Make your own Music

Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything  ~ Plato

Take a step back and observe life’s different perspectives. It is easy to get caught up in the hubbub of mass thinking. You can follow a Marching Band, and misstep your way through life,  lose sight of your passions, or you can march to the beat of a different drummer.

Make your own music. Listen to your Heart.

Shadow Dancing

We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves ~ Buddha

In life we have choices. We can allow ourselves to get caught up in the everyday tumultuous dances or we can trip the light fantastic in the magnificent Grand Ballroom of Life. Either way our shadows will follow.  Choose wisely.

Dance with Joy!

Solitude

Seeking Solitude is a deliberate choice.  A quiet space or place where one can feel free to savor moments of quiet reflection. To meditate with firm intention. To change old habits with mindful thinking. To recharge your energy. Uplift your mind, body and spirit. Reawaken familiar yearnings.  A place within where thoughts are free to stay.  Or,  go wherever one’s spirit desires. A flight of fancy, a soaring of the imagination. All this and more can be achieved when in quiet solitude.

Love •  Peace •  Tranquility

 

Indifference

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.

Step away from the maddening crowd and find your place of quiet repose.  Look within and find your passion then paint your life in vibrant colors. Find your truth and tell no lies and live in alignment with your purpose.

Find your bliss. Where heart dances to love’s sweet melody.
Where spirit gambols in delight.

Some people open up new worlds within us. Don’t always assume there will be many more to come as a great understanding between two beings is often rare.  Be sure to nurture and fiercely appreciate these beautiful friendships and connections.  You already know who they are.  ~ Victoria Erikson
