There was a farmer who grew excellent quality corn. Every year he won the award for the best grown corn. One year a newspaper reporter interviewed him and learned something interesting about how he grew it. The reporter discovered that the farmer shared his seed corn with his neighbors. “How can you afford to share your best seed corn with your neighbors when they are entering corn in competition with yours each year?” the reporter asked.

“Why sir,” said the farmer, “Didn’t you know? The wind picks up pollen from the ripening corn and swirls it from field to field. If my neighbors grow inferior corn, cross-pollination will steadily degrade the quality of my corn. If I am to grow good corn, I must help my neighbors grow good corn.”

So is with our lives… Those who want to live meaningfully and well must help enrich the lives of others, for the value of a life is measured by the lives it touches. And those who choose to be happy must help others find happiness, for the welfare of each is bound up with the welfare of all…

***Exchanging Skepticism for Unconditional Trust***

“What I mean by unconditionally trust in Life, is that you no longer expect to find enemies or to be hurt. People usually fear that if they simply start trusting in life and all beings fully, that they will lose their discernment and security along with dropping their skepticism, but skepticism is based in fear, while discernment and security are natural manifestations that come with raising one’s frequency.

Greater Intelligence can only be achieved by increasing one’s vibratory state of being; it can only arise from genuine bliss, not from mental control or skepticism.

So for your own sake, for your intelligence’s sake, and for the sake of this planet’s welfare, drop the skepticism and start trusting and loving unconditionally. It’ll make you smarter and more powerful than you ever thought possible, not dumber or victimized. Skepticism does not keep you in control, it keeps you in fear and out of alignment. After all, everything you meet is more of your Self, so what is there to fear?” ~ Bentiho

Thank you

It is going to take a miracle because you are the self that keeps you from knowing your Self. Everything you do to further support, assert and defend your self only serves to make knowing your Self seem even more difficult. So it is not the seeking but the miracle that reveals the Truth. And it is the intention, wanting, yearning and commitment of the seeker that makes way for the miracle.

Saying “No” in a Loving Way:

You may not think that saying “no” can be a loving act. Yet, if your child is putting his hand on a hot stove, you say “no” quickly and firmly. You do not want him to hurt himself. And then you put your arm around him and reassure him that you love him.

How many times does your brother come to you with his hand on the stove? You cannot support behavior that you know will be hurtful to another person. And you don’t want your friends to support that kind of behavior in you. ~ Everyday Wisdom by Paul Ferrini

Funny thing is, the self that prays for help is sure to lose in the end, and the Self that remains never knew of a need for help.

Stay in Your Own Life: Don’t make decisions for other people. That will just take the focus away from your life. Let others find their own way. Support them. Encourage them. Cheer them on. But don’t think you know what’s good for them. You don’t know. When you take inappropriate responsibility for others, you overextend and weaken yourself. Don’t do that. Let others live their lives. Stay in your own life and make your own decisions. Put your attention where it belongs. Listen to your guidance, honor it, act on it, and be committed to it. That is a full time job.  ~ Everyday Wisdom by Paul Ferrini

Thoughts and Quotes for Today 3.27.14 March 27, 2014

1. “I’d rather let my spirit fly free, than be caged by religion. Become a Buddha not a Buddhist; become a Christ not a Christian. One implies an awakened state of consciousness, the other a dogmatic approach to life.”God” is too big for one religion. Love & quantum physics are my religion. At one level, all religious traditions have the same aim—to transform the individual into a positive being. I love Jesus, I love Shiva, I love Krishna, I love Buddha. All rivers lead to the same ocean. “I believe in God, but not as one thing, not as an old man in the sky. I believe that what people call God is something in all of us.” ~ John Lennon

 

2. Relationship works best when you recognize that it is just you doing a dance with yourself. The more you give, the more you get, and the only thing that can be lacking is the love you fail to give. The more angry and upset you get, the more angry and upset the other gets. The more loving and peaceful you get the more loving and peaceful the other gets. And what you see in the other you strengthen in yourself because that is what you are focusing on.  And I am always in relation with the self. so, which self am I relating to? the small ‘s’ self or the Authentic ‘S’ Self?

 

3. Today, practice stepping back from a situation where you are deeply attached, where your heart races or your palms are sweating up a storm. Think about how trivial this incident is from the broad perspective of your True and Authentic Self. It really does not matter all that much. Go within. Allow Faith to move your Spirit in the direction you WANT not the direction you fear…

 

4. The romance has died and the promise of special love has crashed and burned. It always does. Now that same relationship that had the purpose of supporting the ego becomes a major force in undoing the ego. Learning and forgiveness opportunities abound. Now, instead of the relationship teaching you that you are separate and special, you can learn that you are one. As you recognize the all-inclusive oneness of love, your relationship becomes a phenomenal teaching accomplishment.

