I just want to be clear about how I and the facilitators use the term “rest.” This issue popped up recently. The term is not used as an antidote to what is arising, as a way to ignore, dismiss or get rid of what is arising. It is not a stand against the arising of thoughts, feelings, sensations, states and experiences, but rather a standing with, being with what is, whatever is it, as it is. I have blogged a lot about this and we have stated it here a lot. But just wanted to clarify.

Obviously, no one has to use the term as we do here, but it’s important that we state the way we use the term so that misinterpretations of this work are clarified.

God knows i spent years being against what arises. I took lots of drugs to accomplish that. It didn’t work. This is why a big part of our work is about being with in a loving, welcoming, gentle way, and even making room for those movements that try to stand against something. Letting even those be as they are. ~ Scott Kiloby

What I am

Thoughts and Quotes for Today 2.4.14 February 4, 2014

1. “Knowledge is learning something new every day.  Wisdom is letting go of something every day” ~ Zen Saying

2. The Infinite me already contains everything I need to navigate through life, because I am One with Universal energy. In fact, I am Universal Energy… ~ Anita Moorjani

3. “What would happen if you moved and responded with less concern about what others will think? What if you let your actions speak for themselves? What would it be like to live your truth without excusing, defending, explaining, or justifying your thoughts or actions to others?” ~ Byron Katie

4. Love Without Conditions: When you love without conditions, you support the freedom of others to choose their own way, even when you disagree with them. You trust God’s plan for their awakening. You know that they can never make a mistake that will cut them off from God’s love or from yours. From Everyday Wisdom by Paul Ferrini

5. Relationship can be the fast track to our awakening. Our buttons get pushed and our stuff comes up. Our “stuff” is anything that is not Love, which are the blocks to the awareness of Love. And in relationship we project a lot of our “stuff” onto him or her. Lots of opportunities to look at, forgive and release our stuff – stuff that could have remained hidden for a long time otherwise.

6. If I would have someone believe that they have hurt me, I am laying a guilt trip on them that can only perpetuate karmic links of attack and counter attack. This is not the way to be free. I know that no one hurt me.  I am responsible for my experiences and my reactions – no one else.

7. Relationship works best when I recognize that it is just me doing a dance with myself. The more I give, the more I get, and the only thing lacking is what I fail to give. The more angry and upset I get, the more angry and upset the other gets. The more loving and peaceful I get the more loving and peaceful the other gets. And what I see in the other is what I see and strengthen in myself.

Be Kind even if you disagree...

 

Thoughts and Quotes for Today 1.29.14 January 29, 2014

1. True Giving: True giving is an overflowing of your Love. You don’t feel that you are being depleted when you give in this way. In fact, you feel energized, because the Love you give away returns to you through the gratitude of others whom you have touched. ~Paul Ferrini

2. Bless each thought that engenders fear, gently kissing it on the forehead just as the sleeping child. Resistance cannot reveal rightmindedness.

3. The way to save a meaningless world is to just let it be meaningless. I am the one who gave it meaning when I ate of the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. That gave me strange ideas – opposites, duality, and the ability to judge. By letting it be meaningless I remove all judgment, and where there is no judgment there is no world.

4. Today We Affirm: I am living in a Spiritual Universe, formed from loving Thought. My thought is creative and is creating my world today. Today I choose grateful, joyous, and loving thoughts as I know that these thoughts will be reflected back to me. I do not have to design the ways and means for this is an Intelligent Universe that knows HOW and when and where. My part is to align myself with my greater good as I RELAX and allow in calm expectancy – my heart and mind open and receptive. This is a day of divine fulfillment and limitless possibilities for good. I happily participate as I allow my Creative Imagination to vision only the best knowing there is no need to worry or rush. The Universe has perfect timing and knows where to find me. My faith and belief in the good are growing and expanding daily. There is no opposite to this Divine Power and Presence. All is well in me and in my world.

5. “Faith is the bird that feels the light and sings when the dawn is still dark.” ~ Tagore. Faith represents a deep Trust that speaks to me when i lose sight of who i am in Truth. Thanks Diederik

1. “The light of the face comes from the candle of the Spirit.” ~ Rumi

2. “Do not think that fear is the escape from fear.” ~ A Course in Miracles

3. Imaginary Limits: The limits you create will be real to you until you learn to step beyond them.  Then they will cease to be real. Then, you will look back at the reality you used to inhabit wondering how you were able to stand its narrow confines. ~ Paul Ferrini

4. Empowerment comes from letting go of victim mentality and assuming full responsibility for everything that seems to happen to us. This is not about accepting guilt or self-blame. It is about learning to make different choices that lead to gentler more loving dreams.

5. “Remind everyone close to you to be themselves, and tell them that you love them just the way they are! They’re perfect….and so are you. There’s nothing not to love. Most suffering stems from feeling “less than.” You aren’t less than anything or anyone. You are complete.” ~ Anita Moorjani

be yourself

1. “To be your Self in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.” Ralph Waldo Emerson 

 

2. As soon as we recognize our mistake, we have begun to correct it. To see the mistake means we have become willing to admit responsibility and allowed our mind to start to heal from the error.

