# 6 – And a good reminder from Abe…..

Most people do not realize that as they continue to find things to complain about, they disallow their own physical well-being. Many do not realize that before they were complaining about an aching body or a chronic disease, they were complaining about many other things first. It does not matter if the object of your complaint is about someone you are angry with, behavior in others that you believe is wrong, or something wrong with your own physical body. Complaining is complaining, and it disallows improvement. — Abraham

 

Enjoy, and please join us tomorrow at 9 pm your local time, if you’d like to tap into the group energy for the global meditation focused on bringing more peace, harmony and coherence to the planet and her people!

2% Mindset, loving back, deer, good advice, Santa’s elves?, and musical transcendence


Well, this is one where, no matter what I tried, the spacing and formatting had a mind of its own, so pardon if the post looks a little jumbled in places :-)….. 

 

TIPS FOR TODAY:

 

# 1 –

 

# 2 – From Rob Brezsny’s newsletter and book Pronoia……

The Beauty and Truth Lab would like to remind you that all of creation loves you very much.
Even now, secret and not-so-secret allies are cooking up mysteries that will excite you and incite you for years to come.
Even now, the Earth, moon, and sun are collaborating to make sure you have all you need to make your next smart move.
But here’s the loaded question: Are you willing to start loving life back with an equal intensity? The adoration it offers you has not exactly been unrequited, but there is room for you to be more demonstrative.
Half of the art of pronoia is about being improvisationally receptive to life’s elaborate scheme to shower you with blessings. The other half is about learning to be a co-conspirator who assists life in doling out blessings —- to help everyone else get exactly what they need, exactly when they need it.
# 3- Oh, there’s something about this image that is so sweet, innocent and evocative. Really touches my heart and soul….
Image may contain: tree and outdoor

# 4 – Good advice!
“As a bee seeks nectar from all kind of flowers, seek teachings
everywhere. Like a deer that finds a quiet place to graze, seek seclusion
to digest all that you have gathered. Like a madman beyond all limits, go
wherever you please and live like a lion completely free of all fear.”– Ancient Tibetan text
# 5 – Some humor to “Light-in” your way for a joyous holiday season…..
# 6 – This is a great article about the transcendence of music and Helen Keller’s experience of “hearing” Ode to Joy. Her words are like a symphony in and of themselves. Food for the soul, especially if you listen to Ode to Joy when you’re through reading!

Wishing you an inspired and inspiring holiday season!

10 quotes, worry vacuum, progress, love story, and Abe


 

TIPS FOR TODAY:

 

# 1 – Ten type-written quotes, thanks to a post on Oprah.com…..

See them all here: http://www.oprah.com/inspiration/Inspiring-Quotes-Written-on-Typewriters

 

# 2 – Here’s something that was featured in Brain Johnson’s Optimizer newsletter. Especially like the 3rd to the last sentence…..very good point to make….

THE ULTIMATE WORRY VACUUM MACHINE

“Researchers conducting the Zen meditation study wanted to know if meditation practice changed people’s ability to recover from the intrusion of a word that unexpectedly appeared on the computer screen, which would strongly suggest that meditation improved recovery from the distractions induced by spontaneous thought as well. After the interruptions, the experienced meditator’s brains did indeed return faster to a relaxed state than non-meditator’s brains. Intensive meditation practice seems to reduce the elaborative thinking that normally occurs when we evaluate a thought and meditators are able to clear their minds of distractions more quickly than those who don’t meditate.

Obviously, this type of thought control could be useful in dealing with worries that arise in stressful testing situations. Worries about screwing up often cause flubbed performances because they use up valuable working-memory resources that could otherwise be devoted to test taking. By training the brain to discard negative thoughts, you can thwart the negative effects of stress. Discarding these thoughts is not the same as trying to ignore them or dismiss or suppress them, which uses up working-memory. When a worrisome thought arises, you acknowledge it, name it (as if actually identifying it and writing it down), but then let go of it. You don’t attach any more brainpower to it.”

Sian Beilock
from Choke

 

#3 – Oh, this one about ACIM is a good one to ruminate on…..

 

# 4 – Wow, a great story…..short and sweet. If you are an animal lover you may need to have a hanky at the ready……

# 5 – And from Abe…..

You think that the goal is to be over there, and we say the goal is the journey over there; the goal is the fun you have along the way on your way to over there. — Abraham

Happiness, Tama Kieves, hard hat hero, Rumi, behavior change, and dragons


 

TIPS FOR TODAY:

 

# 1 – Yep, that’s the way to do it!

happiness

 

 

# 2 – This takes a few minutes to read, but I think it’s well worth it and contains such nuggets as “you’re looking w/ the mind for answers of the heart,” and talks about the need to be care-filled, rather than careful, how we try to cobble together answers just to relieve the discomfort of not knowing, and how even pain has a purpose, message and an opportunity. Good one, Tama Kieves!

http://tamakieves.respond.ontraport.net/Mojo-Message-May-2016

 

 

#3 – A great story for you animal lovers out there…..

http://www.care2.com/causes/this-man-may-wear-a-hard-hat-but-he-sure-has-a-soft-spot-for-dogs.html

 

 

# 4 – I love this one from Rumi……

Be a lamp, or a lifeboat, or a ladder.
Help someone’s soul heal.
Walk out of your house like a shepherd.

