Meditation Flash Mob Trafalgar Square, London

 

This was organised by Wake Up London, who are themselves part of http://www.wkup.org

I hope there are more to come. And I hope these sort of meditations in public help cultivate a collective consciousness.

The commentary here by Naseem Khan provides insight on her perspective, which ended:

I don’t know if the exercise showed anybody anything or made any point at all. But I do know that for me it was a half an hour of purest sanity.

Developing Self-Discipline

 

 

 

My focus for the next month is Self-Discipline. I found this text (link below) by Chuck Gallozzi quite helpful.

Developing Self-Discipline.

“Will is character in action (William Mcdougall) 

When British psychologist William Mcdougall (1871 ~ 1938) said, “Will is character in action,” what did he mean? Simply that willpower is the source of our action, and, therefore, the source of our character. For when we will to do good, and do so, we have good character, but when we will to neglect our responsibilities, we have bad character.”……….

 

 

 

 

Create my Life

 

1    Summary

Summary : To go forward with certainty in any aspect of my life I need to live from my (1) Spirit, have a strong (2) Will and be free from any disabling habits or (3) addictions. I can then make committed decisions with developing any aspect in my life.

  1. Understand and develop the qualities of Spirit
  2. Strengthen the Will through discipline
  3. Destroy any bad habits or addictions

 

2    Narrative

I want to create my Life. I want to do the things that energise me, motivate and inspire me and keep my Life in alignment with my Spirit. I want to do the things that help me fulfil my purpose and achieve my potential.

To affect change and create any aspect of my Life, I must strengthen my sense of self-worth and I must practice the art of living my life in the present. This two-pronged approach changes the truth about me and therefore my self-esteem and beliefs.

I want to achieve a balanced life, where

  1. My lifestyle is an extension of my Spirit
  2. My finances enable me and my family to live comfortably
  3. I have people in my life who support me
  4. I am free to love and be loved and practice giving it unconditionally
  5. My strength of character and depth of knowledge compliments me
  6. My physical and mental states benefit from good health

     

I am learning to create peace, confidence, love, joy and strength within myself, and in the experiences of my Life. I am starting to create a strong foundation that will strengthen my confidence and my Will to live from my Spirit and from there aspire to achieve the balanced life I desire. I will learn to approach all aspects of my life with peace, confidence, love, joy and strength as well as other qualities of my spirit.

I must remain aware of the principles that will guide me on a steady path to the uncovering of the qualities peace, confidence, love, joy and strength. Some of these principles provide the tools that can help align oneself with the truth of the Spirit while empowering one to aspire and achieve our goals and purpose.

 

3    Guiding Principles

Gratitude – Give thanks for the miracle of your life, for the abundance, opportunities and challenges that each day presents

Respect and love yourself – Be gentle with yourself and allow yourself the rights and responsibilities of being human

Be Aware – and in the present moment. Be a steward of your thoughts and feelings, and entertain only those that empower you. Appreciate your life now.

Positive Mental Attitude – Focus on the solution rather than the problem, and on your best intentions

Empower your state – Change your focus, your physiology and your language whenever you need to change your state in a moment

Faith – What must you believe in order to experience your true life? Consciously guide your beliefs so that they empower you, and question any belief that may hold you back

Strengthen The Will – Do the things that need to be done, and say no to temptations at every opportunity

Reflections on Abundance

 

I love who I am and what I have attracted to myself up till now. I do not need another thing or even one tiny change in order to be happy or complete. I know in my heart that I am not going to get it all, but that I truly am it already. The Universe is endless, eternal energy, like myself, therefore, I am also without boundaries and unlimited.

 

Thus I draw to myself what I need naturally, which I use and enjoy and then let go to be re-cycled back again into the energy field of the Universe.

 

Accepting and recognizing what is available in my own personal world of abundance; I see and appreciate the value and role of my qualities, virtues and awareness. I also acknowledge the help and support of those around me. I give thanks for my health and personal freedoms. I also begin to see what I can contribute to others and the world around.

I recognise the reservoir of huge potential that is deep within me. And so I open myself to the powerful energies of love and peace and inner bliss and experience these; and as I allow these to emerge and express their strength, vitality and power; automatically they begin to remove and shift the restrictive blocks and barriers of the past, so enabling me to move into a life of peace, power and greater fulfilment.

I am the Captain of my Ship, the navigator of my Journey

“You are what you love, not what loves you” from the 2002 movie Adaption, as a brother tries to explain his philosophy on life.

There’s an empowering feeling which this thought brings, it tells me that I am the master of my reality and that my values can bring me happiness, if I live them.

As time reached February 2006, I was sad and in my mid-twenties. I felt like I was a destroyed and abandoned, carried far away by the currents of time and space, and I was very confused about where I was and how I had gotten there.

Little did I know of the forces that eventually crashed my ship in to some rocky shore. I was not aware that I was a child of the Universe, where energy is constantly in flow and I did not know I was on a Ship, amidst the currents of the Universe.

From the hull that keeps the Ship afloat to the sails that harness the winds energy I have re-built by Ship part by part.

By being aware I am learning to keep afloat, by disciplining the Will I am learning to steer my Ship. I ride the waves gently but surely and I take care of my Ship with love.

Life’s energy is like the vast Ocean, always moving and unpredictable. I could be sailing for days or weeks without any sign of my desired destination. Yet surely, this is what by gone navigators experienced, and through perseverance, confidence and a love for the Ocean they would eventually reach some destination, if not the expected one.

Through quite confidence and humble gratitude I am learning to be my own guide, but with an open mind which will allow me to be thankful for all that I experience and allow me to appreciate the abundance of life’s offerings.

As I awaken and begin to create my life, I want to keep a journal of my experiences and my journey. Perhaps, you will find some of what I write useful for yourown journey.
