Can You?

Can you coax your mind from its wandering and keep to the original oneness?

Can you cleanse your inner vision until you see nothing but the light?

Can you love people and lead them without imposing your will?

Can you deal with the most vital matters by letting events take their course?

Can you step back from you own mind and thus understand all things?

Giving birth and nourishing, having without possessing, acting with no expectations, leading and not trying to control: this is the supreme virtue.

From the Tao Te Ching as translated by Stephen Mitchell

I Promise Myself.. by Christian D. Larson

To be so strong that nothing can disturb my peace of mind.

To talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person I meet.

To make all my friends feel that there is something worthwhile in them.

To look at the sunny side of everything and make my optimism come true.

To think only of the best, to work only for the best and to expect only the best.

To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as I am about my own.

To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.

To wear a cheerful expression at all times and give a smile to every living creature I meet.

To give so much time to improving myself that I have no time to criticize others.

To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

To think well of myself and to proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud words, but in great deeds.

To live in the faith that the whole world is on my side, so long as I am true to the best that is in me.

Judgement!

     
“We can never judge the lives of others, because each person knows only their own pain and renunciation. It’s one thing to feel that you are on the right path, but it’s another to think that yours is the only path.”

How many times have you been told by people who think they are trying to help you, ” if you only did some exercise you would feel better” or “if you only ate healthy like I do you will be fine” etc etc. Having a chronic health condition, especially one that involves pain and debilitating fatigue is hard enough, but when you feel judged because others think they know what is best for you, this simply shows their ignorance, not their want to help you, not their need to support you, simply their lack of compassion and understanding. These people seem to like to find fault in what you’re doing like there is a reward for it.

When I finally worked out for myself that I had PCOS, I decided I had to figure out what would heal MY body to achieve a pregnancy, not what the Doctors thought would help, ie simply lose weight and you can read what I did to do that in my PCOS story part 2. as it is not about losing weight but how you heal yourself.

Once more I am faced with some health issues that I again have diagnosed myself, and now I find the Drs even less understanding as I just turned 49 and they think I will soon enter menopause so, meh who cares! However my PCOS is slowing killing me and once again I have to go within to heal myself. I strongly believe its not about losing weight or eating just raw vegetables that heals us, I believe it is a mind, body and soul project.
So….

I’m going on a journey!

That’s right I am off on a journey, to a really exciting place, where spiritual enlightenment will be deepened and childhood issues will be healed. It’s a wonderful warm place, where I feel comfortable every time I visit and the host makes me feel loved unconditionally.

I am going to visit ME.

Yes that’s right I’m sure some of you have been there before, it’s a magical place and I can’t wait to go. It’s been calling me for a while now, and of course I kept putting it off, waiting till I had enough time or finished my last reading, but my body grew tired and developed symptoms that I could no longer put off. I believe there is only one way to heal my body and that is by listening to it. Doctors wanted to give me medications but I know my body does not like that and just as I healed myself once before I will again, so I am finally going….

And when I return from ME I hope to be able to share my experience with YOU! 

Thank you to my wonderful support team Bill, Jean and my soul sister Steph and of course my amazing husband who has shown me that he loves me whether I am fat, thin, sick or well!

That is what true love is about, not judgement!

Lots of love always

The Power of Words

I really love this wonderful short film illustrating the power your words have on creating your reality and how changing them can truly change your life.

Our Deepest Fear

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” Marianne Williamson

I love this saying and I was  quite surprised that it was written for Nelson Mandela by Marianne Williamson, It speaks volumes about how we have so much power inside us to be what ever we want to be but that we scare ourselves let the fear stop us. And if we just believe we can be what ever we want to be, then we can and will.  And have every right to be!

 

That’s my thought on it anyway 🙂
