Blessed Are The Hearts…

“Blessed are the hearts that can bend; they shall never be broken.”

I wonder what Albert Camus was going through when he made this wonderful observation that is now a quote credited to him…

It is most applicable in these most dire times of our day to day living…

We must learn to teach our hearts to bend with the trials and tribulations that confront us from moment to moment, daily…or we will find ourselves overcome with the trauma of our hearts being broken…at every turn…and unless we know how to bend…we will surely perish under the onslaught…

In order to find the light at the end of tumultuous tunnels…we must become the light.

We must learn to see all sides of every situation…and choose to do what is best not only for ourselves…but for the good of others as well.

We must understand what breaks hearts…and not be a contributor in causing heartbreak for others, as well as ourselves.

In learning to bend our hearts to avoid heartbreak, we can also help others in learning to bend…It isn’t love that breaks hearts…it’s people…

Love is the great teacher…that helps us to bend…

In order to receive it we must open our hearts…

How do we understand love?

We graciously and unconditionally accept it…

And gift it to others…by sharing it…even in our darkest of times…because Love Is…and always will be…Humanity’s saving grace.

Blessed are the hearts that can bend…they shall never be broken…

For these are the hearts that have accepted the healing…bending…

And regenerative…Power of Love….

Today in America…and the world over…We need hearts to bend.

August 5th Was Her Choice…

She’s gone now…

Every August 5th… I remember…because that was her choice…

She chose a day that represents Freedom…Change…and Adventure…All the things that she embodied.

She lived and exercised her freedom in her thoughts…words…and deeds…respected and fought for her freedom to express and to be true to herself…as she respected and fought for the freedom of others…She was no shrinking violet…she spoke her mind and put forth the truth with eloquence…supported change…and lived her life with adventure! I took it all in…and jumped into my life embracing Freedom…Change…and Adventure!

I am who I am…because of her…

Now…she lives in my heart…and flies through time…and space…a light of brilliance…in the Cosmos…in Divinity…She waits…to make her next choice.

She…was my mother….

I am forever grateful and blessed…

That August 5th…was her choice…

To shine here…on Earth…for 83 years…

Thanks Mom…

Your Love will last…

Forever.

Purity of Heart…

“Blessed are the pure in heart…for they shall see GOD.”

Once in a great while…someone comes unto your path…and they show you things about life and you…that you were never conscious of…because you thought you were on the right path…and you were honed in on your self-realization…better than average…so you thought… The Teacher can always be the Student…and the Student…can always be a Teacher…that is the first commandment of spiritual evolution…discount nothing…and always walk with an open heart…

Purity of Heart would not ever condemn or lay blame

Purity of Heart would understand and love more

To unlock, open and pass through…a closed door

Purity of Heart would not shame or seek to tame…

Nor game…or defame

Purity of Heart knows only Love…

Given divinely from above

Purity of Heart is a blessing…to all.

Especially when love is given in comfort…

After a betrayal…or fall…

Purity of Heart does not keep score

Or tally mistakes…

Purity of Heart is always constant and never forsakes

Truth…Trust…Honesty…and Honor…

Are always tested…

Purity of Heart passes no judgments—

It knows your heart…and is completely invested…

Purity of Heart…is a rarity among humans, you see…

It is a state that few achieve in a lifetime…realistically.

We are flawed, broken…and in need of repair…

A fate we all share…

Purity of Heart is patient…and doesn’t dwell

On what’s not there…

It gives love…which manifests whatever is needed…

With care…

Purity of Heart is Humankind’s Savior…and Grace

Those who have received…are humbled profoundly…

To have gazed upon his…or her face….

To recognize this phenomenon, is even greater still…because there are those who walk among us…like ancient relics from the past…when virtues…values, principles and the bond of your word was accepted and honored in agreements of any kind…and that is how they live their lives…with purity of heart…

For some…it is easier than others…but guess what? We can all achieve this blessing…if we become the student…instead of the teacher…

Isn’t purity of heart worth the transition?

Take a seat…in the classroom of Life…

It’s never too late to learn…

And pay attention to those who come to you with a pure heart…

The face who is delivering the lesson…is a Messenger of God.

Take the extended branch of Enlightenment….

Thank you, Eric…for showing me such purity….

a day
