A BOWL FALLEN FROM THE ROOF ::::Rumi!

“You that give new life to this planet,
you that transcend logic, come. I am only
an arrow. Fill your bow with me and let fly.
*
*
*
Because of this love for you
my bowl has fallen from the roof.
Put down a ladder and collect the pieces,
please.
*
*
People ask, But which roof is your roof?
I answer, Wherever the soul came from
and wherever it goes at night, my roof
is in that direction.
*
*
From wherever spring arrives to heal the
ground,
from wherever searching rises in a human
being.
*
.
The looking itself is a trace
of what we are looking for.
*
*
But we have been more like the man
who sits on his donkey
and asks the donkey where to go.
*
.
Be quiet now and wait.
It may be that the ocean one,
the one we desire so to move into and become,
desires us out here on land a little longer,
going our sundry roads to the shore.”

A new Discovery of mine? Some things are “Contagious”

Through intention and action from my spiritual practice, that is my increased giving, I have found that giving is highly contagious.
*
*
It rubs off easily with other kindred souls.
*
*
My giving has brought awareness to those who come into contact with me.
*
*
My small gifts have encouraged others to find ways to give themselves.
*
*
In turn, this has brought more gratitude to me, increasing my happiness somehow.
*
*
My ego recedes more and more as I give.
*
*
Why not give and see your environment adapt.

Who am I, has no subject, just an avatar we grasp for identity.
*
*
*
The more we can ignore the ego, the happier life will be, period.
*
*
*
That means letting go of doubt, worry and unworthiness.
*
*
*

Think less, be present, let go, smile.

Look in the mirror and repeat every morning, noon and night, I deeply and completely love and cherish all of me, I strive to be in this moment with all my energy.
*
*
*
Smile back at that person in the mirror, on the path, living as fully as possible in this moment, letting go and taking action.
*
*
*
That is all that exists.
*
*
*
Smile again and know life is good, acceptance of all that is right now, has changed you and your life.
*
*
*
Smile!
*
*
*
*

This leads to acceptance and surrender!

From Buddhas Brain;
*
“Believing that you need to be special in order to deserve love and support sets a really high bar that takes much effort and strain to clear—day after day after day.
*
*
And it sets you up for self-criticism and feelings of inadequacy and worthlessness if you don’t get the recognition you crave.
*
*
Instead, try wishing yourself well in these ways:
*
*
May I be loved without being special.
*
*
May I contribute without being special.
*
*
Consider renouncing specialness—including being important and admired.
*
*
Renunciation is the antithesis of clinging, and thus a radical path to happiness.
*
*
Say phrases like these in your mind, and notice what they feel like: I give up being important. I renounce seeking approval.
*
*
Feel the peace in this surrender.
*
*
Love the person you are, much as you would care about any person dear to you.
*
*
But don’t love the self or any other mere mind-object.”
*
*
*

Gratitude is so much more than giving thanks for what we have.

“Falling from a Star”

*
*
*
Gratitude brought humility and acceptance into my life.
*
*
Giving without concern for reward, increased my gratitude and lightened the load (I thought) I was shouldering.
*
*
Being exposed to others plight in this loving kindness space, changed me, melted the harsh judgments about myself.
*
*
Giving filled my chalice with gratitude.
*
*
Giving melted my unworthiness and opened my soul to chasing happy more fervently.
*
*
Please come join me on this healing journey.
*
*
*
*

Now is the only moment where healing and happiness are joined as twins.

*
*
*
The path, the road for healing, is the same, both have barriers, judgments, doubts, worry and unworthiness.
*
*
*
Both paths take daily action, discipline and courage.
