Season of Nonviolence (SNV): Day 12 – Groundedness

Day 12 – Groundedness: Gandhi said, “To forget how to dig the earth and tend the soil is to forget ourselves.”  This is how we are going to feel grounded, like a tree planted in the earth.  Stand up straight and close your eyes.  Imagine your body is a tree.  Send down roots into the soil, feel the sun shining from above.  Feel your branches and leaves blowing in the wind.

Look at the trees, look at the birds, look at the clouds, look at the stars… and if you have eyes you will be able to see that the whole existence is joyful.  Everything is simply happy.  Trees are happy for no reason; they are not going to become prime ministers or presidents and they are not going to become rich and they will never have any bank balance.  It is simply unbelievable how happy trees are.  ~Osho

Season of Nonviolence (SNV): Day 10 – Faith

Day 10- FAITH: When Caesar Chavez was organizing farm workers, he taught them to say, “Si, se puede,” “Yes, it is possible,” when they didn’t know how they would overcome an obstacle.  Today let’s say, “Yes, it is possible,” to every obstacle we meet.  Now, write down three things that are hard for you.  After each one, write “It is possible for me to overcome this obstacle and be successful.”

“Nothing is impossible, the word itself says, ‘I’m possible’!” – Audrey Hepburn

1) I am in a career transition and have many ideas of how I envision next phase of my work life, but not exactly sure how to encompass all things (working with people with mental illness and other disabilities, teaching mindfulness practice to help people reduce stress and manage their thoughts, coaching people on holistic healthily living, etc.)  into one job. All that I want to do falls under the Wellness umbrella. I am very new to the city I now call home, so one thing I am doing is volunteering with different agencies in my area of interest to gather info on how they provide service to their clients. Other than that, I am staying open to the possibilities and going with the flow knowing that, in time, things will fall into place. – It is possible for me to overcome this obstacle and be successful.

2) On the fitness level, I find it difficult to walk/run like I used to due to experiencing constant (every second of my waking hours) pain in my right knee after knee surgery. Well, the knee surgery was in 2006, but in 2014 I live with pain everyday. Doctors I have visited can’t seem to tell me why the pain won’t go away, so I live with it. I try other activities, but the pain persists. – It is possible for me to overcome this obstacle and be successful.

3) I have been living with depression (diagnosed) for many years. Everyday is a challenge just to get out of bed to get the day started. – It is possible for me to overcome this obstacle and be successful.

“It is very important to generate a good attitude and a good heart as much as possible. From this, happiness in both the short-term and the long-term for both yourself and others will come.” His Holiness the Dalai Lama

Tomorrow’s Preview: Day 11  CONTEMPLATION:  “As a man thinketh in his heart, so he is”.  Let your mind be fed by “whatsoever is good and beautiful.”

Daily Prompt: Wake Up To Inspiration

Here is a small sample of what I have on my bedroom wall. I like to wake up and start my day with color and positive thoughts. Since I am renting and not allowed to paint the walls (probably a good thing since I like to change things quite frequently), I decided to have color through pictures and posters that moves me. Because I am easily bored looking at the same thing everyday, I decided to laminate the images so it’s easier to move them around or change them out (don’t have to worry about wrinkling or tearing). Moving them around/change them out gives me new perspectives of what I am viewing.
