Welcome to Being Beautiful – Day 02.  An invitation in learning how to treasure the REAL you.

Each day you are at a crossroads.

You consciously (intention) choose to follow The Road Less Travelled By.

Or you unconsciously (habitually) take The Voyage and Return Journey – the journey of separation without meaning.

Only you can authorize the direction you take.

Such authorization requires Commitment, Discipline and Practice. These are the 3 Keys to the Art of Love.

The primary crossroads is that between

  • Time and the Timeless.
  • Personal and the Universal.
  • Unity and Separation.
  • Love or Fear.

You authorize your real story that is the realization of sacred unity.

The unreal story is the story of personal separation from Love within the dimension of time and space.

In authorizing your real story from within you Follow your Destiny.

In being authorized from without you are consigned to your fate.

Knight at the Crossroads by Viktor Mikhaylovich Vasnetsov

All the Ways You Wander

All the ways you wander, all the ways you roam
All across great oceans, all across the foam
Through the faraway houses, through the sunsets on fire
Searching for the island of your heart’s desire
Where the sun is always shining and the oranges grow on the trees
You only have to wait two seconds there for every thing you please
In a garden of daisies, in a circle of light
Searching for the island of your heart’s delight

I’ll wait for you, like a true friend
I’ll wait for you, till the very end

And if you take the long way, if you take the long way home
Down where the magicians and the dreamers roam
Through the mountains of morning, through the valleys of night
Searching for the island of your hearts delight

I’ll wait for you, like a true friend
I’ll wait for you, till the very end
All the ways you wander, all the ways you roam
All across great oceans, all across the foam
Through the faraway houses, through the sunsets on fire
Searching for the island of your heart’s desire

John Spillane – Singer/Songwriter

Today’s Poem/Prayer/Song

For years, copying other people, I tried to know myself.
From within, I couldn’t decide what to do.
Unable to see, I heard my name being called.
Then I walked outside.

The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.
Don’t go back to sleep.
You must ask for what you really want.
Don’t go back to sleep.
People are going back and forth across the doorsill
where the two worlds touch.
The door is round and open.
Don’t go back to sleep.

Poems of Rumi, tr. by Coleman Barks

Today’s Quotation

If you want to live a more fulfilled life, first you will want to know your potential, who you really are. Meditation is the route to that knowing. It is the methodology of the science of awareness. The beauty of the inner science is that it enables whoever wants to explore and to experiment within, to do so alone. This eliminates dependence on an outer authority, the need to be affiliated with any organization and the obligation to accept a certain ideology. Once you understand the steps, you walk the walk in your own, individual way.

Osho

Today’s Word/Phrase is…

Spiritual Authority
