How The Well-Being of Others Becomes My Freedom – #60

sueocallaghan.com

In 2008 Dr. Wayne Dyer published the book “Living the Wisdom of the Tao”. It contains the 81 verses of the Tao Te Ching. Wayne Dyer wrote an affirmation to each verse to bring the meaning of it to better awareness. I was fortunate to buy that book the first time I experienced Wayne Dyer live at a lecture, and I even got the book signed by the author himself. Still, it is giving me goosebumps to think back to the moment when I was standing in front of him, handing him the book, and got it signed.

What If… I Had Only One Day Left?

AZQuotes.com

It is interesting what thoughts lead to the next one and the next one, and how they take you to solutions or insights you would never expect them to tell from the first thought. Lately, I was helping someone moving into a new apartment. They moved into our closer neighborhood. While I was driving to that apartment, I was thinking of how the area had changed only within the past 5 years. Many things came to my mind that changed in general during that time, and my thoughts went 20, 30 years back. I began to think of what my life impacted, what pushed me, what directed me, what guided me, and what I myself moved (with or without the influence from outside). Even though I often think that I got stuck when emotions are surfacing which I thought I had worked out when actually, I was only successfully pushing them back.

You Are An Influencer!

We are constantly exposed to external influences. These influences determine how we influence ourselves. Because in the end, the influence of thoughts and deeds is only by yourself. Being influenced AND influencing happens unconsciously until you understand that your own thoughts do not just happen but can be controlled.

A Smile Is A Reminder

http://www.askideas.com

Lately, I had an interesting discussion with my business partner. He told me that on the way to work, he heard about a study on the radio. When you smile at someone, something begins to change in the brain cells of the other person. They are more responsive which has an effect on that person again who smiled in the first place. Also, there something changes in the brain cells which, in the end, makes both experience feelings of happiness. A smile does indeed connect, but it seems that is is a result of a switch the brain makes. And we know what an influence the brain has on our feelings.

#MomentsOfJoy

I think all of us make good use of some distractions. Why not sharing something funny, uplifting or beautiful? It can be a joke, a picture with a beautiful view, a song, a video, a story or whatever comes to your mind. It only needs to be positive with only positive words for creating positive feelings in everyone who visits.

As I Began To Love Myself…

AZQuotes.com

In my post The Opposite Of Fear Is Love I quoted Charlie Chaplin and remembered his beautiful poem. I also remembered a post I wrote about it a few years ago and decided to share it again. Charles Chaplin delivered this speech on his 70th birthday. So much wisdom and experience are lying in these words, reminding that we can lift the curtain of illusion to find the beauty, love and all the answers we have been looking for.

Doubts and Fear – Looking For What You Don’t Want

1707389-Charlie-Chaplin-Quote-You-ll-never-find-a-rainbow-if-you-re.jpg

It doesn’t matter how nice, beautiful, lovely something may appear, there are people who are having problems accepting thankfully and instead reflexively question all good things. They are more convinced that good things cannot be real but accept the not so good things as the only realistic option. Whatever good they see, they will not be fine until they find something to criticize. Yes, all that glitters is not gold. But why searching for the non-gold when I am doing good with what glitters?

Unity vs. Competition

Bildergebnis für unity is strength quotes

I actually planned to write another post about the 25 core messages God shared. But this will happen a different time since I feel like sharing something that moved me some days ago. I met a new blogger, Sheila Murrey of Take It Upon Yourself, who left a wonderful comment about her emotions and thoughts regarding the movie Bohmian Rhapsody. She expressed wonderfully what I felt too. I took a look at her blog and saw that she has written a book about self-development, healing (body and soul), and giving a look onto life from a higher perspective. I have been excited that I found her. Or actually, she found me. It is always such a joy to see how many people are dedicating their free-time or even their lives for giving something to help others to bring more light into their own lives.

Bildergebnis für ego and competition quotes

Then I thought of a post our lovely Sue of Dreamwalker’s Sanctuary. She had an inconvenient encounter here on WordPress with another blogger who couldn’t deal with the fact that Sue used an analogy that blogger used too – without both knowing of each other. Instead of being pleased to see that her way might be truthful and that there are others to support the healing in this world, she reacted offended AND offending. Why do we so easily think we are in a competition here. I don’t exclude myself, by the way. it is a reflex that must have been planted in us from childhood on by all the influences of society. Aren’t we all living for the goal of living a happy and fulfilled life? Like I want it, you want it, and she and he want it too! We cannot claim to have the copyright of sending light because we all ARE light. And the only thing that can dim that light is when the ego takes over in its distorting opinions.

