Acceptance of the present

The resonance this had for me!??!

If we were able to truly accept the present moment as if we had specifically chosen it (which realistically/vibrationally we do) we would be offering absolutely no resistance!!!!!

When you are offering no resistance to the present your vibration raises, and of course with a high vibration everything you want begins to easily flow to you!!!!!! For me this statement truly gave me an understanding of the question “how do I get from ‘here’ to ‘there'”

There is no there! There’s only here and when you’re at peace with HERE you get out of your way to let “there” come to you effortlessly.

To say it’s a beautiful realization doesn’t even fully capture it ❤

The Power of Now and Pain Bodies

I’ve really been enjoying The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle.  As previously discussed this book brings to light how much of my time I have habitually spent outside of the present. It is something that comes so “naturally” to us that we don’t even realize that we do it.  We cannot change something that has happened in the past nor can we determine exactly how the events of our future will unfold, yet we spend so much of our time in those places!?

After this realization I’ve started to look at it as a fun sort of activity where I try to catch myself mentally wandering, it’s always refreshing to come back to “here” when I do.

“Here” is actually pretty awesome 🙂

The other spiritual expansion I have had with relation to this book is learning about what Eckhart refers to as Pain Bodies, here is his explanation of it.

In the book he states “This accumulated pain is a negative energy field that occupies your body and mind.  If you look on it as an invisible entity in its own right, you are getting quite close to the truth”  To me, it was like he was finding another way to describe what some would view as the devil.  It made so much sense on both levels because essentially they are both saying this is something that is not truly OF YOU.

It is not of you because you are of God. 🙂

All negative emotions and pretty much anything you would consider of low vibration are not of the goodness you are truly made of.  As part of our decision to work on spiritual development/growth we have to be able to recognize these negative aspects to transmute getting “carried away” by them.  We also have to understand they are not a part of our true character nor nature.

We are not negative beings.  It’s a BEAUTIFUL THING actually.

He directs us further by saying “Watch out for any sign of unhappiness in yourself, in whatever form–it may be an awakening pain-body.  This can take form of irritation, impatience, a somber mood, a desire to hurt, anger, rage, depression, a need to have some drama in your relationship and so on.  Catch it the moment it awakens from it’s dormant state.” 

I promise you when you are able to catch it before it even gets going it begins to amaze you how quickly you are able to dissolve something with the potential to emotionally exhaust you!!! (I can’t even tell you how much this has helped with me avoiding getting into arguments or becoming impatient when waiting on a long line.)

And so…Thank you Eckhart Tolle for expanding my soul just that much more 😀

Love Love Loveeeeee

Be Here!

Currently I’m reading Eckhart Tolle The Power of Now.  If there’s one thing this book has showed me so far it is the amount of time I was spending outside of the present by preoccupying my mind with thoughts of the past or thoughts of the future. No matter which you are doing you still are doing it in the present so for times you drift try to pull yourself back. Be here!! It’s really the only place you can be anyway 😀

be here

Welcome back 😉
