Dropping the Ego

Now is the moment… and dropping that overwhelming Ego.

What brings me to write this comes from two books

A NEW EARTH by Erkhart Tolle and

YOU ARE A BADASS how to stop doubting your greatness by Jen Sicaro

Both very much sum up our current situation in the world and that by finding our inner ‘being’ ie Stillness

This means dishing the hundred and one thoughts that the ego throws at us every day. Which only lead to hardship and unhappiness also outer happiness ie work, jobs, money are all cycles good and bad times loosing job or huge emotional upheaval after a bad relationship.

Can in many ways be a wake up call to finding true self but they are ever changing only through inner stillness being able to step back without emotion.

Being able to be amazed at the wonder of the body we currently inhabit through simple breathing exercises and finding ourselves living completely in the present without doubt or reliving past hardships or our past period.

That we can find harmony in ourselves in a way never found before and that our outer selves can then to be found with added depth. As to completely let go of the ego no matter how far down the journey you are is a liberating awakening of true wisdom and love.

As it allows growth concentration where once thoughts or that inner voice filled you with doubt and negativity. Positive vibes and as Tolle puts it enthusiasm and belief without ego centric power over taking this new knowledge.

Makes each and every person more awakened to how we can change this world for the better.

Jen Sicaro on the other hand brings in equal measure to love ourselves first and foremost that the universe is indeed plentiful. That it is our relationship and attitude towards life, relationships and money which keep many, many people forever recycling the same outcome and living our whole life on autopilot.

If we can combine actually loving ourselves to become butterflies and free spirits that we are all part of god, we are connected as one and to find our higher self to tune into what yoga/reiki itself opens us to.

The soul and how finely it touches our physical body and the environment around us, that it’s our emotions which rule the ego and to let go off this to connect to the soul. Concentrate on the here and now along with a healthy diet, being out in nature, spiritual pursuits and what feeds the soul not the ego.

We may indeed be able to make this a better world for us and the generations to come.

Climate Change

Climate Change

Today’s news is not surprising and though there was no mention of when the tilt would become unstoppable it is extremely worrying for mankind, nature and every living organism on this planet the effects can already be seen.

Yet the complacencies which have been there since the nineteen eighties and nineties still exists….

Plus it goes beyond government, whether we are rich or poor – its our children and there children who will be affected by the lack of movement on this front. Like the plastic debate these improvements could have been in place years earlier.

We are now playing catch up with nature itself and weather which can only become more harder to predict and flooding and drought increasing…..

Wind farms etc all renewables are here to stay, coal a by gone era but the implications are massive not only to people in low lying areas, but coral reefs, nature’s own mechanism will break down completely.

Unless we the people who call this earth home can put aside all differences from politics to religion and fully embrace the impact we have on the environment around us and it does not matter your class or background.

If we awaken our spirit and soul instead of making what appears to be a half hearted change, we might actually accomplish something for humanity. Instead of continually polluting and over riding nature by our excess living and need to urbanise everywhere.

The cost already has been much hurricanes, Forrest fires, flooding all nature’s way of saying that we are indeed devastating our planet at a momentous pace fuel, planes, carbon omissions must be flagged not just in the decade time frame given but far quicker.

To have any real hope we must work with scientists, environmentalists, natures advocates and find a way to enhance our world not destroy it. Governments the world over need to think along the same lines for one day it will impact far deeper than already is.

Plus make sure that electric cars, how we get from A to B whether in an urban jungle or countryside is truly feasible and operational to one and all. This area has improved greatly in

Last ten years along with renewables but to fully ascertain today’s predictions from the report.

The groundwork is still very substantial on all fronts, no matter what culture, government or anything else. We love or our home, our land, it’s Forrest’s, trees, lakes, rivers and seas. The animals and livestock which provide our food and plants.

We live in a beautiful planet and it’s our obligation each and everyone of us to heed today’s message for not only our sake and our children’s but to make this world a stable clean environment, that is no longer being polluted by our current needs.

It is a huge challenge but one we are all responsible for and like plastic we are clogging the arteries of this planet for human need and consumption something which goes back many years.

Yet it can be reversed, we have the knowledge, the power and the humanity to do so and if we really can do it – the results might just surprise us as we are all connected…..

Writing

Writing

Actually one of the best things you can do to keep your mind active!!! It don’t matter if it’s good or bad whether you have dyslexia or any other problem that might hinder you ie spelling, grammar! It is still a worthwhile exercise.

Especially to write something from the imagination and bring it to life pen to paper or fingers to keyboard!!! It is an expressive art that we all have the right to its magical, time consuming, diplomacy to keep going if writing a novel and getting through writers block.

It’s also a craft in the technology age that can’t be lost!!!! Plus look at how many successful authors and journalists there are. Its also for people who are not great talkers a great way of finding expression and reaching a far wider audience.

It gives children whole new worlds and to use there imagination and where everything is now instant, learning kids that though it may seem boring it broadens the mind and enhances in a way few things do.

Whether adult or child being able to write, to express feelings and share what is in our heart and soul in such a way. Is a huge blessing and necessary part of human life…..

When not to say anything

When not to say anything….

Blimey if you anything like me when you know the wise thing is just to let it be you somehow can’t let it go!!!

Mindfulness is sometimes easier said than done.

More often than not people don’t like pure honesty even if it is right and I guess I must fall into that category take things to heart all the time, think the world and everyone I know is out to get me….

Or as happens most often read something and take it totally the wrong way and make huge mountains out of what is only a blip!!!! And then tell someone exactly how feel.

Plus worse keep repeating history and make even more idiot of yourself than normal if that’s possible and over think!!!!

Plus it’s a crushing feeling when heart seems to over rule head and instead of just letting it pass emotions get in way and you do react to a situation.

Having done yoga and trying to find my own inner guru tending to over react to things which don’t involve me, wont matter in ten years time when it’s the here and now the present which really does matter.

– Not what could be or reliving a past which can’t be changed!!! Or reacting to something you don’t know the outcome off.

The later making over thinking, paranoid imagination and to much time on hands where everything you think possible could go wrong does. As it’s really own emotional black mail to trip up, sabotage self and end up on constant cycle of unable to get out a situation or be in constant state of lack.

This is not what anyone wants even though it’s a trail many end up in myself included whether over sensitive or whatever.

Stepping back and letting it go is actually far easier and lifts whole burden of what you think might happen.

Reading above I know I jump in more often than not drawing wrong conclusion and punishing self for nothing. I not sure why this is such a part of human nature to make our opinion heard or that our weaknesses become more apparent – the whole ego thing!

Maybe it’s why the rise of eastern guru magic and yoga and so forth is more prominent now than ever – learning to let go is not easy as ego will always in some form be there but it is a necessary if we have to change and grow and learn from our past….

Not sure if any above relevant to anyone else I do suffer from depression and coming into autumn/fall weather my mood has went way down and feeling stuck in a situation where whatever seem to do is only making it worse not better or over trying being to eager to please.

Maybe due to making one situation – so important I have totally let my emotions rule everything and ruin the opportunity there!! As said self sabotage is about as destructive as anything and being own worse enemy.

Ok I stop and hopefully there is something in above – that letting be and seeing what happens instead of pushing for what want and remaining silent even when you feel like otherwise is masterful!!! To simply not say anything instead!! Amen to that and yes it’s a fools end to react and one that those of wisdom and experience don’t need told!!!!

Over and out Jen xxx
