Via The Law of Attraction

“The Paradoxical Commandments

People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered.

Love them anyway.

If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
Do good anyway.

If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies.
Succeed anyway.

The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.

Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway.

The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds.
Think big anyway.

People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs.
Fight for a few underdogs anyway.

What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
Build anyway.

People really need help but may attack you if you do help them.
Help people anyway.

Give the world the best you have and you'll get kicked in the teeth.
Give the world the best you have anyway.”

“Liberdade é seguir o fluxo do coração. O sofrimento nasce pelo fato de seguirmos os comandos da mente condicionada, pois ela muitas vezes nos leva na direção oposta àquela que o coração determina. A mente condicionada está envenenada pelo passado; ela está contaminada pela ideia de fazer justiça com as próprias mãos. Você quer se vingar pelo fato de ter sido machucado, então você controla, argumenta, exige, e faz de tudo para que as coisas aconteçam do jeito que você acha que vai dar certo. Porém, essa ação te afasta cada vez mais do seu coração.”

“Libertad es seguir el flujo del corazón. El sufrimiento nace porque seguimos los comandos de la mente condicionada, pues ella muchas veces nos lleva en la dirección opuesta a la que determina el corazón. La mente condicionada está envenenada por el pasado; está contaminada por la idea de hacer justicia con las propias manos. Quieres vengarte por el hecho de haber sido herido, entonces controlas, argumentas, exiges, y haces de todo para que las cosas sucedan de la forma en que crees que van a funcionar. Sin embargo, esta acción te aleja cada vez más de tu corazón.”
“Freedom means following the flow of our hearts. Suffering is born when we obey the commands of the conditioned mind, as it often leads us in the opposite direction of where our hearts tell us to go. The conditioned mind has been contaminated by the past and filled with the idea of taking justice into our own hands. When we seek revenge because we were hurt, we start to control, argue, demand and do everything we can to make things happen the way we think is right. However, this behavior distances us more and more from our own hearts.”

Awareness Meditation | March 4, 2015

Be in harmony with each breath, each moment, and know that in giving yourself this time to develop awareness and a steadiness of attention you are nourishing spirit, head, and heart. Let it be an adventure, and in the silence and the stillness that comes with practice you’ll discover wonders here for you, now.
