Anybody can do what I do

On February 15, George Hood, a 62-year-old former Marine, held a plank for 8 hours, 15 minutes, and 15 seconds, which Guinness World Records confirmed as the new record.

If there’s a lesson to be learned from this, Hood said it’s this:

“Anybody can do what I do.”

“Everybody has to start somewhere,” Hood said. “Every tree that’s planted has roots. Once that tree is planted, and those roots start to grow, whether it be 30 seconds or a minute or 5 minutes, or an hour (of holding a plank), you start repeating the process and taking care of your tree. It will grow, and you will improve, and you will actually get better.”

The journey through

Be Aware!!!
We humans, it seems, have anywhere from 12,000 to 60,000 thoughts per day. But according to some research, as many as 98 percent of them are exactly the same as we had the day before. Talk about creatures of habit! Even more significant, 80 percent of our thoughts are negative.

How can the positive, healthy, and happy consciousness be raised from level to level and grow naturally as a habit?

One of the answers is, going into the “water,” the baptismal font of unconsciousness.

The goal is to cleanse the self by cleansing the unconscious.

The dynamic is to free the self from obstacles and lift them (the obstacles) up to be purified into the constructive energy of forgiveness and compassion. Open up the self-senses to the others’ senses (to be “in” to be “with”), and filtering out the poisonousness of thoughts and emotions, and let the purity and the sacred thoughts and emotions to ruling the internal interior world.

Last but not least is celebrating with gratitude to bring together all the sacred energies as the life forces to the entire inner world. Generating healing forces within igniting the clarity of mind, heart purity, and energy in the body.

These dynamics bring the psychological, emotional, and spiritual hunger into balance, and bring into self, the sense of vitality, motivation, and commitment to continue the journey even further… which then welcomes and embraces the abundant blessings.

Coping with depressed mood

It is time.
You have suffered long enough.
It is time to come into the warmth and light of love.
You know who you are now.
Abide in the warmth.
Let the light of love grows richer, more meaningful, and more joyous.
It is time to believe that there is magic everywhere.
The magic is happening in every corner of life.
The most matter is to keep your eyes and heart open wide enough.
Learn to believe and unlearn the thoughts that you are broken and incapable.
You need to notice and accept that you are an extraordinary and complete person.
You have both strengths and weaknesses.
Yes, now is the time to write a “gratitude” list; to watch your list grow and choose to focus on what grows.
You have a purpose. You matter. You are loved.

Possibility

A possibility is born from the existential dialog between reality and dreams. It takes someone with vision and hopes to enter that internal sacred dialog. The excitement to embrace it is even stronger when the leaps of creative imagination ignite new ways of thinking: Dreams you have are there for a reason to be realized as a part of fulfilling life’s purpose.

Anxiety

Above all, trust in the slow work of God.

We are quite naturally impatient in everything
to reach the end without delay.
We should like to skip the intermediate stages.
We are impatient about being on the way to something
unknown, something new.
And yet it is the law of all progress
that it is made by passing through
some stages of instability—
and that it may take a very long time.

And so I think it is with you;
your ideas mature gradually—let them grow,
let them shape themselves without undue haste.
Don’t try to force them on,
as though you could be today; what time
(that is to say, grace and circumstances
acting on your own good will)
will make of you tomorrow.

Only God could say what this new spirit
gradually forming within you will be.
Give Our Lord the benefit of believing
that his hand is leading you,
and accept the anxiety of feeling yourself
in suspense and incomplete.
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

The magic of stillness

Meditate. To awaken the stillness within – to return to the source. To just “be” and to experience how life truly happens. From inside, the stillness teaches. Inviting to learn to be a beginner in every breath. As each breath creates, the magic of the beginning becomes awe and wonder, then invites curiosity to be one with the Beloved Mystery. Mind and heart unite and leans upon one another. Through this sacred interdependence dynamic, reborn hope and a sense of freedom. Transforms aloneness to glory. Heals and reunites pieces of “self” to wholeness. Amazingly alive again …
