Trusting what is – Patience

One of the  greatest thing I’ve had to work with, for myself, has been patience. I have always been a very impatient person – even when it did not serve me well.

Courageous individuals – leaders – trust. They trust that everything’s exactly as it is supposed to be – they let go. They do not try to control things, events or people. Nor do they force their own ways – swim upstream. They go with the flow – with trust – and find pleasure in it. Trust lies at the core of all our relationships – without, theres is no foundation for growth.

“It’s fine to want things to happen in a proper and timely way. But what if you need to hang in there for several months in your current job before you can move on to a better one.  Now what?

Patience means handling delay, difficulty, or discomfort without getting aggravated. Circumstances are what they are, but patience protects you from their impact like a shock absorber. In contrast, impatience interprets circumstances as you being hindered or mistreated, so you feel frustrated, let down, or annoyed. imagesO6B4MEWVThen insistence comes in: “This must change!” But by definition you can’t fulfill that commandment (otherwise, there’d be nothing to get impatient about). Impatience combines all three ingredients of toxic stress: unpleasant experiences, pressure or urgency, and lack of control.

Impatience with others contains implicit criticism and irritation – and people want to get away from both of these. Just recall how you feel when someone is impatient with you. Or consider how others react when you are impatient with them. Impatience is dissatisfaction; it is resistance to the way it is. Patience senses a fundamental alrightness, the doorway to contentment. Impatience is angry; patience is peaceful. Impatience narrows down onto what’s “wrong,” while patience keeps you wide open to the big picture.

Impatience can’t stand unpleasant feelings; patience helps you tolerate physical and emotional discomfort. Impatience wants rewards now; patience helps you tolerate delayed gratification, which fosters increased success and sense of worth. Patience may seem like a superficial virtue, but actually it embodies a deep insight into the nature of things: they’re intertwining, messy, imperfectible, and usually not about you. Patience also contains a wonderful teaching about desire: wish for something, sure, but be at peace when you can’t have it. Patience knows you can’t make the river flow any faster.

“When you are tempted to lose patience with someone, remember how patient God is with you – all the time.”

Saturday’s Wisdom: Be True To Yourself

imagesETB5F8X1

I’ve come to realize that…

…there’s an tremendeous truth in the words of Viktor Frankl as he stated that “when we are faced with something we can not change, we are challenged to change ourselves.” There is absolutely no valid reason to struggle or fight against or for something as everything already exists within you and everything already is exactly as it is supposed to be – just being right, right now. It is a changequotechallenge to not struggle, to not try and control – force – things and to just let go without losing faith. It’s difficult to love and let this love go to where (s)he needs to in order to grow – yet it is the most profound gesture of love that one can show.

It’s heartbreaking to loose a loved one in any kind of way but somehow it’s also very comforting and beautiful to know that we are simply just spiritual beings currently living in a human (or other) skin and that we, by this, will soon cross paths again and again and again. There is no true separation – there is merely different roads that leads to the same end destination and although we choose to travel on these different roads, in the end, we will always end up being together. We are soulmates and that is why I so very well recognized my loved ones at once, why I did not need to spend time getting to know them – we’ve already met and been together many times before, in other shapes, forms and lifetimes – but simply just embraced the blessing of once again being given the wonderful opportunity to together grow spiritually. I don’t need time to get to know you my love – I already do because we’ve been together for so long and so many times! I just simply needed to find you again and …look, there you are baby!! As beautiful as always.

