If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, “Thank You”, that would suffice. – Meister Eckhart

With Love, Gratitude, and Appreciation – Everyday make a mental list of everything you have to be grateful for. It will remind you of whats important. Like being grateful for your breath, and the fact that your alive. Give Thanks for everything that happens to you,  and find the good in it all. Develop this attitude of gratitude for all things, and the result for this work will be to find pure joy. Because a grateful person is always a happy person, and being happy is the life that we all seek.

Just a thought… And, thank you for reading my blog 🙂

Life IS Beautiful

Sure my blog is full of idealism, seeing the world full of happy, joyous people, living their life with passion. I continually spew words of love and faith, in the hope to that you will see it too.   I realize the five o’clock news, and your life may tell you a different story, but where does that get you… 

Nothing says that you can’t see the world as wonderful as you want it to be.  Nothing says you can’t believe that everything is getting better, moment by moment, day by day. The more you focus on whats good in your life, the easier it gets. I mean, Do you want to be happy? Then, where is your focus?

Miracles ARE around us everywhere, simply with the blue sky, spring flowers, old friends laughing, musicians playing, and much, much more. If you look – you will see life as truly being beautiful.

I write to help put yours/my attention on this big beautiful world that we live in. That’s what I do here on this blog. That’s where I want my focus. You get to decide where to put your intention… What world do you want to see? What world do you want to live in?

Mindfully Ignoring…

“Mindfulness is the energy of being aware and awake to the present moment. It is the continuous practice of touching life deeply in every moment. To be mindful is to be truly alive and at one with those around us. Practicing mindfulness does not require that we go anywhere different.”  –Thich Nhat Hanh

Sometime the energy that it takes for us to be mindful, get’s diverted when the actions of another are hurtful, in the present moment. Our minds begin to wonder to past hurts, and negative thinking.  The trick, I believe, is to learn to ignore a lot more.  May be ignore is the wrong word, may be it is better said; to stay in the present moment, but to choose not to give “it” any energy.  Leave the pettiness of the moment behind you. Don’t waste a minute on “it”. In fact, don’t give “it” another thought.   Stand taller, be a better person, and choose to give your mindful energy to something positive around you.

Just as I’m writing this the door bell rings, the dog starts barking, the kids are talking, music has been turned on, and all of a sudden, there really is just a whole lot going on… when a thought of wanting some quiet time for meditation, reflection, and just a chance to finish this blog post mindfully flash through. So starting over, I reread what I wrote, and see so clearly, that we really don’t have to go anywhere different.  Learning to ignore a lot more, does serve us in many situations. I guess “ignore” was the right word after all.

So I’m mindfully going to finish this blog post, in a happy state of mind.  Celebrating the fact that I’m lucky to be alive, I have time to write, a computer, the internet, and sooooooo much more.

So today and all days, use your energy to celebrating all that is good around you now, and ignore the rest!

Life just got a whole lot better…
