Life is a Precious Gift - The Sea Calls & the Wind is Free

Ron Alexander Lucia Gaia - Light of the World!
Jeeni Zucchini; beautiful!

Thomas Lavendol: There is nothing like running a sail boat in a good steady breeze, instant
connection with the universal deity

Ron Alexander Yes! Thomas Lavendol! You have definitely had the Experience. I have always had mostly bluewater sailboats, but besides a 14 ft. Chrysler, my latest purchase was a trawler to live aboard. However, it is too compilicated for me - electric heads, hot water, 2 showers, heating and ac, so I am selling it and going to buy a small liveaboard sailboat - one that can go long distances SAILING FREE!

Ra Divakar: Sail Free Brother Capt. Ron! KISS - Keep It Simple Sail!

This fits what I have been writing about - Freedom! To go and come as I please, to choose my close friends, to create, to experience joy = ecstacy even = Life is Precious!

The TurnAround Work of Byron Katie


Ron Alexander Katie (really her last name) has been one of my favorite teachers. She really teaches about our Oneness. So if you work with her, she gets you to turn around your judgements to yourself & sometimes it ain't easy!
The Work of Byron Katie If you act from fear, there’s no way you can receive love, because you’re trapped in a thought about what you have to do for love. Every stressful thought separates you from people.

The Irony of Ego

Kim Gudinius Braune Yes I do too remember and its so beautiful but divorcing my ego has not been easy.. So I need to transform the ego and make it my avatar instead....and then no need for separation regrets (sorry bad english...) ;-) with love ♥
Ron Alexander Love your ego, unless it is unbalanced it is the part of us that drives our car, that makes the rules for our children, that makes you want to excel at your job, that makes you a manager or want to be a good employee. What is toxic is being "ego centric", egotistical, egoism - it is the ego out of balance. Loving it like your inner child is what keeps it balanced.

Ron Alexander Gary Zukav calls the ego our "earth guide". Freud who invented the word ego, calls it the part of us between our id (animal instinctual part - lower brain) and our superego (our higher self). He even calls the ego our "conscious" part between the two.
Thank you for holding your beautiful heart open for this ♥ I LOVE you ♥♥♥ Kim Gudinius Braune My experience with this goddess Kim is that choosing to listen to my heart all the time made it unimportant ♥ Just watching thoughts coming by and if there are from my egomind, let them pass ♥ This way it faded out naturally ♥ My ego is still awake and kicking, but it has very little effect on my behavior and my choices ♥ I LOVE you ♥♥♥
Ron Alexander Thank you my divine friend for sharing your truth on this ♥ My truth is this ♥ In a separated world ego can have functions ♥ When you live only by the truth of your heart, ego fades away, because ego belongs to your mind ♥ The problem I see with ego is that it is created as how others see you, and that leads to many challenges ♥ When you listen to your heart, you act out of how you know yourself ♥ My truth is never better, but sometimes different ♥ I LOVE and honor your truth as much as my own ♥ I LOVE you ♥♥♥ ♥ Jean ♥ others ♥ Thank you LOVE ♥ I LOVE you ♥♥♥ Namaste
Ron Alexander Well, Bent - I agree but why leave the ego out of your vast love, One Love, ron
Bent Kim LundbergRon Alexander LOLOL Oh, I do not my LOVE ♥ I just don't pay attention to it ♥ ONE LOVE ♥♥♥ Namaste
Ron Alexander Dear Bent, Your inner child needs attention, why not the ego - that is when it becomes unbalanced like a naughty child - too proud or weak victim. We all need a strong well-balanced ego instead of a being arrogant or being too weak (a victim of the world for example).
2Bent Kim Lundberg
Ron Alexander As I said my divine friend, I respect and honor your truth as my own, but I beg to differ ♥ That is not my perception ♥ If that is the truth of your heart I bless it as your truth, but it is not the truth of my heart ♥ As you know I consider our hearts the only authoritative source on divine matters, so for me there are 7billion+ valid truths ♥ I LOVE you ♥♥♥ ♥ Paulette ♥ Thank you LOVE ♥ I LOVE you ♥♥♥ Namaste
Ron Alexander One even needs a healthy ego to create a good answer or a good question here on facebook. Or to be an inspirational loving supporter like I see you are Dear Bent!
Bent Kim Lundberg L ♥ V E
1Kim Gudinius Braune Very nice inputs, I'm playing with the games of ego ...and when I'm putting it to paper it comes out as drawings...soon my walls are filled with them ;-) , My avatar (my body and my mind with oneness) improves everyday ♥ ;-) L<3VE
· 2Kim Gudinius Braune Good Night and thank you all for a nice moment in cyberspace ;

