"Dwell on the beauty of life. Watch the stars, and see yourself running from them." Marcus Aurelius

Soul Inspiration

When life feels burdensome, just remember…

You are made from the same stuff as the stars. Your soul in its essence is eternal and free. Revel in the sheer beauty of who you are!

Inspirational quotes from the poet philosopher Rumi:

“Stop acting so small. You are the universe in ecstatic motion.”

“You were born with wings, why prefer to crawl through life?”

“I want to sing like the birds sing, not worrying about who hears or what they think.”

“Let yourself be drawn by the stronger pull of that which you truly love.”

“Set your life on fire. Seek those who fan your flames”

“And you? When will you begin that long journey into yourself?”

“Respond to every call that excites your spirit.”

“You are not a drop in the ocean. You are the entire ocean in a drop.”

Your Love

Infinite love already exists in everything that is alive, including you and me. Our love lessons are about removing the obstacles to love. They teach us out how to access, express and live it, if we choose to do so.

Fear, anger, prejudice… there are a myriad of padlocks with which we hold our love hostage. The experiences we have around love are all opportunities for self-examination. They teach us how to love better.

This can feel difficult in a world that is expressing so much dissension and “un-love”. Each of us is a key to healing it. Consider that perhaps the high tension and hatred being expressed in the world right now is a challenge to unlock our own love. Change begins within each of us.

“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.” (Rumi)

Make Someone Happy

There is a song out there that epitomizes a life philosophy, which if we all embraced it, would make the world a phenomenally better place. Somewhere along the way, society’s mandate for winning at life became about beating the other guy to “the goods”. Success started to mean a bigger house and more TVs.

But this song, when it wafted from the radio when I was a kid, spoke to me even then of how life should be. “Make Someone Happy” was written by Jule Styne, Adolph Green and Betty Comden, and first performed December 26, 1960. This song has never gone out of style – read the list of 100+ performers who sang it over 31 years – because although admittedly romantic in nature, it also expresses a fundamental truth about life.

When we are of “service to others”, when we are busy making someone else happy, we become happy too. Service to others is a core philosophy that humanity is working on “getting” as a collective, in order to shift to a higher level of vibration.

Look around you. What something can you do today for someone you know (or a stranger) that would contribute to that person’s happiness, your own happiness in the doing of it, and the bigger picture of the growth of humanity?

Let’s bring some “old-fashioned values” back into style.

Make someone happy.
Make just one someone happy
And you will be happy too

Black & White & Rainbows

Right, wrong,
north, south,
black, white,
which way do I go?

I have walked the flat
gray plain of existence
that this third dimension
too often can be,
futilely exploring
the monotones of
an oft desolate place,
where each small
blade of grass shivers
sadly in the landscape,
calling out to the sky.

And I have wondered –
If white is all color,
and black its absence,
where are the colors between?

So I’ve left that plain
and I’m climbing
a shining mountain;
I will not rest ’til
I find all the colors,
that grand view above
a too narrow horizon.
The trek is exhilarating,
the views are breathtaking,
and I’m heading for that
brilliant peak yonder.

It’s the place of my dreams,
where rainbows gleam
and eagles soar,
and my soul can live free.

My Valentine’s Card

My Valentine’s Card (to Humanity)

On the winding path of life we’re here to learn,
that love’s greatest lessons are not be be spurned.

Be faithful and true first of all to yourself,
but don’t leave your heart sitting on a back shelf.

Go bravely in the world, embrace what you see –
Life is a school to learn our humanity.

Love is the compass to navigate our way,
a world full of friendship needs no special day.

The challenge, you see, is to each do our part!
To heal the world, we must all live from the heart.
