positively regretful

positively regretful [1]
by n. o. regrets

in an ego-centric world of materialism and negative emotions, it is Healing... to utilize bad-vibrations as 'food' to fuel the positive.

regret, an emotion that many of us share, can hold us back from blossoming into our True, Expressive Self.   interestingly enough, regret can also be used as a re-Mind-er to shift focus and tap into positively Positive emotions.  

regret (behavioral, experiential) tends to attract similar ego-ic (fear-based) emotions such as anger, criticism, and judgment.

in my own experience, the shame of ((“i wish i hadn’t done that, back then”)) has helped me to become less and less judgmental, which has been the most Free-ing experience of my life.

this needs to be stated again:
the worst memories of my life are (now)
potential springboards into (what i believe)
is the most love-ing emotion that humans can experience –

try it, you’ll love it!

nonjudgment immediately re-Leas-es us from every, single negative emotion.   when wIe wallow in nonjudgment, even forgiveness is mute – because wIe under-stand that humans are complex beings, that things happen, and that every-one is doing the very best that s/he can, in every single moment.  

this is not to say that lenny is completely nonjudgmental… 100% of the time, but rather:

the Higher-Self part of us can be Nonjudgmental,
and it feels soooooo good to tap into that,
especially at times when the hell-acious ego is at the controls.

my Christ-mas wish, for you and i, is that wIe are more and more able to experience nonjudgment.  wIe can turn ‘regret’ into a positive experience...

...and that, my friend, is:

Positively regretful

black is not the ending that you think of (when you’re scared)
black is just a doorway (open Now) for those who dare
black can leave behind the physicality (and pain)
black is not an ending, baby (take me home again)

that's real

that’s real
by l. martineau

we shared a thousand moments
we never will grow old
we shared a thousand moments
upon, this mountain, cold

but there is so much more than war and death and hell and pain
we shared a thousand moments, now,
and here we are, again

* inspired by the movie “cold mountain”, and the idea that Love doesn’t (ever) end.

months, weeks, minutes

months, weeks, minutes
by N. Ow...

* a few nights ago, jean and i watched the movie "the bucket list", which felt like a continuation of a surreal week of contemplation about what is important in life.

* in his book, "the seven habits of highly effective people", steven covey uses several techniques to help people determine their True priorities.  one of those techniques is to get in touch with your 'Higher Self' by 'writing your own eulogy' -- from the perspective of loved ones, friends, co-workers and neighbors.


* anthony robbins asks his students to write down what they would do (and with whom) if they only had:
  • six months to live
  • one week to live
  • six minutes to live

"take a moment to write down what would you save/rescue, 
if your house was burning down, 
and if you only had a few minutes..."

during the past week, a couple of things became painstakingly apparent:

1. we can go through life without ever re-cognizing how much good that we've done, and how many lives that we've touched in a positive way.

2. we can touch lives in a positive way in just a few minutes... with a heartfelt hug, a personalized note, an attentive ear, or a positive message.

the little things in life -- like simple demonstrations of love -- are, in actuality, the Big things. if willy could have re-written a book, he would have entitled it:

"don't sweat the small stuff (and it's all small stuff)... 
except for when it's the Big stuff."

Love. Family. Friendship. Happiness.
there's never a time like Now to tap into what's really, really, Really important.
hasta luego, willy.

-the beginning.
