DAY 356: Disinformation In The New Age

disinformation

Here’s a very interesting chapter about choosing the middle path.

The middle path requires awareness and increased consciousness which discourage disinformation.

“Because we have taken pieces of wisdom from different places, it does not always offer us a complete picture of the masters involved.

What many people may not even know is that many quotes that are floating around on the internet and which we believe are the words of our masters, are fake, misworded, or taken out of context (e.g. see FakeBuddhaQuotes.com).

While people may see this as a relatively trivial matter, it really isn’t.

After all, how would we feel if we saw a Facebook banner which displayed an image of Jesus with the quote ‘Ho, ho, ho, Merry Christmas! – Jesus Christ’?

[…]

While the answer is not likely not to be found in any kind of extreme, the disinformed new age appears to be split between the two ends of the spectrum: an ‘all spirit’ focus at one end (with ideals of love and light) and a hedonistic ‘all material’ focus at the other (with ideals of manifesting ‘unlimited’ abundance, fame, etc.).

There is one path we have yet to collectively try yet: the middle path that Buddha was known to speak of. The middle path leads us to a simple path; one not found in remaining disinformed, but in becoming enlightened.”

DAY 258: Let Go Of The Hot Coals Of Anger

hot coals

YOU are the sole creator of your life. Nobody else has the power to create YOUR life, but you. Not your parents, not your spouse/partner, not your job, not your bank account, not your friends or relatives; you are the one creating your experience.

Since you are the only person capable of shaping YOUR life, why are you REALLY angry with somebody else? You expected them to please you or at least meet you half way and when they did not comply, you felt hurt.

You had expectations of them and you got angry when THEY could not live up to YOUR expectation of what they were supposed to do.

Probably you did not have a choice in shaping your experiences as you grew up, as most children do not, but YOU DO have a choice now to let go of anger.

Your holding on to anger only hurts you. You are the one suffering.

Let go.

Buddha said:

“Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.”

365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 68: Emotional Cleansing Part 14 – Be the Hero of Your Life

RUCSANDRA's PICTURE

You can change what you think and what you feel to resonate with the powerful and high vibration of GRATITUDE.

Buddha said:

“Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn’t learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn’t learn a little, at least we didn’t get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn’t die; so, let us all be thankful.”

Every day and in every circumstance there is something to be grateful for. This way of thinking might initially create a lot of resistance. Some people refuse to find a reason to be thankful and so they choose to be victims. They believe that things happen to them, are being done to them. “How can I be grateful for the fact that I have this illness, or lost a loved one, or lost my job, or had parents who abused me, or that my alcoholic husband spent all my money?”

Even if you feel some resistance to the thought of feeling grateful for everything in your life, start with a small grateful step and keep going. Even in the darkest of times there is always something that you can be grateful for. I know this for a fact and from personal experience.

Gratitude has the power to cleanse your emotional lens. Think of gratitude as the master cleanser for your emotional life. When you are grateful for something that occurred in your life despite the fact that other people might think of it as a failure, tragedy or hardship, you are raising your vibration to the level of the Source Energy.

Nora Ephron says:

“Above all, be the heroine of your life, not the victim.”

The truth is that life will only look, feel and be the way you are willing to see it.

Life never treated you unfairly. Life offers you extraordinary opportunities to grow, in every single moment, with every single challenge. Gratitude pulverizes victimhood; it frees you up. The instant lift and rush of energy created by changing your thinking from victimhood to gratitude opens the door to your soul. You become the powerful creator of your own life, of your own reality. You become the hero of your life.

365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 50: Angry with Somebody Else?

RUCSANDRA's PICTURE

Today I am grateful for the understanding that I am the only creator of my life and the freedom that comes from releasing blame. I want you to fully let go of past hurt, anger and blame and feel the amount of inner power that comes from this healing.

In yesterday’s post I wrote that when anger comes up from somewhere deep inside yourself, there are two options:

1. You are angry with SOMEBODY ELSE for something they did or did not do

2. You are angry with YOURSELF for something you did or did not do

Today let’s look at OPTION 1: You are angry with SOMEBODY ELSE.

First of all, I want you to understand that nobody else has the power to create YOUR life, but you. Not your parents, not your spouse/partner, not your job, not your bank account, not your friends or relatives; you are the sole creator of your experience. When you feel confused and being pulled in several directions it is because you do not fully understand yet that only YOU have the capacity to create your life as you desire it to be.

YOU are the only creator of your life and you are responsible for YOUR happiness ONLY. If you take care of your well-being, fulfillment and happiness first, you empower others to do the same; you will always have the resources to assist others, to offer help from your heart and to make a difference.

You are NOT responsible for making others happy, or behave in ways that they agree with or approve of.

Your efforts must be directed towards your authenticity: saying what you are feeling, and acting in ways that RESPECT AND HONOR WHO YOU ARE. There is nothing bad or wrong with what you feel, it is just a signal that some adjustments needs to be done by you, in your life, in order to restore or create your well-being. There are no labels for what you feel. It is not good or bad, it just is what it this in the moment.

What matters is what you CHOOSE to do about what you are feeling.

With this understanding, let’s go back to your being angry with somebody else. Since you are the only person capable of shaping YOUR life, why are you REALLY angry with them? You expected them to please you or at least meet you half way. You laid a large burden on their shoulders to behave a certain way and when things got hard, you felt hurt.

You had expectations of them and you got angry when THEY could not live up to YOUR expectation of what they were supposed to do. All along, you were the only one responsible for making it better, for changing it, for standing up for yourself and for standing behind yourself.

Buddha said:

“Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.”

Let go of the hot coal! The other person does not feel its intense heat, YOU ARE GETTING BURNED BY IT.

You are making others responsible for making it better, or keeping others responsible for having made it so hard for you, when they are not.

YOU are creating YOUR LIFE and they are creating theirs. Others may or may not meet you half way.

By choosing to remain angry, you keep giving away your strength and life force.

Open your hand, let go of the hot coal and heal.

Love,

Rucsandra