· 2Bent Kim LundbergKim Gudinius Braune Oh yes goddess Kim ♥ I LOVE those inspiring perspectives ♥ If there is ONE thing I am sure of it is that I know nothing, so I rejoice in getting inspirational perspective from all ♥ Wow. What a great creation ♥ That must be so fun ♥ Good night and sweet dreams ♥ I LOVE you 3♥♥ ♥ Helen ♥ Thank you LOVE ♥ I LOVE you ♥♥♥
Effie Aghili Love and Gratitude to my dear Bent for your love, your wisdom and sharing this message and also your beautiful comments on this post... I love you ♥♥♥ My dear Ron by separation I meant not identifying ourselves with our ego, just recognizing that we are not our ego. Of course we need our ego for our daily life. And we never should fight or hate it because will make it stronger...Our ego always wants us to believe that we're divided, yet we are ONE...Thank you dear Ron for sharing your love and message with us...Love and bliss of oneness to you and your beautiful heart...I love you...♥ :)

Bent Kim LundbergEffie Aghili Thank you my amazing goddess friend ♥ I LOVE your wisdom, inspiration and JOY that you express so well here and always ♥ I LOVE you too ♥♥♥ ♥ Narges ♥ Thank you LOVE ♥ I LOVE you too ♥♥♥ Namaste

Ron Alexander It is just so ironic, that we need a strong ego to let go of it. I am so indoctrinated by Dr. Freud's definition (after all he invented this system) training as a therapist. And you need to understand, most of my clients needed a build up of their weak ego, by inspiration, by support, and most of all seeing the Love in their heart - who they really are...as all of you Onedafull Loving Beings!

Effie Aghili Abundance of love to you dear Ron...♥♥♥

Be the Change that you want


Many an individual has turned from the mean, personal, acquisitive point of view to one that sees society as a whole and works for its benefit. If there has been such a change in one person, there can be the same change in many. Mahatma Gandhi(gratefulness.org)
Craig Moriarty: Okay, I am being the change that I would like to see in the world. Now what? Ron Alexander: Need do nothing! Just BE the loving, caring person you are Craig - a Human Being not a human doing! Only rats win the rat race, and I know you are not in that "race"! Thanks for Being!

ONE Love ONE Another

Benjamin Smythe :
To love yourself you have to go inside and see there is nothing there but love. There might be a forest of fear and madness to wade through first. Be still. Be quiet. Believe nothing that makes a noise.

Angie Pennington Let's wade on!

Julia Hinkle Love is the only way to truly know someone - that includes yourself.

Kendra Sea "Whether I feel it or not, I am one with all the Love in the universe." ~Thaddeus Golas


Patricia Arnold - It's never too late to think a different thought and dramatically change our lives as eternal soul.
Tom Nadeau: There are no perfect people...just a perfect way of dealing with the imperfections within us. When I practice love, and I do not always practice it successfully, love of self and of my fellows...love has a way of binding me to it's principle manifestation; and that manifestation of love is gratitude. I am grateful for this life, my experiences that have led me along it's path, all of the people ...that have walked with me in it, all of the lessons along the way and all of the positive and negative forces that have been instrumental in teaching me to love more perfectly. But most of all, I am grateful for this moment, right here and now, for it is the culmination of it all. "If you rejoice in the way things are, the whole world will belong to you"...Lao Tzu "We have no cause for anything but gratitude and joy"...Buddha

Compassion - Necessary for good Mental Health


Compassion is not religious business, it is human business, it is
not luxury, it is essential for our own peace and mental stability, it is
essential for human survival.
H.H. Dalai Lama

Good Reminder


Daring to dream what is deepest in our collective longings is what
makes us most human and fully alive.

