IN THIS EARLY MORNING SUNSHINE

A SOUL STEPS OUT IN TIME

BODIES COMPEL A MUSIC

THE HARMONY IS SUBLIME

 

IN THIS EARLY MORNING SUNSHINE

LOVE DANCES WITH EVERY KIND

TO ONE PECULIAR RHYTHM

FELT UNIQUELY IN EVERY MIND

 

IN THIS EARLY MORNING SUNSHINE

A SPIRIT BREATHES DIVINE

SO BEAUTIFUL A MELODY

ALL LIFE DESIGNS THE LINE

 

THIS EARLY MORNING SUNSHINE

SINGS A SONG – “THE UNI-VERSE”

WHO DRINKS EVERY NOTE OF LOVE-LIGHT

TO QUENCH AN EVERLASTING THIRST

Self-control is not about surpressing emotions or tolerating the pressure of circumstances. Self-control is to be the creator of your thoughts and feelings, to be creative and find new answers. This helps you to remain calm and cool.

I SEE MYSELF IN THEE

 

like sun reflects on water

like birds do fly

my life as seen in life’s mirror

my thoughts and I

 

I see myself in thee

 

like dawn clears the darkness

shapeless motion, waves at sea

my thanks to my “CREATOR”

relieve my sadness

 

and see myself in thee

 

like mountains towering high above

a tree, t’was once a seed

and so, I part of love

Almighty tends all needs

 

reveal thyself in me

 

like wind

abstract yet compulsory

for each and every kin

friend, foe, adversary

all power lies within

indeed……

 

I am in thee!

One of the deepest habits we learn is interfering in others’ lives. Even if we are not actively interfering there is a good chance it’s happening in our heads. Then, when people don’t do what we want them to do, which is usually all the time, our ability to relax is non existent.

If you want to interfere successfully in someone else’s life, try this loveful approach. It begins with acceptance, continues with acknowledgement, is empowered by appreciation and ends in actualisation.

Only in this way can we help others be all that they can possibly be, and what else is life for, but to help others to be all that they can be. Only by making love practical in this way, can we heal our own habits of criticism, envy and blame. Accept, acknowledge and appreciate. It doesn’t mean you have to agree, comply or condone. The paradox is that we ourselves will receive the same in the process, not only from ourselves, as we become what we give, but from others along the way. Why? It’s the law!

Whether you believe in God or not is not important. Belief can be an obstacle to experience. The main thing is to keep an open mind, and be willing to start the conversation.

The experience of so many people is that when they engage in a mental conversation, whether it’s with a question or simply sharing what is in their heart, they get a reply. This is God as a personal experience, not just a voice in your head. Not your higher self. But the presence of the Source in your life.

God is not a concept, or a belief. You cannot have a conversation with a concept. You cannot have a meaningful relationship with a belief. Worth a try? Dear God…..

It is easy to raise our voices and complain when we encounter someone else’s negativity. This disturbs our own inner calm and we become caught up with that negativity, When thrown off balance in this way, we are unable to give the other person the support he or she needs.

When someone is doing something wrong, I need to see what I can do to help that person, There is surely something I can contribute toward the growth of each and every human being. When I focus on how best is it to offer my help, I do not become caught up with negativity and I can transform the situation into one that benefits us both.

Only when we find the quietness in our own minds can we begin to hear our inner teacher, so that we may receive some in-tuition. Only when we are ready to recognise and value the wisdom that we carry at the core of our being will we turn our attention inwards and ‘listen in’.

But it’s been a long time since we truly listened, so a little practice and patience will be needed. Sit down, be quiet and listen in at some point today and you might be surprised at what you hear. Then do it again tomorrow. All you need to do is remember that you are the listener and not the noise.

In the midst of uncertainty, keep determination in your thoughts and that will become like a guiding light in front of you.

Reading or listening to something good everyday will keep my mind healthy and happy. Thinking good thoughts over helps me to remember what I have heard. Then I become so healthy that when difficult situations come my way I have the inner strength to face them.

Patience teaches us to sow the seed in the form of right actions and to allow the fruits of those actions to ripen in their own time.

I don’t need to think about the future benefits of what I do now, because I know I will receive what I need when the time is right.

If I let go of expectations and allow things to develop in their own time, I will be able to enjoy what I am doing in the present, and the future will automatically become good.
