All life is an experiment – Ralp Waldo Emerson

“Do not be too timid and squeamish about your actions.

All life is an experiment.

The more experiments you make the better.

What if they are a little coarse and you may get your coat soiled or torn?

What if you do fail, and get fairly rolled in the dirt once or twice?

Up again, you shall never be so afraid of a tumble”

As a Man Thinketh by James Allen

Excerpt from Part 6 – Visions and Ideals

“And you, too, youthful reader,

will realize the Vision (not the idle wish) of your heart,

be it base or beautiful, or a mixture of both,

for you will always gravitate toward that which you secretly most love.

Into your hands will be placed the exact results of your own thoughts;

you will receive that which you earn; no more, no less.

Whatever your present environment may be, you will fall, remain,

or rise with your thoughts, your Vision, your Ideal.

James Allen

Intuition

 (Taken from the book: Power, Freedom and Grace by Deepak Chopra)

I love the way Deepak Chopra describes the meaning of Intuition in his book Power, Freedom and Grace.

He says that intuition is not a thought. It is a non-local cosmic field of information that whispers to you in the silence between your thoughts. Listen to the inner intelligence of your body. It is the ultimate and supreme genius.

You are accessing information from the universe when you listen to your intuition.

Intuition is the heightened sense of awareness that comes from familiarity with the information fields in your own body. This information is encoded holographically in every cell of your body.

Access this information and you will become more intuitive.

Meditation

I am a very busy person and find it hard to meditate. I know it has many good benefits for me. but the moment I start meditating all sorts of unnecessary stuff enters my mind diverting me from my meditation routine. I cannot become still for long enough.

My new year’s resolution is to try and meditate if only for 5 minutes at a time, then longer, and even longer until I can reach my goal of about 1 hour. To meditate is good for our body and soul and here are some benefits:

  • it improves our physical and emotional health
  • it helps lower our blood pressure
  • we have greater resistance to disease
  • we are less stressful to challenging situations
  • we have better work performance
  • we have greater self-esteem
  • we have more nourishing relationships

Let us all try and make meditation part of our daily routine, like eating and sleeping. I am going to try my best.

Namaste.

Conscious Awareness

When you have a conscious awareness of your soul, you experience everything as a miracle.

You feel happy.

Your life begins to transform.

You see the connection between your inner world and your outer world.

Every event in your life is being orchestrated by the entire Universe.

I Am, I Exist

The Universe is thinking

It’s creative,

It imagines

I am creative because the Universe is creative

I am conscious because the Universe is conscious

I think because the Universe thinks

I Am, I Exist.

Inner Peace by Joshua Fraser

The wind whistles past my ears.
Closing my eyes, I lose all my fears.
The waves crash into the rocks.
Out here there is no time on my clock.

The serenity I feel here just soothes my mind.
A peaceful day so hard to find.
The breeze just calms my soul.
Helps me think about what is my life’s goal.

I then look out over the ocean,
And it feels like my life has lost its commotion.
The sun sets down over the clouds.
But the orange glow around makes me proud.

As the night draws near.
I feel like where I need to be is here.
The soothing nature this afternoon brings
Just feels like such a beautiful thing.

I sit and wonder where life will go,
But right now all I want is for time to slow.
To enjoy this moment and feel free,
To clear my mind and find some glee.

It’s days like these I truly treasure.
Amazing nights and beautiful weather.
It may not seem like much.
But it’s moments like these I want to clutch.

For once I feel like life is bliss.
So many hard days in which my happiness was missed.
I could get lost listening to the waves.
Listening to the birds and watching how the clouds behave.

I could close my eyes and fade into the night.
The tranquility I feel helps me win the fight.
As the waves keep crashing into the rocks,
I feel the happiness in my heart become unlocked.

The day is drawing to a close.
The peacefulness I feel right now I’ll only know.
Right now my mind is finally clear.
It’s time to go as the night draws near.

House of Light by Mary Oliver

Still, what I want in my life
is to be willing
to be dazzled
to cast aside the weight of facts

and maybe even
to float a little
above this difficult world.
I want to believe I am looking

into the white fire of a great mystery.
I want to believe that the imperfections are nothing
that the light is everything that it is more than the sum
of each flawed blossom rising and falling. And I do.
