July 6th – Magical Words

Once again, I turn to the Masters of wisdom to express what I am trying to say. 💞

“Magic is believing in yourself. If you can do that, you can make anything happen. ” – Johann Wolfgang Van Goethe
“When you look at life through eyes of gratitude, the world becomes a magical and amazing place.” – Jennifer Gayle
“Magic comes from what is inside you. It is a part of you. You can’t weave together a spell that you do not believe in.” – Jim Butcher
“The magic in this world seems to work in whispers and small kindnesses.” – Charles de Lindt
“There is a kind of magic about going far away and then coming back all changed.” – Kate Douglas Wiggins
“When you are touched by magic, nothing is ever quite the same again. What makes me really sad is all those people who have never had the chance to know that touch.” – Charles de Lint

It is time to get going and find myself some magical moments. I hope you find yours today. 🧚

Rumi

When I sat down to meditate this morning, I ran across a meditation by Brian Scott ‘The Divine Wisdom of Rumi’.

I have always been fascinated by those unique individuals who prove their brilliance by simply stating the obvious truths of life. Rumi, a Persian poet who lived in the thirteenth century, was one such individual. His wisdom is so timeless and genuine that it is as relevant today as it was thousands of years ago.

The following Rumi quotes particularly spoke to me this morning:

“Your task is not to seek love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”

“Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.”

“It’s your road and yours alone, others may walk it with you, but no one can walk it for you.”

“Raise your words, not voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder.”

“If you are looking for a friend who is faultless, you will be friendless.”

“One of the marvels of the world: The sight of a soul sitting in prison with the key in its hand.”

“A candle never loses any of its light while lighting up another candle.”

Take care & stay safe. 💞
