Seize Every Moment

“You’ll seldom experience regret for anything that you’ve done. It is what you haven’t done that will torment you. The message, therefore, is clear. Do it! Develop an appreciation for the present moment. Seize every second of your life and savor it.”

Wayne Dyer

Positivity and Living

What happens when you focus on retraining yourself to think positive, stay present, stay in gratitude, bring light to all situations, serve your creator and love without conditions?

Life opens up in ways unimaginable.

Yes it takes practice, especially when we have lived our lives contrary to this way of life.

We never get perfect.

However, I’ve experienced and continue to experience the dramatic turn life takes when constantly practicing this way of life.

Every single area of my life has gotten better.

Most importantly I have been given inner peace, love, connection, companionship, and more ways to serve the planet and the people on it.

It’s been possible by holding on during the tough times and riding it like the wind when it’s great.

Out of Self

When I am suffering, the answer may seem to be to delve into “self” and go into past stories of my life to find the answer to my problem. Some may say we need to “process” what we’ve been through to get to a state of well being.

Yet my problem is of a spiritual nature.

And every spiritual teaching tells us that the answer is to get out of self.

The idea of self is just ego trying to create separation between ourselves, God and others.

The more I go into my story, my past, my own suffering, I just get more of the same.

When we get out of self, remember that we are not separate at all, we finally feel the oneness with all that is created.

We know we are just a part of the same whole.

We find relief in giving more love to others, taking less interest in our own selfish wants and desires.

We find we are understood only in the understanding of others.

However we cannot fully understand and accept others until we love them unconditionally first.

We find comfort in comforting others.

The peace and comfort I wish to find is never in the seeking for myself.

Today my only goal is to be loving to those in my life.

I never know if I’ll have a tomorrow.

Finding Peace Today

Surrendering to the divine plan of the universe is so much easier than trying to exert my will against it.

There is nothing to figure out.

Today I need do nothing but just be the creature God intended me to be.

I just need to do the next thing presented to me.

If I just stay present, out of the allusion of self and serve others with love, I can be at peace.

Moments

Moments in time
Pass in the blink of an eye
Intersecting across time
Rippling across earth

Creating a divine plan
Changing destinies
New sacred paths
Actions not taken

Missed opportunities
New experiences come
Winding through each life
The present becomes past

A faint trail behind us
The voice speaks
To listen or ignore
The trail winds again

Tomorrow is not promised
The sands of the hourglass sift
Never catching yesterday
Would my soul be at peace?

Creating Reality

The problem that causes all of my “problems” in this human experience lies not in truth but in my perception of my day.

My reality is based in the story I tell myself. My feelings follow from whatever story I am telling myself.

Most always, nothing changes in my day. Truth does not change. It’s the story I start telling myself from my thoughts that cause me to feel a certain way.

It comes from my judgement of events.

That judgement comes from belief systems not based in truth.

I can start to tell myself a new story.

I can tell myself any story I wish and then my feelings can change around what I see is happening.

I can tell myself wonderful stories, stories of gratitude, and create a wonderful existence.

I have the power to control my feelings.

I can tell myself that every moment in my present life is bringing me to something greater.

It lies in the connection of mind, body and spirit.

Guided by spirit, I can change what my mind thinks, my “feelings” and the reaction of my body to my thinking mind.

Being constantly aware of the story I tell myself takes practice.

If I let God in I have the power to change it all, to change my entire reality.

 

Perfect Alignment

In moments still and calm when only the stars speak to the moon

When birds sing in the midnight air

Braided weave of arms and legs

Spinning from gentle affection

Hanging on every word

Godly eyes mirroring each other

No thoughts but only an overwhelming feeling

Souls dancing in perfect alignment

Fingers brushing cheeks, ears and mouths

Lips meet softer than the breeze of summer

Two breathing each other in

No walls and hearts are exposed

Egos left at the door

And in this moment

Love and all of it’s wonder exists in perfection freedom

All Things Starting With God

Everything that I have gained on this new part of my spiritual journey has been a result of my relationship with God.

My primary relationship has to be with God and from the solid existence of that, all other relationships flourish.

Everything in my life is effortless when I cultivate a conscious contact with God.

I can trust in the fact that everything that happens in the world around me is necessary and all I have to do is follow my truth and just be in the present.

I can listen to that voice inside me and follow it walking through any fear, knowing that no matter what I will get exactly what I need, I will be exactly where I am supposed to be and I will be completely taken care of.

I can be vulnerable.

I can say what I need to say.

I can allow others to love me.

I can give unconditional love to others.

I don’t have to play a character to try to keep myself “safe”.

I can be okay in the world with out “needing” anything.

When I stay in God’s will for me instead of my own, everything works out so much better.
