“Sometimes you feel very good, feel thankful, grateful; sometimes you feel put off. But let it be a living relationship. Then prayer is true.”

~ Osho

Not Who You Are

“The most common ego identifications have to do with possessions, the work you do, social status and recognition, knowledge and education, physical appearance, special abilities, relationships, person and family history, belief systems, and often nationalistic, racial, religious, and other collective identifications. None of these is you.”

~ Eckhart Tolle

Love Is Who We Are

Love Is Who We Are

“Love isn’t just something we feel for others, it’s who we are. Though we usually think of love as a stream of emotion flowing between two people, love is more like an ocean that’s inside and all around us.

Instead of walking around with a little cup, begging for a few drops of love from others, recognize that you’re the huge ocean of love. Let go of the feeling, There’s a limit to love and I have to get mine. When you do this, you relax, and your energy expands. Rather than looking at every interaction as a potential source of love—something to fill you up and make you feel good—come to every interaction radiating love. Then you go from being a “love beggar,” to being a “love philanthropist.” ~ Marci Shimoff

Recognizing that we already ARE love completely changes the way we experience life. The world starts to look a whole lot friendlier when we aren’t starting from lack. Drop the limiting stories in your head and radiate love to the world without condition. When you swim around in what you already have you can’t help but feel appreciative and that feeling sends out a powerful signal to the rest of the world. Come on in, the water’s fine! Maybe one day we’ll all learn to swim again. In the meantime, enjoy your banana.

Let It Go And Be Here Now

It is only my opinion, but Eckhart Tolle always tells it like it is. He was one of the first authors I read that started me on my journey of awakening and, for me, is always a great source of inspiration.

In this short video, Eckhart talks about being present in relationships, be it family, friends or your significant other, and how checking your historical baggage at the gate really makes a difference in how you listen and what you hear.

Will You Remember You Are Loved

This all ended long ago

And we’ve been right here waiting

For you to remember.

 

The angels surround you

Watching and hoping

Laughing and praying

Will today be the day?

Will you remember why you came?

 

Across time and space

Through lifetimes of pain and forgiveness

Filling your heart with love

The energy already flows through you

Filling your soul

Opening your heart to right now.

 

This all ended long ago

Will you remember?

Will you remember that you are loved?
