Set Your Life On Fire

I have survived because the FIRE inside me burned brighter than the fire around me.

The best thing you could do is MASTER the chaos in you.  You are not thrown into the fire.  YOU ARE THE FIRE.

 – Mama Indigo

The smallest spark ignites the fire of passion that lives deep within all of our souls.  When that passion bursts out, then anything is suddenly possible.  That passion says that you will not give up.  That you might get knocked down, but you will get back up.  That you might fail, but you will keep trying until you succeed.  It is in the trying, failing and trying again that we learn just what we are made up of.  It strips away the facades that we hide behind.  It exposes the bones of what we are made up of.  The fires don’t burn the true you, only the parts that are not you.

I know there is hope for mankind because there is a fire inside my chest.  I feel the pain of others and I care.  I care.

 – Anita Krizzan

The Cherokees teach that we came from the stars.  Science has proven that our bodies contain stardust.  Like the stars we burn with an inner fire.  Our eyes, the windows of our soul, shine with that inner fire.  It is that inner focus that drives us forward.  That inner fire is like a forge, in that it will burn away all of the things that don’t belong, leaving the pure beauty of our souls core.  Focus is like a bellows, which supplies air to the fire so that it breathes.  That hot air rises to push you up out of the ashes.  It is in that place inside your heart, deep within the soul where joy burns away the pain.  Life isn’t ever what you thought it was.  It is in fact, all about what it is possible to become.  What you are truly capable of being.

What you want to ignite in others must first burn inside yourself.

If you have ever heated your home with a wood fire, then you know the importance of banking the coals at night.  When you do that, then in the morning it is easy to get the fire going quickly.  We need to bank our inner fires when you are being hard pressed.  When we are going through the valley of death and darkness.  If we keep the inner core burning brightly it doesn’t matter what happens to the outside of us.  The burning embers of our dreams will burst into flames.  We will rise up again.  We shall escape the darkness.  We shall arise, lighting the way out of the darkness with a brightly burning, all consuming passion to change ourselves and thereby change the world.

Walk tall, kick ass . . . and never forget you come from a long line of truth seekers, lovers and warriors.

 – Hunter S. Thompson

What matters most is our own self confidence.  Our own beliefs.  Our own self love and self trust.  Because when the bridges are burning, sometimes that only way out is through.  When we have to walk down that road of fire, we are only going to be able to do it if we believe we can.  Sometimes in order to rise higher, we need to burn the boats containing plans B – Z, and realize that plan A is the only option.   You have to be all in.  You have to surround yourself with those who will not be afraid of the changes you are going through, because they are transforming themselves.  People who will believe in your dreams and will fan the flames of your fire.  The chain reaction of one heart on fire lighting another, and another until there is light for all.

You have to decide what your highest priorities are and have the courage – pleasantly, smilingly, non-apologetically – to say “no” to other things.  And the way to do that is by having a bigger “Yes” burning inside.

 – Stephen Covey

Seek that path that demands more from you than you currently know how to give.  Motivation comes from that fire within us, an awakened soul.  Be fearless in seeking your transformation.  You have the capacity to create, to overcome, to endure, to transform, to love, and to be greater than all of your hopes, desires, dreams and inspirations.
