Accept Things And Move On

Mervyn Brady from “Smelling The Roses”

“One thing that I learned that day was that

you have to accept things and move on.

There were certain things that had to remain unexplained and unanswered.

I knew I was too young to understand what happened.

I also knew one day I would grow into the answer.

In great moments of sadness something enters into your blood

and changes you.

I didn’t know it then, but looking back, those were the moments when God,

the divine sculptor, shaped my inner world.”

A New Beginning

 

 

It’s a new cycle

A new beginning

 

Grounded

Aligned

Grateful

 

The sun is shining

Today

In my heart

In my soul

 

I leaf through the pages

Days, hours, minutes…

Seconds

 

I can scrape the sky

Now

Flying beyond the horizon

Expanding

In what has been

In What Is

 

It is a New Year

A new beginning

 

I write these words today. I expand in them… in Faith. They are mirroring my state. My prayer is that this blessed state in which I am now will be maintained… through new joy, through new suffering.

Yes, because this is Life.

It must be lived in each moment, in presence, without illusions of what it will be.

Its impermanence must be accepted.

It must be lived in Love, for ourselves and for others. Yes, because Love conquers the dark, conquers suffering, conquers the lack of something or someone. Afterwards Love is reborn strengthened, reinforced.

To love… beyond judgments and prejudices… beyond the ego.

To have Faith… beyond emotions and thoughts… beyond their own finite limits.

To Live…

Aligned in all the worlds that we contain and that contain us.

Perfect in our imperfection.

A new beginning

The Temple Of Love

The temple of love is not love itself;

True love is the treasure,

Not the walls about it.

Do not admire the decoration,

But involve yourself in the essence,

The perfume that invades and touches you-

The beginning and the end.

Discovered, this replace all else,

The apparent and the unknowable.

Time and space are slaves to this presence.

– Rumi

As once the winged energy of delight

As once the winged energy of delight
carried you over childhood’s dark abysses,
now beyond your own life build the great
arch of unimagined bridges.

Wonders happen if we can succeed
in passing through the harshest danger;
but only in a bright and purely granted
achievement can we realize the wonder.

To work with Things in the indescribable
relationship is not too hard for us;
the pattern grows more intricate and subtle,
and being swept along is not enough.

Take your practiced powers and stretch them out
until they span the chasm between two
contradictions… For the god
wants to know himself in you.

Rainer Maria Rilke

… where the Nothing and Everything are merging

It is in entering the state of God 
that we experience Completeness and Freedom. 
In that Light there is Faith that ‘Thy Will Be Done’. 
In the thought of God, 
in God, there is Harmony, 
There is alignment in between all Worlds, there is Union. 
It is a state where the Nothing and Everything are merging.
Annalisa

Finish Every Day

Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.

Tomorrow is a new day;
begin it well and serenely
and with too high a spirit
to be cumbered with your old nonsense.

This day is all that is good and fair.
It is too dear, with its hopes and invitations,
to waste a moment on the yesterdays.

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
