Daily Reflections – Week 8

February 20February 20, 2015. Good morning! It’s another beautiful day in Paradise. Be grateful and rejoice. Today is a good day to envision new possibilities for our world. Close your eyes, go to your place of peace and imagine a whole new world. See a world without conflicts. See everybody living dignified, fear-free, beautiful, exciting and joyful lives. See yourself as one of those enlightened individuals who are contributing with new visions that will bring about the shift that will make life on this planet immensely better. See yourself as a leader of the movement that will bring Heaven to Earth. See yourself as the one you and the entire mankind has been waiting for. Go forth and change the world! You can do it! Namaste. ~ Piero February 21February 21, 2015. Good morning. Look around and see the Magic, the Mystery, and the Miracles. Be grateful and rejoice. Today is a good day to practice acceptance and patience. Know that you have a purpose for being here. Know that, as long as you are living an authentic life in alignment with your highest purpose, what must happen will eventually happen. So, relax. Don’t get agitated and impatient. Don’t try to force things and rush them into happening. There is a right time for everything. If you believe that everything will be OK then you have to recognize that everything is OK already. Life is a journey. Wherever you are, that’s your current destination. There are lessons to be learned and taught right where you are. Pay attention! Be alert! Every place has its gifts; acknowledge and accept them. Consider that where you are right now is where you should be. Instead of waiting for life to be perfect some day in the future, recognize that it is perfect already, and find peace in the here-now. Go forth and enjoy the present! Everything is perfect already. Namaste. ~ Piero

February 22February 22, 2015. Good morning! The sun came up again. Isn’t that a wonderful blessing? Be grateful for this Universe and for your life. Acknowledge the Magic, the Mystery and the Miracles. Rejoice! Smile! Go to the center of your being, to that quiet place of peace, and feel the Divine Energy tenderly embracing you. Feel how loved and protected you are. Now think about your ancestors and the people who came before you. Think about your parents and their parents. Think about your teachers and their teachers. Think about those friends of yours who have already departed. Go back in time and think about the Great Masters of Humanity, those sages whose wisdom continues to bless us. Now imagine that all of them, with their immense wisdom and power, are here with you, at your side, protecting, encouraging and advising you. Today is a good day to acknowledge the presence of these angels. They bless, inspire and guide you. Pay attention! Be alert! Think about the beautiful coincidences in your life. What other proof do you need that angels are always here with you? Realize that you are never alone and that you can always ask for divine help. Ask for guidance, listen to the whispers, accept the counsel, and take action. Surrender and allow the Divine Energy to flow and act in the world through you. Now go forth to change the world. And remember… you are never alone. Have a great day! Namaste. ~ Piero

February 23February 23, 2015. Good morning! Life is good, isn’t it? So much to be thankful for, right? Today is a good day to practice compassion and solidarity. Let us think about those who do not have what we have and let us realize how their well-being is important for our own. Let us reflect on how we are all in this together and how their happiness contributes to ours. So be generous today. Give your time and attention to the people you come in contact with. Be mindful of their needs. Be patient and kind. Believe that everybody can live a dignified life and give your contribution to create a new world where justice reigns. Remember… Nothing has more power to make us happy than making others happy. Namaste. ~ Piero

February 24February 24, 2015. Good morning! Today is a good day to practice paying attention. Today is a good day to pay attention to where you are focusing your attention. Begin this day with your morning meditation. Observe your thought stream and your emotions, acknowledge them, and gently return, as many times as necessary, to your place of peace. Now go forth with your day paying attention to your thoughts and emotions. Do like the master who when asked by his disciple what was his secret for always being so peaceful and happy answered, “I never leave my place of meditation.” Observe yourself. Pay attention to your attention. Practice the art of living mindfully. Never leave your place of meditation. Namaste. ~ Piero

P.S. Look at the flower. What do you see? Do you see the Magic, the Mystery, and the Miracles? Look again. What do you see? Pay attention! Be alert!

