Garden of Compassion

Grief can be the garden of compassion. If you keep your heart open through everything, your pain can become your greatest ally in you life’s search for love and wisdom.~Rumi

There is a sense of non-attachment here. When we attach to things, whether material or no-material, we open ourselves up for pain and suffering. Letting go of all expectations, we allow ourselves to move freely passed a said unfortunate moment. Instead of suffering, we learn and grow from the present circumstances.

Setting intentions for the day, week or even longer, our thoughts are set in motion for unlimited possibilities. Rejoice along the way whether as expected or not so much. Through the process of setting intentions we are painting a masterpiece upon the Canvas of Life.

Stepping into the Canvas painting with an open heart. We are here to create, observe, rejoice and repeat it all over. Sing and Dance, laugh and play, remaining in balance along the way.

Beauty of what you Love

Let the beauty of what you love be what you do.~Rumi

For the Canvas of Life is meant to be enjoyed and we are meant to love what we do. If we pour love and passion into our days, the days will return love and passion. For do not settle on any one thing or person that does not bring joy. Instead color the day with inspiration…

Love what you do

 

 

We are Born of Love

We are born of love; Love is our Mother.~Rumi

With a birthing of each new day, we are given a chance to express Love. Repeat after me…no matter what is thrown my way, no matter a curve-ball or a fast-ball, I choose to receive only Love. Receiving Love, I return the gift…

love is our mother

 

Answer Within Your Question

Look for the answer within your question.~Rumi

What is it that you want? The answer is right there in the question…I want IT. What is ‘It’ that you want? That is left for the individual to find out. Seek and ye shall find, surely you have heard this wisdom before…are you listening?

answer within your question

 

 

Drawn by the Stronger Pull

Let yourself be drawn by the stronger pull of that which you truly love.~Rumi

Forget about what they have or what we do not. Focus on that which we most desire. Whatever it is that brings happiness, go forth in that direction. Following the heart is a sure pathway to that which we most desire…

Defining Syncrosensational

amazing picture

A day does not pass when we’re reminded of pain and suffering in the world. The dilemma? Do we dwell in it or do we create a new way of life? The choice is ours and ours alone. We mustn’t wait for a guru or someone else to figure it out for us, but walk the path alone. The guru or teacher may be a catalyst to what we already know, but it is our ambition to meaning that gets us to our destination.

When negativity is all around us, we must learn techniques of guarding ourselves from other persons negativity. Apply filters to our ears until all that remains is positivity that which filters into the brain. If their energy is too strong then politely excuse oneself until composure is regained. Some filters may include happy, positive thoughts or sending silent blessings to the perpetrator…Doing so instinctively draws upon a higher power.

Apply a guarded tongue…for our words shall amplify our actions or surroundings. Similarly, our words can give strength to a negative person…creating more negativity exponentially. With a guarded tongue we can assure only positivity into our lives, as our words become actions.

The tongue can bring death or life; those who love to talk will reap the consequences.

Whatever you speak can bring life or death into your life. ~Proverbs18:21

Check  the  emotions  at  the  door. Just  as  in  one  of  the  steps  of  the  Eightfold  path (http://steppingintothecanvas.com/a-modern-warriors-eightfold-path /), life is much easier when we master our emotions. When we check our emotions at the door, we clear-headedly cipher through our dilemmas. When our emotions are in check, we have ability to master our actions.

If our thoughts become actions, then by thinking negative thoughts we shall end up acting out our negative thoughts. Basic Law of Attraction. Negative thoughts yield negative actions; positive thoughts nurture positive actions. Choose wisely. Focus not on the shortcomings, but the intent of our outcome. Wherever our intention flows our energy flows.

Living a syncrosensational life is about redefining oneself and the path we are on.  Does this path lead to destruction or does it lead to paradise? We all know the answers to these questions, but so few are willing to take necessary actions out of fear of being different. We are all different, but we are the same. Forget out about what others think and master thyself…release the fear now. We are the captain of our ship, the captain of our team. Be the Master of Synchronicity.

