The Day Begins With Self

The day begins with self. Every breath, every word from our lips and every step holds space for a beautiful day.~Ani Po

Setting our intentions on the day we step into a new reality, creating new rooms within self. Redoing or rebuilding our thoughts, coming to a place of creating new opportunities of peace and love.

Balancing our day with each step, kissing the ground with our intent to make a difference. With intent of balance, we assuredly change our course, our spoken words and  understanding for all…as we are all finding our way…

 

 

Dissolving the Self

We spend our whole life on auto-pilot, doing what we are told to do, say what is proper, hear what they want us to hear. Until one day we question everything. Dissolving who we thought we were, accepting who we are and to become…
Questioning mainstream media, the governing bodies, dogma of old and everything in between.
Sitting in the Canvas before us a new picture presents…telling a different story. What we knew and what we know now very different.
Stepping into the Canvas dissolving the self. Not giving up our self but accepting who we really are. Stepping authentically, forgiving self and worrying not what the others may think. Dissolving the self, accepting the self…stepping as we were meant to be.~Ani Po

Giving Thanks

Waking to the morning sun or a beautiful song, giving thanks for another opportunity. Whatever holds us to yesterday, it is gone and we remain in the forever changing present. It is this moment we find peace in our day, setting forth our intent for the day.

The fact we are awake…a blessing in itself. The fact we have another golden opportunity to share peace, love and joy…another.

Testing a Person’s Will

Life has many ways of testing a person’s will, either by having nothing happen at all or by having everything happen all at once.~Paulo Coelho

Ever notice when we have nothing to do we can drive ourselves crazy? Is it guilt? Do we feel we must be doing something with our spare time? Can we grant ourselves permission to just be and sit quietly with nothing to do. In doing nothing we are still doing something.

Ever notice when the ‘shit hits the fan’ it all hits the fan at one time? As soon as we get busy, everything wants our undivided attention! We have a busy day at work, no lunch and no breaks, the phone rings of the hook with more questions that need answering. We feel as though we are going to break at any moment and that is usually when our children step into the picture…looking for our undivided attention. Pop…we lose it. Why?

Are both related? or separate issues? I feel they are both interrelated. If we are conditioned to be ‘busy’ at all times then we feel we have to remain busy. During the busy-ness of the day we are challenged as to how we can add more to our day versus discerning that boiling point and knowing when we are done for the day. Which way would keep from having meltdowns?

Stepping into the Canvas simply allowing. Allowing nothingness to fill our days or busy-ness to do the same. No matter the scenario we shall remain in peace and joy, giving more thanks for the Canvas of Life.

Magnanimous People

Magnanimous people have no vanity, they have no jealousy, and they feed on the true and the solid wherever they find it. And, what is more, they find it everywhere.~Van Wyck Brooks

With gratitude in our hearts we look not into short comings of life but blessings of such, not down on people but lift them up, not at the darkened clouds but rainbows which follow. Foreseeing lack we merely confirm lack within the canvas, witness abundance and it will forever flow.

 

Strength Restored with Gratitude

Strength restored with gratitude in our hearts.~Ani Po

Our own strength comes from feeling gratitude for daily lessons, daily outcomes and the mere breath of our day.  It is through attitude of gratitude our power increase with every breath.

Practicing attitude of gratitude we gain much strength to tackle any tasks, conquer any feats and overall well-being. With each new day, exercising gratitude, we share gratitude with others…giving away our strength to others. In lifting ourselves up, we are lifting others up and vice versa.

Just for today I will try gratitude for even the littlest of things…Ani Po
