Just take a deep breath. Feel it hitting in the middle of the chest. Feel as if the whole existence is pouring into you, into your heart. Do it at least five times – deep breaths; take it in, fill the heart. Just feel in the heart centre that existence is pouring in vitality, life.
Now exhale deeply, again from the heart, and feel you are pouring all that has been given to you back into existence. Do it many times in the day, but whenever you do it, do five breaths at once.
That will help you to shift from the head to the heart. And you will become more and more sensitive, more and more aware of many things of which you have not been aware. You will smell more, taste more, touch more, see more, hear more; everything will become intense. You will start feeling life really throbbing in you, ready to jump, ready to flow.
Remember that happiness comes from within, not from the world around you. So decide to be happy right now, and never let it be taken away by things that happen, you may not choose the situations in your life, but you do choose how you react.
So next time something happens that’s not so pleasant, just laugh with joy!
“Even a stone, and more easily a flower or a bird, could show you the way back to God, to the Source, to yourself. When you look at it or hold it & let it be without imposing a word of mental label on it, a sense of awe, of wonder, arises within you. Its essence silently communicates itself to you and reflects your own essence back to you.”—Eckhart Tolle
I’ve decided to start to post my thoughts on spirituality, so from now on hopefully from time to time, I’ll try to share a little wisdom, and I’ll try to help you on your journey.
Stop whatever it is you are doing right now. Realize nothing is ‘important.’ Nothing in the material world will bring you happiness. Happiness is in this moment, it is your choice. Don’t look for it. Just be. Don’t think. Just let it be.
Try to put in a little bit of meditation into your day. It shouldn’t be hard. You shouldn’t try. Just stop what you’re doing and pay attention to your breathing. Let it come to you naturally. Let this moment be all there is. Let nothing become your everything. With a little bit of meditation every day you will stop thinking unconsciously as much, and the light within you will shine more, it will bring inner peace.
1“Go ahead an do what you really love to do! Do nothing else! You have so little time. How can you think of wasting a moment doing something for a living you don’t like to do? What kind of a living is that? That is not a living, that is a dying!”
2“You are making a mockery of Me. You are saying that I, God, made inherently imperfect beings, then have demanded of them to be perfect, or face damnation. You are saying then that, somewhere several thousand years into the world’s experience, I relented, saying that from then on you didn’t necessarily have to be good, you simply had to feel bad when you were not being good, and accept as your savior the One Being who could always be perfect, thus satisfying My hunger for perfection. You are saying that My Son–who you call the One Perfect One–has saved you from your own imperfection–the imperfection that I gave you. In other words, God’s Son has saved you from what His Father did.”
3“There is no coincidence, and nothing happens ‘by accident.’ Each event and adventure is called to your Self by your Self in order that you might create and experience Who You Really Are. All that is required is to know this. For you are the creator of your own reality, and life can show up in no other way for you than the way in which you think it will.”
4“The purpose of a relationship is not to have another who might complete you; but to have another with whom you might share your completeness.”
5“The laws are very simple: 1. Thought is creative. 2. Fear attracts like energy. 3. Love is all there is.”
6“Heaven–as you call it–is nowhere. Let’s just put some space between the w and the h in that word and you’ll that heaven is now…here.”
7“Know and understand that there will be challenges and difficult times. Don’t try to avoid them. Welcome them. Gratefully. Cultivate the technique of seeing all problems as opportunities. Opportunities to…be, an decide, Who You Really Are.”
8“If you want guarantees in life, then you don’t want life. You want rehearsals for a script that’s already been written. Life by its nature cannot have guarantees, or its whole purpose is thwarted.”
9“To live your life without expectation–without the need for specific results–that is freedom. That is Godliness.”
10“Never resist anything. If you think that by your resistance you will eliminate it, think again. You only plant is more firmly in place. Have I not told you that all thought is creative?”
