Below is a four-minute video about how our attitude is the basis for our thoughts, which aggregate and become beliefs. The beliefs become the framework for our reality. Our attitude generates the emotions that color and fill in the framework with a “reality” that seems quite solid, tough it is but an illusion.
Here is a GREAT video, featuring David Lynch, Wyane Dyer, Deepak Chopra, Gregg Braden and more. They explain in ten minutes that the substance of the universe is consciousness. They tell us we only have fear when we believe that the substance of the universe is matter.
Once again we are celebrating Thanksgiving in the United States. It is a long tradition of turkey, stuffing and various casseroles consumed by various families with different traditions. Eating too much, taking a nap and perhaps a family squabble or two thrown in.
I like the idea of stopping and appreciating, being grateful for how wonderful our lives are. We have created this complex illusion out of consciousness. We should express our gratitude for this reality we’ve created — the joyous parts and the parts that have given us pause. The negative parts show us what we don’t want so we can work on creating differently.
All of our creation is a testament to our magnificence and the magnificence of Consciousness.
I invite you to watch/listen to this beautiful music video and think of the many things in your life for which you can give your thanks.
This video — a little over 7 minutes long — gives a very good explanation about what we give our attention to and how it affects our lives. Have you ever noticed that when things get “bad” they seem to compound and get worse? Or that when things start going well, lots of things start to line up how you want them?
It has audio with a static image, so you don’t have to actually WATCH it — you can just listen to it and get great info.
The Honest Guys encourage us to commit random acts of kindness. I am so into this notion! When you do random good things for others, you not only make that person’s day, but you get a great rush of happiness from knowing you’ve done something helpful. Your random act of kindness may inspire the recipient to do something wonderful for someone else and create a chain of kindness. Since you are doing something kind and moving on, you won’t know for sure, but you can take great satisfaction in knowing you helped one person today!
Here, they are offering ideas and their food for thought to help you come up with your own random acts of kindness.
Today is the 41st anniversary of the first person walking on the moon. Less than 8 years earlier, on September 12, 1962, President John F. Kennedy gave the “We Choose to Go to the Moon” speech announcing plans to go to the Moon before the end of the decade.
What an ambitious task! Especially in retrospect. Given the technology of 48 years ago when the announcement was made and 41 years ago when Apollo 11 went to the moon, it seems like they did the impossible. We have 10 times more memory and computing power in the average smart phone today than the astronauts had on their spaceship. Can you imagine using your iPhone or BlackBerry as your only computing resource for space travel?
Henry Ford is credited with saying, “Whether you believe you can do a thing or not, you are right.” NASA, the astronauts and their support systems believed they could achieve this monumental goal in the 1960s.
Most people alive today do not remember Apollo 11. They have grown up watching Star Trek, Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica, Stargate, etc. They think of warp drives, worm holes, “Beam me up, Scotty,” and cloaking devices as the technologies that go with space travel. Apollo 11 had none of that and yet they made it to the moon, and to me the more amazing part — they made it back to Earth safely!
Stare at this beautiful image as you listen to John Serrie’s beautiful music. I suggest you eliminate other distractions while you watch this to get the full effect. The combination of the visual and the audio is truly stunning. The colors are similar to those I associate with the first, second, sixth and seventh chakras.
As the world becomes increasingly polarized and the news stories are filled with hate, it is a wonderful reminder that we need to get back to practicing kindness.
We need to remember that we are all One Self. There is no “other.”
There is only one. There is an illusion of many, but just as all of the drops in the ocean are part of the same ocean, we are all the same Source energy, partially manifested in physical to give the appearance of many.
We are deeply connected to all that is. There is only an illusion of separation.
Offering love and kindness to others is an offer of love and kindness to ourselves.
I found this charming music video that reminds us of the benefits of practicing Universal Loving-Kindness.
