Good morning!

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

Look up and look down. Look at the big and the small. See Magic, Mystery and Miracles everywhere. See all the beauty that surrounds you.

Be amazed! Be grateful! Be happy!

Today is a good day to reflect on what you can do to solve conflicts and bring about reconciliation and harmony.

Instead of looking for solutions out there, somewhere, let us look for them within our own selves. Instead of looking at others as the source of problems, let us first focus our attention on our own selves, and ask, “What am I doing? Do the things I do contribute to the solution, or do they exacerbate the problem? Am I reaching out, or am I keeping myself at a distance? What efforts am I making to get closer to other people? What efforts am I making to understand them? Do I engage in respectful conversations, or am I addicted to criticism and blame? Can I step inside their shoes? Can I see through their eyes and see how they see? Can I feel what they feel?”

When we point one finger at someone else, remember that there are three fingers pointing right back at us, while the thumb is usually pointing up, reminding us that we should move to a higher ground, where we are less emotionally charged, aggressive and violent, and where we are more sensitive, respectful and emphatic. This higher ground is a place where nonviolent communication exists, and where conflict resolution and reconciliation takes place.

Instead of initiating your phrases with “You” — and filling your speech with blame and accusations – strive to commence you phrases with “I,” sharing your feelings. People will listen to you, and you will be giving them a chance to understand. You will be educating them. But whenever you start with “You,” people immediately become defensive; they will not listen to what you have to say.

Instead of talking about “those people,” focus on your own self, and what you can do to bring more of Heaven to Earth. When you refer to “those people,” you are imagining a stereotype, a fantasy of your imagination. Strive to individualize. Focus on a real person in front of you. That person is the one you must try to understand, and the one you can help see as you see.

Just do it!

Namaste. ~ Piero

Good morning!

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

Look with the eyes of the body and see with the eyes of the soul. See Magic, Mystery and Miracles everywhere.

Be amazed! Be grateful! Be happy!

Today is a good day to grow personally and heal the wounds of the world.

Have you resigned yourself to live with your prejudices, and therefore live a confined, limited life, or, knowing that prejudices are learned, have you decided to unlearn them in order to expand your understanding and appreciation of life?

Are you isolating yourself in the safe and comfortable territory of your own tribe? Are you looking for and finding instances that reinforce your prejudices? Are you joining your fellow tribesmen in criticizing and condemning the members of the other tribes? Or are you venturing out to get to know those strangers personally?

Are you willing to be the one who initiates conversations that can create bonds and put an end to misunderstanding, separation, violence and aggression?

You must ask yourself, “What am I going to do? Am I going to spend my life by the sidelines, finding fault and complaining, or am I going to take the risk, and enter the court in order to give my contribution?”

So, today is a good day to engage in a committed practice of silence and solitude. Today, and every day, is a good day to meditate. Today, I invite you to go to your place of peace, listen to the voice of the Universe, and get to experience a sense of oneness. Get to know, with every fiber of your being, that we are all one. Get to know that we are, at the same time, human and divine, mortal and immortal, independent and interdependent, separated and connected, many and one. Realize that when we wound someone else, we are wounding our own selves, our loved ones, and the entire humanity, even the ones still to be born. Realize that violence is not the answer, and will never be. Violence only begets more violence, and that we know.

So, do not allow yourself to be seduced by the “us and them” ideologies of a world divided in tribes. We are more than the tribes we identify ourselves with. We, all of us, are human beings, and the similarities that unite us are much greater than the differences that separate us.

Find peace within yourself, and help others find peace within their own selves. Do the inner-work necessary to achieve a higher consciousness and experience oneness. Free yourself from the illusion of separateness and from the shackles of prejudice and hatred. Nurture what unites, not what divides. Practice gratitude. Practice mindfulness. Practice nonviolence in all you do: nonviolent communication and nonviolent conflict resolution. Extend yourself, reach out, get to know members of other tribes, learn about their tribes, teach about yours, make friends, expand your understanding, and enhance peace. Promote social justice in order to put an end to the structural violence – the oppression and exploitation of the powerless by the powerful — which causes the majority of the direct violence in the world. Do to others what you would like them to do to you, and don’t do to others what you wouldn’t want them to do to you. Practice optimism, and believe in a brighter future. Be kind and generous with everyone you meet. Be of service to others. Do what you like, and like what you do. Follow your bliss, and persevere in order to give your unique contributions to the world. Accomplish great things without ever forgetting to do all the small things along the way with great love. Strive to be the best that you can be, and never forget to help and support others so they too can be the best that they can be. Strive to feel good at all times, and make it a habit, at every moment, to try to feel better than you felt before. See all the beauty that surrounds you, and be amazed, grateful and happy. Enjoy the beauty of the Garden, and have fun in the Playground. Share your toys. And if you feel like doing it, give your contribution to make the Garden more beautiful, and the Playground more enjoyable. Bring Heaven to Earth, and reveal it to others. Teach them to see beyond what they see.

The truth is that only a widespread awareness of our divine nature and oneness can develop the solidarity capable of bringing forth universal and lasting justice, peace and unity. This is essential. This is the way, the only way.

Do so, enhance the quality of your life, and make the world a better place.

Just do it!

Namaste. ~ Piero

“This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; the being a force of Nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy.” ~ George Bernard Shaw, in “Man and Superman.”

“I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community and as long as I live it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can. I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work, the more I live. I rejoice in life for its own sake. Life is no brief candle to me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I’ve got to hold up for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.”

Good morning!

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

Look around and see Magic, Mystery and Miracles everywhere.

Be amazed! Be grateful! Be happy!

