When you’re feeling uncertain…

When you’re feeling uncertain and need life-affirming reassurance, take a few minutes to appreciate these words of wisdom, mind-expanding landscapes and soothing sounds.

Perhaps this lovely contemplation of paradoxes will help you clear your mind, find deeper peace and meaningful comfort. 

Click    The Interview With God  to watch this video.

Here is a copy of the dialogue in this video:

I dreamed I had an interview with God.
 
“So you would like to interview me?” God asked
“If you have the time” I said.

 God smiled “My time is eternity”

“What questions do you have in mind for me?”
“What surprises you most about humankind?…”

 God answered…“That they get bored with childhood. They rush to grow up and then long to be children again.”

 “That they lose their health to make money and then lose their money to restore their health.”

 “That by thinking anxiously about the future, they forget the present, such that they live in neither the present nor the future.”

That they live as if they will never die, and die as if they had never lived.”

 God’s hand took mine and we were silent for a while. And then I asked…

“As a parent, what are some of life’s lessons you want your children to learn?”

 God replied with a smile

“To learn they cannot make anyone love them. What they can do is let themselves be loved.”

 “To learn that it is not good to compare themselves to others.”

“To learn that a rich person is not one who has the most, but is one who needs the least.”

“To learn that it only takes a few seconds to open profound wounds in persons we love, and it takes many years to heal them.”

“To learn to forgive by practicing forgiveness.”

“To learn that there are persons who love them dearly, but simply do not know how to express or show their feelings.”

“To learn that two people can look at the same thing and see it differently.”

“To learn that it is not always enough that they be forgiven by others. But that they must forgive themselves.”

 “And to learn that I am here always.”

Inspirational: Sung Bong Choi

This amazing video shows that even from the most humble and difficult of beginnings, the power of self-belief can lead to great things.

For many of his young years it seems Sung Bong Choi had no idea how to find his true place in the world. Then, one day, quite unexpectedly he had a vision of himself singing on stage. Having found this, his self-belief was fired to pursue his passion to become a vocalist.  Not knowing where to go for help, how many years or how much work would be in front of him he begin in small ways to fulfill this dream.

When the chance came to sing on Korea’s Got Talent, he overcame doubt and fear and unpretentiously presented himself to the audience.  By taking this courageous step with disarming humility and honesty,  he reached into a whole new world of possibilities as well as a host of new and daunting challenges. Having now inspired others to also believe in him and support his dream, perhaps his greatest challenge now is the testing of his own self belief to its limits and beyond. Comprehending the vastness of his outreach, is his self-belief developed enough to rise to the heights of all these expectations as well as to allow in himself a clear path forward into the perfection of a unique talent that has the power to instantly open hearts and minds?

The poignant quality of his voice, infused with years of raw experience and suppressed passion, gives hope, strength and encouragement. Everything about him touches a deep level. His innocence, unselfconsciousness and amazing talent seems to stir the soul. He pulls at the magnificence we suspect is possible, but not yet realized in ourselves, others and everything else as well.  When this miracle is right in front of us, judgment about limitation is momentarily suspended. Miracles really do happen!. The impossible is made possible! He believed enough!

Could this be the manifestation of the soul’s desire to find expression and thereby recall in all who are witness to this miracle the purest desire for greatness; for greater things, greater love, greater appreciation?

Because we recognize his pain and his glory, his story may resonate with us at stages along our own journey of discovery. Perceiving that self-belief and core strength are the same, we sense how this can be so compromised or even broken by difficult life experiences. Whatever hurt that may have happened or is still happening, it is this irrepressible and precious force that gives us the ability to withstand years of  struggle, hardship and disappointment in the hope of making our own miracle of healing come true and returning to our soul’s passion, centre of creativity and joyful greatness.

Thank goodness there are so many effective healing modalities, inspiring writings and teachers to awaken us and help us along the way. In regard to the restorative power of Hawaiian Massage, which I have seen and felt again and again over the years, I am totally awed by its seemingly effortless ability to kindly and lovingly open barred pathways to core self belief. It facilitates the manifestation of the happy and fulfilled life we so deeply desire and the worthiness to receive life’s blessings in abundance.

Because we understand his situation and have heartfelt compassion for the immense pressures upon Sung Bong for rapid professional and personal growth, could we please keep him in our prayers for great success in all his endeavours. Knowing how much it takes to achieve anything worthwhile, I revisit this video again and again both for inspiration and reinforcement in building new dimensions of my own self-belief. I feel such deep appreciation for his magnificence as a human being who believes enough in himself to come forward and enter into our awareness with this profound message of hope.

 

Not only is this music inspirational to hear, but the words speak our deepest hopes for human happiness. Here is the English translation from the original Italian:

 

Nella Fantasie

 

In my fantasy I see a just world
Where everyone lives in peace and honesty
I dream of souls that are always free
Like a cloud that floats
Full of humanity in the depths of the soul

 

In my fantasy I see a bright world
Where each night there is less darkness
I dream of souls that are always free
Like the cloud that floats

 

In my fantasy exists a warm wind
That breathes into the city, like a friend
I dream of souls that are always free
Like the cloud that floats
Full of humanity in the depths of the soul

 

 

Thank you Shae for sharing this video with me!     

 

 

Wonder why your voice raises?

Wonder why your voice raises as you become more and more upset with someone? This lovely little parable was kindly sent to me by a friend who found it both helpful and amusing!

Screams

 One day teacher asks his disciples, ‘Why do people scream when they quarrel?’

‘Because they lose inner peace,’ replied one disciple.

 ‘But why scream, if the other person is next to you?’ Teacher asked. ‘Is it not possible to speak to him in a soft voice? Why scream, if you are angered?’

 Disciples offered many answers, none of which satisfied the Teacher. In the end Teacher explained:

‘When people are upset with each other and quarrel, their hearts
distance from each other. In order to cover this distance and hear each
other, they have to scream. The more angered they become, the bigger the
distance between them and, consequently, the louder they have to yell.’

 

 ‘And what happens to people who are in love? They don’t scream.To the contrary, they speak softly. That is because their hearts are close to each other, and the distance between them is short. And what happens as their love strengthens? They don’t speak, they whisper and become even closer in their love. In the end, even whispering becomes unneccessary. They look at each other and understand everything without words.’
