2015/02/img_0526.jpg“Life is not discovery of fate; it is continuous creation of future, through choices of thoughts, feelings and actions in the present.” —Sanjay Sahay

This quote… It makes me think and look at myself… HARD! About my life, my choices, and especially my thoughts!

I see how past choices have influenced my present now, in many aspects of my life, so I can truly feel the magnitude of this saying. It is so true!

Life is truly what we make of it, and our perceptions create our reality. This is how powerful each of us are. We are co-creators of our fate and destiny!

The image (found on a table in the lunch room) is from a desk calendar by http://www.tfpublishing.com.

“I will allow space for all the feelings my heart holds. I will not cower or hide from myself. It’s okay to feel the ugly messy things. It’s okay to feel the burning brilliance of beauty. It’s okay to feel the soft winds of happiness and the quiet bursts of loneliness. Its okay to feel it all. It’s okay to be myself, all of myself, not just the good.” –Unknown

20140727-231503.jpgDay 7 – Watching The Mind

Thought for the day: I am willing to be a witness to my mind, without judgment

Daily Quote:
This is the only distinction between the dream and the real: reality allows you to doubt, and the dream does not allow you to doubt….

To me, the capacity to doubt is one of the greatest blessings to humanity.” ~Osho

Today’s message from Osho is about how to be a witness to your mind.

Many Spiritual Teachers and Mentors advice that it is important to be the master of your thoughts. It’s not an easy thing to do! Even when you know that you attract what you think…

However, I have found that meditation and a focus to turn my thoughts around do help, when my mind is on a roll. Also, I try not to beat myself up these days. All is well, and I can always change my thoughts as soon as I catch myself.

Osho advises to not worry too much about your thoughts. It’s natural. Instead stop what you are doing and focus on quieting the mind. You will find gaps and openings in which you can distance yourself from thoughts. Then focus on the present. The sudden change will give you a chance to regroup… from here you can quiet the mind.

Or… You can change the thoughts to better, peaceful, or loving ones. 😊

The course is followed by techniques to help with watching the mind.

From the course:
Mind exists with your cooperation or your conflict…When you fight with the mind, you are giving energy to it…So whether you cooperate or you conflict, in both the cases the mind becomes stronger and stronger. Just watch. Just be a witness. And, by and by, you will see gaps arising.”

20140720-073736.jpgI get what I ask for.

I am in the process of a huge shift in spiritual (soul) growth. Most of the stuff I am facing I certainly asked for.

I learned before that I need to be a master of my thoughts. That what I focus on, I will attract.

When you are dealing with a lot of lessons, some emotionally charged, being the “master of my thoughts” sometimes go out the door.

Yet, I knew in the back on my mind, I need to stop and focus.

Well, I am tired of attracting the stuff I don’t want, so I am making a conscious decision to focus on what I want instead.

It takes the same amount of energy to focus on what I want as what I don’t want, but the former will be less stressful. Why do I always seem to forget that when emotions get in the way?

So I have decided to rewire and refocus… And I am grateful for all the reminders that seem to lead me to this conscious decision. Someone’s watching out for me up there, and He seems to be saying “snap out of this. You have a choice.”
