weekend uplift: truth series

God bless this situation, I no longer resist.

There’s isn’t an answer I can come up in my head that may establish another’s validity. Their reality is unlimited, my perception of their reality is limited to my own experiences.

Even a fart isn’t as big a deal in different parts of the world, sometime, it is to some cultures and some people.

We are only what we can perceive, we perceive only what we think we know. But what if there are other possibilities out there? What if, there are more wonderful possibilities—ones which are expansive, joyous, and life-filling? 

What do we want to take a bite out of? What do we want to consume?

What we eat, see, and hear affects us on deeper levels than just the mere conscious? What became impregnated in my subconscious? 

Where do my actions stem from?

Where do my thoughts?

I believe 

I believe

I believe

I believe… 

What do you believe?

What do I believe?

What do we believe?

What are we creating?

Why?

Monday Motivation: Marie Kondo

Around the web, some are saying that the Marie Kondo* tidying up method is hurting physical book sales. I guess there’s a part in Marie’s book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing that states something about minimizing the amount of books you own. But the whole book is about getting rid of everything in your life that doesn’t “spark joy!”

If books “spark joy” you get to keep them —and you can recommend them too. So I recommend Marie Kondo’s book.

It’s been a couple years since I read The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, it’s not a book I continuously go back to, over and over, like Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert —I already have a natural ability to sort, minimize and organize so I easily internalized (and don’t need to keep going back to) Marie Kondo’s book.

But that doesn’t mean other people should forget about this book, or the Netflix special: TIDYING UP with Marie Kondo (direct Netflix link).

marie-kondo-netflix-special-tidying up

Marie Kondo’s words and method are crucial to embrace in this day and age of 24/7 on-demand shopping. We have the ability to clutter our every inch of space, and too many of us do. So it’s good that Marie Kondo, her books and Netflix special, are becoming so popularized, people need help sometimes —specially with letting go of things; material things that they worked so hard to buy.

But if the things no longer bring joy, they only weigh the soul down.

We need to focus on the things that “spark joy” —we must give those things our love and attention & remove all the rest.

Monday Motivation: Rodolfo Benavides

Esoteric author, Rodolfo Benavides (b. 1907 d. 1998) wrote many profound books about the mysteries of the human condition, and soul. These books include titles such as: Entonces seremos Dioses; Levantando la cortina; La visita del muerto; Dramáticas profecias de la Gran Pirámide; La escritura, huella del alma; La verdad está en las manos; Rumbos humanos; Torbellino de sombras; La visita del muerto; En la noche de los tiempo; Cuando Las Piedras Hablan Los Hombres Tiemblan.

It’s almost impossible to find and purchase a copy of any of Rodolfo Benavides’ books.

Rodolfo Benavides’ books have been out of print for decades. Back in January I tried finding a copy of Entonces seremos Dioses online; I checked Amazon, I check Barns & Noble, I scoured Google for hours and days…finally I found a copy on AbeBooks.com

A seller in Spain, Pliego had a copy and I bought it right away. The shipping would take months; the book should arrive by March the receipt officially stated. By May I still hadn’t received the book so I contacted the Pliego, they said they would investigate and get back to me. A month later and a few more email inquiries I got confirmation that the book had been lost in transit.

Where can I find a copy of Entonces seremos Dioses?

Entonces seremos Dioses was translated into English in 1975, it is titled Then We Shall Be As Gods. I’d love to get my hands on a copy of either version. I want to read all of Rodolfo Benavides parapsychological adventures!

Monday Motivation: a poem about meditation

Meditation is not reflection,

meditation is not flow,

meditation is re-connection;

reconnection to your mind, body and soul.

Your Soul is not your thoughts.

…your thoughts may not even be yours.

You are but the listener, the mere perceiver, the observer.

Are you listening?

Your heart is saying:

You are not your mind, it is solely a part of you. You are not your thoughts, they are clouds; sometimes they come and sometimes they go.

