Finding Our Edge. . . Finding My Edge

 Many times people run away from feelings or emotions that are confronting. Fearing judgement from others. Fearing judgement toward one’s self. In the developed world, we are conditioned to blindly shuffle from one indoor task to another without taking time to lift our heads and make eye contact or physical connection; without putting down our forks in between chews, without questioning why we must have Monday office meetings or obey silly laws or eat the food given to us. We are taught to stop crying, stop feeling, and suppress our emotions that help us to understand the truth within ourselves. We keep minds and bodies busy to avoid the awkward silences that may challenge us to be alone with ourselves. That is confronting. Silence. Cause then we would have to perhaps face our own demons that hold us back from growth, authenticity, truth and imperfection

Highest Aims

I continue to learn about what exactly my “purpose”, “mission”, or “goal” is in this lifetime. The more I learn, the more it is clear to me that this all mighty purpose of my “self” is more and more fundamental and simple than I can ever expect or plan for it to be. This question is enigmatic and has crossed my mind throughout my adolescence, and young adult years, as I was conditioned to focus on making decisions that would bring me the biggest return on investment and provide the best “karmic” debt payment. As I work on exploring the complexities of this universe, the precepts, enemies of growth, types of doubt, axioms of universal truths, ways to become liberated and ideologies on how to live, I realize that in every moment in time, really, none of that matters. (Kind of like when I realized getting the “A” in college and all those years in school really didn’t matter. It was, instead, the joy I would receive from learning, growing, expanding and creating as a person that would yield the biggest reward and lessons in a scholar’s life.) reikiIt is a guttural feeling that, just like an old-fashion camera takes a snap shot of a specific moment, the gift or presence is truly what we (and I) should aim to submerge in. The constant feeling of bliss in every present moment; that is my current highest aim. Presence without the feeling of lack, but abundance. Presence without craving, attachments, agitation, and avoidance, but of equanimity and Upekkha (max potential and shape of the mind and body). It sounds so delicious, I can taste it. The best part of this specific aim, is that we can all have it. . . And it is free. It is like closing our eyes, tuning into our easy, rhythmic breath, and simply being. Just like heaven.

Raising Your Deserving Power

You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe deserve your love and affection.

Being Kind to Ourselves. Permission and Love

I have an overwhelming feeling of gratitude. Everyday. It oozes out of my heart, into my blood stream, my arms and legs, out the top of my head and shoots down from my feet, deep into the ground of which I find myself always running on. I am even more grateful for the people around me that help serve others, that are raising families, that are working to keep our society flowing, that offer enlightening concepts, inventors, scientists, children and their energy, as well as their sweet and bright outlooks on life, talents on a streaming media platform to brighten up a routine day. I am grateful for my family, my children, the warm sunshine and my ability to wake up day after day and feel this way (though obstacles sometimes challenge my perception of my knowing gratitude). Actually, even though I do feel this much gratitude, I do still have to constantly face that critic in my head, day by day, and talk to her. I have to tell her that everything in our lives is put here to teach us something and we can use the tools around us to learn from it when the time is vibrationally right. It is a skill to kindly talk to that anxious and sometimes pessimistic internal self critic. Sometimes I am too tired to talk. Or listen.

8 Reasons Why Practicing Gratitude is so Important

“Every day, think as you wake up, today I am fortunate to be alive, I have a precious human life, I am not going to waste it.

Happier Earth-Anti-Aging, Better Mind and Heart Heath: Just Be Kind

Not just on Earth day or Thanksgiving or Christmas, but everyday. We should practice being kind and selfless everyday. Most every person operates on a level where they are independent; looking out for their own survival needs and sub-consciously creates a micro-bubble awareness for themselves, and the close knit of family/friends in their immediate circle. It takes much more effort to act and give of ones’ time, energy, belongings and intention to others for compassionate, benevolent, and simply a selfless notion of being kind and altruistic. Maybe this settle gesture makes us feel better about ourselves, helps us to connect with others on a positive vibrating level and gives us an empathetic point of view? More than those positive feelings and “pats on the back,” however, science has proven that acts of kindness and selflessness toward others and the environment around us equate to being happier, living longer, and better mental and physical overall health.

Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way around or through it.

If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves.
