The Ramblings Of A Rose

Include more exercise in your life. Working out particularly outdoors is a great way to generate the ‘feel-good' factor. People who exercise regularly tend to look good and live longer.

Every thought you have, every dream, every desire, every hope and every fantasy is a thread in the great tapestry of your life. The quality of those threads will determine the quality of the final picture.

Mornings seem to be a bad time for most people, and if you start off sluggishly, this negative mood can hang around until lunchtime. Put yourself in a positive frame of mind before you even get out of bed.

If something is bothering you, whether it's a person, an incident, or something you did or didn't do, acknowledge it, learn from it and then delete it. It's taking up valuable mind space and undermining your self-esteem.

Others create their own situations for a reason. Therefore, don't be overly concerned for they have lessons to learn, too. Loved ones must be allowed to chalk up their own experiences, and learn from their own mistakes.

In Zen the bases is a return to the true spiritual religion, the kind that grows in your heart and reaches out into the universe embracing all living things. It's kindness and caring and compassion, and you can teach it to your children.

Life is too short to put up with unsatisfactory situations. Do things because you want to do them not because someone else expects you to do them. Any decision resulting in a loss of your valuable time or self respect is unacceptable.

Take full responsibility for your life and you will find peace and become happier in yourself and be able to move forward in a purposeful way of your own choosing and not buffeted this way and that by other people's desires and expectations.

You have the right to choose for yourself how you will feel at any given moment about any situation you might find yourself in. You have the right to choose not to lean on or depend on anyone for anything. You always have a choice. Even if you choose not to choose.

Making important decisions can be very difficult. Outside influences and friends or relatives with good intentions' often hinder our decision making process and confuse us. You will always make the right decision if you trust your instincts, your intuition and your heart.

There is a natural rhythm to the energy inside you, sometimes this energy is strong and outgoing and at other times it's quiet and sensitive. When strong it's time to pursue goals and take risks and get things moving. When it's quiet you need to take time out to relax and just be for a while.

If you have a serious problem and there seems no answer in sight it could be that your emotions are getting in the way and you are working against yourself, try taking a back seat for a while and see how things are in a week or maybe a month. Nothing lasts for ever - not even the bad times.

Ask yourself, what is important in my life and what is simply dragging me down? What would I change about my life? Which individuals contribute to my happiness and which do not? Tell yourself, it's my life! And if I am to remain happy and healthy I alone must decide who stays and who goes.

Occasionally it may feel like ‘this is not what I wanted' but there was a time when you thought you wanted it and it may still be for the best. But if you have changed your mind you need only acknowledge this to yourself to avoid confusion and then state precisely and clearly what it is you want now.

When you wash the dishes, vacuum the carpet, take a shower, call on a friend, flirt with a new and tantalizing person, cook food, make love, go shopping, or hit your thumb with a hammer - enlightenment is there. We are never separated from it. There is no need to look for enlightenment in any place other than where we are.

Take time to smell the roses, the coffee, the fresh cut grass, the real leather, a fine wine... Whatever rocks your boat! Play the 'When I grow up I want to be..' game with your partner. Or the 'If I were rich...' game. Or 'If I had three wishes...'. It's fun. Dream big dreams - in colour! No matter your age there's always time for more fun!

Use your sleeping time positively. If something's bothering you ask yourself some questions about it before you go to sleep. Make sure you phrase those questions positively. Avoid ask yourself ‘why am I such a failure?' Ask yourself instead, ‘how can I be more successful/confident/happy?'. Pay attention to your dreams and keep a note pad by you.

To let go is not to be in the middle arranging all the outcomes, but to allow others to effect their own destinies. To let go is not to be protective, it's to permit another to face reality. To let go is not to deny but to accept. To let go is not to adjust everything to my desires but to take each day as it comes. To let go is not to regret the past but to grow and live for the future.

How you think will depend on whether you are an optimist or a pessimist; one differs from the other as night from day and yet both are right, each is right from his own point of view, and this point of view is the determining factor in the life of each. It determines as to whether it will be a life of success or a life of failure. If you must be a pessimist, be an optimistic pessimist!

Attitude is a reflection of the person inside. Having a great attitude is not the result of having a great life; having a great life is the result of having a great attitude. Cultivate a great attitude. With a great attitude you can choose the kind of day you're going to have. Today stretches ahead of you, waiting to be shaped. And here you are, the sculptor who gets to do the shaping.

Depending on how you choose to use it, electricity can be constructive or destructive. Used positively it can fill a room with light. Used negatively it can give you a nasty shock. All thought, good and bad, is creative and tends to become a material thing. And like the electricity it can be constructive or destructive depending on how you choose to use it, positively or negatively.

We are all capable of becoming tired, selfish, resentful and fatigued to a child-minded state in which our judgement and reasoning is impaired, causing us to dwell on unreasonable fears and paranoia, even causing panic attacks. When you feel like this it is important to stay calm and get plenty of rest. Try to distract yourself by doing something that calls for concentration and one-track mindedness and stick with it until you are feeling stronger.
