FELIZ NAVIDAD EVERYONE! and doesn´t matter what you believe in or what you don´t believe in... at the end... WE ALL ARE longing and looking for the same things (aren´t we?)
aren´t we all looking for:
love? happiness? peace? a hand that holds ours? a hug? a smile which smiles back at ours? moments that makes us wanna run and jump out of joy? eyes which lit up when they see us? good news? a space to fill alive and important?
Those are THE IMPORTANT THINGS I keep talking about, those are the sacred and treasured things we need to cultivate and look for... the only way to have them is TO GIVE THEM FIRST!
To have love you have to love yourself first. To be happy you just HAVE to realize you have happiness all around! (is already there, just open your eyes! seriously!!! OPEN THEM!!!! Most of the time we don´t realize how fortunate we are!) For peace?.... you have to be peaceful to yourself and to others! To have a hand holding yours...(this is a tricky one!) You have to REACH OUT first! be vulnerable... open your hand and reach out! You go first! (don´t be shy, is ok... someone will hold it I promise!). For a hug? just open you arms VERY WIDE!!!! (if nothing happens you close them around you and hug yourself... but most of the time -guaranteed- someone will hug you back! (cause we all LOVE to hug... some of you just don´t know it YET!) For a smile... is just as easy as YOU smling first... (yeah, some people will find it weird at first -we are so not used to it - but wait! keep smiling... and they they will smile back at you!). For moments of joy?... WORK HARD FOR THEM!!! Create them! produce them! and also BE AWARE they happen all the time! the precious moments of joy are always sprouting all around... but do we really see them? do we really care? or we just mistake the frivolous for the important? For eyes which lit up looking at you.... first... close yours for a second, empty your mind... stay there... THERE! you have to lit up your eyes with the truth of the nothingness to be able to look around and find other pair of eyes which will recognize yours and in an instant lit up looking at yours! For good news? keep away from the negative side of things... stay far away from the dark, from hate, from remorse and guilt... be a singer of songs, be the one who spread them, focus only in positive and happiness.... the good news follow those who care only for good news! (That´s why in the old days they used to kill the messenger who brought bad news... it makes sense!) wink emoticon
For a space to fill alive and important: stop! stop right there. Wherever you are... look at your feet... you see them? you see them holding you?
THAT´S YOUR SPACE IN THE WORLD THAT IS YOU BEING ALIVE AND YOU ARE IMPORTANT! ok... give a step forward... repeat the same thing. STOP!!! look at your feeet... THAT´S YOUR SPACE IN THE WORLD AND YOU ARE IMPORTANT! IN EVERY STEP YOU TAKE! May you be able to see and produce "the important things" in your life TODAY and ALWAYS!
