Life is good!

When such as I cast out remorse

So great a sweetness flows into the breast

We must laugh and we must sing,

We are blest by everything,

Everything we look upon is blest. William Butler Yeats

It’s mostly up to us, how we see our selves, our surroundings and life itself. As we see, so we project, as we project, our life is created.

You are the architect of you life, don’t take this responsibility too lightly. And never blame others or circumstances. Ask yourself first, how should I react, what can I do…?

When we see life as holy, ourselves as holy, we bless everything as life itself blesses us!! Yay!!

Live like a butterfly…

Have a heart that never hardens, and a temper that never tires, and a touch that never hurts.Charles Dickens

It comes back to the heart. Your heart first, then someone else’s and then to the heart of the matter! Gentleness touches the very core.

If your heart is gentle, your temper is not likely to flare. Your approach to life will be akin to that of a butterfly as it gently flies through the air to set down on a beautiful flower.

Can we be like a bright butterfly that is gentleness personified? Then the gentleness in your heart will touch the heart of another. From one heart to another will the benign virus spread!

A loving thought…

If instead of a gem, or even a flower, we should cast the gift of a loving thought into the heart of a friend, that would be giving as the angels give.George MacDonald

Everyday living slowly turns our thoughts and actions, harsh and selfish. That’s if we don’t take care of our garden within, water it, tend it and nourish it.

The way to nourish our inner life is by:

  1. Becoming aware of our thoughts as much as possible.
  2. Being aware of what we put into our minds, like the stuff we read and what we think.
  3. Allowing peace and love to sink in via meditation, prayer and Now time.
  4. And by consciously giving loving thoughts and doing acts of love/service to others.

It’s all about cultivating loving awareness. Namaste Now!

Lasting happiness…

Being sensitive and responsive to human need creates genuine and lasting happiness, while such kindly attitudes safeguard the soul from the destructive influences of anger, hate, and suspicion.  – The Urantia Papers (140:5.16)

Ok, so ‘genuine and lasting’ happiness can only be found when we are aware of and service other people’s needs! Would you agree?

Taking care of ourselves, our needs, finding our own life meaning etc., is all fine and dandy, but according to this quote long term and real happiness is found only in serving others

Reminds me of an oft quoted phrase: ‘Living for a cause greater than yourself’

What is that cause you were meant to serve?

Only through love

Life in abundance comes only through great love. Elbert Hubbard 

How filled with love is your life? How about your pursuits, desires and even mundane activities?

Imagine how much bigger any relationship is when it’s full of love. How much do we look forward to our day when our job is truly fulfilling? Which can only happen if we love our job. What if you were in love with life itself? How would that make your day, week or whole year?

Here’s the problem though, you can’t easily love external objects and beings if you’re not comfortable in your own skin, if you don’t appreciate your own self, if you don’t love yourself.

Love is the currency of the universe, it’s the underlying reality of it all. Live in love and you’ve figured out one of life’s deepest mysteries!

Love it up!