Today is a good day to realize, or remember, that we are not separated from one another.

There’s a lot of division and violence in the world, and we all live in a state of fear: fear that something bad may happen to us, fear that someone may harm us, fear that we may die. Most of the time, this fear is just hovering in the background, silently, but every now and then, depending on the situation, it emerges, and when it does, it becomes very noticeable.

The root of this ever-present fear is caused by our incapacity to see beyond what we see. We see ourselves as beings separated from one another, but we are incapable of seeing that we also are an unified whole. This strong feeling of separateness makes us feel very vulnerable, and develops in us an urge to protect ourselves from potential threats. We, then, gather together with other fearful human beings, those whom we feel affinity with, to organize and defend ourselves.

The fact that we are brought up in an environment where everyone sees the world in terms of us and them, allies and enemies, good guys and bad ones, surely doesn’t help. But since that’s what we are taught and learn from an early age, we simply accept that this is the way things are, and it doesn’t even cross our minds to question the veracity of this paradigm. We, except for a few, don’t take the time to examine and take a deeper look at all this, and we don’t even see a reason why we should: we are convinced that this is so. We believe that our physical existence, and what we are able to perceive and apprehend with our (limited) physical senses, is all that there is. We are immersed in this prevailing paradigm, and we can’t see how it affects what and how we see. We are like fish immersed in water, completely unaware of the liquid that surrounds us.

This view of life is the one that keeps creating pain and suffering in the world, and maybe the only way to overcome all the insanity, all the violence, all the anguish, is to adopt a new paradigm, a new understanding, a new view. And in order to get there, there is a lot of inner-work to be done. While we continue to do our best to curb the violence and solve the problems we face in this physical dimension with minimum damage, we must, at the same time, as humanity, do what is necessary to climb to a higher plane of consciousness where we can expand our vision, and come up with inspired and lasting solutions for our problems.

So, today is a good day to engage in a committed practice of silence and solitude. Today, and every day, is a good day to meditate. Today, I invite you to go to your place of peace in the center of your being. Listen to the voice of the Universe, and get to experience a sense of oneness. Get to know, with every fiber of your being, that we are all one. Get to know that we are, at the same time, human and divine, mortal and immortal, independent and interdependent, separated and connected, many and one. Realize that when we wound someone else, we are wounding our own selves, our loved ones, and the entire humanity, even the ones still to be born. Realize that violence is not the answer, and will never be. Violence only begets more violence, and that we know well.

So, do not allow yourself to be seduced by the “us and them” ideologies of a world divided in tribes. We are more than the tribes we identify ourselves with. We, all of us, are human beings, and the similarities that unite us are much greater than the differences that separate us.

Find peace within yourself, and help others find peace within their own selves. Do the inner-work necessary to achieve a higher consciousness and experience oneness. Free yourself from the illusion of separateness and from the shackles of prejudice and hatred. Nurture what unites, not what divides. Practice mindfulness. Practice nonviolence in all you do: nonviolent communication and nonviolent conflict resolution. Extend yourself, reach out, get to know members of other tribes, learn about their tribes, teach about yours, make friends, expand your understanding, and enhance peace. Stay away from those in your tribe who propagate radical messages, who are constantly blaming other tribes, those who advocate the use of violence to solve conflicts. Promote social justice in order to put an end to the structural violence – the oppression and exploitation of the powerless by the powerful — which causes the majority of the direct violence in the world. Do to others what you would like them to do to you, and don’t do to others what you wouldn’t want them to do to you. Practice optimism, and believe in a brighter future. Be kind and generous with everyone you meet. Be of service to others. Do what you like, and like what you do. Follow your bliss, and persevere in order to give your unique contributions to the world. Accomplish great things without ever forgetting to do all the small things along the way with great love. Strive to be the best that you can be, and never forget to help and support others so they too can be the best that they can be. Strive to feel good at all times, and make it a habit, at every moment, to try to feel better than you felt before. See all the beauty that surrounds you, and be amazed, grateful and happy. Enjoy the beauty of the Garden, and have fun in the Playground. Share your toys. And if you feel like doing it, give your contribution to make the Garden more beautiful, and the Playground more enjoyable. Bring Heaven to Earth, and reveal it to others; teach them to see beyond what they see.

The truth is that only a widespread awareness of our divine nature and oneness can develop the solidarity capable of bringing forth universal and lasting justice, peace and unity. This is essential. This is the way, the only way.

Are you part of the solution, or part of the problem? You know what you have to do, don’t you? What are you waiting for? Just do it!

Namaste. ~ Piero

“A human being is part of a whole, called by us the ‘Universe,’ a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts, and feelings, as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.” ~ Albert Einstein

November 17

Good morning!

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

Look around with the eyes of the body but see beyond what you see with the eyes of the soul. You may think that once you saw a tree, you saw them all, but each tree is singular; each one has its own unique features and personality. Look attentively, and see all the Magic, Mystery and Miracles.

Today is a good day to cultivate joy, peace and serenity, and enjoy life.

Practice to be mindful of your thoughts and emotions, and to let go of those that may be interfering with your appreciation of the beauty of life in this present moment.

Since a good life is a collection of good moments, practice to populate your days with many “I-am-feeling-good” moments, and strive to always feel better in this moment than you felt the moment before.

Let go of resentment, regret and remorse. Let go of worries and concerns. Choose thoughts that bring about joy, peace and serenity.

Just do it, and enhance the quality of your life!

Namaste. ~ Piero

November 18

Good morning!

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

Look around and see beauty. Breathe deeply and consciously, and take in all the Magic, Mystery and Miracles.

Be amazed! Be grateful! Be happy!

