…EVEN IF YOU ARE NOT JEWISH!  🙂

SHANA TOVA HAPPY NEW YEAR

As always, my prayers are with all of you and as the Jewish New Year approaches, this is a good time to contemplate (and you don’t have to be Jewish to use the opportunity) where you were last year at this time, where you are today, how you feel about your “today” and how much of what you dreamed of last year you have succeeded in manifesting into reality !!

I leave you with my blessings for another wonderful year, and of course with the following food for thought:

Cultivating Faith is no different than cultivating a garden. The more time you spend on it,the more beautifully it will grow and bring you joy. You must weed it continually, and the weeds in the garden of Faith are fear and doubt. The water and fertilizer which allow it grow are prayer, meditation and…more than anything else, gratitude.

…a few quiet moments to restore balance and harmony in these difficult times
wpid-20140728_193042-1.jpg

Those of you who follow me on Facebook may have read my post from the beginning of the week where I wrote “Feeling Hopeful and Optimistic”.  It actually seemed to me that things were heading to an end and sanity would be restored.

It seemed like the idea of “quiet being answered by quiet” would work, and then we would just have to finish the work of finding and destroying as many of the tunnels as possible That at last the deaths and casualties of innocent civilians and the destruction would cease on both sides. And hopefully while working on the tunnels, as few soldiers as possible would be injured or killed…was I really so naive? or just being honestly, innocently and truly optimistic?

After all, we’ve destroyed lots of rockets, and how many could they have left anyway? And once they could no longer throw death and destruction at us, we, of course, would no longer have reason for “disproportional” response. And then, just the tunnels, just the tunnels, just the tunnels to deal with.

So why does it continue and continue and continue? Could I really be so naive and innocent and ridiculously “hopeful and optimistic”?

Is there truly no end in sight to this continued conflict? These continued wars?

Will we eternally have to fight this enemy that so desperately wants to be rid of as that it would sacrifice its own children relentlessly and savagely to that cause? And will our own children who are now soldiers continue to die defending us? Will the children living through all this grow up  in a world of continued war and hatred?

How do we end this? How do we return to harmony, sanity, peace, permanently? And not just for a few precious moments every now and then during respites in the fighting and killing, or those precious few moments out in Nature?

Are WE doing something wrong? Should we be using more force? Less force? Or is it just a loose-loose situation? Could it really be that there IS no peaceful solution? I refuse to imagine that that is so. But if, as they say, they truly “live” to see the end of Israel, and Jews everywhere, then the battle to survive is eternal for us?

It is now 5 AM. My mind is in a whirl, despairing thoughts going round and round, thoughts I don’t want to be thinking, but have no choice…I will continue to strive to maintain my own focus on Faith, Freedom from Fear, Peace, Sanity, Love, Optimism, Harmony

…but how long can I continue to feel “hopeful and optimistic” without feeling “foolish”?

…and as they say in Facebook statuses:  “feeling annoyed, confused, desperate, frustrated, angry, pained, pissed, threatened, heartbroken, discouraged, perplexed.”

Jane's Mindfulness Journal

Release, Recoup, and Reorganize

cartoon flowersMay I be blessed with the Faith, Freedom from Fear and Patience to truly make the most of this beautiful resting phase.

….a place to rest, wind down and relax following a period of extreme turmoil, particularly in the areas of financial security and relationships. This place can be of great blessing if we can muster the patience to appreciate the blessings of this place joyfully and gratefully and of course with great Faith in the wisdom and compassion of God and the Universe.

let go and let god

It is imperative that I take proper care of myself during this transition in all ways…spiritually, physically, mentally and emotionally, without becoming anxious or fearful.

I have no idea where the path is heading or even if I will continue along the same path I am now on.  Perhaps big upheavals are in store, or perhaps little changes which will slowly lead…

…or…How to Stay Focused while Being Mindful Along the Way

Beauty Along the Way

Beauty Along the Way

It is good to have focus in life, to have goals and desires, to make plans and do what needs to be done to move things forward.  That is the only way God and the Universe can do their part to make things happen.

But sometimes, if we focus ONLY on our goals, we miss the opportunity to appreciate the most beautiful blessings sent us daily, things which are around us everywhere, right under our nose, just waiting to be noticed.

Just to give you two examples

Today, I went to the beach with my daughter and granddaughter, to enjoy a sunny day out of doors and just relax.

Stay Focused but Be Mindful

Stay Focused but Be Mindful

When we arrived, we could not park in the usual parking lot close to the entrance, and had to walk some distance to get down to the beach.  We could have complained about this, letting it spoil the fun of going to the beach, but instead, we walked slowly and patiently along, enjoying the breeze, talking etc., and taking time to look around and SEE and BE.  And we were rewarded with the beautiful works of art you see in the photos of the flowers.

Our goal was to sit in the SUN and enjoy the beach but we found ourselves facing a sky full of clouds.  That certainly would seem to spoil our day if our only chance at enjoyment and pleasure was reaching our goal of sitting in the sun.  But instead, we appreciated the fact that we were not too hot and enjoyed the wonderful sky paintings the clouds made as they changed shape, color and direction.

Just a couple of shots to give you an example.

Sun Trying to Break Through the Clouds

So remember, goals are wonderful things, as long as they do not take away from our being mindful of all the blessings along the way to that goal.

And if , upon reaching what we thought would be our destination, we find things to be different than we imagined, or planned, we must flow with the new situation and enjoy it to the fullest as well.

All things happen as they were meant to, at the time they were meant to, and in the way they were meant to, always for our Higher Good.

Our job is to be grateful for all, and to experience all things with acceptance, joy, gratitude, Faith and Freedom from Fear.

What Happens After…

not getting what you wantThings didn’t work out because, well, greater things were in the works. It may be difficult at the moment, but, if you have Faith in anything, have Faith in the fact that God and the Universe have a beautiful way of straightening things out far better than we ever could. There is a bigger picture, an Overview (a term coined by Kryon in his channelings)  that we are unable to see at the moment. You may not see it today or tomorrow, but you will look back in a few years and be absolutely perplexed and awed by how every little thing added up and brought you somewhere wonderful– or where you always wanted to be. You will be grateful that things didn’t work out the way you once wanted them to▼

We are truly blessed if we take the time to experience things as they are in complete acceptance, joy, gratitude, Faith and Freedom from Fear

with much love light and JOY

My life is a twisted, turning road

…and I never know what awaits me around the next bend.  But I travel this road in complete Freedom from Fear for I know without a doubt, with complete Faith,that another wonderful, exciting and beautiful surprise is waiting for me once I get around the curve.

It may be a sharp and unexpected turn and I will have to navigate it carefully and slowly, but once I get past it a whole new and wonderful vista  appears before me once again.

I am truly blessed to have found this road of liberation and joy and love.  God is the engineer and Master builder of this road and he has graciously given me, and everyone, free access to it if we are just willing to

take the first step into the unknown with complete acceptance and Faith in what lies ahead.

with love light and JOY
