I am going to say the prayer I use everyday, may every step I take be towards my higher self. May everything I write come from Love. May true love guide all my actions. May my love of nature help and stand by me.
Today we lost a family member due to covid, when I heard the news I got sad. And, then I starting judging and misjudging the situation. I got angry and upset about the whole thing. The whole time I was watching my self react, and I was ugly.
Then (after an hour) I paused, and told myself what are you doing? no matter what someone has lost a loved one. Where is your so called compassion?
When we are in spiritual journey, we get tested. To tell us see you still have this ego talking. I am so grateful the test came and I failed so miserably. Because, now my ego tells me I know better.
Then this post from an amazing soul came in my feed that I decided to share.
If you have lost a loved one I am so sorry for your loss. It happens so fast that you don’t get to say bye. Even if you do it’s from a distant.
Love each other unconditionally, even from distant show your compassion and love,
Gardening has always been a great passion for me. Its almost hardly a job but a way of paying respect to mother earth. Its a way of living that can bring communities together.
I remember growing up we used to share our fruits and vegetables with neighbors. My parents still do. They send a big box of grapes or peach to friends and neighbors.
Urban gardening at your home can be very beneficial. You have access to organic produce right in your home and it certainly tastes better. When you buy a produce at a store they need to pick it before its ripe but you can pick it on demand in your backyard. Or even get fresh fruits in farmers markets.
It’s a very efficient way of using land. Living in California lots of backyards have large areas for turf grass. Which seriously is not compatible with California’s weather.
And most importantly it is a way of healing. When you work with land you make friends with it. With every touch to the soil you make friends with the ecology around you.
We have come to such a distant between the elements that we have lost our way home. With working with nature and the elements we again make friends with it. 🙏
It doesnt need much, even if you dont have backyard grab a pot and plant some vegetables. 🙂
These past few months with the hitting of COVID 19 we see how much businesses are struggling, and I kept telling myself we need to support small businesses. local restaurants. And yet, whenever I wanted something, amazon looked like the easy place to go to order.
It took me some orders to make me realize there is nothing that necessary to make me want to order from amazon. Two, if I truly need something I can go and buy it from a local place. True, the prices might be a little higher but believe me in the long run you save a lot of money.
Here at states we are such good consumers, and that’s what we have been taught. Buy Buy Buy!
The benefits of shopping in person is:
1- In the long run we save money have your shopping list.
2- At least we see one person and have a small chat.
3- We save a lot of packaging and have less impact on nature.
4- Most importantly we support local businesses
I am not saying I would never purchase at amazon or online. No, there are times that online is the best option, but with awareness and acknowledgment we can have less damage on the environment and be support our local businesses.
I want to start this post with a question, “what is your medicine?”
I am not asking about your physician prescribed medicine. I am talking about the one that works and you know it does. Although we still like to pay our medical doctors.
Whenever I feel unorganized inside, my medicine is nature, to be in the presence of mother nature. To be in awe of its beauty, its love and grace. Whenever I feel super tired, I lean on a tree and absorb some of its healing prana’s. I make sure to thank the tree, because the tree doesn’t have to do this but they just do.
If you get a headache go outside and walk and imagine roots going down to mother earth, this will ground us. And make our mind more clear.
Btw, I am preaching now, I so many times forget to do these myself. Although when I do it works. 😀
Find your medicine, it can be taking care of someone, talking to a friend, sitting still, or being in nature.
May you be filled with the love of mother earth, make sure you know we need to respect mother earth. She has been giving all our life, the air, the food, the water and all the unlimited grace she has been providing her kids.
I am feeling such a deep grace in me today, the kind of grace that wants to make you cry. So, heartwarming and filled with divine love. The grace that feels like a spring rain.
Today we came together as a village, when you come together as a village there won’t be me or you. There will be union. There will be us, There will be “I”.
As the village comes together, we hold hands (these days virtually), and we heal. This is not my way, this was my grandmothers way.
We live in a world where we talk about my bubble, We talk about I. I. I. and the community is losing its color. But, now more than anytime we need to be together. We need to remember its not social distancing it’s physical distancing. We need to open our hearts, believe me there is enough space for the whole word inside your heart. As you open your heart to the realty of the world, you will be accomplished with acceptance, and you will receive the love you put out to the world ten times more.
Have your village, and hopefully someday our villages can be as big as the whole world. May divine love surround you, as you surround your divine love with the world. May you be filled with divine grace,
A friend is going through some challenging time, and one of the things which came to mind for her was setting up a prayer with some friends to pray for her health.
Then I was thinking the whole day how to set up the pray. As I was talking to a friend she asked me how did your grandmother pray?!
Have you noticed when a question is asked where you needed to hear the question, to make you pause. Stop, breath!
My grandmother’s prayer used to come from a deeper faith. That everything is being taken care of. That, her prayer is the purest thing and the God will hear it and maybe that’s why she got her answers, she just knew that her prayers are being heard. She didn’t need to set up zoom meeting to pray, her every walk was prayer.
And then my prayers, I am doing the prayer. I am thinking I am praying. I need to set up, write what I am gonna say during my prayer. And just beg please hear me.
So, Next time we are praying. Lets pray for that amazing higher consciousness that everything is being taken care of. From a deep faith. From that deep pause, deep breath, may your prayer be in its path by a deep inner joy and inner peace. You know what, everything is just the way it suppose to be, everything is being take care of.
So many times I have been told to talk, to speak. Always I have told myself, I am not ready yet. Let’s wait. I need to get more ready, more this or that..
Yesterday I was thinking what if somebody at this moment gave me the mic and told me to talk, what would I say. And oh my, I do have things to say,,,
We are living in Corona-virus time, so many debates on whether it is man made, animal made, whatever made, for now we won’t know this.
What we know is that we have been forced to stay in, we have been forced to deal with our emotions, our fears. Because, if we don’t God it can take us over. We are to face some challenges. We know that we are forced to change our positions, mothers are teachers now, kids are home instead of school exploring real things. Dads, well they are working from their laptops. So many times, I have found myself going from this online meeting to the other and it gets exhausting, and I found myself going out for a walk, breathing deep. That is when I listen to my body!
What I know is that we need to be with nature but in a more gentle way. We need to know its not us taking care of the earth, it is the earth taking care of us as well. And oh my oh my have we messed up enough! Get your shit together, be friends with nature, Love it, nurture it. We are in no sense superior to any being. Every being every creature has its beautiful right to be here now, just like you. Cherish every breath and know that you are sharing that breath with every cell in your body. Every amazingly intelligently cell in your body. In my next post I will write about how to be with nature.
So now you have the mic, talk and speak your truth.
Yesterday, after I poured the coffee I saw this at the end of the cup,
To me it looks like Tree of Life. Tree of life is one of the signs which I see in so many places. I know what it represents but I don’t know the deep meaning of it. I need to look more into it, and if you do please let me know.
Tree of life, to me, means life, means being rooted in this beautiful planet with mother nature and having your leaf and hands up in the sky with God. Being Life, being I.
Ocean has different states, sometimes the waves are big, sometimes very calm. sometimes quiet sometimes loud. Whatever the state it always goes back to it’s home, it’s essence, being ocean.
We as humans are the same, sometimes we have large waves sometimes calm. And just like ocean at the end we are home too. We are the soul. As we practice more we become more and more connected to our higher soul. our source.
