Forgiveness

It is a simple word but yet it is not easy to do. There are many events in our lives that hurts us or make us hurts others, people we loved and yet this has to come from the heart and to acknowledge it to them. I guess this needs process and a lot of compassion as well as self-acceptance that we as human can make mistakes and it is important to admit it.

Forgiveness is the economy of the heart… Forgiveness saves the expense of anger, the cost of hatred, the waste of spirits.

Timeless

By the beach, beautiful sky at night, catching soft waves hit the beachside, sharing thoughts and conversation between two people who apreciate one another, and senses was spoiled by candlelight,beautiful madras meal,and lavished chocolate souffle. This togetherness means so much that i hope it stays but it will past and remain a sweet memory and shall bring soul closer.
Thank you for being my best friend and love of my life.

Dare to dream again…..!!

Good morning.
I must say, this is another personal challenging day for me, to deal with my self !!
And yet, i found this inspirational article in my e-mail this morning and it’s just so true. And guess what, i did dream riding with Roy Rogers…Just not sure who he was but i think he’s one of those character when i was kid like a hero. Not so much like Superman but hey, who are we and what we do..you can always be your own hero ūüôā so here you go, happy reading and dare to dream again my friend….

DARE TO DREAM AGAIN
by Chris Widener

“Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat.” Teddy Roosevelt

Do you remember when you were a child and no dream seemed too big? Some of us thought we would walk on the moon; some dreamed of riding with Roy Rogers; others imagined stepping to the plate in a big-league game. Every one of us, when we were young, had a common trait – we were dreamers. The world hadn’t gotten to us yet to show us that we couldn’t possibly achieve what our hearts longed for. And we were yet still years from realizing that in some cases we weren’t built for achieving our dream (I realized about my junior year of high school that I was too short and to slow to play professional basketball. The dreamer is always the last to know).

Eventually we started to let our dreams die. People began to tell us that we couldn’t do the things we wanted. It was impossible. Responsible people don’t pursue their dreams. Settle down, get a job, be dependable. Take care of business, live the mundane, be content.

Do you know what I say to that? Hooey!

It is time to dream again!

How are we today..inside-out

There are three ways of seeing life. In one people stick fast. In another they go to excess. In the third they see correctly.

In the first way, people take pleasure in all the things of life–in possessions and happenings, in families and continuation. When a teaching is proclaimed that advises nonattachment and going beyond the dictates of the self, their heart does not leap up and they are not drawn to it. In the second way, people are afflicted by hatred of life. Just as attached to life, they nonetheless revile it and make a bad thing of it to excess.

In the third way, people see life as it is–forever being and ceasing to be. They accept it willingly but are not attached and do not despair. It is they who begin to know the unconditioned.
