the passenger seat (call me crazy)

Creeping along the freeway. Major traffic. Pouring rain. Windshield wipers waving. Taillights glowing. Practically at a standstill here on the 405, I'm surprisingly not the least bit frustrated. I only feel united with my fellow human beings as we look ahead of us & gradually make our way through the storm.

stoppin' to smell the roses;
making prayers out of dandelions

the wind whistles through my hair

higher self // the answer lies within

you alone
have sent me here

you alone
know my purpose

you alone
know the path

oh great Wisdom,
guide me through this life

"if you want it, say it loud"

from this moment on, I intend to keep flowing through the present, following where & how my intuition leads me. no more overthinking:

just listening to the whispers of my soul & being here

an uncommon, saturday-evening-sight

as the sun sets over a sparkling, crystal-clear ocean & sinks into distant, violet clouds, the birds make their way home. I have never seen so many at one time...hundreds & hundreds of birds. and they keep flying...farther & farther from view until what have now become tiny specks seem to disappear altogether.

from the "left" portion of the sky, more and more birds appear & continue flying in the same direction. I start to find that this pattern is repeating itself as endless amounts of birds keep on appearing...a never-ending cycle.

though each bird may be unique & individual in comparison to all the others, together they make ONE FLOCK. and though all fly at their own paces & in their own ways (some more gracefully than others), every single bird is journeying toward the same destination; in time, each one of them will ultimately disappear into that brilliant, setting sun.

what i've learned

If you want something, don't say "I want." Say, "I'll have."
If you want to be happy, don't say "I wish." Say, "I'll be."

If you want to change, stop talking about it.

Make a decision and do it.

But first, make sure it's what you--not society or the opinion of others--truly want & know is best for you.
