Dare to believe, but in what I ask?
Reality seems so much grounded and yet,
Exciting is the thought of the fulfilment of my dreams.
And what will they think of me, when I share…
Maybe they’ll cheer me on. Or just maybe laugh hysterically.
So what do I do? Do they even come true? Are they even real?
DREAMS! I meant”
I remember laying down on the lash green grass with my mate, gazing at the baby blue sunny sky and engrossed in wishful thinking. How we bubbled about how amazing it could be to live in a grande house and have all the money in the world. Oh we saw bubbly hearts float around us when we thought about prince charming. We built castles in the air like we were being paid. Little did we know that our imaginations and desires had power.
Deep down inside we somehow knew that they were just wishes. I mean, that is what we heard the adults say along with mantras like ‘life us hard’, ‘be realistic’, ‘go to school work hard and get a job’. There was no room for dreaming.
But it was not our wish to think that way or our fault for that matter. Neither was it the fault of those to whom we
picked up those limiting thoughts from. We were programmed that way because they were programmed that way and they passed it onto the next generation. That dreams just remained that.
However, that is not true. Not even close. Dreams are real and true as day and night. They are the very essence of our being. They have power in them. They shape our life. They moves us forward. They keep us motivated, inspired and excited for a new tommorrow. A better tommorrow for that matter. They keep us connected to God.
Take a good look around you. How many things can you see that was someone else’s dream that you are now using or admirring? We are using their dream. Our life is better because they activated their
dreams. Heck, some even fought and died to see the actualization of their dreams. Nelson Mandela being an exceptional example. So how real is our reality if it keeps changing according to our wants and needs? It changes because we keep dreaming of a better life. We can’t help but dream. And am not reffering to the closing your eyes at night kind of dreaming. I am talking about that which you see when you look at life through your minds eye or better yet your imagination.
Someone once said ‘our dreams are valid.’ And they are as long as you are alive. Does how accomplished and successful she is be a living proof enough that she is right? The difference might be she was not satisfied to leave her dreams hanging in between reality and the invincible realm. She either gave it her all to get where she is now. Maybe she knew to achieve her dreams would mean to propel the human race forward. I bet she has. Someone might have been inspired by her to not just dream but to live those dreams. To the maximum. All or nothing.
Some say dreaming is for kids or dreamers like you and I. So what? I dream and proud of it but what sets you and me apart from dreamers is the burning desire to achieve, unwavering faith and constant successful action. That makes a whole lot of difference. Mark 9:23 “Everything is possible for the person who believes.” If those words does not make you jump and make your dreams a reality then I don’t know what will.
Magnificence in your,
Spiritual world AKA DREAM!
With lots of love :-)
What happened to being a better person rather than being a better person than so and so?
What happened to being successful rather than being more successful than the other?
What happened to enjoying the little achievements that lead to the big one rather than starting something and expecting a big boom immediately?
What happened that everything has to be a competitiom always? Does everything in life have to be a race? Are we in so much rush that we do not build strong, well rooted foundations? Strong furious challenges come and we uprooted because we did not take the time to build appropriate foundations. Microwave generation they call us. At first I was like thats so not true until I realised I was hooked on it too. Hooked in the ‘get things done fast’ lane. In the process taking shortcuts that lead to results that do not last.
Don’t we want success that lasts? Don’t we want love that lasts? Don’t we all want love that lasts? Don’t we want happiness and joy that lasts? Don’t we want money that lasts? Then why are we in a rush and in the process taking the short courses that won’t last because we are so focused on being better than the other.
I know not one person who does not want to be a better person and have a better amazing life.
Life does not have to be a competition. We compete mainly because we think there isn’t enough for everyone. But that is not true. The fact that their is enough sun and air for every human, animals and plants should be proof enough. Our create is more than abundant and generous while at it too. He is just waiting for us to ask for what we want, believe and He delivers. Always.
Ever woken up late for an appointment or for work or for an interview? The race that would happen right after getting out of bed could knock someone out cold if you found them on your way. While rushing, you forget to give thanks for another day, you do not take note of the beautiful sunrise, you do not even take time to ask how your loved ones sleep. Little things but they mean so much. That is what you miss and much more when racing to get to your goal.
Take your sweet time. Know what you want. Pray for guidance. Analyse and plan the way forward. Take action making sure you do not take shortcuts.
Or maybe my thinking is just twisted. Do tell me why I should compete. And let me relearn what I have learnt if it would push me forward. Otherwise am in no rush. But don’t get me wrong I am doing something to fulfill my desires so help me God.
With lots of love :-)
Love does not exist huh?
Well, God is love and love is God. So if you believe in Him, whatever the religion/spirituality, you do believe in love. God is omnipresent-everywhere. So love is everywhere.
You are made in the image and likeness of God. Then you are love.
