Not every bird is meant to fly. Be yourself.
You are beautiful when you are yourself.
We don’t live in Perfect. Perfectionism is painful.
It is through accepting imperfection, accepting what is, that inner peace can finally be reached.
In accepting imperfection, we become whole — complete with the good and the bad and everything in between, with every hue of the spectrum.
A heart can only be in peace when it stops seeking perfection.
I was deeply touched by this video clip.
The baby baboon may still die — the young leopard doesn’t have milk and it was so cold. But that’s not the point.
In this amazing turn of event, they all learned one thing: LOVE.
For this moment of learning, the mother baboon gave her life. The leopard learned and experienced love, and the baby baboon experienced being loved, and probably forgiveness also.
However, at this very moment, the one who is experiencing all this, is me!
This morning I woke up, and you were still fast asleep, I felt —
the rhythm of your breath — in and out, in and out — relaxed, and sweet..
Dawned on me, then and there, a sense of peace and love like never before
And I curled up by your side, my head against your chest
I felt — your heart — beating with mine
In this moment — I truly lived and felt alive
This moment — Life awakens —-
The present… is a gift.
Whether or not we are able to open it, depends on if we have sufficiently made peace with our past.
If we can’t, then, the past dictates the future.
If we have, then the future is just a forthcoming present.
The question is: How do I feel about it?
