Quote of the Day – Elevate Your Mind Today By Lifting An Elephant With Your Finger

Feeling joyful and peaceful it can happen that we are suddenly overwhelmed by the angry outburst of one of our housemates. Ouch … The unreasonable behaviour of the other can cause such disturbing thoughts and feelings. Knowing that we did nothing ‘wrong’, it is difficult to prevent the pain and the interpretation that we were treated ‘unjustly’. And that intense reality of shocked feelings can occupy completely our mind like an octopus. Thinking for hours about what happened. Trying to give it a meaning and to store it away in a mental ‘box’. This can cause tiredness, a waste of energy and sometimes even a loss of the lust for life. These exhausting and repeating thoughts are blowing up the small situation into a monstrous ‘sculpture’. It is the same like when our mind experiences stress and worry: Little concerns can than be tranformed into major life problems. Indeed, it is ‘good’ to see the dangers and the risks of our journey. But our imagination – which can dream grand – has also the disability that it can turn a little mosquito into an immense elephant. We don’t have today to fear the ‘lions’ and ‘bears’. Nor do we have to fight the flying ‘fire-breathing dragons’. We can just walk on and realize that we are giants of invention, creativity and change. Our passion and progress can be contained in a body of flesh and blood, but it can’t be chained forever. So … Break free today! Elevate your mind! Imagine that you can lift an elephant with your little finger …

Quote of the Day – Discover Today the Bright Colours Between Black and White

Get rid of your sympathy and antipathy. They don’t help you to receive today the unexpected presents from people about who you was reasoning that they would never care about you. Your ‘black’ and ‘white’ feelings are the fruit of the hidden thought patterns of ‘good’ and ‘wrong’. Unaware you are constantly discerning, judging and condemning the behaviours of yourself and others. This creates division and distance, while your heart is desiring to make connection with others. True … It is a challenge to see glory in ‘ugliness’ and softness in ‘strength’ and some kindness in a ‘rude’ rabble … Be informed about the (dys-) functioning of your mind … And try to smile today when you are catching it red handed …

Quote of the Day – Cherish The Clean Up Crocodiles In The Conditioning Of Your Life

Cherish the annoying persons in your life. The easy way is to walk away and to leave them behind. Sometimes you have to do that to be really free. To overcome the limitations and barriers of an imprisoning or even abusive and killing environment. But the difficult road is to deal with those who are irritating and frustrating you. While they are not that ‘wild’ like you, they are also not your enemy of dumb dullness.
They are given to you as sharpening stones to polish you. To remove ‘old’ layers of conditioning. So that you can clean up your mess and improve your condition. You are not meant to live stealthy, but healthy. That means also: To be recognized, to be seen and to be heard. Give others the permission today to polish, cherish and nurture you! Let it just happen …

Quote of the Day – Reinvent and Re-Enter Today The Room of Restfulness Inside You

Be aware today of the silence inside you. Even when you are talking, be quiet. It gives you the opportunity and oxygen to be open for what is happening and to have the space to keep peace and pace with it. It prevents the impression that you have fallen behind and that you are in a hurry to answer. Your reaction will be than easily overdone or out of order. Breathe, listen, step back, try to overview the chain of events. Instead that intense thoughts and emotions are hostaging you, you can respond from a place of rest. You don’t have to step automatically in the rollercoaster of action, reaction and again action and reaction …

Quote of the Day – The Talk of Trash Turns The Bottom of Your Bottle Upside Down

The lesson of love and the force of forgiveness are learned in a context of conflict. The heat of the fight hisses and brings your sediment and sentiment to the surface.
