Ventures Into Love: Day 14

When I am in my room, I find it so easy to focus on the truth of me; how loved I am, that love is all there is, I am powerful beyond imagination… the works.


 But when I am in a crowd, in class, standing in line, waiting with a group of people, I find it so hard to focus. Impossible even.

All those affirmations, beliefs and practices go right out of the window, in such situations and I am left wondering about the usefulness of  enlightenment, if it doesn’t aid you in moments of need.

I think I am not alone in this. We have all been in situations where the group's energy and currents have engulfed us completely, beyond the scope of clarity.

When we are in a group, fully aware of our body and the surrounding physical world, we begin relying on our mortal strength and knowingness.
In other words, the ego takes charge.
We can’t help but let it take charge, because it is the only way we can see in the moment to get out of the suffering. And the endless narrations and suggestions begin, with our minds swaying and billowing, struggling and pining for escape, whining and pitying.
Luckily, or not so randomly, I came across a beautiful gift. An age old practice featured in a life changing book…

….
Metta is a Buddhist practice  wherein one pours loving energy into the now. Quite simply, you allow love, peace, happiness, joy, compassion, kindness, belonging, comfort, safety, connection and energy to flow into your awareness; you also allow it to flow into everyone around you.



This is awesome! Pure sheer awesomeness….
By allowing the love to flow into you, by opening yourself to receiving, you stop doing and pushing and wanting and needing… you instead start being, what you already are. Which is what we are trying for, by all our meaningless pushing.
The peace you experience out of this practice is simply a manifestation of the truth that there is nowhere you need to go and nothing you have to do to be what you already are.


….
Today, send Thoughts Of Love into everyone’s lives. Send love to the stranger walking past you,


send joy to the neighbours you fought with,
 send love to the trees gracing your path,
send fun and laughter to sad people,
 send goodness into the lives of your dear family members,
Send angels of beauty and peace into the awareness of everyone you meet.
Will this make an actual tangible difference?
YES.


Every thought is actual energy, with more substance to it than we ever give it credit for.
The people you send love to will not obviously, know that you are sending them thoughts of love. They will receive it in the form of support and love that they need in that moment.

You are aligning with the Universal Order and Flow of Absolutely Fascinating Fantabulous Cooolness and you get to play your part in the real adventure that we all embarked together…

This is exactly how happy you will feel when all your areas of transformation have come to pass in the most awesome ways possible.
By doing this activity, among the others that we have been doing all these days, we are going to that place, that paradise of Perfection that we yearn for, right now. Only this way is way more effortless and easy and joy filled than a 31 step program to success.
So send that love! Have that fun! Feel that joy, NOW!
LOVE YA' ALL!!!😘😘😘😘

Ventures into Love - Day 12

Here’s how life is supposed to work; how we are taught that the world works, how we are supposed to integrate into the mayhem: Dream big. Work for it. Be bold. Go for it NOW. Have a vision. Break the steps down into bite sized pieces and keep making progress every single day. I am actually feeling slightly breathless, just typing those words. The thing is, this kind of pushing and prodding, this complete reliance over one's willpower that stems from the brain and it’s storehouse of experiences filtered through beliefs that alter the experience to a nutshell of what really is, is frankly exhausting. Sure, when we face a particularly trying situation or we are subject to an enrapturing inspiring speech, we feel charged up and energetic. We feel like we have so much to offer, so much that we can do, so much energy to run all the way to the top, that we enthusiastically take steps, turn over new stones, meet people, network and feel euphoric. For some time, that is. Eventu

Ventures Into Love: Day 8

Sometimes, our traps are so simple. The keys to these traps can be right there and yet, we fail to see them. Until we do. And realise that there was no need for repairs from the outside. It was us the whole damn time.  For me, the last practice( playing the detective) was mind boggling because I am now discovering so many words that I use which don’t serve me in the very least. And the fun part is so fun: choosing a new thought along the lines of a belief that is better suited for me is so much better than shopping! Today’s activity goes into this very same practice with a more specific goal at heart; to identify and change a story you are telling. This might be any kind of a story – a story that explains and justifies why you are the way you are, or a story that makes it okay for you to not be happier, a story that you think is true of yourself a story you feel trapped by, a story of neglect, a story for lack of compassion – that you tell to yourself or to others. Basically,

It's okay.

It’s okay. It’s okay to try and not get it right. It’s okay to not even try in the first place. It’s okay to hold on real tight and you don’t want to let go even though you know it hurts.  It’s okay to love the wrong things. It’s okay to love the right things. It’s okay to be confused about life. It’s okay to feel proud of your saunter. It’s okay to hate your life too. It’s okay to want to change. It’s okay to want to stay exactly as you are. It’s okay to want to leave. Its okay to never want to leave. It’s okay to feel annoyed. It’s okay to feel happy doing nothing. It’s okay to want to do something. It’s okay to want help. It’s okay to not want to take help. It’s okay to be selfish. It’s okay to be selfless. It’s okay to love with abandon. It’s okay to not want to love with abandon. It’s okay to be afraid of the dark. It’s okay to like being in the dark too. It’s okay to be afraid of facing the light. It’s okay if you can’t find the light. It’s okay if you wan