So why haven’t met up with love? Because you have a limited scope of what love really is and you are looking for it externally yet it has always been with you. Inside. You are a source of love. You are love. You have been surrounded by love all your life.
Fill yourself up with love before you go out loving another. Then you will have so much more to give.
With lots of love :-)
Are you worth your career? Are you worth your status quo? Are you worth your car? Are you worth your home? Are you worth your financial status? Are you worth your education? Are you worth your past? Are you worth your future? What are you worth?
I have been going through a major transition in my life and the past nine months have not been close to smooth. I have had to change almost everything that I view in this life. And as we all now, change is not always welcome. So it has been like a squabble between me and ,well, me. In the process I had to define out who I really am, my capabilities and why I really exist. Looking through my past I was not happy of what I had turned out to think of myself and had become. I had limited myself to what society dictates of what it really means to live and while at it I picked up a lot of limiting beliefs.
I used to think that getting education will make me a worthy person but it has not. I used to think that having many friends would make me a worthy person but it has not. I used to think that doing something better than another individual would make me a worthy person but it has not. I thought having that special person would make me a worthy person but it has not. I used to think up until recently that a better financial status would make me a worthy person but if I don’t find myself worthy NOW chances are that that would not make me feel worthy. So what would really make me worthy?
It just dawned on me that I am worthy now! Just the way I am right now, I am worhty. I don’t need anything or anyone to make me feel and be worthy. God does not see all that other stuff. He sees me for who I am. I don’ t need any other added thing for Him to see my worth. I am perfectly worthy just the way I am. And if He sees that in me who am I not to believe that? I am defined by Him and only Him. I am worthy.
If I was going through all that it surely means am not the only one in the world that is going through that. And if it has surely changed the way I see myself it can surely change another. Mahatma Gandhi said ‘Be the change you wish to see in the world’. And surely the world will change with you. Imagine how the world would be if we found our true selves worthy. Utopia right? But I believe anything is possible.
Young or old, you are worthy.
Poor or rich, you are worthy.
Educated or not, you are worthy.
You are worthy!
Does your family and friends determine your worth? Does your career determine your worth? Does your money determine your worth? Does your clothe determine your worth?
What are you REALLY worth?
With lots of love :-)
It has taken an assertive will, determination, vision, burning desire, love, knowledge, belief, faith, hope, love, dreams….to make it through a whole year. A year filled with not only challenges and sorrows but also triumph and happiness. It is not only by my strength that I have made it this far but it is by the full strength and unconditional love of my Almighty Father.

I am who I am because of who He is!
I am love because He is love!
I am good because He is good!
I am abundant because He is abundant!
I am creative because He is creative!
I am successful because he is successful!
I live because He lives, oh Father!
I live for you; an expression of the beauty of Your mind!
By knowing You I have known me in a deeper sense.
I give You all the praise and gratitude for giving me another year.

All along I have been drifting around telling others -myself included- to think big, not really consciously knowing what thinking big really means. Today it dawned on me.
Thinking big means thinking beyond your current life situations. Thinking beyond your current health status. Beyond your current financial status. Beyond your current love status…
Its breaking the barriers of your limited mind and visualising and believing in your dreams and ideals. So think big. No one is stopping you but you. Thinking big is a choice. Its upto you. So choose.
You are deserving of all that you wish for and desire. The fact that you are alive shows you deserve them. Choose your hearts desires. Choose to live! Be free!
With lots of love :-)
Change. Just the mention of the verb gives me the creeps and we all now why. Being human, I tend to be resistant to change whether its for the better or otherwise. But change is inevitable. Change most of the time means growth. That being said you wonder why we still are resistant. Maybe cos we are too comfy where we are in life. It certainly feels good and we don’t want to change that (that word again). Or simply put we are afraid to move ahead. But what you didn’t know is that everything is in motion. If you are not moving forward its just logic that you are disintergrating.
But there is more to change that meets the eye. It all starts with the mind. Our mind constitutes the conscious mind and the subconscious. The conscious mind governs what we think and reasoning. The subconscious mind, unlike the conscious mind, accepts any idea/ concept that is pressed on it. The subconscious in turn brings into reality whatever you have been thinking all along through the conscious mind.
The subconscious mind is quite beautiful because it acts like a software programme. It contains all the beliefs that have been repeated over and over till it became a habit. So you may decide to change something about your life through your conscious mind but the subconscious mind is telling another story. If you want to change something about your life, start by reprogramming your subconscious mind by repetition of positive affirmations. Do it over and over till it becomes.
On that note, since I mainly knit scarves, I challenged myself to knit an afghan. To be honest I did not. Not because I was scared I.would fail or it would take up more time than usual (my usual excuses) but because the afghan pattern was un rice stitch and I was using acyrlic yarn and ends up cutling up :-( But that was not in vain, I ended up knit poached. That right there is change however small.
