Seek the Truth

Standard

It is important, to tell the truth to yourself first before speaking it to someone else. Often it is easier to see something in someone else and not realize that you are that as well. So, first look at yourself and speak the truth to yourself before you speak it to another. When you speak the truth to yourself, it cuts like a knife; it hurts because you are seeing the truth of yourself, and sometimes it is not so pretty. You may even deny it. Everyone has the lowest opinion of themselves, and that is what they want to hide. Once you open that door of speaking truth with yourself, you discover the true ecstasy of being free, and you can see more clearly. Then when you look at someone else and speak the truth with them, it doesn’t include any attachments because you have cleared it in yourself first. That is where trust is, that place you have cleared yourself; and when you trust yourself, you can see another person clearly.

Hope

Standard

Hope is when you’re hanging from a thread bore line feeling pain yet you’re still fighting

Hope for a patient is the reason to get up every morning

Hope is your inside voice telling you not to give up

Hope is your brave knight fighting away the darkness

Hope is the belief that you can change your life

Hope is the medicine that puts a smile on your face

Hope is the feeling that there’s still a brighter tomorrow waiting your way.

Hope is the force that to keep you walking, searching, dreaming and longing

Still I Rise

Standard

This is one of my favorite poem by the great Maya Angelou

Still I Rise

You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may trod me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I’ll rise.

Does my sassiness upset you?
Why are you beset with gloom?
‘Cause I walk like I’ve got oil wells
Pumping in my living room.

Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I’ll rise.

Did you want to see me broken?
Bowed head and lowered eyes?
Shoulders falling down like teardrops.
Weakened by my soulful cries.

Does my haughtiness offend you?
Don’t you take it awful hard
‘Cause I laugh like I’ve got gold mines
Diggin’ in my own back yard.

You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I’ll rise.

Does my sexiness upset you?
Does it come as a surprise
That I dance like I’ve got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs?

Out of the huts of history’s shame
I rise
Up from a past that’s rooted in pain
I rise
I’m a black ocean, leaping and wide,
Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.
Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
I rise
Into a daybreak that’s wondrously clear
I rise
Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
I am the dream and the hope of the slave.
I rise
I rise
I rise.

The most wasted day of all is that on which we have not laughed.- Sebastien Chamfort

Laughing is the cheapest remedy and natural medicine as it helps you heal. Laughing brings colorful rainbows to the grey areas in your life.

According to science, you live one more day if you laugh fifteen minutes. Why you ask? Laughing can help you to reduce stress, blood pressure, improve cardiac health, memory and learning. It also helps to ease depression and anxiety. Have you heard about Norman Cousins? If you didn’t then you should. Norman suffered from Ankylosing Spondylitis which a chronic disease of axial skeleton. His disease was considered to be intractable however he fought it by training himself to laugh and taking huge amount of Vitamin C. And as a result, Norman managed to drive this disease into remission.

We only have today to live, so why not laugh and enjoy it? Why not open ourselves up to a good laugh and let it push our pain or sorrow out? Now that we are once again choosing how we feel, we have the power to opt for joy.

Can you imagine how the world would be if everyone is laughing every day? So why don’t you start with yourself today and do something that can make you laugh? It can be anything from watching a funny movie or stand-up comedy, playing with your friends or children, reading a comic book or finding a creative way to be silly.

Night

Standard

night

I wait all day to see the lights of the city go out at night

As I’m always seduced by the long legs of the night,

Waiting for the calmness and the refreshing breeze

Where the moon become my companion for the night

As I look at the black veil of night,

I take comfort in looking at the moon and stars

Shinning so bright

At this moment, my fears, doubts, and tears are washed away tremendously

And everything appears to be smiling again

I can’t help myself but to ponder

That we need the darkness of the night

To see the light of the day
