“Oh, where is the sea?”, the fishes cried, as they swam its crystal-clearness through.
“Remember that other people’s opinions about you are none of your business”.
Today it moved me out of the unnamed terror I woke up with. I felt like I was under psychic attack. When I finally regained a bit of mindfulness I realized I’d totally forgotten my usual morning routine of prayer, meditation and this site. After reading your sacred words I realised I was going to live. I’m not alone. Every day, no matter how it starts, can be turned around with gratitude. My heart rate has ALMOST returned to normal.
Observing people who consider their choices and are willing to take responsibility despite personal hardship.
Truth the reduction of suffering
When I identify, accept, and let go of old unneeded programming and limiting false beliefs I free up energy and find strength to deal with the constantly changing challenges of my existence.
Gratitude reminds me I am not in charge, Iife is constant change, and everything is exactly as its supposed to be in present moment. As like is attracted to like, focusing on gratitude brings awareness of more to be grateful for.
Thanks, Tom. Gratitude is the antidote for the poison of the daily mainstream news.
Everything slows down. My breathing deepens and I take in more oxygen. Colors brighten. My field of vision expands. Muscles relax. Posture improves. Pain devreases. I smile at the world and my scalp tingles.
I sense that on an energetic level my love, expressed directly or not, positively supports another individually and all of us collectiveky. Love is never wasted.
How I love the questions that help me concentrate on the positive!….. the “what would I change” questions… not so much.
The quotation at the end of Ed’s share says it all.
Like love, it expands and nurtures all who hear of it
I am grateful for life. And that’s enough time spent on treasuring my uniqueness. I look outward when I have a surplus of love to give. I’m very tired of the ” me, me” focus. Let me delight in the other.
A life of learning
Inner peace lays the foundation for appropriate response to each new “crisis” or opportunity”. Inner peace is nurtured by a daily practice of meditation, letting go, gratitude. My actions rarely need be dramatic.
Everything I experience changes me. Change is a form of learning. because it involves viewing the world from a new perspective.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
