Sharing personal stories makes you feel vulnerable, but it’s that vulnerability that resonates with and connects you to other people. Core Wainwright

On being Awakened – Words to Live by

If you want to believe that what your physical eyes can see is all that’s there, then fine, you can. Stay in that small fraction of perceptual reality if you choose. But at some point, even if that point is at the point of death, we all know better. I’ve seen cynics become mystics on their deathbeds. We are here as though in a material dream, from which the spiritual nature of our larger reality is calling us to awaken. The magician, the alchemist, the miracle-worker, is simply someone who has woken up to the material delusions of the world and decided to live another way. In a world gone mad, we can choose to be sane. In order to move ourselves, and our civilization, into the next phase of our evolutionary journey, it’s time for all of us to awaken. – Marianne Williamson from the book “A year of Miracles”

You who live by the life of this world, shame on you. Why do you live like this? If you don’t want to be dead, never be without love. Die in love if you want to be truly alive. – Shams-e Tabrizi

Motive of the day: When you can love, love compassionatly, and what is compassionatly….

When you know about those you care about the most, with time, you only look for ways to be creative to express your love for them differently. Nothing can stop you when you are certain of the love they have in return for you, and nothing can change the amount of efforts you wish to invest to express your love. Time is immeasurable then. It doesn’t matter how long you need to give to those you love. It doesn’t matter what you need to give up, it doesn’t matter how yoi need to express. There becomes no self, ego, or pride in between. Its just pure love. That is the kind of love we need to hold on to & learn from because it only teaches us about ourselves. The pure side of oneself, the Divine side of oneself. The beautiful side of life. Do not hold back then, do not use time to wait or postpone, do not over think & do not underestimate yourself. Just set your heart free. To all the beautiful mothers & fathers out there, yes mothers day is soon but it is worth celebrating love with everyone you love anyway because love is worth celebrating everyday. To those who are mothers, who act like mothers, who care, who love & who cherish with no expectations for anything in return… May this world only serve you with hope, light and love. ☀️💛 have a blessed tuesday. 

Motive of the day, Everything and everyone is interconnected through an invisible web of stories… So, speak words of wisdom.

The universe is one being. Everything and everyone is interconnected through an invisible web of stories. Whether we are aware of it or not, we are all in a silent conversation. Do no harm, practice compassion. And do not gossip behind anyone’s back, not even seemingly innocent remark. The words that come out of mouths, do not vanish but are perpetually stored in infinite space, and they will come back to us in due time. One man’s pain will hurt us all. One man’s joy will make everyone smile.

The Sufi mystic & Islamic scholar Jalal ad-Din Rumi – Rule#26 from the book 40 Rules of love by Elif Shafak

Sometimes, we have things to say, but we stop realizing the difference between an unclear image of thoughts and a message that we wish to deliver. Thoughts are not always accurate, they are not always true, they are not always honest. They can deceive us, sometimes, and sometimes, they can move us, change us, make us and break us. So when you have thoughts, let them swim. Let the waves of your thoughts move freely into the shapes they wish to take or form. Forget about time, on your wall or in your pocket. Let go of fake deadlines, and limits that only you are setting for yourself. Do not feel pressured or pursued to answer, speak or explain when you are still uncertain of the words you wish to use, meanings you wish to explain, stories you need to tell. Say what feels right at the very right time, just be honest with yourself, say that you have no answer when you are not certain, say you are not ready to explain because you still have meanings missing. When did it become a requirement for us to all have answers to each and every question we are asked. It truly makes a big difference when you speak with clarity, speak with a positive message, speak with a convinced tone of voice, speak with a comfortable smile, speak with a spark, when you speak only words of wisdom.
