Tears are far more beautiful than anything that you have with you, because tears come from the overflow of your being. Tears are not necessarily of sadness; sometimes they come out of great joy and sometimes they come out of great peace and sometimes they come out of ecstasy and love. In fact they have nothing to do with sadness or happiness. Anything that stirs your heart too much, anything that takes possession of you, anything that is too much, that you cannot contain and it starts overflowing - that brings tears.
Accept them with great joy, relish them, nourish them, welcome them, and through tears you will know how to pray.
Through tears you will know how to see. Tear-filled eyes are capable of seeing truth. Tear-filled eyes are capable of seeing the beauty of life and the benediction of it.
“Love, and more love becomes available; use more and you have more. This is the law of life. You can eat the cake and have it also. Compassion, love, activity, whatsoever the dimension, the same rule applies. Whatsoever you want more of, do the same. If you want to become an infinite source of love, then go on sharing love as much as you can. Don’t be a miser; only misers lose energy. And we are all misers, that’s why we always feel dissipated.”—Osho
love the tattoo, does the arrow have a meaning or is it just because you like the way it looks?
thanks, lovely! it has a huge meaning! it’s a reminder to ALWAYS keep moving forward, no matter how hard what we’re going through is; we have no control over anything, except the way we choose to feel and perceive our situations! we’re always in the exact place and time we need to be. a reminder to stand still, let go, surrender and keep hoping! Light’s always on the way! :) x
“I love the ground under his feet, and the air over his head, and everything he touches and every word he says. I love all his looks, and all his actions and him entirely and all together.”—Emily Brontë (via bavarde)