Change by Choice


thanks Tom Nadeau Like - could be by "choice" too! Free Will - what do you think?
When change visits your life, you can be sure things are turning for the better. It may not look that way in the very moment change arrives, but if you will wait a while and have faith in the process, you will see that this is true. ~ Neale Donald Walsch
Ra Divakar In other words, change follows choice???
Tom Nadeau I agree! I am the sum total of all of my experiences, many or most of which I chose to go through and the sum total of all my actions today. I am what I do by my free will
2Ra Divakar thanks for your thoughtful response, Tom Nadeau! I feel Truth there!
Effie Aghili That is indeed true, thank you dear Ra...Love and light to you on this beautiful day...♥ :)

Happiness Starts Within



Effie Aghili: Beautiful message...(((♥)))
Valerie Stiehl: SO TRUE! WE CANNOT EXPECT OTHERS TO MAKE US HAPPY. ANYONE WHO IS IN
OUR LIFE IS IN ADDITION TO WHO WE ARE. IT DOES NOT MAKES US WHO WE ARE.
BLESSINGS. ♥
Ra Divakar: I need reminded of this often!
Anatoly Petrenko ‎Ron something more practical: "you" = single present moment thinking. There's only one thought at a time. At that level, there's a possibility to choose our thinking (with training), which becomes the source of our happiness (positive thinking) and condition for others happiness. Or our suffering (negative thinking) and condition for others suffering. So when we aim for happiness or mindlessly create suffering for ourselves, we could remind ourselves that it provides conditions for others. Interdependence.
Ron Alexander So how would you word that "reminder" Anatoly Petrenko. I have great respect for you, however I have no idea what you are taliking about?
Anatoly Petrenko I'd probably phrase it like this to give a person a real handle of application: ... "Remember Happiness starts with your positive thinking, Not with your relationship, or your friends, or your job. Even though all those could be a condition for your happiness, source of your genuine happiness is your positive thinking."
Ron Alexander Thanks Anatoly Petrenko, I really appreciate your thoughtfulness. However, somehow "positive thinking" does not go deep enough for me. I think beyond cognitive there has to be some words that convey emotions and somatics. I tried positive thinking since reading Norman Vincent Peale in my teens, and it did not work for very long period of time. "Incorporate" somehow seems an important word. How about "Remember happiness starts with your incorporating positive thinking - bringing positiveness into your whole psyche. It does not start with your relationship, or your friends, or your job. Even though all those could be a condition for your happiness, source of your genuine happiness is your incorporating postive thinking."
Anybody want in this thoughtful dialogue (no discussing - dissing & cussing)!

Be Grateful for What you Have~


"Be grateful for what you do have, and you will find it increases. I like to bless with love all that is in my life right now- my ability to see and feel and taste and touch and walk and to enjoy this incredible planet." ~Louise L. Hay
From Defenders of Gaia & Will Meis

15 Things We Can Give up to Improve our Lives

Here is a list of 15 things, which, if you give up on them, will make your life a lot easier, and much more happier. We are holding on to so many things that are causing us a great deal of pain, stress and suffering, and instead of letting them all go, instead of allowing ourselves to be stress free and happy, we cling on to them, but not anymore. Starting today we will give up on all those things that no longer serve us, and we will embrace change. So here we go:
1. Give up your need to always be right. There are so many of us can’t stand the idea of being wrong, wanting to always be right, even at the risk of ending great relationships or causing a great deal of stress and pain, for them and for others. It’s just not worth it. Whenever you feel the “urgent” need to jump into a fight over who is right and who is wrong, ask yourself this question:
“Would I rather be right, or would I rather be kind?” Wayne Dyer. What difference will that even make? Is your ego really that big?
2. Give up your need for control. Be willing to give up your need to always control everything that happens to you and around you, situations, events, people, etc., whether they are loved ones, coworkers, or just strangers you meet on the street, and just allow them to be. Allow everything and everyone to be just as they are and you will see how much better will that make you feel.“By letting it go it all gets done. The world is won by those who let it go. But when you try and try.
The world is beyond the winning.” Lao Tzu
3. Give up on blame. Give up on your need to blame others for what you have or what you don’t have; for what you feel or what you don’t feel. Stop giving your powers away and start taking responsibility for your life.

