I hope you enjoy reading this collection of daily reflections. Namaste. ~ Piero

Good morning!

Today is another beautiful day in Paradise, isn’t it? The Universe is immense, and here we are, in the middle of all this Magic, Mystery and Miracles.

Be amazed. Be grateful. Be happy.

Today is a good day to reflect and understand the benefits of making others happy.

When we interact with happy people, the quality of our life enhances. The happiness of others augments our happiness. If you interact with somebody who interacts with someone who is happy, the person you interact with will be happier for that relationship, and this will increase your happiness. So, the happiness of people you don’t even know affects your happiness. Even the happiness of your current enemies enhances our happiness.

So, show your most grateful and happy self to the world. Shower the people you meet with attention, care and happiness. Be known as ‘the happy one.’ Be grateful and happy, and make it your goal to make others happy.

Nothing compares with the feeling of having a positive effect on others. Nothing is more rewarding. Find ways to free others from their fears and concerns. Make them happier, and they will be grateful, kind and generous with you always. Make them happy, and you will be happier.

Just do it!

Namaste. ~ Piero

Good morning!

Today is another beautiful day in Paradise, isn’t it? Look around and see all the beauty that surrounds you. It’s amazing, isn’t it?

Today is a good day to be grateful and happy in the here and now.

Go to your place of peace, and say to yourself, “Just for today, I will be grateful.”

Here are some positive affirmations that may help you enhance your gratitude and happiness:

“My life is perfect right now; nothing is lacking. I don’t have to wait for my life to be different in order to be happy. I don’t need to reach a different condition, or acquire other things, for life to be better, for it to be right.”

“My life is perfect right now; nothing is lacking. I don’t have to wait for some time in the future when I imagine I will be living my ideal life. I don’t need to postpone the enjoyment of my life. I am enjoying the beautiful life I have.”

“My life is already perfect; nothing is lacking. I am living a wonderful life, right here, right now. I don’t need to ask for anything. I don’t need to seek anything. I appreciate the much I already have, and am in awe with all the wonderful gifts that life has given me. Life is a divine gift, and I thank the Divine for it. Life is full of Magic, Mystery and Miracles, and I am in awe with it. I give thanks for the life I have. I am amazed, grateful and happy. I am happy, content and satisfied.”

May this day be a day of thanksgiving.

Give thanks, and enhance the quality of your life.

Just do it!

Namaste. ~ Piero

Good morning!

Today is another beautiful day in Paradise, isn’t it? Look around with the eyes of the heart and see all the Magic, Mystery and Miracles.

Be amazed. Be grateful. Be happy.

Today is a good day to love yourself, and to express this love through positive affirmations.

Go to your place of peace. Immerse yourself in the quiet and stillness, and feel yourself absorbing serenity through all pores of your skin. When you sense that you are full of optimism, say to yourself,

“I radiate health, vitality, strength and power. I am full of vibrant energy. I am healthy and happy.”

“I take good care of my body, carefully choosing what I ingest. I nourish my body with food that heals, protects, and purifies me. My digestive system processes the powerful food I eat easily, efficiently and effortlessly. The vibrant nutrients I ingest make me strong, resilient and powerful. I am healthy and happy.”

“My body, in all its infinite wisdom, regulates itself. My body is a self-healing organism; it heals itself. I manifest my ideal and healthiest body naturally and easily. I am full of life, full of strength, full of vitality. I feel stronger and healthier than ever before. I love my body and my body loves me. I am healed, protected and purified. I am healthy and happy.”

Just say it!

Be gentle with yourself.

Namaste. ~ Piero

Good morning!

Today is another beautiful day in Paradise, isn’t it? Look around with the eyes of the heart and see all the Magic, Mystery and Miracles.

Be amazed. Be grateful for where you are and for all you have. Yes, be excited for all the other good things that are coming your way, but stop the frantic chase of desires. Stop chasing things and situations in the future. Stop postponing the enjoyment of life. Put your attention on this present moment, and feel that this moment is enough. There isn’t anything missing. This moment is full of Magic, Mystery and Miracles. This moment is real. This moment is your life, and this life is more than enough.

Be here. Be now.

Just be!

Namaste. ~ Piero

Good morning!

