Do you want to take control of your life?

A danger for our own personality is when we allow other people to take over our mind and control ourselves.
Mind and body have to be in unison with each other and when there is an unbalance we should find our way by meditative arts. Kounovsky, Yoga, Mindfulness and meditation a.o. can help to get back in balance, having a healthy body as a covering of a healthy spirit.
A lot f people also forget that there is a Word Which can bring us back on the right path and make us stronger to cope with all the difficulties of life. That book of book is available in so many languages that everybody, wherever living in the world, can get to read that Guide to live in the best way we can.

Anita's Perspectives on Life.

What are boundaries and how to set them?

As discussed in my last article on” Gaslighting”, some people try to control other people around them. The main reason behind this kind of mentality is gaining power over others through their actions. If you are in this kind of situation, it becomes very important to gain control over your own life, so that no one can overpower you and your life.

What is the most crucial part of taking charge of your life?

You should have full control over your body and mind. Mind and body connection is the link between a person’s thoughts, attitudes and behaviors. Everyone knows now that emotions can affect our physical health and longevity.

You must have experienced that your body responds to stress and anxiety or depression. When you are stressed, you might develop high blood pressure or headache. While feeling depression or anxiety, you…

Happens to the Heart (Leonard Cohen)

I was always working steady
But I never called it art
I got my shit together
Meeting Christ and reading Marx
It failed, my little fire
But it spread the dying spark
Go tell the young messiah
What happens to the heart
There’s a mist of summer kisses
Where I tried to double-park
The rivalry was vicious
The women were in charge
It was nothing, it was business
But it left an ugly mark
I’ve come here to revisit
What happens to the heart
I was selling holy trinkets
I was dressing kind of sharp
Had a pussy in the kitchen
And a panther in the yard
In the prison of the gifted
I was friendly with the guards
So I never had to witness
What happens to the heart
I should have seen it coming
After all, I knew the chart
Just to look at her was trouble
It was trouble from the start
Sure, we played a stunning couple
But I never liked the part
It ain’t pretty, it ain’t subtle
What happens to the heart
Now the angel’s got a fiddle
The devil’s got a harp
Every soul is like a minnow
Every mind is like a shark
Me, I’ve broken every window
But the house, the house is dark
I care, but very little
What happens to the heart
Then I studied with this beggar
He was filthy, he was scarred
By the claws of many women
He had failed to disregard
No fable here, no lesson
No singing meadowlark
Just a filthy beggar guessing
What happens to the heart
I was always working steady
But I never called it art
It was just some old convention
Like the horse before the cart
I had no trouble betting
On the flood, against the ark
You see, I knew about the ending
What happens to the heart
I was handy with a rifle
My father’s .303
I fought for something final
Not the right to disagree

~ Leonard Cohen

Attempting to comprehend reality


Our mind, in an attempt to comprehend reality, draws upon our past experiences and integrates them with something new or different to create a new or better understanding. But because that understanding is built on our own unique experiences, it may well differ from that of others who have not shared the same experience, or the same prior experiences, upon which our understanding is based.

A Million Ways To Live: Al Muhyi (The One Who Gives Life)

When we start our life we do not have any specific dreams or aspirations; When we start seeing all those attracting things around us we want to get up from our four pats to stand up on two limbs and to come to conquer the world around us. We start having lots of dreams and lots of aspirations, but when we get older we encounter also lots of defeats and disillusions.

Somehow deep in our heart we may feel a certain call, a cry that there could be an Al Khaleeq (The Creator), but most people do not want to know about some One Who is Greater than they and has their life in His Hands. But without this Divine Creator man shall have to find that life is empty and time is restricted, coming to see that in this life we shall never get to that high point of total fulfilment.

When finding Allah the Exalted, or the God above all gods, we shall be able to grow and find peace in our heart, how much other people may try to destroy the good name of Allah and want to bring fear over the world, blaspheming Allah and besmearing the Muslim community.

The dreams that you have sketched in your duas, the visuals that you have created in your mind about how that “moment” would look like, the imaginary rehearsal sessions in your washroom where you prepare for the “feeling” lest you dont feel silly- we all have these dreams. Getting that degree or that job, that dream marriage, that dream family, driving your dream car or unpacking at your dream home; all of us have so many things we want, wish for, ask for.
The wishes and duas we voice out to Allah are like the statues made of clay. In our limited capacities, thats the closest we can be to the reality we want to have. So we need Al Muhyi to give life to those statue like dreams, by making them real in flesh and blood. So ask Al Muhyi to give life to your duas by manifesting them…

spontaneous outpourings of unpremeditated verse

What I see
is what I perceive
my eye collects everything
but my mind filters
all the sights
and reinforces what I know
so what I see is what I believe
It’s hard to change your vision
before you change your mind.

Look with your eyes. See with your heart!

Look with your eyes. See with your heart!

Apples.jpgYou are in the supermarket pushing a cart. You are in front of the shelves with apples that are neatly stored according to taste, kind and variety. It is fruit you need for your health and you buy it, whether the price is good or not. You look at the quality label and then put a pack of six in your cart and go to the till.

