It is a cold day here in Meaford and the snow squalls are blowing by our windows.  For my meditation this morning, I listened and watched the beautiful photos in a video that has a beautiful song by Bliss called “Love, Peace and Wisdom”.  My thoughts after meditating were that wisdom is not something we seek, but what we become when we love deeply and love becomes our way of being in each moment. It is then we experience peace in the our life.

May this song lift your heart and bring some peace on this winter’s day.

Here is the link to the song. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sp_Ewn6iQSM&t=95s

Bliss – Love Peace and Wisdom lyrics

If Love were a bird, I would stroke her bright feathers
Then I’d watch her fly free, cross the still of the dawn

And if Peace were a mountain, we’d gather around her
To bathe in her silence, her power, her call

If Wisdom could sing or whisper his secrets
Eternity teaching the ways of the free

In my mind I can see them, I hear them and I feel them
For Love, Peace and Wisdom are all part of me

If Love has her freedom, and Peace her expression,
Surely Wisdom will grow like a flower in bloom

The seed has been planted, and tended and watered
By the prayers of the hopeful and the tears of the brave

We long to return to that place of still waters
And sit on the banks under some shady tree

In my mind I can see it, I hear it and I feel it
And Love, Peace and Wisdom are all that we need

Some call me a dreamer, some will call me a seeker
One who follows her stars on a quest for the truth

But every believer holds a deep hidden memory
Of a time when the earth was a flower in bloom

We long to return to that place of still waters
And sit on the banks under some shady tree

In my mind I can see it, I hear it and I believe it
And Love, Peace and Wisdom are the three golden keys

Peacefully, Jane

In my meditations, I see light energies, sometimes glowing or sparkling, and they seem to guide me inward into my quiet place where I feel loved and peaceful.  After I meditate, I write what I remember or sometimes poems flow.  I don’t always understand the messages or poems that I received after my meditations.  It may take more reflection to have new insights, but whatever I write I see as a gift and as an expression of love that dwells in my heart.  In these chaotic days, it really is a gift to find peace within!  Stellar Light is always flowing…taking us into deeper knowing…

Stellar Light

The rose unfolds into the stellar light

Wisdom blooms with tenderness

In the depths of timelessness

Within the halls of knowing

Notes of cosmic essences play

Rays of illumination bloom

by Jane Rosalea Brown, January 15, 2014

Have a ‘stellar’ day!

Love and peace Jane

The Wisdom Principle14713605_1146992388681166_752261687634770641_n

Do you want to be wise? Surprisingly, many people would shrug off such a question. They want to be other things instead – practical, successful, rich, respected – that don’t involve wisdom, which is reserved for old people, the wise gray heads of society. And yet the way someone’s life turns out depends on making wise choices. Every culture that values consciousness also values wisdom, so the topic is worth discussing over several posts, I think.

What is wisdom, exactly? Mature awareness. This isn’t defined by a set of rules. You can’t equate it with being cautious, prudent, and conservative (the behavior pattern of “wise old men”) or with any other fixed quality. Wisdom is judged by the things you devote your mind to.

Someone who wants to be wise has the following traits:

  • The desire to be real
  • The courage to step into the unknown
  • A refusal to be fooled by illusions
  • The need to feel fulfilled
  • The ability to go beyond material satisfactions
  • An intimation of other levels of existence

I think the most valuable trait is the first, the desire to be real. The opposite of “real” is “illusory,” and many external forces influence us to choose illusion over reality. They hold out a false sense of happiness rooted in money, possessions, and status, for example, and tell us that they best way to avoid the painful side of life is to devote hours to various distractions. But the world’s wisdom traditions teach something very different, that there is a level of the mind where the potential for creativity, intelligence, peace, and joy is unlimited.

If you devote yourself to finding this level of the mind you are a seeker after wisdom.

