Inspiration and Spiritual Stories, Catherine practices the Law of Attraction and Universal Laws, The Secret, on How to Attract your Soul Mate and live a life of Peace and Joy- “Love Thyself with all your Heart and Soul just because You Exist and nothing more or less than that. You Are Love,” by Catherine, her Inspirational Quote for Valentine’s Day 2012.

Dear God,

It was not all of a sudden – but it was a clear and definite departure- a kind of resolve and that somehow a goodbye was released. I felt it first, but it was distant. He was distant. He no longer caressed my hands. He had a resolved – not to be – here – with me. He had a puzzling energy. I could not comprehend nor do I want to. I was not prepared, I am not ready. What am I to do?

Because of my asking, wanting and desiring, I received a gift – a gift is not a gift until it is received. I received a second gift. I am a grateful receiver. I receive a gift of understanding. I understood.

I cried for many hours, many days, many months, and then a third gift came. I let go and I understood. I understood and I mourned – the third gift. The gift of mourning to release, I understood, I let go, and I mourned.

Wherever we were, driving, or whatever we were doing, we were always hand-in-hand and he caressed my hand exclusively. I felt his kindness through and through. I fell in love with him. He told me there are many people I can love. He said to channel the love I have for him to the rest of the human family. I learned to focus the first gift of sweetness and kindness, innocent Love, and because I am a grateful receiver I gave freely. I understood. I let go of my love for him and I released it to my human family.

The first gift penetrating still in my very soul, because of my asking and wanting, and desiring for more knowledge, more understanding, more clarity, and because I am a grateful receiver, I received another gift of higher clarity and of understanding on still another higher plane of understanding – the Art of Allowing. He is free to be and I am free to be as well.

Love is Love. You cannot stop it, hold it, contain it, or keep it in, hide it or bury it, or lock it in place or lock it in a box or lock it in your heart. Love is the expression of life. Love must be lived. Love must be released into the Universe and with it the rest of the human family is glorified. Love and life is to be lived in all of its glory, in all its faces and expressions.

– It brings a smile to a child
– It brings wholeness to the soul
– It brings good things to those recipient of Love
– It brings expression of life; the flowers bloom at just the right time to express its beauty to the beholder of the moment
– It brings reality and meaning to why we are here in this time and space.

And so I am here, My Darling, My Love, to express this Love for you, this Love for life,

this Love for humanity, this Love of Living in this brief moment of Life.

Because of my gifts and I am a grateful receiver, I learned that I cannot be less than Loving.

I cannot hide my Love for you for I am Love

I am in Love with this Life and of living

This Love for Life is alive and present in every moment.

I cannot be less than I am, I cannot be less than Love, I am Love.

And so on this New Year’s Day, I found my freedom.

I am free. I am free to Love,
I am free to express,
I am free to live it,
I am free to be only and only to Love – to

Love and Live on Purpose.

The path to Spirituality is not about holding on or holding in, it is about letting go,

I let go and l give my Love to all of you and

I Let God in.

Your Catherine


My commentary:

You may replace the word God with the name you use for the Higher Being, some may refer to it as Alah, Buddha, Jehovah, My Lord, it is you who create.

Love is a very touchy subject for most of us, it is in the same ranking as health and money. We grew up observing that we are all exclusively in love with just one person and that is good because we live in a monogamous society. We are not taught though to love the human family as a whole, but no matter, I learn to focus my love outside of who I desired, and at that time he was not ready to return that love to me not that he did not love me, there were other competing circumstances because of this I was able to let go expecting nothing in return, but I loved anyway and never stopped loving him and we did not stop seeing each other on another level of love. Once I mourned and released that exclusivity of my love for him, I was able to live my life in a state of peace and bliss. I did not compromise. Love is Love. I reached a higher level of understanding. Transcendental Meditation really help me throughout all of this. The writings you are reading here in my blog are all created from a transcendental state. All throughout I was in love and in love with life. Four years later, my soul mate and I enjoy our togetherness and our life is full of sweetness, kindness, innocence, pure love, respect, harmony, and peace. We call our home, our sanctuary.

Every relationship must be in a sacred way, in a holy place, and in the celebration of life. Whereever you are, look around you, love for the sake of Love, for the sake of you, me, and others.

