It's all about acceptance. Acceptance is the key. If I accept myself and my own experience, knowledge and wisdom, I don't need to argue the toss with someone who I don't agree with.
When I feel tired I tend to use food to perk me up. What's been interesting today is that I've not wanted to eat carbs and have veered towards a more keto style diet. I've just accepted this is how I am and done the best that I can.
Developing the perspective of the observer, rather than getting dragged into a mental argument with myself, has been key in finding and maintaining "the gap". The gap is that space between EGO and CONSCiOUSNESS.

Life is an upward spiral. The trick is to not get caught on the downward motion.
To surrender is to accept and from acceptance, true meaning can present itself.

We forgive others not because they deserve forgiveness but because we deserve peace.
There is no shame in honesty, only dishonesty.
