The path of life is clear, but not until it’s been traveled. In the immortality of youth, we are blinded by the light of our dreams, cocksure of ourselves, driven by unquestioning hope. Only when the light fades, when our youth has deserted and our hope has gone, do we turn and look back. Only then do we truly see our way.
― Avril Borthiry,
When overtaken with calamity or, tribulation, come forth undaunted and undismayed. Inspire the soul to reach for the high realms of victory and joy, and hold fast to that lofty position even though the whole world seems to disappear beneath your feet. With such a victory for your strong inspiration, your own soul will prove more than sufficient for all that life may demand of you. Then remember that mankind stands ready to welcome and exalt every soul whose strength is greater than any circumstance, whose joy is greater than any tribulation, and whose faith is greater than all doubts and failures in the world.
“Fear robs you of your freedom to make the right choice in life that can bridge the gap between where you are and where you want to be. On the other side of fear, lies freedom. If you want to grow, you need to be brave and take risks. If you’re not uncomfortable, you’re not growing.” ~Roy T. Bennett
In keeping with my Anti-Covid post, I’m sharing a few videos that I’ve either been tagged in on Social Media or emailed to me. I hope they bring you just as much inspiration as they did me.
Dare to dream! If you did not have the capability to make your wildest wishes come true, your mind would not have the capacity to conjure such ideas in the first place. There is no limitation on what you can potentially achieve, except for the limitation you choose to impose on your own imagination. What you believe to be possible will always come to pass – to the extent that you deem it possible. It really is as simple as that.” ~Anthon St. Maarten
The mind is one of our greatest assets. It’s a wonderful thing and it’s also a wandering thing. Unchecked it can wander off into blissful oblivion for hours on end, it happens to the best of us. There’s nothing at all wrong with a wandering mind as long you learn to tame that wandering mind and able to make that U-turn back to reality. Just the other day I wandered off to my grandmother’s kitchen, the smell of fresh bread and caramelized sugar permeated the room so profusely I could taste those cinnamon buns. Then I had to snap out of it. Reality was knowing at the door.
I believe that with all things in life, there is a constant need to let go of the idea of “trying hard”, there’s a heaviness in trying hard to get something, have something or be something. As long as people comply with the idea of “trying hard” they will constantly remain in a place of heaviness. The opposite of this is the state of allowing, of setting out the intentions of what you wish, putting in the required action and not self-sabotaging yourself by “trying hard” or expecting results to unfold in a particular way. Anything that’s worth something to you in life such as love, abundance, freedom, peace is in a continuous state of flow. A state of lightness is the only way to allow yourself to go with the flow of things. Heaviness only makes you become a rocky solid object at the bottom of the stream. You can see the flow of things in the life of others who embody the lightness, but you yourself become unmovable in your state of heaviness as if blocking the flow from reaching you. Will you let yourself move with the flow of abundance or sink at the bottom with the heaviness of your scarcity mindset?” ~Virgil Kalyana Mittata Iordache
