Sunset Reflection on the Ohio River

Greetings, dear you, from my happy coffee fun writing time… So, did you finish reflecting on 2019? How is day two of 2020 going for you so far?

This is just a short little post because I wanted to share this photo with you:

Sunset_Reflection_OhioRiver_StarFireTeja

Recently Pixabay accepted a few more photos into my portfolio (StarFire Teja on Pixabay), but for some reason they did not accept this photo, which was my very favorite one! I love how you can see the sun through the tree and also the sun’s reflection through the tree!

How do you feel when you look at this photo?

 

 

Happy Christmas from StarFire Teja!

Dear readers,

For all who celebrate Christmas, I wish you a merry time filled with warmth, love, and good cheer.

May this holiday time help you to Happy Up your mind!

With much, much love,
StarFire Teja

The 3 E’s for Working With Your Holiday Emotions

So, dear readers, are you getting your Merry On during this holiday season? Are your nerves feeling frazzled at times? Are you noticing any difficult emotions surfacing or lurking around the edges?

Here is a simple practice for working with your holiday emotions, that I am calling “The 3 E’s” ~

~ Enjoy your happy, merry, cheerful, peaceful, joyful, expanded, and loving emotions.

~ Endure your agitated, irritated, overwhelmed, frustrated, angry, sad, and jealous emotions.

~ Embrace ALL of your emotions, recognizing that they are all simply energies passing through you… They are energies, which are triggered by endless seen and unseen causes! ~ Underneath, behind, and all around these energies is your pure beautiful Self! Embrace yourself as you are in each moment. Look in the mirror and say “I love you” to yourself…

Place one hand on your heart, and visualize healing green energies swirling and pulsing in your vibrant green heart center! Cultivate endless self-love during this holiday season… and beyond.

I hope this post is helpful to you or to someone you love.

With great love,
StarFire Teja

Happy Gandhi Jayanti

“Mahatma Gandhi is still alive, and he is very strong now. He is in everyone of us.”
~ Thich Nhat Hanh, in a five-minute video (“Martin Luther King, Gandhi are as alive as ever”), in which he speaks about why it is wrong to kill…

Today is the birthday of Mahatma Gandhi, so this post is to honor that great soul… Let us be forever grateful for all the high beings who grace this planet Earth!

My favorite quote ever by Gandhi-ji is:

“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”

Do you have a favorite Gandhi quote?
