Life is Too Short

Life is too short to worry what the neighbors are doing. I still do not understand why some people worry about the weather, worry about what is happening overseas, or what the neighbors are up to. Especially when there own house is in disarray.

Too much time worrying about everything else only keeps us from getting our own stuff in order. Am I in order? There are those who ask this everyday and strive to better themselves from previous days, while others are still stuck on something that is out of their own control. Shaking my head here.

I often ask “So what are going to do about it?” They reply “Nothing, it is out of my control.” Exactly! So why worry?! Instead…why not just send love to this area of concern and move on?! I know my house is always due for a sprucing up…so I return back to my own house and tidy it up.

Stepping into the Canvas letting go that which is out of my control. Worrying less, focusing more on my own house…making sure it is in order. As for today, I will send love to those who need it and stick to the grass-roots of my own homestead…with hopes that it catches on elsewhere…

One Word that Brings Peace

Better than a thousand hollow words, is one word that brings peace.~Buddha

Thankfully we no longer mimic media or naysayers of the days. Instead we methodically choose our words with purpose, thoughts with care and actions with intent. It is through our own mastery we have come to know that we are the captain of our soul, the master of our fate (Wm Ernest Henley).

Stepping into the Canvas with an opened heart. It is through this gateway our words shall flow, freely encouraging, inspiring to that may be. We shall forever inspire, be inspired…dancing to our own tune within the canvas of life…

Remain Unattached

Remain unattached from what we think we need to do.~Ani Po

There really is nothing we need to do, we merely feel we have to. Listen to what the body says. Our body will give subtle clues as to what we aught to do next. We needn’t do anything but listen to what our body says beneficial.

Whether it is physical fitness, healthy eating, or daily situational events, our body will give us subtle clues as to what feels right to us. Go with that. Whatever feels good…follow it. If it no longer feels good, stop it. Just as our reality changes so do our decisions of life…

The root of suffering is attachment.~Buddha

Along the Road to Truth

There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth; not going all the way, and not starting.~Buddha

It is through personal observation we come to a common conclusion…there is no right or wrong. We are taught what is and what is not, but only a perception of such. However, when it comes to knowing our truths and a deeper understanding of these, we instinctively come to a knowing that it is better to try no matter the expected outcomes.

Through applied efforts, we rest easier knowing we gave everything we had. If it does not turn out the way we expect, then we try again. But how many times do we try? As many times as we choose or the expected outcome takes place. Just as the above quote states, the only mistakes are not going all the way and not starting.

Stepping into the Canvas, with decisiveness in our step, we explore the infinite possibilities as to what or where we are going.  May this be the day we choose to change our footing; may this be the day we choose infinite possibilities; may this be the day that all is attained.

Three Things Cannot Be Long Hidden

Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth.~Buddha

Eventually the sun and moon will show their bright faces, so to the truth shall be revealed. Clouds may hide us from seeing it, the view may be obscured…but with patience they will shine before us.

To Be Diligent

To be idle is a short road to death and to be diligent is a way of life; foolish people are idle, wise people are diligent.~Buddha

Careful with thought, aware of our next steps..as not to disrupt the existing peacefulness within the Canvas of Life.We are to remain mindful of our every being…as not to be disturbed by the natural chaos of that which blinds us.

Believe Nothing

Believe nothing, No matter where you read it, Or who has said it, Not even if I have said it, Unless it agrees with your own reason, And your common sense. ~Buddha

We can read it, see it and we can hear about it…but is it true? That is left for us to decide. If it resonates with the self, then it resonates with the reality of how we see things. The key to our understanding of all things is merely accepting it to be true…but only if it agrees with our own reason…
