What’s wrong with being a people pleaser? I love treating others as I would like to be treated. But if people pleasing is motivated by fear and/or a need for others to like and validate me, then I am coming from the wrong place. There is nothing wrong with being a people pleaser, but it should be about the joy of giving, not a sacrifice that is motivated by the need to get.

Choose Peace

“Teaching is done in many ways, above all by example. Teaching should be healing, because it is the sharing of ideas and the recognition that to share ideas is to strengthen them. I cannot forget my need to teach what I have learned, which arose in me because I learned it. I call upon you to teach what you have learned, because by so doing you can depend on it.” ~ ACIM (5-IV-5)

Have what I need...

Separation or Joining: Each moment offers us a choice of whether to separate or join. That is the only choice we have faced before and the only choice we will ever face. Unfortunately, we do not remember the pain of separation or the bliss of joining. That is why we have come to this place together, to help each other remember. ~ Paul Ferrini

Our 30 Day Commitment to Peace Starts Today October 1, 2014 October 1, 2014

I have started a FaceBook Page for A 30 Day Commitment to Peace, IF it feels right for you, please ask to JOIN and I will add you, it is invitation only, we are committing to reading the following and many other things to Shift our thinking. We will be creating our own Commitment to Peace statements as well for next week, more information about this is at the bottom of this writing.

Our Readings and Statements for Our 30 day Commitment to Peace

The following is Our Truth Statement for the next 30 days please read daily, at least once in the morning and once in the evening and as many times as needed during the day:

I am the dreamer of this dream and the world that I see is a manifestation of my thoughts and feelings.

This world has no other cause, and I have had enough of pain, suffering and death.

I will choose Love instead of fear – Peace instead of conflict.

I will no longer look on disaster and catastrophe.

I will no longer look on myself and others as if we were bodies.

I will look on myself and others as if we were immortal beings of Light eternally joined in a world of light.

AND Each day of the 30 day Commitment to the Peace, we commit to awakening to Truth by reading the following:

1. It is Love that I fear more than anything.

It is IN the Love of God that my separate personal identity (the self with the small s), and my little make-believe world will disappear.

Yes, my defenses would keep this Love from penetrating, and my defenses are strong, but not that strong.

2.The world that I see is only dreaming and I am the dreamer of this world.

It has nothing to do with God. Nor does it have any real effect on the safe and certain changelessness of Reality.

There is “Peace” far beyond understanding, to be found in that changelessness.

I will close my eyes and let my awareness take root in the changeless.

This world, which never was, will disappear in that eternal Peace.

3. This seemingly live experience is as easy or as hard as I want to make it.

And I am the only one who could possibly deprive myself of anything.

Love is all there IS – what I don’t give IS what I deprive myself of.

4. I have experienced the power of my mind. I know I have.

I thought it one moment, and the next moment it came to pass.

And I knew, or at least suspected, that this was the result of my mind.

And IF it was the result of my mind, then the question would have to be, “is my mind just a little powerful some of the time, or is it all Powerful ALL of the time?”

5. The quantum guys are pretty sure that wave-like patterns of energy behave differently depending on who is looking – the observer has an effect on that which is being observed.

Is this the power of my mind?

Is this why things, situations and events sometimes seem to manifest and change in response to my thinking?

But how could this be if the world that I see is separate, apart and outside of me?

Of course, if it is all just dreaming, then I could understand.

The world that I see is not outside of me. Cause and effect are not apart.

I am literally looking at my own thoughts and feelings. Which would explain why I can only see it if I believe it.

6. It doesn’t really exist. It’s just a projection of my mind. There is no world. Wow!

That’s a game changing realization. Is there a me, or am I just an image in the dream?

Am I the dreamer of the dream making the mistake of identifying with one of the images in my dream? And what about the others?

If I am the dreamer of the dream, then they are just projections of my mind. There is only me, and I am the only cause of the world that I see.

7. If I am going to assume my rightful place as ruler of my kingdom I am going to have to release all victim mentality.

I am going to have to stop blaming God for the bad stuff, and I am going to have to stop giving Him credit for the good that comes my way.

I am doing this to myself – the results of my mind.

I am forever grateful to God for the Love that I am and that continues to fill me every moment, and that joins me with all of creation.

And again we read the Commitment Statement:

I am the dreamer of the dream and the world that I see is a manifestation of my thoughts and feelings.

This world has no other cause, and I have had enough of pain, suffering and death.

I will choose love instead of fear – peace instead of conflict.

I will no longer look on disaster and catastrophe.

I will no longer look on myself and others as if we were bodies.

I will look on myself and others as if we were immortal beings of light eternally joined in a world of light.

We will be making our OWN statement for what we are WILLING to reduce by 50% this coming week so please be an observer of what you LET interfere with your Peace through out your day… and remember, we do NOT stop criticizing by criticizing ourselves, we do NOT stop blaming by blaming ourselves, we do not stop any behavior by focusing on it, we turn 180 degrees from it and start a new behavior, let that become our “habit” and lets see where that takes us… SO, we are going to observe over the next week what we LET interfere with our Peace… post it here (if you are willing) and Next week we will be making our own statements.. Example “I commit this week to reducing blame in my relationship by 50%” or “I commit this week to reducing criticism in my relationships (or at work or any specific or general area) by 50%” “I commit to reducing guilt in my life this week by 50%” and we are going to be specific on how… Example “I will give 10 times MORE appreciations statements than I will give criticisms” or “When I am feeling less than or fearful and start to blame, I will say something like hmmmmmmmmm, I WONDER what this is here to teach me”

