Keep Stillness Inside You

In the midst of movement and chaos, keep stillness inside of you.


Deepak Chopra

 

I’ve written about Deepak Chopra at Wisdom and Life previously.  He’s one of my favorite enlightened people.  That’s why I continue returning to him.

 

Are you experiencing turmoil at this moment?
Are you experiencing a squall?  A tempest? A gale?
Are you experiencing an emotional storm?

Meditate

How do you react when something doesn’t go your way?  Do you become agitated?  Do you fight the storm with stress?  Do you fight it with fury?  What if you simply gave in and let the storm take you?  What if as Deepak suggests you remain still?  What if you kept stillness within you?  What do you think would happen?
Would you find peace?
Would your turmoil vanish?

 

I think it would.

 

Repeat it often if need be:
Letting go is not a sign of weakness.
Letting go is a sign of strength.

 

Fighting against ANYTHING, ALWAYS expels energy, ALWAYS creates stress.  As I’ve said here many times over, isn’t it better to roll with the punches, row your boat down the stream instead of fighting the current?  That’s what Deepak Chopra is telling us to do with this quote.

 

It takes a strong person to let go.  Letting go is not a sign of weakness. Letting go is a sign of strength.   We simply have to realize this.

 

If you have a challenging time keeping still in the midst of chaos, one thing you can do to help is meditating.  I find that I can become more peaceful now when something I expect doesn’t come to fruition, simply because I spend time meditating especially at night just before bed.  Meditating at night helps me get to sleep and sleep more soundly through the night.

 

Meditating also helps me remain calm in the midst of chaos as I can call up that peaceful state when something is not going as I planned it.  I’m not suggesting this will work for everyone, just as I’m not suggesting anything I write at Wisdom and Life will change your life.  I’m simply saying this works for me and it MAY work for you.

 

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

Dr Bernie Siegel

My friend, Pete Onofrio in Madison, Connecticut has an events barn at his home on Race Hill Road called The Buddha Barn.  I was fortunate yesterday to be able to hear Bernie Siegel.

It was the second or third time I’ve seen Dr. Siegel in person and each time, I come away with some new insight.  If you have an opportunity to see him, don’t hesitate.

 

Several things he said stand out:
If you hear common themes from people, if Buddha and Jesus discuss the same topics in different forms, then listen.  For Buddha, Jesus, God.  They are all one in the same:
This is one thread I’ve been sewing for years.

 

One story he told is:
When someone transitions they are given a lit candle.  A family member watched these souls carrying their candles and noticed one soul who had an extinguished candle, when the son asked why his father’s candle was unlit, his father said your tears extinguish it.
In other words, you have to let me go.

 

WWLD:
Having a bad day?  Don’t want to get out of bed?  Then think:

WWLD:
What Would Lassie do?

 

Live by your experiences not your beliefs
Don’t let your belief cloud your judgement.  Dr Siegel brought this up in a story he told about meeting an animal intuitive.  How many of us shudder when we hear something that is beyond our scope, beyond our worldview?  Dr Siegel mentioned this animal intuitive story because one of his cats was missing in his house.  He looked everywhere for his cat.  The cat simply would not show up.  Once he left, the cat cried out.  One of Bernie’s kids heard the cat and it came out from hiding.  The cat didn’t want to show itself to Dr Siegal because it KNEW Dr Siegel was not happy having to trudge through the house looking for him.

 

How do you live your life?  Don’t let worldview cloud your own judgement.  Be open to different experiences and fit these different experiences into your worldview, just like fitting puzzle pieces together in your puzzle of life.

 

One of the things I have a HUGE challenge with myself is the physical issues I have:
My scoliosis and the stoop I walk with.
My speech.

 

I continue to not like my appearance, especially when seeing photos of myself and the other thing I have a difficult time with is my speech pattern.  I think some of that stems from growing up.  People in my life would tell me:
Stand up straight.
Think before you speak.

 

As if I wasn’t thinking.
As if I wasn’t standing as straight as I could.

