1. A Course in Miracles teaches, “Nothing real can be threatened.” We don’t have to force things. We do not have to manipulate. What’s in alignment with our soul’s highest good is inevitable. Relax.

 

2. “Why is it that a prisoner, locked away for his crime and left alone in his cell may weep, when a Buddhist Monk alone in the same cell would celebrate? Because they can left alone with their thoughts and can be at peace with their thoughts after ending their own suffering.” ~ Byron Katie

 

3. Your enemy is the teacher who shows you what you haven’t healed yet. Any place you defend is where you’re still suffering. There’s nothing out there that can oppose you. There is just fluid motion, like the wind. You attach a story to what you perceive, and that story is your suffering. I am everything that I have ever called other people; they were ME all along. Everything I ever called my enemy was ME. Projection would have us see reality as a them and a me, but reality is much kinder. All enemies are your kind teachers, just waiting for you to realize it. No one can be my enemy until I perceive him as threatening what I believe. -Byron Katie, One Thousand Names for Joy ♥

 

4. What If? The ego-mind is always asking “What if?” It is always exploring the possibility that there may be a better place to be,  a better job, a better relationship, etc.  All this is motivated by fear.  We don’t experience what is directly,  because we have so many expectations and interpretations of it. Spontaneous acceptance of our lives as they unfold in the moment is quite rare. ~ Everyday Wisdom by Paul Ferrini

4. “If we learn to open our hearts, anyone, including the people who drive us crazy, can be our teacher.” ~ Pema Chödrön  (We can be grateful for everyone.)

 

5. “We create suffering, but cannot really create the release of that suffering. We can simply stop what we are creating, not in the future, in this very moment. Just stop.” ~ Gangaji

 

6. If I feel defensive or fearful – if I feel anything other than love and peace, then I have identified with an illusion. I am not interested in learning how to defend the illusion. I am interested in learning and teaching how to let the fear go so that I can know the Love and Peace.

1. “The light in one awakens it in all. And when you see it in your brother, you are remembering for everyone.” ~ Anita Moorjani

 

2. Everyone in your life is a figment of your imagination–even you. ~ Byron Katie

 

3. Ending the Pain of Separation:
When you know that the spiritual journey is not an external one, you stop losing yourself in the world. You see that the world is not causing your suffering. You are causing it. You understand that suffering cannot be ended in the world until it is ended in your heart. Authentic spirituality is the path to your own heart. It leads through all your fears and self-deceptions. It is not a journey of escape. It is a journey through your pain to end the pain of separation. ~  Paul Ferrini

 

4. The only problem that you are ever having is in believing the thoughts that something or someone should be different than they are. Hope is the worst of the bunch. Hope is you trying to reach into the future and attempting to manipulate it to what you want it to be. It will all unfold exactly as it will with or without your consent. It is just one hell of a lot easier with your permission. You will do it Absolutely Perfectly.

 

Never Regret

1. “Be grateful for whoever comes, because each has been sent as a guide from beyond.” ~ Rumi ♥

 

2. Our days show up happier when we give people a bit of our heart rather than a piece of our mind…. 

 

3. Let go of the past and the past will Let Go of YOU… 

 

4. Living a life of Love does not happen to you; but through You…. 

 

5. “The truth is that waking up can be a disturbing process. Who really wants to find out that everything they thought was real was nothing but a pocket full of dreams? Who wants to find out that everything they hold onto and cling to is the very reason they suffer? Who really wants to find out that we’re all addicted to qualities like approval, recognition, control, and power, and that none of these things actually bring an end to suffering? In fact, they’re the cause of suffering! So the truth is that most of us don’t really want to wake up. We don’t really want to end suffering. What we really want to do is manage our suffering to have a little less of it, so that we can just go on with our lives as they are, unchanged, the way we want to live them, maybe feeling a little better about them.” ~ Adyashanti

1. The only real homeland security is the knowledge that whatever the world brings your way, your soul is safe in your own two hands. A certain faith develops, not simply that the universe will provide for you, but that you will provide for you. 

