If I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I'd want to pass along to others...
Let your fears and your dreams dance as one. Don’t allow either side to win, instead embrace both, and become neither. Both of them are your creations, and neither of them are who you really are. Learn to dance in this paradox, it will save you much heartache and disappointment.
Don’t be afraid to be the one who loves the most. The secret of the one who loves the most is that they are also the happiest. Give and forgive, without any fear that you may ever lose, because it is not possible.
Loss is an illusion of the mind, let go of anything and anyone that you fear to lose. You will experience a new kind of freedom. Live your life with an inner knowing that anything and anyone that has shaped you, is a part of you, and can never be lost.
Everything that you want is on the other side of everything that you are avoiding. Pay attention to everything that you are chasing, now let go of it, and run directly towards your fears. Look a little bit closer to what hurts, what brings discomfort, what you are hiding from. Bring it closer, work through it, heal through it, and you will break down the walls that keep you from experiencing everything that you want.
Believe in your dreams and trust your intuition. Even if nobody else believes, believing in yourself is enough. Listen to yourself, be kind to your heart, and live with eagerness and excitement. Nobody else needs to understand, nobody else will ever know your truth as well as you do.
You heart unites, you mind divides, live in harmony, not in tug of war. The duality of the world can seem overwhelming. You will notice that very frequently your heart and mind will contradict each other. Allow the darkness and lightness to help you create contrast, learn to make your decisions based on what would make you happy and what is best for the greater good. Most of the time it will be your heart.
Always look inside for the answers. Even with good intentions other people’s opinions and messages can mislead you. Only you truly know how to align with your highest truth. You will make mistakes, but they are a part of the journey of growth and expansion. Don’t be in such a rush that you miss the wonders along the way.
Define or be defined. Society will be quick to judge you or tell you what you should or shouldn’t do. Be true to yourself, listen to yourself. Don’t allow the chatter to drown out your spirit and truth.
Shine, and give light. Other people may try to block you, simply walk away and find somewhere else to shine. Shine and share your gifts, that is why you are here. Although it may be a rainy day, remember that by sharing who you are and what you have to offer, you can make a huge difference in the world.