Today is another beautiful day in Paradise, isn’t it? Look around with the eyes of the heart and see all the Magic, Mystery and Miracles.

Be amazed. Be grateful. Be happy.

Go to your place of peace. Immerse yourself in the quiet and stillness, and rest in awareness.

Now, say to yourself, “I am safe, protected and loved. I am grateful and free from all fear. I am living the life I am meant to live. I am doing what I was brought here to do. I am giving my best contributions to the world. The Universe helps me in everything I do, and I achieve any goal I want easily. I am living the life of my dreams.”

Just say it! Believe it!

Namaste. ~ Piero

Good morning!

Today is another beautiful day in Paradise, isn’t it? Let us pause and see all the beauty that exists in this world. Let us take time to acknowledge all the Magic, Mystery and Miracles that surround us. Let us allow ourselves to be awestruck by wonder, and be transported to that place of serenity where all problems and conflicts lose the urgency and importance we attributed to them. Let us be amazed, grateful and happy.

Today is a good day to bring back to our lives some of those things that make life worth living.

Today is a good day to bring back Passion, Love, Friendship, Creativity, Courage, Adventure and Exploration.

Go to your place of peace, and ask, “What am I passionate about? What do I love? If life is a journey, who do I want my companions on this journey to be? Who are the individuals that bring out the best that exists within me? What are the things that I want to do in life that I haven’t done yet?”

Pursue what you are passionate about. Go do what you love. Explore. Be adventurous. Be courageous. Embrace the new. Be creative. Express yourself. Surround yourself with friends that support you, and bring out the best in you.

Live. Love. Learn. Laugh. Leave a legacy.

Namaste. ~ Piero

Good morning!

Today is another beautiful day in Paradise, isn’t it?

The sun came up again and is illuminating our planet. All celestial bodies continue to move through the Infinite Cosmos, and here we are, living in the middle of all this Magic, Mystery and Miracles. It is incredible, isn’t it?

Be amazed. Be grateful. Be happy.

Today is a good day to rest in the knowing that we are safe.

Acknowledge all the many things the Universe has given you. Recognize how blessed you are, and take the time to express love and gratitude for all the gifts that were given to you.

Dwell in all that is good in your life, and feel that you are cared for, and that there is no reason to be afraid. Rest in the knowing that you are supported, and that the Universe will continue to take care of you, as it has always done. Rest in the knowing that you are loved.

Be not afraid. Be at peace. Be grateful.

Harness all this peaceful energy, and with a serene confidence put yourself in motion to make your life even better.

Just do it!

Namaste. ~ Piero

All Things Bright and Beautiful

If you read my daily reflection, you may be familiar with this line: “Look around with the eyes of the heart, and see all the Magic, Mystery and Miracles that surround us. Be amazed. Be grateful. Be happy.”

This morning, I got acquainted with a hymn that speaks to that, and encourages us to appreciate the beauty of our planet.

///

All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful,
The Good Mother made them all.

Each little flower that opens,
Each little bird that sings,
She made their glowing colors,
She made their tiny wings.

All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful,
The Loving Mother made them all.

The purple headed mountain,
The river running by,
The sunset and the morning,
That brightens up the sky;−

All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful,
The Caring Mother made them all.

The cold wind in the winter,
The pleasant summer sun,
The ripe fruits in the garden,−
She made them every one:

All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful,
The Good Mother made them all.

The tall trees in the greenwood,
The meadows where we play,
The rushes by the water,
We gather every day;−

All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful,
The Loving Mother made them all.

She gave us eyes to see them,
And lips that we might tell,
How great is the Divine Presence,
Who has made all things well.

All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful,
The One Creator made them all.

///

“All Things Bright and Beautiful” is an Anglican hymn, also popular with other Christian denominations. The original words are by Cecil Frances Alexander and were first published in 1848 in her Hymns for Little Children. The hymn has been modified form its original version throughout the years.

Daily Reflections – Week 28

I hope you enjoy reading these seven reflections. Namaste. ~ Piero

July 10

July 10

Good morning!

Today is another beautiful day in Paradise, isn’t it? Look around and see all the wonder that surrounds you.

Be amazed. Be grateful. Be happy.