February 25February 25, 2015. Good morning! It’s another beautiful day in Heaven, isn’t it? This is the day that was given to us, the only one we actually have, so let us rejoice, be happy, and make the most of it. Today is a good day to redirect our attention and look inside ourselves. So don’t look for treasures out in the world today. Go inward instead. Look inside your own self. What you will find there may surprise you. If you look carefully you will find a treasure chest full of peace, contentment and happiness, and you will realize how rich you already are! Look inside, discover this wonderful treasure, and realize that you already have — and have always had — what you have been looking for! Namaste. ~ Piero

February 26February 26, 2015. Good morning! Today is a good day to think about the life you want to live. Today is a good day to remember that you are the creator of your life and that you are creating it at every moment by the thoughts, words and actions you choose. You are creating your life right now. Creating the life you aspire to live may look like a colossal challenge, but let this not discourage or distress you. Every big thing is made of little ones. Think of books, for instance, and how authors bring them to existence one chapter at a time, or, if you will, one page, one paragraph, one sentence, one word, one letter at a time. You are creating your life the same way; one day, one hour, one minute, one moment at a time. A healthy body, a sound mind, and all the other factors that together constitute a good life come about one decision at a time, one mindful moment at a time. So approach life this way. Stay in the present moment. Practice the art of living mindfully. Pay attention. Be alert. Take on one little thing at a time and make the right choice in each moment. It’s not difficult. It becomes easier with practice. No need for affliction. You don’t have to do it all today. Just do a little bit everyday. Be gentle with yourself, and ponder that the good life is not so much about doing as it is about being, it is not so much about building as it is about allowing. Focus on removing the self-imposed obstacles and allow your most beautiful self that is hiding within you to come to life. Namaste. ~ Piero

Daily Reflections – Week 7

February 13 2015

February 13, 2015. Good morning! Rejoice! It’s another beautiful day in Heaven! Today is a good day to think about the gifts you have received. Pause, breathe consciously, and calmly ask yourself, “How am I using the talents and skills that were given to me? Am I giving my best contribution to the world? Am I honestly and diligently applying myself to master my craft and be the best that I can be?” Do not focus on external approval. What is important is honesty with oneself. In your quest to reach excellence, are you doing your best? Are you working diligently and also gently? Are you satisfied with your effort? If so, that’s enough. You are not competing with anyone else, except yourself. You are not seeking anyone else’s approval, except your own. If external recognition, accolades, fortune and fame come your way, rejoice, but let not this be your focus. Self-approval is what you seek. Be sincere. Be honest. Be authentic. Be an example of integrity. Be a blessing to the the world and you will be blessed with a beautiful existence. Namaste. ~ Piero

February 14 2015

February 14, 2015. Good morning! Today is a good day to remember the Source, the inexhaustible spring that generates all that there is and from where everything comes. Today’s instructions are simple: acknowledge everything you have and cultivate the confidence that everything you want is coming to you from this Infinite Source. Make this a moment of gratitude and confidence. Know that you are safe. Namaste. ~ Piero

February 15 2015

February 15, 2015. Good morning! Rejoice! Today is another beautiful day in Heaven. Today’s instructions are very basic. Here they are: give thanks for what was given to you and enjoy the gifts. Don’t demand anything for yourself, or of yourself today. Live today as if everything is perfect already. Live this day as if there’s nothing to be done. Take the day off and pamper yourself. No worries. No to-dos. No wants. Simply be grateful and enjoy; that’s all. Everything is perfect. You don’t have to do anything. Make every moment of this day a moment of gratitude and enjoyment and share these exhilarating feelings with those around you. Namaste. ~ Piero

February 16 2015

February 16, 2015. Good morning! Close your eyes and breathe. Give thanks. Go inside to that place of peace and feel that you are safe, loved and protected. Listen to what your Tranquil Wisdom is telling you… “You are a child of the Universe. You are beautiful. The Universe is yours.” Remember that your thoughts create your reality so be mindful and choose to be here and to experience peace right now. Close your eyes and breathe. Make this moment a moment of peace. Create many of these peaceful moments throughout the day today. You are going to have another great day! Actually, you are already having a great day! Namaste. ~ Piero

February 17 2015

February 17, 2015. Good morning! Today is another beautiful day in Paradise. Rejoice and be happy! Today’s instructions: identify the many blessings you have received and give thanks. Look at what is near and what is far away from you, at the big things and the little ones, and acknowledge the Magic, the Mystery, and the Miracles in all. Your job today is not to add anything to your life through hard work and much effort, but to relax and remove the obstacles that may be preventing the free flow of Divine Energy in you and through you. Let the fear, the worry, the condemnation, and the anger go, and focus on being peaceful and bringing peace. Be gentle with yourself. Focus on becoming an unobstructed conduit and allowing the Energy to bless the world through you. You don’t have to do anything; the Energy will. Simply allow. Remember… You are a beautiful child of the Universe. You make all persons you meet feel that they are special and that they have something wonderful in them. You are a blessing to the world, and we are truly blessed to have you here with us. Thank you for being who you are and doing what you do. Namaste. ~ Piero

