It is at the edge of a petal that love waits ~ William Carlos William
Love has many meanings and for the most part we tend to get caught up in its complexities and try to be too many things to too many people. We lose our sense of balance and we either take more than we need or we give away far too much of our self, our very essence. We tend to look beyond the obvious, that Love begins with us. Once we make that deeper connection to self we realize the power of self love. To truly give our love to others we have to first love ourselves and when we put it into practice then and only then will we experience an awakening.
Our life path seemingly rickety and likened to a skeleton stretched across a barren land but in that moment of awakening, there love waits.
Within you there is a stillness and sanctuary to which you can retreat at any time and be yourself ~ Hermann Hesse
So many of us go through life being supportive of others. Always offering a helping hand or a shoulder to lean on. All of which is a drain on our spiritual equilibrium. Never, or very seldom, do we take time for ourselves. In order to get in touch with our needs and desires, we must embrace self-awareness and self-love. I have found the best way to align Mind, Body and Spirit is through Meditation and EFT tapping.
To discover inner peace we need to take command of our thoughts which in turn will bring about a harmonious and balanced state of mind. By restoring our energy balance and becoming more aware and mindful of ourselves, we will be free to live our lives within our realm of Love, Peace and Tranquility ♥♥
Every so often I have come across someone who practices the Art of Indifference… and believe me, it is an Art. I wonder to myself if this is something that they have learned along Life’s way, from a parent or has it been there within the very core of their beings right from the start? Out of all the emotions, I think indifference is the most calculating of them all. Only when you are on the receiving end of indifference do you feel the impact of its power. We can overcome anger, we can change attitudes with love but as long as indifference stands in our way, nothing will change. The person who holds indifference close to their heart in the end, has no heart.
The authentic true self that we recognize when we look at ourselves in a mirror. Those first moments as a young child when we see our reflection and recognize the person staring out at us. The moment when we look into those eyes, into that conscience, and realize that no matter how many stories become fabricated fragments of ourselves over time.. eventually our authentic truth will balance everything out.
Always be true to yourself because one day you might come face to face with your conscience ~ Grady
