I will not contradict your truth, nor will I impose mine on you. I can only contradict myself. The reality I perceive is the reality I achieve. One man's illusion is another mans truth, and one man's truth is another man's illusion.
I will not judge, for the less I judge, the more the universe will reveal its truths to me.
I will not use force on you. To put force on something is to run the risk of breaking it.
I will use my power to avoid the call of war. War is a knife. I am a magnet. I know what a magnet is for. I will stay away from the knife.
I will follow my intuition, the voice of my heart, even if it takes the long road, I will trust this road. I will trust this voice. The ego is impatient and it will not last in the journey by which only the heart can endure.
I will take risks, because only through risk can I break old patterns and build new worlds.
I will embrace the mysteries and the insanities I behold for there is sanity in insanity and magic in every mystery.
I will do what I love, and I will love what I do, for when I love what I do I become good at it, and when I am good at what I do I will become fearless.
I will see my light. I will embrace my light. For this light will let me walk the earth, inspire others and live my dreams. I will be the light that brightens, not the light that burns.
I will be patient, for patience is a tree that sheds its leaves in winter, and grows it back in Spring.
I will walk towards the light, even if I have to go through dark alleys, or tunnels. There is a light at the end of the tunnel, in the start, in the middle. The light is me.
I will live in the present. The more I am attuned to the present, the less I have to dwell in the past. The past is never my last. Today is a gift. Tomorrow will come no matter what.
I will listen to my inner child, for I know that if I don't it will yell and scream and will not stop until I listen. I will not keep it locked in. My inner child will express, create, travel... My soul is a child and this child shall run free.
I will embrace solitude and let it be my friend. In every crowd there is a dying kiss, in solitude, emerging bliss.
I will let silence speak to me. Silence will give me the best answers.
I will be responsible for my own happiness and serenity, for my own turmoils and my own sadness, I will hold no one accountable.
I will be a source of joy and happiness to others. For that is where I find my own joy and happiness.
I will love...unconditionally. Unconditional love is the only way to love, otherwise it is not love, but an agenda.
I will share, and I will give, and I will serve my brothers and sisters. This is the only way to keep me whole. To keep giving a part of myself to the world.
I will not grieve my loss, rather I will hope, for hope is the sunrise. It just has to be there every day. I haven't lost anything until I lose hope.
I will trust the universe and the signs it draws up for me, there is wisdom in the stars.
I will follow my heart for if it is for me my heart will know. If it is not for me my heart will know too. My heart will always know.
I will stay close to nature, and I will let my children stay close to it. Nature is the only classroom.
I will live in the heart so it will never be empty. I will fill my heart with my love, so there will be enough love to give away.
I will forgive those who ignore, ridicule and judge me. More than this I will forgive myself for allowing them to hurt me.
I will be thankful for the darkest hour, and I will stand the test of this hour, for it is in this hour that I will learn to illuminate my being.
I will not weep for the fault in the night. There is no fault in the night that the dawn cannot make right.
I will dream, for no one is too old or too young to dream, and dreams can make me run, even with tired feet.
I will sing, I will dance, I will laugh, so I may let it it all go...and LIVE.
I will live. I will love, and I will learn. For life is a miracle, love is a gift, and learning is a reward.
I will see myself in others, so I will have no enemy.
