Dr. Tom Pinkson - I AM A SACRED WORTHY LUMINOUS BEING

Tom Pinkson: thank you relatives for your kind words but we all know that heroism is just doing what our hearts call us to do even when our knees are knocking and our hearts are pounding and that is all of us! love, tom
Tomas (Dr. Tom Pinkson) is the man! A shaman and a renowned psychologist, he is a most inspirational writer and workshop leader. I am distributing his WorldLovebracelets and his Heart Opening song/chant: I AM A SACRED WORTHY LUMINOUS BEING/ I AM LOVE AND LOVE IS FOR GIVING in a cd format. Later, I will be promoting his excellent book: Fruitful Aging: Finding the Gold in the Golden Years leads the reader to creative approaches for harvesting the labor and lessons of a lifetime. Each chapter dives deeper into exploring the universe within and leads the way to re-visioning what it means to be not only mature in years – but Golden! Thanks Tomas!
not that i deserve it but nevertheless, here it is -

Some Fav. Love Quotes

 ‎"The house of my heart is empty, devoid of desire, like paradise. Within it is no work but the love of God, no inhabitant but the image of union with Him. I have swept the house clear of good and bad - my house is full of love for the One." ~ Rumi

In Lak’ech Ala K’in
I AM another YOU. YOU ARE another ME. WE ARE ONE. ONE IS ALL. ALL IS LOVE.






Love life and yourself
 
"Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength while loving someone deeply gives you courage." -- Lao Tzu
 
There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance.
We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.
 
"It matters not Who you love, Where you love, Why you love, When you love, Or how you love, It matters only that you love." -- John Lennon

"Why not go out on a limb? Isn't that where the fruit is?"-- Frank Scully

The Best must be felt with the heart


Valerie Stiehl is a Healing Light. Thanks!

Perfect Love within our imperfectness

Who ever thought LOVE was only moonlight and roses?! Susan Boles
A PERFECT LOVE
The things I should have said,
The ways in which I turned away,
Protecting an image I never was, ...
For a salvation I never knew.

But now I have learned,
That salvation lies only in turning toward,
In burning these images one by one,
In letting go of these precious children,
The ones I smothered with love,
Out of fear of being nothing.
This may be harder than letting go of my actual children.
But whoever said unconditional love was easy?
It is not easy.
It is internal genocide.
The flames ravage without discrimination.
Leaving no part of me untouched.
But I'd rather die than never know this love.
So have no pity, dear friend.
Sit by my side as I burn.
Hold my hand this one last time.
Let me feel your warm presence.
Know that I always loved you in my own imperfect way.
Through the thick and rancid smoke of my old self,
Through the passing of all that we thought would never pass,
Can you smell the unspeakable freedom?
Do you understand now?

- Jeff Foster
from 'Falling In Love With Where You Are (Non-Duality Press)

Hope

The very least you can do in your life is to figure out what to hope for. And the most you can do is live inside that hope.

WoW Words of Wisdom by Byron Katie


If I think beautiful thoughts about you, I love you. If I think terrible thoughts about you, I hate you. It's all in me- what does any of that have to do with you? I'm putting my beliefs on you and calling it "you." -- Katie
 
 
Hell is "Help will arrive any minute."
Freedom is "No one's coming."
--Byron Katie

I cannot judge another human being without distorting myself.

Soul-Force

Here's one of my fav's
Peace Is
Peace Is6:05pm Oct 29
"That there is a Soul-force, we know, but that this Soul-power can do more for us than all the material and mental power combined is but little suspected. Perhaps one reason for the world's lack of interest in this vast subject is that this great reservoir of power resident in our Soul cannot be used for selfish purposes. Think of the enormity of this -- a great marvelous power at hand, and yet it can never be used to serve a selfish end. Herein lies the secret of why so few achieve Soul-consciousness. We only become aware of the presence of the Soul after we have freed ourselves of selfish desires, and in proportion to our desire to serve the interests of mankind do we individualize this infinite power within us."

