Learning to find the blue sky called NOW

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

How do you find now? By letting go of the past and giving up your ideas of the future.
How do you do that? You just let go of controlling your thoughts and emotions.
How do you do that? You sit still in a comfortable position and you become the watcher and feeler of your thoughts and emotions. You give up controlling your feelings and thoughts and you let them run wild until they have no more energy, they begin to slow down and moments of peace, acceptance and stillness appear. “Hey you are meditating!”

While you meditate you might see your mind as a beautiful blue sky and your thoughts are the clouds that travel across the sky blocking the light. There are times when the clouds turn grey and fill with rain, hail, lightening and strong winds making the world dark and forlorn. But behind all that noise and movement sits the beautiful blue sky and glowing yellow sun.

This is where your fears of lack show up and where your judgements of the rich and poor surface.

I have had many lessons over the years in giving. I have attended prosperity classes, read more books that I can count and have endeavored to place into practice whatever resonated with me. The one lesson that I always found that worked the best is the act of giving, I always come back to it as a major technique for prosperity. This lesson has been reinforced within my psych and heart time and time again.

Only recently I have returned to ‘consciously’ giving once more. Over the last 2 years I have been utlising my savings. I had put aside some money from a house sale, and have taken the time to relax and focus on my spiritual transformation, a sort of semi retirement.LotusPinksm Continue reading
