Thought for the Week

Weekly Earth

Kindness

These times of great change and chaos in the world, the energetic vibrational extremes, the self-evaluation so many of us are doing and the accompanying transformations inside of us are not always easy.  We are all good people, good Souls that have fluctuations of progress on our Journeys.  Sometimes we slip a little and observe ourselves thinking and behaving in ways we would like to believe are behind us.  But we must remember – often much to our dismay! – that we are, after all, still residing and inhabiting a space and physical vehicle that is based in a 3D reality.  Yes, we have begun to rise in Consciousness, to grow into the new Beings and Hearts we are meant to be, but clearly this will not happen in the blink of an eye.  We have begun to enter the Vibrational Energy of a 4D reality.  This is not being done in one great leap, but rather a traversing back and forth (or up and down and back up again) as our awareness is enhanced and our Beings becomes more comfortable with the new Energy.

These characteristics of our Journey upward can seep out into the ego-based, duality consciousness of the current World at large.  This can result in passionate emotions, responses, and judgments as we watch the changes going on around us.  The dramas playing out on the Planet can be difficult for us to separate from without judgment.  These Vibrational fluctuations can also be experienced in our more private and personal worlds with spouses/partners, family, and friends, also resulting in knee-jerk judgments and rash responses.

In order for us to find a smoother and less bumpy road to the new levels we’re Ascending to, I think there is one tool, made up of two words, that can assist greatly in keeping us aligned with the vision of how we want to experience this part of the Journey:  Kindness and Understanding.

When you read or listen to the news and current events of the day, can you observe these happenings from a base of Kindness and Understanding?  Can you begin to try on the role of Objective Observer of the players in the game?  We must remember that, no matter how strongly our convictions about situations or people have been, that we are all – even those powers in the world that seem “dark” or “evil” – pieces of God/Creator/Prime Source.  Like it or not, they too are accomplishing the role they volunteered to play.  Yes, it may be a very “dark”, cruel, “evil”, tyrannical, abusive, criminal, greed-driven role.  But when their Journey is done – however long that takes – they too, will return “Home” as a piece of the Divine.  No one would debate that current events and dramas playing out can, at moments, be painful, angering and sorrowful!  But it is now the time of letting go of the human ego-driven response from judgment, and become Kind and Understanding Observers of all aspects of our Beautiful World and all its people.

We have been asked on a Soul-level and have volunteered for this Lifetime on Earth to assist the greatest Transformation of Consciousness ever experienced by humans.  And if we allow ourselves to continue our participation in the dramas by way of judgment, anger, and unwillingness to see the bigger picture, then we are not providing the assistance we had intended to give.

These responses can also be experienced on a more personal level – “in our own backyard” so to speak.  Beginning at home, beginning with ourselves can be the strategy to creating a new “normal” response to the World at large.  Are we being Kind and Understanding with our spouses/partners, family, friends?  It’s easy to forget Kindness with those who seem so close and so merged with our own lives.  And it’s certainly easy to say things without thinking and have knee-jerk responses with those we are so close to.  One of my favorite quotes from Maya Angelou says:

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

And we must remember this, whether it’s responses to those who are close to us, or our loudly expressed opinions of people in the outer World.  We must remember that what we emit in Emotional Energy will travel out to affect another’s Heart, somewhere.  You may not be aware of the effect on another on the other side of the World or just down the block, but you will most definitely feel the affect of your response in your own Heart.  It would be a much more Joyful experience to feel the ripples in our own Hearts that come from Kindness and Understanding rather than judgment and animosity.

Our emotional Energy, our words will affect someone, somewhere.  And as we become more consciously aware of the effect we have on our inner and outer World with this energy, it will become easier and easier to respond automatically with only Kindness and Understanding.  And don’t forget to include yourself:  we too need our constant expression of Kindness and Understanding in every Moment.  As we shower more Kindness and Understanding on our own Journey and ourselves, we will find that, without even trying, this will encompass all the World’s other Beautiful Souls and Beings without even trying.

Let us all remember, in each Moment, no matter what else seems to be happening within ourselves or out in our World, the words of Ram Dass:

“We’re all just walking each other home.”

