Breath in, Breath out - a Humble Offering to Eric Dierker!
Be good without reason.
This is a wise way to live happily.— Sean Dragon
About Eric Dierker
Eric is a miracle, a miracle of Love! If I had to use one phrase to describe him, I would surely say that he is "a man of God", you have just to read some of his hubs, and you will understand. I am quite sure that in some other lives Eric had been a student of Socrates or Plato and Apostle Paul! I wouldn't be surprised if I learned that he was Moses! He is a human form around an enormous luminous Heart which is constantly glowing humour, kindness and Love in a world desperately needed these virtues. Every time I read one of his writings I become wiser and happier!
Eric, I have never met you in person, but you are a true brother of mine! I Love you, I pray for you, I thank you for being Eric the Great!
This is not a tribute; this is a big big hug...
Calm down, you do not have to hurry. This moment is one of the countless moments you will experience in eternity. You are made of the same materials that the eternal Universe was made of. You will always live somewhere. So, what's the reason for you to hurry? Enjoy the gifts of this moment. Breath in, breath out.
Calm down, you do not have to worry. You are a child of God and God is Love. In His Love, everything, difficult or easy, is meaningful. How significant will be your current problem after some time? But it will still be a lesson that made you wiser, that lifted you a little higher. Learn from the difficulty, do not worry about it. Breath in, breath out.
Calm down, you do not have to condemn. You can judge the actions, but not the people. You have not lived their lives, you do not know what has happened to them, what fears they haunt them. You do not know the pain they have experienced, the temptations they had to fight, the misunderstandings they have faced, the demons they had to deal with. You also are not perfect, and you do not know how you would react if you had been in their position. Do not judge, no matter how easy it may be, do love, no matter how hard it may seem. Breath in, breath out.
Calm down, you do not need to bear a grudge. Fight for your rights, but do not seek revenge. If someone has offended you there is a Greater Law that will take care of your recovery, as long as you continue to be righteous. Raise your consciousness over the wrong and free yourself and the offender from this situation. There is no higher Power of Change, no more excellent medicine, than forgiveness, because it is the beginning of Love. Forgive and live free. Breath in, breath out.
Calm down, you do not have to complain. It may seem that you have fewer than others and be jealous of it, but believe me, this is your perception. Some others are jealous of what you have. So deal with your stuff. Thank God for what you already have, be grateful for all these, and take care of your spiritual improvement so that to enjoy everything you want. The Source is inexhaustible, the limitation lies in our ability to absorb from Him. Gratitude is a source of happiness, grievances, nagging, and misery, are causes of unhappiness. Breath in, breath out.
Calm down, you do not have to claim things that are not yours. If something does not belong to you rightly, if it is not part of your consciousness, you will never be able to keep it, even if it is given to you, much more if you take it fraudulently. Whatever you take in this way it will hurt you, no matter how it seems initially, because it postpones your growth. If you want to change the world around you then first change the world inside you. We gain spiritually what we need, and then we earn it on the material level. The reverse is ephemeral, and against the laws of the Universe, hence it will bring us problems. Become a better person, and better things will come into your life. Breath in, breath out.
Calm down, you do not have to compete with others. In whichever position you are now, it's the right one for you at this specific moment. It is your position, and no one can steal it from you anyway, such as you cannot take the place that belongs by right to someone else. If you do not like the one you are in now, do not claim the position of someone else but strive to improve yourself in order to get what your Soul wishes. Raising your consciousness with acts of Love, kindness, offering, and understanding will elevate your position, and no one will be able to deprive you of it since it will be the one that the Universe would have prepared exclusively for you. See others around you as partners in this endeavour, as comrades rather than competitors. There is no competition in the Universe, because, it offers wisely to every one according to his needs. Breath in, breath out.
The moment you learn to create your own happiness no one can deprive you of it.— Sean Dragon
