Eckhart Tolle and Mispelled Words

Waiting is a state of mind, the usual state of mind. Presence is when you're no longer waiting for the next moment, believing that the next moment will be more fulfilling than this one.

BRILLIANT man, Eckhart Tolle. He wrote two amazing books, "The Power of Now" and "A New Earth"
I haven't finished reading either of them, but what he has to say so far, is transforming and beautiful. He has opened up so many people's minds over here in the Western World, and it's spiritual teachers like him that are coming out and helping to transform this New Age. 

He reminds us of yin and yang, the tao, duality. You cannot have your beautiful, your gentle, your loving, your happiness, without your ugly, your aggressive, your hatred, your sadness. And you could sum it all up in terms of Light  or Dark, Love or Fear. So, don't live your life waiting all the time for the perfect moment to come along. They are all perfect moments. I saw the best bumper sticker today; it said "Relax, God is handling things."

Remember to relax, let go, and let God!!! :)

On another note, I have been writing in the spiritual forums on the worldwideweb recently. I discovered this site just last week, and I've talked to some really wonderful, light-filled, hearts. I'm glad I found this place, because I don't have many people in my life that take the same view points on life and the spiritual world. The funny thing I have noticed, however, writing on this blog and writing in the forums, has made me remember my grammar. I've always been very great at spelling and sort of a perfectionist when it comes to using the write "two, to, too," you get the idea. But I have noticed when I start to write spiritually, and I let my heart guide the words I type, I don't pay attention to spelling as much. A couple times I wrote hear when I should have wrote here. I think this is because words are just words. They have no real concept of what the heart and love really is. And when we become more in tune with the spirit. Words don't seem to matter as much. Silence can be so alive and sound so beautiful, words would never be able to explain it. The spirit is exactly the same. 

I hope everyone has a wonderful Tuesday. Sending you all my love and light. May the sunshine be bright when you wake in the morning!! Namaste :)

Smile! Everything is the Way it Should Be :)

I really love cats.... and Buddha :)
I just thought this was something that would make everyone smile! It always makes me smile. 
Today I am pondering a lot about peace in the world, rather, the lack thereof. So many disturbances in the universe lately, has me uneasy. I'm trying my hardest to stay positive and open to the light, but it feels like I've been going on and on forever, and I'm growing impatient!

I really believe that after Ascension, whether I am able to reach the higher dimensions or not, there will be less television sets and more peace :) What a wonderful world that will be to experience! Today I am really trying to focus on taking every step with a breath of peace, focusing my mind on the center core, and letting go of any negative thoughts that continue to perplex my brain. I'm trying not to cling to tightly to my spirituality either, though, because I think when I get too wrapped up in it, it becomes no better than negativity. Clinging is clinging, which will always lead to suffering, no way out of that one! hehe. 

Despite these hard times, I know in my heart that NOTHING is lacking at this moment. In the here and now, this present moment is a wonderful moment :)

Ice Cream Makes Everything Better :)

A Happy Picture from my Happy Friendly Book!!

Notice the repetition of, Love some more. Love is all you need!!
This to-do list is full of things that will light up and warm your soul. 
Make your own "real" to do list, and follow it!
Include those passions of yours that make you feel truly at peace, such as taking a walk or going for a run, eating ice cream, dancing, painting, etc... But make sure you save room on that to-list to laugh, notice kindness (and be kind yourself), and most of all,  LOVE.

The Trick is to Surrender to the Flow

My first post to this wonderful blog I am creating will help you get an idea of the inspiration to my name and title, surrender to the flow. The name comes from an amazing song by Phish, called Lizards. This song is also the inspiration for the title of my spiritual book called The Happy Friendly Book, in the song they mention The Helping Friendly Book. I made this book by composing a great number of spiritual and peace filled quotes with and pictures of many of the great spiritual teaches, Jesus, Buddha, Mother Teresa, Gandhi, etc...

Since I don't have the finances right now to print even one copy of this great compilation, I decided to create this blog to share the pieces of this book, and continue adding to it, so it is everlasting and full of not just my favorite spiritual quotes, but full of my spiritual thoughts and crazy randomness that makes me human :)

Please enjoy your stay here, and let the love and light shine through for you in the way that is right in your heart.