“Seeking” sounds less old-fashioned than wisdom to modern ears. Although given a religious connotation, seekers don’t have to be looking for God, and if they are, the goal will be reached in the same place as wisdom, their own consciousness (following Jesus’s dictum that the kingdom of heaven is within). Wisdom leads to wise choices, and here there is a pattern that marks the seekers of wisdom

Wise Choices

The decisions that shape a conscious life

When you are afraid and anxious, don’t trust the voice of fear.

When you are in a chaotic situation, find a way to bring order and calm.

When faced with an angry conflict, make no decision until the anger has subsided.

When meeting resistance to your ideas, consider the viewpoint of those who resist you.

When you are tempted to condemn someone else, see if what you hate in them is hidden away in yourself.

When you are in trouble, decide if the situation is one you should put up with, try to fix, or walk away. Having decided, act accordingly.

When you know the truth, speak up for it.

What links these choices is a trust in your own awareness and a refusal to be pulled this way and that by the chaos of the outer world. But I realize that modern life seems unsuited to the image of a wise savant sitting alone in his Himalayan cave or monk’s cell. That image is misleading, because the best way to live is wisely, bringing the highest rewards.

Here we are at the beginning of a New Year with lots of people promoting programs to change us, to help us create the life we want by encouraging us to live fully and to make affirmations or intentions about how we would like to be and how we can be our authentic Self. I am in this group of people with Conscious Aging that starts in April.

Now all these ‘intentions’ and programs can be good for us. Positive energies bring positive results in our lives.  Affirmations keep us focused on our visions or dreams. Self- reflection and meditation takes us within and helps our to calm and feel connected spiritually.  But sometimes we can feel bombarded by all these suggestions no matter how well-meaning these practices may be.

However, I am going to offer my Jane’s Peaceful Path tip. For today, stop trying to be something different.  Everything in this moment is what is best for you…even though it may not appear that way.  For today, simply stay in love…all day…every moment…with everyone you meet, with nature, with all life but most of all, with you.  For today, observe how your life is unfolding as you stay in love…magical things happen when we stay in love.

Here is a lovely video that I have played at my retreats…just what we need to stay in love! Enjoy

“If Love were a bird, I would stroke her bright feathers

For Love, Peace and Wisdom are all part of me

If Love has her freedom, and Peace her expression,

Surely Wisdom will grow like a flower in bloom

The seed has been planted, and tended and watered

By the prayers of the hopeful and the tears of the brave

We long to return to that place of still waters

And sit on the banks under some shady tree

In my mind I can see it, I hear it and I feel it

And Love, Peace and Wisdom are all that we need

Some call me a dreamer, some will call me a seeker

One who follows her stars on a quest for the truth

But every believer holds a deep hidden memory

Stay in love so peace and wisdom will flow.

Have a beautiful, loving day,

Peacefully, Jane

Wisdom of Eagle

Soar, soar, soar
To the highest mountain top and beyond
Soar, soar, soar
To height awareness with new perceptions
Soar, soar, soar
With the spirit and love of timelessness

Soar with Eagle to greater knowing of the Universe. Feel free in spirit to fly with ease.  Rise above and observe your world with clearness, sharpness, fearlessness.

Secretly we spoke,

that wise one and me. I said,

Tell me the secrets of the world.

He said, Shhh

Let silence tell you

the secrets of the world

~ Rumi

Explore your inner knowing to discover the ‘secrets of the world’ through daily meditation.  You will be amazed by what is revealed to you when you relax, quiet your mind and listen to your heart.  A wise person once said to me that I already have all the tools…the canvas, the paint and the brushes…to create the world I want.

We also have all the ‘secrets’ within to allow our true being to evolve into a loving, creative and peaceful person.  The world needs each of us to make this transformation.  Allow the wisdom you hear, see or feel during your meditations to assist you in your daily life.

Bring your wisdom and light into the world…don’t keep is a ‘secret’ any longer.

Peacefully, Jane