Today is a good day to expel from our lives our obsession with acquiring and achieving, and to liberate ourselves from all the tensions, all the stresses, and all the fears that this obsession creates.

Today is a good day to experience freedom, lightness and serenity.

Today is a good day to recognize that we don’t need a lot.

Today is a good day to reduce the frantic speed we move through life, and take time to appreciate the glorious wonder and wholeness in the Here-Now.

Let us, today, do away with complexity, strife and hurriedness, and live simpler, worry-free, slow-paced lives that allow us to take time to appreciate the sheer wonder of it all.

If we are able to pay attention to whatever is happening in the present moment, we will see miracles, and we will be in awe. And if we do this at all moments of our lives, moment after moment, we will find ourselves living in the Land of Magic, Mystery and Miracles.

Look around with the intention to see miracles right here, right now, right where you are. Think about the vastness of the Universe, and the unknown forces that brought you to this time and space, to this very moment. Everyday life is glorious. Every moment is full of miracles.

Wake up, open your eyes, and see.

Pay attention. Be alert.

Slow down and simplify.

Just do it!

Namaste. ~ Piero

Good morning!

Today’s another beautiful day in Paradise, isn’t it? Look around. Can you feel yourself immersed in beauty? Pause for a moment and listen. Can you hear the humming sound of silence? Can you feel yourself in the presence of a solemn and dignified reality that demands reverence? Can you feel yourself as a manifestation of the Magic, the Mystery and the Miracles?

Be amazed. Be grateful. Be happy.

Today is a good day to reflect on desires, and free ourselves from those never-ending cravings that consume us.

Our obsession with acquiring and achieving impedes us from feeling happy, content and satisfied. We are constantly modifying the size of the cup of our wants and needs, always making it bigger and bigger, and, by doing so, never allowing it to fill up. We go through life feeling an inner void, feeling that something is missing, feeling that we need more things to experience contentment and happiness.

Well, what if we could control our cravings? What if we could make the cups of our wants smaller? Why don’t you try it? Can you sense that if you make it smaller, not only it is now full, but overflowing? Can you feel how much you already have, and how blessed you are? Doesn’t this produce an amazing feeling?

Today, don’t ask anything of others and of yourself. Relax and enjoy the simple things in life. Find plenty of beauty, joy, health and wealth in your life, here, now. Free yourself from the habit of demanding more. Rejoice with the much you already have. Simplify your life. Go help those who do not have as much as you, and don’t be surprised if you find, among them, some whose cups are overflowing.

Today is s good day to replace greed with generosity, anger with compassion, and ignorance with wisdom.

Namaste. ~ Piero

July 12

July 12

Good morning!

Today is another beautiful day in Paradise, isn’t it? Look around with the eyes of the heart and see all the Magic, the Mystery and the Miracles that surround you. Be amazed. Acknowledge the much life has given you. Be grateful. Be happy.

Today is a good day to remember who you really are, and what you were brought here to do. Today is a good day to question if you are living the life you are meant to live.

Go to the center of your being, to your place of peace, and ask yourself, “Is this the life I should be living? Am I being who I am meant to be? Am I and doing what I am meant to do? Am I giving expression to what is most important for me? What do I have to do to express what is inside of me? What do I have to do to have a more wholesome, meaningful and satisfying life? What do I have to do to have a more enjoyable, less stressful, more fulfilling life?”

The answers may indicate that you have to let go of a life that has already played itself out and does not serve you anymore. The Voice of the Universe may be telling you that you need to change, and that in order for you to be able to follow your bliss you have to create a new life: a less complex, more focused, simpler life.

Today is a good day to begin the process of getting rid of all those things that distract you, all those things that slow you down, all those things that do not help you move your main mission in life ahead.

Today is a good day to simplify your life.

Today is a good day to start living a more mindful and elegant life.

Today is the first day of the rest of your life, the first day of your new life. Today is the day!

Focus on the main things and get rid of the rest. Make life simpler. Time is short.

Just do it!

Namaste. ~ Piero

July 13

Good morning!

Today is another beautiful day in Paradise, isn’t it? Let the sun warm your skin, and let the breeze refresh it. Can you feel it? This is an amazing world, isn’t it? Listen to the humming sound of silence. See the shadows and the light. See the reflections of light on the surface of the water. See the leaves dancing with the wind. Wake up, and see all the Magic, Mystery and Miracles that surround all of us, all the time. Be amazed. Be grateful. Be happy.

