One of the most important of life´s lessons is to learn independence, to understand freedom. This means independence from attachments, from results, from opinions, and from expectations. Breaking attachments leads to freedom, but breaking attachments does not mean abandoning a loving and meaningful relationship, a relationship that nourishes your soul. It means ending dependency on any person or thing. Love is never a dependency.

In out-of-the-way places of the heart,
Where your thoughts never think to wander,
This beginning has been quietly forming,
Waiting until you were ready to emerge.
For a long time it has watched your desire,
Feeling the emptiness growing inside you,
Noticing how you willed yourself on,
Still unable to leave what you had outgrown.
It watched you play with the seduction of safety
And the gray promises that sameness whispered,
Heard the waves of turmoil rise and relent,
Wondered would you always live like this.

Then the delight, when your courage kindled,
And out you stepped onto new ground,
Your eyes young again with energy and dream,
A path of plenitude opening before you.
Though your destination is not yet clear
You can trust the promise of this opening;
Unfurl yourself into the grace of beginning
That is at one with your life’s desire.
Awaken your spirit to adventure;
Hold nothing back, learn to find ease in risk;
Soon you will be home in a new rhythm,
For your soul senses the world that awaits you.

~ John O’Donohue

When you Rest in Quietness,
and your image of yourself fades,
and your image of the world fades,
and your ideas of others fade, what’s left?
A brightness, a radiant emptiness that is simply what you are.

In you is all of Heaven. Every leaf that falls is given life in you. Each bird that ever sang will sing again in you. And every flower that ever bloomed has saved its perfume and its loveliness for you. — A course in Miracles

Rumi – The Path

January 20, 2014

Whatever happens to you, don’t fall in despair. Even if all the doors are closed, a secret path will be there for you that no one knows. You can’t see it yet but so many paradises are at the end of this path. Be grateful! It is easy to thank after obtaining what you want, thank before having what you want.

~ Rumi

Do you have a dream?
A sacred dream that wants to be lived out through you?
Is there an urge, an impulse, a desire
that is longing to be expressed?
What is it that wants to come forth?
What is it that is ready, waiting, calling?

Eckhart Tolle ~ Reflection

January 15, 2014

Even a stone, and more easily a flower or a bird, could show you the way back to God, to the Source, to yourself. When you look at it or hold it & let it be without imposing a word or mental label on it, a sense of awe, of wonder, arises within you. Its essence silently communicates itself to you and reflects your own essence back to you.

~ Eckhart Tolle

The highest good is like water.
Water gives life to ten thousand things
and does not strive.
It flows in places men reject and so it is like the Tao.

In dwelling, be close to the land.
In meditation, go deep in the heart.
In dealing with others, be gentle and kind.
In speech, be true.
In ruling, be just.
In daily life, be competent.
In action, be aware of the time and the season.

No fight: No blame.

Tao Te Ching, Verse 8

2014 ~ Lena Jacome

January 10, 2014

Dear Sweet Friends,

Thank you so much for visiting my site and sending such kind and generous comments. I sincerely appreciate your time and energy! 2013 was a good year. I invested more time into this blog site and feel content with it’s evolution.

2013 provided some surprising challenges. When something traumatic happens to us, it’s hard to make sense of it all. For the first time in my life I experienced a complete paradigm shift. I went from feeling victimized, as if the Universe was ‘doing this too me’ from realizing that the Universe was ‘doing this for me’ and presenting an opportunity for me to heal. I felt deeply humbled and loved. I think my blogging (in addition to meditation, prayer, spiritual counseling, nutritional changes, books, journaling and more…) has helped facilitate this shift in my life. I have much gratitude for all my experiences in 2013. I am EXTREMELY excited about 2014. As every year passes, I get to know myself a little more, dig a little deeper and find more strength, courage and peace within. I’m eternally grateful to have the life I have. It is a true gift to be alive!

Here’s wishing all of you every ounce of happiness in 2014. Sending each one of you a virtual hug and blessings as we entire the New Year.

Sincerely,

Lena Jácome
