1. How to find inner peace when being reprimanded or criticized?

No one “likes” to be reprimanded or criticized. But, it’s not the reprimand or criticism that interferes with inner peace; it is the resistance to the criticism that is painful!  So, instead of “resisting,” consider any reprimand or criticism as “feedback.”  Find the 1% (or more) of truth in the words being shared with you. Then, simply say “thank you” to the person for sharing with you. Assure them you sincerely heard them and appreciate them for bringing this to your attention. And, since you found the 1% (or more) of truth in their words; you may even say, “You know, you’re absolutely right.  I see exactly what you mean.” Remember, inner peace disappears with “resistance” not reprimands or criticism.

2. Open and lift the wings of Love! When Love's wings are strong, you need  no ladder... ~ Rumi

3. Work With The ENERGY By Jacob Glass

“. . . but let me remind you that
time and space are under my control.”

A Course in Miracles

Remember that EVERYTHING is about Energy. Humans spend far too much time concerned with manipulating matter, people, conditions and situations than in working with what really matters in all of those – the ENERGY present. Like the proverbial bull in a china shop, you often go charging in crashing up against opposing energies and vibrations because you have not first stopped to TUNE IN – to SENSE and work with the energies that are present. You become too interested in getting your way and making things happen the way YOU think would be best for all concerned.

Remember that the Universe is a friendly system. It wants to work WITH you as a cooperative agent in all situations and circumstances. But you must be willing and patient enough to slow down so that you can become attuned to the energies that are dominating. Then, rather than trying to conquer or push the energies, or manipulate them to your will, you can cooperate and begin to channel those energies through the Wisdom that is REVEALED to you by the Presence within you.

How to do this? RELAX, even if everyone else is whipped into a frenzy around you. If possible, close your eyes, even for an instant and say to the Presence within, “Make good use of me here.” Then LISTEN to REALITY beyond appearances rather than the “story” ABOUT the appearances that the ego is endlessly chattering to you – really LISTEN in the space. And RESPOND to whatever spiritual intution reveals to you. And be willing to keep correcting as you go. Do not get attached to being right or to specific outcomes. BE FLUID, be flexible, be cooperative. Be persistent, but not pushy. Be consistent, but not pedantic.

There is a vast untapped Wisdom within you which awaits your attention and cooperation. Learn to work with the ENERGY rather than the personality and you will find that the doors and windows to  your greater good are opening nearly everywhere you go.

 

Thoughts and Quotes for Today 11.29.12 November 29, 2012

1. A single insight into our Self is more valuable than all our scriptures. A single glimpse of our consciousness and we have entered the Real Temple…

 

2. When “they” attack you and you notice that you Love them with all your heart, your Work is done. ~ Byron Katie

 

3. “The miracle of Love comes to you in the presence of the uninterpreted moment. If you are mentally somewhere else, you miss real life.” ~ Byron Katie

 

4. As long as the mind perceives its Self as whole, it is impossible to see any other as unlovable.

 

5. Reality is changeless – no stories. The humaholic is addicted to temporal experiences. As with most addicts, the humaholic usually must hit rock bottom (total personal devastation) before progress in healing the mind can be made. He must recognize that there is a better way. And from this lowest point, seeing that there is no place else to turn and nothing else that can be done, the humaholic issues an unequivocal call for help. The strength and guidance of the Christ always comes in response to this unequivocal call. Thanks Benny

 

6. Life is an echo. What we send out-comes back….  What we sow-We reap. What we give- We get. What we see in others- We fear exists in ourselves… This is the purpose of our “seeing” on earth… to “see” our false beliefs/concepts/fears, own them and release them to their nothingness for a more Peaceful vision… it’s only when we attach ourselves to our beliefs/fears that we feel stress…

1. Until we have seen someone’s darkness, we don’t really know who they are. Until we have forgiven someone’s darkness, we don’t really know what Love is. ~  Marianne Williamson

 

2. A Miracle is a shift in perception from fear to Love. ~ Marianne Williamson paraphrased from ACIM

 

3.  Peace lets the world expand to more than these mere appearances. Thanks Pamela

 

4. Rekindle the Spirit of Love by Living Life to the FULLEST… (whatever that means for YOU)

 

5. Living each moment with calm mindful awareness and an Open Heart is True Freedom. ~ Tao & Zen

Good Morning Precious One… I will be flying down to Puerto Vallarta, Mx today… New workshops/classes and Retreats are in the planning stages for this coming season… if you are interested in coming down for any of these events or if you wish to join US in any of the online workshops, please send me a message and I will include you in the emails… looking forward to this coming years adventure… Love given and received, Always, Faith

1.  “Wherever you stand, be the Soul of that place.” ~ Rumi

 

2. Most of the wishes and desires that you cherish have fear attached to them – the fear that they will never be fulfilled. Fear is faith in a negative outcome, and if that fear (faith) is strong, then so it shall be. You are the only one that can deprive yourself of anything. Your wishes and desires always have your mind wandering off in the future. What you really want is here and now.