Today is a good day to remember that life is much more than what we are able to comprehend with our senses, and that the understanding of this condition — that we don’t even realize what we don’t know — should caution us to be careful in all that we think, say and do in this life.

When discussing with others, in order to evaluate alternatives and choose the best course of action, we should do so with reason and respect. We must practice civil discourse, talking to one another with deep deference, while holding back the impulse to violently attack those who hold points of view different from ours.

The truth is that the Golden Rule still is the best principle to guide our decisions. We need to be compassionate with those who are suffering. We need to help those who need help. We need to be gentle with one another, because this is what elevates us and brings out the best in us. This is what makes us human.

Today, I invite you to do for others what you would want them to do for you, and to refrain from doing to others what you wouldn’t want them to do to you, if you were in their situation.

Just do it!

Namaste. ~ Piero

November 19, 2015

Good morning!

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

Look around and be amazed by the beauty, be grateful for all the gifts that the Universe gives us, and be happy!

Today is a good day to think about the legacy that you will leave for your children.

What kind of world do you want for your children? What kind of life do you dream for them? You want them to be safe, happy and free, right? If so, renounce violence.

Violence inflicts pain and suffering, and condemns little children to carry the memories of atrocities for a lifetime. Violence shatters the children’s innocence and hope, and disseminates fear and mistrust. Violence brings forth the desire for revenge, and turns innocent children in slaves of hatred. Violence only produces more violence. Inflicting pain on someone else will not ease anyone’s suffering.

This insanity must stop.

Don’t inoculate the virus of violence in your children. Don’t give them a poison that you know will stay with them until they die. Free them from the curse of having to carry hatred and revenge in their hearts for the duration of their lives. Liberate them from this lifetime curse. Do something different in order to give them a better future. Be the one who brings about real change. Drop your weapons and go take care of the children, all children, your own and those of your enemies; they are your children too.

Think about that, and do what is right.

Just do it!

Namaste. ~ Piero

“When you call yourself an Indian or a Muslim or a Christian or a European, or anything else, you are being violent. Do you see why it is violent? Because you are separating yourself from the rest of mankind. When you separate yourself by belief, by nationality, by tradition, it breeds violence. So a man who is seeking to understand violence does not belong to any country, to any religion, to any political party or partial system; he is concerned with the total understanding of mankind.” ~ Jiddu Krishnamurti

Spaceship Earth – Part 4

A new consciousness is arising, one that makes us experience oneness and compassion for all sentient beings. If we want to preserve Spaceship Earth, we must adopt simpler, less violent lives, which include embracing a plant based diet.

I have dedicated myself to promote the vision that this planet of ours is our Garden and our Playground, and that we are called to enjoy the beauty of the Garden and have fun in the Playground; that we are called to share our toys because the enjoyment of others enhances our own; that if we feel like doing it, we should give our contribution to make the Garden more beautiful and the Playground more enjoyable; that we are called to understand that this is Heaven, if we want it!

The Hero’s Journey – Accepting the Call to Adventure

The Journey, by Mary Oliver

One day you finally knew what you had to do, and began, though the voices around you kept shouting their bad advice – though the whole house began to tremble and you felt the old tug at your ankles. ‘Mend my life!’ each voice cried. But you didn’t stop.

You knew what you had to do, though the wind pried with its stiff fingers at the very foundations – though their melancholy was terrible. It was already late enough, and a wild night, and the road full of fallen branches and stones.

But little by little, as you left their voices behind, the stars began to burn through the sheets of clouds, and there was a new voice, which you slowly recognized as your own, that kept you company as you strode deeper and deeper into the world, determined to do the only thing you could do – determined to save the only life you could save.

follow your bliss

This precious poem by Mary Oliver describes the courage is takes to accept the Call to Adventure.

I was summoned by the Forces of the Universe to so something that only I, and no one else, can do. I hesitated, postponed, and talked myself out of it as much as I could. I told myself that I couldn’t afford to take the risk. But the day finally came when I could not refuse to answer the call any longer. That was the day when I stopped lying to myself, accepted who I really was, left all the voices behind, and launched myself into the world, determined to do the only thing I could do, determined to save the only life I could save. From that moment on, I was able to hear my own voice. I remembered who I really was, and what I was brought here to do. I began to see all the Magic, Mystery and Miracles unfolding around me, and the stars burning with joy, smiling at me, and at my decision to follow my bliss.

I am happy for having chosen to be authentic and honest with myself. I am proud for having had the courage to answer the call, even though, when I launched myself, I felt I wasn’t prepared to face the challenges. But, later, I came to understand that we all feel that we are not ready. I realized that no one is ever ready, and that we are always only as ready as we can be. Given that, I realized that what it takes to follow one’s bliss is the crazy courage to say, “Ready or not, here I go!”

You are ready.

Go!

Just do it!

Namaste. ~ Piero

Daily Reflections – Week 45

I hope you enjoy these reflections. ~ Piero

November 6

November 6

Good morning!

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

Look around and be amazed by the beauty that surrounds you. Be grateful for all the gifts that were given to you. Be happy.

Today is a good day to live mindfully in order to create a good life.

Nothing has more impact in the quality of your life than your states of mind. That’s why it is so important to be vigilant and aware of your emotions and thoughts. A good life is a collection of good moments, and in order to create many good moments, practice the art of mindful living. Pause and ask yourself often, “How am I feeling right now? Why am I feeling this way? How can I improve the way I feel? What should I do to feel better?” Your thoughts create your reality. Your experience, right now, may not be exactly what you imagined, but right thoughts can reformat your understanding and allow you to see the positive in it. The more positive aspects you see, the better you feel. The better you feel, the better your life is. Say to yourself, “I am on the road to live an even better life than the great life that I am living right now.” See the positive in everything, and be grateful. Appreciate every moment, and consciously keep making every new moment better than the previous one. Expect good things.

