Your own inherent computer which is your biology is influenced by your complex responses to life. It is loyal to you in the feedback it gives you based on your thoughts and deep feelings.As you confront yourself and look deeply into your thoughts and feelings, you might feel like you are peeling off old layers and shedding some part of yourself that is not serving you well.
The decision to look at your life and see the inherent meaning in it is a huge decision on your part. It consists of the deep realization that everything occurs for a special reason even if you cannot immediately see it or even understand it. This understanding is so worthwhile as it is a way of benefiting from your own personal power. The transformation of your human consciousness calls for you to accept responsibility for your own thoughts and feelings. For you are the person who is ultimately reponsible for yourself.

Spend Time in Nature

If you spend an inordinate amount of time with electronic entertainment, you are not alone. More and more people are spending
their free time on computers and other equipment with the same type of frequency. If this describes you, then it is essential that you spend an equal amount of time in another type of frequency called nature.
You can empower yourself and set many positive thoughts into motion when you resonate with nature. In this atmosphere your own frequenncy shifts. It becomes more relaxed and quieter. By simply focusing on your breath and sitting and looking at a lovely vista and appreciating it’s beauty you are feeding yourself good thoughts and changing your frequency to a more positive one. Nature is a positive symbol for your system to interact with and bring good frequency to you. Just take a walk in a lovely area where there are plants beautiful trees and butterflies and see for yourself how your energy shifts to the positive. Make it a habit to resonate with nature and appreciate it’s beauty and see how much better you will feel.

Find Work That Nurtures Your Soul

Tuesday, August 12th, 2008

It is so important to search for our heart’s longing and to be able to feel great satisfaction in the work that we are doing.
In the Zen tradition work is a integral part of the monk’s life. It is as important as their prayers and meditation practice,,
Whether or not we do our work with total mindfulness, it is important to realize that our work affects our soul in profound ways.
Where we feel that there is no artfulness in our work there is a weakening of our soul. We need to feel a grounding and humaness in our work that not only feeds our brain but our hearts as well.

The more deeply that our work stirs our imaginings, the more deeply it will stir our souls., awaken them and satisfy the very root of our being. We craft ourselves and individuate ourselves through our work.
When the soul is involved in our works it is not carried out by our egos alone. Our works then come from a deeper
place that is rooted in passion spontaneity and grace. Finding the right work is like discovering your own soul in this world…

Don’t Worry Be Happy

Tuesday, August 5th, 2008

If you realize that nothing really lasts in this life it brings a new perspective to your thinking processes. The realization that happiness is fleeting and so is saddness can help you in your daily responses to life’s challenges. This understanding can be of help in making wiser responses to issues that appear.

There is extra pain in the mind when one hangs on by thought to those thoughts that are damaging to living in the now. There is great pain caused by attaching to those thoughts based on sad circumstances that are true. By struggling with these thoughts and clinging to them instead of accomodating to life’s circumstances , great pain can be endured. The mind free of tension is
soft. It is malleable. It uses the wisdom of insight to asborb shocks and retain its ease in all circumstances.

Peace of heart and a noble existence are not dependent on external things and circumstances. By practicing mindfulness, comes
a clear and balanced understanding of living.
