Focus:
I am willing, despite my fear, to try something new.

Scientists have found that, when conditions are right, a single event or series of events can trigger profound change across an entire system. This is also known as the butterfly effect.

When an entrenched system begins to break down, old community beliefs give way more rapidly to new information about how to reorder the structure.

When the breakdown escalates to the point that people are prepared to leave what they are familiar with and, despite their fear, try something new, the time is ripe for a transformation.

Excerpted from: A Compassionate Revolution: From Breakdown to Transformation by Sylvia Clute.

RECOMMENDED BOOK OF THE DAY


Beyond Vengeance, Beyond Duality: A Call for a Compassionate Revolution

by Sylvia Clute.

Part social policy, part metaphysics, this is a book for all who are looking for a new model for individual and societal relationships. Sylvia Clute explores the roots of dualist thinking in the religious traditions of the world and offers the hope that if individuals–and societies–can move beyond dualistic thinking, we will create a society that is truly just and authentically caring. She unfolds her argument for applying the philosophy of non-duality to not only our criminal justice system, but to all social relationships.

Focus:
I remember that I always have a choice: peace or anger.

There are many occasions in life where our “inner peace” is challenged. Whether it is sitting in a traffic jam while late for work, or having someone cut you off dangerously on the highway, or having someone say something to you that triggers your anger…

All these situations are occasions where we are presented with a choice: peace or anger. Sometimes, we react so quickly that the angry words are out of our mouth before we have a chance to even think… Yet, we have a choice about whether to continue the anger, to prolong an argument, or to choose peace.

Choosing peace is not always easy. It involves swallowing our pride, putting our ego down a notch or two, and possibly even letting the other person feel like they “won”. Yet who truly wins? The person who is eaten up with anger and hatred, or the person who remains at peace internally?

Excerpted from: Let It Begin With Me by Marie T. Russell.

Focus: I develop a sense of good cheer and gratitude even when I have temporary difficulties.
It’s very easy for you to be wholesome and virtuous and spiritual when things are going right. But as soon as a little bit of adversity arises, then the real test begins.

You must understand that temporary hardships are part of the path. Sometimes it’s very difficult to take a foul-tasting medicine, for instance Chinese medicinal tea. You take it because you know that it will benefit you.

You must face up to this and develop this sense of good cheer and gratitude when you have temporary difficulties, knowing that they will change. They are a part of what leads all of you to ultimate bliss.

Excerpted from: Overcoming Adversities Is The Spiritual Path by Venerable Gyatrul Rinpoche.

Friday, September 7th, 2012 Focus: The first step toward inner and outer peace is accepting responsibility for my life.

Focus:The first step toward inner and outer peace is accepting responsibility for my life.
Most of us spend the bulk of our time feeling crappy about one thing or another. We find ourselves in disagreements with others, feeling indignant, wounded, or angry. We feel that our lot in life is quite different from the path that we would like to be on.

All this comes into play every time we find ourselves at odds with others, and we feel righteous about our own anger. However, very rarely do we take the time to really think about any of these feelings, contenting ourselves with the miserable state we’re in by denying that there are any other choices in life.

The simple fact of the matter is that everything in our lives — including all the crappy things — is a choice that we have made for ourselves. That is a difficult fact to face for most of us, since it’s much easier to blame random circumstances in our lives than to accept responsibility for our own actions. The first step toward inner and outer peace is accepting responsibility for our lives.

Sunday, September 2nd, 2012 Focus: How can I assist in a positive way to dissipate the negativity?


Sunday, September 2nd, 2012

 
Focus:How can I assist in a positive way to dissipate the negativity?

How do we address the negativity without co-creating and empowering it? First of all, we move out of the “holier than thou” consciousness of separation and acknowledge that part of ourselves is out of sync. Even if we would never think of picking up a gun and shooting someone, or hating another ethnic group, or leading people astray, or breaking the Universal Laws of Harmony and Divine Love, there are millions of people who do those things, and those people are part of us.

That means that you and I are effected profoundly by their thoughts, words, actions, and feelings, because we are all One. So instead of judging them, saying they are bad, disassociating ourselves from them and hating them, we need to say, “How can I help to lift up that other facet of my own consciousness and correct that behavior.”

By focusing our attention on the negative behavior, talking about it, judging it, criticizing it, and being emotionally involved with it, we are actually amplifying the very thing we are angry about. If, however, we go within the deepest recesses of our hearts and ask our God Selves how we can assist in a positive way to dissipate the negativity and correct the dysfunctional behavior of this other aspect of ourselves, we will get the answers we are seeking. Our God Selves will joyously respond, and we will be reminded of the Universal Law…”As I Am lifted up, ALL life is lifted up with me.”
