Life Gives You What You Need

november

“Life will give you whatever experience is most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness. How do you know this is the experience you need? Because this is the experience you are having at the moment.”

Wherever You Are, Be There Totally

“Are you so busy getting to the future that the present is reduced to a means of getting there? Stress is caused by being ‘here’ but wanting to be ‘there,’ or being in the present but wanting to be in the future. It’s a split that tears you apart inside. To create and live with such an inner split is insane. The fact that everyone else is doing it doesn’t make it any less insane. If you have to, you can move fast, work fast, or even run, without projecting yourself into the future and without resenting the present. As you move, work, run – do it totally. Enjoy the flow of energy, the high energy of that moment. Now you are no longer stressed, no longer splitting yourself in two. Just moving, running, working – and enjoying it. Or you can drop the whole thing and sit on a park bench. But when you do, watch your mind. It may say ‘You should be working. You are wasting time.’ Observe the mind, smile at it.:-)

Wise Words

“Life’s disappointments may be preparation for something even more significant in our lives. And, this belief has the best chance of coming true when you make a demonstrated commitment to learn and grow from your present day circumstances…Is there something going on in your life right now that may be preparing you for what’s next? Think about it. What if your current challenge is a call to action – the kind of action that will prepare you for the next phase of your life? What are you being invited to learn? What qualities of character are trying to be strengthened or developed? Where do you need to take more responsibility in your life?”

Thoughts

“Thoughts are the cause of all suffering. If you stay in a job that deadens you, it’s a thought that keeps you there. If you find yourself stuck, it’s because of a story. Any thought that keeps you from being happy is a lie! If you want to feel freedom, question your thoughts. Change your thoughts, and you can transform your life.”

Inspirational Wisdom

“People like to compare themselves with a single aspect of another person, which always makes me laugh. Because if you’re really going to compare yourself to anyone else, you need to consider her whole life. Your friend might have more money, a better career, nicer clothes, but she also might be struggling with her marriage or her health. What would happen if instead of wasting your energy comparing yourself, you asked, Who am I? What are my unique gifts and abilities? And how am I using them? Competing is outer-focused; creating is inner-focused. Competing is being a sheep; creating is being a shepherd. Remember that you are a human being, not a human doing or a human having. So the real question isn’t, What are you here to do or have? It is, Who are you here to be? Focusing on that journey is going to be much more fulfilling than wasting energy trying to keep up with what everyone else is up to. “
