Be A Light

Quote

One of the most, if  not the most important questions posed to us is: what is your purpose in life? The answer should always be to bring light to others lives. Our purpose is greater than us as an individual; much more than gratifying superficial desires. I blog with the hope that my experiences and thoughts will inspire others whether it’s by evoking an emotion or provoking a new perspective. It could be as simple as a smile, a moment of your time or standing up for what’s right, one should always strive to be a light both personally as well as professionally.

Real Love

Quote

Love is an untamed force. When we try to control it, it destroys us. When we try to imprison it, it enslaves us. When we try to understand it, it leaves us feeling lost and confused.

After all, what is happiness? Love, they tell me. But love doesn’t bring and never has brought happiness. On the contrary, it’s a constant state of anxiety, a battlefield; it’s sleepless nights, asking ourselves all the time if we’re doing the right thing. Real love is composed of ecstasy and agony.

~ Paulo Coelho

Growth

Quote

Be and accept where you are now. Do not allow expectations to get in the way of your growth, and compare your current level of awareness to the experiences of others. Trust me, when you are ready to proceed further, intuitive signs and the right people will come into your life to help guide you, especially when you are willing to grow.

The Purpose of Education

Quote

The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and critically. Intelligence plus character- that is the goal of true education.

Live Out Loud

Quote

“You’ll learn, as you get older, that rules are made to be broken. Be bold enough to live life on your terms, and never, ever apologize for it. Go against the grain, refuse to conform, take the road less traveled instead of the well-beaten path. Laugh in the face of adversity, and leap before you look. Dance as though EVERYBODY is watching. March to the beat of your own drummer. And stubbornly refuse to fit in.”

Spirituality

Quote

“We must stop confusing Religion and Spirituality. Religion is a set of rules, regulations and rituals created by human which were supposed to help people spiritually. Due to human imperfection Religion has become corrupt, political, divisive and a tool for power struggle. Spirituality is not theology or ideology. It is simply a way of life, pure and original as given by the Most High. Spirituality is a network linking us to the Most High, the universe and each other.”
