It’s about Time …
for the new
to move forward
but I am still me
socializing, working with community
It’s about the lessons; about group consciousness
It’s about the future; our hopes
It’s about our dreams; a vision
It’s about the fire in our hearts; enough to ignite a future
It’s about this experience; for all to feel the light
It’s about being everybody and everybody within us
It’s about being … self sufficient
It’s not about escapism … rather unity consciousness
It’s about our need for solutions that will lift the whole
It’s about liberating … not isolating
It’s about looking beneath the surface
It’s about igniting huge emotion
It’s about our capacity to love
It’s about dealing with this heavyness …dealing with this intensity
It’s about getting progressively stronger
It’s about breaking the illusion; the falseness
It’s about tapping our resourcess
It’s about time
Good Morning all …. Blessings, Journey to Balance
I believe that suffering is part of the narrative, and that nothing really good gets built when everything’s easy. I believe that loss and emptiness and confusion often give way to new fullness and wisdom…..remember…live, laugh, love :)
Do you see the flowers for their beauty or do you focus on the rain? We can choose
to focus on the upsets, disappointments or negatives of life or we can choose to see the bright side to each situation, the lessons to be learned and the positive silver linings. It all comes down to your perspective. You do have a choice on whether you dwell on the negativity or you choose to look at the positives. Choose wisely! :)
Every dream begins with I wish, progresses to I can, and ends with I did. Focus on the positives to make your dreams come true.
If we choose to dwell on those things which we’ve asked for and have not gotten, we begin to feel as though we are not worthy; perhaps God does not love us … but if, instead, we make a conscious effort to bring to mind all of the goodness we have been shown and given, we come to Trust that we have never really been given less than what we need and we have indeed been blessed with far more depth and love than even we can comprehend. Be patient my friends, and persevere …Peace & Blessings for a lovely day …Journey to Balance
Being Strong …
When times are tough, it’s tough to be positive. Yet that is your most powerful and effective choice.
When you’ve been knocked down, it’s tough to be sure of what to do next. Yet you can be sure that feeling sorry for yourself will make things even worse.
It’s hard to be strong when the challenges seem insurmountable. But the amazingly powerful fact is, you can be strong.
It is precisely because life can be so tough and painful that it can also be so beautiful and fulfilling. Those very challenges that seem so impossible to get through are what set the stage for a life that is magnificent beyond comprehension.
Life can be terribly unfair and difficult and demanding. And yet, against such a background, it is nearly impossible to imagine anything more beautiful and fulfilling than life itself.
Being strong in the face of difficulty is not a matter of training or ability. It is a choice you are free to make in every moment, and a choice that will bring immense value and goodness to your world. Daily Motivator (jtb)
Give up the need to CONTROL your loved ones,
expecting them to be the way you want them to be,
expecting them to choose what you choose because of your own fears.
You are inhibiting the natural flow of energy within you and them.
When you LET GO and allow them to make THEIR OWN CHOICES,
from a place of LOVE and ACCEPTANCE,
you set them and yourself free
from the restricting and negative energy of fear.
This acceptance and release is UNCONDITIONAL LOVE in action,
which opens the door to
FREEDOM and UNLIMITED POSSIBILITIES. …. Good Morning !!! Journey to Balance
Think a Positive Thought …
Think a positive thought, and you’ll take a positive action. Take a positive action, and you’ll get a valuable result
Thoughts can often seem easy, light, and inconsequential. After all, on its own a mere thought doesn’t have the power to do anything.
However, you most certainly have the power to do many things. And your thoughts are what determine and direct the actions you take.
If you continually focus your thoughts on the things you don’t want, those things will surely find their way into your life. By the same measure, focusing your thoughts on your most positive possibilities enables you to make those possibilities real.
When life brings you disappointment after disappointment, it’s easy to make all your thoughts negative ones. Yet it is just as easy, and far more empowering, to respond with positive thinking.
If you had the power to change your life for the better, would you use that power? You do indeed have that power, and it is in the thoughts you choose to think. Daily Motivator. (jtb)
Everything Can Move You Forward …
Failure is a result of what has already been done, not an indication of what you can now move forward and do. Each failure, in fact, can move you closer to success.
Don’t let disappointing results reduce your confidence. It’s more realistic, and much more effective, to let each failure strengthen your confidence.
The more experience you have with what doesn’t work, the more you’ll move in the direction of what does work. With persistence and a clear sense of purpose, failure can lead you steadily toward success.
Failure is not the worst thing that can happen. The worst thing that can happen is to do nothing.
Each and every result, whether it’s the intended result or not, means that you’re making an effort. Learn each time, from the desirable results and the undesirable ones, and boost your confidence with each step.
Rather than being ashamed of failure or dismayed by it, make good and positive use of it. Quickly get back up, keep going, and know that everything can move you forward. Daily Motivator. jtb
Balance: Keep Calm in Hostility
To me, the greatest irony is that a lot of the torturers who are now working for the ____ government (insert choice of oppressive gov’t) learned their torturing techniques when they themselves were tortured. So they learned to torture as victims, and they are now torturing other people as perpetrators. It’s a vicious cycle. What we have to work toward is explaining to people on both sides that these types of things are simply not acceptable- EVER. Often I think it’s a question of holding up a mirror and saying, “Look at what you are doing! Look at what’s happening. Aren’t you doing exactly what you are protesting?” But sometimes it doesn’t help.
That is why it is important that all parties be involved, not the press or government, but people who live in these troubled areas; at the grass roots level. It’s a matter of action, communication. It’s a matter of seeking justice for the love of all humanity. It’s a matter of raising awareness; raising consciousness at round table question and answer sessions.
Look, I know it’s not easy, especially when people of your own religion shout back, “You traitor!” But, I’ve learned to get out of my own way. It’s tempting to shout back, “No, you’re wrong!” To maintain a calm, even keel in the face of hostility has probably been the hardest lesson to learn, but definitely the most valuable. But the process becomes easier when we seek to understand and focus on why those who scream are screaming. It is calming however, and LET THIS ENCOURAGE YOU, that although the one screaming isn’t listening, the other one is. And so, your PATH is to continue speaking the TRUTH, to encourage change based on HOPE in nature rather than fear of human nature.
