Happy New Day

Life is

broken down into

made up of

years months weeks days hours minutes seconds

moments

The task goal point meaning of Life is to live each one of them
fully, openly, heartily

Moments are Life
This moment is living

This moment is what it is
And it is also in movement

The movement of the moment
flowing with grace
simultaneous embrace and let-go

Accepting the innate perfection of everysinglething,
while at the same time
choosing healing
(choosing yoga, breath, meditation, meaningful work, mindful consumption,  healthy lifestyles)

Above all,
loving
and choosing love.

To live is to love.
To love is to live.
You live that you may learn to love.
You love that you may learn to live in the eternal.

Big Magic ~ 12 Inspiring Quotes for Creatives

https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/2.0/legalcode

Elizabeth Gilbert is utterly honest, open, blunt and inspiring in her latest book, Big Magic. Here are some of my favorite quotes:

“Just because creativity is mystical doesn’t mean it shouldn’t also be demystified—especially if it means liberating artists from the confines of their own grandiosity, panic and ego.” ~ Elizabeth Gilbert

“You must keep calling out in the dark woods for your own big magic.” ~ Elizabeth Gilbert

“We must risk delight. We must have the stubbornness to accept our gladness in the ruthless furnace of this world.” ~ Jack Gilbert

“Do whatever brings you to life, then. Follow your own fascinations, obsessions, and compulsions. Trust them. Create whatever causes a revolution in your heart.” ~ Elizabeth Gilbert

“It’s a simple and generous rule of life that whatever you practice, you will improve at.” ~ Elizabeth Gilbert

“Creativity is sacred, and it is not sacred. What we make matters enormously, and it doesn’t matter at all. We toil alone, and we are accompanied by spirits. We are terrified, and we are brave. Art is a crushing chore and a wonderful privilege. Only when we are at our most playful can divinity finally get serious with us. Make space for all these paradoxes to be equally true inside your soul, and I promise—you can make anything.” ~ Elizabeth Gilbert

“Do you have the courage to bring forth the treasures that are hidden within you?” ~ Elizabeth Gilbert

“You are already creatively legitimate by nature of your mere existence here among us.” ~ Elizabeth Gilbert

“We are all just beginners here, and we shall all die beginners.” ~ Elizabeth Gilbert

“I have a right to collaborate with creativity, because I myself am a product and a consequence of creation.” ~ Elizabeth Gilbert

“I am a child of God, just like anyone else. I am a constituent of the universe. I have invisible spirit benefactors who believe in me and who labor alongside me.” ~ Elizabeth Gilbert
