Flow your soul
Your life will be transformed when you
Make peace with your shadow.
Your soul is requiring you to heal deeper,
To elevate past the hurt, to transcend beyond
What happened, to let go of what and who no
Longer serves you, to protect your energie daily,
To get the lesson, to forgive yourself,
To love yourself, to love yourself unconditionally
And to honor your bodytemple; all in order to thrive
And vibrate higher daily.
Building a sand castle
We are like children building a sand castle .
We embellish it with beautiful shells, bits of wooddrift, and pieces of colored glass.
The castle is ours; off limits to others.
We're willing to attack if others threaten to hurt it.
Yet despite all our attachment, we know that the tide will inevitably come in and sweep the
Sand castle away.
The trick is to enjoy it fully but without clinging, and when the time comes, let it dissolve back
Into the sea.
- Pema Codron
Weather and the four noble truths
In the Buddha's first teaching - called the four noble truths - he talked about suffering. The first noble truths says that it's part of being human to feel discomfort.
Nothing in its essence is one way or the other. All around us the wind, the fire, the earth, the water, are always taking on different qualites; they're like magicians.
We also change like the weather, we are fluid, not solid. And so we suffer.
The second noble truth says that resistance is the fundamental operating mechanism of what we called ego, that resisting life causes suffering. Tradionally kt's said that the cause of suffering is clinging to our narrow view, which is to say, we are addicted to me.
We resist that we change and flow like the weather that we have the same energy as all living things. When we resist, we dig in our heels. We make ourselves really solid. Resisting is what 's called ego.
- Pema Chodrön
No permanence is ours.
We are a wave that flows
To fit whatever form its finds.
- Hermann Hesse
Investigate in the dark places
It takes great faith
In the unknown
The dark places
In our own being.
The person you'll have the hardest time opening
To and truly loving without reserve is yourself.
Once you can do that,
You can love the whole universe unconditionally.
The more honest and authentic we are,
The more deeply we go into the mystery of our
Suffering is how life tells you that you are resisting
Or misperceiving what is real and true.
What's it like to step out of resistance?
The biggest barrier to awakening is the belief that it is something rare.
Full awakening simply means that we perceive from the perspectieve ofSpirit -
From the view of oneness - all the tinme.
We're always held in the divine lresence, always.
The light of awareness itself is the deepest transformative agent
And the deepest alchemy takes place in tbe willingness to stay conscious
To our own unconsciousness.
Before awakening, there's theory.,
After awakening you knew.
When you stop resisting, you see that what seems frightening is actually the absolute beauty of reality. The more honest and authentic we are, the more deeply we go into the mystery of our own being.
Ask yourself: How can I be a more loving presence for whatever arises?
There is a whole other state of consciousness, a state of consciousness that isn't of the world of duality. This is the state of consciousness that Jesus referred to as ' The Kingdom of Heaven.'
Ignorance and alienation
We have long ago forgotten what it means to contemplate some-thing. With the click of a computer-mouse we can get the answer, or what promises to be the answer, to almost any question we can imagine. All of the world's most ancient spiritual teachings are but a click or download away, and yet we remain so lost to ourselves, so cut off from what nourishes the soul, that we are collectively suffocating under the weight of our ignorance and alienation from the sacred dimension of life.
Make no mistake about it- enlightenment is a destriuctive process. It has nothing to do with becoming better or being happier. Enlightenment is the crumbling away of untruth. It's seeing through the facade of pretense. It's the complete eradiction of everything we imagined to be true.
There comes a time when the bubble of ego is popped and you can't get the ground back for an extended period of time. Those times, when you absolutely cannot get it back together, are the most powerful times in our lives.
- Pema Chodron
Call on your life
May your eyes open up to the very real and specific call on your life. May His Word come alive in you in a way that calls you out of the boat, over the mountain, and into your next place of promise.
Something is going to come out of this. Something new. This can end you up in a whole new place. A much more open place.
Somebody, somewhere is depending on you. To do what God has called you to do.
Wait and watch because God is still working,
The Universe whispered in my ear- continue to share your heart and I promise when the time is right, I will deliver you the most amazing love..... just believe.
The idea of you
May you begin to hear with heavenly ears the song heaven sings over you .
May you believe with all your heart - that God intends to restore what the enemy has stolen from you.
May you begin to know on a deeper level how important and precious your faith is to God an may you begin to li e like God's promises are absolutely true.
You couldn't be more loved if you tried.
He's sold on tne idea of you.
Test and testimony
God is going to bless you beyond belied.
He is going to turn your lack into plenty,
Your test into a testimony and your confusion
You're going to make it.
I will make a way when it looks impossible.
I am turning your pain into power,
Your fears into focus,
And your difficulties into determination
Put your trust in me.
I have a great plan into your life.
The more yoy trust me, the more I amazes you.
Who you really are
I truly believe that every single person has to go through something that absolutely destroys them so they can figure out who they really are,
The tragedy of life is not death but what we let die inside us while we live.
Don't forget : fear is the cheapest room in the house.
I'd like to see you living in better conditions.
