1. Getting “Real” or “Genuine”  means I don’t have an image to maintain (no more image management). I don’t care about fitting in, and I don’t care what the popular opinion is of the society we live in. I live what feels “right” for me, even if it appears to be “weird”.

 

2. Life is not meant to be serious. Laughter is even more uplifting and healing than any form of prayer, meditation or chanting. ~ Anita Moorjani

 

3. There are many ways of seeing this work. One is to take 100% responsibility for all that happens.
If i do not KNOW that everything is FOR me, then that way of seeing invokes guilt: i am responsible, this sucks … ergo: i must be guilty…. a gentler way of seeing is to say that, yes, this happened, and yes, i think this sucks, AND somehow it must be for me (faith based position) so I have to keep looking at it with the help of the holy Spirit to see it differently. I have to power to interpret. who is the ‘i’ interpreting? the small ‘i’ ego self or the capital I higher Self? I will know whose opinion I asked by how i feel.

 

4. “Reason is powerless in the expression of Love.” ― Rumi

1. “The Work is not about shame and blame. It’s not about proving that you are the one in the wrong or forcing yourself to believe that someone else is in the right. The power of the turnaround lies in the discovery that everything you think you see on the outside is really a projection of your own mind. Everything is a mirror image of your own thinking. Once you have learned to go in for your own answers and opened yourself up to the turnarounds, you’ll experience this for yourself. In discovering the innocence of the person you judged, you’ll come to recognize your own innocence.” ~ Byron Katie

 

2. The limitless magnitude of the reality of our Self is an experience that is far greater and more real than the little, limited body/ego experience that is the temporal human condition. Understanding this is not necessary, but it is necessary that we experience it.

 

3. “Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, or worn. It is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace & gratitude.” – Denis Waitley

 

4. “There’s a difference between knowing the path and walking the path.” ~ Morpheus, The Matrix

1. All blame is a waste of time. No matter how much fault you find with another, and regardless of how much you blame him, it will not change you. The only thing blame does is to keep the focus off you when you are looking for external reasons to explain your unhappiness or frustration. You may succeed in making another feel guilty about something by blaming him, but you won’t succeed in changing whatever it is about you that is making you unhappy. ~  Wayne Dyer

2. Today We Affirm:  I walk in gentle peace and gratitude today. There is nothing for me to fight against, nothing for me to strive after or to manipulate. I align myself with the heartbeat of the Great Mother Tao and allow myself to be carried downstream. I place the past, present and future in Her hands as I breathe in Love and breathe out kindness. Goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my Life as I release everyone into Divine Care and entrust them to Source’s ministering Angels.

Today, miracles light my way on the gentle pathways of peace. May I be joyfully used by Love to brighten the world as I surrender into Love, Joy, Peace and Grace.

3. You are that which you are seeking. ~ St. Francis
4. If you think you’re free, there’s no escape possible. -Ram Dass …. Society sells an idea of what freedom is, what choices we have, and the right we have to make those choices, but it isn’t until I realize I am trapped in the cell of my own beliefs I will have taken my first step toward true freedom. Choose Again.

5. “We are like the little branch that quivers during a storm, doubting our strength and forgetting we are the tree—deeply rooted to withstand all life’s upheavals.” ~ Dodinsky

Let go and Trust

1. “A clear and sane mind knows how to live, how to work, what e-mails to send,
what phone calls to make, and what to do to create what it wants without fear. ” – Katie

 

2. The Love that we ARE far outshines the thoughts that we think or the words that we speak.

 

3. Love trumps anything that this world has to offer. Love is not about bodies. Love is content and NOT form. It is Love itself that calls to US from beyond this world. And when our heartstrings start to sing nothing else seems to matter. May you always be IN Love, and let Love be IN you.

 

4. I begin every day of my life with an expression of gratitude. And so today, I want to begin by saying “thank you” to you.  

Thank you, Thank You, THANK YOU…. 

