1. “A clear and sane mind knows how to live, how to work, what e-mails to send,
what phone calls to make, and what to do to create what it wants without fear. ” – Katie

 

2. The Love that we ARE far outshines the thoughts that we think or the words that we speak.

 

3. Love trumps anything that this world has to offer. Love is not about bodies. Love is content and NOT form. It is Love itself that calls to US from beyond this world. And when our heartstrings start to sing nothing else seems to matter. May you always be IN Love, and let Love be IN you.

 

4. I begin every day of my life with an expression of gratitude. And so today, I want to begin by saying “thank you” to you.  

Thank you, Thank You, THANK YOU…. 

5. Let your Light SHINE bright…

1. This is your time now. It is the time you have come here to experience, to enjoy, to serve and to Awaken. This is the moment and the opportunity when you can finally step forward in great and profound ways.

You have within you a magnificent power to heal, calm, support and uplift yourself and everything around you. This power is part of your birthright and it is Awakening in you right now!

Take this opportunity to become the true leader and wise Being you long to become. Model the loving strength, calm focus and grounded actions which help your awareness of Love and Awakening to blossom. The time is now. The changes are happening. And the energy is here to support you!

 

2. Awakening means we begin to see things differently – our values change. What we no longer value (possessions, jobs, relationships) will fall away from us. We go through what seems to be a period of relinquishment. Change is a coming. And it might look like big loss. But what seems to be lost was valueless to begin with. Our focus is shifting to that which is of real value.

 

3. The less aware we are of the love, joy, peace and light that is the abundance of our heritage, the more lacking and needy we feel. Real poverty or scarcity is simply an unawareness of the abundance that is always ours. And the more impoverished and needy we feel the more desperately we scream “I want it this way.”

 

4. To want to be other than you are is to not love who you are now. ~ Thanks Fred

1. To undo one belief is to undo thousands of years of time. ~ Byron Katie

2. How I wish to see any situation often becomes what I see. It is either with the mind of Love, or I allow fear to lead me.  We are always giving meaning to the world we see…

3. While I do what I LOVE, financial abundance flows through me.

4. Our teacher will meet us wherever we think we are and set the bar a reachable distance above that point. More often than not our greatest teacher is our daily life.

1. Whatever happens to you, don’t fall in despair. Even if all the doors are closed, a secret path will be there for you that no one knows. You can’t see it yet but so many paradises are at the end of this path. Be grateful! It is easy to thank after obtaining what you want, thank before having what you want. ~ Shams Tabrizi 

 

2. Christ, Buddha, Krishna, Lao Tzu and other great spiritual teachers did not die thousands of years ago. If we resonate with their teachings, then they live with us today, in our hearts and minds and in the holy places where we meet. ~  Paul Ferrini

 

3. No matter how enlightened I may think I am there is no escape from problems while seeming to be here (in a world of separation and death). But I can step back from identifying with the one who seems to have problems. That one is not me. I am the witness who rests in peace without judging, giving meaning, or being affected by any of it.

 

4. Q: If I am free, why am I in a body?

M: You are not in the body, the body is in you! The mind is in you. They happen to you. They are there because you find them interesting. 

Your very nature has the infinite capacity to enjoy. It is full of zest and affection. It sheds its radiance on all that comes within its focus of awareness and nothing is excluded. It does not know evil nor ugliness, it hopes, it trusts, it loves.

You people do not know how much you miss by not knowing your own true self. 

You are neither the body nor the mind, neither the fuel nor the fire. They appear and disappear according to their own laws.

1. Healing the Divided Self: Our challenge is to learn to accept all of ourselves, not just the parts that we like. Holding all aspects of ourselves gently and with compassion is what heals the divided self and brings unity to our consciousness. ~ Paul Ferrini

 

2. The Sleeping Christ/Buddha: Each person can overcome separation and rediscover and reclaim the inner unity. The inner unity represents the birth of the One Self within our consciousness. In Truth, each self is the One Self. Every man or woman is either a waking or sleeping Christ or Buddha. ~ Paul Ferrini

 

3. “Mindfulness is the quality and power of mind that is aware of what’s happening — without judgment and without interference. It is like a mirror that simply reflects whatever comes before it. It serves us in the humblest ways, keeping us connected to brushing our teeth or having a cup of tea. It keeps us connected to the people around us, so that we’re not simply rushing by them in the busyness of our lives. The Dalai Lama is an example of someone who beautifully embodies this quality of caring attention: after one conference in Arizona, His Holiness requested that all the employees of the hotel gather in the lobby so that he could greet each one of them before he left for his next engagement.

The Buddha also spoke of mindfulness as being the path to enlightenment: “This is the direct path for the purification of beings, for the overcoming of sorrow and lamentation, for the disappearing of pain and grief, for the attainment of the Way, for the realization of nirvana.”

We can start the practice of mindfulness meditation with the simple observation and feeling of each breath. Breathing in, we know we’re breathing in; breathing out, we know we’re breathing out. It’s very simple, although not easy. After just a few breaths, we hop on trains of association, getting lost in plans, memories, judgments and fantasies. This habit of wandering mind is very strong, even though our reveries are often not pleasant and sometimes not even true. As Mark Twain so aptly put it, “Some of the worst things in my life never happened.” So we need to train our minds, coming back again and again to the breath, simply beginning again.

Slowly, though, our minds steady and we begin to experience some space of inner calm and peace. This environment of inner stillness makes possible a deeper investigation of our thoughts and emotions. What is a thought—that strange, ephemeral phenomenon that can so dominate our lives? When we look directly at a thought, we see that it is little more than nothing. Yet when it is unnoticed, it wields tremendous power. Notice the difference between being lost in a thought and being mindful that we’re thinking. Becoming aware of the thought is like waking up from a dream or coming out of a movie theater after being absorbed in the story. Through mindfulness, we gradually awaken from the movies of our minds.” ~ Joseph Goldstein

1. Out of Darkness into Light: When we embrace our own darkness and find the light within, we begin to see the light in others and to see the shadow with compassion. We are no longer intimidated by a world in which violence seems to prevail, for we understand that this is but a symptom of the separated self. We hear the heart-rending cry for love, not dissimilar from the one that came from our own lips when we were feeling the pain of separation. ~ Paul Ferrini

 

2. Stop hanging onto that story about being unfairly treated and unloved. You cannot be unfairly treated. It’s your dream. You wrote the script, and you asked for the experience that you had. And the love and appreciation that you didn’t get is what you failed to give.

 

3. Suffering is not God’s will for you. It is not about giving up or escaping the suffering. It is about no longer identifying with anything that can suffer.

 

4. Many of US are obsessed with worry about our future, but this is why many of US live joyless lives. However, when we can find JOY in the present moment and every present moment from here on, we are creating a joyful (Joy full) future. 

 

5. The fact that I can plant a seed and it becomes a flower, share a bit of knowledge and it becomes another’s, smile at someone and receive a smile in return, are to me continual spiritual exercises. ~ Leo Buscaglia

1. “You don’t have to believe everything your thoughts tell you. Just become familiar with the particular thoughts you use to deprive yourself of happiness. You move totally away from reality when you believe that there is a legitimate reason to suffer.” – Byron Katie

2. “You can’t change the fruit without changing the root.” – Stephen R. Covey

3. The world will always proves me “right” in my opinion of myself and others.  Practice holding a Higher opinion for yourself and those around you…

4. Refuse to cater to low-energy mental activity. Be determined to unquestionably place your thoughts not on what you can’t do, but on what you intend to create. Stay in this mind-set and you’ll never want to use the low-energy excuse again. ~ Wayne Dyer
