Learning to bless those we love creates sacredness.  A blessing is a sacred act to share our love and wisdom and to pass it on to our loved ones and future generations. Rumi wrote “A Hundred Blessing”  and a beautiful video sings his words.

Hundred Blessings – Rumi

When Love comes suddenly and taps on your window,

run and let it in,

but first shut the door of your reason,

even the smallest hint chases love away,

like smoke that drowns the freshness of the morning breeze.

To reason, Love can only say the way is barred, you can’t pass through,

but to the lover it offers a hundred blessings.

Before the mind decides to take a step,

Love has reached the seventh heaven.

Love has climbed the Holy Mountain.

I must stop this talk now and let Love speak from its nest of silence

 

May your day be fully of many blessings,

Peacefully, Jane

 

 

Most of us are familiar words from Ghandi “Be the change that we want to see in the world. Anthony de Mello, a Jesuit priest spoke theses words before he unexpectedly died shows another way to look at how we can change…or not change…

Don’t change. Change is impossible, and even if it were possible, it is undesirable. Stay as you are. Love yourself as you are. And change, if it is at all possible, will take place by itself when and if it wants. Leave yourselves alone. The only growth-promoting change is that which comes from self-acceptance.”

The message once more is to love your Self, your authentic self, fully. Get out of the way. Be still. Meditate. Love and accept who you are in this moment. These words of advice have been echoed through the ages. We seem to be able to love other’s more fully than ourselves. But this is not truth…our love comes from within, from the deepest part of our being, of our knowing. When we find the truth of who we are, we rejoice! We celebrate this intimacy and this deep connection to something that knows only love. Then, we are loved in a way previously unknown. We have this well of loving Essence that seems to be constantly flowing through us and now we can share it with others. As de Mello says, we only have to have self-acceptance…love of self…then it pours outs to others in a true and unconditional form.

Simply here

Do you ever wonder how far radical self-acceptance can open your heart?

I do.

What if we loved ourselves so unconditionally that we tenderly, gently, embraced ourselves into our deepest soul-mate self?

I want to love myself that deeply.

Then to watch the boundaries of self and body and house and earth dissolve until you know in your deepest fibers–your very deepest fibers–that it’s all One in its diverse infinite expression, as far as you can see, as wide as you can hear, as intricately as touch strokes the softest feather.

When you look across the horizon and greet yourself coming and going, finches singing sweetly on the branches of yourself, your wings taking flight.

Anthony de Mello, a Jesuit priest spoke these words just before he unexpectedly died: 

 Don’t change.  Change is impossible, and even if it were possible, it is undesirable.  Stay as you are.  Love yourself as you are.  And…

We are all seeds of conscious knowing.  Each of us has wisdom within our hearts that await us…to listen…to unfold…to embrace…to be…

A message I received from a meditation…

Relax in Your Knowing

relax in your knowing

be one with thy Self

of eternal being

wonderment fills the inner space

the fifth gate opens now

welcoming ye to enter

into the vortex of stillness

movement of the stars surrounds

ye are lifted into lightness

it begins…

magnitude of hosts upon hosts surround ye

stillness mends the heart

frees the bird to soar

keeper of the heart calls to ye

spring open the latch

open to the divinity of love

all encompassing, all surrendering

with the gentleness of a budding rose

opening with grace and truth

the mystery unfolds in rawness

of the awakening rays

“The Magic of Love” Helen Steiner Rice

Love is like magic, and it always will be,

For love still remains life’s sweet mystery.

Love works in ways that are wondrous and strange,

And there’s nothing in life that love cannot change!

Love can transform the most commonplace

Into beauty and splendor and sweetness and grace.

Love is unselfish, understanding and kind, For it sees with its heart, and not with its mind.

Love is the answer that everyone seeks;

Love is the language that every heart speaks.

Love can’t be bought, it is priceless and free.

Love, like pure magic, is life’s sweet mystery

Helen Steiner Rice (1900-1981) was an American writer of religious and inspirational poetry.  When I read this poem about the magic of love, I can feel the wondrous spirit of love flowing around me…it must be magically!

Peacefully, Jane

My affirmation for today:

Today I give myself permission to be greater than my fears.

When we truly rise above our fears, allowing ourselves to step forward to try something new, magical things seem to occur that support our journey.  Listen to yourself today.  Listen to your thoughts.  Clear your mind of your fears…if only for a moment…and see how you feel.  You have the ability to transform your fears and create something new in your life.  Be courageous to take a new step…move in a loving way…and allow yourself to be empowered by your heart.  Treat yourself with loving compassion and your confidence will grow, your mind will clear…”joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.”

This is a message I receive in a meditation at a time when I was very fearful and feeling very alone~

It is easy to fear

To hide behind thy face

Not to venture forth

Not to find new horizons

Keep up the walls

Build armies of might

Fear all those you near

Tis easy to fear

 

Yet to open thy self to all that is anew

Unknown paths, unknown faces

Tis growth of life

Not easy to face

As changes ye must make

Yet, where fear has left

Only happiness and love remain

You are unique

4042180234_64cd2859c9_m

“A tulip doesn’t strive to impress anyone. It doesn’t struggle to be different than a rose. It doesn’t have to. It is different. And there’s room in the garden for every flower. You didn’t have to struggle to make your face different than anyone else’s on earth. It just is. You are unique because you were created that way. Look at little children in kindergarten. They’re all different without trying to be. As long as they’re unselfconsciously being themselves, they can’t help but shine. It’s only later, when children are taught to compete, to strive to be better than others, that their natural light becomes distorted”.  ~Marianne Williamson

19558229-fairy-tail-forest-nymph-beautiful-sexy-woman-at-spring-garden-wearing-long-dress-sitting-on-blooming  Happy Earth Day, April 22, 2016

Connecting with our earth each day helps us to appreciate all the blessings nature provides for us.  On this Earth Day, let us commit to being guardians of the earth to keep it healthy and sustainable for our children and future generations.  We are all ‘earth keepers’ and are responsible for its care.

Each day find time to consciously connect with nature…the trees, animals, birds, insects and plants…to ‘know the earth’ deeply…

Knowing the Earth | Nancy Wood

To know the Earth on a first-name basis
You must know the meaning of river stones first.
Find a place that calls to you and there
Lie face down in the grass until you feel
Each plant alive with the mystery of beginnings.
Move in a circle until you discover an insect
Crawling with knowledge in its heart.
Examine a newborn leaf and find a map of a universe
So vast that only Eagles understand.
Observe the journey of an ant and imitate its path
Of persistence in a world of bigger things.
Borrow a cloud and drift high above the Earth,
Looking down at the smallness of your life.
The journey begins on a path made of your old mistakes.
The journey continues when you call the Earth by name

As a little girl I spent hours in my backyard lilac tree.  It was my private sanctuary where the lilac tree sheltered me gently and talked to me! The above picture brought back this lovely childhood memory.

Peacefully, Jane
