"Faith, acts promptly and boldly on the occasion, on slender evidence."
It's comforting to choose a path that seems well-lit and predictable. But, once in a while, we seem to know with inexplicable confidence that it's time to take a risk.
Moving in faith takes a joyful heart and willingness to surrender perfectionism. Those leaps, both big and small, bring us to a new level of living, thinking and loving.

We are constantly falling into the trap of "how"
the world wants us to be, rather than how we really should be.
searching, seeking and pondering seems to be a right we give to others while we
easily fall into their dictation.
We are dictated the right colour that is
accepted, a certain dress code that is accepted, a certain way of life that is
accepted, everything except the real us.
Most of us live our lives worrying
what the other person might think of us. I am among the fair few who choose to
be what I am, no matter what the opposition, usually become outcasts.
problem is not with those who choose to conform to the truth; the problem is
with the society itself.
I am a rebel a woman speaking against rules set by the
real MAD men from the dark ages!
What should be our own journey, by losing focus we lose
ourselves following others through their journey, trying to live their life
because we find our own lives inadequate, therefore to capture their lifestyle;
we lose purpose as well as direction of our journey.
To capture the lifestyle
we lose the Life we were given. I am living mine the way I want to according to
me and me alone!
The only thing that matters is to realize that there is only
one true love, and that is the love for oneself, through loving and knowing oneself
we obtain from the capacity to love and know others.
We don't need to seek
others to make ourselves whole.
But if we become whole through self love, and
understanding we attract like minded people and everything will fall into
We all have a Choice.
That is the only thing we need to understand.
Hardship and struggle doesn’t equal personal growth or a better life nor does
choosing an 'easy path' whatever that means equal a shallow life or waste of
If the choice we make is based on a conscious decision, based on our
sub-conscious awareness then that the path we walk, that the path that makes us
Life is actually very simple, we need to listen to our subconscious, our
emotions, for they are telling us what we like or do not like, unclouded and
without the rationalisation and justification interference of our brain.
most important thing of all:
If you wish to increase happiness, do not aim to
increase possessions; simply decrease your desires for possessions.
Love and a happy life is the only thing that fulfill us.
There is no such thing
as destiny, only the destiny we create! We are not a drop in the ocean; we are
the entire ocean in a drop.
Worship at the altar of every tingly bodily sensation.
Savour every sound, feel the perfection in every perception.
You are alive, and your aliveness is the world!
Nothing is personal here, so everything is a gift!
In my short time on this planet, I have known great sorrow,
plunged into the depths of oceanic despair, been thrown so deeply into my
loneliness that I thought I would never return.
I have tasted the ecstatic joys
of meditation, the fierce intimacy of love, the savage pains of heartbreak, the
excitement of unexpected success and the blows of sudden failure.
times when I thought I’d never make it, times when my dreams had been shattered
so thoroughly I couldn’t imagine how life could ever go on.
Yet it went on, and
sometimes I found humility within the devastation, and out of the ashes of
imagined futures often grew new and present joys, and no experience was ever
I have come to trust life completely,
trust even the times
when I forget how to trust at all,
trust that life doesn’t always go according
to plan, because there is no plan, only life, and even the times of great
uncertainty hold supreme intelligence, and sometimes you have to fall to stand
more fearlessly, with greater kindness.
And somehow I am always held, in a way I cannot explain and
do not want to. I may be crushed yet again before too long, I may experience
further seemingly insurmountable challenges and heartbreaks, but somehow I am
I find myself with
nothing to do but be. It feels like that isn’t enough for all of us who were
taught from childhood to accomplish. Surely I should be accomplishing something
that feels necessary or vital. But breathing might fall into both of those
categories. I have the bad habit of trying to fix myself and life. Life doesn’t
need fixing and neither do I. For human fixing just adds to the sum total of
the world’s suffering. Mum is gone for good. Can I sit here with this feeling
of utter failure, this sense that it is all out of my hands anyway? Does the
stone I feel in my body need to stay until it has served its purpose? The stone
in my throat, in my heart, in my belly; everyone knows that feeling of
mortality the heaviness, the sorrow, the burial in matter. All I can do is be
with in my nothingness. For fixing suffering is beyond human abilities. No one
understood this. Let us rest together in our emptiness, in our foolishness.
Perhaps rest is what brings in the miracles performed by what is not of the
human capacity to deliver. Let us turn to the simple words found in simply let
it be it's the opposite direction of our brainwashing. For quite some time now,
I find the brainwashing has been on a high speed spin cycle. The foolishness
has mostly gone done the drain....mostly. All there is, is this Eternal Now
Moment. The only escape is into awareness. We knock at the door of
self-comforting but there is nobody home. Only God is home. Only IT can open
the door that you are and IT is. The void demands your absence and your
presence. Once you master that, anything is possible....
Sorrow is the greatest teacher. It's too bad but it' the
