Time to Show Up by Brene Brown

”I think midlife is when the universe gently places her hands upon your shoulders, pulls you close, and whispers in your ear:

I’m not screwing around. It’s time. All of this pretending and performing – these coping mechanisms that you’ve developed to protect yourself from feeling inadequate and getting hurt – has to go.

Your armor is preventing you from growing into your gifts. I understand that you needed these protections when you were small. I understand that you believed your armor could help you secure all of the things you needed to feel worthy of love and belonging, but you’re still searching and you’re more lost than ever.

Time is growing short. There are unexplored adventures ahead of you. You can’t live the rest of your life worried about what other people think. You were born worthy of love and belonging. Courage and daring are coursing through you. You were made to live and love with your whole heart. It’s time to show up and be seen.” —Brene Brown

World of Emptiness by Shunryu Suzuki

Although we have no actual written
communications from the world of
emptiness, we have some hints or
suggestions about what is going on
in that world, and that is,
you might say, enlightenment.

When you see plum blossoms or hear
the sound of a small stone hitting
bamboo, that is a letter from the world
of emptiness.

~Shunryu Suzuki

Living Life With Trust Without a Net by Madisyn Taylor

Living Life With Trust
Without A Net

by Madisyn Taylor

When we continually live our life with a safety net it creates a barrier to our freedom.

As we create the life of our dreams, we often reach a crossroads where the choices seem to involve the risk of facing the unknown versus the safety and comfort of all that we have come to trust. We may feel like a tightrope walker, carefully teetering along the narrow path to our goals, sometimes feeling that we are doing so without a net. Knowing we have some backup may help us work up the courage to take those first steps, until we are secure in knowing that we have the skills to work without one. But when we live our lives from a place of balance and trust in the universe, we may not see our source of support, but we can know that it is there.

If we refuse to act only if we can see the safety net, we may be allowing the net to become a trap as it creates a barrier between us and the freedom to pursue our goals. Change is inherent in life, so even what we have learned to trust can surprise us at any moment. Remove fear from the equation and then, without even wondering what is going on below, we can devote our full attention to the dream that awaits us.

We attract support into our lives when we are willing to make those first tentative steps, trusting that the universe will provide exactly what we need. In that process we can decide that whatever comes from our actions is only for our highest and best experience of growth. It may come in the form of a soft landing, an unexpected rescue or an eye-opening experience gleaned only from the process of falling. So rather than allowing our lives to be dictated by fear of the unknown, or trying to avoid falling, we can appreciate that sometimes we experience life fully when we are willing to trust and fall. And in doing so, we may just find that we have the wings to fly.

When we believe that there is a reason for everything, we are stepping out with the safety net of the universe, and we know we will make the best from whatever comes our way.

Unbreakable by Jeff Foster

UNBREAKABLE

You do not heal from trauma, and nobody heals you either. You simply reconnect with that sacred place in yourself that was never traumatised, never broken, never damaged in the first place; your true Self, absolute and ever-present, innocent and free.

It is not a destination; it is You, alive and awake in the moment.

Know yourself as the Absolute, and let all thoughts and feelings move through you, however intense or uncomfortable. The forms pass, they always pass, and You remain.

You are not broken; you are Unbreakable.

– Jeff Foster

I will not Whisper! by Adyashanti

I WILL NOT WHISPER

I want to speak to you about Love
about how you deny yourself
its slightest entry
about how much you truly fear
Love’s silent embrace.

I want to talk to you
about how you will not
allow yourself to see –
about that beauty inside
that you turn your face from.

Yes, I want to talk to you.
You who have somehow
found a way to hide
within a silver of darkness
cast upon the pure light of Being.

I want to talk to you
I will not whisper.

You can live in that silver of darkness forever
and tell yourself lies.
You can blame yourself.
You can blame others.
You can blame God and beyond.
And still that love you are will wait
until you can tell yourself
the lie of denial no more.

And at that very moment
you will see
just how silent Love’s embrace can be.
And in that silence
the truth will ring clear.
Love demands everything:
all of your illusions
excuses and fears.

I want to speak to you about Love.
I want to talk to you about
what you will not allow
yourself to be.

I want to talk to you
I will not whisper.

