Just found this - it is called 'life changing tips' - loved it - wanted to share -


Monday, April 14, 2014

Here are ten life changing tips inspired by quotes from the great Sufi poet, Rumi:

1. Challenge Fear

"Run from what’s comfortable. Forget safety. Live where you fear to live. Destroy your reputation. Be notorious."

2. Be Bold

"Do not be satisfied with the stories that come before you. Unfold your own myth."

3. Have Gratitude

"Wear gratitude like a cloak and it will feed every corner of your life."

4. Take Action

"Why should I stay at the bottom of a well, when a strong rope is in my hand?"

5. Have Faith

"As you start to walk out on the way, the way appears."

6. Embrace Setbacks

"If you are irritated by every rub, how will you be polished?"

7. Look Inside

"Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it."

8. Learn From Suffering

"The wound is the place where the Light enters you."

9. Don't Be Concerned With What Others Think Of You

"I want to sing like the birds sing, not worrying about who hears or what they think."

10. Do What You Love 

"Let yourself be drawn by the stronger pull of that which you truly love."

Rumi

    Oh to live life so, and as Rumi shared with us. He is one of my favorites.
The Holiness Dalai Lama has a very good list he shares and it reminded me that I should post it soon. Upon my return after my time away I will do just this.
But I snuck in when I saw you posted a blog.
Much love dear friend.
Hugs,
Erin

    I also like "Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field. I will meet you there." ~ Rumi

Rumi and Hafiz are 2 of my favorite poets! Thank you for this emoticon

    Just what I needed today. I'm going to copy it and print it out for a new sponsee that is really stuck and really struggling. It will knit nicely with the 12 step work we have been doing.
Thank you Wispy!
