Some beautiful poetry from the fantastic Hafiz, about… L'amour, of course! 

 

 

It Felt Love

How

Did the rose

Ever open its heart

And give to this world

All its

Beauty?

It felt the encouragement of light

Against its

Being,

Otherwise,

We all remain

Too

Frightened.

____

 

The Day Sky

Let us be like

Two falling stars in the day sky.

 

Let no one know of our sublime beauty

As we hold hands with God

And burn

 

Into a sacred existence that defies -

That surpasses

 

Every description of ecstasy

And love.

 

___

Faithful Lover

The moon came to me last night

With a sweet question.

She said,

"The sun has been my faithful lover

For millions of years.

Whenever I offer my body to him

Brilliant light pours from his heart.

Thousands then notice my happiness

And delight in pointing

Toward my beauty.

Hafiz,

Is it true that our destiny

Is to turn into Light

Itself?"

And I replied,

Dear moon,

Now that your love is maturing,

We need to sit together

Close like this more often

So I might instruct you

How to become

Who you

Are!

 

To err is human, to forgive is divine.

This weekend I wish for all to find joy and peace, inside of your hearts. This saying caMe to me and i see why… Without forgiveness there can be no #joy, there can be no #peace, not truly. If our minds are still scolding someone, our hearts feeling betrayed, if our mouths are still retelling that story 'woe is me' etc. All of that brings such weight into our hearts, minds and bodies. #release it. This weekend #release it all. #forgive those who have hurt you, #betrayed you, those who you have allowed to leave you scarred. Because it is our #life and our #choice who we #allow in it, and who we keep in it! Forgive #yourself first and foremost. Be #kind and #gentle with your beautiful self! Let go your #ego and #shed the pain you've been carrying around for #God only knows how long! It's a heavy load to bare… And you don't need to be the bellboy. #pray #letgoandletgod #divine #wisdom #advice #easter #joy #thehappyplanet #love #light #forgiveness

Ovog vikenda zelim svima da nadju radost i mir u sebi. Ovo mi se javilo jutros "grešiti je ljudski, oprostiti je božansko" i sada vidim zašto… Bez oproštaja nema radosti, bez oproštaja nema mira, ne istinskog. Ako nam mozak i dalje grdi tog nekog, srce i dalje oseća izdaju, ako nam usta i dalje prepričavaju tu priču 'jadna/an ja!' Itd. Sve to donosi toliki teret našem srcu, duši i telu… Pustite to. Ovog vikenda pustite sve to. 

Oprostite onima koji su vas povredili, izdali, one kojima ste dopustili da vam ostave ožiljke,… Jer Ovo je naš život i naša odluka koga pustamo u njega , a kome dopustimo da tu ostane. Oprostite prvo sebi. Budite dobri i nežni prema sebi. Pustite svoj ego i rasteretite se od boli koju nosite sam Bog zna koliko dugo! To je težak teret da nosite… A i ne morate vi da budete nosilac tog tereta.

Seems simple enough. 

Einstein said the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and hoping for a different result. 

Exactly. 

If you are dissatisfied, unhappy, wanting for something more, something different, a change, a development etc., ask yourself, 'what am I doing differently to achieve my new desire?' 

If you see that you have done the same thing over and over and trying to achieve a different result, well… let's not call upon Einstein, but… you get it! 

If we want a different result, we MUST try a different approach. 

Begin anew. Think about your desired outcome as already achieved. What are the steps you needed to take in order to achieve it? 

Write these down. 

Evaluate if needed and go out and do them. Make it happen! You can do it!

Even if you have tried many times, do not give up. Just find a new approach.

Limitless Love -

These days have brought all sorts of transformation my way! :) I am grateful, but sometimes, I am a little overwhelmed, honestly. Thinking it through does not do me any good, I find, at times like these. It seems much, much easier to just LET GO and do a very, very important thing:

GO BACK TO BASICS. 

 

Instead of trying to 'figure things out', 'understand 'why?' ' think about 'when?' or 'if' or whatever else might be going on in your mind, try and just say 'Flip it all!' and go back to basics. Basics? GRATITUDE. Forget all and just notice the things around you that you feel joy full about or are grateful for. Simple. 

Go back to waking up every day and saying THANK YOU.

 

Thank You for another day. Thank You for this morning. Thank You for my heart beating. Thank You for this sky. Thank You for the people in my life. Thank You for my health (or whatever you may have to be grateful for). Even one thing to be grateful for is enough to get the ball rolling. ONE THING. One single thing is enough! BEGIN NOW. Just say ‘thank You…’ fill in the blank.

 

Sit in silence if possible and just be grateful for the breath you have to breathe.

Simple.

 

Be grateful for every bite you consume, every drink you drink. Just be. Simple. 

Notice the little things and say THANK YOU.

 

That is all.

Simple.

Back to basics.

 

Count your blessings.

 

That's more than enough. 

 

Limitless Love

I feel the need to say a very loud and joy full : THANK YOU!!!

 

I feel so blessed. 

 

I have not been blogging recently because I have had many, many things going on… changes are a good thing, I like to think. 

 

People often get scared when change comes a-knockin'. It's like a friend coming unannounced …  knock knock, you ask 'who's there?", 'change', 'change' who?' and  the answer… ? 'change your entire life, make you feel like you are completely lost and then I might help you re-organize… I'll see' depends how Change is feeling on any given day. 

Sometimes she comes and is a friend, sometimes she comes and is a complete and utter b**** ! hahaha! True, true. (Pardon my French) :p

When she comes, the last thing you feel like is staying positive! How about believing that all will turn out well? "What? Nah! No belief, no way, nothing is going well, don't you know Change came and flipped it all ?! Hell-ooo!!! "

 

Eh, yes, she is a little rascal. 

 

When Change comes I feel the only thing to do is to let her in. Let her come in, let her rearrange the furniture, redesign your wardrobe, cut your hair, change your regime and annoy you or help you, whatever she is there to do. The thing is, she's here, whether you like it or not. I find the less destructive path is to go with it, invite her in, embrace her, ask her what she feels needs work and why, listen to her, trust her. She comes bearing gifts. You may not see them straight away, but she definitely has them hidden away somewhere… she'll give them to you once you calm down. 

Ride the wave. Let it take you wherever it will. The grass is always greener, eh? Trust her. Trust that the changes ARE bringing something better, clarity, focus, something needed. 

 

In the midst of the storm we cannot see much… but once it settles… have you noticed how beautiful and clear all suddenly is, how clear the water, how fresh the grass? Let her come… let her come and sweep over all the dusty bits and clean and clear your world. 

 

She can be a b****, but she sure knows how to separate the bull from the ****. 

Limitless Love, 

The Happy Planet
