Every Heartbeat

"Surrounding me is all the life that God created in His Love. It calls to me in every heartbeat and in every breath; in every action and in every thought."

Peaceful Day

A peaceful day in the park
After a time away
I'd missed it
So beautiful
The trees
The flowers
The squirrels
The open space and air
Freedom to BE
One with ALL THAT IS


A Peaceful Day in Thompson Park, East Liverpool, Ohio

The Best Medicine

I find that acceptance of who and how I am -right here and now- to be the best medicine.

Timeless Awareness

every taste
every sensation
every possible pleasure
is already present
in the timeless
awareness
that is beating my heart
what use
in chasing dreams
that have already
come true

Allowing

Felt "at a loss" today. . . apathetic to doing anything. Decided to let myself feel how I felt and just be with it - not to try to change it, ignore it, judge it or suppress it.

It was a great relief... just the break I needed. I was actually being allowing and kind to myself!

Song Unsung

“I have spent my days stringing and unstringing my instrument while the song I came to sing remains unsung.”

Always Here

Your hand is always in mine
your whispered endearments are my constant companion
you have never turned your face from me
no matter how many times I have turned from you

now I vow undying love
I meet you in the secret places I used to hide from you in
I hold you with tenderness I used to reserve for my pain
I would give you my life and my breath in an instant

for you are my true love
the one with no form
the one who has never been anywhere, but right here
in the singing of my heart

-Nirmala

While the Carpenter Works

The Beloved is building a new Home here. Take off your shoes and come in.

Old walls are being ripped down, new foundations poured. 

Let's celebrate, sing songs, laugh and dance while the Carpenter works.

Shine

Can you feel it?
You're a twinkling star
in the sky of the Beloved.

Shine,
shine brightly,
the heavens deserve your Brilliance.

-from Rendezvous with the Beloved by Wahiduddin (Richard Shelquist)

Prayers

My prayers have changed of late… Aside from being mainly prayers of gratitude, I find that the only things I ask for are spiritual gifts such as wisdom, insight, clarity, vision, understanding, knowledge, etc., along with guidance, strength and courage to share my gifts, talents and abilities.

I AM LOVE

Fear of being not enough and of having no purpose or value ran my life.

A heavy burden lifted when I finally understood and accepted that this fear had a basis in reality, as my (ego) identity, my persona, really IS not enough – never has been, never will be and never COULD be – and that it serves no purpose of true worth or value! What I was seeking to be all along was impossible for this earthly body with which I identified.

To “BE Enough,” all I needed was to remember and identify with my True Identity, not my false ego one. My True Self, One with Source, Love… IS, Has ALWAYS been and always WILL be ENOUGH.

My name Donna Rose Stewart means Lady Love Steward or Woman in Service of Love-God-Source-ALL THAT IS.

I AM LOVE. I AM Donna Rose, Lady Love, Woman of God… and I seek to always remember and never forget that this is so.

Defenseless

To defend my ego is senseless.
My True Self needs no defense.

A Bit of Celtic Wisdom

"If you send out goodness from yourself, or if you share that which is happy or good within you, it will all come back to you multiplied ten thousand times. In the kingdom of love there is no competition; there is no possessiveness or control. The more love you give away, the more love you will have."

-John O'Donohue (Anam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom)

Pathways

All pathways lead home to God.

Your Identity

"Where would the answer be but in the Source? And where are you but there, where the same answer is? Your Identity, as much a true Effect of this same Source as is the answer, must therefore be together and the same."

-from A Course in Miracles

Mirror of Truth

You are a mirror of truth, in which God Himself shines in perfect light. To the ego's dark glass you need but say, "I will not look there because I know these images are not true." Then let the Holy One shine on you in peace, knowing that this and only this must be. His Mind shone on you in your creation and brought your mind into being. His Mind still shines on you and must shine through you. Your ego cannot prevent Him from shining on you, but it can prevent you from letting Him shine through you.

-from A Course In Miracles

Is Faith Reality?

"Listen to what the ego says, and see what it directs you to see, and it is sure that you will see yourself as tiny, vulnerable and afraid. You will experience depression, a sense of worthlessness, and feelings of impermanence and unreality. You will believe that you are helpless prey to forces far beyond your own control, and far more powerful than you. And you will think the world you made directs your destiny. For this will be your faith. But never believe because it is your faith it makes it reality."

-from A Course in Miracles

The Right to Be

Message from Skunk today:

Always maintain your "right to be." Self-respect is the key to all (of these) situations, whereas ego is merely what you believe yourself to be.

"To give is no more blessed than to receive. But neither is it less."

The Ego Conspiracy

For the true conspiracy, look within.

