Inner Journey: VALUE THE PROCESS

“If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear … as it is, infinite.”
— William Blake

When we stop and pay attention to ourselves, we begin to see clearly the habits and patterns that have kept us asleep and confused and misled for so long. With awareness, we can choose to shift from the selfish and narrow outlook of our personality to the all-embracing generosity of our soul, simply by changing our perspective.

Change your mind and you’ll change your world.

“You watch your mind to see who you are not. I watch my mind to gain a sense of its content, which has always been my pain. As I watch it, I get a sense of its impermanence. Thoughts come and go as part of a process. I see how content dissolves into process and begin to see the patterns in the process. Realizing it isn’t MY suffering, MY pain, it becomes THE pain. I’ve gone from the tiny, the small, and the individual to the universal. I feel OUR pain. When we do, we go from fear to compassion. Fear is MY pain, compassion is THE pain.”
— Stephen Levine

The litmus test that will reveal whether or not those in your company are truly enlightened is whether or not they treat everyone else as if they, too, are enlightened.

Today’s Recipe: Egg Roll in a Bowl

You might think this was invented to avoid all of that time-consuming wrapping and messy deep-frying, but it wasn’t! It was invented by the keto people, because they can’t eat egg roll wrappers-but this guy can. So, instead of what’s really egg roll filling in a bowl, we’re doing the real thing in all of its tasty and textural glory. Garnish with more green onions if desired

Science
“When you are courting a nice girl an hour seems like a second. When you sit on a red-hot cinder a second seems like an hour. That’s relativity.”

-Albert Einstein (1879-1955)


What is time anyway but some man-made measurement? In Spirit there is no time, that’s why time can stand still, or can fly by. Our perception of time is what affects us more than time itself. Look at how some people just don’t seem to age. When we feel young, we live young, and look young!

-Lissa Coffey coffeytalk.com

Daily Tarot: Death

Though no great demands may be made of you today, you may feel lackluster and just not setting the world on fire as you like to do. Everybody has a low energy day from time to time. Perhaps you’ve been pushing it too hard for too many days in a row and just need a short break. Don’t be lazy but be extra good to yourself. Tomorrow will be brighter

Daily Good: Awakened Awareness

To turn within is to turn to that which is looking.

  • Adyashanti –

Awakened Awareness

“Awakened awareness practices focus on dis-identifying with the conceptual mind, specifically the false self or ego that we imagine ourselves to be. To call the ego a false self is not to disparage it or even judge it. It is to name it as what it is: a psychological process with which we have become overly accustomed to identifying. The false self has no enduring qualityit is neither thing, noun, nor person. It is a process that we mistake for who we are.” Adyashanti shares more in this thoughtful piece. { read more }

Inner Journey: BE OPEN TO CHANGE

“Balance is a dynamic process; it changes with the days, the seasons, the years.”
— Sherrill Sellman

How rigid are your routines? Do you exercise for 30 minutes, three times each week no matter how you feel?

Routines and structure can provide a valuable framework to bring discipline to our lives. At the same time, we are always changing and it’s wise to be sensitive to our physical, emotional and mental states so we can ensure that our activities truly meet our needs. We need to be willing to change our patterns when our practices no longer serve us.

“Only in growth, reform, and change, paradoxically enough, is true security to be found.”
— Anne Morrow Lindbergh

“The smallest change in perspective can transform a life. What tiny attitude adjustment might turn your world around?”
— Oprah

Genius
“The sum total of excellence is good sense and method. When these have passed into the instinctive readiness of habit, when the wheel revolves so rapidly that we cannot see it revolve at all, then we call the combination genius.”

-Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772-1834)


Given this explanation, we all have the potential for genius. I think a genius is someone who has worked so hard at something that they make it look easy, effortless. In Howard Gardner’s book, “Frames of Mind: The Theory of Multiple Intelligences,” he identifies seven kinds of intelligence, and he recently added an eighth. Genius can be found in any field, and it shines as a bright example for all of us.
