Be Compassionate

Sunday, February 22nd, 2009

Your compassion for others expands when you allow yourself to be touched by the plight of other people.Your new discoveries about others and yourself in the process can be enlightening and rewarding.
It does not matter if you have experienced similar adversity. Your emotional mind can expand to understand the responses of anyone who is experiencing challenges that outweigh what they can handle. It is very empowering to be of aid to those who really are in need of your compassionate attention and help. It is a gift to you if you respond to those in need rather than doing something that is more pleasurable to you. The satisfaction that you will feel from doing these acts of kindness will enrich your life.When you make the difference in other’s lives, you expand your capacities for compassion and help to change the world.

Acheiving Your Balance

Friday, February 13th, 2009

You are a multi-faceted person. There are many aspects that come together to create the person that you are today. You play and work and expend energy. You communicate with your soul and express sorrow and feel joy too. Balance is what you express when all parts of your life are in perfect sync.

You might be asking” How do I acheive balance”? There are many demands of modern life that can push you to make choices that can put you off balance. These choices have a detrimental effect on your relationships health and career. In creating a balanced lifestyle you have to decide on how much time you are going to alot to the different facets of your life. Draw an imaginary room and take portions of that room to allocate the important aspects of your living. In your drawing give a certain amount of space to relationships, and another amount to health, and another amount to work, and another amount to family, and another amount to play. You would then see where your focus has been. You might find that your room has no room for the important aspects of your life. You may discover that certain elements of your life take up an inordinate amount of time. You can also see if your life is balanced or off balance.

A balanced lifestyle is a style of living in which you have time for obligations as well as pleasures. It is a lifestyle where you find time to live in a gratifying way as well. If you choose to live a balance lifestyle it can help you to gain a greater sense of happiness health and fulfillment.

Your Cyclic Life

Thursday, February 12th, 2009

When you walk through the world you encounter many different people. You see the babies, teenagers,middle age people and older people. Each one is in a different stage of their lives. Each stage is temporary and gives rise to a different phase in their lives. Each stage of life has challenges and gifts. What all stages have in common is that they are temporary. Each stage is precious because it will never last.

One of the great things about babies is that they seem to have no clue about cycles of life. They are simply present to wherever and whatever they are doing right now..
They do not give any thought to the future. They are in the joy of the moment. On the opposite side of the coin are the elderly who are very aware of time and that time should be treasured.

If you are aware of the cycles of life and your place in it, it can bring you some wisdom. If you are a new mother going through challenges with your infant you can be aware that this time will pass. You will embrace the time you have with your infant right now..If you have elderly parents you will embrace the precious moments that you spend with them and want to be with them and their wisdom more often.

Difficult and challenging times are part of the life cycle. Like everything it is a phase of life that is temporary. When you are fully engaged and productive in your life, you expand and grow with each cycle of life. Fully embracing wherever you are in the cycle of life is the very essence of your happiness.

Breathe It All In

Monday, February 9th, 2009

Today take the time to unwind and focus on your breath in a wonderful setting. It will do wonders for your perspective. While you are there become a witness to your thoughts.Your beliefs can become as flexible as you believe.Think of your thoughts like supple trees bending with the weight of the Winter’s snow awaiting the warmth of Spring.
As you expand your consciousness and thoughts there will be others along the way that will not do so. You are here to be a witness not a critic. Be patient,
as everyone grows at his or her speed.As your heart opens you will soar with those who fly, and might find it challenging to watch others who chose the depths of disempowerment.Watching and feeling the melodies and courage of others as they struggle to learn what is really important in this life takes you toward your own personal greatness.

Kindness is Healing

Sunday, February 8th, 2009

True kindness comes from the depth of spiritual creation. The world is filled with true kindness and you only have to open your eyes and spirit to see this. Kindness is the thing that bring us back to G-d and this repairs the world. Kindness of the true sense is complete compassion. It is caring and giving with no wish of anything in return other than the hope of healing another.

As you become more aware you will feel the compassion and kindness that others possess. You will feel better in their presence and feel a sense of awe as well as happiness just being with them. If you are lucky enough to have such people as your friends you can call yourself to be truly blessed. Their true kindness will act as “A Bridge Over Troubled Waters” in difficult junctures in your life. Their true kindness will be filled with patience and a non-judgmental attitude that will lift your spirits and heal your life.

Your Current Awareness

Sunday, February 8th, 2009

Your awareness and intuition is responsible for the way that you respond to the dramas that occur in your life. Make the conscious decision to see your life as filled with meaning. Accepting that everything happens for good reason is a prosperous use of your own personal power. Accept this even if you do not understand or know why things occur as they do.
You have the free will to choose what you want in your life. You are much more wonderful and complex then you realize.Have faith and trust as well as common sense and focus your attention on who and what matters most to you.

Be very clear about your intentions. It is not a skill that is easy to acheive.Like any skill it must be worked on and developed into being. Remember that self empowered people are self determined.When you explore as well as expand your innate power, you flourish. Use your creative power and expression as well as your personal integrity and responsibility to create amd manefest your hopes and dreams. Awaken and develop your innate intelligence and intuition. Enjoy your new awareness!

Keep Moving

Saturday, February 7th, 2009

There may be a day when you feel that you just want to stay at home and relax. That is a very important thing to do…However, you can relax and still move. A special mind body connection can occur when you revel in movements that are the inner
manifestations of your own body rhythms. You can articulate these movements through stretching or dance or simple yoga postures.

A feedback loop will occur when you simply exert yourself and this allows your mind and your body to communicate more freely. The result is a more relaxed and balanced you.
Remember that even if you are relaxing you can still participate in simple movement excercises that will make you feel unihibitally free and happy. Stress and tension that has lingered will melt away as you move. The connection that exists between your mental and physical self will grow stronger as you indulge in movement. My hope is that with that movement you will experience a happy fulfilling day when you stay at home and relax.
