My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion,some compassion,some humor, and some style- Maya Angelou

JOURNEY TO WHOLENESS-Reflection For Today


INSPIRATION FROM THE WEEPING WILLOW


The gentle whisper of the wind;

The glaring sun on each bent limb;

The blossoms fall like weeping tears,

Shedding sorrows through the years;

Rebirth, renewal, harvest and rest;

Life puts our souls to the test;

Weary from the trials of life;

Amazing grace endures the plight.

Our labor, toil, stress and strain;

Like the weeping willow, our strength sustains.


                                                                                       - Jean Farish (9/10/17)

                      Tribute to our brothers and sisters in Houston, Florida, and Carribean Islands


                                What are you grateful for today?

LOVE IS ACTIVE


LOVE is an active power in man; a power which breaks through the walls which separate man from his fellow men, which unite him with ohters; LOVE makes him overcome the sense of isolation and separateness; yet it permits him to be himself; to retain his integrity" -Erich Fromm

Unconditional LOVE is our natural state of being and exists in each of us. It is th simple things that make a difference... a genuine smile, authentic complement, extending a helping hand, serving wholeheartedly and being passionate about our lives and contributing for the betterment of the world.

We have become so conditioned by fear and faulty beliefs that inhibits our capacity, not only to LOVE others, but to LOVE ourselves. It takes practice to dwell in Love, and when we do we are happy and contribute to the well-being of others. Ultimately, WE FEEL GOOD!  Practice the ingredients in the recipe of love in your daily life (Patience, Kindness, Humility, Generosity, Courtesy, Good Temper, Guilessness, Unselfishness and Sincerity.) Live by these higher ideals of Love and Dwell in Love by:

SELF CARE IS GOOD TEMPER

 

What does it feel like when we have a good temper? What does it feel like when others are good-tempered toward you? Good Temper is an ingredient in the 'Recipe of Love' and essential for self care.

When we show Good Temper, we build a better relationship with ourselves and others.  Henry Drummond states, "We are incined to look upon bad temper as a very harmless weekness. We speak of it as a mere infirmity of nature, a family failing, a matter of temperament, not a thing to take into very serious account in estimating a man's character. Condemn it as one of the most destructive elements in human nature".Ill-temper is a vice of the virtuous and an unloving characteristic. It destroys relationships, communities and nations.

LOVE is not easily provoked. Be of Good Temper and you will be in control of yourself:


                                                         -Bring clarity to the situation

                                                         -Be non-reactive

                                                         -Draw on your inner essence

                                                          -Meditate on Love

SELF CARE IS HAPPINESS

"To enjoy good health, to bring true HAPPINESS to one's family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one's mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him" -Buddha




In the midst of unspeakable tragedies, it may be difficult to be happy. Why should I be happy when there are so many suffering? If we join in the vibration of sadness, we manifest more sadness... hence grief and anxiety. But, how can we find HAPPINESS? As Buddha quotes, it begins with self-discipline and self- control. Engage in self-reflection to determine if you are aligned with the vibraton of goodness and LOVE. What are you thinking? How are you feeling? What actions are you taking?

SELF-CARE IS SETTING HEALTHY BOUNDARIES

"You have to learn how to say no without feeling guilty. Setting boundaries is healthy. You need to learn to respect and take care of yourself"

                                                                                                                                                                                              -Buddha

Have you ever resigned yourself to doing something that did not feel good for you? Have you said "Yes" when in your heart you knew you should have said "No"? Do you feel guilty when you say "No"?  What feels good and right for you is good and right for others. Often we say "Yes" because we feel obligated and responsible for others, even though it may inhibit their personal growth and sense of responsibility. We may say "Yes" because we are inclined to be people pleasures and believe that our self-worth comes from others.

Uncondiitonal love is responding with the expectation of something in return..."If I do this for you, when my time comes, I expect you to respond to me the same". When others do not respond according to your expectations, this builds up anger and resentment.  When we set healthy boundaries, we teach others how to treat us and this creates a ripple effect for change, not only for you but others as well.

It is our duty to take care of our mental, physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. SELF CARE is SELF-LOVE. Stay strong and be clear about what is best for you. This takes constant awareness. Take the time to pause before you respond. Go inward and you will know what feels right. Overthinking can cause unhappiness.

Self Care is loving yourself enough to set healthy boundaries. Self Care is being True to yourself by:


                                                              -Knowing your worth

                                                              -Trusting your intuition

                                                              -Nurturing your inner child

                                                              -Developing your support system


Access my article published in Sivana East, "Why You Must Be True To Yourself" https://blog.sivanaspirit.com/be-true-to-yourself/

Why You MUST Be True To Yourself


 

"To be true to yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment" -Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

 

What do you admire about yourself? Are you doing what is best for yourself? What are the core beliefs that guide your life?

Our lives encompass all kinds of adaptations, adjustments, and accommodations on a daily basis. We can get caught up into what is expected of us, illusions of success and happiness to the point where we lose ourselves. Creating a false personality image can be exhausting and draining. Your true self, the Divine essence of who you really are, is stable and unchanging. Go within and connect to the LOVE within and Be Your True Self. These points are helpful:

 

-Know your worth

-Trust your intuition

-Nurture your inner child

-Develop a support system

 

 

Access my article published in Sivana East, "Why you MUST Be True To Yourself" https://blog.sivanaspirit.com/be-true-to-yourself/

Journal on the above points and reflect on what is highlighted in my article. It is time to Reclaim Yourself and Restore in the power that lies within. See where it takes you.

REAL HAPPINESS: HOW CAN I FIND IT?  



"Happiness is in the journey, not in the destination.Happy is he who has lofty aspirations. Happy is he who allows others to live peaceably without disturbing them. happy is he who is contributing something to make this world a better place in which to live. Happy is he whose work, whose chores, whose daily tasks are labours of Love. Happy is he who is Happy" -K. Sri Dhammananda


A universal desire by the vast majoirty of human beings is to be happy. We search for happiness in relationships, jobs, activities, and entertainment with fleeting moments of pleasure. However, the true state of happiness requires self-regulation and choice. Happiness is a higher state of being. The process of discipling the body and purifying speech and mind brings happiness.  Take note of the following words of wisdome to promote a happy and harmonious life by Rahula:


                                                       -RIGHT SPEECH and Abstention from telling lies, slander and talk that may bring hatred, disunity, and disharmony among individuals or groups of people

                                                     -RIGHT ACTION aims at promoting moral, honorable, and peaceful  conduct

                                                      -RIGHT LIVELIHOOD means that one should abstain from making one's living through a profession that brings harm to others
