PERFECT! These are the very thoughts to get rid of! See?

Oh, the mind, the lower ego self, the devil... is a tricky thing...it's job is to take us away from
happiness and joy that is ours for the taking....but offer us
temporary 'things' that brings us 'temporary' happiness.

This is the first start...never letting ridiculous thoughts get
any room to spin their silly falsehoods in our minds.

Once free from their grip...ah...it is the beginning of fresh air coming into our perception....all of a sudden
you can see clearly...without
the window being smudged with unreality.

This life has a loving presence everywhere around us and in us...
GET TO THAT perception....
Clean the window by getting rid of silly thoughts.
It takes a conscious effort to make this come about.
Never get discouraged...another trick of the mind!
Get to know the enemy...the mind and all it's various tricks!

Funny, a big change happened because of a thread here started by
'Divine Love' who doesn't post here anymore.
I learned for the first time (around 2011 here) about the soul transforming power that God's,
our Father's, our Creator's Divine Love has....
and how do we receive it?

Asking. Asking 'Him' (Who has no gender) directly...no begging or crying ....just ask with the faith that
He will give it to you...and maybe when you least expect it.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Regarding not having attachments and fears..I will add worries,
a manifestation of fear...this is what you have to do....
Stop the mind from having any thoughts that are fear based in any way.
Period.
It is a trick of the mind...this is where you/we must practice 'Thought Control'.
When you begin to stop worry...you will see how often the mind
has gotten into the habit to worry...to fear about being late, how will the rent be paid,
how will I ever get this job...and on and on it goes.

When it does this...you simply stop it and talk to God...Tell Him ,
"I know it has been said to 'give you my burdens'...Well, fear, anxiety, worry are big burdens...
I am going to trust YOU to take care of
ALL my fears, insecurities and cares."

Then, you stop...you stop every thought that is about the fear of something.
Anything.

I still have more to say...but, in a pm later...ok?
This is enough to digest...and it is what I did in 2006...so it
is part of my story you asked for.
I completely and totally began trusting God in every way...for e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g ....bar none.
And 'He' never failed me...ever.
Your trust will grow so that you will rely on nothing else.

Then, because this is the Meditation Section....you take your heart
into your meditation and direct it to your Source...I simply call God.

Thank you, Miss Hepburn. I have been doing similar things you advise the last few days - every time fear, worry, or other thoughts or images come up (and sometimes they are sneaky - they come in form of me trying to solve things in my mind), I say " God (or Universe, or Source -I use those interchangeably), please help me to surrender this to you. I am willing to let it go." I also say what moretocome says: "I don't know HOW or WHEN, but I know that you will take care of this for me. I am glad to have more ways to say it with your help. Yes, worries and fears do feel like burdens, and I am gladly put them into Source's hands. The first day I did that the whole day, I felt kind of numb, but now it feels better.
Just a few days, and I already had some things in terms of manifestations moving, however I do not pay much attention to those as I do not want to get attached to circumstances and grab onto starting to solve things on my own again just because now it seems to be more doable. I want to stay focused on love and surrender. Relaxing into God's arms.
I will be looking for your message in my inbox.

I get busy...I may just write here in the public area.

I do not want you to get attached, either....however, 'attachment' is more of a Buddhist concept...then,
we have the Catholic obsession with humility!
My God, BE HAPPY!...rejoice in manifestations that have happened!
They make us confident in our own power....
our own power is a 'given power' ...a gift from our Father....be happy you are discovering it!
I say. Yay!

I see, what you mean. Of course, I say thanks and love it, however my habit is to start planning and get all wound up into that instead of allowing things to happen and flow, and trust my Source. Because when I do that, I am getting attached again. If I do it lightly and with joy that would be a great thing. But I can feel where I overstep the lightness, and fears and worry come. Because I was manifesting or more exactly allowing things before too, but then because of the mentioned reasons, they would turn out to be not what I really enjoyed. So I let them go, and now they are still pursuing me, but I do not want them back, and at the same time I know, resisting is not the way, so I need to surrender that too.
Public is good, because we all can benefit from it.

Ok...you do see the way you are speaking is not the way to get to
where you want to be...right?
LOL...it takes time to recognize these goofy thought patterns!

This is the mind-talk...the thoughts that should be gotten rid of.
They seem innocent, don't they?
That is the trick of this very smart mind!
It will do anything to keep you away from 100% realization of Reality.
(Reality being eternal love, happiness, wisdom and joy...)

Keep only thoughts of love, kindness, goodness, positivity ...
remembering the Truth of this world...that there is NO where
where you could ever possibly escape the love that is all around you...
loving you so much if you unzipped yourself you would find it hiding right there
within you wanting to be THAT close to you.

It is flowing like a faucet, like a waterfall that never stops...
just don't take your cup from the faucet!

You are in a hurricane all around you of goodness and happiness and well-wishes...
learn to be still and open to it!!!

Yes, that's why I just keep surrendering any time worry thought floats by.

For beginners losing interest in this thing called ''meditating''...

Create a feeling of love and happiness inside you before you sit and 'meditate'.

How? Think of wonderful moments past or future or just in your imagination.
Feeel the feeeling....hang onto that...breathe with that feeling in your chest
and a smile on your face.
Better than some arduous, boring, discouraging silencing of thoughts!!
And then giving up.

It's for beginners, so they will look forward to stolen moments of musing, daydreaming of love...
later you can move into what some consider boring nothingness...hahaha

Howdy and bringing this up again! I'm sitting in the office and no one is here and I could flip through a magazine but I'm always being nudged to 'sit in silence' or meditate if you will. I did not want to google meditation yet again and scan over meditations threads to confuse me so I came to this one because it's the one that speaks to me. Thank you Miss H and others here!

I often feel as though I'm in a tug of war with wanting to sit in silence or bask in love with the divine ...and then the ego barging in with its profanities and negativity and I quickly get up and move around and do something else...impatience screams at me, you know all that icky stuff... so I came here for advice and encouragement and instruction before I park my butt and bask in love or attempt to but no, scratch that...I'm going to bask in love.

See? Why call it meditation when you can call it,
"Basking in love with the Divine"!

This is what I'm talkin' about.
