Lesson 2 A.C.I.M Workbook

I have given everything I see in this room[on this street, from this window, in this place]all the meaning that it has for me.

  1. The exercise with this idea are the same as those for the first one. Begin with the things that are near you, and apply the idea to whatever you glance rest on. Then increase the range outward. Turn your head so that you include whatever is on either side. If possible, turn around and apply the idea to what was behind you. Remain as indiscriminate as possible in selecting subjects for its application, do not concentrate on anything in particular, and do not attempt to include everything you see in a given area, or you will introduce strain.
  2. Merely glance easily and fairly quickly around you, trying to avoid selection by size, brightness, colour, material, or relative importance to you. Take the subjects simply as you see them, Try to apply the exercise with equal ease to a body or a button, a fly or a floor, an arm or an apple. The sole criterion for applying the idea to anything is merely that your eyes have lighted on it. Make no attempt to include anything in particular, but be sure that nothing is specifically excluded.

I have asked for a meaningful song to be shown to me today and I received this one . I am learning French however I did not understood it at the beginning but it has spoken to my soul and made me feel absolutely at peace and gave me some kind of strength.

I have checked the lyrics now and I can see why it actually happened πŸ’«πŸ’› I am happy beyond words πŸ’«πŸ’«πŸ’«

Hope you will enjoy it as well πŸ¦„β€οΈπŸ§˜πŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ’«πŸ’›

How to live a happy life

Stay Present

Theoretically , we all know what it means, however in reality it is very hard thing to accomplish for most of us , we are always thrown into thinking of the past or future , leaving little to no room for the present moment.

For many of us , there is always something better to focus on and think about than the moment we are currently experiencing . Yet , once we start diving into the present moment , and we let ourselves enjoy it, it becomes clear how much we reject ourselves and our needs, how we don’t appreciate the things we should be grateful for .

Finally when we have time to be present , we start to see everything differently . We start to see ourselves differently , we notice how we feel , how we react to everything around us, we notice how we neglected our need to feel and see even the smallest , the least noticeable things, now all of the sudden the touch which didn’t mean anything , has a different feel , words spoken are heard like a sweet melody, even simple cooking , becomes a relaxing practice and not a chore .

So I think the first and most important part to be happy in life is to become present as often as possible.

To do so , we simply must practice being Present , and with time and practice , we will become better at enjoying the present moment .

Don’t Judge Yourself

Well this one , clear as a day , will be probably the hard pill to swallow for anyone , because even when we fight against others to defend our opinion ,while we know that we are in the wrong , after the situation come to an end , we are left alone and we go back to the arguments or conversations we had , and we start to analyse everything we said and done , and then we relive the situation again , only this time we are hard on ourselves , not on others.

The process of judging starts and we are able to put ourselves under the biggest fire and speak very badly of our own self . That’s not something anyone should do , we should rather practice the opposite, which in that case would be , understanding ourselves ,seeing human being, in our own reflection , and try to make peace with whatever has happened , and what most important, move past it forgive and forget if that’s necessary for you to feel at peace .

We are all making silly decisions , and mistakes which we might regret at a later time but we all should understand that , that’s how life rules , we must learn and live and remember that it really isn’t that serious , we just make it be so we can feel like a victim . I know many would not agree but that’s not my concern as I have been overcoming this myself , and even though I understand a lot , I still need to look at myself from the 3rd person perspective and think how does it make me feel.

Anytime I feel it burden me or give me any sort of anxiety or ill feeling , I know I should look deeper and look for the answers within and not judge myself , because I definitely don’t see everything , especially when I’m furious ,angry or fearful , and the last one has been holding me back a lot for all those years , just now I know I was programmed to feel fear at any time , not exploring possibilities, not going for what wanted , settling for the less . That’s nobody’s best interest in life .

We are so scared of the death , yet we are walking through life as we already are on the other side . What’s the purpose of life , if we are scared to live and take any kind of risk .

Of course there is much more to it but that in the next post xoxo

Emphat 14:14

Lately I started to think , if going through spiritual journey is really a blessing or a curse in today’s world .

Don’t get me wrong . I feel that I had it much easier while I didn’t care , while I did not understand, when I could pity myself, be a victim etc etc.

However now , them things don’t come easy if they show up at all . Yes I get mad , I have some stupid arguments , mainly with myself or others in my head … but it doesn’t stay long like it used to be .

You might think , what ? Is that bad ? Well , maybe it’s not bad , but surely it makes you not so relatable … and it hurts ,especially when you can hardly relate with the people you had some sort of connection in the past , family etc .

Before if someone did me wrong , I’d be moody ass B …. speak a lot of crap ,even if it meant to hurt someone deeply. Now I feel like them feelings , don’t arise at all . Most of the time Im like , okay I see , well I hope you well. And I don’t even hold grudges.

I feel sorry for the person who “hurt me ” well is it because i finally understand that nobody can really hurt me ? Only the way I perceived things were hurting me ? I really hope it’s that .

Such a long way to go , so many things to understand, the more you try to understand, the less you feel like a human . The ego is not as loud which is beautiful but also scary .