There is not one best song or music style. There be those who reach more people but some like this most and some like that. So it makes no sense to compete over it. That is a reason why I don’t like those competition shows anymore. Only because the majority thinks one song or singer is best doesn’t mean it really is the best one. They simply are the ones, the majority of those who watched and voted liked it most. Don’t get me wrong, competitions can push us to work on ourselves to get better but we should always be aware that it is not a general truth. Like that, there is not only one way or one best way. There are many ways. There are even many ways for each individual regarding their states of awareness.

Bildergebnis für competition quotes

When everybody does everything their ways then it will always reach exactly those people who need exactly what they share. And if two share something similar or even the same then only because even more people might need it and that way more people can be reached.

Bildergebnis für competition quotes

Remember, we all have may have the same goals but we are all individuals to serve individuals individually. That way we all walk towards those goals in the way meant for each one of us. Isn’t that amazing?

💖Just Married💖10/10/18

IMG-20181011-WA0019.jpgLast Wednesday, my daughter married her dream man and my son-in-law his dream girl. It was only the civil part which we all did not think was much of a big deal but it turned out more touching and emotional than expected. It is a gift and a blessing – more than I can express – to see my princess and her new husband so happy. He is one of those men, who anticipates a woman every wish. It is his greatest happiness to see her happy. She is fully aware of that and does the same for him. Amazing how they read each other. A dream couple! Read more ›

From up there, you understand how everything works together in order to make it all a complete and how necessary every little thing is. Read more ›

When I think of what I want to achieve in my life and to whom I want to grow, then I ask myself what shall be written in my bio. There is only one thing actually. I want to look back and can say, I have become a happy person. What more could I reach? What could I ever miss as long as I am happy? When I am happy, I feel content and love will never leave me. Whatever comes and goes in my life can make me sad but never unhappy. When I can say, I am happy, then I have become all that I can become.

Have a happy weekend!

Open Your Arms… You Deserve The Best!

5575-Stephen-Chbosky-Quote-We-accept-the-love-we-think-we-deserve.jpg

We all experience what we allow ourselves to experience. We only see what we look at. Every day more things happen around us than we notice. And this is ok because we cannot absorb all that happens in all its varieties. That’s why we only see things from the state of consciousness we are at that moment. That is all it needs. Because everybody will find exactly what’s meant for them at that very moment. Isn’t it just amazing to think that even one single situation holds every little aspect for everyone who encounters it in its individual way? I am still mesmerized by that thought.  Read more ›

Gratitude – The Power Tool

quote-855.jpg

“What shall I be thankful for? My world is only illness, disappointment, and work. I am abused and money is always rare.” It doesn’t always sound bad when asking some people what they are thankful for. Sometimes it even appears many people are actually defending themselves against finding something in life they could be thankful for. It would destroy their negative picture of the world. And this is exactly the origin of their black perspective. Concentrating on the injustice in the world, the own frustration, fear, suffering, or addictions doesn’t let anything else appear. Although it is there it is not recognized. Read more ›

The Power of Silliness!

quote-silly-is-you-in-a-natural-state-and-serious-is-something-you-have-to-do-until-you-can-mike-myers-82-77-77.jpg

It is clear to me that being serious is important to stay focused on your target and to not losing concentration most of all in difficult situations. But it has also become clear to me for many years that this can be exhausting and draw all your energy from you when it lasts too long. Most of all when it is not about temporary situations but for a period of difficult times.

ludwigwittgenstein1.jpg

Giving room to your silliness doesn’t mean that you don’t take circumstances serious. It means that you are opening an outlet to let go of the pressure some situations can cause It means to take a break from the “task” or challenge for some moments. When you keep your humor and see the irony in situations you stop being the problem. When you are laughing you relax the muscles in your whole body and what is important: When you are laughing you are also breathing deeply and fill your whole system with oxygen and therefore energy! It is like an energy shot.silliness.jpgMy boss and I can really tell stories about hectic and stressful times since we experience them for quite a while. But we never lost our silliness and making fun of the situation. We are laughing at ourselves and really can be so silly. Most of all now that I am in charge for so much more since my colleague won’t be coming back to work anymore and we don’t have something new yet, it is a task at times regarding stepping into fields I have never been before and learning quickly how to deal with them. But when you still can laugh about it, you are like a ventilation system. The pressure and stress get blown out and fresh air clears the cells.