4. Give up your self defeating self talk. Oh my. How many people are hurting themselves because of their horrible, negative, polluted, repetitive and self defeating self talk? Don’t believe everything that your mind is telling you, especially if it’s negative and self defeating.
“The mind is a superb instrument if used rightly. Used wrongly, however, it becomes very destructive.” Eckhart Tolle
5. Give up your limiting beliefs about what you can or can not do, about what is possible or impossible. From now on you are no longer going to allow your limiting beliefs to keep you in place, to keep you stuck. Spread your wings and fly!\
“A belief is not an idea held by the mind, it is an idea that holds the mind” Elly Roselle
6. Give up complaining. Give up your constant need to complain about those many, many, maaany things, people, situations, events, that make you unhappy, sad, blues, depressed, and so on. Nobody can make you unhappy, no situation can make you sad, miserable, depressed, mad, angry, etc. , unless you allow it too. It’s not the situation that triggers those feelings in you, but how you choose to look at it, you attitude. Doesn’t that make you feel a lot better now? More powerful and in control?
7. Give up the luxury of criticism. Give up your need to criticize things, events, people that are different than you. We are all different but we are all the same. We all want to be happy, we all want to love and be loved, we all want to be understood… We all want something, and that something is wished by us all
.8. Give up your need to impress others. Stop trying so hard to be something that you’re not, just so you can make others like you. It doesn’t work this way. The moment you stop trying so hard to be something that you’re not, the moment you take of all your masks, the moment you accept and embrace the real you, people will be drawn to you, effortlessly.
9. Give up your resistance to change. Change is good. Change will help you move from A to B. Change will help you make improvements on your life and also of those around you. Follow your bliss, embrace change, don’t resist it.
“Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors for you where there were only walls” Joseph Campbell
10. Give up labels. Stop labeling those things, people, events that you don’t understand as being WEIRD and try opening your mind, little by little. You know, minds only work if open.
“The highest form of ignorance is when you reject something you don’t know anything about.” Wayne Dyer
11. Give up on your fears. Fear is just an illusion, it doesn’t exit, you created it. It’s all in your mind. Correct the inside and the outside will fall into places
.“The only fear you should fear is fear itself.” Franklin D. Roosevelt
12. Give up your excuses. Send them away. Tell them they’re fired. You no longer need them. A lot of times we limit ourselves because of the many excuses we use, and instead of growing and working on improving ourselves and our lives, we get stuck, lying to ourselves, using all kind of excuses, excuses that 99.9% of the time are not even real.
13. Give up the past. I know, I know. It’s hard, so hard, especially when the past looks so much better than the present moment and the futures looks so frightening, but you have to take into consideration the fact that the present moment is all that you have, all that you had and all that you will ever have. The past you are now longing for, the past that you are now dreaming about, was ignored by you when it was present, so stop deluding yourself. Be present in everything you do and enjoy life.Life is a journey, not a destination. Have a clear vision for the future, prepare yourself, but always be present in the now.
14. Give up attachment. This is a concept that, for most of us is so hard to grasp and I have to tell you that it was for me too, and it still is, but it’s not something that is impossible. You get better and better at it in time, by practicing… The moment you detach yourself from all things, and that doesn’t mean you give up your love for them, because love and attachment have nothing to do with one another ( attachment comes from a place of fear, while love… well, real love is pure, kind, and self less. Where there is love there can’t be fear, and because of that, attachment and love cannot coexist) you become so peaceful, so tolerant, so kind, and serene. You will get to a place where you will be able to understand all things, without even trying too. Such a precious thing. A state beyond words.
15. Give up living your life to other people’s expectations. Way too many people are living a life that is not theirs. They live their lives according to what others think is best for them, they live their lives according to what their parents think is best for them, to what their friends, their enemies and their teachers, their government, the media, etc. think is best for them, and they ignore their inner voice, that inner calling. They are so busy with pleasing everybody, with living up to other people’s expectations, that they lose control over their lives, they forget what makes them happy, they forget what they want, what they need… and eventually, they forget about themselves, they forget who they are. You have one life, this life, the only life, live it, own it, and don’t let other people’s good opinion distract you from your path.

