Honey a Moon

I don’t believe in predicting, especially about the future.
— Casey Stengel

With the pace of change continuing to accelerate, the future is not what it used to be. From one moment to the next, no one can be certain of anything. Your job, your marriage, and your relationships, none of these may be the same next year, next month, or even next week.

How does one survive this changing landscape? First, by being flexible and adaptable – ready to change course at any moment. Be prepared to “roll with the punches” and release your old attachments or current expectations.

Second, practice living one day at a time. Realize that the only thing you can really affect is how you feel this instant. By focusing on the present moment, you can continue to experience peace and joy – no matter how the outer circumstances may change.

Finally, know that the removal of old securities opens the way to new opportunities. Human consciousness is moving to ever-higher levels of awareness. How much easier the journey is when we flow with the process of change.

Wishing everyone a blessed Saturday.
May you rest, relax and rejuvenate.

Great Relationships

Great Relationships

The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, and not to twist them to fit our own image. Otherwise we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them.

Thomas Merton

Friendship

Friendship

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.

Gems

Gems

“There are some people who enter your life like gems. These are the real diamonds. They have no ulterior motives, no inferiority complex, no superiority complex, no need to prove that they are better than you, or seek to have more than you. They don’t feel entitled and aren’t needy or dependent. They are not superficial or fake. They remind you of God and they understand you, when no other person does. They don’t wear a mask with you or pretend to be perfect. They are just real with you and honestly and sincerely only want good for you. You feel you can tell them anything without worrying that they will judge you or put you down for being imperfect. They know your flaws, but love you anyway. And they are loyal. You know they’ll be there for you. They’ll always have your back. And best of all, time and distance doesn’t change this.
If you’ve met even one person in your entire life like this, you’re blessed.”
— Yasmin Mogahed

Healers

Healers

When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives means the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand.
–Henri Nouwen

Wherever You May Be

Wherever You May Be

My best times
Were when I felt close to you
But everything fell apart
The moment I strayed from you

In each smile
In every single sigh
Every minute detail
Traces of you are found there

Wherever you are I’ll find you
Cause you’re the one I turn to
Wherever you’ll be I’ll be with you
Cause you’re the one my heart turns to
I need you

To see your smile
I would pass every trial
Desperately I await
For the day when I’m by your side

Wherever you are I’ll find you
Cause you’re the one I turn to
Wherever you are I’ll follow you
Cause you’re the one I turn to
Wherever you’ll be I’ll be with you
Cause you’re the one my love is to
My love is to

Wherever you may be
I’ll follow till I see
In my heart you will be
Your love is all I need

In every single smile
Every single sigh
Every minute detail
Traces of you are there

Wherever you may be
I will search till we meet
In my heart you will be
Your love is all I need

–Amna Hashmi

True Hurt

“A person doesn’t know true hurt and suffering until they’ve felt the pain of falling in love with someone whose affections lie elsewhere.”

Purest Love

Purest Love

“Friendship is the purest love. It is the highest form of Love where nothing is asked for, no condition, where one simply enjoys giving.”

Love and Relationships

Love and Relationships

In life you’ll realize there is a purpose for everyone you meet. Some will test you, some will use you, and some will teach you. But most importantly, some will bring out the best in you.

A great relationship is about two things: First, appreciating the similarities, and second, respecting the differences.

Don’t look for someone who will solve all your problems; look for someone who will face them with you.

You don’t really need someone to complete you. You only need someone to accept you completely.

Grudges are a waste of perfect happiness. Let it go.

Nobody gets through life without losing someone they love, someone they need, or something they thought was meant to be. But it is these losses that make us stronger and eventually move us toward future opportunities.

Sometimes it is better to be kind than to be right. We do not always need an intelligent mind that speaks, just a patient heart that listens.

Don’t try to be everything to everyone. Be everything to someone.

Let us remember that we can’t force anyone to love us. We can’t beg someone to stay when they want to leave and be with someone else. This is what love is all about. However, the end of love is not the end of life. It should be the beginning of understanding that love leaves for a reason, but never leaves without a lesson.

Everyone wants a perfect ending. But over the years I’ve learned that some of the best poems don’t rhyme, and many great stories don’t have a clear beginning, middle, or end. Life is about not knowing, embracing change, and taking a moment and making the best of it without knowing what’s going to happen next.
