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

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

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

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

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

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

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
