Zen things, gratitude, resistance, forgive, heart-warming story, and Abraham


# 1 – It was Thanksgiving here in the US just a few days ago, but of course we should give thanks and be grateful EVERY day for a wide variety of reasons, not the least of which is it promotes health and well-being. Read about how having an attitude of gratitude can literally change your DNA….

... whether it looks like a blessing or not, give thanks. Gratitude workshttp://selfhelphealth.wordpress.com/2014/11/28/gratitude-and-the-dna-connection/


# 2 – Insight and stimulation from Guy Finley…..

Resisting the States of Others

Key Lesson: The only way to be free of whatever it is that troubles you about someone else is to be free of that trouble within yourself.

Question: You teach that what troubles us about other people is that we have within us that quality we dislike in them, and that being around them stirs that quality in us. So, if this disturbance is around a person who abuses children, are you saying my resistance to that person is because I am like him or her, and that somewhere in me is the potential to be a child molester? Please help me understand this idea!

Answer: The wholeness of whatever is true must be seen; it cannot be comprehended by thought any more than it’s possible to experience the depth, breadth, and majesty of the Grand Canyon in words alone. What troubles us about any person, regardless of his or her psychological make-up, is what that person stirs in us… this can be because a similar quality dwells in the darkness of our own (as yet awakened) character, or the disturbance we feel in their presence can be caused by a negative state in us, born of some instant unconscious judgment of that character in the offending individual. And it’s worth noting that all judgment of others is due to resisting what that person makes us conscious of in ourselves. So, either way, the point is that whatever we feel in ourselves is always some aspect of our own nature, else we couldn’t feel it… and that to blame another for the negative states generated by our system is like hating a neighboring factory for the noise being generated in our own. It’s also worth mentioning that whatever the expressed deviant behavior observed may be, it’s usually the effect of some deeper unseen psychological/spiritual issue, and that many times what we feel and “fight” with (or blame) in someone else is different than what drives the exterior manifestation. For instance, all “bullies” are driven by fear, as is any act of arrogance.

# 4 – A heart-warming story that will restore your faith in humanity….



# 5 – The real meaning of success?

The achievement of anything that you desire must be considered success, whether it is a trophy or money or relationships or things. But if you will let your standard of success be your achievement of joy—everything else will fall easily into place. For in the finding of joy, you are finding vibrational alignment with the resources of the Universe.—Abraham

Livingry, be a lake, gift giving, gift ideas and discounts, Origins Deep Dive, and Abraham



# 1 – I love every quote of “Bucky’s” I’ve ever come across. What a man….what wisdom, what vision….


# 2 – Hey, why stop with a lake??…..Be an ocean!

An aging master grew tired of his apprentice’s complaints. One morning, he sent him to get some salt. When the apprentice returned, the master told him to mix a handful of salt in a glass of water and then drink it.

“How does it taste?” the master asked.

“Bitter,” said the apprentice.

The master chuckled and then asked the young man to take the same handful of salt and put it in the lake. The two walked in silence to the nearby lake and once the apprentice swirled his handful of salt in the water, the old man said, “Now drink from the lake.”

As the water dripped down the young man’s chin, the master asked, “How does it taste?”

“Fresh,” remarked the apprentice.

“Do you taste the salt?” asked the master.

“No,” said the young man. At this the master sat beside this serious young man, and explained softly,

“The pain of life is pure salt; no more, no less. The amount of pain in life remains exactly the same. However, the amount of bitterness we taste depends on the container we put the pain in. So when you are in pain, the only thing you can do is to enlarge your sense of things. Stop being a glass. Become a lake.”


# 3 – With the annual gift-giving season upon us, this seemed like a fitting article to highlight….

Do you attach strings to the gifts you give?

“Oh, how nice – just what I wanted. Thank you so much.” [Oh heck! How awful! What am I going to do with this thing now? It will have to be on display when she comes round or she’ll be hurt and annoyed.]

