Always Moving

Life is always moving,

Always moving on

Were here in this moment;

As the next one just comes

 

Each one fleeting,

Each one unknown

 

We may try hard to grasp it

Yet we cannot;

Just as this moment comes,

In the next it is gone

 

Life is only here;

There is nothing to hold on

 

Just like water;

It is always moving,

We are always moving,

Always moving on 💕

~ M. L Adams

It does not depend

It does not depend on another thing,

Whether to feel good, to feel bad,

Or to be as love

 

It does not depend on another being,

Whether to forgive or not;

It is a choice that lives solely in your heart

 

This is your freedom,

This is your choice;

To decide always how you will respond ♡

~ M.L Adams

 

The Garden Path

garden-path

I am writing this as both an expression of being led in this way and a warning against it.

Always trust your own intuition above all else, there are unfortunately many out there who will lead you along a path to nowhere for their own benefit. With my experience and if they had been in integrity it would have sounded more like this;

‘I invite you to follow my way, which is in fact not a way but I will pretend it is a way, keep changing it and telling you that you’ve got it wrong until you figure out there isn’t one.

Please join me, it will be fun!’;)

Honesty and integrity are so important and can be harmful when not put in place. Please always above all be true to yourself and aware of others truths ♡

Great mentors and teachers ❤️

‘Better than a thousand days of study is one day with a great teacher.’ ~ Japanese Proverb

This post is dedicated to the loving memory of Sigung Richard Bustillo who passed away peacefully in the early hours of this morning

I’ve been fortunate enough in my life to have been blessed with some really great teachers, ones who’ve not only taught me how to improve my external world but often more importantly my inner world.

I treasure every single teacher and mentor I have and have ever had because I recognise the value that they bring to my life. In how they have helped me see things differently and achieve things I may never have otherwise achieved

Without great teachers we can never grow to become the person we really want to be and understand things we may have never otherwise understood.

The value of great teachers can really be underestimated and all of us can benefit from a great teacher because we are always learning.

As the Japanese proverb states even just one day spent with a great teacher can be immensely powerful.

I’d like to dedicate this post to loving memory of one great teacher, Sigung Richard Bustillo a teacher who I spent a truly valuable weekend training with last year.

Richard Bustillo was a student and personal friend of Bruce Lee and also a teacher of Bruce Lee’s own art of Jeet Kune Do.

To be able to train with Richard Bustillo last year was a true gift and a time I will never forget; his spirit, energy and teachings inspired me greatly. I will always remember those treasured days in 2016 and I’m forever grateful for the opportunity to be taught by him.

RIP Richard Bustillo ❤️

The lesson of value

Why is it so often only when we lose something that we appreciate it’s real value, How can we begin to value things more before this point?

In my own experience I have come to realise how important some things are only when it was too late

Like life was somehow teaching me, here, look at what you already have;

Whether that be with money, friendships, support or even states of being,

And more than anything life teaches me how important gratitude is,
Perhaps this is why we need this duality in life, for without it how could we possibly know or appreciate those good things.

Additionally, this is why gratitude is so important, not only important but essential. In consistently practicing gratitude, we recognise the value here and now. Then not always needing the comparison.

Ultimately however it does come down to our choice of focus. We can see what we have or perceive what we don’t have and as part of nature what we consistently give energy to will increase.

Start with value;
Recognise all you are, all you already are, have done and are doing.

As beings of nature we naturally evolve. In keeping our focus on what we’re grateful for as well where we’re heading, then all will evolve in the right direction.

Most often where we are right now, we already have more than enough, and we always are of infinite value.

To truly value something
Is to be with it completely,
Giving every effort in that moment

With that;

The only answer,
Here and now
Can always be gratitude 💗

What matters

It’s never about the stuff
How others may think or judge
What matters is what’s in our heart
In how our actions show who we are
Not in who’s right or who’s wrong,
But in having love and gratitude,
No matter what 💗

~ M. L Adams

Nothing stays the same

Remember, nothing stays the same
That it’s a good thing,
We always evolve,
Change and grow
We always develop,
Learn and become
Take each thing as a lesson or a blessing;
Forever keep growing ❤
~ M. L Adams

Where you go from here

We can choose in any moment
To hold on or let go,
To give or to take;
Or to allow in defeat

We can choose in any moment,
Which way we want to go
In how to turn something around,
In what to say and what to sow

It is these choices now,
That give the power that we have
The way to shape our life from here,
A way to always come back

So no matter what, when or where,
You always have a choice in your hands,
Do you focus and move forward,
Or give in and fall back?

~ M.L Adams

New Year Possibilities and Beginnings

beginning

Today has been an amazing new years day, looking forward to new goals and beginnings whilst continuing on projects over from last year too. I always love new year because of the energy everyone has with the potential of what we can be and become.

It brings alive the field of possibility in knowing that we can change habits we no longer need and become all we want to be, it’s often just maintaining this energy that can be the challenge.

That’s why I believe its so important to have this focus of what is possible consistently, to always be searching for new ideas and opportunities. To treat every day as if it is a new beginning just as we do at this time,  because really it is. Everyday and every moment is a new beginning and anything is possible when our view expands enough to see all that is available to us.

The only thing that ever limits us is ourselves and our view of what is possible for us to do and when we focus daily on something that we may not have perceived possible, who knows what opportunities will come our way. I was a little disappointed at the end of 2014 that I had not achieved all I would like to have done but at the same time I know I have learnt so much. For all that is important as part of my journey and I achieved and experienced things that I never could have planned.

Most importantly from 2014 I learnt;

  • To always, always trust my intuition
  • The value of true friendship
  • The art of allowing
  • The beauty of acceptance
  • New fields of possibility I never knew
  • That any perceived obstacle can always be transformed in to an opportunity
  • The importance of expressing my truth and passion even more

New learning as well as achievements are all part of our journey of growth and the beauty in life, we never can fully plan everything. We can however be sure that when we go with the flow towards our goals we will be heading in the right direction.

‘The Alchemist’ by Paulo Coelho is a perfect example of this, and in the end it is always about realising our potential and surprising ourselves with possibilities we never knew we could find.

I’m determined even more this year to be open to all new possibilities and opportunities whilst on the journey to achieving my goals which is why this year pubic speaking and any opportunities in this area will be a big part of my goal. Please watch this space for video uploads 🙂   I wish you all the best success and lots of wonderful opportunities on your journey this year too. Happy New Year to you 🙂 Lets make this year amazing.

There is no end, only beginnings,

Every moment, is a new beginning

The only truth

I’ll love you no matter what you do,
It feels somehow I’m a part of you
That I can never let go of you
No matter how I try, its no use

At one point I thought I hated you,
So then I went and hurt you too
Even through all this I cant let go of you
I don’t know why, I just know its true

Your always there; I’ll always care for you
No matter where you are or what you do
There’s a part of me always there for you,
I know this to be the only truth

~ M. L. Adams

I wrote this over a year ago when I’d been hurt quiet badly from lies. The experience taught me many things, Initially it was a reminder of how hurtful lies can be but far more than that was how powerful love can be to overcome it.

Today has been a day in redefining this for me. I’m not certain if it’s right
or condemning lies in anyway, as many of us know how hurtful they can be but the causes can be far deeper than we know. Even though someone lies or even continues to lie, that may mean they need our love even more. Why does anyone lie after all? ❤
