Be Strong in Your Focus.
Message from Master Padmasambhava.
I am here today to talk about how we often start down a spiritual path with a strong sense of urgency - we discover practices like meditation and conscious breathing throughout the day and forgiving and positive affirmations.
And then we start to become distracted and within one month we have stopped all of these practices.
This is the human condition.
We become distracted and move on to other things in our hectic lives.
However, in order to advance spiritually, we all need to develop consistent habits and practices that support our spiritual path.
How to make this happen?
Allow me to suggest a few tips.
Tip one is to consider having a partner in this endeavor.
If you have decided to start meditating, then get a partner that is also starting meditation.
You don't have to meditate together, just call each other each day to talk about meditation and to remind each other to do the meditation.
Having a buddy will help to stay focused.
Tip two is to start only one new practice at a time. For example, start to meditate, master meditation and then add another new practice.
How do you master a practice?
When you perform the practice nearly every day without fail then you have mastered the practice.
Tip three is to make room for your new practice by dropping an old practice.
For example, meditation might be a 30 minute activity in the evening for you.
You may have a tendancy to surf the net or social media for an hour in the evening.
Give up 30 minutes of that so that you have time now for meditation.
I hope that these three simple tips help you on your spiritual path.
Focus On Beauty and Goodness.
Have you ever met the person that is the glass half empty?
When you have conversation with the half empty person you receive information about what is all wrong in the world.
This person will tell you that the world is headed for calamity, that the world is filled with badness, that the world is filled with evils that are eating us alive!
I say to you that this world has much more Beauty and Goodness than any other thing. This world has much more going for it and humanity has much more to celebrate than these doomsayers will admit.
So why do these merchants of doom and gloom wish to peddle such bleak views and stories. What could this benefit them?
These people are hateful and fearful on the inside and so within as so without. Their observations reflect their inner self.
The great news here is that the opposite is also true - as without so within. What this means is if you start to focus ONLY upon what is good and uplifting in the world, your interior changes as well. And as you internally focus only upon what is Good and Just and Beautiful and Divine then you transform the outside world. This becomes a virtuous circle that sustains itself with help from the energies of the universe and our Creator.
The practical advise for you today is to focus ONLY on what is good and beautiful in your world as a means toward transforming your inner self and feelings and thoughts.
Message from Mary Magdalene
Focus on what you want; Not what you don't want!
The news on television can be such a distraction. If one watches an entire day of television news one is treated with the same tragedy over and over again. We leave traumatized and the emotional part of us comes to believe that the world is a dangerous place.
Many times the tragedy filling the screen is the product of a handful of people. Out of 7 billion people on the planet the television news mongers wish to focus on a handful of lost souls who do not know better.
What of the 7 Billion who are performing large and small miracles every moment of every day throughout all corners of the world?
Are they not worthy of television news coverage?
How about Internet news. Isn't that a better alternative?
I say that internet news has both. Much of what is called alternative news is just as bleak as the television news. It certainly has more complaining!
I say shut off the news that is designed to instill fear and focus on what you do want. Do you want a world that has people helping people? Then focus your time, energy and talent on people helping people. That is what you will experience.
If you focus on a world of people harming people, then that is the world that you will experience.
We are not here to change the world. We are here to change ourselves. That, in turn, changes the world.
If you wish to be one of those people that wishes to live in a world of love and harmony then focus on love and harmony and you will attract others who also focus on love and harmony and whatever is not love and harmony in your life will drop away over time.
Let go of the focus on what you don't want. Let go of the people and places and things that you don't want. Instead focus on the people, places and things that you do want to have around you and then that will happen to you. Many times this takes courage. If you don't feel you have the strength to do this then ask our Creator for help and help shall appear from the most unlikely places.
This is our Creator's promise to you!
