What Is Important (Goodbye and Good Luck)

What Is Important (Goodbye and Good Luck)

Sunrise 15 Jan 2016

My most recent posts have been about –

  • Focusing on one idea and being full of that idea alone.
  • Getting out of my own way, and
  • Being powerful in silence.

Research for this blog has allowed me to understand where to put my time. So thank you to the blogosphere for that.

It has made me realise blogging is not essential to my journey right now. For me, it is ‘busy work’ that is taking away from what is important.

I can see now that creating this blog was another way of me getting in my own way. Procrastinating around what I need to be focusing on.

I am still going to do this experiment to change my life, just not on a public forum.

Thank you so much to the people, who followed, liked and commented. Taking the time to do that means a lot to me.

Goodbye and Good Luck to all – from Tess.

Silence

Silence

Sunrise 14 Jan 2016

“You are most powerful when you are most silent. People never expect silence. They expect words, motion, defense, offense, back and forth. They expect to leap into the fray. They are ready, fists up, words hanging leaping from their mouths. Silence? No.”

-Alison McGhee, All Rivers Flow To The Sea.

 

Create My World

Create My World

Lisa Nichols quote:

  • “The first person who had to get out of the way of me letting my light shine was me.”

This has been so true in my life. I have been aware for a long time that I create my world but I got lazy about it. Consequently, I cannot complain about where I am now.

I have to take control.

  • Work out exactly what I want.
  • Be in action.
  • Assume the position.

Regards from Tess.

Focus for Success

Focus for Success

Sunrise – 12 Jan 2016

The Indian Hindu monk, Swami Vivekananda (1863-1902) said:

“Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life – think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea alone. This is the way to success.”

These are powerful words. Creative visualisation at its best.

The formidable focus this quote talks about is inspiring.

Regards from Tess.

 

What is it Worth?

Photo of Sunrise for 10 JAN 2016

This morning’s show was amazing. The sun was huge. A huge striking ball of pink rising up over the horizon. It was actually pretty humbling.

In Shakti Gawain’s book ‘Creative Visualization’, she talks about the fear that keeps us trapped, being the fear of experiencing our own feelings.

Watching the sunrise gives me the courage to face my feelings.

Regards from Tess.

 

Dawn

DAWN – 9 Jan 2016

Dawn is the time of day when there is light but the sun is still below the horizon.

This morning’s dawn light splattered on restless clouds was flabbergasting. The layering of colour on the horizon was pure harmony.

My photo does not do it justice, and please ignore the power lines passing rudely through the middle.

I came across this quote by author Anne Lamott. It struck a chord with me.

“Hope begins in the dark, the stubborn hope that if you just show up and try to do the right thing the dawn will come. You wait and watch and work, you don’t give up.”

The need for hope must come from some sort of darkness. It seems to me that the difficult part of looking for dawn in the darkness is working out where to start. In my short experience with ‘dawn’ it has already been worth the challenge.
