ACCEPTING CHANGE - Inspiration and Chai

will's picture

As a cool winter breeze blows softly, the first warmth of the winter sun for the day warms me again. Birds sing from trees near and far. Frogs sing in the sunshine as the creek sparkles in the morning sun. From a nearby farm, a rooster crows. No human sounds can be heard at all. It is bliss.

Although change is a part of life, I say thanks for small consistencies too. The songs of the birds may change. Some birds move on, some stay all year around. The frogs too change their song, as the seasons change and different frogs share their joy through voice. But in general, the beauty of this place remains. The changes themselves actually add to the consistency of beauty.

The Nature of True Reality - Knowing Whispers

will's picture

The imagination distorts reality. The mind believes all it imagines.

Reality is the pure experience of being within consciousness, it is the fullness of the now as it reveals itself as truth.

The mind cannot grasp reality. The fullness of truth must be felt within us as conscious knowing.

Truth will never be experienced in the mind. It cannot be believed into reality. It lies somewhere near the end of the minds journey and on the doorstep of the ever present now. Truth is found in accepting ourselves totally without question or judgment. It is knowing the knower as the known.

The art of acceptance - Positive Thoughts

will's picture

To move forward in life you must first accept the reality of what it is. To wish that things were different, or to pretend that they are, gets you nowhere. Today you have all the possibilities in front of you to move in the direction of your dreams.

Radical Acceptance says that life works better when you accept people for who they are, without judgment.  Once you have done that you can then act accordingly. What does that mean?

Attack thoughts towards others are attack thoughts towards ourselves. - Positive Thoughts

will's picture

''Attack is an easier response than forgiveness, and that is why we are so tempted to give into it.  Throughout our lives we have seen more anger than examples of true forgiveness.  Forgiveness does not mean that we suppress anger; forgiveness means that we have asked for a miracle:  the ability to see through mistakes that someone has made to the truth that lies in all of our hearts. . . . Forgiveness is not always easy.  At times, it feels more painful than the wound we suffered, to forgive the one that inflicted it. And yet, there is no peace without forgiveness.  Attack thoughts towards others are attack thoughts towards ourselves.  The first step in forgiveness is the willingness to forgive.'' Marianne Williamson

WE ARE DIAMONDS IN THE MUD! - Brian Schulz

will's picture

DEAR FRIENDS- A friend of mine was in deep pain today after recognizing that she has a recurring problem with co-dependency in her romantic relationships. While she knew that this awareness is the first step toward healing the pattern, she felt anguished and ashamed to be "such a flawed human being". She cried about how admitting the truth of her problem made her unable to see her own beauty and rightness. Her "Eyes of Love" toward herself had gone blind and she felt utterly lost.

I told her what I am about to tell you. Every single one of us is struggling with attitudes and behaviors that are self-defeating. Some of our demons have diagnoses and labels attached to them such as co-dependency or alcoholism. Others are not so clearly defined but still mire us in unhappiness. Please remember that we ALL have our problems. Did you know that John Lennon and Mahatma Gahndi used to beat their wives? True story. But the beauty and goodness in them- in their core selves- is still obvious. Their dysfunctional behavior- like yours, like mine, like everyone's- was simply the result of pain that hadn't been healed yet.

Be as Lilies of the Field. . . - Duane Townsend

Picture "Why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow. They don’t toil, neither do they spin." ~ Jesus of Nazareth

In today's venacular Jesus is saying - " Slow down and let the game come to you". Lillies are rooted in the fertile earth, sustained and fed by sunlight, comforted by rain. Lillies do not go out and seek their sustenance. Everything they need is right there in their midst. They don't chase, reach or grasp. They feel their source of energy and are drawn towards it. Their roots sink into the soil and they grow towards the sun. There seems to be little or no effort, they're simply being lillies. In today's world of action plans, master schemes, five year plans and all sorts of strategizing for sustenance, success and in turn happiness, let us consider the lillies of the field.

What is Real Beyond What is ‘Real’

Isis Ra's picture

“Wake from reality, wake from your dream…”

Reality. It certainly is a subjective, seemingly flexible and very elusive element of human existence.

With all the structures, formats, programs, conditions, laws, rules and boundaries our society aggressively imposes to implement, arrest (pun intended) and almost religiously uphold and proliferate “order,” it is amazing to me how we have everything but. In an (n)everchanging and, most would acknowledge if they were being honest, declining world, any rational and logical person would identify that nothing is rarely what it seems. The more “real” we are with our observations, the more we are able to see ”reality” for what it really is, an elaborate hoax, an illusion, a grand distraction, perhaps one of the greatest lies ever manufactured by human conception.

While You Are Waiting…. - The Creator Writings

Your Earth-plane existence and your happiness is not something you can put on hold. So many of you move through your life thinking, “Once the right person/money/the perfect job arrives, I will be happy.” or “If I drive the right car/live in the right house/have the right friends, life will be perfect.” While you are waiting for these things to appear, so many enriching opportunities are moving past you at an alarming rate! 

In the infinite perspective, all those things you THINK will make you happy are just infinitesimal specks on your timeline. Rather than waiting, hoping or wishing………..go out and DO! Your time here is short; embrace all it has to offer you! ~ Creator
