As we enter 2017 we reflect our life and we come up with resolutions and promises…can we keep them? The world presents its challenges every day weakening or strengthening our intentions, but I am going to give you a spark of advice to keep in mind this new year: Celebrate your magnificence! ….do not look back with guilt or resentment your past actions or mistakes. We all have our shortcomings, and we all are a work in progress. Our programing reacts daily to our circumstances. So, forgive yourself, re-group and consciously notice it without judging yourself, and use it as a learning experience for growth. Contemplation and introspection without judgment is a great tool that weakens our programing. It also turns us into responsible beings, rather than victims blaming others for our misfortunes. Being more and more in de present moment which is our future and our past, it’s a necessary ingredient to find joy and fulfilment. There is only “the now” otherwise, in a blinking of an eye we are experiencing either a memory or a desire. As we intend our desire, we pause and realize how magnificent we are, and use our awareness in greatness to co-create our intention with our higher self deliberately and passionately.Being in the moment is our innocence, is our presence and our essence; It permits us to see beyond the eye. It allows us to be free, to learn, to explore, to forgive, to repair, to grow, to play, and to expand, which is the purpose of our living. Authenticity is the name of the game, authenticity doesn’t come from the ego, as the ego is incompatible with the present moment or presence.
Be yourself, embrace your magnificence! Because that is what you truly are!Have a wonderful and prosperous 2017!Continue reading "Your Ideal 2017"
Impossible! It would require an eternity. The easiest thing for us to do, is just be grateful for what we are and the gifts we enjoy in our lives. Also acknowledging that this celebration is really about Life.
Thanksgiving is a time to reflect and connect with GOD. It’s a time to humble ourselves with a grateful heart for the beautifulGRACEthat is pouring into our lives everyday. Perhaps we should change the title “Thanksgiving” to “THANKS-BEING“?
Most people are blind to see that, the challenges we are facing in politics, environment, agriculture, climate change, health, economics and every major shift in society, are but a mere reflection of the content of the individual and collective consciousness of humanity. People are focusing on mending situations in the external world, without recognizing that the decadence of values, is a result of the disintegration that exists in our civilization. Unless, we individually take responsibility, and recognize that we are the cause of our problems, there will be no positive change. Blaming others or the world is not a solution. We need to elevate the levels of consciousness of humanity; starting with one self. Without an imminent individual transformation, little can be accomplished.
The narcissism, greediness, division, lack of cooperation and violence, reflecting in our world, are a serious threat to mankind. Albert Einstein foresaw the future with his well-known and accurate quote: “You cannot solve a problem from the same consciousness that created it. You must learn to see the world anew.”
I challenge you…Look inwardly and see what you find. Awareness is the beginning of transformation!
Thanksgiving is a time to reflect and connect with Divine Source; it’s a time to humble ourselves with a grateful heart for the GRACE that is pouring into our life everyday. How about if we change the title instead of Thanksgiving for “THANKS-BEING”?
Having the privilege to be in this world and to partake of God’s amazing GRACE, is a miracle in itself.
To me today is a day of celebration; we commemorate this Thanksgiving Day, for gathering with an open and grateful heart. It is a time to reflect on our health, the fresh air we breathe every day, the food that nourished our bodies, the opportunities and choices life present to us every moment, and the list goes on and on; specially appreciating the fact that we are alive!
Loving our self, loving people, loving our work, loving life, loves the Divine; and this nurturing love turns into BEING THANKS!
Enjoy this beautiful message. it has the potential to inspire you not only this day but, your entire life.
“Do not let a moment go by which you have an opportunity to tell someone how magnificent they are. Do not let an opportunity pass in which you may offer praise. Give people the gift of self-esteem, and you will have given them a gift that many cannot find a way to give themselves. Yet when they find themselves through you, and return to their own most glorious vision and their own grandest idea of who they really are, they are lost no more, for you have returned them to themselves. Once they were lost, but now they are found.”
In my writings you will find what I call “Rosarisms”. I am allowing myself to express my messages with words and feelings as they flow from my essence. They may appear intellectually incorrect, since English is not my maternal language, but it is the language of my heart.
Mystery under the sea
I wanted to share a mysterious experience I had last Saturday afternoon. After a wonderful walk around the shore, looking at the water, clouds, sky, bright light, rocks and trees, I went into my silent space for my 12:30 PM, Saturday meditation with Shri Bhagavan
