Actors on a Stage

August 9th, 2009

“Do not take life’s experiences too seriously.  Above all, do not let them hurt you, for in reality they are nothing but dream experiences…  If circumstances are bad and you have to bear them, do not make them a part of yourself.  Play your part in life, but never forget that it is only a role.”

Paramahansa Yogananda

 Paramahansa Yogananda is one of my all time favorite teachers in life.  He truly has taught me to live life as if I am acting on a stage.  For this, I hold great gratitude to him.  Each day, life can feel very serious as though this moment and today are all that really matter.  But like most experiences in life, if you look back on a day that seemed to be your all time worst, today in retrospect it may feel far less significant.  Another thought that crosses my mind frequently is how important it is for me to step out of my life and to look at things from an aerial view, from a bigger picture.  Most times, the things that seem so important on the ground hold very little importance when I look at their overall relevance.

 So the lesson for me is to take things easy, to take things as they come.  I am committed to learning, to go with the flow and to allow my life to unfold as though I were an actor on the stage.

TELL YOUR HEART THAT THERE IS NOTHING TO FEAR

July 15th, 2009

…”tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than suffering itself.  No heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams because every second of the search is a second encounter with God and eternity.

 

,,,follow the path laid out.  The path to destiny and to happiness.  Most people see the world as a threatening place, and because they do the world turns out indeed to be a threatening place.”

 

Paulo Koelho

Excerpts from The Alchemist

 

One of our greatest challenges in today’s economic climate is to overcome our fears.  Masters of great spiritual teachings and others reiterate the message that fear is our greatest enemy.  Our fears stop us from having a full life and reaching our dreams.  Now is the time to replace fear with trust and to move from immobility to great mobility.  We do this through listening to and following our inner knowing and thereby moving in the direction of our dreams.  As we take steps in this direction we learn to trust ourselves, gain greater confidence and bring to us all that is needed to succeed. 

 

Be clear about what your dreams are and as you move in their direction.  You will gain all the support you need to bring them to fruition.
