The Courage to relax and play….


 

PICK FOR TODAY:

I LOVE this artwork by Michael Parkes and quote by Brene Brown. Such a good piece of wisdom to keep in mind during this often hectic holiday season. Rest and play is when we recharge and become re-inspired (filled with Spirit) so we can truly be a light/the Light unto others. You win, those around you win, and so does the whole world….

 

It takes courage to rest and play in a world where exhaustion is a status symbol. ~ Brene Brown

This Abe quote has always been one of my faves and goes nicely with the one above….

Reduce your workload by 30% and increase your fun load by 30% and you will increase your revenues by 100%. And you will increase your productivity by 10,000%. (If there could be such a percentage.) More fun, less struggle — more results on all fronts. ~ Abraham

 

Enjoy your holiday/holy days season!

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

 

Have an inspired and inspiring Thanksgiving week!

# 1 – Amazing sacred geometry pattern formed by tracing the transit pattern of Venus over an 8 year period. What a magical, mystical world we live in….

 

# 2 – This is great! Love coming across this kind of news……

 

# 3 – Love this quote that was at the beginning of The Power of Eight (fyi, the whole book is a great read)…..

# 5 – A great one from Prince Ea…..

 

# 6 – The mind is based in polarity, the heart knows only unity…..

“Now it is clear–when one creates from within the head using the mind, one is using a polarity instrument, the mind, to create with. And even though the intention is to create good in one way or another, the mind will always create both good and bad because that is its nature.

I suggest that you try to create only from within the scared space of the heart, for the heart knows only unity and will create the intention as it is conceived without its dark side.” — Thoth, from Drunvalo’s book Living in the Heart

 

#7 – Love is the answer!

 

Enjoy!

Present moment, be THERE now, choice, jackfruit and sugar cravings, cosmic orders, humor and life lessons


 

PICKS FOR TODAY:

 

# 1 – Sweet!

Image may contain: text

 

# 2 – This is a good one from Notes from the Universe and reminds me of the work/words of Dr Joe Dispenza. It’s also a little twist on the Ram Dass famous “Be Here Now,” except it’s “Be THERE Now” :-)…..

Be there, Zirah. Go there now and never leave. Imagine that your dreams have already come true. Live your life from that mindset. Predicate your behavior on that reality, not the illusions that now surround you. Filter every thought, question, and answer from there. Let your focus shift and be born again – because dwelling from, not upon, the space you want to inherit is the fastest way to change absolutely everything.

All together now, Zirah, “Because dwelling from, not upon, the space you want to inherit is the fastest way to change absolutely everything.”

See the difference?
The Universe

# 1 – Love that instead of ending up in a bull-fighting ring, this big guy is being used to educate people about how compassion toward animals is the way to go…. 

 

 

# 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…..
