Attitudes that support spiritual awareness!

Photo by Gratisography on Pexels.com

There are simple choices that supports our spiritual process, and not just about making our life more pleasant and enjoyable, but also …… of moving out of the compulsive ego that imprisons us in limiting and unhappy fallout.

A choice of one uplifting attitude invites an entire field of uplifting attitudes and raises our consciousness.

It’s helpful to realize that the ego is extremely needy and gets energy from negative personality attitudes of predatory self-indulgence ….. like indignation over rights and entitlements, expecting no consequences.

The ego refuses to accept responsibility and usually sees a request for self-responsibility as oppressive! The subconscious ego can distort reality in order to be seen as a victim ….. and our individual level of power diminishes, as does our level of consciousness. It retards our spiritual progress and makes life challenging.

Yet, we can begin to transform our experience of Life, and indeed the world, by making simple decisions.

Kindly consider consciously choosing to Be even one of these attitudes and observe the effect:

  • Calm
  • Genuine
  • Warm with a sense of Humor
  • Friendly
  • Honest
  • Pleasant
  • Considerate
  • Helpful
  • Kind
  • Respectful
    • Respectable
  • Supportive
  • Dependable
  • Ethical
  • Loyal
    • Responsible

Our choices determine consequences and shapes our reality. Being conscious of our freedom of individual choices can be very uplifting and freeing.

With FourSquare choices and uplifting attitudes we form a positive armor and eliminate the pain of mistakes.

Add to that realization …..

That we need not do it alone …… that the Eternal is always helping us ….. then we equip ourselves to face any challenge and open our spiritual awareness.

Universal Life Energy is the Eternal at our fingertips, to easily contact consciously. And the more we utilize IT, our progress becomes more evident.

“The more you repose your full confidence in Universal Life Energy and throw your whole weight into the scale of the Positive, the more rapidly you equip yourself to conquer all adversity.”

Eugene Fersen, The Fundamental Principles in Science of Being, page 348.

Your choices determine your destiny …… your thoughts, attitudes and behaviors, shape your reality.

Life is a choice and our emotions and attitudes are reinforced by energies held in mind. And what is held in mind tends to manifest. Your earthly destiny is solely your own doing ….. it’s a spiritual reality.

In the hope You choose uplifting attitudes, PortiaSLB

“Good itself is indestructible and eternal. Only Evil is perishable, and the sooner it perishes the better. Govern your life by true, intrinsic values rather than by apparent worth.”

Eugene Fersen, The Fundamental Principles of Science of Being, page 349.

The world says ‘don’t discriminate,’ your Inner Courage says, ‘always discriminate’

Discrimination reflects both the human mind and the human spirit! The human mind usually views discrimination according to the current social mania. Currently the general concept of discrimination is based in fear and hatred. It feeds more of the same energies in society, causing protests, self-righteous stubbornness, anger and hatred.

Yet, the foremost objective of discrimination that comes into evidence is the development of love within us.

Polarized discrimination

There is division in the human mind. It sees right and wrong, yes and no, duality. It divides us from Harmony and our own Soul! And it divides us from each other, thus mental and emotional judgments against groups, etc.

Yet, the human spirit also discriminates ….. with distinction. Our Spirit, our own Real Self, always discriminates with distinction to manifest all our wonderful, soulful qualities ….. of Enthusiasm, Wisdom, Truth and Love.

The greater objective of discrimination is ……

To elevate the human mind to be conscious of our Unity ….. with Spirit ….. with Harmony. To be conscious of – All Life, Intelligence, Law and Love ….. And to Manifest ….. to Be …… in the ever present moment these qualities …… with every thought, every attitude, and every act of ours.

Discrimination with fear and hatred imprisons these qualities. But we will eventually seek relief from the pain of such a mistake. Yet, we need not suffer ….. it’s up to us to beneficially discriminate.

To enhance beneficial discrimination …..

  • Be Courageous and Observe yourself in a detached mental awareness ….. the good, the bad, and the ugly. Courage can empower You ….. to observe without getting involved in the emotions.
  • Choose to release fearful, egotistic thoughts and behaviors, keeping in mind that there are no secrets.

Consider using the practice of eliminating fearful thoughts, temptations and emotions outlined in the link just below whenever you feel negative energy rise within you.

