No fixed position

What does it mean to have no fixed position?

Is it a lack of faith or understanding?

Not this or that,

No fixed position is simply an awareness of what is,

Without anything added to it

An acceptance of the whole

From no fixed position we are free and without conflict

Seeing all as it is

As one whole

Often the more we add to something the more we cause conflict,

Within and without

Simply here,

Simply being

Seeing all you can see;

Being with all that is

That is freedom

~ M. L Adams

Black and White are One

What has happened in the last two weeks and to George Floyd is so very sad. Black lives matter, all lives matter and the topic should never even be an issue and needs to be openly exposed.

Why are we so blind to our truth that we are all one, why separate and judge on differences, surely we should have moved on from this, surely it should not be an issue at all. But yet the sad fact is it is, for race, health, age and any other reason it goes on.

There is always another way and I really do hope that one day it will really change completely. Lets do all we can to make it so ♡

We are one

We are one 

A whole cycle

One truth;

Just different shades

 

From white to black,

Black to white;

All in between

Were all the same,

So why judge,

Why segregate?

 

What you do to another 

You do to yourself

So simply see

We are one whole;

All the same

 

We may be in different places,

Different spaces;

Yet were all the same

Were one whole,

One human race

 

Life is life

See from the heart

Let go of the strain,

We are all one; deeply the same ♡

Focus

The power of focus is one of the greatest powers we have and when we are aware, it can be directed towards that what is greatest for us.

Our attention is always directed somewhere, however we either choose to direct it where we want to, or it is directed for us. Wherever our attention is directed it is far greater if this is as much a concious choice as possible.

There are many possibilities in life and many perceptions and once we are aware of the power of focus we can have it work for us rather than against us. As what we focus towards is what we will see and experience.

From experiencing the ups and downs of directed and misdirected focus I’ve put together 5 top tips in applying the power of focus in your life. I hope you find them helpful and allow it to work some magic for you.

  1. Focus on what you want – too often we can be led astray either by others, outside forces or our own undisciplined mind and begin to focus on things we do not want. Train your mind to focus on what you want and then you will experience more of this.
  2. Discipline – We have to train our minds to get them to work for us. We can do this through various ways such as  meditation, visualisation, affirmations and more. By doing this we are choosing to direct our mind rather than be easily influenced by outside forces.
  3. Feeling – Our feelings are a great indicator of our dominant focus points. Observe how you feel and redirect your mind where needed and necessary.
  4. Association – Those who we associate with have a powerful influence on our focus. Energy transfers, so choose your company wisely, be around those that you can be positively influenced by and where  you can also have a positive influence.
  5. Diet and exercise – what we put in to our bodies is as important as our minds. The exercise we do will also affect our focus as the body affects the mind and vice versa. Be mindful of both the food you take in and the exercise you do as this will either positively or negatively affect you, the states generated and subsequently the outcomes.

I hope you find the above tips useful especially as we are now approaching the end of lockdown and we can use this as a time to reset and refocus. Make sure it is you who is in charge of it 🙂

Focus on where you want to go

Focus on being the person you want to be

Not on the old or what you’re told to see ♡

Simplicity

The greatest answers are in the simplest things

We need not go far to find what we seek

All is one yet all so different,

We are all our own unique expressions

Simply here in purity 

All is expressed in and through it,

The light shines bright

For all who see it,

See your light

Let it shine bright,

In simplicity is such beauty ♡♡♡

Walk in the Middle

Walk in the middle,

Amongst it all

Be  still in the middle;

In the present moment

Hear the sound ,

See the pattern 

Blend with it all

Find your true stillness;

Being you in each moment

~ M. L Adams

How to deal with unfairness in life

As much as we dont want it or like it, life can be full of unfairness. Some people work hard all their life and dont have what they need. Others may do little or nothing and seem to have everything.

Our liberty can be taken from us, we can be faced with endless difficulties and our health can be threatened.

All of these are simply a part of life; life can be hard and a struggle and these are facts we have to face sometimes, yet there are many ways in which we can approach these times in life that simply just are, to make it far easier.

The following are ways I’ve found most helpful;

  • Accept things as they are; the more we struggle against things and people as they are, the harder it is for us.
  • Find the positive; there is always  positive amongst difficulty. We just have to look for it. For example right now admist the coronavirus pandemic there is a beautiful peace outside and the birds are singing beautiful symphonies together. The air is cleaner and the earth is healing.
  • Change the meaning; ultimately it is not what happens to us, but the meaning we give it that counts and that is something completely within our control, no matter what the circumstances. Find the most empowering purpose and meaning and apply it to the situation and everything changes.You are the one who sets your sail. No one else.

A few years ago I wrote this small poem and it seems so apt right now for those of us who may be struggling;

Every difficulty can be an opportunity

Every struggle can be a strength

It is what you choose to focus on

That will really get you through anything,

To be place where you thought you would never be,

 To be place where you’re more than you’ve ever been ♡

Use this time to grow stronger, to become more, learn more and find your way to soar.

Turn this to your advantage ♡

To your growth,

Miranda ♡

Happy birds

The birds are happy right now
Their tweets can be heard;
Like a symphony across the streets
That were once so noisy and polluted
🐦☺🌱💛
Where there is difficulty
There are always blessings
Find the joy;
In every situation❤
