Courage to Love

How much love you have in your life, how much you express, it is all up to you. The wonderful thing about love is, the more you give it, the more it expands and comes right back to you.

Have the courage to love, in all kinds of ways, in every direction. Many of our most important life lessons are around love. Our hearts crave to love and be loved.

There are many wonderful quotes about love by the poet Rumi, here are just a few:

“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.” ~ Rumi

“Let yourself be drawn by the stronger pull of that which you truly love.” ~ Rumi

“Goodbyes are only for those who love with their eyes. Because for those who love with heart and soul there is no such thing as separation.” ~ Rumi

“This is love: to fly toward a secret sky, to cause a hundred veils to fall each moment. First to let go of life. Finally, to take a step without feet.” ~ Rumi

“Wherever you are, and whatever you do, be in love.” ~ Rumi

“Let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love. It will not lead you astray.” ~ Rumi

“Reason is powerless in the expression of Love.” ~ Rumi

“Gamble everything for love, if you’re a true human being.” ~ Rumi

“Love calls – everywhere and always.
We’re sky bound.
Are you coming?”
~ Rumi

“Love is the whole thing. We are only pieces.” ~ Rumi


"Everything I know, I know because of love." Leo Tolstoy

It’s Your Journey

You are the captain of your destiny, but only if you choose to be. The matrix of society will try to shape your mind and your future, if you are not careful about the thoughts to which you subscribe.

Increasingly we are lead to believe that we are helpless victims of fate, that someone else should create our reality, that we have no wisdom or personal power to shape it. We are taught that the problems are too big for us to fix, so let an external authority take care of it.

Start to be more self-observant and analyze the messages being delivered to your mind daily. Do they make you feel personally empowered? Do you feel and believe they are leading you down a road where you could feel truly fulfilled and happy in your life?

The life you are living is a result of your thoughts. If the thoughts that dominate your mind and the reality you see before your eyes no longer resonate with your true desires for life, figuratively (or literally) pack your bag and se

This is YOUR life journey, no one else’s, so make sure it’s a road of your choosing.

Claim Your Life

Sharea

The past year I feel like I’ve been swept along against my will in a tidal wave of “fate”. The dictionary’s definition of fate: “The course of someone’s life, or the outcome of a particular situation for someone or something, seen as beyond their control.”

I’ve become oh-so-weary of the dire predictions, the unending negative narrative, the muddy mental pictures that our leaders and the mainstream media paint for our future. These people use the negativity to justify their positions and to sell newspapers that cater to the collective fear.

How about you? Claiming your life begins with paying attention to your mind, your thoughts, and your belief system – essentially, what you believe is possible for your life. More on these thoughts at these posts:

The Calling

The upheaval in the world has a built-in silver lining, not yet revealed. Humanity is undergoing a complete overhaul in its value systems. That means how we view life, value it, and live it, as well as how much we value our planet and take care of it.

In spite of the fact that some of this is painful, I’m looking forward to the immense positive changes that are possible.

How are you feeling about it? Your soul chose to be born into this life and experience these changes. Do you have a sense of purpose to be an instrument of positive change in these times?

Think of this as the biggest theatrical production that has ever taken place on Earth thus far. Will you just sit in the audience and wait for the outcome, or will you step onto the stage and play your part?

Change begins with your thoughts and ripples outward. As Mahatma Gandhi said, “Be the change you wish to see in the world”. You are part of the greater collective called humanity, and we are all part of One.

Be Like the Giraffe

As Oscar Wilde so humorously put it, “Be yourself, everyone else is taken.”

Society has this need to shape and mold us, to make us “acceptable”. Perhaps this has never been more strongly evident than it is in these times.

Becoming our most authentic selves, being fully true to ourselves, is sometimes a lifetime journey. But it does not have to be! We are not born with the masks that society encourages or demands that we wear. We learn to acquire them to get along and fit in.

This may make life feel easier in the short term, but in the long run is it really?

When you do not show who you really are to the world, there is an undercurrent of self-betrayal that you hold inside. Over a lifetime, this can become an unbearable burden.

Being true to yourself is one of the most important ways to fulfill your soul.

Look to nature as an example. There are no false face games being played there. Nature is authentic. No giraffe is wasting his life bemoaning his “too long neck”…

… or his “ugly freckles”, wishing he was a zebra with those marvelous stripes.

No, he’s just living his life, being the best giraffe he can be!