untitled11.jpg

It is also one of the tactics of not running the risk of becoming burned out or depressive through some happenings in life or some temporary situations. Keeping your humor means keeping your head above it. I don’t mean to ignore how things are but to see them from a distance in order to have the power to deal with them. Don’t forget that you are not what you are dealing with. You are not your problems. You are what makes you feel well. Because feeling well is your natural state of being. That’s why all things that make you feel good are empowering and all things that make you feel bad are exhausting.

ybuib.gif

We have to deal with difficult situations throughout our lives. Some can lead us to our limits. But they are there to make us develop because every task asks for something more or something new we need to activate within us. It is not something we need to invent. No, it is already there but was asleep until the moment arrived to wake it up. All we need for this lifetime is already within us. Therefore we need to connect with the being within that body through raising our energy frequency for making them match. The fastest way and the most effective tool is feeling good.

wnd_ac27a6323661db34fddc51e6886c5527.jpg

Being silly is not silly at all! It refreshes your body, clears your mind, detaches from who you are not, and that way keeps you healthy and empowers you to face your daily tasks!

In Love and Light

Life isn’t about being someone we think we should be only because it sounds good because others want us to be, or in order to fit into a certain image of society. A faked personality only confuses the people around you and yourself over time more and more because the real identity gets lost.

Irony: Being Negative Can Be So Much Fun!

20170121_093037_001.jpg

It was a foggy day when I wrote this post. No ray of sun and really cold. All frozen for days. Opening windows in the morning and letting some fresh air in had become a challenge for someone who is cold so quickly. I cannot stand the cold. I also cannot stand when it is dark in the morning. Then thinking of another day below that high fog without any ray of sun, … my thoughts seemed to enjoy going to all things that bothered me like the busy time ahead in that week and all those things that recently made my abdomen cramp, and much more.

This week, Keith reminded me of a post I wrote about 2 years ago. In that post, I shared a bit of my silliness and craziness, and it made me laugh again. I thought I could actually share it again with you here:

Isn’t it the happiest feeling to just be yourself? When you feel good and just smile all over your whole face without a reason? When you laugh out loud because you feel like it? When your zest for life makes you shining like the sun? When you crank the music in your car and the bass is vibrating in your stomach – open window, open rooftop? And perhaps you are even singing to the songs? Read more ›

I May Be Sad But Not Unhappy!

happiness-and-sadness-quote

Even the happiest people are sad at times. Things go wrong, disappointments, and losses happen. If we have an open heart and feel love then we also feel pain. But that is not a bad thing. Feeling sad means that we are able to feel. If someone tells me to never be sad about something then I think that person either lies or ignores the own feelings which is only a suppression of things they may be scared to look at. Never accepting to be sad (here I am at this unhealthy way of positive thinking) will start growing inside like cancer and eating that person up. Read more ›

Happy Sunday to all of you! I am having my first relaxed Sunday for ages. In addition to it we are having a gorgeous summer day today. I am enjoying myself in sitting on my patio and writing, writing, writing. Soon I will take a bath in the sun, having an ice cream, and simply enjoy life. I just want to share some photos of my garden I took in the early afternoon. not everything is in full bloom already but close to. I just cannot wait to show you some excerpts.  Read more ›

Happiness Fair in Radolfzell, Germany

Hi friends, I wasn’t around today because in the morning I took off to Radolfzell. I was one of the speakers at the so-called Happiness Fair. A friend of mine, who did the setup and cover for my German I’m Free and who helped me with the translation of the English edition, had a booth at that fair. After I had given my lecture I helped her out at the booth when she gave her lecture.  Read more ›

So Excited!!!

When have you been excited the last time? Did something turn out the way you wished for? Did you meet lovely people? Did you succeed in something you worked for hard? Did things you were waiting and longing for finally come true? How did it feel? Weren’t you filled with adrenaline? Weren’t you filled with a feeling of immense power? There was happiness, gratitude, contentment in abundance, right? You saw that in the end things are well. You felt what happiness is about, what joy is about, perhaps even what life is about. But most of all you felt so very deep in the most positive way. And yes, that is what life is about.

Focus On The Outcome!

There was barely a post which I wrote so highly inspired. On one side there is last week’s award post about the Room 101 Award and on the other side a lecture of the amazing Gregg Braden. Both happened on the same day and goes exactly into the same direction. It is meant to be that I write about it.

