May 1. Good morning! Today is another beautiful day here in Heaven, isn’t it? Look around and see beauty. Look with the eyes of the heart and see the Magic, the Mystery, and the Miracles that surround you. Give thanks for all the blessings, for all the gifts life gives you, and be happy.
Today is a good day to reflect on the reasons for our existences. Why are we here? Think about it. Why do you think we are here? What do you think life is about?
The answer that comes to me is that we are here to learn and to be transformed. We, all of us, are on a journey of personal transformation. Some of us are more aware of this fact than others. Many hear the calling and take on the work of working on themselves, but many are merely sleepwalking through life.
Today is a good day to think about the journey that leads to awakening. There are many paths: some are rougher, some are smoother. Which path is yours? If you are reading these lines and are engaged in a diligent daily discipline of working on yourself, be happy. You have accepted the calling for personal transformation, and you already are on your sacred journey, walking on your sacred path. You are a spiritual warrior.
Now, may I ask you to be gentle with yourself? Be a warrior, but a gentle one. Go to the quiet and listen. Go to the center of your being, to the sacred silence and stillness, and be in the present moment, free from the past and the future. Experience oneness. See yourself in others. Find peace within yourself and bring it out. Be a gentle warrior. You can do it. Do it, gently.
Go forth and bless the world with your gentle and compassionate heart.
Namaste. ~ Piero
May 2. Good morning! Today is another beautiful day in this beautiful planet, isn’t it? Let us be grateful for this wonderful garden and amazing playground that was given to us.
Today is a good day to be awestruck by the Magic, the Mystery, and the Miracles. Today is a good day to go to that place of stillness where all thinking subsides. Immerse yourself in the silence, and absorb all the peace that surrounds you. Listen. Listen. Listen. What are you hearing? What are you learning? Can you feel the love, the big one? We are here to listen, to learn, to love, to laugh, to live a good life, and to leave a legacy. So, listen a lot, learn a lot, love a lot, laugh a lot, live a good life, and leave a legacy, a good one. Here you have it: the recipe for a great life. Now, go forth and make it happen! You can do it. Just do it! Namaste. ~ Piero
May 3. Good morning! Today is another beautiful day in Paradise, isn’t it? Look around with the eyes of the heart and see beauty in you and all around you. Give thanks and be happy.
Today is a good day to practice not letting anxiety take hold of you. When you realize that you are confused and overwhelmed with the many things you have to do, pause and bring your awareness to your breathing. Take some time to plan your day and decide what you are going to do today. Now, visualize a very productive and satisfactory day: see yourself accomplishing what you set yourself out to do. Focus. Do one thing at a time and find joy in what you are doing. Focus. Don’t let your mind wander. Be here, now. Be gentle with yourself. Now, go forth and have a joyous day. You can do it. Just do it! Namaste. ~ Piero
May 4. Good morning! Today is another beautiful day in Heaven, isn’t it? Let us take in all the beauty that surrounds us. Let us be grateful and happy.
Today is a good day to practice suspending judgment, so try to go through your day with minimum criticism. As much as possible, try to curb your judgments. Resist the impulse to constantly react to your likes and dislikes. Avoid people who are always condemning others. Stay away from TV commentators who are constantly criticizing, disapproving, and passing verdict. Pause and look within your own self: are you one of those who is constantly looking for what is wrong, and, in your mind, pronouncing others to be guilty, and sentencing them to punishment? If so, take some time off today. Be mindful of what you are thinking and feeling. Control your likes and dislikes, your approval and disapproval. Suspend your reaction, criticism, judgment, and condemnation. Just for today, let it be, and see how much better you will feel. You can do. Just do it! Namaste. ~ Piero
May 5. Good morning! Today is another beautiful day in Paradise, isn’t it? Look around with the eyes of the heart and see the Magic, the Mystery, and Miracles. So much to be thankful for, right?
Today is a good day to practice letting go. So, today, when you feel the urge to react, take a deep breath and let go. Recognize that the need to defend and attack, the need to fight, the need to prove that you are right, they all stem from the ego. You don’t need to engage in any battle. Let go. Go to the center of your being, to that place of stillness beyond the thinking mind, and get in touch with your true nature. Filled with peace, breathe deeply, and say to yourself, “I know who I am. I don’t need to prove anything to anyone. I may be misinterpreted and misunderstood, but I know what I uphold to be true. I know who I am and what moves me. I know that my intentions are pure. I have peace in my heart. I recognize that what others may choose to see in me and think of me is beyond my control. I embrace them with my peace, and let go.” Be gentle with yourself and with others. That’s all, and it’s enough. Namaste. ~ Piero
May 6. Good morning! Today is another beautiful day in Paradise, isn’t it? Look around and absorb all the blessings.