Stepping into the Canvas as a Master Painter, for we have painted our entire life: with paintings pleasing to the eye, while some not so much. Regardless of the flaws or flawlessness, we have mastered the strokes our entire life. It is time now to clean the slate, starting with fresh Canvas, Painting the Life we always dreamed. Have a Syncrosensational Day!

Creating a Syncrosensational Day

Recently, sitting with a circle of friends sharing intimate moments of life, we shared moments of magnificence. One person was so caught up in the moment as she described what made her feel magnificent, while stuttering between synchronicity and sensational. Stopping her and having her recite what she just said…What makes me feel Syncrosensational is this…

It is moments like this, we have an opportunity to share our deepest secrets while creating the life we want. In these moments…thoughts become things, our own reality is defined by syncrosensational moments. The group thought the word fitting for all, as we desire similarly dreams of happiness. May you all have syncrosensational moments throughout your days…

A long and contemplative look at the stars suggests to a thoughtful person the need of shining in his own place, a t her own magnitude, and with his or her own hue. ~Harold E. Kohn

Being open to new encounters and new ideas, we find ourselves experiencing more magical moments of magnificence. In these moments we define our reality. When sharing conversation with another, there is bound to be magic each and every time…if parties are open to it. Often times we need reminding of being open to new ideas, so here was our reminder…

We might do well to write out an affirmation and hang it over our desk or over the kitchen sink: I AM ALWAYS OPEN TO NEW IDEAS. ~Dan Custer

Being open to change, one is bound to have a magical moment each and every day. Being open to change is an invitation for being in awe.

Stepping into the Canvas Open to Change. Within openness we find closure; we find peace, love and tranquility. It is vast and within reach…we need only be open to new ideas. Be open and you are bound to have a Syncrosensational day!

5 Steps To A Syncrosensational Day

If we were to ask any one person what they desired most, it would be happiness. Happiness is the number one priority for every human being, sadly it often takes a back seat to our busy days. Well today is the day we make it a priority…today is the day we let go of everything but happiness.

Happiness is not anything that must be found, but merely accepted. Accepting happiness we set the stage for a syncronsensational day. We are meant to be happy, we are meant to be free.

The first step is often the most difficult, but most critical. It is the very step that puts the machine into motion. The first step is identifying what we want and how we go about obtaining happiness. Again, I say to you, it is not something we find, but accept.

This first step could be identifying a stressful situation at work, an uncomfortable position working with a negative person, or it could be letting go of any self-defeating thoughts. The first step is identifying the end result.

Next we must commit to making necessary changes in our lives, allowing action to take over. By applying our dreams to our reality, they become our new reality. Making a commitment requires changing your mind on a set belief system and applying a new set of beliefs. Are there thoughts ”I’m not pretty enough” or ”I am not good enough?” What ever the identifier is in ones life…see it, label it and change it to a new belief…that of something more positive. We are good enough, we are beautiful enough and we shall no longer ask ”why me?” Instead, it shall be…Why not me?

Committing to happiness, we set into motion the necessary steps.  Posting notes or little reminders around the house, they remind us of our goals. We may paint or draw a vision board or write a daily journal or log about our intended goals for that day…which ultimately leads to the final goal of eternal happiness.

By writing it in a journal, a log or creating a vision board, we are committing our goals and etching them into stone. The more we place these little reminders in plain sight, the better the chance of becoming a reality. Seeing happiness and feeling it with every cell in our body, we change our thoughts into a new reality. Our thoughts become things by literally altering every neurofiber within our brain. In doing so, we are etching our new reality into stone.

1. Identify the area of need

2. Commit to making a change.

3. Take the necessary Steps.

4. Write it in stone.

5. Witness…and so shall it be.

Ultimately, to find happiness, we must merely accept it, but whatever we desire in our lives we believe it shall be so. In doing so, we are feeling it with our whole being, and we are witnessing our own miracles take form. In witnessing…we shall know it to be true.