The rules of the Room 101 Award say that the nominee has to mention 5 things they want to banish into Room 101. In honor of the founder of any award I try to stick to the rules and started to ponder about those 5 things. I noticed that I couldn’t get into the flow. I did not feel inspired and felt like standing at a dead-end. But then I realized that the reason was that I tried to find something within me that I already had banished from my life successfully: Focusing on the negative! Read more ›

Don’t Excuse Your Purpose – Live It!

Do you know how healthy you are? No, that is not turning out as a post about healthy food. I am the wrong one for that. That’s Colleen’s realm.What I mean is, do you know how long you will be healthy, strong, able to approach your plans, visions, dreams? Do you know how much time you are given in this particular lifetime?

postponing-quotes-4.jpg

There is this touching story about that man who caresses the beautiful silky nightgown of his wife which he just found in a drawer. She kept it untouched for special occasions to surprise him. In the end, she never wore them and he never saw it on her … We don’t know what happens in one year, heck, we don’t even know what happens in the next moment. That doesn’t mean that we need to panic and start hectically to accomplish everything at once. It shall simply say that we need to stop postponing things.

Yes, sometimes there are different priorities. But what I am talking about here are the things we could do but don’t. It is more convenient to find an excuse instead of making the effort to get something started. It can be out of a laziness. Very often it is out of a lack of self-esteem – the fear of failing, the fear of being questioned, the fear of being criticized. We use excuses like I am not smart enough, I am too old, I don’t have the time, I never did it before.

sw_evolution_volley.jpg

So what? If we never do something we never did before, then we never do anything! What is progress? It is evolving into something that wasn’t there before. We are here to evolve. That is the meaning of life. During life our bodies are developing, our minds are developing, our personalities are developing, and so shall develop the life we live!

We all have skills, talents, abilities, dreams. The combination of it all is what waits for you to be brought into the world or be developed within you. You are 70 and always dreamed of learning Mandarin? Do it!!! Don’t say, I am too old. What do you have to lose?

Kids-Wall-Decal-May-We-Give-Our-Children-Roots-to-Grow-and-Wings-to-Fly-Children.jpg

One of those excuses which make the least sense to me is to resign of something out of respectfulness of others. For example parents who cannot let go of their children: “I cannot travel the world for one year because it would break my mother’s heart when I am gone for so long.” “I cannot accept that job because I had to move to another city which would hurt my parents.” I can get mad when I hear something like that. No parents must make their children feel guilty when for living their own life. From day one on parents need to be aware of the fact that they raise their children in order to prepare them for life. A child has to be supported in finding its own way in this world. Of course, it is different when parents are sick and in need of help.

It is your life. Don’t wait until you look back and realize that you don’t need excuses anymore because the opportunities have already gone. It is the worst thing I can imagine I could do to myself. Because in the end there is no one to blame but I myself.

edison-on-failure.jpg

Don’t be afraid of leaving your comfort zone and breaking out of your old life. You can never fail. I repeat: YOU CAN NEVER FAIL!!! Because whatever you do today brings you further than you were yesterday. Every insight is a step on the stairs of your personal evolution.

Wear those silky nightgowns and enjoy them. Make others smile with who you are. Enjoy your life in filling it with who you are and in expanding that person you are. You don’t know what the next day brings. Use the time you are given. Make this education, join this class, do something that you always wanted to do and take first steps towards it. Even if you don’t know how to accomplish it. There are people to ask, there are books to read, there is the internet. Rome wasn’t built in a day. There is no deadline. You only need to start and move forward step by step. Some steps are happening faster and easier, some need more time.

abrahamlincoln137180.jpg

Entering this new world within your life will open up new options too. You will find even more fulfillment than you had ever imagined. All the new things you encounter leave something that inspires and shows you more things to explore. You will discover much more about yourself and you will feel as if life had just begun.

You have come into this world to live your purpose – in order to live a fulfilled life and in order to serve others with it at the same time. This life is a giving and receiving. Life is for living! We only live when we feel ourselves. We feel ourselves the best when we dilate our inner world into the outer world.

Fill your life with meaning and start today! 

In Love and Light

Your Well-Being Matters!

I inspired myself to this post when I had to set priorities in my currently busy life. I learned that many years ago when I found myself surrounded by too many activities. It happened step by step unnoticed until it got too much. It is related a lot to the lesson of saying No:

You love what you do. You really love it. You are proud of what you are achieving ever day. You are versatile, doing this and that. There are so many things you want to do in your life and you are not only talking about it, you are doing it. Things work out, projects succeed and grow. That is wonderful but all of a sudden the many projects can get too much and I don’t even threw life in yet. When everything grows it can be overwhelming because you are still only one person. You still have only 24 hours a day. But you also still love all you started. Read more ›

Feeling Powerful – The Art of Facing Life

When do we have the most power? When are we the most productive? When do we feel the most motivation to hang in, to start something new, to finally get projects done? It is always when we feel good.

