I just love the movie "Erin Brockovich"... it is soooo inspiring .. just to go out and do it!! Julia Roberts is just magnificent in this movie! Its just totally what I needed to end my day..
I am also reading a wonderfully inspiring book.. from an author I completely admire, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer.. Change Your Thoughts Change Your Life! Living the Wisdom of the Tao. Dr. Dyer explores and lives out the Tao Te Ching, referred to as the Tao for short, a wonderful book of wisdom written by a Chinese author Lao-tzu. He goes through this interesting book verse by verse, discusses it, and also gives you tips (Do the Tao Now) that he has derived from each individual verse. It's amazing.. like the Bible, of which I hold very dear, written so many years ago.. its contents and inspiration gives us tips even for today in 2009!!
Anyway, I am reading tonight the 6th Verse.. Living Creatively
The part of the verse I like the best is...
"The gateway to the mysterious female is called the root of all creation!" Wow, does that say it all or what!!! What about "Words may change, but be assured that the feminine energy can and will bring you to your own perfection. "
The book goes on to say "Whatever you feel within you as your calling ... whatever makes you feel alive-- know in your heart that this excitement is all the evidence you need to have your inner passion become reality!" I just love that!!
EVEN MORE POWERFUL - "Whatever you feel within you as your calling -- whatever makes you FEEL ALIVE -- know in your heart this excitement is all the evidence you need to have your inner passion become reality."
"Be creative -- in your though
ts, in your feelings, and in all of your actions. Apply your own uniqueness to everything you undertake. "
"Whatever you feel complelled to do -- be it write music, design software, do floral arrangements, clean teeth, or drive a taxi -- do it with your unique flair. Being creative means trusting your inner calling, ignoring criticism or judgement, and releasing resistance to your natural talents."
So with all of this in mind... there should be absolutely no reason for any of not to pursue a dream with drive and determination. We have so many opportunities to take advantage of and myself included sometimes get discouraged or feel defeated when we stumble upon a road block. We should take these "road blocks" in stride and learn from them ... for I believe that it just puts us in a different direction or route that will just make us better when we get there.
I always try to turn things no matter what, around and look at it in a total positive light.. because there is truly always a "bright side" to things... Think and meditate on the positive because God will carry us through.. Enjoy the day!!! Aloha

soul - to quench the deep thurst of my desire..."
"I love the solitude of my space. I can be whole here and delve deeper into my creativity. I hate being trapped in a world of shallowness and sadness. Each moment I create I come closer to completeness... " -- Artfulmama --
