We have read these, we have heard these spoken of, we sort of know this but how in the world are we to do this?!
It comes in a variety of ways but the gist of it is that we are beautiful beings of love and light, that when we love and have compassion for others, the vibrations radiate out like the ripples in a body of water touching others, lifting up the energies of those around us, affecting in a positive way our situations and the environment within our circumference and beyond.
Here’s the thing though, it’s one thing for me to know that I’m a being of light and love but quite another to actually feel any love for that particular moron who cuts right in front of me without using the indicator or those silly dare devils who drive through red lights, especially when my mind goes on a rampage of how inconsiderate and dangerous they are, doing that.
Or how about when I inadvertently come across an article on the atrocities going on in my country…Bible burning, raiding of Hindu temples, disregard and disrespect for all others in the name of safe guarding the Muslim faith and the like…on Facebook! (So much for not reading the newspapers or watching the news…there’s always my trusty Facebook! D’oh!) I mean, I get pissed off…and I don’t even have to read the full article, just the title with the little snippet that comes with it. HOW am I going to feel love and compassion for those who are clearly acting like playground bullies (and feel free to add other colourful words)…how?? how??? HOW?
Recently I (and Youtube and the iMovie program) nearly drove me up the wall while trying to work on something. Thankfully I figured a way to get it done by using a free audio upload site called yourlisten, and because I honestly did not like Youtube and iMovie making me want to pull my hair out, I fiddled with it some more wanting to show them that I *could* do it! – use the program to make a video and upload it on Youtube. I was determined to do it, even if it took me a gazillion hours . (On a side note, it sometimes amazes me at the things I tend to be persistent about and those things that I give up on)
So after experimenting further with iMovie and watching loads of helpful Youtube videos….I made my own! It’s a first attempt and probably not very smoothly done, but I’m still quite happy with it 😀
Scott Adams of Dilbert fame has written a beautiful book on free will. How much of free will is free ? That is debatable question Shree!! Though certain choices we take may seem individualistic, but do you think it is so ? All our choices are interlinked and to put it more correctly we are like electrons who are impacted by the behavior of electrons of the neighboring atom/molecule. All our choices are interlinked and free will is free to a certain extent of our knowledge. I would love to know your thoughts on this. – Aarthi from timesinteresting
Is free will absolutely free? Don’t our choices impact others and if they do, does it mean that it’s not really free?
Some time ago I read an awesome blog post over at Nancy’s blog (Spirit Lights the Way) called Ziggy’s Problem…Too Much Stuff! Though it was about Ziggy the Zebra having too much stuff , reading that post got me to reflect on myself.
One of the more important questions in life, if not the most for some is “Where is the joy in my life?” Sometimes the way the “joy question” is put can vary; “Do I enjoy what I do?”, “Does what I do bring me joy?”, “WHAT is it that brings me joy??”, “Why do I feel this void within me?” and so on and so forth.
The question of “What is it that brings me joy?” and the quest for the answer has been in the forefront of my mind for some time now and it was only very recently, maybe a week or so ago that it suddenly dawned on me! I might be going about this quest from the wrong angle!!
Every day, every moment in our lives we make choices. We make choices on what we think, what we say and what we do. We make big choices and small choices, but each regardless of its “size” or “importance” has its consequences on ourselves,the path that we travel and those around us. The one thing I can say that we don’t really choose is our emotions, but what we do in response to those emotions is again a choice that we make. Continue reading “Making choices”→
In her book, The Diary of a Psychic by Sonia Choquette, she shares with the reader some of the lessons that she learned from her teacher, Charlie. One of the lessons or tips that he imparts to her is that the Lord’s Prayer can be used as a way to tune the seven main chakras or energy centers with in a person.
She shares the about, but not the how.
I found it really interesting and am planning to use it as well. So I thought I’d just do a little how – to post on it 🙂
It is only when we silent the blaring sounds of our daily existence that we can finally hear the whispers of truth that life reveals to us, as it stands knocking on the doorsteps of our hearts. ~K.T. Jong
Everybody is after being extraordinary. That is the search of the ego: to be someone who is special, to be someone who is unique, incomparable. And this is the paradox: the more you try to be exceptional, the more ordinary you look, because everybody is after extraordinariness. It is such an ordinary desire. – Osho; The Book of Understanding
