MAKE BETTER

 

“Those who don’t want to change, let them sleep”. - Rumi 

They will change when they are ready (or maybe even forced to).  Acceptance is tough.  We often want to help people change for the better, of so we think.  But maybe they Don’t want to change.  

Let them be.  We have our own lives to live and make better.

 

THAT IS ALL

 

They say that a satisfied life is better than a successful life, because our success is measured by others, while our satisfaction is measured by our own soul, mind, and heart.

As long as we are satisfied heart, mind, soul — that is ALL.

 

ALWAYS PROMOTING MEDITATION

 

 

TIME IS CERTAINLY NON-REFUNDABLE

 

We often don’t think about time as being “non-refundable”.  But maybe if we start seeing it in this way, we can be PRESENT more.  We can find Gratitude in all we do, and all we have.  

Gratitude in the present moment, instead of living in the past and in the future.

Time IS certainly non-refundable.

 

 

SMILE EVEN WHEN YOU'RE NOT FEELING LIKE IT

 

Smile.  Even when you're not feeling like it.  There's always something to smile about.

 

REVIVE WHATEVER PEACE AND LOVE HAS DIED IN ME

 

This is a prayer I read today:

LORD

Enlighten what’s dark in me

Strengthen what’s weak in me

Mend what’s broken in me

Bind what’s bruised in me

Heal what’s sick in me

And lastly, Revive whatever peace and love has died in me.  

Amen

 

 

SOMEWHERE OVER RAINBOW

 

I’m blessed with a rainbow every day.  In my bed room, I have a hexagonal column crystal table lamp.  It blesses me with some kind of a rainbow every day.

I must admit that I don’t always get the chance to notice it.  But when I do, it truly brightens me.  Like the song says: 

“Somewhere over the Rainbow

Skies are Blue.

And the Dreams that you Dare to Dream

Really do Come True.”

 

 

MEDITATION CREATES MIRACLES

 

Meditation creates miracles.  

When we de-clutter the mind, we begin to see the magic, the miracles.

When we meditate (present in the moment) we begin to RECOGNIZE these same Miracles.  We begin to see wonderful things happen.

Always KNOW that something wonderful is about to happen.  Something wonderful IS already happening.  RIGHT NOW.

 

LOVE MY CRUISE CONTROL

 

I love my Cruise Control!  I started using it, all the time, years ago, After I received yet another speeding ticket.  But the other day, I picked up a new leased car, and it didn’t take me long to realize that it has no cruise control.  I didn’t think they made cars without cruise control anymore.

I wasn’t sure I would be able to live without it for Years to come (at least 2 years).  I have not gotten a speeding ticket since I started using that feature.  I felt handicapped.  I also felt jipped by my car salesman.    

But after a day, I was surprised at how differently I began to see things, without even trying…  Maybe I DON’T need it Anymore.  Maybe I would be Better off without it.  Maybe this is what I need right now.  I need to be more present anyway.  This will help me be more present on the road.  Be present in my life.

I’m sure I’m different now than I was 12 years ago.  I’m sure I’m even different now than just 2 years ago.  

Meditation creates miracles.

I accept the challenge.  I accept the Change.  I accept a new Life.  I accept a new me.

 

WATCH YOUR MIND

 

Are you practicing being PRESENT in the moment?  

I think it’s funny how we Need to Practice this.  

Shouldn’t it be innate?  Aren’t we Made to be in the moment all the time?

What’s blocking us from experiencing THIS moment?  From being mindful.  From being peaceful.  Blissful.  Love-filled.  

Is it worth it?

Watch your MIND.  Because your mind is NOT you.  It is just your mind.  Just like your Emotions are Not you.  Just like you are not just your teeth, or your eyes.  You are more than that.  WE are more than that.  

We are PEACE.  We are LOVE.  We are BLISS.
