Strong

Cristian Mihai

strength“Difficulties are meant to rouse, not discourage. The human spirit is to grow strong by conflict.” -William Ellery Channing

They say that you never know how strong you are until being strong is the only option you have. Some people like to put a lot of emphasis on being strong. They like to be perceived as strong, they like their strength to be acknowledged by others, never realizing that they’re just pretending to be strong, pretending to be tough.

There is a big difference between being strong and being tough. Between having the courage to pursue one’s dreams and isolating oneself emotionally from the rest of the world. Being strong is not about building walls, it’s about building bridges. It’s about taking that small island that is one self and connecting it with others. It’s about having a purpose, about having principles and abiding them no matter what.

The ‘LIVE’ Ones

Okay! So, you ever wondered why it’s been so tough on you? Why as a believer, it seems as though you’re battled against on every side? Why matters just keep arising every bit of the journey? Well, I’ve got a simple answer to that.

Kizo Daniels' Blog

Just going to do a little bit of inspirational and motivational today. No crazy revelation, no deep scripture insight (although I think there still is), but definitely will give you that “hmmm” moment.

Okay! So, you ever wondered why it’s been so tough on you? Why as a believer, it seems as though you’re battled against on every side? Why matters just keep arising every bit of the journey? Well, I’ve got a simple answer to that. You’re ALIVE! And no, I don’t mean being alive because you’re breathing in oxygen and exhaling carbon dioxide. I mean, you’re alive by reason of your life in Christ Jesus.

You have to understand that your being alive is the reason why you’re still facing all of these tribulations. Dead people don’t have issues, do they? They are just lying still-dead. No problems. But when there’s life, then it’s sure that you’ll still…

Dominating Success; The policy to gain ground!

“You know who you’re!”

WordKindle

“You see things; and you say, ‘Why?’ But I dream things that never were; and I say, ‘Why not?”
The thought-provoking quote from Gorge Bernard Shaw really hit my mind & made me think on. “You know who you’re!” & isn’t that enough to motivate you? Actually what happens with us is we forget to know ourselves ’cause aren’t we so strongly envious of others that we even unlearn to listen our own voice? Don’t try to be what you can’t be rather I’d say our consent must be to understand our true purpose in life; the real reason behind our existence! Redeem your true strength & invest your energy in amplifying it, I’m sure failure won’t even try to snatch your opportunity to be a successful again! By merely copying others, we can never be what we truly are & each of us knows that well but the only problem…

A Call to Leave the Ordinary

Vincent Egoro

Have you done the best you thought you are capable of doing? Don’t you think there is something still inside you; some untapped potential which if utilized will help you realize the life of your dreams?

Why be satisfied to go on day after day; month after month and year after year being living at the same level, expressing nothing new about you, doing the same old things and habits in the same old way you are used to simply because you are too scared to try out new ways, to test those new ideas that have been ringing in your mind?

For how long will you continue to be just an ordinary employee, just an ordinary woman, just an ordinary man, just an ordinary student, just an ordinary farmer, just an ordinary sales person, just an ordinary house wife, just an ordinary church goer?

My friend…

Felicity of Darkest Times!

darkness itself beholds a promise within to let that dawn arouse again!

WordKindle

Forget about fate & fortune but when it comes to bad phase of life, it just spill the beans about your true calibre. We value good times ’cause there are bad as without sunset we wouldn’t have appreciated sunrise, right? Life is indeed an endless chain of stress, pain & agony but boundless joy is always waiting out there for us & we often forget to pick it up. Behind every unpleasant challenge, there’s an untold glory so why do we freak out when we’ve got that potential to enlighten our own path? Life has embraced us with love & happiness so rather finding loopholes in it’s creativity, why don’t we go & gratify it for what we have an opportunity to live it? Its no wonder that we are the only potential creature that has got everything at their disposal, go out & see what the chances are! On…

Watching the thinker

Stephen Paul's Blog

Advaita (Nonduality, Oneness, One Love)'s photo.

The beginning of freedom is the realization that you are not the thinker. The moment you start watching the thinker, a higher level of consciousness becomes activated. You then begin to realize that there is a vast realm of intelligence beyond thought, that thought is only a tiny aspect of that intelligence. You also realize that all the things that truly matter – beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace – arise from beyond the mind. You begin to awaken.

~ Eckhart Tolle

10 Ways to Heal an Idol Mind

Whats Real

  1. Pray. A lot of people now a days have turned away from God, Jehovah, Allah, Elderheim. . .whichever your preferance. I have had my times where I couldn’t figure everything out on my own. I had no one to talk to. No one to turn to. It was almost depression, but I wasn’t in total beliefs that a higher power had everything I needed and much more. All I had to do was turn to him. So when I made that decision, I started praying, I started to seek. I was in touch with not only who I was at the moment, but where I wanted to be and where my life was going.
  2. Understand Your Self. This has something to do with knowing who you are. Your likes. Your dislikes. What your strong enough to tolerate and what you are not. Stop trying to control the things you just…

Though they are opposites, they would complete each other.

The Journal

Love.

It’s one of those things that looks so simple yet really hard to define. As far as I’ve observed, Love is the main component of Neruda’s poems. As humans, we cannot deny the fact that we all fall in love. And with this, we have so many ways to express this thing called “Love”, even though most of us choose not to show it. Out of all of his works, I’ve taken interest the poem “I do not love you…” The speaker talks about loving someone differently, how he prefers to love someone not because of her looks, but because of how she moves, how she talks and how he loves her because of the way they spend their time together. The poem is part of Pablo Neruda’s book titled “One Hundred Love Sonnets” which is a compilation of sonnets which share the same theme; Love.

Pablo-Neruda The man behind…
