A DAY OF GRACE


 

PICK FOR TODAY:

This is so good it deserves a post of it’s own, plus it’s  great for starting off a new year with. What would happen if we all decided to live a day (or year!) in Grace?!

 

LIVING A DAY IN GRACE by Madisyn Taylor

Grace exists in all situations and in every moment, yet all too often we may overlook its presence.

Grace is always with us. It flows like a river through our lives, artfully reminding us that there is magic and power beyond what our eyes can see. At times we catch its subtle beauty, like during chance meetings, near misses, and insights that seem to come from nowhere. Other times we experience grace in all its powerful surety such as when a job or relationship comes to an end. Though we may forget that this is grace at work too, it is indeed influencing our lives, helping us to move forward and take the next step. Grace exists in all situations, in every moment, yet all too often we may overlook its presence.

Imagine how it would feel to live an entire day in grace, to fully appreciate that your day is unfolding in absolute perfection. Whereas usually you might miss the magic in ordinary events and interactions, on this day you would recognize them all as little miracles. Perhaps you could begin with your first deep breaths in the morning, becoming aware that there is an abundant supply of air for you to breathe. Your lungs know just how to carry oxygen to your blood, and your blood knows where to carry it from there.

This is grace at work. You might appreciate the brilliant sunshine, the warm summertime rain, or the possibilities for learning that greet you at every turn. You might notice the ease with which you do your job or laugh with a close friend. These things are also grace. Even laying your head down at the end of this day and resting in the stillness of night is grace.

With each opportunity you give yourself to enjoy this current of benevolence, you may discover a deeper peace. Your faith may strengthen and your heart may open. You might begin to wonder if struggle is really all that necessary after all. By living this one day in grace, you might open the door to many more.

The Courage to relax and play….


 

PICK FOR TODAY:

I LOVE this artwork by Michael Parkes and quote by Brene Brown. Such a good piece of wisdom to keep in mind during this often hectic holiday season. Rest and play is when we recharge and become re-inspired (filled with Spirit) so we can truly be a light/the Light unto others. You win, those around you win, and so does the whole world….

 

It takes courage to rest and play in a world where exhaustion is a status symbol. ~ Brene Brown

This Abe quote has always been one of my faves and goes nicely with the one above….

Reduce your workload by 30% and increase your fun load by 30% and you will increase your revenues by 100%. And you will increase your productivity by 10,000%. (If there could be such a percentage.) More fun, less struggle — more results on all fronts. ~ Abraham

 

Enjoy your holiday/holy days season!

PICKS FOR TODAY:

 

#1 – This is such a great idea. It’s something I picked up from Rob Brezsny’s newsletter, which is usually full of insightful, inspirational stuff. Try this for the next day or two and see what happens. It really DOES make a difference! Seems like a great process to start this Thanksgiving week….

THE WORLD DESIRES YOU

Jane Brunette, aka Flamingseed, suggests this game: Instead of being the one who does the desiring, imagine instead that everything desires you.

Your morning coffee really wants you to taste it.

The trees are yearning for you to notice the bright green of their leaves.

The breeze wants you to enjoy it’s soft touch on your cheek.

Even the ground under your shoes is waiting for you to notice the lively sensation it creates as you walk._

Suddenly, the world lights up — and so do you. When we feel wanted, it’s natural to feel enlivened in response. Our desire takes its rightful place as the fire of presence and enjoyment of what is, instead of the burning need to get what’s not here.

Doing this practice, we will derive satisfaction from a whole variety of ordinary things that we normally overlook, since our attention won’t be occupied with waiting for a specific object to please us. Now, there is no need to wait, because everything we encounter has satisfaction built into it. With desire spread out all over the world, its enlivening quality is no longer confined to one object that we may or may not get.

This little game can trick you into mindful presence, even as it helps wear down your usual relationship to desire. It is a simple, playful way to meditate as you go about your daily life. Try it for short little bursts — and rather than thinking of it as a task, let the enjoyment that comes be the fuel that naturally makes you want to do it more and more.

# 5 – YES!

count blessings

 

# 6 – And a great one from Abe….

Most rarely align with their true power, because it seems illogical to them that there is power in relaxation, in letting go, or in love or joy or bliss. Most people do not understand that their true power lies in releasing resistance—which is the only obstacle to their true power.

Most people do not expect their path to great abundance to be one of ease and of joy. They have been taught that struggle and hardship and sacrifice are requirements that must be met before the reward of great abundance can be realized. Most do not understand that the very struggle they deliberately involve themselves in, in their quest for success and advantage, actually works against them.

There are so many things that you have been taught to believe that are counter to the powerful Laws of the Universe that it is difficult for you to think your way out. And that is the reason that we present this path of much less resistance.

We want you to breathe rather than try, to relax rather than offer effort, to smile rather than struggle, to be rather than do. For your true power is experienced only from inside the Vortex.  — Abraham

 

Have an inspired and inspiring Thanksgiving week!

