Let’s Not Get In Our Own Way…

k0299031Those times that we look around, scrutinize, and compare what we have & where we’re at wit others, can destroy our potential to achieve everything that we can have. Let’s stick to minding our own business…that’s the only way we can receive what’s available to us.  ~Randi B.

“There is a Life Stream that flows to you, and this is a Stream of clarity, a Stream of wellness, a Stream of abundance… and in any moment, you are allowing it or not. What someone else does with the Stream, or not, does not have anything to do with how much of it will be left for you. This Stream is as abundant as your ideas allow it to be.”

No Problems ~ No Mistakes

Orange BuildingWhat if we thought of them as ’Situations’? If we feel less scared by taking the edge off, can we find solutions to our situations, with calmness & clarity? If we then add some hope & certainty that a solution is available, can we use our feelings of hope & certainty to add a little patience?, then with a feeling ofhope, certainty & patience, can we then begin to create & feel a flicker of joy?, and with that new spark of joy, can we actually heal ourselves?…Nanotechnology, physical science & Spirituality say yup!

Do we need to label & judge situations in our minds & call them problems or mistakes? I don’t know, but we do it, even if we don’t want to. Can we turn off or at least control our crazy internal yackity yacking mind, if it’s causing us to get in our own way? Absolutely! We have full & total control over our thoughts.

I think in our culture we’re taught to be hard on ourselves, but it doesn’t do any good. There’s a lot of repair that needs to take place, after the fallout. That’s why our free will is so amazing. With it comes free thinking, and with that we can guide our thoughts in a direction that makes sense for us. With our ability to do that, we can take the edge off our feelings by converting a judgmental negative thought toward a problem into a gentler, more compassionate one by knowing that life is all about dealing with a variety of situations. If we don’t spook ourselves, we’ll then have a better chance at finding the best solutions while successfully learning how to navigate through life. Then we can free up our creative minds for other purposeful things.

Believe you can, then you can!

Green Inside & Out

treesLiving a green lifestyle is a responsible step in the right direction for our Earth. Recycling, using fuel efficient, non-toxic, ’safe for the environment’ products is what we need to do in our daily lives to create a better world. Hoorah! That’s not the whole picture. There exists a metaphysical world that we cannot see (without a microscope), but we can feel & sense. We know when we’ve entered a toxic negative zone. Eww! (FYI: I go bye-bye).

I’ll try everyday to add & connect to the positive collective energy that exists in our environment…by taking responsibility for my own happiness, being kind, having compassion and sharing that feeling of joy.

Passing on fun energy to others contributes to a healthier Invisible Green environment…just because we can’t see it doesn’t mean it’s not there, ie. Gravity & Electricity, etc…

Enjoy your moments, every moment!

Comm’unity’ Begins With Us…

DoggiesRecently Oprah expressed to the press that she can’t believe she’s gained weight again. That surprised me! Yes, she’s just like us in that way, where we’re all a little insecure ’bout somethin’…on our bodies! But I wish, wish, wish that she’d stop focusing on her weight because those thoughts are destructive, no matter who you are! She has so much to offer, and she continues to be generous, but she can do so much more, if her mind wasn’t occupied & distracted with negative thoughts, about her looks. She’s beautiful no matter what her size is!

In the 21st Century, isn’t it amazing that our ego’s still push us around…everyone’s effected by this particular disorder, some more, some less…it’s a part of our human nature, our machinery, our chemical or spiritual (?) makeup.

Ok, so instead of waiting for magnificent role models to show us how to over ride our egos, let’s take control over doing that for ourselves.

Why should we? Well, we can share so much more if we focus on what other people need, and stop worrying about what we’re getting back. I’m guessing that we (me included!) want to look ‘right’ so that we’ll get something back from others that will feel good, like attention, affection, a self esteem boost, etc…but there’s something called the “covalent bond”, found in water that allows its cellular makeup to attach to itself, to stay together. These molecules watch each other’s back!  They are a family like no other!

If people thought about other people’s welfare in a similar way, then that magical circuitry will come around full circle, where everyone gets a dose of love. I find that I’m happiest when I don’t take inventory on what I’m getting back. Sharing unconditionally is such a joy when I do it without emotional strings attached. I have to keep an eye on myself though, because I too have an active ego, which I frequently have to beat down with a big stick. No one’s gonna do that for us & the result is that we’ll be there for each other…we’re in this world together! We’re made up of cells & molecules. I don’t see why we can’t share a covalent bond with each other if we put our conscious minds to it.

Yes we can! I’m in, are you?
