One of the things we have been speaking about in the 30 Day Commitment to Peace, when it comes to believing we should focus on our Dreams/Hopes/Futures and how they are often our obstacles to Peace in the Moment…

I think the hesitancy to ” go after ” or ” follow ” our dreams may be because we / I don’t want to discover they are NOT “it” –
Perhaps we don’t wish to discover that they cannot and will not offer us what we truly want – what our hearts truly longs for… Perhaps, in a sense, we are ‘enlightened’ to already know this within, that to “go after” them and to find them hollow, and wanting, we wake to see we don’t know who, what or where we really are …. and it is THAT we want to avoid, even though it is here the door to Everything that IS in Truth is opened.
In a way, harboring our dreams is actually designed to keep us small, so very small. In a way ‘non – existent’ ..
As long as I harbor dreams, hopes, ideas and NOT let them have their life, I can imagine them to be something they are not, and imagine myself, this world, and the other, to be something they are not.
So, it may be wise to allow these dreams to have their life – to “go for it” and be honest about what they offer, thank them for what they did offer, and finally place them on a cloud …. and come back to the moment.
There may be only one way to find this out to be true or not. ……be honest and go for it . Let them have their life…. and see. Thanks Russell

1. “It’s always the story of a future. If you want fear on purpose, get a plan.” ~ Byron Katie

 

2. “Be still. It takes no effort to be still; it is utterly simple. When your mind is still, you have no name, no past, no relationships, no country, no spiritual attainment, no lack of spiritual attainment. There is just the presence of beingness with itself.” ~ Gangaji 

 

3. What you love prospers:  What you deeply value has your loving attention. It is nurtured, watered, and brought into fullness. It does not happen overnight. It does not happen exactly how or when you want it to. But it does come into being when conditions are right. ~ Paul Ferrini

4. We can’t change what’s going on around us until we start changing what’s going on within us. Our thoughts/thinking!! And we can just stop thinking… we START to choose thoughts that make us feel good… what thoughts are you thinking today that makes you feel bad?? is there another thought you could be thinking??? Do you need help with your thinking?? Send me an email, I am willing to help..

Thoughts and Quotes For Thanks Given.. November 29, 2013

1. If I am not grateful, I am confused. ~ Bryon Katie … Thanks Given is an ongoing daily Practice…

 

2. Close your eyes and imagine yourself living the life of your dreams. Now be very still and allow yourself to feel your inner self grow to fit that picture. Hold the image, and the feeling, for as long as you comfortably can. Consider it done. ~ Marianne Williamson

 

3. The beautiful gifts of gratitude begin at home, so today we invite a healing to happen in our own body, in our own consciousness, in our own loving heart that feels blessed to be alive.. Notice all the riches we’ve been given…  the feet that allow us to stand the legs, that allow we to walk, the stomach that allows us to eat, the lungs that allow us to breathe, the throat that allows us to speak, the mouth that allows us to taste, the nose that allows us to smell, the eyes that allow us to see and our beating heart that allows us to love… Honor them all…

Become present to the treasures of our life,  the opportunities that we have been given, the ones that have effortlessly opened up for us this year…. Reflect on our family, our kids, our partner, our friends… Look through appreciative eyes, the eyes of what’s right
the eyes of the divine… We give thanks in a way that we never have before…

Allow fear, doubt, struggle and pain to melt away in the presence of this all-loving appreciation.. We thank God/Creator/Source/Divine Love that we have a consciousness that is able to shift and transform in just a moment
Thank God that we are courageous enough to take a moment to bless our Self, to bless the Universe, to bless all those who Love and guide us and then to bless all of the world…

We send our tears of Love and Gratitude to those who are in pain, to those who are alone, to those who are confused.  We allow the heavenly vibration of Gratitude to puncture their fearful illusions and open up our hearts to what is truly divine…

Today, take this vow of deep self-Love and gratitude knowing that when we are in the presence of this kind of Love, WE – as well as all of those around us – will flourish…

Take five slow deep breaths, breathing in love, appreciation, gratitude and joy… Know that you are never alone and you will never be alone… We are all here surround with Love.

