The following Quotes are from Abraham-Hicks
“While it is obvious that a good-feeling body makes for a more pleasant physical experience, we want you to understand that finding pleasant things to focus upon also makes for a good-feeling body.” ~Abraham-Hicks
However, most humans are approaching the subject of their physical well-being in a backward manner. Most people who are experiencing physical ailments let their physical condition dictate their mental attitude. In other words, their emotions are responsive to their physical condition. When they are in pain, they offer emotions of frustration, worry, anger, or fear. They want the condition to improve so that their emotional state can improve. ~Abraham-Hicks
Any illness, or departure from physical well-being, begins at a cellular level—but the overwhelming propensity of your cells is that of thriving. All day, every day, your cells are reclaiming balance at such refined and subtle levels that most people are completely unaware of the power and intelligence of their cellular bodies.~Abraham-Hicks
Focusing upon good-feeling objects of attention is the most effective way of providing the optimum environment for allowing unhindered cellular communication and the ultimate thriving of your physical body. ~Abraham Hicks
We are inwardly coded to be and do that which is the most magnificent, creative possibility for our lifetime. ~Marianne Williamson
More Quotes About Worry and Letting it Go
“Worrying is carrying tomorrow’s load with today’s strength- carrying two days at once. It is moving into tomorrow ahead of time. Worrying doesn’t empty tomorrow of its sorrow, it empties today of its strength.” ― Corrie ten Boom
“How would your life be different if…You stopped worrying about things you can’t control and started focusing on the things you can? Let today be the day…You free yourself from fruitless worry, seize the day and take effective action on things you can change.” ― Steve Maraboli
“If there is no solution to the problem then don’t waste time worrying about it. If there is a solution to the problem then don’t waste time worrying about it.”
― Dalai Lama XIV
Confucius said: “In the eating of coarse rice and the drinking of water, the using of one’s elbow for a pillow, joy is to be found.”
How so? Isn’t there more joy in an elaborate meal, some good wine and a soft pillow? More pleasure and comfort, certainly, but not necessarily joy. The simple and quiet things are more conducive to joy. Why? Because instead of absorbing all your attention, they allow you to sense something that is usually missed, due to sensory overload and excessive thinking. And what is that? A background sense of aliveness, of presence, of being. That’s joy, and also true happiness. It’s always there, but most people are not aware of it. Unaware of that background within, they look to the foreground, to externals, for their happiness. And then life becomes really frustrating….
Be well, be at peace, be happy.
With love, Eckhart Tolle
Two thousand years ago Marcus Aurelius wrote:
“Our anger or annoyance are more detrimental to us than the things themselves which anger or annoy us”.
Most of the time, you will find this to be true. Negativity strengthens the ego, but it weakens you. It prevents true intelligence from arising and dealing with situations and people. When you recognize its futility and harmfulness, it begins to subside. You can then face and accept situations and people as they are, without this unnecessary inner baggage. This is the beginning of wisdom in action.
THE COURAGE TO WAIT by Pema Chodron
“When you’re like a keg of dynamite about to go off, patience means just slowing down at that point—just pausing—instead of immediately acting on your usual, habitual response. You refrain from acting, you stop talking to yourself, and then you connect with the soft spot. But at the same time you are completely and totally honest with yourself about what you are feeling. You’re not suppressing anything; patience has nothing to do with suppression. In fact, it has everything to do with a gentle, honest relationship with yourself.”
