Weekly Photo Challenge: Scale

Perspective. It’s what makes us see things differently. At times, I see myself above things, feeling bigger and more powerful. But at times, too, I see myself as small as a speck of sand, powerless and insignificant.

It’s funny how I attach myself to these different perspectives as if they were my truth when in fact both are part of the bigger picture of life. It is how things are when we make ourselves object that must fit perfectly into the picture.

But when we choose to be the one who observes, we see right where to put ourselves. And when circumstances put us either above or below, any emotions that come with these different levels have nothing to do with who we are. Because we know full well that everything is just a matter of perspective.

Seeing Hearts 9: The Glory of Love

Stray paint on leg of chair

With each passing of the day, seeing these heart-shaped objects became normal. Sometimes, I see them as perfectly shaped, other times, imperfectly. This lead me to these impressions:

Love is a mission

We all define heart as love. To the deeply spiritual, the heart is our core. I define this daily manifestation based on those two assumptions: that I am reminded to love every day; and that love is my core.
Loving everybody is not as easy as one, two, three. It means I have to love both the lovable and the unlovable, my likers and my dislikers, and so on. It’s not easy, yes, but like the rain that does not choose where to fall, whether to the good or bad, I also have to do my part. I have to extend love to whoever comes my way.
But before I could extend that love, I need to have it in myself first. I need to love myself unconditionally, without judgment, with total acceptance of who I am, who I’m not, what I am, and what I’m not.
I also need others’ guidance in order to love fully. I don’t have everything there is to know about love. Aside from constant prayer to be guided in this love journey, I also read Og Mandino’s book, “The Greatest Secret in the World.” The Scroll Marked II in it is very timely. It speaks of the love which should be practiced for five consecutive weeks. I’ll be posting that love part soon. It’s a good way to train the subconscious the practice of love.

Morsel of cake

Love is what you are

I got this line from Deepak Chopra’s Youtube video, that love is what we are, it is our core, our being. I felt it to be true. We are born out lof love, out of God’s breathe of love. I felt so blessed to be reminded of this truth. And to this truth, I hold on.
 

Loving the unlovable

The slanted, deformed, or the ones that turned upside down heart-shaped objects represent the people who look unlovable by their ways and personalities. But digging deep, we would discover what makes them what they are. Love could do that much easily. The main point is, they too, deserve to be loved.
Conclusion
Our mission is to love because we are love, and that we have to love even the unlovable.
That’s all for now. May you have a great day!

I’m Setting Myself Up for Failure

Success Inspirers World

I'm setting myself up for failure
To venture into the unknown is like jumping into a precipice. As human beings, we are hardwired to stay within the pack and be safe. Yet creative minds have the tendency to roam into uncharted territories. It’s their way of letting out the Beast within that seeks expression.
 
Each of us, at some point, give in to the wishes of this Beast. Whether prepared or not, we start the pursuit to please this longing. For there is no right time to follow the call, we just have to say yes when the bell rings. This is where I am at this very moment: on the takeoff for my first ever book. (Yehey!)
 
But outcome must be facedrealistically. While the way to a successful endeavor is to embrace positivity that everything will turn out as expected, there is no denying the fact that failure is the other…

Seeing Hearts 4

The photo above is a treasure. You need to be observant enough to see it. It’s so tiny it only measures a third of an inch. It laid before my path and I almost stepped on it.

My idea notebook

 

It’s amazing how you see things differently when your awareness expands. I use this notebook every morning but never get to remember the hearts in its cover. Truly, the universe will open up things for us when we’re open to it.

Seeing Hearts 1

After quitting my stressful, corporate job I keep seeing heart-shaped objects. At first, I thought it was mere coincidence. Until I realized it has become a natural occurrence that takes place daily.
Believing that there might be some hidden message on this, I searched the internet for any of it. Unfortunately, I haven’t found any facts or studies about this one.
There were indeed some people who had the same experience and were searching for the meaning of this too. In one post with this topic, one comment caught my attention. It said a person who is having this experience is being told by the universe that he is on the right path. That whatever decisions that person made were right and in line with his purpose.

This sounded great to me as I was still validating within myself whether I did the right decision or not. I was then a bit pacified hoping beyond hopes that that was the right message this phenomenon is telling me. And that I’m on the right track.
Rick Ruggles also had the same experience. Since then he created a website, foundhearts.com, where he placed all his found hearts in one place. And I was inspired to do the same. Thus, I am placing my found hearts here. Let’s see how far will it take me to finally realize the deeper meaning of this. (If there’s any.)
These two photos were what I found yesterday. I’ll be posting tomorrow today’s catch. This is gonna be an exciting journey. Stay tuned!

5 Elixirs of Creativity That Fire Up Your Creative Genius

5 elixirs of creativity that fire up your creative genius

At times the writing muse would evade us, just like it does today. But I don’t want to be defeated. Creativity should always be present, whether an inspiration strikes or not. This is such a beautiful world, that when our eyes fail to see what we want to see, we could borrow others’ insights on things we want to have a grasp upon.

So now, let me talk about the elixirs of creativity that others saw, used, and shared gratefully. Here are five of them:

1. Read

In my blog writing, I rely heavily on the Daily Post’s daily prompts. The prompt for today is elixir. I like the word. It sometimes is a subject in movies. You know, those stories wherein the villain would go back to the past and do everything it takes just to get that potion that promises him eternal life. But I could not write…

A Thought on Acceptance

on acceptance

Seasons come, seasons go. Just like the events in our lives. There are some which we dread to come, and some which we hope would arrive but did not.

We may feel cold on a summer day or feel hot on winter days. But things happen according to their purpose. At times too, things which are not designed to happen, happen because of our own doing. Or, should I say, due to our incompetence and inconsistencies in our judgment. Whether we like it or not, we got to accept it for we could not fight that which already took place.

It might not be that easy to move on, but we are left with only the choice of calling it a day and do better the next time the same opportunity comes (if there is any).