~ Rumi

 

 

# 5 – Check out this interesting post at Self-help Health about healing illness by changing your behavior…..

https://selfhelphealth.wordpress.com/2016/09/18/healing-illness-by-transforming-your-behavior/

 

 

# 6 – More lovely inspiration….

“Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love.” – Rainer Maria Rilke

Purpose, free health events, Meditation 2.0, life and death, perception


 

TIPS FOR TODAY:

 

# 1 – A good one from Eckhart Tolle…..

 

# 2 – Check out the latest post at Self-help Health for a number of free events, including Radical Beauty from Deepak Chopra and The Detox Project from Health Talks On-line…..

https://selfhelphealth.wordpress.com/2016/09/12/radical-beauty-m…upressure-points/

 

# 3 – And speaking of free events, you may want to sign up for this one being offered by Craig Hamilton, but you’ll need to hurry since it happens tomorrow…..

By now, you’ve probably tried meditation practice in the hope that it might bring you closer to the awakening you’ve sensed is possible.

But you’ve probably also noticed that although meditation can help us become calmer, more centered and less reactive, it rarely leads to the depth of spiritual awakening we’ve tasted in our most profound moments.

If that’s been your experience, too, I want to invite you to a free online seminar I’m offering to share a radical new approach to meditation that goes beyond the limitations of most meditation practices, and can even give us direct and consistent access to awakened consciousness:

Meditation 2.0 – The Miracle of Direct Awakening

In this 75-minute webinar, I’m going to share the surprising truth I’ve learned in three decades of meditation research–and the unexpected discovery that is revolutionizing the way I teach spiritual practice and awakening.

Indeed, the practice of “direct awakening” I’m going to be introducing is such a radical departure from the meditation most of us have been taught, that it’s really more accurate to think of it as an evolution of meditation. Which is why I’m calling it Meditation 2.0.

 

# 4 – Oh wow, very short, but lots to think about here….

“If the doors of perception were cleansed, every thing would appear to man as it is, Infinite.” – William Blake

 

# 5 – I found this video on life and death so profound and evocative. FYI, you may need to have a hanky at the ready…..

 

Enjoy!

Smart vs wise, wear love, 3 little bears, true assistance, story/theme and Abe


 

TIPS FOR TODAY:

 

# 1 – Good one from Dr Sue Morter…..

It’s Only Smart

It’s only smart to quit this job.
It’s only smart to move from here.
It’s only smart to end this relationship.
It’s only smart to start that business.
It’s only smart to invest in this stock.
It’s only smart to buy that house.

It’s only smart, but it’s ONLY smart. Smart isn’t necessarily Wise.

Be sure you consult your most solid adviser when deciding such life experience defining things: Your Heart, Your Core, Your Gut, Your Wisdom Center.

Nothing serves us more fully than to learn the biggest lesson of why we are here in the first place: To connect the Mind, Heart, and Gut Wisdom with the Field of Infinite Possibilities.

We feel our way there; we don’t think our way there.

You are more brilliant than you think, more brilliant than you CAN think.

 

# 2 – Yep!

 

# 3 – More about your “story” from one of the daily messages during Deepak Chopra’s recent 21-Day Meditation Series. I like the insight about “changing your theme is more effective than trying to fix yourself one issue at a time.” Plus, “fixing yourself” is such a yucky context to be living in, regardless….

Transformation Is About Your Personal Story

“You write your life story by the choices you make.” ― Helen Mirren

We are all living a personal story, and every story has ups and downs, low points and high points. But what’s important is the theme that structures and guides our story.

When your story has positive, life-supporting themes, you have found the key to transformation. Changing your theme is more effective than trying to fix yourself one issue at a time. The most positive themes include lightness, worthiness, self-acceptance, evolution, and love.

Your theme should be aimed at making you feel good every day. It should open new possibilities. It should give you optimism that you are being renewed.

 

# 4 – And you’ll always be appropriately dressed if you…..

This great #bible #quote that I felt the urge to share with all of you! View more here: www.QuoteTheLord.com:

 

# 5 – Good reminder from Abraham…..

If you intend to be of assistance, your eye is not upon the trouble but upon the assistance, and that is quite different. When you are looking for a solution, you are feeling positive emotion— but when you are looking at a problem, you are feeling negative emotion.–Abraham

 

# 6 – HA! There’s no Goldilocks around, but this video with 3 little bears is such fun to watch!
