Stillness is Not a Thing

Stillness is the only thing in this world that has no form.  But then, it is not really a thing, and it is not of this world.

As The Eagles say:
Learn to be Still

 

It is only in stillness that we learn who we truly are.  In this modern age of technology, it is extremely challenging to unplug, to shut down, to be just with oneself.  How many of us can do so?  Not many I would imagine.  If we want to remain emotionally balanced, it is imperative that we find a way every day to slip away from the world; to shut down, to contemplate our place.  It is important for our well being that we unplug.

 

Introverts, especially need this me time.  Which is not to say we all don’t need quiet time.  We do.  In the stillness, is sometimes where our greatest insights come from.  Why do you think creatives sometimes use the excuse of going for a walk to clear their heads?  It is because by getting away, by leaving their challenge, by going for a walk they declutter their minds, they are able to free up that noise and think about something else.  Thus, many times creatives find that elusive solution that was hiding in plain sight.  They remove themselves from the obstacle and the debris flows away, thus clearing the path for the solution to present itself.

 

I’ve used this practice myself many times.  Writing fiction many years ago presented challenges all their own and several times during the course of a week, I would arrive at a wall.  Instead of being discouraged by this, I’d use it as an opportunity to realize that I needed to break away, that I needed a respite.  I walked away from the wall.  I shut down.  I played some soft music and closed my eyes.  I blocked out all thought of said challenge.  I meditated.

 

Mediation has been a tool I’ve used for years.  Not simply in helping me find solutions to challenges, but also as a means of helping me cope with the daily grind that life presents.  Learning to be still can help in so many ways.

–Meditation can help you deal with the challenges that arise in your life because you can calm yourself in the face of fear.

–Meditation can help you with your sleep patterns.  If you meditate at night just before going to sleep, turning off all electronics, turning off all lights, and playing soft music, you will find yourself much more relaxed when you head to bed.

 

And speaking of your bedroom, the ONLY thing you should be doing in there is sleeping.

You should have NO television in your bedroom.
You should have no computers in your bedroom.

 

 

Your body and mind get used to a certain rhythm and having glowing screens in front of you all the time, it is next to impossible to shut out all that flickering light.  Why do you think when you close your eyes after staring at something bright, you continue to see that flickering?  Do you really think that flickering doesn’t hurt your chances to sleep at night?

 

Of course it does.  That’s why I find it so important to shut down all screens an hour before I go to bed.  Learning to meditate took me some time, but now I find it very easy to do so.  Remaining still, finding your center, meditating?  These are all extremely important traits to have.  Everyone should practice.

 

Stillness:
Find yours!

 

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

Higher Vibrational People

Seek out higher vibrational people, and avoid those who reflect more ego-oriented behavior patterns

 

Your Ultimate Calling
Wayne Dyer
Page 201

 

Knowing that according to Law of Attraction our thoughts create our reality, it then stands to reason that those we choose to surround ourselves with also influence our thoughts, thus influencing our reality.  If we are feeling low, if we are in a negative place, perhaps we need to look the people in our circle.  Are we letting the right people in?  If not, It may be time to weed our gardens.

 

Weed our gardens?

 

Image from:

Weeding

Yes.  Are there weeds of in our friendship gardens?  Are there people who choke our emotions, who keep us down?  Perhaps some of those weeds hide the fact they are indeed weeds by growing flowers, doing their best to stay in our lives.  What we must do is really get down in the dirt, examine each and every person in our garden.
Do they charm us?  
Do they lift us up?  
Do they bring laughter and joy?

 

Or:
Do they only appear to do so by hiding the fact that they are weeds?

 

We need to be strong enough to know we can eliminate the weeds and still move forward without the pretty weeds, the weeds that appear to be positive, but really still bring us down.

 

We are better than these people.  If it comes down to the fact that you have more weeds than flowers, it is better to eliminate the weeds.  As challenging as it may be to be without anyone in your life, does it really make sense to keep people around just because you’d be lonely without them?

