Bodhicitta Lady ~ Mindful Realizations to a Path of Bliss

To be in bliss is to live sane, and to be joyful is to ascend as a supreme being walking in the divine ground of existence

Bodhicitta is pineapple for the soul, spiritual saccharine that oxidizes our inner being with scentsy wisdom pulps…                                                                 ═════════════ ღೋƸ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒღೋ═══════

WordPress, my deeear, I am trying my b-e-s-t to get along with you. Oh, I will, you can be sure of that!! You and I, we shall find common ground and be comfy with our quirks and habits. We shall get to know each other, as new friends do, sheepish and gawky and slightly reluctant at first, then slowly engaging and liking,  until soon enough – trusting.
I live and thrive and am’ my own me  in Roselle Quin  blogger land for almost 10 years! Yes, 10 years of writing, silently, quietly, solitary it may seem, but priced with a number of long time loving friends for company. I am set in my ways out  there in my ROSELLE QUIN cyber home — but my muse, she is insistent and I am endearingly enticed to try new thrills and pulled in to even more colorful concepts + creative endeavors. My cerebral is syrupy drippy with the idea of bliss. I will spread my wings and expand. Welcome me here where I am! 
We need to transform our mind, to rid it of ignorance, hatred and attachment. Transforming our mind means that even if we are in a very difficult situation or place, as long as our mind is happy, everything will be fine.~ Namdrol Rinpoche

Waking up this morning I was suffused with the idea of Dharma. This beautiful inspiring meditative way of living has given my inner being a wonderful settlement. I expounded on the graciousness of this path in writing my current blogpost –> “BODHICITTA LADY ~REALIZATIONS TO A PATH OF BLISS”

Here are a few of my favorite inspired quotes lifted from that post:

So injected I am with this crystalline intention, that a seizure of illumination zipped through my spinal consciousness - A life of Dharma - spiritual purposefulness for the whole of the Sangha - the community.

1. Bodhicitta, mindful & ripe with the juiciness of awakened existence, is a semantic energy I hooked from a Buddhist book my husband recently gifted me. The concept of going through life’s motions in meditated movements dedicated to the conscience of lifting every act holy for the good of “one, some and all” is very precise in its Christian notion of renunciation… of “doing unto others” and offering unto God all the dutiful, mundane tasks that at times even inwardly cause suffering.

2. All actions, however simple, however ordinary, however piddling becomes a stepping stone to N-I-R-V-A-N-A if consummated through  gratitude and generosity. The whole of man’s existence becomes suffused with majesty & regal with meaning — the meaning one endows by the charity one  devotes to all sentient beings.

3. For what is heaven, but the state of being free, truly free from ignorance and loathing! Hate is vulgarity of living, while Heaven is to exist in uncomplicated rapture – easy joy – metta.  “For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace and joy,”  Romans 14:17 ~  

4. Our destiny is not far yonder a mythical physical material hope in an afterlife of moneyed riches, but the attainment of a present  imperturbable stillness of mind after the hell fires of intemperate desire, aversion, delusion have been extinguished.

I have much to work on to be what I want but inspiration has spoken.

We are our own wisdom when we ask from the Divine. And sometimes when I am at the throes of being disillusioned or jaded or plain weary, peaceful paths to centering present themselves in unexpected ways. Bodhicitta, a mindful way of being has been an inspiration. Perhaps, you might be inspired as well. To read the whole article with all its accompanying pictures, please click –>

Feathering The Nest

 Now here’s a glimpse of my flower homey – my nest,  the sacred space where all the mother feather(ing) action happens. It has a hue of its own, an obliging energy that takes the mood of the moment (always) to give off converted vibes of comfort – much like trees do’ – sucking environment and processing  to exhale oxygen. 

My hearth pulses alive and encompassing in kindness. Old walls absorb our daily frantic rush, our loopy gaggling’ guffaws, our ever pedantic sermons, our complications, our prayerful vocations, our whispered adorations and, yes, my feral shrieks when I kinda’ go ballistic, hehe!

Simple Abundance Moments

Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ♥¸¸. ,•ღ. ℒℴνℯ •ღ. ℒℴνℯ♥¸.•*”Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ♥

Today, I fondly welcome these chains of beautiful simple abundance moments that (always) present themselves to me. I laugh, I love and live with a focus on the moment. And when I find myself being led to thoughts of doom, I wrestle it captive to the love of God. It’s not easy. But I am not alone.

La Dolce Vita

I am grateful for the inspiration of the Highest Wisdom who reigns me in and soothes my being when I whisper a prayer that twines around • ♥ •

“Please, I want to be strongly gentle…not riled or rattled or rock frenzied by muddled circumstances…let me be the bearer of wise silence when someone unburdens on me, patient and understanding and courageous in holding forth my two cents worth unless genuinely desired..

Love even..

L❀VE ♥´¯`•.¸¸.• •´¯`•.¸¸.♥Fiat Lux ♥´¯`•.¸¸.•
So that is the answer –> to love the world, just LoVe.

Love even the foreboding corners of veiled heartaches.
Love compassionately even the tangled web of uncertainties that hover.
Love even the hallow, the crookedness and ungratefulness that assaults.
Love, as Rilke conceded, even the questions themselves.
Love the peace and even the noise.
Love even the darkness of the world

For if you do not love it all, then who will? Instead of railing, one must do a surrendering; In doing so one softens the world’s abrasiveness. And just as a candle fairly casts it’s glow, the world’s somber dimness that pervades is gently illuminated by our surrender to love. There is no other way for we are anointed to be Light workers. I have to love it all.

Now as I breath and relax and center my being, inspiration reminds me to take heart a deeply personal truth.
“Happiness is who you are and joy is the living!
