Re-connect


Re-connect with your inner child


 However, even with these understanding, we still need to go back to that wonderful child that was so vulnerable, accepting and innocent. The child that lost the innocence of youth through
traumas that occurred at different stages in its development. We need to release the wounded inner child and to explore in a gentle and loving manner, the wonder and delight that it is to be a
child again. To live in joy, and to become this innocent child in our daily lives. To do tumble wheels, cartwheels, handstands; to run, jump, sing, paint or draw; all of these are creative extensions springing from a healthy relationship with our inner child.
Just by being in the present moment, we express these childlike delights in our everyday lives. We fill our life with the scent of roses, the smell of the ocean, the sight of the mountains and with Love of Life. We fulfill our own needs through Love, understanding, and forgiveness, and by embracing our inner child.
We need to nurture and embrace our inner child by hugging and loving the adult, then moving back and exploring this inner child, sending forgiveness and Love into our environment as we created it at the time. Perhaps we chose a challenging environment to learn from in order to experience our true nature. We all choose the family into which we are born, we all choose to incarnate into a particular environment and at a particular moment in time. We carry through belief systems, not only from this lifetime but other lifetimes, which causes us to act and react and behave in a particular manner in this dance of life, in this intricate weaving. We create our perceived reality and the people that are with us in this perceived reality. As we dance and we weave our images, some of these creations might be drab but then we start to see the Light and we bring in multicolor and we create a weaving that is more suitable to us, and more suitable to our reality as Master Beings of Love and Light."

Stuck at a place where you felt the least love?

Agree, however that inner child can be healed
by Conscious Reminder I often come across people who are 20, 30, 40 years old, but that’s just on the outside. Deep inside they seem to be stuck in early childhood…

My One Year Old





Went back inside to my innocent lovable loving beloved one year old self. Perfect peace still living in me. Thank you little ONE😇

So stop trying to love yourself;

Forget about 'transcending' the body.
Love it instead!
Let go of the idea of 'letting go'.
Instead, let love go deep into the tender places, the parts that ache.
Breathe into your sadness. Let your fear move deep within.
Bow to your uncertainty.
There is an untouchable place in you that fearlessly allows itself to be touched.
Here, even your unworthiness has worth! 
And that old feeling that you are unloveable? It is loveable here!
There is so much room in you, friend.
So much room.
There is nothing wrong with you,
including the idea
that there is something wrong with you.
So stop trying to love yourself;
simply be the Self that loves.
With blessings,
Jeff Foster

Stay present with it,


Jeff Foster's Newsletter - August 2017
"Turn towards the part of yourself
that feels broken, tender, raw, 'bad',
and for a moment, stop running away from it,
and stop searching for its solution.
Listen to it. Stay present with it,
as you would with a hurt child..."
- Jeff Foster

Mystery needs to be

 
 
You do not need to know precisely what is happening, or exactly where it is all going. What you need is to recognize the possibilities and challenges offered by the present moment, and to embrace them with courage, faith, and hope.

Some weeks are better than others. For many of us, this week was—others.

The violence we watched unfold in Charlottesville and its aftermath, reminded us of many things. It was a reminder of how much hatred there still exists in the world, how deeply racism is embedded in our country, and how far we still have to go for all people to be treated equally.

But along with those sickening, disheartening truths, there were others. We saw a disparate group of people bravely opposing hatred alongside one another. We saw clergy from all faith traditions come together to stand against religious extremism. We saw political pressure and public outcry when the President avoided naming the White Supremacy and hate groups responsible for the terror in the Charlottesville. We saw the best of humanity refusing to let fear rule the day. We watched love being proven in real time.

Yes, these are difficult, exhausting days, but there are reasons to hope everywhere. Today, give yourself a space and time to pause and breathe; to dwell on the places you see hope.

