Are you a "waiter"?

How much of your life do you spend waiting? "Small scale waiting is waiting in line at the post office, in a traffic jam, at the airport or for someone to arrive, to finish work and so on. "Large scale waiting" is waiting for the next vacation, for a better job, for the children to grow up, for a truly meaningful relationship, for success, to make money, to be important, to become enlightened. It is not uncommon for people to spend their hole life waiting to start living.

Are you a habitual "waiter"?

Waiting is a state of mind. Basically it means that you want to future, you don't want the present. [...] With every kind of waiting you unconsciously create inner conflict between you here and now, where you don't want to be, and the projected future, where you want to be. [...]

There is nothing wrong with setting goals and striving to achieve things. the mistake lies in using it as a substitute for the feeling of life.[...]

So give up waiting as a state of mind. When you catch yourself slipping into waiting... snap out of it. Come into the present moment.

[quoted from "The Power of Now" book, by Eckhart Tolle]

Today!

Today I have the opportunity to create a newer version of myself, a version of peace, forgiveness, compassion and love.

Today is time for inner preparations, time to shine out and light my way.

What I choose for myslf I will give to another! Today, I'm acting on knowingness. I can cause another to remember who they really are. I can go inside and search for inner wisdom and see what this calls me to do. Then I'll do it, I'll not be afraid.

Today I can breath - long, deeply, slowly, gently... I can see the silence holds the secret and the first thing is to develop this silence within the self, inside.


Today I can see relationships has one purpose: are a vehicle to declare-express-create-experience-fulfill the highest notion of who I really am.

Today I can trust myself, I can let go! I can understand that I am bringing ALL THIS to myself and there's perfection in it. I know the world is presenting me with circumstances and only I decide what those circumstances mean.

Today, who I AM DOES make a difference!


Today YOU and I are ONE! isn't this GREAT?!?!?! :D...and TODAY is everyday, all days, always, all ways... ;)
So, go and live, love, breath, do, trust, make a difference... TODAY!

...Only I will remain!

One of my colleagues remind me of Dune books, by Frank Herbert. Those were really insightfull writtenings for me, even if at a first look is 'just a SF' collection. I remember Muad'Dib sayings when he had to face his biggest fears: "I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."

I believe the process of facing - permitting through - turning the inner eye - inner silence - self is the solution for our obliterated world and alienated souls.

Earth Hour - MY hour!

Today we were 'celebrating' Earth Hour. We unplugged the whole stuff (refrigerator, freezer, heating system, oven, computers, mobile phones) - all off from the power distributor for our house, got out, walked trough town, talking to each other :D, jogging... great stuff!
We moved in this area of the town already for 5 months - today we got to know some details on our next street and around :).. we also notices there are some other people just walking around, enjoying the [somehow] fresh air of the evening - personally I thought this is not happening anymore these days.

I personally decided to do this every week [let's see how I'll manage this!] - ONE HOUR for myself, for ourselves, for the earth, for the whole...

Can you image if we would have ALL 8760 hours of the year for ourselves, how can it be? :D

Unplug all energy! Plug myself in!

Share with Emil!

Emil Moldovan/

Is strange how you treat these kind of messages when you receive them: "...somebody is in need, he needs help, some money..."; you delete them, thinking of spam; you think of that person with a good thought.

Emil was high school colleague with my husband.

Share a thought... or some of the abundance you have, even small amounts; you know when there are lots of people the power grows(*).

Be the change....

first Free Hugs -Tg. Mures (Feb 9th, 2008): follow-up

Even if the first free hugs campaign was taking place in Tg. Mures in 9th of February, here I am, late as usual: P to post some follow-ups.

It was a clear-shiny day in Tg. Mures: the way I LOVE it: sun in my eyes... :D

Doina, Mircea, Simona was there also. Doina and Mircea were sharing croissants and oranges to old ones, to babies, to different people. Thank you, dear ones or being there :).

The experience was unique (as all others but even more!) I met all kind of reactions:
-'why are we doing this? which is the reason?'
-'are you from some king of church?'
-'what do we want in exchange?'
-'are you with some political party?'
-'wow, great stuff!'
-'is good you do this...nice to have this in a country of bastards'
-'you should go to America, we have friends home’:D
-smiling and passing by;
-waiving from inside the cars in line at traffic lights;
-smiling and looking on the other side, passing by;
-intrigued by our actions;
-two boys from the children's house were moving around curious by what's happening. When they saw is ok to talk to us, they came to ask why we are doing this. We came to the discussion that is so spooky, interesting to do this, that they don't have no one to hug at the house where they are placed, they only have each other.
-one 'old' lady (I think she was about >80 years young ;) ), when Doina came to give her an orange, she was telling us to don't mind, but she thinks that she can buy that orange and be ok, and asked us to give it to somebody who really needs it and don't affords it... WOW!

See here some pictures from the 'event'...
we are here to hug each other :)


big hug :)






more and more coming toghether...we are four...one of us still small but with a lot of potential ;)... five with the smily on the banner :D

Doina, sharing love around...

Doina and an 'old' lady suprised by our actions

remembering to show love to your dear ones...

a team working on the next building, waiving at us...

this lady is realy tall, but we've seen no problem with that :P

a boy from the children's house, really interested why are we doing that, they were two of them, staying around for some while, and at least when he 'catch some courage' he came to me and asked somehow shy if we both can take a picture...

Well, this is the short version, cause is three weeks 'old'.
Meanwhile there were free hugs shared in Brasov, in Valentine's day.
Also, stay tuned; Bucharest coming soon: 8th of March - who's interested gi'me a sign.
In Tg. Mures we'll reiterate it each month, in different locations. Next time we'll go to a much crowded place at an hour with more 'traffic'.
I'll keep the whole world at 220V!.

Love is all around! SHARE IT! Be the CHANGE!

Free Hugs - Tg. Mures!!! :D

ALLRIGHTY! I've made up my mind!... I want to have some (at least one) "free hugs" moments in Tg. Mures.
Vik - and other people who told me till now that they enjoy the ideea - got me to this decision.
The location could be downtown, what do you think? :)

YOU! I'm inviting you to join me in giving and receiving free hugs :) Who wants to join for giving pls let me know here (comment) or on my email address (iulia[dot]sara[at]gmail[dot]com).
I'm thinking to do it before "Valentine's" day, on 9 of February (Saturday) from 11:00 AM, but we can agree on any other day.

If we feel at least great about it we'll manifest again, maybe monthly.. in different locations so everybody can feel that love is all around ;)
Come on to share some hugs!!! :D
