Patheos-Pagan: Thoughts and Prayers: You’re Doing It Wrong
JUNE 2, 2022 BY JOHN BECKETT
We hear it every time there’s a tragedy – or an atrocity. “Our thoughts and prayers are with those impacted by this terrible event.”
Pagan Playlist: SKÁLD – Vikings Chant (Full Album)
“The ultimate value of life depends upon awareness and the power of contemplation rather than upon mere survival.”
INSIGHTS happen only when we shift to a higher, more inclusive perspective. As we grow in wisdom and experience, we become less attached to the form of reality and more aware of its spiritual side – its qualities, values and meaning. As we get to know ourselves as souls, we begin to let go of the self-consciousness of the ego. This allows us to more effectively include others and work with the whole picture.
When there is more in sight, we get more insights.
Try becoming aware of those times when you focus on differences. At those times, STOP and PAY ATTENTION and IDENTIFY SIMILARITIES INSTEAD. See how all parts fit into a bigger picture. Expand your perspectives. Find common causes, motives and needs. Go to another level of thinking and problem solving. Be open to using more imagination and creativity. Shift your thinking from “either/or” to “both/and” and be prepared for more insights.
“Insight occurs when, and to the degree that, one knows oneself.”
— Andrew Schneider
“We are not what we know. We are what we are willing to learn.”

A Note from the Universe
What are you doing back in time and space?
A-ha! I see. Pretending.
Is it true that the illusions are soooooo captivating, the coffee soooooo rich, and the chocolate soooooo creamy, it’s easy to forget you’re just making it all up? And that if you don’t like what you’re experiencing you choose new thoughts, words, and baby steps to transform it?
Yeah, I already know…

“We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.”
A conscious heart: that’s something to strive for! I have heard it said that the longest distance is the distance between the head and the heart. Why is this? Why do we not trust our hearts? We “think” we know better, but do we? We feel alive, energized, and happy when we feel love and gratitude. Our treasures are all around us and within us. We have only to open up our hearts to it, to open up our awareness to it.
