Remember your GRACES!

Today’s message is this:

When interacting with those who are either totally unaware of what is going on around them, or choosing to close their minds, ears and eyes to it because they do not want to “go there”, there are a few ways of ensuring that they treat you well and not abusively, disrespectfully or offhandedly.

First, use Grace, Respect, Acknowledgment, Clarity, Equality and Sincerity.
Use these for all of your interactions.
Secondly, Breathe, breathe, BREATHE!!
Third, Remain centered and calm.
Fourth, Look every one you speak to in the eye with Love, kindness and understanding. (They are where they are meant to be, respect that.)
Fifth, Send out Love to all around, yes all, whomever they are, whatever they have done or have not done that you consider wrong or bad. In time, they will be “called out”…

Eckhart Tolle

You just might notice things you didn’t before if you take a moment and BREATHE and look around at the beauty of the world.  These tiny flowers were growing in rocks but seemed to be determined to make it this season.  Enjoy your day!

“When you wash your hands, when you make a cup of coffee, when you’re waiting for the elevator – instead of indulging in thinking, these are all opportunities for being there as a still, alert presence.”

I am taking a Mind Body class from Kaiser, my health care provider.  It is an eight week class that meets once a week, and explores our mind-body connection.  We learn, we share, and we discover simple practices that build on each other that can reduce our stress and improve the quality of our lives.  That sounds simple, and to some degree it is.  But I can tell you that these simple practices, done over time, can effect changes both subtle and deep.  Each week we are  given “homework,” something specific to do mindfully over the course of the next week.  In the third session we were given the assignment of noticing something during the week that gave us joy and then taking a few extra seconds — just a few – and more fully noticing that joy.  Taking it in.  Standing there and just absorbing how beautiful, or delightful…