Just do it!

Namaste. ~ Piero

November 7

Good morning!

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

Look around. Be amazed! Be grateful! Be happy!

Today is a good day to heal the world by focusing your attention on the people around you.

Pay attention to the people in your life, to those close to you. Pay attention to your loved ones, to your family members, to your friends. Pay attention to people who happen to be in front of you, beside you, and behind you, those with whom you are sharing this present moment, this space and time. Pay attention to whoever may be with you at any given moment. Realize that the Forces of the Universe brought you together, and that there is a reason for that.

Today, I invite you to make a commitment of giving of yourself to all of them.

Give your love, time, and attention to all of them.

Be generous, charitable, benevolent, altruistic, and selfless with all of them.

Be caring, thoughtful, considerate, attentive, and conscientious with all of them.

Be courteous, civil, polite, respectful, and understanding with all of them.

Be accepting, appreciative, grateful, gracious, and gentle with all of them.

Be calm, peaceful, serene, forgiving, and patient with all of them.

Be compassionate, supportive, and helpful with all of them.

Be kind with them all.

Just do it, and make the world a better place.

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 amazed! Be grateful! Be happy!

Today is a good day to heal the world by putting great love in all we do.

Dream big, follow your inspiration, and put yourself in motion to make your dreams reality. Let your desire to do great things propel you into action, but on the road to accomplish extraordinary feats, never forget to do the ordinary things along the way with great love.

So, dream big and do great things, but always remember to do the day-to-day things, no matter how small and mundane they may be, with great love.

Just do that, knowing that by doing so you will be making the world a better place.

Namaste. ~ Piero

“Not all of us can do great things. But all of us can do small things with great love.” ~ Mother Teresa

November 9

November 9

Good morning!

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

Today is a good day to stop the struggle to get what we don’t have, and take time to appreciate what we already have.

Today is a good day to stop the frantic search for those things outside of ourselves that we believe will make us happy, and quietly redirect our attention and find contentment, happiness and peace within our own selves.

Today is a good day to give ourselves permission to rest, simply rest.

Today is a good day to look around and be amazed by the beauty that surrounds us, and be grateful for the all gifts that the Universe keeps giving us.

Today is a good day to find Heaven, right here on Earth, inspire and guide others to see Heaven, right here on Earth, and bring Heaven to Earth by all that we think, say and do.

Today is a good day to infuse every person we meet with happiness.

When we stop the frenetic struggle, we find Magic, Mystery and Miracles around us. When we are at rest, we appreciate the gifts that were given to us, and we remember who we are and what we came here to do.

Take the day today to rest, appreciate the gifts, give thanks for them, and to find, inside your own self, the peace you have been longing for.

Namaste. The Divine Energy in me sees the Divine Energy in you, gives thanks and rejoices. The Divine in me bows to the Divine in you. Namaste. ~ Piero

November 10

November 10

Good morning!

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

What you see is just a part of what is out there. Activate the eyes of the heart and see beyond what you usually see. There’s Magic, Mystery and Miracles everywhere.

Be amazed by all the beauty! Be grateful for this wonderful experience we call life! Be happy!

Today is a good day to consider the virtue of perseverance.

On the journey to make your dreams reality, know that there is a time for everything under Heaven. There is a time to prepare the soil, a time to plant the seeds, a time to nurture the fragile plants, and a time for the harvest. But throughout the process, what there is more than anything else is hopeful waiting. As much as you may want to harvest sooner, you must wait for the right time, with the hope that everything will come out fine. So it is with your projects. I know that waiting for the results is hard. I know that many times the outcomes may be discouraging. I know that you will encounter failure at times. I know that you may doubt yourself along the way. But you have to be honest with yourself, stick to the calling, and follow your bliss.

Persevere! Just persevere! Success has less to do with immediate, favorable results and much more with your attitude of steady persistence in spite of difficulties.

Follow your bliss!

Namaste. ~ Piero

Spread happiness!

November 11

11/11

Good morning!

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

Look around and see all the beauty that surrounds you.

Be amazed! Be grateful! Be happy!

Today is a good day to reflect on patience and perseverance.

The first step is to remember who you are and what you came here to do. Hear the voice of the Universe calling you to be who you are meant to be, and to do what you are destined to do. Respond to the calling, and go be who you have been ordained to be, and do what you have been appointed to do. Follow your bliss, and stick to it no matter the difficulties, obstacles, failures, and frustrations you may face along the way. Be authentic, honest, and true, and don’t lie to yourself. Be devoted to your mission. Be who you are summoned to be, and do what you were brought here to do. No matter how discouraging the outcomes may be, don’t give up. Don’t quit! Stick with it! There will be bad days, with bad weather along the way, but no matter what, stay the course! Be patient and persevere. Know that no matter what happens, as long as your remain patient and persistent, you will succeed. Actually, know that just for being authentic and responding to the call, you are a success already. Your light shines brightly, and you are an inspiration, an example, and a blessing to the world. And that, in itself, is true success.

True success is to be authentic. True success is to be who you are, do what you like, and like what you do.

Rejoice!

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 that surround us. Astonishing, isn’t it?

Be amazed! Be grateful! Be happy!

Today is a good day to reflect on the benefits of living a contemplative life.

Everyone can practice contemplative living. Everyone can practice to listen to one’s life in silence and solitude. Everyone can practice to love oneself, and allow oneself to be loved. Everyone can practice to surrender, to be open, vulnerable and receptive.