 

2. Sometimes we FEEL the rain, at other times we just get wet…. 

 

3. “If you don’t know, then it’s all right. If you don’t know, then don’t think of any expectations. If there are no expectations, then you are free. If you expect, then you are in bondage. Choose whatever you want. Expectations are never fulfilled.”~  Poon

 

4. Self awareness can be wonderful. Rather than always be working on letting something go, it becomes easier as time goes by to notice when we are picking something up – then, we can make a better choice and decide not to pick it up to begin with. ~ Jacob Glass

 

5. We carry the Light of Creation within US….

1. A True Miracle is a shift in perception… From fear to Love

 

2. “Each person is born with a unique individuality, and each person has a destiny of his or her own. Imitation is crime, it is criminal. If you try to become a Buddha, you may look like Buddha, you may walk like him, you may talk like him, but you will miss. You will miss all that life was ready to deliver to you. Buddha happens only once. It is not in the nature of things to repeat. Existence is so creative that it never repeats anything. You cannot find another human being in the present, in the past, or in the future who is going to resemble you exactly. It has never happened. The human being is not a mechanism like Ford cars on an assembly line. Never imitate anybody.” ~ Osho

 

3. The person that triggers you the most is just reminding you of what you believe about yourself. Just look at the belief so that it releases. And then thank that person! 

 

4. How easy do we, without taking notice, become our own prisoners by taking ourselves and our projects tooooo seriously !

1. Be Aware of the temptation to make your problems your identity. 

 

2. “The whole world is you. Yet you keep thinking there is something else.” ~ Hsueh Feng

 

3. Note to self: Be aware, we will be tempted again and again to believe that we are being unfairly treated. If we buy into it our heart will start pounding and our mind will endlessly spew out thoughts of attack and defense. We don’t really want to go down that road again. It’s a sick place to be. We wrote the script. It’s time to see this. Do what needs to be done, but the reality of it does not justify all the emotional upset. This is the vicious cycle until we re-member to choose differently… 

4. “A teacher of fear can’t bring peace on Earth. We have been trying to do it that way for thousands of years. The person who turns inner violence around, the person who finds peace inside and lives it, is the one who teaches what true peace is. We are waiting for just one teacher. You’re the one.”  Ms Katie

 

5. Believe in your heart that something wonderful is about to happen. Love your Life. Believe in your own powers, in your own potential, and your own goodness. Wake up every morning with the awe of being alive. Live this day well…

Thoughts and Quotes for Today 6.20.13 June 20, 2013

Filed under: Love — C. Faith Holland @ 2:54 pm

1. You are the SKY, everything else is just the weather….

2. “No one wishes to be “rescued” with someone else’s beliefs. Remember your task is not to convert anyone to anything, but to help the person in front of you get in touch with his or her own strength, confidence, faith, and spirituality, whatever that might be. ”  Tibetan book of Living and Dying

3. Take a moment to look at the most disturbing thoughts in your mind right now and simply ask, “why do I want to listen to this?”

4. “Hurt feelings or discomfort of any kind cannot be caused by another person. No one outside me can hurt me. That’s not a possibility. It’s only when I believe a story that I get hurt. And I’m the one who’s hurting me by believing what I think. This is very good news, because it means that I don’t have to get someone else to stop hurting me. It’s within my power.” ~ Byron Katie

5. “Life is not the way it’s supposed to be. It is the way it is. The way you cope with it is what makes the difference. I think if I have one message, one thing before I die that most of the world would know, it would be that the event does not determine how to respond to the event. That is a purely personal matter. The way in which we respond will direct and influence the event more than the event itself.” ~ Virginia Satir

6. When we start to pursue an inspired life, it changes US. We don’t fit in anymore to a world of negativity & complaint. Although we may feel like we don’t fit in in our old life, we will finally fit into our own skin. Then we will fit in everywhere. Self-love changes everything.

 

Everyone is doing their Best