February 18 2015

February 18, 2015. Good morning! Today is another beautiful day in Heaven so let us be grateful and happy. Today is a good day to experience freedom and power. Go to that place of peace in the center of your being and know that you are not a prisoner of your current condition. There are infinite new possibilities for your life. You are free. You have the power to change. You have the freedom and power to create the life you want. Feel liberated and powerful. Feel ready to let the old go and welcome the new. Feel how good it feels. You are free to change. You are a powerful creator. Go forth and create a better life. Harness the power of the Universe and let it create through you. Namaste. ~ Piero

February 19 2015

February 19, 2015. Good morning! Today is another beautiful day. The planet continues to spin and travel through the cosmos. Amazing, isn’t it? Be grateful and happy. Today is a good day to reflect about change and renunciation. Go to that place of peace in the center of your being and feel the Energy. Go to the silence and listen. What is the Universe telling you? Is it telling that it’s time to change? If so, be cognizant that every change brings some loss with it. If you are going to embark on a new journey, know that you will not be able to carry everything you have with you. What will you leave behind? What will you relinquish in order to gain? Let go of the old in order to welcome the new. Harness the power of the Universe and create the life you want, the life you are being called to live. You can do it! Harness the power of the Universe and let it create the life you want, the life you are being called to live. The Universe can do it!

Namaste. ~ Piero

February 05 2015

February 5, 2015. Good morning! Lightning, thunder and heavy rain in this part of the globe where I live. The planet is alive and talking to us. I can hear it! The blessed water comes down from the skies and Nature explodes with new energy. I can feel it. I am energized! “Double H, Double W = I am Happy. I am Healthy. I am Wealthy. I am Wise.” Today’s instructions: Absorb the energy. Smile. You are in charge of your moods. You choose the weather you carry with you. You will have a good day or a bad one; it’s your choice.

Look at another person and see him or her as a little child that you adore. The one you are looking at is you. The world you look at is you. Can you see what is invisible? Practice. Learn to see. There’s something magical, mysterious and miraculous that we don’t see with our eyes, only with our hearts. Can you see it? Isn’t it wonderful? You are so fortunate. Rejoice!

Voici mon secret. Il est très simple: on ne voit bien qu’avec le cœur. L’essentiel est invisible pour les yeux.~ Here is my secret.

Catch yourself when you are envying someone else. Catch yourself when you are feeling incomplete because you don’t have what others have. Catch yourself when you are telling yourself that you should feel unhappy because you don’t have what you want. Pay attention to your thoughts and the emotions they bring up. Now, pause and breathe! Take a few minutes to visit the gap between your thoughts! Express appreciation for all the things the Universe gives you freely, those things that you didn’t have to work or pay for. Feel the cooling breeze on your face and give thanks. Feel the sun warming your body up and give thanks. Look at the spectacle Nature put up for free to you and give thanks.

And Piero… What About You?

What about me?

I am a work in progress, and am aware that this work will never end.

At this stage of my life, I am diligently practicing Silent Presence which is my way of connecting, communicating and communing with the Divine. During my moments of silence and solitude, I go within, to a place of stillness beyond the relentless activity of the thinking mind, and experience immense clarity and peace. My self-assigned mission is to bring that same peaceful awareness to as many moments of my life as possible, so I am present to witness the mystery of life unfolding and available to understand and give my best to the people I meet. I strive to become a peaceful and joyful presence: a bringer and infuser of peace and joy.

The practice of Silent Presence — my personal synthesis and practical application of what I have learned from studying and practicing Centering Prayer, Transcendental Meditation, Mindfulness, and Reiki — gave me a new understanding of the Mystery of Life.

In the silence and solitude it became clear to me that I am more than the central character in this story I have created, the story of my life. I am not this character, and I am not any of the stories I tell. I am much more than that. I consciously choose not to see myself as member of any tribe, or as an entity separate from others. In the silence and solitude, I went beyond the illusory boundaries created by my ego and experienced the sublime reality of Oneness.

From this experience, a call to action emerged. I felt called to help other individuals get to this same sacred space in order to attain this higher consciousness. My mission in life now is to guide individuals to that place of peace where they may experience the Oneness that will liberate and transform them, and, consequently, the world.

