Bye Bye Irma

IMG_0437

 

We often tend to take for granted all that we have in our lives. Our health, our home, our family, food in our plates, roof over our heads. And then we always try to get more and more and more. Somehow what we have is never enough.
But sometimes something comes and takes it all. In a split of a second it’s all gone. A hurricane and there’s no more home, no more food, no more water. Our life as we know it is gone, for good. And then how we wish we had it back, all back, just as it was. Nothing else really, that was actually enough.
The simple things are actually the big things. They are the most important. And if we have them now, we owe it to everyone else who don’t, to really appreciate it, and to be grateful for this.
It is all so precious, it is all so fragile.
Blessings to everyone who has been affected by Irma and all and every natural disasters, human disasters, disease, pains and all suffering.

Free will

IMG_8492

Free will and life

Not everything is as we want it to be, or as we try and force it to be, right? We are all young and happy thinking we are invincible and that life belongs to us.
Then along the way, no matter what we do or don’t do, we get hurt, we get sick, we get old. We experience pain and we experience loss.
No matter how hard we try we can’t avoid this and we can’t control Life.
We are not always free to choose all that happens to us.
So where is our free will then?
Our free will is what we do with what we have been given.
It is how we respond to Life.
It is what we do with our perception and our thoughts.
As I always say, we can always cry or laugh no matter what is happening around us.
We can change and choose our thoughts.
We can be miserable or we can be happy.
And that’s true freedom.
That’s our free will.

WORD POWER

img_1841

The power of the Word.

What does one word mean

when all is meaningless

when words like thoughts are just ideas floating on clouds

made of thin air

with no beginning and no ending.

What does one word mean

when we are all day bombarded by random texts

by thousand words we catch here and there

that we read, we hear and then we forget

What does one word mean

when we spend our days listening to the ones in our heads

all messed up, pulling us here and there

backwards, forwards,

we are running behind them trying to catch them

looking for answers

searching for their meaning in our lives

What does one word mean

when it is lost among all these?

And what would it mean if it were to stand alone,

in its glory

in its power

in its simplicity

It is everything, it is all that is, it is all we are looking for.

LOVE

That is not who I am

hat-head

I am a woman but being a woman is not who I am

I have a job, but my job isn’t who I am

I have a family, but my family isn’t who I am

I have a body, but my body isn’t who I am

I have a country, but my country isn’t who I am

I have beliefs, but my beliefs aren’t who I am

I have thoughts and opinions, but they are not who I am

I have a personality , but this isn’t who I am

I own things, but my things are not who I am

Who am I then?

I AM ME being aware that I am not all that.

I have forgotten

DSCF1471

I have forgotten

what it feels like to have a busy mind,

I have forgotten

what it feels like to never have space in between thoughts,

I have forgotten

how I couldn’t look at things without judging them,

I have forgotten

what it feels like to hear words in my head without pause,

I have forgotten

how I used to be still without any stillness,

I have forgotten

the fear of thinking I could be crazy,

I have forgotten

how I used to lose myself in the anxiety of the future,

I have forgotten

how I used to lose myself in the memories of the past,

I have forgotten

how I just didn’t know how to live the present.

Now I remember,

And I look around me to all these faces who are still asleep

and oh, I wish I could wake them up

show them the beauty of life

teach them how to stop their minds

and make them feel the peace of Now.

I have forgotten

but I will not forget

to help everyone remember

who they really are.

The beauty of each day

peace

There is beauty in each day.

No matter how hard and difficult our lives get, there are always some pieces of beauty sparsely hidden in each day.

We need to to look for them and try to find at least one a day, because it is in these moments that we remember what life is worth living for.

We can get overwhelmed, tired, scared but in a moment we can find beauty and love and that can be enough to forget everything else.

That can be enough to bring us peace.

That can be enough to make us smile.

What did you find beautiful today?

The meaning of life

IMG_5066

What is the meaning of life?

Is it the incessant quest for a future dream object?

The daily building of a future security?

A working path towards retirement?

The search for the happy ending of ever after?

Or is it more noticing what is already there,

what we already have and don’t really need

what our life is full of but that we hardly see

the joy and the love of the present moment

the life and the laughs of the daily instants

the peace and the beauty of nature events

the happiness that is

right

here

right

now.
