When you think this… You can say this instead…

  1. Think about the future! ~ Enjoy the moment you’re in right now.
  2. Don’t do something you’ll regret! ~ In the end, we only regret the things we didn’t get to do.
  3. I wish I hadn’t done that! ~ I can’t change the past—learn and move on.
  4. Will things ever work out? ~ What’s meant to be will happen.
  5. Why did they do that? ~ I can’t control others but I can control how I react to it.
  6. Will I ever find happiness? ~ What can I be happy about right now?
  7. What’s wrong with me? ~ I am perfect exactly the way I am in this moment.

Thought for Today 10.15.14 Day 15 of Our 30 Day Commitment to Peace October 15, 2014

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 Today 10.10.13 October 10, 2013

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

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. The thoughts in our mind are guideposts to the road we choose to travel. Thanks Pamela

2. Most 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 future. ~ Anita Moorjani

3. I have made Peace with the ego thought system, saying words like “silly girl, you could choose Peace instead of this”  and I have found the ego thoughts have less and less power in life..

4. “What counts in making a happy marriage is not so much how compatible you are, but how you deal with incompatibility.” ~ George Levinger

5.  “People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life.

A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and then leave.

A soul mates purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light can get in, make you so desperate and out of control that you have to transform your life, then introduce you to your spiritual master…” -Elizabeth Gilbert ‘Eat Pray Love’