Frost flower, new steps, Path to Empowerment, born to run, change the world, and Abe


 

PICKS FOR TODAY:

 

# 1 – The wonders of Mother Nature!

Frost Flower on a mushroom: Frost Flowers are as beautiful as they are rare. A frost flower is created on autumn or early winter mornings when ice in extremely thin layers is pushed out from the stems of plants or occasionally wood. This extrusion creates wonderful patterns which curl and fold into gorgeous frozen petioles giving this phenomenon both its name and its appearance. (Photo: John Richter)

 

# 2 – Wise words and I love the idea of dancing our way to change….

# 3 – Join Deepak Chopra for this free 21-day The Path to Empowerment meditation series….

Next time you feel lost or powerless, try shifting your perspective from EGO to SPIRIT to access your true source of unwavering inner strength.

Living from our isolated ego self, we view power as a limited resource that comes and goes – one we must struggle to obtain and defend with force, intimidation, and dominance. When we live from our spirit, we understand that true power comes from a deep place within that supports and connects us all.

#4 – My Note From the Universe recently….

Some of what frustrates us here the most, Zirah, are your regrets over the past, insecurities over downtime, and self-doubts over decisions to be made.
 
Please, the past was only a warm-up, your downtime allows us to set a new stage, and it’s you we proudly call “the boss.”
 
Love yourself, Zirah, we do.
 
Born to run,
The Universe

# 6 – And some wisdom from Abraham to end on….

If you decide to make someone the enemy and you’re pushing very hard against them, you don’t affect them at all, but you disconnect yourself from the Stream. If someone cheats you, they cannot diminish your experience. They only diminish their experience. You cannot be diminished by someone cheating you unless you get all upset about being cheated and push against them and use that as your excuse to disconnect from the Stream. — Abraham

#6 – And some Abe to end on. I have noticed that asking this all-important question really DOES make a difference!

“As you look for a better-feeling way to approach whatever you are giving your attention to; as you continue to ask yourself from your ever-changing vantage point, “What is it that I do want?”… Eventually you will be standing in a very pleasing place—for you cannot continually ask yourself what it is that you do want without your point of attraction beginning to pivot in that direction. The process will be gradual, but your continued application of the process will yield wonderful results in only a few days.” — Abraham

HOW TO HAVE A SPIRITUAL EXPERIENCE

The teacher Rudolf Steiner had a devotee who complained that after years of meditating and studying sacred texts he had not yet had a spiritual experience.

Steiner asked him if he’d noticed the face of the conductor on 
the train on which they were riding. The man said no. Steiner 
replied, “Then you just missed a spiritual experience.”

My interpretation: You can expedite and intensify your 
education about spiritual matters by noticing the beauty and 
holiness in the most mundane things.

Also, this: Every event that happens is an opportunity to 
meditate.

 

# 7 – And my Note from the Universe the other day….

(burning bush photo by Ron Armstrong)

Performing miracles, Zirah, isn’t a matter of doing the impossible, it’s a matter of redefining the possible.

Tallyho, 
The Universe

There is no reality but Love, there is only Love, in all that is, we are that.

We cannot focus upon the weaknesses of one another and evoke strengths. You cannot focus upon the things that you think they are doing wrong, and evoke things that will make you feel better. You’ve got to beat the drum that makes you feel good when you beat it. And when you do, you’ll be a strong signal of influence that will help them to reconnect with who they are. — Abraham

Thinking With the Heart


PICK FOR TODAY:

This article is so good it deserves a post of its own, so it’s the one and only pick for today….

Tap Into the Innate Intelligence of the Heart…..

For far too long, but particularly in the modern Western world, we have thought of the heart as simply a pumping mechanism responsible for bringing blood to our organs.

The heart’s physical importance is not to be underestimated, it supports life, sending the blood of life to the tree limbs of our vascular system–but this is an overly simplistic view of what the heart is capable of.

Gregg Braden’s latest research elaborates on the ancient technique of using the heart as an intelligent organ.

The heart’s intelligence has been ignored for far too long. What we’ve learned about the heart’s wisdom, however, in the past several years through the Heart Math Institute and through the research of psychologists, neurobiologists, and resurfaced wisdom teachings from our ancient past, should inspire everyone to look at the heart in a completely new way.

For those who are not used to using their innate intelligence–that is their intuition—tuning into the heart for answers to the most profound and difficult questions they could possibly drum up might seem ridiculous. Why ask the heart whether to stay in a relationship that is challenging, or even if you should go through with a medical procedure?

It might seem ignorant or even haphazard to ask the heart questions like these, but it has wisdom that the intellect cannot match. Here’s why:

The heart does not send information through an egoic filter.

The heart knows your past, your present, and your future. Its intelligence does not care about your egoic constructs. The heart simply speaks from a completely neutral place.

Follow your heart

What lessons will you learn if you follow your heart?

You can think of it like a close friend who has your best interest at heart, and who does not care about making themselves look good in your eyes.

Hridaya

There is an ancient term that does not have a direct English translation that describes this intelligence of the heart. Hridaya, is the energy which is contained within the heart chakra. This is not just the physical heart, but the spiritual heart. It contains the intelligence of God or the transcendental mind.

