We See What We Believe

goodbetterbest - fbi

We see what we believe

Beliefs are the lens

Determining our vision

The physic structure we live within

Take a walk inside

Is  this physic house too small

Shall we change it for a larger one

With, perhaps more windows and doors

Or perhaps we could step out of it altogether

And live here in the open

Just being

One with it all

No belief structure needed

Don’t Believe Everything You Think

Auguste-Rodin-The-Thinker-at-the-Musee-Rodin-Paris-VIIe-France_8

Thoughts are mysterious

Where do they come from

Where do they go

Are they even really ours

Or are they just passing through

Some thoughts become beliefs

A bunch together make a story

Entertaining

Unless we believe every thing we think

A trap, self limiting

Do you think you are your thoughts

Do you feel the need to defend them

Are you attached to your stories

Or can you retell them a different way

Or let go of them altogether

Do the stories you tell yourself  define who you are

Or do you know that you are the infinite space

In which they occur

Do you let them come and go as they will

Without  identifying

You are that peace undefinable

Spacious

Thoughts are your play

Not your job.

Clearing Emotions

White_clouds_upon_a_blue_sky

In our busy world we often don’t take time to feel our emotions

Depression is rampant

But depression is just the result of putting a lid on feeling

The determination not to feel anything

When emotions get stuck 

Numbness is the result

Normally feelings move

Like clouds across the sky

Feelings are just weather

Sometimes it’s sunny 

And sometimes it rains

And sometimes there’s a big storm

And then it clears

All that is necessary to move emotions

Is to sit quietly and observe them

Let go of the story and repetitive thinking

That keeps them stuck

Just feel them purely

Breathe

Allow them to be

If there is resistance

Feel the fear

Breathe

Let it be

Unless you want to hold onto the cloudy day

The mind will clear

Hint:  When you are feeling your emotions be aware of your breath.   Holding your breath keeps the energy of the          feeling from moving.

Gratitude

Gratitude leads to love 

As fear drives anger

The practice of gratitude

Lifts our vibration

As anger and fear lower it

When we feel gratitude

We feel light and free

More light becomes available

No matter how dark things see

There is always something to be grateful for

One thing appreciated

Can open a crack for the light to get in

Even when all seems lost

We can be grateful we are held

By a vast and loving presence

That permeates our being

And know despite all seeming

All will be well.

Yin and Yang

Shiva_Nataraja_Musée_Guimet_25971

Both yin and yang

Light and dark

Up and down

Round and round

You can’t have one without the other

There is no beloved without the lover

But when you are one

The two are wedded

You’re not of the world and the world is not ended

The world contains both black and white

Contain them all in your self

And remain upright

Right and wrong

Good and bad

Two sides of a coin which make a whole

To stand in the center is the goal

To ride the waves, your balance sure

Strengthen your sea legs

That’s the cure

When all around you is at sea

Stand in your truth

And let it be

 

 

Judgement or Discernment

hummingbird_wallpaper_for_android

When we judge something as good or bad

We are saying it shouldn’t be in our world

The price we pay is to shut off a part of ourselves

Closing our hearts to what is possible

A part of us becomes numb

But when we are open to all people and circumstances

Without judgement

We are in the moment and in touch

With our larger being, peaceful  and changeless

Connected to all of life

Aligned with what is

Aligned and connected

We can then tune into  discernment

Discernment  is like a humming bird

It is the inner radar which is tuned to sweetness

The hummingbird doesn’t  fly around judging the flowers

But feeling one with all that is

Allows the universal intelligence to guide her to the sweet flowers

We all have this radar inside of us

This compass

When we put judgments aside and listen

When we stop judging out of our past conditioning

And are willing to follow our inner compass

Beyond two dimensional judgments of good or bad

The  multi dimensional universal intelligence

Will guide us to the sweetness

Struggle

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

A feeling of inner or outer struggle is the result of resistance to what is.

The paradox is, that when you stop resisting anything

When you accept the inner and outer experience

You become unstuck

You are drawn into the natural flow of life
