We were working on Mindfulness. Exploring different topics to help us be more alert and aware in our everyday life.

1) Accept responsibilities for our own actions, even the most insignificant ones. We have the habit of not assuming our mistakes, but we are always very conscient of our victories, especially when they don´t belong to us.

2) Availability: It is usless to be accessible all the time for the others, as it is usless to be hiden when everybody knows where we are. Alternating these two states, we don´t get tired  senseless and we don´t make the others feel tired of our presence.

3) We don´t need to look for approval in the eyes of the others. We have to be coherent with our own actions, attitudes, and values. It is necessary to look inside for approval not outside, we need to feel confident and trust ourselves.

4) It is essential to be fully conscious of who we are and how we act. It is useless to complain and be sad, saying that somebody else is making us feel that way. Nobody is doing anything to anybody, and least of all, if we are in deep contact with our inner strength.

5) There´s always a tiny bit centimetre of luck at our reach. The real art consits in letting us flow and use it.

All of us possess and inherent power to get some things. The real secret would be in deviating the energy wich we put into our weaknesses and employ it in our real life goals.

This is another activity in our “Necklaces & Ties” meeting group.
1st Task:
   
When I came here
   I was eager to share moments with the group
   Nervous about decisions
   I love the energy surrounding us
   Laughing and feeling supported
   opening our hearts
2nd Task:
   
When I came here 
I was eager to share moments with the group 
Nervous about decisions
 You conquer your soul
don´t let it force you
I love the energy surrounding us 
shining with the sparks of an adult modern woman
 Laughing, relaxed and connected with ourselves
feeling supported,  opening our hearts
Be alert, our thoughts will give us the direction.

Self-acceptance is a cornerstone of attaining a resilient lifestyle. In the absence of self-acceptance, it is difficult to accept others. Self-acceptance is associaterd with self-steem and dignity. The achievement of self-acceptance is a lifelong process involving an ongoing, honest evaluation of our strengths and vulnerabilities; of our goals and expectations; of whether we are involved in activities that bring us satisfaction, contentment, and joy, and of whether we are living our life in accord with our basic values. (From the Book: “The Power of Resilience” by Robert Brooks and Sam Goldstein)

from the same poem…

Avoid becoming attached to anything at all,
And remain free from craving and desire.
Attachment prevents the attainment of happy states,
And, furthermore, destroys liberation’s vital force.

Should you discover a means to happiness,
Strive constantly to put it into practice.
Any task you have set out to do,
Should be completed before embarking on another.
With this approach, both will be achieved.
But doing otherwise, nought will be accomplished.

Take no delight in harmful deeds.
Should thoughts of superiority arise,
There and then, subdue your pride,
And recall the instructions of your master.

Should you ever feel daunted or dejected,
Uplift yourself with encouragement and praise.
And meditate on the emptiness of both.
When encountering objects of attachment or aversion,
Regard them as mere apparitions and illusory.
