So much Sunshine on a Cloudy Day!

Published 15/10/2016 by inspiringyourspirit

I
My dear friends,

‘Today’s a new day and there is no sunshine’,…  but when I really open my eyes and look with my heart, I see sunshine everywhere πŸ˜„ 

The trees 🌲 giving out their oxygen so we can breathe, bring a smile to my face. The flowers in the park sharing their fragrance with all those who stop and take in their beauty . The children running around with endless energy and enthusiasm their grandparents and parents sharing their games. Even the dark clouds passing overhead , heavy with rain and fit to burst, bring me joy as they will nourish the earth beneath my feet and quench the thirst of the trees and the flowers 🌹 

Sunshine is there for all to see , we just need to ‘stop’ for a while and take in the beauty that is ‘always’ around us πŸ˜„

I wish you all a very happy weekend

Namaste with love ❀️ 

Always

What A Difference A Day Makes!

My Dear Friends,

I came across this image and quote by ‘Thich Nhat Hanh this morning and I just had to use it and create a post as a follow up to my previous two posts. Because his statement is so true “The amount of happiness that you have depends on the amount of freedom you have in your heart”…Wow!

I always felt that my heart was very open and very free, I always hold love in my heart and share my love freely with all, and I truly felt that my life was full of happiness. Yes, we all have bad days, days in which we feel unhappy, unhappy with a relationship, unhappy with our family, our children, unhappiness at work, blah, blah, blah…but generally I felt happy and for most of the time you will always see a smile on my face and I would certainly always try to put a smile on yours πŸ™‚

But how do you really measure happiness?…..

I have been through a few radicle issues and experiences this past few days following on from my sudden death, the experience of watching my body being worked on in the ambulance from above; I guess from the viewpoint of my soul, from my energy being, the true me, and, I realised that I am a being of light, pure energy and my body is just a vessel, a place where my soul has laid its hat for this lifetime, and I am in this body for a brief time, the briefest of time and how easy it is for this life to be STOPPED and for my soul to take flight and move on to its next incarnation, maybe within another physical body here on earth, who really knows!

So what is happiness for me now?…

Well, the jurors are still out thinking about that but what I can say right here and now is….I see life so very differently from that of three days ago, I have always had very strong thoughts on what was and is important in my life, family, friends, humanity, the environment, love, my spirituality etc…But has that changed from this experience?….Yes, it has!

Life is short as I said, and none of us is in control of when its time for us to leave, death is waiting for us all!…… I now have no problem with that, and I now know there is a ‘light at the end of that tunnel’ so to say, and my soul will continue its journey and take me on to continue my service. I now in these past three days sit and contemplate more, I sit in silence, meditate, calm my mind and just be ‘me’, I’m spending more time with me, connecting with my heart and my soul, I look out of the window and actually pay attention, real attention to all the beauty that my eyes can see, what a wonder this is πŸ™‚ The slight differences in the colours of the sky, the shades of blue like the full range of mixed colours on the artist’s palette, the white, the grey and the tints of brown and blue within the clouds, the sun, the shadows, the trees, the green, the brown, the yellow leaves falling to the ground with each gust of wind that passes through the leaves, the noises of my day, the cars on the street, the hum of life as it passes me by, the warmth of my chair, the feeling of unconditional love and warmth as my little dogs pass by my legs as I sit writing this post….My coffee, its aroma, the steam rising from the cup, drawing me in, intoxicating me with its richness, my mind, its openness, its instant ability to just do, the way it directs my fingers to dance its thoughts upon my keyboard…..and my wife ‘May’, the thoughts of her right now, the love she has for me, the support and caring she has for me, her very being, her beauty, her voice, her grace, her compassion, her kindness….My journey, my pathway, my life…where will it take me?

Life is to live, we spend too much time dealing with things of low importance and low value but for most we never even realise these very facts, we amble through life thinking we are happy until the end of days comes and we think ‘I wish I had done that’….!

Well for me, I am going to do ‘That’…I am going to live my life, I am going to do what makes me happy πŸ™‚ …..As I now really, really understand that happiness does not have to have a $ value attached because happiness is what you already have inside your heart, happiness is in each and every one of us….So, my friends, STOP looking for happiness outside, stop looking for happiness through money, just go into your heart and use the senses that were given to you as a child….and LIVE πŸ™‚

Namaste, with Love

Always

Is Your Ego Mind Controlling your Life?

My Dear Friends,

Is your Ego Mind controlling your life?

Many of us allow our Ego Minds to control our lives, and we don’t even realise its happening!

Everyday we look at ourselves in the mirror and tell ourselves we are not beautiful, we are too fat, too thin, face is too long, too round, our hair is a mess, and then we constantly allow ourselves to be dragged down further by our Ego Mind as they day continues….

You cant do that, you will fail at that, that job’s too big for you, you won’t be able to do that, you have no chance with him/or her….. 😦

We tell ourselves that we are ill and its just the way things are, we decide not to do something because something is telling us it won’t happen or it will end in failure!…..

