Thought for Today: Deep Within

From: Thought for Today:
Deep Within:
Just as the highest tower needs a deep foundation, so too our higher thinking is based on going deep within.
(Thought for Today 5/29/09)

Its funny this Thought for Today came today. I was just reading a site called the “Zen in You” and her post on May 27th, 2009 was on Foundations for human beings; spirits, and persons. (Wow…I said that? Author: Caroline, ) There were some amazing responses to her post.

Here’s what I wrote:

When I think of foundations I think of being grounded: in balance with God, the Universe, and self. Centered in the Trinity, there is unconditional Love, Hope and Peace beyond all understanding. The foundations for humans as beings, spirits and as persons, for me, blends into the Love and energy of all that was, all that is, and all that will be: a continuum of all. I find this in nature, meditation and prayer. Your photo’s say what my words can not. Thank you for this post and for sharing your photo collage.Love and Light, Nina P.

How true it is that at the base of everything meaningful is a strong foundation. From Faith, to Love, to Relationships, to Business, to Friendships, to Life itself, a deep and firm foundation is essential. “Higher thinking is based on going deep within.”

In the craziness of day to day life, questions come rushing in from all over the place. We’re able to respond and get the job at hand done quite easily. Yet when we’re quiet and alone, those deeper, harder questions come. You know the ones that hit the heart and, at first glance, may not have an answer….. “What’s the meaning of Life?”; “Why am I here?”; “Where is God?”; “Is there a God?”; “Is there life after death?”; “Will I ever find true Love?” etc… You know, the hard questions, the self doubting questions, the disturbing questions, we all have them.

Don’t you also find that when you’re alone with yourself, meditate, pray, be one with nature; listening to that deep rooted voice in your soul, the answers are there? When we step out of the mind and into the depths of the soul/spirit we can hear the Higher voice. How can we know if it’s the right voice? If it comes from pure LOVE it is the right voice; the Higher Voice. Listen, its there, deep within, firmly founded in your soul… Listen.

May you find your foundation firm and deeply rooted and may you go deep within and listen to your Higher voice, your Higher thoughts and find Love, Hope and Peace.

Love and Light,

It is when we silence the chattering of our mind that we can truly hear what is in our heart and find the still, clear purity that lies within the soul. Spiritual love carries us into the silence of our original state of being. This silence contains the power to create harmony in all relationships and the sweetness to sustain them. From: Thought for Today;
of course I have to add my interpretive 2 cents...

Phone ringing, dog barking, kids screaming, dinner burning, toilets plugged, TV’s on Radio’s blaring, horn honking, baby crying, door bell buzzing, late for work, car won’t start,….
How on earth can anyone find silence? Life’s too crazy, to busy, to NOISY to even stop and think let alone be silent. The only clear purity seems to be the chaos called life. And to top it all off, the mind is racing with things to do, places to be, past conversations, idea’s, wishes, regrets, don’t forgets, what next, anger, love, lust, hate, frustrations, hardships, should have, could have, oh no I did, maybes, how can I, if only I ____, etc…, …. Again, I say, how can we silence the chattering of the mind and chaos of life?

Steal a moment for yourself that’s how. Sit in your favorite chair, go to your favorite place, wherever you can be with yourself and not be interrupted. For me it’s outside with nature, sitting under a shade tree or near a stream or pond. For you maybe it’s by the ocean, or lake, a walk in the park, a hot shower, or long soaking tub.... No matter where it is, make sure you are comfortable and have some time; time for you. Take five minutes, ten or even an hour if you can. It’s OK to be selfish sometimes. This type of selfishness will bring such harmony; it will empower you beyond imagination.

Breathe deep….in….out…. Let your shoulders relax……
Breathe deep…in…out…. Let the day roll away …….
Breathe deep…in….out…listen to the sound of your breathing…..
Breathe deep…in…..out…… let your mind wander…….
Breathe deep…in…out……feel the stresses ease………
Breathe deep…in….out…. and let go of frustrations……
Breathe deep…in….out…. and feel your body relax……
Breathe deep…in….out… and feel the air as it moves through you…..
Breath deep….in…out….. listen to the steady rhythm of your heart ..
Breathe deep…in…out….. let your soul wander……
Breathe deep….in…out…hear the quiet whisper of silence…..
Breathe deep…in…out….. feel the love around you……
Breathe deep….in…out…let the stillness overtake you…..
Breathe deep…in…out..listen to the wings of angels gracing your presence
Breathe deep…in….out…. sense the pure essence of yourself…..
Breathe deep….in….out….feel the Light envelope your soul….
Breathe deep ….in…out…listen to the Spirit of eternity…..
Breathe deep…in….out….. find the stillness of Peace…..
Breathe deep…in…..out….listen to the harmony of the ages entering your being….
Breathe deep…in…out….feel the Grace and Power of the Spirit…….
Breathe the calming energy, giving you Peace and Understanding….
Breathe deep know Unconditional Love; holding you, protecting you...
Breathe deep and feel the essence of your life…….
Breathe deep… and know all that you are and all you can be …..
Breathe deep and take the harmony of life with you..
Breathe deep and feel embraced with new found purpose and power.
Breathe deep and let yourself wander in this wonderful Spiritual Bliss.

When you are ready, look around and see the beauty of life; feel the warmth of love within yourself; touch the purity of your heart; hear the harmony of your soul; and taste the sweetness of life. You are armed with the knowledge and power of the Spirit. Your mind quiets, your heart opens, and you are ready for whatever life has to offer.

For me, when I listen to the silence within, I have balance in my life. I'm empowered with the knowledge of my being and filled with pure Spiritual Love. A Peaceful harmony fills my heart and soul allowing for fuller relationships and a less stressful life. The secret is to find time to quiet the mind and listen to the beautiful Spirit, the Light if you will, that lives in us and guides us every day.

May you take time to listen to the silence of your heart.... and may you find the peaceful power of the Loving Spirit guiding you through relationships filling them with a renewed sweetness for life.