 

3. Gratitude is the appreciation of what IS,  of life, of existence, of anybody and anything,  for just the way It Is . ~ Adyashanti

 

4. “We may be different races and religions but we are all part of the same human family”  ~  Dalai Lama

1. All are graced with innocence, but because you choose to hold onto a personal mind you move out of natural Harmony. Satsong is returning you to your own pure Self. It removes all falseness and leaves your mind in it’s original state- Unborn Awareness. ~ Mooji

 

2. Watch your thoughts: they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny. ~ Lao Tzu

 

3. Everything in your life is there as a vehicle for your transformation. Use it! ~ Ram Dass

 

4. It’s all dreaming. Nothing about it is true or real. But you are still accountable. As long as you still believe there is another, then as you treat or think of another you treat and think of yourself. As long as you still think you are here, you can’t get away from the Golden Rule – what you do unto others you are doing unto yourself.

 

Thoughts and Quotes for Today 11.25.12 November 25, 2012

Filed under: Love — C. Faith Holland @ 4:18 pm

We Affirm: “There is a joyous and fabulous Divine Plan for my life. The purpose of the plan is my peace, happiness and satisfaction in life. My part is to get my arrogance, attachments and insistence on “getting what I want” out of the way so that the plan can reveal itself to me over time. I have no idea what’s good for me or what I need or how to make life happen. So I consider the lilies of the field and the birds of the air, who are gloriously arrayed and cared for without a trace of ambition – whose only focus is on being more of what they already are and allowing Life to handle all the rest.
I hereby humbly resign from interfering with the Divine Plan as I happily walk through the open doors to my greater good – even if my ego thinks it’s a demotion, for there are no small parts in the Divine Drama of life. His eye is even on the sparrow.”

 

2. ACIM:  Attempts to heal others are avoidance strategies. ~ By focusing on others  we escape the only healing there can be– our own. “Others” , or better, the idea of otherness, exists only in the unhealed mind. When it is healed there are no “others”.   Beingness is all-inclusive.   There is no specialness in being, therefore the ego hates it.

 

3.  We can’t do love. We can only BE love.

 

4. Once we heed the call to wake up from the ego thought system we begin to see the world differently.

1. “In every religion there is LOVE … yet LOVE has no religion.” ~Rumi
2. Byron Katie on STAYING IN YOUR OWN BUSINESS… Reality is God, because it rules.I can find only three kinds of business in the universe: mine, yours and God’s. (For me, the word God means “reality.” Reality is God, because it rules. Anything that’s out of my control, your control and everyone else’s control — I call that God’s business.)Much of our stress comes from mentally living out of our own business. When I think, You need to get a job, I want you to be happy, you should be on time, you need to take better care of yourself, I am in your business. When I’m worried about earthquakes, floods, war, or when I will die, I am in God’s business. If I am mentally in your business or in God’s business, the effect is separation. I noticed this early in 1986. When I mentally went into my mother’s business, for example, with a thought like, My mother should understand me, I immediately experienced a feeling of loneliness. And I realized that every time in my life that I had felt hurt or lonely, I had been in someone else’s business.If you are living your life and I am mentally living your life, who is here living mine? We’re both over there. Being mentally in your business keeps me from being present in my own. I am separate from myself, wondering why my life doesn’t work. To think that I know what’s best for anyone else is to be out of my business. Even in the name of love, it is pure arrogance, and the result is tension, anxiety, and fear. Do I know what’s right for myself? That is my only business. Let me work with that before I try to solve your problems for you.
If you understand the three kinds of business enough to stay in your own business, it could free your life in a way that you can’t even imagine. The next time you’re feeling stress or discomfort, ask yourself whose business you’re in mentally, and you may burst out laughing! That question can bring you back to yourself. And you may come to see that you’ve never really been present, that you’ve been mentally living in other people’s business all your life. Just to notice that you’re in someone else’s business can bring you back to your own wonderful self. And if you practice it for a while, you may come to see that you don’t have any business either and that your life runs perfectly well on its own.

1. “There is a fountain inside YOU. Don’t walk around with an empty bucket.” ~ Rumi

 

2.  Happiness is not received or achieved, but simply experienced.

 

3. Every man dies. Not every man really lives. ~  William Wallace

 

4. It’s rather easy to shine in the light but to glow in the dark… that is mastery..!  ~ Rick Beneteau

 

Thoughts and Quotes for Today 11.22.12 November 22, 2012

Filed under: Love — C. Faith Holland @ 1:31 pm

1.  “‘The inspiration you seek is already within you … Be silent .. And listen!” ~Rumi

 

2. Do you honestly think you deserve to be happy? How about today – have you done anything that would give you the right to be happy – has anything happened to make you happy? Have you earned it? None of this nonsense has anything to do with real joy. Joy is your heritage. It is always there, ever associated with that inner radiance. Simply accept what is yours. There is no effort or sacrifice required of you. Be happy!

 

3. “Accept” and “allow.” Good words – worth meditating on. There is a requirement that you step out of the way. Let go of likes, dislikes, judgments, attachments, wishes and concerns. Allowing and accepting anything, everything and even nothing. This is the way the fool steps off of the cliff with perfect trust. This is the way you give up your life – you give up nothing in order to know and claim your heritage of all that is.

 

4. Having another body near by does not necessarily help us to feel less lonely. Loneliness and littleness are the same mistake, born of the idea that you could be separate from Source and all of creation – the strange idea that you are some little thing surrounded by an immense Universe that you can never know, and that will never know you. The loneliness is gone when you realize the all-inclusive magnitude of the reality of you.

 

5. Thank YOU… Natalie Merchant on youtube – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rdG618TMc5E
