What can we control? We can control how we treat ourselves and others. We can control our own intent to be loving or unloving, open or closed, learning or protected, surrendered or controlling. What can't we control? We can't control others' feelings, behavior and the outcome of things. Today, notice what you do have control over and what you only have influence only, and how you feel when you try to control that which you can't control.

"Coming to this Intensive has opened a huge awareness of how I have been abandoning myself by being a caretaker to control others. I have gently been led to my inner child and have given myself permission to cherish her with the support of her loving guidance." Colorado Intensive, 7/07
"This is truly core work in the emotional-psychological realm. It has taken me to new insights and new vistas at many, many levels. The domain of spirit is so beautifully married to the 'family of origin self' in Margaret's work. [She was] magnificent, thorough, well informed."

'The experience was wonderful. I have been practicing Inner Bonding for several months, and the workshop has deepened that practice immensely. While some growth is not easy, sometimes quite painful, I feel the process truly working to heal as much of what I was unable to face before. Thank you.' LA Workshop, 3.7.10
The most outstanding moment for me in the intensive was when I saw [a member of the intensive] as a one and a half year old, isolated from family and all that was familiar, faced with the decision of whether to live or die. And she chose life. As I understood the majesty of her decision, deep respect for her poured into me and filled me to overflowing. I was awed and honored to be in her presence.
I had similar moments with many of the others in the group. I believe that it is from that position of deep respect for a person that I can actually be a conductor of love and light from God to his child. I want to do that.
Today is Sunday, our Sabbath. We are fasting today, and I was reading in Isaiah:
Is not this the fast that I have chosen? To loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?
Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou seest the naked that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thy own flesh?...
And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as the noonday:
And the Lord shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not.
...and thou shalt be called , The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in.' (Isaiah 58:6-7, 10-12 King James Version)
So, Margie, that is my name for you : Margie -The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in. I think it is a beautiful name that fits you well.
I love the new path that I dwell in. There is more light here. Thank you for the true reflection of who I am. I remember the look on your face when you told me about meeting me for the first time. It has been a great source of peace and comfort to me. Thank you."
"I am so thankful for having the opportunity to experience this intensive. I want everyone I love to go and experience it. I've never been exposed to a group that was so supportive, loving and nonjudgmental. No where in the world can you find a more empowering process." Couples Intensive, Lucerne Valley, CA - 8/01
"I really can't say enough of how much of me I am taking home. (My little one)" Colorado Intensive, 8/08