You are not your feelings, they are energy, they fuel you, they are mere tools —they help you navigate existence, but remember who’s in control.

It’s not the talker or the thinker or the thoughts inside your head.

Listen closely, oh so closely, you will hear your Soul instead.

It beats inside you, it breaths in life.

One last thing it’s just your body yet it’s a magnificent thing for it’s your vehicle for this existence and it helps to navigate your Being.

a Soul prayer from last week’s Monday Motivation:
I am in harmony with my inner being
I am in Harmony with my soul My human experience is  incredibly delightful, true traumas and turmoils I’ve overcome…everything I’ve faced has made me stronger. Thank you God for the guidance along the way. Thank you God for all of the grace in times of sorrow. Thank you God for lifting the veil and shinning a light on this Darma, this dream I’ve chosen…this wonderful life. I am incredibly grateful for everything, everything I’ve been able to handle, and embrace. I only grow stronger in faith, grace, and self-love; which consequently mirrors the world around. I am what I perceive. I am the narrative I tell me. I am conscious of one thought. I am one with God. I am one with God. I am one with God.
Amen.

Monday Motivation: begin again

Don’t do something that you don’t actually want to do.

Do the things you keep imagining you’re doing.
Have an idea? Have a vision? Manifest it.
Take actionable step to attain it. Baby steps work just fine —99.98% percent of babies learn to walk. Actually, I might be underestimating our species because even this guy with no legs learned to walk and he manifested his innermost dreams in life. Nick Vujicic (Wikipedia profile) is a painter, swimmer, skydiver, and motivational speaker; regardless of being born with no legs.
I practice what I preach. I like to walk my talk, so even thought it’s been months since my last Monday Motivation, here I go again.
I start anew, continue moving forward, one step at time. Some times I pause, but overall I keep going. Because it’s not over till the end. And I love to enjoy all of the in-between, life is full of gooey stuff in the middle.

It’s what makes life worth living.

1. I am grateful for beautiful sunsets.
2. I am grateful for my church.
3. I am grateful for my students.
4. I am grateful for my home.
5. I am grateful for my life.
6. I am grateful for another chance to begin anew. Everyday is a new day. Everyday I am thankful for this and other things.
7. I love you.

Thanks for sharing this 21st century with me.

Happy New Year.
Happy new consciousness.
Happy New You.
Namaste

Monday Motivation: sweet dreams

I love children’s books. I love reading to children. So, I started turning all of my favorite storybooks into videos because I enjoy it, and because I strongly believe we need to offer our kids more content of value.

I may not be Mr. Rodgers, and I know children are not dumb. They are little human sponges, just soaking up everything they hear, see and feel. They really don’t need exuberant, loud and fantastical programming like what is shown in so many kids shows these days.

Calm, reflective and slow programming works just as well —and perhaps better.

What kind of humans do we want to co-created?

I don’t think any of us want the next generation to be manic, running around in a world that just won’t stop.

Can we all just slow down and breath a while? What are we really rushing for?

There is nothing to rush for. We will all get to the finish line eventually. But some of us will enjoy the journey more than others. Some of us will savor each bite and taste every flavor, and we will rest in utter peace because we have made space to fulfill our hearts true desires.

My heart desired to make some children’s videos. Been making content for kids as a hobby. Just completed my first playlist, a sweet compilation of ten children’s storybooks for any occasion, or for bedtime —to help send them off into deep, restful sleep.

May the child in each of us enjoy deep slumber.

Sweet dreams.

Monday Motivation: break the cycle

 

how-to “break the pattern”

these are just three of the ones I use:

1) Conscious THOUGHT GUIDANCE -once I become aware when my Saboteur is talking.

2) MEDITATION.

3) and, WRITING I guess a form of “timeline writing” helps me pinpoint where the Original Wound was implanted…

Just a few of the methods I’m incorporating to finally BREAK my self-imposed (through early programming) Glass Ceiling. To break out of the cycle.

With continued work,
one day, I’m just bound to figure this out!
🤷‍♀️