 

Something Dr Siegel said yesterday truly resonated with me:
If you want people to talk to you show your wound.  He gave this example:
Go to a grocery store with a bandage over your eye and watch how many people come up and talk to you.

 

I guess I should take that point to heart and forget about my so called issues, challenges, difficulties.  I don’t even consider my challenges until I see them.  Photos, and now with cell phones, videos of watching me walk leave me feeling distressed.  I DO understand that every challenge is a gift and that’s something Dr Siegel repeated again and again yesterday afternoon.  I just have to meld it into my worldview.

 

There is so much other information he discussed and that’s why I think Dr Siegel is such an important person to know.
Read his books

Blessings to you.

Yesterday Once More

Are you still close to your best friend from childhood?
Do you stay in touch?

 

Yesterday, was my best friend’s (from childhood) birthday.

Image from:
Wikipedia
BirthdayCake

We lost touch with each other shortly after high school.  We both went in different directions.  Even though we lived at opposite ends of Connecticut, we were able to maintain our solid friendship all through childhood.  We were so close that we told people we were brothers.  I still remember the day we became “brothers.”
August 17, 1973

 

I was at Joe’s Aunt and Uncle’s just down the street from my grandparents in Lisbon Connecticut on Graham Terrace, when I discovered that my paternal grandmother had transitioned.  When I told Joe what had happened he said:
We are all brothers in God’s eyes and I feel your pain as if it is was my own.

 

I was fortunate to have Joe in my life as he became my rock.  My childhood wasn’t easy and Joe became my confidant.  When we grew up we dreamt of buying a farm down the street from us on Blissville Road in Lisbon, Connecticut.  In fact we grabbed John Cougar Mellancamp’s song Little Pink Houses and changed the title:
Little Grey Farms.

 

The outbuildings on this particular farm were all grey.  When we heard the song we always sang it with OUR title.  Joe and I never dreamed we’d lose touch with each other when we grew up, but I imagine ALL friends feel the same. Sometimes we take the time we have with our friends for granted, thinking we will ALWAYS be friends.  Unfortunately, sometimes life gets in the way.  Friends move on.  Joe and I attempted to reconnect several years ago but time passed us by and we were two completely different people at the time than we were when we were friends.  The ONE good thing about our disconnection is that it was a natural event.  There was no conflict that ended our friendship.  We just grew apart.

 

Still kind of sad knowing how close we were as children.  But people come and go from our lives for specific reasons. I understand that now.  Joe came into my life when I needed him.  Once I grew beyond my need for him, he left my life. A door closed and a window opens ALL the time!  You simply have to know where that window opens.

 

Through that window crawled my friend, Jason in 1989.

 

October 16 always leaves me feeling very nostalgic and I can’t help but remember how many years Joe and I were friends.  I have a picture of us when we are less than two years old playing together in a playpen.  For almost twenty five years we were inseparable so you can certainly understand my nostalgia.  I’ve been blessed in my life to have had friends who mean the world to me and I feel grateful to report that my friend Jason and I are still close and he is the longest tenured friend I have.  I’ve had three friends in my life who have been like family and each one of them will always be my friend even if one of them has moved on.

 

October 16 will always be an important day in my life, a day of remembrance, a day of nostalgia.  It won’t EVER be just another day.  Joe will be important to me forever and he is the first friend I’ve EVER had and for that reason alone, Joe will always hold a special place in my heart.

 

Anyone else have a similar story?  I’d love to hear it in the comments.

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

Signs, The Divine and Spiritual Evolution

Have you ever thought that you wanted something so badly and you looked for signs that pointed in the direction of “the rightness,” of the choice but every time you turned around there were opposite signs pointing you in a different direction?

 

Image from:
Wikipedia
Caodaist_eye

Did you see these signs or did you choose to ignore them?  What do you suppose would happen if you chose to ignore them?  On a soul level we ALL know what feels right.  We ALL know when something is NOT supposed to happen and when we ignore the RIGHTNESS of something, the Divine will continue pushing you toward the right path.

