The Tunnel of Love, Ukraine

The Tunnel of Love, Ukraine

The Dalai Lama talks about love and compassion in this Empowering Quote:

Experience has shown me that the greatest inner tranquillity comes from developing love and compassion. The more we care for the happiness of others, the greater is our own sense of well-being. Cultivating a close, warm-hearted feeling for others automatically puts the mind at ease. It helps remove our fears and insecurities and gives us strength to face obstacles – it is the ultimate source of success in life.

Caring for the happiness of others will undoubtedly increase our sense of well-being, but it can never take precedence over the love and compassion we feel for our self. It’s impossible to develop these qualities for others before we find self-love.

Once we have that in place, however, cultivating those warm-hearted feeling for others will definitely go a long way to a successful life.

Albino peacockMany people have things to say, and some of them are even worth hearing, but few have the wisdom that the author of this Empowering Quote does.

[A human being] experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separate from the rest… a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.

Albert Einstein was definitely ahead of his time, but thankfully he lived in an age where much of his intelligence and wisdom could be recorded. Do you think he would approve of the beauty of this albino peacock? Can there be any doubt?

The prison that Einstein mentions is a metaphor that extends far beyond the restriction of our personal desires and affections. This is a subject that I have considered in the past and will write about some time. It is, indeed, a very interesting metaphor that encompasses our very existence in the third dimensional world.

Self-love (2)While listening to a recent recording on Mastering Alchemy, there was a reference to the 7 Living Words, which are the subject of this Empowering Quotes taken from Jim Self’s book What Do You Mean the Third Dimension is Going Away?.

The words you hold (consciously or unconsciously) collectively create a vibrational tone that is unique to you. You become known by your tone… As you become aligned with the higher dimensional Living Words, you begin to hold a tone that is recognizable in those higher dimensions. Your tone is aligned with who you came here to be.

As you may be aware, I have discussed the 7 Living Words before – most recently in Empowering Quotes #56. For anyone wishing to advance their spiritual evolution, it is crucial that they begin to adopt fifth dimensional words and vibrations, and these words have a very high vibration.

Getting back to the recording that prompted this quote, the reference to the Living Words was related to Love. The words themselves are aspects of Love, specifically Self-Love. When I thought about that, it wasn’t difficult for me to accept that Certain, Happy, Present, Capable, Senior, Gracious and Commanding were all aspects of loving myself. If I am able to exhibit them in every part of my life, then I am demonstrating self-love.

Meditating on these words, feeling their meaning within you, and utilizing them in your everyday conversation, will all help to increase your vibration – and this will become your tone!

I-do-not-fix-problemsBob Rotella is a sports psychologist and the author of this Empowering Quote:

If you don’t want to get into positive thinking, that’s OK.  Just eliminate all the negative thoughts from your mind, and whatever’s left will be fine.

Sounds simple, doesn’t it? Just eliminate all the negative thoughts … easy breezy!

The problem is, we’ve been thinking negative and positive thoughts for so long that it’s a habit that we’re not even aware of. So how do we identify them?

I believe the best solution is to identify a problem area that you would like to change in your life and then become aware of your beliefs about that situation. At that point, figure out if the belief/thought is serving you and, if it isn’t, get rid of it, change it, replace it with something that does serve you.

As Louise Hay says, you don’t fix problems, you can only fix how you think about them.

I like meThere doesn’t seem to be any acknowledged author of this Empowering Quote, but it’s used frequently by coaches and therapists.

What you think of me is none of my business.

It’s good to remember this when faced with judgement or criticism from others. No matter what anyone else says it is never more than their opinion.

So often we allow other people to determine our own sense of self-worth. That’s understandable when we’re childen as we’re taught that adults know better than we do. However, there comes a point when we’re no longer children and then it’s our choice what we take into account and what we don’t.

We need to be very discerning about other peoples’ opinions. Sometimes they can lead us to self-discovery, but much too often they make us feel bad about our self and contribute to low self-esteem. Instead of reacting, it’s best to follow this simple routine before allowing someone’s comment to hurt you or make you angry.

  1. Observe [Is this true?]
  2. Choose [Do you wish to respond in any way? If so, how?]
  3. Act [Or not. It’s your choice.]

Sometimes, we are faced with a comment that niggles of the truth. It’s happened to me a few times. When I comtemplate it, I have discovered that there is at least an element of truth in it. Then I’m able to thank the person for assisting me to know myself better. It can be humbling to admit, but I prefer truth and authenticity to living a lie.

However, remember: Just because a person says something or believes something that you don’t agree with, never makes it true.

Empowering Quotes #93

Build newThis Empowering Quote is from Meredith Murphy of Expect Wonderful:

Each time we want more of anything — self-love, freedom, spiritual growth, love, connection, belonging, confidence, well being — we have to first believe it’s possible. We need to choose and practice new beliefs that expand our reference points for what’s possible.

I’ve discussed beliefs on many occasions, but it’s extremely important to repeatedly bring it to our conscious awareness.

When we desire more of anything, we are asking for change, and the only way we will effect that change, is by choosing new beliefs. It’s not only the qualities that Meredith talks about in her quote, but physical things as well.

It’s logical when you think about it. If you hold a belief that you are worthy of more abundance, then you would absolutely be abundant in this moment. There would be no need to change anything. The fact that you aren’t abundant is proof positive that you need to change some unconscious belief so that you can begin attracting more abundance.

Determining your beliefs about an issue is the way to change your life [and the ony one that works as far as I’m concerned]. This approach applies to more of anything that you want to bring into your life – both physical and non-physical.
