Hmm wedding 😀 Marriage? I think marriage is a way to legalize your love for one another. Nothing will change in my relationship I will still love him as much as a husband just the same I love him as a boyfriend. To me marriage is nothing more then just a legal contract your are signing with the person you are making a life long contract with.

How do I define marriage? What makes it sacred? If marriage means a loving couple committing to each other for the rest of their lives, who else should be part of the equation? Some people believe a marriage is only valid if done in church by a priest, while others are content to be legally married in a courthouse. Some couples want to have a ceremony to involve all the people they love as witnesses of the solidifying of their union. Some couples already feel committed to their bond but want the law to acknowledge their bond for tax, insurance, and other legal purposes such as having the rights of a family member in emergency matters surrounding their beloveds.

Honestly I think marriage means different things to each individual, and can change depending on age and personal experience…

Well… my wedding’s calling soon 🙂 and I am happy 😀

Stop obsessive ThoughtsThoughts obsessive? Stop them!
You might have reached a point in your life where you want to be rid of the continuous torture of the “thought generating” mind…

Obsessive or negative thoughts can make living miserable when you are plagued by them, but this very situation can become the invitation to transcend mind and be free of suffering forever.

Question: Can you stop obsessive thoughts?  If you could it would be great, but the truth is that it’s slightly more complicated than just suppressing your thoughts which at-most you can do for a few seconds. Plus suppressing thoughts is even worse than enduring thoughts. It builds up a lot of negative energy inside. So how to stop thinking horrible thoughts? The secret to stopping obsessive or negative thoughts is to detach from the mind. You cannot fight mind with the mind. That’s what this article is about. Let’s look at this in more detail.

What Causes Obsessive Thoughts?
If you generated thoughts, you could’ve controlled them too. The truth is that you don’t generate thoughts, the mind does. It’s on auto mode most of the time. You can see this for yourself, can you predict what you will think 30 seconds from now? If you can’t how can you assume that you are generating the thoughts? If you believe that you are your mind, that’s a false notion again. If you are your mind then how can you observe the thoughts? So you must be separate from the mind to see what the mind is doing. So the mind generates thoughts, which are mostly just energy forms. These thoughts pass through like clouds. We identify with some of these thoughts and obsess about them. So in truth all thoughts are just neutral energy forms, it’s “your” interest or association with the thoughts that makes them obsessive. If you can understand this truth, you have taken the first step towards getting rid of obsessive thoughts.

How to Stop Obsessive Negative Thoughts?
If you are asking this question, ask yourself another question – “is this question not another thought? It’s a thought about killing thoughts”. All your attempts at suppressing and stopping thoughts will fail because you will be using the mind to stop the mind. The police man and thief are both the mind, so how can the police man catch the thief? So you cannot kill the mind by force. The mind dies its own death by the poison of disassociation.

What gives power to a thought? – Your interest. If you have no interest in a particular thought then it loses its hold over you. You can try this out now. Let the thoughts flow through your mind but don’t take interest in them. Just stay as a bystander or a watcher and let the thoughts float. Initially you might have a hard time watching thoughts because of your inherent habit of associating with each thought that arises. It helps to know that you are not your thoughts, that thoughts are just energy forms created in the mind. Why does the mind create thoughts? No one knows – it’s just something it does, why bother. Do you ever ask why does the heart beat? With a little practice you will get really good at watching thoughts and not involving yourself with them. You will stop giving power to thoughts by not giving them your interest. Thoughts die immediately when they are deprived of this fuel of interest. If you don’t associate with the thought or give power to the thought, it will wither away quickly.

What Are Thoughts?
Past events get stored as memories. Your mind conditioning and beliefs are also stored as memories. All this is unconscious storage; the mind does all this in auto mode. Perceptions and interpretations are created in the mind based on its past “external” conditioning and also its natural conditioning (genetics). These interpretations, perceptions and judgments come up as thoughts in the mind, and they can positive or negative depending on the mind’s conditioning. Thoughts are generated based on the past incidents/memories, future projections and interpretations on the present life situation. It’s like a computer trying to predict or conjure up projection based on the data it has collected so far. When thoughts are negative in nature (thoughts of worry, anxiety, stress, lack, resentment, guilt etc) they produce resistance to the movement of your life, and this resistance is felt as suffering. Negative thoughts will always stand in resistance to the movement of your life, like blocks of stone in the midst of a swift current of water. Life is a stream of pure positive energy and hence any negative thought will stand in opposition to it, causing friction which is felt as suffering in the body. The thoughts in your mind gain power from your attention and interest. Your attention is the fuel for your mind. So when you give attention to negative thoughts in the mind, you are unconsciously fueling it and thus attracting more momentum for these negative thoughts. The momentum of negative thoughts in your mind will slow down, and ebb away, automatically when you stop feeding your attention to it. Stay as an open space of awareness without contracting your attention on the negative thoughts of the mind, and soon they will lose their momentum.