Love alone gives value to all things.

Visualize Carefully



One time, I visualized getting a strawberry-blond girlfriend. Later, I drove on a ferry to get across a river, and this beautiful beaming strawberry blond came up to me. It was love at first sight, I asked the ferry captain if I could take her home with me. He said, "yes, we have to get rid of her any way." So I told him that if no one came back to ferry to claim her by the time I got back from my destination, I would keep her. "Honey" became the best loving Being I have ever been with - for 13 years. She was a great companion dog to life-threatened young adults that I worked with also.

Thoughts become things - be careful and watch your thinking

Joyful Living is the Catalyst that Will Bring you Everything

What
we are wanting you to hear most of all is that you need do nothing in order to
achieve what you are wanting in life. That does not mean you will be a couch
potato sitting and waiting for it to happen for you; indeed just the opposite.
The key to the understanding is in the word “need”.

When you conceived of the things and events and people that you
want in your life experience, the Universe immediately began the process that
will result in their being manifested physically in your life experience. Where
you throw the wrench in the works is when you say something like, “Now I have to
do this _____________ in order to succeed.”, or, “I must become like this
______________ in order to be worthy of this.”

It’s all those statements of, I
have to suffer more, or work harder, or have more money, or whatever… that
complicate the delivery process. You have injected a “need” where there was
none.
It’s
really meant to be easy. When you allow that having joy in this moment, right
now, places you in alignment with the Great Process: Your exuberant living of
your life as a journey—for this is a journey and not a sprint—as the precursor
to achieving your goals. It is your alignment with Source Energy, joyful,
vibrant, thrilling that is the catalyst that will bring it all to be.
The
creating is already done. Law of Attraction is bringing it to you automatically
like gravity. So breathe, and meditate, and allow inspiration to gently
discover you like the sure coming of dawn each day. You are here to live in the
journey that will bring you to the life of your
dreams. ~Twelve www.TwelveSpirit.net

Being Strong the Easy Way


Choose the Easy Way Of Spirit

If you will
continue to align yourself with Spirit—breathe, relax, allow—you will enter into
another realm. The kingdom is real, but you really have to allow it to pick you
up and transform you. You cannot keep picking up the reins for yourself and
planning out your own path. Those paths are not in alignment. Your conscious
planning mechanism is not in alignment unless you first choose the easy way of
Spirit.
Your sense of
frustration with your present world is based on your expectations, your
definition of what constitutes a rewarding life experience. So if it’s not there
in this moment you feel disappointment. It’s a bit like when you have an
expectation from another person and they don’t meet it, so you feel intense
disappointment or even anger at them for not being who you wanted them to be;
same dilemma.
So if you
will modify your beliefs about what constitutes success into something more like
happiness, wellness of being—regardless of where it comes from—then you will
have an easier time of this. Put yourself on the happiness quotient. Use
happiness in this moment as your indicator of success. Happiness indicates your
alignment with Spirit, and when you are aligned with Spirit all things that are
good will flow to you like gentle rain.

The Beatles-All Things Must Pass


Lyrics to go along with last few posts. The slideshow is a great history pictorial of the Beatles. It must have been the early Beatles as the sound quality is not that great?

Saturday, March 3, 2012


Teach this triple truth to all:, '
A generous heart,
kind speech, and
a life of service
and compassion are
the things which
renew humanity.
The Buddha

Take delight


‎"Nothing in the world is permanent, and we’re foolish when we ask anything to ...last,
but surely we’re still more foolish not to take delight in it while we have it." -W. Somerset Maugham

"The King's good servant, but God's First."


In 1534, Sir Thomas More refused to swear to the Act of
Succession
and the Oath of Supremacy, and was committed to the Tower of London on April
17. More was found guilty of treason and was beheaded alongside
Bishop Fisheron July 6, 1535. More'sfinal words on the scaffold were: "The King's good servant, but God's First."More was beatified in 1886 and canonized by the Catholic Church as a saint by Pope Pius XI in 1935.
