Just imagine….

I came across this while spring “cleansing” and I just have to share it:

What would it mean to live in a city whose people were changing each other’s despair into hope?

You yourself must change it.

What would it feel like to know your country was changing?

You yourself must change it.

Though your life felt arduous, new, and unmapped and strange,

What would it mean to stand on the first page of the end of despair?

From “Dreams before waking” by Adrienne Rich, 1983

How many different ways have people spoken or penned the thought that we are the change we seek in the world, and that if anything will change, it must happen within us first?  I like the way this author put those thoughts into her thoughful prose 🙂

Ah ha moments

Not to spoil the ending, but everything is going to be OK.
And if it is not – it’s just not over yet!

 

There comes a time in each one of our lives when we finally get it!

We finally realize that Love is the greatest goal, the greatest vision, the greatest technique and the only thing that ever brings true fulfillment.  Love is the doorway to the soul, thru the heart.  We can change our minds, our thoughts and our actions when we choose Love.  And we can make this choice, now, and then again, in every moment, in every circumstance.  I choose Love, I choose that power, that peace, as my reality, and I stand back as waves of Love pour out and affect everything in this world.

Love, Love and more Love!

Love Thyself

” There are two basic motivating forces:  fear and love.
When we are afraid, we pull back from life.  When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement,   and acceptance.
We need to learn to love ourselves first, and in all our glory and imperfections.
If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create.
Evolution and all our hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open hearted vision of people who embrace life. ”
John Lennon

A quote from the Bible that seems to collaborate this basic need we as human beings have to Love ourselves, all aspects of ourselves…
Proverbs 19:8

Whoever gets sense loves his own soul; he who keeps understanding will discover good.
There seems to be a great deal of depth in this one sentence alone, something to ponder…
