Happiness Comes

Happy always; maybe from just feeling love within all which is abundant joy and ever flowing. Maybe the bigger our heart/vessel the more contentment and peace flows into us. They say still waters run deep. Perhaps in constant practice of stillness/ focus on giving back to the Divine who is our #OneCreator living within us and everything, that mere giving back with of course discernment, in that stillness, we can see the sun shine deeper through our very being, seeing more and more of who and what we really are; love manifested, projected in a creation of energy. Science proves all is energy and through science it is understood all we see with our physical eyes is a projection.

The brilliant quote above also in previous post below, from Shantideva a Buddhist monk who passed in the 700’s, makes it clear the cause of misery vs the result of serving. Ego vs. Love. Love rules; Darkness tries. Our One Creator and karma rule, so when our side of the street is clean, love permeates and we see a brighter world. #InnerPeace toward #WorldPeace The love within me is the same love within you.

Happiness comes by giving. ““When happiness is liked by me and others equally, what is so special about me that I should strive after happiness only for myself?”  Shantideva

Video of My First and Only Tandem Skydive

This once in a lifetime experience is not easy to describe in words. If I had to describe it, as I have stated on social media last year after taking the jump, is it is an exhilarating, spiritually physical experience of devouring fear! Loved every second of it. Veteran tandem skydiver described me as his most vocal in 2 decades of his skydiving career. OK I’ll take that LOL!
Di Lee thank God skydive

If you’ve ever wondered what it feels like but not wanting to take the risk, some of my friends really got butterflies experiencing the sky dive with me by watching:

Life is a leap of faith. Skydiving is close to what I imagined when I wrote my song “Come Along.” I wrote the lyrics, “Can I learn to fly, leaving all my sorrows and envy passing by.” Skydiving was such a carefree experience and not worrying where things are not in my control is how I choose to live my life. I came across an inspiring quote that summarizes my same philosophical belief, “If you can solve your problem, then what is the need of worrying? If you cannot solve it, then what is the use of worrying?” ~ by Shantideva, a Buddhist Monk who passed away in the year 763.

Another inspiring quote from Shantideva: “All the suffering in the world arises from wanting happiness for self. All the happiness in the world arises out of wanting happiness for others.”

Gratitude is Love in Attitude

Our friends remind us that gratitude is the language that is most beautiful. To me, gratitude is LOVE in attitude. A well known quote “It’s not happiness that brings gratitude, it’s gratitude that brings us happiness,” that I found on http://www.verybestquotes.com/ is where you can find an abundant of daily inspiring quotes.

Isn’t it true when we find gratitude for our One Creator in ourselves and in others, we are given inner peace and realize our only enemy is within our self? We are also our own competition. While I believe all religions are form of worship and no one is better than the other, if we could only respect that we all have our own viewpoints, our philosophy would be live and let live. The person on the Eastern side of the world says to my friend standing beside me here on the Western side of the world that the sun is coming up now. At the same time my friend says “No, the sun is setting now.” Who is right? Both are from their own perspectives.

Definitely grateful for our One Knower of All Hearts and for all of you positive lovies, giving inspiration, empowerment and spreading positivity to others. Thank you! Your kindness makes the world a better place!

Make 2015 the Most Amazing Year Ever

We can all make 2015 the most amazing year ever by staying #FOCUSED and willing to #CHANGE along with #PERSISTENCE!

Einstein says:  “Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

Perpetual contentment in our best efforts is the sign of success for it can not be bought, traded or given to us by family or friends; however the Universe responds when we are dedicated with kindness, generosity and humility. The Law of Attraction illustrates how we receive what we give.

We learn by repetition so when depressed habitually go to uplifting people and quotes; it makes a difference. When happy the more we give, the longer we stay happy!

Inspiration for the spirit is priceless; treasures beyond the physical such as happiness are life’s only true valuables.

Enjoy and Bring Joy!

