When we surrender when we do not fight with life when it calls upon us we are lifted and the strength to do what needs to be done finds us ~ Oriah Mountain Dreamer
Just like a majestic tree standing tall in the midst of rain, wind, sleet or hail. It surrenders to the elements, sways with and leans into the great forces of Nature until the clouds disperse, the sun comes out and it’s purpose becomes apparent once again. To give shade and a resting place for creatures big and small. To surround us with beauty and life. To give shelter from the storm.
So then should we be there for each other. To give shelter from life’s storms. To share the fruits of Spirit; Humility, Respect, Truth, Compassion, Courage and Generosity. To provide a Sanctuary of Love. To love and be loved.
We may not be able to grasp love with our hands or even see it with our eyes, but we forever feel it with our hearts ~ Unknown
Our Spiritual Heart is in that place deep within our innermost self. Sometimes lying dormant and oftentimes bursting with passion. It is that place where our consciousness takes root and as we nurture and grow mindfully so does our Truth, our Learning and our Capacity to Love. The Spiritual Heart awakens to the realization that everything we need to grow spiritually, is within us. Before we can love unconditionally we have to be able to give and receive unconditionally. The Spiritual Heart is pure love. Free, complete, balanced and whole.
Even a time worn figurine, seemingly powerless, has the capacity to embrace spirit and spread love through the calm and quiet of a heart of wood.
In nature, a child finds freedom, fantasy, and privacy: a place distant from the adult world, a separate peace ~ Richard Louv
Embrace the free spirited nature of your authentic self and nurture the energy that exists within. To reawaken your inner self and begin creating a life that you love is a sign of truly being a free spirit. Be the one that is constantly curious, that welcomes surprise in their life. The one that asks, “just how alive do I need to feel to be able to experience all-encompassing love?” The one that strives for balance in Mind, Body and Spirit.
Never give up on that young spirit within you, the one that sees the simplicity and beauty of nature and life through a child’s eyes.
At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us ~ Albert Schweitzer
It doesn’t happen very often, if ever, that someone comes along and rekindles that
spark of life energy within us. Especially when we have lived a full life and get to
a point where we feel that perhaps we have experienced all that we deserve in this
illusion called ‘Life’. So, when that someone appears, seemingly out of nowhere,
and shakes things up a bit. Embrace and Engage.
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
