Thoughts and Quotes for Today 1.28.14 January 28, 2014

1. We simply do what is in front of us to do at any given time. We watch it all unfold without regrets or expectations – without trying to understand it, give it meaning, or judge it in any way. And regardless of what may seem to be happening, we abide in the peace of an awareness of our eternally changeless reality.

2. It’s not that bad things don’t seem to happen anymore. After enlightenment bad things still “seem” to happen. It’s just that we no longer judge whether it is good or bad, and so to us it is neither. We simply accept whatever seems to be happening knowing that nothing is happening, and we are not even the one it may seem to be happening to.

 

3. Do not judge another as being unworthy of love, for you are judging yourself. Do not compare or compete. Who are you comparing? Who are you competing against? There is only you. Be gentle, patient, kind and tolerant. Let your words reflect only mercy. Teach only love. See the perfection in another (the Christ) and you will find it in yourself.

 

4. Judgment is when I see in a way that would have me believe in what is not true – in a way that would have me withhold love.

 

5.  We are awake in the dream when we know that it is just dreaming and we are no longer deceived – we no longer give it meaning or judge it in any way. Awake enough to see glimmerings of light beyond the appearances and to feel the joy associated with our awareness of an inner radiance. Awake enough to be aware of Love.

 

6. We are manifesting things and experiences all of the time. That’s what dreamers do. But most of it is according to old default settings. 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 – to choose Peace, Love and Gratitude each moment. Thanks Benny

1.“Teaching means to show a person that something is possible.” ~ Fritz Perls

 

2. I LOVE THE SIMPLICITY OF THIS WORK: “Most mornings, before or after I went out walking, I would sit by a window in the sunlight and wait for an uncomfortable feeling to appear. If it did, I would be thrilled, because I knew that it was always the result of some thought I needed to clean up. I was this. So I would write the thought down, and there was a lot of humor in the process. The thoughts that I wrote down were almost always about my mother. I knew that if I burned through one delusion, I would burn through them all, because I was dealing with concepts, not with people. They were thoughts like “My mother doesn’t love me”; “She loves my sister and brother more than me”; “She should invite me to family gatherings”; “If I tell the truth about what happened, she’ll deny it and no one will believe me.” That first year, it wasn’t enough that a thought was being met by inquiry, wordlessly, in my mind. The thought had to be written down. You can’t stop mental chaos, however motivated you are. But if you identify one piece of chaos and stabilize it, then the whole world begins to make sense. For about a year, I had to write down the beliefs that kept arising in my mind. I had to write them down and inquire, in order to hold reality firmly. They came very fast—hundreds, thousands of them. Each belief felt like a meteor crashing into a planet, trying to demolish it. Someone would say, or I would hear in my mind, “It’s a terrible day,” and my body would start to shake. It was as if I couldn’t bear the lie. It didn’t matter whether I or someone else spoke it, because I knew it was all me. The cleansing, the undoing, inside me was instantaneous, whereas when I offer inquiry to people, they’re doing it in apparent time and space—in the density that looks like time and space. But for me, the timelessness was obvious. So, when a belief hit me, I would sit and write it down and put it up against the four questions and then turn it around. That first year, I was writing all the time, crying all the time. But I never felt upset. I loved this woman who was dying through inquiry, this woman who had been so very confused. I kept falling in love with her. She was irresistible.” ~ Byron Katie

 

3. Bryon Katie on Generosity: “it’s the self in discussion and inquiry with itself. The “other” is only self-imaged. If I hear a question, it’s inside me, it’s coming from inside me, not from out there, not from “otherness.” There’s no distance, it’s connected through inquiry and immediate, and to answer one’s own question is what love will always do if one stops to listen, always in service to itself. Of course one’s “other” would be grateful. It is its own self. I would ask nothing of myself that was beyond me. It’s refreshment. It is the unlimited mind, the beloved, the pure that answers and the pure that receives. Always expanding itself, stretching, soaring, as its unlimited self, beauty and goodness, creation without limit. To not answer the question is to limit its journey. Questions appear and the answers are there to meet them, unpracticed, spontaneous, new, wise, to the student who is truly a student, and that is all that’s necessary for the mind to authentically respond to itself in a totally unlimited way, dependent only on the student’s desire to listen. If I’m sitting with someone who thinks they know what my answer is going to be, then they have limited themselves and my answers are that limited. If I’m talking to you and you already know, then even my voice will trail away, something stops in me in that recognition that the student is limited. And if I don’t stop it, the student is kind enough to stop it himself. But if the student comes with a mind that is truly open, the answer is unlimited, it’s a bottomless source.”

