Fleeting

image

As the moments flash by,
We know to cherish them
We know to appreciate the good
To ignore the “bad”
To stay present in the moment
Means staying in the thoughts
That feel good..relentlessly
It means claiming NOW as your
Point of power
It means you are only controlling
Yourself..your mood
So if you want to fly..fly
But if you want to keep pulling yourself underwater..then yes you’ll do that to yourself too
If you want to capture these moments to the fullest
Do not look to the conditions of your life to captivate you
Look to yourself
To capture the essence
Of what you’re looking for
Feel your way along your path
Stop looking at it so much
Stop judging it so much
Start adjusting your mood
So it is prepared for all the wonderful moments you seek
Once you look inward
To feel ideal
Once you realise this is your power to use for fun..for amazement
Once you seek happiness
Success
Comfort
Love
From yourself solely
In each moment
Then
You are capturing this fleeting time to the fullest

Doves

Previously working materially while the true lovers wait ambitiously. A heart full of love and a mind full of doubt, would you be faithful, count after count? Rid oneself of external tinkering, pay attention to what’s been lingering. Internal answers given with surety, something remembered, a certain purity. Take the plunge for the sake of love, knowing full well that owl is my dove.

Stepping On Hearts

CKHuy1

It was never that my old ways

Of spontaneous deception weren’t serving me

Materially

They could get me whatever I wanted

But sooner or later, the rip tide comes

Thrusts you onto the ground, face full of sand

The sobs seemed unending

Grief

The force of it all nearly killed me

These poor souls, and who was I to parade

Around, stepping on hearts, carelessly?

I started to want different things

Things I was so unfamiliar with

I almost gave up, gave in to the madness

Almost handed my soul to the devil

Because I thought he deserved it

And I deserved him

But then, I stood up

Sometimes with such vague conviction

That this time, from here on out

I would never let another difficulty

Stop me

I would help

Those who need me

By the way…

Hand-Selected Wisdom From Albert Einstein

He had many gems for quotes, but these are some good ones. Enjoy!

There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.

I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination.  Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.

If you can’t explain it to a six year old, you don’t understand it yourself.

Logic will get you from A to Z; imagination will get you everywhere.

I must be willing to give up what I am in order to become what I will be.

Time is an illusion.

Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.

Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by it’s ability to climb a tree, it will live it’s whole life believing that it is stupid.

If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairytales.  If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairytales.

Once you accept the universe as matter expanding into nothing that is something, wearing stripes with plaid comes easy.