Enjoy and bring joy! “Do anything, but let it produce joy.” ~ Walt Whitman

So on off or down days, if we surround ourself with those who Mark Twain says,

Some people bring joy wherever they go, and some people bring joy whenever they go.”

Joy is contagious. We are the company we keep!

It’s Been A While Since I Blogged!

It’s been a while since I blogged. So much going on and hard to keep up with everything. Just thought I’d wish everyone all the beauty and kindness in abundance and more than you give and send out during this holiday season and always! Thought I’d share these kindness quotes I came across and appreciate. I always say “kindness is king!”

“You know what love is?
It is all kindness, generosity.
Disharmony prevails when
You confuse lust with love, while
The distance between the two
Is endless.”

~ Rumi

Roses and Buddha Kindness quote“To practice five things under all circumstances constitutes perfect virtue; these five are gravity, generosity of soul, sincerity, earnestness, and kindness.”

~ Confucius

EP Funded 104% in Record Time!

My immense appreciation to every pledging friend on our EP campaign! It was funded 104% in a record 5-1/2 week time frame!

www.pledgemusic.com/projects/dilee

It typically takes 60+ days to do a crowd funding project and because of all of my caring, supporting friends who are forever in my heart, the text info (writers, producers, lyrics, mixers) for the EP CD on the 3 songs have been submitted to the Grammys as a new member in time for their August deadline.

As my very first submission it’s simply a joy to be able to submit for nomination consideration! The songs are finally mixed for mastering Monday Sept 15th so CD manufacturers can print full jewel case CD’s for all who pre-ordered as well as hard copy submission follow up to the Grammys within their final deadline.

Thank you again everyone! So pleased to hear the feedback from each of you on the PledgeMusic site regarding the front cover, back cover, inside cover, behind CD, the CD itself and all the artwork! More soon stay tuned!

Pledgemusic Doesn’t Charge Credit Cards ‘Til 100%

#BeyondHappy & willing to fail release of my EP due to misunderstandings (as I could not possibly be happier even to re-record, release EP & submit to Grammys via crowd funding www.pledgemusic.com/projects/dilee ). Pledge Music is NOT like others in that they do NOT charge any credit card til I reach 100% then they only release partial funds until all merchandise is shipped and received protecting the consumer.

Thought all crowd funding was this way but that is not the case. Kickstarter is only other crowd funding platform that I am aware of in addition to Pledge Music that protects the consumer.

So whether or not enough of my friends stand by me or not I will still slowly release music to help inspire and heal as well as support IRS verified charities such as www.CircleofHopeInc.org (concert Aug 16th & 10% over target goes to them with balance of overage for more songs or live concert in top grossing city) and continue supporting products like www.Rebbltonic.com (drink pictured here) proceeds go to help prevent human trafficking.

Thank you pledging friends in putting your credit card on hold to buy my EP! You are forever in my heart brothers & sisters regardless of whether we reach 100% funding …where if we fall short no money exchanged nor are products sold. If pledged with PayPal and goal is not reached, that is where refund occurs. I’ve got your back to whatever capacity I am able to now and in the future. If we don’t make our goal, EP will not released, no money would have been exchanged but all pledgers will still receive a copy of my spoken word album to be released Aug-Sept 2014 ♡ ♡ ♡

Courage

Asked today how it feels in this earth suit (experiences). Cool question. I answered, “It feels lighter and happier identifying myself as my attention”…the essence of consciousness type thing or feeling which stems in my belief of #OneLove (One Creator) #OnePeople #OneEssence. It takes courage to maintain unity for we have to let go of our ego; Bringing down the walls and lifting our eye to see ourselves in each other, we feel we are One.

We are only competing with our self & judging-fear-arguing only limits our contentment ~ joy ~ abundance #embraceLOVE

“Courage is the most important of all the virtues, because without courage you can’t practice any other virtue consistently. You can practice any virtue erratically, but nothing consistently without courage.”
Maya Angelou

One of my two mentors once said “Happiness is being able to laugh at ourselves”… Let’s forgive ourselves for our shortcomings & strive to overcome them
