# 3 – From the recent free 21-day meditation series offered by Deepak and Oprah…..

The mind game consists of the tricks your mind plays on you, making you see reality according to old memories, fears, wounds, prejudices, outworn beliefs, second-hand opinions, and early conditioning. When you are aware your mind is filtering your reality based on the past, you can change it with that awareness. In fact, awareness is the change.” — Deepak Chopra

 

# 4 – Trippy and cool. Life is a vortex, not just rotation. What a universe! They say that all the plants and life forms here are based on spirals, but who thought that the sun was part of that, too?! Makes sense though.

 

 

# 5 – From Rob Brezsny’s newsletter……..

In his book *Perfect Love, Imperfect Relationships,* psychotherapist John Welwood writes, “Psychological work focuses more on what has gone wrong: how we have been wounded in our relations with others and how to go about addressing that.

“Spiritual work focuses more on what is intrinsically right: how we have infinite resources at the core of our nature that we can cultivate in order to live more expansively. If psychological work thins the clouds, spiritual work invokes the sun.”

Also from his newsletter….

“Pain motivates you to grow? OK. But maybe you don’t need as much of that stuff as you used to. Maybe you could actually start learning more and more from — gasp! — pleasurable experiences.”

 

# 6 – Wow, amazing and powerful experience to listen to this…..

# 7 – And a good one to end on…..

 

 

Enjoy!

Rumi and the Universe on Love, wise teacher, secret lives of trees, alternative flours, docu-series on diabetes & obesity, flu remedy and using your gifts


 

PICKS FOR TODAY:

 

# 1 – You can’t go wrong with Rumi!

No automatic alt text available.

You have within you more love
than you could ever understand.
There is a place within your heart
which is brimming over with love.
Sow the seed of love and you’ll be rewarded
with the most incredible feeling of love
dancing in your heart.

When love comes suddenly and taps
on your window, run and let it in,
but first shut the door of your reason,
even the smallest hint chases love away,
like smoke that drowns the freshness
of the morning breeze.
Rumi — The Master of Love

 

# 2 – One teacher’s strategy for stopping school shootings. We need more people in the world as wise, perceptive and caring as this….

# 3 – One of my Notes From the Universe…..

Each person in your life is there for a reason, and that reason always has something to do with love.

Which is pretty much all you ever need to know, right?

Like me,
The Universe

 

# 4 – A short video about how animals are such good teachers about the power of giving and receiving….

“The world is already split open, and it is in our destiny to heal it, each in our own way, each in our own time, with the gifts that are ours.” – Terry Tempest Williams in “When Women Were Birds”

Thoughts, Pema Chodron, Mother Nature, good news, and Abe


 

PICKS FOR TODAY:

 

# 1 –

 

# 2 – 12 quotes from Pema Chodron, including this…..

Feelings like disappointment, embarrassment, irritation, resentment, anger, jealousy, and fear, instead of being bad news, are actually very clear moments that teach us where it is that we’re holding back. They teach us to perk up and lean in when we feel we’d rather collapse and back away. They’re like messengers that show us, with terrifying clarity, exactly where we’re stuck. This very moment is the perfect teacher, and, lucky for us, it’s with us wherever we are. ― Pema Chödrön

# 5 – This is a really good one from Abe to sink your teeth into and wrap your mind around….

The choices that others make cannot negatively impact your experience unless you include them in your experience through your attention to them. Things come to you only through your Vibrational invitation—and they remain only by your continuing attention to them.

Your Universe is based upon freedom. Freedom for everyone to choose what they give their attention to, and therefore what they choose to experience. And your interaction with one another provides a contrasting basis that assures continual expansion.

When others achieve Vibrational alignment with something they desire, they in no way deprive you of your desires. If your time-space reality has inspired a desire within you, it is certain that your desire can be fulfilled, for your Earth environment has the potential of satisfying the essence of all desires.—Abraham

Hip(po) happy, go IN, unconditional love, preparing you, and Abe


 

PICKS FOR TODAY:

 

# 1 – It’s hip(po) to be happy! :-)

No automatic alt text available.

 

# 2 – From Dr Sue Morter…..

Go IN to Go OUT

When we want to expand our territory, increase our circle of influence, expound upon our comfort zone; when we want to grow our business, better our relationships, catch a bigger wave out there, GO IN.

Go IN to go OUT.

When we deepen our relationships at our core, activate our truth, honor our heartfelt inner voice, we become One with Nature and we merge with the Infinite. (And what better way to expand than to have Infinity on your team?!) — Dr Sue Morter

 

 

# 3 – Yes!

 

 

# 4 – Something to reflect on….

Image may contain: text

 

# 5 – Oh god, I wrote something similar awhile back about wanting words like “strive” and “earn” removed from our way of thinking/speaking…..

