This is a concept I do not understand, but apparently there is an abundance of alternate news happening in the world. What is alternative news? Alternate news is anything but the real news? What is real?
Apparently real news is required to having a major network such as CNN or Fox, while alternative news is anything other…such as Facebook, Twitter or Huffington post.
What if they are all alternative? What if all news coverage is altered? Just because something happens to one, does it mean it is truth to another? If I do not receive the news, am I living a fairy-tale or in fantasy-land? I do not know the answers to these questions, but can tell our realities may be different while remaining the same.
How can they be different or the same? Though we live in alternative realities, we remain on course for similar outcomes. The inevitable shall claim everyone of us, but we remain in turmoil as to how we are going to get there. No matter our paths, our paths are shared with those around us and so on…and so on…and so on. We are all having different experiences. But why do we see things so differently?
We see things differently because of fear of trying something new, thinking outside the box, believing in something other than what we were taught. The Universe laughs with me, as we enjoy varying beliefs which causes more suffering.
Life is too short to take so serious. Laugh more and lighten up…for goodness sakes! Someone has a different viewpoint? What do we do now? We are left with a choice once again.
Stepping into the Canvas creating my own reality, creating my own news. The world does not exist outside my periphery and the world continues to grow within these walls of my reality. My reality, my news…I am the editor and chief, re-writing my own…one step at a time…Ani Po
How do I get from here to there in the blink of an eye?
How do I change reality?
How do I think life into existence?
So many questions, so much head-mind at play.
How do I change reality?
Choose to change.
Choose to think differently.
Choose to act in a new reality as it is already there.
It is time…Ani Po
We are stuck in the confines of our own reality with nowhere to turn but inward. With fear paying a visit once again, we fall short of reaching for happiness. Why? Why do we remain in our own misery?
I do not get a lot of things: personalities, beliefs, etc. but I accept them for what they are and what little we really do know. Laughing more and more at who I was, who I have become and who I am to be. The illusion was I was any different then present day and I am going to be different. I am not. Same as I was and same as I will be.
What is different? The choices I make. Choosing happiness over all else. Whether it is keeping peace in personal life or at work…I still choose happiness over all things. Letting go of being right. Letting go of knowing ‘all the answers.’ Merely…letting go…trusting All there is to provide for my vision of happiness.
Aligning with thoughts, heart and actions…happiness shall follow. It is through the gateway of the heart our dreams and intentions come alive. What is it that we want? Where do we see ourselves in one, two, five or even ten years from now?
As for me I see happiness on the horizon everyday and I run to it…Ani Po
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.
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
There is a place in all of us, a place without words. No thoughts, judgments or emotions…we just are. Observing ‘all there is’ we are a part of it all. Let us start the day in a space of knowing, giving and receiving simultaneously, in gratitude.
I have always known this concept of being in oneness, but still get reminders of how easy it is for the days to knock us out of our special place. We never really leave this place, but we forget about it. A simple nudge, reminder or awe-inspired moment, returns us to this place.
Recently I found myself in a circle of friends whom I have never met. We all came to the circle with personal baggage, but at the end of the night held hope that our burdens have lightened. Resisting to help another in this circle, allowing the others to process their own realities. In allowing, we are giving an ability for others to receive on a deeper level. Their own personal strength, joy and happiness become authentic and free. Self actualized we go about our days with a greater confidence, receiving a greater perspective.
In this circle I saw much pain, many reasons about why we should fall into a place of ‘the masses.’ We are not bound by this conditioning, we are free to choose to do this or that.
As our own healing begins emotions are shed, heat rises against us…purifying our souls. In a place of wetless waters, sweating without actually perspiring, speaking without actually speaking a word, listening without telling another to do, we are healed.
Speaking to a friend, a new friend whom I had not yet met before, referring to me as the philosopher, he said “you are very philosophical.” What does that mean I thought for a moment, but then explained to him we are all philosophers, we are the philosophers stone.
In our own healing, taking back our truths, we come to a place of knowing. Instilling our beliefs not through words but through our daily actions. We see things differently then the rest, we see them as the same. Seeing as one we infuse our beliefs into the greater whole of humanity, allowing others to heal around us.
Inside the ‘philosophers stone’ lay laughter and awe. It resides in all of us, waiting for our reception of its call. We all have it, we all have the ability of this authenticity of being who we came here to be. No matter what happens around us, we hold onto to this special place. A place without authority…a place of no words.
I am grateful for the friendly reminders of the day, circles I have sat in and those which are coming. For in these special spaces we are healed. As we heal others around us heal, reaching our families, communities…the world.
Stepping into the Canvas with new vision. Like projectors in our eyes, we blink a new reality into existence. Through strength and Love, Love and strength, we go confidently into the world ‘wholly.’ No words spoken, nothing more to see…we merely experience with new sight of what possibilities await our step.
