Stop Fighting, Start Loving (Part 2)

If you missed Part 1, you can go back and read it here.

How much more would you enjoy your life if nothing around you had to change in order for you to feel good and be happy?

I’m not saying every moment would be fluffy bunnies and rainbows, but any moment you want, whether you like what’s going on around you or not, the choice to be happy is yours, you just have to choose to accept the current circumstances… and make the decision to be happy, to Be More Loving, with no regard to circumstances whatsoever.

In choosing to Be More Loving, I didn’t magically stumble onto the secret to ‘happily ever after’ in the sense that I would never have problems or issues crop up in my life that make me unhappy or that I consider unpleasant to deal with.  What it meant was that I have available to me, at any time I so choose, an ‘easy button’ for Life.

Stop Fighting, Start Loving

This is the first part of a two-part post, part 2 of this post can be found here.

Poets and singers have been writing and singing about it, painters have been painting it, and human beings all over the world are making it, 24-hours a day… but what is ‘love’ to you?

Have you ever stopped to ask yourself what it means to you to give love? To be loved, as an adult?

Many of us have a long, laundry-list of what love is not, but how long is your list of what love IS?

I don’t know about you, but it’s much easier for me to be something, than to not be something.  It’s easier to be kind, than to not be mean.  It’s easier to be calm than not to panic.  It’s easier to be more understanding than to not be  frustrated, to think about what makes me happy, rather than not think about what’s making me angry.  Which is a long-winded way of saying:  Continue reading “Stop Fighting, Start Loving”

A Closer Look At Failure

What is failure?

Who decides whether we have, indeed, failed?

Who wrote your definitions of success and failure?

Was it you?  Was it your parents?  Your teachers?  Your priest?  Your wife?  Or perhaps the ethereal ‘they’ of society at large?

If it isn’t your own voice you hear calling you a success or a failure, first of all, you’re on the wrong channel, and you need to do some tuning on your dial.  If it’s your mom’s voice telling you you’re an idiot because you spilled something, tell that thought to fuck off while you clean up the mess, and ask yourself whether creating the mess makes you a success or a failure.

Madness Is Subjective

My husband, bless his heart, thinks I’m absolutely mental.  To him, LOA is absolute gibberish; pie-in-the-sky wishful thinking.

“I’m a realist,” he says.

This, despite the fact that I have PROVEN to him that a single sentence can alter his ‘reality’, at any given moment.  In fact, I do so on a regular basis.  This one sentence has become his mantra when he’s having a shit day at work:

“It could be worse, I could still be working with Mack.”

No matter how bad his day is going, if his problems are work-related, this single thought changes his reality and instantly pulls him into a higher vibration state.

Every.  Single.  Time.

In the face of that, to not be utterly awed by the possibility of what your life could become if you began to consciously monitor and change your thoughts, to pay attention to the frequency your thoughts are tuned to, and adjust them as needed to maintain a higher energy… to that, I say nay my love, nay!  I am not the mental one!

The following is the analogy I used during our most recent conversation… Continue reading “Madness Is Subjective”

Semantics

Since it’s part of the actual blog title, I figured I’d make my first ‘real’ post about semantics, and create a list to clear up a few things.  You’ll find out that I am a big fan of lists.  So far, I’ve managed to have one in every blog post!  Here’s another!

  • Vibration – Feelings = Emotion = Energy = Vibration = Frequency… I may use all of these words interchangeably.  This isn’t meant to be confusing.  They all mean the same thing to me, but each word may have a particular nuance that I am trying to get across.  Terms like ‘vibration’ and ‘frequency’ may seem a little too woo-woo for some of you, but rest assured that it’s just a new word for the same old energy.  “What’s wrong with the old words, then?” you might ask… and I’m glad you did!  The old words carry with them all of our old preconceptions, all of our old attachments to what something is; to what it feels like inside ourselves, what it feels like when we are receiving it from someone else.  Renaming the same old thing gives license to explore it in new ways, without being hindered by what it ‘should’ be.