Today is a good day to develop a calm acceptance of what is.

All things change. Nothing stays the same. All things decay. Nothing lasts forever. All thing pass away. Nothing is permanent. That is the natural process.

Accept that all things must pass, and use this awareness for your awakening. Let this truth calmly sink in and bring you peace.

Life is a beautiful adventure.

Be amazed. Be grateful. Be happy.

Namaste. ~ Piero

July 14

July 14

Good morning!

Today is another beautiful day in Paradise, isn’t it? Look around and see Magic, Mystery and Miracles all around you. Be amazed. Be grateful. Be happy.

Today is s good day to remember that all change comes from within.

Violence in the world is a reflection of violence in the mind. Peace in the world is a reflection of peaceful minds. Harmony manifests harmony, and beauty creates more beauty.

We have the power to bring beauty, harmony and peace to our lives. Change occurs when we change. Our changed hearts change our families, our communities, our nations. The entire world changes when we change.

Be the peace you want to see in the world. Be the harmony you want to see in the world. Be the beauty you want to see in the world. Be the change you want to see in the world.

Just be it! You have the power.

Namaste. ~ Piero

July 15

July 15

Good morning!

Today is another beautiful day in Paradise, isn’t it?

Aren’t you amazed for all the Magic, Mystery and Miracles in your life? Aren’t you grateful for everything life has given you, for all the blessings you have received? Aren’t you happy?

Be amazed. Be grateful. Be happy.

Today is s good day to deal with the situation that you find yourself in.

We may want life to be different but the reality is that life is what it is, and how we deal with “what is” is what makes all the difference. Don’t waste too much time complaining, or reminiscing about how good life was in the past. Don’t waste too much time wishing life to be different, and telling others how life ought to be. Deal with life as it presents itself to you, and make the best of it. Make the best of this very moment, right here, right now.

And if yours is a life that has played itself out and does not serve you anymore, leave it. Pack a few things, and with a grateful heart, say goodbye and wish well to all you are leaving behind. Get on the road that will take you to your new, more authentic, happier life.

Be courageous and be brave.

You can do it.

Just do it! Now!

Namaste. ~ Piero

July 16

July 16

Good morning!

Today is another beautiful day in Paradise, isn’t it? Look around with the eyes of the heart and see the wonders that surround you.

Be amazed. Be grateful. Be happy.

Today is a good day to be not afraid.

Go to your place of peace and ask yourself, “Who am I?” Stay there — exceedingly awake, aware and alert — and wait for the answers to come.

Then, after several minutes, ask yourself, “Who is this ‘I’ who is asking the question, ‘Who am I?'” Just stay there — awake, aware and alert — and allow the answers to come to you.

Then, when you feel the time is right, ask, “What is that ‘I’ — the one who is asking ‘Who am I?’ — here to do?” Just ask the question, and the answer will inevitably come to you.

The answers to all these questions will bring you the understanding that you are “more,” and this deep knowing will dissolve all fear.

May you have a peaceful day.

May you go through this day without worries.

May you, today, be blessed with the understanding that you are one with all.

May you be blessed with that trust in the Divine that gives you the knowing that everything is and will always be OK.

May you be blessed with that peace that surpasses all understanding.

Be not afraid.

Be not afraid.

Be not afraid.

Namaste. ~ Piero

Daily Reflections – Week 27

I hope you enjoy reading these seven reflections. Namaste. ~ Piero

July 3

July 3

Good morning!

Today is another beautiful day in Paradise, isn’t it?

Today is a good day to practice acceptance and gratitude.

Take a moment to meditate. Find a quiet place, close your eyes, and observe your breathing. Just observe it. Every time you inhale, feel that you are breathing in peace and relaxation, and every time you exhale, feel that you are breathing out all tension and stress. It feels good, doesn’t it? Can you feel peace, serenity, and joy expanding inside of you? Smile!

Now, that you feel centered and calm, say to yourself…

Today, I will not want anything. I will not want to be different. I will not want to be who I am not. I will accept myself just as I am.

