Life’s Rocky Road

There will always be rocks in the road ahead of us. They will be stumbling blocks or stepping stones; it all depends on how you use them ~ Friedrich Nietzsche

We tend to allow negative thoughts to amass like great piles of rock.Β  We need to develop the Art of Wisdom and put it into practice. To become more self aware. To reach a state of consciousness where we can achieve freedom of mind and spirit. Balance. When we return to the center of our hearts through mindful living we will come to realize our true authentic self and find our sense of purpose. To Love and be Loved. We should build our Life Foundations on strength of character and replace the rocks heavy with Anger, Hate, Ignorance and Intolerance with spiritually light rocks.Β  Rocks made up of Compassion, Respect, Truth, Humility, Generosity, Sacrifice, Wisdom and Love.

Especially Love.

    Very true, and those rocks weigh us down big time. Over time, negative experiences can really taint us. Need to find healthy ways to let all that stuff go πŸ™‚

        Letting things go is getting easier in ways, but my circle has grown smaller too. I’d to meet more enlightened people. Our society sadly seems to be focusing on the wrong values πŸ™‚

        It is isn’t it? It has always been said that being social is healthy… like you, my circle is getting smaller as well. Less drama and my days pass by more quietly it seems 😁

    I can opt to use my rocks, to make emotional cairns, marking where I’ve been on this rocky road.