 

4. Gentler more loving dreams will come when the past has been forgiven and released – when the struggle to establish ones’ own worth and pursue separate interests has ceased – when Trust replaces all doubt and fear – and when Love, Peace and Gratitude  prevail in every moment. It is all a seeming outward picturing of an inward state of mind – all just dreaming. ~ Thanks Benny

Thoughts and Quotes for Today 7.29.13 July 29, 2013

1. It is impossible to be influenced by any person or situation outside of ourselves; therefore, it is equally impossible to blame. The thinking mind is the narrator and we (in either our agreement or disagreement) are the decision-maker.

 

2. The thinking mind is constantly telling lies… its pants are so on fire!! Thanks Pamela

 

3. 10 things you might regret in 10 years… “If only…”  These two words paired together create one of the saddest phrases in the English language.

Here are ten choices that ultimately lead to this phrase of regret, and how to elude them:

  1. Wearing a mask to impress others. – If the face you always show the world is a mask, someday there will be nothing beneath it.  Because when you spend too much time concentrating on everyone else’s perception of you, or who everyone else wants you to be, you eventually forget who you really are.  So don’t fear the judgments of others; you know in your heart who you are and what’s true to you.  You don’t have to be perfect to impress and inspire people.  Let them be impressed and inspired by how you deal with your imperfections.
  2. Letting someone else create your dreams for you. – The greatest challenge in life is discovering who you are; the second greatest is being happy with what you find.  A big part of this is your decision to stay true to your own goals and dreams.  Do you have people who disagree with you?  Good.  It means you’re standing your ground and walking your own path.  Sometimes you’ll do things considered crazy by others, but when you catch yourself excitedly losing track of time, that’s when you’ll know you’re doing the right thing. 
  3. Keeping negative company. – Don’t let someone who has a bad attitude give it to you.  Don’t let them get to you.  They can’t pull the trigger if you don’t hand them the gun.  When you remember that keeping the company of negative people is a choice, instead of an obligation, you free yourself to keep the company of compassion instead of anger, generosity instead of greed, and patience instead of anxiety.
  4. Being selfish and egotistical. – A life filled with loving deeds and good character is the best tombstone.  Those who you inspired and shared your love with will remember how you made them feel long after your time has expired.  So carve your name on hearts, not stone.  What you have done for yourself alone dies with you; what you have done for others and the world remains.
  5. Avoiding change and growth. – If you want to know your past look into your present conditions.  If you want to know your future look into your present actions.  You must let go of the old to make way for the new; the old way is gone, never to come back.  If you acknowledge this right now and take steps to address it, you will position yourself for lasting success.  The Power of Habit.
  6. Giving up when the going gets tough. – There are no failures, just results.  Even if things don’t unfold the way you had expected, don’t be disheartened or give up.  Learn what you can and move on.  The one who continues to advance one step at a time will win in the end.  Because the battle is always won far away and long before the final victory.  It’s a process that occurs with small steps, decisions, and actions that gradually build upon each other and eventually lead to that glorious moment of triumph.
  7. Trying to micromanage every little thing. – Life should be touched, not strangled.    Sometimes you’ve got to relax and let life happen without incessant worry and micromanagement.  Learn to let go a little before you squeeze too tight.  Take a deep breath.  When the dust settles and you can once again see the forest for the trees, take the next step forward.  You don’t have to know exactly where you’re going to be headed somewhere great.  Everything in life is in perfect order whether you understand it yet or not.  It just takes some time to connect all the dots.
  8. Settling for less than you deserve. – Be strong enough to let go and wise enough to wait for what you deserve.  Sometimes you have to get knocked down lower than you have ever been to stand up taller than you ever were before.  Sometimes your eyes need to be washed by your tears so you can see the possibilities in front of you with a clearer vision again.  Don’t settle.
  9. Endlessly waiting until tomorrow. – The trouble is, you always think you have more time than you do.  But one day you will wake up and there won’t be any more time to work on the things you’ve always wanted to do.  And at that point you either will have achieved the goals you set for yourself, or you will have a list of excuses for why you haven’t.  Read The Last Lecture.
  10. Being lazy and wishy-washy. – The world doesn’t owe you anything, you owe the world something.  So stop daydreaming and start DOING.  Develop a backbone, not a wishbone.  Take full responsibility for your life – take control.  You are important and you are needed.  It’s too late to sit around and wait for somebody to do something someday.  Someday is now; the somebody the world needs is YOU.
