Can Any Beauty Match This?

When the sun within speaks,
when love reaches out its hand
and places it upon another,

any power
the stars and planets
might have upon us,

any fears
you can muster
can become
so rightfully insignificant.

What one heart
can do for another heart,
is there any beauty
in the world
that can match this?

Brotherhood, sisterhood,
humanity becomes the joy
and the emancipation.

— Hafiz

Creating Out Of Love

“When you decide something in consciousness, you have to become very aware of the aspect of the self that you are choosing to create from…You can ask this question any day:

Am I creating out of love, out of the light, or am I creating out of a fear-based reaction to something in my world?

When you understand where you are creating from, you become aware of everything in your world that has been created out of fear.

I am choosing to stand in my awareness as the Creative Source that brings about the change that is required in my life… as I begin to identify myself through my choices as the one empowered to create change.”

— Paul Selig
The Book of Love and Creation

You Were Created From Ecstasy

“Love is complete
and utter self-worthiness
and creativity,
while guilt
is a belief
in lack of self-worth…

You were created from ecstasy.
That ecstasy is your essence;
do not forget that!

It is your birthright.
Everything you do
can be an act of love,
done with an effortless
ease of creativity.”

— Bashar, Darryl Anka

Love Is The Great Work

Love
Is the great work
Though every heart is first an
Apprentice

That slaves beneath the city of Light.

This wondrous trade,
This magnificent throne your soul
Is destined for–

You should not have to think
much about it,

Is it not clear
An apprentice needs a teacher
Who himself

Has charmed the universe
To reveal its wonders inside his cup.

Happiness is the great work,
Though every heart must first become
A student

To one
Who really knows
About Love.

— Hafiz

Love And Kindness

“Love and kindness are never wasted.
They always make a difference.
They bless the one who receives them,
and they bless you, the giver.”

— Barbara de Angelis

Practicing loving people is so much fun and so rewarding as well, though I seek no reward. It is built from the simplest compliment to flat out telling someone that you love them. And, what is also interesting is that it gets easier and more fun with the practice.

Love and kindness in all forms are never wasted. They always make a difference. They bless the one who received them, and they bless you, the giver.

Spread Some Joy Today. Truly, love and kindness top the list of creating joy in others and in yourself.

Silence Is Golden

“Silent gratitude isn’t much use to anyone.”

— G. B. Stern

Say what? I have to totally 100 percent disagree with this quote.

I use silent gratitude all day long. I look out the window at the trees, blue sky, clouds, whatever is going on with the natural environment around me and I sing grateful praises silently. I go for a walk and do the same thing. I think of people and think the same thing. In fact, the vast majority of my gratitude is silent and unlike the quote above, I think it is of huge value to me and to others around me. I do believe that my attitude created by my gratitude affects others without any words.

If you want to see love expand in your life, just begin singing praises of what you see around you throughout your day. You will be amazed at the difference in a very short time.

It’s Never Too Late To Begin Being Grateful!

Spread Some Joy Today–show people how much you love them with your eyes and your demeanor. Words are good but optional.

Grand In Scope, Weightless In Spirit

“To desire is to obtain;
to aspire is to achieve.”

“You will become as small
as you controlling desire;
or as great
as your dominant aspiration.”

— James Allen

I am fascinated with the word, aspire. It sort of makes wants and desires little things. It is grand in scope and weightless in spirit. It means to rise, to ascend, to soar and in Latin, it means to breathe upon. That makes me think about breathing life into something. A desire is wanting something, but to aspire is to become, to intend.

When I am considering and dreaming of and playing with my aspirations, I feel free and alive and full of hope and wonder at the same time. What is happening here and now is of little importance. It is more like a connection with the Infinite and what possibilities exist regardless of circumstances, past history, or any other limiting factor.
