Sky

Do you ever look at the sky – what do you think then? What means the sky to you? Does the sky inspire you or are you afraid of its greatness?

Giving thanks, giving gifts No.5: unlimited sky.

What if the sky is you? What kind of feelings would you get? And what kind of weather would cross under you? Drama clouds soak us into their stories very quickly, they scare us, make us worried. We should understand more often that we are not the weather – we are unlimited, perfect 'sky'. Weather comes and goes. It doesn't stay long. But the sky stays the same, untouched, as blue as it was.

I wish that you would be aware of your boundlessness and untouchability of your essence. Let the weather and its drama not confuse your awareness of who you really are.

With words

Sometimes I get the feeling that we use words just like that, from wherever they come from. Whatever comes out of our mouth is good enough. No saying sorry, no thinking about the words and their effects on other people; whatever we say, the listener has to accept it. Lately I find that this method became a chronical disease. 

Giving thanks, giving gifts No.4: With words

Let's dedicate our time to words. Think, when we will say something and what. Words are energy. It should be positive, supportive, kind. Let the energy spread with joy, care and gentleness.

Find the words in books that inspire you and learn new words. Speak like you would read love poetry, play with the dictionary, thesaurus. Let the words become a part of you, a part of your personality.

Words and the way they sound tell the others who you really are. Do you recognize yourself in your words? What do you want to tell to the World??

Let December be a month of practicing kind words, which will echo in other people's hearts forever!

Knock - knock

How often do you notice that you don't persist long enough to get what you've planned? I noticed for myself, that I often give up waaaaay before something might have happened.

Luckily I found these wise words that now, when I'm weak, remind me to not give up.

Giving thanks, giving gifts #3: Persistence

The speed with which we drive through the days, allows us not to wait in front of the door if the door doesn't open right away. We are already at the next door, and the next, and the next. Finally, we don't pick up the door we want to knock on anymore and whom we're going to visit; we just keep knocking on every door until one of them won't open fast enough for us.

Speed is tempting, but illusory. It offers moments of pleasure and excitement, when we race from door to door. There's no time for getting angry, sad and there's no time to sit down and wait in front of the door until the door open. For some, speedy is a way they want to live, because then they don't need to go deep into inner self or think about themselves.

Therefore, if we really want something (and we know that only if we know ourselves well enough and listen to inner self), then keep on knocking, knocking, persist! It will open... - if not the door, then a window for sure!

Wishing you lots of persistence!

Seeds

I don't know about you, but I get so focused on the harvest I want to reap, that I forget everything else.

#2 of Giving thanks, giving gifts: Seeds

Choose the soil, choose the healthy seeds, choose the weather, the moisture, the warmth. Focus on what and how will you plant, do everything what you need to do to make sure that something (what you want) will grow out of these seeds. Take care of them, love them, observe them. Water them when they need water, protect them from weeds and pests. Focus on your seeds...

I have to remind myself quite often to not get destructed by the thoughts of harvest of the day. I push away the time for the seeds... and then... if I'm not careful, they die from neglecting. Does it happen to you too? Do you have some wise words to share that keep you focused? 

So, today I'd like to wish you: enjoy growing seeds and focus less on the harvest! Have a wonderful month!

Giving thanks, giving gifts 2014

Yes, it is back this year as well - the time in December that is especially precious to me. Time, dedicated to saying thanks and giving gifts. Time, when I look back into the year 2014, from which I've got new knowledge, new discoveries, new questions and answers. I am thankful for these gifts, which can not compete with all the St.Nikolas's-Santa Clause's-Father Cold's-New Year's gorgeous gifts, which are (compared with them) just a dot on a letter i. These gifts are gifts for ever, they will stay with me forever, from the day I've received them.

As always I invite you to join in and add your thoughts, comments, opinions and ideas, so that we all gain from this time as much as we can. And you’re welcome to invite others too!

This year my ‘Giving thanks, giving gifts’ is going to be a bit different from the previous years (2013, 2011, 2010, 2009), but I hope, that it is still going to be interesting and inspiring to you… My posts are going to be dedicated to the wise words that some known and less known people have said, and which helped me when I was down. Yes, there are days, when we doubt, worry, feel sad, feel pain or feel desperate… - and then, a word can help, or a hug, smile, music… What usually helps me are the words and actions that cross my path at the right time, at the right place. I’ll share some of these words with you this year.

#1: Everything is connected:

we all want similar things, we all need somebody or something that we can survive, everything is connected to everything else. Isn’t it great that someone grows food for me while I am busy with other things? Isn’t it great that I can talk to someone when I need advice? Garbage men, workers who produced my car, a dentist, neighbor’s cat, flowers and bees from which we get sweet honey... The list is endless. Everyone that we meet, has to be there because of us, everything that we go through, has to be as it is, so that the string of connection doesn’t break. It is not always to accept this, but I’m learning to see. I wish the same to you, because I believe it is easier to live our lives when we understand this, isn’t it so? What do you think?

And yes, we all want to be happy, every year, every December, no matter where we live. Isn’t it true? When you will be thinking about this, let me inspire you with this gorgeous simple video, which will remind you that we are all one…
