You are Worthy
Do not undermine your worth
by comparing yourself with others.
It is because we are different
that each of us is special.
Do not set your goals
by what other people deem important.
Only you know
what is best for you.
Do not take for granted
the things closest to your heart.
Cling to them as you would your life,
for without them,
life is meaningless.
Do not let your life
slip through your fingers
by living in the past
nor for the future.
By living your life one day at a time,
you live all the days of your life.
Do not give up
when you still have something to give.
Nothing is really over
until the moment you stop trying.
It is a fragile thread
that binds us to each other.
Do not be afraid to encounter risks.
It is by taking chances
that we learn how to be brave.
Do not shut love out of your life
by saying it is impossible to find.
The quickest way to receive love
is to give love;
The fastest way to lose love
is too hold it too tightly;
the best way to keep love
is to give it wings.
Do not dismiss your dreams.
To be without dreams
is to be without hope;
To be without hope
is to be without purpose.
Do not run through life
so fast that you forget
not only where you have been,
but also where you are going.
Life is not a race,
but a journey
to be savored
each step of the way.
She was not
beautiful. nothing about her was extraordinary.
nothing about her made her stand out in a crowd. she
grew up in a family of six, the eldest, she learnt
responsibility at an early age. as she grew, stronger,
brighter, she instilled a sort of light and cheer to
whomever she met.
she was not beautiful, but she made others feel
beautiful about themselves. she meets a rebel boy who
thinks he is all man. befriending him, she teaches him
how to read, a little boost the 'man' needed to go to
they become fast friends and she fell, fast in love
with her rugged handsome student. the 'man' then finds
himself in a dilemma. he soon found himself in love
with a girl. a girl who was so beautiful, she turned
even the grouchiest men's head. her hair was a halo of
light around her, her eyes the bluest blue of the
'like an angel' he tells his tutor. 'like a beautiful
angel.' the girl swallows a lump at her throat.
she was not beautiful. she did not possess the heart
of the one he loved but she did not care. as long as
he was happy, she would be or so she tried to.
she helped him write the most beautiful letters to his
angel, all the time visioning it was she herself
receiving those very letters. and so the girl helped
him choose the right clothes, say the right words, buy
the right gifts for his angel.
his angel brought him much joy and much pain to the
girl who cried behind her smiles. but that never
stopped her from giving more than she will ever
then one day, all hell broke loose. the angel he loved
left him for another man, a richer more successful
man. the boy was stunned, was so hurt he did not speak
for days. the girl went to him. he cried on her
shoulder and she cried with him. he hurt and so did
time went by. and so the wounds heal. the boy realizes
something about his friend/tutor he never realized
before. how her laughter sounded heavenly or how her
smiles brightened up the darkest days. or how simply
beautiful, yes beautiful she looked to him!
beautiful. this plain, simple girl was beautiful to
him. and he began to fall. fall so in love with this
beautiful girl. on one day, he picked up all his
courage to see her. he walked to her house, nervous
and fidgeting, running his thoughts over and over in
his head. he was going to tell her how beautiful she
was to him. he was going to tell her how wonderfully
in love he was with her. he knocked. no one was home.
the next day he found out. the beautiful girl he fell
in love with had a brain aneurism that put her into a
coma. the doctors were grim and the family decided to
let her go.
one final time he got to see her. he held her hand. he
stroked her hair. and he cried for this beautiful
girl. he cried for he'll never see her smile or hear
her speak his name. he cried. but it was too late.
the beautiful girl was buried and the heavens broke
out in a beautiful spring shower, a cry for their
loss. she was the most beautiful girl in the world and
she had taught the rebel boy-man to love and what it
is to be loved. she was the most beautiful girl in the
look around you. aren't there a lot of plain faces?
take a good look. a real good look or you might just
miss out that beautiful person forever.
of Unconditional Love
I love as you are as you seek to find your own special
way to relate to the world, or the way you feel that
is right for you. It is important that you are the
person you want to be and not someone that I or others
think you should be.
I realize that I cannot know what is best for you
although perhaps sometimes I think I do. I've not been
where you have been, viewing life from that angle you
have, I do not know what you have chosen to learn how
you have chosen to learn it with whom or in what time
period. I have not walked life looking through your
eyes so how can I know what you need.
I allow you to be in the world without a thought or
word of judgment from me about the deeds you
undertake. I see no error in the things you say and
do, in this place where I am. I see that there are
many ways to perceive and experience the different
facets of our world. I allow without reservation the
choices you make in each moment.
I make no judgment of this for if I were to deny your
right to evolution than I would deny that right to
myself and all others. To those who would choose a way
I cannot walk, while'st I may not choose to add my
power and my energy to this way, I will never deny you
the gift of love that God has bestowed within me for
all creation, as I love you so I shall be loved, as I
sowe, so I shall reap.
I allow you the universal right of free will to walk
your own path, creating steps or to sit a while if
that is what is right for you. I will make no judgment
of these steps, whether they are large or small, nor
light or heavy or that they lead up or down, for this
is just my viewpoint. I see you do nothing and judge
it to be unworthy and yet it may be that you bring
great healing as you stand blessed by the light of
I cannot always see the higher picture of divine
order. For it is the inalienable right of all life to
choose their own evolution and with great love I
acknowledge your right to determine your future. In
humility I bow to the realization that the way I see
is best for me does not have to mean that it is also
right for you. I know that you are led as I am
following the inner excitement to know your own path.
I know that the many races, religions, customs,
nationalities and beliefs within our world bring us
great richness and allow us the benefit of teachings
of such diversedness. I know we each learn in our own
unique way in order to bring that love and wisdom back
to the whole. I know that if there were only one way
to do something, there would need to be only one
person. I will not only love you if you behave in a
way I think you should, or believe in those things I
believe in, I understand you are truly my brother and
sister though you may have been born in a different
place and believe in another God than I.
The love I feel is for all of God's world. I know that
every living thing is part of God and I feel a love
deep with every person, and all trees, and flowers,
every bird, river, ocean and for all the creatures in
all the world. I live my life in loving service being
the best me I can, becoming wiser in the perfection of
divine truth, becoming happier in the joy of
A Wedding! |