Have you ever been in this position? It can be very embarrassing, not to mention exasperating. It’s not fun to pretend you like it when really you can’t wait to dump it in the garbage or re-gift it to someone.

Getting the right gift for someone is also a difficult and stressful experience. I never know what to give JoAnn. And she’s no help. “I have all I need,” she says when I ask her what she wants for Christmas. (Last year she got a gift certificate for a spa day. She enjoyed it.)

But what is a gift? When is a gift not really a gift? There are three criteria for it to be a true gift:

1. You really do want to give it.
2. You are pretty sure that the person wants what you have to give.
3. No strings attached!

# 5 – Now here’s an example of real gift giving. What a great project….



# 6 – Hmmmm, here’s an interesting one from Abe to contemplate when you think that the world is unfair….

If it is true — and it is — that when I — meaning any point of Consciousness — asks, it is given; then can you not feel the perfection of the selfish ego? Every vantage point gets to ask, and every vantage point is answered. And when everyone is individually choosing and Source is answering, then what could be a more balanced world?—Abraham

# 1 – Grow flowers!


# 2 – A great post about letting go of radical self-reliance and watching what can happen…..

But we still have the power to take it into awesome. Let’s do it. Join me for an evening of intention, remembering your power-house self, letting go of struggle, and shifting into miracles.

And here’s something from Adoley Odunton at The Wellness Revolution, although I much prefer it be called The Gratitude Opportunity rather than Challenge :-)….


the gratitudechallenge5.jpg

As the holiday season begins, people are busy making plans for Thanksgiving, booking flights, arranging car trips and buying gifts for their loved ones. In the midst of all the activity, I invite you to go on an inward journey and join me and the members of our Intention Healing Circle in an 8-Day Gratitude Challenge.

This Challenge will help you maintain an Attitude of Gratitude in the face of everything that life deals you – unfair situations and seemingly unending challenges can be difficult at first but when gratitude is practiced consistently it is an amazing source of healing and transformation in our lives. Gratitude is a practice and a choice that we get to make every day.


For eight days we will consciously practice gratitude and actively embody it in thoughts, words and actions.


# 5 – This is pretty much the “Cliff Notes” version of Abraham’s on-going message….

Each and every component that makes up your life experience is drawn to you by the powerful Law of Attraction’s response to the thoughts you think and the story you tell about your life. Your money and financial assets; your body’s state of wellness, clarity, flexibility, size, and shape; your work environment, how you are treated, work satisfaction, and rewards—indeed, the very happiness of your life experience in general—is all happening because of the story that you tell.—Abraham


# 6 – And don’t forget to check out what’s happening at Self-help Health. The latest posts have to do with what you should know about vaccines and flu shots, and a groundbreaking movie you can watch for free until 11/22.

Healing mandala, nature pics, spiritual breakdown, encourage others, all connected, last quarter moon, and Abraham



# 1 –  A healing mandala from Keith Allen Kay at Quantum Fractal Energy Mandala…..



# 2 – da Vinci was ahead of the times in many ways. It’s now being proven by science that we are all inter-connected…..


# 3 – Wow, amazing, inspiring pictures….



# 4 – Three things best-selling author Elizabeth Gilbert of Eat.Pray.Love. says may be signs of a spiritual and emotional breakdown….

1. You’re Bored.

I feel like boredom is the first and quietest signal of spiritual despondency. I don’t just mean that you’re bored with your religious path; I mean that you’re bored with everything—bored with yourself, bored with human beings, bored with your work, bored with life. Some people accept boredom as normal, but I see it as a sign that you have completely lost touch with the real wonder that is exploding all around you in every moment. Because let’s be honest—this world is many things, but it ain’t boring. This world is beautiful, violent, extreme, dangerous, magnificent and mysterious. This world is also filled with millions of varied and incredible life forms, including human beings (the most creative, bizarre, unpredictable species that ever lived). If all that bores you, then your soul has really gone to sleep at the wheel. Start reviving your curiosity, and your spirit will have a chance to wake up again.