“A soulmate is someone who has locks that fit our keys, and keys to fit our locks. When we feel safe enough to open the locks, our truest selves step out and we can be completely and honestly who we are; we can be loved for who we are and not for who we’re pretending to be. Each unveils the best part of the other. No matter what else goes wrong around us, with that one person we’re safe in our own paradise. Our soulmate is someone who shares our deepest longings, our sense of direction. When we’re two balloons, and together our direction is up, chances are we’ve found the right person. Our soulmate is the one who makes life come to life.” – Richard Bach

I had a quantum moment some days ago. You know, one of those moments that comes through a sense of energy, an inner knowingness, an answer or in some other kind of ways when you simply feel, can identify oChange-Quoter “just know” that you’ve reached divine contact – this insight that suddenly has been imparted to you at the most perfect (often unexpected) time as an answer to a question you might not even be aware that you’ve asked. I simply love when this happens to me! Not only because these moments often completely change my view on something or about someone but also because they are very likely to be life-changing! I read once that “spiritual progress is not usually experienced as some event-changing shift but it is a gradual awakening composed of many shifts and realizations” and that’s exactly what these sudden moments of huge insight are – steps on the spiritual path. Quantum moments always reminds me of how amazing God’s grace works – things never are what they seem and the most unexpected always happens, as surprise (spiritual) gifts from God!

My mentioned quantum moment led me to a deep realisation that I had done a loved one wrong. This sudden insight of my own behaviour and actions made me feel ashamed and…not-so-good, mostly because I strongly believe that we should always and in all ways show the greatest compassion, deepest love and never-ending faith and loyalty towards our most loved ones and I felt that I had failed that – deeply. However, with nothing but loving thoughts in my mind and a great deal of faith in that “all is and always will be as it’s supposed to’”, I summoned up some courage and apologized to my loved one whom – as the most fascinating spiritual being he is – responded most gently with two simple words. Which, probably needless to say, makes me adore him even more! Anyway, in having my “moment” I reflected once again on how truly fantastic the divine, God or whoever/whatever definition you want to use, see to it that our past issues exist in order to support us on our spiritual path to a higher consciousness.

Everything we are or do in the Now is a result of the one we were or what we’ve done in the Past and it all gives us the opportunity to be or do better in our Tomorrow. There is a divine perfection in all and everything that ensures that we are given the chance to grow and fulfill the purpose for which we are intended. Nothing happens by accident and I find comfountitled changert in the knowledge that when we are faced with situations which we might have little or no control over, it is something which we ourselves should learn from it all. In other words, we are not powerless victims faced with an uncontrolled situation but powerful beings faced with yet another opportunity to take an honest look “inside”, learn and grow from our participation in and (re)action to/from the situation. Viktor Frankl called this “the last of the human freedoms – to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances“.

We are all divine beings and we all have all the qualities, the capabilities, the perfection as well as the imperfection to do and become everything that we are meant to – to share of our unique creation to the world – and at any given moment, in any given situation, we are blessed with the opportunity to do so. When you think of someone you love in this perspective – or all other spiritual beings for that matter, including yourself – how can you not feel love and only love for his/hers/its/yours entire being, with (im)perfections and all? …divine creations…just as God intended.

A wise person knows that perception…

imagesCA0416D2…shapes everything that happens in life. And perception is a matter of choice. Indeed, it’s a blessing to be able to choose how personal experiences and the world at large are viewed. As a result, we can choose to see peace, rather than conflict; love, rather than fear; abundance, rather than lack; and we can to see a divine plan, instead of random chaos. Abraham Lincoln is credited with wisely saying: “Most of us are just as happy as we make up our minds to be.” So very true.

“A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.” – Winston Churchill

Choose happiness and you will be happy. Choose to see the best in your team and they will be inspired by it. Choose to see other beings as fellow spiritual travellers and they will feel encouraged. Choose to see your employees as team members and they will fight for victory. It is truly amazing how fantastic and simple life really is. Don’t make it complicated – it’s so very easy.

