It Is A Magical World, Be True To You

_Love your whole story even it if hasn't been the perfect fairy tale_ Melanie Moushigian KoulourisLife is meaningless only if we allow it to be.  Each of us has the power to give life meaning, to make our bodies and our words into instruments of love and hope.

  – Tom Head

When you approach each moment with fresh eyes and an open heart, you are no longer defined by your past pain or your fears for the future.  This is because you are not using that past pain or fear, as a filter to color every future experience.  Just because someone broke your heart doesn’t mean that everyone else will do so.  It doesn’t mean that you can’t trust yourself with anyone ever again.  Everything we experience is always a different experience.  We are not the same person we were prior to that experience.  The person we are currently having an experience with is not that person who hurt you.  Sometimes we just need to realize that just because we have had a bad day, doesn’t mean we have a bad life.  Just breathe, let it go.  Begin again. 

Magic is believing in yourself.  If you can do that, you can make anything happen.

  – Johann Woifgang Van Goethe

Everything in life is temporary.  Both the good things and the bad things.  Nothing lasts forever, as moment by moment life changes us.  Most of what we term a bad experience, was simply judged as being bad by us.  You got a “D” or an “F” on an assignment.  We could judge that as being a bad experience.  Or it could be judged as a good experience because it served as a wake up call, to pay attention to our studies.  Now we can graduate with honors and be successful in our chosen career.  Or it could even be the “stop” what you are doing call.  The call that says this isn’t what we want to do with our life.  That we need to stop going through the motions of making someone else happy.   If you find yourself in the wrong fairy tale, either rewrite the story or leave it.  It could be the moment that we go after our dreams.  

Life itself is your teacher, and you are in a state of constant learning.

  –   Bruce Lee

Just trust that everything is unfolding the way it is supposed to.  Don’t resist.  Surrender to what is, let go of what was, and have faith in what will be.  Great things are waiting for you around the corner.

 –  Sonia Ricotti

At a recent Hay House Event I attended I attended a seminar with Sonia Choquette.  I have been a fan of her books for years.  She is an intuitive spiritual teacher.  She told the story of how her marriage ended a couple of years ago, a total surprise to her.  She spoke about the falling apart, the recovery.  Then he came back and wanted to make it work, and then he left her again.  The second falling apart was not as bad.  She spoke about what all she learned about herself.   How much her daily practices saved her so much in recovery time.   It is funny about the good things being around the corner – you can look down the street, and you don’t see them.  It is physically impossible to know what is around a corner.  It is not until you walk around the corner that you see it.  So the good thing surprises you just as much as the devastation does, because it catches us unaware. 

She believed in dreams all right, but she also believed in doing something about them…, When Prince Charming didn’t come along, she went over to the palace and got him. 

  – Walt Disney

Even in the fairy tales you had to fight to get what you wanted.  It wasn’t all stardust and lollipops.  Bad things happened and had to be overcome.  Many times just as you thought everything was going to end up perfect, another bad thing happened.  We somehow think that life will just roll everything perfectly to our door, without any effort on our part.  Life brings us lessons to build character.  It opens many doors, but most of them we pass by because we are not conscious and paying attention.  Then we complain, that our dreams are not happening, and they must not be true.  We need to work to make our dream come true.  We need to realize that when we hit roadblocks it doesn’t mean we are on the wrong path.  We need to fight for the fairytale, because it does exist…, just remember that you are the Queen of your kingdom and only you know how to rule it.

There are far better things ahead than any we leave behind.

  –  C.S. Lewis

It means that you believe in six impossible things before breakfast.  That you dream improbable dreams and then create them.  That you are a little crazy, because all of the best people are.  That your dreams are entrenched in your soul, and the only way to release them is to make them come true. Nothing is safe and everything changes.  So reach out and touch the dragonflies and butterfly’s as you take flight.  Reach for the stars.  Dance with the fairies.  Howl at the moon.  Be a shapeshifter.  Life is a treasure hunt with a shifting map.  Find the chocolate.  Be happy, have fun, and enjoy the beauty of life.. 

Live as if you were to die tomorrow.  Learn as if you were to live forever.”

  –  Gandhi