If we live in contemplative consciousness, we are able to see beyond what we see. We become people of justice, forgiveness and reconciliation, and we are naturally led to be of service to others. As we practice our contemplative spirituality, we radiate the light of peace, and become the bringers of Heaven to Earth.

Daily Reflections – Week 44

It is my hope that you may enjoy these reflections. ~ Piero

October 30

October 30

Good morning!

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

Look around and see beauty everywhere.

Be amazed! Be grateful! Be happy!

Today is a good day to think about living a life that you love.

If you are unsure of what to do with your life, or what your true passion is, here are some questions that can help you. Ask yourself, “What do I like to do? What attracts my attention? What am I curious about? What do I like talking, watching, reading and writing about? What excites me? What do I like to do in my free time? What are the things I enjoy doing?” And if you are unsure of what you like, try different things. Experiment. Maybe you will find out that what you thought was going to bring you joy, proved not to be so.

Do the things you love, without thinking too much, and stop doing the things you don’t love, also without thinking too much. If you like something, just do it, and simply stop doing what doesn’t bring you joy, without recriminating yourself for quitting.

The truth is that we don’t need to find our passion because our passion always finds us. We know what we are passionate about, but we keep avoiding to acknowledge it. We refuse to accept our calling. We try to ignore it. We don’t follow our bliss because there are risks involved, and we are afraid of them. Since we don’t know if we will be successful, we choose to play it safe.

But what if we gave it a fair try and found out that we can live a good life doing what we love? Wouldn’t that be wonderful? Isn’t that what we want?

So, do more of what you like and less of what you dislike. Go have fun doing the things you enjoy, and know that there is exactly where you will find the answers.

Namaste. ~ Piero

Good morning!

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

Look deeply and see what you were not able to see before. Look with the eyes of the heart and see all the Magic, Mystery, and Miracles that surround you. Today, decide that you will pay greater attention, look for the beauty in the Universe intentionally, appreciate it, and allow it to touch your soul.

Be amazed! Be grateful! Be happy!

Today is a good day to forgive yourself for your mistakes.

Don’t chastise yourself for the poor choices you have made. Do not consume yourself with remorse, constantly reliving the errs of the past and condemning yourself for them. Protect your own self from those thought-attacks. Whenever they come up, do not push them away brusquely, but, instead, calmly choose to apply the CARR technique: Catch, Acknowledge, Release, and Return. Catch the disturbing thoughts and images. Acknowledge them, and take a good look at them as an external, non-emotionally involved observer. Gently, and consciously, choose to release these thoughts and emotions, and return to your life in the present moment, and to better-feeling thoughts. Be appreciative of your life in the here-now, and be grateful for the lessons learned through your mistakes. A time will come when you will be ready to forgive yourself, and the mistakes of the past will be seen as lessons that you had to learn. Then, you will say to yourself, ” I’ve learned the lesson. I am grateful for it. I forgive myself. I am moving on.”

No one is perfect. We all have done things we are not proud of. Life is an adventure full of risks. We are here to live and to learn. Do not let your failures, and the fear of failing again, discourage you, and stop you from trying. Learn, be grateful, forgive, and move on.

Learn to be your own best friend.

Just do it!

Namaste. ~ Piero

Good morning!

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

Look around. What do you see? Can you see beyond what you see? Are you aware that our brains are very selective, and that they have the tendency to acknowledge what they already know, and discard the majority of the things they do not know? Realize that you are not seeing the entirety of what is before your eyes, and make an effort to see more. Look with the eyes of the body and see with the eyes of the heart. Do so, and you will see Magic, Mystery and Miracles everywhere.

Today is a good day to stop thinking and judging. Today is a good day to practice the art of contemplation.

Stop the train of thoughts, and the internal discussion. Give your mind some moments of rest. Meditate and contemplate.

Just do it!

Namaste. ~ Piero

“Contemplation is the highest expression of man’s intellectual and spiritual life. It’s that life itself, fully awake, fully active, fully aware that it is alive. It is spiritual wonder. It is spontaneous awe at the sacredness of life, of being. It is gratitude for life, for awareness and for being. It is a vivid realization of the fact that life and being is us proceed from an invisible, transcendent and infinitely abundant Source. Contemplation is, above all, awareness of the reality of that Source.” ~ Thomas Merton, in ” New Seeds of Contemplation”

Good morning!

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

Here we are, living this amazing journey we call life. Let us remember to laugh, love, enjoy the beauty of this garden and have fun in this amazing playground that was given to us. Take in all the Magic, Mystery, and Miracles that surround you. Life is good!

Be amazed! Be grateful! Be happy!

Today is a good day to think about our urge to do a lot of things. Why do we want to do so much? Why do we worry so much about being efficient and productive? Maybe our greatest contribution to the world is to be happy, content and satisfied. Maybe we should focus on finding contentment in our lives.

So, today, I invite you to be mindful of your moods, and choose better-feeling thoughts, every moment, moment after moment. Focus on being happy, content and satisfied.

Focus on being happier now than you were a moment ago, and to be even happier in the moment that is coming.

Just do it!

Namaste. ~ Piero

November 3, 2015

Good morning!

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

Look around with the eyes of the heart, and see beyond what you normally see. See all the Magic, Mystery, and Miracles that surround you.

Be amazed! Be grateful! Be happy!

Today is a good day to reflect about curiosity and balance.

