Ave 2014...

"Everything about yesterday has gone with yesterday.
Today, it is needed to say new things."

music as the reset button...

Ah, Christmas Day!
Every year, around mid-morning I usually "see" all the wrapping paper 
that now lies in tatters on the floor around the Christmas tree, 
children busy playing with their new gifts,
and all the good food that is being prepared for families everywhere -
 particularly in America.

While I am happy that other people get so much out of this holiday 
I personally don't invest a whole lot of energy in it any more.
After a noon meal of roast chicken, baked potatoes, 
and steamed kale, and topped off with pecan pie, 
I was ready for a nice long nap on the living room couch
 along with my two kitties.

In spite of not really getting into the holiday festivities
 it still feels like a holiday to me so no work related activities today.
 I felt like seeing if anything would catch my eye on Netflix streaming, 
and happened across the movie "Frequencies".
I highly recommend this movie. One of the more important lines in the movie is 
"Music is the reset button. In particular, the music of Mozart." 
Mozart's music helps us unify our individual frequencies.

mind like still water...

"We can make our minds so like still water that beings gather around us, 
that they may see their own images,
 and so live for a moment with a clearer perhaps even fiercer life 
because of our quiet."

  ~William Butler Yeats


"Develop a peaceful spirit, 
and thousands around you will be saved."

~St. Seraphim of Sarov

yesterday is now...

"It's good to leave each day behind
Like flowing water, free of sadness,
Yesterday is gone and its tale told,
Today new seeds are growing."
~ Rumi

collisions with the Infinite...

I came across a facebook post about Suzanne Segal, 
and as it happens sometimes I feel somehow electrically compelled 
to follow up for more information. I want to read the book she wrote. 
It's on my amazon wish list. If I still feel strongly that I want to read it I can buy it in a couple days. Or, maybe tomorrow, or this evening. But, best to wait a little
 to see if the feeling persists beyond this now to a future now.


One day in 1982, while boarding a bus in Paris,  27 year old  Suzanne Segal experienced a sudden shift in her consciousness. She described the experience in her book, Collisions With the Infinite:
"I lifted my right foot to step up into the bus and collided head-on with an invisible force that entered my awareness like a silently exploding stick of dynamite, blowing the door of my usual consciousness open and off its hinges, splitting me in two. In the gaping space that appeared, what I had previously called 'me' was forcefully pushed out of its usual location inside me into a new location that was approximately a foot behind and to the left of my head. 'I' was now behind my body looking out at the world without using the body's eyes."

on letting go and getting on with it...

As we get closer to the end of 2014 the following message 
from a facebook friend spoke so clearly to me that I felt to share it... Sarah
AA Gabriel´s Daily Message ~ Tuesday December 16, 2014

If you could see the innate mastery of each and every soul – their complete competence to have the exact life experiences their souls wish to have – you would never again see anyone as being wrong. You would then be freed up to concentrate on your own experiences and your own creations, which would be wisely putting your focus on the only thing that you do have control over.

Your concern over what others are doing is such a distraction! Letting that go allows you to have so much more energy to pour into your own inspirations and experiences, which will always lead you to far greater joy, freedom and self expression. Be energetically selective, Dear Ones. Send love to others, advise and guide if asked, other than that, allow them to be the experts on themselves and concentrate on what you do have control over – your own life expression.

miss takes...


We are all worthy of the best life has to offer. 
This has nothing to do with us as individuals.
Or, us as a whole.
It has everything to do with Love. 
Love would only offer us the best,
 because of the nature of Love.
Love is good and beautiful.
We mis-create otherwise, by miss-take.

from poverty thinking to abundance thinking...

For most of 2014 I have been pondering thoughts about the scarcity principle,
 and how to get past it once and for all time. 
This morning I was re-reading a blog post by Martha Beck about Overhelpers Anonymous, 
and as it so often happens I found myself reading more of her posts,
 and stumbled across the one about "When and How to Say Enough",
 and moving from "just in case" to "just in time"....
In this one blog post I found my answer! 
See if it speaks to you as well - if you are experiencing lack, that is.

inner Light...

"Be grateful for your life, every detail of it,
and your face will come to shine like a sun, and
everyone who sees it will be made glad and peaceful."
~ Jalal al-Din Rumi~
