The secret of peace is open to the crack between the past and the future and live in the moment we are in. ~ Coach T

How many times have you heard, ‘your thoughts create your life?”  The thoughts we focus on the most are the ones that influence our emotional states, our behaviors, actions and the results in our lives. Some thoughts are empowering and support us in creating productive, magical and fulfilling lives. Other thoughts are debilitating, creating stress and suffering, while stifling our growth, happiness and progress. Some thoughts are based in reality, other thoughts are made up in the mind and not true.

Can you identify with this quote from Mark Twain – ‘I spent half my life worrying about things that never happened.’ How many of us spend our time regretting the past or worrying about the future when the present moment just slips by with a kind of subtle or not so subtle indifference?  Why do so many of us live in fear and worry when there is a better way? What is a better way?

Next time you find yourself regretting the past or worrying about the future remember this – you can’t change the past or force the next moment to come sooner, so don’t worry about it right now. Go out and do something for yourself instead. Imagine this as the last opportunity you will have to do what you are doing. Savor the present moment. The next time you have to wait in line, use this free time as an opportunity to take notice of the world. This is a path to peace. Remember, how we spend our days in how we spend our lives.

As we pondered these questions it was revealed to me that I can be generous in how I give without being generous in how I live.

Conversely, it was revealed that a person who lives generously always gives generously. In other words, when we give generously, we can pick and choose when and how and to whom to give. We may be willing to be extremely generous in giving what we want to give where we want to give it. But with what we don’t want to give we can actually find ourselves being just as selfish and tight-fisted as the infamous Ebenezer Scrooge.

Living generously, not giving generously need to be our goal this way we won’t be like many who give generously during Christmas, but don’t live generously throughout the rest of the year. There are three characteristic of people who are living generously – which leads to greatness.

H.I.P. people are grateful that things will work themselves out, so they enjoy life’s processes now. Be H.I.P. Enjoy your life in the moment now.

 

Enjoying life’s processes is easier said than done. For most people this can be very challenging as they get caught up in the activities of life. Some circumstances and situation which are even emotionally charged can be quite difficult to release and ultimately trust that they will work out. Recently I was listening to Eckhart Tolle (one of my morning routines) and he reminded me about the “it” in our minds that causes us to be stuck in position. The “it” he spoke of was fear. He continued to explain that until we release the fear we will not be able to see the possibilities and deal with the facts of the situation.

This for me was a personal reminder as I could attest to the feeling of “stuckness” particularly in the financial life structure area. Usually until I can gain the momentum of gratitude to move forward, any out of the norm bills etc. can trigger different emotions. My financial mentor takes me through these releasing exercises that are just so phenomenal because usually the triggers are attached to some shadow belief that I accepted along my path and busting these shadows are my hobby and job.

“H.I.P. people realize that every time they turn around they are blessed. Be H.I.P. turn your life around with gratitude.”

Once a year, American families get together to enjoy turkey, pumpkin pies, parades and American football. Through movies and TV shows, loads of people around the world are aware of Thanksgiving, roughly when it takes place and that it tends to involve Americans eating a lot of turkey and something call yams. But hopefully it is much more than that for those who are living H.I.P. lives. Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to be reminded of the power of the practice of gratitude.

Gratitude is a powerful process for shifting your energy and bringing more of what you want into your life. Be grateful for what you already have and you will attract more good things. Remember this principle: whatever we focus on grows. Another way of saying this is, whatever we pay attention to grows or becomes a larger part of our experience. So if you focus on problems, you will find more problems. If you focus on successes, you find more successes. This is based on the assumption that we don’t just observe reality, but create it through our acts of observation. It is in this way that what we focus on grows, as we continue to notice more and more of it, expanding it into more of our reality.

Spiritual teacher Charles Fillmore had much to say about forgiveness.

He believed that any blockage in the life structures that we might experiences is probably because there is some place where we have not released, let go and let God – FORGIVE.

He outlined a mental treatment that he encourages should be read each day in order for it to be effective. Here it is for you to use during your sacred time –

“You may not be responsible for world peace, but you are responsible for your piece/peace.” { i.e. your piece of world peace and your own inner peace.}

While moving through the exhibition hall at the parliament of the world’s religion I came upon a huge display that had the quote above. I stopped in my tracks and had to take a picture so I could really work with the thought in the days ahead. It turned out that the display belonged to the Rotary Organization. I was awed to learn of the work they are involved in around the world. Click the link above to see more.

At some point in ourselves we must take inventory of the impact we are making in the world and even in our homes and communities. Are we playing our part in creating a world that works for everyone? Do we have a why for life that encompasses oneness and universality of all beings on planet earth? What part at you playing or can you commit to playing?

The Parliament of the world’s religion has been an amazing adventure and eye-opening experience thus far. To see, experience and be reminded of the freedom we enjoy here in the United States, to come together over 9500 people strong from all different religions and we are safe and free, to share and love each other is heartfelt.

This has been an over the top view of interfaith. I was sharing with Charles that I need to go back and visit my personal perception of interfaith and most importantly the big “WHY?”… So much of the conversation in the conference has been on having a voice on the issues of the world but most importantly “reclaiming the heart for our humanity.”

Your Soul’s Plan

Does your soul have a plan?

Absolutely! Even if your life conditions are showing unfavorable signs now I invite you to trust that something greater is emerging for you. Often times there are detours that is paved with prickly growth opportunities. These detours take us out of our comfort zones and into the next level of our evolutionary process. They are not conditions or appearances that we necessarily want to experience and some are outright ugly to bare and see.

However, what if I told you there is hope. If we allow space in our heart for trusting the process of unfoldment we will find that the universe will conspire to give us the favorable desires of our life. We will be moved from the prickly pavement to a vision filled with possibilities. Life happens and things will always be coming up for us to handle. The question is “do you have the tools and skill set to make the change?” The universe is always on your side whether you like what you are seeing or not. The universe is simply reflecting back to you, your most dominant thoughts and beliefs. The practice you will need becomes reflective listening. Moving yourself into a quiet space both externally and internally so that you can tap into the wisdom of the heart.

“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is more people who have come alive.” ~ Howard Thurman

You are here for a reason! Your soul is eternally calling you in the direction of your highest path. The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away. When you find your gift, you would have found what lights you up. And when you find what lights you up, your calling is to give it away.

We follow our calling by following what lights us up. Your light is contagious. Your inner light is craving to be shared by those around you, by the world at large – but mostly by you. When you share your unique light bit by bit, you light up lives around you. And one by one, you inspire them to light up too. It’s a chain reaction. And before long the whole world lights up. Your light is contagious.

 It is unimaginable because your experiences are different from another individual. They are feeling and seeing differently from you in each moment. An opinion or “solution giving” may just not be what’s needed.

I have been thinking about the concept of “walking in another man shoe” and what I have concluded for me is that the task is impossible. I can only stand in the gap with you whether in silence, with a hug or smile but the words often fail me. In fact the more silence that I can bring into the space will be the more opportunity for the inspiration of Spirit to flow into my heart, up to the brain and out my mouth.

You see the light I choose to share these days is the light of my presence. It may lead into “how can I support you?” but it definitely starts with my presence. To fully show up for someone else could be the act of lighting someone else’s candle. It could be just what the other person need in order to grow through the opening of their heart.
