We spend our whole lives trying to seek love, to define and express love and hopefully to become love in the present moment. But turbulent times can turn us away from love and bring up our fears.  Fears change our actions and we have great difficulty forgiving those who harm us.  When we release our fears and anger and move our thoughts to connecting to the feelings of our heart, we begin to have the awareness that love is dwelling…always…in our heart.  Then forgiveness makes sense and all our senses respond in a new way to love.

All we have to do is tap into this loving energy, embrace and allow love to become the way of our being in our daily life.  This transformation into love consciousness is what each of us is here to do.  Michael Jackson understood about staying ‘in love’…with ourselves, with others, with nature and all the universe!  John Denver felt that love is an everlasting memory that shelters, embraces and at times is turbulent but love is in all the elements…it is everywhere and always there for us.

Love By Michael Jackson

“Love is a funny thing to describe. It’s so easy to feel and yet so slippery to talk about. It’s like a bar of soap in the bathtub-you have it in your hand until you hold on too tight.

Some people spend their lives looking for love outside themselves. They think they have to grasp it in order to have it. But love slips away like that wet bar of soap.

Holding on to love is not wrong, but you need to learn to hold it lightly, caressingly. Let it fly when it wants. When it’s allowed to be free, love is what makes life alive, joyful and new.  It’s the juice and energy that motivates my music, my dancing, everything.

As long as love is in my heart, it’s everywhere.”  from Dancing the Dream by Michael Jackson

 

John Denver – Perhaps Love…

John Denver also sought for the meaning love. One of my favourite songs about the meaning of love was sung by John Denver is “Perhaps Love”  This video show John performing in London where he explains the transformation that took place for him as his thoughts transformed from sadness to love and these words and music came to him while he was driving his car in California.

I hope you will take time to listen to his story and song~

 John Denver – Perhaps Love Lyrics
 
Perhaps love is like a resting place
A shelter from the storm
It exists to give you comfort
It is there to keep you warm
And in those times of trouble
When you are most alone
The memory of love will bring you home

 

Perhaps love is like a window
Perhaps an open door
It invites you to come closer
It wants to show you more
And even if you lose yourself
And don’t know what to do
The memory of love will see you through

Oh, love to some is like a cloud
To some as strong as steel
For some a way of living
For some a way to feel
And some say love is holding on
And some say letting go
And some say love is everything
And some say they don’t know

Perhaps love is like the ocean
Full of conflict, full of pain
Like a fire when it’s cold outside
Or thunder when it rains
If I should live forever
And all my dreams come true
My memories of love will be of you

Songwriters: J DENVER
Peacefully with love,
Jane

IN SILENCE FRONT COVER sm

Meditation now provides me with a shelter of protection, a place of peace and the courage to see each day as a “beginning…”   The messages in this book are manifestations of my discoveries about love, daily life, nature’s teachers and the infinite beauty of our mysterious Universe.  It is in silence, the place of quiet stillness within, that I discover the truth of the loving essence of the Divine Spirit that begins to merge with my inner self and then becomes reflected in each moment of my life.   It is in the experience of Divine Union of Oneness that  leads me from seeking for “something” to just “being”.  From this space, I am accepting and feel blessed for all my experiences and look forward to new adventures and the unknown.”  From In Silence, Discovering Self through Meditation, by Jane Rosalea Booth

Ten years later….

I wrote those words 10 years ago and they still ring true for me. I am still on a life journey of knowing my ‘self’ and shedding ways and habits that do not resonate with my inner self’s call to be loving and peaceful in each moment.  Still a challenge at times!  But in the past 10 years I have become more aware of those ‘experiences’ of my life that still hold wisdom and guidance to assist me through my next 10 years if I take the time for reflection and for letting go of past hurts or regrets.

I am looking forward to ‘new adventures’.  I am growing each day in greater trust that my life will unfold in mysterious ways, wonderful ways, greater ways than I can ever imagine!  It is this ‘unknown’ factor about life that keeps us moving forward even in our elder years if we stay open, flexible and never lose our curiosity about what life is all about.

In silence, in meditation, I discover my soul essence, my soul voice, my connection to all life, all spirit and all the love that permeates through the universe.  I open to the cosmic universal rhythms when I dance, sing, write poetry, walk by the water and woods or meditate.  I feel a deep purpose for my ‘being’ here in this moment.

I still meditate on the messages in my book, In Silence, Discovering Self through Meditation and receive new insights.  I am not the same person as I was ten years ago but what amazes me is how the words from my meditations have even greater richness and meaning for me now!  So I encourage you to write down your thoughts or ‘messages’ you receive after you meditate.  In my book, I share with you how to meditate and to manifest the life you desire!  Discover tools and insights to expand your views, to age well and to live with an open and accessible heart in the most challenging of times.

Peacefully Jane

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

“Still is your mind

Open is your heart

It is not anywhere, not anyone

It is lightness, love of Self

To radiate your love to others

To share your joy every moment

To be one in love

With All.”

Jane Rosalea Booth, In Silence, Discovering Self through Meditation

Meditation is the key to unlocking our inner wisdom that leads us to feeling peaceful and more aware of who we truly are.  Taking a few minutes, in silence, each day transforms your life dramatically.

