How To Keep Love Flowing In Life

Unplug your heart from the intermittent power of outside and entrust her to the source within. Let her generate Love unremittingly: Love flowing, in, and, out, just as you breathe.“When you are joyous, look deep into your heart and you shall find it is only that which has given you sorrow that is giving you joy. When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.”

Khalil Gibran, 1883 – 1931, Poet, Writer, Artist, Theologian

Why Your Instincts Are Your Wisest Teachers

Your instincts are one of your best teachers in life. Because, they focus only on one individual - You.“Follow your instincts. That’s where true wisdom manifests itself.”

Oprah Winfrey, Talk Show Host, Media Mogul, Author, Producer, Philanthropist

When you are thrown into the deep end, you automatically find solutions. Your instincts tell you stuff, they even do stuff for you, in order to survive.

Yet, I wonder why we have to wait until we fall into the deep end, before we start listening to our instincts.

Why not do that right now?

Your instincts come from you. They (more…)

Finding Empowerment In Solitude

Moments of solitude are empowering because you will have nothing else to turn to but yourself; slowly and eventually, you start to become more honest with yourself. You may then authenticate your life personally, as you've always wanted. - Empowerment in solitude“True silence is the rest of the mind, and is to the spirit what sleep is to the body, nourishment and refreshment.”

William Penn, 1644 – 1718, Philosopher, Entrepreneur, Founder of Pennsylvania (U.S.A. state)

Silence is a good place to start — to understand yourself firmly so you may face the clamor of the crowds. So you may know the difference between guidance and instructions, when to accept them, when to disregard them.

Silence is your home — once found, you (more…)

Can Spirituality Be A Practical Way Of Living?

What is spirituality and what is the soul? It is the bridge between the heart and the mind - to discover, not to hold. - Practical Spirituality“We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.” – Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, 1881 – 1955, Philosopher, Paleontologist

If we may cause discomfort, distress and hurt to others, then we may also be capable of causing discomfort, distress and hurt to ourselves. And if others may cause the same in us, they too will feel it.

Our natural connection with each other is what makes this possible. The truth is, we affect each other! (more…)

Upset? How To Get Out Of Pain

If you really have to, think about why you are upset, rather than what or who upset you. Get out of pain.

So we may be upset and wonder how to get out of pain. It is imprisonment, we are caged in and pushed into this feeling.

Nothing we do can seem to shake it off.

So we look outside — something which is of human nature — it could be easier to deal with our pain as if it is something external that is imposing on us.

Of course. It would be so simple if this struggle was caused by another entity other than our own selves. Then we need not take personal ownership. We would not need to do much about it. (more…)

Are You Looking For Answers?

You do not need to dig deeper if you start from the bottom. You emerged first, then came experiences and its lessons. You already know. - Looking for answers?“There is no truth except the truth that exists within you. Everything else is what someone is telling you.” 

Neale Donald Walsch, Author (of the Conversations With God series)

From the bottom of your heart, is where you could start.

The answers you are looking for, you already have.

You were born with instincts and capabilities that no one would need to teach you. And even if they did, it was you who made (more…)

Why Be Honest With Yourself?

You, speaking honestly to yourself, is the same as you praying to God.Most of the time we are reacting to ourselves rather than the external.

On a personal note, I have always sought to understand my true self and I honestly believe that has made me a calm and forgiving person. I know, that is a lot to vouch oneself for! However, I do know myself and have seen various relationships heal in my past.

I also know that it was, and at times still is, hard, painfully hard to face myself and know that my reactions come from little crevices within myself that need to be looked at. With Love. (more…)

Maya Angelou, 1928 – 2014, Poet, Author, Playwright, Performing Artist, Civil Rights Activist

Your Personal Challenges Are Empowering

Reacting to challenges that come from inside are more empowering than challenges that come from outside. Your personal challenges are empowering.

There is splendid beauty in the courage that many have shown in conquering personal challenges and making a greater difference in our world. There are memorials, tributes and award ceremonies that show gratitude and commemorate these elite acts. Yes.

Whilst we celebrate that, let us not forget about our own personal achievements — individually, each of us has conquered personal battles that were once so difficult, and have evolved from them. (more…)
