"Do unto others as you would have others do unto you"

     LOVE IS THE GOLDEN RULE

"Treat people the way you want to be treated. Talk to people the way you want to be talked to. Respect is earned not given" -Hussein Rishna 

The Golden Rule of Life is a moral and ethical obligation that is  guided by Love. Do as you  would like to be done by.  Your actions affect other people and most importantly yourself. What you put out will come back to you. When you feel wrongly done, you can seek justice appropriately and know that it is better to forgive and bless in order to move on to release yourself from the perceived burden. 

 

Dwelling in Love is our highest expression of ourselves. Practice the Ingredients of Love: Patience, kindness, humility, courtesy, generosity, unselfishness, good temper, guiless, and sincerity.

SEE THE BEAUTY IN YOURSELF

"A beautiful face will age and a perfect body will change, but a beautiful soul will always be a beautiful soul" -Buddha

What is Beauty? What does it mean to you? There is Beauty in nature, beauty in the smile of a child, beauty in the face of an elder whose stood the test of time. In today's society, many are driven by external beauty based on outward appearance. Many are fighting against time to preserve their youth at all costs. Behold and appreciate your Beauty.

Go within and acknowledge your wisdom, goodness, and acts of loving-kindness. Beauty is the light of the soul. It is more than just physical appearance. The wisdom of living well and aging gracefully is reflected in how we feel about ourselve, how we care for ourselves mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually; and how we touch the lives of others. Live well and age gracefully. Take heed to these points:


-Know Yourself

-Care for Yourself

-Be Appreciative

-Continue to Grow

-Create Wholesome Relationships

-Pay It Forward

RELAX AND DWELL IN YOUR INNER SANCTUARY

"Within you. there is a stillness and a sanctuary to which you can retreat at any time and be yourself" -Hermann Hesse

In the busyness of life we become scattered, fragmented, and disconnected from our inner self. Take time to reflect and ask yourself "How am I feeling?". Quiet yourself and release yourself from the thinking mind. Thich Nhat Hanh quotes,"Feelings come and go like clouds in a windy sky. Conscious breathing is my anchor".

Relaxation is an essential aspect of self-love and self-care. Take respites during the day for restoration and rejuvenation of mind, body, and soul. Be mindful of your breath. Take deep cleansing breaths, close your eyes, find solace within yourself, and "Just Be". Our true home is a sacred place and inner sanctuary:


 -Dwell in Healing

-Dwell in Peace

-Dwell in Presence

-Dwell in Love

BE PRESENT

Do you find yourself reliving the past and thinking more about the future? If so, you are not present in your life. Being present is treasuring each moment and fully engaging in life. When we are present we are attentive to ourselves and others. We pay attention to how we are treating ourselves and whether negative self-talk overrides opportunities to love and care for yourself. When we learn to be present with ourselves, we can be present with others and create better relationships. Do not miss your life by not being present. Live here now! Here are some points for self-reflection to consider: 


-What valuable lessons have you learned from the past and move on?

-Do you pay attention to sensations of scent, sight, hearing, taste, and touch?

-Do you multitask without focusing fully on one task?

- Can you accept things as they are and not how you wish they would have been?

-Do you entertain stories in your head that keep you mired in the past?

Excerpt taken from "Journey to Wholeness: Reflections for Transforming Your Life", by Dr. Jean Marie Farish. Available on Amazon and Xlibris.


Set your intentions to be present. Be in the flow of life and become more productive. When you find yourself focused on the past, feeling worrisome and burdened, do not engage with the thoughts see them as clouds passing by and reflect on why this is showing up for you. It is time to let go and feel the freedom of being present in your life. After all, we are creating our lives each moment. Journal on the above and ... See where it takes you.

RELATIONSHIPS ARE MIRRORS


What are relationships revealing? Do you see what you really need to see? How can you learn to be better? Expectations of others can lead to suffering. We often blame others for what is not working in our relationship without self-reflection. We learn in the context of our relationships, and the world is a looking glass reflecting back what we need to know.


Our innate desire is to have nurturing and intimate relationships, experience good friendships, and have poisitive interatctions with others. Relationships, whether in our personal lives, work, community, and any setting, show us what we need we need to know about ourselves. We all have a desire to feel a sense of belonging, and to be respected, valued and appreciated. What we give is reflected back to us; and it is just what we need to grow and be better.

ACCEPTANCE

"Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don't resist them, that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they life" -Lao Tzu

Do you try to control the outcome of life circumstances? Do you go against the flow of life? Do you find yourself disappointed as a result of expectations? We cannot fix what has already happened. It takes a heart of Love to let go and surrender, flow of life, and trust that your are just where you need to be to learn and grow. When we are struck we are not present with life.


Accepting ourselves and life events may seem to be passive, but it is not resignation but an active step on your path forward to create something new. Accept yourself with love and self-compassion and you will free yourself and open the space to create something new: Reflect on the following:

-How do you feel when you resist accepting something in which you have no control?

-How does expectations increase suffering?

-How can acceptance help you experience life more deeply?

-Do you focus more on what people think about you?

-What prevents you from fully accepting yourself?

-What messages of negative self-talk do you experience? Are you your worst enemy?

Access my article published in Sivana East, "Accepting Yourself with Love and Self-Compassion" https://blog.sivanaspirit.com/accepting-yourself-with-love-and-self-compassion. Journal on the above questions. Accept, move on, and create a life you love and ... See where it takes you.
