Dare to Dream Big!

Debra KeirceIf I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I’d want to pass along to others…

Do it.
Dare to dream.
Dream big.
Dream the details.
Imagine the day when your dream comes true.
Surround yourself with people who support your dream. In turn, support them in their dreams.

In this way, you will succeed. Be willing to sacrifice, and be willing to walk away from those who criticize or distract. Be generous and loving in your pursuits. Lift others up because you know that your biggest assets in this journey are the love and support of those around you. Let go of anyone who tries to hold you back. Do not judge, and do not allow yourself to be judged. Keep your eyes on the prize. It doesn’t matter whether people understand your intentions. It doesn’t matter if you fail in your first attempts. You will fail in your first attempts. The journey will be full of unexpected turns and amazing adventures. Take time to thoroughly enjoy achievements along the way. The biggest dreams are full of the biggest joys, the deepest disappointments and the most adversity. Through it all, keep an unrelenting focus on your goals.

“Dream” is a verb. It is an act that starts with a single thought. It’s not something that happens to you. It’s not a story you can watch play out on its own. It is not a description of something attained by a privileged few. It’s not a reward for being in the right place at the right time. Dreaming requires your active participation. Plan for success. Structure that single thought in a unique way that describes joy, contentment, peace, happiness and success for you on a very personal level. Nurture and feed that thought so it can grow. Chance opportunities will present themselves, but don’t rely on chance. Rather, be prepared to forge ahead when doors open for you. If you dare to dream, be tenacious in pursuit of that dream. Invest yourself heart and soul.

Even before you reach your goals, you will inspire people to set their own. With every challenge that knocks you down, people will see you as a Luminary when you get back up and soldier on.

If you want to change the world in a positive way, dream with passion.

See the path to the finish line as your life’s journey. And when one dream ends, celebrate and start a new one. Show us how it’s done. Simply, dream. Do it.

Debra Keirce is an internationally collected artist who lives in Northern Virginia, USA. Debra paints from life, photo references, and her imagination. Her paintings are very realistic, but her subject matter is nothing that exists for you to readily photograph. For this reason, her art is often referred to as hauntingly familiar. Art critic Brian Sherwin, Editor of The Art Edge, commented on Debra’s still life paintings. Sherwin said, "Artist Debra Keirce approaches her still life paintings with a playful sense of surrealism. The work I observed appears to capture a dream-like quality. This quality is heightened by Debra’s love of unique still life arrangements." For Ms. Keirce, being an artist is the continuation of a dream that started in Detroit in 1978 when she was 17 years old. That was the year she decided to live a life of magic, and seemingly improbable, if not impossible, goals. She decided then and there to become a chemical engineer. She later left engineering to raise a family when she was on the verge of being promoted into management, raise three children as a stay at home mom, and began a successful career as a professional fine artist. And, the dream continues.

Awaken Your Inner Possibility

Topics: Life Lessons, Possibility, Trust

Panache DesaiIf I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I’d want to pass along to others…

Walk softly upon the earth knowing that truth can only be experienced in silence. In soulful spaciousness, questions are answered, and possibility unfolds.

See divinity in all that you meet, recognizing the light of the creator in all that you see. We are all connected. We are all one.

Recognize that in knowing others, you are in truth being given an opportunity to know yourself.

Even the most hurtful and vicious of them is you and by extending a loving hand, you are gathering up the discarded parts of your humanity.

Marvel in your uniqueness and recognize it as a blessing. In the absence of all that you deem deficient about yourself, you would be rendered unable to bring your true purpose into being.

The Divine wants you to know that you are beautiful. You are perfectly formed. You are enough.

Speak the life-altering truth that you’ve incarnated to share and know that as scary as it may be, in uttering it, you will set yourself and others free.

Above all else, be yourself. Trust that your unique expression is all that is required.

Fame and fortune are fleeting. A life lived for praise and admiration will always be mired by criticism and blame. Recognition and money do not make you more than the divine being you already are.

Take only what is yours and leave the rest. A million dollars earned out of harmony with your soul will give you a million moments of sorrow.

Know that love is real. Love exists. Love has always existed. It existed before there was an earth. Before there were galaxies. Before anything, we know as life came into being. Love is an infinite ocean in which you swim. It is the air we breathe. It permeates every particle, every molecule, and every single aspect of our experience.

If we cannot trace love back to its beginnings, then surely we know that love never ends.

This is the one constant, never-changing truth of life itself: Love dwells within you. Around you. For you. Through you. Ever-present, available, accessible. It is your guiding principle. Once true love has touched your heart, all that is earthly will pale in significance.

Your life is God’s gift to this world.

Rest in the truth of this and allow it to anchor your heart in peace.

