this helped me a lot this morning.............
made me what to take a trip of CHANCE
rise above the circumstances of your life
do you approach your life with the pain/loss you've experienced & its hardened tone of defeat?
you are here & now & can learn to truly be free
nothing & no one can take the joy of that prospect
This state of love-filled delight in possibilities and eager joy at the prospect of actualizing them is known in BUDDHISM as bright faith
Bright faith goes beyond merely claiming that possibility of oneself to immersing oneself in it. With bright faith we feel exalted as we are lifted out of our normal sense of insignificance, thrilled as we no longer feel lost & alone. The enthusiasm, energy, and courage we need in order to leave the safe path or path most frequently traveled to stop aligning ourselves with the convenient, arises with bright faith. It enables us to step out, step away, and see what we can make of our lives. With bright faith we act on our potential to transform our suffering and live in a different way.
fill each room you enter with love
in Buddhism is seen simply as a beginning,
not a beginning in which we surrender
but rather one in which we surrender
cynicism & apathy.
find someone or something that makes your faith blaze brighter
with each thought of them, it, or in the presence of passion
for your job, your family, your lover, your LIFE
find that thing that make everything worth fighting for
maybe it is something you are yet to have, a child or a purpose
but know that everything worth achieving is hard work
we get what we deserve
if you dont work hard, are not honest or take the easy way out....
that is exactly what life will throw at you
BE OPEN TO POSSIBILITY
BE OPEN TO YOUR TRUE SELF
BE OPEN TO SHARING IT WITH THE WORLD
WITHOUT EMBARRASSMENT, JUDGEMENT OR SHAME
THE ONLY ONE THAT IS JUDGING YOU IS YOU
TAKE A LOOK, AND FIND OUT WHY THAT IS
make the changes and love your life
