We are the Sky!!!!!

’“You are the sky.
.
.
Everything else is just the weather.”

Pema Chödrön

.
.
.
My two cents: All that emotional thought, cognitive projections of worry, doubt or fear we grasp are mirages.
.
.
60,000 thoughts (the weather) cross our path each day, why entertain a negative one.

Nothing and Everything?

“Wisdom says we are nothing.
.
.
Love says we are everything.
.
.
Between these two our life flows.”

Things we think we can not do

“You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”

-Eleanor Roosevelt –
.

.
“Never, never, never, never give up.”
.
–Winston Churchill
.
.
.
.
My two cents: Two excellent attitudes needed when life brings challenges.
.
.
Accept life’s hardships as challenges.
.
.
Whether we engage life as sparingly as possible or live daringly fast, we depart this planet the same hour and minute
.
.
Oh yes, never give up, regroup, adapt and enthusiastically live each day.

Our Best

.

Life doesn’t require that we be the best,
.
only that we try our best.
.
H. Jackson Brown Jr.
.
.
.
.
My two cents: Attitude and effort are what we control.
.
.
As long as we retain our enthusiasm for life, we have a chance at happiness.
.
.
Let go of that judgment about attaining success, approval or status being connected to happiness.
.
.
Results are not a gauge of wellbeing.
.

Bravery

“The essence of bravery is being without self-deception.”
.
.
Pema Chödrön
.
.
.
.
It takes total acceptance of everything about us, the good, the not so good and the mundane to live empty in this moment.
.
.
That is a quest I work at every day.

Attitude and results

.
.
“You cannot control the results, only your actions.”
.
.
Allan Lokos
.
.
.
My two cents: Actions (effort) and attitude are under our control, results are way above our pay grade.
.
.
We erroneously judge our self worth based on results.
.
.
Self worth in daily life is linked more to effort, actions and attitude.
.
.

You do not have to win, conquer, accomplish, possess or acquire anything  to be happy right now.

.

.

We get consumed with feelings of unworthiness, craving approval then losing our center, our true perfect self.

.

.

Doubt, worry, fear, guilt and jealousy are the emotional slime we wallow in.

Sitting quietly

“The stiller you are the calmer life is.”
.
.
Rasheed Ogunlaru
.
.
.
Mindfully focus on the breath letting thoughts fade.
.
.
Try to slow your heart down by slowing the breath with the mind empty.
.
.
Navigate life with our Ego dormant for a change.
