Thankfulness and Gratitude!

“Both abundance and lack exist simultaneously in our lives, as parallel realities. It is always our conscious choice which secret garden we will tend… when we choose not to focus on what is missing from our lives but are grateful for the abundance that’s present — love, health, family, friends, work, the joys of nature and personal pursuits that bring us pleasure — the wasteland of illusion falls away and we experience Heaven on earth.”

~Sarah Ban Breathnach~

Be Thankful

Be thankful that you don’t already have everything you desire,
If you did, what would there be to look forward to?

Be thankful when you don’t know something
For it gives you the opportunity to learn.

Be thankful for the difficult times.
During those times you grow.

Be thankful for your limitations
Because they give you opportunities for improvement.

Be thankful for each new challenge
Because it will build your strength and character.

Be thankful for your mistakes
They will teach you valuable lessons.

Be thankful when you’re tired and weary
Because it means you’ve made a difference.

It is easy to be thankful for the good things.
A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who are
also thankful for the setbacks.

GRATITUDE can turn a negative into a positive.
Find a way to be thankful for your troubles
and they can become your blessings.

A sheltering Angel so nothing can harm you.

The Secret Garden

The Secret Garden
By Ara John Movsesian

There is a light that shows me the way,
To a secret garden, with a fragrant bouquet,
And as I enter through its welcoming gates,
To savor all that for me awaits -
I can't help but wonder why the light chose me
Why fate gave me the Garden's key.
For whatever the reason, this much I know,
It is a lovely place where I love to go -
A garden full of life's delights -
Of tenderness and wondrous nights.

A garden in which to nourish my soul;
A place to go to make me whole
Where the warming light becons me stay
Where always it is Valentine's Day.
Time has shown me this simple truth,
That the light that shines from high above -
That leads me to this garden each day
Is the nurturing light of your infinite love.

The Presence of Love by Samuel Taylor Colderidge

And in Life's noisiest hour,
There whispers still the ceaseless Love of Thee,
The heart's Self-solace and soliloquy.

You mould my hopes, you fashion me within;
And to the leading Love-throb in the Heart
Thro' all my Being, thro' my pulse's beat;
You lie in all my many Thoughts, like Light,
Like the fair light of Dawn, or summer Eve
On rippling Stream, or cloud-reflecting Lake.

And looking to the Heaven, that bends above you,
How oft! I bless the Lot that made me love you.

Parting by Charlotte Bronte

“Ever has it been that love knows not its own depth until the hour of separation.”

~ Kahlil Gibran ~

As we journey through life we develop relationships with others. Some of these relationships do not last and it may leave a deep scar on our hearts. We suffer from negative emotions such as a loss of self-confidence, self-loathing, guilt, bitterness, anguish and anger.

“Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up.”

~ Neil Gaiman ~

The most important lessons we learn in our lifetime are from relationships.
“The greatest tragedy of life is not that men perish, but that they cease to love.”

~ W. Somerset Maugham ~

When a relationship comes to an end, it means that these two souls have learnt all of the lessons that they were meant to teach each other. It becomes necessary to let go and move on. There is always another soul waiting to join you and love you as you continue on your journey.

The most important lesson that we can learn from every relationship is to love ourselves as every relationship we have with another, reflects back aspects of ourselves.

When we begin to truly accept and love ourselves and see ourselves as loving, pure, kind, positive and creative souls, only then will we be able to magnetise that one soul who is the identical and perfect match to us.

“An act of love that fails is just as much a part of the divine life as an act of love that succeeds, for love is measured by fullness, not by reception.”

~ Harold Loukes ~

 When a soul clings to a broken relationship it hampers the soul and prevents it from meeting that one perfect match for it.

“Some of us think holding on makes us strong;
 but sometimes it is letting go.”

~ Hermann Hesse ~

 We must continue to love for if we don’t open our hearts to receive and give love, the soul will never grow and will not be able to experience the Divine.


