Self-Love, World-Love, and Mantras to remind me I need Both!
With a mind riddled with anxiety, ADHD, and curiosity, I need some help staying grounded. Before I spin into a whirlwind of thoughts that occupy my constantly, I turn to these self-clarifying phrases. With a deep breath, repetition, and an increased awareness, they quickly help me to gain control of my chaotic environment.

"This is an opportunity for compassion."
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Crazy, selfish people drive me insane. But instead of letting them ruin my day, I try to empathize with their experience. Likewise, I can be crazy and selfish, forgetting that I'm not the only one suffering. Reminding myself that every moment is an opportunity for compassion reminds me to love--even when it feels most difficult. These experiences are not ways for life to drag me down, but ways for me to practice my strength.

"Her success is not your failure."
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
When someone achieves something amazing or presents some talent they have, I feel threatened. As if their success means I can never succeed. This short mantra reminds me to affirm and praise others, while still having faith in myself.

"‘He is not a product of your fantasy or an affirmation of you confidence”. 
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The people surrounding me are human beings. They are not energy for me to take from to feel better about myself. I don't need someone to tell me I'm good and worthy to know that I am. 
![12196053_1161707213843525_4529159459779356124_n.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmUmF2svc6xAUW4J1kRCJVzYBNTHDeZkELaoa65Ese3xDv/12196053_1161707213843525_4529159459779356124_n.jpg)

Say "thank you" not "sorry". 
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Gratitude goes farther than apologies. Sorry belittles my self and makes me look incompetent. When I say, "Sorry I'm late!", it affirms to the other person that I disrespected them. "Thank you for your patience" respects the other person and myself, which is infinitely more productive than an unrepentant-able apology.

Cultivate the Ground. 
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
In the Christian parable of the fig tree, the gardener asks the master for one more year to cultivate the fig tree so it would bear fruit. Sometimes, it's not the fig tree that is the problem, but the ground around it.

Follow your Bliss!
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Joseph Campbell, my all time favorite man (and philosopher) on this earth said, “If you do follow your bliss you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living. Follow your bliss and don't be afraid, and doors will open where you didn't know they were going to be.”  I should invest myself in the experiences that make me feel centered and full of bliss. When I feel one with all things, I know I'm doing the right thing. 

![10945553_1017139488300299_5415116144514361954_n.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmRxw9wF9bBdfwiJgSunGCcCemML5SRVZ9SeKzsqEx6BSE/10945553_1017139488300299_5415116144514361954_n.jpg)

These mantras remind me of some of my faults and serve as helpful hints to remind me. They're almost like little hyperlinks in my mind that outline my standards I hold myself to. And then, when you click on these mental hyperlinks, they expand to something deeper and much more meaningful. 

Please comment any thoughts, suggestions, or information you may have regarding my post. And if you're liking what you see, check out my profile. You could even <a href="https://steemit.com/@zugzwang34/" target="_blank">follow me</a> for more insights into my curious mind. :)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 In fact a lot of these mantras relate to my previous post about  <a href="https://steemit.com/psychology/@zugzwang34/the-faces-in-the-mirror-the-psychology-of-violence/" target="_blank">psychology of violence</a>..check it out if you're ready for a hearty read.

Sounds to me like a mind prime for getting a knowledge bomb downloaded from source consciousness.  Get ready for some life changing shit.  <3