We would like you to release the word “achieve” or “earn” from your vocabulary and from your understanding, altogether; and we would like you to replace those words with the word “allow”. You’re wanting to allow your Well-being, not achieve it. It’s not something that you need to earn. All you have to do is decide what it is you would like to experience, and then allow it in order to achieve it. It isn’t something you have to struggle for or try for. You are all worthy beings. You are deserving of this Well-being. — Abraham

Great Nature pics, Rumi x 2, love your body, 4 ways to be happier, and Abe


 

PICKS FOR TODAY:

 

# 1 – These are great….some funny, some sweet, some pretty amazing….

WINNER-Julian-Rad

https://www.comedywildlifephoto.com/gallery/2016_finalists.php

 

# 2 – You can never go wrong with Rumi…

Image may contain: 2 people, people standing, text and outdoor

 

# 3 – From Rob Brezsny’s newsletter….reminds me of a 5-day “challenge” I recently read about where you write a love letter to your body for 5 days and see what happens….

FREE YOUR BODY!

Free your body. Don’t ruminate and agonize about it. Do it simply and easily. LOVE YOUR BODY!

Be brave and forceful, gentle and graceful. Free your sublimely imperfect, riotously intelligent body. Allow it to be itself in all of its mysterious glory. Love your body exactly as it is.

Praise your body. Thank your body. Tell it you adore its uncanny majesty .. . you yearn to learn more of its secrets . . . you promise to treat it as your beloved ally.

Be in love with your body, no shame, no apology. Be in awe of your body’s unfathomable power to endlessly carry out the millions of chemical reactions that keep you alive and thriving.

How can you not be overwhelmed with reverence for your hungry,curious, resourceful, unpredictable body?

Study your body’s magic. Exult in the blessings it bestows on you. Celebrate and hone its fierce animal elegance.

 

# 4 – Another good one from Rumi….

# 5 – Here’s some of the latest at Self-help Health, including JP Sears skewering the American Heart Association, 4 ways to be happier (and healthier!), and a new exercise routine called nitric oxide dump. Huh?!

https://selfhelphealth.wordpress.com/2017/08/11/four-ways-to-be-happier-and-healthier/

 

# 6 – Ah, that last line is so important to remember…..

The Essence of My Every Desire Can Be Fulfilled… If your time-space reality has the wherewithal to inspire a desire within you, it is our absolute promise to you that your time-space reality has the ability to deliver, in full-manifested form, the reality of the desire it has inspired. Any and all desires can be fulfilled unless you are holding yourself out of alignment with your own desire. The feeling of competition or shortage, or limitation of resources, means you are out of alignment with your own desire. —Abraham

Mother Nature, soul, enlightened, have-its, and the Dalai Lama


 

PICKS FOR TODAY:

 

# 1 – Ah, yes, Mother Nature has a way of lightening my mood….

Image may contain: flower, text, outdoor and nature

 

# 2 – I love this, especially the last 3 sentences…..

Image may contain: text

 

# 3 – And humor always goes a long way in making the evolutionary process easier….:-)

Image may contain: 6 people

 

# 4 – From Dr. Sue Morter…..reminds me of what Abe is always saying….

Habits or Have-Its?

Which are you living from? Your habits or your “have-its?”

When we wish, dream or desire, we tend to separate ourselves from that which we dream of. When we create from the energy of “someday” or “down the road” we actually create the energy of lack, missing and void. WE create the lack without even knowing it. It’s how we were raised, it’s all we know – it’s just a HABIT. WE have what we have because of what we HAB!

Have something different, by HAVING IT ENERGETICALLY first. Create the vibration of what it would feel like to HAVE it, and you shall.

 

# 5 – And some wisdom and insight from the Dalai Lama to end on…..

At the end of the talk someone from the audience asked the Dalai Lama, “Why didn’t you fight back against the Chinese?” The Dalai Lama looked down, swung his feet just a bit, then looked back up at us and said with a gentle smile, “Well, war is obsolete, you know.” Then, after a few moments, his face grave, he said, “Of course the mind can rationalize fighting back… but the heart, the heart would never understand. Then you would be divided in yourself, the heart and the mind, and the war would be inside you.”

# 3 – Love this…

“Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because every second of the search is a second’s encounter with God and with eternity.” –Paulo Coehlo, The Alchemist

# 5 – The Chopra Center is offering a free on-line 5 Days To Expanded Awareness course…..

 

# 6 – And Abe…..

My Every Thought Is Attracting Its Vibrational Essence… Whether you are thinking about wanted things or unwanted things, you are still sending out a “request” to attract more things like the subject of your thought. And all things that happen to you – all people, things, experiences, situations that come to you – come in response to your Vibrational invitation.

Noticing how things are turning out for you is one very clear way of understanding which Vibrational requests you are emanating, because you always get the essence of what you are thinking about, whether you want it or not. –Abraham
