Review and Renew With Gratitude:

No matter what my current reality is – no matter how frustrating, painful, threatening or terrifying it is in the moment – there is one thing I know I can count on: THE MAJORITY OF LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL AND WORKS. My problem, and I’m sure this happens to others, is that in times of perceived trouble, I don;t always see the beauty. It’s not that it isn’t there, it’s just that I don’t see through the morass of my own reality to the underlying perfection that always resides.

It amazes me how situation-centric and myopic I can be about distressing things; how I can sit in the midst of beauty and focus entirely as what I view as uncomfortable. Even as I write this, an issue in my life is weighing heavily on me, and I know that if I intend to live aware and grateful, I must take steps to right this situation. This does not mean I need to fix it, rectify it or reason through it (although all of those things will eventually be required). What it means is that I need to put it into perspective with everything else. The sun still shines, the leaves are budding, I am healthy and vibrant, my life is good and at times such as these, it is an absolute necessity to bring my focus to the whole of my life and not just one isolated circumstance.

Now is the time to review and renew that old mantra I was taught as a child to use as a tool. Now is the time to “STOP, LOOK AND LISTEN.” Stop obsessing on a situation, stop justifying my stance, stop replaying it over and over and stop complaining about it. Look around. Look at the beauty, the vibrancy, the abundance, the light. And listen – listen to that inner voice that calls forward the gift of life, being and joy. Love, peace, beauty, energy, abundance and light surround me and await my recognition of it. Suddenly the situation – whether health, wealth, creative expression or relationship – takes on the proportion it deserves instead of the bulk I have bestowed upon it. Suddenly life is filled yet again with beauty. The situation did not change; my perspective changed, and my perspective is what creates the quality of my life experience. BLESSINGS. ~Dr. Kenn Gordon ~ Science of Mind

As we enter into a new year, you may be deciding on goals or focus. Can you be intentional, but not aggressive? Can you allow your soul to choose your goals instead of your mind? Your new year already has a life of its own. Something wants to be born. Don’t miss the cues because you “have a plan.” ~ Tama

New year

“You are not a drop in the ocean. You are the entire ocean, in a drop.” ~ Rumi

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” ~ Marianne Williamson – Return to Love

Entire ocean in a drop

You suppose you are the trouble … But you are the cure. You suppose that you are the lock on the door … But you are the key that opens it. It’s too bad that you want to be someone else… You don’t see your own face, your own beauty. Yet, no face is more beautiful … Than yours…  ~ Rumi

Thoughts and Quotes for Today 2.25.14 February 25, 2014

1. Thoughts are an important part of your inner wisdom—and they are very powerful. A thought held long enough and repeated often enough becomes a belief. A belief then becomes your biology. Beliefs are energetic forces that create the physical basis for your individual life and your health. ~ Dr. Christiane Northrup

 

2. What if it turns out that the separate personal you is meaningless, insignificant and unimportant? Is this something that you can accept, or is it something that you are going to fight against and try to prove wrong? What if it turns out that your acceptance is key to an awareness of Love, Peace and Joy? Are you torn?

 

3. You are all geniuses, and you’re all beautiful. You don’t need anyone to tell you who you are. You are what you are. ~ John Lennon

 

4. “Since the beginning of time, people have been trying to change the world so that they can be happy. This hasn’t ever worked, because it approaches the problem backward. What The Work gives us is a way to change the projector—mind—rather than the projected. It’s like when there’s a piece of lint on a projector’s lens. We think there’s a flaw on the screen, and we try to change this person and that person, whomever the flaw appears on next. But it’s futile to try to change the projected images. Once we realize where the lint is, we can clear the lens itself. This is the end of suffering, and the beginning of a little joy in paradise.”  ~ Byron Katie

 

5. It hurt like hell when she seemed to have died and left me alone. And then I found her there in my mind – with me – not separate, just as we are all joined, always one – never separate and alone. ~ Benny

 

6. The more I focus my mind upon the good, the more good comes to me. The key is that my thinking creates my experiences. I use this key in every area of my life. ~ Louise Hay

thank you thank you thank you

1.  When we realize we are worthy of living a Beautiful Life, we won’t let anything or anyone stand in our way.

2. “May you always do what you are afraid to do.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

3. If you want to be successful, you must respect one rule NEVER LIE TO YOURSELF Paulo Coelho

4. “Remind everyone close to you to be themselves, and tell them that you love them just the way they are! They’re perfect and so are you. There’s nothing not to love. Most suffering stems from feeling “less than.” You aren’t less than anything or anyone! You are complete.The only thing you need to learn is that you already are what you’re seeking to attain.! Just express your uniqueness fearlessly, with abandon! That’s why you’re made the way you are, and that’s why you’re here in the physical world.” ~ Anita Moorjani from Dying To Be Me

5. IF IT FEELS RIGHT FOR YOU, this is a Link to a 30 minute talk… of a 23 yr old who american who became the mother of 30 in Nepal… I have been to Nepal… had wanted to work with the kids there but landed in PV instead and got to live that dream.. http://www.karmatube.org/videos.php?id=4344

1. Peace is found within oneself because of a choice made regardless of outside circumstances. Thanks Fred

 

2. There is a place in US that truly never stops shining. Beautiful people shine on the inside. Look for the beauty in everything you encounter today, remember this acceptance to one self is a path to true beauty on the inside. Be an example today of the beautiful person you truly ARE. We can go out into the world and Shine no matter what our circumstance are.