It’s not personal

Each of us comes into this world with a particular mission, written within our souls. I have myimages own mission as you have yours. We might cross paths as our individual missions in one way or another may interact with eachother’s – however each and every single one of us will still be alone on our own spiritual journey in order to fulfill our own particular mission. And we all have our lessons to learn…our experiences and wisdom to gain. This means that we once or a couple of times in life say or do things that aren’t in the best of interest for our own spiritual growth nor for anyone else – it is however a step that needs to be taken on our journey as we mature and, like a baby taking it’s first steps, are navigating and trying to master something that is so much greater than ourselves. So don’t take anything anyone else’s doing personally as it is not you who are the Star of their show, it is themselves.

If you manage to master this blessing you’ll be able to share of your love imagesCAGT5V9Qbut still not be a target for someone elses harmful words or actions. You won’t need to put your trust in what other people do or say as you will not be affected by it – each and everyone must owe up to take responsibility for their own reality. You can choose to follow your heart always no matter what as no one will be able to harm you – enabling you to focus on how to share of your greatest gift, love.

If being faced with feelings of hurt, instead of choosing any of the “easier” options like feeling sorry for yourself, “paying back” or feeling resentment towards the one who “caused” you pain – in fact inflicted pain on him or herself – ask yourself “How am I going to grow from this? How can I use this to make me my most Divine self? What can I now contribute that I couldn’t have if I had never had this experience?” Embrace the experience – I know it ain’t easy every time but try –, vision the greater Divine picture and learn from it. Always remember, it really really isn’t personal!

 

As you think…

“You are the Supreme Being, and yet thinking  yourself to be separate from it, you strive to become united with it. What is stranger than this?” ~Ramana Maharshi

“Every thought you believe to be real, every emotional story you buy into, and every  childhood belief system you’re still living under the guise of, is creating the reality you’re experiencing.   Your mind is like movie screen that is perpetually receiving, regurgitating,  repulsing, and  reflecting a continuous bandwidth of images.  Your conscious awareness is  pure white light from the projector, which is not attached to or judging the  colorful images projected onto the screen.  Your ego, or self image, is the  fabric of the screen and it decides in every millisecond of your life, what  images, feelings, words and stories you believe to be true or false. It chooses  which images the primagesCAKJ9ABCojector should be focusing its attention upon,  which  ultimately determines the present moment reality you’re experiencing, as well as  experiences, people, and situations you tend to manifest into your life. You are not a victim to your life.  You have full reign over what you want  to create.  This light of pure awareness inside your projector can project  anything!  You are the director of your movie and you get to choose what story you want to believe is the truth, or just another fabrication  of the mind.  You are the producer of your show and can create heaven or  hell in any moment.  By focusing on what you want you create heaven, by  focusing on what you don’t want you create hell.  Either way, you are  forever going to be the conscious choice maker behind your experience of life in  each new moment.  Simply change what images, thoughts and emotions your  movie is focusing on, and you’ve changed your experience of life.  You are  the master of your reality. It really is that simple.

Your life is  meant to be this awesome magical adventure, where you are here to learn how to  become the manifesting master of your reality.  Inside  you body is a genetic DNA program that generates codes of information and energy  which are continuously  creating the structure of your physical body.  Physicists have discovered  that these  strands are not fixed, solid or stuck by any means.  They are constantly  altered and influenced by the thoughts you’re thinking and the beliefs you hold  to be true. Your body is a sea of pure energy made of conscious quantum particles, which  responds  to whatever is happening in your mind because they are your mind.   Your mind is not contained in your head, its found throughout your body and  within the sea of energy all around you, and it’s VERY powerful.  When you change your beliefs about your body,  and visualize it to be a certain way, your body listens and responds according.

