Anam Cara Making sense of life

Written by Tony Cuckson

Continued from page 1

When you begin to come to your senses you may in many ways appear rude. This is only atrepparttar beginning. You are changingrepparttar 122188 vibrational rate of your body. You are becoming more refined. You are becoming more holistic and holy. You are becoming an individual with your own sense of who you are.

As you come to your senses you begin to drop what is no longer needed.

You may drop toxic relationships. You will begin to avoid toxic people even if to do so may make you appear not "a nice person.” Let me tell you that you will survive such a judgement. Just stay with this. Coming to your senses gives you a sense of your own authority.

When you begin coming to your senses you allow othersrepparttar 122189 opportunity to come to their senses. They are toxic because they are separate from love. Coming to your senses allows them to senserepparttar 122190 perfume of wisdom. This isrepparttar 122191 sense of knowing who they are and knowing that they belong here as a Divine being. Is this not a gift worth spending time to discover and sharing with others?

Coming to your senses means you learn to avoid senseless action.

Much ofrepparttar 122192 action we engage with is designed to make us senseless. We turn up switch off and switch onrepparttar 122193 television. We zone out and we call this re-creation and renewal. Over a period we shut down our senses and we need greater sensationalism in order to getrepparttar 122194 same fix. More powerful images of violence and unhappiness are required to penetrate our defences. We become people ofrepparttar 122195 part and people apart. We become what my teacher Osho calls “logic choppers. We rationalize our lives. We forget who we are and do not wake up to this miraculous gift of life.

Thus we miss beauty.

Beauty is sensational. Our inner beauty is sensational. It has been covered inrepparttar 122196 dust of judgment and unacceptability ever since we were small children. Beauty is expressed fromrepparttar 122197 inner torepparttar 122198 outer. While outer beauty is a delight it will diminish in time. Inner beauty isrepparttar 122199 essence of love that lives withinrepparttar 122200 timeless. Learning to know and be this can be one of our greatest gifts in growing older.

We have to start now.

We are becoming more deeply separate from what is elemental. We are becoming more separate from our essentialness. It is time to return torepparttar 122201 wisdom ofrepparttar 122202 body. It is time to return torepparttar 122203 senses andrepparttar 122204 sensational inner awareness of “what is.” Then you may glimpse what it is to go beyondrepparttar 122205 senses torepparttar 122206 timeless wonder of now.

This winter do not fight tiredness inrepparttar 122207 body.

Take more rest. Go to bed earlier. We often think we should go to sleep at set times. We forget we are embodiments of energy subject torepparttar 122208 rhythms ofrepparttar 122209 seasons. Most ofrepparttar 122210 life force on this Northern hemisphere is now deeply asleep. This energy will begin to awaken in its own time. All life will begin to open torepparttar 122211 coming ofrepparttar 122212 light.

This week I wish you a sensational, sensible and sensuous experience of being in your body now.

Remember to breathe in and breathe out. Remember too thatrepparttar 122213 blessing is already here. You are it. All you have to do is become sensitive to your own sense of wonder. For a time this week give up “logic” forrepparttar 122214 “illogical” andrepparttar 122215 sensational. After adequate rest inrepparttar 122216 body wake up and expectrepparttar 122217 miraculous.

Love and blessings to you all.

That's Not Aunt Mary

We are not criticizing you, friends, forrepparttar way you often interact with each other, or fail to. In your hurried and harried lives, it often seems difficult to slow down and takerepparttar 122187 time, as you say, to smellrepparttar 122188 roses. Or to get to know a little bit aboutrepparttar 122189 sisters and brothers, your fellow travellers, you meet on your daily journey through life.

So we do understand where you are in your lives.

But we also want to say it would behoove you to slow down a bit every now and then. Take some time to smellrepparttar 122190 roses. Take some time to peek underrepparttar 122191 masks of those folks you encounter every day.

You all wear masks. And that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

But your masks also keep you from truly connecting with each other, even with those loved ones you see every day, perhaps even those you live with.

It takes only a few moments to ask someone you encounter on your daily rounds, “How are you?” And really mean it -- not just as a hollow, empty greeting -- but as a genuine expression of concern for your fellow traveller.

Just be open to listen, really listen, for a few moments -- and to connect with one another. Or to re-connect.

It won’t take a lot of your time, and it will yield rich rewards.

After all, you are all connected anyway. You are all one, even though you live inrepparttar 122192 illusion of separation.

So takerepparttar 122193 time to liftrepparttar 122194 veils of illusion, to look beneathrepparttar 122195 masks. And to rememberrepparttar 122196 love that binds all of you together.

Then you’ll never find yourselves in Giovanni’s and Giuseppe’s predicament of having no idea whorepparttar 122197 person before you is.
