RUMI POEM # ON THE DAY I DIE #






















I’m standing in a kind of church, there are many people around. Suddenly two Amazonian rain forest women are standing in front of me. Their bodies are painted white. Their faces are also painted white in the tradition of Las Dias De Las Muertos (Day of the Dead), but decorated with colourful flowers petals. Whilst they’re smiling so gently to me with their peaceful eyes, I recognise them as Ma and Johanna. After I've recognised them they run away hand in hand. Nobody else saw them, nor did they show themselves to anyone else. I wasn't to sad as their hello and goodbye had filled me with a warm and loving feeling. They'd shown me that they were together again and free of pain…

I dreamed this 6 nights before my sister Johanna past away. I was with her when she did.
I felt our mother the night before my sister died in the hospital room, 
letting me know that she came to collect her soon.

# In memory of my mother  Jeanne 1-4-2011//1-4-2016
and my sister Johanna Maria 20-12-2011// 20-12-16 #

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

On the day I die, when I'm being

carried away toward the grave, don't weep.

Don't say, " He's gone! He's gone!"

Death has nothing to do with going away.


The sun sets and the moon sets,

but they have not gone.

Death is a coming together.

The tomb looks like a prison,

but it's really release

into Union


The human seed goes down in the ground

like a bucket into the well where Joseph is.

It grows and comes up full

of some un-imagined beauty.


Your mouth closes here

and immediately opens

with a shout of joy there.

LIFE IS A SACRED JOURNEY/LOVE IS THE ESSENCE OF THE SOUL CHRYSALIS

All is sacred, so are You. People are basically loving and born with the potential to be kind.
Every thought of our spirit birth an emotion inside our body, which translates that feeling to our hearts and hopefully moves our mind into positive conscious action…

EMPTINESS




Emptiness is a name for nothingness.
A name for ungraspability.

A name for mountains, rivers, the whole earth.
It is also called the real form.

In the green of the pines.
The twist of the brambles.

There is no going or coming:
In the red of the flowers.

And the white of the snow.
There is no birth and no death.

Ryusai.

A WINTER DUAL DELIGHT

The feathery snowflakes fell to earth
     Throughout the Winter night,
     And by the following morning
       The countryside was white.
      A quiet beauty filled the air
        Across the country land
  But then the wind began to blow;
       Snow drifted like the sand.
 The winds created snow drifts high
            In various designs.
Huge snowdrifts, snowdrifts everywhere,
            But just one of a kind,
 The downy flakes that fell from Heaven
     Brought with them delight...
             A terra firma coverlet
      And snowdrifts, sculpture-like.

LOVE TREATMENT / LOUISE HAY

Image result for louise hay quote deep in the center of my being

DEEP AT THE CENTER OF MY BEING, there is an infinite well of love. I now allow this love to flow to the surface. It fills my heart , my body, my mind, my consciousness, my very being, and radiates out from me in all directions and returns to me multiplied. The more love I use and give, the more I have to give, the supply is endless.

The use of love makes ME FEEL GOOD, it is an expression of my inner joy.

I love myself; therefore, I take loving care of my body. I lovingly feed it nourishing foods and beverages, I lovingly groom it and dress it, and my body lovingly responds to me with vibrant health and energy.

I love myself; therefore, I provide for myself a comfortable  home, one that fills all my needs and is a pleasure to be in. I fill the rooms with the vibration of love so that all who enter, myself included, will feel this love and be nourished by it.

I love myself; therefore, I work at a job that I truly enjoy doing, one that uses my creative talents and abilities, working with and for people that I love and that love me, and earning a good income.

I love myself; therefore, I behave and think in a loving way to all people, for I know that that which I give you returns to me multiplied. I only attract loving people in my world, for they are a mirror of what I am.

I love myself; therefore, I forgive and totally release the past and all past experiences and I am free.

I love myself; therefore, I live totally in the now, experiencing each moment as good and knowing that my future is bright and joyous and secure, for I am a beloved child of the universe and the universe lovingly takes care of me and forever more.      
                                            And so it is ~     I LOVE YOU        ~ Poem by Louise Hay ~

YOU DON'T HAVE TO WAIT FOR SOMEONE ELSE TO GIVE YOU PERMISSION HOW TO LIVE YOUR LIFE

Honestly, you got permission to live your life on your day of birth. Use your knowledge of that freedom as you can remember it. Follow your heart, that compass of love and respect, your intuition, your spirited mind. Maintain a positive attitude, use your birthright with wisdom and kindness during your life. Dig deep down in your own being and create your own magical story. Make the best of who you are, that is why you are here. Just be nice and respectful towards yourself and others, that is what is most important. Along your journey pick up some kindness and spread it around like stardust. Wherever you go, sparkle and shine your magic...

