Non-Resistance…

Sitting At The Window…Cloud-Gazing – Photography by Toni Roberts

Life is a series of adversities followed by abundant blessings…which cycle right back into adversity…the sun rises and then darkness descends…such is the rhythm and nature of human existence. We who would hope to emerge unscathed from Life’s ups and downs must learn to bend…non-resistance…acceptance…lest we be broken by the ill-winds of misfortune

is learning to simply…

BREATHE

and to let LOVELOVE...

in...as…and through

when we have mastered that…

we shall have learned…

how to LIVE

The Power Of Focused Attention:

Night Prayers – Altar Arrangement & Photograph by Toni Roberts

 

Is there something in your lifemindbody…that you no longer wish to experience?

Try withdrawing your attention from it each time that you find yourself thinking about it.

Instead of dwelling mentally and imaginatively on what you don’t wantswitch your thoughts and inner attention to something about yourself or your life…that makes you feel good.

Do this a “zillion” times a day if you must.

Be patient.

And one day you will suddenly realize:

  • the worrisome condition, circumstances, or person(s) have disappeared
  • you were so involved in newjoyfullife-giving thoughts that you can’t even remember when the troublesome condition…situation…or person…simply vanished

 

You can change your entire life and conditions of the body by simply changing the focus of your attention from what you do not wish to experience…to that which you do.

I’ve been practicing this for at least forty years now…

and although my life has never been trouble-free

I’m still standing

without a walker…or joint replacements

still youthfulvibrantvigorous

and useful

and squeezing every joyful drop of juice I can…

from this mysterious and mystical experience called human life on planet earth

 

(a bit more hard-earned wisdom from this very joyful Elder for you to take

or leave…)

If You Don’t Rule Your Money…

it damn sure will rule you…

 

and if you let insecurity

doubt...

fear

lust

or

desire take over…

 

your ass will surely be grass

 

a bit more hard-earned wisdom along this “trek”  to wholeness…

Abundance…

the land sunday 6 26 16 059

“The Land” Photo Nine by Toni Roberts

 

is the natural state of things…

look at the lavish excesses of Nature…

 

it is time for you to get out of your own way…

for it is you

blocking the natural flow of abundance as and through you…

 

remove those stubborn blocks of feardisbelief…and doubt

open up…receive

 

rejoice in the natural abundance of being
