Maybe you’re too serious about it,
Life isn’t meant to be so serious, it’s meant to be light and fun…
Stop judging yourself and
let go into acceptance
I was deliberating these thoughts on the train ride from Chicago to Detroit onto Toronto. A trip spontaneously spurred by my dad.
Planes, trains and automobiles have become my second home, and meditation is a form of ease on them.
When a 5 hour train ride turns into 8 hours,
There must be a purpose, I think to myself.
I have to apply that even when life is not what I desire,
when I feel like giving up on myself,
giving up on my dreams,
letting go of the passion,
I believe in myself.
I believe that there is a purpose to everything, in seeking out what is positive, one will always grow from it.
I believe that what happens easily, is meant to be.
I believe to give up control, in order to let in the flow.
The flow of least resistance.
I believe that love is the only truth, all else is an illusion.
I believe that thoughts, actions, words and deeds create our reality.
Individually and collectively.
I believe that we are only human, doing the best we can with what we know.
I believe that life is beautiful, in order to see we have to remember.
I believe that a certificate does not give one merit, character or wisdom.
I believe that the spirit thrives in laughter, letting go and having fun.
The pride parade happened to be the same weekend while we were in Toronto. Walking through the crowd, I was elated to see different cultures coming together to celebrate this symbol of tolerance.
I believe that judgement is a barrier to love. Who is anybody to judge?
I believe that the ego is annihilated in remembering that we are one.
I believe that intolerance and judgement come from perspective. Every person thinks they are right in their perception.
I believe there is no such thing as mistakes, only learning and growth of self.
I believe that tolerance and acceptance are the antithesis to self-righteousness and judgement. If we were raised in a world that promoted these tenets collectively,
we would see more love.
I believe each heart holds the secret of inner truth. Cultivate the heart.
I believe that love, empathy and compassion are practices of the highest. Accepting self and others through faults, leads to success.
I believe letting go of expectations, will allow one to be in the present.
I had time to myself while on this trip. Staying at the Park Hyatt, I indulged at Stillwater Spa.
I received a manicure, pedicure and facial, the service was impeccable.
The sauna and steams imparted healing on my mind, body and heart.
A tranquil, peaceful place Stillwater helped me to uncover my inner beauty by polishing the outer.
I was absolutely thankful for this luxurious treatment.
I believe in pampering, and feeling like a queen
I believe that a healthy mind, body and spirit creates happiness and ease.
I believe that life is a contradiction, in the duality of reality lies humor
I believe that every person is intrinsically gifted, sometimes waiting for their inner light to be uncovered.
I believe that in facing one’s shadow, one can see the light.
My father and I were sitting outside at Creme Brasserie, eating a lovely, light and delicious meal.
We were having a life questioning discussion.
I asked him
“Dad, if there was one thing you could impart, what would it be?”
“I used to play the game, and the game was top priority. Over time I have realized that family is the most important, however and whatever that family may be.” He responded
“Could that apply to the family of humanity?” I asked
I believe that children are our future, teach them to love each other.
I believe in taking care of the earth for future generations, it’s the only earth we have.
Every person believes differently, in that there is a beauty.
I believe in you, and me, to create, love, be happy and free.
Life is done unto as you believe.
