happy spring! aside from the chilly temperature, its exciting to begin a new season and announce a new series on the blog called happy thoughts. i want to share quotes, pictures, poems, stories, etc that i hope will bestow some midweek motivation. my journey of self discovery is so early but already enlightening. much of the focus is on a buddhist philosophy of healing the soul. i dont plan on shaving my head or becoming a monk, but i really am embracing its ideas of awakening and acceptance. this week my therapist presented a quote he felt appropriate from the contemporary indian master bapuji. it reads…
my beloved child,
break your heart no longer.
each time you judge yourself you break your own heart.
you stop feeding on the love which is the wellspring of your vitality.
the time has come, your time
to live, to celebrate and to see the goodness that you are…
let no one, no thing, no idea or ideal obstruct you
if one comes, even in the name of ‘truth,’ forgive it for its unknowing
do not fight.
and breathe- into the goodness that you are.
it left me speechless. i believe its called a breakthrough. thank you to richard. may this help you all see your own goodness too.