Well, I can tell you to……STOP……STOP allowing your Ego Mind to Control your life.

You have to change the way you are thinking…..Think Positive, think of all the great things that have worked for you, think of all the things in your life that you are grateful for πŸ™‚ …START telling your Ego that you don’t need him/her anymore and ask them to step aside and allow your life to change, to break free of the EGO Mind’s chains that hold you back from reaching your full potential….YOU CAN, YOU CAN, HONESTLY YOU CAN πŸ™‚

Every obstacle, every limitation is ONLY TEMPORARY….. You just need to clear your mind and look at things in a new light, free from the chains of your Ego Mind….Come on my friends, give it a go, be free to live and love your life just how it should be πŸ™‚

Have a wonderful weekend my friends πŸ™‚

Namaste with Love

My Dear Friends,

How often do you measure yourself?…..

We think we are too fat, too thin,

Too tall, too short,

Hair to short or too long,

Face too long, or too round,

Too poor, not smart enough, single, gay, disabled, black brown, yellow, etc etc….

But how often do you stop, think….. and realise….

How much your friends and family love you?…And..

How amazing you really are?

Never, Never Forget……You Are Perfect!….

You Are Perfect, Just The Way You Are…..

You Are You, You Are Special…..

And My Dear Friends, You Are Loved πŸ™‚

Blessings to you all for a wonderful weekend….Stop…Think….And…Remember…

You Are Perfect!

Namaste, With Love

Look deeply inside and connect with the soul

My Dear Friends,

If only!

As the old saying goes ‘Beauty is only skin deep’ and it is oh so true. If only we could peel back the outer layer of everyone we meet and connect directly with their heart and their soul, we would make perfect connections and see the real person inside the human cover.

Connecting heart to heart and soul to soul would teach us so much and our understanding re the needs and wishes of the other person would not be tainted with what we see through our very ‘Ego centric eyes’, he/she is handsome, beautiful, fat, thin, ugly, pretty, smart, scruffy, black, white, yellow, brown, short, tall, blond, brunette, bald, etc, we would truly feel the other person and connect as connections should be made, deeply through the heart and to the soul. Our world, I am sure would be a happier place, a more peaceful place. There would and always will be differences of opinion I’m sure, misunderstandings, cross cultural differences of some sort but I do feel that all in all, our lives, our communications and the relationships forged would be better and stronger than they are now.

Food for thought my friends, food for thought!

The Most Beautiful People In The World

Published 05/06/2015 by inspiringyourspirit

IMG_5359

The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat,

known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths.

These persons have an appreciation, sensitivity, and an understanding of life

that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern.

Beautiful people do not just happen.

Have a wonderful weekend my friends.

Namaste with Love

You Are Much More Beautiful Than You Think!

Published 18/05/2014 by inspiringyourspirit

Hello friends,

Todays post is a short video that was brought to my attention during a mindfulness program I’m doing at the moment, this video was very interesting to me and it brought tears to my eyes when I watched it because we are all guilty of this, we see ourselves very differently from how others see us, always trying to change ourselves to the perfection that we have in our minds eye.

You are beautiful, so why don’t you take a moment and connect with your real self, maybe ask some friends to describe you in a few short sentences, your skin, your face, your hair, your smile, your voice, your body, your personality…Take it from me, the results will bring a smile to your face πŸ™‚

Above the clouds

The sky is blue

The sun is bright

And all is calm.

gift from god

The rays of light shine down

Towards the earth

Pushing their way

Toward your skin

To keep you warm.

The suns rays warm the earth

Promoting growth

Encouraging birth.

Seedlings sprout

Their heads held high

Upwards they push

Toward the sky.

buds

Buds form on tops of stems

Holding a mystery deep inside

Petals untwine and burst open with Joy.

To the world

A new creation

God’s gift

A sweet sensation

Life, and beauty for all to see

Devine Kisses

Butterfly

God was making butterflies,
An angel pleaded with the Most High ~
She wished to come to earth
To be close to flowers ~ with each
Kiss the butterflies receive from flowers,
The angel wished the kisses to suffering souls.
God made a bargain with the angel: β€œIf you bless
Everyone, not just the suffering, I will grant your request.”
β€œMost Compassionate, Most Merciful, Most Gracious,
I accept your conditions”, the angel replied as she flew off on butterflies’ wings ~

A stunningly beautiful Poem

The Beauty of Nature

Published 24/11/2012 by inspiringyourspirit

Natural Life.

Take a moment to notice
The beauty of the trees.
Sit and take a look
At the dancing leaves.
Note the little child
Laughing, playing with a toy.
Always so full of energy;
Humongous amounts of joy.
Don’t crush the insects,
Who are 1/1000ths of your weight.
They may creep up your path,
But don’t decide their fate.
Life’s not about avoiding storms.
Instead, dance in the rain.
The Earth is so beautiful;
Why must we cause it’s pain?
Take time off your busy schedule
To glance at the starry night.
Because nature is genius.
So pretty, such a sight!

Miranda A.
