1. Form is not a constant but a result. Form is the result of belief. – ACOL

2. Nothing in the world can bother you as much as your own mind, I tell you. In fact, others seem to be bothering you, but it’s not others, it is your mind. ~ Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

3. You have more harmony points with every person on the planet than you have disharmony points, because there is much more of you that is in harmony with your Core than you realize or that most of you allow. The closer you come to being in harmony with your Source Energy, the more in harmony you are with each other. When you think about other people and what they think of you, do you understand that what they think of you has very little to do with what you are? It has mostly to do with the habits of thought that they have developed. It has more to do with them as thinkers than it does with you as the subject of their thought. If nothing is more important to you than that you feel good, you can form a fantasy about someone who is in your life and they will begin to modify to meet your fantasy, because Law of Attraction is a very powerful thing.  ~ Abraham-Hicks

4. There are two things that other people can’t and won’t live up to: YOUR VALUES AND YOUR FANTASIES Don’t fall into the illusion that anyone else is obligated to live according to what’s important to you in any way or at any time, even when they say they intend to. If they do, be grateful. BUT if they don’t, be unsurprised; they’re just being true to themselves and making decisions accordingly.” The Heart of Love by Dr John Demartini

5. From A YEAR OF MIRACLES: I AM OPEN TO THINGS BEING DIFFERENT THAN THEY WERE. Nothing needs to be as it was. The first step in creating the new is dropping the notion that what already exists is inevitable going forward . Today I am open to new possibilities, allowing the universe to move through me in creating new patterns of goodness for myself and others. I will not hold on to thoughts that bind me to the limits of my past.

Be YOU

Thoughts and Quotes on Enlightenment and illusion for Today 2.23.14 February 23, 2014

1. My speaking is meant to shake you awake, not to tell you how to dream better. – Adyashanti  

 

2. If you see the illusion you are enlightened, but if you think that you are enlightened, you are in the illusion. – Papaji

 

3. Truth is not just about what we say…it is the realization that what we’ve created, individually or collectively, is illusion. As we awaken, truth gets revealed to us…It sometimes rocks our “here and now” existence, creates feelings of pain or loss in the moment…but it also sets us free. When we free ourselves from the illusions, we can return to our own power.

 

4. Do not think that enlightenment is going to make you special, it’s not. If you feel special in any way, then enlightenment has not occurred. I meet a lot of people who think they are enlightened and awake simply because they have had a very moving spiritual experience. They wear their enlightenment on their sleeve like a badge of honor. They sit among friends and talk about how awake they are while sipping coffee at a cafe. The funny thing about enlightenment is that when it is authentic, there is no one to claim it. Enlightenment is very ordinary; it is nothing special. Rather than making you more special, it is going to make you less special. It plants you right in the center of a wonderful humility and innocence. Everyone else may or may not call you enlightened, but when you are enlightened the whole notion of enlightenment and someone who is enlightened is a big joke. I use the word enlightenment all the time; not to point you toward it but to point you beyond it. Do not get stuck in enlightenment. – Adyashanti

 

5. Today We Affirm:  In my world, there is magic even in the mundane. I am not looking for special people or special moments. This moment is enough and I am sufficient for the moment. By Grace, I see my world with loving gentle eyes and I allow myself to be just as I am, and just as I am not. Therefore, I release all others to be just as they are. I will not push or bully myself today but instead I walk with the Mighty Ones Who guide me down the gentle paths of freedom, love and peace. ~ Jacob Glass

Thoughts and Quotes for Today 1.2.14 January 2, 2014

1. “The very desire to be certain,to be secure, is the beginning of bondage. It’s only when the mind is not caught in the net of certainty, and is not seeking certainty, that it is in a state of discovery.” ~ Krishnamurti.

 The desire for ‘security’ is natural: it is the desire to return to Oneness. The ego’s response to that desire is where the challenge lies: it will tell me to seek for certainty in the illusion, any illusion. Anywhere but where it can be found: in the relinquishment of my self made identity. Thanks Diederik

 

2. Anyone can be a miracle-worker — anyone who chooses to be. Anyone can hear the sound of an ancient melody that calls to all of us, beckoning us to remember who we Truly are and what power we have. ~ Marianne Williamson

 

3. Unity Consciousness: Sometimes words get so confusing you just have to toss them away and get quiet. It doesn’t matter what you call it when you get quiet. Call it being. Call it witnessing. Call it time-out. The idea is to sink down beneath the layer of mind that wants to define everything and know what to expect from life before it happens. 

