Sayings by Dr. Gerald Jampolsky

#1-2 Wake-Up Calls

1. A truly creative person rids him or herself of all self-imposed limitations.

2. The best way to navigate through life is to give up all of our controls.


3. I cannot forgive myself unless I am willing to forgive others.


4. When I am able to resist the temptation to judge others, I can see them as teachers of forgiveness in my life, reminding me that I can have peace of mind only when I forgive rather than judge.


5. It took a long time for me to recognize that no one could hurt me but myself. It was only my own thoughts and attitudes that were hurtful. Lack of trust and self-deception were my own internal problems, which I projected onto others.


6. Forgiveness means letting go of the past. Unless we forgive others for what we think they have done to us, we will be unable to forgive ourselves and experience peace of mind.


7. Everything we see is but a mirror of what we are.

#8-11 Love is Letting Go of Fear

8. Inner peace can be reached only when we practice forgiveness. Forgiveness is the letting go of the past, and is therefore the means for correcting our misperceptions. [S]

9. To have inner peace and to experience Love, we must be consistent in what we think, say and do. [S]

10. Other people do not have to change for us to experience peace of mind. [S]

11. We really cannot change the external world nor can we change other people. We can change how we perceive the world, how we perceive others, and how we perceive ourselves. [S]

#12-16 Love is Letting Go of Fear

12. …when our mind is peaceful, the world and the people in it appear to us as peaceful. [S]

13. Everything we think, say or do reacts on us like a boomerang. When we send out judgments in the form of criticism, fury or other attack thoughts, they come back to us. When we refrain from making judgments and send out only Love, it comes back to us. [S]

14. Peace of mind comes from not wanting to change others, but by simply accepting them as they are. [S]

15. Releasing the past means not blaming anyone, including ourselves. It means holding no grievances and totally accepting everyone, making no exceptions. [S]

16. …through our willingness to help others we can learn to be happy rather than depressed. [S]

#17-18 Love is Letting Go of Fear

17. Inner peace is experienced as we learn to forgive the world and everyone in it, and thereby see everyone, including ourselves, as blameless. [S]

18. The law of Love is based on abundance; we are completely filled with Love all the time, and our supply is always full and running over. When we give our Love unconditionally to others with no expectations of return, the Love within us extends, expands and joins. So by giving our Love away we increase the Love within us and everyone gains. [S]

#19-21 Teaching Only Love

19. How simple it is to see that we can only be happy now and that there will never be a time when it is not now. [S]

20. There would be very little to dislike in other people if we refused to bring to them all of our own judgments and petty grievances. [S]

21. Forgiveness is the way to true health and happiness. [S]

#22 Love is the Answer

22. It is when judgment ceases that healing occurs. [S]
