Maya’s Magic! RIP Maya Angelou

Maya’s Magic! RIP Maya Angelou

maya angelouYesterday, the world shook with sadness at the news of the parting of Maya Angelou.

“We may encounter many defeats but we must not be defeated.”

Social media was filled with tributes to the amazing lady; even people who may not recognise her name instantly, would recognise her world-famous poetry, quotes and philosophies.

It was such a blessing that Maya passed away as peacefully as she lived.

“Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope.”

It would be such a difficult, and very long, task to include everything I found inspirational about Maya in a blog post, simply because where could I start? Her entire life was inspirational. She had such a tragic start, living with abuse, being raped by a family member at the age of 8. Both the book and the film I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings had a lasting impression on me. The tragedy continued for a long time after that, however the challenges Maya faced, she used to transform herself into an icon of forgiveness and love.

“You may not control all of the events that happen to you but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

She went on to live her life leading by example. In her several autobiographies, she was always completely honest about what had happened to her, how she coped and how she learned from her challenges, bringing comfort to so many who could relate and learn from her strength.

“When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time.”

Every woman in the world will appreciate her beautiful poem Phenomenal Woman. What a pleasure to find this video of the wonderful lady herself reciting it.

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

Thank you Maya. I will never forget how you made me feel.

Love Yourself Like Your Life Depends On It

Just choose to let go …

Just choose to let go …

Just choose to let go ..., release fear, release judgments

She let go.

Without a thought or a word, she let go.

She let go of the fear.

She let go of the judgments.

She let go of the confluence of opinions swarming around her head.

She let go of the committee of indecision within her.

She let go of all the ‘right’ reasons.

Wholly and completely, without hesitation or worry, she just let go.

She didn’t ask anyone for advice.

She didn’t read a book on how to let go.

She didn’t search the scriptures.

She just let go.

She let go of all of the memories that held her back.

She let go of all of the anxiety that kept her from moving forward.

She let go of the planning and all of the calculations about how to do it just right.

She didn’t promise to let go.

She didn’t journal about it.

She didn’t write the projected date in her Day-Timer.

She made no public announcement and put no ad in the paper.

She didn’t check the weather report or read her daily horoscope.

She just let go.

She didn’t analyze whether she should let go.

She didn’t call her friends to discuss the matter.

She didn’t do a five-step Spiritual Mind Treatment.

She didn’t call the prayer line.

She didn’t utter one word.

She just let go.

No one was around when it happened.

There was no applause or congratulations.

No one thanked her or praised her.

No one noticed a thing.

Like a leaf falling from a tree, she just let go.

There was no effort.

There was no struggle.

It wasn’t good and it wasn’t bad.

It was what it was, and it is just that.

In the space of letting go, she let it all be.

A small smile came over her face.

A light breeze blew through her.

And the sun and the moon shone forevermore…

~ Rev Safire Rose

Just choose to let go …

Do it anyway …

People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies. Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you. Be honest and sincere anyway.

What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight. Create anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous. Be happy anyway.

The good you do today, will often be forgotten. Do good anyway.

Give the best you have, and it will never be enough. Give your best anyway.

In the final analysis, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.

Mother Teresa

No matter what religious beliefs people may hold, I believe these words from Mother Teresa to be universal truth. If all any of us lived by were these words, they would be enough to achieve instant worldwide peace.

This is the philosophy Mother Teresa lived her entire life by. She didn’t just speak it, she lived it and showed it. This is what earns her the title of a Saint.

The Universe Speaks …

Earth? Where every day you get a fresh start, Di, every thought brings you closer, every word makes you more, every decision is the right one, every baby step makes it easier, every smile makes it happier, and, every tree knows your name.

