A Smile

9-April-2017

I was lying in bed just thinking of past loves and what they had in common. The following quote formed in my mind.
“Of all the sexiest curves that you have, the most beautiful is your smile.”
There is something truely wonderful meaningful spiritual about a smile.
A great thought to start the day.

Loving an introvert

7-May-2016

A lovely article about how to love an introvert. Could an extrovert be bothered? 🙂

I’m not a fan of watching the news. It’s all negative and depressing but the sad part of this is I miss out on news that, while sad, I would still want to know.
Rest in Peace, Victoria Wood. You are my hero.

Passion

28-April-2016

A friend asked me what my Passion was. After no time at all this is what I came up with. I really didn’t have to think. Something that allows me to touch my emotions.

1. YOU
2. LOVE
3. PEACE. Stopping and smelling the roses. Being in the moment. Feeling the now enter my being. My soul. Sssssh.
4. MUSIC. A well crafted song that brings tears of sadness or a feeling of power. That someone could create something so strong and beautiful as to reach into my heart.
5. COMEDY. A well written joke that I had no idea where the punch line
came from that leaves me no choice to laugh aloud. The proverbial pie
in the face routine.

The Key to Inner Peace

4-February-2016

So I was thinking about all the things I’ve written so far. The blog posts, the quotes, the poems, and trying to understand how to come to Inner Peace. I have come to the realisation for me that it’s not something you can just obtain overnight. It’s not like a TV.  You don’t just live without Inner Peace and then the next day, you miraculously have it. It’s a journey. I understand that now. The longer you take the journey to Inner Peace, the closer you become. You level up so to speak, but I also think you never actually achieve it as you feel it. From the outside it may look like you have achieved Inner Peace to others but within, it’s still the journey. You’re still learning and growing and will continue to learn and grow through time. Then there’s being mindful. Living in the present and using your senses helps guide you ever closer. To stop and step back into mindfulness. To watch yourself as in the third person, as it were. In everything you do, use your senses to feel, smell, touch, taste and hear life unfold before you. Notice them and live or rather feel in the present. You still have to plan that next holiday or remember your lost loved ones so it’s not just staying there. Remember to pay that bill when you get home, write it down so you don’t forget and then come back to the present. Unconditional Love is another point that may always feel as though it’s beyond reach but to reach closer, I think to love and to accept are key. To love them and accept them for who they are and not whom you want them to be. Also, I think one of the simplest and most important steps. Breathe.

I think that’s about it. Relaxing and being on my own in nature helps. That wouldn’t help the extroverts but it helps me. I’m sure structured meditation does too and perhaps that’s something of a goal to aspire to, but for me, relaxing and being in nature, and open to everything is meditation in itself. I shall go away and think about this some more.

Oh. One more thing. Bold is Beautiful. Worth remembering.

Why is it that all these prophets, religious and spiritual people write such long and dull books when all they’re trying to say can be summed up into one word. LOVE.

The Path to Peace

27-January-2016

So on 21st Jan I was thinking about peace and realising that there are levels. I then start thinking about mind, body and spirit in my post about 3 prongs. Then I come across this. So very similar to my 3 prongs but he’s talking about the path 🙂

“There is no path to Happiness. Happiness is the path. There is no path to Love. Love is the path. There is no path to Peace. Peace is the path.”

~ Dan Millman

The path is right there, within you…become happiness, love and peace with each step. Interesting.
I am at peace (?), yet why do I crave more? Perhaps “There is no spoon”.

Innocence

26-January-2016

How can you tell when an introvert likes you?
He's looking at your shoes instead of his own.


I think there's something sweet and innocent in this joke. The uncomfortableness of what is to come, perhaps. The quiet beauty in 2 people slowly getting to know each other.

Unconditional Love is the outer expression of Inner Peace.
