heart.mind.body.and soul


when you let me fill your empty walls…
you filled my empty heart
you have made me stand tall
and that made me make a new start
i saw myself as a human being
capable of love and believing
that walls need to crumble down
as my heart ends its frown.
i am not looking for something
but something stirred up inside me
maybe it would be worth trying
maybe i should just wait and see.
you had the key ….so unexpectedly
my walls fell down the ground
like a crashing tidal wave
the fortress i thought
i would bring to my grave
the walls i have long fought.
left me yearning to love you more
and the fear of loving you
has brought me up and back to the floor
as i reach for the pieces
of the walls you let fall
to let me in… inside your heart
inside your mind… body and soul.

my eye


I dont like what i see
When i look at myself straight in the eye
The fear and the uncertainty
Is something that i so defy.

For everything that i would give
Only to be able to re live
The life and zest that sparkled
and radiates to behold.

Fear is foreign to me
I loathe the days when i see
Fear masked with security
Creeping out of the black circle
Emptied and hallow unacceptable.

I worked so hard to be so fearless
And made sure i am to be harmless
But when things spiral down i recall
I cannot always be in full control.

So i sink back in and try to sulk
Drown all my sorrows and evoke
All the good possibilities i can hope.

For somewhere deep inside i know.
There is light behind each shadow
That i will come across today
This may or may never really stay.

So lost was i then . And i now feel
Like running around in circles that seem ureal
Like the air that i breath in
I wear the mask of strength like a second skin.

I may fool other people and they believe
I am to be strong and not grieve
But there are the very few
That i could never really lie to.

I may laugh and still be the same
Play along and cover the shame
That fear has caused me to hide
The light inside that never leave my side.

These few i hold close to my heart
Are the very ones who is very much a part
Of my soul and they give me strength
To endure anyting at any length.

I refuse to lean on to them
But there are times when i stem
Out of proportion and reveal
The fear that i think is never real.

I know this happens for a reason
Why i go thru what i have to
I may or may never be able to fathom
Its just really something that i must do.

So if you ever walk my path… and still see me smile
Dont let the curve fool you even for a little while
You will only see what i wanted to show everyone
But my eyes can only tell you the truth
…look into my eyes to see if the fear is gone.

What We Are Made Of [Choose Love]

What We Are Made Of
Choose Love
by Madisyn Taylor

source

Make all decisions from pure love and the world will change.

Love is often presented as the opposite of fear, but true love is not opposite anything. True love is far more powerful than any negative emotions, as it is the environment in which all things arise. Negative emotions are like sharks swimming in the ocean of love. All things beautiful and fearful, ugly and kind, powerful and small, come into existence, do their thing, and disappear within the context of this great ocean. At the same time, they are made of the very love in which they swim and can never be separated. We are made of this love and live our whole lives at one with it, whether we know it or not.

It is only the illusion that we are separate from this great love that causes us to believe that choosing anything other than love makes sense or is even possible. In the relative, dualistic world of positive and negative, darkness and light, male and female, we make choices and we learn from them. This is exactly what we are meant to be doing here on earth. Underlying these relative choices, though, is the choice to be conscious of what we are, which is love, or to be unconscious of it. When we choose to be conscious of it, we choose love. We will still exist in the relative world of opposites and choices and cause and effect, and we will need to make our way here, but doing so with an awareness that we are all made of this love will enable us to be more playful, more joyful, more loving and wise, as we make our way. Ultimately, the choices we make will shed light on the love that makes us all one, enabling those who have forgotten to return to the source.

This world makes it easy to forget this great love, which is part of why we are here. We are here to remember and, when we forget to remember again, to choose love.

love vs. fear.

http://freespiritualways.blogspot.com/2012/09/there-are-only-two-main-emotions-in-life.html

 

 

There are only two main emotions in life. The first is the emotion of love; every beautiful thing in this world has been created with love, by love or through love. The second is the emotion of fear- and through the emotion of fear the world has witnessed way too many atrocities to mention here in this article.

 

Every world recession, depression or financial crisis is or has been caused by fear and the deployment of this fear. People will buy into fear, because what their media tells them they accept as the doctrine truth. Now the fact that the world is in turmoil is not a lie, yet did you know that this carnage could be turned around in a flash. Through a world-collective conscious shift in believe.

 

People should get out of the fear based-economy we are in and start believing in the possibility of an economy that was never meant to be doomed or run into a cliff.

 

Fear profits a woman or man absolutely nothing, yet you do not need to fight your fears for all that the fear represents… All you need to do to overcome fears is to overrule the feeling that fears bring forth- for instance, whenever you feel anxious- force yourself to believe you feel absolutely wonderful and thrilled to be alive. Here is where vision comes into the picture, hold a vision of your goal and in this picture make only space for creative undertaking. Believe that your mind is genius and your hands are magic, for with this ultimate combination- anything you touch or come in contact with must become phenomenal, because you are phenomenal.

 

Turn your eyes away from the box of fear, where the average soul of man would not dear to think outside of the box. Do not look back at past failures; instead look ahead at the green field of opportunities that your heart longs for.

 

Just like anything else; what you do not use, you lose- and this is what we should do with fear. And for all people on this earth to lose their fears can only result in a world free for beautiful possibilities for all. People have to start believing in a world where their dreams are possible. And one of the main methods to work in this way is to look only and to see positive opportunities in every challenge we encounter.

