Peace of Mind …

LIVING SUCCESS 3D--PEACE

Peace is present right here and now, in ourselves and in everything we do and see.

Every breath we take, every step we take, can be filled with peace, joy, and serenity.

The question is whether or not we are in touch with it.

We need only to be awake, alive in the present moment.

Don’t Blame The Lettuce …

LIVING SUCCESS 3D--lettuce-cami-rodriuez

When you plant lettuce, if it does not grow well, you

don’t blame the lettuce.

You look for reasons it is not

doing well.

It may need fertilizer, or more water, or

less sun.

You never blame the lettuce.

Yet if we have

problems with our friends or family, we blame the other

person.

But if we know how to take care of them, they will

grow well, like the lettuce.

Blaming has no positive

effect at all, nor does trying to persuade using reason

and argument.

That is my experience.

No blame, no

reasoning, no argument, just understanding.

If you,

understand, and you show that you understand, you can

love, and the situation will change”

True Presence…

When you sit in a café, with a lot of music in the background and a lot of projects in your head, you’re not really drinking your coffee or your tea.

You’re drinking your projects, you’re drinking your worries.

You are not real, and the coffee is not real either.

Your coffee can only reveal itself to you as a reality when you go back to your self and produce your true presence, freeing yourself from the past, the future, and from your worries.

When you are real, the tea also becomes real and the encounter between you and the tea is real.

This is genuine tea drinking.
