“Because you are alive, everything is possible.”
“To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself.”
“Walk as if you are kissing the Earth with your feet.”
“Letting go gives us freedom, and freedom is the only condition for happiness. If, in our heart, we still cling to anything – anger, anxiety, or possessions – we cannot be free.”
“The source of love is deep in us and we can help others realize a lot of happiness. One word, one action, one thought can reduce another person’s suffering and bring that person joy.”
“If love is in our hears, every thought, word and deed can bring about a miracle. Because understanding is the very foundation of love, words and actions that emerge from our love are always helpful.”
“When we are mindful, deeply in touch with the present moment, our understanding of what is going on deepens, and we begin to be filled with acceptance, joy, peace and love.”
“Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it is the axis on which the world earth revolves – slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future.”
“For things to reveal themselves to us, we need to be ready to abandon our views about them.”
“It is my conviction that there is no way to peace – peace is the way.”

Beautiful Easter Poem – Charmaine Chircop

graphics-religion-378760

On the day our eyes open to the prism of the sun;

On that day, winter solitude would be gone;

The avalanche of differences melts into nothingness;

Through the same breath, through  the same soul;

We would live again as one, no matter who we are;

No matter the colour of our skin, gay or straight,

rich, or poor, innocent or once found guilty.

No matter if we are lawyers, prisoners, doctors or peasants;

No matter our political beliefs, nor our different religions;

A  Catholic, a Muslim, a Buddhist , a Hindu or a  Jew.

On that day, we would all wear identical dresses;

We would all be the significant other, because He has died,

and He has died for all. Jesus died for Peter, John and Judah,

for Lazarus and Maria, Magdalene, Jesus died for me,

He has died for you, for him, for her and even for them.

He gave up till the last drop of blood and painful cry,

for each and every name engraved upon our Father’s palm.

He was  born to die,but it’s not his death that we celebrate,

We celebrate His life, because we believe in life

We celebrate His forgivness, because we experienced

the beauty of forgiveness, the happiness, the return of  blissful joy.

and  we celebrate the ever present love;

Because it is the gift of love that He bestowed on us.

Jesus was born to die, but He was born to rise

Upon death He has risen, through His death we survived;

Because of Him, in the darkness, in the labyrinth of our night;

There will always,always be the little flicker of  a candle,

that fills our hearts with hope, and  warming  light.
