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 is no security for those who seek it outside of themselves. I am Love, as long as I seek it from you, I can’t know that… ~ Bryon Katie

 

2. An “enemy” presents you with nothing but the opportunity to change your mind.

 

3. We can choose to hold a white-knuckled, painful death grip on the past; yet, after all the pain and numbness subsists, we can open our hands and see nothing was ever there to grip onto.   People will say, “Well, I have to work on my goals,” or, “I have to work on my visualization.” And we want you to think more about holding the vision because it is pleasurable to hold the vision, not because you’re trying to make the vision work in order to get to some place that you’re not now standing. “How much should I work?” We would say, work in the sense of joyously moving forward. ~Abraham

 

4. The Power of Light: Light does not resist or avoid darkness.  It merely includes it, welcomes it.  Thus, darkness disappears into the light.  Light is not afraid of the shadow for it knows the appearance of the shadow is the first sign of illumination.  When the shadow cannot provoke our fear, it has no power to undermine us. ~ Paul Ferrini

1. Perceptions: Learning the lessons life brings takes a great deal of patience and compassion. We need to realize that it isn’t easy for us to change how we perceive reality. If it was, we wouldn’t need so many lessons. Most of our lessons do not ask us to change ourselves, others or the world. They ask us to change our perception of ourselves, other people, and the world around us. ~ Paul Ferrini

 

2. Don’t be sad or afraid. Play some beautiful music. Let this moment be the only time there is. Know there is nothing to fear – reality is safe, sure and kind – you are sustained by the love of God, and you cannot be threatened in any way. Raise your arms to heaven and open like a blossom to the love and light that would fill you, heal you, and sweep your sadness away.

 

3. Don’t worry that your life is turning upside down. How do you know that the side you are used to is better than the one to come? ~ Rumi

 

4. Affirm, Believe, Relax, Receive….
