“Acceptance sets you Free”
Accept and Let go, Accept and Float
Accept the injuries, Accept the Contradictions
Accept the Tears, Accept the Smiles
Accept the Ache, Accept the Heart
Accept the openness and let go of Certainty
Move into Void, Fly towards Sky
Accept Oneself, Accept Others
Let go of the Anger, Let go of the Hate
Breed the Compassion, Practice Love
Understanding is the first step to acceptance, and only with acceptance can there be recovery.
From Skies to the Earth
From Eyes to the Cheeks
From Ocean to the Tap
A Falling Drop fills the Gap
When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive—to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love—then make that day count!
There is nowhere morning does not go.
I asked the Dalai Lama what it was like to wake up with joy, and he shared his experience each morning. ‘I think if you are an intensely religious believer, as soon as you wake up, you thank God for another day. And you try to do God’s will. For a non-theist like myself, but who is a Buddhist, as soon as I wake up, I remember Buddha’s teaching: the importance of kindness and compassion, wishing something good for others, or at least to reduce their suffering. Then I remember that everything is interrelated, the teaching of interdependence. So then I set my intention for the day: that this day should be meaningful. Meaningful means, if possible, serve and help others. If not possible, then at least not to harm others. That’s a meaningful day. Dalai Lama XIV, The Book of Joy: Lasting Happiness in a Changing World
Pain, you just have to ride it out, hope it goes away on its own, hope the wound that caused it heals. There are no solutions, no easy answers, you just breath deep and wait for it to subside.
Most of the time pain can be managed but sometimes the pain gets you where you least expect it. Hits way below the belt and doesn’t let up. Pain, you just have to fight through, because the truth is you can’t outrun it and life always makes more.
Because that’s how you stay alive. When it hurt so much you can’t breathe, That’s how you survive. By remembering that, one day, somehow, impossibly, you won’t feel this way.
It won’t hurt this much.
And perhaps of all the Efforts we make
The ones getting reward
Becomes our Identity
We know what we are, but not what we may be.
Sometimes you get hit. You Fall
You can’t get up. You fall Further
May be that’s what you have to go through to finally Live
Sometimes a part of yourself has to die, may be even the part you love most before you can realize what makes you whole and clearly see it’s larger than us.
If you are in the dark get through it by seeing the invisible so that you can do the Impossible.
Be responsible and accountable for yourself.
Just Fail Forward
It will make sense, when you see the Light at the break of Dawn
Cacophony that becomes Melody
Pain that becomes Love
Restlessness that becomes Patience
Nights that become Days
Sunsets that become Sunrises
Order that becomes Chaos
And at the end
Life that becomes Death