Peace

THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK

Healing the Past

We are all experiencing deep changes in our Lives at this time.  Do you feel the shifting, deep inside of you?  Are you aware of the transformation occurring within you?  Collectively and individually, all of Humanity is entering a new Heart space.

For many, this is bringing up past grief, past guilt, past hurts, all experienced within the Heart.  Often these scenes from the past play in our minds during the most incongruous moments.  In the middle of a conversation with a friend or family member, do you find a memory bubbling to the surface of your mind of a past wrong someone “committed” against you?  In a Peaceful moment of observing Nature, does your mind replay the loss of an animal companion from years ago?  When chatting with a neighbor, does your mind remember an unkindness you directed toward another in the past?

Do any of these scenes that replay in your mind Heal you?  In watching them again, do you swim in the Emotion of the Heart?  Can you wonder if at some point you have become “addicted” to the memory and accompanying feelings?  Your ego will confront that pondering by telling you that to Heal this memory is “easier said than done.”  Is it truly?  Or is it easier done than continuing to relive it?

What would happen if you attempted to observe the memory playing in your mind from a space of detachment?  From a place of only Love?  Is it possible?

As Eckhart Tolle tells us “Your past is not you.”  The real You exists in the space of only this Moment.  Is your entire Being nothing more than a lifetime of hurts endured?  Is your entire Being nothing more than the “wrongs” you have done to others?  Is your entire Being nothing more than the grief you have felt?

We are so much more than these things.  You are so much more than your pain and guilt.  In fact, these feelings are illusions.  Do these repeated memories move you forward?  Do they still teach you about yourself or has the teachable moment already been experienced?  Have you received what you needed from that experience and memory?  If your answer is yes, than isn’t the “lesson” behind you?  Your ego will insist you must continue to re-live that Moment because there is more to learn.  Would you continue to attend a class repeatedly, hundreds or thousands of times if you acquired the Knowledge the first time around?

We have arrived in a time – as a Humanity and Collective Consciousness – when the Healing of the past is required to move forward.  We all feel the Heart’s momentum, barely held in check at Moments, to become our True selves.  The Heart’s True self, the Heart’s “new normal” is simply the Love and Joy singing in the Present Moment.

This week Honor the Moments where your past repeats a scene in your mind.  In those Moments, be in the space of the memory and Lovingly address it:

–  Ask yourself if the memory is contributing to the Present Moment.

–  Ask yourself if the accompanying emotion is authentic to the Present Moment.  Does it contribute positively to the feeling of the Present Moment?

–  In those Moments, when the feeling within the memory begins to seep in, can you be aware and simply stop the emotion from entering into your Heart?  Your ego will try to tell you this would betray your past and who you are.  Can you remember that You, in your Present Moment, are not your past?

– In that Moment, Honor that memory as simply an occurrence in your Life’s Journey, rather than a required re-experiencing of the Emotion.

–  Can you Honor that memory by no longer requiring it to live in your Now Moment?  Honor that Moment by rewriting the scene.  Envision in your mind that you take the memory by the hand.  See your Present self lead that past memory to a white shining door that says HEALED PAST EXPERIENCE.  As you reach to open this door, look at the memory next to you.  Smile at this memory and as you move it through the door say “I heal you.  Thank you for your Wisdom.  Go in Peace.”  Let go of its hand and wave good-bye as you gently and Lovingly close the door.  Now turn around and observe yourself back in the Present Moment.

The next step in discovering our Higher Consciousness together as the collective Heart of Humanity requires that we let go of the any past emotion contained within our individual stories and free up, once and for all, these spaces in our Hearts.

This week, practice Healing of your past when the opportunities arise.  Practice Being in only the Present Moment.  Remember that allowing the emotions from past memories to be part of the Present Moment does not assist your Heart in attaining its desired return to Love.  Remember that only your Ego, not your Soul, is requiring you to relive the past.  Remember that you will not betray yourself by giving the past its rightful place in the past, but rather you will experience the Present Moment and can begin to discover the Joy and Love that is waiting to be the new normal of your Heart.

The Present Moment is asking us all to Heal the past now.  This Moment is the only space in which you truly Exist.  Your Heart asks you now to be Healed.  Your Heart is ready for you to return and Be, Now.

