anything and Never can.  They always lead to failure.  Purpose, energy, power-to-do, and all strong thoughts cease when doubt and fear creep in.

"On Earth everyone yearns for happiness, but do they know what real happiness is?  No.  People on Earth think happiness means a lot of money, comfort, luxuries, fun and fame.  We are sorry to say that these things do not bring real happiness. Real happiness comes from true love, nature's beauty, genuine laughter and smiles, helping others selflessly, and purifying your soul to achieve a higher level."
