The way

I found on this way
All I seek is here to stay
It’s all within me; here inside
Yet I was seeking it outside

All security, freedom and fun
I contain right here where I am,
When I see it in others, I see it in me
When I inspire others, they inspire me

This is a sure thing I know it’s true
I know as well as knowing can do
This true way lifts higher than before,
This place I seek to show in everyway

All I do from here on in;
Will be from this place of love
The way where no limits exist,
The way where all beautiful souls co-exist

Believe in you

butterfly

This last week has been a really tough one for me, I’ve had to make a decision that would potentially change the course of my whole life. Hence a lot of poetry about decisions :). The whole process has brought up a lot of anxiety, this mainly I believe because I’ve had to spend all this time contemplating the future rather than living in the now,(as I prefer to do). Unfortunately at some times we can not be totally in the now and it is necessary to plan for the future.

I have had to face a decision on whether to let go of all I had gained in the last year and 4 months. Those of you who have read my post ‘ One Little Moment , One Transformational Year’ may have picked up on how meaningful this time was for me. Essentially it has been so meaningful that nothing in me wanted to give it up, other than fear of what the future may hold and those niggling doubts of whether I can actually make my dream work.

However, much stronger than this doubt and fear has been this inner driving force that I feel I now have, something that I had lacked for several years previous. This driving force is one that really comes from the heart and one that I’m having to learn to trust in completely because I know that  from this space life is far more beautiful and flows in a way that is at times difficult to describe, life in this way is on a far better or higher level than any time when we are living from should’s , external expectations or fear.

As Steve Jobs said; ‘It’s as though our hearts somehow already know what we want to become.’

Living from the heart somehow overshadows the fears or doubts in our life and brings with it only passion, realisation, beauty  and truth even in the most difficult moments. This is something that I can not let go of now I have found it and so I will follow my heart and passion in hope to inspire others to find and do the same. Whatever the future holds we can not know, all we can do is make the best causes in now and learn to trust in the truth of our hearts.

Trusting completely in myself I believe is a key part of my journey and it has made me realise too that there maybe many of us who struggle to follow our true passion and live from our hearts, because perhaps the external circumstances at the time do not support this decision. Looking at many people who have had to make such decisions in their lives, in their circumstances it is often just as difficult. They have sometimes risked losing everything for the sake of following their heart and dreams, The Rocky Story is one that immediately comes to mind and there are many more of them.

When we make a daring decision to follow our heart and dreams we can sometimes find that those we hoped or thought may support us don’t or they take some time to come round to it, I have seen this happen for myself and to friends, some of whom then become discouraged because of this negativity or doubt. I don’t believe our friends and family or others try to mean harm by this, I think it’s more that it brings up their own fears and doubts of what they could do but aren’t doing or haven’t done, on the plus side, the opposite can also happen where we can then inspire them to do this too. What Marianne Williams said in ‘Our Deepest Fear’ that It is our light that most frightens us.’ I know now to be so true, but fear doesn’t have to stop us in any decision or circumstance, unless we choose to allow it to.

Given this, I choose to follow my heart with every step and to focus on inspiring others to do the same whilst also focusing on those who do so already and who encourage me to do the same. So I’m  taking this leap of faith and trusting in my heart completely and after recognising the need for belief and support when making this type of decision I’d like to put a suggestion out there;

To all those who follow their heart or are looking to make that step,  if you are ever struggling give me a shout and I’ll be an ear to listen to you and to help you rekindle that belief in you just as others have done for me over the last year and much more so recently. On a larger scale as many of us on here are of the same mind-set of following our hearts and dreams, why not have a WP belief network where we can all encourage each other even more than we do already. Who knows what amazing things we can achieve when we all support and encourage each other in this way?

My main message from this experience for anyone reading this would be;

Never give up on your dreams,

No matter how difficult it may seem,

It doesn’t matter if  others don’t believe in you

Believe in you and your truth;

Then you are sure to find others who will do too

It’s all a gift

It’s all a gift;
The good and bad,
The light and the dark
The trials and the struggles,
The victories and the joyful moments

It’s all a gift,
When you see it as this,
You’ll always make the most of it

Find the joy within each,
Each struggle will then have a victory
Each difficulty will have joy to seek
Each trial will have a winning end
When you seek the gift in everything

Lost

When life is lost and you can’t decide,

To find a way you must seek inside
This is what I’ve found on this journey of seeking,

That the one way to go, is that which gives you most feeling
The one that excites you, that wakes you and shakes you

That may bring fear, yet it’s the one that feels most clear,
It’s the one that brings a light in you, inside of you to enliven you

To be seeking too long is to become lost further,
Which to follow; the well worn path,
Or one not taken by many another

The answers only seem to lie within, As only you know the answers your seeking

To not follow on this path is to never know; what you could have been, if you had never let go

~ M.L.Adams

The Unseen

All that’s taught beneath our sight,
All that’s true and yet unseen,
Is there to guide us and to teach
Trust in the truth of this world

 It’s always there to guide you well
At anytime you may need help;
Were never ever all alone
We are all connected beyond all known

This is the truth that’s of our world
That’s there to guide us all so well
All we have to do is listen,
In anytime we may need help

This is the truth of the unseen
The truth of life that we do not see
Protecting always with deep love and care
The truth of life that’s always there

Having faith in this truth always,
Will always guide you well,
Showing you the ways to go
Ways that only you know;
From the deepest depths of your soul

~ M.L.Adams

Believing in this part of ourselves, in our intuition, can be difficult when there is so much around us to tell us otherwise, or to tell us to listen to that which we see not that which we do not; that which exist within our hearts.

Learning to do this more I believe is itself a journey, one that we can be on until we trust in this part of ourselves completely without question.

This journey is one I’m on right now and I’m learning to trust in it more and more,  however scary at first it may be.
Im finding that there are many people who are also following this path and that this part of ourselves seems to already know what is right for our own life journey. Trust in the truth within 🙂
