I am often asked what I “do” or “teach” … my practice is always to live and teach Love, with that I teach the practical application of taking 100 responsibility for our own happiness… without shifting shame, blame or guilt onto anyone or anything… while we play a victim in the world we can never be happy… I CHOOSE HAPPY… We have had many teachers along the way, AND we choose what we learn from each teacher… Am I grateful for the continuing Gift I give myself each day, with this practice of Gathering the Evidence of Truth of how I want to feel today (Re-minder – our thoughts create our feelings and the only question we need to ask is “why would I choose thoughts today that make me feel bad?”)

 

1. Listening for Truth : You are responsible for what you believe, even if you choose to believe what others tell you. So don’t be afraid to question the authority of others. No one knows better than you do what you truly need. ~  Everyday Wisdom by Paul Ferrini

 

2. Today We Affirm:  It’s a new week of new Life and new possibilities for good. I am ready to happily swim, float and play in the ocean of miracles. There is nothing limiting me but my own thought and now all old limiting beliefs are washed away in the shimmering blue waves. I am not afraid to be happy today. I am not afraid of Love. I’m here to experience all the good that Life has to offer me today as I OPEN TO RECEIVE It’s gifts. I am swimming with Life today and Life is very very good. ~ Jacob Glass

 

3. The awareness of Love’s presence has nothing to do with getting someone to love you. Love is a good thing. It rests solely on giving Love, not on finding and getting it. You are Love. You are not lacking Love. If you cannot find Love within you, you are not going to find it out there. If you do find it within you, you will see it everywhere.

 

4. When I choose Peace above all else, it sets the intention of the Heart in motion and begins to allow all my self limiting beliefs to crumble..

Thoughts and Quotes for Today 8.23.13 August 23, 2013

1. Breaking the Cycle of Violence:

If you are triggered by someone, acknowledge your reactivity. Don’t react and attack. Don’t blame. Don’t project.

Don’t try to make someone else responsible for what you are thinking or feeling.
Own your thoughts and feelings totally. Say “This is about me, not about you.
This is what is happening for me right now.”  That is how the cycle of violence is broken. ~ Everyday Wisdom by Paul Ferrini

2. A willingness to be open to the Light that shows us a different way of seeing comes from recognizing that we do not know.

3. Today We Affirm:

I have two worlds to choose from each moment. I can choose the nightmare or the happy dream. In my happy dream I walk about the world giving my attention to all that vibrates with the love frequency. Everywhere I go, I see evidence of the goodness, kindness and generosity of people – the whole world is my community, my family. I am falling in love with humanity and my heart is melting with joy. Love rises up to greet me today as I walk the streets of the happy dream. ~ Jacob Glass

4. There is a sorting out that is necessary, and it can be confrontational. This is where we enter the temple and the tables of the money changers are sent flying, and the place is swept clean. It is all about the healing of the mind and the angst that is sometimes felt when our thoughts and values are sorted out – when the Truth comes to stand where there were only lies before.

5. There is the most fabulous thing that happens when we decide to be responsible for our own happiness …. we can have as much as we want…

1. “There is nothing worth holding onto any longer that keeps your peace and happiness at arm’s length. Become committed – fully committed to the experience of happiness” The Way of Mastery

 

2. True Rewards:  

Spiritual actions have significant rewards, but these rewards do not come to those who seek them. The gifts of Spirit must be offered without ulterior motives or strings attached. They must be given for the benefit of others without thought of how they might benefit self.

Gifts that are given spontaneously and in good faith return to the giver many times over. One who gives in this way lacks nothing of value and does not accumulate possessions that he does not need. ~ Everyday Wisdom by Paul Ferrini

 

3. Sure sign of spiritual maturity:

Taking responsibility no longer feels like you are taking the blame.

 

4. No one can give if he is concerned with the result of giving.  ACIM

Thoughts and Quotes for Today 7.29.13 July 29, 2013

1. It is impossible to be influenced by any person or situation outside of ourselves; therefore, it is equally impossible to blame. The thinking mind is the narrator and we (in either our agreement or disagreement) are the decision-maker.

 

2. The thinking mind is constantly telling lies… its pants are so on fire!! Thanks Pamela

 

3. 10 things you might regret in 10 years… “If only…”  These two words paired together create one of the saddest phrases in the English language.

