Letter to myself.

Everyday is another chance to try this all again

Please be focussed Nina

Not all is lost; all is to gain from this pain

It is very true that the lotus can only bloom from the mud

Let your mind be free from this; you can always be free

Anytime you want; but you must learn

Lust not for anything but good health,

Honesty and love and wisdom

This is a letter to you sweet Nina

To take care of yourself and take care of this life

Heart beats like drums and breathes a breath of pure life

Carry on with your blazing torch

I promise you a better tomorrow.

 

Love,

Yourself

Change Your Emotions – Great Middle Way

To manifest any given emotional state, we develop a pattern:

We focus our attention on a specific feeling (pleasant or unpleasant) and magnify it.

We generate a supporting discursive thought process and identify with it.

We assume a compatible breath pattern and physical posture.

If you want to change your emotional state, change your focus, your self-talk, your breath, and your posture.

The Inner Child by Goodnightnina

In a sense I am lost; feeling childlike in constant exploring of earth and oneself. I am, in a sense found; by my morality with love…and with compassion… I find myself restless in time, for time is complex. The mind cannot comprehend time nor comprehend anything in completeness. The Tao of existence unwordable, incomprehensible…

We are not all knowing beings but the fabric of existence has underlying comfort whether it is productive or not. Even terrible mistakes create great lessons. The child knows love most, your inner child craves it.

Life is complex in a mathematical sense but extremely simple in the aspect of conscious thought.

That being all that we have.

I trust this universe more than I trust myself. I say this in a sense that I do not feel in control, but the rain outside my window… it is bringing life to the earth; as is the sun, moon and the stars. Endless bounded in infinity… ; that is something I can trust. Allowing the universe to take control helps me in meditations and allowing what I cannot change.

Simplicity is bliss and sometimes in my childlike absence of self awareness, like when I draw a picture I am not drawing a picture. If I am absent and I perhaps simply am: the picture.

But as my inner child finishes the creation.

I must return to the grounding incomprehensible earth.

Here I am again.

In life, there will be times of failure, and times of regret. Times of frustration, and times of worry. Moments of insecurity and inadequacy plague even the most confident among us. We will all exp…

This is the law, ancient and inexhaustible – Zen Flash

We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts we make the world. Speak or act with an impure mind and trouble will follow you, as the wheel follows the ox that draws the cart.

Speak or act with a pure mind and happiness will follow you as your shadow, unshakable.“Look how he abused me and hurt me, how he threw me down and robbed me.” Live with such thoughts and you live in hate. Abandon such thoughts, and live in love.
In this world hate never yet dispelled hate. Only love dispels hate. This is the law, ancient and inexhaustible.

No Fear — Great Middle Way

From attachment springs fear. For one who is wholly free from attachment there is no grief, whence then fear? From lust springs grief, from lust springs fear. For one who is wholly free from lust there is no grief; whence then fear? From craving springs grief, from craving springs fear. For one who is […]
