It Exists, It is Real

It’s YOUR life, no one else’s. You choose how to live it. If you don’t choose, someone else will choose for you. The life you are focused on right now is just one of infinite threads that all exist simultaneously. Reach into the future with your mind and claim the possibility that you want. Intend to make it real.

And this is not just “all about you”. You help to create the world around you when you choose, because you are part of the All. What you choose ripples outward to the rest of humanity. It begins with you, in your thoughts, beliefs, and choices.

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

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.

Stereotypical Walls

Stereotypes propagate a full spectrum of negative, divisive, and destructive effects. We know the usual ones, based on race, color, gender, economics, political affiliation, etc. The list is long and goes on.

It feels like society is intent on building more walls lately, not tearing them down. As much as there is a narrative about overcoming them, some of the tactics being used are actually reinforcing them.

It is a challenge for each of us, every day, to acknowledge and see past the stereotypes we carry within us. When we subscribe to stereotypes and labeling, we are not only doing an injustice to others, we also are to ourselves.

When we can personally overcome this sort of thinking and behavior, we become expansive and growing, big rather than small.

Let’s commit to adopting bigger thinking, wider perspectives, and to building bridges rather than walls.

Inspirational Quotes:

“….. it would be interesting to find out what goes on in that moment when someone looks at you and draws all sorts of conclusions.”  ~ Malcolm Gladwell

“The single story creates stereotypes, and the problem with stereotypes is not that they are untrue, but that they are incomplete. They make one story become the only story.” ~ Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

“Once you label me you negate me.” ~ Søren Kierkegaard

“A stereotype becomes a stereotype when a significant percentage of the population appears to conform to it.” ~ Kelley Armstrong

Live Fully Today

There are many lessons being learned by humanity in these uncertain times. In the long run, the biggest one might prove to be, “Live life today and every day to the fullest extent possible.”

The events of the past year and a half have brought life into pinpoint focus. We all tend to live in the past or future too much. The more we are able to live in the moment, the fuller and richer life becomes.

It is important to learn from the past, but then let it go. When we hang on to regrets related to past hurts and mistakes, we are just wasting our precious time. As Maya Angelou said, “Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.”

On the other side of the coin, it is important to envision and intend to create the future you desire, but then let it go. Relax and don’t push at the universe. If your intention does not waver and your actions match it, then trust that the universe will help bring it to you.

Step back and enjoy today while you are in the process of creating your tomorrow.  Life is indeed short, and every day, every step of the way on your life path is a treasure.

Inspirational Quotes:

“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.” ~ Oscar Wilde

“Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow, it empties today of its strength.” ~ Corrie Ten Boom

“I was smiling yesterday, I am smiling today and I will smile tomorrow, simply because life is too short to cry for anything.” ~ Santosh Kalwar

“Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.” ~ Mother Theresa

“The future depends on what you do today.” ~ Mahatma Gandhi