Peace

Silence

 

We live in a very noisy, chaotic, busy work-a-day World.  Everywhere we turn, there is activity that contains the inherent sound and noise that just seems to accompany Life.  Think for a Moment about the myriad of sounds that intrude upon the hearing and the brain each waking minute of a day:  TV, radio, traffic, machinery, alarms, constant chatter and talking to name a few.

Do you ever stop and truly be fully Aware of the constant feed of sounds and noise in your day?  Is it possible that when you feel out of Balance, a significant aspect of this imbalance could be the “noise invasion” that exists?

Can you examine for a Moment, if you are a Soul that finds comfort in the noise that plays endlessly in a day?  Are you a Soul that is uncomfortable with Silence?

The noise that continually plays around the clock in our Lives has become such an accepted part of Life for many people.  Does this mean it is good for you simply because it exists?

Do you take time during the day or week to really sit with Silence and make friends with it?  One can get a True sense of the level of noise we subconsciously accept into our lives by trying this:  Take some time to shut everything off.  Everything.  Not just TV, radio, etc. but also electronics, air conditioners, etc.  Within the first Moments of Silence, close your eyes.  Many will find that in this space, there is a sudden awareness of the noise that continues – within the ears and brain.

The noises that play so constantly in our Lives actually disturb our Vibrational Balance.  We carry within ourselves a natural Balance that results when we are in Vibrational Harmony with our own Being and the Universe around us.  When this Vibrational Harmony is disturbed, or assaulted with unnatural waves of sound, this will create an imbalance within our Spirits and Hearts and Chakric System.  Remember, that once a noise or sound or word is released, it creates a Wave pattern that continues to exist in the space and ethers indefinitely.  Without even realizing it, we are impacted by the constant Wave patterns that bombard us.  When you have days that feel uncentered and out of Balance, can you ponder whether some of this might be the result of the noise that has become almost “natural” to many?

If we can Honor the Gift of Silence that is always available to us, could we discover our Muse, our Guidance, our Higher Self, our Creativity, and the answers we seek are right there waiting to Embrace us?

This week, take notice of the Moments you are Blessed with some Silence.  Use these Moments to bring yourself back to the Awareness of your own Being.

This week, make time to form a routine where you gift yourself with a period of Silence each day.  If this has been difficult for you in the past, decide this week to create a new habit of visiting with Silence each day.

This week, become Aware and ask yourself which sounds are more desirable and Joyful to your Spirit:  The sound of a wave living out it’s natural movement or the sound of the garbage truck in the alley?  The sound of a bird singing, or the sound of the TV with it’s familiar background noise?  The sound of rain, or the sound of the “talk” radio that drones endlessly?  The sound of the wind, or the constant hum of office machinery?

This week, reconnect with the Divine Field of Life and Love that is your True Home.  Sit in Silence, and you will discover you are already halfway there.

Peace

Thought for the Week

Honoring the Journey

We are in a time that at Moments seems turbulent.  Many are confused and being pushed and pulled in every direction.  The things we read, the events and turmoil we observe, and the issues that many of our Loved ones – Family and Friends – are experiencing disturb us more each day.  And through all of this, we continue to look for positive messages, for Guidance, for Balance.  At times, it can become difficult to remember we are all on a Journey in Life, a Journey that each of us has chosen to experience.

When it becomes difficult to stay in the place of our True Essence, it is also easy to forget our Oneness.  That we are all Connected.  And when we are distracted from our Oneness with everything and everyone, we can no longer see the Essence of that Oneness:  That You are Me.  I am You.  I am my Partner.  You are your Spouse or Partner.  You are your Best Friend.  You are your boss.  I am the person suffering on the other side of the World.  I am my neighbor.

We are all One.  And we have experienced the Life of everyone we know, everyone we read about.  We have all been Lightworkers.  We have all been Dark Ones at one time or another.

When we can remember these things, it becomes easier to Honor the Journey of those around us.  Do you feel someone you Love “should” live in a different way?  Do you see only “Good” and “Bad” in people around you?  Do you criticize in your mind the people in the news as right or wrong?  Do you constantly offer advice to those you care about, believing if they would only live in a different way, their Life would better?

Do you forget that every single person experiencing Life is a Spiritual Being?  As Spiritual Beings, we have come into Life with a mission, an agreement, an intended Journey that was Created as our Soul’s Choice.  We may not remember our mission for Life as we begin to grow and develop as children, but our Souls have made these choices for very specific growth.