Are these negative people truly your friends?
Do they want what is best for you or what is best for them?
Are they only happy, do they only reach out when you lift them up?

 

Only you can make the decision whether to keep or remove someone.  Eventually your emotional state will make the choice for you.  I’ve learned this lesson and I now have the BEST circle of friends I’ve EVER had.

 

As Wayne Dyer says:
Seek out higher vibrational people, and avoid those who reflect more ego-oriented behavior patterns.

 

It’s more important to have positive people in your life especially if you are just starting down this new path.  You don’t need someone constantly dragging you backward.  It’s why in EVERY recovery program available those who have been there tell you to drop your old friends because most likely many of them are still not in recovery.  They will only drag you back.  If you are truly interested in growth then it is time to weed your garden.  You’ll find the right people once you remove the negative people.

 

Be strong enough to move forward.

 

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

You Were Born With Wings

You were born with potential.  You were born with goodness and trust.  You were born with ideals and dreams.  You were born with greatness.  You were born with wings.  You were not meant for crawling. You have wings.  Learn to use them and fly.

 

Rumi

 

I don’t recall recall how I initially came across Rumi.  However, everything I’ve read as resonated deeply with me.  Rumi is a wonderful inspiration for those looking for positivity in their lives.  When we incarnate, we we are naturally love.  We are goodness and trust.  No one is born without those intentions.  So what happens to those who souls who grow up and lose those innate feelings of love?  Of trust?

 

Society happens.
Society burns those out of us.  We forget because those around us make us forget.  You know what, though?

 

Love is still there!
Trust is still there!
Our wings are still there!

Image from:

AngelWingsThey are only hiding.  Our task while incarnated is to remember that we are made of love.  We are positive energy.  Love is all around us.  Greatness is within us, hiding. Our wings are still there too.

 

If you want to find your wings,
If you want to find your love,
If you want to find your dreams,

 

The only thing you can do is look within.  And remember:
You won’t be able to give love.  You won’t be able to give dreams, if you can’t find them within yourself.

 

So how do you find something that you once owned but have misplaced?  Do you look in the same places over and over hoping that the next time you look there, the missing item will miraculously appear?  I know I’ve done that countless times as I’m sure many people have.

 

But when searching for an emotion such as love or greatness if you look in the same old places you may get burned. That’s why the ONLY place to find these lost emotions are within yourself.

Those wings?
That love?
That greatness?

 

They’ve taken up residence deep within your soul and the only way to recover them is to dig them out.  Tell yourself you are love.  Tell yourself greatness resides within you.  Even if you don’t believe it, eventually those words will become a mantra and eventually you can’t help but listen and when you start listening, listening will mold itself into belief.

 

Once belief takes hold you can fly with those beautiful angel wings that have sprouted once more.  That is simply the beginning of your new life.  Once you have your wings, once you have recovered that lost child, then the most challenging part of your new life begins:
You must show others how to discover their own greatness.

 

For greatness, love and wings grow exponentially when shared.  Are you up for the task?

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

Intimate Secrets

Forget the first kiss, the first sex, the first tears of misunderstanding, the first fight. Forget the first amazing gift that says they thought long and hard about what you love. This gift is physical proof they tried their best to get you something concrete, in- the-hand wonderful to show the intensity of their feelings for you.

Forget it. Forget it all.

The first great real intimacy between two people begins when secrets are told.

A new book from Jonathan Carroll

JonathanCarroll

ALWAYS warms my heart.  He is one of the few writers whose books I will purchase sight unseen.  The above passage from his latest should point very well to the reason why.  Every one of his books has standout passages such as the one above.

 

Secrets are indeed the way to someone’s heart.  When you tell a secret, one you never thought you’d reveal to anyone you’re opening yourself up in more than any other way.  As Mr Carroll so eloquently puts it:
A kiss?
The Physical act of sex?

 

These are nothing in comparison to laying bare your soul.  Trusting someone so implicitly as to tell them something no one else knows.  That’s where REAL intimacy is.  Trust comes first.  How can you begin to build a relationship if the foundation isn’t built on trust?  Trust is hard to build but extremely and painfully easy to shatter.