Some days I would leave before him, after we’ve shared our morning tea, to teach my Yoga class, and I would come home, and he had already left for work, I would come home before him and I would find half of an orange or an apple or half a chocolate, he left it for me to share with me. We share everything. I would laugh sometime because I would tell him that if I ate half of everything I would end up as tall as him. I wrote the article about the meaning of two, two representing Unity, not two but one, a Perfect One. This reminds me of that piece of writing under http://followcatherine.com/roasted-red-peppers-and-eggplant-a-dichotomy-of-two-but-really-one-a-perfect-one/

Word Clearing: Mourn: to feel or express grief or sorrow

I am a practitioner of the Law of Attraction for many years now. The book I use to study this subject matter and I consider my bible is “Ask and It is Given” by Jerry and Esther Hicks. The fourth gift I mention here is the Art of Allowing (which is the 3rd Step of the Law of Attraction process). So here are some excerpts for you.

Reference: Art of Allowing

Art of Allowing: The practiced process of deliberately choosing your subjects of attention, with a keen awareness of how that perspective feels to you. By deliberately choosing thoughts that feel good, you achieve vibrational alignment with your Source of Well-Being.

Rediscover the Art of Allowing Your Natural Well-Being
We want you to rediscover your innate ability to allow the Well-Being of this Universe to flow steadily and unrestricted into your experience, and we call this discipline the Art of Allowing. It is the Art of Allowing the Well-Being-which makes up every particle of that which you are and that which you come from-to continue to flow through you as you continue to be. The Art of Allowing is the art of no longer resisting the Well-Being that you deserve; the Well-Being that is natural; the Well-Being that is your legacy, your Source, and your very Being


Chapter 10
The Three Steps to Whatever You Want to Be, Do, or Have
The Creative Process is conceptually a simple one. It consists of just three steps:

• Step 1 (your work): You ask.
• Step 2 (not your work): The answer is given.
• Step 3 (your work): The answer, which has been given, must be received or allowed (you have to let it in

Step 1: You Ask:

Because of the wonderful and diverse environment in which you are focused, Step 1 comes easily and automatically, for this is how your natural preferences are born. Everything-from your subtle or even unconscious desires to clear, precise, vivid ones- results from the contrasting experiences of your day-to¬day life. Desires (or asking) are the natural by-product of your exposure to this environment of fantastic variety and contrast. And so, Step 1 comes naturally.

Step 2: The Universe Answers:

Step 2 is a simple step for you, for it is not your work at all. Step 2 is the work of the Non-Physical, the work of the GOD Force. All things that you ask for, large and small, are immediately understood and fully offered, without exception. Every point of Consciousness has the right and the ability to ask, and all points of Consciousness are honored and responded to immediately. When you ask, it is given. Every time. Your “asking” is sometimes spoken with your words, but more often it emanates from you vibrationally as a constant stream of personally honed preferences, each building on the next, and each one respected and answered.

Every question is answered. Every desire is given. Every prayer is answered. Every wish is granted. But the reason that many would argue with that truth, holding up examples of unfulfilled desires from their own life experiences, is because they have not yet understood and completed the very important Step 3-for without the completion of this step, the existence of Steps 1 and 2 could go unnoticed.

Step 3: You Allow It In:
Step 3 is the application of the Art of Allowing. It is really the reason your guidance system exists. It is the step whereby you tune the vibrational frequency of your Being to match the vibrational frequency of your desire. In the same way that your radio tuner must be set to match the frequency of the broadcasting station you desire to hear, the vibrational frequency of your Being must match the frequency of your desire. And we call that the Art of Allowing-that is, allowing what you are asking for. Unless you are in the receiving mode, your questions, even though they have been answered, will seem unanswered to you; your prayers will not seem to be answered, and your desires will not be fulfilled-not because your wishes have not been heard, but because your vibrations are not a match, so you are not letting them in.

PS:
I am resending this Blog to all of you on this Happy Valentines Day. Thank you for all of your glorious comments. I am grateful. I am inspired to keep writing as they flow from my thoughts, to flow to my hand, and pen, then onto paper and to share them with you.

