In This Era of technology, in this atomic age, the values have changed.
We have learned that we are the guests of existence, travelers between two stations.
We must discover security within ourselves.
I see so many people looking for approval by how many likes they have on their daily social media posts.
Hoping that maybe today they can feel secure within their skin, they are putting their security in others.
During our short span of life we must find our own insights into our relationships with the existence in which we participate so briefly.
Otherwise we cannot live.
This means, as I see it, a departure from the materialistic view of the 20th century.
It means reawakening of the spiritual world, of our inner life of religion.
I don’t mean religion as a dogma or as a church, but as a vital feeling.
Accept others just as they are. Most of all, Accept yourself …… for you, hold the whole world within you.
Be great in all that You are!
Jesus said it best….Luke 9:48 ~The Message
“You become great by accepting, not asserting. Your spirit, not your size, makes the difference.”
“To be alone with silence is to be alone with God” ~Samuel Miler Hageman
Something that is enjoyed!
Usually the senses bring in so much sight, sound and other things to us that they occupy most of our time.
But to sit in silence now and then, with the outside world withheld, means to cut all this off and free the mind so that it can become itself.
I’ve been asked, “You just sit and think?”
Well…, No,….not exactly,
Thinking involves words which are echos of sound from memories deep within.
I am meaning,… detaching the mind from all the outside activity so that in senses there is nothing there but itself.
There is a great amount of power in this kind of silence.
Trying to describe it would be pointless since we each have our own interpretation of this state of being.. My answer would be to try it yourself.
So much time and energy are being wasted when we allow the echos of the outside world to invade our inner silence.
The word meditation in my opinion is a middle state of being.
Kinda alike a cruise control for the mind. Once you know you’re safe in a lane which is wanted you allow yourself to switch on the cruise control, the same is done when you want the silence of mind.
In this space you can and will find yourself.
Safely tucked away waiting to be rediscovered by you.
The silence is Yourself in the most pure form of Just…., Being.
Learn who you truly are, beyond all the noise, quiet the consciousness which is forever yourself.
The only way to know the peace this brings is to try it yourself.
Much Love and Peace !!!
“Every wish is like a prayer to God“. ~Elizabeth Barrett Browning
If I had the magic gift like Tinker Bell I’d flit into the mind of my friends and family leaving this prescription for happiness.
Stop the habit of wishful thinking and start the habit of thoughtful wishes.
I would sweep away al those dreary office signs that say “Think” for another that shout “WISH”!
Wishes are thoughts that vibrate with life and eager for action. They have the power to produce light and beauty.
It seems like when ever I look up into the night sky I will see a quick stream of light. A shooting star.
Sadly I have always given my wishes to someone else thinking they could use it more than I. Now I know Those stars are for me just as they are for you.
They are a reminder that our dreams are waiting for us to claim and all the blessings to come with.
Start wishing for all the creations you have within your imagination. I did…they are starting to come true more beautifully than I could ever have imagined.
“God says: Take what you want and pay for it!” ~Spanish Proverb
Life has a law of balances.
Think of it like this.
Do you want to be be famous? Very well, then spend every waking hour in pursuit of fame. It will show up on the other side of the balance in time spent and sacrifices made. Is it riches you want? Think about money every day, study it, give your life to it, and the balance will be weighed with gold, but at the cost of other things.
Maybe you want to be wise.That will also be weighed out.
It will include a good life, a pursuit of knowledge, and a uncompromising love of truth.
Everything has its price.
We are familiar of this in our daily lives.
We go to the super market for items that we will use to feed ourselves.
As we walk up and down the rows we grab different food items that we all end up bringing to the cashier. We then pay for the items that we will enjoy later around a dinner table.
So with the balance of our lives: on one side, our heart’s desire; on the other side of the scales, the reckoning. When the scales are even, you may take out what you have bought. Sometimes the price seems high.
But remember, you must pay for the character and quality of your goal as well as for the achievement of it. The law is simple and it is just; you may have what you want- but you must pay for it.
Nothing is free
“That which we are, we are…” ~Alfred, Lord Tennyson
It can be very difficult and very painful if you don’t like yourself.
Most people do not like themselves at all.
They distrust themselves, and put on masks of pomposities.
They quarrel and boast and pretend and are jealous because they do not like themselves.
But mostly because they Do Not even know themselves to form a true liking, and since we automatically fear and dislike strangers, we fear and dislike our stranger-selves.
Once you like yourself you will be released from the secret prison of self-contempt.
I wish we could all be so.
If we could learn to like ourselves even a little, maybe our cruelties and angers might melt away.
Maybe we would not have to hurt one another just to keep our ego chin’s above water.
“Her wounds of silent tears
showing those of us who love her,
That her sweetly fierce soul is
forever growing”. ~sweetlyfiercesoul
“O wad some Pow’r the giftie gie us to see oursels as ithers see us!”
“Sometimes we find a clue in some chance remark made by an old friend.
Maybe something we’ve read sparks a glimpse of who we really are.
Fleeting thoughts which we meditate on through out the day
Bringing us closer to who we are.
Bit by bit self-knowledge grows.
An Awareness of all things, “self”
It does not come easy and perhaps this very awareness of the difficulty sustains us,
Spurs us on toward the ever receding goal.
For the self-knowledge we seek
rising above our social vanities and pride and the impressions we make is a full-time, lifelong job.”
