Express Yourself With Feeling
Each one of us seeks happiness in different ways and means.
Cultivating a concept to surge high into the sky.
Aiming to fly on the wings of good fortune.
And overcome the mundane and banal.
Soaring above what make each cry.
Fly far and high.
And be free.
Find the ways and the means that make you smile.
Capture every opportunity of joy to inspire your heart and soar high.
We are instruments of peace.
Where there is hatred, we have an opportunity to spread love;
Where there is harm, we can cultivate forgiveness;
Where there is doubt, we can advance certainty;
Where there is despair, we can instill hope;
Where there is darkness, we can uphold light;
And where there is sadness, we can foster joy.
Lets us not aspire to be supported; as to support
to be understood; as to understand,
to be loved; as to love wholeheartedly.
It is in giving that we receive,
It is in forgiving that we break free from the shackles of hatred and anger,
and it is in dying that all new beginnings are possible.
Adapted: Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi.
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.