Yes it may be called the way of the optimist… However life has never developed positively, through ways of pessimism, if we keep wearing the glasses of doom, we shall all experience a world of doom. How much effort does it take all of us in this world, to take of the glasses of doom and start looking at the world with our bare eyes and seeing the beauty that it has always constantly kept for us?

love. the greatest driving force


In my secret haven…
I hid behind the shadows of yesterday
Myself… I have never given
The choice to let my heart lead the way. Continue reading

Finding Peace In Unstable Times


Finding Peace In Unstable Times

by: Deborah Fairfull

In this article, guest author Deborah Fairfull, talks about some difficult experiences in her life and how she overcame these and found inner peace

When you are surrounded by financial doom and gloom, natural disasters and riots — it is easy to feel negative and uncertain about the future. However this is exactly the time you need to dig down deep inside yourself and tap into your inner strength. This wise, all knowing part of yourself has the ability to transform your life into one that is fulfilling, peaceful and harmonious.

During my life I have experienced many challenging times. The one thing I have discovered without exception, is that when I have been able to accept my current situation it has allowed me to relax, tap into my internal wisdom and my life has begun to flow once more.

Some of my personal challenges have included:

  • Starting up two different businesses, and being faced with challenging cashflow situations that have threatened my survival. By tapping into my inner strength and resourcefulness, I was able to overcome my cashflow problems and create viable businesses that I was able to later sell.
  • Being forced to sell the family home due to economic pressure. This led me on a path of discovery in relation to my internal world. This gave me the courage to work with my true passions paving the way to the joy of expressing my true gifts and talents. This is a different kind of joy, with more depth than the joy I’d experienced before—even though I was in a better financial situation. These discoveries allowed me to rebuild my life in a meaningful and stable way as my life is a reflection of my heart, rather than reacting to external circumstances.
  • Separating from my husband of 15 years whom I had shared three wonderful children with. We reunited four years later, just in time for our 20th wedding anniversary. This journey taught me a lot about learning to see beyond each other’s defenses and instead, appreciate the light and beauty within each other.

I used my tumultuous, unstable times as alchemy for inner peace so I could learn to experience inner stability despite what was going on around me. At the time I couldn’t understand why all these challenging things were happening to me, but I now appreciate them for the gift that they were.

How Do You Find Peace In Unstable Times?

1) Make peace with your past. Worrying over and reliving the past can take you away from enjoying the present, feeling stuck and prevent you flowing with life.

2) Make your mind your friend. Your mind takes you away from your peace by creating worry and stress. Becoming aware of your thoughts, belief and attitudes helps you to transcend a fearful mind and instead create a life that is loving and stable.

3) Your reactions are like gold. A reaction occurs when someone behaves aggressively (fight) or withdraw (flight) in a pressurized situation rather than responding from their empowered self.

However, if you are able to sit with the uncomfortable feeling that the reaction induces, rather than blaming the other person, you will heal that automatic survival response as you tap into a power greater than the reaction. You need to feel it to heal it. Next time you are in a similar situation, chances are you will not let the external circumstance take you away from your peace.

4) Let your intuition be your guide. Your intuition is like your personal GPS designed to guide you safely through life. It is your inner voice of wisdom that knows exactly what is right for you.

However it is common that we override our intuition and do what we “should” do, driven often by a fearful mind. If we make decisions based on anxiety and stress often they are not the very best decisions we can make for ourselves. When you calm your mind you are better equipped to listen to your intuition and create a life that is more flowing and peaceful.

5) Live your life on purpose. It is very hard to be truly happy if you are not expressing your natural talents or taking steps towards this. Sometimes some of life’s greatest challenges such as being retrenched can be life’s greatest gift as it opens up new doors, allowing you to step into what it is you truly love to do. If you look forward to going to work you know you are on the right path.

When you face or have faced challenging times sometimes it is easy to fall into the illusion that something is wrong with you. That you are wrong, damaged or not good enough in some way. This is the ego trying to strengthen its grip.

However, if you can remind yourself that despite any hurts you have been through you are always a divine loving individual you will be able to find that inner peace at the worst of times. When we learn to love, no matter how badly people may have treated us, we step into our true power. This gives us true strength and stability, and we remain stable and balanced despite what is going on around us.

If you’ve gone through particularly challenging experiences in your life, tell us how you overcame these and found the strength and peace within to move forward.

i love you so.


Though I can not make you happy, as much as I want to…

I can not promise you the moon and the stars but I’ll always be true.

Never doubt my love for you, you may not see it,

But it’ll always be there… I promise to always be fair. Continue reading

embracing heartbreak.


UPSIDES of HEARTACHE

♥ it gives us the chance to reflect on past mistakes, learning to accept and correct it

♥ we come to know more of what we want, or who truly meant alot in our lives

♥ because we have come to accept our mistakes, we learn to break off from the patterns of your past

♥ we make room for change to come…

♥ and with that change, we grow as a person, as a human being

♥ we learn to empathize more with others.

i find solace in the fact that i am alive and i can feel. this is the most beautiful feeling that a person can ever have. because sometimes, it is easier if the other person doesnt want you in your life anymore…
thats not a heart break…
that is us…
as a broken person because the worst heartbreak
one can have is not when the other person doesnt want you.
but it is in knowing that the two of you love each other so much
but just couldnt find the perfect time and place to cultivate that love.
