A place to share tips for living a life of Spirit in the world of matter.

dog in reclinerChange implies seeing something wrong first, then judging, or condemning it and in need of change. All of this takes place within the physical space of perception, which is founded on change.

I have perceived the magician sawing the lady in half. Do I condemn the magician for murder? I can but choose not to judge based on faulty perceptions.

To perceive Rightly requires Spiritual Sight, enabling us to look beyond the physical to the Meta-physical. Our Right Actions require our Right Thinking- Inspiration ( In Spirit) infuses us with the Light of Love and in the Light we see rightly which leads to our Right Thinking which leads to our Right Doing.

It all starts with the Light of Love. Yet we continue searching in the darkness for the Light, it is not there!!!

Search for the Light, first, then we will rightly see that the Light has shined the darkness away.

As we find the Light, we share it and then we see by it. This is Extension and it is our reason for being here: to find or Remember the Light, to give it away, or share it, and it will return back to us, amplified perhaps 10 thousand-fold.

Our To-Do List:

  1. Seek first the Kingdom, the Light of Love, which is within us.
  2. Having found it, simply give it away, or share it (same thing).
  3. Remember, what we give (share) comes back to us.
  4. Keep our Focus on the Light, it is the only way to see.

This ‘giving’ is the true meaning of ‘ for… giveness ‘.

Love is ‘for…giving’ ( for… sharing)(same thing)

May we go “Lightly” through the darkness.

Blessings on our journey

 

I lose focus. I get distracted easily, phone rings, doorbell rings, a leaf falls, a shiny bauble catches my eye…

I have to start all over again and again.

I feel discouraged , dis-heartened., even a bit frazzled at times. Where was I?

I know that feeling negative just attracts more negatives into my life.  But sometimes it just feels like it is easier to focus on all these negatives. There are just so many from which to choose. Maybe a bit of TV watching, bad idea, cancel, cancel, cancel.

I have a cup of tea and start all over from the beginning again.  But where was I? Focus, that’s it. I am constantly starting and re-starting even the most simple of tasks. At the end of the day sometimes I can’t find anything to be pleased about.

And then I remember the lyrics from an old song, ‘Accentuate the positive, eliminate the negative and don’t mess with Mister In-between’. Time to re focus, again.

After years of this behavior, I have come to realize the value of having a “touchstone”, a ‘Key Word’, to remind me of what I was supposed to be doing before getting distracted.

This Keyword, or focus point cat nappingis a short,  simple word or phrase upon which to attach my focus, like “Trash Out” or “feed cat”. The only trick is to remember the Focus word. But a simple word or phrase is a lot easier to recall.

Years ago there were a series of books, the 1 hour Manager, the 10 minute Manager, the 5 minute Manager.

I am now down to the 1 minute Manager. Considering nano-seconds as soon as there is a cheap way to measure them.

Focus, it all seems to be about Focus and how to avoid all of the never-ending distractions.

I would be very interested and pleased to hear about your idpuppy relaxing in reclinereas on Focus and how to keep on track, how to stay the course and actually get something done.

Ideas Please?!!
