Who am I? Who are You?

Am Blessed and Grateful to be on this beautiful journey.. . I like to help people to feel good about themselves, and to live their lives to the fullest. When it comes right down to it, everyone’s job is to live life. Everyone’s job is about walking their unique path and accomplishing their life’s purpose.

There’s a lot of confusion between what a person does and who that person really is. We are taught that a person is what they do. 

When introducing themselves, adults don’t ask each other what their favorite color is or if they like the smell of wet grass in the spring. Instead they ask, “what do you do?” and then make all kinds of quick judgments based on the answer to that one question.

We are also taught to define and value and make judgments about ourselves by what we do.

But we are not what we do! We are a collection of our life experiences, feelings, emotions, beliefs, and ways of thinking. What we do is merely one tiny aspect of who we really are.

Do you want to be right or happy?

“When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.” ~Lao Tzu

How many of you have often felt: “why can’t my partner listen to me?, she/he would see that I am right.” Isn’t this something a lot of us relate to? We acquire this “I’m right” mentality quite honestly. As we were growing up, we believed that the way things were in our family was the way things were in the world. Our parents were our main models for relationship and marriage. Unfortunately, our partner also formed their beliefs through their family, a different family than the one in which we grew up. Now what do we do? Could there be more than one “right way” to do something? Only after we get older and experience other couples and how they relate, or we begin to work on ourselves, can we even imagine the possibility that there might be something different than what we grew up accepting.

What is more detrimental to happiness than the pursuit of being right … which is to say, being seen as right. For personal proof of this, consider the people you know who are most insistent on their politics, their patterns, their viewpoint, their way… they tend to judge the most, insult the most, complain the most, and suffer the most.

Honestly try this – the next time you KNOW you are right about any situation with a anyone close to you whose viewpoint opposes yours, just try and let go of the need to BE right and give your opinion.

Even when that “I know I am right and he is wrong” feeling fills you,stop yourself from reacting this time.

Think about it – Is there truly a reason to even pursue the feeling? Will resolving the difference really lead to an important benefit, such as preventing accidents, improving health, making or saving money or the like? If so, consciously remind yourself to proceed softly and kindly this time … remind yourself (and tell the other person!) that you are pursuing this discussion gently only to achieve the desired benefit, not to be seen as right.

After this first time of letting go of the need to be right — even and especially if it means the other person will think they’re right – watch what happens. Most probably, Nothing – your world won’t collapse. Things won’t fall to pieces because you didn’t try to prove that your point was right.

Walk your talk and watch people ( in time ) follow suite. They ALSO end up backing off the need to be right, making life all the more pleasant.

Let’s just keep in mind that our blessing in life is The pursuit of happiness

The Lotus flower and Humans

Pink-Lotus-and-Green-Leaves-Top-HD-Wallpaper

“The lotus is the most beautiful flower, whose petals open one by one. But it will only grow in the mud. In order to grow and gain wisdom, first you must have the mud — the obstacles of life and its suffering. … The mud speaks of the common ground that humans share, no matter what our stations in life. … Whether we have it all or we have nothing, we are all faced with the same obstacles: sadness, loss, illness, dying and death. If we are to strive as human beings to gain more wisdom, more kindness and more compassion, we must have the intention to grow as a lotus and open each petal one by one. ”
― Goldie Hawn

lotusHere is a beautiful Buddhist Lotus Meditation:

Imagine that you are a lotus seed buried beneath a muddy lotus pond. There is mud all around you, and you can feel them clearly. Above you, above this muddy pool of dirt, mud and filth, are sunshine and air. You are not disheartened as you begin your journey towards the surface.

With a determined heart, you begin to wiggle in the earth. You grow roots deep, deep into the mud. Your little stem grows up slowly. Suddenly, “pop” you are out of the mud! Your stem grows higher and higher, taller and taller. You rise up slowly, fighting against the muddy water. All of a sudden, you are out of the muddy pond! You reach up towards the warm sun, shining down on you.

Your lotus bud begins to grow on top of your stem. It expands and grows larger and larger, finally bursting into full bloom. A white lotus flower. You stand beautifully above the muddy water, not dirtied by the mud from which you grow. You are white, fragrant and beautiful.

Everyone who saw you marvelled at your beauty! Your determination to grow out of the muddy pond reminds them of the Buddha and his journey towards Enlightenment. The Buddha, like a lotus, is determined to grow out of the muddy surroundings, that is the defilements and sufferings of life. He has done all that is to be done and he is showing us that we can all do it too. We may have defilements but we all have the potential of growing out of our defilements and achieving wisdom, like the Buddha.

You are a beautiful white lotus flower, and your role is to remind people to rise above their defilements and sufferings, just as you are arising above the muddy water and not dirtied by the mud from which you grow.

Supercharge Your crystals during Full Moon

During the Full Moon, charging your gemstones is an opportune time to not only cleanse the energy of your crystals and whatever other talismans you may carry, but it also magnifies the energies of the said objects. Full Moon energy is potent with the energy of fullness, abundance, attraction, manifestation, love– so keep in mind which stones and objects you want to amplify. That being said, you can charge objects at different moon phases for different energies you want to enhance.

Rose quartz is often called the “Love Stone.” It carries a soft feminine energy of compassion and peace, tenderness, healing, nourishment and comfort. It speaks directly to the Heart Chakra, dissolving emotional wounds, fears and resentments, and circulates a Divine loving energy throughout the entire aura.

A Place to share your Gratitude.

We wake up daily with so many things on our minds. So much to do, complete, achieve…
In the process often we lose that connection with ourselves.

We sat often in groups and have chanted and chatted and shared a lot. One morning i thought everybody seems to wake up or at some point during the day seems to get onto either Facebook or some other form of social media to connect with what’s happening in the world.

11008435_10152565176582554_4589072279023125719_n

So I decided to start a group to Thank the Universe for something personal. Why are we so scared to share something so personal and profound – we can share what we do, what we eat, where we eat,what we wear, where we go…
So why not something we are Grateful for too.

We often share our emotions via photographs or links we see. But No! Here we are only allowed to share what we feel, straight from our hearts.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/641898915916480/664840886955616/?notif_t=group_comment

Please do join us in this wonderful group 🙂 It is a closed group But just ask and I will add You on.

Looking forward to a lot of sharing.

With love and GRATITUDE 🙂

Be like a Dolphin

Be like a Dolphin

We need to learn to be like the Dolphins..graceful, powerful and compassionate.. Not letting all that is happening around us affect us so much..
We need to learn to embrace it all and learn to just ‘BE’.

Throughout history, humans have shared closer bonds with dolphins than with any other type of aquatic animal. People are drawn to dolphins for their intelligence, compassion, and playfulness, and dolphins seem to be just as powerfully drawn to human beings as humans are to them.

Love this quote:
“Humans think they are smarter than dolphins because we build cars and buildings and start wars etc…and all that dolphins do is swim in the water, eat fish and play around. Dolphins believe that they are smarter for exactly the same reasons.”

So what would you rather do? Build cars and buildings or just swim around and play? How about a balance of both?
