I have been on a listening/reading penchant of late and wish to share some food for thought. I have included the title of the books below and My Questions (Q:) to ponder whether or not you check out any of the titles.
The Mind and the Brain: Neuroplasticity and the Power of Mental Force by Jeffrey M. Schwartz and Sharon Begley
Q: What would you choose if you knew you could shift your thought patterns and reactions?
What Doctors Feel: How Emotions Affect the Practice of Medicine by Danielle Ofri, MD
Q: Do you see a value in the experiencing the humanness of doctors or other caregivers?
Q: What would it be to live your life in “permanent Beta”–that place where you are always testing out and ready to shift what is or is not working?
Q: What makes a life well lived for you?
Jaya: A Retelling of the Mahabharata by Dr. Devduk Pattanaik (author and narrator)
Q: What if it really is only and completely about Self-Realization, God-Realization, Spiritual Enlightenment?
All is One
There are emotions, memories, hurts and regrets that we pull away from
The monsters of the inner life
Policing our boundaries for what is possible
When we truly face the monster
Open and honest
We see the face of love reflected
The monster dissolves
A fence comes apart
And we are that much closer
What do you seek?
All is one
Every door is that door
Dive deeply, yes.
Dive into the now, into any task at hand
It is one with the most sacred of tasks
For the U
ltimate, the Divine is present in all
With Presence and Gratitude, Find God in the depth of seeking
One door is all doors
Open one and the key is in your hand.
“In devoting yourself to your everyday tasks, you will obtain the highest results where the Divine is the task. The presence of Grace is there. Attain you divinity in service”–Sai Maa (www.sai-maa.com, twitter.com/saimaashakti)
“He who is faithful in the least, is also faithful in much; and he who in the least is unrighteous, is also unrighteous in much” –John 16:10 (Young’s Literal Translation)
The universe is an ocean
Love and light strung together as matter, movement, song and dance
Explore the depths of your own creation
Come face to face with Self
With the truth within
Good, bad, ugly–all perspective of one truth
And see the whole in the parts
Come face to face with god
You are love.
