In that first hardly noticed moment in which you wake,

coming back to this life from the other
more secret, moveable and frighteningly honest world
where everything began,
there is a small opening into the new day
which closes the moment you begin your plans.
When they ask you why you love the rain,
tell them it is because unlike the people who should have loved you better,
the water was never afraid to touch you;
even when you were at your most damaged and broken.
Find the nexus point of what you truly Love to do, what you can be Great at, and what the world Needs.
If you want to actualize your potential (in creativity, enjoyment, and wealth) you need to truly LOVE what you do.
It’s not enough to Love it and strive to be Great at it, you need to find a way to share your Passion and Craft with the world.
And, you need to do the often hard work of figuring out how to truly create value by giving people what they really want and are willing to pay for.
Enter: The Servant Mindset
Brush away old heartaches.
Learn from our mistakes.
Another year is finally over.
A new dawn awakes.
Let the old year out.

Welcome the new one in.
Bury the bad things of the past
As a new year now begins.
Love, like rain, can nourish from above,
drenching couples with a soaking joy.
But sometimes, under the angry heat of life,
Love dries on the surface and must nourish from below,
tending to its roots, keeping itself alive.
Remember to be gentle with yourself and others.
We are all children of chance, and none can say while some fields will blossom, and others lay brown beneath the August sun.
Care for those around you.
Look past your differences.
Their dreams are no less than yours, their choices in life no more easily made.
Give in any way you can, of whatever you possess.
To give is to love.
To withhold is to wither.
Care less for your harvest than how it is shared, and your life will have meaning, and your heart will have peace.
The people who love me, the people I really depend on, were never the critics who were pointing at me while I stumbled.
They weren’t in the bleachers at all. They were with me in the arena. Fighting for me and with me.
Nothing has transformed my life more than realizing that it’s a waste of time to evaluate my worthiness by weighing the reaction of the people in the stands.
The people who love me and will be there regardless of the outcome are within arm’s reach.
This realization has changed everything.”
It is all-important to LOVE oneself
To accept one’s flaws and weaknesses
Because without that capacity for self-compassion
How could one truly love or show compassion for anyone else?
(Taken from the book : Power, Freedom and Grace by Deepak Chopra)
Only through your soul can you create and experience the world of power, freedom and grace.
In the depths of your being is the light of pure BEING, pure LOVE, and pure JOY.
This world is unbounded, infinite, eternal, joyful.
