I do think that it is often the unseen acts of bravery that are the most courageous… And I’m not talking about someone saving an old lady from getting run over by a bus and no one was around to watch or something, no.
I’m talking about being real, being true, being authentic, being who you really are. That sort of inner, miraculous feat that no one really realises is happening except for you.
If at any point, in any day, of any moment of your life, you find that you can say, ‘I allowed myself to feel how I felt’ or ‘I didn’t let them change me’ or ‘I got out of bed today even though it hurt’ or ‘I believe in myself’ or ‘I will try’ or any statements similar (those ones that bring a bubbling, quiet joy, a singing feeling of self satisfaction, to the surface – if you’re honest with yourself about it, if you realise what it all means)… It’s YOU. I’m talking about YOU. YOU are courageous. YOU have fortitude. YOU are brave.
You know what, I actually think it is really brave to even exist, too. Life is beautiful, wonderful and so ALIVE. Sometimes, too alive. Everything, every moment is fragile and just as precious as the other one. Every single moment is constantly disappearing. There are no take backs, no second draws. It’s like the whole thing is just…we are all taking a HUGE risk with every breath we take – moment by moment we reaffirm our commitment to life and living it, even as each of these moments (these which make up our life, our very existence as we know it) shatter behind us.
And every second, you’re propelled into the next moment whether you asked for it or not…the one you were in is disappearing, so you just, you gotta go, you HAVE to keep moving, lest you disappear too.
So, truly, if you are still breathing here today, if I were wearing a hat, it would be off to you.
People think that love can’t be: fantastical, full-blown, passionate and an everything-ness that ‘dreamers’ believe in.
Those people have just been lied to, lied to themselves and/or lost their faith.
If you believe in it, it IS (and can always be).
Love only fades or falls into supposed ‘natural’ complacency over time, if you allow that, and if you believe that is what you deserve.
Well, you don’t. You deserve more. You deserve the truth. You deserve the truest, most fulfilling, never-ending, compassionate and beautiful love that is the real love. It is the only kind.
And if he doesn’t see me for the truth of who I am, and the beauty of what I am, then he doesn’t know me at all, and most certainly doesn’t deserve to experience that.
I’m far-gone into passion and bliss, I’m a believer in the eternal nature of compassion and hope, of love and stability – no one says it’s effortless, no one says it’s easy or hard – YOU decide. You decide everything, every moment of your life. And I decide to love fully, wholly, wildly, fantastically, over-the-top, stars in our eyes, dancing at every wedding and believing in the future, believing because it’s automatic when you look at each other, and if you don’t, then what the fuck are you doing?
To love any other way…is half-love. I am made up of whole love, and only that.
It is important to remember that the journey to find happiness will always seem never ending because the happiness you’re looking for is within the journey itself. You are not really on a ‘journey’ at all. You cannot ‘achieve’ happiness because you already have it. It is always there. You just have to notice it.
Souls love. That’s what souls do. Egos don’t, but souls do. Become a soul, look around, and you’ll be amazed-all the beings around you are souls. Be one, see one. When many people have this heart connection, then we will know that we are all one, we human beings all over the planet. We will be one. One love. And don’t leave out the animals, and trees, and clouds, and galaxies-it’s all one. It’s one energy. It comes through in individual ways, but it’s one energy. You can call it energy, or you can call it love. I like to look at a tree and see that it’s love. Don’t you?
Doctor Who, cats, 1L of coconut water, joy, fear, violet extra-dimensional energy everywhere, faeries here and there, awesome summery, flowery cotton pyjama pants, cool breeze through the front door that brings in the smell of the ocean, new flamingo ornament on my bookcase, a wooden rainbow cat named frankfurt on my table and the familiar sound of the frog that lives just outside… helloooo my summer nights.
See the value in that which you are resisting – whether it is a situation, your feelings, a person, an event… Consider the value of what that negative feeling experience can offer you and it will transform. Seeking the positive aspects will change how you feel about the experience and as we know, our emotions are vibration and vibration builds the physical SO the actual experience you are resisting or avoiding will change into a more positive one. Whether you are viewing this in hindsight or in anticipation, the vibration will change and so the future will change.
