“The greatest wealth is a poverty of desires.” ~Seneca~
I recently wrote the Universe Knowing in truth a note to myself about the parallel and oppositions flowing through my mind choices made lessons learned loses and gains
the presence of truth the beauty of love the grace of sensing all the world within me
looking at my experiences materially and spiritually counting the blessings in the loss of most material things opening the heart to the spirit
feeling an emptiness of desires of wanting to do this or that
wondering if I am out of alignment? perspective off in some way? Is my integrity intact as I did stop walking my talk In the sense of doing that and this?
Just didn’t have the need, want or desire for it
Feeling just a strange knowing Of peace, Of joy And Being.
Embracing this… Seemed odd And somehow not right
Now realizing in truth I am right on due course To true Self Living a freedom Alien to me before.
Busyness not needed My mind seems wanders Maybe I ought to be doing Then I stop and ask myself a simple question
Is this my mind or my heart/soul speaking?
The words vanish most of the time Unless the heart/soul speaking The nudge to get moving start kicking in
I just smile with the brilliance of the signs I am receiving for confirmation to my letter Eight simple words placed before my eyes “The greatest wealth is a poverty of desires.” From the wisdom of Seneca
That emptiness is filling with love, joy, and compassion As my world lifts up and beyond my mind’s desires and needs. Knowing my needs and desires are already met.
It is worth repeating… “The greatest wealth is a poverty of desires.” ~Seneca~
Embrace your emptiness and let your heart fill it with Love and the universe will deliver just what you need. ~jh
Hearts have been broken open, and tears pour out. Love burns in each candle and continues to grow regardless of the inhumane actions of a few. We can blame the guns, yet are they pulling the trigger? One human got enraged within himself and took it out on other innocent, joyous, loving humans.
Ask yourself: How does this reflect on me? How can I be a better person? When and why have I criticized another person? Have I carried a grudge against a person? We may not have a gun, but words can do damage too. Or, words and actions can heal and mend the hearts and souls now.
Yesterday morning, I woke with this deep sense of self-hatred, yet I knew that the depth of my hate was just a fraction of the amount of self-love, which expands unlimited. Perhaps I sensed the world’s pain and gained the perspective of the world’s consciousness in the craziness we find ourselves in.
Moments after this madness began, love still burned strong as one of the victims texted I love you to his mom. In moments of crisis, love is at the center, within each hero, whether they lost their life in Orlando or in any of the innumerable shooting tragedies in recent times.
I won’t call the people who lost their lives, victims. To me, they are heroes. I focus on the courage, beauty, kindness and the love they were. Each had a story of giving, loving and adding their brilliance to this world. Their candles still burn within the love we all have for them.
Open hearts break and expand with each breakthrough… with more love to heal the wounds as we continue to evolve with the madness of the times. Bless the heroes, their families, and friends. Bless the people around the world for uniting as the true oneness we are… called humanity.
Compassion rises up like the sun, and each of us has a choice in how to reflect and express ourselves in these grievous times. For me, I will hug, share a smile and laugh more. Each of the heroes that we lost in Pulse did this daily, and I plan to continue this legacy of their stories.
Pulse is a club with the mission to honor the heartbeat we all share, a place where a person can be themselves and share some fun with friends and family. And it will continue as our hearts continue to beat in unison and unity.
We have the opportunity again to gain some insights and reflections of the values we share and listen to the enemies within us all. Hatred will continue; it is human nature, though there is potential in this if you have a passion for loving manyfold. It is the focusing of the energy that we need to shift.
Stop for a moment, and think what we want this world of humanity and these generations to be remembered as the worst time of violence and separation or a time when humanity got their act together and started loving each other through mutual acceptance. Stop building walls that diminish the space for hearing the words of truth. Open your heart, and expand your love. Love is endless and joyful brilliance. The true sweetness of this human experience we crave to know, receive and have is Love.
“We chase the melodies that seem to find us
Until they’re finished songs and start to play
When senseless acts of tragedy remind us
That nothing here is promised, not one day.
This show is proof that history remembers
We lived through times when hate and fear seemed stronger;
We rise and fall and light from dying embers, remembrances that hope and love last longer
And love is love is love is love is love is love is love is love cannot be killed or swept aside.”
When entering the stillness the quietude, releasing the mind, the ideas and I fade into the nothingness of being I enter the void of darkness of creativity visas of possibilities.
Come to the place in time and energy where magic lingers, waiting waiting dancing as someone come to claim the innate magic within
the music of the soul the beat of the heart the truth dwelling leisurely yet pounding with grief until we get that clue
Laughter is one way to reclaim the obvious understanding the trust distilled in each cell. disconnect the monkeys. Another is the music outside that creates that opening inside inside the deep, the dark to light the way
to that lingering magic waiting, twiddling thumbs or tapping toes… waiting for the knock on your head connected to your heart leading to your realizing
You are that magic always available always lingering always persistency present like that thing called Love. Simply be aware of the loving magic you truly always be…
Enjoy your laughter as you’re dancing to your music. It is the most beautiful YOU. ~jh #LiveYourMagic
Interesting when one comes to think of the simple lessons learned by the others around us being family, friends or even enemies but of all, it is those silent ones the animals who we make family also the closest of friends the cats, dogs or even birds lizards, rats or maybe its a ferret
Just a simple look we tend to get the gist of what they are saying maybe the way they just lay tells us the moods and intentions playful, hunting or simply sleepy hungry and even like us craving a little attention from touching.
animals bring magic to us daily a smile, a laugh, and inspiration… through the silence of their beingness I have learned to relax and I will be fine stressing out just isn’t in their nature so we human can learn a lot from those two or four footed friends. perhaps it’s time to realize that. ~jh
Words reach out like a hug making the cold distance get closer and warmer the heart connection stronger the reason for being more worthy
simple sayings of gratitude, of appreciation, Of support, Of love!
makes the tough times not so bad helps with the seeming depth of darkness somehow not so dark that ray of light at the end begins to shine within
the internet brings people together in ways, that boggle the mind yet we once had pen pals we wrote to to bring the big world a little closer
sharing stories and simply being real with that stranger out in the horizon realizing we are mirrors shining as a brilliant candle or star in the darkness of living life
makes us breathe a little easier knowing someone else understand or is listening making the bad times worth living as we grow closer to our potential because those words feel like a hug making the cold world much warmer. ~jh
