Corregidor Island, Philippines – by David Wendel Robinson
Life is meant to be embraced completely and boldly. Let not the joy of life pass you by. At every opportunity embrace love and laughter. Share with and care for others without expectation. Sing, Dance, do anything that lifts your spirit and excites your soul.
Do it all with a great passion that fills the heavens with the joy of your expression.
To change, you must first believe passionately in the change you want.
Then you must love the change you wish for and nurture it.
Finally take it into your heart and soul and know that it is ever evolving just as you are.
Some people will try to convince you that they have control. The truth is they do not, and it is their own fear and weakness that makes them try to control others. Remember that only one person is responsible for your life. “YOU” Only you can decide the path your life takes. Never be afraid to walk away from that which hurts you or holds you back from your true happiness. Your first obligation is to yourself and your second to those you love. Remember that you can never love someone else, more than you love yourself. Loving yourself is your spiritual obligation for it is the source of all love that you share. You have no obligation to those who deliberately cause you pain. Decide your moment and walk away. Even if there are practical obligations, they can be met without pain and suffering to you.
If you find someone who truly loves you without conditions, embrace them without doubt or fear. Trust in what your heart tells you and let no one define for you what you should feel or adhere to societal limitations on what love should be. Love, completely, without fear and with total commitment and passion. Remember that true love will never hold you back from your dreams, demand your attention or keep you from loving others. But true love will embrace and surround you with a passion and joy for life, that will sustain you both for all time and beyond. True love begins with the soul and expresses the light and love of God within you. You are a child of the universe, a child of Divine Mother-Father creator of all that is. It is your essence and nature to love and be loved. Settle for nothing less.
Never let someone else impose their limitations on you or set expectations that you owe them. It is not only good to give, but important you also receive. Life must be lived in balance. That is the way of all creation and God’s will. The only thing you owe to anyone else is unconditional love and compassion because you receive this already in abundance from your Creator.
