    my random ramblings……

    love seems such a strange mysterious thing…..
    it seems to be everywhere and yet people yearn for it…….
    somewhere most of us do not understand the true nature of love…..
    i am only starting to understand……..
    anything that involves hurt,obsession and possession is not love……
    love is just love……
    it is just there……
    it is a free flowing energy…..
    the more we try to row against its flow…..the more resistant and hard it will appear……
    to fully bathe in its nurturing glory we have to just be……and its true beauty can be appreciated only when we flow freely with it…….
    life is teaching me about life and love is an integral part of life……
    i see love everywhere……
    in the playing puppies…….
    in the falling leaves……
    in the blooming flowers…….
    in the rising sun……
    in the shining moon……..
    in the smiling butterflies…….
    everything around us is filled with an energy…….a vibration………that we all call love……..
    it was a few days ago…..
    i was all depressed and allowed negative energies to clog my bodies……
    it is not less than a thrombus or embolism that clogs our blood flow and while this negativity drains us of our energy and decreases our life flow…….
    i remember feeling so lonely and left out……
    i felt no one cared for me or loved me…..
    and my friend came to my aid……
    he told me that none of us were alone in the world……
    we are constantly receiving love from the surrounding nature in all forms……..but we fail to recognise or feel it…….
    he made me understand how happiness and love is always present within us and thats all we need to search……
    he just re instilled in me the knowledge we all know and made me experience the fact that all we have to look is within us……
    he was kind enough to listen to the way i was pouring and calmly explained to me the importance of seeing the light within each of us……..nurturing and nourishing them……..
    since that day i am understanding love one step better…….
    love flows freely when a person is his own self……
    love does not understand prejudice….
    missing someone is not love……
    love is knowing that we deeply love someone and just being content with that feeling and having no expectations from the other person….
    we have tuned our own selves to hurt and dissapointment…….
    once we know to differentiate between cosmic debris and positivity…true energy of love flows through us……

    another instance was when i felt this pang of jealousy when i assumed that my boyfriend was flirting with a girl….
    i confessed to him that i felt jealous…….
    and he smiled and told me……
    “dear…….if we know how deeply we love each other……then there shall be no room for such feelings……and he said that by ackowledging the fact that i was jealous i had made it easier to accept the situation….
    this incident taught me two lessons……
    one that jealousy can never creep into us if we are aware about how much we love a person and he/she loves us…….
    and two about acceptance……..accepting our negativities or things we are ashamed of only tends to make us convert them into lessons…..

    Hahaha, very funny story Paul from Austria :-)

  5. mari says:

    Agora mesmo entrei aqui para ler esse espaço e gostei muito da historinha do Paul de Austria.

    Olá Fabrício,
    Vi a sua preocupação com sua amiga. Geralmente quando algo nos chama atenção em relação “à algum socorro” é porque naquela hora vc. pode ajudar ou seja está com forças para “Orar” e ser atendido, a favor daquela pessoa. Você está perto da sua amiga, então faça as orações com a mesma fé do seu pedido.
    Fabrício, eu não sei de onde vc. é mas aqui no Brasil estamos em lua minguante até o dia 23 de fevereiro. Até lá, sómente, até esse dia seria muito bom ler os salmos 06, 41 e 119.
    Os salmos 06 e 41 seria bom le-los sete ou nove vezes consecutivas e logo após o 119, que vem a ser o salmo que a Virgem Maria recitava sempre as dezoito horas. O salmo 119 é o mais longo dentre os livro dos salmos. Os salmos 06 e 41 são específicos para causa de doença e é bom lê-los até ao lado do doente.
    O horário de “Mercúrio” que vem dar força em relação ao dom da fala, e assuntos que necessitem da Oratória, talvez seja o ideal para vc. recitar, esses salmos, sómente, até o dia 23. Esses horários aqui pelo Brasil são :
    No dia 19/02 as 17:00 e 24:00 hs.
    No dia 20/02 as 11:00, 14:00 e 21:00 hs.
    No dia 21/02 as 08:00 e 18:00 hs.
    No dia 22/02 as 12:00, 15:00 e 22:00 hs.
    No dia 23/02 as 09:00 e 19:00 hs.

    Desejo que ela melhore e vc. com todo amor de amizade que tem por ela possa ser atendido nesse momento de precisão.

    Mari Raphael.

  6. Love that story “God is watching”
    very cute.

  7. ENTERING THE KINGDOM OF THE FISH

    Nights made of dreamy dust from angels wings,
    Days filled with water colours and a promised ring.
    Waterfalls and the sound of the rain falling on the trees.
    A whole forest of green and purple dreams.

    Initiation,connection,attraction.
    Confusion
    A voice saying..
    « You are now entering the kingdom of the fish. »

    Find your way back with trouble,
    Or hold on to that pact with the devil.

    Choice.And the choice is yours.
    Waterfalls and ancient maps.
    Darkness and crystal traps.
    A voice.That voice is yours.

    You are now entering the kingdom of the fish.
    Passion,creation,obcession and illusion.
    Filled with more passion and illusion turning into creation.
    Unforgetable journey in the arms of Poseidon.

    You have now entered the kingdom of the fish.
    Are you scared?Is it real?
    Here,enough room for the lost poets and work left uncomplished.
    Here,enough room for the lost lovers who have seen their lives vanish.

    Moon circles and witches dancing,
    To cast a spell on souls who have been suffering.
    Now in the kingdom of the fish,you’ll have to be yourself.
    Or perish drowned on troubled waters under giant waves.