Today, I will bask in the realization that I am a manifestation of the Eternal Life Energy. I will feel how unique, wonderful, and magnificent I am.

Today, I will relax and accept myself completely. I will feel that I don’t have to do anything because I already am whole, perfect and complete.

Today, I will feel that I don’t have to get anywhere else because where I am, wherever it may be, is my home.

Today I will not want what I don’t have, but will rejoice with what I have.

Today, I will not want my life to be different, I will not want my situation to be different, I will not want my day to be different, I will not want others to be different. I will be grateful for all that was, is, and will be.

Today, I will accept whatever and whoever comes to me as a gift that I should pay attention to and be grateful for. I will feel that every encounter is sacred, and everything is perfect just as it is.

Today I will feel happy, content and satisfied.

Namaste. ~ Piero

July 4

July 4

Good morning!

Today is another beautiful day in Paradise, isn’t it? Can you look with the eyes of the heart and see the Divine Presence everywhere?

Today is a good day to reflect about Connection, Communication and Communion with the Divine.

Please, understand that rituals and dogmas are just means to an end. And what is the end? The end is a deep personal transformation. What good there is in complying with all the rules and regulations of your religious tradition if this does not transform you in a more compassionate, generous, patient and kind human being? What good there is in knowing all sacred texts of your religion if you still are a selfish, fearful, judgmental and angry human being? Belief alone is not enough. Observance of rituals without inner change is not enough. We need more than belief and rituals. What we need is that pure Connection, Communication and Communion with God. This is what transforms us.

Today, feel yourself infused by God. Feel the Divine Presence within you, and allow it to work in you and through you. Surrender to the Mighty Force,  and allow it to better your thoughts, words and actions.

Now that God is in you, and you are in God, kindness and love is your religion.

Namaste. ~ Piero

July 5

July 5

Good morning!

Today is another beautiful day in Paradise, isn’t it? Bring your attention to this present moment. Open your eyes, and see. Can you see what you could not see anymore? Can you see now what, with time, became invisible to you? Can you see all the Magic, Mystery and Miracles around you? It is amazing, isn’t it? Be grateful. Be happy.

Today is a good day to practice seeing.

Understand how seeing allows you to Connect, Communicate and Commune with God. Go out, explore, and look at everything with extreme attention. Contemplate in silence, remaining quiet and still, and paying extreme attention to what is happening in the present. Soon, you will catch yourself looking inward from the outside, as an observer of your own self. This is an important moment, a moment of awakening and enlightenment, a moment when you look with your eyes but see with your heart. This is the moment that fulfills the real purpose of the journey. Now, welcome and consent God’s presence and action in your life.

Live mindfully!

You can do it. Just do it!

Namaste. ~ Piero

July 6

Good morning!

Today is another beautiful day in Paradise, isn’t it? Celestial bodies continue their dance in the skies, and here we are, living on top of one. Isn’t this magical, mysterious and miraculous? Be amazed. Be grateful. Be happy.

Today is a good day to practice gratitude. Pause and go to your place of peace. Close your eyes and be aware; aware of the sounds, aware of your breathing, aware of the sensations in your body, aware of your moods, aware of your thoughts. Give yourself the gift of these restful moments. Be gentle with yourself. Don’t rush. Just rest.

After your meditation, say to yourself, “Today, I will not want what I don’t have without first making an inventory of what I already have. I will give my time, attention and affection to all I have. Just for today, I will recognize how fortunate I am for all the wonderful gifts that life has given me, and be grateful. Just for today, I will be happy, content and satisfied.”

To live in a constant state of wanting is to live like a slave.

Free yourself!

Just do it!

Namaste. ~ Piero

July 7

July 7

Good morning!

Today is another beautiful day in Paradise, isn’t it?

Allow the beauty, the harmony and the perfection of the Universe to give themselves to you. Accept these gifts that are given freely to you. Realize that all these wonderful and priceless presents are available to you whenever you want them, at all moments, all the time.

Breathe deeply. Fell awake, aware, alert and alive. Feel a sense of pure joy. Smile!

