Rather than seek attention

I would like to be authentic and truly be free

and forget about the other characters

I just want to give and not look back

This is the way I prefer to be

to move with the universe and the peace that I seek

We must not get caught up in what they think

Today’s Positive Poetry…When you are on the wonderful path

Forest, Hiking, Trail, Away, Path, Moss

When you are on the wonderful path, the world is truly a different place

What once  looked impossible, magically works out, and everyone asks, How do you do it?

When you are on the wonderful path, answers show up from out of nowhere

You think,” I need to know this, I need to know that”, and the whole Universe goes into action

I don’t quite know how to explain it, you can see the harmony, and the harmony favors you

When I think about it, I can barely feel my body, “this is so good, what comes next?”

I don’t quite know how to explain it, everything you do becomes a mission from God

On a mission from God, nothing can stop you, so you do what you must, and remain sincere

Remind yourself, that you are in Heaven, not next week, not tomorrow, but right here and now

Remind yourself, that you are one with the Universe, you give more than ever before, and things magically work out

Tell yourself that this is the best day ever, and be open to see the beauty, everywhere you go

Think of yourself as on the great ferryboat, riding through Heaven, Repeat your mantra and meditate all day long

Be Free! (Poetry)

Moving into a style
that I used long ago

This style that I use
it helped me to be free

And freedom is a subject
that I don’t take lightly

Oh how much
do we want to be free?

In order to be free
I let go of who I am

I stand on the mountain
and soon forget my name

I meditate deeply
move with the cosmos

so how can I care
about what they think?

I trust in the Universe
and I trust in me

I move on this trust
every single day

A new way of life
Im happy to move into

One small step
One small step

From the seventh floor
I move back to ground level

And I come back here
with a brand new style

I ask the higher place
what to do next?

I await like a panther
about to make a leap

So now my next move
is not my next move

But don’t even trip
because it really is

What we really want
comes from within

The question is
do we really know this?

Is my story going to be a great story or not? (a page from Craig’s Journal)

My teacher, Mr. Ambrister, used to tell me to go to the churches and teach the ministers how to meditate. I seemed to always feel uncomfortable whenever I thought about taking such steps. I thought I may be looked at as arrogant or crazy with people asking, “Who does he think he is coming to our church wanting to teach our minister or us how to meditate?”

But now I find myself questioning, what do I love? How much do I love my causes? Am I now going to be willing to put myself out there beyond my comfort zone? Am I now ready to take some risks that I have been holding back on? Is my story going to be a great story or not?

Today’s Positive Thought and reminder (The secret of all secrets)

Clouds over IL-RT50

Krishna says “This is the secret of all secrets.  Lay down all duties and follow me and only me.”

Dr. Thind said “if I take my mind off God for a minute my whole body aches.”

Jesus said “seek ye first the kingdom, and all these things shall be added onto you.”

My teacher, Mr. Ambrister said “even if you need a million dollars, go out and get it just remember to repeat your mantra.”

Craig’s Thoughts:

Krishna says to” lay down all duties.”  Our duties are our cares, our worries, our concerns, even our hopes and dreams.  Krishna also says to “follow me and only me.” Krishna represents God and Heaven and to follow means to focus.  The idea is to forget about your problems and focus on the good.  Focus on the magic focus on the beauty.  Focus on the harmony.  Meditate and keep your mind on God.

Dr. Thind says if he takes his mind off God his whole body aches.  If he keeps his focus on the spiritual, he appears to be in Heaven and all is well.  If he forgets and places his attention on fears and worries hopes and dreams in no time all hell breaks loose.  The more we grow spiritually, the more we must have our mind on higher things.

Jesus says if we seek first the kingdom all will be added.  To seek is to focus.  To focus is to think.  Keep the eternal and Heaven in your mind at all times and then you can tend to the other things with what is most important in mind.  If you do this all will be added, your hopes, your dreams, your good, peace, happiness, you name it, it is yours.

Mr. Ambrister says “even if you need a million dollars go out and get it.”  In other words do not deny this world, your feelings and desires.  Live and get the experience.  He then says “just remember to repeat your mantra.”  Keep God and the mystical path in your mind at all times, as you move about in this world.  Keep your focus on the higher as you live this life.

