“Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.”
Both these quotes by John F. Kennedy should give us pause. What direction are we headed in? It appears to be “BACKWARD,” to a horrible time in our country’s history, or “FORWARD,” on a new dangerous path.
Where will this river take us? It’s up to each of us.
“Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.”
~ Louisa May Alcott
Our aspirations and dreams of what can be give us the energy and fight to get up in the morning. They are part of what drives us. Never give up on your dreams because they’re who you are and why you’re here.
It’s there inside of you just waiting and wanting to come out. Sometimes you have to dig deep because ego has been guarding the entrance to the Spirit. Once you find it, bring the seed into the light and allow it to grow strong. Ego will become smaller and smaller with each growing day, and soon peace and happiness will fill and light the way.
The creative is the place where no one else has ever been.
You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition.
You can’t get there by bus, only by hard work and risk and by not quite knowing what you’re doing. What you’ll discover will be wonderful. What you’ll discover will be yourself.”
~ Alan Alda
I have a plank with these words of wisdom on it. I refer to it whenever I’m just not sure what I’m supposed to be doing with my life. And, when I read these words this is what I think about:
Don’t wait to start your life; tomorrow may never come. Don’t fear the obstacles that might get in your way.
Life will not wait for you to get started. You have to make that choice, so seize the day!
Look at your life as one big adventure just waiting for the excitement to begin. But like any big ticket ride there will be ups and there will be downs, but baby, that’s just part of the fun called “LIFE.” And another thing, don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t, ‘cause you certainly can!
