Memories Are My Enemy

By: Monica Pana

I want to let a desire with minimal intensities to master me, thinking that I will not be led by my mind. I want to let the time follow its path without me in its way, but I let the past determine my future without knowing why.

I want to feel any feeling. Because when you feel something, it is more than an emotion, it’s a proof that you’re human.

I’m sick of everything I ever thought that can grieve me. I never thought that the greatest joy is the greatest sadness. That what I love will destroy me faster than people… I never thought that memories are the greatest enemy of mine.

Things are changing and everything goes away and you wait, but you don’t ever know what or when it will come. Why would everything you want come to you? How can you afford to have everything when you really don’t know what you want?

We are born with desires, we die with hopes. Hope dies the last, but we die hoping. Is there any reason to hope when you know you hope in vain? And when everything you do is against you? All you can do is to say “sad” and to go on with your gaze forward and your heart behind.

Please DO Get Your Hopes Up

hope

By: Kate Corbin

“Get your hopes up! Expect something good to happen to you every day.”
– Joyce Meyer
 
“Don’t Get Your Hopes Up!”  We’ve heard that advice all our lives.  Family, friends, books and movies have all warned us not to get our hopes up.  It’s part of our popular culture.  You may even say it yourself, but did you ever think about what you’re saying?
 
Don’t Get Your Hopes Up is possibly the worst guidance ever.  It’s advising us not to hope and not to have desires – which can only result in a low vibration.
 
Like most people, I absorbed this teaching by osmosis.  I also remember when I said it for the last time. 
 
I was in my 20’s and I was telling my brother about a job I really wanted, adding that I’m not getting my hopes up about it.  Whereupon my older, wiser brother – who had by that time studied Eastern philosophy in India – pointed out how stupid I was being – as only a sibling can!   He went on to explain why not getting my hopes up is ridiculous.  Thank you, dear bro, for waking me up.
 
So why IS it ridiculous to avoid getting our hopes up?  Besides the fact that it’s unnatural to quash our hopes and dreams and besides the fact that it keeps our vibration low, it’s all fear-based.
 
It’s based on some crazy fear that if we don’t get what we’re hoping for, we’ll end up feeling disappointed.  But I ask you, is disappointment really too much to bear?  Isn’t disappointment a part of life that most of us learned by age 5 is survivable? 
 
Here’s the most significant thing.  To refuse to get our hopes up is to ignore the Law of Attraction.  Because hope is a high vibration.  Because the power of hope and positive expectation actually help us attract what we want. Because hope works for us, not against us!
 
“If you don’t have a dream,
how you gonna have a dream come true?”
– from the movie, South Pacific
 
Plus, I hasten to add, hope feels good!  Refusing to be hopeful is a missed opportunity to feel good.  And, since we know that feeling good is the best way to attract what we want, refusing to hope is like shooting yourself in the foot. 
 
If you don’t get what you want, you’ll live; you’ll grow; you’ll get greater clarity; something better will come along.  But if you continue suppressing your hope, you won’t live well.
 
And one more thing.  Refusing to get our hopes up does not guarantee we’ll avoid disappointment.  In fact, refusing to hope sets us up for disappointment.
 
Two questions: 
1) Do you want it? 
2) Will you allow yourself to have it?
 
If yes and yes, then absolutely do get your hopes up.  Get them up as high as possible.  Ride the high vibrational energy of positive expectation and enjoy the journey.  If it doesn’t happenScience Articles, so what?  Focus on the next desire with all the hope you can muster. And keep hope alive!

So Let It Be (SOC)

By: Jonathan Noble

I long to speak your name in love and sing your way to joy unbounded
In fields of green so serene, with water brooks flowing nearby
Glowing silver among slivers of gold in untold rapture of love
Unceasing, caressing the world in peace unleashed from souls
Woven into finest tapestry — all one — like children playing
Round Maypole, holding hands and dancing, prancing with deer
In sheer exultation of jubilation in this new year without fear,
When we sing a new song where we all belong and long for heaven
On earth, rebirth of what once was dead, now resurrected
Of new dawning when fawns lie down with lions and the adder is
But another ladder of joy for babes’ hands in holes in the ground
To sounds of delight in light shining under brilliant sun
Just begun to rise in high sky where the eagles fly with doves
And angels sing above, raining down feathers of emerald blessing,
Pressing pleasure into every soul that trods the sod and swims the sea
… So let it be
… So let it be