~Joel Goldsmith~

The Gift of the Moment



Thought For the Week:  Rev. Edwin Kosak
Here's a nice way to keep your sanity. Remember this: the past is history, the future is a mystery, all we have is the gift of the moment, that's why it's called the present. I pass this along to you as a way to practice the Law of Mind Action, (or thoughts held in mind produce after their kind). I've heard the gift part of the quotation, but never the first two parts. And just this week,  guess who I heard those parts from? Mike Ditka, coach of the Chicago Bears! They are even practicing universal principles in pro football

The Aware Ego

 
Lisa Holliday (from the group The Work of Byron Katie)
Woah you guys. It is like both processors have finally come on line together to realize they are the same computer! My argument of the Ego vs. Awareness is cooked! I can only describe it as the Aware Ego, and they are one thing-in love with each other! I feel like mind has finally landed on solid ground. A way to speak of it might be that the Oneness and the Otherness are both awake and cooperating, separate AND one. It makes for a beautiful life. And I don't fear losing "it". It is not a "state". How could "EVERYTHING" be a state? Its like Life is the vast, unlimited, unknowable computer, awareness and ego the processors, and both are humming along and I am having a wonderful time. NamasYay!
 
Ron Alexander Yep, thanks Lisa - just think - if we think negatively about anything - our heart closes so the same happens when we think badly about our "ego" - read the untethered soul (the journey beyond yourself) by Michael A. Singer.
The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself
The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself\







 
Ron Alexander "There is only innocence. Everything else is a lie." Therefore the "ego" is innocent!

 
Carson Boyd Ego is innocent. Bingo.

Non-violent Activist



César Estrada Chávez, non-violent activist on behalf of Latino civil rights and farm workers’ rights, advocate for non-human animal rights, vegan. A true 20th Century hero, worthy of a Nobel Peace Prize, whose mantra of "Sí, se puede" became more famous later as Barack Obama’s “Yes We Can” campaign slogan.

Some quotes from this extraordinary, insightful man:

 “Kindness and compassion towards all living things is a mark of a civilized society. Conversely, cruelty, whether it is directed against human beings or against animals, is not the exclusive province of any one culture or community of people.”

“I became a vegetarian after realizing that animals feel afraid, cold, hungry and unhappy like we do. I feel very deeply about vegetarianism and the animal kingdom. It was my dog Boycott who led me to question the right of humans to eat other sentient beings.”

“We need, in a special way, to work twice as hard to help people understand that the animals are fellow creatures, that we must protect them and love them as we love ourselves.”

The Brilliant Four Agreements

Being impeccable you take responsibility for your actions, but you do not judge or blame yourself for anything. By Don Miguel Ruiz

By Loving, you become Love



Peace Is (from the group Rising Up Now)
There is no way to gain love from the world or from the people of the world. None! Many have tried it; everyone fails. It can’t be accomplished. The only way is the way of spiritual Light – by loving, you become loved. There’s no other way. ~Joel Goldsmith

Dance

Dance, when you're broken open. Dance, if you've torn the bandage off. Dance in the middle of the fighting. Dance in your blood. Dance when you're perfectly free.”

"Over love's depths only the surface is wrinkled."



I Look Out Over The Timeless Sea
00:42
by R. S. Thomas (1913-2000) I look out over the timeless sea...
over the head of one, calendar
to time's passing, who is now open
at the last month, her hair wintry.

Am I catalyst of her mettle that,
at my approach, her grimace of pain
turns to a smile? What it is saying is:
"Over love's depths only the surface is wrinkled."

Cannot love empathically until one wanders to ecstasy with it's resulting despair

The coin that pays for ecstasy is always stamped despair. One cannot love empathically until one wanders there.

Love Sings Joyously in my Heart

Starting the Day and the Week in a Loving Way:

Each morning before I get out of bed I say a prayer of intention for the day: “Please guide me in every moment, in every experience to ...always choose LOVE in all I think, say and do … every thought, word and deed.” When you consistently make that your objective for the day, you’ll find things flowing much more smoothly even when life’s challenges appear. Trust me … I’ve had lots of experience with this! ~Sherri Bishop
Thank you Sherri!
With Love I breath, I read inspiration, I refresh myself, I meditate, prepare tea and breakfast, I drink tea and eat, shower, greet friends, exercise, and write mindfully and gratefully!
