Stand in awe of everything and in admiration of everyone. If you approach the world with that consciousness, you will be able to uncover the hidden beauty in all things and hence find inspiration anywhere you look.
my biggest dream is to find that "one" person. and no i don't mean romantically, like a boyfriend or something. what i want to find is that one person i can truly call my best friend. someone who i can completely trust and count on. who can help me believe that there's something better meant to happen in this world.
that person exists out there for you right now. if you believe in karma or fate, you need to realize that this person will enter your life once you’ve merited that person. what does that mean? well think about it like this: if you visualize the person you want in your life, what he’s like, how he acts, his characteristics, strengths, virtues, etc.. —really picture him in your mind. now imagine what kind of person he is looking for in the same detailed fashion. when you fully grow into that person that the guy you imagine is looking for, the universe will bring the two of you together . but this takes real honesty and real hard work.
it's hard to admit that you're not as strong as everyone believes you are
not true. the strongest person is he who can admit his flaws, recognize his weaknesses, and bring them up into the light in order to transform them.
when my boyfriend passed away, I wasn't able to be AWAKE. I know, most people arent able to sleep, but somehow he was watching upon me, letting me dream, he used to say "keep dreaming".
that’s beautiful. i’m truly so sorry for your loss. but the soul always lives on, and it’s amazing that he is watching over you and encouraging your soul to spend more time in a realm where you can connect. i’m sending you lots love and healing .
Gabe, the next time you have a minute or two to spare, could you maybe take the time to reply? I noticed that you've talked about 'unconditional love' more than once in the past. It seems to be very important to you. But what exactly is your definition of this concept? Where does it begin? And have you - pardon the cheese - mastered the art of loving unconditionally yet? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, won't be pissed though if you keep your mouth shut ;)
wow. that’s a huge subject. and it’s funny that you are asking me this know, because just yesterday i read something from Michael Berg about this. I will just repost his message, because it captures the idea of unconditional love quite beautifully. (and no, i have yet to master it, but i work on it every day :) )
True Love is Giving
Love is probably one of the most sought after and elusive things in our world today.
Most of the pain that people feel is connected in one way or the other to love, or the lack thereof.
There is a parable that is quite whimsical, but has a very true and basic lesson about love and life.
There were two friends. One day, as they sit down to eat in a restaurant, one of the friends excitedly relates his great love for fish. For twenty minutes, as they sit waiting for someone to take their orders, he goes on about how much he loves fish and of course, when the waiter arrives he orders fish.
The waiter brings out a well-cooked order of salmon and places it in front of him. As he begins cutting away at his fish, his friend suddenly starts screaming: “How can you do that? How dare you! You liar!”
The man who ordered the fish tries to calm him down and asks what’s wrong. Still upset, his friend asks: “Is this the way to treat somebody you love? You spoke to me for so long about your love for fish, I assumed when you ordered the fish, the waiter would bring out a fishbowl and you would play with the fish, and feed it and show it some love. But then I saw that you had them murder your beloved fish and now you go ahead and cut away at it. Is this the way to treat someone you love?”
The man explains to his silly friend that what he meant when he spoke of his love for fish was that he enjoyed eating fish.
This is a comical story, but the message is particularly true. When we speak of love, we usually mean that we receive. For instance, this man enjoyed the good taste of fish and the pleasure that he received from eating it.
True love is giving and can only come about once we understand what it is and how much of a change we must make to begin to feel it. Unfortunately love between humans-and especially between partners in a committed relationship-is thought of and felt with our Desire to Receive for the Self Alone. How much can that person give me and fulfill my desires? Relationships, in order to last, must be built upon a Desire to Share by both spouses. Only when we realize that our understanding of love is flawed can we begin to work on achieving true love.
i had a dream where i fell into giant rotting tacos, and some one i knew from a long time made me eat it, even though i don't eat read meat? what do you think that means?
food dreams are always really interesting. most of the time we eat with little regard for the incredible interaction that is taking place. think about it: you are putting some object in your mouth, breaking it apart, separating the waste, and extracting the energy. our consciousness while we eat will affect how much energy we extract and how that energy fuels us. this is why two people can eat the same thing and only one of them can get sick. or why a yogi can drink lethal poison and pass it through his body without permitting it to affect him. so maybe your dream is a message to you to infuse the food you eat with consciousness. people think that when you say grace before a meal you are simply giving thanks. but in fact, you are actually awakening the energy hidden within the food in order to receive the maximum benefit from eating it. may sound hokey, but it’s something to think about.
I think my dream is be something in the life. Not only born and die, be something that your kids and family be proud. I'm in my way, and I can do that, I guess. What about you
i recently realized that being a symbol for others is probably one of the most important things we can hope to achieve. so you’re exactly right—to be someone your kids and family can be proud of is something to always strive for. it’s funny to hear myself say this now because i’d always be violently opposed to being looked at as any sort of role model. i was always scared of being disappointed and in turn i was terrified of being disappointing. so i guess i wanted to protect myself from those things, and i wanted to keep expectations low because i thought i would fail. but as i’ve grown, i’ve become more grounded and i realize that even when i fail, i need to be a symbol of how to do so with dignity. only when you have dignity for yourself and for others, can you truly start to appreciate all that life has to offer.
they say dreams are real only for as long as they last..
..couldn’t you say the same thing about life?
I have the weirdest dreams on planes. It felt like I was awake. I thought I could hear the people in the row across from me talking about me. In my dream I opened my eyes and recognized them: two dudes from old punk bands. They were discussing whether or not they were more famous than I was, but they didn’t think I could hear them. It was super bizarre… what does it mean?
