Fly

I have come to accept the feeling of not knowing where I am going. And I have trained myself to love it. Because it is only when I'm suspended in mid-air with no landing in sight, we force are WINGS to unravel and alas begin our FLIGHT. And as we fly, we still may not know where we are going to. But the miracle is in the unfolding of our wings. You may not know where you are going, but you know that so long as you spread your wings, the winds will carry you. -C. JoyBell C.

Kiss Of Life

There must have been an angel by my side
Something heavenly led me to you
Look at the sky
It's the color of love
There must have been an angel by my side
Something heavenly came down from above
He led me to you
He led me to you
He built a bridge to your heart
All the way
How many tons of love inside
I can't say

When I was led to you
I knew you were the one for me
I swear the whole world could feel my heartbeat
When I lay eyes on you
Ay ay ay
You wrapped me up in
The color of love

You gave me the kiss of life
Kiss of Life
You gave me the kiss that's like
The kiss of life

Wasn't it clear from the start
Look the sky is full of love
Yeah the sky is full of love
He built a bridge to your heart
All the way
How many tons of love inside
I can't say

You gave me the kiss of life
Kiss of Life
You gave me the kiss that's like
The kiss of life

You gave me the kiss of life
Kiss of Life
You gave me the kiss that's like
The kiss of life

You gave me the kiss of life
Kiss of Life
You gave me the kiss that's like
The kiss of life

You wrapped me up in the color of love
Must have been an angel come down from above
Giving me love yeah
Giving me love yeah

You gave me the kiss of life
Kiss of Life
You gave me the kiss of life
The kiss of life

Touched By An Angel

We, unaccustomed to courage
exiles from delight
live coiled in shells of loneliness
until love leaves its high holy temple
and comes into our sight
to liberate us into life.

Love arrives
and in its train come ecstasies
old memories of pleasure
ancient histories of pain.
Yet if we are bold,
love strikes away the chains of fear
from our souls.

We are weaned from our timidity
In the flush of love's light
we dare be brave
And suddenly we see
that love costs all we are
and will ever be.
Yet it is only love
which sets us free.

This life is for Freedom

Beingness is not an achievement. 
You need not do, undo or change anything in order to be.
The true Being is inscrutable and beyond Knowledge. 
It cannot be found in the objective or phenomenal sense, 
for beingness is the formless field 
within which the very urge to seek arises. 
YOU ALREADY ARE THAT. 
There is no particular quality to THIS THAT IS, 
so don’t join anything to it. 
The full grasping of this ever present fact shines as joy, compassion, peace and contentment.




Freedom is free but not cheap.
And we are not talking about money,
we are talking about the value of freedom.
The cost of freedom is you.
You must exchange ego for the real Self.
You have to become You without ‘you’.
Actually, it is the best deal of all.
Who is the one to be traded in?
It is just a mighty nuisance. Actually, it is the greatest thief in the universe for it robs you of true freedom and the knowledge of truth.
Throw him out!
Mooji

Someone like You

I've been searching a long time
Someone exactly like you
I've been traveling all around the world
Waiting for you to come through

Someone like you makes it all worth while
Someone like you keeps me satisfied
Someone exactly like you

I've been travelin' a hard road
Baby, lookin' for someone exactly like you
I've been carryin' my heavy load
Waiting for the light to come shining through

Someone like you makes it all worth while
Someone like you keeps me satisfied
Someone exactly like you

I've been doin' some soul searching
To find out where you're at
I've been up and down the highway
In all kinds of foreign lands

Someone like you makes it all worth while
Someone like you keeps me satisfied
Someone exactly like you

I've been all around the world
Marching to the beat of a different drum
But just lately I have realized
Maybe the best is yet to come

Someone like you makes it all worth while
Someone like you keeps me satisfied
Someone exactly like you

Someone exactly like you
Someone exactly like you

The Empty Boat

He who rules men lives in confusion;
He who is ruled by men lives in sorrow.
Yao therefore desired
Neither to influence others
Nor to be influenced by them.
The way to get clear of confusion
And free of sorrow
Is to live with Tao
In the land of the great Void.
If a man is crossing a river
And an empty boat collides with his own skiff,
Even though he be a bad-tempered man
He will not become very angry.
But if he sees a man in the boat,
He will shout at him to steer clear.
If the shout is not heard, he will shout again,
And yet again, and begin cursing.
And all because there is somebody in the boat.
Yet if the boat were empty.
He would not be shouting, and not angry.
If you can empty your own boat
Crossing the river of the world,
No one will oppose you,
No one will seek to harm you.
The straight tree is the first to be cut down,
The spring of clear water is the first to be drained dry.
If you wish to improve your wisdom
And shame the ignorant,
To cultivate your character
And outshine others;
A light will shine around you
As if you had swallowed the sun and the moon:
You will not avoid calamity.
A wise man has said:
“He who is content with himself
Has done a worthless work.
Achievement is the beginning of failure.
Fame is beginning of disgrace.”
Who can free himself from achievement
And from fame, descend and be lost
Amid the masses of men?
He will flow like Tao, unseen,
He will go about like Life itself
With no name and no home.
Simple is he, without distinction.
To all appearances he is a fool.
His steps leave no trace. He has no power.
He achieves nothing, has no reputation.
Since he judges no one
No one judges him.
Such is the perfect man:
His boat is empty.

-Chuang Tzu

Love

Become a lover; not of anybody in particular, just become a lover in general. Let love become your quality, not just a relationship with somebody; whenever love becomes a relationship, it includes one, but excludes the whole universe. Choosing one, and excluding the whole universe, is a very dangerous bargain when the whole universe belongs to you and you belongs to it. The whole universe goes on showering its love on you and not to respond is very ungrateful.

So love the sun, the moon, the stars, the trees, the rivers, the mountains, the people, the animals – simply be love and let the whole be your beloved. That’s exactly what makes a person religious. When your love spreads all over space, when it knows no boundary, when nothing confines it, when it is unlimited, when it is not focused on any object but it is just a state of being, then love is a prayer, then love is a meditation. And then love liberates.