When events and Moments in your Life or the Lives of others are difficult to accept, can you remember there is a Purpose to all that is occurring?  There is a reason you have Chosen the events and Moments in your Life.  There is a reason others have Chosen to Journey through experiences in their Lives.  Even when you disagree, or even Believe they are “doing it wrong,” can you remember, with Love, that their very Soul Essence planned out that Journey, for their own Higher Good and growth?

When you struggle in your Life, can you remember that your Soul lovingly Chose those struggles for your own Higher Good?  This can, of course, be difficult.  Especially when we observe this in those we Love and Care about.  And it can be difficult when we see it in our own Lives, forgetting we Chose that Moment or situation long ago.

Begin to see that it is possible to Love another deeply, Care about another member of Humanity, but without the responsibility to “fix” the situation.  We can offer advice if asked.  We can provide a Hug or a shoulder.  We can listen.  And we can Honor ourselves and those around us best by Respecting the course of a Life’s Journey.

This week, when you observe another taking a direction you Believe is wrong, step back and simply allow that Soul their Choices.

This week, practice staying in Love toward someone when you observe them taking a direction that you Believe is wrong.  See yourself in their eyes.  You can provide Love and Guidance if they ask, but you cannot change their Journey.

Be observant of Moments this week that provide you an opportunity to practice pulling back on your usual level of unsolicited advice.  Practice Divine Love towards them.  Listen.  Respect.  Simply Honor what they are going through without Judgement of right or wrong.

Remember that you can truly only “fix” a struggle or situation in your own Life.  In staying in your Center, you can more easily Honor the Journeys we each experience as True Intentions from our Souls.

Start with yourself.  When you can see your own Journey – struggles and Joys – as a Divine Choice, it will become easier to make the choices in your Life that are for your Higher Good.  In doing this, you will experience more Strength and Love in the Heart to Honor the Journey of everyone else.

In Honoring the Journeys you can then begin to experience your Oneness with All That Is.

In experiencing your Oneness with All That Is, you can then remember that we are all on a Divine Journey and all will Joyfully return to the same Source.

THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK

April 22 2012

Practicing Conscious Love

How does the word LOVE cause you to feel inside?  When you say LOVE or you hear someone else say LOVE, do you have a Conscious Thought about the meaning of LOVE?  Do you feel a Vibration that the word carries?  Has the word LOVE lost it’s meaning for you because of its over-use in everyday conversation?

What kind of Thoughts would you have if the next time you said or heard the word LOVE you stopped to think about?  Would you in that Moment feel its Purity, Simplicity and Grandeur?

The word LOVE carries a Vibration.  It is a Pure Vibration.  The Essence of LOVE does not define or select or have preferences.  LOVE is non-discriminatory.  LOVE does not originate in the human Heart.  LOVE originates in the Divine Field, the All That Is, God, the Creator, the I Am.  Our Hearts are meant to be the carriers of LOVE that was infused within us at the point of Creation.  LOVE does not care if we label it with words like meaningless, pointless, corny, mushy.  The Essence and Vibration of LOVE only desires to be everywhere.  To permeate Hearts, Spirits, and Beings.  It desires that we be Conscious of it.  It desires to Be.

Are you Conscious of how you carry the Vibration of Love?  Are you selective about who “deserves” the Love you carry?  Are you attentive each time you utter the word LOVE?  Is it easy for you to LOVE your neighbor across the street but impossible to LOVE your neighbor on the other side of the Planet?  Are you Conscious of how you spread and Express LOVE from your Being?

This week take the time to be Aware of each instance you use the word LOVE.  Practice Conscious LOVE.  Practice and try out what it feels like to experience the Vibration of LOVE toward a complete stranger.  Practice experiencing what the Vibration of LOVE means to you.  Is it Liberating?

LOVE can be infused in everything we think, say and do.  It is easy to LOVE our family; it is easy to LOVE our Friends.  This week, practice expanding this feeling.  Could it truly be just easy to LOVE your neighbor with the same unconditional nature of LOVE you give to family and friends?  Could it be as simple and easy to feel the same unconditional LOVE for those you disagree with?  All the citizens of your country?  Your country’s leaders?  Can you feel unconditional Love for other countries and their citizens?  How about for your perceived enemies?  How about the Earth and her creatures?

