Happy Pono New Year!

I have a sign written on the wall in my room that says:

"Everything is Pono (perfect)
until we tell ourselves otherwise"

Warmth in your Igloo, Oil in your Lamp, Peace in your Heart and Seeds in your Jar!

“May you have warmth in your igloo, oil in your lamp, and peace in your heart!” 
Eskimo proverb

& seeds in your jar!!!  This year I started onto this different kind of gift-giving before Christmas. I think I was inspired when my sons girlfriend told me her parents got her & her brother a gift for every day of December. & I thought of the Advent calenders and thought what a great idea.. So I started getting these small things for James and giving him 'advent' gifts (but I know I am totally corrupting the word, need one better)  These gifts I decided should be small unexpected, thoughtful things, not expensive and not required, not even every day, but most days.. like a truffle, or I bought him some dusting gloves (& actually used one! lol), and this one in particular turned out to be very useful.. in fact its already time to go refill it.  I took a bottle that I had and filled it with different seeds. Then gave it to him to shake up and I pour some in our green smoothies every morning.  This addition to the green smoothie makes it stay with you longer.  & the seeds are all so good for you!!

Love. Happiness. Spiritual Growth

Love is Within

At level 500 which is reached my 4% of the population is the capacity for actual love. At 500 love takes on a different experiential reality. Its not the emotion of love.  When people talk about love they're talking about an emotion  that which goes from this to that, I love you, You love me, and therefore it can be lost. That person can stop loving you and if that person is the source of your happiness now you're gonna be quite desperate and of course love relationships that go downhill  y'know often result in suicide and homicide in other words that can cause quite a violent reaction. So one is always vulnerable so to be in love in that sense then your putting your happiness outside of yourself. As you get to the 500s now the source of happiness is not outside yourself but comes from within, so love calibrated at level 500 now changes into a way of being in the world. Spiritual love is a way of being, its the way you are within the world, what you are to the world, its now beyond emotion. It doesnt depend on emotion and its independent of the world, if the other person loves you so much the better and if they dont you continue to love them anyway. So I love my kitty no matter what and if my kitty suddenly stops loving me thats the kittys loss because I'll still love the kitty  y'know and he'll get out of his bad mood. So, we become that which sort of nutures life.The energy field of somebody in the 500's now begins to radiate out and support life.

Happiness is Within

The best way to handle a prayer for a Ford is to surrender your desire for a Ford.
Why did you want the Ford? Because you think that happiness is something outside of yourself. If I have the new Ford then I will feel successful and then I will feel happy so all desires then have  associated with them the unconscious belief system that they will bring us happiness  but that makes us very dependent on the external world and so our happiness is always vulnerable and therefore we live in fear all the time because if the source of happiness is outside of yourself your always in a weakened possibly victim position. If the source of happiness then is self fulfillment within oneself then no one can take it away from you.

Divinity is Within

So people say how can I grow spiritually. Do I have to go somewhere? Do I have to get a guru? Do I have to join a meditation group? Do I have to recite mantras or what? No you dont have to do that at all. Its so simple that its overlooked all the time. Its a decision to be loving and kind towards all of life including your own at all times no matter what. To be forgiving, to be gentle, to be that which is supportive of live so that becomes not what you do, but what you are. You become that which supports life, supports all endeavors, it encourages those who need encouragement and it becomes the energy of life itself so it becomes almost like the manifestation of the divine mother as well as the divine father, so its the merging of the two y'see. That which is nurturing at the same time that which is demanding of excellence.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas!!!
I have been having an incredible Christmas and want to share some of it here. Often with Days, Years, Events, Holidays.. I get themes happening.. this Christmas my Main theme seemed to be that it wasnt about the day itself that was important, but what the person had done and been all year through that was important.. the gifts (although I got amazing gifts!!) definitely seemed to take back stage. It was so fun opening them with the group of people around me and there were lots.. but it just was no not really about the presents to me, it was all about being with these people and how important they were to me.. and the Love of course. But so many times it came up how someone had given someone a small gift, a token, as they do so much all through the year.. esp my Mom, who has spent a phenomenal amount of time at the hospital and taking care of people. But really its all about the love.. Everything!!! Its all about the love!
Be the One
Be the one who smiles with your spirit and warms the heart of others.
Be the one who lovingly commits random acts of kindness.
Be the one who feeds parking meters anonymously.
Be the one who listens, really listens to someone in need while
Holding the energy of love and knowing they can do it.
Be the one that feeds a hungry person.
Be the one who embraces the angels and shines their
Love around the world.
Be the one who knows they are loved, they are love and
They are lovable.
Be the one who allows the magic and wonder of the season to
Follow you throughout the year.

this was written by Susan Gregg, mom sends me the greatest inspiration all the time. & I have been thinking that I really should come and post more of it here. Cause it always makes me feel so good.

So Shine on the Love, and keep the Magic alive!!!

..and I have to run, cause my daughter just came back.. and I want to go hang ; ) But I will be back.. cause I have to tell you about my presents, or at least very quickly.. I got a new camera!!!!! I am so happy!! & this incredible book of inspiration I want to share. Definitely blog material.. I think someone very influential wants me to stay here writing!!! & I always feel happy when I do it, so  Be back Soon!!! Merry Christmas!!!! xo
