You are enough

When you realize that you always have the answers within yourself, 
you can stop searching outside of yourself.

1 Thing I learnt this weekend

The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you. 
Don't go back to sleep. 
You must ask for what you really want. 
Don't go back to sleep. 

People are going back and forth 
across the doorsill 
where the two worlds touch. 
The door is round and open. 
Don't go back to sleep.
- Rumi

Monday Moment

Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.

“No, life cannot be understood flat on a page. 
It has to be lived; a person has to get out of his head, 
has to fall in love, has to memorize poems, has to jump off bridges into rivers, 
has to stand in an empty desert and whisper sonnets under his breath... 
We get one story, you and I, and one story alone.”

I wish I could show you ...
when you are lonely or in darkness.. 
the astonishing Light of Your Own Being

That moment when you realise that you are changing... that life will never be the same.  That you are growing up and that nothing can stop or slow down the momentum of this inevitable change.  You ride the wave.  There is no waiting for something to happen.  You are the happening.  I've been going through the transition for a while and now it's acceleration to something more is evident in all that's happening.  All the pieces are coming together and everything is slowly making sense...

What have I learnt?  I have learnt that no matter what you do or don't do, that life happens.  It unfolds and it comes together so quickly.  You take responsibility for your life and in making or not making decisions you are responsible for your destiny.  You are the only person who can change your life.  You are on a path.  Yes.  But you have chosen that.  And if you don't like it, change it again.  As time passes, life unfolds according to the choices made.

There is no limit to how much we can create in our lives, when we are feeling inspired and passionate.

1 thing I learnt this month

Jealousy kills love, possessiveness kills love. Be nonjealous if you want great love to happen; if you want your life to grow multidimensionally it needs freedom. 

You need freedom and the person you love needs freedom. In freedom only there. If you really love a person you will allow all the space possible to the person; you will never encroach on his or her freedom. That is the only indication of your love, not those stupid love letters that you write! Any fool can do that -- a computer can do far better than you do! 

A computer can write love letters, there is no problem in it. Your love can be proved only by one thing: how much freedom you are giving to the other -- even the freedom to love others; that is the only indication of your love. 

 And the miracle is, the more we allow each other to love as many people as possible, you will find the person infinitely loving towards you, because love is not money, love is not a commodity. It is an inner energy which grows by sharing, which dies by not sharing.
