What is true strength? Forgiveness. A topic that has been penetrating my thoughts for the past 2 years. I always believed that true strength came from walking away and letting go. Sometimes it still does. What's harder than that? Forgiving someone. How much better has my life been since I learned this? Exponentially.. 

Just watch. I dare you to look up at the night sky tonight, and every night. In fact, do it as often as you can. Time stops in these moments and you are allowed a beautiful glimpse of eternity. None of us really know where we are or what is going on here. We are all floating in space and anything is possible. I have found that love is a state of mind. Fall deeply in love with yourself. This is the surest way to fall in love with someone else, and with the rest of existence..

If you pay close enough attention your mind is expanding with each passing moment. So is the universe. So follow your bliss. Your happiness, true happiness, matters more than anything. So figure out what it is that makes your soul flow and spend your life dwelling in it. 

I hesitate to use the word "bad" because I feel that most everything in the world has both bad and good elements. That being said, negative things may have happened to you but that doesn't mean the world is negative. Let the flowers, crystals, music, trees, dragonflies, stars, memories and dreams remind you of the magic that inherits the earth. There are no mistakes here. Everything is as it should be. Your reality will transform once you realize this. Trust the universe. The waves are headed in one direction only to be pushed back by the shore. Be like the waves and trust the process without judgement, without resistance. Nature is embedded with an infinite amount of wisdom..
