For freedom
To take us away
From our fear
We searched
The earth
For love
As we
Key To be

Food for thought

Personal transformation can
and does have global effects.
As we go,
so goes the world,
for the world is us.
The revolution that will save the world
is ultimately a personal one.

By Kahlil Gibran
Out of suffering
have emerged
the strongest souls;
the most massive characters
are seared with scars.

By letting it go
it all gets done.

The world is won
by those who let it go. But when you try and try.

The world is beyond the winning.

Food for thought

Tell your heart that the fear of suffering
is worse than the suffering itself.
And no heart has ever suffered
when it goes in search of its dream.
Have a lovely weekend my friends
and take care :)

Moments of silence


My heart longs to be dissolved
In wings of air
And fly in the unhorizoned sky.
I long to open up
All my heart doors
In the delight of my liberation - life.

May my life begin
With the breath of a new hope

Don't look at your form, however ugly or beautiful.
Look at love and at the aim of your quest. ...

O you whose lips are parched,
keep looking for water. Those parched lips are proof
that eventually you will reach the source.

Poem about Meditation
by Thich Nhat Hahn

To meditate does not mean to fight with a problem.
To meditate means to observe.Your smile proves it.
It proves that you are being gentle with yourself, that the sun of awareness is shining in you,
that you have control of your situation.You are yourself,
and you have acquired some peace.

Inspiration Stories

Two Raindrops by Joseph Morris

Two little raindrops were born in a shower,
And one was so pompously proud of his power,
He got in his head an extravagant notion,
He'd hustle right off and swallow the ocean.A blade of grass that grew by the brook
Called for a drink, but no notice he took
Of such trifling things.
He must hurry to be
Not a mere raindrop, but the whole sea.

A stranded ship needed water to float,
But he could not bother to help a boat.
He leaped in the sea with a puff and a blare--
And nobody even knew he was there!

But the other drop as along it went
Found the work to do for which it was sent:
It refreshed the lily that drooped its head,
And bathed the grass that was almost dead.

It got under the ships and helped them along,
And all the while sang a cheerful song.
It worked every step of the way it went,
Bringing joy to others, to itself content.

At last it came to its journey's end,
And welcomed the sea as an old-time friend.
"An ocean," it said, "there could not be
Except for the millions of drops like me."

Miracles occur naturally as expressions of love.
The real miracle is the love that inspires them.
In this sense everything that comes from love is a miracle.
I hope your weekends will be as light and lovely as these flowers :)

The spiritual path -
is simply the journey of living our lives.
Everyone is on a spiritual path;
most people just don't know it.

Maya Angelou;

I don't know if I continue, even today, always liking myself. But what I learned to do many years ago was to forgive myself. It is very important for every human being to forgive herself or himself because if you live,
you will make mistakes- it is inevitable.
But once you do and you see the mistake,
then you forgive yourself and say,
well, if I'd known better I'd have done better,' that's all.
So you say to people who you think you may have injured, 'I'm sorry,' and then you say to yourself, 'I'm sorry.'
If we all hold on to the mistake,
we can't see our own glory in the mirror
because we have the mistake between our faces and the mirror;
we can't see what we're capable of being.
You can ask forgiveness of others,
but in the end the real forgiveness is in one's own self.

I think that young men and women are so caught by the way they see themselves. Now mind you. When a larger society sees them as unattractive, as threats, as too black or too white or too poor or too fat or too thin or too sexual or too asexual, that's rough. But you can overcome that. The real difficulty is to overcome how you think about yourself.”

I just started my new job this week. And being around different new people again brings a lot of new lessons. It provides me with the chance to look at myself in a new frame. It made me happy to discover this week that I am able now to look at my behaviour in a loving way instead of judging myself immediately. This quote of Maya Angelou is therefore a constant reminder for me. Take care my friends and have a lovely day :)
