A Thousand Petals

Spirituality is a flower with a thousand petals: every act, every thought, every talk, every movement of our heart is a part of it  ~  Robert Muller

Sometimes it is hard to escape the hurt, the disappointment, those feelings of inadequacy that have a way of corroding our good intentions.  We need to recognize the illusions we carry with us. These negative energies have the power to strip us of our purpose and divert us from our intended course. We need to stay on our spiritual path.   Love is what we are at the deepest level and it is what we are here to do. We live for these moments. To love and be loved. To give and to receive. Love can be so simple. If we would just let it be.

When we allow love into our hearts. When we embrace the very heart of us. We become one. Our words, our actions, our thoughts will burst into a cascade of a thousand petals.

Life’s Rocky Road

There will always be rocks in the road ahead of us. They will be stumbling blocks or stepping stones; it all depends on how you use them ~ Friedrich Nietzsche

We tend to allow negative thoughts to amass like great piles of rock.  We need to develop the Art of Wisdom and put it into practice. To become more self aware. To reach a state of consciousness where we can achieve freedom of mind and spirit. Balance. When we return to the center of our hearts through mindful living we will come to realize our true authentic self and find our sense of purpose. To Love and be Loved. We should build our Life Foundations on strength of character and replace the rocks heavy with Anger, Hate, Ignorance and Intolerance with spiritually light rocks.  Rocks made up of Compassion, Respect, Truth, Humility, Generosity, Sacrifice, Wisdom and Love.

Especially Love.

Journey Within

We all have our paths in life we are supposed to follow to find who we are supposed to be, but it’s not always a straight path. There is something inside of us that guides us, and if you are quiet and listen to it, you’ll be all right  ~   Kyan Douglas

It takes courage to live, to express oneself, and lead a meaningful life. Be fierce. Be tenacious and above all, have the courage of your convictions to walk your road with dignity and respect.  Live your life with purpose and be kind and generous of heart. Be willing to help your fellow travelers on life’s seemingly bumpy road. There will be challenges, forks in the road and distractions along the way but at some point, hopefully, we will stop, be quiet and listen.

When we turn to our compass of life and find our truth, we will realize that the only journey is the one within. Bon Voyage!