During each meditation, breathe in and out to become relaxed and begin to let go of your daily stress and anxieties as your mind and body begins to relax.  Move your awareness to your heart and release your fears by asking spirit to dissolve them.   Fill your heart with the love that naturally flows inwards each time you mediate.  Open your heart to experience this love and soothe and relax in its warmth and beauty.  Feel yourself in a beautiful place, an inner sanctuary.  Enjoy this inner sanctuary within where there is only love, peace and stillness.  Stay there as long as you desire. Begin to experience an inner spiritual connection where you feel divinely loved in each moment.  Soak up all this loving energy and know that it is always presence to support you.  Feel deep gratitude for all your blessings.

Bring this loving energy back into your outer world…now share it with others…peace, love, compassion…

Peacefully, Jane

Happy New Year 2016 Everyone! 

May the New Year’s celebrations be full of love and joy…may we join together to create communities of diversity with love, understanding, harmony and peace that is shared by each heart…

“ When you have found the center within yourself that is the counterpart of the sacred space, you do not have to go into the forest…You can live from that center, even while you remain in relation to the world.” Joseph Campbell

Life is quite a journey that always presents us with opportunities to learn more about ourselves.  We may think that we know who we are, but something will happen that will reveal to us that we have more to learn to move into a place of peace. Most of our revelations about ourselves come from our relationships with our spouse, family or close friends but sometimes complete strangers will have a ‘message’ for us that helps us to evolve.

But we can miss these messages if we become blocked by getting caught up in wanting others to validate who we are or by wanting to be ‘right’. We want the approval or forgiveness of others and when we do not receive it, we can be weighed down by regrets and sometimes guilt. When this happens we have given away our personal power and our self-esteem lowers and even our motivation to change and grow can leave. We can enter into a shadow time where it is hard to see the light.

However, if we have learned to move inward to find a place within our consciousness where our true Essence is revealed, we can view who we truly are.  Our meditations can take us to this peaceful place where we can ask for guidance, forgiveness and healing and receive what our soul needs – unconditional love and compassion that heals and comforts us.  We can let go of our regrets, guilt and remorse and fill our hearts with Divine love, a love that is unconditional and omnipresent.  It is real, beautiful and beyond words or comprehension but we know this energy of love is what life is truly about.  It is why we are here and we are the ones to reveal it. We are here to reveal and share God’s love.

What is exciting is that millions of people are awakening and revealing this love.  We may not hear about all the loving and caring acts that take place in every moment because the media reveals so much ‘shadow’, but they are occurring and we are evolving more fully as loving beings. The light is shining in the darkest places…it is always present.

Do not try to love as if you are separate

You are not.

You are of God,

Part of the Tao.

You are within the landscape

You are elements of the seasons.

You are of both heaven and earth…

Hold true to God

Rest in the Tao

And you will be carried to where the future needs you.

                – Martin Palmer

 

Peace, Joy and Love in the New Year

7 Practices for Peacemakers
by: Deepak Chopra, M.D.
“When a person is established in nonviolence, those in his vicinity cease to feel hostility.”
— Patanjali

This book excerpt is from Peace Is the Way by Deepak Chopra.

The approach of personal transformation is the idea of the future for ending war. It depends on the only advantage that people of peace have over war-makers: sheer numbers. If enough people in the world transformed themselves into peacemakers, war could end. The leading idea here is critical mass. It took a critical mass of human beings to embrace electricity and fossil fuels, to teach evolution, and adopt every major religion. When the time is right and enough people participate, critical mass can change the world. Can it end war?

There is precedent to believe that it might. The ancient Indian ideal of Ahimsa, or non-violence, gave Gandhi his guiding principle of reverence for life. In every spiritual tradition it is believed that peace must exist in one’s heart before it can exist in the outer world. Personal transformation deserves a chance.

This program for peacemakers offers a specific practice for you to follow every day, each one centered on the theme of peace.

1. Sunday: Being for Peace

Today take five minutes to meditate for peace. Put your attention on your heart and inwardly repeat these four words: peace, harmony, laughter, and love.

2. Monday: Thinking for Peace

Today introduce the intention of peace in your thoughts. Take a few moments of silence, then repeat this prayer: “Let all beings be happy, loved, and peaceful. Let the whole world experience these things.”

3. Tuesday: Feeling for Peace

Today is the day to experience the emotions of peace. The emotions of peace are compassion, understanding, and love.

4.  Wednesday: Speaking for Peace

Today, the purpose of speaking is to create happiness in the listener. Have this intention: Today every word I utter will be chosen consciously. I will refrain from complaints, condemnation, and criticism.

5. Thursday: Acting for Peace

Today is the day to help someone in need. Help can take many forms. Tell yourself: “Today I will offer help without asking for gratitude or recognition.”

6.  Friday: Creating for Peace

Today, come up with at least one creative idea to resolve a conflict, either in your personal life or your family circle or among friends. Intend to create trust and eliminate hidden hostility and suspicion—the two great enemies of peace.

7.  Saturday: Sharing for Peace

Today, share your practice of peacemaking with two people. As more of us participate in this sharing, our practice will expand into a critical mass, reaching many instead of a few.

Have a peace filled day,

Peacefully, Jane