THERE'S no use in weeping,
Though we are condemned to part:
There's such a thing as keeping
A remembrance in one's heart:

There's such a thing as dwelling
On the thought ourselves have nurs'd,
And with scorn and courage telling
The world to do its worst.

We'll not let its follies grieve us,
We'll just take them as they come;
And then every day will leave us
A merry laugh for home.

When we've left each friend and brother,
When we're parted wide and far,
We will think of one another,
As even better than we are.

Every glorious sight above us,
Every pleasant sight beneath,
We'll connect with those that love us,
Whom we truly love till death !

In the evening, when we're sitting
By the fire perchance alone,
Then shall heart with warm heart meeting,
Give responsive tone for tone.

We can burst the bonds which chain us,
Which cold human hands have wrought,
And where none shall dare restrain us
We can meet again, in thought.

So there's no use in weeping,
Bear a cheerful spirit still;
Never doubt that Fate is keeping
Future good for present ill !

Happiness and Bliss!

"Happiness is a state of the mind;
it just depends on how open your mind is
 to receiving all that happiness has to offer."

We are spiritual beings living in a material world and some of us have lost our spiritual connection and so we choose to cling to what we can see, touch, and feel; physically. Material things in this moment of our reality are only but a fleeting moment of pleasure to our souls. I would describe it as a butterfly flying past our soul touching it ever so softly and quickly; in that moment it tickles and tantalises us, but then it is gone with in a flash as it flies away quickly. There is no lasting effect or true happiness when we focus on material things.

No happiness can be achieved through the body either. The body only gives us a moment of pleasure as it does with pain. We live in a world of duality the same degree of happiness we experience will ultimately result with the same amount of pain we experience in the physical world.

When our minds are closed or asleep we tend to concentrate on the feelings of our body such as food and sex. It’s a seeking of pleasure rather than a discovery of happiness. If the need for sex is repressed then we become addicted to food and vice versa. The energy within us swings like a pendulum. Sexual energy accumulates making us tense and heavy giving us a need to release it. The need is never satisfied and the feeling of ecstasy can never be kept. The pleasure of these experiences can never be relieved or satisfied as the tension and need within us keeps returning to us.

“The man who is asleep,
his sexuality is nothing but a relief,
like a good sneeze.
 It gives you nothing but a certain relief.
 A tension was there, now it is no more there;
 but it will accumulate again.
 Food gives you only a little taste on the tongue;
 it is not much to live for.
But many people are living only to eat;
there are very few people who eat to live.”

By Osho

Only when our minds are open and we connect with our spiritual selves, our souls and our connection to source will we then be able to experience the climax of true happiness in other words bliss.

When we’re in a state of happiness we are able to appreciate music and poetry more. Our creativity is enhanced and we find the beauty in nature exhilarating. Silence for our minds also brings us happiness. We find things that we had never enjoyed before and this becomes far more lasting.

Happiness becomes more of a quality and less of quantity; it’s more psychological and less physiological. The difference between pleasure and true happiness is an enrichment to the soul rather than a mere tantalise or relief to it.

When we’re in a happy state we become full and overflowing. Listening to beautiful music triggers a harmony within us and we become more musical. Our bodies instantly respond as our soul rejoices to the wonderful sounds the music is vibrating to it. We may even begin to sway or dance. Our bodies become weightless no gravity can hold us as we move into a different space or realm. Even if the music stops the lingering continues. This state is far higher and far more profound and deeper that any mere pleasure can give us.

When we are able to consciously live in the moment of our reality not looking back in the past or towards the future but enjoying and becoming the moment, and connecting with our soul and with source in our immediate moment, only then we will be able to achieve true bliss. Happiness gives us a leg up to reach a higher state of consciousness that enables us to achieve bliss, the true happiness within. Remember bliss is divine. It gives us freedom; we can move forward; it gives us wings to fly and it enables us to discover so much more about ourselves. We become the light and the joy. Bliss becomes us; it is our being; our nature. To attain it, is to touch God.
