I am just starting on a journey of healing. I am reading the book “A coarse in Miracles”. My heart is open, and I am into being quiet, so that I can hear that inner voice as it guides and gives input.

What an amazing gift we have, to be able to practice forgiveness, and to choose love.

Healing oneself comes before healing humanity…

I am leaning in to this one, and accepting my self. I believe in the wisdom within.

Letting go of story, and trust that spirit will guide me…

Love is our soul purpose…

sending kind regards to all of the bmindful folks!! Hope everyone is doing well!!

“You are perfect for me, exactly the way that you are.”

A confirmation that I am the best possible me that could possibly exist brings great satisfaction deep in the soul. However as the turnover increases (balance b/t giving and taking), the bond b/t the two partners strengthens, and freedom diminished. When love is happy and fulfilled, of course, thats enough. There are people though, who value their freedom more, and they run away from this bond, which deepens with an exchange. Such individuals will hold the exchange to a minimum, which means they don’t get much but they have a lot of freedom. This freedom is empty.

This is taken from the Bert Hellinger book: Supporting love: How love works in couple relationships (2001) published by Zeig,Tucker and Theisan, page266.

I am breathless, as I solidity and make peace with my self regarding my s.o., significant other.

I accept you, and I honor you. Thank you for the love. I now release you, and I lovingly release our powerful bond. I now choose to move on. I leave you in peace.

Love is…

always a miracle… and its always fragile, like the most fragile, living thing…

we spend our entire life in search of it…

we pray for it, we read and study it, we discuss it, we analyze it, we categorize it, classify it, sing about it, write about it, cry and grieve its loss or absence…

most of us are defined by it… those hurt by it swear it off and tragically become bitter or indifferent, only to put their love and their need for love in to another passion which will not harm, injure, humiliate or abandon them.

and still, love exists! It never leaves us!

we are born with the need for love, and love is the only thing that we get to keep, to strengthen us, protect us, fortify us, nourish us, sustain us… even the hope of love will keep us alive…

Favorite Nelson Mandela quotes:

“As I walked out of the door toward my freedom I knew that If I did not leave all the anger, hatred and bitterness behind, that I would still be in prison.”

“May your choices reflect your hopes, not your fears.”

“If you want to make peace with your enemy you have to work with your enemy. Then he will become your partner.”

“I dream of an Africa which is in peace with itself.”

“For to be free is not merely to cast off ones chains but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.”

“Courageous people do not fear forgiving for the sake of peace.”

“I AM the captain of my soul.”

In a moment of clarity, its really important to know others by their dreams, which is yet another capacity of knowing their values, their aspirations, their desires, their heart, personality, temperament… these things are vastly important. Its as revealing as looking at a bank statement or reviewing someones taxes. Its a road map of consciousness…

Favorite Bob Marley quote:

If she’s amazing, she won’t be easy. If she’s easy, she won’t be amazing. If she’s worth it, you won’t give up. If you give up, you ain’t worth it.

Truth is everybody is going to hurt you. You just got to find the one who is worth suffering for.

Favorite bible verse: 2 Cor 5: 1-5

5:1 For we know that if our earthly house is torn down, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. For indeed, in this house we groan, longing to be clothed with our dwelling from heaven, inasmuch as we, having put on, will not be found naked. For indeed while we are in this tent, we groan, being burdened, because we do not want to be unclothed but to be clothed, so that what is mortal will be swallowed up by life. Now He who prepared us for this very purpose is God, who gave us the Spirit as a pledge. Therefore, being always of good courage, and knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord- for we walk but faith, not by sight- we are of good courage, I say and prefer rather to be absent from the body and to be at home with the Lord.

Act on it:

Knowledge is power, and action is results. Take massive action.
Take consistent action. Throw massive action at your problems. Being smart is not enough. We need to take consistent action and improve our results.

It is not enough to know what to do, you need to DO what you KNOW.

Without suffering, spiritual growth cannot happen. Suffering often accompanies death, but suffering is also a useful, beneficial condition of life. It is said that God loves those who experience suffering.

A person who leads a spiritual life cannot help but see that suffering brings him closer to God. Seen in this light, suffering loses its bitter side…

Real living takes place not in the domain of outward change, but in the inner domain, where changes can hardly be observed, in our spiritual life.

You should look in suffering for the seeds of your future spiritual growth, …or the bitterness of suffering will be severe.

Question whatever thoughts the mind produces otherwise you might be tempted to believe every thought.

Consciousness is not being trapped by the thoughts that the mind creates.

In order for LOVE to flourish, the light of your presence needs to be strong enough to no longer get taken over by the thinker (egoic consciousness) or the pain body and mistake them for who you are.

To know yourself as the being underneath the thinker, the stillness underneath the mental noise, the love and joy underneath the pain is freedom, salvation, enlightenment.

I am called forward by the things which unite us, as a community, and not the things that divide us.

I am called forward by LOVE, and by overcoming obstacles which create barriers to being connected.

I am strengthened and empowered by the courage to face my fears, and take down walls which separate me from my commitment to be connected to others.

I am empowered to love and to be loved…

2 Corinthians 10:4

For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds;

Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God,

And bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.

2 Corinthians Ch 11 and 12:

11: v30 If I must needs glory, I will glory in the things which concern my infirmities.

12: v7-10 …there was given to me a thorn in the flesh… For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me. And he said unto me, MY GRACE is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then I am strong.

** Equality in patience and power: To the degree that I am willing to be weak, I am equally strong. Learn that: this is when God alone enables us. Prelude to great strength is great weakness. Don’t run from rejection or from poor treatment.

John 4:7-14. Jesus and the Samaritan woman

Now Jacob’s well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied with his journey, sat on the well.

There came a woman of Samaria to draw water. Jesus said unto her, Give me water to drink.

The woman said, how is it that thou being a Jew ask drink of me, a Samaritan?
Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knew the gift of God, and who it is that said to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest asked of Him, and He would have given thee Living water.

The woman said, Sir there is nothing to draw with and the well is deep; from whence then has thou that living water? Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank there of himself, and his children and his cattle?

Jesus answered, Whosoever drinks of this water shall thirst again; But whosoever shall drink of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.

Favorite ABUNDANCE scripture Amos 9:13

“Behold the days come, saidth the Lord, that the plowman shall over take the reaper and the treader of grapes him that sowth seed; and the mountains shall drop sweet wine, and all the hills shall melt.

And I will bring again the captivity of my people Israel, and they shall build the waste cities and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards and drink the wine thereof; and they shall also make gardens and eat the fruit of them.

And, I will plant them upon their land, and they shall be no more pulled up out of their land which I have given them, said the Lord”

Favorite Martin Luther King quote:::::

“WE are now faced with the fact that tomorrow is today. We are confronted with the fierce urgency of now.

In this unfolding conundrum of life and history, there is such a thing as being too late… Over the bleached bones and jumbled residue of numerous civilizations are written the pathetic words “too late”…

NOW let us begin. Now let us rededicate ourselves to the long and bitter -but beautiful- struggle for a new world.”