The ego conspiracy is what is ruling this world. It's aim and sole purpose is to deceive us and keep us from remembering our true identity, to keep us fearful and locked into identifying with the smallness of our personalities, our body-selves, our need to protect and defend ourselves from those "out there" who deem to control, use, manipulate and harm us.

Look within for the truth and remember who you truly are.

ALL THAT IS shines on you with an Everlasting Love that remains unchanged no matter how much you may deceive or lie to yourself about yourself, others or this world we live in.

In Peace & Love,
Donna Rose Stewart

True Love

Surrender

"How did you get here? Close your eyes and surrender. The hurt that we embrace becomes joy. There are love stories, and there is obliteration into love. You've been walking the ocean's edge, holding up your robes to keep them dry. You must dive naked under, and deeper under, a thousand times deeper!"
-Rumi

The Simple Life

"To find the universal elements enough; to find the air and the water exhilarating; to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter... to be thrilled by the stars at night; to be elated over a bird's nest or a wildflower in spring - these are some of the rewards of the simple life."

All That Is Gold

All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.

Invocation

INVOCATION

God within me, God without,
How shall I ever be in doubt?
There is no place where I may go
And not there see God's face, not know
I am God's vision and God's ears.
So through the harvest of my years
I am the Sower and the Sown,
God's Self unfolding and God's own.

He That Singeth

"For he that singeth praise, not only praiseth, but only praiseth with gladness: he that singeth praise, not only singeth, but also loveth him of whom he singeth. In praise, there is the speaking forth of one confessing; in singing, the affection of one loving."

-Saint Augustine

Three Ways to Work on Yourself

"One way to work on yourself is by being present in the body. Another way is by expanding the heart. A third way is by quieting the mind. The wise person finds a way to work on all three at the same time."

Pathfinder

Wolf...
Teacher,
Pathfinder,
Moon-dog of my soul.

Howling,
Singing,
Teaching how to know.


Wolf is the pathfinder, the forerunner of new ideas who returns to the clan to teach and share medicine. Wolf takes one mate for life and is loyal like Dog. If you were to keep company with Wolves, you would find an enormous sense of family within the pack, as well as individualistic urge. These qualities make Wolf very much like the human race. As humans, we also have an ability to be a part of society and yet still embody our individual dreams and ideas.

The senses of Wolf are very keen, and the moon is its power ally. The moon is the symbol for psychic energy, or the unconscious that holds the secrets of knowledge and wisdom. Baying at the moon may be an indication of Wolf's desire to connect with new ideas, which are just below the surface of consciousness. Wolf medicine empowers the teacher within us all to come forth and aid the children of Earth in understanding the Great Mystery and life.

Did You Stop...?

"In many shamanic societies, if you came to a medicine person complaining of being disheartened, dispirited, or depressed, they would ask one of four questions. When did you stop dancing? When did you stop singing? When did you stop being enchanted by stories? When did you stop finding comfort in the sweet territory of silence?"
-Gabrielle Roth

Black Panther

Oh Midnight Jaguar...
Wash me with your courage
And steel me with your grace,

The void of time and space.

How to face the dark unknown.
Then let me bravely leap
Into the shadows all alone.

Fear Give-Away

I'd like to share an exercise with you that has helped me tremendously and hope it might help you as much as it has me !!!

It is: "Write your fears down and be willing to feel them. Breathe into them, and feel them running through your body into Mother Earth as a give-away." (from Rabbit in "Medicine Cards" by Jamie Sams & David Carson.)

After writing down my fears, I find it very powerful to speak them aloud as breathing into them and feeling them run through my body into Mother Earth ☼ :-) Oh, and please be sure to thank Mother Earth for receiving your fears and neutralizing them ! ♥♥♥ :-) xox

On Letting Go

They came to a stream. There stood a girl unable to cross for fear of ruining her dress. The first monk picked her up and carried her across. The monks continued their journey in silence. After a few hours the second monk turned and asked, "How could you pick her up when we have made vows not to even look at a woman?" The first monk replied, "I left her back at the stream but you seem to be still carrying her."

Intimacy is a Choice


"Intimacy is not given - it’s a way of being alive. At every moment, we are choosing either to reveal ourselves or to protect ourselves, to value or diminish ourselves, to tell the truth or to hide, to dive into life or to avoid it. Intimacy is making a choice to be connected to, rather than isolated from, our deepest truths at that moment."

Look Within

My thoughts, reminders and advice to myself, that will (perhaps) speak to you, also:

Look within for who you truly are. Within is the ONLY place the answer is found. It cannot be elsewhere.

"I am as God created me." It is not possible to be anything else.