 

Maybe it is a conversation you have with someone.

Maybe you overhear someone else and ONE word or a series of words get magnified and you ONLY hear THOSE words.  These are the things we MUST pay attention to.  It is the Divine directing us but unless we are aware, unless we are awake, unless our “spiritual blinders” are off we won’t understand, we won’t see, we won’t hear where Spirit is guiding us.

 

It’s important for our spiritual evolution to move forward.  And the only way we can develop beyond our current capacity is to listen our intuition, listen to our gut.  And when a choice is to be made, follow your intuition.  Your intuition is the direct pipeline to the divine.  If you receive a message in the form of an overheard conversation and the message appears to be telling you NOT to do something, then for heaven’s sake, heed the message.  For if you don’t and you stumble forward choosing to ignore THAT message then something stronger will come down the pike and knock you on your ass.

 

The first message you receive from the Divine can sometimes be VERY subtle, which is why it take practice to hear that message.  If you are indeed awake and you understand the messages that are filtering through the first time and you STILL choose to ignore them, then the NEXT time you hear from Spirit, the next message won’t be so subtle  I SINCERELY believe we get that next communication that is more brazen to wake us up, to shake the lethargy from our inner being.

 

There is no bad.
There is no negative.

 

Everything that happens in our lives, from blessings to challenges are simply the Divine’s attempt to move us forward, to help us grow, to help us evolve.  To move forward, however we have to start paying attention to the communications we receive.

 

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

If Light is in Your Heart

If light is in your heart, you will find your way home

Rumi

 

Scott Allen on Google+   posted the above quote by Rumi a few weeks ago.

 

What are we but light, energy?  If you’ve read anything about our souls, you’ll see that what we are is energy, is light.  One book I’ve discussed many times at Wisdom and Life is Journey of Souls.  In that book the author, Dr. Michael Newton details what happens to us when we transition.  What I took away from every book and everything I’ve seen and read is that when we transition we revert to our natural state:
Light

 

What do you think Rumi meant when he said this?  It’s always a challenge to interpret the meaning behind someone’s words.  So I will offer my own interpretation.  This is purely coming from my own life experience.  Our true home is NOT on the earthly plane but with the Divine.  We are only on the earthly plane temporarily.  Each incarnation we have here is transitory.  We come here to learn, to grow, to move closer to the Divine.

Why do we continue to reincarnate?  It’s as I said above:
We want to move closer to the Divine.  And the Divine is pure energy, pure light.

 

Once we achieve light in our heart, once we understand that we ARE light, our home will be waiting for us.  Unfortunately many of us don’t yet understand that we need to forgive, that we need to stop calling each other out, that we need to stop being negative.  We MUST stop hurting each other.  Until all of humanity understands this simple notion, we will continue returning over and over.

 

Love is what moves us forward.
Love is the key to understanding.

 

Anything else is an anchor around our souls, dragging us back to the earthly plane.  Lift the anchor.  Remove your spiritual blinders.  See the world for what it truly is:
A place filled with love.
A place filled with positive energy.
A place of light.

 

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

Stop Resisting

No one experiences freedom until they stop pushing against others. The only thing that binds you is the pushing against that which is unwanted. And so, if a religion could just be excited about what it is, or a person within a religion could just speak with appreciation about what it is, without justifying what it is by pushing against everything else, then each religion, in all of its difference, could be just exactly what you’re reaching for.

Abraham-Hicks

 

No one experiences freedom until they stop pushing PERIOD!  Pushing against others, pushing against a challenge, pushing against whatever, all takes resistance and force.  Letting go?  That can take effort if we’ve been programmed from day one that the only way to get what we want is by pushing for it.
Don'tPush

It becomes easy.
It becomes the way to do things.
It becomes second nature.

 

We have to learn a new way.  We have to learn to let go and let God.  Why push?  Why resist when whatever will happen, will happen  anyway?  Just let it happen.  I’m not suggesting to simply lie down and let others walk over us.  I’m not suggesting to let circumstances control our every move.  What I am saying is that when you reach a point where something isn’t going the way you planned it, relax, breath in and breath out and simply let life take its course, let go and let God take the wheel.