Love Live, Live Love (LLLL)

Roasted Red Peppers and Eggplant, A Dichotomy

Roasted Red Peppers & Eggplant, A Dichotomy

October 22, 2007

My Love,

What a great weekend!

Last night I was inspired to cook. I prepared the food with you in mind and the feelings of Joy I receive daily by your example.

– Roasted red peppers soaked in olive oil, soy sauce, apple cider, vinegar, and lemon
– Roasted eggplant in olive oil, garlic, and salt to taste
– Pita bread

Please enjoy. Warm the bread to awaken it. Add lemon if it’s too salty for your palate.
( I did not use a knife, I used only my hands to prepare the food)

My appreciation for you brought me here to this present moment. You’ve also inspired me to write so here are my thoughts for the day.

For now, I am soaked in love and I am loving it. I am living in the Flow.

I live now in accordance with my nature. I do not go against the way of things. I act in harmony with the present moment to connect and know the truth of just what to do.

It is called Living in the Flow in this temporary world of many changes and changing – the physical world of “10,000 things” as Lao Tzu calls it.

I focus my attention not on the food, the creation. Rather, I try to be aware in the silent knowing of what’s behind all acts of creation. We cannot know the Creator, if we focus on the creation.

I purposely did not remove the seeds from the one eggplant. The eggplant offers a silky texture and pleasant fragrance. Joined with garlic, it gives you that “bite” reminding me of the duality and dichotomy of the Universe, and yet it is all one.

So watch out, the garlic has a strong taste and the eggplant its opposing flavor. The mixture of apple cider, vinegar and lemon is mildly calmed by the soy sauce. The olive oil is the equalizer.

So I turned inward and experience the essence of the One who allowed this eggplant to emerge from a tiny seed. I look at life as going beyond this worldly perspective, to live from the inner knowing that our true essence is not of the world (being in the world), but not of this world of “10,000 things”.

On an aside, I am beginning to get the idea of the word “Two”, now seems funny to me these days.

The word “Two” keeps reminding me of its Unity. In the end, not Two but really One. Just the opposite end of the pole of creation. We are all a Perfect One, Perfect Creation, Perfect Love, Perfect Silent knowing, Joy!

Catherine

oooooxxxxx

Here is the 8th verse of the The Tao Te Ching,

Living in the Flow

The supreme good is like water,

Which nourishes all things without trying to.

It flows to low places loathed by all men,

Therefore, it is like the Tao

Live in accordance with the nature of things,

In dwelling, be close to the land.

In meditation, go deep in the heart.

In dealing with others, be gentle and kind.

Stand by your word.

Govern with equity.

Be timely in choosing the right moment.

One who lives in accordance with nature

does not go against the way of things.

He moves in harmony with the present moment,

Always knowing the truth of just what to do.

My commentary:

You want to savor reading the 8th verse, read it slowly, and let it seep in your tongue where we have tons of saliva, attached to flavors and emotions, that’s why kissing is so good.

After practicing my TM (Transcendental Meditation) in the mornings, I read a book or maybe two and from the transcendent state (state beyond thought or thinking, thinking state, or busy mind). From the transcendent state, it is easy to write, where your thoughts are most powerful, and is coming from what I can describe, inspiration. From this state my understanding becomes deeper, on a cellular level. We have trillions of cells, each one a point of consciousness, intelligent, and capable of achieving its own intelligent balance, without our say so.

Because I savor and practice the inspirations from the books I read, it was easy to write what I have just shared with you on this piece of inspired writing, I call Roasted Red Peppers and Eggplant, a dichotomy of Two, but Really One, a Perfect One.

If you like what you read here, I recommend reading:

Dr. Wayne Dyer’s book,Change your Thoughts, Change your Life

Here’s a reference from Wikipedia:

Laozi (Western translation = Lao Tzu) is traditionally regarded as the author of the Daodejing (Tao Te Ching), though the identity of its author(s) and/or compiler(s) has been debated throughout history. It is one of the most significant treatises in Chinese cosmogony. As with most other ancient Chinese philosophers, Laozi often explains his ideas by way of paradox, analogy, appropriation of ancient sayings, repetition, symmetry, rhyme, and rhythm.

