Comfort

25/11/2014
  • If you look for truth, you may find comfort in the end; if you look for comfort you will not get either comfort or truth only soft soap and wishful thinking to begin, and in the end, despair. ~C. S. Lewis
  • Fear will stop me from pursuing my dreams, and could cause me to give up and give in, keeping me a prisoner in my comfort zone.
  • Life is not about being comfortable. It’s about pressing forward out of my comfort zone. It’s about getting up everyday and accepting whatever challenge I am faced with, staying faithful to the truth and allowing the suffering I endure to be joined with Christ’s to receive grace and complete my sanctification. That’s how we make the most of our life.
  • One day your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure it’s worth watching. ~Unknown
  • Cracking Your Comfort Zone: How to Face a Fear ~Tiny Buddha
  • Really take this in: You become your comfort zone.
  • Doing those things may not feel natural to you. You may even feel uncomfortable and awkward. But ultimately, behind the frightening facade of fear is a bigger version of who you already are. That’s where the fun is.
  • Cracking your comfort zone involves feeling fear and befriending the bastard. Your fear is there for a reason. Respect and embrace it.
  • The best of the best feel fear. So will you.
  • What has and will continue to change my life is my willingness to embrace my fears and use them as fuel to drive me where I know I need to go.
  • Fear is excitement without the breath. When you start to feel fear, the best thing you can do is breathe into it. ~Fritz Perls
  • You’re going to be scared—sometimes shitless. But not only is that okay, it’s great. Instead, use that nervous energy as fuel toward overcoming the real obstacle: your fear.
  • At that moment you’re going to feel alive. The wise will learn to love that feeling. That’s what you coming closer to your dreams feels like.
  • Fear is excitement without the breath. You’re feeling the way you feel because this is important to you and you’re excited about it. It could potentially improve your life.
  • The search for comfort is problematic and avoids learning, experiencing, personal growth and development.
  • Comfort is familiar. No challenges. No learning. No adventure. No new experiences. No stepping out away from your safe home environment. Doldrums. No learning of any sort. Reinforcing habits and ways of being unchallenged. Nothing physical or intellectual or emotionally demanding. No growth.
  • Comfort requires no search if it is part of the dominant culture and endlessly repeated on the mainstream media and further amplified by the mindless repeating of clichés.
  • Rather the search for discomfort than the dominant all pervasive consumption model created by advertising, obsolescence and credit. This enslaves, cripples, indebts people who are powerless to respond.
  • How will you use my remaining days? By living nobly, honourably (with courage, generosity, honour). Don’t deviate from the spiritual path.
