Thought For The Day: July 16, 2020 ” Remember The Lesson”

Happy Thursday,

When we are hurt by people and situations these things tend to stay with us. This causes anger, depression, self-doubt, and a myriad of other self-harmful thoughts and emotions. However, there comes a point when we need to let it go and move past it for your own mental and emotional well-being. It’s true that you may never really forget what happened. But if we learn the lesson we carry that knowledge and the “hurt” loses its impact and its hold over us. Remember that YOU have the strength to move forward!

Thought For The Day: Oct. 15, 2018 “Anger Is An Acid”

Happy Monday,

Anger can be a very cleansing emotion, however it can be a very harmful one as well. By holding onto the things that make us angry we are actually harming ourselves as well as those around us. Sometimes anger can be difficult to let go of but it’s worth the effort to do so.

Tetraktys: Life Goals – Why You Need Them in Order to Be Happy and How to Find Yours

I don’t know about you, but I’m under the impression that a lot of people around me are quite unhappy. My wife and I are far from rich and we have to face difficulties from time to time. But still, we consider ourselves happy and we are always under the impression that the future is bright for us and our future children. It doesn’t seem to be the case for most people.

Elephant Journal: 8 Ground Rules for Better Emotional Self-Care. 

As a thinking, feeling human, I’ve made a discovery.
Yes, self-care is important.
However, the self-care it seems we really need isn’t just regular exercise, drinking smoothies, and getting massages.

What I’m talking about is emotional self-care because basically, life is hard.
That’s why I’ve put together the following set of ground rules for better emotional self-care.

Patheos-Pagan: I’m an Armchair Pagan

Armchair Paganism, the type of Paganism where you don’t actually do anything within your religion, you just believe in “Pagan” things. You might learn about and read about your religion. You probably engage in discussions and debates about Paganism. But other than that, you don’t really do much with it. You don’t do rituals, you don’t praise the Gods (or equivalent), you don’t really do anything. Your religion is more about belief than about action.

Inner Journey: 

RELIEVE THE PRESSURE COOKER

“Even though you may want to move forward in your life, you may have one foot on the brakes. In order to be free, we must learn how to let go. Release the hurt. Release the fear. Refuse to entertain your old pain. The energy it takes to hang onto the past is holding you back from a new life.”
— Mary Manin Morrissey

Journaling is a great way to release and let go. To get things off your chest. Our minds are our own worst enemies. The same thoughts go round and round in the same old ways and keep us stuck.

If something bothers you, write about it. Get it out so you can see it from a different perspective. Let it out. Let it go.

Owning and healing your pressure cooker is an important step in claiming your power, building your esteem and making your stand.

“In truth, to attain to interior peace, one must be willing to pass through the contrary to peace. Such is the teaching of the Sages.”
— Swami Brahmanada

Relationships

“Union is only possible to those who are units. To be fit for relations in time, souls, whether of man or woman, must be able to do without them in the spirit.”

-Margaret Fuller, Women in the Nineteenth Century (1845)

We are each whole, complete, and perfect just as we are. None of us needs another person to be fulfilled. There is no “other half” that needs to be found. Our primary relationship is with ourselves. And we can choose to share our selves, because we know what an unlimited supply of love is available to us! We learn and grow and give and receive from our relationships – and that is beautiful.

-Lissa Coffey

Elephant Journal: 11 Ways to Raise your Vibration—and thereby, Humanity’s. 

By raising our consciousness, we rise above partisan disagreements and the need to perpetuate drama. We rise above our little selves watching or reading the news and seeing the endless, outrageous narrative for what it is: lies. By expanding our consciousness, we can lift up own vibration—and maybe, just maybe, inspire others to do the same.

MNN: Bee Saving Paper gives bees an energy boost 

There’s a quote on the homepage of the Bee Saving Paper website attributed to Charles Darwin: “The life of man would be made extremely difficult if the bee disappeared.”

He was right about that. When a Whole Foods store pulled all the food out of the produce section that relied all pollinators, 52 percent of the department’s foods were carted away to illustrate the devastating hit our food system would take if bees disappeared.

Patheos-Pagan: What It Means to be On the Side of the Gods 

Like theists of all varieties, in times of trouble we call on our Gods. We ask for Their blessings, Their inspiration, and Their protection. Most times They give it to us, in one form or another. Their presence is a source of great comfort and strength – particularly for those of us who formed and maintained on-going relationships with one or more deities before things got bad.

Inner Journey 

LEARN TO LET GO

“To attain knowledge, add things every day. To attain wisdom, remove things every day.”
— Lao Tzu

How do we take something away? As we cultivate higher awareness, we begin to see just how much we have added things that really aren’t there to our picture of reality. Our beliefs, concepts and emotions all add layers of meaning to physical reality, but that meaning exists for us only – it has no objective existence. For example, the word ‘mother’ has a complicated network of meaning for each of us.

Become aware of how your beliefs and emotions colour your perception of different events in your life. See if you can begin to step out of your fabrications to experience the truth and spaciousness of what is.

“When guilt rears its ugly head confront it, discuss it and let it go. The past is over. … Forgive yourself and move on.”
— Bernie S. Siegel

A Note from the Universe

“Reality,”  is not that you are weak, and dream of becoming strong. Poor, and dream of becoming rich. Alone, and dream of having friends. But that you’re already strong, rich, and among friends. Yet, at times, dream that you’re not.

Silly,

The Universe

Enthusiasm

“All we need to make us really happy is something to be enthusiastic about.”

-Charles Kingsley

There are so many things that we could be enthusiastic about, but do we let ourselves get worked up? Too often we hold back, we say we don’t want to “get our hopes up” or we’re afraid to jump into something when we might fall back on our behinds. But there’s a reason why we get enthusiastic about the things that we get enthusiastic about – and that’s to lead us toward happiness! Enthusiasm is a cue for us to participate, get involved, “just do it!”

-Lissa Coffey

Thought For The Day: June 6, 2018 “Changing Your Life”

Happy Wednesday,

One  question people ask themselves is “How can I change my life?”  Yes, change can be scary if we choose to see it that way. The first thing change requires is a change of heart. A change of heart requires letting go and moving on to better things. If I had $100 for everytime someone said “Letting go isn’t that simple.” I’d be rich. Of course it’s NOT SIMPLE, nothing worthwhile ever is. You work at it until you get it right. So….. do you want to be happy or stay miserable?
