Celebrating Gratitude

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gratitude_journal

I have been journaling my whole life.

I also like to write, blog and research.

Today I have reached the halfway mark of my daily “Be Great, Be Grateful: A Gratitude Journal for Positive Living” by Patternity.

I love poetry and blogging, I thing I’m nuts about the writing more than any specific element.

I like language, nuances, details, logic, reason, creativity, the narrative, the archetypal ideas, thoughts, feelings, beliefs, behaviour, being and people.

So, I am discovering I am grateful in the same passionate way.

I think I will simply carry on with my grateful journal or repeat it.

Partly, it has helped me focus my goals.

I am more concerned about being than doing.

Therefore my goal is to learn how to sleep better.

I believe in being better or happier being who I am.

I am not doing this for material gain or to gain anything.

I find it a challenge to put into words: do no harm but live a healthy life.

So I am celebrating all the above by sharing it with you.

Thanks for following my entry today.

The 14th Dalai Lama – Nobel Lecture

The 14th Dalai Lama – Nobel Lecture
— Read on www.nobelprize.org/prizes/peace/1989/lama/lecture/

Insight from the DALAI LAMA, “Peace can only last where human rights are respected, where people are fed, and where individuals and nations are free.” Today, the above Nobel Lecture, is a simple quote from the Dalai Lama. Yet, the lecture is available for all to read from the link above. Many people and great leaders support this effort towards peace. There are many Nobel lectures that outline this great need around the world for every human being on this planet. Perhaps, the study and practice of peace is a fundamental need for all of us.

Know Your Limit, Stay Within It

As a human being, one of the universal truths are to know yourself.

As a process, or opus, there are many chances and changes to learn and respect.

The good, bad and ugly make a beautiful song.

We fortunate ones sing throughout our lives.

Another truth is to forgive and forget.

We practice this song many hundreds of times before our end of days.

‘Truth and beauty, that is all’, we are forever being the student and teacher.

The ugly is just another side of beauty and a lie is a lie, is a lie.

There is real purpose within this house, we all live and die.

No truth is too small or insignificant…

Teacher Vs. Student: The Way

In the east, there is a mystical presence felt by those in the west. In this dialogue, the teacher shows the student how to find the power in breathing for compassion, simplicity and patience.

Teacher: You must breathe in your belly to calm your body. Or into your chest to warm yourself and accept your pain.

Student: how do I find balance, when do I breathe one way or the other?

T: Just breathe and ask me again when you know the answer.

Student: Will I ever know?

Going For Flow

Happiness is flow.

The outcome is produced through hard work at whatever comes naturally to you.

Your decision is key.

Fortunately, humanity is hard wired to become recipient, participant and generator.

When it happens we spend our resources and feel grateful that we have attained some self-mastery over our inner experience.

Go for flow, your life depends upon it.

Thank you Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

Universal Peace and Happiness

The Dalai Lama said, the ultimate source of peace is n the mind-which, far more than our circumstances, determines our happiness.

CBCT or Cognitively Based Compassion Training is the next big tool for teaching the trait of loving kindness.

Accordingly, the person learning to be more compassionate is the first to benefit.

So, even if you don’t love the world today,

even if you don’t love your enemy today,

You can learn to love yourself using CBCT.

Another words, you will be a source of peace and happiness in everyone’s life.

Do you want to try CBTC or learn how to be more peaceful and happy?
