Controlling Other People

Karen Casey wrote a great book called, “Change Your Mind and Your Life Will Follow.” Karen had written about recovery for many years for Hazelden. You may have read her meditation book, “Each Day a New Beginning.”

Turns out that Karen studied The Course in Miracles for many years and has also written about the principles of the Course. This book, “Change Your Life…” is an integration of her work on Twelve Step recovery and The Course in Miracles.

One of my favorite take-aways from Karen Casey:

“Abandoning our attempts to control other people is a profound form of personal liberation.”

And this one too:

“Our lives are not, nor were they ever, secure or content as the result of someone else’s actions. Our lives become peaceful and secure in direct proportion to our awareness of the unconditional love of God.”