The Tao Te Ching, often called simply Laozi after its reputed author, describes the Dao (or Tao) as the source and ideal of all existence: it is unseen, but not transcendent, immensely powerful yet supremely humble, being the root of all things. According to the Daodejing, humans have no special place within the Dao, being just one of its many (“ten thousand”) manifestations. People have desires and free will (and thus are able to alter their own nature). Many act “unnaturally”, upsetting the natural balance of the Dao. The Daodejing intends to lead students to a “return” to their natural state, in harmony with Dao. Language and conventional wisdom are critically assessed. Taoism views them as inherently biased and artificial, widely using paradoxes to sharpen the point.

Word Clearing:

Cosmogony-definition: Cosmogony, or cosmogeny, is any scientific theory concerning the coming into existence or origin of the universe, or about how reality came to be.

Dichotomy: a division into two especially mutually exclusive or contradictory groups or entities

I wish You All Health, All Wealth, and All Love!

Love Live, Live Love

A Lesson in Love in One Day


Follow Catherine Your Source of Inspiration in 2012 and Beyond




[yframe url=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0knKOWhqvkM’]

I went to Lima to go dancing on a Halloween night and as I stood there, this woman asked me what I do because I look so fit, and I told her I teach Yoga. So this woman flops down on my chair, whoosh, so fast, she must have drunk too much, and she proceeds to slowly tell me she got separated from her friends. She was very apologetic even in her state, she was aware of her true self. She was very respectful and conscious that she had taken over my seat without asking permission. I told her that she may sit for as long as she wants. Her hands now covering her face from embarrassment. I told her that she would feel better if she rubbed her “third eye” gently, the space between her eyebrows. She felt better and seemed to calm down, still aware of her actions, still apologizing, she said find me on Facebook, she gave me her name, and I said I would.

Westerners have this concept that when you say you practice or teach Yoga, the immediate reaction is “Ahh.. you do those difficult poses” it’s so hard for me to do those, I want to though,” and “good for you.”

And yet the asanas (poses) is only one of the components of Yoga.

There are two aspects of the spiritual practice:

Abhyasa – practice
Vairagya – renunciation

There are Four Aims of Life:

Dharma – observation of spiritual discipline
Artha – creation of a balanced life
Kama- enjoyment of the fruits of one’s labor
Moksa – liberation

The Five Afflictions:

Avidya – spiritual ignorance
Asmita – price
Raga – desire
Dvesa – aversion
Abhinivesa – fear of death

Then the supreme hierarchy is The Eight-Limb Path of Yoga. And if I show this to you in a diagram, just imagine the spokes on a wheel, eight of them meeting from inward to outward completing a circle, a circle of life.

The Eight Limb Path of Yoga are:

1. Yamas – the Five Moral Restraints –
a. Ahimsa – non violence
b. Satya – truthfulness
c. Asteya – non stealing
d. Brahmacarya –moderation
e. Aparigraha – non hoarding

2. Niyamas –the Five Observances
a. Sauca – purity
b. Santosa – contentment
c. Tapas- zeal, austerity
d. Svadhyaya – self-study
e. Isvara=pranidhana – devotion to a higher power

3. Asana – Postures
4. Pranayama – Mindful Breathing
5. Pratyahara – Turning Inward
6. Dharana – Concentration
7. Dhyana – Meditation
8. Samadhi – Union of the Self with Object of Meditation

This is just a short lesson of what we do not see as Yoga in the West. As you can see there’s much more to Yoga, a living breathing life of its own woven into this living of life. As for me, Yoga is the study of balance, the study of love, and the living of Love in action.

This past week certainly had been a lesson in love for me. I heard someone say (and I can’t remember who said it) that “you are nobody until someone loves you”, and I am not saying I agree with this or not.

It certainly hits home for some of us who are having challenges in their current relationship, especially for me this week.

There are times when the one you love is distant. There are those times when you just want that special someone to hold your hand, hug you, and kiss you, or call you, or maybe text you. And if it is not forthcoming- it could devastate you, depending on how low you have put yourself into the emotional path, spiraling downward. This has been a lesson that I have worked through and certainly another revelation in the study of human emotions.

Look no further, the answer is always within you.

