Spiritual Metaphors 4 Life ~ Mirror

1 Comment

Mirror Life is like a mirror. Because we attract what we are thinking about into our lives, we can look at the people and the circumstances around us to see what we’ve been thinking.

We might point a finger at someone to blame them, but there are still 3 fingers pointing back at us.

When we change our thinking, we change our circumstances, and the mirror of life will reflect it back to us.

(What song is stuck in your head right now? "Man in the Mirror"? "Reflection"?)

Life is like a musical instrument. All the potential is in the instrument to make incredible music, but for us to play the music, we have to practice. We have to make sure our thoughts instruct our actions and become habit so that our inspiration can come through. Instruments

Spiritual Metaphors 4 Life ~ Magnet

Life is like a magnet.Magnet2  We all attract and repel all the time. We attract the things that are most like us and our thoughts, and we repel things that aren’t like us. Once we know what we love and what isn’t important to us, we attract more of what we love to us—from all sides.

Spiritual Metaphors 4 Life ~ Mission

No Comments

Life is like a mission. When we have big dreams of what we’d like our lives to be, we are receiving our mission from headquarters. It is meant for us, or we wouldn’t have even had the idea. We are worthy. We deserve it. It is meant for us. And once we get it, we’ll receive a new mission.   Missionpossible

Spiritual Metaphors 4 Life ~ Gadgets

No Comments

 Gadgets Life is like choosing the latest gadget. Look for the real value—a brand name isn’t as important as knowing that the product delivers on its promises. Knowing what’s really important to us, we can always attract the people and circumstances into our lives that really enrich our experience.

Spiritual Metaphors 4 Life ~ TV

No Comments

Tv Life is like TV. We can change the channel, but it’ll take a lot more energy to change what shows are made. For that we’d have to co-create by working with producers, directors, film, actors, etc. We are co-creators. We don’t have total control, we just work with the energy already set into motion in the universe (or the industry!)

Spiritual Metaphors 4 Life ~ Well-Oiled Machine

No Comments

Welloiledmachine Life is like a well-oiled machine. An attitude of gratitude is the oil that keeps things running smoothly. If we fill our lives with the dirt and grime of complaints, blaming others, making excuses, cursing our fate or other negative things, we muck up the ability for parts to move and they eventually come to a grinding halt and have to be overhauled. Gratitude keeps us moving, flowing freely and moving where we want to go.

An Ecological, Spiritual, Fabulous Book – A Year in Green Tea & Tuk Tuks

No Comments

Tuk-tuk-bookThis book was given to me as a gift by a friend who knows me very well.  (Thanks, Meghana!) It’s the personal and true story of a British guy who decides that Sri Lanka is the place to build his ecological dream. 

I related to this book on so many levels—from the part of me who is an expat and understands the culture clashes to the part of me who sees Sri Lanka as a paradise that must be preserved, to the part of me that loves the connection between spirituality and ecology.  It’s all here!

With chapters like “Lanka or La-La-Land?” about his decision about whether to live in Sri Lanka or Los Angeles (to which I would answer “both!”) and passages like, “I found myself on a spiritual quest. I began to believe that the world was engaged in a transition, shifting our values from competition and greed to cooperation and synthesis, giving birth to a new vision, the ‘divine marriage’ of inner and outer, male and female, reason and intuition, Matter and Spirit,” Rory Spowers continued to strike very personal chords.

The beauty is, he’s done it. He has taken 60 acres in the South of Sri Lanka and dedicated it to organic produce, green tea, natural ecosystems, sustainable living, and marrying the best of nature and innovation.  I can’t wait to visit!  And I love the book, so I’ll be sharing more soon.
