Everything Is Waiting For You

by David Whyte     (And Derek Mahon)

“Your great mistake is to act the drama
as if you were alone.

As if life were a progressive and cunning crime with no witness to the tiny hidden
transgressions.

To feel abandoned is to deny
the intimacy of your surroundings.

Surely, even you, at times, have felt the grand array;
the swelling presence, and the chorus, crowding
out your solo voice.

You must note
the way the soap dish enables you,
or the window latch grants you freedom.

Alertness is the hidden discipline of familiarity.
The stairs are your mentor of things
to come, the doors have always been there
to frighten you and invite you,
and the tiny speaker in the phone
is your dream-ladder to divinity.

Put down the weight of your aloneness and ease into the
conversation.

The kettle is singing
even as it pours you a drink, the cooking pots
have left their arrogant aloofness and
seen the good in you at last.

All the birds
and creatures of the world are unutterably
themselves.

Everything is waiting for you.”

Why We Should Pay Attention – Sadhguru Video

“We’re mistaking information for intelligence. When you are heaping yourself with too much information, now attention is a serious problem.  It is intelligence that allows you navigate through a particular situation in a unique way, not the way that somebody else is doing.  Once you have no attention, or ability to hold your attention, you have lost your ability to access your intelligence also.  You just churn out the information from memory.

When you function at your full potential, you will do better.  Information is for boastfulness.  The arrogance of information…”

Be Joyfully Grateful

“Gratitude is the key that opens the abundance
that heaven wants to shower us with
The more gratitude that we have for all blessings and tribulations
the more abundance coming our way
And when you share that abundance with others
even more blessings come our way
Our creator wants to bless us with whatever our hearts desire when all we do is for helping and serving others
So be joyfully grateful for all in your life, and see blessings coming!”  ❤

There Must Be Balance In All Things And At All Times

“Life is a constant giving and receiving, a constant inhaling and exhaling of the Breath of Life. You could not spend your entire time inhaling without exhaling any more than you could spend your time giving without receiving.
When life ceases to be a two-way thing it dries up and dies away. Every soul has to learn to live a life, and group living brings this out very clearly. No soul can live entirely for themselves – they have to learn to live for others and with others. There has to be a constant giving and receiving on all levels for perfect peace and harmony to be maintained.
As each one finds their rightful place and pulls their weight, so does everything get done… It would no more do for a soul to sit in meditation all day, not lifting a finger to help with the practical side of group living, than to go on working without the balance of the deep inner life. There must be balance in all things and at all times.

 

One of the co-founders of the Findhorn Community, Eileen Caddy, received guidance from the ‘still, small voice within’ and shared it with the community for more than 40 years until she passed away in 2006. We continue this tradition as her guidance is as relevant today as it was when she received it.” www.findhorn.org