No doubts, there are times in life when things are coming to an end, when plans don’t work out the way we hoped for, when all our effort seems not coming to fruition. Times when we are confused and when things around us fall apart or simply change in ways we have no control over….. times of change! Read more ›

The Magic of Christmas 💖

I guess you all agree that Christmas is the time of year when we are more receptive for sharing love and compassion, for lending hands and being more tolerant than at any other time of the year. Although  the hectic of finding our way through overcrowded stores and getting the last Christmas gifts just in time can be very stressful. But let’s leave that out for a moment and just concentrate on the meaning of Christmas. Read more ›

Are You still Comfortable Or Already Living?

Yes, I borrowed that title from a commercial slogan of a famous furniture designer…. 😁

Last week I was guest on Kimberly Rinaldi’s live radio show Lessons in Joyful Living. It was a fantastic interview and I enjoyed it from the first until the last minute. It was my 3rd live radio interview. Was I still nervous? Yes, I was; throughout the day! But some time before the show started this nervousness changed into an excitement and anticipation.

A Two Weeks Review Of Gratitude And Blessings

I heard sceptic voices regarding meeting bloggers in person because of a possible disappointment. My own experience was nothing like that at all. I did not have any expectations about the wonderful people I was going to meet. They already captured my heart for months and I dare to say that we did know each other by heart. That is why it was not necessary that any ice needed to be broken. There simply was no ice. We all embraced each other with arms wide open! We laughed and joked about all the things we were posting about. It truly were meetings between old friends! I am already thinking about my next trip. I will make it an effort that at least once in my life I want to embrace the people I call my friends, brothers, and sisters! Read more ›

Gratitude – The Power of Awareness

Imagine sitting on the top of a mountain and looking down into the valley. High up above, you see everything from a distance, the bigger picture. You see how streets are leading to each other, how small creeks are leading into a river, how the river flows into a lake. From up there you understand how everything works together in order to make it all a complete and how necessary every little thing is. Read more ›

Beautiful Memories!

Above the clouds so high

So much time to think back

Of beautiful times with lovely people

Of places I discovered new

Of friendship and heart warming hugs

Of smiles and sunshine

Of vows and gratitude

Of inspiration and love

Is that melancholy I feel?

Yes, sure, it’s there!

It tells me, it was good

And worthwhile to be repeated

Just a quick Hello from Louisiana!

Friends, Union, Beaches, and More

When I came back from my vacation last week I mentioned that I am already preparing for my next trip… an even bigger one. Now the time has come!

8573771-115976967_27-v1

When you are reading this I am already on my way or actually up in the air heading towards the US.

OK, before I enjoyed my 10 hour flight I had to go trough the usual procedure…. which is always 10 steps tougher than any other flight (perhaps hot the Middle East).6719404-115976967_27-v1

Anyway, if you want to fly to the States you have to ignore any thoughts or feelings of privacy. Got used to it… Back to the reason of my trip:

My lovely and humorous friend, Linda of Nutsrok, invited me in the beginning of this year to visit her. We had some great chats and knew that we need to meet one day.  So this day has come pretty soon as it seemed. I am looking forward not only to meeting her but also her lovely family she is always writing about. I cannot thank Linda enough for her generous offer which I accepted with pleasure.

No, that is not her family but you will  understand the context right away.dallas-altstars-moegen-das-29428_big

Linda and I will drive to Dallas and guess who we are going to meet there? Our lovable and soulful Indian friend Kruti of 10 Evening Flowers. Kruti and I were talking about how beautiful it would be meeting for about 10 months. She moved to Texas just 1 month ago. Things fell into place and we take the chance!  Btw.  Kruti is a published author. She writes amazing short stories! Her writings in general are deep and insightful.

7829127-115976967_27-v1

After leaving at Linda’s I fly over to ……………. yes…………. you guessed it: To California! How could I be in the States and not visit my favorite spot in the whole wide world? (Psst, Rich, they have Pizza Hut here, shall I break something?)

I will meet three of my blogging buddies there too: ………………………………  drum rolls……………………… Marissa of Glorious Results of a Misspent Youth ………………………………  drum rolls……………………… Carolina of Yesterday After……………………….. drum rolls………………………. Kevin of The Screenplay of Life Chronicles. All of you who know the four of us might be able to imagine what that means: I think you will hear us laughing and chatting wherever you live!