ENERGY ALWAYS FOLLOWS INTENT


Image result for energy always follows intent

Energy always follows intent. Believe me, there is ALWAYS a way out, when you are willing to look at yourself and want to change your behaviour, not the behaviour of others. Give ‘your self’ loving time and understanding. If you feel you can’t do it alone, look for help.


When you begin to talk about your experiences, you might be surprised that others sincerely want to listen. Te ones who are listening may have experienced similar things and may totally understand you, or they may have had a happy upbringing and just want to be there for you. When you begin to trust them, you will start to feel better. 


Slowly you will come to understand that you are not as alone as you always thought you were. Thoughts of fear and guilt can transform. The day will come when you can feel the true essence of who you are, a ‘beauty-full’ being of love and light. You may welcome your true self with tears or with a smile. Embrace yourself as you would welcome your best friend.

IT IS NEVER TO LATE TO GIVE YOURSELF SOME CREDIT

Don’t wait for others to give you what it is you need to feel good about yourself.
Learn to like or love yourself. Love is not a give and take, but a sharing of what we
cherish. This gift was ours at birth. We are all born whole, but negative influences
may have distorted our self-image. To give back to yourself what you have lost or
feel you’ve lost along the way is the most important gift you can give yourself. What
kind of gifts do you need to bring your self back into balance? Are they emotional,
spiritual or materialistic? Whatever form they take, you know yourself.


DO THIS EXERCISE WITHOUT JUDGING YOURSELF OR OTHERS 


1. Think about all the things you didn’t get when you were a child or a teenager,
or at whichever stage in your life you felt neglected. For example, was it the red
shoes you didn’t get, or the blue bike? Was it a hug, the ‘well done’ pat on the
shoulder, or a compliment you were longing for?


2. Make a list of the things that you didn’t get but feel you need today to make
your life happier and whole again, then meditate on them.


3. Once a week, take one or two things on your list and find a practical way to
give these to your inner child. This will help you as an adult to feel better about
yourself.


Give in whichever way feels good to you. Let the child and the adult reach out to
each other in kindness and understanding so they can integrate into a whole. When
they come together as a unity, you won’t be afraid, angry or sad anymore. You feel
stronger, braver and happier. 


Tell yourself that you do not want to suffer anymore of anger, depression, 
fear, sadness or low self-esteem or whatever else is holding you
back from learning to be kinder to yourself.


If you find it difficult to visualise this, think about how you would feel if you
saw a child crying out in fear. Imagine how you could help this child, offering them
kindness, understanding and respect. When you visualise this, translate it to you
your own frightened, angry or sad inner child. Don’t rush yourself. Give yourself
enough time to find your own answers. Wrap yourself in a supportive and calm
energy.


At the same time, don’t give yourself too much time, because then you will be
giving too much to that highly skilled child who has learned to survive with all its
tricks and excuses. In your own time remind your inner child to understand that he
or she has safely grown up into an adult in both mind and body.
  



DO NOT ALLOW YOUR UNHAPPY INNER CHILD TO RULE YOUR ADULT LIFE 

See how you feel the first time you give something to yourself that you thought you
had lost for ever. You will no longer have to wait for someone else to give it to you.
Learning to decipher what you feel and think, trusting your own emotions and decisions can make you feel good and confident again.


If you are not into this kind of exercise and you feel you need something else,
break your silence and look for someone to help you.

Nowadays this is more accepted and it is seen as a sign of strength to ask for help. 
There are so many different therapies available to help you voice your pain,
in order to free your spirit from the obstacles in your life.
Don’t stay stuck in the barren nest you have lived in unhappily
for so long. It is time to take positive control of your adult life.

Desiderata

Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others,
even to the dull and ignorant; they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter,
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.

Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs,
for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
many persons strive for high ideals,
and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection.
Neither be cynical about love;
for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment
it is as perennial as the grass.
Take kindly the counsel of the years,
gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.

Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself.
You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be.
And whatever your labors and aspirations,
in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace with your soul.
With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world.
Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.

Poem by Max Ehrmann
