Poem: Opportunity of a Forever

 

 

 

 

 

 

“THE OPPORTUNITY OF A FOREVER”

Never before in time and space
has this moment come about;
never shall it come again.
our lives are built on here and now.

Only fools would let this pass
without feeling what we feel.
Let us be calm and let us be bold;
face the fears before which we kneel.

If it’s our past that holds us back,
then let us create a new future.
One where joy fills our hearts
and these feelings of ours mature.

If it is failure we most fear
then let us be filled with trust.
Knowing within that nothing is lost
by honestly expressing our love.

Love Is The Ultimate Affirmation – The Affirmation Spot for Monday February 15, 2010

Some of you will remember the great Leo Buscaglia and some may ask who? Dr. Leo Buscaglia was a motivational speaker before everyone was a motivational speaker. This long-time special education professor at USC was famous for his passionate belief in love and the potential of human beings.

Today I am sharing the final two parts of a 10-part video posted on YouTube of Dr. Buscaglia speaking in Wisconsin some time during the 1980s. The speech was called Love: The Ultimate Affirmation. The video is dated, but the message is as fresh and needed as this morning’s headlines.

2010 Affirmation

“2010 is OUR year! This is the year we break free! This is the year we break through! This is the year we break out!”

Rumi Poem: The Meaning of Love – The Affirmation Spot for Sunday February 14, 2010

Rumi was a 13th Century Persian poet and Sufi mystic. His poetry has attained iconic status in the modern world for its passion and insight into the human condition. Love was a common theme in his poems. This Valentine’s Day I am featuring one of his greatest love poems.

Lines from Rumi love poems are quoted in the newly released movie Valentine’s Day.

Happy Valentine’s to all the lovers out there.

The Meaning of Love

By Rumi

Both light and shadow
are the dance of Love.
Love has no cause;
it is the astrolabe of God’s secrets.
Lover and Loving are inseparable
and timeless.

Although I may try to describe Love
when I experience it I am speechless.
Although I may try to write about Love
I am rendered helpless;
my pen breaks and the paper slips away
at the ineffable place
where Lover, Loving and Loved are one.

Every moment is made glorious
by the light of Love.

Stay inspired and stay in love!

Poem: The Hug – The Affirmation Spot for Saturday February 13, 2010

“THE HUG”

By Ray Davis
Copyright 1997

Tender moments spent in her embrace
No Mozart concerto, no gentle April day,
whatever charms they may possess,
can make me feel alive that way.

Two souls profoundly engaged.
Two hearts feeling love’s gentle tug.
A rapturous intermingling,
while enjoying a simple hug.

Stay inspired!

60 Valentine’s Day Affirmations – The Affirmation Spot for Friday February 12, 2010

This Sunday is Valentine’s Day. It’s a day when we celebrate the concept of romatic love. For those of you fortunate enough to have that special someone in your life, congratulations. Enjoy and cherish that opportunity to spend your life with someone who means the world to you. What an amazing gift to find that best friend, partner, and lover for life.

For those still searching, take heart. Use this Valentine’s Day to celebrate your love for yourself. It’s a lot better than spending the day unhappy and depressed. When was the last time you did something really nice for yourself? Do it Sunday!

I spent a lot of Valentine’s Days wishing I could find that special person to make that special connection. It was when I began affirming and consciously attracting that person rather than wishing that things changed for me.

I was 34 years old when I met April. There is nothing in this world like finding that right someone to spend your life with. Whatever your situation, affirm where you are now and affirm where you want your current relationship or a perspective relationship to be.

When you do amazing things begin to happen. Your someone is out there too!

So, this Valentine’s Day, whether you’re in love or in looking, here are some affirmations to celebrate, attract, and appreciate love into your life.
