the awakening

 

In the early dawn of happiness
you gave me three kisses
so that I would wake up
to this moment of love

I tried to remember in my heart
what I’d dreamt about
during the night
before I became aware
of this moving
of life

I found my dreams
but the moon took me away
It lifted me up to the firmament
and suspended me there
I saw how my heart had fallen
on your path
singing a song

Between my love and my heart
things were happening which
slowly, … slowly
made me recall everything

You amuse me with your touch
although I can’t see your hands.
You have kissed me with tenderness
although I haven’t seen your lips
You are hidden from me.

But it is you who keeps me alive

Perhaps the time will come
when you will tire of kisses
I shall be happy
even for insults from you
I only ask that you
keep some attention on me.

run by love

Have an intention for everything you do.

An intention is a mini-goal.

Without intention, you are thrown around by the waves of the ocean of life.

You can land almost anywhere, including landing on the rocks.

Having an intention for everything you do is deciding in advance where you are going and where you will land.

With intention you set your sail, and you sail where intended.

Make it your intention, to be loving in spite of whatever happens.

Decide to have your life run by love.

Fuel your day with love, the most powerful force in the universe.

When you are loving you experience love.

Remember that love and being loving,
is living in the same energy as being positive,
being happy,
being successful
and being abundant.
