Ramblings of a Minx: Water & Peace
I read. I smiled. I enjoyed a sandwich. I chewed out my soon to be ex.
I relaxed and most of all I thought deep thoughts. Realising that even as I seek and desire to Go With the Flow, Be & Live Peace.. I am struggling against a selfish will that is going to take some time to chip away at.
Or as in a Visualisation I had as I was “thinking” or Meditating on my wants as opposed to what my Loved Ones NEED. For themselves, From me in support and understanding. I Knew but I was not fully putting these things in a proper action.
So as I meditated, I saw a blue wave so gentle coming towards me. I was in the water already, and it washed over me and carried me on it. I did not fight it. Thus I Went With Its Flow. It was peaceful, sweet, lovely, and calm.
I then shed a few I Miss You & Healing Tears. It was what I needed. I hope it will help My Loved ones too.
I am smiling even now. Peace is coming into me. I am Seeing how my “wants” need to be worn away like so much rock by these calm waters. It will take time. It will mean more patience from me and from My Loved Ones as it is all a process. I know I need to remember to get away from things that distract me from Being & Living Peace. To get back to the peacefulness too of my Spirituality. A simple act of lighting a candle and praying to Kuan Yin helped me immensely.
So Be It. I am Forever a Student of Life, of Deity & the Universe.
Simple 2012 Resolutions (One Bit at a Time)
Okay I said I was Not going to make New Year’s Resolutions… but as I am all woman, I reserve the right to change my mind (all genders can do this by the way).
So that said, I Resolve to re-read Thich Nhat Hahn’s “Being Peace” and read his book “Breathing Peace”.
Because I need to live and go with the Flow of the Universe even more (also called Synchronicity)… and to allow all my relationships and aspects of Life be more Peaceful and embrace a state of Inner Peace.
After these I will add as I like and am inspired to do in 2012.
A healthier Lifestyle over all is a long term Goal.
An attitude of self acceptance is essential to meditation. This begins with the mind; learning to accept everything that is happening within the mind-all the thoughts, all the feelings, whatever-and coming to terms with it. Any attitude of wanting to change or manipulate the mind, or enforce a different mind state constitutes non-acceptance and will lead to trouble. This makes sense if you think about it. If you had to live with someone who did not accept you as you were, but was always trying to change you, manipulate you, or mold you into their idea of what you should be, you would not like it and would eventually become rebellious. In the end your relationship with that person would be a bad one, full of conflict and tension. Working with the mind is the same, because the mind is what we think of as me or self. If there is no inner acceptance then there is no basis for inner harmony or peace.
