Today’s Positive Thought (Ask yourself, What do you think the world needs to see?)

I saw Oprah Winfrey in an interview with the cast for the movie The Butler.  She said something that was very interesting.  She said that some time ago she came to the conclusion that she did not plan on acting any more and was hesitant about taking the role.  Oprah said that what made her decide to take the role as the wife in the upcoming movie, was that she felt that the world needed to see a middle class African-American family in a drama on-screen.  As she pointed out you do not see this very often.  She also pointed out other attributes that she felt that the world needed to see brought out by this character in the film.

As I watched her talk I thought to myself what is it that I want the world to see?  What part do I need to play on the big screen of life in order for it to be seen?  What is it that I want my children to see to be inspired to live the best life that they can?  What is my new movie and role going to look like?

Don’t be mistaken, we are all playing a part and it is being watched by the world.  Some of our parts are being played marvelously and serve as an inspiration to others.  .  Some of our parts may not be so interesting.  Some of us have played great roles but now it is time for another.  It is up to us what part we are to play.  If we pay attention to our hearts and intuitions we will be contacted and asked to play the role of a lifetime.  If we are still here it is not too late.

This is my question to you.  What is it that you feel the world needs to see from you?  Are you willing to do what it is you have to do to play that role?

Being Magically in Touch With the Universe

During an interview with the cast of the new movie The Butler.  Forest Whitaker began to describe an experience he had during the time period of filming the movie.  He spoke about being in a blue realm where time did not exist.  He kept referring to the blue color of where he was and how wonderful it was.  To some it may have sounded quite weird, but I was so surprised and excited I could barely sit as he spoke.  This experience he spoke of was no make-believe thing.  The ancient meditation masters would say that he was in the realm of the thousand pedaled lotus or Sahanswal Kanwal.  I would simply say that he was deep in the zone.  And the blue color he spoke of is very distinct to that region.

During high meditation experiences or even times when we are truly in the zone, we can visit such states.  The more you embrace and get into the moment and lose yourself in your adventure, the more likely it is you will have such an experience.  

During these times you can have the experience of not even feeling your body, or hearing the Om vibration so loud you feel like you are surrounded by it.  At times you may see light emitting from people and objects in the room.  The grass and trees may be more green and almost vibrating.  Sometimes you can close your eyes and travel to other places in your mind in an instant.  This is nothing strange.  These are the byproducts of being deeply in-touch and in the moment.  It is also the Universe’s way of letting you know that there is much more to this life and this world than we may usually think.
