A DAY OF GRACE


 

PICK FOR TODAY:

This is so good it deserves a post of it’s own, plus it’s  great for starting off a new year with. What would happen if we all decided to live a day (or year!) in Grace?!

 

LIVING A DAY IN GRACE by Madisyn Taylor

Grace exists in all situations and in every moment, yet all too often we may overlook its presence.

Grace is always with us. It flows like a river through our lives, artfully reminding us that there is magic and power beyond what our eyes can see. At times we catch its subtle beauty, like during chance meetings, near misses, and insights that seem to come from nowhere. Other times we experience grace in all its powerful surety such as when a job or relationship comes to an end. Though we may forget that this is grace at work too, it is indeed influencing our lives, helping us to move forward and take the next step. Grace exists in all situations, in every moment, yet all too often we may overlook its presence.

Imagine how it would feel to live an entire day in grace, to fully appreciate that your day is unfolding in absolute perfection. Whereas usually you might miss the magic in ordinary events and interactions, on this day you would recognize them all as little miracles. Perhaps you could begin with your first deep breaths in the morning, becoming aware that there is an abundant supply of air for you to breathe. Your lungs know just how to carry oxygen to your blood, and your blood knows where to carry it from there.

This is grace at work. You might appreciate the brilliant sunshine, the warm summertime rain, or the possibilities for learning that greet you at every turn. You might notice the ease with which you do your job or laugh with a close friend. These things are also grace. Even laying your head down at the end of this day and resting in the stillness of night is grace.

With each opportunity you give yourself to enjoy this current of benevolence, you may discover a deeper peace. Your faith may strengthen and your heart may open. You might begin to wonder if struggle is really all that necessary after all. By living this one day in grace, you might open the door to many more.

 

And you might like to revisit a couple of previous New Year’s Day posts…

PICKS FOR TODAY:

 

#1 – This is such a great idea. It’s something I picked up from Rob Brezsny’s newsletter, which is usually full of insightful, inspirational stuff. Try this for the next day or two and see what happens. It really DOES make a difference! Seems like a great process to start this Thanksgiving week….

THE WORLD DESIRES YOU

Jane Brunette, aka Flamingseed, suggests this game: Instead of being the one who does the desiring, imagine instead that everything desires you.

Your morning coffee really wants you to taste it.

The trees are yearning for you to notice the bright green of their leaves.

The breeze wants you to enjoy it’s soft touch on your cheek.

Even the ground under your shoes is waiting for you to notice the lively sensation it creates as you walk._

Suddenly, the world lights up — and so do you. When we feel wanted, it’s natural to feel enlivened in response. Our desire takes its rightful place as the fire of presence and enjoyment of what is, instead of the burning need to get what’s not here.

Doing this practice, we will derive satisfaction from a whole variety of ordinary things that we normally overlook, since our attention won’t be occupied with waiting for a specific object to please us. Now, there is no need to wait, because everything we encounter has satisfaction built into it. With desire spread out all over the world, its enlivening quality is no longer confined to one object that we may or may not get.

This little game can trick you into mindful presence, even as it helps wear down your usual relationship to desire. It is a simple, playful way to meditate as you go about your daily life. Try it for short little bursts — and rather than thinking of it as a task, let the enjoyment that comes be the fuel that naturally makes you want to do it more and more.

# 5 – YES!

count blessings

 

# 6 – And a great one from Abe….

Most rarely align with their true power, because it seems illogical to them that there is power in relaxation, in letting go, or in love or joy or bliss. Most people do not understand that their true power lies in releasing resistance—which is the only obstacle to their true power.

Most people do not expect their path to great abundance to be one of ease and of joy. They have been taught that struggle and hardship and sacrifice are requirements that must be met before the reward of great abundance can be realized. Most do not understand that the very struggle they deliberately involve themselves in, in their quest for success and advantage, actually works against them.

There are so many things that you have been taught to believe that are counter to the powerful Laws of the Universe that it is difficult for you to think your way out. And that is the reason that we present this path of much less resistance.

We want you to breathe rather than try, to relax rather than offer effort, to smile rather than struggle, to be rather than do. For your true power is experienced only from inside the Vortex.  — Abraham

 

Have an inspired and inspiring Thanksgiving week!

# 6 – A good one from Rob Brezsny’s newsletter….

HOW TO HAVE A SPIRITUAL EXPERIENCE

The teacher Rudolf Steiner had a devotee who complained that after years of meditating and studying sacred texts he had not yet had a spiritual experience.

Steiner asked him if he’d noticed the face of the conductor on 
the train on which they were riding. The man said no. Steiner 
replied, “Then you just missed a spiritual experience.”

My interpretation: You can expedite and intensify your 
education about spiritual matters by noticing the beauty and 
holiness in the most mundane things.

Also, this: Every event that happens is an opportunity to 
meditate.

 

# 7 – And my Note from the Universe the other day….

Performing miracles, Zirah, isn’t a matter of doing the impossible, it’s a matter of redefining the possible.

