To Love is the Why

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , on October 28, 2011 by Amy Kay Raymond

If you are wondering what you can do today to make a difference, think no more.

LOVE.

Why? To LOVE. That’s it.

LOVE is the sole fabulous reason why we’re here on this planet. Despite what the media spouts, or what the ego insists upon, it’s all really very simple. LOVE. It is the most powerful remedy for all that ails on this earth. It doesn’t cost a thing – except the ego, it’s pride – and it actually feeds not only the person receiving the LOVE, but the giver. It is a win-win situation when one submits to feeling good and allows the light to shine in. For then that light is reflected outward in ways that the human mind can not even comprehend or imagine. LOVE is vast, and it never stops giving.

When we choose to LOVE, separation is instantly banished. There is no more righteousness. There is no more greed or taking sides. When we LOVE, we are actually choosing to clean up our soul-full heart-print and eradicate all insinuations that the ego even exists. This is the magic pill that we’ve all been looking for. It’s not outside of ourselves. The answer does not lie in watching the news. That just feeds the ego. The answers are not going to come from electing the “best” politician. For we all have more power within us than any one person we could possibly elect. This radiant, all encompassing goodness is pulsating within us at any given time. We just have to choose it. Ego or LOVE?

Start pooling the LOVE together from within us all and that’s when little droplets of change become massive tidal waves of healing on this plane. Search for similarities in one another vs. differences. Yes! Actively search! Focus on the intended outcome, the well being of the planet and all of it’s inhabitants – and then let the collective consciousness take the pilot’s seat. You don’t have to “do” anything. Simply allow thoughts that feel good and let the power of LOVE wash over your heart daily.

Then go out into the world and spread it around.

Purposeful acts of Loving Big.

THIS is what is going to heal the world.

One heart at a time.

Namaste,

Feel Good Now – The Sky’s The Limit!

Expansion of Consciousness alert!

This just in from the front lines of Operation Transformation 2011

It’s no secret that many of our greatest spiritual teachers today are talking about our thoughts and how important it is to be aware of what we’re thinking. It’s said that if we don’t like our current reality, we need to change our thoughts. However, during these 3 years of vigilantly exercising this wisdom, a piece of the puzzle has been missing for me.  My mind is well aware of the truth that our thoughts create our feelings. But I haven’t been able to figure out how to change my thoughts if my mind is going a million miles an hour. Where to begin?

First of all, it is important to remember that we have behaved certain ways our entire lives and these behaviors have formed patterns. Then boom! All of a sudden we learn something reality shattering that totally contradicts everything we’ve ever known. We learn that we don’t have to believe our thoughts. WHAT A CONCEPT! A thought is just a thought until we believe it. Only then it becomes a belief. Our thoughts are just…thoughts. If you don’t like what you’re thinking, change your thought.

I wrestled this whole concept to the ground on most days and it became apparent to me that I was the classic flip flopper. Some days I was successful during certain moments and on other days, I felt completely overwhelmed and unequipped to create my own happiness. There’s nothing more frustrating than knowing the wisdom that can propel us out of hell, but not being able to apply it because of…well, we don’t freakin’ know why!

I worked this whole new ideology inside and out, up, backwards and down. The word “worked” should of been my first clue. There wasn’t a lot of play involved. I was very intent about getting this whole thing “right.” In other words…I was trying wayyyyy too hard. I knew something was off by observing my external reality: My Life. I could not make this ideology work consistently and my life reflected that.  Up, down. Up, down. I couldn’t get happy by simply changing my thoughts. At least, I couldn’t STAY happy. However, now I think by trial and trial, I have finally figured out the key. This is a moment-at-a-time Spiritual practice. Let me also say this: MASSIVE self discipline is required.

IT’S THE FEELINGS WE NEED TO PAY ATTENTION TO.

The thoughts create the feelings, clearly. But rather than trying to change all of our zillions of thoughts, do this: Pay attention to the FEELINGS that your thoughts are generating.

If you feel off the mark, which is what ‘sin’ means, literally…when you think or express a certain thought…change it.  STOP TALKING. Stop telling that horrible story. Stop that complaint that so badly wants to be heard. Stop watching the news. Stop talking about what you don’t want to happen. Stop comparing yourself to everyone else on the planet. Bite your tongue, pinch your wrist or do whatever you have to do.

Next order of business: latch onto another thought…a thought that makes you feel Good. It doesn’t matter what it is or how you get there. It can be recalling a joyful memory. It can be savoring the amazing smells wafting through the air at that exact moment. Try talking about what you DO want to manifest in your life and why! Or simply connect to your breath and be Grateful that you have the ability to breathe and breathe deep at that. Anything that gets you from point B – the icky feeling, back to point A – the feeling that just feels Good. No one has to know your process. It’s nobody’s business what gets you back to Heaven…only yours.

I am no spiritual master, obviously. Heyyyy, wait. Delete that thought. Saying that instantly made my energy go down. Believing that made me feel like I’ve got a longgggggg way to go. Take two: I am a Master in the making. Yes! There it is. Hey, why not? My vibration was instantly raised by thinking that thought.

What thought feels Good for YOU to think right now?

Are you willing to allow yourself to feel Good?

Come on…you deserve it.

Oops, there it is!