To be curious is a good thing, but, as you know, too much of a good thing can be bad. Not enough curiosity can lead to boredom and idiocy, but too much can lead to anxiety. If you are not getting enough intellectual stimulation, get out of your comfort zone, and exercise your curiosity. Read more, travel more, talk to people who see the world different than you do, and take time to reflect and get to well-informed conclusions. On the other hand, if you are too curious, and your desire to know is generating unrest, slow down, reduce the amount of intellectual stimulation, and practice a more focused curiosity. Like everything else in life, there is virtue in the middle, so strive to reach a healthy balance. If you are a specialist, expand your curiosity, and get interested in other things. And if you are a generalist, choose one subject and go deeper in it. Since we have access to unending sources of knowledge and intellectual stimulation these days, strive to reach a state of equilibrium where your curiosity takes you to be that balanced individual who displays mental steadiness, emotional stability, wise judgment, and a calm behavior.

Just do it!

Namaste. ~ Piero

Good morning!

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

Look around, and make an honest effort to see beauty. Make an effort to see the Magic, Mystery, and Miracles that surround you. Make an effort to see beyond what you normally see.

Be amazed! Be grateful! Be happy!

Today is a good day to practice creating your life.

The moments you are falling asleep and that you are waking up are the prime moments to create your life. As you wake up, instead of immediately getting up and focusing on the problems you have to solve, stay in bed for a few moments and see yourself as the powerful creator of your reality. Imagine that you have the power to create whatever you want, and all you have to do is to focus your attention on your desire. Now, imagine what you want your day to be, and what you want to attract and bring into your life. Focus on making each moment better than the one before. Focus every moment on feeling happier than before. Remain utterly awake, alert, and aware of what life will bring to you today, and be ready to be pleasantly surprised.

Have fun!

Just do it!

Namaste. ~ Piero

November 5

Good morning!

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

Look around, and see the Magic, Mystery, and Miracles. It is wonderful, isn’t it?

Be amazed! Be grateful! Be happy!

Today is a good day to create a good life.

A good life is a collection of good moments, and in order to create an abundant stream of good moments, commit to make this moment better than the previous one, and to make the next moment better than this one. Practice the art of mindful living. Pay attention to how you are feeling in this present moment, and choose to feel better, by releasing negative thoughts and bringing in better-feeling thoughts.

It’s simple, isn’t it? Just be mindful of how you are feeling, and choose to feel happier. Do this over and over again, moment after moment, and by doing so you will create a wonderful life.

Have fun!

Just do it!

Namaste. ~ Piero

Daily Reflections- Week 43

I hope you enjoy reading these reflections. ~ Piero

October 23

October 23

Good morning!

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

Look around. The Universe is a boundless field of possibilities, and the beauty of it is that if you aren’t loving the life you’re living, you can choose a new life — a new way of living — at any moment. Isn’t that awesome?

Be amazed! Be grateful! Be happy!

How are you going to live this day? How can you make of this day the best day ever? What do you need to do to populate your mind today with thoughts that produce good feelings?

Today is a good day to get good at choosing thoughts that make you feel better.

Begin by practicing the art of living mindfully. Practice to pay attention and to be aware of your thoughts and emotions. Be mindful of your feelings. How are you feeling right now? Would you like to feel better? If so, pause, acknowledge what you are feeling, identify the thought behind this disturbing feeling, release it, and consciously choose another thought to replace it, one that makes you feel better. Now, focus on this new thought for some time. Use your imagination, and see yourself feeling better. Give it some time and you will actually feel better. Do this regularly, and you will surely enhance the quality of your life.

Just do it!

Namaste. ~ Piero

“Reach for the best-feeling thought that you have access to right now, and as you that again and again, in a short period of time you will find yourself in a very good-feeling place.” ~ Abraham – Hicks

October 24

October 24

Good morning!

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

Apprehend the Universe with something more than your five senses. Look with the eyes of the body, but see with the eyes of the heart, the eyes of the soul. See beyond what you see. Life is more than what we can conceive, and the Universe is more than what we can see.  There is Magic, Mystery, and Miracles surrounding us.

Be amazed! Be grateful! Be happy!

Today is a good day to do only what you want to do. Today is a good day to liberate yourself from your self-imposed demands, from all the “I have to do this” beliefs. I invite you to question these statements. Every time you catch yourself saying “I have to do this,”  pause, and ask yourself, “Do I really have to do this?”

We constantly complain that we are too busy, but aren’t we the ones who have created this busyness? How much of it is of our own creation? Pause, analyze, and conclude that we impose too many unnecessary demands on our own selves. Realize, also, that we hold all the power needed to change this situation. It is up to us to decide and take the steps necessary to live less complex, hurried, stressful, and anxious lives.

So, today, I encourage you to disconnect from the network. Turn off your devices and befriend the silence. Look at all your “to-dos” and separate the “have-to-dos” from the “want-to-dos.” Ask yourself, “What do I really want to do? What gives me joy?” Take a good, honest look at your ‘want-to-do list,’ and if it is too long, narrow it down, and focus on fewer things, in order to reduce what you require from yourself.

I invite you, today, to do something radical: decide to do only what you really want to do. Decide to do less, or to do nothing! Say to yourself, “I don’t have to do anything today.” Give yourself the gift of rest, and experience an exhilarating feeling of power and freedom.

Today is a good day to make a commitment: “From this day on, I will take the necessary steps to simplify my life. I will get rid of time-wasters, and I will increase the time I dedicate to the things I love to do.”

Just do it!

Namaste! ~ Piero

October 25

October 25

Good morning!

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

Can you sense peace around you? Can you hear a humming sound in the silence? Can you smell a delicate, fleeting fragrance? Can you feel the gentle touch of the breeze on your skin? Can you leisurely savor what you have in your mouth, and discover new tastes?

