Thoughts and Quotes for Today 12.13.13 December 13, 2013

1. I am doing this to myself. Everything I experience I have asked for and received as per my request. Yet, everything that happens is carefully planned by one whose only purpose is my good – even what seem to be the bad things that happen. How I see and experience the stuff that happens is what I am doing to myself. Which is why I am learning to choose again – to make better choices in how I see and react to the stuff that seems to happen.  Thanks Benny

 

2. While we are preoccupied with our special relationships and the activities of the day, there is something else. We’re missing it! The Voice of Spirit/Source can be heard, but we are not listening. The pure light of the real world can be seen but that is not what we choose to see. The love of God/Source/Creator/Universe can be felt but we have blocked it from our awareness. While we are busy defending that which we mistakenly think we are, there is something else. If we really knew what we were missing we would drop everything and give it our full attention. There is something else – something expansive and more – even now – a complete alternative to what seems to have captured our awareness.

 

3. “When we’re true to ourselves, we become instruments of truth for the planet. Because we’re all connected, we touch the lives of everyone around us, who then affect others. Our only obligation is to be the love we are and allow our answers to come from within in the way that’s most appropriate for us.

Finally, I can’t stress enough how important it is to enjoy yourself and not take yourself or life too seriously. One of the biggest flaws with many traditional spiritual systems is that they give you such a somber outlook. Although you know that I abhor creating doctrines, if I ever had to create a set of tenets for a spiritual path to healing, number one on my list would be to make sure to laugh as often as possible throughout every single day—and preferably laugh at myself. This would be hands down over and above any form of prayer, meditation, chanting, or diet reform. Day-to-day problems never seem as big when viewed through a veil of humor and love.

In this age of information technology, we’re bombarded with news seemingly at the speed of light. We’re living in an age of high stress and fear, and in the midst of trying to protect ourselves from everything we think is “out there,” we’ve forgotten to enjoy ourselves and to take care of what’s inside.

Our life is our prayer. It’s our gift to this universe, and the memories we leave behind when we someday exit this world will be our legacy to our loved ones. We owe it to ourselves and to everyone around us to be happy and to spread that joy around.
If we can go through life armed with humor and the realization that we are love, we’ll already be ahead of the game. Add a box of good chocolates into the mix, and we’ve really got a winning formula!” ~ Anita Moorjani from Dying to be Me

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. Do not pursue the past. Do not lose yourself in the future. The past no longer is. The future has not yet come. Looking deeply at life as it is, in the very here and now, the practitioner dwells in stability and freedom. ~ Bhaddekaratta Sutta ~

2. “Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” – Einstein

“I’m not good enough”
Ouch!
“I’m not good enough”
Ouch!
“I’m not good enough”
Ouch!

“Forgive me for believing I’m not good enough” Ahhhhh!
“Forgive me for forgetting that I am whole, complete, and perfect as I am” Aaahhhhhhh!! Choose Again

3. Being with someone you have nothing in common with might be the best learning experience you can have at this time. That which you think you have nothing in common with is your own stuff being projected out there. What a wonderful opportunity to release those judgments – to learn to love and laugh it all away. The more quickly this is learned the sooner you can move on, and when it is time to move on it will be a no-brainer.

4.“Truth is not a reward for good behavior, nor a prize for passing some tests. It cannot be brought about. It is the primary, the unborn, the ancient source of all that is. You are eligible because you are. You need not merit truth. It is your own….Stand still, be quiet.” ~Sri Nisargadatta
