A Tribute to my Mom, Susanna Van Zyl

This is a tribute to my mom, Sannie Van Zyl who passed away on the 30th September 2018. She will leave a big gap in our lives.

Mom, we are so sad that you left us – you will leave a big gap in our lives – we will miss you but we have all the good memories you left us with. Those of us that shared the last few days with you here on earth know that you have suffered a lot but now you are without pain and in a better place with God.

Mom, God gave you so many talents and you used them all:  I will remember you for:

  • the beautiful toys you made
  • your beautiful garden
  • your lovely singing voice

Mom, I will remember your kind nature and your Christian way of life. You were always such a positive person (sometimes too positive for your own good), always smiled and ready to give a helping hand to anyone in need.

May you rest in peace.

Our Positive and Negative Mind

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

We all experience mind switches throughout our day. Our minds can take in a lot of information every second, every minute, and hour of the day. We gather negative and positive interpretations in our minds.

A negative mind is an interpretation and a positive mind is also an interpretation.

It can both be a turbulent mind. We can switch over from one to the other very quickly.

You can be courageous the one minute then become fearful the next. Love can transform into jealousy before you know it!

The important thing to attain a positive mind is to be silent. A silent mind is a positive mind.

We can learn to go beyond our positive and negative mind; we then become silent, non-judgemental, non-analytical, and non-interpretive.

We become the silent witness when we experience inner silence. In purity of silence we feel connected to our source and to everything around us.

Attachment

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

Attachment is a form of fear, doubt, and worry, and this constricts the flow of nature’s intelligence. The more we detach and let go, the more spontaneously our desires are fulfilled.

Anything that happens in your body is a faint desire.

Desire is a pure potentiality seeking manifestation.

The fulfilment of Desire requires that we first BE, and the simply have the notion in our awareness spontaneously creates the reality.

The less you worry about the mechanics of desire, the more efficient it is.

Your Soul

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

Your soul is not inside your body.

The soul projects itself as the body and the mind. The soul finds a location in space-time, and broadcast or telecast itself through the body.

My soul is localising or expressing itself through my body.

The soul does not exist in space or time; it is beyond space and time.

The soul is transcendent. It is everywhere and nowhere at the same time. It is everywhere in general and nowhere in particular.

The life force itself is eternal; it’s unchanging; it’s all-pervading and we are that force.

We are constantly dying in order to re-create ourselves.

Stay in Tune With Your Body

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

Be aware of how you dance to the Universe.

Have awareness when you are walking.

Have awareness when you are sitting.

Have awareness when you are breathing.

This is life-centered, present-moment awareness.

Senses

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

By using your senses, you can train your bodily rhythms to move with the Universal rhythms.

Sensory experience is taking in information from the Universe “outside” your body and matches it up with the information “inside” your body: the Universe within itself.

Happiness

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

Happiness resides in the realm of spirit.

To find happiness is to find your soul.

To find your soul is to live from the source of lasting happiness.

 

Pure Love, Pure Joy

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

Only through your soul can you create and experience the world of power, freedom and grace.

In the depths of your being is the light of pure BEING, pure LOVE, and pure JOY.

This world is unbounded, infinite, eternal, joyful.
