Acceptance and Commitment Therapy Rocks my World

The core therapeutic messages of acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) are:

*You are not your thoughts, emotions, memories, roles
*There is a you that is not “thing like” that has been present your whole life
*When something is fearsome, notice who is noticing it
*You are perfectly made to experience your experience
*The contents of your awareness are not bigger than you; you contain them
*You are a safe place from which you can have experiences for what they are

- From "A Practical Guide to Acceptance and Commitment Therapy"

"If the history of humanity were the clinical case history of a single human being, the diagnosis would be: chronic paranoid delusions, a pathological propensity to commit murder and acts of violence and cruelty against his perceived 'enemies'.... Criminally insane, with a few brief lucid intervals."

~Eckhart Tolle
