1. “Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.” ~ Buddha

 

2. What do you value? What is important to you? Where do you look to find your happiness? Simply take an honest look at what you do with your spare time and energy. (Think about what you are thinking about) That is what is important to you. That is where you look to find happiness. What you do attests to what you believe. Actions speak louder than words. What is important to you? Is what you do in alignment with what you say?

 

3. Ever look around at all the stuff you have and feel empty? Go to shows that used to thrill you and feel flat? Throw party or go to parties and end up feeling blue? Hook up with the hot guy or girl and feel meh? Good! That is our Soul/Spirit calling us IN deeper… to the Truth of our ever-expanding, never-boring, ecstatic Self. We can have all the pretty toys and tricks, pony shows and kicks our little egoic mind desires and it will never quench the thirst of the Soul’s longing to remember itself. Often, in this culture, we run to a doctor, a catalog, or another stimulant looking for that next high or low when each of us carry a whole natural pharmacy of healing remedies inside. When we stop chasing the external, sit still and quiet long enough, and are sincere enough in our desire… eventually, we will hear the voice of our own broken heart calling us back home again to our original Self, the Self that needs nothing outside to feel happy, grateful or alive. Sit. Weep. Pray ♥ You, of all people, deserve your own pure and holy/Wholly Love

 

4. “Children perceive terrifying ghosts and monsters and dragons, and they are terrified. but if they ask someone they trust for the REAL meaning of what they perceive, and are willing to LET THEIR INTERPRETATIONS GO in favor of Reality, their fear goes with them. When a child is helped to translate his “ghost” into a curtain, his “monster” into a shadow, and his “dragon” into a dream, he is no longer afraid, and laughs happily at his own fear. You, my children, are afraid of your Brothers, and of your Father, and of yourselves. But you are merely deceived in them. 

Ask what they are of the Teacher of Reality, and hearing His answer, you too will laugh at your fears and replace them with Peace. For fear lies not in Reality, but in the minds of children who do not understand reality. It is only their lack of understanding that frightens them, and when they learn to perceive truly they are not afraid.” ~ Foundation for Inner Peace…

1. No one saves us but ourselves. No one can. And no one may. We ourselves must walk the Path.  ~ Buddha

2. Nobody is responsible for your own sadness except for you. Nobody is responsible for your fear except you. You are the only person responsible for any and all of your emotions… positive, negative, and everything in between….

Taking 100% responsibility for my emotional journey means being willing NOT to shift shame, blame and guilt onto the world I see… and OWN my own emotions that are coming UP for me in the moment… IF I blame it on circumstances, or on what YOU are doing, I will MISS the opportunity to HEAL MY false beliefs… Why would I be upset for someone pushing my buttons when they are MY BUTTONS…

3. The Wild Woman is only intimidating to those who are not yet free. She’s our mirror of all that we are, or all that we have to become. She is the living invitation!

4. “Life isn’t as serious as my mind makes it out to be.” -Eckhart Tolle

 

Paradise is where I AM

1. Try loving everybody. Try loving those you never liked and who don’t like you. Try loving your enemies. Try loving yourself. Try to let the judgments, grievances and guilt go. Just love everybody. You don’t have to say anything to them. Just try it. See if your life doesn’t change. See if you don’t start getting happy for no reason.

 

2. Look within. This is advice that I hear again and again. When I do look within, this is what I find: there is no world. There are no problems. There is no suffering. There are no questions. There is the peace and a timeless sense of expansiveness, light, love and well being.Thanks Benny

 

3. “My experience has been that trying to remove negative thoughts and focus on the positive ones just didn’t work for me. Well at least in the long run. I found that the only time I ever suffered was when I attached to some thought that told me something or someone should be different than they are. These were thoughts that once investigated, and seen through, or should I say, seen that they weren’t true, would simply let me go. The circumstance that is happening is Never the problem, only my thoughts about it are. When these thoughts are seen through, where is the problem? Freedom only exists in Complete acceptance of what is, right here in front of me. It doesn’t mean I don’t find myself moving away from someone or a situation. It can now be done without judgments or anger. No judgment, No expectation, No problems.”‘

 

4. In a particular moment you can stay conscious and open…even with the pain that is here, the hunger that is here. In this moment, pain is the teacher because it pulls your full attention inside it. This discovery is miraculous, startling and always surprising. ~ Gangaji

1. Right and Wrong? You and your partner are both right in your desire to be Loved and Respected. You are both wrong in your attempt to blame the other person for your unhappiness.

 

2. “Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.” ~  Robert Brault

 

3. We will find, as we look back upon our life, that the moments when we have truly lived are the moments when we have done things in the Spirit of Love.

 

4. The self that needs protection is NOT REAL..  A Course in Miracles

 

5. It is impossible for a man to learn what he thinks he already knows. ~ Epictetus

 

You Don't have the Wrong Horse

1. A bird sitting on a tree is never afraid of the branch breaking, because her trust is not on the branch but on it’s own wings. Always believe in yourSelf…

 

2. The essence of Buddhism lies in developing oneself through one’s own determination and tenacious effort—not by depending on anyone or anything else. At the same time, neither is it to be confused with the arrogance to suppose, “I alone am correct and respect worthy.” To believe in the immense potential within oneself is at once to believe in the immense potential existing within all people. Buddhism teaches that we should treasure the lives of others just as highly as we treasure our own.

 

3.  The quality of our lives ultimately depends upon our state of mind. As Milton famously wrote, “The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a Heaven of Hell, a Hell of Heaven.”

 

4. “You can’t undo the ego. You you you think you are is the ego. The best that you can do is allow yourself to be undone – lose. How to lose? Don’t defend yourself. Turn the other cheek. Love your enemies. Don’t make any plans against future uncertainties. Be not restless. Don’t think that you know what you are, or what anything is for. Don’t give meaning to anything that you see. Nothing that you think means anything. Don’t decide. Don’t compare. Don’t compete. Don’t make any demands. Don’t adjust. Be neither careful nor careless. Accept the idea that your body is insignificant (just one of the things of this earth that will soon be dust). Step back and turn your will and your life over to God. Trust and listen. Let yourself be guided. Let yourself be undone very gently.” Thanks Benny

 

5. When we step outside our comfort zone for our Higher Purpose, the Universe supports US in every way…

 

Have Faith

1. When we step outside our comfort zone for our higher  purpose, the Universe supports us in every way….

 

2. Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves…

 

3. When we have realized the Truth of who we ARE, rather than what we have conditioned ourselves to believe we are, we will be smiling in every cell of our Being. And it is infectious.

 

4. Peace… It does not mean we are in a place where there is no noise, challenges or hard work. It means to be in the midst of these things and still be calm in our hearts…

Sing like the birds

1. Eyes are useless when the mind is blind… 

 

2. Everything will come in perfect timing… 

 

3. We are free to choose but we are not free from the consequences of our choices… as we awaken/re-member to Truth, we start to see these choices differently and then we can ASK Divine Inner Guidance for ALL consequences to be undone… 

 

4. Remember the High Vibrational Being you Truly Are. You are Light and Energy, not this form that you temporarily occupy…
