I Choose Me

Of all the people in the world I could be…I choose me.

Be true to thyself.

Ask “is this for me?”

Go when others say you cannot.

Dare to create the unknown.

Hold onto nothing…not even a single thought.

Play till heart is content…then play some more!

Sing and dance with inspiration.

Laugh and rejoice to each new day.

Of all the people in the world I could be…I choose me.~Ani Po

 

 

 

Past to Present, Present to Future

Seeking answers our thoughts are brought forth, intent to the forefront of thought process. Sitting at the cusp of our forefront and it is foretold unto self. From lesser reptilian brain to greater of the lobes. Our Frontal lights up with answers, creative juices…awaiting our wishes so that it may command.
Forgiveness of self or forgiveness of others, seeking higher perspective to any given situation. Forgiving self, accepting all possibilities as they unfold. On cellular level or Macroscopic proportions, a deeper understanding exists. To forgive is to forget? Forgetting does not mean the literal but letting go of its stronghold on thought process. Crippled by our own thoughts, we elevate to the foreground of consciousness. Sitting at the cusp it is foretold.
Within our own practice there’s an ability to go from past, or reptilian brain, to a higher possibility held within our frontal lobe or the forefront of the thought process. Foreknowledge, forward thinking…all bridged within seeking that which we search. It is our seeking that bridges thoughts from past to present, bringing us into a forever present moment.
From moment to moment we arrive in a place of paradise. Paradise entered through the heart, but through frontal thoughts the key exists.  For it is written unto thee, look to the heavens we shall. Third eye or higher perspective? From past to present, present to future it shall be written…it is foretold…
So I sit enjoying this space…Ani Po

Healing the World

Our reality is our own…with an opportunity for change. We can choose to accept it or fight it. One yields ease and the other dis-ease.
Our reality is our own and others realities are their own. We can choose to accept theirs for face value or we can repel against them. Choosing to accept theirs…we alter our reality. Repelling against theirs, we are altering our reality.
Their reality is constantly changing just as our own. Accept it or fight, makes no difference…both have consequences.
At light speed or floating along effortlessly, we are continually expanding and contracting, ebbing and flowing.
We open the box, taking a peek at a new reality. What is this new reality? Like a child we anticipate joy and excitement that awaits. We have just opened a new reality…Ani Po

Setting Intention, Painting a New Canvas

We journey inward to self, unleashing hidden fears or hidden strengths. Setting our intentions of self, we set intention for the global canvas of life. As our reality changes so to our world around us changes. As we heal, the world heals.

Holding our own, we are holding space for the greater cosmos. Focusing our intent on clearing our space, we allow healing to take place. As healing within our own space commence, healing and a grandeur plain takes place. At level of self we heal the world.

It is through our own intentions that we share light of hope. In the flicker of hope, others may light from this…passing it onto another. It is said we stand in front of 10,000 possibilities. Meaning for every change we make, there are 10,000 people behind us that are effected.  If this is so, what do we intend on doing for self?

Stepping into the Canvas setting Intention. In setting intention, painting a new canvas…a new reality. A thousand realities merge into a single reality of our own.

Healing Self, Healing the World

As we step into the canvas of self, we paint a brighter picture for the world.~Ani Po

It is not our job to fix the world for it does not need fixing. What the world needs is work at the level of self. Healing self, Healing the world.

Through our inward journey of self-realization, we come to a conclusion that the world is as perfect as it is going to get. How we see it will change and how we feel will surely change. It is through self discovery and self-care we find happiness in any given moment. No matter the circumstance, we will find peace and happiness.

As we learn and grow at level of self, the world around us shifts. The world does not need help in fixing itself, but may require more awareness of others. Maintaining self, we learn to extend the same courtesy to mother earth.

We shift, the world shifts. We heal, the world heals. The world around us is merely an extension of self. As we step into the canvas we are stepping into awareness of self and the world around us.

Thought Between Thoughts

Thought between thought.
In a place of darkness and void there is a spark, a thought taking shape and form. This thought becomes my own, giving birth to a thousand galaxies in a single breath.
Observing thought between thoughts new realities are born…continuously and simultaneously. Witnessing and allowing.
Traveling to those in need. Giving hope to darkened reality. Giving breath to void, allowing others to breathe a new reality.
Stepping into the Canvas with no thoughts…just observation. Merely an observation of things creates new thought process and allows infinite possibilities to play out. May the thought between thoughts be filled with joy and love, mystery and awe…Ani Po

Igniting the Flame

servant

When I was younger, I never really thought about what I was going to be doing with myself later in life. Having an idea that one day I would help people, but never really understanding what that meant. During my awakening, I realized that we are all in the service industry whether we truly understand it or not. We all have the ability to serve.

It is through this understanding that a flame ignites within our soul, aspiring to serve each and every person we meet. Through random or specific encounters, we have a choice: make or break another person’s day. Our words have so much power, with abilities we may not fully understand.

Either raise someone up or kick them to the curb, it is merely a choice. Whichever path we choose there are consequences to be had.~Joseph

On an individual level, we have the same innate ability to make or break our own days…with merely our thoughts. If we have thoughts of despair or invincibility, either way it will define our reality. Change our thoughts to that of good and nothing…I mean nothing…shall get in our way.

How do we do this? How do we come to know this place of invincibility? For me, it was finding God. Not just a person whom to pray to, but a personal friend and confidant who will always be there for me. Whether up or down, afraid or fearless, assuredly God is always there.

A mirror of the almighty

Earlier today I had a wonderful experience with two wonderful Dish Network installers. They not only called, asking permission to come earlier than our scheduled appointment, but they shared wonderful Words. The conversation which had the most meaning was that of the Mayweather fight, which took place last week. One of the gentlemen pointed out how Mayweather was not only a champion in the ring, but in life. As the awarding of his title, Mayweather gave thanks to God. As many athletes do, he looked to the heavens, pointing and giving praise.

While this is noble, it was not the notable conversation that stuck with me throughout the day. When we discussed Mayweathers praise to God on a successful win, we asked “do we ever see the loser of a bout or any sporting event, for that matter, give the same praise in which we see during the victories? Wow! was all we thought about, as we both came to a realization that as an individual who chooses to praise God, it is in our victories that gives meaning, but it is the faithful servant who gives praise during a win or defeat.

Just as in life, we often remember to give praise for our blessings…but do we remember to give praise when we are down? Still thinking about this, as I give thanks for the encounter of my days, I realize that even I do not give enough credit to the Creator of this great Canvas of Life. Whether it is an encounter with a cable installer, a street person, or a professional of some sort, we have the ability to Praise God at every given encounter. As we greet another human being, we have the choice to greet them as an individual or come to know them as God sees us…one of His family.

Through the eyes of flesh, we see individual as labels; through the eyes of Spirit, we see them as He sees us…a shining star.~Ani Po

In this moment of exchange, we ignite a fire within… fire that not only lights an eternal flame, but feeds the soul for all eternity…giving us everything we need in life. In this moment of exchange we see others as ourselves, even greater than the self, we see them as God sees us…a spark of the divine. With every encounter, a gift is given, whether direct or indirect the exchange is made…changing our lives forever.

Stepping into the Canvas Igniting the Flame, we not only see the good and the perceived bad, but we see All as Good. Seeing All as Good, we return to the innocence of a child, seeing everything as a miracle, amazed at the many blessings continuing to multiply within our days. With every step a miracle is born, with every step our words become His, with every step…we see All as Good.