I read several books a week, most of which are second, or third, even fourth reading of the same books. All of which contribute to my understanding of why I am here in this time space reality. Knowing that I agreed to be here doesn’t help much when you have the need to be loved.

Keeping my mind focused in the moment. It’s our home, to live life in the moment, experiencing them all, so we may know what we don’t want and get closer to what we want.

So, what am I wanting? I thought I needed someone to love me and I have the urge for that someone to show affection for me in that moment of need. And really, the truth, after much contemplation, is that I have become out of alignment to who I truly am. What I forget in these moments of misalignment, is that, I become attached to expecting something, from someone who has no idea what I am wanting because they have their own emotional guidance system, their own thoughts, and they are creating for themselves first and I could never and cannot ever control that. It’s in these moments of need, a false need that you stop your spiritual growth.

Every relationship, every encounter, with a human Being must be holy. I must keep my eyes above me, in God’s eye view, look around and see who is with me and celebrate with them taking nothing personally, removing from our consciousness and vocabulary the words struggle, need, worry, unmet expectations, alone-ness.

The easiest way to do this is to wrap our mind into the thinking that whatever we do, it must be in a holy space, in a sacred way, and in the celebration of life, – my life and yours.

A good friend sent me a chain email. The story goes and I am paraphrasing, that this man was gathering his wife’s belonging, clothing and found a package especially wrapped, a silk underwear, he had given her 8 or 9 years ago, with his wife’s handwriting “save for a special day”. He thought it was appropriate as he was preparing a box for his wife to take to her funeral, his wife had just died. This changed the way he lives now, living in the moment, doing things now, not later, working less hours, and enjoying life more.

The moment we become out of alignment of who we truly are, whole and perfect, strong and powerful, abundant and prosperous, loving and beloved, harmonious, at peace and so very, very happy, we become disconnected from our Source.

What are you wanting? The question must be, who are you waiting for?

The answer is “we are the ones we’ve been waiting for”. We are the answer to all our questions.

Really, truly, we keep looking outside ourselves, really, truly, the reality is we are our own soul mate and we need look no further. When you have become out of alignment with your own soul mate, is when we go outside for our answers. Our answers are always within us.

Namaste!

A lesson of Love –

Love thyself with all your heart and mind just because you exist and nothing more than that.

Love Live, Live Love

Catherine

PS. I want to share with you these 2 declarations to replace an old belief system. These are great declarations especially if you are having doubts and challenges with your current relationships, so make it your stable datum.

1) Everything is neutral, and nothing has meaning except for the meaning I give it.

2) Nothing is more important than that I be happy! And I repeat, Nothing is more important than that I be happy!

Stable datum – Until one selects one datum, one factor, one particular in a confusion of particles, the confusion continues. The one thing selected and used becomes the stable datum for the remainder.

You can read the whole write up on this at:

My commentary:

I chose to use this doctrine because until you decide what is right for you or until you decide what makes you happy, your turmoil continues and your life is ruled by that turmoil, until you decide to be in control of your inner dialogue. And this stable datum need not be the right one because you can change them as they become applicable to you or more in harmony with the peace and happiness you desire.

The declarations I suggested above will put you in a harmonious peaceful path. If you are given the choice between being right or being happy, which would you choose?

I choose, I would rather be happy.

I wish you safe travel, smooth flowing traffic, great parking spaces, attracting harmonious relationships, and experiencing unending, unspeakable, outrageous Joy.

Roasted Red Peppers and Eggplant, a dichotomy

October 22, 2007

My Love,

What a great weekend!

Last night I was inspired to cook. I prepared the food with you in mind and the feelings of Joy I receive daily by your example.

– Roasted red peppers soaked in olive oil, soy sauce, apple cider, vinegar, and lemon
– Roasted eggplant in olive oil, garlic, and salt to taste
– Pita bread

Please enjoy.  Warm the bread to awaken it. Add lemon if it’s too salty for your palate.
( I did not use a knife, I used only my hands to prepare the food)

My appreciation for you brought me here to this present moment. You’ve also inspired me to write so here are my thoughts for the day.

For now, I am soaked in love and I am loving it. I am living in the Flow.

I live now in accordance with my nature. I do not go against the way of things. I act in harmony with the present moment to connect and know the truth of just what to do.

