Abundance and Mindfulness

This morning we were listening to a great guided meditation by Eckhart Tolle (above). At the end Tolle says “the perfect state is the state of acceptance”. This is brilliant. How often do we try to push away states of mind that are painful. And grasp states that are pleasurable. How about if we just peacefully accept the actual one we have? With all it’s imperfections. And just be. Calmly. Peacefully. Be in the state we are at the present moment. That’s all. Just the state in the present moment.

“Some changes look negative on the surface but you will soon realize that space is being created in your life for something new to emerge.”
~ Eckhart Tolle

“The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but your thoughts about it.”
~ Eckhart Tolle

“Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance.”

Abundance

Sun in heaven.

Abundance in great measure.

Supreme success

In the midst of impermanence.

Midday Sun

The midday sun in the summer is the hottest and brightest of all. It symbolizes a zenith, a fulfillment, a period of great brightness. In the affairs of people, it stands for the combining of strength and clarity, which yields brilliance. When the times are in accord, abundance cannot be opposed.

~ Deng Ming-Dao

Be Lost in the Call

Lord, said David, since you do not need us,
why did you create these two worlds?

Reality replied: O prisoner of time,
I was a secret treasure of kindness and generosity,
and I wished this treasure to be known,
so I created a mirror: its shining face, the heart;
its darkened back, the world;
The back would please you if you’ve never seen the face.

Has anyone ever produced a mirror out of mud and straw?
Yet clean away the mud and straw,
and a mirror might be revealed.

Until the juice ferments a while in the cask,
it isn’t wine. If you wish your heart to be bright,
you must do a little work.

My King addressed the soul of my flesh:
You return just as you left.
Where are the traces of my gifts?

We know that alchemy transforms copper into gold.
This Sun doesn’t want a crown or robe from God’s grace.
He is a hat to a hundred bald men,
a covering for ten who were naked.

Jesus sat humbly on the back of an ass, my child!
How could a zephyr ride an ass?
Spirit, find your way, in seeking lowness like a stream.
Reason, tread the path of selflessness into eternity.

Remember God so much that you are forgotten.
Let the caller and the called disappear;
be lost in the Call.

~ Rumi
