Glaring Truth…

It’s amazing how glaring
the truth can be, yet,
some would choose a lie
because they are afraid
of the discomfort
looking truth in the face
would cause.

All I know – My Thinking Corner

 

Sunset, Photograph, At The End of The Day

  • All I know is that when the day is done and you stare at the beautiful, deep orange blush of the Sunset, your heart knows thanks for having yet another opportunity to live a day such as this.

 

  • All I know is that even when you think that all is lost, you must take a second and third look, there’s something to be found.

 

  • All I know is that the quieter your soul becomes, the more truth it can hear in clarity. Search fervently for those quiet moments. Pause the consistent running on the treadmill of life and linger in the meadows for a while.

Do check out my latest video. It would be worth your while.

As you can imagine, like so many people, the recurring events going on around the World leads my mind down the path of ‘tolerance.’

“Tolerance is giving every other human being every right that you claim for yourself.” Robert Ingersoll

“Compassion and tolerance are not a sign of weakness, but a sign of strength.” Dalai Lama

When we tolerate each other despite our differences, we give room for peace and life.

Awesome thoughts come your way through these beautiful friends:

Killing each other: this is a thoughtful poem from Rosema filled with unanswered questions that have been dancing in our minds. Please read.

The burden of hate: short truth from Dollops of heedful rambling. Letting go is to rise and live.

I hope that you find these little drops useful now and again. Do check them out and please share snippets of your thoughts with us.

Thanks and blessed be.

Tuesdays Trickles…My thinking corner 24

Every Tuesday, I share snippets of thoughts that I call ‘My Thinking Corner.’

I would like to invite you to participate. The challenge is quite simple. You can check this link for more details.

I realised that sharing so many snippets at once might actually not add as much value because the centre of focus oscillates between so many things, so I’m narrowing it down and dwelling on a snippet at a time to create better value.

Burden:

♦ Until we can truly lay down our burdens, our load will not be light.

♦ A load carried on the head, should not be carried in the heart.

When we learn to trust the Lord with our excess baggage, we are truly lightened of its nagging weight. It’s a process that might take the time to understand, but it’s a process worth applying to ones’ life.

Beautiful thoughts come your way from two awesome and inspiring blogger friends of mine:

Open your eyes and look: Dehan’s message is surely one to start the day with.

Follow the leader: Rosema knows how to deliver sweet and succinct messages. I like this.

I hope that you find these little drops useful now and again. Do check them out and please share snippets of your thoughts with us.

I’m sure that you understand this fact that “not everyone you relate with will like you!”

As a matter of fact, some who don’t even know you well enough may not be particularly keen on you for reasons best known to them.

In the secret recess of their heart, such people experience a certain sense of elation and feel better about themselves when you are down and out.

Are you going to join the gang up against yourself?

Are you going to continue to give them the pleasure of seeing you miserable and bleeding to death?

Why do you think that bad news travels so fast and the harbingers of bad news are in far more available quantities *for the price of nothing* than those who are willing to share any positivity?

Just dwell a bit on it!

The sooner you realize these things and pull up yourself by choosing to be happy no matter what, choosing to excel to the best of your ability and choosing to love yourself despite all your shortcomings, that’s when you can begin to experience many turnarounds in your life.

Out of the silent breath

Enchant me with your expressive eyes, that crinkles in laughter as you speak

that I may find myself ever caught between

the reflections of your pupils and there shall I remain.

When you’ve got somewhere to go, distractions will crop up and pop out from every available woodwork and if you are not mindful and focused, you’ll probably spend far too much invaluable time facing shadows that are not worthwhile.

The truth that you tell yourself in times like this is the truth that you come to believe. If you say ‘oh, I can’t go through this,’ that’s true; if you say, ‘I am going to crack this,’ that’s also your truth.

Whichever way you chose to go, into the light or in the shadows, will determine your reality.
