Nurture Yourself – Live a Life filled with Love

This beautiful story has a simple, yet important message .
Sometimes, it’s the simplest of stories that make us ponder the most.

The Black Dot  art-black-a-dot-web

One day, a professor entered the classroom.
He asked his students to prepare for a surprise test.
They all waited anxiously at their desks for the exam to begin.

The professor handed out the exams with the text facing down, as usual.
Once he handed them out he asked the students to turn the papers over.

To everyone’s surprise, there were no questions
just a black dot in the center of the sheet of paper.

The professor seeing the expression on their faces,
told them the following:

“I want you to write about what you see there”.

The students, confused, got started with the inexplicable task.

At the end of the exam, the professor took all of the papers,
and began reading them out loud in front of all the students.
All of them, with no exception, focused on the black dot,
trying to explain its position in the center of the sheet of paper.

After all had been read, the classroom silent,
the professor began to explain:

“I’m not going to grade you on this exam,
I just wanted to give you something to think about.

No one wrote about the white part of the paper.
Everyone focused on the black dot.
And, the same happens in our lives.
We have a white piece of paper to enjoy
but we always focus on the black spots.

Our life is a gift given to us, with love and care.
We always have reasons to celebrate:
Nature renewing itself everyday
Our friends around us
The job that provides our livelihood
The family we’ve been blessed with
The miracles we see daily

Yet, we insist on focusing only on the dark spot:
The health issues that bother us
The lack of money
The complicated relationship with a family member
The disappointment with a friend
Our past childhood or current failings

The dark spots are very small
when compared to everything we have in our lives,
but, they’re the ones that pollute our mind.

Take your eyes away from the black dots in your life.
Enjoy each one of your blessings,
each moment that life gives you.

Be happy and live a life filled with love.

In the LIGHT of LOVE

Time to fill in your heart with light and love

once you’ve looked away from the black dots.

I honor the place in you
in which the entire universe dwells.
I honor the place in you
which is of Love, and of Truth,
of Light and of Peace.
When you are in that place in you
and I am in that place in me.
We are One.

Nurture Yourself – Be Mindful of Your Beloved Sisters and Brothers

nurture-unity-earthloveunity

When we recognize our unique beloved sister or brother
who does not look like us, we can begin to build a more peaceful world.
Learn to embrace the differences we have for we are all cautiously walking our own journey of life; each of us with our own inner and outer conflicts. Peace among all sisters and brothers should be our purpose towards a better world.
Although the title of this video seems to lack what I’m saying, upon viewing you will see that it’s appropriate in showing that we are more alike then unalike.
Namaste,
Isadora

Nurture Yourself – with Serenity

Because of our stress filled lives, we all need to create a quiet, calm and peacefully still place where we can feel serenity.

Whether you’re someone who meditates or not the focus is to clear your mind of surging thoughts.

You need to sit quietly and focus on bringing yourself into a calm state.

It’s a difficult task because your mind wants to run back to those problems you want to solve or eliminate.

Your imagination can help with this difficult task. It can provide you with dream-like places that help you to to calm down.

I like to visualize a garden filled with flowers of every imaginable color. It’s an image that can make anyone smile.

Listening to soothing music can help bring your mind stillness.

Nurturing yourself at the end of the day can help you reach a peaceful relaxing sleep.

It can be a great health benefit. Serenity can bring back a soothing peace we’re all seeking.

Can you imagine a place of serenity?

Nurture Yourself – Spread You Wings and Fly

A child is like a butterfly in the wind.
Some can fly higher than others
But, each one flies the best it can.
Why compare one to another?
Each one is different.
Each one is special.
Each one is beautiful.