It is not because you look that you see.
Your biological eye sees shapes and different colours. But do we actually ‘see’ what we are ‘looking’ at?
‘To see’ is only possible by standing still in a special way, by consciously looking at  and by being present with mindfulness. To see is always the result of looking with our inner eye, because reality has a tactile outer side but also an invisible inner side.

What if you would pick your apple yourself in the orchard ?
When choosing the apple that you pick yourself, you invariably begin to smile because of what you see, feel and smell. Your eyes admire the shapes and colours ,while your hands handle the apple as a piece of live food. This apple , ‘your apple’ is not any more just merchandise, but one of the wonders of life that you want to cherish.

Very often we ‘look’ without ‘seeing’, because our heart is not in it.
Phil Bosmans once wrote :

There are so many wonders around us that are waiting to be discovered. When you look at someone you love, when you look at flowers and butterflies and birds because you find them beautiful, you always see so much more than only your eyes can see.Then you discover daily new miracles”.

You start to think more with your heart than with your mind.

Thought of the day: We want more, i want more, but why is that?

We have been so accustomed and so deformed that we enjoy our mind crying out for more over and over again.

In Scripture this situation is being called ‘Being of the world’ and is been given the advice not to be of this world. Forgetting all the pressure the media wants to put on you to buy this or that. Just letting pass all those who want to enjoy just for making them happy for a moment instead for searching that happiness which they can carry all day.

Let us look for the real necessities of life and the real happiness, which is not in material things but in the right feeling the right heart.

Less… is still enough

Less for more

Freedomwithingrasp

We want more, i want more but why is that? I just shut it off. It’s that simple. The brain tells the body what to do. If it stops it then nothing happens. Your filter makes life ever so dull and less amazing then what it could be. Filter out the wrong things not the right things that feel wrong. Know the difference and live out more. you don’t have to live more to know more. Living less gives you knowledge too but different. not bad but different.

Time Has A Way Of Healing

Human beings are often not patient enough and do not want to give enough time to heal their body and their soul.

In case we would be willing to use the ‘cover of time‘ and the ‘cover of love‘ and understanding we would not have to worry such a long time about arguments we had and words which crossed our paths. Instead of being annoyed such a long time about arguments we had or heavy discussions, we should use the time to think about it and use meditation-time to give us some answers to heal the psychological wounds.

Often it is by lack of love for the other that so many bridges stay blown up and roads do not get repaired. To forgive is for many so difficult that they even can not cope with the thought of it. They should know it is a sort of weakness when you are not able to forgive and not able to swoop the sponge over the arguments you had.

Let us go for the better. We do not have to forget, but we should prefer to leave it as a thing in the past which we would preferred not to have happened. so why to stand still so long by it? Continue your way and reach out to the other in loving-kindness. Show the other you are strong enough to stand up again and to continue your way with him to better pastures.

With our mind we can do much more than we think. Everything is in the mind. and we should know that we do have received our minds to get to know the wonders of the world and to come to a good relationship with everything of the creation. For being able to come to a good relationship we do have to open our minds to the positive things of this life and should mend as we may need help from friends or well intentioned professionals.
“Let love and healing conquer for all of humanity”

And let us not forget:

He who cannot forgive breaks the bridge over which he himself must pass

  • Living Mindfully for a Healthy Body, Mind, and Heart (goodtherapy.org)
    If this were your last day on earth, how would you spend it? Would you spend it inside an office or with your loved ones? While this may seem like a drastic question, I believe it helps us put things in perspective. Instead of living from a reactive stance where we’re putting out fires, obsessing over the future, or striving to do more, we pause and shift into the present moment. As we connect to body, mind, and heart, we open to our moment-to-moment experience in a nonjudgmental manner. This pausing to intentionally connect with the present moment can be challenging, but it’s an important step toward restoring balance between body, mind, and emotions.
  • Anti-Confusion (avirtuousmetalk.wordpress.com)
    My natural eye can only see what surrounds me. My spiritual eye when focused on God, can see that He is moving on my behalf within every aspect of my life. I no longer choose to be a mute witness or deaf believer. I want to make an alarming and resounding sound in the troposphere, stratosphere, mesosphere, and thermosphere that signifies my life’s devotion as a living sacrifice to God.
  • Forgiveness (kadalyn.wordpress.com)
    Being able to forgive those who have wronged you is a mark of spiritual strength and confidence. When you forgive, you grow, your heart begins to heal, your back straightens up, your eyes clear so you can see the road ahead.
  • Forgiveness vs. Restoration of Trust by Rick Warren (christianmotivations.weebly.com)
    Forgiveness does not mean the instant restoration of trust. Forgiveness is instant. Trust must be rebuilt over time. Forgiveness is based on grace. Trust is built on works. You earn trust. You don’t earn forgiveness.
    +
    Forgiving a person does not mean you have to trust them. It means they have to earn the trust.
    +
    Restoration of a relationship takes far more than forgiveness. It takes repentance. It takes restitution and a rebuilding of trust. And it often takes a much longer time.
  • Daily Inspiration – Forgiveness is a Wonderful thing. (transformyourlife4ever.wordpress.com)
    Release all your anger, fear and resentment and move forward with a positive frame of mind. Let go of the past as it is impossible to change it, you can only learn from it. When you forgive you release the ties that bind you to hurt, pain, mistakes, heartache and anything that is negative and destructive in your life. When you forgive yourself and others you create a space that allows love and hope to exist.
  • Jesus Heals Broken Hearts (frommyheart2u.wordpress.com)
    The first step to healing is forgiveness. An emotional wound cannot heal without forgiveness. Unforgiveness and bitterness are like an infection;without removing them you will not recover.
  • Forgiveness: An Act of Self Love (consciouslifenews.com)
    When someone that matters to us is hurtful we will naturally feel painful emotions such as anger and sadness. We may find ourselves dwelling on the injustice of the situation and holding grudges. Gradually these negative feelings overshadow the positive feelings in our lives, leaving us filled with resentment. That eventually leads to spiritual paralysis and detrimental physical destruction.
    +
    Forgiveness is a promise we make to ourselves to change our life. It is about releasing ourselves from the grip that hinders our well-being—the negative hold we have essentially allowed the other person to have over us.
  • Is Forgiveness The Key To Happiness? (lifechris.wordpress.com)
    In the pursuit of true happiness, there are many stumbling blocks that the Universe likes to throw our way. If happiness is a choice, should we also choose to forgive those who have hurt and upset us in aid to achieve it?
  • Forgiveness (bishopcraig.com)
    There’s nothing about forgiveness that implies being a doormat or placing yourself or anyone else in danger. In fact, if that’s a jimmy-swaggart-caughtpossibility then forgiveness is inappropriate and premature.