Reaching Soul Vibrations – Lesson 23

  • Courageously accepting responsibility for yourself, for your own path in life, is Willingness that empowers You to transcend reason and embrace Love. It adds to your Strength and can help attract you to ….. Forgiveness, Understanding, and Love ….. opening you to higher levels of consciousness!

“WE SHOULD ALWAYS TRY TO FEEL LOVING TO OUR FELLOW MEN, TO EXPRESS OUR LOVE-NATURE EVERY INSTANT AS MUCH AS WE CAN.”

Eugene Fersen, Science of Being
  • Be grateful for the opportunities in Life and ….. Give ……the whole of your physical, mental and emotional qualities – All Life, Intelligence, Truth and Love.

In this way you construct Strength, Freedom and Happiness in your Earthly Career. You create conditions for your happiness and for others.

In the hope You always FourSquare discriminate and find Love close at hand, PortiaSLB

A finite moment leads to the Infinite… a paradox

By being in the moment and accepting the moment experience as it is in the present…..then we expand into the infinite Now. It seems a paradox.

Try an experiment. Focus on one thing, one moment at a time and consciously create happiness by thinking, intending, feeling those things you truly want.

For me it may be to be strong in health when I’m feeling weak. It may be feeling open and accepting when tempted to feel angry or impatient. I experience it and can release it, knowing it isn’t the Real Self and doesn’t benefit anyone. Then I can embrace uplifting feelings.

It may be feeling Loving towards all. To feel the warmth and tenderness in the heart that radiates to others and to the world. And this is being a conscious channel of Source. You expand from that emotion physically and mentally. Plus, you attract the same thing as you create in the moment with your thoughts, intentions and emotions.

The longer you hold your focus on uplifting emotions and realizations you expand into Infinite Consciousness. And by observing yourself in this state, you are creating a more stable awareness of your Inner Being.

Try the finite section experiment (taking things one at a time/bit by bit) and experience for yourself the freedom it brings … or perhaps you have already?

In the hope You find Love close at hand, PortiaSLB

“‘Like attract like’ is a Natural Law, functioning alike through the Physical, Mental and Emotional channels of the individual.”

Being a Positive Force in the World Through Emotional Contagion! Power of Emotions to Change Your Life, Part 8

Being a Positive Force in the World

Through Emotional Contagion!

Recently I was talking to someone on the phone and could tell they were ‘down’ which they attributed to the glumly weather, but after about twenty minutes of talking they said they felt like getting out to see a another friend. We synchronized emotionally, though there was no will power involved on my part. My purpose was to be a friend and convey consideration, care and love for them. So, in turn the person I was a friend to wanted to be a friend to someone else!

 We can be a positive force in this world through emotional contagion.

The Universal Law at work 

Have you ever noticed the more you smile the more other people around you smile?  There is real value in the emotion of smiling because, not only it is an experience of your own reality, but also it sets the tone for positive inception to influence other people’s reality! People relate to us, even in passing, through our body language, facial expressions, words, and tone of voice.

Through the Law of Attraction, we can synchronize with other people’s emotions in their energy fields and auras, unconsciously. Emotions are contagious!

We have been unconsciously conditioned to mimic other people’s expressions, tone of voice and body language. If we radiate emotions with qualities of love and happiness like a genuine smile, it attracts similar friendly emotions from others.

Others may find their innate love and return it to us, though it may be unconsciously. Nevertheless, when we manifest Love people will respond in kind eventually …… it is the Universal Law of Attraction, of Love. And that uplifting energy we originally sent out to others will eventually return to us increased. 

But, others can also be adversely effected by our emotional energy. Anger, hatred, disgust, resentment, jealousy, and worry are also contagious!

It is true of any fear-based emotion. Say at work, if we are doing something for someone as an obligation rather than freely giving abundance from our heart, it can attract the same energies from them, adversely affecting them. Plus, the same types of energies eventually return to us.

 The “thinker”

If we want to be a conscious, positive force in others lives, we must first be aware of our own emotions and motivations. In other words, know ourselves. 

Practice of Silence and the Mental Contact, meditation, helps quiet monkey chatter of the subconscious ego so that we are able to listen to our inner voice that recognizes the ego without getting snared in it.

