"operating system of fear"
to an "operating system of love"
•Become the ever present watcher
•Deeply present in each moment
•Returning home each moment I have drifted away
•Dieing to the past each moment, each moment a new begin
•An opportunity to choose again
•Observe the reactions in the body, emotions, just sensations, just chemical reactions in the body
•Observe the mental though forms of the mind, very little to do with me, simple reflections of the world around me •Being kind to myself
•Having compassion for myself, becoming aware of the deep neural path ways that have been layed.
•Being patient, I love you and I'm listening, from my deepest essance to my mind and body •Just observing, no analysis, no reaction is required
•Without reaction stillness sets in, space becomes avaliable •Disassociation happens naturally
•Gaps between thoughts start to lengthen •Repetitive patterns become apparent
•Self control is strengthened, choice becomes an option on deeper more subtle levels
•Choice to follow love not fear becomes available •Each moment love or fear,
Love or fear,
Love or fear
•What's the motivating factor?
•What's the roots of my action/reaction? Only two options
•The more I choose love the more I connect to my true nature
•The more I choose love the more I show up for life
•The more I choose love the more life shows up for me
•The more I choose love, love is reflected back at me by others.
•Each time I choose love I'm returning home, returning to my full potential, returning to the way I was born to be.
Life is too short to wake up with regrets.
So Love your Family & Friends hard.
BELIEVE that life is good.
If you get a chance, Take It. 👈
If it changes your life, Let It.
Because when you stop and look around 👀
✨Life Is Pretty Amazing✨
We Are All Connected 🧡Serve
The abyss. If you haven’t faced it, be grateful. It devours everything that crosses its event horizon. At that moment, space-time laws, the fundamental truths are gone. Your body cannot move against the force. Time stops. There is no up, left, right, only down, into meaningless, unending doubts and emptiness. This not a happy place, or a sad place. It is emptiness that defies words, thought or feeling. And if I let it, it will define me. It is not cruel. It is cold, like liquid hydrogen cold. It does not care. It is a Dementor, and it is inside, unseen.
I regret that I have succumb to the despair of the abyss, more than once. The memory of it returns in nightmares. What returned me to the event horizon was the awareness of the moment. Here and now. Space and time. From that moment, the next, and the next. Very small steps across an eternal distance.
I chose to return to the abyss, for sisters and brothers who were alone there. Some were lost forever, and some chose to take the hand of hope, for that moment, and the next. It is a gift that we pay forward. A sacred trust that cannot be relinquished. I grieve for those I lost and those I did not know had fallen into the abyss. I do not blame them or judge them. I simply miss them. They are at peace. For those whose hand felt the moment of faith, I could only offer this: We are here. We are now. We are together. You are loved.
These were the words of Father Joachim Mortorano, a Servite, a priest and a friend. He has long been gone to the peace he passed on to us.
If you know someone who is staring into the abyss, reach out with presence and compassion, if you can. If it is too dark a place, find someone who can reach into the abyss in your stead, for your friend. Have courage, compassion and hope. Nothing more, nothing less, nothing else.
“Be happy in the moment, that’s enough. Each moment is all we need. Nothing more” •
Happy Tuesday friends! I challenge you all to find the joy and the positives in life today, then reflect on them. Smile about them. Laugh about them. Enjoy and experience everything life gives you to work with. With that, you’ll become a stronger and happier human being 💗🔆
I have a wise friend whose name starts with J, and ends in R who once gave me the most lovely advice that I pass on very often these days🎯She told me that the easier you can just go with the “season of life knowing it is always a season. The more joyful life will be”! I have so much to be thankful for in past seasons, the current season and future seasons to come🍁🍁🌾🦃Happy Canadian Thanksgiving! #blessed#thanksgiving#seasons#godisgood#eachmoment#joy#fieldofdreams#family#moments#hillsandvalleys
I’ve almost finished my first gratitude journal (pages wise - I’ll be continuing), a lovely gift from a friend now scribbled in line after line of gratitude and appreciation for the small and the big moments of the past few months. I don’t limit myself to just three a day. Instead I combine morning (or usually evening pages) a la @theartistsway_ and free write but everything is something I’m grateful for. It really is uplifting and a habit I love. So much to be grateful for!

"You can't skip chapters, that's not how life works. You have to read every line, meet every character. You won't enjoy all of it. Hell, some chapters will make you cry for weeks. You will read things you don't want to read, you will have moments when you don't want the pages to end. But you have to keep going. Stories keep the world revolving. Live yours, don't miss out." @courtneypeppernell •••
MAN OH MAN ... how do those words make you feel? They certainly stirred a lot of emotion in me. I know them all to well. Many of us do. Just remember ... your entire story is BEAUTIFUL. Even the painful, sorrow filled moments. There is a great great beauty in those moments. In a broken heart that has loved so deeply that it's shattering was the only way it could continue to grow and expand. •••
Live fully in each experience. Live your life ... be present. Feel deeply through all your emotions. It is your amazing story after all.
👉Every SECOND that you spend worrying about what has happened in the past or what will happen in the future, you miss opportunities to make a change to create the future you want. •
🗣❌There is no amount of complaining or worrying that will help you get to where you are trying to go. The only way to accomplish that is to take the actions that are necessary to get there. You have absolutely no control over your past OR your future because the past is gone and the future isn’t promised. The only thing that you can control is THIS MOMENT RIGHT NOW...and it is what you do with this moment that will dictate where your next moment is and where your next moment is and so on until all these moments add up to one single moment where you look around and you realize that you are right where you needed to be :) •
🤔Think about how you are spending each and every precious moment that you are given. Answer this to yourself (or in the comments) and make the change that you and your incredible future deserve.
Sound ON 🌈 The ART of living ✨🕊 Life is so extremely precious…
How special it is.
One day, life will flash before your eyes.
Make sure it is worth watching.
In our last breaths.. We will all wonder.
Did my life mean anything?
Make your life matter.
Make sure your life is FULL of LIVING.
To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist.
Live your life with PASSION. The journey is about you here on earth.
Stop making it about others.
Fill your cup first, put yourself always in the first place.
Then effortlessly it flows out of you to others in service for the divine. Giving from an unconditional place is the most powerful one.
It is about how much YOU can FEEL being ALIVE and CONNECTED.
Trust your self when everybody else doubts you.
Master your dreams when all others give up on theirs.
BE THE LION when all others are playing SHEEP.
Don´t take this magical life for granted. It is so extremely PRECIOUS.
Show up each day for you.
For your loving heart.
You were given the gift of being here in this body. To have this experience.
Make this experience, the gift of being here on the planet worth every breath you breathe.
When you realise how much there is…endless fountains of energy.
How much love there is.
In this moment.
