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...

1. “Our journey is about being more deeply involved in life and yet less attached to it.” ~  Ram Dass

 

2. If you suffer, it’s because of YOU, if you feel bliss it’s because of YOU. Nobody else is responsible – only YOU and you alone. You are your hell and your heaven too. ~ Osho

 

3. I am never talking about tomorrow, yesterday or even today.
I am pointing only to the timeless now.
Here there is not the concept or anticipation of ‘next’. 
Only the full awareness of being and presence.
No intention, no investment here. None needed. 
If there appear any plans, they are only sketches and all sketches are made in pencil. 
Everything erasable, everything changeable, and yet one’s being is neither fickle nor flimsy. 
Here.
There is a strength, but also a lightness.
There is power, but also softness.
There is firmness, but also flexibility. 
The being is like solid emptiness. 
Immeasurable.
Weightless.
Yet more solid than a mountain. Lighter than space.
Full yet emptiness. 
Sublime.
Just a very thin veil keeps that necessary sense of individuality functioning now.
Beautiful.
It need not be lost.
One’s being simply become like space moving in space.
My words are not a promise, just a pointing.
Sometimes I may say the Self is like a feeling-less feeling. 
Yet, in truth, it cannot be described at all.
The Being is without story. Just the subtlest vibration. 
That vibration itself is presence. 
That vibration and joy are one and the same. 
That vibration and peace, same-same. 
That vibration and contentment are, similarly, the same.
But paradoxically, there is witnessing to the vibration, to presence. 
Who is there? ~ Mooji

Thoughts and Quotes for Today 11.21.13 November 21, 2013

1. What you focus on will manifest. What you resist will persist because you are focusing on it. If you try to solve problems by focusing on them you will likely be perpetuating them. A good way to deal with problems is to trust in, and expect, a miracle. And then stop focusing on them. Trust is the operative factor. If there is something you need to do, you will be told and/or gently lead. Another way to deal with problems is to recognize that you have no problems.

 

2. We are manifesting things and experiences all of the time. That’s what dreamers do. Most of it is by default. Our fears, judgments, guilt and grievances have been a part of us for so long that we are not aware of what our minds are doing and manifesting. It takes some willingness and vigilance to become aware and to change these default settings. Some of these weeds must be pulled if we would experience gentler more loving dreams

 

3. Few people can grasp the Truth as it really is. They grasp it intellectually, but when it is grasped in the Heart or It grasps you in the Heart, then It grasps you so fully that there are no longer two. There is no ‘you’ and It, there is only Truth. Truth suffocates the ego.
The grip of God suffocates the ego. It cannot breathe, and merges into the One. ~ Mooji

 

4. Everything I GIVE, I GIVE to myself…  There is only One. And One is NOT TWO… Outside of me there is nothing. As I see another I see myself. Having rests on me giving. I am the only one that can deprive myself. Whatever I am experiencing I have asked for, and I am doing it to myself. And when I have had enough suffering I will learn to be patient, kind, gentle, merciful and forgiving…. And remember the ego is reading this stuff too, it will use this to induce GUILT, IF I AM RESPONSIBLE, I MUST BE GUILTY… NOPE, not one word of that is True, I am 100% responsible, and 100% INNOCENT at the same time… I CAN CHANGE MY MIND AT ANY TIME…

1. “You may believe that you are responsible for what you do, but not for what you think. The truth is that you are responsible for what you think, because it is only at this level that you can exercise choice. What you do comes from what you think. ”  ~Marianne Williamson

2. “Love and forgiveness is actually a state of mind, not something you do in certain cases. It’s about what you hold and live and the kind of truth you can say lovingly.” James Redfield

3. “I wonder how many people don’t get the one they want, but end up with the one they’re supposed to be with.”  ~ Fannie Flagg, Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe

4. Like an actor playing a role we have chosen a role for our life. But we have forgotten we can change our role any time we like.

5. Our thoughts are doorways. Loving thoughts bring US home to Love. Every room feels safe. Fearful thoughts bring US into the dungeon of fear. And every thought attracts more allies like it. Today, we can choose where we place our life-giving focus.

1. “There is a morning inside you waiting to burst open into light.” ~ Rumi

 

2. “You must learn a new way to think before you can master a new way to be.” ~ Marianne Williamson 

 

3. “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.” ~ Paul Ferrini

 

4. “I have simply stopped arguing with reality. How do I know the wind should blow? It’s blowing. How do I know this is the highest order? It’s happening. Arguing with ‘what is’ is like teaching a cat to bark. It’s not very fulfilling. I am my friend and no longer confused. The way I know that reality is good is that when I argue the point I experience tension, fear and frustration. I lose – not sometimes, but 100% of the time. It just doesn’t feel natural inside: no balance, no connection. I want reality to change? Hopeless. Let me change my thinking. Some of us mentally argue with ‘what is.’ Others of us attempt to control and change ‘what is,’ and then tell ourselves and others that we actually had something to do with any apparent change that took place. This leaves no connection or room for God in my life. In the peaceful experience of no opposition to God, I remain aware of my nature: clear, vibrant, a friend, a listener. This is the time. This is the place. This is the vastness. Right here is paradise. Always. Always. Who cares if you’re enlightened forever? Can you just get it in this moment, now?”- Katie

 

5. Throw everything away, forget about it all. Relax a little bit, give life a chance to flow its own way, unassisted by your mind and effort. Stop directing the river’s flow! Actually, being what you are is the simplest. What is difficult is to stop being what you are not. Because we wish to keep hold of our attachments. Freedom is to be free of attachments and the main attachment is to the ‘I’-self. Leave your existence to existence, stop caring for yourself so much and let the Universe care for you; it is the best mother. There has to be some trust, not just belief, because trust is intimate… ~ Mooji

1. Love is not merely a romantic exchange; but, is a unified awareness. Thanks Pamela

 

2. “Whatever you hold in your mind on a consistent basis is exactly what you will experience in your life” ~ Anthony Robbins

 

3. Self Betrayal:
Who is responsible for the fact that you choose to be with people who betray you? Are they responsible or are you? When you trust people who do not deserve your trust, you get hurt. And then, instead of seeing your error and learning from it, you blame the person who betrayed you, which shifts the responsibility inappropriately. And when that doesn’t work, you try to beat yourself up by engaging in some kind of self-destructive behavior like picking up a bottle, overeating, or having promiscuous sex. That way you get to punish yourself without taking responsibility for your role in what happened. Better to take responsibility for the decisions that you make and leave the self-crucifixion out.

If you have a pattern of attracting people who treat you unfairly or unkindly, then be more careful about whom you trust. Let people win your trust over time. Don’t give your power away to others just because you want their love and approval. Don’t depend on others to give you the love, the approval, or the safety you need. Give them to yourself and then you cannot be betrayed. ~ Everyday Wisdom by Paul Ferrini

 

4. Today, I do not struggle, strain, worry or fight my way through anything. I walk the path before me with Love and joyful patience with myself and all those I encounter today. I have Divine Discipline and Self-Control.

 

5. We are not given a good life or a bad life. It’s up to us to make it what we want

 

6. You’re only here for a short visit. Don’t hurry. Don’t worry. And be sure to smell the flowers along the way. ~ Walter C. Hagen
