Monday, April 21st, 2014 Focus: Is this bringing me peace? Am I willing to let go of this?

universe
Certain situations can sweep us up and swirl us around in a whirlwind until we feel we have fallen to the ground. These may be emotional situations and I am not suggesting that you hide your emotions, as they are there to be experienced. However, see whether you could take a moment to draw back so that you can see the situation more clearly.

If you realize you are being carried away by negative thoughts, bring your awareness back to your breath and ask yourself, ‘Is this bringing me peace? Am I willing to let go of this?’

Enjoy watching how your life gets easier as you move away from the struggle within yourself. Enjoy simply asking for a change and watching that change show up.

Saturday, April 19th, 2014 Focus: Kindness is a universal language that everyone can speak.

I have yet to find anything as profound as adopting kindness as a guiding principle for making my way through this world. Maybe that’s because, unlike some systems that encourage only personal growth, this method not only changes your life . . . but it also changes the lives of others.

Perhaps the true spirit of am I being kind is to demonstrate that no matter where you are right now, or how much you’ve been through in the past, you can always begin again. I have found that many people believe it’s too late or even impossible to alter their path and make a different decision. This is simply not true.

It is my intention to give you a newfound sense of hope, while also revealing the life-changing power of kindness. Having personally lived this philosophy, I can verify its astonishing results. I’ll even go so far as to say that I’ve seen miracles happen. It doesn’t matter what religion you believe in, how old you are, what color your skin is, if you’re male or female, or what corner of the earth you live on — kindness is a universal language that everyone can speak.

Wednesday, April 16th, 2014 Focus: The more I acknowledge and embrace my fears, the less they affect my life.

nice1
The road to releasing your fears is to first acknowledge that they are there. “A fear named is a fear tamed” describes what happens when you begin to face fear. If you can name it and understand its effect on you, it becomes manageable rather than wild and unwieldy.

Begin by taking a huge piece of paper and writing down every fear you have. Big ones. Little ones. Everything. Even some that you are not sure of but which you might have. Be specific. Keep writing until you are exhausted and then find some more. As soon as you can see them listed on paper, they will begin to lose some of their hold on you.

Once you have listed your fears, take one and examine it. As you examine each fear, ask yourself if it is a fear that serves and supports you. For example, if you are afraid that you will get out of shape if you don’t exercise, then this fear-being has some value in your life. You can thank it for its presence but ask that it doesn’t judge you so harshly on those days you don’t exercise. Your fears need your love. The more you acknowledge and embrace them, the less they affect your life.

Tuesday, April 15th, 2014 Focus: Each change makes the next one easier.

Changing your lifestyle takes effort, but it isn’t impossible. Lots of people have done it — people with bigger problems and fewer resources than you.

nice1
There’s an old saying: How you do one thing is how you do everything. I would add to that: If you change how you do one thing, you change how you do everything. Each change makes the next one easier. Noble projects have a positive ripple effect in your life and in the lives of those around you.

Sometimes my daughter looks up from doing her homework and complains, “Momma, it’s so hard.” I tell her, “You can do hard.” My response comes from author Bo Lozoff, director and cofounder of the Human Kindness Foundation and its award-winning Prison Ashram Project. “Hard” isn’t the enemy. It feels good to complete something hard. “Hard” doesn’t have to stop her — or you.

Monday, April 14th, 2014 Focus: I choose to be the person I want to be.

Right Brain
Depression is a part of a whole life, not something one can separate out and label as strictly chemical, biological, or biographical. In fact, when you experience an onset of depression your life is talking to you. Some part of you is sending out an SOS: “Something is not working here!”

If you are feeling overwhelmed or stuck in a long bout of depression, you can’t afford to keep looking out into the world in the same way. Some views you hold of the world will need to change. So even in the situation where medications help, be mindful to take enough to help but not so much as to kill the messenger before you can hear and understand the message of your depression.

“We get depressed for not being the person we want to be. We get depressed when we think we have not been able to achieve the things that we want to achieve in life.” — Traleg Kyabgon, “Depression’s Truth”

Sunday, April 13th, 2014 Focus: I make a conscious choice to use my free time to do things that I truly enjoy.

Lebish and Grinnell CD
“A Long Time Comin”

http://www.lebishgrinnellmusic.com
It’s necessary to make time for the things you love. It’s good to dance, laugh, or create art — activities like these feed your soul and can be very soothing and relaxing. Notice what makes you happy and what fills you full of energy.

Running each morning just for the joy of it, watching a funny movie with a friend, tending the garden and watching things grow, petting your dog each morning when you wake up . . . when you take any kind of concrete action that is positive for you, it will make you feel better and fill you with light.

When I became more aware, I paid attention to what was uplifting to me and what was draining. I now choose to go to places and be with individuals who make me feel good. I also made a conscious choice to use my free time to do things that I truly enjoy.

Saturday, April 12th, 2014 Focus: I choose to slow down! Enjoy. Let the world pass me by just a few minutes more.

??????????????
If we could choose one word that would define the lives of modern humans, it would have to be hectic. When, in recorded history, have we been so predisposed to incessant activity? We truly are driving ourselves insane.

Sixty or seventy years is not enough time for our nerves and bones and brains to adapt to the increased activity and stress that modern living has thrust upon us. Our body/minds haven’t been prepared for the onslaught of 21st-century living. They were made for a more peaceful, contemplative existence.

That contemplative nature born of our earliest forefathers is with us still, genetically coded in our every cell, patiently waiting to be rediscovered. It is an ever-present but frail voice, straining against the ever-escalating rumble of modern madness. If we take a moment to listen, we can hear it quietly pleading, “Slow down! Enjoy. Let the world pass you by just a few minutes more.”
