Finding genuine meaning…

Originally posted on Kum Nye Today:

It is in our heart center that our inner nature grows to fullness.

Once our heart center opens, all blockages dissolve,
and a spirit or intuition spreads throughout our entire body
so that our whole being comes alive.

It allows us to integrate our minds with our hearts and actions and we find genuine meaning in our lives.

We become naturally self nourishing, self motivating, and self confident.

Look at what is happening in your heart.

It is the essential preparation for experiencing the truth of our own lives.

This Week’s Mission: Permission to Excel

Originally posted on The Midnight Station:

Eloise Ristad quote

We cannot always convince ourselves that failure, in many cases, isn’t detrimental or disadvantageous. We are still frightened, anxious and panicked about it. But with those emotions, there is a price: we are constantly looking at the worst, focusing on what could go wrong, and ultimately expecting to fail. We do not give ourselves the resources to excel, because it isn’t our mind’s priority. Instead our mind is in overdrive, trying not to fail; therefore, it’s looking out for all the ways it could fail, rather than looking out for all the ways it could excel. This week, let’s challenge ourselves to have courage and faith in ourselves to do what we’ve always wanted to do. Let’s imagine all the wonderful possibilities and clear our minds of negative energy. When we give ourselves permission to fail, we, at the same time, give ourselves permission to excel.

Thought of the Day: Patience

Originally posted on The Midnight Station:

Benjamin Franklin Patience Will

Patience encompasses a great deal more than just waiting. It entails a keen determination to keep going past numerous difficulties. It involves a deep courage to have faith in our visions, dreams and imagination when the end is nowhere in sight. It requires a calmness to accept time as an uncontrollable phenomenon but to chase it nonetheless. Good comes to those who are patient, who persevere, and who are confident. 

He that can have patience can have what he will – Benjamin Franklin

Todays and Tomorrows

Originally posted on The Midnight Station:

live in the moment

Sometimes we spend too much time on tomorrow; we dream and work for the life we want to have and we worry and weep about ending up with the life we don’t want to have. I’m not going to say it’s a waste, but how often do we stop to look at today? Without today, we wouldn’t ever be able to appreciate our progress, ever reap the benefits of what we sow, or ever assess what works and what doesn’t. Today is the moment we feel, we start, we learn. Our tomorrows are built up of a number of todays. Once we master today, then we can take on tomorrow.

Share Happiness

Buddha Happiness quote

Sharing our happiness with the world is so simple. It is easily spread through a smile and a kind gesture. It is contagious whenever someone shares their passions and dreams. It is offered to another when we lend a hand or an ear. Our happiness isn’t devalued or diminished as a result. It only brings more happiness into the world. Then next time we need a lift, hopefully it’s right around the corner. Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.

Four Things to Give Up for Happiness and Success

Originally posted on The Midnight Station:

Let go balloon

What would you give to lead a happy and successful life? Maybe we should really be asking ourselves what we should give up. I know what you’re thinking, giving up is the last thing we should be doing, but here are a few suggestions of things we need to purge from our lives in order to keep ourselves motivated and on track:

  1. Give up the demoralising self-talk – Doubt, insecurity and anxiety are all natural emotions, but we cannot let them pull us down. We will never be free from obstacles, but we can be rid of the ones we create for ourselves. Open up your mind and believe in yourself.
  2. Give up the excuses – The first step to achieving anything is starting and with that comes trying. There will never be a perfect time and we will never feel fully prepared. We can only start where ever we are…

Thought of the Day: Life’s Responsibilities

Originally posted on The Midnight Station:

Chuck Palahniuk quote

It is both daunting and liberating to think that the world does not owe us anything, yet it lies generously at our feet. We hold the possibilities, the choices and the potential, as long as we’re open to taking them and exploring them. We will discover that everything worth having never comes easily, but it is our responsibility to inspire ourselves and to work hard for what we want. We will find ourselves in unexpected, uncomfortable or unappealing situations, but it is our responsibility to adapt to them or change them. We will be thrown boulders and stopped at barriers, but it is our responsibility to transcend the limitations and boundaries and to reach heights we didn’t think we could. Ultimately, we need to realise that the beauty of life stems from that very responsibility. We can paint our life in any colour and any style we desire.