Manifesting your dreams and desires is an ancient spiritual science. We were all born as sacred manifesting magnets in this beloved quantum playground, where the name of  the game is “like attracts like”.  Whatever you continuously say, think and feel is what you attract to you.  Your  life is manifesting itself  through you right now.  This body that you’re living and breathing in, is already a super Whatever-the-mind-of-man-can-conceive-and-believe-it-can-achieve-Napoleon-Hillcharged highly powered magical manifesting machine.   It’s always being held in a loving embrace by the Divine Ocean around it,  which is constantly responding to how your body is feeling, thinking and  believing your life to be.  Your magical  vehicle is continuously forming the experiences you’re about to have in the near  future. This thought you’re having (right now) about your expected “tomorrow” is  creating a receptive magnetic space for that specific future to  be aligned with you. If you look deeper inside your mind, you’ll see there are many many dreams and  desires that you want to manifest.  Some of them are headed your way very  quickly, while others are buried deeper and will take a longer time.  As  you learn how to relax your body, quiet your mind and find that peaceful center  in the middle of the cyclone of whirling thoughts, a magical shift  will occur. You’ll  see that your desires actually manifest at the perfect  place and time.  There is an amazing synchronicity that governs this  Universe, you could call it your “synchro-destiny”.

This  synchrodestiny is  that feeling that every thing, thought, person and purpose is perfectly aligned.   When you meditate enough, your mind will tend to become very quiet, still and  solitary, and then you’ll experience this divine perfection everywhere you go.   The moment the mind surrenders it’s battle of fighting the river and swimming  upstream against the current, you begin enjoying every minute of the ride.   As the mind stops trying to get somewhere quicker instead of enjoying the God  Source that is here now, the sweet sacred synchronicities of life are found and  felt in each new moment. Meditation  is simply a deep conscious relaxation into what is here now.  When you  make relaxation a priority in your life, you are taking manifestation sincerely,  and will find yourself able to manifest miraculous things.   It all happens when you practice learning how to relax, open up and feel as if  you are receiving your desired dream manifestation now.   A deep trusting creative feeling will take over your life and you’ll find each  moment you are living in this sweet sacred flow, relaxing down the great river.

imagesCA2WSRH9By simply  thinking about the most loving, sacred and divine healing source of energy you  can imagine, your mind and body instantly tends to relax.  The  mind realizes how futile all its efforting is, and just lets go of its endless agenda.   A calm spacious field of energy starts expanding  within you and settles in all around you.  You realize  that this deep peaceful feeling is where you really wanted to arrive anyway, so the desired outcome  you desperately wanted no longer takes precedence.  It is this deep healing  feeling of relaxation is the golden secret to raising your consciousness so you can keep your  thoughts directed on what you want, and off of what you don’t want.   Relaxation is the key to making your dream life come true.

I find that  many people get frustrated when I tell them to let go, relax and let their  desires come to them. Their brain has been trained their whole life  to work hard and strive for what they desire, and they fear being unmotivated  and lazy.  It may first feel absolutely  redundant and backward to think you can just relax and receive something huge,  like a million dollars.   Yet, the people who win the lottery  jackpot  do it every week.  They simply sit back with great excitement as the money  pours into their life.   The important thing to remember here is that they did believe at some point  it was possible to win, which is what motivated them to buy that winning ticket.

Ultimately,  it  doesn’t matter how small or big your desire is of what you want to manifest.   Anything is possible. Bigger dreams are not necessarily harder to manifest than  smaller dreams, they just take more patience, love and your precious focus. The  real reason bigger desires often take longer to manifest, is because you have to  let go of your smallness to let in something that big.  They require more faith and positive  emotion to accept as the living “truth” rather than smaller desires.   However, with enough  creativity, faith and patience, anything can be manifested in this  quantum Ocean that you’re always connected to.  This is the secret to  integrate; that you are never separate from the Ocean of existence. The Universe is  a multi-dimensional extension of you, and you are a personal extension of it!   The ocean is in the drop, and the drop is in the ocean.  The deeper you can accept this  truth inside your being, the easier it will be for you to effortless see your  life’s greatest dreams and fantasies manifest  into reality.