 

HE knows the course.
HE has the map.  You don’t.  Why struggle?  Why try to drive when you don’t know where you’re going?  When you can’t see the path?

 

Stop pushing.
Let go.

 

Appreciate where you are.
Appreciate that you got this far.  But know you didn’t get here alone.  Know there’s always a Divine hand guiding you. And be grateful for that hand.

 

Stop pushing.
Let go.

 

What happens when you hit a wall?
Do you simply sit down and give up?  No!  You find a way around the wall, correct?  So why should meeting resistance be any different?  You have to find a way around the resistance.  Sometimes the only thing you can do is let go.  Letting go is NOT giving up.  There is always someone who you can reach out to.
A friend?

Someone who is always there, in the dark of night.  Someone who will drop everything to be by your side in a heartbeat:
Family?

 

We should all be fortunate to have someone like that.  I’m fortunate to have both.  A BEST friend who would drop anything and race to my side if I needed it.  And family who would do the same.  It is so important to cultivate friends and family who would go through walls for you.  If you have no one in your life like that it would behoove you to find someone.

 

Stop pushing.
Let go.

 

Let go and Let God.  That’s one of the slogans from every twelve step program.  Let God take control.  For HE is the ONLY one EVER truly in control.  The sooner you realize this, the easier your life will flow.  Remember that slogan I’m so fond of:
Row your boat gently DOWN the stream.

 

For it’s only when we resist, it’s only when we fight, it’s only when we struggle.  It’s only when we go against the current that we get in trouble.

 

Stop pushing.
Let go.

 

Let the current, let the stream take us where we are meant to go.  Don’t resist.

 

Let go and Let God.

 

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

Be A Rainbow Gardener

Next time you encounter someone in pain, don’t just wince and pass by with a shrug.  Hurting people need a bit of color to brighten their dark places and they need to remember the promise that God is with them right where they are.  Where rainbows grow, angels sing and courage becomes contagious.  You can be a rainbow gardener by opening your heart even if you’re in pain yourself.  Let someone know that although you don’t have it all together, you find comfort and hope in the Lord.

 

 

God Always Has A Plan B
Page 72

 

It’s like I’ve said at Wisdom and Life previously:
Sometimes when we are hurting we can actually feel better by helping someone else.

Rainbow

Sometimes when we are hurting, if we reach out to another who is also in pain we forget our distress and if we forget our own pain it can help us move away from our challenges.  If we can be clear of our own distress even for a short time, if we can focus on someone else’s challenges, someone else’s problem, maybe we will find the solution to our own problem.  By focusing on someone else we take the attention off ourselves and put it on someone else.

 

Besides, are you REALLY someone who walks passed someone in pain and and ignores them?  Is that really how you want to be perceived?  I hope not.  That’s not how the Divine wants you to be.  That’s not how Jesus worked. Jesus reached out.  It’s why I sometimes find it challenging to see today’s Church ostracizing certain segments of society.  The Church should be a welcoming place.  The Church should be a rainbow gardener, painting society with brilliant colors.

 

Not bleakness, not hellfire and brimstone.

 

It’s why I find myself more aligned with Rob Bell and his book Love Wins.  After reading Love Wins, I realized how much Mr Bell and I have in common.  It’s where I finally understood that I feel most comfortable in the Universalist paradigm.  It doesn’t mean I don’t accept God into my life.  On the contrary, I have such a strong bond with God that I see him EVERYWHERE.  I carry on a conversation with him ALL the time.

 

I feel connected on so many levels to the Divine and because I have such a strong connection, I couldn’t fathom ignoring someone in pain.  It’s my inclination to reach out.  It’s in my DNA to help those who need it.

 

What about you?