 

3. Your life IS your spiritual path: Don’t be quick to abandon it for promises of bigger and better experiences. You are getting exactly the experiences that you need to grow. Your growth and transformation intensify when you fully embrace the situations and relationships at hand. ~  Paul Ferrini

 

4. Impatience in all our Relationships: When either of US are impatient, we do our best to remember that we really are fearful and hence in a hurry. We are learning that our real home is Love, which is a reality where there is NO HURRYING. When we are in the reality of Love, we are not fearful and we are not anxious. For example, if someone is going to slow on the highway and we have an important appointment, we decide to tell ourselves that the driver in front of us is just giving us a lesson in patience. In doing this we arrive at our appointment FULL OF LOVE and PEACE rather than being anxious and pissed off.

1. “To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself.” ~ Thich Nhat Hanh

2. There is a Light that shines beyond all things on earth, beyond the highest, the very highest heavens. This is the Light that shines in your Heart.

3. The best day of our life is the one on which we decide our life is our own. No apologies or excuses. No one to lean on, rely on, or blame. The gift is ours. It is an amazing journey, and we alone are responsible for the quality of it. This is the day our life really begins.

4. “I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you are wonderful, and don’t forget to make some art – write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can.” ~ Neil Gaiman

Happy April

1. We Affirm: I have a wonderful mind. I can choose the thoughts I want to think today and I can choose the way I want to feel – all by guiding my own Consciousness, the same way I would train a puppy. I am patient, kind and consistent with my mind today in guiding it to the thoughts that feel good when I think them. I love and appreciate my beautiful mind.

 

2. Love created me like itself. I am Love. And what else can I do with Love but give it away. This is why giving is much more natural for me than getting. If the motivation for all of my thinking, saying and doing is getting, then I will get into nothing but scarcity. I can only give to myself, and I can only gain by giving. And Love is all there is.

 

3.  “Your gift to the world is not what you buy or do. Your gift is your happiness.” ~ Alan Cohen 

 

4. I have been asked to offer some explanation for bad things that seem to happen – rape, torture, murder, accidents, sickness, etc. There are two ideas I want to take out of the picture right from the start: (Thanks Benny)
A) God has nothing to do with this mad dream you seem to be having – God neither causes nor allows suffering – God knows not of any of this. If God knew of this world then it would be real, and if this is a real place then we are all screwed. Since God does not know of this world there is the need for an intermediary between the mind of God and the dreaming, sleeping mind of His holy son (you) – call that the Holy Spirit or Christ mind. So you might ask, “how can it be that God knows not of this world?” And I would say to forget about God – there is a place of deep peace that you can experience in your own mind where you know nothing of this world. There is your answer. How else could you possibly reconcile God with this world? You would have to say that there is no God, or that God is cruel, or that he is stupid and powerless. The truth is that God is Love and reality is safe and sure and kind. 

B) The other idea that I am going to ask you to remove from your thinking is the idea that you can possibly understand anything on the basis of what seemed to have happened to ‘them.’ There is no ‘them.’ There is only you experiencing the results of your mind. Yes, I know – you do not think that I am offering much help because you still want to know why those terrible things happened to them. Okay, let’s just skim the surface of that, but then I am going to have to move on. If someone seems to have been murdered, for example – do you really know that a terrible thing happened to them? Maybe they went through a tunnel and Jesus greeted them and they are in a better place. Maybe they would have been worse off having to get old and sick and then die. Suppose a child gets raped – is it possible that that person was a rapist in a previous life and the resulting guilt demanded an experience of rape? All I am saying is that you can drive yourself crazy trying to figure out why this or that happened to them. You do not have the big picture.
Now we are ready to talk about this subject from the only perspective that may allow you to gain some helpful understanding – from the perspective of what you personally are experiencing. You are the dreamer of your dream and you are always and only experiencing the results of your mind. If bad things seem to happen to you it is the result of your own negative judgments, fear, grievances or guilt. All of these ‘so called’ bad things are as per decisions that you make. But you forget and don’t want to know this because ego is strengthened when it can play the part of victim. Never-the-less, the Holy Spirit uses everything that happens, even the bad stuff, on behalf of your learning and awakening. So when you look back on your adversity you will ultimately see it as a blessing. This teaching is offered not to make you feel guilty about bad things that seem to happen to you, but to empower you with the idea that all power in heaven and earth is given unto you – you are not a victim, and you can change your experience – you can choose again. I don’t want you to believe any of this – I want you to actually choose a different way of thinking, feeling and seeing so that you can experience for yourself the power of your mind to change your experience. 
Enough said – just a few finally words: you are not a body, and what seems to be happening to your body is not happening to you. This is all just dreaming and none of it has any effect on reality. There is no world. God is Love. Nothing real can be threatened, and reality is safe and sure and kind.

Faith: Sometimes you have to take the leap, and build your wings on the way…