Pain is inevitable, but suffering is optional. There is pain in life, but joy is everywhere. Joy is the ground of being, is the stuff we are made of. Joy is where we exist. Joy is what we find when we dig and remove the pain, the fear, the egoism, and all the dirt we have covered it with. We have to learn to find joy beyond the pain. That’s why learning and practicing to see the Magic, the Mystery and the Miracles is so important. Practice. Pay attention! Be alert! Look with the eyes, and see with the heart. And by doing so, you will find joy, and live in it.

Be confident! Smile!

Just do it!

Namaste. ~ Piero

July 8

July 8

Good morning! Today is another beautiful day in Paradise, isn’t it?

Look around with the eyes of the heart and see the beauty that surrounds you. It is amazing, isn’t it? Be amazed. Be grateful. Be happy.

Today is a good day to reflect about change.

Go to your place of serenity, and ask yourself, “Who do I want to be? What do I want to do?” Remember who you really are, and what you were brought here to do. Ask yourself, “What is necessary for me to be who I am meant to be, and do what I am meant to do?”

It’s not easy to change. It’s not easy to break free from old habits. It’s not easy to let go of an old life that has played itself out and does not serve us anymore. Even though we want to, we keep repeating the same routines over and over again.

Here are some some things that will help you:

1 – Have clarity about who you are, and who you are meant to be.

2 – Develop a clear view of what you are doing now, and what you should be doing in order to give your unique contributions to make the world a better place.

3 – Develop a plan and take action. Everyday, do something that moves you toward your goals. Begin with small steps, but do something everyday.

4 – Be aware of your thoughts, moods, words and actions. Moment by moment, let go of the old, and embrace the new. Live mindfully.

5 – Turn off the automatic pilot, and take charge of flying this plane to where you want it to go.

Be courageous. Be bold. Be brave.

You can do it.

Just do it!

Namaste. ~ Piero

July 9

Good morning!

Today is another beautiful day in Paradise, isn’t it? Look around with the eyes of the heart, and see the beauty that surrounds you. There is Magic, Mystery and Miracles everywhere, right? Be amazed. Be grateful. Be happy.

Today is a good day to face your fears. I am referring to those things you have been postponing, those things you don’t want to face, those things you have pushed away. Your attempts to ignore them didn’t work, did they? Even though you tried to bury them away, they keep resurfacing, don’t they? And every time they do, they take away your peace, don’t they?

Today is the day to deal with them, and, by doing so, set yourself free.

Fear enslaves you. Fear consumes your life. Not dealing with a little problem turns it into an imaginary monster that although partially hidden, in reality haunts you all the time.

Set yourself free!

Be courageous. Be brave.

Face your fears, and be not surprised if what you thought was a mighty, mean and angry dragon, in reality is a small, sweet and docile kitten.

Today, do what you don’t want to do, but know you have to.

Just do it!

Today is the day!

Namaste. ~ Piero

In the struggle for righteousness man has cosmic companionship

Where is your heart? Where is your commitment?

Are you in despair with the lack of justice in the world? Are you feeling that the oppression and exploitation will never end? Are you feeling that we are destined to be violent, and that nonviolence doesn’t stand a chance? Are you beginning to feel that social justice will never prevail? Are you starting to feel that it is too late to save the planet? Are you feeling that the forces we face are too powerful, and that the possibility of a dignified and thriving life for all in a healthy, well-protected planet is impossible? Are you losing hope?

If so, let these reflections of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. inspire, uplift, and motivate you.

We are not alone. We are not alone. We are not alone.

“I am convinced that the universe is under the control of a loving purpose and that in the struggle for righteousness man has cosmic companionship.”

“In recent months I have also become more and more convinced of the reality of a personal God. True, I have always believed in the personality of God. But in past years the idea of a personal God was little more than a metaphysical category which I found theologically and philosophically satisfying. Now it is a living reality that has been validated in the experiences of everyday life.”

“Perhaps the suffering, frustration and agonizing moments which I have had to undergo occasionally as a result of my involvement in a difficult struggle have drawn me closer to God. Whatever the cause, God has been profoundly real to me in recent months.”

“In the midst of outer dangers I have felt an inner calm and known resources of strength that only God could give. In many instances I have felt the power of God transforming the fatigue of despair into the buoyancy of hope. I am convinced that the universe is under the control of a loving purpose and that in the struggle for righteousness man has cosmic companionship.”

Daily Reflections – Week 26

June 26

June 26

Good morning!

