the power of the ability to stop (or let go)

 

Dear soulsister,

Do YOU know where the world is going? Many say it seems the world is coming to an end, its moving towards destruction, its out of control. And yes, it is. All of that. But whilst that’s happening there is a movement in the other direction. A movement that won’t stop that, but a movement that’s laying the foundations for a new and better world. Whilst some are concerned that the world as we know it is heading down the gurglar it makes sense that for there to be new, the old has to go.

Soulsisters (and soulbrothers) are turning it around. They are saying ‘NO’. No, I’m not going down that path. No, I’m not going to do that any more. No, I’m not going to think or speak in that way any more. No, I’m not supporting that. They are waking up. They now see the damage that that way of being has done, and if it continues, what it will mean for them. They understand that their thoughts, words and actions create their destiny and they want a different one. Not only that, they want to create a different story, a different journey. They want to enjoy life, love life, be happy, live peacefully, be healthy. They want to live in harmony with others and nature. They don’t want happiness and peace just for themselves. They want it for everyone and everything. For this, they are prepared to take a stand, perhaps be unpopular or alone, and move against the tide.

The power to stop or to let go enables us to do this. It enables us to take stock of where on earth we are. If things are getting a little too heated, a little too out of hand, a little too uncomfortable, instead of giving in and going with the flow because we don’t want to cause trouble, or we don’t want to rock the boat, or we don’t want to draw attention to ourselves, or, we are bound by fear of survival, a soulsister with the power to stop, stops. She stops. She lets it all go. And she comes back to herself. To her soul. And in the place of soul, she decides where to go, what to do and how to do it. She chooses the path of the highest and most virtuous action she can. Why? Because she has learned that virtue brings happiness.

Virtue isn’t a word used or talked about very much these days. Its old fashioned. Its pure. And we haven’t wanted pure. We’ve wanted impure because we learned that impure often means looking or feeling ‘cool’, being ‘in’, getting attention, immediate pleasurable sensation, feeling ‘better than’, etc. We want happiness but whilst we think, speak and act without virtue, never in a million years will we be happy.

Living with virtue brings lasting happiness. There is no other way.

A soulsister knows this. She is in touch with her ‘self’ and it tells her. And she goes with that. This knowing gives her the strength to say ‘no’.

And so it is. With this power, soulsisters ARE changing the world.

 

Lots of love,

what type of happiness do you want?

Teacosy 3

Dearest soulsister,

There is no nourishment like the nourishment of happiness.

Happiness makes us feel good. It gives us energy and makes us sparkle. We get it from kindness and goodness and from being with people, pets and things we love, and doing the things that we love. We get it from achieving and attaining goals and aims in our lives, feeling successful and proud that we have faced challenges and hurdles and found a way over, through or around them. We get it from buying the latest gadget or something that is going to make our lives easier. And we can get it at the expense of another’s happiness; we can feel happy that we won or got more than another person.

Happiness can be superficial and temporary or it can be the type that is everlasting. The trick is to be able to discern which type it is. Always question, where your happiness is coming from. If your source of happiness is material, your happiness will be temporary because matter is temporary – it breaks, can be lost and it disintegrates – it may last a day, a week, a year or a lifetime, but only that. If your happiness comes at the expense of another’s, also it will be temporary as this is dirty happiness. Dirty happiness never lasts because your true state of being is to be clean. The dirt will have to go. If the source of your happiness is spiritual – based on an exchange or experience of virtue, your happiness will be everlasting because this is who you really are – you are adding to yourself, not taking away – and so your happiness will last for many lifetimes – for eternity.

So be careful what happiness you choose. Ask yourself, what type of happiness is it that you want?

until then…..with love,
