The Great Lesson of Life

The great lesson of Life is about acknowledging and accepting things for what they are.~Ani Po

It is not about good or bad, right or wrong, increased knowledge or unlearning everything we have been taught. Instead it is a constant observing of such and taking what works or does not work for our personal journey. We learn, we adapt, we learn and we grow.

Adjusting our lives, our movements, our thoughts…aligning to that which we choose to.

Friendships may be longterm or short-lived, just as a season or reason. We acknowledge the divine in others and accept all…for they are walking their own path home. Whether joyous or uncomfortable, our encounters may bring answers to our unanswered questions.

Guard lips or freely speak, both have a power yet to be understood. Judge or be judged, it matters not.

Stepping into the Canvas acknowledging and accepting things for what they are. We ebb and flow, adapt and unknow…remaining in awe at the great mysteries this Canvas of Life has to offer.

 

Gratitude

With sincere gratitude for those who take the time to read, like and share. Those who have come, not yet and who are on their way. To those who inspire, are inspired and/or merely enjoying a dance with inspiration. To all this I give thanks.

For each new day and setting of the same, for beginnings and ends, and everything in between. To all this I give thanks.~Ani Po

 

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

 

 

 

Breathing In Breathing Out

Come sit with me, come sing with me,
Breathing in.
Share with me, Share with you,
Breathing out.
We are one, we are freed,
Breathing in.
Casting into the wind…
Moment to moment
Breathing out.
Moments passing by at lightning speeds,
Breathing in.
How many are we going to miss?
Breathing out.
Casting into the wind…
Blink and it is gone,
Breathing in.
Another opportunity passing by.
Breathing out.
Sit and contemplate,
Breathing in.
Sit…just be…Breathing out…Casting into the wind…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

Helping Self, Healing the World

I used to think helping others was the way to healing the world. Carrying groceries for someone struggling, holding a door for another. While these are all niceties and are noteworthy, still something remains missing.

Just the simplest form of holding a door for another. Brings great joy, but what about those who do not show gratitude for our good deed? Are we attached to the satisfaction we get from another’s gratitude? Our attachment will bring suffering sooner or later.

Remembering why we do things, if that is what we choose, letting go of outcomes or expected returns. Having no attachment to the deeds we do, our reward will be far greater. Sometimes it is merely worrying (or not worrying) about the self.

Helping self, we are healing the world…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