A most beneficial use of time is silent meditation, while searching for guidance from within.
We all experience rare moments when a blinding revelation comes to us, when we suddenly see things differently than ever before. Usually, however, we learn the truth about ourselves gradually, over long periods of time, from quiet introspection. We are all spiritual, but some of us have learned to tap more effectively into the great strength that resides in the spiritual portion of ourselves. The spirit is not boisterous and noisy. Getting in touch with your spiritual self demands tranquillity and solitude. Make sure you dedicate a portion of every day to thought and study, to think and reflect upon your life. Choose a time and place that best allow you to relax your mind and devote your thoughts to reflection. Napoleon Hill

The Power is from within, the choice is yours

Don’t give up

“Do not follow what you desire – instead follow your intuition of what your joy is.” – Sheila Hageman

Don’t give up (you’re on the right track)

Wrestling with a puzzle, a project or a problem, the likeliest reason to give up is the belief that it can’t be done. What’s the point of persevering if it’s actually impossible to succeed?

"It can’t be done," we say, throwing up our hands. Not "I can’t do it," or "It’s not worth my time," but "It can’t be done."

Do what you feel in your heart to be rightIn the year after Roger Bannister broke the 4 minute mile, the record was broken again and again. Once people realized it could be done, it wasn’t an impossible task any longer. And that’s why there’s a flood of tablets on the market, many from companies that had what they needed to build the first one, but didn’t until Apple showed them the way.

Two things you might take away from this:

First: There’s solace in finding someone who has done it before, whatever "it" is you’re trying to do. Knowing that it’s possible and studying how it was done can’t help but increase the chances you’ll stick it out.

Second: Huge value accrues to the few able to actually do a thing for the very Don’t wake up in the morning resentful of the day ahead. Smile and hear your soul, clearly saying, –   first time.

Your life is a learning process – you can only become wiser from learning. Sometimes you might have to attract making a painful mistake to learn something important, but after the mistake you have far greater wisdom. Wisdom cannot be bought with money – it can only be acquired through living life. With wisdom comes: strength, courage, knowing, and an ever-increasing peace. May the joy be with you, Rhonda Byrne

This is almost the last one enjoy.. All the way from the Daily mail “the Christmas flight”

from Judith Blatherwick

A swish of scarlet velvet trimmed with white, as bright as snow.  highly polished buttons glinting with a golden glow.

sapphire eyes which sparkle Like the stars up in the sky, Excited, snorting reindeer, who can’t wait to start to fly.

A sleigh piled high with presents tied with ribbon and whit bows.  A list of nice and naughty Showing where each parcel goes.

Below the day is ending, dusk is lit by fairy light, the snow is gently falling on this peaceful winter night.

Excited children gaze up both bursting with joy and fear: they hope to see some magic, as Santa passes near.

The sleigh bells gently jingle, strong harnesses are strained.  The reindeer paw and fidget, but they wait, as they were trained.

The reins are firmly gathered, ‘til at last it’s time to leave.  The magic words are spoken: ‘Now fly, It’s Christmas Eve’

The Guiding Light You Didn’t Know You Have

The secret of accomplishment is concentration, or the art of turning all your power upon just one point at a time.

 

Topics: Fulfilment, Harmony, Purpose

Gary_DoyleIf I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I’d want to pass along to others…

Forty years of pursuing and achieving the American Dream left me feeling unsatisfied, unfulfilled and not at peace with myself. What happened?

Following an extended period of evaluation and self-searching I made a discovery that was so simple and at the same time frightening. Why hadn’t I found the answer earlier? What held me back?

The fact is that our society teaches us that if we just follow the guidelines,we will fulfil ourselves via accomplishments and material rewards. And so we get on the treadmill and stay on the treadmill thinking that if we just clear the next hurdle we will achieve joy and happiness.

What I’ve learned is that it is only when our mind, body, spirit and soul are in alignment can we truly reach satisfaction and fulfilment. We must find our purpose, our meaning and live it if we are to reach the fulfilment that we so desire. That does not mean that the American Dream must be forsaken, it only means that we must be pursuing it in harmony with our purpose.

As I dug deeper to find my own purpose I discovered these truths.

We all have a purpose – one that provides meaning and direction for our lives. We may not have found it yet or we may have found it and suppressed it but we all have one.

It is never too late. No matter your age, no matter your past decisions, if you have only one day left to live, starting the journey will bring peace, satisfaction and fulfilment to your life.

Finding it requires a disciplined and detailed process. It is not something that is found by accident.

Purpose is not a job or a role. It is a guiding light, how you apply it to what you do is up to you.

Staying true to it is even more difficult than finding it. Family, friends and society in general are constantly causing us to question its veracity and its value and your ability to live it. Don’t give in.

Fulfilment and satisfaction come from the journey not the achievement of our purpose. It is from tending to the journey that the fruits of satisfaction and fulfilment are harvested.

Living our life with meaning requires that we must be all in. Our mind, body, spirit and soul must all be committed to our purpose. We must be aligned and balanced in our approach. We cannot get and stay fit if our spirit, soul and mind aren’t aligned towards that end. We cannot discover our purpose unless our mind, body, spirit and soul are committed to the task.

Purpose lies within and we must find it and the power that comes with it or be forever controlled by what lies without.

The time to begin is now. We need not wait for a life-changing event to prompt action. Start from that feeling inside that says, “Is this all there is”? Do it now and live a life of harmony and peace.

“There is a magnificent life that is waiting for you to wake up and remember who you are and why you are here.”– Rev. Cynthia James
