“Everything that kindness touches relaxes into its true nature.” ~Pamela Wilson
Kindness is a powerful gift that lets each of us relax into who we really are when we are touched by it. Offer kindness whenever you can to others and to yourself. You might be surprised at just how much power it has to create positive change!
“It is through creating, not possessing, that life is revealed.” ~Vida D. Scudder
We (as a society) prioritize shopping and owning things over spending time creating. I think maybe we have those priorities backwards!
“Set your life on fire. Seek those who fan your flame.” ~Mevlana Rumi
Life fully lived is a life on fire with purpose and enthusiasm. If you’re still trying to live safely in blandness (and aren’t we all in some way?), what would it look like to set your life on fire? Who would help fan your flames to keep you alive and glowing bright?
“The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven.” ~John Milton
The mind is a powerful thing, and too often allow its running programs to take over and create our reality unchecked. How much better it is to learn to work with our minds to create a reality that works well for us.
What are you doing with your mind?
“Maybe the most difficult stranger to welcome is the one who lives inside us.” ~Mirabai Starr, from God of Love: A Guide to the Heart of Judaism, Christianity and Islam
How do you deal with those parts of yourself that you don’t like? It’s only through welcoming them in that we have the opportunity to transform them.
How could you better welcome the stranger inside of you?
