Weekly Question: How… can you connect, today?

Weekly Intention: Connectedness

Connect today…

“I define connection as the energy that exists between people ~ when they feel seen, heard and valued; when they can give and receive without judgement; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship.” – Dr. Brené Brown, PhD. http://brenebrown.com/

Notes/Thoughts

*How can you connect, today?

Let’s define connect, first…

connect
/kəˈnekt/
verb

1. To act [take action] with the intention of strengthening a relationship.

Ex: He wrote him an honest, heartfelt letter.
Ex: She emailed, called, etc. an old friend whom she’d been thinking about…
Ex: She didn’t have anyone in her life whom she wished to contact, so she met someone new.
Ex: He connected with someone on a psychic level! He sent him a telepathic message! :D

Let’s continue by defining connectedness…

connectedness
/kəˈnektnes/
noun

1. In mathematics, it means “all one piece!”

Ex: She experienced herself as everything.
We are all connected on a metaphysical level!
How can you connect, today?

Then… live from the question and see what unfolds!

Weekly Notes

It may be difficult to connect if you’ve been hurt.

This is very normal.

If this is the case, you may need to forgive someone.

In order to forgive someone, you may need to acknowledge how you’ve been hurt ~ to whomever you think is responsible. 

Without anger…

This simple, vulnerable act of saying, “I was hurt,” will release pain.

Other notes:

Connection with everything and anyone is more easily experienced while you’re dreaming.

So…before you go to sleep, you can ask for a ‘connection,’ or rather you can ask to connect with someone – while you’re dreaming.

Weekly Question: How… can you experience peace, today?

Weekly Intention: Peace

Create peace…

“Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding.”
– Albert Einstein

Notes/Thoughts

*How can you experience peace, today?

Let’s define peace, first…

peace
/pēs/
noun

1. Free from hatred: understanding, acceptance, forgiveness, tranquility, harmony, calm.

How can you experience peace, today?

How do you forgive someone?

Let’s start by defining forgiveness…

for·give·ness
/fər’givnəs/
noun

1. The act or process of forgiving. 

Ex: She forgave him for killing her son.

Once a person forgives someone [or something], they can have compassion.

com·pas·sion
/kəm’paSHən/
noun

1. Concern for another person’s sufferings; concern for their well being.

I would add, irregardless of whatever’s happened.

And only with forgiveness and honesty ~ can there be compassion.

How do you forgive someone?

It might be easier if you simply say to yourself “they were ~ or are susceptible to evil.”

Perhaps it was not them, their true soul or spirit, who acted out, etc.

Also, remember that people do not intentionally ‘set out’ to hurt you, in most cases.

And even if they do, it’s not about you. It’s about their ego, the situation…their own feelings of desperation, insecurity, and inadequacy.

They are simply doing what they’re doing, in any given moment and whatever they’re doing has nothing to do with YOU; even if it’s an act of violence. 

People are simply doing what they’re doing.

Let me say it again…

It isn’t personal.

Then, live from the question and see what unfolds…

*As long as you’re not hurting yourself or anyone else. :)

Notes:

Sometimes, things can be painfully difficult to accept. 

These “things” may cause you great distress.

What are these things? 

Write them down…

Remember…

Other Notes:

Once a person forgives, they can have compassion.

Even if compassion doesn’t seem necessary, find a way to experience it – for your own sake.

If someone, or some country, has done something foolish, for instance, what is the highest response?  

In other words, how can you be the highest version of yourself?

*Imagine how inspiring it could be – if those who were less fortunate could have compassion for those who were more fortunate? 

How crazy? Right?

Imagine the extraordinary nature of the scenario…

Having compassion for those seemingly ‘more fortunate’ may be incredible difficult, or it may be incredibly simple.

It’s simply your choice.

Ask yourself…how can I be present, today?
Then live from the question and see what unfolds…

*As long as you’re not hurtin’ yourself or anyone else… :)

Weekly Notes:

Mercury’s in retrograde!

Staying present this week has probably been difficult…

It’s out of retrograde tomorrow. 6/18/2014

Hang in there!

If you think of the present moment as THE MOMENT, the spark, the life force, the everything…then it will make sense to focus completely on whatever you’re doing NOW.

So…focus completely on whatever decide to do.

Make a decision and commit!

The next moment isn’t guaranteed.

If you’re still having trouble, set a deliciously difficult goal, then force yourself to complete it.

If you complete it, you’ll probably find it was only possible because you decided to be present!

Other Notes:

Accept your thoughts, today.

It’s o.k.

You’re mind wants to help you, even if it’s a nuisance.

Create a plan, to quiet the mind...

See this post: How can you move forward, today? – “The Yoga Book” – Weekly Intention: Acceptance

*Focusing on the question and intention, makes it easier for others to focus on them! And the more you focus on them, the easier it’ll be for others and subsequently the easier it’ll be for you!

Imagine what could happened if we all focused on the same intention this week!
*The Yoga Book blog is intended to inspire and influence the collective consciousness!

The Happy & Successful Game!

Rules: 

If you notice you’re in the moment, you’re present, you’re paying attention to every detail, savoring the moment, you win. You are a success!

If you notice you’re not in the moment, you’re not present, you’re not paying attention to every detail, not savoring the moment, you loose. 

The End.
