MGTB insight: Romance and its magical dance!

“Romance is the glamour which turns the dust of everyday life into a golden haze.”

Carolyn Gold Heilbrun

To believe in romance, what a gift.  To experience it, how magical.  To open up to the feeling of excitement and mystery associated with love for all things, you can on your own convert the ordinary into something extraordinary.  To surrender to this amazing dance, you are able to reach a new plane of joy as you journey through your day.  Awash with romance, time with a friend becomes a profound connection of souls.  Listening to music becomes an instant boost to your positive energetic vibration.  A walk outside becomes a loving conversation with the world.  Opening yourself up to a romantic life, allows the seemingly unimportant to take on new meaning as you welcome the beauty of each moment.  Romance can mean so much more than receiving flowers or an invitation to dinner by that special person.  Romance can be born from appreciating the mystery that the world has to offer you daily. Touched by its glamorous effect, it is like receiving a giant bouquet of love for all things and an invitation to an amazing feast presented before you by the universe.  Open yourself to this excitement and experience the beautiful dance of a life magically transformed right before your eyes.  And don’t forget to keep your eyes open so you can see the dust change into a golden haze.

Magical Key to Bliss: Be romanced by your day- dance to the beat of nature’s drum and truly experience a beautiful sunset as the moon rises.

The Magical Guide to Bliss insight: Compassion, not judgment

“I got a fortune cookie that said, ‘To remember is to understand.’ I have never forgotten it. A good judge remembers what it was like to be a lawyer. A good editor remembers being a writer. A good parent remembers what it was like to be a child.”

Anna Quindlen

Nothing in life is exactly as it seems. Your interpretation of how the journey should proceed is based upon your own small world view and experience. To bring connection rather than separation, before you judge another based upon your own perspective, bring compassion to the table and leave criticism behind.  You have your own mountains to climb, you have your own valleys to get through.  You have your own blessings to cherish and you have your own life to live.  You were born into this world to learn, grow, and discover your purpose. Do your best to understand others with compassion and love as you move forward. You are on your path traveling through life with many there to teach you. As you go about your days, your journey will be even more fulfilling if you carry the intention to seek compassionate connections built upon mutual understanding. In your interactions today, attempt to stand for a moment in the shoes of another. As you allow kindness to permeate your relationships, be a light of compassion in a world that so desperately needs it. For it is by seeking to understand with a compassionate heart rather than judging that you will remember your roots even as your role changes. For we were all once starting out as beautiful little children filled with endless possibilities.

Magical Key to Bliss: Ask compassionate questions to learn about a friend’s life story.

The Magical Guide to Bliss insight: Set the example

“It is difficult to bring people to goodness with lessons, but it’s easy to do so by example.”

Seneca

Actions have always spoken louder than words.   You can either choose to be a person who talks about kindness or a person who lives it. You can either be a person who complains that the world is a bad place, or one who sets out to do things that make it better.  When you live a life that brings goodness to people through kind deeds, most assuredly, you can inspire others to do the same.   Eager to live in a world where compassion and kindness rule the day, you start to dwell in the possibility that if you do something that brings joy to your surroundings, change can happen. Better yet, you start to believe that if you show others what can happen when you step out of your comfort zone intent on making a difference, then small acts of boldness governed by love can set the tone for all to see. Be a true believer in the “good finder” mentality. Meaning that if you look for the examples of good in the world and seek out those who offer an empowering inspiration through their life example, you will find and be infected by the good. And if you want to teach others to do the same, be the change, be the good, be the living lesson for all to see. If you set the example through your loud and proud actions, you will embolden others to act as well leading all of us to a better life that has the potential to be filled with overwhelming goodness.  You are the company you keep, when you set a good example odds are in your favor that you will bring out the best in the company you keep.

Magical Key to Bliss:   Set the example, choose one good thing to do for another today.

Welcome to March with the Magical Guide to Bliss: Profound Wisdom

PROFOUND WISDOM

March is the month when Daylight Savings Time usually begins, marking the time of year when the days begin to grow longer as the Earth slowly transitions to her Springtime rising and setting positions in the heavens. Light symbolizes knowledge; March is the month where we are blessed with more and more light with each passing day, and thus the concept for this chapter is Profound Wisdom.

As the third month of the year progresses, let the light of knowledge that shines within each of us also grow day by day. Make it your mission in March to learn something new each and every blessed day you are lucky enough to experience the light of the Sun. As the days grow warmer and longer, so too will your capacity to give and receive love. For inherent in the ability to love unconditionally is your intimate knowledge of yourself and the profound wisdom that accompanies self-understanding. As you strive to understand others, you simultaneously strive to comprehend your own inner workings. As we walk steadily and rhythmically in step with others, it is this wisdom that will guide you as you continue to seize the day, open your heart to a greater love and continue the journey marching forward towards a greater bliss.