In order to become a living manifesting master, you must understand on a very Earthly  rooted and Universal cosmic  level that you e_chinese_symbols_proverbs_generosityare not separate from the Ocean of Existence which is brimming  with consciousness.  You are the center of your Universe, the hub of this infinite wheel filled with energy and consciousness. You are The Source of this eternal field of limitless  probabilities.   When you meditate enough, you’ll tap into the greatest source of consciousness  within you, which is at the very center of “you”.  Here you’ll  discover first hand that you are  governing the final reality around you, manifesting everything you are experiencing.

You’ll know  you are a manifesting master when you’ve  integrated this knowledge into every waking, breathing moment of your day and  evening.  You’ll feel a complete “oneness” with the Ocean all the time.   You’ll no longer buy into the fear based systems of the world, which are only  meant to test you and make you stronger.  Sure, the mind may try to return  back to limited separation consciousness, yet the power of the Ocean is too  great and will cause the ego to submerge.  Once you surrender your pride,  your personal agenda, and your emotional body to the all loving embrace of this  divine Universe, the ego becomes so thin that it doesn’t get in the way anymore.   With the ego out of the way, you’ll see your thoughts are forming your reality  very quickly and with no effort at all.

Perhaps the  most interesting aspect of all on this manifesting journey is the topic of  predestination.  Since we live in a world filled with duality; meaning if there’s  hot there must be cold, if there’s joy there must be sadness, if there are  mountains there must be valleys, and if there  is free will there must also be predestination.  Some people resist the  idea that everything is predestined because they feel it destroys their feeling  of being totally in control of their life.  Yet, they have seemed to forget one  small detail here, that they are deeply molded by the past feelings, beliefs, thoughts, actions  and stories they have been repeating throughout their entire life.  Almost  90% of the thoughts you think today, are going to be the same types of thoughts  you had yesterday. Sure, you  always have  the free will to decide who or what is in control of how your day is going to  unfold to some degree, yet if you’ve been believing life is hard, grueling and challenging  prison, your attitude  about the future is going to be quite grim and you’ll have a tendency  to flow down that same river of suffering.  The secret to manifesting  thoughts that support a life filled with love, abundance and deep intimate heart  connections, is abiding in the very source of the source where all thoughts are  born.  The source of your thoughts is so deep inside you, that you have to  surrender everything you know as your “reality” just to get a glimpse of it.   Yet, when you do find the source, you’ll be able to redirect the flow in a more  positive and exciting direction.

al-inspiring-quote-on-being-authenticThe biggest  truth you can find in life is always the most liberating.  The greatest truth  I’ve discovered so far is that there are always three sides to every coin.  There are always  at least 3 realities, perspectives and life paths we can manifest in each given  moment.  One is that your entire life is predestined to turn out a certain way.  Two is  that you have complete  free will to create anything you want to manifest at any time.  Three is  that a liberating paradigm that is every flowing in a balanced state between these two  polar extremes.  In this third  side of the coin, you are riding the razors edge of life and are not buying into  either paradigm of free will or predestination as the ultimate truth.

You realize that the edge is what  takes you beyond the truth, beyond the mind, beyond reality, and into the  formlessness that is your very soul.  It’s living from this spiritually  awakened space that you find life flows in the most abundant, magical and  amazing ways.  You are then truly capable to effortlessly and consciously  manifest anything you  want with pure ease and joy.  You are not attached to anything of this  world, because you are  living as the guru of your life, in a perpetual state of self confirmation,  riding the waves of desire, on an Ocean of bliss all the way home.” I love it! It’s written by Jafree Ozwald, “You are Always manifesting your reality“.

It’s Not Luck

Whatever happens in your life – good or bad – doesn’t come by way of luck, lack of luck, fate, karma or sins of your ancestors. What happens in your life is up to you and the choices you choose to make. And it’s these very choices that will either work in harmony with the natural Laws of the Universe or will act dysfunctionally against these very same laws.

Precious life

It’s only when we truly know and understand that we have a limited time on earth — and that we have no way of knowing when our own time is up – that we will begin to live each day to the fullest, as if it was the only one we had.” – Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
