In This Era of technology, in this atomic age, the values have changed.
We have learned that we are the guests of existence, travelers between two stations.
We must discover security within ourselves.
I see so many people looking for approval by how many likes they have on their daily social media posts.
Hoping that maybe today they can feel secure within their skin, they are putting their security in others.
During our short span of life we must find our own insights into our relationships with the existence in which we participate so briefly.
Otherwise we cannot live.
This means, as I see it, a departure from the materialistic view of the 20th century.
It means reawakening of the spiritual world, of our inner life of religion.
I don’t mean religion as a dogma or as a church, but as a vital feeling.
Accept others just as they are. Most of all, Accept yourself …… for you, hold the whole world within you.
Be great in all that You are!
Jesus said it best….Luke 9:48 ~The Message
“You become great by accepting, not asserting. Your spirit, not your size, makes the difference.”
“High failure towering o’er low success“
Too often we are tempted by the effortless and easy thing.
At such moments raise your sights, think BIG, attempt something difficult even if you do not quite bring it off.
High failure towering o’er low success
These six words, at a moment of hesitation can run through your heart and memory-
a warning, an inspiration and a challenge.
So many before us have reached up and maybe they didn’t reach what they set out to, but we now have the opportunity to start where they left off.
They have shown where failure and struggles have made them stronger. So reach up not only for you, but for all those around who look up to you. ~sweetlyfiercesoul
“Every wish is like a prayer to God“. ~Elizabeth Barrett Browning
If I had the magic gift like Tinker Bell I’d flit into the mind of my friends and family leaving this prescription for happiness.
Stop the habit of wishful thinking and start the habit of thoughtful wishes.
I would sweep away al those dreary office signs that say “Think” for another that shout “WISH”!
Wishes are thoughts that vibrate with life and eager for action. They have the power to produce light and beauty.
It seems like when ever I look up into the night sky I will see a quick stream of light. A shooting star.
Sadly I have always given my wishes to someone else thinking they could use it more than I. Now I know Those stars are for me just as they are for you.
They are a reminder that our dreams are waiting for us to claim and all the blessings to come with.
Start wishing for all the creations you have within your imagination. I did…they are starting to come true more beautifully than I could ever have imagined.
“Her wounds of silent tears
showing those of us who love her,
That her sweetly fierce soul is
forever growing”. ~sweetlyfiercesoul
“O wad some Pow’r the giftie gie us to see oursels as ithers see us!”
“Sometimes we find a clue in some chance remark made by an old friend.
Maybe something we’ve read sparks a glimpse of who we really are.
Fleeting thoughts which we meditate on through out the day
Bringing us closer to who we are.
Bit by bit self-knowledge grows.
An Awareness of all things, “self”
It does not come easy and perhaps this very awareness of the difficulty sustains us,
Spurs us on toward the ever receding goal.
For the self-knowledge we seek
rising above our social vanities and pride and the impressions we make is a full-time, lifelong job.”
“I deserve Beautiful visions.
I deserve Love.
I Validate Myself.”
“We are always getting ready to live, but never living.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson
There are many times in our lives when we want to set goals yet say,
“maybe I’ll start tomorrow”.
We are so tensed up in self-absorption that we cease to breathe deeply of the life around us. God knows there are days of tension, senseless distractions, incessant entertainment, and the obsession of keeping busy.
Often with activities of little value.
Many turn to elaborate ends to numb away the awareness of being alive.
But that goal we so desperately want still dangles in our thoughts.
Life isn’t easy, but trying to deny it makes it bitterly painful.
When you’re in a position of knowing you want change and have a goal you want to achieve. Start small and live moment by moment.
Start living your life of value. Because you are so worth it. You control the time in which you were given.
