That when I buy or “own” something, what I am paying for is the experience of it. All we can ever really have is our experiences. Makes it easier to let go of things when the experience of having them no longer feels enriching.
The idea of self-love. I have forgotten myself so much that when i hit rock bottom, I have difficulty picking myself back up.
Considering the current situation. It’s apparent that fear and hate are the easiest emotions to exploit. I have removed myself from this destructive cycle and turned off the TV and the news as entertainment sales machine, and I am as selective and as intentional as possible about where I get my information from, and try to be a force for kindness, security, and love in this life.
Purpose is the fuel for mankind.
Trust in life.
We should not easily trust our mind or emotions. As Long as intellect and feelings are connected to the ego and not to the heart of all humanity we suffer of intellect and wrong feelings.
1. I am actually pretty good at working with kids, including kids with special needs.
2. The nature of near-death experiences (NDEs) is truly mysterious, as there are accurate veridical perceptions even under anesthesia and during cardiac arrest and consistent lessons learned across cultures, yet it seems to contradict the Standard Model of physics. The nature of these phenomena is truly a great and wonderful mystery.
3. Unitarian Universalism is probably the best religion for people who don’t know what religion to follow or even whether they believe in religion at all.
4. For me, life’s meaning is to seek knowledge and wisdom, as that is what makes me feel alive.
5. Why hellish NDEs occur is a mystery, and there doesn’t seem to be any significant correlation between personality, behavior, or state of mind and the likelihood that one’s NDE will be hellish.
Due to the ever increasing and unnecessary violence Humans are demonstrating on one another and with no True leadership stepping forward to address the reasons behind it I sense ( though the insight my heart is expressing ) a Great need for the last resort to take place.
It is contained in the comforting presence beyond these words….
“Lord have mercy on us, Christ Logos have mercy on us, Lord have Mercy on Us”
and if this words are not conducive to your BE-ing-ness then another will be equally efficient ….
“Keep Peace and Love in your Heart always” ( no matter what is occurring on the outside )
Insights of strength and courage. More than I thought I had. I’m still learning to stand up for myself, to do right for myself, and I’m proud of the step I’ve taken at work to take care of me and give myself the time to work on the things I want to outside of work.
My heart is broken for the loved ones of all who were so tragically taken in Texas and Buffalo. I pray for the families and pray for the future of our country.
May I live my life, today, to the fullest. May I experience each sadness, each joy, each disappointment, each change, eah encounter with gratitude.
May I welcome my anger, frustration, disapproval, fear and despair as well as I welcome joy, happiness, delight, contentment, compassion, safety, and hope.
It’s very clear gun control isn’t anywhere on the table for a discussion. The painful current tragedy in a grocery store in Buffalo and now a grade school in TX validate the lack of gun control. Incident in Buffalo confirms the raging chant of hate that still roams the street, like those wearing white hoods in the past. I can only lift up prayerful support for the dead and bereaved.
Yes, it is “hate control” which is the True need. And going deeper into Understanding what causes Hate which is the hidden fear that fuels hate. It will take great inner courage of all humanity to address that fear, directing attention to outer objects / excuses / etc etc will never address the inner lack of harmony.
I’m learning that I need to practice self-compassion and kindness. I’m working on seeing the qualities I have but rarely identify and allowing myself to find moments to be present and meditate.
I am seeing that I am more resilient than I realized. Along with this I also see that I cannot fix everything, and that is OK, although that is hard to accept. So, trying to accept the fact that I cannot fix it all and to accept that….it is hard, but also has some relief in it….
When I hear the monastery bell, my heart goes along with the soothing sound to all who grieve. There are too many angels on the streets of heaven today.💜
Today, a day after 19 children and 2 adults were massacred in a Texas elementary school, grief, shock, and dismay, are heavy on my heart. My prayers remain with the loved ones of those who died, and the spirit of each child who will not see this new day rise.
