TIPS FOR TODAY:
# 1 – OMG, could this pic from I Love Nature be any sweeter?! I told a friend the adult reminded me of a cat version of Yoda or a cat crossed with a Native American medicine man…..the ears and part of the fur give the appearance of a buffalo headdress.
# 2 – Great stimulation from a newsletter from Tama Kieves…..
“This month our miraculous focus from A Course in Miracles is “You Cannot But Be in the Right Place at the Right Time.”
We are in times of change, but not in times of chaos.
You may find yourself in transition. You feel as though you’re floundering or paralyzed because you can’t see what moves to make. Relax. Take a deep breath because you’re not in the middle of disarray but in the middle of perfection.
Just because your precious mind doesn’t see a plan, doesn’t mean there’s not a plan that will blow your mind. Oh, believe me, there is.
You can look at a grapefruit and your eyes won’t see the crystalline molecular structure or atoms whirring like bees. But your refusal of reality doesn’t change reality. You are loved and you have a way, even if you wail with confusion. Your way awaits you. It waits for you to learn what to pay attention to, and what to disregard.
A Course in Miracles teaches “Your passage through time and space is not at random. You cannot but be in the right place at the right time.” You are not lost. You are not abandoned. You can abandon yourself and feel abandoned. But you will always find your way– when you find your way back to listening to your knowing, your spirit and not the relentless noise of your conditioning.
You are where you need to be. You are who you need to be.Even when you have beliefs that destroy your joy.
In an Age of Information, it’s time to pay attention to the right information. Listen only to the marrow of your being. Your desires are decrees. Let go of every belief that doesn’t uplift, excite, or soothe you. This isn’t rationalization. This is dedication. You want to become only your true self. Everything else grows naturally and inevitably from this attended soil.”
# 3 – Yes!
“One of the greatest needs this planet has for healing is blessing.
It is under blessed. Under blessed reality is like empty calories.
A blessing enhances possibilities for good. Like an enzyme for
growth, like a catalyst in a chemical process, blessings serve to
help a living process surmount the barriers that obstruct it.”
~Zalman Schachter-Shalomi, from “Jewish With Feeling ”
If your dominant intent is to feel joy while you are doing the work, your triad of intentions—freedom, growth and joy—will come quickly and easily into alignment. See your “career” as one of creating a joyful life experience. You are not a creator of things or a regurgitator of what someone else has created or a gatherer of stuff. You are a creator, and the subject of your creation is your joyful life experience. That is your mission. That is your quest. That is why you are here. — Abraham