The word comes from the Sanskrit language, and the closest meaning to English would be something like this:

Hrid = center

Ayam = this

Thus, the spiritual heart always brings you to your center. It will not veer away from your highest self, always taking in a 360-degree (and beyond) view of any situation you could possibly face.

The yogi Bhagavan wrote once to explain this spiritual heart in more detail:

Just as there is a cosmic center from which the whole universe arises and has its being and functions with the power or the directing energy emanating therefrom, so also is there a center within the frame of the physical body wherein we have our being. This center in the human body is in no way different from the cosmic center. It is this center in us that is called the Hridaya, the seat of Pure Consciousness, realized as Existence, Knowledge and Bliss. This is really what we call the seat of God in us.

Conversely, the mind-brain thinks of our past experiences, our past erroneous beliefs assigned to those experiences, and takes all sorts of twists and turns through a conceptual landscape that we’ve created to give us a ‘right’ answer to life’s deep questions.

Mind or heart

The mind-brain creates false perceptions where the heart is true.

A Zen Buddhist can also describe what happens when we think with the head (brain) instead of the heart.

We place a fog–a type of perceptual overlay on top of a situation and then add an emotional investment. We call this ‘real,’ but this couldn’t be further from the truth.

Yet, we think we have to obtain a siddhi (great accomplishment or miracle) in order to obtain supernormal wisdom or intelligence. So, we go on trusting the false perceptions of the mind-brain.

The Neurobiology of the Heart

Moreover, if we were to look at the simple neurobiology of the heart–there are many more fibers leading from the heart to the brain than from the brain to the heart. This means–as Gregg Braden recently pointed out in a Gaia talk–that there is much more communication being sent to the brain then being received from it.

As the HeartMath Institute explains, the heart also begins beating in the unborn fetus before the brain has even been formed, a process scientists call autorhythmic.

We humans also form an emotional brain long before a rational one, and the heart has its own independent complex nervous system known as ‘the brain in the heart.’

The heart can also create a level of coherence in the body just through its rhythm, which regulates all its systems, and corrects even diseased cells.

And finally, the electromagnetic field of the heart is about 60 times greater in amplitude than the brain, and permeates every cell in the body. The magnetic component is approximately 5,000 times stronger than the brain’s magnetic field and can be detected several feet away from the body with sensitive magnetometers.

The heart is full of wisdom

Tapping into the heart’s intelligence is tapping into your innate wisdom.

Thinking with the Heart’s Wisdom

Braden suggests these tips to help you tap into your heart’s massive wisdom:

  1. Focus on the heart (and heart chakra). This sends a signal to the heart that you seek its intelligence.
  2. Slow your breathing. This sends another signal to your body that you seek higher intelligence, and not that of the normally stressed, and freaked out ego. Deep breathing calms the nervous system and quiets the brain.
  3. Conjure a sense of gratitude, compassion, or love. These are the feelings which trigger an activation of the heart’s energy.
  4. Ask your heart a question. The question should be brief and to the point.
  5. Everyone will experience the heart’s intelligence a bit differently. You may feel butterflies in your gut, a warm sensation growing around your body, or tingling in your fingertips. You may not feel any bodily sensations but have a clear, short answer that comes through your mind. Know that it likely won’t need a long-drawn-out story to ‘justify’ its wisdom. The heart speaks directly and clearly. If it isn’t, try this process again to let your body know that you seek the intelligence of the heart and not the ego.
  6. Practice makes perfect. The more often you do this, the easier it will be to tap into the seat of pure consciousness–the hridaya.

Rumi, Venus rotation, Nature, rigged, and Abe


 

PICKS FOR TODAY:

 

# 1 –  A sweet pic and a little Rumi to go with it…..

The only lasting beauty is the beauty of the heart. – Rumi

 

# 2 – In a previous post I shared a picture with the sacred geometry formed by tracking the 8 yr transit/rotation cycle of Venus. Great to see this visual of the process, plus note the beauty and intricacy of the geometry created by other planets as well….

 

# 3 – Lovely image and text…..

“When we speak of Nature [we should not] forget that we are ourselves a part of Nature. We ought to view ourselves with the same curiosity and openness with which we study a tree, the sky or a thought, because we too are linked to the entire Universe.” ~Henri Matisse

 

# 4 – YES!

 

# 5 – Good stimulation. I especially like that last paragraph, which I don’t think has been really mentioned in other quotes along this same line……

Your emotion, your indicator of vibration, is indicating the ratio between your currently focused desire and any other belief or thought that you hold about same. When you feel negative emotion, anger about something, or fear… the name of the emotion does not matter, it always means that there is a desire within you that, in this moment, you are contradicting with some other thought. Your emotions are always about your relationship with your own desire, and nothing else.

And it’s time for you to just begin relaxing about it, and not make it a personal issue of your own valor, or your own value, or your own integrity. In other words, it’s just, how many times have I thought this thought? — Abraham
