TIPS FOR TODAY
# 1 – Yep!
# 2 – A video from Roger James Hamilton about why you may want to focus less on goal setting in 2015 and more on raising your standards….
# 3 – Nine animal rescues that are sure to put a smile on your face. Love the one about the dog that trekked all that way with the endurance racers, and the elephant being free after 50 yrs., and the manta that asked for help, and… and… Heck, I guess I really like them all….
# 4 – Just say yes!
# 5 – Writing a vision is a great way to gain greater clarity about the life you want to create for yourself and makes things more real and concrete (it’s also said to make them up to 10 times more likely to happen). And the beginning of the new year is an ideal time for visioning, so for the rest of January I am offering my workbook Vision Writing: Composing & Creating the Life You Were Meant to Live (regularly $18.99) on a donation basis to everyone who stops by the blog. Just send whatever amount works for you to firstname.lastname@example.org at Paypal.com and put “VW donation” in the memo section and I will e-mail you a copy of the newest version of the workbook asap. You can visit my website for more details about the contents of the workbook and read the Visioning page for all the reasons writing a vision is such a great thing to do. And 10% of whatever is received will go to Harmony Fund for Animals, so it’s a win-win-win situation. :-)
# 6 – The Winter Feast for the Soul started a few days ago, but there’s still time to catch up and get involved in this 40-day event. Great for strengthening your meditation/spiritual practice and being a part of a group energy to enrich the planet….
# 7 – Oh this is a good one to really sink your teeth/mind into. It reminds me of the ole “what you resist persists” and reverse fascination catch-22 of where focusing on what you don’t want only creates/attracts more of what you don’t want…..
We encourage you to make peace with everyone who opposes you and with everyone whom you oppose, not only because you cannot insist on their yielding to your perspective but because their opposing perspective is of tremendous benefit to you.
You see, because of your exposure to what you perceive as their wrong or bad or unwanted behavior or perspective—you have given birth to an improved situation. And just as they helped the problem side of the equation to come into focus, they helped the solution side of the equation to come into focus, also; and that solution waits for you in your Vortex of Creation.
Through our daily meditation process, you will come into alignment with those solutions and creations that are in your Vortex, and from inside your Vortex, you will feel appreciation for everyone who contributed to its becoming.
When you make peace with those who differ in desire and belief and behavior from your ideas of what is appropriate, you do not perpetuate what you consider to be wrong. Instead, you align with the solution side of the equation that has been waiting for you in your Vortex of Creation.—Abraham
And I recently read a very thought-provoking blog post by Colin Tipping (Radical Forgiveness) about the recent terrorist attacks in France that ties in very nicely with Abraham’s words and shows how they can apply to real life situations. I highly recommend reading it; very stimulating….