    Enough room for wounded kings and foolish queens.
    And braves who have refused to sell their dreams.
    Forever young as it is an illusion,
    Forever filled with wide imagination.

    The artist has returned home.
    The pianist is playing a song.

    Eternally composing,
    Eternally inspiring.

    In the kingdom of the fish,
    Where time does not exist.
    They are all welcome to love,
    And free the crows and the doves.
    They know that nothing can come above,
    Than Art made with unconditional love.

    And the gobblins are saying…

    Shhhhut!

    Oh,damn you…

    :)

    I have taken it from my site’s last posting (http://nourishpeace.blogspot.com/2009/02/why-some-people-have-all-luck.html), and really – it seems like learning from you, as you too give same message.

    Why do some people get all the luck while others never get the breaks they deserve?

    Here answer goes by Professor Richard Wiseman, University of Hertfordshire:

    Ten years ago, I set out to examine luck. I wanted to know why some people are always in the right place at the right time, while others consistently experience ill fortune. I placed advertisements in national newspapers asking for people who felt consistently lucky or unlucky to contact me.

    Hundreds of extraordinary men and women volunteered for my research and over the years, I have interviewed them, monitored their lives and had them take part in experiments.

    The results reveal that although these people have almost no insight into the causes of their luck, their thoughts and behavior are responsible for much of their good and bad fortune. Take the case of seemingly chance opportunities. Lucky people consistently encounter such opportunities, whereas unlucky people do not.

    I carried out a simple experiment to discover whether this was due to differences in their ability to spot such opportunities. I gave both lucky and unlucky people a newspaper, and asked them to look through it and tell me how many photographs were inside. I had secretly placed a large message halfway through the newspaper saying: “Tell the experimenter you have seen this and win $50.”

    This message took up half of the page and was written in type that was more than two inches high. It was staring everyone straight in the face, but the unlucky people tended to miss it and the lucky people tended to spot it.

    Unlucky people are generally more tense than lucky people, and this anxiety disrupts their ability to notice the unexpected.

    As a result, they miss opportunities because they are too focused on looking for something else. They go to parties’ intent on finding their perfect partner and so miss opportunities to make good friends. They look through newspapers determined to find certain types of job advertisements and miss other types of jobs.

    Lucky people are more relaxed and open, and therefore see what is there rather than just what they are looking for. My research eventually revealed that lucky people generate good fortune via four principles. They are skilled at creating and noticing chance opportunities, make lucky decisions by listening to their intuition, create self-fulfilling prophesies via positive expectations, and adopt a resilient attitude that transforms bad luck into good.

    Towards the end of the work, I wondered whether these principles could be used to create good luck. I asked a group of volunteers to spend a month carrying out exercises designed to help them think and behave like a lucky person.

    Dramatic results! These exercises helped them spot chance opportunities, listen to their intuition, expect to be lucky, and be more resilient to bad luck. One month later, the volunteers returned and described what had happened. The results were dramatic: 80% of people were now happier, more satisfied with their lives and, perhaps most important of all, luckier.

    The lucky people had become even luckier and the unlucky had become lucky.

    Finally, I had found the elusive “luck factor”.

    Here are Professor Wiseman’s four top tips for becoming lucky:

    1) Listen to your gut instincts – they are normally right
    2) Be open to new experiences and breaking your normal routine
    3) Spend a few moments each day remembering things that went well
    4) Visualize yourself being lucky before an important meeting or telephone call.

    Have a Lucky day and work for it.

    “The happiest people in the world are not those who have no problems, but those who learn to live with things that are less than perfect.”

    Olá Paulo,
    Gostaria de pedir, se possível, as orações e vibrações positivas do pessoal da comunidade para a minha amiga, Renata Raminelli, que sofreu um aneurisma essa noite e esta com risco de vida hoje. Desculpe o tom da menssagem.

    Hello Paulo,
    I would like to ask, if possible, the prayers and good vibrations of the bloggers, for my Friend, Renata Raminelli, that is now in Coma, with risk of life.
    If everyone could send a Healing Thought to her, I think it could make the differece. I am sorry and thanks a lot.

    A Simple Formula To Fill Your Life With More Love, Abundance And Happiness

    Would you like to experience more happiness and fulfillment in your life? Or just feel sooo tremendously good – and even if it’s only for a few minutes a day…? Ok, good – let’s see what we can do.

    Hmm – did you ever wonder, where all the happiness you are longing for is actually hiding? Maybe it’s in L.A., in New York, somewhere in Europe, on the moon, in your soul mate or maybe it’s just showing up after you made your first million dollars…?

    No, far from it! It’s actually much closer and much easier to get than you might think. Getting excited? What I’m going to show you right now is really amazingly simple – almost too simple to imagine that this could work or even completely change your life.

    But please stay with me – I promise this works like a miracle. Ready? Good, let’s get started:

    * Look for a quiet spot where no one will disturb you for the next 5-10 minutes.

    * Make yourself comfortable and sit down on a chair. If you prefer, you can also lie down on your back.

    * Close your eyes and relax.

    * Now comes the most important part: Switch OFF your mind. Whatever happened yesterday, today, or what might be tomorrow has absolutely no importance for the next 5-10 minutes. Let go of everything that keeps your mind spinning. Be like a new-born, absolutely free and unburdened. Just BE – open, wide, fresh. You know, you can access this freedom anytime you want and that’s actually the biggest luxury you can give to yourself. And it won’t even cost you anything – just a few minutes of your time…

    Have a great day & may all your dreams come true ;-)
