Love

“This love is based on freedom, not expectation or need. It’s wings take us higher and higher towards the universal love that experiences all as one.” Advertisements

Feeling exhilarated?

LOVE this message from Abraham. “You just wanna remember, what is it all about… the only reason that you’ve come into this experience, to explore this contrast, to give birth to that new desire is because it is so much fun to move from wherever you are in the direction of that new desire. The whole point is for the exhilaration of moulding it into place. Nothing is ever wrong, it’s just on its way to feeling better.”  

Be the campfire, not the forrest fire

Originally posted on Zoe Weil:
I’m traveling a lot this month, so please enjoy this repost from 11/17/10. There’s a metaphor I like to use when talking to fellow activists. I ask them to imagine two fires. The first is a campfire in an opening in the woods. The fire is warm and bright and draws people toward it. They are eager to find a place around the fire, and their beautiful faces glow in the reflected light. They feel good. There is nowhere they’d rather be. The second is a forest fire. It blazes hot and out of control, everyone – people and animals alike – flees. Each of us has a fire inside of us. It is the fire of our passions and our beliefs, and all of us who are activists know it well. It is the fire that spurs us to learn about what is happening on our planet — to people, animals, and the environment — and it is the fire that spurs us to action to solve the crises…

Super delicious Smoothie

I’ve been having smoothies a lot lately for breakfast, they’re especially nice and light on our hot summer mornings here in Durbs. Everyday I try something a little different depending on what I have. Today’s was especially delicious, so I thought I’d share. Ok here’s what you need: – 2/3 chunks frozen banana (pre-peeled, chopped & frozen) – small handful frozen blackberries – 3 table spoons of organic greek-style yoghurt – 1 tablespoon of organic coconut oil – sprinkle of goji berries – handful of pecan nuts – cinnamon (mmm..very good for you) – dash of pure organic cranberry concentrate Place all in a blender, add a little water, mix and voila! Enjoy the yummy goodness of this super-fruit smoothie :) I’ve tried adding raw spirulina powder in the mix but I find it ruins the taste a bit for me, so I usually just down it separate with other greens. Fresh ground flax-seed is also great to add to smoothies – lots of omegas & fibre. If you can get a hold of real …

My Inentions for 2013 & beyond

Another year is upon us and I have high hopes for this one.  I can just feel it’s going to be a great year… a year of change, adventure and excitement. Now is a good time to reflect upon the previous year and so below are my 2012 Intentions. I prefer to set intentions rather than resolutions because everything starts with an intention. As Deepak Chopra explains, “Intention is the starting point of every spiritual path. It is the force that fulfills all of our needs, whether for money, relationships, spiritual awakening, or love. Intention generates all the activities in the universe. Everything that we can see – and even the things we cannot – are an expression of intention’s infinite organizing power.” I most certainly did not achieve all my intentions from last year :(  I didn’t do the 5 Tibetans daily or dance enough (actually hardly at all!). But I do feel like I explored the others… and I think that’s the whole point of intentions, the result/desire unfolds naturally as it should according to universal law – sometimes …

The Fool

I absolutely love Osho’s Zen Tarot. It’s always spot on for me. Today I selected The Fool. “Be a fool in the Taoist sense, in the Zen sense. Don´t try to create a wall of knowledge around you. Whatsoever experience comes to you, let it happen, and then go on dropping it. Go on cleaning your mind continuously; go on dying to the past so you remain in the present, herenow, as if just born, just a babe. In the beginning it is going to be very difficult. The world will start taking advantage of you…let them. They are poor fellows. Even if you are cheated and deceived and robbed, let it happen, because that which is really yours cannot be robbed from you, that which is really yours nobody can steal from you. And each time you don´t allow situations to corrupt you, that opportunity will become an integration inside. Your soul will become more crystallized. Adventures await him in the river of life The card indicates that if you trust your intuition right …

I love being an Aries…

…especially today! This is just the message I needed to hear, thank you Jonathan Cainer. Aries Horoscope: 3 January 2013 “Are you wrestling with a resolution? We need to be clear. What matters, this year, is not what you give up but what you take up. If you want to move something bad out of your life, bring something good into it. The good will help to push away the bad – or keep you further away from it! Focus on what is positive, constructive, inspiring and potentially life-changing in the nicest possible way. Then the other changes that need to be made will begin to happen naturally and automatically, as a side-effect of this.”

Feel Good Regardless

A major lesson I’ve had to learn is that you really can’t change people. Even though you really want to help them and hate to see them in pain and deep down you ‘know’ that they’d be happier if they did such and such. But who are we to make this decision? And who are we to rob them of their experience? After all isn’t that what we’ve come here to do… live, learn, grow and hopefully evolve to a higher consciousness. Sometimes I feel like I get caught up in stuff that’s just really not worth getting caught up over… other people’s stuff that I can’t control. I want to reach a place of not needing the condition to change to feel good: “I want to enjoy the benefit of unconditional love. I want the benefit of not needing a condition to change at all. I want the benefit of my focus to be so good that I can focus so clearly, so precisely, so deliberately, that I can feel good, only good about this …