Enlightened individuals bring peace and justice to the world. Their developed empathy leads them to interact with others and with all Creation on this planet in a gentle, kind, patient, generous, respectful, compassionate, and fundamentally nonviolent way. They understand that life is much more than the mere struggle to survive, compete and accumulate; life is a spiritual journey of discovery always happening in the here-now.

On the other hand, individuals who lack balance and peace, spread seeds of unrest, turmoil, and conflict wherever they go. I think about those creators of discord, and I imagine how much better the world would be if they could find peace within themselves and bring it to their homes, places of work, communities, and everywhere they go.

At this stage of my life, I am doing my best to live mindfully: I try to remember to acknowledge the Magic, the Mystery and the Miracles in all my present moments. I try to be awake, alert and aware of the synchronicities. I do my best to be mindful of the presence of Divine Energy in me and in every single thing in the Universe.

I am practicing to remove the self-imposed obstacles that prevent this Life Energy to flow freely through me. At the same time I am practicing to remove the blocks that prevent this Creative Energy to manifest creations through me. I am practicing to become more aware of my moods, especially the ones that block the flow of the Life Force through me. I am being better able to catch myself when emotions such as fear, anger, hatred, worry, and envy begin to creep inside, and I am learning to acknowledge them and gently invite them to leave, not allowing them to get a hold of me. Guarding my mind from negative thoughts, and filling it with positive ones, has helped me create exceptional days. I believe in the power of positive thinking — of noticing the negative and focusing on the positive — and I choose to hold an optimistic outlook in life. I do simple things such as practicing to be upbeat, joyful, happy, enthusiastic, and caring. I try to remember to smile whenever I can.

I continue reminding myself to choose kindness, generosity, patience and forgiveness as my responses to the challenges of life, while hoping that I may bring more peace, joy and harmony to the lives of those I interact with. I strive to achieve this through attentive living which helps me produce mindful thoughts, and emanate considerate words and prudent actions.

I am practicing to live more and more in the here-now, so whenever I catch my mind entertaining regrets, remorse and resentments with things of the past, or worries about the future, I gently remind myself to look around, see all the beauty and good that surrounds me, and rejoice with the presents in the present. By doing so I am filled with a sense of gratitude for this planet, this beautiful Garden and amazing Playground that was given to us. This awareness inspires me to share the good news: “Heaven is here, if we want it to be.”

Through my writings and teachings I have been encouraging people to envision new possibilities. Some say, with resignation, that the insane, violent, selfish, and exploitative ways that we conduct ourselves in this world are the ways things have always been and will be. I refuse to accept that. What comes to my mind is George Bernard Shaw’s line in his “Back to Methuselah” play: “You see things; and you say, ‘Why?’ But I dream things that never were; and I say, ‘Why not?’”  

I see, as a real possibility, the emergence of a whole new world, a world without conflicts where everybody can live dignified, fear-free, beautiful, exciting, joyful, thriving, and contributing lives. I affirm that we have the capacity to transform ourselves and reach a refined state of enlightenment. I affirm that, from that enlightened state, we will be inspired to organize ourselves to live on this planet in such ways that will manifest Heaven on Earth.

I am confident that we are in the process of growing a critical mass of enlightened individuals, and that one day we will reach that tipping point when humanity will experience a fundamental paradigm change — The Big Shift — that will make life on this planet immensely better for all.

Meanwhile, I continue to examine my own beliefs in order to consciously unlearn the divisive prejudices I have unconsciously learned.

At this stage of my life, I don’t feel the need to belong, or to identify myself as a member of any tribe, or any kind of exclusive club. I don’t pledge allegiance and loyalty to any faction. I consider myself a human being, a citizen of the world, a child of the Universe, a member of mankind, the big family that includes everyone and excludes no one.

I am practicing and teaching the Peaceful Ways method because I have been transformed by it, and am convinced that the personal transformation that comes from diligent inner work is essential to bring solutions to our problems, and create a better world. The diligent daily discipline of Mindfulness Meditation, Creative Visualization, Positive Affirmations, Mindful Living, and the application of the Just-for-Today and Happy-in-this-Moment techniques, have helped me develop empathy, compassion, and the understanding that we are all in this together. This discipline made me experience inner peace, and I am convinced that widespread inner peace is absolutely necessary for lasting global peace.