Pay attention! Be alert!

Today is a good day to discover the richness of life in the here-now.

Relax and mindfully enjoy the present moment. The focused attention on the present moment infuses it with art, elegance and refinement, and makes even the simplest activities sensational. Next time you take a shower, for instance, focus on feeling the temperature of the water on your skin. Take in the scent of the soap, and looking attentively at the bubbles, see the multitude of colors and reflections. Enjoy the Magic, Mystery and Miracles that surround you, and find a renewed joy in everything you do. Stay in the here-now without the urge to rush to the next thing.

Just do that, and live a better life.

Namaste. ~ Piero

“It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.” ~ Antoine de Saint Exupéry, in The Little Prince

October 26

October 26

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 that surround you.

Be amazed! Be grateful! Be happy!

Today is a good day to let go of all those things that do not serve us anymore.

If you are still holding on to things that you wish were not part of life, such as the haunting memories of mistakes you have done in the past, be prepared. If you are still captive of unhealthy habits, and don’t seem to be able to take charge to remove them from your life, be prepared. If you are still living old lives that have played themselves out and do not serve you anymore, be prepared.

A time is coming when you will free yourself of all the unnecessary load you have been carrying all these years. A time is coming when you will suddenly realize that you don’t need to carry none of this anymore. Even without being conscious of it, a time of liberation is coming when you will be ready to easily forgive yourself, forgive others, heal completely, and move on with your life.

Just wait and see. Believe and be ready to receive.

Namaste. ~ Piero

October 27

October 27

Good morning!

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

Look around and see beauty.

Be amazed! Be grateful! Be happy!

Today is a good day to think about the needs of those you say you love.

Have you given attention to those who are near you? Do you pause what you are doing and give of yourself to them? Are you sensitive to their needs of love and affection? Do you put them first, or do you never have time for them?

Plants need a fertile soil and regular watering to survive. Are you nurturing the relationships with your loved ones? What should you do that you are not doing? And why aren’t you?

Just do it!

Namaste. ~ Piero

October 28

October 28

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 that surround you.

Be amazed! Be grateful for this beautiful garden and joyful playground that was given to us! Be happy!

Today is a good day to love, and understand that all we need is love.

There’s no better present than love, and there’s no better time to love than the present.

Love is all we need.

Namaste. ~ Piero

October 29

October 29

Good morning!

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

Just enjoy the Garden and have fun in the Playground.

Today is a good day to let go of lives that have played themselves out and do not serve us anymore.

1 – Acknowledge what may be holding you back, and let go of all the things that do not serve you anymore. Unblock the centers of energy in your body by letting go of negative emotions such as anger, remorse, resentment, guilt, fear, worry, criticism, judgment, condemnation. Create conditions for the Life Energy to flow freely in you and through you. See yourself as a conduit through which the Forces of the Universe can create, if you so allow.

2 – Figure out what the Universe is calling you to do, harness the courage to respond to the Call to Adventure, and set yourself in motion to follow your bliss.

3 – Practice the Art of Mindful Living. Attain and remain in an attentive state, listening to your inner voice, and acting on what it tells you to do. Find the right balance between future desires and present moment contentment; pursue your goals with enthusiasm, but never forget to live with gratitude in the present moment. Learn to joyfully accept what is being given to you, without always wanting something else.

Allow yourself to be used by mightier forces than you!

Just do it!

Namaste. ~ Piero

Daily Reflections – Week 42

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

October 16

October 16

Good morning!

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

The night went away, and the sun came out again. The celestial spheres continue to dance through the cosmos. Magic, Mystery and Miracles are here. We are here. Can you hear the silence?

Be amazed! Be grateful! Be happy!

Today is a good day to feel firmly established, safe, and sure of yourself.

Go to the center of your being, connect with the Divine Source, and find a sense of peace and stability. Feel that you are complete, that nothing is missing, and that you already know what you need to know. Feel that you already have all you need to have. Feel that you already are all you need to be. Rest in the comfort and confidence of knowing that you don’t need to know more, do more, have more, or be more. Feel that you are perfect and complete already. Feel good about yourself.

In the quietness of this morning, take time to plan. How are you going to use your time today? Be selective, and choose wisely. As you go through the day, stay in connection with the Sacred Energy. Go back to your plan often, and act on what you have planned. Focus, and move decisively, confidently, smoothly, and gracefully. This will dissipate all confusion, anxiety, or despair. Make of this day, a great day, focusing on the here-now, and enjoying every moment. And make it your goal to bring happiness to others.

Just do it! And know that by doing this, you will be enhancing the quality of your life, and making the world a better place for all.

Namaste. ~ Piero

October 17

October 17

Good morning!

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

Feel the breeze. Appreciate the silence. Listen! Birds are singing. Look around and enjoy the beauty of this garden. Go out and have fun in this playground. Enjoy all the gifts that were given to us.

Be amazed! Be grateful! Be happy!

Today is a good day to practice mindfulness, and be aware of our thoughts.

Be mindful of what you are thinking. If you catch yourself judging and condemning, pause, acknowledge your thoughts, and choose better ones. Don’t waste your time with criticism, but use your time to express gratitude and joy of living.

Have many delightful moments, and create many pleasurable moments to those who will interact with you today. Make it your goal today to have many good experiences and to create enjoyable experiences for others as well.

Just do it! And, by doing that, have more joy!

Namaste. ~ Piero

October 18

October 18

Good morning!

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

There is peace in the air, right? Can you feel it? Can you hear the humming sound in the silence? Can you see beyond what you normally see? Are you paying attention? Are you awake? Are you alert and aware of what is going around you and in you?

