Nurturing Thursday- Love Yourself

Nurturing Thursday

“Love yourself.

Enough to take the actions required for your happiness.

Enough to cut yourself loose from the drama-filled past.

Enough to set a high standard for relationships.

Enough to feed your mind and body in a healthy manner.

Enough to forgive yourself.

Enough to move on.”

– Steve Maraboli

Nurturing Thursday : thanks-can-make-you-happier

Gratitude is a way for people to appreciate what they have instead of always reaching for something new in the hopes it will make them happier, or thinking they can’t feel satisfied until every physical and material need is met. Gratitude helps people refocus on what they have instead of what they lack. And, although it may feel contrived at first, this mental state grows stronger with use and practice.~ giving-thanks-can-make-you-happier

Nurturing Thursdays- Talk to Yourself

Nurt Thurs – Love Your Body

Posted on

Nurt Thurs – Your Body( To “give this planet a much-needed shot of fun, support and positive energy” … I dub Thursdays as Nurturing Thursday.)-beccagivens

 

The body is not your enemy, nor is it in any way unfriendly or

even indifferent to you. The very existence of the body is bliss. If

you love your body, you become relaxed, you care about it. It is

not wrong; it is not narcissistic to be in love with your own body.

In fact, it is the first step towards spirituality.               

(Osho: Meditation: The Art of Ecstasy)

When taking a shower, feel it all over the body – every drop of water touching you. Feel the touch, the coldness, the warmth! Try this the whole day whenever you have the chance, and everywhere there is a chance – everywhere! When just breathing, feel the breath – its movement within and its going out – just feel it! Just feel your own body. You have not felt it.

Boys tusslingWe are so afraid of our own bodies. No one touches his own body in a loving way. Have you ever given any love to your own body?

The whole civilization is afraid of anyone touching himself because from childhood touching has been denied. It appears to be masturbatory to touch oneself in a loving way. But if you cannot touch yourself in a loving way your body will go dull and dead. It has gone so. Touch your eyes with your palms.

Feel the touch, and your eyes will feel fresh and alive immediately. Feel your body all over. Feel your lover’s body, your friend’s body. Massage is good. Two friends can massage each other and feel each other’s bodies. You will become more sensitive.

(Osho: The Book of Secrets Volume 2)

 

The body is nothing but the visible aspect of the soul, and the soul is nothing but the invisible aspect of the body.

(Osho The First Principle)

Nurturing Thursday- Stay Positive, Stay Happy

Posted on

Good advice from Becca- Nurt Thurs – Fired!

“You only have control over three things in your life – the thoughts you think, the images you visualize, and the actions you take.” – Jack Canfield

So shrug off all the negative thoughts, sow a seed, nurture it and wait.

“STAYING POSITIVE does not mean that things will turn out okay. Rather it is knowing that YOU will be okay no matter how things turn out.”– Unknown
