Hey God, will you be my Valentine?

Good morning, my dear Valentines! Don’t be surprised. I mean it. We all are born only to be our grandest selves. And what can make us grandest if not love? Love is the only thing every body needs to feel good. Love is the only thing every mind needs to heal itself. And love is the only thing every Soul needs to give…needs to demonstrate…needs to spread it generously.

Our mind or should I say our mindsets tell us that there are other things important than love and joy. Our mind stops us from expressing love in order to avoid vulnerability.

We should choose to be wiser by allowing love to flow ceaselessly. You may love anyone or anything. Just be genuine. Faking will hurt you more than anyone else. You may love humans, animals, nature,…just be genuine.

If you are passionate about something, you are in love. If your heart is overflowing with kindness and compassion, you are in love. If you are being an unassuming friend, you are sharing love. If you are affectionate, you are expressing the softest shade of love. There are many shades of love and we can love each other in any way. But, we must love fully. Celebrate this Valentine’s day with anyone or anything you genuinely love.

Hey God, will you be my Valentine?

Melody in relationship

To see a world in a grain of sand and a heaven in a wild flower, hold infinity in the palm of your hand and eternity in an hour…- William Blake.

Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder! A piece of art becomes valuable with admiration. A poem is endowed with meaning by the reader. A song is blessed with melody by a sensitive ear.

Life offers back to us what we pour in. We can choose to live fully in each moment. We will experience the meaning we assign to everything.

What do you choose to experience this weekend? Is it love, or beauty, or creativity, or melody? And can we be a little innovative? I desire to pour love in music and melody in relationship. How about you? Have a wonderful weekend! God loves the play!

Arriving again…

We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started 
And know the place for the first time.
– T. S. Eliot.

Why would we arrive where we started? ‘Cause there is nowhere to go. Exploring, experiencing, exhibiting and expressing is the goal. Doing is the medium of exploring, experiencing and knowing. Doing is also the medium for demonstrating our being and knowing….knowing of self.

And why would it seem like we know the place for the first time? ‘Cause after the process of exploring and experiencing we will be transformed…possessing a new perspective altogether! How could the place seen with a new perspective seem familiar ?

So, the purpose of our existence is to arrive at this truth that our perspective creates our perception. Can we start looking at life with this changed perspective from today? God desired that we discovered a new vision each day.
