My intention is to consider compassionate ways to bring joy and healing into our lives by bringing balance and beneficial practices into place for the benefit of all. We all need our Inner Warrior and Ancient Wisdom to navagate the complexities of life in this modern world.
Through our words, we create our world. The experience we are presently having was brought into being by our thoughts, words, and deeds. We can choose to create positive healing experiences where we benefit both ourselves and others. Or we can create destructive experiences, which bring suffering to all involved. In Proverbs 13:3 it says, “He who guards his mouth preserves his life, but he who opens wide his lips shall have destruction.” Again in Proverbs 16:24 it says ” Pleasant words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the bones.”
His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama says in one of his beautiful quotes “Everyday, think as you wake up, today I am fortunate to be alive, I have a precious human life, I am not going to waste it. I am going to use all my energies to develop myself, to expand my heart out to others; to achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings. I am going to have kind thoughts towards others, I am not going to get angry or think badly about others. I am going to benefit others as much as I can.”
To benefit others as much as I can. This is the dream of my life as well. If each of us were to apply these healing words to our lives, what a difference we might make. For the words we say either build ourselves and those listening up, or they tear us apart, and bring destruction and suffering.
May I invite each of you to begin this new day by choosing to use your words for the healing and uplifting of both yourself, and all others with whom you interact. You have the potential to bring life and healing to any situation.
To begin we must fill our hearts and minds with healing thoughts, and words to use as needed in our daily lives. Here are some suggestions to begin with. You may seek more from any source you find healing and inspiring within your own faith.
“I Seek to understand, to forgive, to accept, to love unconditionally in every situation.” (Kerrie UniFaith)
“I am Free from Fear, for it is Love that is guiding me.” (Kerrie UniFaith)
“The Universe guides me in all that I do.” (Affirm Your Life blogspot.com)
“I am a Magnet for all the good that life has to offer.” (Affirm Your Life)
“A loving person lives in a loving world. A hostile person lives in a hostile world. Everyone you meet is your mirror.” (Positive Thinking Quotes)
“Positive and Negative are Directions. Which Direction Do You choose?” (Positive Thinking Quotes)
“A good person produces good things from the treasury of a good heart, and an evil person produces evil things from the treasury of an evil heart.” (Matthew12:35)
“You are like a candle. Imagine you are sending light out all around you. All your words, thoughts and actions are going in many directions. If you say something kind, your kind words go in many directions, and you yourself go with them. We are …transforming and continuing in a different form at every moment.” Thich Nhat Hanh
In closing I would like to share with you this beautiful prayer from Abby Willowroot (I found this at spiralgoddess.com)
Make Me Strong in Spirit
“Make me strong in Spirit
Courageous in action
Gentle of heart
Let me act in wisdom
Conquer my fear and doubt
Discover my hidden gifts
Meet others with compassion
Be a source of healing energies
And face each day with hope and joy.”
Abby Willowroot (c) 1998
To each of you I wish a beautiful new day, filled with healing words and healing energy for yourself and all with whom you interact. May the One who loves us all from every faith and race; deeply Bless you in your walk with the Divine. Namaste.