"I am responsible for the world I see." Look within when upset or disturbed for any reason. Within is where to find how I created the world I see and how to heal it.

(Quotes are from A Course in Miracles.)

A Reflection


I no longer try to change outer things. They are simply a reflection. I change my inner perception and the outer reveals the beauty so long obscured by my own attitude. I concentrate on my inner vision and find my outer view transformed. I find myself attuned to the grandeur of life and in unison with the perfect order of the universe.

There are no more maps, no more creeds, no more philosophies. From here on in, the directions come straight from the Universe.

As one of Thomas Merton's monks has it, "Go into your cell and your cell will teach you everything there is to know." Your cell, Yourself.

Heaven Lives in the River of My Heart



Heaven Lives in the River of My Heart
by Vima Lamura

Love… l like it, I feel it to the core of my being, my marrow, my heart, my soul

once I thought I lost it… then Love found me

my eyes wakened in light like it was my last breath

Love was waiting for me to rise from the ashes of fear

to claim it, name it, in silence exploding profound

no words can touch that place… no words can touch… that place

Heaven lives in the river of my heart

That existential potency grabbed me when I was not looking

Made me forget every belief

Twisted me around to face that place, cry to erase the invisible trace that was not mine

no turning back, don’t want to...

Heaven lives in the river of my heart… Where all things are good and wonderful… Everything is good and wonderful

Enticing nectar of bliss cannot be mistaken for love, or you’ll miss it

Transparency reveals all and sets the terms…

we yearn… we burn… we learn… we earn…

then everything disappears…  becoming nothing

can’t talk about it much… no words can really go there… no words can touch its purity… eternal,  pure,  innocent, limitless

yet, I can taste it in my Soul

Heaven lives in the river of my heart… Where all things are good and wonderful… Everything is good and wonderful.

What happens to me does not define me…

It happens for me… and in that place… I can feel

All things are good and wonderful…

Heaven lives in the river of my heart…Where all things are good and wonderful… Everything is good and wonderful.

Make the unknown my friend by being the blossoming seed not knowing the fruit

Allowing in deep silent emptiness, I become the fulfilled potential of existence…  Because

Heaven lives in the river of my heart… Where all things are good and wonderful

How to Meditate

Guiltlessness

Guiltlessness... Something I've been working on for some time now!!!
"a doorway to liberation... an opening to the vast blue sky"





The following is A teaching by Pema Chödrön
excerpted from a talk entitled "Practicing Peace in Times of War"
published by Shambhala Publications

I was doing an interview with Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche recently, and I asked him the question: "Rinpoche, you have been living in the west for some time now, and you know western people well. What do you think is the most important advise you could give to a western dharma practitioner?"
And he said "I think the most important thing that western dharma practitioners need to understand is guiltlessness."

I said "guiltlessness?"

He said "Yes. You have to understand that even though you make a lot of mistakes and you mess up in all kinds of ways, all of that is impermanent and shifting and changing and temporary. But fundamentally, your mind and heart are not guilty. They are innocent."

So guiltlessness is very important in the subject of dissolving or burning up the seeds of aggression in our own hearts and our own minds.

Most of the striking out at other people, for us in this culture, comes from feeling bad about ourselves. It makes us so wretched and so uncomfortable that it sets off the chain reaction of trying to get away from that feeling. It's some very very habitual thing that happens.

If you got hooked, and then someone was to give you four seconds, or a minute, and then tap you on the shoulder and ask you what that feels like, it feels really bad, it feels like "bad me" and the aggression is turned against yourself.

Maybe if you waited four minutes and tapped them on the shoulder, what it feels like is - they are really wrong, and they did this to me, and its their fault that I'm in this situation.

But somehow, if at that moment, you were to pause, and start breathing and let the whole thing unwind and unravel, and hang out in the impermanent yet ineffable space - if you were to do that you might realize that all of this blaming of other people, when you went into it deeper, you would see that the seed of it was really some deep discomfort and aggression about yourself.

And if you went more deeply into that, you would probably find sadness.

And I quote this so much, this Poem of Rick Fields, where he said:

Behind the hardness there is fear
And if you touch the heart of the fear
You find sadness (it sort of gets more and more tender)
And if you touch the sadness
You find the vast blue sky

This is really what I am encouraging is the next time you feel yourself hooked, if you pause and you breath with it, and you don't act out and you don't repress, but you think of this quote, and you think the ones that will create the new culture that is needed are those that are not afraid to be insecure.

Whatever it is that you think at that moment, maybe this is what it feels like to be burning up the seeds that have caused all the pain on this earth - this is what that feels like.

