“We Can Believe in the Truth of Our Hearts”
“There is not one person who has all the answers.
There is not one way to find bliss and satisfaction.
There is not one way to experience life.
What is right for one may be different for you.
What works for one, certainly may not work the same for you.
It’s your job to look inside.
It’s your job to understand yourself.
It’s your job to live the way that’s right for you.
And it’s your job to believe that you have the power to.” (Uplifted Vibrations)
“A soul mate is an ongoing connection with another individual that the soul picks up again in various times and places over lifetimes. We are attracted to another person at a soul level not because that person is our unique complement, but because by being with that individual, we are somehow provided with an impetus to become whole ourselves.” (Edgar Cayce)
“But if there is anything our free will should teach us, it is that we can control who we choose to be; we can control who we are, at least to some extent. So maybe we should ascribe to that perspective that we do not find ourselves, but create ourselves. Maybe we should stop looking for ourselves and simply choose to be whoever we choose to be. And then have the courage to say that who we are is our choice.” (Thought Catalog, ‘Stop Looking for Yourself’)
#2. Our hearts over our heads.
We’re submersed in a culture that tells us to be strong, independent people who don’t need anyone else’s approval, acceptance, or bank account. The tides have shifted to inform us that wanting to be loved is a symptom of being desperate, that fighting for the right to love isn’t as important as moving on. We’re supposed to take a baseball bat to their car; we can never ask them to stay. And yet, we’ve all but forgotten how to listen to our hearts. We can give people second chances, third chances, fourth chances. We can send the first text; we can truly believe that no one meant to hurt us. We can call them because we need to hear their voice, even if they are indifferent to ours. We can believe in the truth of our hearts.” (“10 Things We Should Never Stop Believing In” by Cheryl Hurst, Thought Catalog, 12.20.13)
“Our behavior is a function of our decisions, not our conditions.” (Stephen R. Covey)
