Soul Family…

Soul Family…

 

Are those that gather around you in your

life, not connected by blood or race, but by

energy and essence.  They bring

unconditional love and support at the perfect

times and understand and share the same

mission and purpose.

For  You I am grateful.  We are one.

The sacred…

The sacred…


The elders say men should

look at a woman in a sacred

way.  The men should never

put women down or shame them

in any way.  When we have

problems, we should seek their

counsel.  We should share with

them openly.  A woman has

intuitive thought.  She has access

to another system of knowledge

that few men develop.  She can

help us understand.  We must

treat her in a good way.

~TheGreatSpiritGod

Respect should be a mutual thing

between both men and women.

 

The more one can respect another,

the more respect is drawn back to you.

 

If you want to argue with someone,

you will find that if you provoke arguing,

you will get more of in return.

 

If you honor each other you will find

the sacred in each other.

 

Life should be considered sacred,

sharing your love and joy together.

Happiness is about…

Happiness is about…

 

You’re going to realize it one day–

that happiness was never about

your job, or your degree, or being in

a relationship.  One day, you’re

going to see it — that happiness

was always about the discovery, the

hope, the listening to your heart.

Happiness was always about being

kinder to yourself, it was always

about embracing the person you

were becoming.  One day, you will

understand.  That happiness was

always about learning how to live

with yourself, that happiness was

never in the hands of other people.

It was always about you.  It was

always about you.

~Bianca Sparacino

Do whatever you need to do

to be happy.

 

Learn everything you can

about your true, loving self and then

fall in love with YOU.

 

Be the best YOU

you can be.

 

Live your life with passion and joy.

 

It’s all up to you

because it is all about YOU and

whatever life you want to live.

Understand…

Understand…

 

If we could look into each others hearts,

and understand the unique challenges

each of us faces, I think we would treat

each other much more gently,

with more love, patience, tolerance, and care.

~sun-gazing.com

We often judge others on appearance only.

What we see on the surface.

And often that is all we have to go on.

 

But if we could look into

each others hearts and lives,

we would find something much different.

 

The struggles people are having may show up

as someone being cranky or short tempered

while what is really going on is that

their family member just died and they are

completely stricken with grief.

 

Not wanting to appear weak,

they put on a brave face and try to carry on.

 

So the more understanding we can be,

and the more compassion we can show,

the better off we all are.

 

Our reaction actually reflects

our own maturity and our place in life.

 

We all have challenges

so share as much LOVE as you can

while living your best life ever.

The people you meet…

The people you meet…

 

Sometimes you meet someone,

and it’s so clear that

the two of you,

on some level belong together.

As lovers, or as friends,

or as family,

or as something entirely different.

You just work,

whether you understand

one another 

or you’re in love

or you’re partners in crime.

You meet these people

throughout your life,

out of nowhere,

under the strangest circumstances,

and they help you feel alive.

Midlife is…

”I think midlife is when the universe gently places

her hands upon your shoulders, pulls you close,

and whispers in your ear:

I’m not screwing around. It’s time.

All of this pretending and performing – these coping mechanisms

that you’ve developed to protect yourself from feeling inadequate

and getting hurt – has to go.

 

Your armor is preventing you

from growing into your gifts.

 

I understand that you needed these protections

when you were small.

I understand that you believed

your armor could help you secure

all of the things you needed to feel worthy

of love and belonging,

but you’re still searching and you’re more lost than ever.

 

Time is growing short. There are unexplored adventures ahead of you.

You can’t live the rest of your life worried about what other people think.

You were born worthy of love and belonging.

Courage and daring are coursing through you.

 

You were made to live and love with your whole heart.

It’s time to show up and be seen.

