The Journey of Life

The Journey of Life

Life is a chronicle: of the depths we have fallen into, the peaks we have climbed, and the detours we have taken on our journey. It's not always a straight path. We continue to work on our lives, while trying to remember that our true home is spiritual - the home of love that we never really leave and always resides within us.

Sharing our heartfelt stories with others - in the hopes of bringing more light into a sometimes dark world. 🌟

The Power of Perspective

The Power of Perspective

Looking back on your life, you can see the many detours you have taken. But these detours ultimately led you to where you are today.

It's not other people, external circumstances, or events from our personal past that cause us anger and resentment, but rather our thoughts, attitudes, and judgments towards them.

We cannot change the past, but we can heal our mind and heart in the present, release ourselves from the victim role, expand our choices in life, and choose peace over conflict and love over fear.

Following Your Heart

Following Your Heart

It's easy to follow the voice of the ego and live life on autopilot. The ego is constantly afraid, especially when it comes to making decisions. But when we quiet our minds and listen to our hearts for answers, they are always infused with love and connection. The inner peace we feel gives us the assurance that we are on the right path.

I've always been amazed by the ability of humans to recover from major challenges and move forward in life. Even from the toughest situations, we can emerge stronger. When I feel down, I remember people who have shown me this resilience as my teachers.

Love and Fear

Love and Fear

Love and fear are intertwined in our lives. We are all a work in progress. Fear stems from our ego, which is not our true identity. Egos are selfish and disconnected from our true source and from each other. When we feel our unity with our source, we also feel the unity with others, and this is reflected in our decisions.

Fear separates us from each other and from our source. To break free from this endless cycle of conflicting thoughts and feelings, we must transform fear into love. 💜

The impact of our fears

The impact of our fears

An anxious state of mind attracts further anxiety-filled experiences. Turn your gaze inwards.

Sometimes we look for ways to protect ourselves from unpleasant things. Even if some things don't seem to be part of our reality, they are part of life.️

Be careful not to be overwhelmed by your fears. Keep looking inwards to understand yourself better and to be able to deal with challenges. 💪

The Finality of Death and the Eternal Nature of the Soul

The Finality of Death and the Eternal Nature of the Soul

The end of life is a certainty for everyone. But it shouldn't be a terrifying vision that we push away with our fears and defense mechanisms. Our true potential is spiritual in nature; what is real in each of us is also eternal and cannot be extinguished.

If we accept all people, regardless of their behavior, as our teachers, we see the world through different eyes - and act accordingly.

Our bodies are just the houses we live in while we are on Earth. Our true identity is spiritual and eternal. The essence of our being is love. ❤️

Peace through forgiveness

Peace through forgiveness

Our inner peace is more important than anger and other emotions of the ego. It does not depend on external circumstances, but on our willingness to forgive. Forgiveness frees us from any self-centred entanglements.

We do not have to belong to the same religion to be spiritually connected to each other. Our differences can enrich our relationships and help us to understand other perspectives. An open heart allows love to enter through many doors. Forgiveness is the key to our inner peace. ⛩️🧘

The Power of Taking Responsibility for Your Actions

The Power of Love

The Power of Love

Love is limitless and has the power to lead us down the right path. We can learn to make the right decisions by finding stillness in our minds, opening our hearts and unbiasedly listening for answers.

We can liberate ourselves from partiality and ego by being open to equality and living fully in the present moment. Even the smallest act of love has the potential to create something great.

We see our shadows when walking away from the sun, we see our true self when we face it. Greet each moment with devotion, passion, and gratitude. The present is the only time we can consciously live in.

The Importance of Living in the Present Moment

The Importance of Living in the Present Moment

Hastening through life and chasing a future that we can never catch or regretting something in the past that is behind us and cannot be undone, leads us to lose contact with the present moment - the most important time of our lives.

Projecting our own fears onto others creates frightening images in our environment - and that becomes all we see. A calm and loving mind looks beyond the veil to the oneness of the world. With this mindset, we have a clearer view of the situation in front of us.

The Importance of Forgiveness

The Importance of Forgiveness

To achieve peace and joy, we must be aware of our ego. Forgiveness requires an honest examination of our thoughts and feelings, recognizing the destructiveness of negative judgments and emotions.

Instead of waiting for perfection, we can find peace and joy in imperfect situations. Viewing ourselves as "not good enough" hinders our growth in the present, unrelated to the past, and leaves us feeling limited and unfulfilled.

Love and Laughter Bring Love Back to Us

Love and Laughter Bring Love Back to Us

Loving and making people laugh automatically brings it back to us.

Laughing is a wonderful elixir that helps us heal ourselves.

  • Release negative emotions like resentment and anger.
  • Let go of expectations and allow things to flow. This opens new doors for us.
  • When we let go, we receive; when we give, we gain.

Instead of measuring or judging ourselves for what we have or have not done, remember: life is not about how much we give, but the love with which we give.

The Power of Giving and Letting Go

The Power of Giving and Letting Go

When we give from the heart it is without conditions or expectations. Truly giving means expecting nothing in return.

Holding onto grudges and anger casts a dark shadow on our mind and the world around us. But when we forgive and give love, the light shines through the darkness and the shadows disappear. Love is the most powerful healing force in the universe.

  • Recognize that holding onto feelings of guilt is fruitless.
  • Free yourself from those feelings and find inner peace.
  • Take responsibility. Practice forgiveness. Give love. We always have the choice to let go of our feelings of guilt.

Friendship

Friendship

Friendship is a relationship without needs, in which the interest in the well-being of the other is the same as the interest in one's own well-being. It is a state of mind in which there is no fear, no guilt, no attacks, and no feeling of vulnerability. In it, I can be who I truly am.

Unconditional love is exactly that: it is not based on conditions and is independent of the actions of others. There are some people we will never be able to satisfy, but we can still love them.

CURATOR'S NOTE

Jerry and Diane demonstrate the daily application of spiritual principles and practical spirituality. They inspire us to embrace and share our own stories of peaks and valleys that make up our journeys. Each day still provides challenges and circumstances that call to those parts of us that want to judge others or ourselves. Recognize when you’re lost and the choice you have to return to the path of unconditional love. By letting go of our judgments and grievances by practicing forgiveness, the path is easier, the direction clearer, and the destination of peace achievable.
