The Power of Love

While peace is our true nature, we must first learn that this peace flows most freely from within when we truly make peace with ourselves. Once we own this peace whole-heartedly, we will discover that we are also at peace with all the people in our lives. So yes, when we recognize that only love is real, we know this with every cell in our bodies, minds and spirits. This is what it means to fully own our personal power … for this power is the power of Love. ~ Cathy Ginter

Our Willingness ~

We have to watch what our mind is telling us, especially when old patterns of conditioning are at play. We cannot trust those thoughts that bring us down and/or hold us back. Blessedly, we can liberate ourselves along with everyone around us through our willingness to be in a space of love and forgiveness. in Joy ~ Cathy Ginter

Laughing Buddha

All perception is ultimately an illusion constructed out of our conditioning, a mere fragment of any given circumstance, and never the entire truth. As such, we begin to understand that no one has to be wrong and that nothing is personal. From this vantage point, there is nothing to be attached to, and the need for conflict instantly falls apart. Comically, we have no-thing to defend but yet another illusion. If we can see this clearly, we can laugh at ourselves and lighten up, ending the needless and seeming endless suffering of humanity. This approach releases all the energy we waste in conflict and allows us to find creative solutions, to make music and to celebrate Life. Much like the Buddha, laughing in the garden, where is the problem Now? ~ Cathy Ginter
