Everything desires YOU!, Apache prayer, bear cub, Helen the bison, Thanksgiving story, count your blessings, and true power


 

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

TIPS FOR THE NEW YEAR:

# 1 – Thanks to Theresa at Soul Gatherings for posting this so I could share with all of you….

Beannacht – A New Year Blessing
~ John O’Donohue ~

On the day when
The weight deadens
On your shoulders
And you stumble,
May the clay dance
To balance you.

And when your eyes
Freeze behind
The grey window
And the ghost of loss
Gets into you,
May a flock of colours,
Indigo, red, green
And azure blue,
Come to awaken in you
A meadow of delight.

When the canvas frays
In the currach of thought
And a stain of ocean
Blackens beneath you,
May there come across the waters
A path of yellow moonlight
To bring you safely home.

May the nourishment of the earth be yours,
May the clarity of light be yours,
May the fluency of the ocean be yours,
May the protection of the ancestors be yours.

And so may a slow
Wind work these words
Of love around you,
An invisible cloak
To mind your life.

Especially love those last two stanzas!

# 2 – Great idea!

# 3 –  Glorious! And such good advice for 2015!

Open yourself to the wisdom of nature, vast and expansive,
bringing forth life in myriad ways.
Let its intelligence inform you
and transform you.
Let nature help you evolve into a higher being. ∼ Alberto Villoldo

# 4 –  Here’s an opportunity to get a free download of Dr. Edward Group’s new The Green Body Cleanse book that contains information about greening up and “healthing” up your home, workplace and body. Great info to have at the start of 2015!

# 5 – And a double dose of Abe to get the new year off right. With a lot of  scary seeming stuff happening in the world these days, as you venture into 2015 this might be something to keep in mind….

There are always those who thrive when masses are dying of sickness. There are always those who thrive economically when economic decline seems to be the order of your nation. There are always those who are clear-minded in environments of confusion. You do not need everyone or anyone else to align with your desire—only you need to align with your desire. ∼Abraham

Something else to keep in mind. I think this will be one of my mantras for the year. :-)

The standard of success in life isn’t the things. It isn’t the money or the stuff —it is absolutely the amount of joy you feel. ∼Abraham

 

Enjoy and Happy New Year!

Happy Gratitude (Thanksgiving) Day!


Thanksgiving is a time for sharing and being grateful for all we have. My wish is that this year, more than ever before, we are able to extend that increased level of thanks giving to each and every day of the year.  “Gratitude is the cornerstone of happiness; for nothing brings joy until it is appreciated.”

   Be content with what you have;
Rejoice in the way things are.
When you realize there is nothing lacking
The whole world belongs to you.
-Lao Tzu

Here are a couple of special Thanksgiving tips:

# 1 – A great little video….