Unity consciousness is not dualistic or exclusive. In unity consciousness, black and white are mutually valid assumptions, and there are infinite shades of gray. People ask for a step by step approach to unity consciousness, but all you can give them is step one: get quiet. Turn your attention inward. Breathe and be. The rest will take care of itself. ~ Paul Ferrini

 

4. “Many who would like to heal themselves want to know how to go about things like “trusting in your own healing,” “letting go and allowing healing,” and “accessing your place of healing.” Are these platitudes of any use to the average person? People who want to heal their bodies need to know how to put such things into practice.

A: I don’t like to advocate a set methodology, instructions, or anything like that, because if I do, I’m only creating more dogma, and the whole point is to be free of that. I do suggest, however, not viewing illness or symptoms as “something to be gotten rid of,” like an enemy. This a fear based reaction. For me, the appearance of these symptoms is my body’s way of trying to heal me. I know that if I try to eliminate the illness with an adversarial attitude, I end up doing the opposite, antagonizing it and embedding myself deeper into the illness mind-set. 

This doesn’t necessarily mean that you don’t go and see a doctor. I’m purely referring to how I view disease or physical manifestations of the body. The idea is not to obsess about it and have your days revolve around doing things for the sole purpose of getting rid of the illness. It’s actually far more productive to distract yourself and stay occupied with activities that stimulate you in a positive, creative way. 

As far as I could, I’d try to free myself from needing my health to be a certain way in order to find happiness and just create joy in the moment, as though I were already healthy. Living in the present means not carrying any emotional baggage from one segment of time into the next. Every instant is unique and can’t be replicated. It’s our choice whether to carry our fears with us, keeping us stuck in illness. 

You don’t have to be a spiritual guru or anything. Just make the most of every minute, living it to the fullest and doing things that make you happy, whether you have a month to live or 100 years.” ~ Anita Moorjani

1. “There are no new stressful thoughts. They’re all recycled.” – Byron Katie

 

2. It’s time to stop trying to get from another person what we are unwilling to give ourselves.

 

3. It is not death that sets us free. It is only the truth that will set us free. Killing the body will not heal the mind that makes the mistake of identifying with an illusion. That mind will simply make another illusion with which to identify.

 

4. We cannot pray our way out of a problems that we continue to “behave” our way into.  Become can be vigilant that we do not write with one hand and then erase it with the other. Affirm then stand firm.

 

5. Today We Affirm:  Life is to be savored and enjoyed! I am lining up with my highest good and adjusting my attitude as I tune to JOY. I allow happy experiences to flow on my path this week as I focus on laughing away all fear thoughts while I walk with ease through the open doors.

 

Peace of mind is internal

1. An exercise in letting go need not be painful as long as it is filled with the willingness to see with an Open Heart.

2. “People are afraid to be nothing. But being nothing is only one aspect of it. Not only is it nothing to be afraid of, it’s a cause for celebration. Without your stressful story, there is no stress — obviously! When you don’t believe your thoughts, there’s only laughter and peace. There are names for a place like that. I call it heaven. And how can people know what nothingness is while they still believe what they think? ‘Something is better than nothing’ — can you absolutely know that that’s true?” – Byron Katie

3. “You can’t make a wrong decision, you can only experience the story arising about how you did it. I like to ask, “Are you breathing yourself?” No? Well, maybe you’re not thinking yourself or making decisions either. Maybe it doesn’t move until it moves, like a breath, like the wind. And you tell the story of how you are doing it to keep yourself from the awareness you are nature, flowing perfectly.” ~ Byron Katie

4. Whenever I find myself having to correct another, I have been pulled out of my own business. This is just another ego ploy to make me right and another wrong, thus keeping this illusion of separation going…

1. As I walked out the door toward the gate that would lead to my freedom, I know if I didn’t leave my bitterness and hatred behind, I’d still be in prison.” ~ Nelson Mandela 

 

2. Our capacity to make Peace with another person and the world depends very much on our capacity to make Peace with ourselves… Thich Nhat Hanh

 

3. “Every moment you have a choice, regardless of what has happened before. Choose right now to move forward, positively and confidently into your incredible future.” ~ Unknown

 

4. “If we learn to open our hearts, anyone, including the people who drive us crazy, can be our teacher.” ~ Pema Chödrön  (We can be grateful for everyone.)

 

5. “We create suffering, but cannot really create the release of that suffering. We can simply stop what we are creating, not in the future, in this very moment. Just stop.” ~ Gangaji

 

6. If I feel defensive or fearful – if I feel anything other than love and peace, then I have identified with an illusion. I am not interested in learning how to defend the illusion. I am interested in learning and teaching how to let the fear go so that I can know the Love and Peace.
