Excerpt From My Journal 12th April 2012

WE ARE WHO WE BELIEVE WE ARE.  All obstacles are only in the mind. There are no limitations apart from those the mind invents. If I believe in those limitations, if I truly believe that they are tangible and that they really do exist, then so they are, and so they do.

To believe in anything is to feed it, nourish it, strengthen it.  Believe in obstacles and they will bar the way.  Know, instead, that they are only fleeting inventions of the mind, and so they will be.

It is the lower mind that sets boundaries and puts limitations on our dreams.  The heart is forever free-thinking, willing to take chances, to live its dreams. 

We can change our destiny, and that of the world, by changing our thoughts and beliefs.  We can turn any situation around, because nothing is ever set in stone, even if it is written in the stars, and even if it has been prophesied for millennia.

To Waste My Heart on Fear No More

SDC10566 (4)-2

“May I have the courage, today, to live the life that I would love,

to postpone my dream no longer, but do at last what I came here for,

and waste my heart on fear no more.”

John O’Donohue

“Just feed the Spirit within you by meditation, kindness and compassion, on which the Spirit thrives. Then go out and live your life to the full, engaging in heart-led pursuits and passions.”

It was as if my heart leapt within me, as it recognised the voice of its Beloved.  

GOD is not complicated, but rather He is pure simplicity.  Just look at the trees and see the Divine there. Sit in Silence among them.  LISTEN to them.  Maybe they will speak to your heart too.

“If what I say resonates with you,

it’s merely because we are both branches of the same tree.”

William Butler Yeats
