Hi, dear friends and followers. Today I would like to take you on a little trip into the realm of the heart. Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoy reading the entry. I encourage you to leave comments if you would, please, otherwise I have no way to know if my work is noticed.
Have you ever asked yourself about what is the driving force in some of us that causes us to do things to make others happy? Self-satisfaction is certainly a factor, but it has nothing to do with selfishness. It feels more like getting a bonus for a job well done, a bonus that money could never come close to bringing such a satisfaction. It is the proof that virtue can be its own reward.
I also believe that if enough people felt and acted in a positive way, that would go a long way to improving this ailing world and save it from drowning in a sea of negativity. Such help and improvement can happen, but only if we are willing to adopt doing positive deeds and speaking positive words as ways of achieving self-satisfaction. Making such little things happen is its own reward and brings its own sweet pleasure. So let us be happy ourselves and endeavor to contribute to the happiness of others.
It took me many years to learn about myself and longer before I surrendered to the personality that dwells within me. I know now that I do not need to change myself into someone to effect change in this world. I need not be unfeeling, a warrior, standing with blade in hand, at the ready to fight off everything around her that might cause her injury. The wounds had already been inflicted by my hand.
Today I know that I do not need a sword. But I do need a shield, and it is always in my hand. What I seek the most is to hold up high the Sword of Light. It is the superior weapon in the fight to improve our world because its power comes from within me, from the feelings and beliefs held deep in my heart. Today my heart may be weak, but it's not alone, and it grows stronger with each new experience of giving or sharing. And I am not alone in this undertaking. I have a soul mate who is also my life partner with whom I share the gifts of my heart. We support one another through all of the tribulations and chaos life sends our way. We count on one another, and we can depend upon one another, and that is a rare thing in this life.
My heart has found a home among those who accept me. If you allow me to become part of your heart, I will allow you to be a part of mine. That will make the Sword of Light glow more brightly because the source of its light comes from the sharing of our happiness and positive outlook with our neighbors.
Of dreams and Fantasies
An elixir for the spirit
A fairy fantasy
Where fireflies and fairy tree homes,
twinkle in the darkness of the magic forest
Faeries, come take me out of this dull world,
For I would ride with you upon the wind,
Run on the top of the water,
And dance over the forest from tree to tree
like a flame lighting the way in the darkness.
In the land of fairy tails come true.
Thank you very much again, dear friends, for visiting my blog. Please share your thoughts with us, if you will. Have a great day.
