Jul 08, Kinjal Parekh rated it it was amazing. The book starts with a very heart warming letter to his daughter which made my eyes teary. The book further talks about how time, space and matter might be an illution and all we have is now. It literally questions all those questions which we ask ourselves like who we are and are we here and what we can do with our lives.
I felt like I was reading myself and my thoughts in a much simplified way. The book then consists of over notes from universe for life lessons, fear and self doubt with creatives which are some 2sentances long. This can work like your guiding cards whenever you need help and you randomly open a page to see what message unfolds before you. It speaks about the old soul thinking and about magics and miracles.
May 06, Cristian Marrero rated it it was amazing. Lovely book of passing on what we should know of life, from a Father to his Daughter. Jun 08, Marie rated it it was amazing Shelves: spirituality. Hell is not knowing it. You chose it, in large part, for the challenges you'd likely have. They never do. And it's how new stuff and find you faster. And vice versa for removing things from your life. If you even want one.
Let everyone else off the hook. Mar 18, Peggy McAloon rated it it was amazing. How do you guide a daughter or son's footsteps in a life filled with challenges and obstacles? None of us knows how many years, months, days, or hours we have left. I want to get even. False intentions can be elusive, but you can recognize them by the feeling-tone they carry, including fear, greed, rage, hopelessness, and weakness. Sense the feeling first, refuse to buy into it, and then remain aware until you find the intention lurking beneath. Aim to be a saint and a miracle worker. Why not?
If you know that the goal of inner growth is to acquire mastery, then ask for that mastery as soon as possible. The beginning of mastery is vision; see the miracles around you, and that will make it easier for greater miracles to grow. The ego keeps its grip by making you feel needy and powerless.
From this sense of lack grows a hunger to acquire everything in sight. Money, power, sex, and pleasure are supposed to fill up the emptiness, but they never do. You can escape this painful illusion if you see yourself in the light. You are both of the light. Everyone lives in the same light. When you are tempted to judge another human being, no matter how obviously he or she deserves it, remind yourself that everyone is doing the best he or she can from his or her own level of consciousness. Everyday life is a kind of swirling chaos, and the ego is entrenched in its demands.
You need to remind yourself, day in and day out, of your spiritual purpose. Some people find it helpful to write down their intentions; for others, periods of regular meditation and prayer are useful. Find your center, look closely at yourself and do not let go of your intention until it feels centered inside yourself. We all fall into traps of selfishness and delusions when we least expect it. The chance remark that wounds, the careless lie, and the irresistible urge to cheat are universal.
Forgive yourself for being where you are. Apply the same dictum to yourself that you apply to others: I am doing the best that I can from my own level of consciousness. The paradox of being spiritual is that you are always wrong and always right at the same time. I now mediate for minutes each morning, but the time doesn't matter as much as being consistent does. It is better to meditate for five minutes every single day, than 20 minutes twice a week. But keep in mind it is better to meditate twice a week than not at all.
Reading spiritual literature has become a treasured compliment to my daily meditation. I feel inspired every day when I read books like Holy Shift! These books are written with the intent that the reader will enjoy one page a day, so as to not feel overwhelmed by commitment. It is amazing how inspired you can feel from just one page of really profound writing.
Bringing more gratitude into your life is a game changer. I firmly believe that the more gratitude you express, the more the Universe will provide you to be grateful for. I live in the center of Houston, so as much as I would love to be walking on a beach or hiking a beautiful mountain everyday, it's just not possible.
I have learned to appreciate what I can get, and to be mindful whenever I am outside. I now leave my phone on the counter when I take my dogs for a walk and I have swapped scrolling Facebook for looking at the shapes in the clouds. I notice the way the breeze feels on my skin, smell the fresh cut grass and stop to admire beautiful flowers. I don't believe in coincidences, but I do believe in the synchronicity of the universe. When things "just work out" I believe it is the universe showing us that it has our back, and is conspiring for great things to happen.

Living with this outlook makes for really positive experiences to occur practically on a daily basis. Each sign feels like a gift and let's be honest — who doesn't love presents? There are so many ways you can incorporate quick breathing exercises into your life, all day long. I often find myself doing breath work at traffic lights, in line at the grocery store and when my kids occasionally really push my buttons. I call it, "hitting the pause button. With consistent meditation you become less reactive and more responsive.
I used to be really impatient, but now at the first sign of feeling triggered, I just "hit the pause button" and breathe. Want to know if you should you go Keto?
