MEDITATION WRITING. I would like you to try "meditation writing". Here is how to do it: Play an audio book of #WayneDwyer , #MarianneWilliamson#DeepakChopra , #EckhartTolle or any other enlightened, liberated sage you choose. Begin the #audiobook and randomly write keywords onto paper as you go with the flow of the authors words. I like to use laser jet white paper, black ink pens and a clipboard because the big space is great to jot and doodle on. Listen freely to the spiritual guidance and write whatever you wish... This ritual usually opens me up and allows me to grow in deeper, broader understanding of the universal teachings. It is a richer experience than just listening to the book or just reading the book. It's as if you're cowriting the books with the authors themselves. Give it a try! 💕🙏😇 Namaste
“Sometimes letting things go is an act of far greater power than defending or hanging on.”
According to the five elements we are in full swing of metal season (autumn). Metal is represented by the pendulum of emotions between inspiration and grief. The energy of the season is downward and the organs represented are the lungs and large intestine.
Getting stuck in the pendulum of this seasons emotions means:
—holding on to things that no longer serve us
—not valuing things that add richness to our lives —or feeling a sense of sterility/ambivalence towards everything
When we identify the root we can unlock the entire pattern. Knowing when to let go is the start ❤️😊
t seems that most “love relationships” become love/hate relationships before long. Love can then turn into savage attack, feelings of hostility, or complete withdrawal of affection at the flick of a switch. This is considered normal.
If in your relationships you experience both “love” and the opposite of love — attack, emotional violence, and so on — then it is likely that you are confusing ego attachment and addictive clinging with love. You cannot love your partner one moment and attack him or her the next. True love has no opposite. If your “love” has an opposite, then it is not love but a strong ego-need for a more complete and deeper sense of self, a need that the other person temporarily meets. It is the ego’s substitute for salvation, and for a short time it almost does feel like salvation.
But there comes a point when your partner behaves in ways that fail to meet your needs, or rather those of your ego. The feelings of fear, pain, and lack that are an intrinsic part of egoic consciousness but had been covered up by the “love relationship” now resurface.
Just as with every other addiction, you are on a high when the drug is available, but invariably there comes a time when the drug no longer works for you.
When those painful feelings reappear, you feel them even more strongly than before, and what is more, you now perceive your partner as the cause of those feelings. This means that you project them outward and attack the other with all the savage violence that is part of your pain.
Love has no true opposite! As a birthday gift to me or wish have you... I wish you all the deepest love you can experience in this life beyond pain of ego and anything else. I have hurt more than I have loved.. going into my 49th year I am@still wanting to change this... love deeply. #relationshipreinvented#eckharttolle
Just say “YES” to the present moment. Think of this in terms of resonance. If we “prolong” gratitude for the future, we are externalizing our own happiness and putting it in the “future.” This causes inner resistance and BLOCKS us from experiencing what we want. Here is another idea that may blow your mind. Get ready. What if what you want is already within arms reach, it is simply that we cannot “perceive” of it due to our focus, momentum, etc. This would mean the key is NOT trying to attract something from over there to over here... rather is it to make what is currently not perceivable, perceivable. We make that shift when we resonate with the reality we want and we do that by saying YES to the present moment. Don’t resist “what is...”Instead allow yourself to feel the emotions that come up and then be grateful that you can shift your focus from trying to “do” more or have “more...” into instead being here more. Gratitude is only felt in the present moment and when you are grateful for what you have, you find even more of it come into your life⚡️⚡️#resonance
Remembering how to love my life daily... 😅 " FORGET ABOUT YOUR LIFE SITUATION + pay attention to your life. Your life situation exists in time. Your life is now. Your life situation is mind-stuff. Your life is real." #TOLD ~Eckhart Tolle #reminders#eckharttolle 💚 ... Shadows are also real. Dark may be, but not scary! #knowthyself 🎆🔥
Give up defining yourself- to yourself and others
You won’t die - You will come to life
Don’t be concerned with how others define you
When they define you, they are limiting themselves, so it’s their problem
Whenever you interact with people, dont be there as a function or a role, be there as a field of Presence
You can not be more than you are because underneath your physical body and your psychological form, you are one with life itself
You are and always will be inferior to some and superior to others
In essence you are neither inferior or superior to anyone. True self-esteem and true humility arise out of that realisation. In the eyes of the ego, self-esteem and humility are contradictory. In truth they are one and the same •
Little chapter on Ego from “A New Earth, awakening to Your life’s Purpose”
By Eckhart Tolle •
Gibt es einen Unterschied zwischen Glück und innerem Frieden?
Ja. Glück hängt von Bedingungen ab,
die als positiv wahrgenommen werden;
innerer Frieden nicht.
Wenn man nicht ständig von einem Gedanken zum anderen springt um über Dinge aus der Vergangenheit nachzudenken, die eh nicht mehr zu ändern sind, oder im Gegenteil, ständig über die Zukunft spekulieren. Bekommen wir dann inneren Frieden?
Nicht ständig im Leiden zu leben, oder sich darüber aufzuregen, was andere Menschen gesagt oder getan haben und ständig Energie, Aufmerksamkeit und Zeit, an unwichtige Gedanken zu verschwenden, die immer wieder neu aufkommen, bekommen wir dann unseren inneren Frieden?
Es ist nicht einfach, seine innere Stimme auszuschalten und Frieden mit sich zu schließen, aber die Arbeit an der achtsamen Aufmerksamkeit des Moments, lässt uns verweilen und zu uns zurückkommen und dann kann Frieden entstehen und Zufriedenheit.