Today is a good day to practice two of the Reiki precepts: “Just for today, I will be grateful. Just for today, I will not worry.”
You may have too much in your head right now. Maybe, you are worrying too much. I can understand. I would love to give some advice, but I think you are flowing beautifully with the stream. Your life is a beautiful adventure: it is your Hero’s Journey. Can you look at the events you considered negative, and see them as positive life occurrences that are propelling you forward?
Remember that this is the adventure of our lives: to go out looking for the treasure, only to find it when we return to the place where our journeys began. The journey begins within our own selves. Remember that wherever you are, there is your home. You don’t need to go anywhere. You have arrived already. I am talking about the relationship between you with yourself.
For now, I want you to consider that if the present moment is all that there is, then you don’t have to go anywhere; you have arrived already.
Practice mindfulness. Be here, now. Don’t let you mind wander too much. Planning is important and necessary, but you should not spend your time worrying. Accept that uncertainty is part of life. You can control the effort, not the outcome. Practice to be in the Here-Now. This is what will bring you peace and reveal the answers. Meditate. Do the activities that put in “in the zone, in the flow,” whatever they may be.
There is a peace that is difficult to describe when we go to the place of stillness beyond the thinking mind. There is where we encounter a loving silence beyond the noise of the mental chatter. That’s where we experience a sense of connection with the One that removes all fear. Go there often, and you will begin to see with the eyes of the heart. You will see yourself in all your glory! Look at the flowers in the field and the birds in the sky; they don’t worry, but they exist in full glory! Look around and see the Magic, the Mystery, and the Miracles that surround you. Fill yourself up with unshakable trust and confidence in the Divine Intelligence, and throw your worries away.
I see you as a special person. You are wonderful already. You are a fantastic manifestation of the Great Universal Force already. Be that now! Don’t wait for anything in the future. Just live as if you have arrived already. In all truth, you already have all that fantastic you in you. You are already allowing the wonderful being that you are to show up in this world. Be who you already are. Be the wonderful you that you already are. You touch many lives in a positive way. Realize that you inspire many people. Continue to be an example to others. Live your life with great courage. Have faith and hope. Trust that all is good already, and give thanks. Be confident that more of what is good is coming to you.
Be the one that only you can be. There isn’t another you, nor there will ever be another you. You are the one and only you throughout all times, past and future. Shine! Just claim your special place in this world now, and bless the world with your magnificent presence! You are special, magnificent, wonderful, fantastic! Accept that, live that!
For now, make it your priority to enjoy the present moment. Welcome everything that life is bringing you. Be grateful for everything and give thanks for the extraordinary life you have. Know that you are loved and that there’s nothing to worry about. Believe that great, miraculous, unexpected blessings are coming your way.
I send you love and peace. Remember… You are a child of the Universe and nothing bad will ever happen to you. Namaste. ~ Piero
May 7. Good morning! Today is another beautiful day in Paradise, isn’t it? Look around and see all the beauty that surrounds you. Pause and breathe peacefully. Can you see the Magic, the Mystery, and the Miracles? Aren’t we blessed? Let us give thanks and be happy!
Today is a good day to practice thinking about the future while being in the Here-Now. Planning is good and necessary, but realize that there is a difference between planning and worrying.
Before thinking about the future, it is always good to pause and check your emotions. How are you feeling? Are you feeling strong and full of courage, or are you feeling weak and afraid? If so, go first to that place of peace where you feel your power and the abundance of the Universe, and ground yourself in the soil of this place of plenty. Only then start planning. Don’t make decisions about your future if you are immersed in fear, affliction, or anxiety. Are you trying to escape from something? What are you running from? Don’t make plans for your future if you are feeling afraid and weak. Thoughts of scarcity and lack will not help you. Doubt will not help you either. Put your mind on all the good that is going to happen and not on the bad that might happen.
The best thing you can do for your future is to take good care of yourself now, and do what is necessary to feel great now. Remember… Life is a succession of present moments and the only moment that really exists is this one. So make this moment a special one.
Begin your planning by making an inventory of the much you already have accomplished, and give thanks. Be grateful for your life, for who you are, and what you have, instead of focusing on what you don’t have. Focus more on what is good and not so much on what you consider to be bad in your life. Make the goal of your planning to enhance what is right instead of trying to fix what is wrong. Finally, focus more on giving and less on getting; this simple shift in your focus will make everything better. There is a difference when our minds are focused on giving instead of getting. The focus on giving makes us feel strong, while the focus on getting makes us feel weak.
Once you have decided what you want, put yourself in motion. Be bold. Begin to implement your plan. Proceed with confidence, hope and faith in a better tomorrow. Your courage to pursue your dreams, and your moving toward them, will unleashed the magic, the mystery, and the miracles that will help you achieve what you desire.
Do it. Just do it!
Namaste. ~ Piero