Be encouraged,
Reverend John Pavlovitz has been preaching the gospel for two decades, but unlike his Trump-supporting counterparts, he actually practices what he preaches.In the below piece, posted to his website today, Pavlovitz shows the courage to say what many will not about the terrifying scene that unfolded today. Every white American needs to take urgent action to confront the scourge of racist hate.  What we’re watching unfold in Charlottesville, with hundreds of white people bearing torches and chanting about the value of white lives and shouting slurs, is not a “far Right” protest. When you move that far right, past humanity, past decency, past goodness—you’re something else.  You’re not a supremacist, you’re not a nationalist, and you’re not alt-Right.
This is racism.                           This is domestic terrorism.     This is religious extremism.          This is bigotry.         It is blind hatred of the most vile kind.It doesn’t represent America.      It doesn’t represent Jesus.  It doesn’t speak for the majority of white Americans.                 It’s a cancerous, terrible, putrid sickness that represents the absolute worst of who we are.

The most important thing...


Huge danger to pretend that awful things do not happen.

It is a huge danger to pretend that awful things do not happen. But you need enough hope to keep going. I am trying to make hope. Flowers grow out of darkness.

Truth of the pigment


A Christian Pastor Just Called Out Every White American In Epic Response To Virginia Rally

Though all of us can eventually trace our lineage back to oneness, all carrying a varied blood in our veins—the surface level differences matter to these torch-bearers. They value white lives and white voices above anything else, and so we whose pigmentation matches theirs need to speak with unflinching clarity about this or we simply amen it.
So I’m saying it.

We are not with you, torch-bearers, in Charlottesville or anywhere.
We do no consent to this.
In fact we stand against you, alongside the very beautiful diversity that you fear.
We stand with people of every color and of all faiths, people of every orientation, nationality, and native tongue.

What brings you ...A guide to fav. places in CA


What brings you joy?

Roz Brooks

What I suggest to people is that the thing to do is very simple. Just ask yourself: What brings you joy? What makes you happy? And that is your biggest signal into your heart. What has happened is that we have become a society of people that live from the head. But it is our heart that is actually the doorway to our soul and the doorway to our infinite self. So start living from your heart and ask yourself everyday, “What brings me joy?” Everything you do, whether you are going to work, or praying, or meditating, ask yourself, “Am I doing this out of love for myself, out of love for the people around me, out of love for my life?” Or “Am I doing this out of fear of the consequences?” and interestingly—nine times out of 10—you will find that most people do something not because they want to do it, but because they are afraid that if they don’t do it, there will be consequences.

Go within


I go within to that place of perfect peace to take a break from illusion of reality now and clarity.

He called our first black president a “p*ssy.”

Trump keeps feeding his supporters rubbish, and they in turn eagerly devour it and beg for more. It doesn’t matter what he says or does, the MAGA crowd will scream till they’re blue in the faces heralding his utter defeats as unparalleled victories. They’re stuck in a vicious cycle of delusion.
As Trump’s tiny hands beat the drums of war against North Korea, his supporters work themselves into a bloodthirsty lather. They’re pulling out all of their bigoted rhetoric, including resurrecting their old racist claims that President Obama was a “secret Muslim” and wasn’t born in the United States.
One Trump supporter took to Facebook to attack President Obama and praise Trump. He called our first black president a “p*ssy.” A U.S. Marine stepped in to set the record straight with an epic response:   

Those who have experienced war firsthand know just how terrible it is. Trump’s threats of nuclear holocaust in North Korea are indefensible and dangerous. He’s an incompetent leader and has all the military understanding of a small child playing with toy soldiers. Now, more than ever, it’s important for people with real experience to speak out, and push back against the madness.

Be as a child again,




Be as a child (Beginner's Mind, Emptiness) again, to enter the gates of heaven?

Ron Alexander Could this help explain dementia, senility?

Karen Sara Tracy Looney I feel like dementia results from a life long suppression of emotions and thoughts. Towards the end of life this souls wants to clear out, so we carry that baggage onwards, yet it's too painful and overwhelming.
Manage
Ron Alexander Interesting, could it be both and more? I am looking for compassionate way of interpreting it, and it is different for individuals. Have you seen the Notebook movie?
Manage
Karen Sara Tracy Looney yes I saw that. It could be a perfect storm kind of a mix, with environmental and genetic contributions.
Manage
Ron Alexander The answer, no matter the cause, they (we) treat then(us) with loving kindness.