5. Let your Light SHINE bright…

1. Finding the Light Within: You are the light of the world, but you do not know it because you have not looked deeply enough into your own heart. Take a moment to look. Take a moment to find the light that dances in dark night within. 

See those deep colors penetrating the black clouds, the hands of light reaching to the horizon. Until you can see the light in yourself you cannot bring it to the world. ~ Everyday Wisdom by Paul Ferrini


2. When I am unhappy and fearful – when I experience pain and suffering of any kind, it is only because I listened to the lies of the ego and allowed myself to believe in illusions.

3.  Rampages of Appreciation by Jacob Glass

T H E    P O W E R   O F   N O W 

A consciousness of wanting, creates a consciousness of greater and greater wanting. A Gratitude Consciousness creates more and more appreciation and gratitude. The ego is only interested in loss and what is not here, with small breaks during which it is focused on what it would like to get rid of. It is yet another major way that the ego has plans to ruin your joy in THIS moment.

Gratitude is the fastest way to abundance NOW because it has the audacity to be grateful even in times that the ego finds totally unacceptable. Gratitude is perhaps the simplest and fastest neutralizer of fear and worry. It is a way to take back the power of now because gratitude is experienced in the now. Too often, we don’t know what we’ve got til it’s gone, as the song says. The pattern this sets up is, dissatisfied in the present, regretful about the past, worried about the future. This is  how ego steals our joy.

Additionally, gratitude clears the way for love. The Course says, “for can love be far behind a grateful heart and thankful mind?” The more grateful we are, the more loving we tend to become. The more ungrateful we are, the harder and more critical we become. Abraham talks about going on “rampages of appreciation” each day as a way to quickly move up the emotional/vibrational scale. This is also a major ABUNDANCE PRACTICE. True abundance is not about the endless acquisition of more and more things and experiences – it is fully experiencing and savoring whatever is already here. You might not even be aware of how truly wealthy and abudnant you are in this moment because you are so focused on some imaginary future moment.

Neutralize all fear, worry and darkness today with frequent rampages of appreciation. You may even want to get a journal and start to LITERALLY list and COUNT your blessings each month. Make it a game with yourself in which you try to beat your record each month. These are the games that happy children play.

 

Only Purpose be your Self

1.“In today’s rush we all think too much, seek too much, want too much and forget about the joy of just Being.” ~ Eckhart Tolle

 

2. “If I want to be loved as I am, I have to be willing to love others as they are.” ~ Louise Hay 

3. “Find ecstasy within yourself. It is not out there. It is your innermost flowering. The one you are looking for is you.”  ~ Osho

 

4. Everyday is a blessing, and in each moment there are many things that we can be grateful for. The world opens up to us when we live in a space of gratitude. In essence, gratitude has a snowball effect. When we are appreciative and express that gratitude, the universe glows a bit brighter and showers us with even more blessings. 

There is always something to be grateful for, even when life seems hard. When times are tough, whether we are having a bad day or stuck in what may feel like an endless rut, it can be difficult to take the time to feel grateful. Yet, that is when gratitude can be most important. If we can look at our lives, during periods of challenge, and find something to be grateful for, then we can transform our realities in an instant. There are blessings to be found everywhere. When we are focusing on what is negative, our abundance can be easy to miss. Instead, choosing to find what already exists in our lives that we can appreciate can change what we see in our world. We start to notice one blessing, and then another. 

When we constantly choose to be grateful, we notice that every breath is a miracle and each smile becomes a gift. We begin to understand that difficulties are also invaluable lessons. The sun is always shining for us when we are grateful, even if it is hidden behind clouds on a rainy day. A simple sandwich becomes a feast, and a trinket is transformed into a treasure. Living in a state of gratitude allows us to spread our abundance because that is the energy that we emanate from our beings. Because the world reflects back to us what we embody, the additional blessings that inevitably flow our way give us even more to be grateful for. The universe wants to shower us with blessings. The more we appreciate life, the more life appreciates and bestows us with more goodness. ~ Madisyn Taylor
