No snowflake in an avalanche ever feels responsible.

There are cracks in the foundation of our system of ignorance and conditioning, and this is where opportunity lies. There are components of cause and effect that can be altered via your will to educate yourself, analyze, and create. The greater we are able to perceive the web of Reality, the more capable we are of adjusting the strands where necessary.
After the final no there comes a yes
And on that yes the future world depends.

Surprises

churchjanitor:

I love that God teaches me in the most surprising ways.

I love how he uses the most unexpected people to reveal how to live for him.

I love how he uses the most insignificant of events to astound me.

I love how he uses my friendships to humble me.

I love that he uses the most mundane parts of life to reveal how blessed I am.

I love his surprising methods of leading me to faithfulness. How about you?

Lord,

I thank you for silence. I thank you for the moments where I am left with the thoughts that I cannot get out of my head. In those moments, you expose the frailties, fears, doubts, joys. and strengths of my heart. I thank you for the silence that forces me to consider the realities of the…

There’s so much more to life than finding someone who will want you, or being sad over someone who doesn’t. There’s a lot of wonderful time to be spent discovering yourself without hoping someone will fall in love with you along the way, and it doesn’t need to be painful or empty. You need to fill yourself up with love. Not anyone else. Become a whole being on your own. Go on adventures, fall asleep in the woods with friends, wander around the city at night, sit in a coffee shop on your own, write on bathroom stalls, leave notes in library books, dress up for yourself, give to others, smile a lot. Do all things with love, but don’t romanticize life like you can’t survive without it. Live for yourself and be happy on your own. It isn’t any less beautiful, I promise.

Love unconditionally. Don’t ask anything in return. Much comes on its own, that’s another thing. Don’t be a beggar. In love be an emperor. Just give it and see what happens. A thousandfold it comes back. But one has to learn it. Otherwise one remains a miser. One gives a little and waits for much to come back, and your waiting, your expectation, destroys the whole beauty of it.