🤙🏼Step away from the victim mentality and thinking that the world is against you. Instead, get your power back by being a student of life even when the lesson is hard to swallow (RP by: live_like_a_butterfly_111)
Everything that you "think" you need is already within you. Such as? Love, peace, kindness, understanding, happiness, forgiveness, prosperity, serenity, perfect health etc. etc. There is nothing outside of you (in the world) that you don't already have. Look deep within and you'll find all the desires of your heart! We must learn to embrace silence and alone time to discover who and what we really are. We were all created without need. Made in the image and likeness!!! Just go within and silence the mind. You are already all knowing, you just have to remember!
📷 @sarahdayarts | Give yourself permission to let everything be as it is. To let yourself be as you are, as you exist in this moment. “When people say "Let it go," what they really mean is "Get over it," and that's not a helpful thing to say. It's not a matter of letting go - you would if you could. Instead of "Let it go," we should probably say "Let it be"; this recognizes that the mind won't let go and the problem may not go away, and it allows you to form a healthier relationship with what's bothering you.” - Jon Kabat-Zinn | 🔄@recoveryspirit

Day 3️⃣ of #AerialYogaChakras focuses on the #solarplexus ! I am doing a side plank variation to fire up my core! 🔥
English: Solar Plexus
Color: Yellow 💛
Representation: Motivation, Determination, Discipline
Yoga Poses: Core Building Poses
Our chakras are like a spiritual nervous system. We work with the seven (7) main chakras which run alongside the spine. They start at the perineum (the space between the genitals and anus), and then run up in a straight line to the top of the head. The top most chakra is in fact just outside of the body above the top of the head. Each chakra is said to vibrate at a different frequency and is associated with a particular color, very handy for chakra meditations where you can visualize the colors. They are also each associated with certain emotions and organs and their function.
Day 1 - Muladhara, the Root Chakra
Day 2 - Svadhishthana, the Sacral Chakra
Day 3 - Manipura, the Solar Plexus Chakra
Day 4 - Anahata, the Heart Chakra
Day 5 - Vishuddha, the Throat Chakra
Day 6 - Ajna, the 3rd Eye Chakra
Day 7 - Sahasrara, the Crown Chakra
Many people who are going through the early stages of the awakening process are no longer certain what their outer purpose is. What drives the world no longer drives them. Seeing the madness of our civilisation so clearly, they feel somewhat alienated from the culture around them. Some feel that they inhabit a no-man's-land between two worlds. They are no longer run by the ego, yet the arising awareness has not yet become fully integrated into their lives. Inner and outer purpose have not merged. - Eckhart Tolle
Every being is a spark of the Divine, or God. Look into the eyes of the dog and sense that innermost core. When you are present, you can sense the spirit, the one consciousness, in every creature and love it as yourself. - Eckhart Tolle
"A palavra iluminação transmite uma ideia de uma conquista sobre humana e isso agrada ao ego. Mas é simplesmente o estado natural de sentir se em unidade com o Ser. É um estado de conexão com algo imensurável e indestrutível. Pode parecer um paradoxo, mas esse algo é essencialmente você e ao mesmo tempo, é muito maior do que você. A iluminação consiste em encontrar a verdadeira natureza por trás do nome e da forma. A incapacidade de sentir essa conexão da origem a uma ilusão de separação, tanto de você mesmo quanto do mundo ao redor. Quando você se percebe, consciente ou inconscientemente, como um fragmento isolado. O medo e os conflitos internos e externos tomam conta da sua vida. Adoro a definição simples de Buda para a iluminação: é o fim do sofrimento. Não há nada de sobre humano nisso, não é mesmo? Claro que não! É uma definição completa. Ela apenas nos diz o que a iluminação não é: não é sofrimento, mas o que resta quando não há mais sofrimento. - Buda silencia a respeito. E esse silêncio implica que teremos que encontrar a resposta por nós mesmos.(...)
Recuperar a consciência do Ser e submeter-se a esse estado de percepção dos sentidos é o que se chama iluminação." #opoderdoagora#eckharttolle#Deus#iluminação
Trecho do livro O poder do Agora - Eckhart Tolle)
I am rereading this book for about the 1,000th time. Every time I read it I learn something new, or it has a deeper meaning than before. Below are some of my favorite passages from @eckharttolle in A New Earth.
The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but your thoughts about it.
Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance.
Sometimes letting things go is an act of far greater power than defending or hanging on.
You can only lose something that you have, but you cannot lose something that you are.
You have so much to learn from your enemies.
Defining yourself through thought is limiting yourself.
Remember back to the unhealthy relationship with the narcissist? We believed what we believed and all our actions came from that. Some of the trauma was realising how ‘wrong’ we were. We projected a lot of our own beliefs on to other - that’s how we got into so much distress. We saw what we wanted to see. #cognitivedissonance
When we woke up, we needed to reframe our beliefs to match our knew understanding of reality. We learnt that we ignored the Truth of the moment based on our then-beliefs about the past (love bombing) and the future (future faking) - not to mention our own ingrained beliefs from our experiences with love, intimacy and relationships.
This is a microcosmic example of what happens in our macrocosmic world. We don’t know the big picture and so most of our beliefs and actions from our beliefs through our experiences are faulty.
When we wake up from what’s happening, we form new beliefs that blame the narcissist for THEIR reality. We scapegoat them and put ourselves above them to make ourselves feel better. However, this egoic trick does not work. Besides, the narcissist is working out of a false belief system as well - so dysfunctional that they are pathological - and, just like us, prisoners of their own minds (the difference is, they’re in Guantanamo Bay with a life sentence). ✨✨✨
Waking up from the experience with a narcissist is our invitation to understand and accept that there is no one reality. We are all acting out from faulty egoic belief systems bred into us familially and culturally since birth. It is stillness through meditation that can help us become aware of what Truth is. #1giantmindapp The Work of Byron Katie is also a Godsend. Question your beliefs. 🙏