 

Love it Save it

 

Thoughts and Quotes for Today 2.27.14 February 27, 2014

1. “There is a huge amount of freedom that comes to you when you take nothing personally.” ~Don Miguel Ruiz

 

2. Experiencing Joy: You cannot experience Joy in Life  by following or opposing the ideas and actions of other people.  You experience Joy only by remaining faithful to the truth within your own heart. ~ Paul Ferrini

 

3. That romantic, special and exclusive one-on-one stuff that the world has taught us is love is not love at all. It’s just an attempt at ego support and defense (but it does offer valuable learning opportunities). Real love is not special or exclusive in any way. It demands nothing in return. Real love extends to, embraces and includes all without exception.

 

4. Just a reminder: Be not tempted to see yourself as unfairly treated. Don’t blame, judge, condemn, fear or attack. Don’t compare or compete. Don’t correct or try to fix your brother. That’s not your job. Forgive and ask for help to see the Christ in the other. Greet each other with a smile. Treat each other as you would want to be treated. Love one another. Let this be the essence of your spiritual practice, for it is only your Self that you meet and it is your Self that you would find and know.

 

5. Today We Affirm: I expect a day of answered prayers and open doors. I am aligned with the Divine Presence, radiating clarity, poise, peace and Power. Everything I need comes to me easily, effortlessly and in perfect timing. I enjoy working with Life to create my world each day. There is nothing too good to be true, nothing that cannot happen for me or through me. I greet each day with love and joy in my heart and Life expresses goodness through me. I look for and find the good in all people I meet today. I call it forth by my Holy Intention. Through me, Life is creating a wonderful day of answered prayers and limitless good for all.

 

6. This is a POWERFUL AUDIO of Byron Katie doing “The Work” with a Lovely woman on judging her friend for being “negative” I love the laughter and Joy that comes from questioning our “stressful” thoughts http://www.thework.com/audio/bestfriendnegative.mp3

1. Today I forgive and I am forgiven. I surrender to Spirit all shame, blame and guilt. I am washed clean in the Living Waters as I focus on the good in all creatures. My mistakes do not define me. I have a chance today to begin again. I will not punish myself nor anyone else. By the Grace of God (Good/Source/Creator), this is a day of renewal as I release all attack thoughts & replace them with gentle love. I am guided by Spirit to make good choices and I turn to the Presence within to meet all my needs. I am happy and free in the Peace of God today. Jacob Glass

 

2. Rather than letting our mind drift from past to future, we can stay ever in the now. Rather than looking only at the world around US, we can look to the light within. Rather than self-centered thoughts concerned only about getting and defending, we can extend Love and nurture Gratitude. Rather than always looking for external stimulation, be content with inner peace. While we are mindful of these things, the rest of our situations will self-correct as we sail into smooth and friendly waters.

 

3. We are already enough. we are as God/Source/Creator created US. Our worth has been established by our Source. We don’t need to justify, prove or improve anything. We don’t need external validation or Love. We ARE Love. There is no external. We are healed, whole and complete. We are enough.

 

4. There are only two emotions. If it is not Love, then it is fear. There are only these two. There are many different names for “fear”, i.e., jealousy, anger, guilt – but “fear” is at the core of all that is not Love. To create is to Love. Love is all there is. Love is all that was ever created. Love does not have an opposite called “fear”. Fear was never created. You, as a creation of God/Life/Creator, are an extension of Creations’ Love. If Love is not in our awareness we do not know that which we ARE, which is like being dead. Resurrection and healing is in order. What is not Love is a Call for Love, a shift in perception, which is simply our minds to be healed from our false beliefs.

 

5. A holy relationship is a relationship where two have entered into an agreement with each other and with the Holy Spirit to give their relationship over to Him for the purpose of healing and wholeness (as opposed to that other purpose of supporting a failing ego).  Thanks Benny, You Rock!!

1. “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” ~ Eleanor Roosevelt

 

2. While we are trying to control everything, we enjoy nothing. We are learning to relax, breathe, let go and live in each moment…

4. We can learn that faith means trusting in advance what will only make sense in reverse..

 

5. We are supported by forces seen and unseen…. While all I see is PART of ME…
