There was a farmer who grew excellent quality corn. Every year he won the award for the best grown corn. One year a newspaper reporter interviewed him and learned something interesting about how he grew it. The reporter discovered that the farmer shared his seed corn with his neighbors. “How can you afford to share your best seed corn with your neighbors when they are entering corn in competition with yours each year?” the reporter asked.

“Why sir,” said the farmer, “Didn’t you know? The wind picks up pollen from the ripening corn and swirls it from field to field. If my neighbors grow inferior corn, cross-pollination will steadily degrade the quality of my corn. If I am to grow good corn, I must help my neighbors grow good corn.”

So is with our lives… Those who want to live meaningfully and well must help enrich the lives of others, for the value of a life is measured by the lives it touches. And those who choose to be happy must help others find happiness, for the welfare of each is bound up with the welfare of all…

Funny thing is, the self that prays for help is sure to lose in the end, and the Self that remains never knew of a need for help.

1. “Fear is the cheapest room in the house. I would like to see you living in better conditions.” ~ Hafiz.

 

2. Joy unwraps the gift in every moment.

 

3. “Your Brother’s Call for Help: You can walk on one leg, but it is not as efficient as walking on two.  You can live a solitary life, but you won’t grow as much spiritually as you will if you interact with others. To be alone is essential, but never sufficient. No matter how solitary you become, you cannot escape your brother’s call for help. To try to do so is foolish. For it is his call for help that forces you to look at your own anger, fear and guilt.” ~ Paul Ferrini

 

4. Share of your Self not through mere accomplishments; but by simply being a witness for All Love existing through and beyond you.

 

5. Seek not to change the world, but choose to change your mind about the world. ~ACIM

 

6. That which thinks that there is something that it needs to get (a person, thing, situation or event) for its fulfillment, completion and happiness is ego. Spirit (the reality of US) is eternally whole and its joy is complete – Spirit is not aware of a need to get ANYTHING. What does EVERYTHING need?

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. I am worthy of all the good things in Life.

2. “The only thing you need to learn is that you already are what you’re seeking to attain. Just express your uniqueness fearlessly, with abandon! That’s why you’re made the way you are, and that’s why you’re here in the physical world.” ~ Anita Moorjani

3. Staying With Our Feelings: Being in a place of peace may be the goal, but if we want to get there we have to engage in the process of being with ourselves when we are not at peace. When we are angry or sad, we usually try to push our feelings away. Or we try to analyze them, which amounts to the same thing. Most of us are looking for the rocketship to heaven. We want to go from feeling pain to feeling ecstasy without having to change buses. We have to learn that it is better to take step one in good faith, than to try to leapfrog to step twenty-six on the first attempt. It takes courage to stay with what we are feeling. And it takes a lot of practice before we can learn to do it effectively. But what is the alternative? If we deny or intellectualize our feelings, we will squander the opportunity they provide us for real transformation. ~ Paul Ferrini

4. Forgiveness is only a struggle to the mind that sees grievances as more valuable or justified than peace. Release all reason for judgment and flow freely by.

don't over think

1. Take a step of ultimate bravery.. dare to look within and see only grandeur! Thanks Pamela

 

2. “There is no reality except the one contained within us. That is why so many people live such an unreal life. They take the images outside of them for reality and never allow the world within to assert itself.” ― Hermann Hesse

 

3. You’re not helping anybody by being miserable. Regardless of your philosophical beliefs, the fact remains that you were born and you are going to die. During the time in between, you get to choose whether or not you want to enjoy the experience. Events don’t determine whether or not you’re going to be happy. They’re just events. You determine whether or not you’re going to be happy. You can be happy just to be alive. You can be happy having all these things happen to you, and then be happy to die. If you can live this way, your heart will be so open and your Spirit will be so free, that you will soar up to the heavens. ~ The Untethered Soul

 

4. Reality is safe and sure and kind. The world that we see does not exist. We are not a body and there is no death. We are eternal Spirit, perfect even as our creator/source is perfect and eternal. Love is all that can be given or received, and we are lacking nothing. We cannot be threatened in any way. There is nothing to fear.

“Can you imagine what it means to have no cares, no worries, no anxieties but merely to be perfectly calm and quiet all the time? Yet that is what time is for; to learn just that and nothing more.”

“What is time without a past and future? It has taken time to misguide you so completely, but it takes no time at all to be what you are.”

“Take this very instant, now, and think of it as all there is of time. Nothing can reach you here out of the past, and it is here that you are completely absolved and completely free and wholly without condemnation. From this holy instant wherein holiness was born again you will go forth in time without fear, and with no sense of change with time.” – ACIM

 

Love feels free
