Self-fulfillment is Self-love

Before you have something to give to others,

you must first give to yourself.

A kind of self-acceptance, forgiveness,

and gratitude.

Of all the creatures on the earth.

We are fortunate to be a human.

Filled with emotions, feelings

and a thinking mind.

To think of a world

and it manifest before our eyes,

is the greatest gift.

To live in this forever moment,

that extends into the future,

is the way to live that honors the sanctity of life.

Being Present in the Moments

Technology and Me

Interfaced with Technology
I am at home on my computer.
Whether it be a smart phone or an iPad.
It is an extension of me.
My thoughts, my action and my words are stored somewhere in
Virtual Reality.
As if someone is watching me and sending all that
I think and write.
Some look at Facebook as snooping.
I look past the most obvious
Into my own Law of Attraction.
Everything I speak into existence
Show up in my world.
There is no boogie man creeping up behind me.
I make causes with my thoughts, actions and words.
Like a boomerang it comes back to me.
As I take it into my awareness
It becomes my experience.
No one can tell me how to relate.
If it causes me trepidation
I can just let it pass by.
Like watching a wave
Rise to a crescendo
Then fall back into the ocean floor.
We are moving beyond the obvious.
Seeing clearer and deeper into the ocean.
All the marvelous and wonderful creatures
Live deep in the Sea.

Human Revolution

Human revolution is the work of transforming our lives at the very core. It involves identifying and challenging those things which inhibit the full expression of our positive potential and humanity.

The next step in our evolution as people.

Nichiren Buddhism is based on belief in a pure, positive and enlightened condition of life which exists equally within all people.

This life state of “Buddhahood” is characterized by the qualities of compassion, wisdom and courage, which enable us to create something of value from any situation.

Nichiren realized that the deepest process of change and purification takes place when we bring forth this state, and he taught the practice of chanting “Nam-myoho-renge-kyo” as the direct and immediate means for accessing and experiencing it.

The other night while driving home from Sea World, with my daughter in the passenger seat and four grands in the back a feeling overcame me and wanted to drag me under.

It was like swimming on the surface of the ocean as wave upon wave tossed and pulled me under. I allowed the wave to smash into me and felt the full power and grasped for a quick breath.

But first, back to the reason I was driving at night. I didn’t sleep well and I even wanted to stay in bed. But it was Camden and Grey’s Sixth birthday celebration. So I agreed

With coffee in my system and a warm shower on my face, I changed my frame of mind and looked forward to the day.

My daughter drove. Even though I am a morning person and would have preferred to drive first. The drive home was decided for me.

As I walked into my daughters bedroom a few hours before we were to leave Cailin replied. “Let Mumsil drive. “ Keshia in a matter of fact stated, I’ll drive in the morning, Mother will drive us home.

Sea World was a wonderful experience. I felt like a little girl as Rylie, Cailin and myself rode the coasters and screamed our heads off.

After a day long adventure I got behind the driver seat and began to drive home.

As I merged onto the ramp darkness began to  surround me. I looked at the oncoming bright lights and started to shiver.

Anxiety gripped my mind. Suddenly I did not think  I could navigate successful on the highway. I thought I would crash.

Irrational thoughts flooded my mind. I’m not sure where they came from. I’ve driven a car on the highways at night many times before.

I grabbed the steering wheel, sat up straight and looked over at my daughter. Just ten minutes earlier she asked if I was ok.

Feeling a little shaky, but told her everything was ok. Not wanting her to assume the heavy burden of driving to and from Sea World.

I finally relented and told her of the feelings that were vying for control.

I pulled off the freeway and turned the wheel over to her. My mind began to process the swirling feelings that had spun out of control.

There were many challenges facing me. I felt most of them were out of my control. No longer feeling the pressure of driving I started to talk. This was a sweet release. I emptied my belly of the stress. After that, we rode home in silence.

Sleeping late the next day, I had a full day to rest. The house was quiet. A dark moment to mediate. I realize that the constant emotion of anxiety had resurfaced.

When I feel I have no control over the situations in my life anxiety raises its head. The difference now I can process the feelings, see the truth of the situation, realize what I can control and let go of expectations, be at peace and release the feeling, like looking at a friend walk away, waving till she’s out of sight.

That powerful sentiment I received yesterday. A gift from the universe that was bestowed upon me. I graciously accepted and released the emotion not calling it my own.

Quantum Physics: Explains The Creative Power of the Human

When we think the world objectively exists independent of ourselves, we are distorting our image of the world, which is a process by which we can’t help but simultaneously distort our image of ourselves, because we are inescapably part of the world.

We can then easily remain unaware of the creative power within us wherein lies our potential gift to the world.

 

How can you tap into the creative force inside of you?

Imagine a force

that you can control.

with your thoughts

you remake yourself

into anything you choose.

your gift to the world is inside of you.

The W.E.N. Network is

the guiding impulse that believes

in the power of you.

together we can make this land

Heaven on earth.

No Longer a Prisoner of Thought

As I stepped outside of my thoughts, I saw them as the thoughts of my culture, my father, my mother, those who lived in my immediate vicinity.

I started to cling less and less to the persona that I called my personality. With insight, i was free to be. I could understand my life and which way I need to go.

Mindfulness Meditation and quiet contemplation moved me to the next evolutionary shift that we humans must make.

It is the one thing that will push Humanity forward from this stuck-on maintaining the status quo.

I turned around and look directly at my life and saw that I could transform myself and meet the challenge before me. It has been my mission to transform education ever since I entered the arena in 1992.

After leaving my fulltime job as an educator in 2001, I  began to see the slow decline in Democracy that we see on a national level.

This loss of purpose is directly related to the decline of the educational function of schools as a vehicle to transform the life of the child.

Day 12

Transformation

I live from my Highest Self
At home in the Buddha land
Each and Everyone
Has Awakened to their
Eternal “State of Being”,

I am alive in my own skin,
At Peace.

A light into the world,
Illuminating all the “Dark Matter”,
As it folds into it Self
And birth a “New Star”…

Transforming the negative
Into a positive force
That moves across the surface of the earth
Carving a Pathway to the Sun.

A Transformed Reality!

The decision has been made.
The wheels are turning
Moving forward towards my destination.

Inner light is the guide.

At a high rate of speed,
I grab a hold of my seatbelt
As the wind blow hair across my face.
Blinding me for a moment.

Until familiar landmarks appear.

A gentle nudge from an old friend,
Deepens my connection to what’s real.

A light squeeze from my aunt,
Turns my heart to butter,
As I settle into the day.

A moment to reflect,
Put things in perspective.
Over fifty years on the surface of the earth.

Close my eyes,
See a different reality.

The road traveled has been my Life!!!
