Being authentic is about living to one’s true self, being present as you truly are with confidence and inner conviction.
Being authentic is about acceptance of all of you and being able to acknowledge all your emotions even the difficulties in handling your emotions.
Authenticity stays in your truth often open to the guidance of the intuitive intellect.
Authenticity is about complete integrity in life and living.
When you arrive at being comfortable being yourself,and in front of others, your gifts will shine through and you will make a positive impact on this world.
All it takes is being the authentic you!
A dear friend shared this video clip with me yesterday and I immediately penned these words…
The creator flows
In the living
In the tapestry of life
Everything has a reason to be…
Every shape, every line
Speaks of life lived
Every shade, every colour
Every tone & every tint
Portrays the truths of living
Every curve depicts
The fullness of life.
In the creators touch
Art becomes artistry
In the state of flow
Where the creator
Merges with his creation
Emanating soul to the art.
Every time you find yourself
In a bit of a tussle
You need to adapt to the situation
A little bit of flexibility
Goes a long way
Where you bend but do not break.
Like the reed of grass
That bows down with grace
In the wind of changes.
Like water that flows to fit in
Until it shapes unto & settles itself
Like a lithe cat that braces itself
This ability to turn adversity
On its toes and dance with it
Is a valuable lifeskill.
This quality of adaptability
The way you adapt, adjust or modify
Says much about you as a person.
It speaks of your capacity
To be receptive to new ideas
And new ways of thinking
To step out of the box.
And perceive with fresh eyes.
To understand what is feasible
To be willing to respond than react
To the changes, in flexibility.
And the ability to be non judgmental
Speaks of your unflappable nature.
In responding with composure.
Adaptability is a necessary skill
To overcome any situation in life
To adapt is to survive.
An action that builds confidence is better than inaction which arises from fear.
At times the action is a success, at times , may be the action needs a new direction to be successful but action is better than no action.
What you see and I see
May seem different to the both of us
What you feel and I feel
May feel different to the both of us
We all see and sense things
In our own unique ways
That is how we are wired.
But when we make a move
Take a step and exchange perspectives
We see, what we missed along the way
Every view is limited in its scope
Every feeling is in the sensing
Change your perspectives
And you will see so much more
Your sensing and feeling will expand
Eventually you will make a shift
In your attitudes and alter your actions
That is what true understanding is all about.
Today the world needs to understand
More than ever before
What it is like for everyone else
What makes the world tick
What brought us to a standstill
What we need to do from now
What can each of us change from this now
To understand is half the battle won.
Every horizon once reached
It reveals another
Beckoning at a distance…
Horizon is born of hope
Of the beyond in this now.
Horizon are meant to hope
To aspire to reach beyond
In the yonder across the horizon
Where the sky converges…
Is a matter of knowing
There is always more
Of natures grace.
Such is the abundance
Of unending hope.
Recently a reader mentioned he was stymied…
By the following line in one of my previous post
‘Covet not what you cannot share.’
Let me explain..
The very act of coveting
Is yearning to possess
That which does not belong
Act of possession is not love
True love is about freedom
Every person has both
Freedom and limitations Such is the law of nature.
When man unknowingly
Or knowingly covets beyond
Nature is displaced and broken
Then energies shift
And all hell breaks loose
Every word spoken or written
Can effect someone somewhere
So important to know
And discern with care
Else all the wisdom of life
Living your truths is fine
As long as you don’t impinge others
As long as you respect life
Around you to have theirs.
Share your truths if you wish
But do not share what is not yours.
For that is an act of trangression
A violation of natures
Code of conduct!
Every moment in time
Is a gift of God.
In both the so called
Good and bad
The easy and difficult times
There is always a learning
To sense and understand
To evolve along the path.
Yet I am a lover of the mornings…
It gives me hope to look forward to
No matter the darkness of the night.
One more chance to make life better
To share and create
To heal and to help another
There is a beauty in every dawn
The way the sun rises every day
The way the darkness gives in to light
I am more me in the mornings
I enjoy the waking moments unhurried
I revel in the now in the bliss of bless
I witness the dance of light at dawn
As the sun beams its rays across
As earth awakens itself from slumber
The chirping birds fill me with joy
Its not noise to me, its a song
Of motivation and energy
To carry on through the day.
Mornings share hope for the day
Do give yourself an early start
Make mornings work for you
Bask in the grace of light.
The Synergy of the sun is upon you!
Know the mornings after a rested night
Are specially conducive to invoke
Your creativity in the things you do
So write create draw paint sing & dance.
Sleep not the mornings away.
What a waste of life’s inspiration it would be
Every morning is a gift to yourself
To unbox and release hope some more.
Life and living can be both beautiful and challenging beyond compare…
Touched by these heartfelt words I came across so much that I just had to share..
“Take me out to the street, son, I still have good legs. If I walk with you, I won’t feel old …
Invite me to your home, son, Sunday morning; to share your good table and feel accompanied …
Talk to me with love, son, don’t challenge me or shake me; we old people are like children we like to be pampered, to smile without discomfort …
Celebrate my birthdays, don’t criticize my follies; I’ll try to be brave, even if bitterness arises …
Don’t push me away from you, don’t talk to me in anger; I still have my mind clear, the memories of the past …
Come visit me at home, my son, I will not ask you for anything; just your presence and contemplate your face …
Don’t leave me sad and alone, don’t put me to bed; the doctors are wrong, the pain is in the soul … ”
Care to give of yourself
Someday you may need it too!
Age is no bar
To create a value
For age is just a number.
Experience of living, matters.
Treat life with care
For life comes a full circle.
Life can at times be lonely
Make time to be present
In the life of those who need you.
Just a bit of your time
A kind word or deed
Will make all the difference.
Your near and dear ones
Need to sense it.
Share the love.
