Dreaming a New Canvas into Reality

With a reality painted into existence, as thoughts have come to fruition. Whether it is as we saw it or it requires a bit of tweaking to our liking…it is all possible to see. Distraction…oh the many distractions of the day…keeping us from seeing clearly to what the Canvas should like.

In reality there is no perfect Canvas but an interpretation of the Canvas. Seeing the Canvas as one way or the other remains in our hands. Sitting quietly, embracing silence of the mind, releasing fear of what may or may not take place.

Letting fear enter our mind, allowing it to be, and letting it pass. Whether we feel the fear or we see the end results of the fear makes no difference…we merely need to tackle the possibility of our own self-doubt that a new reality is at hand.

Allowing the mind to witness the fear, we look to the heart for guidance. Entering the heart we enter a new realm of possibilities…allowing what may seem dismal to be transformed into a beautiful painting of our reality.

Sitting quietly. Bringing our attention to breath.

Alone and afraid quickly passes into infinite possibilities, allowing hope to take hold of our brush. With every dream, every thought, a new stroke of brilliance is painted into reality.

Stepping into the Canvas with attention to our dreams. With attention upon our dreams we are dreaming a new Canvas into reality. It is ok to sit quietly, it is ok to be busy all the time…merely a choice. Our choice is to be happy…so we align with what brings us happiness.

Creating a New Canvas

Our thoughts project out into our days. Depending the thoughts, dependent of our days. Change these thoughts to align with a Grandeur Canvas and the Universe shall respond, creating a beautiful canvas throughout the day. No matter what is thrown at it, beauty is reflected.

What if another challenges you? Attacks you? Talks about you? Let them…remaining focused on what matters. Our happiness can be deflected as soon as we turn our attention to those causing disruption. It is only disruption if attention is given. Ignored and the day continues to paint as beautifully as it was written.

Be with whatever comes into the field of reality, be with your canvas no matter what…allowing feelings to come and go. It is in our ability to ebb and flow within our own Canvas we are healed. It is within our thoughts we are creating a New Canvas…Ani Po

Ever-Lasting Life

Change is all around us, constantly moving new realities. It is our human species who gets stuck in concept of change. We fight over evolution versus creation, change or stagnant beliefs. For it is our stagnant belief superiority over another…through our teachings or our beliefs. Merely an illusion of self and our own reality of change.

Those who embrace change are at the pinnacle of ever-lasting life. Those who refuse change live a painful death…Ani Po

For it is in the very essence of evolution and change we give birth to new ideas or realities. Without new ideas there are no new realities or understanding. Remain stuck in a belief and our reality remains as it is believed. Allow it to change with the natural progression of the Universe and we are forever changing in the grand spectrum of reality.

The thoughts still remain from a response of being ‘doomed for all eternity.’ It is my humble opinion It is self-inflicted…not given to us by any other means but through the self-defeating thoughts. We are not doomed by universal forces but by self-defeating thoughts of nowhere to turn.

At the Center of the Universe

The other day I found myself at another crossroads to self-healing. Letting go of even more ‘stuff,’ finding myself at “now what.” Letting go of this as well, knowing it is not necessary to worry about will become of my days but instead how am I going to enjoy.

During meditation I was shown a huge galaxy extending on for eternity, as if looking through a giant Hubble space telescope and I was seeing beginning of time. Realizing I was at the center of this galaxy, I began to take note. I was sitting in the vast openness of this galaxy and it was all spinning around me.

Looking back to childhood, reflecting on how I got to my current location in time, there was always a self-guidance about the self. Knowing self-defeating thoughts or conditioned response to how or what I should become, I let go of this self-guidance system within. Accepting it once again…I wonder what is to come.

It is strange though, as my thoughts are no longer concerned for my own but for a higher purpose, asking what is to become of those around me. For I am at the center of the Universe and Creator has given me everything needed for this day…now I see…I see a future of peace and joy.

No longer worried about what will be of self but of humanity, asking yet again…How might I serve? For it is in servitude our gifts are presented to the world around us. Remaining in our space of happiness, no matter what happens around us, we are allowing others to see there is a possibility for a brighter day ahead. I stop for a moment, from this writing, reflecting on what someone recently told me…”We are not all given a choice to choose happiness.” Continuing…”so if someone chooses not to be happy, are they damned for all eternity?”

