Express Yourself With Feeling
May you be blessed with an eternal fountain that does not fail.
May you receive every heavenly blessing.
May you be strengthened to go beyond your limitations
And find joy and happiness in your daily existence.
Adapted from the “Community Rule”. “Blessings”.
“The Dead Sea Scrolls in English”. Geza Vermes. Penguin. 1962.
Start from a point of stillness.
No wants or needs.
No rights or wrongs.
Be guided without expectations.
Detach from the outcome.
Delight in each day and find joy and gratitude in each moment.
Master yourself, your light and dark sides.
Become your best friend, lover, father and mother.
Life is not a struggle or a battle.
Battles are just distractions to preoccupy you
into a maze of confusion and illusions.
It keeps you from true love, happiness and freedom.
Avoid anger, doubt and fear.
They are creators of death.
Doubt and fear kill all beginnings and opportunities.
It tells you – “This too difficult or it is not possible.”
Anger is toxic.
It creates pain and suffering.
You know and have all that you need.
Take a leap of faith.
Develop patience and courage.
You have one path to follow – God will nudge you along.
Be open to listen and receive without merit.
Share with others and grow each day into a better self.
Never rush life, accept what is and comes your way.
You will experience pain, grief and trauma;
Learn to do the highest good for all.
Find safety and security inside yourself;
Not in the world.
Love and be loved.
It’s your soul’s purpose.
Go beyond your limitations, character and act in spite of yourself.
You will discover exquisite beauty in everything.
Just be here and live.
Centered in trust and hope.
Waiting calmly and patiently for life to unfold in the most beautiful way.