 

Telling your partner secrets is one way of building that intimacy.  You’ll know when it is right to open up.  If you’re fortunate enough to have someone in your life who feels secure to let you in, to share their innermost thoughts and fears, sometimes that relationship can be stronger than a physical one.

 

I know!  You’re looking at me now like I have three eyes, right?  Well you do of course know we DO all HAVE three eyes don’t you?  I guess that’s blown out of the water now!

 

Being intimate seems to have brought with it it’s own set of rules.  And unfortunately, most seem to believe it means becoming physical.  Intimacy is so much more, as again can be seen from Jonathan Carroll’s passage above.

 

Count your blessings if you have someone you can share your secrets with.
Count your blessings if someone feels at peace with you.  These people don’t come around often.

Hold onto them.
Tell them you love them.  Better yet, show them you love them.
Tell them your secrets and they will in turn learn to trust you.

 

And trust is the greatest gift one can give and receive.  Remember what I said above as well:
Trust is hard to build but extremely and painfully easy to shatter.

 

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.

 

Image from:

flashing-heart

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.

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.

Image from:

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.

Chris

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?

 

Image from:

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.

Will the NFL Step Up

Sometimes at Wisdom and Life, I take news that is relevant and use it as fodder, as grist for columns here.  Today’s column is taking that approach.  Even if you don’t follow the NFL, you can’t help but have heard about the challenges they are suffering from in the past few weeks.
Ray Rice
Greg Hardy
Adrian Peterson

 

And writing about The NFL is not without precedence here as I’ve even discussed The Baltimore Ravens at Wisdom and Life previously.

 

Image from:

NFLLogo

These two players find themselves out of a game that has given so many people a leg up, a way out.  There are so few who have the opportunity to be successful who grow up like many of the players in the NFL.  Unfortunately, these players and many like them don’t see the advantage.  Sometimes they can’t break old patterns.  Sometimes they continue to to stay in relationships that are toxic and because it is the only thing they’ve ever known it can be quite difficult to break away.

 

Ray Rice:
Being abusive to a spouse or a partner is reprehensible and it is one of the two things someone can do that does NOT get a second chance in my opinion, because if you did it once, you’ll do it again and the first time you are caught, is NEVER the first time.  I’ve heard from many who are still supporting Ray Rice (though that number is declining every day) say why did she stay?  There are many reasons:
–I can change him.
Stockholm Syndrome.
–COULD be as I said above:
It’s the only thing they know.  Maybe they grew up being abused and they can’t break the pattern.

 

These are FAR from excuses.  Simply reasons why some may not be able to leave.  At some point you have to make a decision if it is healthy to stay in a relationship that is unhealthy.

 

Greg Hardy:
What I don’t like about this is its knee jerk reaction.  All week long the Carolina Panthers maintained that Hardy would play even though he was convicted of domestic violence.  The ONLY reason The Panthers backpedaled is because of the events in the preceding weeks.  When are we as a society going to step up and say:
This is unacceptable behavior and we are not going to condone it?  We will not enable it?  We will not sweep it under the carpet?

 

Adrian Peterson
Peterson said it himself:
I discipline my child as I was disciplined.

 

That proves my ENTIRE point above that we find it difficult to break patterns.  If Adrian was disciplined by being struck “with a switch,” then he obviously sees nothing wrong with doing the same.  It’s the ONLY thing he’s ever known.  Here’s the ironic thing however:
His two year old son he never met was beaten to death.

 

You’d think knowing this, Peterson would be ever vigilant NOT to go down that same path.  Unfortunately it can be difficult to break patterns.  I’m in NO WAY excusing this behavior because there is NO excuse!

 

 

The NFL has the perfect opportunity to change its image now.  There should be zero tolerance for this kind of behavior.  As long as we have teams who value winning over character, this will continue to proliferate.  It’s WAY past the time to put an end to this.  The question now becomes:
Will the NFL step up?

 

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