A Course In Miracles speaks on the healing power of time. “Can you imagine what it means to have no cares, no worries, no anxieties, but merely to be perfectly calm and quiet all the time? Yet this is what time is for: to learn just that and nothing more.”
We are timeless beings and yet we are rushing around, checking off the to-do list constantly with little time to do nothing. It has been my experience in times of quiet, when you give yourself the opportunity to simply sit with yourself, you begin to let go of the negative energy and thoughts. You may have more clarity for creating a life with less stress and more happiness.
I have been told since I was a young girl by my Mom, Mary Timlin, who passed away in 1989, that I should strive to be content in life and I would always be happy. These words have never left me. But there are times when I have worries and anxieties living in a world of discontent. My heartfelt prayers are for a world filled with compassion for all beings. We are living in dangerous times with so much self-absorption and hate. Peace is the only way. At least that is what my heart tells me in my quiet moments. We are all one. The man begging for money on the street could be me or you.
“The world is full of miracles. They stand in shining silence next to every dream of pain and suffering, of sin and guilt. They are the dream’s alternative, the choice of the dreamer, rather than deny the active role in making up the dream.” Course In Miracles. I believe in the power of prayer and miracles. Sending out the intentions for peace and unity is a powerful tool. Be kind, be generous, be compassionate. You will find such healing in the act of giving and praying for the human race to rise above all the division in society. Send loving prayers to those who have harmed you and made you suffer. Healing is a birthright and there are powerful tools to utilize to truly free yourself of burdens and heartache. Forgiveness is necessary in this process.
Loving Kindness Meditation is practiced often by those wishing to free themselves of suffering. It begins with yourself first, then you send it to someone you love, then you send it to someone you see on the street but are not so friendly with, and finally you send it to that person who you do not like or have had a bad experience with. This is very difficult for most people, however by sending loving prayers their way, you begin to let go of your resentment and pain. It is daily practice that should be done often.
I leave you with a quote from Paramahansa Yogananda, “It is not your passing thoughts or brilliant ideas so much as your plain everyday habits that control your life. Live simply. Don’t get caught in the machine of the world — it is too exacting. By the time you get what you are seeking your nerves are gone, the heart is damaged, and the bones are aching. Resolve to develop your spiritual powers more earnestly from now on. Learn the art of right living. If you have joy you have everything, so learn to be glad and contented….Have happiness now.”BLOG COMMENTS POWERED BY DISQUS
