Here’s to 2 3 years of borrowing this lifetime-this exhilarating and whimsical school of life. 2 3 years of being lost only to be found. 2 3 years of dreaming illusions before waking up to truth cannot be revoked. 2 3 years of giving and to be given more than what is expected. 2 3 years of being too much of myself and to finally let go and surrender to emptiness grandly liberating. 2 3 years of holding back and now allowing what is necessary to be there. 2 3 years of constantly feeling different yet always easily creating home. 2 3 and many years of loving unconditionally. My dear Universe, earth is beautiful, I am deeply honored, bless all the souls with me here. Happy 23rd birthday to this human I am grateful to take care of very well. My Soul loves me so much, I am infinite!
Only Love Only Light

Day 21 of “21 Beautiful Days Before Turning 21”

Finally. I’d like to go back to the most significant memory of my 20th year: my summer epiphany. I take it now that when you’re young, it is possible to have that spiritual healing you could use for a lifetime, it’s not only for the aged who had mostly seen all the cracks of life.The catastrophe that I had wasn’t the worst battle in the world, but my adolescence wasn’t the brightest at all. I lived the years of constantly falling into hollow holes and I admit I had disliked life so much but while I was lost,it’s through loving and understanding troubles and heartaches with patience that I stumbled upon a nascent endeavor that helped me find myself and made me trust God even more. Suddenly, the world became vast, the universe opened and my soul expanded. I’ve learned to believe in myself more, forgive my wrong choices in the past and keep going with my dreams, my purpose. Everyone and everything started to be even more transparent to me. I would look at people the way I look at myself that my love for this world grew deeper. I live not only for myself but as well as for my family, friends,special someone and even for everyone. I found out that the basic value of living lies in our responsibility to be something for somebody, we all should take good care of each other for we are the only ones who could be there for ourselves. Life won’t always be a shade of rainbows, but where I am now I am grateful with confidence to say I love who I am now and this shall stay wherever eternity takes me. Thank you for existing in my life! -Yours truly

There’s nothing as fearful as the unknown and nothing as cruel than doubt and yet there’s nothing that is worse than not following a path that gives life to your being just because there are a lot to be at stake. The best things aren’t always easy that you sometimes debate against your beliefs until you listen to your inner voice that fights to say “I have to do this!” and all you have to hold is faith. Yes all you will ever have is faith and it’s more than anything you could ever need to get to your desires. -Yours truly

You Lost.Get Found in Solitude

I tend to worry when people assume solitude to be that dire situation pushing you into the precipice of dying thinking isolation is the chance to entertain troubles-to alter this,I’d like you to treat solitude with wisdom. Solitude is neither self-destruction nor social anxiety, it’s actually the total evaluation and appreciation of your being. Nobody knows you but yourself, nobody ever sees what you see, and nobody else is going to live your life for you so you should actually embrace your own silence-the silence that will bring you back to your soul.In silence, you hear the sound of your heartbeat and you feel the spaces around you that you want to fill with “something”. Your heartbeat and the spaces around you will remind you of everything you desire, of everything you wish to hold and this is how you will live. In solitude, contemplate the places you want to go to, the experiences you dare to acquire, the stories you want to write and tell, the pictures you want to paint, the songs you want to play, the people you love and want to be with and the greater you you intend to become-these thoughts give meaning to your life for these are the thoughts you want to turn into things. So take some time in a quiet corner and listen to your heart and soul, only in the stillness of the world you will have a clearer vision of what you want to be and where you want to be, only in solitude you will capture the core of your existence and because of this you gain your strength and confidence, you begin to expand your understanding. You begin to see where you are at the moment and become aware of the next step.
-Yours truly

If you wanna be alive, start by touching the constant weight of the earth: the gravity. Remember that no matter who you are and where you are at the moment of your life, surround yourself with thoughts that could only lift you up and never ever let anything or anyone make you fall back into the ground if you’ve fought enough to raise your being, you are the one living your life for you.
-Yours truly

Today’s Meditation

Chaos, cruelty, poverty-all these things I try to ignore not because I care less but because I care with an aching compassion and yet I know I cannot save the world on my own and I can’t control everyone. But I tell you this, you are fortunate enough to still have a life but indeed it’s the truth that you can’t be certain of what happens next. Just keep holding on to your faith and always focus on the good, attract the light and every positive energy and you’ll be guided and guarded. It’s sad when you cannot save everyone but then this is the way life is, what had passed should pass,accept and let go, remain where you are and improve it. You can’t control anyone’s life because you have your own-this is how we all live alone
-Yours truly
