In every moment I have a choice. I can re-act compelled by my programming (judgment, criticism, blame, taking things personally) OR I can choose to ACT IMPELLED (moved from within myself) by what is important to me (my needs, values and preferences). I believe, and have both experienced and witnessed in others, that everything we think, do and say is an attempt to attend to our needs (the Life Energy within us). This perspective invites me to empathy and compassion for myself and others, and I enjoy my life more, have more ease and sense of harmony within.
