“Poetry to me is giving a voice to all the voiceless things and thoughts and fears and hopes and aches that go on inside you. It’s a place to let it out without worrying about censoring it or filtering it or trying to make it something it isn’t. It’s about letting out what you’re afraid to.”—Tyler Knott Gregson (via the-healing-nest)
It’s so easy to judge ourselves, or cling to ‘old ways’ or ‘the known path’ when we’re laying down new foundations, but just like the seasons of Summer, Autumn, Winter and Spring, our lives, too, are a series of seasons dissolving into each other, often without an obvious ‘announcement’ that there’s a shift going down.
What I know to be true is that there are times to be BIG! BOLD! OUT IN THE WORLD!… and times to retreat. To nest away and let the work we’ve created do its thing without rigid direction.
If we’re all go-go-go :: we miss valuable lessons on surrender and trust and flow. We come to believe if we’re not ‘doing,’ life stands still.
And on the flipside, if we’re in a constant state of retreat :: we miss out on the creative high of completion, the energy exchange that happens when our joy is shared.
Life is light and shade.
Day and night.
Doing and being.
“You. are. enough. You are ENOUGH. You are so enough you can’t even fathom it at this point. I love you. You are divinity, divinity in motion. Decide right now to be all that the entire Universe created you to be. You have nothing to prove. You are the most beautiful thing that’s ever been created. You are so infinite. I cannot even begin to articulate the love that exists inside you. You are not your past. You are not your conditioning. I know it’s been hard, but you’re not that. You matter.”—Brittany Josephina (via light-essence)
“Good health is not the absence of symptoms, it is the presence of peace. Do not confuse physical vibrance with spiritual vitality. You are not your body. Your body is simply a tool. A magnificent tool, for sure, but nothing more than that. As with all tools, your body will from time to time need repair. And one day it will wear down completely. Your soul will do neither. Not now, not ever. Listen, therefore, to the whispers of the soul, not the cries of the body.”—Neale Donald Walsh (via liquid-diamonds-flowing)
“Most of us live in a permanent state of resistance. Always trying to be somewhere else and avoiding what is currently going on right now. But we must remember that the present moment is all there is and it is our creation. So we must dive deep into it, embrace it, love it and accept all it contains. Stop trying to be somewhere else and just BE HERE.”—Connie Chapman (via liquid-diamonds-flowing)
“I want to see every single woman know her value and truth. I want women to connect with themselves and start to live conscious lives. I want to see women move from a beige existence of always wanting something that only exists in the future - skinny, happy, acceptance, love - and love their journey as it is today.”—Alice Nicholls (via liquid-diamonds-flowing)
