Calming your fears

โ€œ I am come to calm your fears; to console you in the absence of bright days and to reassure you of their return. โ€œ

Snowdrops in the Victorian language of flowers

Let yourself feel loved

The only thing you need to do to feel loved is to let yourself feel loved, not by anyone, but in and of its own, and that is the only love that can be truly unconditional. Lock this knowledge in your heart and it will be a perpetually shining light even in the thickest darkness, like a seed covered in winter snow it will be your hope when the world is cold reminding you of who you are and of your truest nature.

Love does not need a giver or receiver

Love does not need a giver or receiver to exist, nor does it need to be manifested. Love is a gift to humanity, but it does not need humanity. Love needs nothing but itself, it gives of itself to itself, yet it does not need to be received for there is no space in which it does not exist.

Your Worthiness of Love

Your worthiness of love has nothing to do with how many people love you or how deeply loved you are. It exists entirely on its own, unneeding of anyone to acknowledge it, including yourself. It can not diminish nor increase because it is immeasurable in its immaterial infinity.

A peaceful life

Animals have a lot to teach us about slow living.

They live as though time does not exist.

They sleep when they need to sleep, play for joy, cuddle when they feel like it and eat when they are hungry.

They live a natural life, untouched by ambition. Their purpose is simply to be alive.

You donโ€™t have to fill those moments of silence

You donโ€™t have to fill
Those moments of silence
With anything
But deep gentling breaths
Like summer tide softening
Upon a quiet bay
Hidden away from the storm.

Will you fly or will you fall?

Are you lonely or have you bloomed?
Will there grow flowers where youโ€™ve walked?
Are you brave or are you lost?
Will you stay quiet or will you talk?
Into a sky or out to sea,
Will your petals fly or will they fall?
When roads are empty,
When the world is asleep,
Will your colors fade or
Will you walk on ?
