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

A New Note

 

A rain of leaves
comes from the sky
We call for stillness
and they answer with their songs

It was Spring
It was Summer

Now

In this Fall

They are flying
Releasing a new note
That treasures within
The secrets of Life

Did I ever heard these voices?
They are reminders to just Be
To bring presence to each moment

Before reaching the earth
After flying in the air

They are reminders of these cycles of life
That can offer in each breath
Another miracle of Love.

Never Despair

One must never despair upon losing something, whether it is an individual or an experience of joy or happiness; everything returns even more magnificently.

What has to decline, declines; what belongs to us, stays with us, for everything works according to laws that are greater than our capacity for understanding and that only seem to contradict us.

You have to live within yourself and think of all life, all of its millions of possibilities, openings, and futures, in relation to which there exists nothing that is past or has been lost.

—Rainer Maria Rilke

Under the Same Sun

IMG_4139

A dance of lights and shadows on a calm winter afternoon.

Life goes on… it keeps flowing… under the same Sun.

From the sounds of New York to the deep peace of this sacred corner of Sardinia.

In this silence the sea speaks, as well as the stones and the wind.

I hear them.

They are welcoming me back to this Ancient Land.

I look up at the sky and I am thankful.

I left my Children and Friends and now I find Them here

While, sitting on a rock, I lose and find myself in the infinite horizon.

Life continues to flow at the beat of every heartbeat

With each breath of this air of light.

Far away and yet close… under the same Sun!

Each Moment


Each moment of life is a gift given to us. 

Often we take it for granted instead than being consciously grateful for it. 

The days or years that we live are gifts and opportunities for us

to expand in the outer world, becoming Real. 

Do we really know with certainty, at the sunrise of each day,

that we will be able to see the sunset of that same day? 

A moment comes after another and yet we do not know about the next.

Almost every day we start the day thinking that we know already what it is going to be, we imagine it. 

We often live the moment thinking about the future or the past .

In this way life is just slipping away under our thoughts and mechanical actions.

It is important to find the way  for living a real life and being consciously grateful for it.

There are moments in life that come with shocks and suddenly there is a deepening in what is Real, everything like a miracle is sought under a different light and a different scale.

Shocks can create a rumbling vibration and the whole valley of life starts quaking.

If we are embracing them with consciousness, shocks come as gifts and opportunities to transform what is old and rotten, to eradicate the old roots and plaint new seeds. 

In our inner gardens there are seasons and the aim is to create a Garden of Heaven with an eternal Spring, where the Light is constantly shining and Love is nourishing the Garden.

We ask for Miracles and they are given to us constantly if we can recognize them. 

Often we can go through imagination even about the way miracles will manifest. 

We just have to be humbly open to receive what it is given to us, having Faith that what is written in the Books of Life is what we need . 

There is the Will of God, a divine plan and we can aim to fulfill that unknown plan, living life in Gratitude, Love and Light and being open to receive Miracles.

In this New Year let’s remember to be grateful for each moment that is given to us and to expand in it as if it was the last gift!

We don’t have to wait for a Big Gift ,

yet we have to discover the Greatness of Life in each moment that we live.

Life is like a river

BlakeLife is like a river

There is a continuous flow and it is wonderful when we live in that sort of abandonment and faith. No resistance, yet confident in those currents that will lead us where we should go, especially if the helm is the heart and the soul is guiding it.  Especially if, when looking at our thoughts, we are not identified with them, yet we observe them, letting go of those linked to fears, doubts, judgments and imagination.

Thoughts … We can create many thoughts and they can create many new chains or strengthen the existing ones! 

Only when we live in Presence it is like living in a house of pure crystal and those thoughts that are heavier are felt as bundles of denser energy that touch one of the glass walls and are rejected. Many thoughts come with the vibration of fear and, unless we realize that, they can permeate and completely change the state in which we live. 

Living in a house of pure crystal is a blessing, it is as if we are living in continuity in a state of Harmony and Light. The weather can still change on the outside. Strong winds can make the walls vibrate as well as major hurricanes. But over time we will use the right tools so that the crystal house always remains as a harmonic case. Porous walls will allow the flow of the giving and receiving and yet they can repel and not absorb anything that is heavier. 

Each new day comes with 24 hours that can be experienced in many ways. Each one of us is an artist who has the ability to create. Longer is the length of time in which we live in a state of harmony and bigger is the desire to stay in this state and to feel harmonic notes, pure voices singing the most melodious songs. The more we are open to receive and create this music and the more we realize that it depends on us. 

Life becomes like a stage. Each one of us plays their own notes; the same is for nature, animals … or the wind or the sun … the sea and the lands. 

Each being has a Divine Essence. We meet, reflecting each other in the smile and in the glance, in the heart and soul. There is the possibility of expanding one in the Light of the other, recognizing the intrinsic Beauty and Purity, expanding in a Light that goes beyond what is unknown and yet … Known. 

Live within yourself

“One must never despair upon losing something, whether it is an individual or an experience of joy or happiness; everything works according to laws that are greater than our capacity for understanding and that only seem to contradict us.

You have to live within yourself and think of all of life, all of its millions of possibilities, openings, and futures in relation to which there exists nothing that is past or has been lost.”

Keep surrendering

Notes from December 2011

These last weeks are intense.

Everything is happening so fast … in such a beautiful, powerful … and yet tender way.

I am grateful for this life … this special Life … where I need to keep surrendering to be molded from the sacred fingers of Love and Light.

Frictions look bigger than ever, yet I know that through them I have the possibility to grow and create stronger muscles for my Soul.

And Love ……..

LOVE is the Teacher that will guide me in each present moment.
