Love the ones you're with!

“Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up.” 
― Neil Gaiman, The Sandman, Vol. 9: The Kindly Ones

Embrace your voice. Love your voice. ~a.

"Sometimes what seems like surrender isn't surrender at all. It's about what's going on in our hearts. About seeing clearly the way life is and accepting it and being true to it, whatever the pain, because the pain of not being true to it is far, far greater." - Nicholas Evans

5 days, 5 steps to something new. STEP THREE:

Look at each reason, and each individual part to break down the process
  • I’m not good with technology
  • I don't know how
  • Who would be interested?
Experiment, pick up my camera. Play with it. Create for me-I enjoy the process, I enjoy learning; start somewhere. Be inspired by music and lyrics. Create for me.

In context, thank you Philosopher's Notes:

"Your mind will be like its habitual thoughts; for the soul becomes dyed with the color of its thoughts. Soak it then in such trains of thoughts as, for example: Where life is possible at all, a right life is possible." Marcus Aurelius from Meditations

Don't confuse your title with your soul. ~a.

"The most common ego identifications have to do with possessions, the work you do, social status and recognition, knowledge and education, physical appearance, special abilities, relationships, personal and family history, belief systems, and often political, nationalistic, racial, religious, and other collective identifications. None of these is you." 
- Eckhart Tolle

Thank you for sharing my story, my obsession and my mission.

When there is vulnerability, there is love.
When there is love, there is creation.
~ Andrea Currie

Who's stirring your soul?

"A soul mate’s purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light can get in, make you so desperate and out of control that you have to transform your life." 
- Elizabeth Gilbert

{a.currie}

We have many soul mates throughout our lifetime, those we recognize, praise and blame.
Honour your perspective and thank your teachers, cherish your enemies and love your lessons.
Everyone is worth remembering, only some are worth forgetting.
Be true to you, what's your story?
Lay the foundation.
Start by thanking your soul mates.
~a.

How I see:

Through the voice of others, with their art and words, I SEE the world as INSPIRATION. ~a.

Better keep yourself clean and bright; 
you are the window through which you must see the world. 
- George Bernard Shaw

{a.currie}



The single most important thing:

"Being at peace with what is creates a vast and holy space for healing. Remember, stress bleeds all life force. Accepting and honoring every ounce of Kris allows me to rest and renew. From that relaxed and receptive space, we gain the clarity and strength needed to create a blueprint for a happy, healthy life. 
Let go. 
Fall in love. 
Heal.
When we accept ourselves exactly as we are, in exactly this moment, we shift from living for tomorrow to appreciating today. Acceptance heals. Rejection harms. Nurture and nourish yourself."
- Kris Carr

To achieve is to believe and to know. Who are you? ~a.

"To be authentic one must be "awake," meaning you have the ability to understand who you are, what you want to be, and how you want to fit in the world. From Aristotle to Buddha, Rumi to Steve Jobs, Kahlil Gibran to Paulo Coelho, many revered thinkers and talents have said that the path to an authentic journey is to know thyself, guided by an inner voice."

A way out of the forest is to make your own. ~a.

Has been my soul’s companion 
From deep inside 
My soul cries out: 
Do not wait, surrender 
For the sake of Love."
