New Year 2009 - sparkle and shine



"And now, let us welcome the New Year
Full of things that have never been."
-Rainer Maria Rilke


I am not going to write a lot.
I am going to post an email that I sent someone.
A long time ago.

And she sent it back to me today.
And...well..


"I HAVE THIS CONCEPT - THAT IF YOU STAY ON YOUR OWN PATH, AND YOU'RE TRUE TO YOURSELF, AND YOU care - REALLY CARE FOR OTHERS REGARDLESS OF THEIR ACTIONS, THAT THE UNIVERSE WILL RESPOND IN LIKE FASHION.  THAT YOU WILL BE WITH PEOPLE THAT HAVE THEIR OWN PATH, ARE TRUE TO THEMSELVES AND THEIR OWN BELIEFS, AND THAT CARE - REALLY CARE FOR YOU.

HAPPY BREEDS HAPPY.  LOVE BREEDS LOVE.  HATE BREEDS HATE.  GOOD HORSE STOCK BREEDS GOOD HORSES.  BAD BREEDS BAD. ON AND ON AND ON.

THE CHALLENGE COMES WHEN THE WHOLE WORLD IS SPINNING OUT OF CONTROL AROUND YOU (OR YOUR perception IS THAT IT IS) AND YOU ARE CALLED UPON TO GRAB YOUR OWN GUT, YOUR INNER SELF, WHAT YOU KNOW TO BE TRUE AND RIGHT AND GOOD, AND STAND STRONG AND LET THE CRAZINESS SPIN OUT AROUND YOU.  I THINK OF THOSE TORNADOS IN THE MIDWEST - THEY ARE TOTAL DEVASTATION, YES, BUT THEY BLOW BY IN A MATTER OF MINUTES.  AND IF YOU CAN JUST STAND STRONG, YOU SURVIVE THOSE FEW MINUTES OF YOUR LIFE AND GO ON.

BE THE STRONG IN ANOTHER PERSONS LIFE.  BE THE LOVE OF THEIR LIFE.  BE THE STRONG IN YOUR LIFE.  BE THE LOVE OF YOUR OWN LIFE."



sparkle and shine
2009

"Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it." - Rumi
