“When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives means the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving much advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a gentle and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares.”

Henri Nouwen

“At times, although one is perfectly in the right, one’s legs tremble,” wrote philosopher V.V. Rozanov. “At other times, although one is completely in the wrong, birds sing in one’s soul.” …………There are a couple of caveats, though: The beautiful truth won’t be simple and bright; it’ll be dense, convoluted, and kaleidoscopic. And the birds’ songs will sound more like a philharmonic orchestra pounding out Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony than a single flute playing a quaint folk song.

Remember all those friends who were going to be your “bestest” pals forever and a day until the end of time? Now that some have passed on and others were just rats leaving a sinking ship. Gotta say, however, that there are people who have been just as disappointed in you. Not everyone, though. Even in this moment when you don’t know where the hell you are headed, at least you know who your true friends are.

Liberation lies within what you love to do ……………… it is as simple as that and yet again it may not seem so. Lift the veil and see the truth that once you follow your heart’s desire everything suddenly feels so much easier. You don’t necessarily have to believe me, but for the sake of it why not give it a try; you may just be amazed at how rewarding it is once you first get started.

 Try not to sit in judgment of others – you don’t always know what their journey has been like.The tides turn on everyone, now and then.

Everybody has something of value that they can share with others – even if it is just some time or even a smile.

 Dare to be different and aim for the experience of a lifetime.

Give people the love they need and you will find that the love you require will come to you as well

You continue to learn that the only valid way to control life is to change the way you perceive it. As Marianne Williamson says, “You are heir to the laws of the world you believe in.” Meaning that as long as you perceive yourself as being powerless or separated from the goodness you want in your life, you will continue to experience that reality.

Follow whatever intuitively streams into you. It will not require any effort or force, simply openness and trust..
