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

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

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

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

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

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

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