The Vibration and Essence of LOVE has no other desire but to be felt and shared.  Can you acknowledge this week the responsibility we have to carry and expand LOVE?  It takes no work to share, spread, express and expand LOVE.  It takes massive work to reject LOVE and deny it and mistrust it.

Be aware of Moments where you have unloving Thoughts toward someone.  Transform these Moments and these Thoughts to a Conscious Awareness of LOVE instead.  Practice replacing programmed Thoughts of separation and differences to simple Thoughts of LOVE.

LOVE is not pointless.

LOVE can Heal the World.  But we must be daring enough to make the Conscious Choice to be aware of LOVE and experience its Vibration.  Be daring enough to choose the Expression and Awareness of LOVE in everything we do and say.

When all else is stripped away, we are simply Divine Souls containing Pure LOVE and Intelligence.  This week, ask yourself why that might be.

Can you choose to fall in Love with the LOVE that you are?

Practice Conscious LOVE.  For Yourself.  For everyone.

“The life and love we create is the life and love we live”

THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK

April 9 2012

Being in the Now Moment

Do you ever stop to think during the week, or in a given day, how much time you spend in the past? How much time you spend in the Future? Do your thoughts during the day seem to reside in a space that ruminates the past? Do you find your Thoughts are too often traveling to the Future and what you will say or do in a situation that has not happened yet?

When we put our focus on Future events, or spend so much of our time re-living an incident from the past, we are missing the Moments and the Opportunities that are visiting us in the Now Moment. Do you ever Wonder if you have missed opportunities or Answers that might have shown themselves in one Moment in which you were not Present?

What does it feel like to be fully Present in the Moment of Now? Do you notice more of your current surroundings? Do you hear more conversation around you? Do you ever stop to ask yourself why you might be spending so much Mind Energy in the past or the Future?

If your Thoughts are often in the past, ruminating hurts, embarrassments, regrets, or re-writing a scenario, what is it about those Thoughts and memories that still needs Healing? Is there something you can do for yourself to Heal this memory? Can you simply and with Love let go of these Emotions and know that All is already Forgiven? When you are able to Heal something from the past, you will find your Thoughts no longer spend the same amount of time visiting that past.

If your Thoughts are often in the Future, writing possible situational scenarios, are you leaving yourself as an Open Vessel to receive Gifts that Future Moment has waiting for you? If you have already planned something in a Moment that has not arrived yet, are you narrowing your Spiritual focus when that Moment arrives? Will you, because the scene has already been written by you, miss the Love of your Life, a livelihood opportunity, or an Answer you’ve been seeking?

Our Thoughts of the Future or past are necessary for the Ego. The Soul does not need the past or Future and is in Love with the Now Moment.

This week, stay Aware of how often your Thoughts are not living fully in the Present.

Excercise your Mind this week, train your Thoughts to be Present Now in every Moment.

Notice the decrease in your stress level when you leave the Future of Unlimited Potential where it is, welcoming it with open arms when it actually arrives.

When a disturbing or hurtful memory arises, is it asking you to Heal that Moment, Forgive yourself, Forgive another? Notice the decrease in the distress in your Heart when you leave the past where it resides.

Stay Aware this week of each Moment that provides you with a new Soul entering your Life, or a new opportunity. Stay aware this week on participating fully in the Now Moments that provide Laughter, overwhelming Love, and new Knowledge/Truth.

Practice Healing and letting go of the past. Practice leaving the worries and Joys of the Future where they are.

Be in Love with the Now Moment.

THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK

April 3 2012

Spiritual Growth

We are all Spiritual Beings.  Teilhard de Chardin said “We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.”  This would mean that, though to thrive as a Human is important, to thrive as a Soul is Primary.  Our Soul growth and Evolution is the entire reason we are here in 3rd dimensional form.

Do you strive each day to stay in a “Spiritual place?”  Do you stay attentive to your Thoughts, your Emotions, your Actions, always attempting to do “right?”  Do you see yourself at times, “slipping” and falling back in your Spiritual Growth?  Do you have moments you feel disappointed in yourself or more painful, feel regret for something?  Do you, when you least expect it, feel Anger or Fear or Frustration with things you read in the media?