Fundamentally, I see myself as a teacher who creates conditions for people to have insights that allow them to be better individuals, better parents, better leaders, better citizens of Heaven. I have come to the conclusion that my entire work — everything I have been doing through the Silent Peace Walks, the One Planet United initiatives, the Diversity and Personal Activism — DAPA — workshops, the Active Parenting courses, the “Discover your Purpose and Follow your Bliss” workshops,  the Mindfulness Meditation and Mindful Living classes, the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction programs, and even my English as a Second Language classes — everything I do converges to the same point: I have been trying to give my contribution to bring about a better world by promoting the practice of introspective investigation and growth. Through my workshops, retreats, and coaching sessions, I have been teaching individuals to be sensitive of other people’e needs. I have been encouraging people to respect one another. I have been teaching them how to communicate compassionately, lovingly and nonviolently, seeking to understand one another, avoiding unnecessary conflicts, and coming to agreements that are fair and good for all involved. In essence, I have been teaching human relations skills, or, if you prefer, I simply have been reminding people to be kind. That’s all.

I am convinced that inner work is indispensable: it liberates us from old ways of thinking, allows us to consider new possibilities, brings about a new awareness, changes the way we see everything, the way we relate to others and to Creation, and transforms us and the world. Committed inner work produces personal transformation: it enhances perception, brings about a new awareness, expands consciousness, and produces an experience of Oneness. With the experience of Oneness, empathy and compassion emerge. Empathy and compassion propel individuals to work for justice and peace in nonviolent ways. In summary, committed inner work produces positive personal transformation which leads to positive societal transformation. The personal transformation that comes from a committed  inner practice is what ultimately will bring all of us together!

At this stage of my life, this is my mission: to practice and teach what brings about kindness, compassion, happiness and peace. My work is to transform myself in a peaceful bringer of peace and justice, while sharing resources that may help others become peaceful bringers of peace and justice themselves.

My mission is to educate. My hope is that each individual that learns something from me may be inspired to share what they have learned with others. My hope is for this to go on and on, increasing the number of gentle, compassionate, good-hearted people. I see it as my little contribution to a wave of good that will spread all over the world, take it over, and transform it for the better.

I see myself as a humble  contributor, a teacher of future peacemakers, an instructor of the upcoming generations of peaceful individuals who will achieve, cultivate, and spread a higher consciousness. We will eradicate poverty, hunger and homelessness from the face of the Earth. We will make indifference and neglect with the pain and suffering of others disappear. We will put an end to all forms of indirect and direct violence. We will eliminate prejudice, discrimination, oppression, exploitation, mindless consumption, senseless waste, and irresponsible destruction of the environment. We will create a world without wounding and killing, a world without crime, war, and terrorism. We will be the bringers of Heaven to Earth.

I see this as my modest contribution to humanity, and this is where I choose to put my efforts. I love to reflect, write and talk. I use my intellect to understand the mystery of life, and I use words to explain what I came to understand. I use my moments of connection, communication and communion with the Divine to dream and received visions of a whole new world. I then use the gift of language to share these visions with others, and give people hope and direction. An explorer and inspirer; this is who I am. This is my mission and purpose in life. This is what I was brought here to do. This is how I am helping to bring social justice, peace, and, ultimately, Heaven to Earth.

Peace be with you.

Namaste.

Peace in our hearts brought peace to our families.

Peace in our families brought peace to our communities.

Peace in our communities brought peace to our nations.

Peace in our nations brought peace to the world.

There is peace on Earth and it began with me.

One world.

One community.

One family.

One heart.

THIS IS THE YEAR © 1990 David Roth

This is the year for making changes
This is the year for moving on
This is the year of overcoming
This is the year for growing strong

This is the year for a new way of thinking
This is the year for making plans
This is the year for reaching out and
This is the year for joining hands

Gone are the lonely nights of yearning
Gone all the dark and cloudy skies
All the unsteady bridges burning
All of the doubt and all the lies

This is the chance to recapture the power
This is the time to abandon the fear
This is the moment, the finest hour
This is the year, this is the year

This is the year that I put into action
All my desires and all of my means
This is the year that I follow my passion
This is the year of my dreams

This is the year I’m letting go of
Trying to change the ones I love
This is the year I turn it over
This is the year I look above

This is the year that I take my intention
Turn it away from distraction and talk
This is the year I take the step and
This is the year I walk the walk

This is the year that I put into action
All my desires and all of my means
This is the year that I follow my passion
This is the year of my dreams

This is the year I make it happen
This is the year I follow through
This is the year I move ahead on
All of the things I want to do

This is the chance to renew my commitment
This is the time to be conscious and clear
This is the moment for living fully
This is the year

This is the year