This caused great reflection with only one solution…we all have a choice. We can choose to remain in our own reality, never seeking something brighter or we can choose to seek…seek, and we shall find. Often times with the helpfulness of another or kindness of the same, we are given hope to those brighter days. I do not believe we are damned for all eternity, we merely do not know any other way. Anger and/or fear keep us bound to a belief that there is no hope for us.

We are at the center of our own universe. If we choose to remain there, filling it with death and despair…then that is all we shall see. However, change the perspective, change the lens to reality and a new reality is born. Just as witnessed in my visions of new realities being born, the cosmos exploded…giving birth to another galaxy.

Stepping into the Canvas hovering at the center of the Universe. For in this day we are given a choice…a choice to see only our short-comings or a higher perspective of Love in all things around us. For it is in the lens we use to view our galaxy that gives us a new perspective…Ani Po

Shutting Down

I will be honest…there are many days I feel I am done posting within the Canvas, but then someone reaches out in need and my quill begins freely writing what is needed for the day. Letting go of what I feel should or should not happen, I release the words back to the universe (and the Internet), knowing they will find their way to those in need.

Letting go of my own feelings, there is a greater feeling or desire to help others find their way. Don’t ask me where I am going! Don’t even ask my advice..I have no idea! Instead…look within your heart and see what is calling.

Stepping into the Canvas allowing for shutting down. Sometimes we have no other idea what to do next or an agenda for the day…these are those moments of solitude. It is in these moments that our greatest joys and ideas come from…go now…try it…try shutting down…Ani Po

Singing our Life Song

It is a new day and time for the heart to sing…Fear…Stops us in our tracks…
With a stronghold on our thoughts and feelings, we remain in fear. Afraid to sing when we want to sing, dance when we want to dance or just being happy for no apparent reason. Remaining in fear, our thoughts switch to more fear and potentially other harmful emotions. Time to change this, time to sing a new song…
So we sing…starting with a subtle tune, only for the self to hear. We gain confidence…singing for others to hear…only to be put to the test. With negative forces forming against us, we have a choice to continue singing or shutdown…falling to the other persons misery.
Makes no difference unless we have to work with them and their unhappiness. Their unhappiness makes our happiness difficult to find as we are submerged in their negativity. There may be compromise needed or something to shake things up. How about a hug for the other person?! Saying nothing but “I notice it is tense in here, I want to offer you a hug. With this hug may our days be brighter, letting go of whatever has brought us into tension.”
Singing to life we are giving life. Giving up this voice we are giving up a choice to singing our life song! ~Ani Po

The Spice of Life

Our days continue whether we like it or not, bringing joy or sadness. Depending on our attachment to things or events, is the difference of whether we find happiness or remain in misery. Some say it is choice, while others still say it is not a choice. I am not attached to either answer.

The truth is…if we are stuck in a dead-end job or have feelings of despair, bringing us deeper into darkness, we have the potential to climb out…reaching for brighter days and magical moments. But do the forces of nature seem to be against us? or do we feel others are against us?

Let it all go…even the thoughts of wanting to be happy. Let it all go…and just be happy. How do we get there? Shake it up…doing something your heart beckons to do. Spice it up, change the scenery and beliefs of circumstantial happiness. “But it is not possible” they say, “you don’t know what I have been through” they continue.

Sure I do not know what they have been through but I have met enough people whom, no matter what, remained in happiness.

Bill was a man who lost his wife, diagnosed with diabetes, quadruple bypass surgery and double amputee….just below the knee…and that was all in one year! When asked how in the world he could be happy, he replied with the most simplest of answers “I could choose to let all those things bring me down, robbing me of happiness throughout the day or I could choose to see the day as it was the first, like a child in awe of the many splendors it has to offer. I would change up my day as to bring something new into my life, searching for something I have never done or seen before. Seeking happiness, happiness finds its way into my heart.”

If Bill could do it, I thought…I surely can do it! Counting my blessings daily, I find more to count during the next. If I cannot count the blessings or get out of the rut I have created…then maybe it is time to spice things up a bit, changing my scenery and finding something new for the day to present to me.

 

The spice of life remains a mystery while happiness remains in the heart.~Ani Po