It’s easy to say that we will only hold Loving Thoughts and Compassionate Intentions but we are Human and more than any other example, we experience Moments of outrage, anger at Injustices we see in the World.  Are you able to see those Moments for what they are?  Do you succumb to the Siren call of that Emotional whirlpool and spin endlessly in the seeming righteous anger at wrongs that happen in the World?

As we desire each day to be Loving, Kind, Intelligent, and Just we will have days where something we said, or did, or Thought causes us disappointment in ourselves.  We must understand that these Moments are crucial to our Spiritual Growth.

Just like a road trip you might embark on, this Journey will present mismarked road signs, impassable highways, wrong turns.  And routes that test our Ability to decide the correct course to take to complete the Journey.

This is Spiritual Growth.  These moments are what ultimately raise us Higher, bring us closer to a Unified Consciousness.  Always remember, those Moments are your Soul’s Gift to you and they are no less valuable than your Moments of Joy, Ease and Bliss.  We must learn to Honor those trying Moments as significantly as all the other Moments.

Everything, in every Moment is occurring exactly as it’s meant to; can you Trust your Higher Self that this is so?  Can you Trust that those challenging Moments are equally as valuable to your Soul’s Growth as the “easy” Moments?

Be attentive to the opportunities this week to Forgive yourself for Moments of disappointment.

Use your angry, frustrated Energy this week to make a difference; express that in joining a protest that is a Just Cause; express that in signing a petition to change something.

Take a break from the media and headlines this week.

Know that Moments where you feel you’ve done less than you could have are some of the most significant Moments in your Spiritual Growth.

The positive difference you’ve made in the World is never undone.

Forgive yourself.  Honor yourself.  Thank your Soul, your Higher Consciousness.  Know that your Soul, in the dust of those Moments, has shined a little Brighter.

THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK

Mar 26 2012

The Ego Mind and Gratitude

Do you have full control over the mental response and reactionary Thoughts you have in each Moment?  We are learning much more now, from a new non-Freudian perspective, about what the Ego really is:  it is about Duality Thinking, needing to be “better” than someone else, and an absence of Gratitude.  Are you aware of how often in a day you allow thoughts of Gratitude into your second-nature thinking?  Are you aware of how often in a day you allow the Joyful Energy of Gratitude to be in your Heart?  We all have an Ego Mind that has been programmed.  The only purpose of the Ego is to survive.  We have been led to Believe that in order to survive, someone must win and someone must lose.  Do you find during the day that no matter how big or small the situation or issue, you are in a constant state of defensiveness?  Do you need to “one-up?”  The Ego’s second-nature responses are based in the Energy of Lack and Need.  If we realize that in each Moment, of each day we already have everything that we need and that we will survive no matter what someone else has or has done, only then can we begin to enter into a Higher Spirit that is required in Humanity’s Evolution.

“At the heart of all our challenges is the ego.

The ego is the part of the mind attached to the external, threatened by failure, and lives in constant comparison to others. In other words, the ego traps us in a haze of temporary, fearful, and past and future concerns.

The ego finds its identity through the external world: money, possessions, achievements, and status. The ego is on a mission to get more of any of those 4 things, so that in our comparison we can say, “yes, I am somebody.” “I’ve done this or I have that.” The silent message is, “what about you?””

from Jim Murphy, Inner Excellence Website

The best way to stop feeling lack – and a need to defend what one has and knows – is to feel Gratitude.  For everything.  In every Moment.  Gratitude for the Blue Sky, Gratitude for the Energy of your children in the morning, Gratitude for your Strength and Health, and yes, Gratitude for whatever amount of money you call income.  Gratitude for a stranger’s Smile, Gratitude for a family member or Friend who simply utters a spontaneous ”I Love You.”

Choose to observe this week that every Moment of your day Gifts you with something to be Grateful for.

Choose Moments this week to practice recognition of the Thoughts that determine your approach to a situation and whether those Thoughts are based in Duality, Ego and needing to be right, or are based in Gratitude, Listening, Love and a Peace in knowing you do not need to prove your Soul is worthy.

Choose to see, in a True Light this week, that you are not a Soul Created from Lack.  You are a Soul created out of Love and Gratitude.

