Re: Affirmation and Quotes

"For a New Beginning~~
In out-of-the-way places of the heart,
Where your thoughts never think to wander,
This beginning has been quietly forming,
Waiting until you were ready to emerge.

For a long time it has watched your desire,
Feeling the emptiness growing inside you,
Noticing how you willed yourself on,
Still unable to leave what you had outgrown.

It watched you play with the seduction of safety
And the gray promises that sameness whispered,
Heard the waves of turmoil rise and relent,
Wondered would you always live like this.

Then the delight, when your courage kindled,
And out you stepped onto new ground,
Your eyes young again with energy and dream,
A path of plenitude opening before you.

Though your destination is not yet clear
You can trust the promise of this opening;
Unfurl yourself into the grace of beginning
That is at one with your life's desire.

Awaken your spirit to adventure;
Hold nothing back, learn to find ease in risk;
Soon you will be home in a new rhythm,
For your soul senses the world that awaits you."
~John O'Donohue

Re: Affirmation and Quotes

"I don't hold animals superior or even equal to humans. The whole case for behaving decently to animals rests on the fact that we are the superior species. We are the species uniquely capable of imagination, rationality, and moral choice - and that is precisely why we are under an obligation to recognize and respect the rights of animals." ~Brigid Brophy

Re: Affirmation and Quotes

"Not all transformations are gentle. Many times we are forced into change not because we see light at the end of the tunnel, but because we feel the heat.

Before your breakthrough, the garden must be weeded and trimmed. Release the people, places, things, and habits blocking you from personal freedom.

Tend to your garden & rebirth will immediately follow." ~Madame Omi Kongo

Re: Affirmation and Quotes

The Cycles of Self

1. Self-Awareness: I become aware of the challenge/lesson which lies before me.

2. Self-Exploration: I examine all possible paths emanating from my current position along both polarities of expression. (good/bad, right/wrong, positive/negative, love/fear)

3. Self-Discovery: I relate all current possibilities with knowledge gained prior to my arrival into the current challenge/lesson and discern what I believe to be the best choice.

4. Self-Understanding: I recognize how my choice will affect myself, others and the whole, knowing that all choice will result in an adverse/negative/undesired effect on some level, in some realm.

5. Self-Love: I remove any feelings of doubt, shame, guilt, etc., by holding to the knowingness that the choice made was made with love and from the highest point of understanding currently achieved.

6. Self-Transformation: I gain wisdom from the experience which will be used as a tool throughout future cycles into challenges/lessons

~Wordz of Wyzdom