Stepping into the Canvas taking necessary steps. In doing so, we commit to a new belief system…one of truth. We see it, we feel it…we know it to be true. Believing in our own happiness, we set in motion the necessary steps towards our end goal. Take the necessary steps, commit to change and write them in stone…Defining Syncrosensational.

Finding Peace Within The Chaos

amazing picture

With another week behind us and the weekend ahead, we settle into reflection on how we got here. Whether in bliss or in chaos, we made it…and we are here to enjoy! If chaos got us through the week, it is time to relax and learn from the experiences of our days. If bliss was there all along, then rejoice and enjoy the magic…let it carry us into the weekend.

Taking Me Time

Healthy ‘Me’ time leads to Happy ‘We’ time.  How often do we witness someone who continuously gives and then complains of being tired? Why do they not take a day to themselves? We often get so deep in what we Love, we forget to take the necessary “Me Time.” Take a break for you today and enjoy the Very Best Me Time!

Well today is my day for ’Me Time.’ Taking time to reflect on my days, clearing my head of the 10,000 things, I return to balance. When I reached out to a friend, she simply stated “Feed them Bananas!” This was exactly what I needed to hear. Taking her advice…I reached for the bananas and they were pleased.

Stepping into the Canvas in Silence, contemplating my nothingness…In nothing lay everything. Be aware of the signs leading to silence, heed their call and take the necessary me time. Have a good weekend…Love, Light and Life

Mirroring That Which You Already Know

Often times messages come to us in many shapes and sizes, but the most exhilarating are the direct messages that enter into our quiet place. Whether angels exist or not, spirit guides among us, or the Lord speaks directly into our ear, we cannot excuse the direct messages that we receive.

A little reflection will show us that every belief, even the simplest and most fundamental, goes beyond experience when regarded as a guide to our actions. ~William Kingdon Clifford

When we are down, a friend may appear or a mailing of good news may arrive miraculously at our doorstep. As long as we ask for assistance…help will always arrive when it is needed most. The trouble is we cannot always understand the messages when they arrive. Many of the ancient teachings have spoken of the next steps…we must enter our quiet room and contemplate our current status. Sitting quietly, for however long necessary, the answers arrive.

The quiet room is not a physical place, but a spiritual place that resides in each and every one of us. It is a place where all the answers are kept. There are teachings referring to this place as the Akashic Records. The Akashic Place is at the level where all souls and all records are kept. If one practices quietude, they can gain easy access to their answers…the answers of the Universe.

As we look out into another day, choosing to stay in misery or look beyond personal misery, focusing on what we already know…we are meant to be happy and free. How does one get there? Look beyond the shortcomings and expect greater things to come our way. If one is currently lying in the shadows of darkness, allowing it to pass,  Light will surely shine once again. Don’t give up, don’t just sit there…get up, take a step and trust that all will be good once again.

Even within our hectic schedules, it is attainable to find peace within the chaos.~Ani Po

Stepping into the Canvas as if you already know.  Realizing that we know very little, we begin to see everything we need to know. In our quietude, we hear the mighty roar within. In our darkness, we receive Light. With each step, easy or not, see the lessons before us…see the beauty that flows through the Canvas of Life.

Beyond The Veil

Removing the masks of who we thought we should be, getting to our authentic selves, we find whom we truly are. Often times we put on a pretend persona to appease another person. It is time to remove the veil that covers our true identity, allowing our playful side to return once more.

We can spend our whole life appeasing others, but never find happiness. Or, appease ourselves and live happily ever after.  A word of caution…when one steps out of the ordinary, they borderline extraordinary…what are you waiting for? Do it now! Often the others see the extraordinary as crazy…ignore them and be totally one hundred percent authentic…you!

Pretending to be someone you are not…only leads to pain and misery…Just be you!

Stepping into the Canvas as an original.  There is no other like you and there are no numbered copies of you. No matter the interpretation, no matter the gallery you find yourself in, be your authentic self. No one else can do it quite like you…you are a masterpiece!

The Way. Rumi