At times the way I feel makes me wonder if I’m not too naive, yet I also see that my intuition is stronger than ever . I can sense someone’s intentions without any problems now , i make clear boundaries and speak what’s on my mind , that is something I struggled with in the past .

I know my worth , what I bring to the table and I’m definitely not afraid of eating alone . I don’t feel like I need to chase anything anymore. Material possession never impressed me even in the past , but now the only thing which makes me passionate and excited is the other open human being , open and healing , someone i can exchange experiences. And nothing else matter .

Superficial relationships .That’s something I don’t want to be close to . Not my cup of tea.

If you ever wondered,Β  if it’s worth like i do . Well i don’t have one answer because it’s hard at times , but it teaches you different values and hope to heal your soul.

Happy weekend πŸ€πŸ’«

Hello my loves ❀

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend and staying positive and joyful .

It’s only two weeks now and I’ll be finishing my weekend work. I’m pretty excited to see what’s coming next , I have some plans and ideas and for sure I’ll make it happen, just as I did with this work. πŸ’ͺ

It’s crazy and amazing at the same time , how many challenges we can take on at times , and still feel like we are doing NOTHING?! At times we simply don’t see , how far we have come and how many things we have done .

Until we start to put everything on paper or just simply tell ourselves what already has been done .

I see now that even though I have decided not to make any resolutions for 2022 , I have achieved already more than I would with making them as per every single past year! Which to me proves the point ,that it’s not the resolution itself but the need for change ,is what counts .

I honestly would never expect myself to be where I’m today and it’s still kind of far from where I want to be , but is also far away from where I used to be , something like in the middle . The journey usually is long and challenging but I see now that it was all worth it . The wait , patience, sleepless nights , heartbreaks , removing people from my life , it all lead me to where I’m now .

Now all I want for myself is a peaceful and free life . Where I work how I want to work. Love how I love and not to be blamed and ashamed for it . Trust in people, make friends with like minded people, forgive those who made me feel unwanted, not worthy and not loved and just live my life to the fullest. That’s my wish for 2022 . No regrets.

Love Honotata. ❀

Easily turned off

Everyday we come along the Alpha males who think that , sweet or vulgar sweet words will make us want them . Nothing can be more wrong. Personally I feel not only offended while I’m the receiver of the so called “compliment ” what’s more , I never want to exchange any sort of words with that person in the future .

As an empath , and someone who is still learning how to set clear boundaries, I tend to skip the message and don’t reply or reply with some sarcastic comment, hoping they will get the message, usually they don’t get it , let’s be honest about it.

Many times I have been wondering, how they can be so bold and stupid … it usually goes in pair . Yet I have noticed ,that I’m also the problem in this equation πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

My sarcasm or ignoring the message, clearly does not work . I started to block but then another one comes along and the situation reapet itself .

I’m kind but not stupid and I wish some people would understand that.

I need to start to care less if I will hurt someone because clearly they do not give a damn if im hurt by their actions.

Peace H.

Power vs Force – David R Hawkins.

The outer work can never be small if the inner work is great .

And the outer work can never be great if the inner work is small.

Meister Eckhart

“Awareness itself is beyond even consciousness. Therefore, it might be said that the absolute is unknowable exactly because its beyond knowing, because it is beyond the reach of consciousness itself ” – Power & Force David R Hawkins

As is commonly observed, growth, both individual and collective, can take place either slowly or suddenly. It is not limited by restraints, but by tendencies, innumerable options are open to everyone all the time, because people want the context that would make them attractive. One’s range of choice is ordinarily limited by One’s vision .” – Power & Force David R Hawkins

You don’t look depressed

How often do we think that we KNOW how depression looks like? HOW OFTEN are we deceiving ourselves in thinking that it is not something we will experience? Or that we never experienced it ? How many times have you thought, its not a big deal, I need to stop being so emotional because someone might think I’m a freak ?

I don’t know about you , but i know that I have been rejecting even the idea of possibility for me to be even slightly depressed.

Depression should be visible! You are happy everyday! You smile ! You don’t make any drama ! What ? Depression? Nah stop that now ! It’s just a bad day . ..” how many times we hear that from someone or even we tell it to ourselves? I’m sure many more times than it is necessary.

I thought as well like many of the people I know , that I don’t even have a right to think, that at any point I could be depressed! ” because why?” You have no problems !how many of us heard it ? Sure millions! But no problem is too big or too small !

I have been checking my old photos , exactly from the last two years, also some videos , and maybe I wasn’t on some verge of depression. .. or maybe I actually was !

But let me tell you ,that what I have seen and heard ,was simply a cry for help , yet nobody heard me ! And somehow I shall say it passed ? How ? First I mediate daily and have my own daily routine which helps me a lot but just now I have come to the understanding that I did struggled a lot! But I was very good at hiding it. Nobody would ever say that I have any problems . Yet there was quite a few in that period of time.

So let’s just remember, Depression has many faces . On me I could see mainly smiling face with dead feeling inside . That’s probably why I hate looking back at the photos from the last two years….

We need to learn to feel and express ourselves more and more each day. I think that even now I’d benefit from going to the secluded place and just shout whatever I feel out loud. Let it leave my body, don’t let it weight me down .

I hope you all staying safe πŸ’“

Love and courage ❀