Thursday Phrase Night for Palace Poets

Let Us All Heal
.
In nature time has a way of healing all wounds,
Unless the wound is fatal or the only cure for certain diseases
Is death, a sad state of affairs
The white blood cells in our bodies do their job  and rightfully so
Compassion for our fellow person should rule our day and
We should really care
.
Anger consumes many a soul who
Cannot find it in their hearts to forgive
The pain, the madness eating them inside making
Them bitter, no way to live

Of course there are some transgressions that
May be unforgivable but
We must seek out ways to cope
The hardest thing sometimes is searching one’s own soul
A worthy goal  turning hate into constructive hope

The link between physical and spiritual should
Never be forgotten or even discounted
Our bodies for the most part have a miraculous way

Being ‘broke’ a state of mind

“Being ‘broke’ is a state of mind. Not
a financial or spiritual condition
All wealth, happiness and abundance first
begins with the power of your mind.

The sooner you master your mind, the greater
your chances in attracting happiness, living
your highest purpose and manifest your dreams!”

    In order to manifest what you desire, you must align your body, mind, heart, Soul and will. If any of these aspects of yourself is not in alignment with your conscious desire, then you may experience resistance, self-sabotage, or counter-productive results. You can manifest anything you choose on the physical, mental, emotional or spiritual/etheric planes – the key is that you must believe that it is possible and you must believe that it is possible for you.Whatever you choose to manifest, it is also important to work toward your desired outcome on all levels by taking physical, mental, emotional and spiritual steps that lead to that reality.

    Vibrating frequencies build a virtual construct that makes you think you are in a physical world, but you are not. You are in a holographic universe which is an illusion so well designed, that only the highest beings of light can see it for what it is. This is your destiny, but now you will continue to play this game called Earth at a level never played before. You are still playing with three dimensional rules in a fifth dimensional world, but you’re quickly learning how to make the transition by shifting energy.
  • Heather Matthew’s Manifestation Miracle Guide Reveals Secrets That Will Draw Money, Happiness & Success to One’s Life Automatically (sbwire.com)
    People who are currently depressed and have no motivation about tomorrow will find the law of attraction success stories so motivated and exciting that they will hardly sleep waiting for the new day to come and reveal new secrets and new success to them too.In order to start the process of change, people should firstly realize where they are now and how they feel about their current life? Are they satisfied with what they have or long for much more? Those who have dreams are much more prone to reach them and improve their current situation than those who do not have such.

    So desire is the first step that can change people’s spiritual world that will impact their physical world. The next step is to start thinking positively, as people usually bring about what they think about. Believing in the possibility and in the own strengths is a must in the secret law of attraction. The expected miracles can really happen and those that are never expected will never come true.

  • Living the Law of Attraction (julietour.wordpress.com)
    Whatever your focus is on becomes manifested into material form. Belief makes the unbelievable tangible. Want to see an angel? After continuously focusing on my belief in a spiritual experience, I finally experienced many amazing things. Worried about a car being repossessed? Worries can block all abundance to help pay for that car, so the universe helped there as well…. Like earning thousands the day after it’s repossession. A little too ironic, right? Focused on abundance and a huge bank account? I’ve been there too and used my riches to share with my family, friends, and causes I cared about. Worried about a bad grade? The focus will make you late or miss class due to unforeseen circumstances no matter how hard you studied.

    It doesn’t matter what aspect of life you connect these feelings with, these feelings of lack and always seeking more, seems to sneak its way into every crevasse within our lives.