1. Nature does not hurry yet everything is accomplished.  ~ Lao Tzu

2. I do not wish to convert people from one organized religion to another. I have no interest in any of these organized religions. My interest is in Truth, the teachings of all Enlightened Ones. If at all there is any conversion, it should be from misery to happiness, from defilement to purity, from bondage to liberation, from ignorance to enlightenment. ~ S. N. Goenka ~

3. Unless we learn to face our own shadows, we will continue to see them in “others” because the world outside is only a reflection of the world inside

4. Everyone wants to go to heaven but no one wants to die. It has nothing to do with dying. On the contrary, it has everything to do with choosing to be fully alive, loving and aware in this moment. Heaven is here, it is now, and it waits only on recognition and acceptance of what is, has been and will always be – an expansive awareness of union (Oneness) with all of creation.

5. Know that we have the power to make better choices: Love – not fear. Strength – not weakness. Light – not darkness. Life – not death. Spirit – not body/ego. Joy – not sorrow. Inclusive wholeness (oneness) – not separation. Forgiveness and innocence  – not guilt and grievances. AND experiencing the contrast is usually the way we learn to make better choices.

1. Trust does not micro-manage each incident, weighing and pondering what to accept or not. Trust knows the Big Picture, fully acknowledging the Mind from which its Self arises with a Heart felt in gratitude. Thanks Pamela

2. If we do not find love within ourselves, we will imagine it to be out there somewhere in the world or in relationships. All along, we are the Love that we seek, that everyone seeks, that everyone IS… Trusting that and being open to that will allow the Love to bubble up and flow and flowwwww and flowwwww….

 

3. I have searched the world over for the love of my life. I thought I had found it in her/him – and then in her/him – and then in her/him, only to have my heart broken again and again. Finally, after having given up the search, I found that she/he was with me all along. The Love of my Life was and is Love and Life itself – the miraculous, wonderful ever giving gifts of God/Source/Creator.

 

4. . Giving up our life for the sake of Divine Love does not mean that we make death welcome. It means that we give up our plan. We turn our will and life over to the Universal Power. Releasing our special relationship does not mean that we no longer Love and be with one another. It means that we turn our relationship over to Source and trust. We give up the idea of getting anything we thought we needed or wanted out of the relationship. This world is blessed by relationships that are used by the Divine Love for  it’s purpose. Thanks Benny for 2-4

 

Be in Love with your life

 

Thoughts and Quotes for Today 11.16.13 November 16, 2013

1. “What do you want for our planet, for your community? If what you want is peace and cooperation, and you are willing to really not know how that will come about, then your mind will open to discover.” ~ from Gangaji’s Letting the World into Your Heart

 

2. Trust, faith and hope are only my imagination that the future is real. They take me out of THIS Perfection that is always here, Now…

 

3. The Past & The Big Picture:  The past only has an impact on the present when you continue to waste your powerful thought and feeling energies on something that no longer exists at all, other than in your own mind. Whatever it was that happened is finished now, and no matter how uncomfortable it was for you, you need to come to the understanding that at some level you chose it, and that it helped to build your character and make you a stronger individual.

Whenever you do find yourself wondering why something turned out the way it did, I suggest calling to mind the old adage that often times ‘God does work in mysterious ways’. The truth is, you really don’t know the ‘big picture’. So, even though you might be inclined to feel sad about a certain event in your past, make the decision to accept the realization that there is a higher order to things, and that something good will eventually come of it. – Jeff Maziarek, from “Spirituality Simplified”

 

4. How to tell if you are dead or alive: if we are fearful, unhappy or concerned for any reason, then we are dead. If Peace, Love, Joy and Light are in our awareness, then we are alive. Our function here is to be about the business of raising the dead.

1. There is no security for those who seek it outside of themselves. I am Love, as long as I seek it from you, I can’t know that… ~ Bryon Katie

 

2. An “enemy” presents you with nothing but the opportunity to change your mind.

 

3. We can choose to hold a white-knuckled, painful death grip on the past; yet, after all the pain and numbness subsists, we can open our hands and see nothing was ever there to grip onto.   People will say, “Well, I have to work on my goals,” or, “I have to work on my visualization.” And we want you to think more about holding the vision because it is pleasurable to hold the vision, not because you’re trying to make the vision work in order to get to some place that you’re not now standing. “How much should I work?” We would say, work in the sense of joyously moving forward. ~Abraham

 

4. The Power of Light: Light does not resist or avoid darkness.  It merely includes it, welcomes it.  Thus, darkness disappears into the light.  Light is not afraid of the shadow for it knows the appearance of the shadow is the first sign of illumination.  When the shadow cannot provoke our fear, it has no power to undermine us. ~ Paul Ferrini

1. Incredible change happens in your life when you decide to take control of what you do have power over instead of craving control over what you don’t. – Steve Maraboli

 

2. Taking off the Mask: The persona and the behavior associated with it is just a mask. If you see only the mask, you won’t see who the other person is. If s/he sees only your mask, s/he will not see you truly. ~ Paul Ferrini

 

3. Suffering is a product of limited knowledge. ~ Sri Sri Ravishankar

 

4. When we slow down we allow the Universe to work on our behalf.

 

5. The Wrong Choice?: You think your problem lies in making the wrong choice. Yet every choice is an opportunity to learn. It cannot be wrong, unless your refuse to learn from your mistakes. ~ Paul Ferrini

 

6. “Life is love, dearest. All else is imagined confusion.” ~Byron Katie