 

3. If we look closely, we will see that most of the judgments we have don’t really make US happy anyway!!! 

 

4. “At any moment, you have a choice, that either leads you closer to your spirit or further away from it. Letting go gives us freedom, and freedom is the only condition for happiness. If, in our heart, we still cling to anything – anger, anxiety, or possessions – we cannot be free.” ~Thich Nhat Hanh~

 

5. “Give us permission through you, to have a flaw. When you hide your flaws, you teach us to do that. We are waiting for one teacher, just one, to give us permission to be who we are now, so that we can all come to know that that’s what is normal for us. You appear as this now, that is such a gift to give. The pain is in withholding it. Who else is going to give us permission to be free, if not you? Do it for your own sake, and we will follow. We’re a reflection of your thinking, and when you free yourself, we all get free.” Byron Katie.

Good Morning Precious One, many already know, I am traveling for 10 days… although I am still “gathering the evidence each morning” I thought I would re-post an entire blog today from Jacob Glass, if you don’t know Jacob yet, you might want to check him out, he by far has been my greatest teacher… I LOVE LOVE LOVE Jacob, he kicked my spiritual BS ass… 

HUMBLE, HUMBLE, HUMBLE by Jacob Glass

 
“Prayer is a way to true humility . . .  Humility brings peace because it does not claim that you
must rule the universe, nor judge all things as you would have them be.” 
– A Course in Miracles

Humility is not humiliation. These are two very different things which seem to be very confused in our current culture in much the same way that confidence and arrogance get confused. To be humble in the right sense is to recognize that “of myself I can do nothing” while at the same time recognizing that by our willingness miraculous things can be accomplished through us, by that Greater Power. 
 
This is why I love the teachings of the Tao te Ching. It is a path of endless humility, and therefore a path of endless peace and serenity. It is truly the extreme opposite of the ego-dominated world systems which are all about being special, standing out from the crowd, competing against others in order to WIN something, which only leads to more competition in order to keep your  name out there.
 
 Everything we strive and struggle to get, we will usually have to struggle and strive to keep and maintain.  What we had to “get” we usually have to “keep.”  This is why I love the Course lesson of “I seek but what belongs to me in truth.” This is a way of saying, I only want what has been given me by the Grace of God – I only want what is MY Divine Inheritance, not what the person next to me has – that is just an appearance anyhow. 
 

My most frequent daily prayer is extremely simple, and it is this: “Lord, make joyful use of me today. You know how to do it best – I do not. I’ll be busy choosing happiness, so you know where to find me and how to best use me. Go for it.”
 
This is a RADICAL shift in the way we approach our daily life. It IS the recognition that we are not here to get, nor to sacrifice. We are here to extend, to create, to enjoy. But as we say, it often takes great effort to arrive at effortlessness. And the effort is all of our mental work as we increase our willingness to ALLOW Life to work rather than “making” it work. We take control of guiding our minds to the downstream thoughts rather than fighting and swimming against the current. We learn how to truly RELAX and LET GO  – and in the letting go, we are at last opening to receive what has already been given. We are no longer trying to control the universe nor decide what “should” or “shouldn’t” be happening. We let God BE God, and we let ourselves be the Child of God. 
 
If you want a day free of stressful thinking and suffering today, practice true humility throughout the day. To be humble, is to let go of defensiveness, let go of impressing anyone, let go of what others think or say about you, let go of protecting what you think you have or have accomplished. You simply show up, prepared, on time, doing what you said you would do, with a good attitude. And all the rest you leave to God to handle as you watch the miracles of Grace unfold before and through you. Pretty good gig, actually.

Quotes on Living in the Now and Releasing the past August 7, 2013

Filed under: Love — C. Faith Holland @ 2:00 pm

1. “A man often suffer the most by suffering what he fears but that never show up.” ~  Joost van den Vondel?

 

2. Releasing Past and Future:
Our greatest spiritual challenge is to be happy in this moment. We can’t be happy if we are upset about something that happened in the past or worried about achieving some future outcome. We can be happy only when our energy is invested in working with what is happening here and now. ~ Everyday Wisdom by Paul Ferrini

 

3. For those with a sincere and urgent wish to be liberated, I tell them, ‘Leave everything, starting from this moment.’

Drop all notions about future, past, present — leave everything aside entirely. Don’t save anything or spare any favorite thought or feeling. Such an attitude will bring you a state of unmixed presence whereby all personal questions, doubts and concerns will hold no power. Only like this will you be able to gauge the real fickleness of personality along with its baggage of psychological obsessions. And see if you can fully examine what is now without your add-ons, without your projections, because they are not only myths but they exhaust your being and make you tired and unhappy.

Allow yourself to be empty and experience your fundamental nature free from imagination, fantasy and the hypnosis of conditioning.

When you allow yourself to be empty, visitors show up. They may say, ‘You are going to be stupid,’ or ‘How are you going to take care of your life?’ But just ignore it and discover your peace in this moment. I want to meet a human being who is at peace, not in pieces. ~ Mooji

 

4. When I was willing to LET GO of what I wanted, I received what was truly mine. I’ve realized the latter is always the greater gift. ~ Anita Moorjani

Let go of our mind and dance
