Just Say Yes

“We are constantly saying “no” to life. It is a habit we all start very young, when we go through the terrible twos. Yet most of us never grow out of this inner rebellion and resistance to the way things are. This release will help you begin the process of letting go of your “no” and uncovering your inner “yes.”

Tip: Allow yourself to start letting go of your inner no and start embracing your inner yes. The more you do this the happier you will be and the easier life will get. This does not mean being a pushover or allowing others to take advantage of you. It simply means that the habit of saying “no” first can block clear perception. By letting go of this habit, your own inner knowingness and power will begin to dissolve and be replaced by the feeling of yes.”

The above text is an excerpt from the Sedona Method Release-A-Day program. Please comment below on how this is supporting you and the benefits you are getting from Release-A-Day.

Release-A-Day is a daily audio release on topics ranging from having more money, better relationships and more radiant health and well-being to living love, beyond the limits of mind and discovering and living the Truth of that which you are.

 

From Change to Changelessness

“We live in a world that appears to be constantly changing. We get so caught up in all the external changes that we miss the changeless background on or in which all appears. We construct our world based on the change-full and wonder why we feel so out of control and dissatisfied. As we discover that changeless background we gain the strength to navigate the natural cycles and ups and downs of life.

Tip: Allow yourself to welcome what is as best you can, moment to moment, and allow things to change as they do opposed to always feeling like you need to direct the show. The more you let go of wanting to hold onto what is pleasurable and wanting to change what is painful or distasteful to you the more you will experience the joy an peace that is available to us each and every moment in life.

As you let go of wanting to direct the show it will start to surprise and delight you in ways you could not have possibly imagined based on past experience. And when things don’t go the way you want you will find that instead of getting stuck you handle challenges better. You will sail through life like a bird with the air beneath its wings.”

The Way to Happiness

“Non-attachment is the way to happiness. Disown all things from your heart while taking care of them. Consider them borrowed for use only. Use them with gratitude.”

–         Lester Levenson, Happiness Is Free and It’s Easier Than You Think, Book 3 of 5, Session 2

When we feel attached we are bound to the object of our attachment and it becomes the source of pain and unhappiness. The more you set yourself and everyone and everything free to simply be as it is the more you experience that joy that needs no reason to be.

All life is a gift from the One. Treat it as a gift as opposed to an entitlement and you will find your heart and life overflowing with joy and real abundance.

Enjoy,

Love,

A Glimpse Into Freedom

“Well, again, you do not give up your body. Your happiness gets more intense the more you move toward total freedom, until it reaches a point where you just can’t contain it anymore. Then you resolve it into a very beautiful peace that is never, ever again disturbed. And that peace is really far more delicious than the intense joy was. Then, when you choose to be active in the world, you’ll never, ever lose that background peace; you will feel it all the time. And you are free to do anything in the world: you can act angry or scared, be poor or rich. You can do anything you want, but you do not disappear.”

–         Lester Levenson, Happiness Is Free and It’s Easier Than You Think: Book 5 of 5, Session 5

This is just a very small glimpse of what we have to look forward to as we let go and surrender to that truth we are. The more you let go the more this becomes your living experience.

Also, many of us hold ourselves back from fully letting go into that which we are because we are afraid that we will disappear. The exact opposite is true. What you are not, never was, so you do see through that. That which you are simply shines through washing away all your beliefs and suffering leaving its wake profound peace and equanimity. Instead of identifying with the little body/mind you identify with all that is and you know that you are even more than that!

So allow yourself to open to the truth of what you are that is already looking through those eyes yet needs no eyes to see – That which gives life to “your” life yet is beyond any particular form including the one that bears “your” name.

Enjoy!

Freedom from Desire Brings Bliss

“Way back in the beginning, it started with a thought of lack. Then there was a desire to fulfill the lack. The desire caused more thought. The thought caused action. Since the action does not fulfill the desire, we increase the desire and action, keeping it going until we are apathetically spinning in an endless cycle, with satisfaction impossible. All our present thinking is initiated by something from the past. Our total feelings now are all from the thoughts and actions of the past. So, all thinking is now motivated by something that has already happened. Action and reaction go on and on that way, and we are caught. It’s almost impossible to have an original thought anymore, every thought being based on past thoughts.”
Lester Levenson, Happiness Is Free and It’s Easier Than You Think: Book 4 of 5, Session 6

The way to break this cycle is to let go of desires instead of only spending your time fulfilling them. Ultimately, they are not your desires anyway. When we blindly try to fulfill our desires we are responding to what may have been appropriate in the past as opposed to what we truly need or want now. Plus, whatever happiness that appears to come from satisfying our desires is at best fleeting and more often is only the preamble to greater suffering and an increase in the feeling of lack.

Every time we let go of wanting we quiet the mind and lesson our overall feeling of desiring. The less we desire the more we feel like we have and the more we are happy, content and at peace with whatever we have or do not have in this moment.

Does this mean that you should not fulfill your desires? Of course not, it simply means that you can discover by letting go that whatever you are looking for in fulfilling your desires is who or what you are already. You are already the happiness that you are seeking in every desire.

From time to time when you are wanting something that you appear to not have in this moment ask yourself:

  1. What is it I am actually wanting right now?
  2. Could I welcome that desire?
  3. Could I let go of wanting it as best I can?
  4. Could I allow myself to simply have or be that which I am looking to get from fulfilling that desire?

Ponder Lester’s words and experiment with this perspective and watch your inner experience change for the better.

Enjoy!

Losing a Pet

Thursday, February 6th, 2014 by Hale Dwoskin

The United States is a pet-loving country. In all, two-thirds of U.S. households own at least own pet (39 percent own at least one dog, and another 36 percent own at least one cat), according to the American Pet Products Manufacturers Association 2007-2008 survey. Pets are also increasingly looked at as members of the family.

Americans are not only spending more time and money on their pets (close to $41 billion in 2007), they’re regarding them as an integral part of the household. For instance, 40 percent of people who carry pictures of their spouse and children in their wallet also carry a picture of their pets.

The aspect of pet ownership that nobody likes to think about — the loss of a pet — is therefore an emotionally trying time full of all of the feelings that surround the death of a loved one: grief, sadness, loneliness, and other feelings of loss.