1. It’s one thing to feel that you are on the right path, but it’s another to think yours is the only path. ~Paulo Coelho

2. “Ask not of yourself what you need, for you do not know and your advice to yourself will hurt you. For what you think you need will merely serve to tighten up your world against the light, and render you unwilling to question the value that this world can really hold for you.” -ACIM

3. “I want only the Peace of God (Divine Love)”, to say these words is one thing, to actually MEAN them would be EVERYTHING…

4. The radical teaching of my teacher and his teacher is that immediately, at any time, you can stop and recognize that everything that you want is already here. It’s already available. It’s yours for free. It is who you ARE. Without our “stories” of littleness…

5. “Everything changes when you start to emit your own frequency rather than absorbing the frequencies around you, when you start imprinting your intent on the universe rather than receiving an imprint from existence.” ~ Barbara Marciniak

1. Don’t be afraid to be yourself, and love yourself and put yourself first, even in front of your children, because you teach your children by who you are, not be what you say. ~ Anita Moorjani 

 

2. There are three ways to teach our children… Example, Example, EXAMPLE…. 

 

3. Everything that irritates us about others can lead US to an understanding of ourselves. ~ Carl Jung 

 

4. Byron Katie on The Work: “If you ask me to do The Work with you, I’m happy to join you there. Inquiry is where I can be understood. I am you in the answers. We meet in the center. It’s the only way I can be seen or understood: in the center, the heart. Whenever you invite me, I’ll jump into your dream. I’ll follow you through the tunnel, into the darkness, into the darkest pit of suffering. I’ll meet you there, I’ll take you by the hand, and we’ll walk through it together into the light.There’s no place I won’t enter. I’m everything, everywhere.”- Katie

 

5. A content Heart is a Calm Sea in the midst of all storms…

1. I will greet this day with love in my heart. ~ Og Mandino

 

2. “It’s no fun eating all the so-called ‘healthy’ foods out of fear of getting sick, and being miserable about it. Being anxious causes a whole other set of problems. Our bodies are actually a lot more resilient than we give them credit for, particularly if we’re happy and not under stress.

Even when I choose to eat healthfully, I do so out of love instead of fear. That’s my method in every aspect of my life, and I invite you to live the same way.” ~ Anita Moorjani

 

3. Life is not happening to you, it’s responding to your thoughts.

 

4. I have been a seeker and still am, but I stopped asking books and the stars. I started listening to the teaching of my soul. ~ Rumi

 

5. I got a look at the two different sides of my own split mind. There was that human side sitting in the darkness – all rigid and contracted with petty little personal concerns. And there was that free spirit side dancing in the light – totally enjoying and freely sharing the moment without even a hint of concern about anything.

Heading over to Sequim, Port Townsend, Port Angeles, Washington so today is another travel day… so I thought I would share this WONDERFUL message from Jacob Glass

POUR FORTH THE OIL by Jacob Glass

“You can wait, delay, paralyze yourself, or reduce your creativity
almost to nothing. But you cannot abolish it.” 
– A Course in Miracles

Like your Divine Parent, you are a born creator. It is your nature to be creative, and creators create. When you are not creating, you will tend to feel less joyful and less alive because you are denying who and what you are. And that in itself is a key point – create from JOY and to stimulate JOY rather than to try to achieve, accomplish or get something. All of that frequently happens when you create, but it is not the point. Create because it is your Divine Destiny to do so.

Writers write. Lovers love. Mothers mother. Painters paint. Singers sing. Farmers farm. Teachers teach. Runners run. Researchers research. And each of you have a multitude of roles to play. You must keep pouring forth creativity from within, FOR YOUR OWN SAKE, because it is an expression of the One Life, the One Mind, AS YOU. The only reason you sometimes lack joy in this is because you have allowed the ego thought system to pervert this process with myths about competition, finite resources, getting something out of it, SELLING, bartering, marketing, branding, forcing, sacrificing, schedules, worldly expectations, suffering and a whole litany of lies used to terrify you into creative paralysis. DO NOT LET EGO STEAL YOUR JOY! JOY is the attracting factor in your life.

Go back to the well again every day to draw from the Infiinite SOURCE of all creativity and drink from the JOYOUS Living Waters. Then, when you come back to the world, begin to pour forth from within you whatever is your daily portion – GIVE IT OUT from within you freely and joyfully. Creators create whether anyone is noticing, paying attention, giving praise, paying or not. Is is your nature to bring forth what is within you whether the world notices or not. And the more you do this, the happier you will become.

“Every day of our lives, in some form or other, we meet with the same problem which the poor widow faced when Elijah said, “Bring me, I pray thee, a morsel of bread,” and perhaps we may feel just as destitute as did she. Fortunately for her, she had enough spiritual intuition to understand his request; and so when she answered that she had, “but a handful of meal in a barrel, and a little oil in a cruse,” the great Hebrew master told her to make him a little cake first because “the barrel of meal shall not waste, neither shall the cruse of oil fail.” She OBEYED. She took her cruse of oil with its few drops and began to pour, and it never ran dry because to the few drops that she had were added more and  more.” – Joel Goldsmith, Our Spiritual Resources

Each day you must  pour forth what you can because YOU ARE a Creator, and you must create from what is within you. You MUST LET IT OUT, you must prime the pump. And the more you pour forth, the more there will be. As a Creator, you do not deplete your resources – in fact, what you do not use, you tend to lose – but never all of it. You can reduce it almost to nothing, but you cannot abolish it. When you have creatively seemed to run dry, it is almost always because you have forgotten about the JOY and have become distracted by calendars, clocks, contracts, deadlines, finances, chores, reputuation and the thousands of ego distraction that tell you who you are NOT instead of who you ARE.

Each day is your own unique co-creation with the Life in you and around you. What will you pour forth today from this JOYOUS Source?

Freedom to be YOU

Happy Mothers Day to Mother Earth, and all the beautiful – strong women who have brought us into this world. May you all be blessed throughout your day
