Question regarding your identity 3-28-12

How do you identify and qualify yourself?  Big, strong, aggresive, petite, cute, sexy, intelligent, PHD, MS, BA, singer, songwriter, athlete, actor, bad-ass, beautiful, successful, mother, teacher, pilot, politician, general, etc. You see where I'm going with this. We all identify ourselves and qualify ourselves according to how well we do with our various labels. Have you ever considered looking at yourself as nothing and knowing nothing?  I'm going to consider it.  I am curious where my thinking and my actions will go by doing so.  I'll keep you posted. 

Our labels are of this world. We are not.

Story about letting your life happen instead of always planning.

This story is about afarmer whose horse broke out of its corral and ran off.  When the farmer’s neighbors heard that his horse had run off, they cajoled, “how sad it was that his only horse ran off.”  The farmer just replied with, “Maybe.” The next morning the farmer’s horse returned with a herd of horses following him. Now the farmer had many horses in his corral.  His neighbors upon hearing the news exclaimed how wonderful for him that his horse brought back so many other horses.  The farmer again responded with, “maybe.”  The farmer’s son breaking one of the new horses was thrown and broke his leg.  His neighbors were quick to feel sorry for his son breaking his leg.  The farmer’s answer was, “Maybe.”  The next day the army was riding through the villages taking all the young men with them to join their army.  They did not take the farmer’s son because his leg was broken.  “How, wonderful that your son was not taken,” the neighbors exclaimed.  Again, the farmers’ reply was the same, “Maybe.”

3-07-12 Awareness

As you get better at looking within and taking responsibility for your own process for true happiness, you will begin to see the fruits of your willingness to correct your perception. It is imperative you pay attention to every moment of your day. There are unseen forces working for your happiness and you are being presented with lessons and answers everywhere you are. This will forever connect you to the universe around you and provide you with understandings the people in your life who are not undertaking this same process will not gain. 

In order to take full advantage of this help, I find it is helpful to take moments away from the noise of the world. Turn off the radio or music while driving once in a while.  Sit outside on your proch or desk without taking your Ipod or smart phone with you.  Allow quite time just between you and those forces that are helping you.

When you sense the help and protection, you will feel happiness and love that cannot come from any other source.  This love will sustain you and bouy you up. Also, your appreciation for the sights and sounds you encounter will broaden your world.

There is peace in the wind.