Again I ask you for your understanding. This time I might not even be available for days. I am depending on free WiFi and will be on the go all the time. I might not be posting spontaneously. What you will find is scheduled. If ever I get the chance I will reply for sure. I also apologize in advance for probably not reading any posts.

7958954-115976967_27-v1

Take care all of you and don’t forget about me. I will share all my wonderful impressions, meetings, and experiences with you when I am back in 2 weeks.

20150930_184431

During a chat with a friend here on  WordPress I got reminded of one of my biggest inspirations regarding what I see as my purpose: The Saint Francis prayer

Only when reading it, something opens up within me. Like the dawning sun, there is this love rising up. This love that has only one purpose: to spread love towards everybody’s heart in order to make them rise their inner sun too.

6a0128760776fb970c017ee5b50fea970d-800wi

We are in a time of change. People run from dark places and try to find the light somewhere else. What we realize more and more during these days is that only when we start acting from our heart – first towards ourselves and then towards everybody around us – we can end pain, end war, and suffering. When we act from this place of love inside of us we feel the deep connection to everyone. Because love is the energy that created us, that we are, and that connects one another over the globe – regardless of any religious, cultural, racial, political backgrounds. We are all love and we want to feel loved. Isn’t it the most wonderful feeling to realize that someone feels deeply loved because you made that person feel loved? Because you showed that person that they are important, that they are precious, that they are beautiful, that they are perfect the way the are, just because they are as they are? Isn’t that the only technique to fill your heart with true and enduring love?

quote-Mother-Teresa-spread-love-everywhere-you-go-let-no-88434

I remember back in 1984. I was 14, sitting in my classroom (bored by the subject) and pondering about life. I was thinking about what would give my life meaning, fulfill me? And there was this thought coming up: “Make others feel good.” I don’t know where that came from. But it was there out of the blue. In the same moment, I got tears in my eyes because I felt a warmth in my chest expanding and rising up. A feeling that must have been of deep love. I remember it so clearly because it was a moment of awakening. From that moment on I tried to look deeper into my friends and other people. I wanted to understand them and through this spend encouragement and comfort.

Unfortunately, I lost that over the following years when I lost myself. But it always rose up between and for at least 6 years it is a companion wherever I walk.

It is my greatest joy to see others happy and it is my greatest fulfillment when I could make someone smile. Reading the Saint Francis Prayer again reminded me of this wonderful tool we have with us all the time. The tool that ceases sadness and suffering, that ceases anger and hatred, that ceases darkness and brings light. The tool of our origin, that divine spark within – LOVE

unzip-and-find-your-true-self-george-jeffries

When we let love speak, we truly lose anything that is not love. We are dying to the old identification with us and are born into the eternal awareness of love and to love itself. Love is life  – eternal life.

Our recently passed Wayne Dyer introduced me to the Saint Francis Prayer. He mentioned it in some of his books. When I joined my first lecture with him, he played a song of Cecilia. She is also called The Healing Voice. I bought one of her CDs and there was also the Saint Francis Prayer recorded. The song was exclusively written for her. It is very beautiful and I want to share this song with you too.

I won’t analyze too much about the prayer itself but ask you to simply open up to those lines and see what happens within you  when you let the words touch your heart.

Becoming-an-Instrument-of-Peace-1536x720

The Prayer of Saint Francis

Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
Where there is sadness, joy.

O divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
To be consoled as to console,
To be understood as to understand,
To be loved as to love;
For it is in giving that we receive;
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
It is in dying to self that we are born to eternal life.

Liberation

(I am sorry, for some reason I cannot put paragraphs into the poem. Tried it for an hour and eventually gave up!)

So dark and so lonely

My heart was for years

Ruled by my self-doubts

Controlled by my fears

For far too long

I thought there must be

A change in the world

or a savior for me

But nothing did happen

No one understood

No one did care

If only I could…

Being who I am

Or who I wanna be

Not caring if others

Did understand me

All of a sudden

I thought: Why not I?

No one can judge me

Cause no one is I

I started to rise

Started living my dream

Not afraid anymore

That someone could be mean

I respect and I love me –

The person I am

Enabled me greatly

To love everyone

The smile that I’m wearing

Is no fake anymore

It shines from my heart

As the light of my core

Today I am content

No more fears, I am free

With me the world changed

And the savior has been me!

For Zee: This is the poem I was talking about 🙂