You can focus on the positive thoughts generated in the mind, and thus develop a positive momentum in your mind. Every time your mind produces some positive thoughts, e.g thoughts of love, joy, excitement, abundance, beauty, appreciation, passion, peace etc, focus on it, milk it, and give attention to it. This will cause your mind to attract more positive thoughts and thus build a positive momentum. Whenever it thinks negatively, don’t give it attention or interest, this will cause the ebbing away of the momentum of negative thinking. It’s really that simple. Once you understand the mechanics of how thoughts gain momentum in the mind, you will be in total control of your state of being.

The Practice of Watching the Mind
All you need to do to get rid of obsessive thoughts is to watch the mind without getting involved. You will get really good at this with just a little practice. This practice, or “sadhana” as called in Hindu scriptures, is the root of awakening from the illusion of mind. Without trying to understand this practice just implement it. The more you try to understand the more mind gets involved. Just watch the mind and you will soon see that you are not the mind at all. That the mind is like a machine in your head that generates thoughts based on your attention/interest. Be free of your mind by depriving it of your interest. This is the only direct path of becoming free of the mind.

Toate accesoriile  Pandora reprezinta o achizitie unica si deosebit de frumoasa in crearea oricarei bijuterii. Datorita unei game atat de vaste de modele Pandora, design-ul bijuteriei tale (in cazul meu, eu) va fi absolut unicat. Accesoriile Pandora pot fi din metale pretioase, sticla Murano sau chiar materiale naturale, fapt ce ii permite oricarui designer de bijuterii o mare libertate de creatie.

Pandora, cu afaceri de aproape 900 de milioane de euro la nivel mondial şi cu magazine în 55 de state, a deschis in septembrie la Bucureşti primul magazin de pe piaţa locală.
Situat în centrul comercial AFI Palace, magazinul are o suprafaţă de 64 de metri pătraţi şi a necesitat o investiţie de circa 300.000 de euro. “Este o intrare directă. S-a luat această decizie datorită potenţialului pe care piaţa din România îl are”, spun reprezentanţii Pandora.

Compania daneză comercializează bijuterii din aur şi argint, ce au montate pietre preţioase şi semipreţioase. “Clienţii pot personaliza orice detaliu al bijuteriilor”.
Preţurile produselor variază între 14 şi 4.500 de euro, iar reprezentanţii companiei spun că fiecare client va lasa în medie 400 de lei (circa 100 de euro) în magazinul Pandora.

“Cele mai deschise provocărilor în materie de stiluri şi culori ale bijuteriilor pe care le poartă sunt bucureştencele. Orice produs îşi găseşte cumpărător în Capitală. Clienţii Pandora sunt de regulă femei peste 20 de ani, cu venituri peste medie şi educaţie superioară”.

Claudiu&LiviaMoments of Contemplation…
That place where we allow ourselves to become emptied of distractions, and turn our awareness inward, to the Indwelling Source of Love…
A longing rises to the surface from deep within me as I stand watching the waves caressing the sand… In those still, quiet moments of contemplation, when we open our hearts to the awareness of the Indwelling Spirit and Universal Mind, we allow that Divine Intelligence which created us to keep recreating us…

The complex notion of love comes to me in various forms that the dreamer within me conjures up…
I AM drawn to a spirit… lost in thoughts, full of a beautiful longing. Longing for love. I marvel at the love my heart seems to experience as I watch the tender interactions of two lovers, us! I observe moments of contemplation, a heart full of love, longing, longing… longing for you…

Vine Craciunul! Cu secole inainte de aparitia lui Iisus, unii europeni sarbatoareau lumina si intunericul in cele mai intunecate zile ale iernii.

Foarte multe popoare petreceau in timpul solstitiului de iarna, cand partea cea mai grea a acesteia trecuse si zilele mai lungi erau mult mai aproape. In Scandinavia se sarbatorea Yule, solstitiul de iarna, din 21 decembrie pana in luna ianuarie. Pentru a-si arata recunostinta pentru reintoarcerea soarelui, fii si tati aduceau acasa bucati mari de lemne pe care apoi le ardeau. Urma o petrecere care nu se termina decat dupa stingerea focului, ceea ce putea dura pana la 12 zile. Scandinavii credeau ca fiecare scanteie din foc reprezenta un vitel sau purcel care urma sa fie nascut in noul an. Sfarsitul lui decembrie era o perioada perfecta pentru sarbatori in aproape toata Europa. In acea perioada majoritatea vitelor erau taiate pentru a nu consuma hrana toata iarna.