The Magical Guide to Bliss insight: Greatness through cooperation

Great discoveries and improvements invariably involve the cooperation of many minds. I may be given credit for having blazed the trail, but when I look at the subsequent developments I feel the credit is due to others rather than to myself.

Alexander Graham Bell

It is a humble person who acknowledges that most accomplishments in life are a result of the cooperation of many minds.  It is a wise person who stands in gratitude for the influences and support that have brought success on the path.  It is a great person who realizes that we are all connected and that amazing things can happen as long as we work together. And, it is a proud person who recognizes that their initial innovations inspire others to rise to a higher level. We have all come to this world with our special talents.  It is cooperation not competition that will allow each one of us to use our gifts to benefit society.  It is cooperation not posturing that will advance society for the greater good.  It is cooperation not our need to be recognized that will further foster greatness. For we are not separate islands, but a collective of very talented, compassionate land masses whose efforts allow all of us to blaze new trails. We cannot do it alone, we need each other as we look to make a difference as we transform out of the ego to essence.   For we all have seen further and greatly benefitted from standing on the shoulders of giants and that understanding of cooperation has traditionally been the only thing that has ever lead to greatness.

Magical Key to Bliss: Do something to foster cooperation in your work, school, or any relationship today.

The Magical Guide to Bliss insight: What is your philosophy?

“Wonder is the feeling of the philosopher, and philosophy begins in wonder.”

Plato

On this beautiful day, challenge yourself to define what your philosophy of life will be. When based in wonder, this quest is one that has the potential to broaden your horizons and expand your vision of the future.  It is important to define a system of values by which you want to live. Guided by a desire to know something more than what you see, you can go further and ask the questions that will have you see the world and the universe with aware, open and accepting eyes.  Based in a philosophy of a life that is magical, you start to see people who cross your path as there for a reason. Based upon a philosophy of life that is inquisitive, you experience difficult events as embodying vital lessons there to guide you on.  Based upon a philosophy of surrender, you stand effortlessly in awe as your life unfolds beautifully in the unexpected, unfamiliar, or inexplicable circumstances.   Based on a philosophy of love, you will begin to marvel about what you start to discover about yourself conscious to the miracle that you are all because you decided to live an examined life, look to the burning questions of your soul to set a fantastic course ahead.  So on this beautiful day, the invitation is there to start a journey into wonder and embrace life through the eyes of a philosopher. Like the sage ones who have gone before, are willing to accept it?

Magical Guide to Bliss in sight: Use your life as part of the great love experiment!

“Whatever we accomplish belongs to our entire group.  A tribute to our combined effort.”

Walt Disney

Imagine if we combined our efforts to spread more joy in this world, what a happier place this would be.  Imagine if we combined our efforts to spread more peace in this world, what a different vibe and energy we would experience.  Imagine if we combined our efforts to spread more love in this world, what a wonderful feeling as we recognize the gifts each of us embodies.  When we unite and combine efforts to bring good to this world, the possibilities for miraculous change will multiply beyond measure.  What was once a splash in the ocean, together becomes a wave of love that has the potential to travel for miles and miles, far and wide.  The impact when we combine our efforts to spread joy, peace and love, will soon become a tribute to the entire group that set out to meet this worthy goal.  Together when we reach out in love, we can eradicate the illusion of loneliness.  Together when we reach out in love, the epidemic of depression can become a thing of the past.  Together when we reach out in love, we can connect and accomplish so much more than we could ever imagine on our own.  Send out an invitation to others to join in and take ownership of all we can accomplish together to reach towards a goal that will leave a legacy of overwhelming love for future generations to experience. That legacy of love is something we could all be proud to belong to.

Magical Key to Bliss: Let your imagination run wild as to the magical reality that could be all of ours.

The Magical Guide to Bliss insight: Are you bringing love to this world?

“God doesn’t look at how much we do, but with how much love we do it.”

Mother Theresa

When it seems like there is nothing you can do to bring hope to a world in disarray, remind yourself that positive change comes not from how much you do but how you do it.  You can have an impact if you make the decision to bring your own kind of love to this place that is desperately in need of it.  The media presents a picture of turmoil, fear and suffering. What the media fails to show are the people who are making amazing changes through acts of charity, compassion, service and love.  There has to be a time of enlightenment where you start to wake up to a reality of your own creating. There has to be a time where you start to break the cycle of negativity and finally learn the lessons of the past to create a greater collective consciousness in the present that is founded on principles of love.  This may seem like a request to live in a pollyanna of sorts, but then again who is to say that a world where humanity governs themselves with the highest virtues is far off. Start a revolution of love. Instead of feeling like you cannot make a difference, ask yourself are you bringing love to this world. If you allow love to permeate all that you do a different world is possible. Start inspiring this great hope to come to fruition. This reality you can build and assuredly it will be well worth it!

Magical Key to Bliss: Let yourself be guided by your intuition and reach out to someone in need today.
