Flying


“God

turns you

from one feeling

to another

And teaches you

by means of opposites

So that you will have

two wings to fly,

Not one.”

.

– Rumi

.

Balance, the swift bird does not fly

with one wing shorter than the other.

Today, love, be kind,

be the person God wants you to be

but be wise enough to avoid the mean and sick people,

those who would do you harm.

Today, have faith, God will lead you to the angels.

Love is to fly with the angels.

Love is to help someone love themselves.

Give It Away


A bell is no bell
’til you ring it,

A song is no song
’til you sing it,

And love in your heart
Wasn’t put there to stay –

Love isn’t love
‘Til you give it away.”

.

~Oscar Hammerstein

.

Oh sixteen, the age of the hopeless romantic,

full of feelings and emotions, dreams and desires

not knowing, not fearing, only hoping beyond hope

that true love will be ours.

We want, we need, and then we are hurt,

and God knows that the hurt teaches us

that to love is to receive, to share, to be a part of,

and hopefully we become a grown up person.

Love is love when you give it away.

Love is helping someone love themselves.
