The topic of Love encompasses many areas of our intricate lives.  Love is more than loving another person; it includes loving ourselves, accepting faults, practicing gratitude and loving through difficult situations, among many other things.

Did you celebrate Mother’s Day or Father's Day recently?  Like we do on that special holiday, it’s important to express gratitude for our mothers, fathers and parental figures in our lives, every day!  Even if you weren’t close to your mom or dad, chances are there was some adult whose opinion of you mattered.

Why do we often wait to only once a year to tell someone how much they are appreciated or how much they’ve helped us?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Try some spontaneous kindness and see how it makes the recipient feel, and pay attention to the wonderful feelings that you’ll also participate in.  Think of gratitude and kindness as like any other skill that you want to master in life – it just takes practice!

While you’re spreading some thoughtfulness to others, don’t forget about you!  We can be our own worse critics, but there’s a lot we do really well.  Determine each day to get to know yourself a little better and get to know what’s true for you – and have fun doing it!

Remember my question from the beginning of Seven Steps to Inner Power?

 

 

Asking this and seeking the answer is absolutely essential if you wish to express your fullest potential in life.  Loving yourself is an important part of the answer.

Here is an excerpt from my book, The Silent Master: Awakening the Power Within:

Appreciation is the first step. What if you could only use certain parts of your body? Have you ever thought of what you would do if you had only one arm? Or no arms? Or no sight? Most people who enter my martial arts school are physically healthy and take their bodies for granted. It's for this reason I sometimes have my students try to do what they think are normal everyday things without the use of their legs or arms or eyes. Very quickly they learn how complex the movements of their hand can be, or how precious their sight is. This physical body is a miraculous gift. Utilize it, care for it, strengthen it. Don't waste it or take it for granted.

It's a two way process. For instance, when you encourage your body to go the extra mile around the track, one more mile than you did the day before, you're sending a message to your mind to the effect, "I can grow; I can change; I can break limits." This good message that your mind receives when you demand extra performance from your body then goes on to encourage even better performance, and not just in running. The message will now extend to other areas of your life. "I can grow; I can change; I can break limits" could also help you create new and better procedures at work that result in a promotion or a better position.

Physical Discipline Helps Energize You

Some people say, "I don't have time to worry about physical exercise right now. I have other problems. All I want to do is just get my life together at this point."

As I've said before, body and mind are one. Because your body is connected with your mind, bringing your body under control means bringing your mind under control. And vice versa, of course. Whatever disciplines you apply to your mind affect your body.

Here is an excerpt from my book, The Silent Master: Awakening the Power Within:

In the biblical account of creation, for instance, the first command of creation is "Let there be light: and there was light." The first and most pure form of material manifestation is light.

Likewise, the first and most pure material manifestation of your Silent Master consciousness is light. Light is the link between who you are as pure consciousness and who you are as matter. Pure light is unformed and unshaped like pure consciousness, yet it is the medium that shapes and forms itself into material manifestation. It is the link between the formed and the unformed. The candle meditation connects you with this aspect of yourself energizing this inner aspect of your being by focusing on it.

Just as you purify your thinking by choosing what thoughts and words you will concentrate on, you must purify the images that you visualize. You can use the previous six part meditation that we used for concentrating on an idea to use for your visualization. Instead of dwelling on the words that describe an idea you want to manifest, dwell on the picture of your desired manifestation. During that time, allow no other pictures to enter your mind.

When you want a particular manifestation to take place, you may not know exactly how to frame your thinking so that you focus on the right ideas. This is where the right use of visualization can help you. Since visible forms are a picture of your ideas, holding the picture in mind automatically connects you to the idea attached to the picture. Visualizing the picture of the desired manifestation will help propel it into form.

Visualization Captures the Energy of Ideas

As we discussed, material forms are pictures of our ideas in consciousness. It is important to remember that everything you see materially existed first as an idea that you entertained. When you want to change the picture, then, you must work with the ideas, not only with the picture.

Here is an excerpt from my book, The Silent Master: Awakening the Power Within:

You can do a similar type of concentration throughout your day by deciding to catch yourself in negative thinking and replace the negative thoughts with some kind of positive affirmation. This is particularly useful, for instance, when you are trying to heal some physical condition. Your concentration throughout the day may be to deliberately turn your thought away from the pain (or away from the appearance) every time it enters you mind. Such a discipline does wonders to eliminate something that has gained momentum in your life solely because of your attention to it.

You can also do the same type of meditation described above without concentrating on anything in particular. Your simple intent of wanting to open to the awareness of your Silent Master and to experience its light, peace, and silence is a refreshing and energizing meditation.
