Planget Quiet: Just for You

It is time to relax, take a seat and remove the head mire in plangent quiet.

So often each day is full of frenetic movement,  help given without reserve, and mindless habits such that taking a rest is uncommon.  Yet, after exiting the womb, it is common for the baby to close their eyes and rest. Be like a baby for now; rest. Restore your mind and body.  Take a moment, right now, and relax and rest. Quiet, please.

Plangent quiet could be an oxymoron, a truly extreme juxtaposition of words. But, it this post, it is meant to remind you to relax in the place where you are right now. Delaying is not optional unless it  would thrust you into danger; then use caution but when you are safe, relax in the quiet. Injury to yourself or others is not the intent, but what is is the directive to safely take a moment to rest.

The adjective plangent means resounding loudly. Adding the word quiet to plangent implies a deliberate, resounding intention to be still and bask in the self-need for quiet for a moment. Take a few minutes then to kindle the spirit of hope, charity, love and passion-let it move into your being and cast out activity, worry, sadness, doubt, fear.

Be still, be quiet and contemplate you.

“The sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being.” ~Carl G. Jung

Monday Miracle: Service

Serve from the heart

                               Serve from your heart

 

“Faith is the magnet which draws the confirmation of the Merciful One.  Service is the magnet which attracts the heavenly strength.” ~Abdu’l-Baha

Opening up your heart to serve others allows you to experience a greater feeling of gracious thoughtfulness.  When you decide to interact with others today through the mindfulness of service, you extend the heart-shake of good will.

Service to and mindfulness about others around you could be as simple as expressing your appreciation to other, sharing your talent for a project or purpose, extending well wishes that contribute to their happiness. Service may also mean that you give a monetary charitable gift or that you may want to accept a larger load of responsibility so that someone else can take a break.

The intrinsic beauty of service is that it helps you expand your feelings of love for others and it allows you to experience a connection that transcends tradition or the bounds of societal norms.  Abandon superstition, materialism, selfishness, or the intellect which leads you to ignore opportunities for service. Instead, experience a pure consciousness of love, the alpha of which is service.

In generosity and helping others, be like a river. In compassion and grace, be like the sun.” ~Melvana Celaeddin-i-Rumi

Magnetize your life today; serve others with a heart of love.  Be a river, be a sun.

Monday Miracle: BFF Yourself

Today, give yourself a HUGE hug.

BFF yourself, be your own best friend.  Often our altruism is directed outward towards others which leads you to forget to show the same kindness, happiness, joy to yourself. In order to balance your inner growth, you need to be your own best friend too. Take a moment to smile deep within in a knowing special way just for you. Then, allow your eyes to sparkle and feel that sparkle all the way to your toes. Next, inhale a deep breath of joy and feel the elixir flow through your nose into your lungs and let it coerce to every cell in your body. When you do, you are illuminating the whole earth.

Each inner kindness you show to yourself as your own BFF, alters the atmosphere of the earth and moves humankind to a circle of unity. The one hug, smile or breath of joy and happiness that you share with yourself and others today will be a part of the ring of hope that miraculously heals the world.

I hug you too.

Send me a note telling me what you did today to BFF yourself.