Be amazed by all the beauty! Be grateful for all the gifts! Be happy!

Today is a good day to feel and express love.

Choose a quiet place, sit down, close your eyes, and remain still and silent. Now, go to the center of your being. Focus on your breathing. Meditate. After calming yourself down, bring to your mind those beloved individuals with whom you have shared and share your life with, those with whom you have lived many memorable moments, those you love deeply. Relive those memories, see the images in the screen of your mind, and savor the emotions they bring up.

Today, the invitation is for you to feel the love, not for a fleeting moment, but for an extended period of time. Feel the love, and stay with it. Let love soak in.

Feel the love. Feel the love. Feel the love.

Love. Love. Love.

Realize that nothing — nothing — is more precious than this.

Now, contact the people who came to your mind, share your memories, and tell them how much you love them.

Express your love, and receive love back.

Live fully, love wastefully, laugh unboundedly, learn unceasingly, lead compassionately, and leave an honorable legacy.

Just do it.

Namaste. ~ Piero

October 19

October 19, 2015

Good morning!

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

Look around with the eyes of the heart. Can you see miracles? Can you see yourself as a miracle?

Today is a good day to go beyond the limited perceptions of our physical dimension, and have a transcendent experience. Today is a good day to listen to what the Universe has to say, and understand that there is more between the earth and the skies than we will ever be able to conceive. Today is a good day to receive the Life Force with open arms, and allow ourselves to be flooded by an immense love that goes beyond our understanding, a deep love that connects us all.

So, make it your goal today to perceive and receive the love that surrounds us. Be not afraid to express your affection. Show the world how good it is to be loved, and to love.

Just do it!

Namaste. ~ Piero

“Shower the people we love with love. Show them the way that you feel. Things are gonna be much better if you only will.” ~ James Taylor

October 20

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

Just pause for a moment, breathe deeply, and look at one small, little, tiny thing; it can be anything. Look at it, deeply! See it! Can you see? Isn’t it amazing? Aren’t we surrounded by Magic, Mystery, and Miracles?

Be amazed! Be grateful! Be happy!

Today is a good day to cultivate peace.

Begin by cultivating inner-peace. Slow down, and pause often. Listen to the voice of the Universe inspiring you. Do as you are told. Follow the guidance. Follow your bliss. Put attention in everything you do. Enjoy the present moment. Be here, now.

Now, cultivate outer-peace, by becoming a bringer of peace, a spreader of peace. Stop what you are doing and give of yourself to others. Listen to what they have to say. Be generous, patient, and kind with whoever you meet today.

Allow the Forces of the Universe to reveal Heaven right here on Earth through you.

Just do it! And live in peace.

Namaste. ~ Piero

October 21

October 21

Good morning!

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

Peace and beauty are all around us, right? We just need the right eyes to see. Look with the eyes of the heart and see Magic, Mystery, and Miracles everywhere.

Be amazed! Be grateful! Be happy!

Today is a good day to offer ourselves to be used by a Higher Force.

Go to the center of you being, to that place of peace. Remain silent and still, and set your intentions. Ask for guidance. Ask for your thinking and actions to be infused with love for all. Ask to be filled with the desire to do good, only and always. Ask God to guide your thoughts and actions, and to use your talents for the healing of the world. Ask that your work may enhance the lives of all sentient beings. Ask that you may be of service to the greater good of all. Ask for love, peace, success, and prosperity.

Now, listen to the Divine Guide in the silence, with the serene knowing that you will receive all that you are asking for. Listen, and do as you are told. Expect miracles.

Just do it!

Namaste. ~ Piero

October 22

October 22

Good morning!

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

Magic, Mystery, and Miracles are all around us. Can you realize that every tiny thing, no matter how insignificant we may consider it to be, carries an intelligence that is so immense that we cannot even fathom? Where all this intelligence comes from?

Be curious! Be intrigued! Be amazed! Be grateful! Be happy!

Today is a good day to believe in your own power.

You must believe in yourself. Everything you ever need to know already resides within you. Every cell of your body hosts the entire intelligence of the Universe. You know it already; you just have to remember what you already know.

You are magnificent. You are powerful.

Don’t follow anyone. You were brought here to explore, and to explore on your own. Others can tell you about their journeys, their adventures, their findings, their insights. They can even show you the roads upon which they have traveled, but your exploration starts with the creation of your own road, a road that is uniquely yours. Knowing where someone else has been, or even walking down someone else’s path, won’t cut it. Your real power resides in you having your own personal experiences, your own discoveries, your own epiphanies.

So, listen to others, and get inspired to embark on your own adventure. The real teachers are the ones encouraging you to free yourself from the role of follower, and motivating you to fearlessly launch yourself into the world. They are the ones saying, “Don’t follow me. Don’t follow anyone. Let my words and the words of other explorers be an encouragement for you to live out your own life fully. Do not worship me. Do not worship anyone. Following others makes you weak, makes you a slave. Liberate yourself! Face your fears and free yourself. No more apathy. No more laziness. No more surrendering to the seduction of comfort and security. No more sedation of the senses. Pay attention! Be alert! Be courageous and be brave! Follow your bliss! Then all your power will emerge. Then your light will shine brightly. Then you will be a blessing to the world, and others will want to follow you. And that’s when you will say, “Don’t follow me. Don’t worship me. I can tell you about my adventure. I can tell you what I’ve found. I can point you to the road I traveled, but you have to have your own adventure, your own road, and your own epiphanies. Don’t follow me. Don’t follow anyone. Just go!”

Just do it!

Namaste. ~ Piero
