Tolle Tuesday...

It may include occasionally refraining from expressing your opinion when everybody is expressing his or hers, and seeing what that feels like.

This is all about finding peace and losing 'ego.' Sometimes, I have no trouble doing this -- I can hold my tongue and simply let others espouse their ideas (ie, with politics). Other times, if it's a subject where I feel I have something valuable to add, it's hard for me to keep quiet...but the few times I've tried it, I've noticed that, in all honesty, my opinion truly didn't matter that much.

It's something I strive for more and more, I must admit. What do you think? (Ha, ironic on a post like this, no, that I'm asking for your opinion? :D)

Well, nothing wrong with an opinion. It's only when we are attached to them that they can cause some difficulties. But I sure do love hearing your opinions!

Yes, exactly right -- it's that pesky attachment issue...:)

I keep quiet most of the time.

Cute pic of E. Bet that water was COLD!

Wise man ;)

And yeah, the water was a little chilly (though they said it was warmer than the air!)

Hmmm. When I do that certain people walk all over me. I need to be more assertive, not less. (I don't think I'm a Tolle-type person.)

Actually, I'd say you're wise enough to realize what's right for you -- and his advice is more of a general thing :)
