“Watch your thoughts; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they become habits.
Watch your habits; they become character.
Watch your character; for it becomes your destiny.”

~The Upanishads

Weekly wisdom from Doreen Virtue

I absolutely love that she does this! Here’s some insight from Doreen Virtue and the fairies about setting your intentions for the week. If you have never used her oracle cards before, check them out. I use mine often (I have the Goddesses and the Archangels), and they are always a source of inspiration and clarity. Have a magical week!

“It’s not what you do that’s so important, it’s how much love you put into the doing.”

~Mother Teresa

Happiness is…

You are here in this lifetime because there was a need on Earth for you. Exactly you. Just as you are and who you are. The universe called you forth because there was a part that only you could play. That’s how important your life is.

As a 5th grader, I played Patty in my school’s production of “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown.” She’s not one of the more well-known Peanuts. And she’s not Peppermint Patty. She’s just Patty. In the big final song, Patty has one solo line to sing… “Happiness is playing the drum in your own school band.” Trust me when I tell you that I stepped into the spotlight and belted it with all my little heart.

This life is your moment in the sun, and the song you sing is you. If you really feel like belting it so that it resonates in every corner, be the fullest and most authentic expression of you that you can possibly be.

I mentioned before that Ahimsa (the Yama that I’m focusing on currently) is commonly interpreted as ‘non-violence.’ Sooo… I don’t yell at anyone or punch them in the face and I’m cool, right? Done and done.

Not so fast there, tiger…

Donna Farhi expands on the definition (very usefully, I think) by saying that Ahimsa is refraining from any act that would inhibit a being from growing to its fullest potential. Ground floor of that establishment, for me, is letting go of judgment. Judgment is not my business. It’s The Judge’s business. And guess what? The Judge loves all and forgives all, so it really must be none of my business to find someone guilty for being who they are.

I tend to have some unconventional ideas from time to time- not so much ‘mainstream.’ One of the most important lessons I’ve picked up along the way is that I don’t need everyone to agree with me. I don’t need to convert everyone to my way of thinking. I simply need to respect others’ right to be themselves and pray that they return the favor.

Sounds great, right? Easy enough… I’ll do that. But wait!! I kinda sorta left something out. Something that I find to be the most challenging part of the whole exercise. Unconditional acceptance has to begin within. You have to grow the seed before you can give away the tomatoes.

Unconditional acceptance is so critical to me as I evolve that I practice sending it to each of my trillions of cells. I meditate and pray to find guidance to my fullest potential and to master the Divine art of acceptance. To know my Self so that I may realize my purpose.

Letting go of the limitations and restrictions of my ‘reality,’ I’ve come to see the big picture- ie, we are all cells in the body of Source. Source sends unconditional acceptance to each of us. How crucial is it that the nerve cells in your body don’t wake up tomorrow and feel pressure to become bone cells? How important is it that the skin cells don’t decide they’re threatened by the muscle cells and need to eradicate them? Thank goodness they don’t. They each have their part to play and they play it.

That is just how important your life is.

Om Shanti.

Daily reminder

“Doing your best, you are going to live your life intensely. You are going to be productive, you are going to be good to yourself, because you will be giving yourself to your family, to your community, to everything. But it is the action that is going to make you feel intensely happy. When you always do your best, you take action. Doing your best is taking the action because you love it, not because you’re expecting a reward. Most people do exactly the opposite: They only take action when they expect a reward, and they don’t enjoy the action. And that’s the reason why they don’t do their best.”

~Don Miguel Ruiz, from The Four Agreements

11.11.11 – A special message for you

Written during an automatic writing exercise in a recent class. This is what was on the page when the exercise had finished… It’s not me, it’s Shakti (un-edited):

Cocoon. You are wrapped in a warm and loving cocoon. And you are safe always. You are held safely in my arms. You are protected as you evolve and grow. Worry not, my love. Release your fear. You are loved. You have always been loved and there is nothing that you have to do or say to receive this. It is yours. Always has been. Always will be. It has been there every step of the way. You needn’t fear any longer. Everything that has happened was chosen for you because you can take it. You have the strength and power to heal it, not just for yourself but for others and for the world. This is not a test. It is your hand-picked mission. But it was not given to you so that you would live in fear forever. It was given to you so that you may see your way to the light. So that you may see you were wrapped in that cocoon of light always. And then you may carry that message forth to others who are still struggling in the dark. You were chosen for this because you can take it, not because you were meant to live as a victim. Not because you’re meant to suffer because you’re meant to heal.

Namaste.