– Adyashanti

Know With Your Heart! by P’taah

June 2016
Message from P’taah:
Know with Your Heart, Not Your Mind 
 
P’taah: Greetings beloved ones! This day we are going to do a little review of that which you truly do know, at least intellectually. But until you know it in your heart, your life will not change.
Who you are is a grand and wondrous, powerful multidimensional Expression of Source. Who you are is awesome indeed. Who you are exists in all realities in this Now moment. You create your own reality absolutely in every Now.
Do you realize how important it is for you to know this? You are a grand and very wondrous body of electromagnetic energy and you draw to you in every Now that which shows you who and how you are. That is how powerful you are. There is not one experience or situation in your life ever which you have not created absolutely.
You see, my beloved ones, until it is that you can take responsibility for what you create, you are forever victim. What does it mean to be victim? It means that you are powerless to transform your life. And after all, that is why you have come forth in this reality, in this Now, in this time frame.
In a way you may say that in all of the lifetimes in that which you call your past and that which you call your future, you choose simply for the experience of it. You choose it! You are not ever forced to come into human reality. And why do you choose it? For the intensity of the emotional experience. That is all! You are Gods and Goddesses playing a game called life–Human Life Now.
And you may play the game however you desire it. There is no judgment. For some of you when you look at that which are your life experiences, you say, “I must be mad! Why would I choose such hell?” It is to remember when you look at the horror stories that each lifetime is like the blink of an eye and all of it is occurring Now!
Who wants to be enlightened? Bad luck! Forget about enlightenment! You are already enlightened beings. The only thing that keeps you separate from that knowing in truth is just a tiny fear. You have forgotten the truth of you. You are already experiencing lifetimes as realized human.
How many of you desire enlightenment to escape fear and pain? Bad luck! There is NO escape! There is no escape, there is only transformation. And transformation is a choice. This is your power.
One of your little obstacles is that no one really tells you HOW. The simplicity of it gets lost in the stories of the do’s and don’t, the should’s and should nots, the ‘do it this way or miss the boat all together.’ Who is afraid of missing the boat–raise your hand up. (some laughter) You will NOT miss the boat.
There are four keys to transformation. One: You can only transform what you own. If there is anything about you life including fear and pain that you will not own, acknowledge and take responsibility for, how can you possibly transform it?  For as long as you will not take responsibility, your life will not transform. For as long as you invalidate any facet of you, you cannot transform it. Make sense? We are very, very sensible. Logical, indeed. You cannot transform what you do not OWN.
Two: You can only transform in the Now moment. In a way, you have no past and you have no future. You cannot transform in your past. You cannot transform in your future. However, paradoxically, when you choose transformation in the Now moment you do transform your past and your future.
Three: This is a very important one. You can only transform whilst you are in the emotion of the pain or fear. We say this again to you, you can only transform whilst you are in the E-motion of pain and fear because your emotions are the power-sourceness of you. If you could transform your world with your intellect, then indeed your world would be a very different place in this Now. Your intellect was designed to implement your heart’s desire. It is the servant, not the master.
Your reality is created of thought and belief enwrapped by that power called E-motion. That is the magnetic energy that creates reality. It is through that magnetic energy that you draw to you the experiences that show you who you are. The polarities of your reality are love/fear however all of it is simply energy. The energy of fear is a slower, denser frequency.

You are the Gods and Goddesses who are alchemists. Your extraordinary power has the ability to change matter and to transform dense energy to light energy, fear to love. So that emotional essence of you is the force of your power in your reality.

Four: You can only transform what you own in the Now moment whilst you are in the emotion and then by the total embracement. What is it that you usually try to do when you feel fear? Overcome it? Stuff it down? Try to release it or get rid of it? Invalidate it? Hide it under the carpet or run like hell from it?
It doesn’t work does it? When you look at your life, you see how it is that you have recreated and recreated stories that although maybe different in your exterior reality, nevertheless bring up the same old feeling. Of course the bottom line feelings are those of ‘not enough’, ‘less than’, ‘unworthy, powerless, abandoned’, and the belief that you exist in a hostile world. Any of this sound familiar to anybody?

It is the human story and you have for lifetime after lifetime in your terms forgotten the grand truth. And what do you think is the most unlimited, grandest truth? It is that you are in every Now moment a Perfect, Eternal Expression/Extension of the Source. That is your truth! And as we have said, what keeps you separate from knowing this grand truth is a tiny little fear that you are not enough.