Manifesto for a happier life

happier life“Be brave. Even if you’re not, pretend to be. No one can tell the difference. Don’t allow the phone to interrupt important moments. It’s there for your convenience, not the callers. Don’t be afraid to go out on a limb. That’s where the fruit is. Don’t burn bridges. You’ll be surprised how many times you have to cross the same river. Don’t forget, a person’s greatest emotional need is to feel appreciated. Don’t major in minor things. Don’t say you don’t have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresa, Helen Keller, Leonardo Da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein. Don’t spread yourself too thin. Learn to say no politely and quickly. Don’t use time or words carelessly. Neither can be retrieved. Don’t waste time grieving over past mistakes Learn from them and move on. Every person needs to have their moment in the sun, when they raise their arms in victory, knowing that on this day, at his hour, they were at their very best. Get your priorities straight. No one ever said on his death bed, ‘Gee, if I’d only spent more time at the office’. Give people a second chance, but not a third. Judge your success by the degree that you’re enjoying peace, health and love. Learn to listen. Opportunity sometimes knocks very softly. Leave everything a little better than you found it. Live your life as an exclamation, not an explanation. Loosen up. Relax. Except for rare life and death matters, nothing is as important as it first seems. Never cut what can be untied. Never overestimate your power to change others. Never underestimate your power to change yourself. Remember that overnight success usually takes about fifteen years. Remember that winners do what losers don’t want to do. Seek opportunity, not security. A boat in harbor is safe, but in time its bottom will rot out. Spend less time worrying who’s right, more time deciding what’s right. Stop blaming others. Take responsibility for every area of your life. Success is getting what you want. Happiness is liking what you get. The importance of winning is not what we get from it, but what we become because of it. When facing a difficult task, act as though it’s impossible to fail.”

— Jackson Brown Jr.

Let animals show us the way to be more human

Do you remember watching cartoons like Tom and Jerry, Roadrunner etc. when you were younger? They showed us the rivalry between the different species.

I remember my own cat often being chased by dogs when I was a little girl. In fact, he was caught by one and had to have a steel pin put in his leg to hold it together after being smashed up in one such attack.

Well, it seems that with our new world consciousness developing, our animals are being affected for the better too. I love reading stories such as the following one about amazing animal companionships.

dogcatstoryMy mother’s friend adopted this lovely dog after he was abandoned by his previous family. His name is Shaun.
Shaun had always been very good at eating all his food. Every last bit that was, he ate it.
One day he started leaving a little bit behind. He wouldn’t eat everything, no matter what. He always left a little behind. Every morning when my mother’s friend… checked Shaun’s bowl, the food was gone. That was very strange, because Shaun always spent the night by her side.
One night she decided to investigate the food situation. She waited quietly by the food bowl and then, in the middle of the night, a cat came through the window and ate the remaining food. She noticed the cat was actually pregnant. She realised that Shaun had been saving his food for the mummy cat. A week or so later the cat came into her house and gave birth to 6 little kittens. Shaun took care of them as if they were his own babies. My mother’s friend adopted the cat too (her name is Meow) and they took care of the kittens until they all found a loving home.
Nowadays Meow and Shaun live happily together as a family and they each have their own bowls of food. ♥♥♥

This following video shows a story I saw recently on a UK TV programme about animal odd couples. Pippin the deer is now fully-grown, has a fawn of her own and lives in the wild, but still returns regularly to hang out with Kate.

And for some more examples of unlikely but cute animal couples:

As the speaker in the video says,

“Co-operating works. Being social works.”

Life is Meant to Be Fun and Easy

laugh-oftenLaugh, play, and enjoy your life.
When you are seeing the grand scheme, the bigger picture of it all, you understand that life is the greatest game you will ever get to play! Seriousness is a disease that can cripple your soul. Drop this overly serious self who has such a tight grip on you!  Your desires will manifest soooo much faster! And it feels much better to be playful again…

Give yourself permission today to have a good long laugh at all your seriousness. Add just a tad of lightness into your agenda and see how good it feels! You’ve been carrying enough weight on your shoulders and you deserve the feeling of letting it all go!  Your only real job in life is to enjoy each moment that you are alive.  This includes allowing others to do whatever they want to do, whenever they want to do it!  This means that you can do the same! Enjoy hanging out with your super vibrant fun self today!

A big belly laugh at it all always serves as the best guide…

Above is an example of one of the uplifting FREE Enlightened Messages emails I look forward to receiving from Enlightened Beings. They actually arrive personalised, although I have removed the personalisation for use here. I use their Super Manifestor meditation package often, and always feel great from doing so.
