2 days ago or so I had a cup of Yogi Tea, I love Yogi tea particularly because their tea bag labels always drop little bits of wisdom for me to ponder on.
On this particular day The tea tag stated “The purpose of life is to enjoy every moment” I played with the idea in my mind for a moment and my interpretation of it was that if you learn to enjoy every moment you will have a good life because you won’t spend time frustrated or being “negative.” I was satisfied with this thought and went about my regular day. Apparently this little tea tag was not done with me however. It crossed my mind again this morning during meditation where the idea of enjoying every moment was being called back to my feelings on being aware of one’s emotional state and being a “belief thief.”
Enjoying every moment is about alignment. When you only hold on to beliefs that resonate with your soul you will enjoy life. If it’s not resonating with you then discard it!! free yourself up from trying to fit that round peg into the square hole. Find the round hole and be happy!!!
The other part of this coming together for me was in reading. In Astral Projection John states “the universe is infinitely recursive” It resonated on such a deep level for me because I am now able to fully understand that there is no beginning or end to the universe. When you know there is no end, you stop focusing on the end. You don’t worry about getting “there” because there is no there!! There is only here. The concept of there only being the present also reflects that.
If there is only now you allow yourself to appreciate life for what it is, a journey! 🙂
That is now what I now believe the author of my tea tag meant (even if he or she didn’t that’s what I received from it and since it made me feel good to figure it out it must be one of my natural state of being beliefs!!!–see how it all comes back around and around!!!!)
I spend many moments in gratitude for my spiritual development.
So in the beautiful and effortless unfolding of my life this morning I decide that I will write about a few things that I have been playing with in my mind lately. I open up the webpage and posted by Think Positive, Be Positive is this post that says “Think positive, be positive and positive things will happen”. My mind did a back flip!! This quote pulled together a few things I have been playing with over the past few days! (I can’t even explain the gratitude and love I feel when this happens. It’s amazing)
Think Positive:In my spiritual development I am learning what it truly means to think positive. I understand now that positive thinking is not so much about trying hard to be happy all the time, it is becoming aware of your natural state of being. The method for which is to pay attention to your emotions! Things that cause you to feel good are things that are letting you know you are aligned with your true state of being, where as things that make you feel poorly are not aligned with your natural state of being. I then saw this video where Bashar explains what a belief thief is.This further deepened my understanding of the idea of what it is to think positive. The short of it is things that don’t make you feel good emotionally are not aligned with your natural state of being. They are simply someone elses beliefs that you have picked up along the way. (This is not to say that these beliefs are not in alignment for ANYONE they just aren’t in alignment for you)
Be Positive: When you are paying attention to your emotional state and learn the ability to “drop” beliefs that are not your own you can then more effortlessly stay aligned with your natural state of well being. It becomes easier to no longer hold beliefs that do not suite you. You no longer feel the need to try to force yourself to fit into someone else’s “belief mold” (It sort of reminds me of when my friend borrowed a pair of shoes that I had worn in a little. When she returned them she said she really liked the shoes but she realized she could only comfortably wear them if she “walked like me.” It only worked if she fit into my “foot mold” which was not her “natural way of walking”) When you only carry beliefs that are true to your natural state of being you become the true you which is a positive being. 🙂
Positive things will happen: When you are fully able to live this way positive things cannot help but to come into your life experience because you are aligned with your true self. This is essentially saying the same thing as my explanation of how your emotions let you know how close or far away you are from God.
That is part of the beauty of this all to me. The same core messages continue to pour into me through so many different avenues. This is how I know what I am learning is so sincere and true to me. 🙂
Fear is not real.(meditate on it) Although, now I can appreciate where it came from. I feel like fear was good intentions gone astray. It was supposed to be a tool to try to encourage people to behave well. The fear associated with the idea of Karma or the devil is intended to coax you into being a good person in life but what I’ve come to find is not to use that method as the driving force to whether I will try to be a good person or not.
I strive to be a good person because I want to be as close with God as possible; being close to God brings awesome things into my life experience! I am a believer that your Emotional Guidance System (your feelings) let you know how close or far away you are so I always strive to reach for higher vibrating feelings and when you have those feelings you can’t help but to be flooded with Love, Peace, Joy, Compassion, Forgiveness, Non-Judgment and all the spectacular things that are God. 😀
I’m so thankful for that now being the thing that drives me opposed to fear. It makes life significantly less stressful 🙂
Our souls are customized pieces of God. God is infinite. They*he/she/whomever* have no limit of combinations of what we view as characteristics. Much like a master chef they add different ingredients to make the delicious dish that is our customized souls. This is reflected in the fact that no two people are ever going to be 100% alike no matter how many similarities they hold.
We take our customized souls and put them into the physical body. Now we’re body and soul BUT WAIT!!! They aren’t done there, in addition to our body and soul we are given an emotional guidance system it’s sort of like your direct line to God. The better you feel the more you are connected, the worst you feel the less you are connected.
I find it important for people to understand God is nothing but pure awesomeness (for lack of better words lol) God is only love, peace, joy, forgiveness, caring, thoughtfulness and all the beautiful qualities we see in the world. We as individuals have the option to tap into the constant flow of Love he sends to us or to turn away from it but it’s ALWAYS THERE. The gratitude I feel knowing that fact is nearly indescribable
I am an empath and I am a woman. The concept of emotions is not a foreign one to me lol!
*in the event you’re curious about what it is to be an empath check out this article, although I generally disagree with one size fits all listing it is helpful in getting validation about things you’ve probably already know about yourself which ultimately helps you grow 🙂 http://themindunleashed.org/2013/10/30-traits-of-empath.html*
We are all fitted with an emotional guidance system which sort of serves as your personal meter to know how aligned you are with God. The better you feel the more you are aligned, the worst you feel the less you are aligned. *An important side note being no matter how low on the meter you are, you still can never fully disconnect with God….EVER–which is beautifully awesome to me.
A side note to the side note is also to remember that free will is very much so real. If you have ever looked at something and said “how could God allow this to happen?” Free will is the answer. They don’t force anyone to connect and align with them, they allows everyone to connect and align with them so when you see things in people that are vicious or hateful you can likely be assure that individual has opted not to connect and align…aka don’t blame God for stuff lol
Back to our emotions!
*Thanks Abe and Esther!!*
You are always feeling SOMETHING in every waking moment. It is your job to be mindful of your feelings in order to keep them moving forward in a positive direction. When you are feeling good, good things come to you. *A discussion about the law of attraction will also be had just not now lol*
I believe this so much so that I actually got this lovely tattoo as a reminder 🙂 the heart beats on average 75 times in a minute (resting) that gives you 75 times every minute of your day to be aware of your feelings. That is AT LEAST 57,600 opportunities to connect yourself with God a day!!! It’s amazing really!?
All in all never discount your own feelings. Never let anyone else discount them either. Whatever you are feeling in any given moment is valid. Strive for positive feelings because that’s how you get close to God and what could be better than that!?