I say all these great ones say the same thing in their own language.  Keep your mind on God, the magic of the Universe, and Heaven at all times.  Even in the midst of the problem, bring it back to God and the Universe.  Ask “What are you trying to tell me?  What do I need to learn?  How are you trying to get me to better see Heaven, right here,right now?” Tell yourself, “I know you have this taken care of as I move forward, even if I can’t see it yet.” Then meditate, repeat your mantra, and live your life


Today’s Positive Reminder (“Nothing just happens everything happens just”)

English: The sun shining through the trees at ...


n life there are absolutely no coincidences.  Everything is happening exactly as it should be, precisely according to plan.  Quite often when we look around, it doesn’t appear this way.  But when we start to understand the way life works and how we’re made up, we begin to see that everything is happening exactly the way God has planned it, and that we also played a part in that plan.

Who you are, where you were born, who your mother is, who your father is, your husband, your wife, your career, every aspect of your life is happening exactly as it should be at this moment.  When it changes, that’s the way it should be at that moment.  What determines all these factors in our lives is the way we see ourselves, and the way we feel about ourselves and the world. Our consciousness actually determines our whole life situation.  At the same time this is going on with everyone else.  Their consciousness is determining their whole life situation.  So just the right people and just the right events come into our lives.  We also come into just the right people’s lives in just the right situations to give them the experiences they need.  This is all based on who we are and who they are.

Today’s Positive Poetry (On not striving and doing nothing.)

English: Morning mist on Lake Mapourika, New Z...

The ancients say that you can become master of the universe without striving.

I say that everything you could wish for is already accomplished, this is the Heavenly moment.

The ancients say that “I do nothing and the people are reformed”.

I say that if you allow things to happen and know the universe works in your favor, there is no need to force anything.

Not striving and doing nothing is the secret of the ages.

How does one not strive and master the world?

Strive for the inner path and let go the outer worldly results.

Move on your life’s missions  like they matter more than anything, but don’t be concerned about the outcome.

How does one do nothing and see miracles?

Meditate, pray, and and keep an eye out for the signs.

Then do what the Universe tells you to do and let the rest take care of itself.

What comes next will be incredible.

How can one know if this is true?

There is only one sure way to find out.

When we let go and become an instrument

Early this week I was marveling at an epiphany I had.  It was not the first time this idea came to mind but it was quite deep to me all the same.  I found myself thinking about how much time and energy we spend building our ego and proving ourselves.  I call it building up our false self, because realizing our true self would be something all together different.

When we are building the false self we are trying to get the world to see how great we are or how worthy we are.   This is the part where many of us will say “yea, I know people who seem to spend their whole lives doing this.  That’s what Bob does, always trying to prove.” But wait, forget about Bob.  This is what we do.  You and me.  Even those of us who are working on ourselves.  We spend most of our time trying to prove ourselves.  We have to make sure everyone knows how much we can get, how much we can achieve, how smart we are, how we are special, kind or different, edgy, self realized, God realized, you name it.  We spend most of our energy doing this, proving. Some of us don’t want to be great, just not lesser than.  We just want to be worthy and have people understand that we mean well.  Others of us are so cool we don’t care what anyone thinks.  This is also a way to let the world know just how realized and unattached we are.  And our attention is still on how we are perceived all the same.  But what happens when we let go of this false self that we have spent so much energy building up and defending.

The answer is we become free.  We become free for however long we are able to let go.  We don’t worry about what people will think and our dealings become much more pure.  We also become one, instruments of God and the Universe.  As a matter of fact, in addition to meditating often, it is a good idea to remind ourselves that we are not who we and others have thought us to be.  We are simply here to be of service in whatever way the Universe sees fit.  We can also think of God working through us as we perform our various activities. We can say “I am just doing what God wants me to do, serving the way that is best for the Universe and all involved.”  We can mean well, do our best and not be attached to how the situation works out.  We can feel good because if we are judged we know that is not us that is being judged we are just instruments following the plan as we best understand.  We are even open to changes in the plan if we are made aware there needs to be.  If we move forward in this way, we will find less of our ego involved and feel much more free and happy as we carry out our missions, and live our lives.

MeditativeZone and Positive Ambassador member Sujatha Sriram talks about renewing her life

I am going to renew by rewiring my brain on being more open to the moment of now around me.. Inhale every second with positivity coming  my way .. Be more regular in pursuing my yoga and substantiate with gym exercises to make it more receptive ..When iam more sync  with  my inner energy and rhythm, i would bring in more creativity into the field of work i am in and inculcate a sense of well being around, a sense of committment, ownership into the task given which in turn will renew the world around me . This will activate the flow of positivity, harmony, consciousness and renew the whole universe as universe is always listening …  I also plan to enrich my life with pursuing my passion of writing and sticking to basics which is the key of every success and connections with the world around us….Get , set , go ….

Journey begins………… Sujatha