Empathy…

Empathy…

“When you plant lettuce, if it does not grow well, you
don’t blame the lettuce. You look for reasons it is not
doing well. It may need fertilizer, or more water, or
less sun. You never blame the lettuce. Yet if we have
problems with our friends or family, we blame the other
person. But if we know how to take care of them, they will
grow well, like the lettuce. Blaming has no positive
effect at all, nor does trying to persuade using reason
and argument. That is my experience. No blame, no
reasoning, no argument, just understanding. If you
understand, and you show that you understand, you can
love, and the situation will change”
Thich Nhat Hanh

The velveteen rabbit…

The velveteen rabbit…

 

He said, “You become.  It takes 

a long time.  That’s why it doesn’t 

happen often to people who break

easily, or have sharp edges, or who

have to be carefully kept.  Generally,

by the time you are Real, most of

your hair has been loved off, and your

eyes drop out and you get loose in

the joints and very shabby.  But these

things don’t matter at all, because once

you are Real you can’t be ugly, except

to people who don’t understand.”

 

 

*

This is a wonderful story about love.

Anyone who can love in an unconditional way, like loving someone who has most of their hair loved off,

is someone to be treasured.

 

Most people are only looking for someone else to complete them in some way,

or to do all of the things that they don’t want to do.

 

Things like;

  • Cooking them breakfast.
  • Cooking them dinner every night.
  • Giving them sex on demand.
  • Continuous appreciation.
  • Endless compliments.
  • Liking all of their crazy ideas.
  • Giving them money.
  • Supporting them in every way.
  • Buying them things.
  • Making them feel like Superman.
  • Doing all of the house work.
  • Washing their clothes.
  • Washing the dishes.
  • Paying the bills.

If this sounds like people you have known,

you understand how nice it would be to be loved unconditionally

instead of having to follow all of these conditions to receive anything back.

 

It’s just not worth it, and quite honestly, impossible to please someone like this.

 

They are so entitled, and so easily offended, there is really NO WAY to please them.

No matter what you do for someone like this, they always want more.

They may be pleased for the moment, but they are always looking for someone better.

Someone who REALLY loves them.

 

So it’s no wonder that their relationships don’t last very long.

 

There is no love to be reciprocated.  Only pretending.

Only using someone for their own self gratification, so that they can feel loved.

 

Endless promises that don’t mean a darned thing.

Like marriage vows once you get divorced.

People are so fickle and conditional.

 

Not at all like the velveteen rabbit who was loved and loved

and loved some more.

Who became who he was  by being loved, and living life

in a real kind of way.

Your features…

Your features…


 

 

“You do not understand

your features.

Your features are not your

beautiful nose, your beautiful

cheeks, beautiful lips, and so on.

These are not your features.

 

Your features are

Your beautiful behavior,

Your beautiful character,

Your beautiful health,

Your beautiful spirit,

Your beautiful advice,

Your beautiful wisdom,

Your beautiful inspiration.”

~Yogi Bhajan

There is so much more to a person than their physical looks.

Whether you are very beautiful and young, or if you are more of a plain looking person, or of a senior age, it doesn’t really matter.  Whether you have gorgeous well groomed hair, or a short bobbed off hair cut.

Whatever suits you at the time is who you are.

 

But don’t get caught up in the beauty only

because it will all fade in time anyway.

 

Your real features are your personality traits.

Whether you are a patient and kind person, who is well liked or whether you are impatient and high strung requiring your own space.

Whether you are truly a tolerant person or whether you just talk and write about being tolerant and then quickly judge any one who is different than yourself.

Whether you truly love life and the people you are with or whether you just pretend to like them to get what you can from them.

All of these things contribute to your true features whether they are beautiful, or not.

You may even be able to fake some of the qualities you don’t like about yourself for a time being –  but eventually they will come out – just like the fact that physical beauty will fade away.

It’s just a matter of time.

Other features increase with time.

 

Patience for example, is a virtue that is of great value.

As it increases your life will become one that expresses more grace and ease.

These are definitely beautiful qualities.

And the more you practice these qualities the more they will increase in your life.

Allowing you to become what ever you want to be.

 

Focus on these true features instead of your physical features and watch your life

change

in many ways for the better.