Today is another beautiful day in Paradise, isn’t it? Look around and see all the Magic, Mystery, and Miracles. Wonderful, isn’t it? Realize how blessed you are, and give thanks. Be grateful. Be grateful. Be grateful.

Today is a good day to reflect on what produces change of behavior.

Knowledge does not. You may know what is good and what is bad, but the knowledge alone does not necessarily makes you change your behavior. Only a personal insight followed by deep reflection can initiate the process of change. Inner personal transformation precedes external changes. From this inner insight, new and better lives can begin. You can commit to do what you know must be done for you be the best that you can be.

Practice to listen to your inner voice. Meditate. Practice mindfulness. Be mindful of your thoughts and emotions. Learn to acknowledge and let go of what may be disturbing your peace. Even better: learn to detect at the onset what may disturb your peace, so you can take action before the disturbance occurs. Practice! Practice! Practice! Do a little bit everyday. Practice the JFT technique; make a ‘Just For Today’ commitment, keep it, and see your life improve.

Be gentle with yourself.

You can do it. Just do it!

Namaste. ~ Piero

Good morning!

Today is another beautiful day in Paradise, isn’t it? Close your eyes. Can you hear the silence? There is Magic, Mystery, and Miracles all around you, can you feel it? Feel blessed, and be grateful.

Today is a good day to experience freedom, freshness, and focus. Today is a good day to feel free from concerns, to feel fresh and full of vitality and vigor, and extremely focused and productive.

Begin your day by visiting your place of silence, quiet, and peace. Feel peaceful, relaxed, and safe. Observe the rhythm of your breathing. Slow down and feel calmer and calmer. Breathe all preoccupation, tension, and stress out. Breathe peace and ease in. Feel completely relaxed and free from worries. As you breathe, feel all good things coming to you, and all bad things moving away from you, as waves coming to the shore; in and out, back and forth. Feel serenity, joy, ease, and lightness moving through your body and your mind, making you feel better and better. Feel more and more relaxed and refreshed, calmly releasing everything that does not serve you. Now feel abundance flowing into your life and blessing you. Accept this gift. Feel how good it feels to live with this constant flow of all that is good in your life. See yourself living your ideal life. Allow abundance to bless you. Invite overflowing fullness into your life. Feel confident, knowing that all that is good flows effortlessly to and through you. Feel happy, content, and satisfied. Feel refreshed and relaxed. Feel free, fresh and focused.

Get joy out of your work today. Everything you do today, do it in a focused manner. Put your attention in what you are doing. Do everything slowly and quietly. Extract joy from the doing.

Go on and have a wonderful day. Bless everyone you meet with gifts of freedom, freshness, and focus. Your positive attitude, your optimism, your care for what you do, the attention you give to others, these are all gifts to the world. You are special! You are a gift to the world!

Thank you for being the marvelous person you are. I thank you for making my world better.

Namaste. ~ Piero

Just do it, and enjoy a better life.

Good morning!

Today is another beautiful day in Paradise, isn’t it?

Look around. I’m serious. Look around. Wait a minute! Don’t jump ahead. I insist. Pause, and look around. What do you see?

Be aware of your surroundings. Be aware of where you are. Be aware of what you are doing. Be aware of who you are. Be aware of the Here-Now. Be aware.

Look around and see all the Magic, all the Mystery, and all the Miracles that surround you. Be aware and acknowledge the Divine Presence that is everywhere.

Stay in the Here-Now. Find all that you want in this moment. This moment is complete. This moment is enough in itself. Put an end to the habit of being here physically, but being somewhere else mentally. Stop wanting the next thing. Stop wanting more.

Look. Listen. Taste. Smell. Touch. Feel. Be aware of this present moment. Be here, now. Put your attention in what you are doing. Walk with attention. Drive with attention. Eat with attention. Read with attention.

Look. See. What are the things that you don’t see anymore? What are the sounds you don’t hear anymore? What are you noticing now, that you haven’t noticed in a long while?

Now, pause and ask yourself, “Can I be the observer of my inner state?” Today is a good day to practice self-awareness. Be the one who watches, the one who notices, the one who observes.

Be aware. Just be!

Namaste. ~ Piero

Good morning!