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

Parting The Veil

Everything that you need or want in life will begin to arrive when you’re in-Spirit:
The right people will show up.  The financing will materialize, those around you will be attracted to your enthusiasm and commitment.  And you’ll be a source of inspiration to others.

Wayne Dyer
Your Ultimate Calling
Page 237

 

Everything in its own time.  What doesn’t happen today is NOT supposed to happen today.  Sometimes we don’t get what we want.  We get what we need.  The sooner we understand this, the more joyful will we be.  Unfortunately, it takes spiritual growth.  It takes emotional growth.  It takes awakening, enlightenment.  If you read the preceding link you may begin to understand where I am.  For myself, once I understood that everything happens for a reason and everything that happens is ALWAYS for the greatest good I stopped worrying.

 

Image from:
CJP Photos
Rock Light

I’ve seen this happen over and over.  As I’m fond of saying here at Wisdom and Life, these things happen to everyday to everyone, you simply have to be awakened to see them.  I’m fortunate to have become enlightened.  I’m fortunate that the Divine saw in me something that could be ignited.  I know why I have an overflowing faith.  It is because of the challenges I experienced as a child, both physical and emotional.  I was gifted with this faith because it was what I needed to survive my youth.

 

I’ve always felt God beside me.  I’ve always known the Divine had my back.  When something challenging happens to me, when I don’t get what I THINK I want,  I understand that it just means something better is coming down the pike, that no means not right now.  When I attempt to point this out to people who aren’t fully awakened yet I sometimes feel myself getting frustrated, I sometimes want to shake them awake.  But then I find my way back and realize that everyone must find their own way.  Everyone gets there in their own time.

 

Still, it can be frustrating when I see someone struggling, when I see someone unhappy and unable to see what is so clear to my eyes.  When these people can look back at past events and see in hindsight the blessing that came from what they initially saw as a challenge.  That’s when I truly want to shake them awake.
You see the blessing in that challenge.  Why can’t you see something good will come of this?

 

Aren’t we supposed to learn from the past?
Aren’t we supposed to be able to move on?
Isn’t that the point of each incarnation?

 

The ONLY thing I can do is keep showing those who don’t get it yet.

Keep living my life the ONLY way I know how:
Parting the veil behind the physical world and showing the spiritual world, the ethereal world and not worry about losing people from my life, because as I’ve seen written many times:
Those Who Mind Don’t Matter, and Those Who Matter Don’t Mind.

 

That’s yet another symptom of my new attitude.  I REALLY don’t feel any antipathy towards those who leave me behind anymore.  It’s like I say at Wisdom and Life:
Take me or leave me. I no longer worry what others think.

 

I’m just grateful to have reached this point in my life.  How many can say the same?

 

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

How Do You See Life?

I’m sure somewhere in our lives we have all met someone who has two faces:
One they present publicly.
and
One they present privately.

 

The face they present publicly is most likely happy, positive, upbeat.  They want to us to believe they are in fact happy people but unless you know them intimately you may never see their true nature, the face they cannot hide.

Image from:

TwoFaces

The question then becomes how do you help someone who:

A) Doesn’t want help.
B) Doesn’t know how to ask.
Or:
C) Doesn’t know they need help.

 

It’s not an easy solution.  In all recovery programs, the first step is acknowledging you have a problem.  That can be the biggest hurdle to clear. For some, they never reach that point.  And that’s a shame, because life truly is a gift and it shouldn’t be squandered.  Life shouldn’t be a misery.  Life should be a party and I feel bad for those who don’t see that.  One thing I have to remember however is this:

Some are content in ignorance.  
Some don’t want to do the heavy lifting it takes to change.
And some don’t know where to turn.

 

It’s the ones who don’t know where to turn who may benefit most.  For they may be searching and those are the people we (who have so to speak “seen the light”) should be reaching out to.  They are the ones we should be focusing on.

 

There are people who present an outward positive energy who aren’t truly positive in their private lives and these are the people who wander in a hopeless desert, never really seeing that oasis, never really understanding that if you simply pivot one way or the other you will make your way out of that hopelessness.

