The secret to happiness is really learning to live in a perpetual state of love, whether or not you are in a romantic relationship. “Being love” versus “being-in-love” is not dependent on another person, or fleeting feelings and emotions. It really is a higher state of awareness, entering a secret place within your own soul where you connect to the divine and all creation. This kind of love doesn’t rely on external circumstances. It’s always there, flowing from within. It’s who you are. It’s what you were born for … to live life from the inside out and BE love.
– Daniel Nielsen
Listening to someone and really HEARING them are two totally different things…
So many of us are caught up in our own to-do lists that we often fail to separate our personal agendas from what – or who – is right in front of us. We pay lip service so we can move onto the next thing on our list… But being present is just that – a present. And it’s something that doesn’t cost a damn thing.
It’s scary. This love thing. The sweet vulnerability of extension. The naked of ‘here I am’. The tentative reaching of outstretched arms. The wide open of hope.
Soul gazing… The simple act of being present with another person in silence is a truly beautiful experience and I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to share in such a lovely exchange recently.
I find immense peace in knowing that I have the power to dictate my path in life. And you have the same power – how cool is that?!
As a society, I find we give way too much of our power away when it comes to achieving all the greatness within us and living the life we truly desire. There are expectations that we place on ourselves and those that are placed upon us by others. There is the idea of “keeping up” with the masses and proving ourselves constantly.