Today is another beautiful day in Paradise, isn’t it?

Take a moment to think about the good things in your life, and be grateful for all things, even the most ordinary ones. Give thanks for everything, and don’t complain about anything. Rejoice. Be happy.

Today is a good day to reflect about life. Think about the vastness of the Universe. Think about birth and death, and the never-ending cycle of transmutation. Be aware of the Divine Energy that is present in all things. Look with the eyes of the heart and see who you are beyond your body and your story. Remove the obstacles within you: your sense of guilt, your anger, your lack of authenticity. Forgive yourself, love yourself, and allow the Life Force Energy to flow freely and manifest wonders in this world through you.

Today is a good day to practice being aware of your thoughts and emotions. Meditate, and live mindfully. Practice to observe what you are thinking and feeling.

Today is a good day to learn to be more present, by observing stillness and presence. Take time to observe Nature. Nature is always present, always in the here-now, and teaches us to simply be.

Today is a good day to let go of a life that has played itself out and does not serve you anymore.

Today is a good day to accept the call to adventure and follow your bliss.

Today is a good day to remember who you are and what you were brought here to do. Put energy in being your best self, and in giving your greatest contribution to the world.

Today is a good day to take action to simplify your life, so you can focus on living, loving, learning, laughing, and leaving a legacy.

Today is the first day of the rest of your life, and it is s good day. Enjoy it! Make of it the best day ever!

Namaste. ~ Piero

Good morning!

Today is another beautiful day in paradise, isn’t it? Look around and see all the beauty that surrounds you. Be thankful. Be happy.

Today is a good day to practice attaining a clear mind.

Practice to observe what is going on in your mind. Do this not only during your times of meditation, but also during other times of the day as well. Just remember to pause and observe.

What is going on in your mind? Think of minds as machines that never stop creating thoughts. Without our focused awareness, those machines increase their operating speed creating more and more thoughts.

Imagine a large group of little and very agile monkeys in the forest. Imagine they moving in all directions, jumping from branch to branch, from tree to tree. Imagine that each little monkey is a thought of yours. You look at all this scene and all you see is agitation. All monkeys look pretty much the same, don’t they? But what happens when you stop, and look at one single monkey? Can you notice the particular features of that monkey? Does the monkey stop and look back at you? Do the other monkeys become intrigued and less active? Or maybe because you are paying attention to this one monkey, whatever the other monkeys may be doing becomes less important to you? Could that be?

The questions you should ask yourself are, “Am I aware of what I am thinking? What am I giving my attention to? What am I going to give my attention to?”

Choose your monkeys wisely.

Grow your capacity to be aware of what is going on in your mind. Practice and you will develop the ability to discern, focus, and make better choices. Practice and you will attain a clarity that will increase the quality of your life.

Discernment, focus, clarity, and control of the mind are yours.

Practice to observe. Just observe. Do it gently, and enjoy the process. Smile.

You can do it. Just do it!

Namaste. ~ Piero

Good morning!

Today is another amazing day in Paradise, isn’t it? Pause and absorb all the serenity that surrounds you. The enjoyment of your passage here on Earth is very much under your power; you can choose if you are going to notice beauty or ugliness during your days. If you predispose yourself to see beauty and good in all things, life will be immeasurably more pleasurable.

Today is a good day to remember who you really are, and what you were brought here — to this Earth — to do.

First of all, recognize that you are not your physical body; you are more than it. In fact, realize that you have occupied many physical forms during your life: a newborn baby, a toddler, a child, a teenager, an adult. You, like everybody and everything else, are in a process of constant physical transformation, and who you really are is that entity that observes the transformation, and exists independent of your physical form.

Your physical body is just a vehicle through which you give expression to who and what you really are. The measure of your success is given by your ability to express who you really are. The history of your journey on Earth is a mere collection of the successes and failures you had in expressing your true nature. So dare to follow your bliss; take the risk, and accept the call to do what you are being called to do.

And as you follow the journey to live who you really are, dare to be seen;
don’t play it small. Your contribution matters. Do it without worries; you are going to succeed some times and fail others, but that’s not important. You are going to learn and teach. And, most of all, you will be living your life, not someone else’s life, and that’s huge!

Just do it, and have a great time.

Namaste. ~ Piero
