Opening

When I allow an unpleasant event to happen, I become an opening through which the universe enters this  world. I become soft and yielding, instead of hard and inflexible. I enable space to flow into my limited self. I don’t get pulled into the tears, the drama, the suffering. I look at the situation as if it were happening to somebody else.

When I am in this state of acceptance, the situation suddenly shifts. I am able to see the good that was hiding underneath the bad.  Why? Because there is balance in universe and when I become pliant, I open up the space for one form (good) to move into another form (bad). Underneath any event or situation, life is benevolent and abundant.

Awaken

When we awaken to the power within us, we don’t pick up the guilt, anger or resentment that are thrown our way. We watch an explosive situation with no comment or judgment. We do this for no other reason than to understand it, to learn as much as we could about it. We don’t seek to change it, interpret it, or blame it. We make the anger, guilt or resentment a non-issue. We allow it to be there. The strange thing is that when we are in this state of acceptance, the situation begins to change. Why? Because we allowed space to penetrate our consciousness and diffuse the negative energy that was swirling around us. We then experience the bliss that was hiding underneath the negativity.

Streaming

My mind constantly streams thoughts of the past and the future. I look to the past for my identity and to the future for my fulfillment. Both are illusions. Only the present moment can free me of these illusions.

But how can I stop the constant streaming in my head? The key is to watch my thoughts with no comments or judgments.  I look at them as if I have no connection to them whatsoever. I am saying, “I am here and my thoughts are there.” When I dis-entangle myself from thinking, I take emotions out of my thoughts.

The curious thing is that when I dis-identify with my thoughts, they no longer drag me down the river of despair and anxiety. Thus, the past loses its power to control me and the future loses its promise to fulfill me. I become free.

Surrender

 

nature-tree-green-pine.jpgWhen I surrender to the present moment, I go with the flow of life. I open myself to life, and life moves through me. Miraculously, people come to my aid. Out of the blue, a solution arises to a perplexing problem. A creative idea pops into my head. The blockage that was inside me suddenly disappeared and is replaced by stillness–an alive presence that is one with all and untouched by it all. I feel my connection with everything and know that all is well.

When I watch everything that happens to me without judgment or comment, I become one with the present moment. I stop identifying with anything or anyone. I become free.

I start to focus on what I have, rather than what I don’t have. I realize that whatever I need will be given to me at the right moment. I begin to trust in life. I experience bliss.

A Happy and Blissful New Year to all!

Fresh

When I feel the stillness within me, I am fresh and alive. There may be turbulence swirling around me in the form of drama, anxiety or stress, but I recognize it as energy movement passing through my existence. In the midst of it all, I am peaceful and calm. I am a detached observer watching the situation unfold.

It is during this period of alertness that right action happens through me. I am able to see clearly what needs to be done and I act on it. I am alert and open to all the possibilities the universe has to offer.

Knot

When we don’t accept what is, we go against the flow of life.  We are in a constant state of unease. We regret what happened in the past and worry about what the future may bring. We are taken in by the thoughts swirling in our head. We tie ourselves into little knots that the life force within us is stifled. Energy can not flow freely within our body. It gets stuck somewhere in our being and manifests in diseases and maladies.

How do we free ourselves from the incessant chatter of our mind? We start by observing that we have a noisy mind. We watch the steady stream of ideas and opinions in our head with no comment or judgment. We allow our mind to be turbulent. The strange thing is that when we accept our mind as raucous, the noise within gradually lessens. Why? Because we no longer energize our thoughts with emotions. We have created space within ourselves and between our thoughts. We realize that things that were of utmost importance no longer matter that much when viewed against the background of space.

Gradually, we untie the knot. The energy that was stuck within us is freed. We feel vibrant and alive and are able to connect with all beings. We embrace life in all its abundance and glory.
