- Unknown

Notes/Thoughts

*How can you ‘let it be,’ today?

Let’s start by defining ‘let it be…’

Ex: He was angry and he let it be.

For more guidance, see this post:

Everyday, think as you wake up, ‘Today I am fortunate to have woken up, I am alive, I have a precious human life, I am not going to waste it. I am going to use all my energies to develop myself, to expand my heart out to others, to achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings. I am going to have kind thoughts towards others… I am going to benefit others as much as I can.’

- The Dalai Lama

How can you ‘let it be,’ today?

  • Breathe
  • Feel
  • Be true to yourself…

Focus on the fact that you’re alive and be grateful, if only, for that…

The probability of YOU coming into existence is almost non-existent.

Weekly Question: How… can you be ‘blank,’ today?

Weekly Intention: Peace on Earth

“Sometimes simply by sitting, the soul collects wisdom.”
- Unknown

Notes/Thoughts

*How can you be ‘blank,’ today?

Let’s start by defining blank…

blank
/blaNGk/
noun

1. A space [your mind] to be filled.
2. The absence of obsessive thinking.

What is blank?

‘Blank’ is the opposite of ‘obsessive thinking.’

It is ~ experiencing the moment, fully. 

peace on earth
/pēs/ôn/ərTH/
expression

1. Harmony between people and groups.
2. The absence of war.

“Peace is the only battle worth waging.”
- Albert Camus (1913 – 1960)

“If you want to make peace, you don’t talk to your friends. You talk to your enemies.”
- Moshe Dayan (Israeli, 1915 – 1981)

How can you be blank, today?

Being Blank vs. Active Thinking 

‘Active thinking’ is necessary, at times, because it relates to problem-solving. 

In other words, active thinking is problem-solving, or an examination of the pros and cons, etc. of a specific issue. 

Active thinking serves a purpose, which is finding a solution. 

*You can set a time limit, two hours, ten minutes, etc. ~ to find a solution! 

*Active thinking is finite, which means it has a beginning and an end. It is ‘analytical, or critical thinking,’ which is the only worthwhile kind of thinking…

However, it is important to note that you may not find a solution, right away, in which case, it is recommended that you be ‘blank,’ or allow a solution to come to you organically.

One suggestion is to meditate on an issue, then let it go, for now.

*If you don’t ‘have to’ make any decisions this week, then don’t…

It’s a good week to be blank!

*Ask yourself, how can I be blank, today?

Then, live from the question and see what unfolds…

Weekly Question: How… can you honor yourself, today?

Weekly Intention: Embrace it all

“Honoring everyone… contains the promise of possibility.”
– Miroslav Volf

Notes/Thoughts

*How can you honor yourself, today?

Let’s start by defining honor…

honor
/ˈänər/
verb

1. Respect, revere, and celebrate [all peoples].

Let’s continue by defining embrace it all…

embrace it all
/emˈbrās/it/ôl/
expression

1. Fully accept the past, present, and possible future!

It’s o.k.!

You’re here to have experiences.

- They may have taught you valuable lessons.

- They may have helped you in some way.

- They may have given you a sense of humor.

How can you honor yourself, today?
 
  • Write yourself a thank you note! (For whatever!)
  • Bake yourself a cake and put your name on it!
  • Take a trip!

Click here for some inspiration! http://www.pinterest.com/megunza/honor-yourself/

Ask yourself, how can I honor myself, today?

Then, live from the question and see what unfolds…

*As long as you’re hurting yourself or anyone else… :)

Read this article:
“Honoring Yourself”
Click here: http://simplestepsrealchangemagazine.com/2014/07/15/honoring-yourself/
Here’s an excerpt:

“To honor You, is to become enlightened. Enlightenment is not a goal; it is a remembering of your eternal perfection (and everyone else’s)… just as you were when you emerged from your mother’s womb.”

Read this article:
“15 Quick and Easy Ways to Honor Others…”
http://www.beliefnet.com/Inspiration/Galleries/15-Quick-and-Easy-Ways-to-Honor-Others.aspx#

Ask someone else, how can you honor yourself, today?

Celebrate your life, today!

Weekly Notes:

Just to clarify… there is no honor in killing someone.

Killing someone is, in fact, the opposite of honor…it is dishonorable, no matter the circumstances.

It is dishonorable, especially in the case of  American journalist James Foley.

He was an innocent: a victim of an anger, which had nothing to do with him and now, others are angry and the cycle is in danger of repeating itself.

Please…

Focus on the good ~ in everyone, especially in these difficult times.

We must do this…if humanity is to survive.

Other Notes:

Also, please know it’s o.k. to be angry!

Feel your feelings!

Get them out!

…in a way where you’re not hurting anyone.

For some ideas, see this post:

How do you feel, today?
Weekly Intention: Wellness
Click here: 

*The idea, in general, is to move forward, toward a place where killing someone is no longer an acceptable option…

Let’s not forget peace…

peace
/pēs/
noun

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

This is achieved through dialogue.

Only with dialogue can there be forgiveness.

forgiveness
/fər’givnəs/
noun

1. The act or process of forgiving.

Ex: They forgave the few who perpetrated the violent acts.

*Once a person forgives someone, they can have compassion for them…

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, including incidents in Israel and the Ukraine.

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

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. 

*Ya gotta do somethin’ to play!
