to the dwindling light
lingering in the sky
into the clouds
soft ethereal skin
bathing in divine radiance
hurling through space
taking us along for the ride
above our horizon it comes
to get us up
out of our slumber
to shake our bones
flex our minds
to open our eyes
and do justice
to the beauty of a brilliant new day
einstein said “imagination is everything. it is the preview of life’s coming attractions”.
what can a physicist teach us about the way we live our lives each and every day?
be mindful of what fills your mind.
whatever thought and feeling you generate is what you are creating for your life.
if you worry, then worrying is what you will get.
worries are only as real as you allow them to be.
so stop worrying, and you will see how quickly the feeling fades.
you will realize that worrying is a delusion.
in its place, a nice empty plot of land in your mind becomes available.
why not fill it up with something substantial?
why not love?
if you love, then love is what you will get.
go ahead, try it.
start with your self.
wake up early and watch how light fills up the world.
just like that, let light fill your self.
laughing out loud
holding the space
living in love
for every breath
for every one
for every moment
is a gift we get to live
in love, of love, for love
sun rises, yet again
a beautiful gift, one more day
one more time
one more chance
one more gift we receive to give love
to live life
what a blessing
what a miracle it is
that we get to live every single day
one more time
use this gift
make love, give love, be love
head in the heavens, feet firmly rooted, deep below the earth
dancing, swaying, celebrating with the wind
sequestering what is superfluous
turning it into what we need
giving out all that is good
being a habitat for life to thrive
striving, reaching out for the sun
let us learn from these patient, noble, loving beings
whenever you think your task at hand is too overwhelming, remember gandhi
he did not stop at words, concepts or theories
turning thought into action
he set his intentions on peace, freedom, rights and equality for all
through the tools of satyagraha – holding on to the truth, and ahimsa – nonviolence
he moved the hearts and minds of countless beings, opening the world’s eyes to remind us of the oneness of everything
let us remember we are all one
as such, let us be only love
have only love to give and receive
in mahatma’s words, let us be the change that we want to see in the world
the first rays of the sun caress the mountains and dance with the clouds
a new day begins
light comes in through our eyes, into our hearts and minds, warming our body and soul
igniting us to wake up and embrace the gift of a new day
no matter what came before, or what will come after
only what you have right now, within you
let it shine and light the world up with love
get on the boat and navigate
sometimes you sail
sometimes you fail
but every single time you live and learn on the trail
every moment of life is a precious gift
a chance to grow that is only there at this present moment, so live in it
just as the sky forms beautiful sculptures out of thin air, reflecting all colors, shapes and sizes, so can you be the sculptor of your own reality
work with what this world has given you
accept everything you are and everything you are not
give thanks for everything that has been given and taken away from you
create not for you, but for the joy of creating
create for everyone!
let your creations be in service to light and freedom, love and laughter
in the words of mark whitwell, stop looking, start doing
