Your efforts to coerce me to bloom will be all for naught.
Allow your efforts to wash away in the rains of time.
Never will I reveal my true self to another soul.
Never will I show my face under the starry night sky.
Never will I show my eyes to you.
Never will I shine.
Never will I step into the spotlight for others to see.
Never will I show you who I am.
I exist just how a lotus exists.
The lotus never reveals her secrets to another.
I was not born from searing hatred, nor skin ripping cold.
I am real, I can feel, I exist.
Nonetheless, no one will ever gaze upon the emotions within me.
The spectrum from sadness to joy will remain behind closed lips.
I just am as this just is as just you are.
I remain behind the fan, behind the lenses, behind the door, behind the walls, behind the human I reside in within this lifetime.
“Let go and let god”
Easier said than done right?
When things are said and done in the heat of the moment, it’s near to impossible to believe that.
Well, at the end of the day the little quarrels between person to person really don’t matter.
You don’t have control of the other person(s).
However, YOU are in control of yourself.
No one can ever take that away from you.
Peace and love to all.
Being happy doesn’t mean you have acquired your needs and desires.
Nor does it mean that you have to have a person, place, or thing in your life to make it so.
Being happy means that you have made the decision to hold positivity, love, gratitude in your heart, regardless of what you have.
Being happy means that you have made the decision to be so regardless where you are in life.
You always have a choice. If you wish to be happy, choose to be happy and do what you can to make it so.
One simple thought can change your whole entire day!
It’s pretty simple when you think about it
Any positive thought would do.
Give it a try!
It could very well make your day. 😉
Yesterday is over, today is now, and tomorrow isn’t here yet.
A bad yesterday won’t affect a good tomorrow.
Brush the dust off from yesterday and start anew today.
Everyday is a brand new beginning.
Today is here and today is now.
You are in the here and the now, not in the yesterday.
Now is the time to achieve your greatest dreams.
Even if it takes one day at a time, go forward with confidence.
You will succeed.
Don’t fret about today.
Things happen the way they are meant to.
Tomorrow you will be reborn.
A chance for a new and fresh start.
Don’t stress about the past.
It no longer exists.
It can’t hurt you.
Don’t worry about the future.
You can’t control everything that has yet to happen.
The present is right where you need to be.
It’s not only a moment in time, it’s also a feeling and state of being.
It’s feeling and being at one with your heart and soul.
I am Zen.
I breathe it, see it, feel it.
My actions are Zen.
My thoughts, beliefs, and intentions are Zen.
I lost ‘self’, ‘want’, ‘desire’, ‘crave’, ‘wish’, and ‘ego’.
With that I am left with light, love, and Zen.
I am Zen; I am whole.
