10 Reasons you are loved

1) You are alive. Think about it… You are alive and conscious. The sun came up today and kissed your face with its rays. Maybe you woke up in a bad mood, but the sun was still there even if it was hiding behind a cloud. It was put there in a perfect spot just to shine on the earth just for you. You are loved.

9)You are alive to see this present moment. You can change it or tweak it however you please. You can make it a utopia, or your own personal hell. But the universe always intended for you to be happy because you were made from love. Yes you are this powerful. Love everything and live now. You are loved.

10)You were made from love, from an amazing design. It functions on its own. it can be manipulated by man but it will always go back to its original function which is love. Take away everything that you think you are and you are left with love. You are perfection, you are love. Not because I told you, or a book told you, or someone says they know told you… But because the universe told you. It keeps telling you every second. Its telling you that you are loved right at this moment… Can you hear it? You are loved!

Be still, Be calm, And find what you are looking for.

be stillRemember when you were little and your parents would play the game called let’s see how silent we can be. Well at least mine did, I was a loud little kid who was always getting into things. Anyway, you would play along for a little while but eventually you would feel like you were going to burst, and the silence would be broken sending you running around the house like your hair was on fire. You had so much curiosity and energy for finding new things that you just couldn’t help yourself. This was a good time. Being silent, and calm did not do you much good when you were little, you had nothing to worry about. And if you think about it, you really have nothing to worry about now. Everything you think you should worry about, or “get done” has nothing to do with you. It has to do with everyone else. Being still didn’t do anything for you when you were little, but it can do great things for you now.

Have you ever tried to sit still as an adult? And I mean really sit still. Put yourself in a comfortable position, close your eyes, and your mouth and sit for a few minutes, with no distractions, not moving a muscle, all while being fully awake and aware. Most people would say “Oh Ernie you have no idea, that is all I want. Just being able to sit still for a few minutes a day.” But what I would say to most people is you can’t do it. Go ahead and try. Try to do it for 5 minutes. Empty your mind and sit still. I will wait…

How did it go? Most people can’t do it. We can’t do it because being still is something you need to practice at.

It’s not easy, but it is essential in our daily lives to slow everything down to… a… stand… STILL.

That is a problem that most people have in this age. We are all a bunch of Facebook posting, smart phone using, crazy people twittering ourselves into madness. Never realizing that doing nothing for a few minutes can keep us centered, and more in tune with who and what we really are, and that is humans having this beautiful experience we call life. When is the last time you thought of all that blood running through your veins, or actually thought about… well your thoughts? Why did you think of something? Where did it come from? Why am I even thinking at all? Am I thinking the same thing over, and over again day in, and day out?

Empty your mind, sit still, close your eyes, and breath for just a minute.

Did you feel that? That’s you! That’s the universe! That is everything that ever was and will ever be! That is the secret of life! That you are a miraculous thing!  You shape your life, and the lives of people around you, just by what you think! Be still… It’s amazing what listening to the things around you, and hearing, and feeling your own breath rolling over your lips, and tongue can do for your mental health… You are ALIVE! You are a walking, talking miracle… You have all the tools you need inside of you for happiness and peace, and for the happiness and the peace of others.

Sit still, be calm, and listen to your body.

I would wish you luck, but you don’t need it.
