"It is difficult for a woman to define her feelings in language which is chiefly made by men to express theirs." - Thomas Hardy There are times when I do not know how to express what I am feeling, with out making myself feel little or less than or somehow diminished This quote, to an extent, enlightens me. I do not think that this lack of expression is due to the creators of the language, but our inability to fully appreciate how much language to do for us in revealing ourselves to us. Syntax is an amazing thing. Words powerful. Back them with feelings - you have the power to change the outcome of history.
"I am involved in a freedom ride protesting the loss of the minority rights belonging to the few remaining earthbound stars. All we demanded was our right to twinkle." - Marilyn Monroe Never let anyone steal your light, your joy or your peace. There are so many circumstances out of our control, but our attitude and perspective is ours. Be a light, a star twinkling. It is your God blessed and given right.
"As ye have faith so shall your powers and blessings be. This is the balance..." ~ Abdu'l-Baha Faith is not a tricky thing, though some might suggest it is. Faith is very much like love - it is. It asks for everything, and in return gives everything. It is light, it is hope, it is...the stuff that life needs to live. With the vision of faith, we move forward. We are capable of perseverance and persistance with faith. It creates balance. It is balance.
"If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on." ~ Steve Jobs
All relationships require work, and the amount we put in may not equal what we get out. What we need to remember is that "what we put in" is as much for us as it is for those we build with. If you settle, what true work are you putting in?, there is an inherent self-conceit in it. In life, I chose to make my objective love, gratitude and joy - and to share it.
"If you don't design your own life plan, chances are you'll fall into someone else's plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much." - Jim Rohn
In our lives, we chose how involved we are -- within ourself, with those around us, and those to come. Whether or not we understand what the Creator has prepared for us is not the point, ours is to continually move forward and ahead and plan our paths and be aware that they may not always work out, but at least we have motion and action in play....after all, Columbus set his hope on India and made his way to America.
"A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world." - Oscar Wilde in my dreams the complexities are clearer and answers are found, and when i wake i am back in a slight haze. which reality means more?, the one that allows me to fly or the one that anchors me down? both, and neither, are real - what is real is this heart that allows me to love and hopes to see the light...
"Perhaps everything terrible is in its deepest being something helpless that wants help from us." - Rainer Maria Rilke Everything has a beginning and an end, a cycle of birth and rebirth. Here is where this journey begins, mid cycle - pressing towards rebirth.