I always feel that somehow you have to reframe that bad feeling - so that you see it as a doorway to liberation, as an opening to the vast blue sky.

Prayer for World Peace

The earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof.

I know there is but One Mind, which is the Mind of God, in which all people live and move and have their being.

I know there is a Divine Pattern for humanity and within this pattern there is Infinite harmony and peace, cooperation, unity and mutual helpfulness.

I know that the mind of man, being one with the Mind of God, shall discover the method, the way and the means best fitted to permit the flow of Divine Love between individuals and nations.

Thus harmony, peace, cooperation, unity and mutual helpfulness will be experienced by all.

I know there shall be a free interchange of ideas, of cultures, of spiritual concepts, of ethics, of educational systems and scientific discoveries- for all good belongs to all alike.

I know that, because the Divine Mind has created us all, we are bound together in one Infinite and perfect unity.

In bringing about World Peace, I know that all people and all nations will remain individual, but unified for the common purpose of promoting peace, happiness, harmony and prosperity.

I know that deep within every person the Divine Pattern of perfect peace is already implanted.

I now declare that in each person and in leaders of thought everywhere this Divine Pattern moves into action and form, to the end that all nations and all people shall live together in peace, harmony, and prosperity forever.

And so it is.

-Dr. Ernest Holmes

Let It Begin With Me

Let there be peace on earth
and let it begin with me.
Let there be peace on earth,
the peace that was meant to be.
With God as our Father,
brothers all are we.
Let me walk with my brother
in perfect harmony.
Let peace begin with me,
let this be the moment now.
With ev'ry step I take,
let this be my solemn vow:
To take each moment
and live each moment
in peace eternally.
Let there be peace on earth
and let it begin with me.

-Sy Miller and Jill Jackson

"Turn from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it." -Psalm 34:14

Look Inside Yourself

Do you know what you are?

You are a manuscript of a divine letter. You are a mirror reflecting a noble face.

This universe is not outside of you.

Look inside yourself: everything that you want, you are already that.

All One ☼

Truly We Are ALL ONE ☼ ♥ ☼

As sending healing energy to a friend of a friend yesterday, I realized on a much deeper level the reality WE ARE ALL ONE, that whatever I do to/for another, I do to/for myself and every one !!! That I cannot do to/for one, without doing to/for all ♥

...and a biblical passage popped into my mind, "...Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me." (Matthew 25:40, NASB) ☼

Today I Woke Up ☼





















Today I woke up
and I was everything I wanted to be.

I forgave myself for everything
that had ever made me feel ashamed.

I loved everyone everywhere…
even those who hurt me.

I sent love to those who have lost their way.

I wasn’t afraid of anything anymore.

I realized…
I was endowed with all the power of the Universe,
to think… to feel… and create,
and to love all that I have created.

I reveled in the realization that this
is the sum total of all
I have intended for myself to date.

I realized that right NOW is the only moment
there ever really is, was, or will be.

I knew that all my past, except what was good,
was gone.

I made a pact with myself never to forget
to hold this feeling as if it were a little child…
for indeed, it was.

-Daniel Votino

I Am Willing

Nothing to Fear

My mantra for the last couple of nights:
There is nothing to fear.
There is nothing to defend.

There is nothing to fear, nothing to defend. It's all a dream... "It's all Illusion" (my song) ♫ ♥ :-)

I realized yesterday that it's been 26 years since I first began studying A Course in Miracles (my soul number is 26) ! ☼ Perhaps, it truly is time for a breakthrough ♥ !!! ☼ :-)

The Ego: A case of Mistaken Identity Part3

The Ego: A case of Mistaken Identity Part 2

The Ego: A case of Mistaken Identity Part 1

Despite what the ego says, we ARE worthy...

About Others

It's not about whether someone is right or wrong (judging).
It's about helping them.

Defenselessness

Defenses are but foolish guardians of mad illusions.

When the teacher of God finally agrees to look past them (grotesque dreams/defenses), he finds that nothing was there.

It is not danger that comes when defenses are laid down.
♥ It is safety.
It is peace. ♥
♥ It is joy.
And it is God. ♥


ACIM, Manual for Teachers
VI. Defenselessness (p. 14)

Be Comforted

So now return your holy voice to Me. The song of prayer is silent without you. The universe is waiting your release because it is its own. Be kind to it and to yourself, and then be kind to Me.

I ask but this; that you be comforted and live no more in terror and in pain.

Do not abandon Love. Remember this; whatever you may think about yourself, whatever you may think about the world, your Father needs you and will call to you until you come to Him in peace at last.


The Song of Prayer

The Sixth Sense

Perhaps, all the times I've sent away that which frightens me, I needed to try to help that which frightened me ☼
