Be aware of your breathing

Be aware of your breathing as often as you are able, whenever you remember. Being aware of your breathing takes attention away from thinking and creates space. It is one way of generating consciousness. Notice the sensation of the breath. Feel the air moving in and out of your body. Notice how the chest and abdomen expand and contract slightly with the in and out-breath. Once conscious breath is enough to make some space where before there was the interrupted succession of one thought after another. One conscious breath taken many times a day, is an excellent way of bringing space into your life.

Being aware of your breath forces you into the present moment-the key to all inner transformation. Whenever you are conscious of the breath, you are absolutely present. Conscious breathing stops your mind. If you look closely, you will find that coming fully into the present moment and ceasing thinking without loss for consciousness- are actually one and the same: the arising of space consciousness.

Memory is not allowing mental impressions to escape, a few years ago I read Eckhart Tolle so it seems that his words made quite an impression.

Love,

“To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others.You need to accept yourself.” Thich Nhat Hanh

Beautiful means just being and loving you!

There’s only one of each of us, and this is our chance to really live, so why waste our hard-earned energy trying to gain acceptance from everyone around us and trying to make ourselves look perfect to feel loved? When you start down that road to self acceptance—that road to truly loving who you are, flaws and all—it’s then that you can truly open yourself up to being beautiful, for you and no one else.

Accept your feelings, experience them, feel them, and grow!

Acceptance and empathetic understanding are ‘changing lives’ attitudes. What we usually experience is that we accept or get accepted under some sort of circumstance. We need to act in some way to be loved or accepted in order to be loved or accepted by important people in our lives — or even more by ourselves. Sometimes we have a philosophy of being that matches with the attitudes that are accepted. We don’t ‘shoot’ any feelings. We need to accept every feeling, whether it is positive or negative. There is no wrong feeling. What we feel is a response, which is currently the most appropriate. Usually we don’t know in advance what this feeling could bring to us, but we do know that if we ‘lock’ the feeling in the wardrobe that doesn’t mean that this stops existing.

Seeking outside ourselves is like waiting for sunshine in a cave facing north.

We look for happiness outside ourselves when it is basically an inner state being. It is naive to imagine that external conditions alone can ensure happiness, and yet we do so little to improve the inner condition that determines the very quality of our lives. It takes a lot of daring to look within. Look within, within is the fountain of all good

Deep & true changes come from inside out,not the other way around.

We can try different kinds of techniques to transform ourselves, but unless we address the underlying structure, we are just moving the pieces around. We haven’t made any lasting changes just by saying affirmations, or going on a diet, or superficially altering our habits. We’ve addressed the symptoms without going to the root.

Affirmations change the thoughts but not the thinker. Diets change the eating patterns but not the eater. Willpower holds the negative actions in check for a little while but does not ultimately change the doer. If you only change what you do, all you get are temporary alterations to your actions. Shift your inner viewpoint, though, and your world tranforms.

When you change your focus from limitations to boundless possibilities, from doubt and fear to love and confidence, you open your world in entirely new ways. You stop worrying about fixing what’s wrong with you and start living from all that’s right withing you.

Journey into power, Baron Baptiste.