Here are ten choices that ultimately lead to this phrase of regret, and how to elude them:

  1. Wearing a mask to impress others. – If the face you always show the world is a mask, someday there will be nothing beneath it.  Because when you spend too much time concentrating on everyone else’s perception of you, or who everyone else wants you to be, you eventually forget who you really are.  So don’t fear the judgments of others; you know in your heart who you are and what’s true to you.  You don’t have to be perfect to impress and inspire people.  Let them be impressed and inspired by how you deal with your imperfections.
  2. Letting someone else create your dreams for you. – The greatest challenge in life is discovering who you are; the second greatest is being happy with what you find.  A big part of this is your decision to stay true to your own goals and dreams.  Do you have people who disagree with you?  Good.  It means you’re standing your ground and walking your own path.  Sometimes you’ll do things considered crazy by others, but when you catch yourself excitedly losing track of time, that’s when you’ll know you’re doing the right thing. 
  3. Keeping negative company. – Don’t let someone who has a bad attitude give it to you.  Don’t let them get to you.  They can’t pull the trigger if you don’t hand them the gun.  When you remember that keeping the company of negative people is a choice, instead of an obligation, you free yourself to keep the company of compassion instead of anger, generosity instead of greed, and patience instead of anxiety.
  4. Being selfish and egotistical. – A life filled with loving deeds and good character is the best tombstone.  Those who you inspired and shared your love with will remember how you made them feel long after your time has expired.  So carve your name on hearts, not stone.  What you have done for yourself alone dies with you; what you have done for others and the world remains.
  5. Avoiding change and growth. – If you want to know your past look into your present conditions.  If you want to know your future look into your present actions.  You must let go of the old to make way for the new; the old way is gone, never to come back.  If you acknowledge this right now and take steps to address it, you will position yourself for lasting success.  The Power of Habit.
  6. Giving up when the going gets tough. – There are no failures, just results.  Even if things don’t unfold the way you had expected, don’t be disheartened or give up.  Learn what you can and move on.  The one who continues to advance one step at a time will win in the end.  Because the battle is always won far away and long before the final victory.  It’s a process that occurs with small steps, decisions, and actions that gradually build upon each other and eventually lead to that glorious moment of triumph.
  7. Trying to micromanage every little thing. – Life should be touched, not strangled.    Sometimes you’ve got to relax and let life happen without incessant worry and micromanagement.  Learn to let go a little before you squeeze too tight.  Take a deep breath.  When the dust settles and you can once again see the forest for the trees, take the next step forward.  You don’t have to know exactly where you’re going to be headed somewhere great.  Everything in life is in perfect order whether you understand it yet or not.  It just takes some time to connect all the dots.
  8. Settling for less than you deserve. – Be strong enough to let go and wise enough to wait for what you deserve.  Sometimes you have to get knocked down lower than you have ever been to stand up taller than you ever were before.  Sometimes your eyes need to be washed by your tears so you can see the possibilities in front of you with a clearer vision again.  Don’t settle.
  9. Endlessly waiting until tomorrow. – The trouble is, you always think you have more time than you do.  But one day you will wake up and there won’t be any more time to work on the things you’ve always wanted to do.  And at that point you either will have achieved the goals you set for yourself, or you will have a list of excuses for why you haven’t.  Read The Last Lecture.
  10. Being lazy and wishy-washy. – The world doesn’t owe you anything, you owe the world something.  So stop daydreaming and start DOING.  Develop a backbone, not a wishbone.  Take full responsibility for your life – take control.  You are important and you are needed.  It’s too late to sit around and wait for somebody to do something someday.  Someday is now; the somebody the world needs is YOU.

1. Celebrate the freedom within you and each person to Love without limitation. 

 

2. Independence Day speaks of freedom. With freedom comes responsibility. Today, consider that personal freedom includes the freedom to Love and be Loved including Loving ourselves exactly as we are, the freedom to be comfortable with not knowing by trusting and having faith, the freedom to be alone without being lonely, the freedom to accept the natural goodness and flow that Life offers, the freedom to start the day over any time we choose, the freedom to be open to all possibilities, the freedom to define ourselves by who we are rather than by what we do, the freedom to live deliberately rather than as a reaction to situations and circumstances. The choice is yours. How free do you want to be? We are responsible to ourselves to strive to obtain these freedoms…it is our responsibility to ourselves to do the work each day to make these freedoms a reality. ~ Connie Queen

 

3. Freedom is not given to US by anyone, we have to cultivate it ourselves.  It’s a daily Practice. ~ Thich Nhat Hanh

 

4. “Happiness is a clear mind. 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.” ~ Byron Katie

 

5. It’s my hope that you find joy in each and every day of your journey and come to love life as much as I do these days! ~ Anita Moorjani