If we are feeling down, we should be conscious of it and do our best to recognize it ….. and try to find the reason. It may be an emotional wound rooted in the past. Yet the essence of it is that the situation is not the way we think it should be. And, we are not doing what our loving heart Truly wants. Thus the depression and unhappiness.

Recognizing the emotional wound is just one step. Then we can accept it and release it. That way we don’t deepen it within ourselves and spread the same emotional energies to others.

You are a Power House!

We can live our life sleep walking, just moving through our day not knowing what a powerful force we are in the world. Being conscious, mindful of the moment, frees us to focus our attention on our deep felt emotions and motivations – our intents.

You can be a Light in this world. The ways are near endless, and everything counts. When you act sincerely from the Love and tenderness of your heart,  you are a positive force not only for yourself and others around you, but indeed for the world.

Love spreads. It’s contagious! 

In the hope You know the Love that You are, Portia SLB

Consider the Radiant Heart Exercise and Conscious Heart Practice to be a conscious positive force in the world through the emotion of Love.


“GIVE TO THE STRANGER THE RICHNESS OF THY SMILE,” is the gentle appeal of Love. What does it mean? It means that we should give even to the stranger whom we do not know, expressions of love….It is not the thing itself which counts, but the way the think is done or the way it is given.

Eugene Fersen, Science of Being, pages 26-7.


Flutters

ID-1008718

Flutters

We are constantly fluttering,
Becoming dumbfound
We listen to voices with no sound
Dream resolution in delusion
Speak words of confusion
All the while, tasting bitter feelings of collusion.

We oscillate, palpitate and fluctuate
Totally ignore and subordinate the beauty of the butterfly
Misunderstanding the need to identify
With that character to comprehend
The butterfly is not pretend,
And does help us to ascend.

As dangerous flutters abound
We fear the butterfly cannot withstand the pain
Believing it is foreordain
That we are set apart
Opposites, an unsubstantial counterpart
Like a shadow with no heart.

With Light and Love, Portia SLB

What do you ascertain?

A Dream

A Dream

 A Dream

Stone on my heart, heavy

with black underneath

No notice of twilight, deep

Cold and deserved frozen complete

 

Hands of time, still

with experience incomplete

Sweetness unravel memories, tear

  Ice and immure darkness begin to retreat

 

Question forms on my lips, why 

within light still burns
Smell a whisper of roses, sweet
Faint movement and beat

 

Do I dream, now?

Do I begin to feel?

Am I awakening? Hope.

 Is that gentle love that I feel?

With Light and Love, Portia SLB


“In the darkest hours of your life, when the stress of circumstance is at its crisis you have a Light to guide you and a Strength to help you support the burden.

Dance on water

DANCE ON WATER

Your reflection is rippled and distorted in the human mind,                                                     yet your Higher Self knows
You dance on water, You float on air!


You are a gentle soul that unfolds petal,                                                                                       by 1,000 petals
so that your tender heart is disclosed.


You are a friend, then foe, then Friend exposed.

You are a jewel in the silence,
a Light like the sun.

You are ‘I am’ and part of ‘I AM ONE.’

In the hope You find Love close at hand, PortiaSLB


“The Past cannot be changed; we have to take it as it is. But our Future is completely in our hands, and, if we start the right causes, should never occasion us any worry, as it will take care of itself because of the Law of Cause and Effect.”

The secret Love of a crisis – it’s not what you think!

Montserrat, Italy 2018 PSLB

The subconscious ego may be torn up and desperately distraught …. circles over and over in despair, depression, worry, and fear about the global and very personal issues we face now …… without finding any value in it at all.  Yet, there is value in everything, including the present challenges. 

Difficulties can challenge us to pause, ponder and contemplate …. to go within …… to seek joy and happiness. Isn’t it true that we seek strength, wisdom, freedom and harmony? Even the subconscious cries for freedom from misery. Urns for happiness. Pleads for strength and wisdom.  

The subconscious ego wants to reject the way things are now, and would much rather focus on the future or the past without fully experiencing life now. Yet, it’s an opportunity missed. So many, many opportunities missed to consciously experience life. Gone.

