Time takes care of the wounds

Today, take some time to look back in your life, go back one, two, or three years. How different is your life now? How different are you now? When in times of crisis, perhaps feeling powerless, you've had to rise to the occasion and thereby become empowered. But in life, there's also other times when although you've done all you could, tried hard, given your best, you didn't get to your chosen destination. It takes courage to turn inward and get honest about what you are really feeling and acknowledge your emotions after your journey didn't take you where you hope it would. 

The road to finding happiness is tough and if we use all the energy of the battles won and lost to let our minds be filled with high ideals, new dreams of wonders and miracles, we'll have the emotional fuel to help create a new era, for ourselves and others too. There are countless futures which exist at the same time for us. Our own behavior determines which of these futures we enter.

Time takes care of the wounds and one must take time to retreat to be nourished and rejuvenate before he can begin again. Nurture your own 'shine'. Think of yourself as a growing plant. A plant puts forth beautiful blooms when it has the energy to do so. The more it is fed, the less energy it needs for growth. If at any point our personal growth requires too much effort, we must try to find the needed nourishment. The river of life can take us to many places, we shouldn't expect to be on, creative and productive all the time. We must learn how our own light needs to be nourished and supported.

Be grateful for every journey we take no matter how simple or difficult it is. We learn. We grow. Gratitude can be absolutely transformational. Shifting perspective from playing the victim or constantly ''taking'' from life, to being grateful for  each moment as they pass, can dramatically shift not only how you show up in life, but also how life shows up for you.

Silence, give us voice

Stop for a moment - in silence. To appreciate how far you have traveled, in a relatively short period of time. But, also stop, to acknowledge those places in your mind and heart still in need of healing. Our psyche is incredibly complex and healing takes time as we work through layer upon layer of mental, emotional and psychic energy that has been solid for years, trying to find that fluidity we've lost along the way.

Life is pushing us. Each day we face new obstacles and new challenges.This is a time to keep our focus, our intention on our prime direction. So be on it - be alert.Take some time for yourself and detach a little bit. Breathe in and out and feel the presence of the peaceful warrior inside you, get some space and really look at things from all sides, from all angles.

The magic word is 'try'. Try and observe your mind and heart open. Be curious about life. Be engaged in the magic of the moment. Be in your heart. Nourish and protect your childlike innocence and be open to new ideas and fresh perspectives. Let go of the need to criticize and judge. Don't let this or anything kill your creativity. Instead allow yourself to make mistakes. It is the only way to learn what serves you and what doesn't serve you.

Be a force of good in the world. All things are possible when you trust your instincts. Liberate the mind first and freedom will follow. Stop for a moment in silence to find your voice again.

We, together

We cannot eliminate loneliness, but we can hold each other.

We cannot eliminate hunger, but we can feed each other.

We cannot eliminate pain, but we can live a life of compassion.

We cannot eliminate fear, but we can support and encourage each other.

We grow strong when we are aligned with the power of nature and the earth. 

Expressing who we are is more than being understood, it is about not hiding our true nature. 

We. Together.
