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.
Eventually, we re…

Ventures Into Love : Day 17

You know that awesome tingly 'I have so got this! Things are going to rock from here on!' feeling that blossoms in your gut when you take up something new, start out on a new journey and the likes?

For example, the first day of a new exercise routine, or the beginning of a new hobby… the beginning of a new job, the first great conversation with a nice person we really like, the start of a new self – help book…
Any beginning by choice and passion is a cause for joy and I think I speak for everyone when I say that.
Have you also noticed how that this feeling is confined to the beginning only, in many scenarios in life?
I'll go with an example from my own life..
Whenever I read an awesome saucy 'self help' book, I feel psyched out and buzz – filled! I write down my dreams and I take the steps happily, genuinely excited about the changes I am helping bring about…
Then comes the second stage… that stage where the previously lovely ideas and wishes and hopes start feeli…