If we view every challenge, every problem, every opposition  …..  as an opportunity to find within us a greater response then …… we are encouraged to look within to find our sown strengths …… to rediscover our Soul’s Strength, Wisdom, Truth and Love.

Challenges can prompt us to pause, ponder, and become Silent …… and that’s when we are better able to look deep within and recognize our own Inner Real Self. We may find that we are in the moment fully ….. appreciating Life.

And there can be victory in our hearts ….. and this is a secret Love within us awakening ….. Unconditional Love and Joy.

Gratitude may arise for the awareness of what is happening. Not for the crisis, problem or opposition, rather gratitude for the awareness of serenity and love always being close at hand. Gratitude for the infinite opportunities in this moment. Gratitude for some higher conscious understanding, that may not be logical, rather something deeper and far reaching ….. life changing.

And we can know ….. that if we do fall when facing challenges, it is temporary because we have a deep drive within us to succeed in life. It may take a while and we can hit bottom. Yet, eventually we will, with the help of the Great Principle, find the courage to dust ourselves off and face life again ….. and this is a great gift of Unconditional Love.

In the hope You find Love close at hand, PortiaSLB


“And there are those who walk the Divine Road. No human help do they expect. At first their steps are handicapped. They have to fight ill-will, and apathy, and ignorance, and fear….And by and by, slowly, step after step they climb, overcoming obstacles along the way, until easier and broader turns the path on which they move onward.”

Eugene Fersen, Science of Being, pages 305 and 306.

Responding with Soul

Sure fired ways to create Happy Days!

Photo: PSLB Key West

The subconscious ego can hold us in frustration, lack, and unhappy times, yet a simple decision to rise above it can change everything and our reality can transform.

We are the creators of our reality …. with our attitudes, thoughts and behaviors. Your greatest asset for creating a happy life is yourself ….. your Inner spiritual will and Authentic Self. Remember that the Eternal is always within You, endlessly working for your happiness. You only need to allow it ….. allow all the uplifting Energy, Intelligence, Truth and Love to be in your consciousness and life.

And remember that everything …..everything we think, decide, or do returns to us! And this is also what we attract more of.

Here are some simple ways to create happy days …..

Start your day …….by going within! Take some time to be with yourself and know your loving heart, conscious awareness and inner strength. Do some deep breathing and contact Universal Life Energy, which works to harmonize body, mind and emotions.

Do an attitude check! If you start with an uplifting attitude it can stay with you throughout your day, motivating positive thoughts and behaviors. So consider telling yourself that today is full of happy potential ….. it’s an awesome day! Smile! You are activating the Law of Attraction!

Paint visualizations in your mind of your Happiness ….. what makes you happy and feel it as if it is right at this moment. Know for certain and write it, say it, be in that energy now. This is what you attract and create.

Have an attitude of gratitude. View challenges as opportunities to learn from and improve your well-being. And learn from your mistakes rather than circling in them.

Throughout the day allow yourself to be in the present moment. Accept the moment as it is. See the good in it. That simple decision can change your brain’s neurochemistry to a positive direction. Obsessive worry or constantly thinking the same thoughts, especially of the past, can keep us stuck in that frequency.

Listen to, dance to, sing to ….. feel good music ….. for example, “Happy” by Pharrell,I Got You (I Feel Good)” by Brown, “Marriage of Figaro” by Mozart,Largo al factotum’ by Rossini. It’s amazing how uplifting great music can be!

Dance ,,,,, exercise, eat healthy, and get plenty of sleep. When you feel good on one level it manifests in other levels ….. so if we eat healthy, exercise and get plenty of rejuvenating sleep it benefits our attitudes and behaviors to feel good and be happy!

Clear the clutter …… a simple environment helps release you from past energies, attitudes and memories, opening paths before you with fresh, uplifting energies.

Make the decision to listen to your Heart and be lead by Love. Live FourSquare – be enthusiastic, wise, accurate and loving in all that you do. It’ll build your self-esteem, confidence and attract more feel good opportunities for successes.

See the good in yourself and others. Be a Light in the world. Lend a hand, heart and mind to help others. Give the healing Energy to the world.

In the hope You paint your happy day now, PortiaSLB

“The Power of Love, surging with a quickened beat through the whole Race, is beginning to eat away the discrepancies in their individual natures by which their lack of balance was measured.”
