THE GIFT OF AWAKENING

Awakening is simple. Healing is available in a way that defies reason. But there are certain steps which each of us must take.

The first and most essential step is to know, through your own experience, the awakened state of Being. It is a state of profound inner silence, peace and stillness.
The second step is to come into right relationship with certain aspects of yourself including your ego, your thoughts and your feelings. You must bring the energy of love and acceptance to every aspect of yourself. All judgment of yourself and others must end if you are to awaken into the truth of life.

The third step is right understanding. We are souls on an extraordinary journey. Once you know the true nature of your journey, you will begin to awaken. Everything that has ever happened in your life will suddenly make sense. You will come to regard the problems and difficulties in your life as nothing more than opportunities to learn your lessons and awaken into Oneness.
The fourth step is to come into alignment with the universal laws of life. If you are to awaken fully, it is necessary to live in integrity in every aspect of your life.

As you awaken, your experience of yourself and the world will dramatically change. Fear, anxiety and conflict disappear as you enter into a world of love, peace and abundance. You come to know yourself as LOVE.

You encounter the living Presence of God within you and within everything around you. Separation dissolves as you enter into Oneness. This is what is meant by enlightenment. It is what Buddha spoke of. It is what Jesus spoke of. It is what Lao-Tzu and Krishna spoke of. (Meditations from Conscious One Daily Guru 12/30/03)

WHEN YOU CHANGE, EVERYTHING CHANGES

The day you are different, others become different. And you will see them differently, too. Someone who seemed terrifying will now seem frightened. Someone who seemed rude will seem frightened. All of a sudden, no one has the power to hurt you anymore. No one has the power to put pressure on you. You become truly happy, the essence of spirituality. You can do this by putting this program into action, a thousand times: (a) identify the negative feeling in you (b) understand that they are in you, not in the world, not in external reality (c) do not see them as an essential part of ‘I’. These things come and go. (d) understand that when you change, everything changes.

The first essential ingredient of success

A GOAL IS ESSENTIAL FOR YOUR SUCCESS

There is no achievement without a goal. In whatever position you find yourself, determine your primary objective first. Until your thoughts are linked to a purpose there can be no accomplishment.

Only you can determine what you want out of life. You decide on your major objectives and goals. A goal gives you a place to start.
If you don’t know where you’re going, how can you expect to get there? The world always makes room for the person whose words and actions show that they know where they’re going.

The first essential ingredient of success is to know what you want.(Frank Kreze http://www.lmicanada.ca/blog/a-goal-is-essential-for-your-success.aspx)
