On love, bliss, vulnerability, and downfalls. Beautiful words from a beautiful friend:
My dearest Evelyn,
How beautiful it is to be alive and how beautiful it is to have met you; and if our conversation, for one reason or another, serves you as the source of inspiration or light – well, I couldn’t be more grateful to You and the Universe.
Aching heart, turmoil, chaos – gosh, they are our companions, inevitable companions, aren’t they? I have been going through a lot myself this past week. …
But then I just stopped and listened: life is trying to move me in another direction. What we perceive as a downfall is actually a lesson, a class – we have to become still and understand what it is teaching us. My lesson is to remember why I came here to Bali in the first place and to make choices aligned with my vision…
Embrace whatever comes and remember that when a single part of you is broken, this is no reason to see everything as broken (Mark Nepo). I am sending waves of love to you right now; I am sending so much love that the air currents between Bali and Nepal are starting to vibrate and flamingos are awakening from their sleep in Africa; I am sending so much love just because it is the very thing I need myself…. Love.
Travel with an open heart.
Listen to your heart – it’s so beautiful (!) – be wholesome – and follow your bliss.
Don’t let anyone anywhere ever deter you from connecting to your Highest Potential. To your Bliss.
And I once again remind us both that vulnerability, tears, an aching heart – these are not signs of weakness! They are courage. To be brave. To be bold. To feel, love and live boldly.
Living fearlessly requires courage.
A lot of people – out of fear – will try to stop us and reflect their own fears upon us, holding up mirrors and telling us: look how small you are, how fearful you, how insignificant you are…
Well, no thank you.
I know for sure – and I know it to my marrow – that Evelyn is the whole universe. I know that I am the whole universe.
Well, I know that I am a wave and the universe is the ocean. I am doing what the whole universe is doing at the same time (Alan Watts)…
My heart is hurt, still, but I desire nothing more than to Live and Love… Love a man and Love the world… Love myself and Love You… Love my words and Love my Human Existence…
Dear Evelyn, continue travelling, embrace it, yes, if you don’t travel – who will? Your soul needs it. You are travelling within as much as you travelling in a physical dimension.
Meditate. Make sure you become still. Sit there with a cup of tea. Be. And then continue.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to write this message to you