 

I’m eternally grateful that I found my way out.  Not everyone does.  I understood that I didn’t want to live a life where everything was bleak, where everything was grey.  There was no way I could live my life that way.  I see light everywhere.  I see the Divine everywhere.  For me, everything is Divinely connected.  Everything is a blessing.

 

And because I see life this way, I feel an obligation to show those who want to see what life can truly be like if you remove the negative energy and re-fill that space with the positive.  It can be a HUGE blessing.  It’s not easy, but if you truly want to feel blessed, if you truly want to feel the divine, it can be done.

 

You just have to want to do the work.
You just have to admit you have a negativity problem.
And you have to know where to turn.

 

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

Chris

Education, Right Brainers and Discovering Our Gifts

You are really individual beings, with very special talents, and it would be nice if teachers had the time, or parents had the awareness or skill, to see the children as the very individual, very special beings that they are. So that rather than trying to drum them into one category, they are, instead, appreciating the special insight that each child brings to the sea of diversity and contrast which is the stuff that creation comes from.

 

Abraham-Hicks

 

 

We all have our God given gifts.  It’s up to us to discover them and use them to our advantage.
Parents?
Teachers?

KnowledgePower

They MAY mean well.  But too many times they guide their children in the same way they were guided.  By pigeonholing them into careers that will earn them the MOST money, disregarding the fact that many people who are financially secure are emotionally bereft.

 

 

 

 

 

Which would you honestly rather be?
Financially successful?
Or
Emotionally successful?

 

What if you could be both?  You can be!  You simply have to discover the gift or gifts that were given to you when you incarnated.  Discover a way to create a career around that gift.  Whether it be songwriting.

Whether it be an artist.
Whether an actor.

 

Whatever you feel impassioned about
Whatever brings you joy
However you get lost in the Flow

 

That’s your gift.

 

Abraham Hicks is correct:
We REALLY are individual beings, with very special talents.
and we can’t let anyone dissuade us.
We can’t let anyone tell us different.

 

Do you know why our parents and our educators do what they do?
Do you know why they steer us in the financially driven direction?
One reason is as I said above, because that is how they were taught.  But there is another implication here too.

Fear.  
That’s right the other reason is fear driven.  All of our teachers from our youth, our parents as well as our school administrators are fearful that we will learn that we ARE individuals, that we are not automatons, that we all don’t fit in a square box.

 

Some of us draw outside the lines and education today is all about conformity.  There is no room for the individual to shine.  Some people learn differently.  I should know, because I went through this myself.  I’m a visual learner. Always have been.  I’m a right brainer.  Always have been.  I don’t know where this fits on that spectrum but when I attended middle school and high school and was administered tests it became quite apparent that taking multiple choice exams was the wrong way to judge what I learned.  Give me an essay exam or an oral exam and I excelled.  This was proven several times when I failed miserably with the multiple choice tests.

 

It was finally discovered by a teacher who took an active interest in my growth.  In the sixth grade he pulled me aside and asked if I wanted to take the exam over, but this time he would give me an oral exam.  He realized that I actively participated in classroom discussion and understood that I had more to offer.  He was right.  After class that afternoon he and I sat in his classroom and he tested me orally.  He was shocked at how well I knew the material.  He said he knew I understood what he was teaching.  He just needed me to know he knew.  From that time, I was given essay exams and my grades shot up in that class.

 

So see?  We are ALL individuals and if it wasn’t for that one teacher in middle school who had taken an active interest in one of his students I very well may have floundered in his class as well.  I am grateful to him and told him so once the year was out.

 

Learning differently
Thinking differently has actually helped me later in life.  Being right brained is a benefit in the career I chose. Writing and being in the literary field.  Right Brainers learn visually which is what that sixth grade teacher realized immediately after seeing my results on that multiple choice exam.

 

It’s unfortunate that most educators today don’t take the time to understand the individual.  For if they did, I imagine we’d see more students succeed.  I’m blessed that one teacher saw that I learned differently, that I was truly right brained.

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.
