The society teaches you, "Choose the convenient, the comfortable; choose the well-trodden path where your forefathers and their forefathers and their forefathers, since Adam and Eve, have been walking. Choose the well-trodden path. That is a proof ~ so many millions of people have passed on it, you cannot go wrong."
But remember one thing: The crowd has never had the experience of truth. Truth has only happened to individuals.
Whenever there are alternatives, beware: Don't choose the convenient, the comfortable, the respectable, the socially acceptable, the honorable. Choose something that rings a bell in your heart. Choose something that you would like to do in spite of any consequences.
It's a place we love to go for an easy stroll on a quiet day. While up here I always have a silent seat in the old church.. don't know what it is about the place but I find it very soul soothing.. on this particular day the light coming in through the tiny window was smiling in the shadow of its depth, so breathtaking I wanted to try and capture it :o) only having my mobile on me, i used that.. not expecting much.. to my delight, on this rather grainy little photo that beautiful white light had been captured as pink, showing me that everything isn't exactly as it seems.. to look beyond......... Is this why the old place fills me with such peace? ..enveloped in soothing pink abundance..
have a beautiful day among the silent light of your world..
Your inner world has its own taste, has its own fragrance, has its own light. And it is utterly silent.
The promise Creator gives us
Comes with every new day,
The gift of breath, the gift of life,
Opportunities in a vast array.How do we count our blessings,
Through the choices life can bring?
Is it through joyful lessons?
Or the fears to which we cling?Are we learning to show gratitude,
For the victories over human pain?
By honoring the feeling choices,
We grasp the will we've regained.Can we change our focus,
With no need to defend?
Acknowledging joy and sorrow,
Without judging foe or friend?Tomorrow promises the fullness
Of every human way to know:How we master each challenge.. Determines our balance ~
reflecting how we grow.
The Promise of Tomorrow ~Jamie Sams "Earth Medicine"
You are standing at exactly the place towards which you have been traveling ~ for seven years or seventy years or seven hundred years.
Your reality is within you, it is not somewhere else. But to understand the point, sometimes it takes years. You knock on many doors before you come to your own door...and then you are puzzled, because this is the house you had left and this is the house you have been searching for ~Osho
