Sharing a Rumi poem today. I’m always in a perfect mood after reading beautiful poetry. I’m feeling blessed and grateful for all the wonderful blessings in my life. Sending love and healing prayers to all precious souls.
“Let go of your worries
and be completely clear-hearted,
like the face of a mirror
that contains no images.
If you want a clear mirror,
and see the shameless truth,
which the mirror reflects.
If metal can be polished
to a mirror-like finish,
what polishing might the mirror
of the heart require?
Between the mirror and the heart
is this single difference:
the heart conceals secrets,
while the mirror does not.”
Never stop believing in yourself! Always trust in the universe and the higher power to guide you towards what is in your best interest. The right things will manifest if you are open and just believe.
Wishes for a good day!
Even if poetry is not your thing, you probably know by heart the words of Alfred Lord Tennyson:
This year I finally have an answer for the saying below:
‘Tis better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all.
Yes! It is better to have loved- even though the loss can be so final, so gut wrenching, so much pain, your heart breaks, your soul aches but thinking the opposite, not experiencing that emotion is so much worse.
This is why so many poets, philosophers, song writers write about the angst of love and loss, stories that turn into tragedies. With all the losses I’ve personally sustained this year. My own perspective has completely shifted as well.
So my wish is for everyone to experience a once in a lifetime, amazing love connection.
Adoption is the purest form of unconditional love. Most connections are formed either through a biological relationship or a contract such as marriage. However, when you form a heart connection with another soul through adoption, it is the most purest form of soulful love. On this upcoming Mothers Day weekend, I want to pay tribute to all those amazing souls who have made the choice to adopt.
Whether you adopt a son, daughter, brother or sister. You are blessed. Always celebrate this beautiful relationship.
I love my friends neither with my heart nor with my mind.
Just in case my heart might stop, mind can forget.
I love them with my soul.
Soul never stops or forgets.
Some relationships connect us through blood, some relationship connect us through contracts but the most precious connections are those that we form in our hearts. Heart connections are the most valuable relationships because we choose them. Cherish all your heart connections because they are the most powerful of all soul connections.
“The voice of life in me cannot reach the ear of life in you ; but let us talk that we may not feel lonely.”
When your eyes are tired
the world is tired also.
When your vision has gone
no part of the world can find you.
Time to go into the dark
where the night has eyes
to recognize its own.
There you can be sure
you are not beyond love.
The dark will be your womb
The night will give you a horizon
further than you can see.
You must learn one thing.
The world was made to be free in.
Give up all the other worlds
except the one to which you belong.
Sometimes it takes darkness and the sweet
confinement of your aloneness
anything or anyone
that does not bring you alive
is too small for you.