Pentru multi oameni acestea erau singurele zile cand aveau pe masa carne proaspata. In plus, majoritatea vinului si berii facute in timpul anului erau in sfarsit fermentate si gata de baut. In Germania oamenii onorau zeul pagan Oden in timpul sarbatorii din mijlocul iernii. Germanilor le era frica de Oden deoarce credeau ca acesta zbura prin cerul noptii pentru a-si supraveghea oamenii, ca apoi sa decida cine va muri si cine va trai. Din cauza prezentei lui, multi oameni alegeau sa stea in casa.

Vine Craciunul… cata bucurie 🙂 Toata lumea il asteapta pe Mos Craciun, iar unii inca se gandesc… ce mesaje sa le scrie celor dragi. Am ales cateva mesaje aici:

  • Sfanta seara de Craciun Sa ne-adune bun cu bun, Sfanta seara de Craciun. Ca-i mai Sfanta decat toate, La multi ani cu sanatate!
  • Viata asta ne inraieste si uneori actionam ca niste nebuni dar sa nu uitam ca este Craciunul si sa fim un pic mai buni
  • Esti o fiinta atat de draguta, politicoasa, frumoasa, sincera, spirituala si unica pe aceasta lume… Primeste urarile mele de bine si aceste minciuni nevinovate.
  • Sarbatorile cand vin, sa va fie cosul plin, sa aveti pe saturate, casa plina, sanatate! Punga sa geama de bani, mult noroc si La Multi Ani!
  • La aceasta cumpana dintre ani, lasa sa treaca prin fereastra sufletului tau, magia sarbatorilor, lasa-te cuprinsa de fericire si bucurie si ramai asa pentru tot restul vietii. Fii raza mea de soare si lumineaza-mi aceasta trecere, vino cu mine in lumea dragostei fara sfarsit.
  • Sarbatori Fericite si un Craciun plin de zapada fina sa ai un an mai bun si la anu’ sa-ti iei masina
  • Sarbatori fericite cu bucurii si impliniri alaturi de cei dragi! Sa va gaseasca Mosul cu masa bogata si sufletul curat!
  • Cu mic cu mare, mergem la sarbatoare, cu ganduri bune si dorinta de mai bine, pentru noi si pentru toti. Craciun fericit!
  • Craciun Fericit si multa sanantate, sa ai un an mai bun, sa-ti mearga bine in toate
  • Bucuria Craciunului sa tina pana in zori si un cor de craciunite sa-ti cante de Sarbatori
  • Bradul e impodobit, Mosul inca n-a sosit, Incepeti sa colindati, Si pe el sa-l asteptati. Va veni la fiecare, Cu cadouri si-o urare: Un Craciun plin de iubire, Sanatate, fericire, Mult noroc si impliniri Si ani plini de bucurii
  • Sa gasiti pe fiecare ramura a bradului implinirea viselor si cheia succeselor viitoare, iar MOS CRACIUN sa aduca doar pentru voi un sac plin. La multi ani!

Basking in the still of night…

Beneath the lights of the heavens, in the stillness of the night… Love… this is one of the great undefined mysteries of life. The fact that the perception of “love” can be viewed in so many different ways by humans often clouds the true definition of the word.

It makes you so vulnerable and opens you up to the greatest joy and the greatest pain. Your life is no longer your own because it allows someone to get inside you and touch your soul and control your emotions and take your heart hostage.

“Tell me where is fancy bred, in the heart, or in the head?” asked Shakespeare. He was one of millions who, over the centuries, have wondered where romantic love comes from.

Plato wrote in The Symposium in 416 B.C. that the God of Love “lives in a state of need.” This need is a basic human drive. Like thirst and hunger, it is nearly impossible to stamp out. In fact, lovers show all of the signs of addiction. Like drug addicts, they focus on the beloved, distort reality, and do inappropriate or even dangerous things to win this precious creature, crave his or her company and suffer withdrawals and despair if rejected. Lovers relapse like addicts, too.

I think about this image of lying in bed on a Sunday morning fully clothed next to him… and feeling totally content. Feeling like there is nowhere you would rather be and nothing you would rather be doing. Just looking at him and feeling like the rest of the world couldn’t possibly imagine what this is like. Feeling like you are both on the same page and everything you are feeling is mutual…

Yes… we’re basking in the still of night… 🙂
