“ ALLOWING
The great secret of spiritual science is allowing something
to happen without doing it. It needs great understanding and
awareness to allow things to happen.
No doing is required on our part, because whatever we do,
we do out of our confused minds.
It can’t be something really deep, because the mind itself is very shallow.
Seeing this, understanding it, a new approach arises—
the approach of letting go.
The great secret of spiritual science is allowing something to happen
without doing it. It needs great understanding and awareness
to allow things to happen. The mind is constantly tempted to interfere.
It brings its desires in, it wants things to be according to it,
and that is the whole problem. We are tiny parts of this vast existence.
To have some idea of one’s own is to be idiotic.
That is exactly the meaning of the word idiot—
to have some idea of one’s own.
It is like a wave in the ocean trying to do something on its own.
It is just part of an immense ocean. It is neither independent nor dependent,
because it is not separate at all.
The wave exists not, it is only a manifestation of the ocean.
So are we, and if we understand it, then all anxiety disappears.
Then there is nowhere to go, there is no goal to be attained,
and there is no possibility to fail or be frustrated.
A great relaxation comes…this is the meaning of surrendering; of trusting.
Then life takes a totally new color.
It has not that tension that ordinarily is always there.
One lives relaxedly, calm and quiet, at home. ”

Hello infinite beings! Two days ago I made this minibook/ album for journaling and other crafty things but mainly as a place to put things that make me happy. I want to think thoughts that are in alignment with my inner being as much as possible and to be connected to that stream of pure positive Well Being more frequently. I tend to let minor situations upset me which then fuels those negative thoughts and before I know it I’m in a not-so-good-feeling state.

I love paper-crafting and creating things that inspire myself and others to realize and remember their magnificently eternal power. I’ll keep sharing as I do more pages :)

Namaste earthlings, keep creating and remember that youa re always enough!

Breakfast // Let thy food be thy medicine // Anytime what someone else thinks about you becomes more important than your own balance with self, you are in a less-than-healthy position. Anytime you take action to try to manipulate or affect others’ opinions or attitudes toward you, you are in a less-than-healthy position because you are replacing your own guidance system with their opinion.