Go here for the other two signs: http://www.oprah.com/spirit/Elizabeth-Gilbert-Spiritual-and-Emotional-Meltdown


#5 – I love this one!


# 6 – Today is a potent last quarter moon, with lots of other astrological powerhouses in the mix, PLUS it’s my birthday! :-)

Friday morning’s Last Quarter Moon in Leo is quite powerful, a fitting configuration for the transition into the December cycle that is rapidly approaching, and that will feature another instance of Uranus and Pluto in perfect square alignment, the sixth of seven exact hits this mid-decade. While Uranus and Pluto have been doing their recent dance since June of 2012, the issues that this important aspect symbolizes, on both a personal and a cultural level, and resonating with their conjunction in the volatile1960’s, are getting more intense with the experience of the past few years. The stakes as well are getting higher, as a glance at the headlines shows. In addition to the intensity of their square closing to within two degrees, so that we really feel them, they are each aspected by Mars, Jupiter, the Sun and Moon in this quarter moon configuration, heightening the impact of their dynamic interaction. Because these powerhouse planets in combination stand for radical change in our own best long-term interest, and because they are located in the Cardinal signs of Aries and Capricorn, their impact on this decade – which I am referring to as “the Turbulent Teens” – is monumental. As the next installment of their square alignment draws near, and the month of December looms, we are all called to find within ourselves an appropriate response to the evolutionary quest to which we are summoned…

# 7 – A different perspective on aging….

It’s not about years. It’s not about age. It’s not about youth. It’s about decline. And decline is about alignment, or not. Decline is about, in this moment, which way am I forking? In this moment, which way am I forking? In this moment, which way am I forking? That’s all it’s about.-–Abraham

Mother Nature, be yourself, love because, unconditional love, free alternative health events, and Abraham



#1 – Mother Nature wows me again….

The beautiful Black Bat Flower, Tacca chantrieri, is a species of flowering plant in the yam family.


# 2 – A smile for the day….Hey, how about being yourself AND a pirate? Arrr, matey!


# 3 – I guess this is part of living in the Now….

“Only the human heart can live in present moment awareness. The human mind cannot, because its essential nature is to ponder the past and plan the future. This is why all wise beings encourage us to go beyond the mind into the timeless, boundless transcendence of heart-centered awareness.”
~David Simon

# 5 – Who, how and why do you love? I received a Note From the Universe (tut.com) recently that was stimulating…..basically says if you think you feel unconditionally loving toward someone, that’s not really true/so unless you can/do actually feel unconditionally loving towards EVERYONE. It seemed to fit nicely with Tip # 4. Here’s the Note….

Zirah, ever stop and realize that it’s impossible to feel unconditional love for any single person, until you can feel it for every single person?

After all, what differentiates them, except conditions?

You so can do this,
The Universe

Love them all, Zirah.


# 6 – A couple of free alternative health events being presented that you or someone you know may be interested in checking out….



# 7 – And you know how I like to end with some Abe :-)….

When you ask, it is given, every single time, no exceptions. You are beloved, blessed Beings who deserve good things—but it takes a self-convincing before you will allow good things.—Abraham

# 6 – And some stimulation from Abraham….

What better way could anyone spend money than back into the economy which gives more people work? What you call your economy is the exchange of human Energy. And so, think back a few hundred years about what your economy was in this nation. And what has changed? Have more resources been trucked in from other planets? Or have more people, over more time, just identified more things that they desire — and the Nonphysical Energy that is endless and infinite supplies that? We never hear any of you say, “Well, I have been well for so many years, that I’ve decided that I’m going to be sick for a while to allow some other people to be well.” Because you know that whether you’re well or not doesn’t have anything to do with them not getting enough wellness. You’re not using up the wellness and depriving them of it. And it is the same thing with the abundance. People that have managed to find vibrational harmony with abundance, so that it is flowing to them and through them — are not depriving anyone else of that abundance.—Abraham