Global Oneness Summit 2018, Donna Eden, the placebo effect, after age 40, and Abe


 

PICKS FOR TODAY:

# 1 –  Global Oneness Summit…..

Thought some of you may be interested in this message from Humanity’s Team about the upcoming 9th annual Global Oneness Summit on Oct 24th where they will have a dozen panels and seminars lined up exploring Divine Presence, The Power of Evolving the Self, Leaders in Integral Framework, Creating Peace on Earth, Our Final Frontier, Transformation Through Science, Spirituality & Oneness, Raising Wholeness, the Evolutionary Impulse of Conscious Business, the Divine Feminine, Restoring Mother Earth, and Sacred Action.

There will also be an opening ceremony, guided meditation, a sound healing, and closing ceremony. It all starts at 8 am Pacific/11 am Eastern, and as long as you’re signed up, they’ll send you free access to the replay of the entire program afterwards.

They sent along a video clip excerpt from last year’s most talked about panel, the Science Panel with Gregg Braden, Bruce Lipton, and Nassim Haramein as an “appetizer.” It’s 13 ½ minutes long and I initially planned on only watching the first few minutes and then suddenly found myself saying “What the hey?!” when it stopped, because the time passed so quickly I thought it had gotten cut off mid-stream and I was wanting more.

The video clip is stimulating, thought-provoking, and deeply inspiring….and perfect if you want to have a better understanding of epigenetics (and changing from victimhood to creatorship) and why things are the way they are in the world right now at this pivotal and unprecedented point in history. Hope you find the time to watch. I think you’ll be glad you did!

Go here to see the full Global Oneness Day schedule and sign up.

# 2 – Some fascinating research on the placebo effect and an entertaining, enlightening video on how just reading a label and the power of suggestion can influence us in more ways than one…..
# 3 – If you act quickly you can gain access to a free masterclass by energy medicine pioneer Donna Eden as a lead-in to her extremely popular MindValley Energy Medicine course. You’ll pick up a number of neat self-help health “tricks” if you do. You can sign up here.
# 4 – A little humor and wisdom at the same time…..
# 5 – And some Abe to end on……
If there is something that you have to do, resist the temptation to do it under duress. Ask yourself, “What’s the worst thing that would happen if I didn’t do this?” And if you can get away with not doing it at all, don’t do it. And then imagine what would it feel like to have this done. Spend a day or two, if you can, just 15 minutes here, 5 minutes here, 2 minutes here, here and here, imagining it completed in a way that pleases you! And then, the next time you decide that you’re going to take action about it, the action is going to be a whole lot easier. — Abraham

6. AS YOU ARE CHOOSING YOUR THOUGHTS, YOUR EMOTIONS ARE GUIDING YOU.

# 2 –

“Believe in a love that is being stored up for you like an inheritance, and have faith that in this love there is a strength and a blessing so large that you can travel as far as you wish without having to step outside it.”
– Rainer Maria Rilke, from “Letters to a Young Poet,” translated by Stephen Mitchell

 

# 3 – Wisdom from psychotherapist Jennifer Welwood…….

Willing to experience aloneness,
I discover connection everywhere;

Turning to face my fear,
I meet the warrior who lives within me;

Opening to my loss and pain and ignorance,
I remember who I am and what I’m here for.

Surrendering into emptiness,
I find fullness without end.

Each condition I flee from pursues me,
Each condition I welcome transforms me

and becomes itself transformed
into the blessing it always was.

 

# 4 – Something for the cat lovers out there. ;-)

Fear itself is not the impediment to your joyful life. But, fear is pointing at the impediment to your joyful life. And just as the feeling of fear is within you, the impediment is within you also. — Abraham

Loving kindness, Deepak, solar system, spiritual work, growth, 23rd Psalm, and remember you are…..


 

PICKS FOR TODAY:

 

# 1 – This would make a great prayer/blessing or lead-in to meditation to start off the day…..

 

# 2 – From the recent free 21-day meditation series offered by Deepak and Oprah…..

The mind game consists of the tricks your mind plays on you, making you see reality according to old memories, fears, wounds, prejudices, outworn beliefs, second-hand opinions, and early conditioning. When you are aware your mind is filtering your reality based on the past, you can change it with that awareness. In fact, awareness is the change.” — Deepak Chopra

 

# 3 – Trippy and cool. Life is a vortex, not just rotation. What a universe! They say that all the plants and life forms here are based on spirals, but who thought that the sun was part of that, too?! Makes sense though.

 

As speaking of spirals and transits/rotations, check out this post and the image of Venus transits over a 8 year period. Amazing!

 

# 4 – From Rob Brezsny’s newsletter……..

In his book *Perfect Love, Imperfect Relationships,* psychotherapist John Welwood writes, “Psychological work focuses more on what has gone wrong: how we have been wounded in our relations with others and how to go about addressing that.

“Spiritual work focuses more on what is intrinsically right: how we have infinite resources at the core of our nature that we can cultivate in order to live more expansively. If psychological work thins the clouds, spiritual work invokes the sun.”

Also from his newsletter….

“Pain motivates you to grow? OK. But maybe you don’t need as much of that stuff as you used to. Maybe you could actually start learning more and more from — gasp! — pleasurable experiences.”

 

# 5 – Wow, amazing and powerful experience to listen to this…..

# 6 – And a good one to end on…..