Set a goal this week, when finding yourself in those Moments of Awakening, to notice how often you say “Thank You.”

Take Moments this week to deeply feel the inherent Joy that fills your Heart when authentic Gratitude is experienced.

Forgiveness

Forgiveness is one of the essential ingredients needed for our Evolution.  Yet, it often seems to be one of the most difficult challenges to overcome.  Do you Forgive easily?  Do you hold onto the hurts in your Heart with a lover’s Embrace?  Are there people and events still living in your Heart from too long ago that you cling to through the Illusion that the feelings of injustice will sustain you?  What would happen if you forgave those people and actions?   How does an unwillingness to Forgive nurture your Life?  Would you feel lost if you set Forgiveness in your Heart and purged the memories once and for all?

Choose one person from your Life this week and imagine what it would feel like to Forgive them.

Choose to remember that Forgiveness is your tool to dissolve the pain your Heart holds.

Remember, it is not your Soul and the Heart that beats within you that needs the memory.  It is the ego.

There is someone out there, somewhere, that also strives to Forgive you for something.

That space in your Heart that housed the Pain will be refilled with Liberation and Peace.

Choose Forgiveness this week.

Are you a Judgmental person?  Do you ever notice whether you have already made up your mind about someone or something before allowing an initial Understanding of what or who you are being presented with?  Most people would desire to believe they are Non-judgemental.  But does every single one of us, at one time or another, Judge even for a moment, something placed in front of us?

If we can disallow the defining Labels to enter our minds when observing something new, could we become more aware of the Judgement we exercise, and begin to disallow that in our Hearts?

As you become more Aware of Judgemental thoughts, notice how much more easily this Awareness helps you let go of the Labels you use.  Being Non-judgemental means being more Open to wonderful new things and Amazing new Possibilities.

This week, take 5-minutes each morning that you can, and begin your day with the following video.  It is from “J: Judge Not Today” from Creating Affluence: The A-to-Z Steps to a Richer Life, by Deepak Chopra.

Judge Not Today.

THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK

Mar 4 2012

A necessary ingredient to continue living inside Duality-Thinking is Labeling.  Do you ever stop to think about the labels we use every day of our Lives?  Can you see how this Labeling is the first stop in our Minds, before we determine someone or some situation is “good” or “bad?”  What if you found a way to start purging your Mind of labels?  Could you see a person or situation then, less in terms of Good and Bad?  If you purged labels such as conservative/liberal, gay/straight, Black/White, American/Middle-Easterner, Tea Partier/Progressive, 99%/1%, young/old, fat/skinny, cute/unnattractive, etc.  Stop to see what’s in your Mind and the words your thoughts embrace, before even allowing yourself to see if what/who is in front of you might provide a new piece of Knowledge, a new Revelation.  You might be in the Right place at the Right time, if you are open to something brand new, that has no name attached.

Are we really all enemies, constantly needing to ‘pick a side?’

Are we really all members of the Human Family, meant to listen and learn from each other?

Could we come together as a People more quickly around the World if we dismissed and no longer welcomed Labels into our Lives?

Would we hear the sound of that first shackle breaking, as we dismantle the Duality-Thinking of Us vs. Them?

Practice being in the Moment and observing the Reactions in your Heart, the Thoughts in your Mind when presented with each new wonderful situation and Person.  Can you begin to see others in a new Light, with no Label?

Practice seeing all beings around the World equally as Beautiful, Amazing and Intelligent as you are.  Practice seeing Possibilities everywhere.  We have so much to Share with each other, and we need each other, now more than ever before.

Peace

Take a close look at the Thoughts you have in a 24-hour day.  Most of us don’t stop to really hear the words we habitually think.  Did you know in these increasingly fast times in our Evolution, that it now only takes 17 seconds for the words you think, the thoughts you have to begin creating an event?  It now only takes 17 seconds for our Thoughts to Manifest a new piece of Reality.

Find moments to be fully and consciously aware of the words you are thinking.

Will the Energy of your Thoughts hurt someone when they are manifested?

Will the Energy of your Thoughts create Love and Healing for someone?

If your Thoughts were broadcast through a microphone to everyone around you, would you be at Peace with the words you are sending out into the Cosmos?

Enjoy the following short video and ponder…