It is called Living in the Flow in this temporary world of many changes and changing – the physical world of “10,000 things” as Lao Tzu calls it.

I focus my attention not on the food, the creation. Rather, I try to be aware in the silent knowing of what’s behind all acts of creation. We cannot know the Creator, if we focus on the creation.

I purposely did not remove the seeds from the one eggplant. The eggplant offers a silky texture and pleasant fragrance. Joined with garlic, it gives you that “bite” reminding me of the duality and dichotomy of the Universe, and yet it is all one.

So watch out, the garlic has a strong taste and the eggplant its opposing flavor. The mixture of apple cider, vinegar and lemon is mildly calmed by the soy sauce. The olive oil is the equalizer.

So I turned inward and experience the essence of the One who allowed this eggplant to emerge from a tiny seed. I look at life as going beyond this worldly perspective, to live from the inner knowing that our true essence is not of the world (being in the world), but not of this world of “10,000 things”.

On an aside, I am beginning to get the idea of the word “Two”, now seems funny to me these days.

The word “Two” keeps reminding me of its Unity. In the end, not Two but really One. Just the opposite end of the pole of creation. We are all a Perfect One, Perfect Creation, Perfect Love, Perfect Silent knowing, Joy!

Here is the 8th verse of the The Tao Te Ching,
Living in the Flow

The supreme good is like water,
Which nourishes all things without trying to.
It flows to low places loathed by all men,
Therefore, it is like the Tao

Live in accordance with the nature of things,
In dwelling, be close to the land.
In meditation, go deep in the heart.
In dealing with others, be gentle and kind.
Stand by your word.
Govern with equity.
Be timely in choosing the right moment.

One who lives in accordance with nature
does not go against the way of things.
He moves in harmony with the present moment,
Always knowing the truth of just what to do.

My commentary:

You want to savor reading the 8th verse, read it slowly, and let it seep in your tongue where we have tons of saliva, attached to flavors and emotions, that’s why kissing is so good.

After practicing my TM (Transcendental Meditation) in the mornings, I read a book or maybe two and from the transcendent state (state beyond thought or thinking, thinking state, or busy mind). From the transcendent state, it is easy to write, where your thoughts are most powerful, and is coming from what I can describe, inspiration. From this state my understanding becomes deeper, on a cellular level. We have trillions of cells, each one a point of consciousness, intelligent, and capable of achieving its own intelligent balance, without our say so.

Because I savor and practice the inspirations from the books I read, it was easy to write what I have just shared with you on this piece of inspired writing, I call Roasted Red Peppers and Eggplant, a dichotomy of Two, but Really One, a Perfect One.

If you like what you read here,  I recommend reading:
Dr. Wayne Dyer’s book,Change your Thoughts, Change your Life

Here’s a reference from Wikipedia:
Laozi (Western translation = Lao Tzu) is traditionally regarded as the author of the Daodejing (Tao Te Ching), though the identity of its author(s) and/or compiler(s) has been debated throughout history. It is one of the most significant treatises in Chinese cosmogony. As with most other ancient Chinese philosophers, Laozi often explains his ideas by way of paradox, analogy, appropriation of ancient sayings, repetition, symmetry, rhyme, and rhythm.
The Tao Te Ching, often called simply Laozi after its reputed author, describes the Dao (or Tao) as the source and ideal of all existence: it is unseen, but not transcendent, immensely powerful yet supremely humble, being the root of all things. According to the Daodejing, humans have no special place within the Dao, being just one of its many (“ten thousand”) manifestations. People have desires and free will (and thus are able to alter their own nature). Many act “unnaturally”, upsetting the natural balance of the Dao. The Daodejing intends to lead students to a “return” to their natural state, in harmony with Dao. Language and conventional wisdom are critically assessed. Taoism views them as inherently biased and artificial, widely using paradoxes to sharpen the point.

Word Clearing:
Cosmogony-definition: Cosmogony, or cosmogeny, is any scientific theory concerning the coming into existence or origin of the universe, or about how reality came to be.

Dichotomy: a division into two especially mutually exclusive or contradictory groups or entities

I wish You All Health, All Wealth, and All Love!
Love Live, Live Love
