hello

“My Life, My Vibe” January 2017

NEW YEAR, NEW BEGINNING.

end-is-the-begnning-via-la-la-lovely

I’m back to my monthly challenges for a happier lifestyle—as always my Wellness Wednesdays I will be proposing a weekly challenge from cutting out sugar to reaching your step goal. These simple challenges are designed for you to succeed and see personal progress and for my family & friends sharing their ‘Things I’m Lovin Lately” also my favorites that I just can’t live without. You’ll have to wait and see what it is though!

What are you looking forward to this year on The Evolution! Society?

 

Thank You!

Celebrate Everything…

I was planning to write a big review for this year, as it has really been a fantastic year. But there’s this saying that life is what happens while you are making plans. Last week my family and I have been reminded of how fragile life really is and how fragile your dearest plans can be.

So instead of the big review I just want to thank you all. I’m more grateful than ever for all the support you gave me in the last twelve months.  It still feels like a dream to me whenever I open the forum or my inbox and read through all the discussions and feedback or to see the growing number of translators and contributors.

I’m also super thankful and proud of my little team that is steadily growing. We all have done an amazing job with all the help my volunteers and team provide in the forum. They really rock!

There are so many plans for 2017 and I can’t wait to get started again. But I hope you all understand that this year’s Christmas break has to be more extended and quiet form my end to help you all refelct and Celebrate Everything.

I will try to answer important support requests as good and fast as I can, but if I can’t answer in time, I hope that the forum will help you out for now.

I expect to return in full strength in the second week of January.

I wish you all a peaceful and happy few more days in 2016 and a wonderful and healthy start in 2017.

 

The Evolution! Society Team 🙂

community 5.jpgGreetings Community Network Family!
 
What a year this has been, and what a year 2017 will be!  The coming year will be a year full of new challenges, and I’m not just talking about the ones coming from my neck of the woods.  I’m talking about my community, your community, our community .  We all need to make a decision to take a stand on something, and as my friend the late Willie Frank Middlebrook used to say,  NO MORE SITTING ON THE SIDELINES, ITS TIME TO GET IN THE GAME!  This is no time to sit back and talk about what does or doesn’t affect you, because whether you want to believe it or not, everything that happens locally, nationally or globally, affects us all.  It is time to pick an organization and/or cause that stands for something worthwhile and GET INVOLVED!  The goal for The Evolution! Society is to have community engagement with general leaders, project leaders, community members, local sponsors, and other learning programs. Personally, I am involved in education, voter registration and community mobilization;  the advancement of small owned businesses; support of various health related causes and of course, the continued uplift and advancement our Black community.  I encourage each of you to take the time to sit down, be silent, and meditate on what matters to you…GET INVOLVED!  If fighting against voter suppression matters, GET INVOLVED!  If you want to make a change in this community, nation and world, GET INVOLVED
 
I want to thank all of you for your continued support of this information sharing platform, and encourage you to continue to share your information with us.  You will see improvements to our service in 2017,
 
May you and yours have a blessed, safe and prosperous holiday season!  See you in the new year!

7 Essential Habits for Peace

7 Essential Habits for Peace

by: Deepak Chopra, M.D.

Embrace Compassion and Leave Conflict Behind

“It’s only when you make the process your goal that the big dream can follow.” – Oprah

We all want to contribute to global peace, but it can feel disheartening when we see discord in the news, in politics, and even in our own relationships. But you can take a different perspective by setting the more accessible goal of creating peace within yourself – which then expands like a ripple to your relationships, your community, and ultimately the world. Wisdom traditions teach that the source of violence, war, discontent, rebellion, and unrest lies inside each of us. When you become a unit of peace consciousness, you have added in a unique way to bringing the world to a state of peace.

Develop your peace consciousness with these seven essential habits for peace.

Habit #1—Being Calm and Centered

Peace is the natural state of the mind at its deepest level. Non-peace begins in small ways, when you are worried, restless, distracted, uneasy, or dissatisfied. Begin being mindful of those signals from your inner world. When you feel them, take a moment to return to your calm space. Either meditating or simply sitting in a quiet space with your eyes closed and taking easy, deep breaths, works very well. This is about learning how to act upon early signals that peace isn’t there inside.

Habit #2—Non-Participation

To be a unit of peace consciousness, don’t participate in the opposite attitude, which magnifies the reasons to be unpeaceful. Do your best to avoid conversations that include gossip, blame, backbiting, and discussions of how terrible the world is. You don’t have to be a Pollyanna, acting as if everything is already perfect. Simply focus on not participating when you can feel that a situation is turning toward anger, resentment, envy, and hostility in any form.

 Habit #3—Taking No Side

Peace consciousness wants peace to be equally shared by everyone. This isn’t possible if you take sides, judge against others, or indulge in us-versus-them thinking. Be aware of everyone’s right to have peace. When you find yourself reacting with a knee-jerk response against a certain person, group, faith, ethnicity, or belief system, remind yourself that you can hold a different viewpoint while still wishing peace for all concerned.

Habit #4—The Intention of Peace

Peace consciousness becomes more powerful as it deepens. One way to deepen your awareness is to put an intention out to the universe, which really means connecting with your higher self. Any time you witness or confront a situation that needs a peaceful resolution, ask inside that the way to peace be opened for everyone. Sit quietly with this intention for a few moments, letting your heart go out to those not at peace.

Habit #5—Commune in Peace

When people of peace get together, they magnify their consciousness. Start finding ways to commune with others who wants peace. This can be through sitting with a child and absorbing his or her innocence, or discussing the topic of peace with a sympathetic person. You might consider joining a group that is working at any level of peace, such as preventing violence or helping troubled teens. Feel the warmth of sharing your peace with others.

Habit #6—Selfless Service

Peace consciousness wants to be of service. It does little good to be at peace passively in isolation. Allow someone else to feel the peace you have found by being of service. Let yourself experience the kindness, good will, and compassion you can bring to a troubled situation. Your service can be as modest as visiting the elderly or as active as joining a community outreach project. Your aim is to give and receive at the level of peace that benefits both people at the same time.

 Habit #7—The Soul’s Peace

At the deepest level, there is infinite peace, undisturbed by the play of opposites and the clash of darkness versus light. From the soul’s perspective, there is only pure Being. Each day, take time to meditate on your true nature as unbounded love, compassion, reverence for life, and unity with the divine presence. See the light expanding from your heart in all directions. Let simply being here be enough.

Realize deeply that you are an indispensable part of the journey to enlightenment that lies ahead for everyone who steps on to the path.
