Review and Renew With Gratitude:

No matter what my current reality is – no matter how frustrating, painful, threatening or terrifying it is in the moment – there is one thing I know I can count on: THE MAJORITY OF LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL AND WORKS. My problem, and I’m sure this happens to others, is that in times of perceived trouble, I don;t always see the beauty. It’s not that it isn’t there, it’s just that I don’t see through the morass of my own reality to the underlying perfection that always resides.

It amazes me how situation-centric and myopic I can be about distressing things; how I can sit in the midst of beauty and focus entirely as what I view as uncomfortable. Even as I write this, an issue in my life is weighing heavily on me, and I know that if I intend to live aware and grateful, I must take steps to right this situation. This does not mean I need to fix it, rectify it or reason through it (although all of those things will eventually be required). What it means is that I need to put it into perspective with everything else. The sun still shines, the leaves are budding, I am healthy and vibrant, my life is good and at times such as these, it is an absolute necessity to bring my focus to the whole of my life and not just one isolated circumstance.

Now is the time to review and renew that old mantra I was taught as a child to use as a tool. Now is the time to “STOP, LOOK AND LISTEN.” Stop obsessing on a situation, stop justifying my stance, stop replaying it over and over and stop complaining about it. Look around. Look at the beauty, the vibrancy, the abundance, the light. And listen – listen to that inner voice that calls forward the gift of life, being and joy. Love, peace, beauty, energy, abundance and light surround me and await my recognition of it. Suddenly the situation – whether health, wealth, creative expression or relationship – takes on the proportion it deserves instead of the bulk I have bestowed upon it. Suddenly life is filled yet again with beauty. The situation did not change; my perspective changed, and my perspective is what creates the quality of my life experience. BLESSINGS. ~Dr. Kenn Gordon ~ Science of Mind

“You are not a drop in the ocean. You are the entire ocean, in a drop.” ~ Rumi

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” ~ Marianne Williamson – Return to Love

Parents don’t want their children to make the wrong decisions, so they don’t allow them to make the decision. And then the child becomes dependent, and then the parent resents that, and it gets off into a blameful thing early on. If you are encouraging children to do all that they can do — and not squelching the natural eagerness that is within them, so that they can shine and thrive and show you and themselves how good they are at adapting to physical experience — then everyone wins. -Abraham Hicks

1. “I love people who make me laugh. I honestly think it’s the thing I like most, to laugh. It cures a multitude of ills. It’s probably the most important thing in a person.” ~ Audrey Hepburn  … Laughing infuses every single cell in our body with Love.

 

2. Sometimes your only available transportation is a Leap of Faith. ~ Margaret Shepard

 

3. To love is to recognize yourself in another. ~ Eckhart Tolle

 

4. Love is not selective, just as the light of the sun is not selective. It does not make one person special. It is not exclusive. Exclusivity is not the love of God but the “love” of ego. However, the intensity with which true love is felt can vary. There may be one person who reflects your love back to you more clearly and more intensely than others, and if that person feels the same toward you, it can be said that you are in a love relationship with him or her. The bond that connects you with that person is the same bond that connects you with the person sitting next to you on a bus, or with a bird, a tree, a flower. Only the degree of intensity with which it is felt differs. ~ Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now

 

5. “I’ve heard people say that they cling to their painful thoughts because they’re afraid that without them they wouldn’t be activists for peace. “If I feel peaceful,” they say, “why would I bother taking action at all? My answer is  “Because that’s what Love does.” To think that we need sadness or outrage to motivate us to do what’s right is insane. As if the clearer and happier you get, the less kind you become. As if when someone finds freedom, she just sits around all day wiith drool running down her chin. My experience is the opposite. Love is action.” ~ Byron Katie

 

6. When you say, I enjoy doing this or that, it is really a misperception. It makes it appear that the joy comes from what you do, but that is not the case. Joy does not come from what you do, it flows into what you do and thus into this world from deep within you. The misperception that joy comes from what you do is normal, and it is also dangerous, because it creates the belief that joy is something that can be derived from something else, such as an activity or thing. You then look to the world to bring you joy, happiness. But it cannot do that. This is why many people live in constant frustration. The world is not giving them what they think they need. ~  Eckhart Tolle

Let your Light Shine

1. Peace is found within oneself because of a choice made regardless of outside circumstances. Thanks Fred

 

2. There is a place in US that truly never stops shining. Beautiful people shine on the inside. Look for the beauty in everything you encounter today, remember this acceptance to one self is a path to true beauty on the inside. Be an example today of the beautiful person you truly ARE. We can go out into the world and Shine no matter what our circumstance are.

 

3. Your life IS your spiritual path: Don’t be quick to abandon it for promises of bigger and better experiences. You are getting exactly the experiences that you need to grow. Your growth and transformation intensify when you fully embrace the situations and relationships at hand. ~  Paul Ferrini

 

4. Impatience in all our Relationships: When either of US are impatient, we do our best to remember that we really are fearful and hence in a hurry. We are learning that our real home is Love, which is a reality where there is NO HURRYING. When we are in the reality of Love, we are not fearful and we are not anxious. For example, if someone is going to slow on the highway and we have an important appointment, we decide to tell ourselves that the driver in front of us is just giving us a lesson in patience. In doing this we arrive at our appointment FULL OF LOVE and PEACE rather than being anxious and pissed off.

1. “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. ” – Katie

 

2. The Love that we ARE far outshines the thoughts that we think or the words that we speak.

 

3. Love trumps anything that this world has to offer. Love is not about bodies. Love is content and NOT form. It is Love itself that calls to US from beyond this world. And when our heartstrings start to sing nothing else seems to matter. May you always be IN Love, and let Love be IN you.

 

4. I begin every day of my life with an expression of gratitude. And so today, I want to begin by saying “thank you” to you.  

Thank you, Thank You, THANK YOU…. 

5. Let your Light SHINE bright…

1. Each Day is like a blank canvas. Onto which we can paint anything we desire. ~ Anita Moorjani

2. Simply realize where you come from: this is the essence of wisdom. ~ Tao Te Ching

3. There are some who blame others for everything. And then there are some who blame themselves for everything. There’s really no difference. If you are blaming, then you are a victim. It all just strengthens false ego identification – the idea that you are a thing that you are not.

4. The Soul has been given its own ears to hear things that the mind does not understand. ~ Rumi

5. There’s never a need to worry that someone will outshine us. It’s not a competition. We all need to shine the brightest we can in our own unique way. It’s not possible for there to be too much Light in this world. SHINE and LET SHINE…..
