Winds that change

The winds, they blow across the world without a birthplace, and with no place to die. The dunes are changed by the wind, but the desert never changes.

Wander as free as the wind; see wonders, meet people and experience what life has out there, let it change you just as dunes take new shape. Seldom do we follow the path laid out for us–the path to happiness and to our  “Personal Legend.” When you posses great treasures within you, you try to share or tell others of them, seldom are you understood or believed. Some may interfere and even block your path only to never discover their own. While others you meet along your path  are able to help you realize your legend.

Everyday is to be lived or to make one’s departure from this world. Usually the threat of death makes people a lot more aware of their lives. As a camel man once said “to die tomorrow was no worse than dying any other day.”

To begin fully living, one must die. Die in order for rebirth to begin. Today, let it be the day you start living this precious moment, the here and now. This moment…take note of every breath you take, realize the life within you.  The people who are happy have God within them. God is the spiritual journey that one takes within to find peace, to discover balance and understand love. That is God. It is within you: it is you.

There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve; the fear of failure. People need not fear the unknown if they are capable of achieving what they need and want. Find the courage; courage to embark on whatever your passionate pursuits are even with the fear of failure.  If good things are coming, they will be a pleasant surprise. If bad things are, and you know in advance, you will suffer greatly before they even occur. Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. Every blessing ignored becomes a curse.

When we strive to be better then we are, everything around us becomes better, too. Life is the moment we are living right now.
