Love thoughtsto help you along the way in your journey for love . . .
Love is complete. Your soul mate doesn’t “complete you” – your soul mate is a reflection of you. Once you feel wh0le and have grown in your own knowing and confidence look for someone that is whole and has worked on themselves too! No fixer uppers for you.
So many people run around looking for someone “to complete them.” But the thing is, everyone is a fallible human being, so no one can complete you and ever live up to your expectations. Expectations are something that can trip you up and lead to tremendous disappointment. Get clear on what you need from a relationship. Become great at speaking your truth and letting those you love know exactly what you need instead of expecting you will get it from them. Then discover how you can be the best listener teaching your soul mate the art of hearing and validating what you are expressing.
Love you first. Then look for someone that brings out the best in you and you bring out the best in them. That is the key to lasting love!
The following is a list of love quotes and inspiration:
“Love is our true destiny. We do not find the meaning of life by ourselves alone – we find it with another.”
~ Thomas Merton, Love and Living
“We’re all seeking that special person who is right for us. But if you’ve been through enough relationships, you begin to suspect there’s no right person, just different flavors of wrong. Why is this? Because you yourself are wrong in some way, and you seek out partners who are wrong in some complementary way. But it takes a lot of living to grow fully into your own wrongness. And it isn’t until you finally run up against your deepest demons, your unsolvable problems—the ones that make you truly who you are—that we’re ready to find a lifelong mate. Only then do you finally know what you’re looking for. You’re looking for the wrong person. But not just any wrong person: the right wrong person—someone you lovingly gaze upon and think, “This is the problem I want to have.”
I will find that special person who is wrong for me in just the right way.
Let our scars fall in love.”
― Galway Kinnell
“Of all the liars in the world sometimes the worst are our own fears.”
– Rudyard Kipling, was an English author and poet.
“What’s difficult in life is to stay centered when somebody does or says something that tempts us to close our hearts because their heart was closed. That is hard. But that is also how we grow. We go through those circumstances in order to evolve into people who can hold to our loving center no matter what the world throws us.”
– Marianne Williamson, is a best-selling author and motivational speaker.
“You cannot get sick enough to help sick people get better. You cannot get poor enough to help poor people thrive. It is only in your thriving that you have anything to offer anyone. If you’re wanting to be of an advantage to others, be as tapped in, turned in, turned on as you can possibly be.”
– Esther Abraham-Hicks, is a best-selling author and lecturer.
“Whatever you fear most has no power… it is your fear that has the power.”
– Oprah Winfrey, is one amazing lady.
“If you listen closely you’ll hear a small voice hidden in the dim shade of all your fears that whispers, ‘this isn’t real.'”
– Jackson Kiddard, author and polymath.
“As you begin to take action toward the fulfillment of your goals and dreams, you must realize that not every action will be perfect. Not every action will produce the desired result. Not every action will work. Making mistakes, getting it almost right, and experimenting to see what happens are all part of the process of eventually getting it right.”
– Jack Canfield, is the best-selling author of Chicken Soup for the Soul.
“The gardener goes forth in faith to sow his seeds. He has learned that as he sows, so shall he reap… If we can conceive only a little good, that is as much as we can experience. We must instill into the mind the fundamental proposition that good is without bounds. Let us realize and work with this sound knowledge and perfect faith: That as high as we shall make our mark in Mind and Spirit, so high shall be Its outward manifestation in our material world.”
“You have a strength of your own that is great enough to do all that is necessary. The Almighty has implanted genius within the soul of everyone and what we need to do is to unearth that inner genius and cause it to shine forth… All the power and intelligence of the Universe is already within, waiting to be utilized. Self-reliance is the word to dwell on. Listen to your own voice; it will speak in terms that are unmistakable. Trust in your own self more than in all else.”
– Ernest Holmes, author and spiritual teacher.
“Aim for success, not perfection. Remember that fear always lurks behind perfectionism. Confronting your fears and allowing yourself the right to be human can, paradoxically, make yourself a happier and more productive person.”
– Dr. David M. Burns, received his doctorate in medicine at Harvard Medical School in 1972 and worked out of UCSD.
“Ring the bells that still can ring,
Forget your perfect offering.
There’s a hole in everything,
That’s how the light comes through.”
– Leonard Cohen, is a Canadian singer-songwriter, musician, poet, novelist, and artist.
“When you want to do a big thing, get the mental pattern, make it perfect, know just what it means, enlarge your thought, keep it to yourself, pass it over to the creative power behind all things, wait and listen, and when the impression comes, follow it with assurance. Don’t talk to anyone about it. Never listen to negative talk or pay attention to it and you will succeed where all others fail.”
– Ernest Holmes, was the founder of Religious Science. This passage is from his book Creative Mind & Success.
“Creative work is not a selfish act or a bid for attention on the part of the actor. It’s a gift to the world and every being in it. Don’t cheat us of your contribution. Give us what you’ve got.”
– Steven Pressfield, is a best-selling author. This quote is taken from his short and perfect book The War of Art.
In each moment are the seeds of profound and uplifting experience; it is for us to fertilize and water these seeds.
– James P Delpino
“Each of us has an inner dream that we can unfold if we will just have the courage to admit what it is. And the faith to trust our own admission. The admitting is often very difficult. What we really want to do is what we are really meant to do. When we do what we are meant to do, money comes to us, doors open for us, we feel useful, and the work we do feels like play to us.”
– Julia Cameron, is an American teacher, author, artist, poet, playwright, novelist, filmmaker, composer, and journalist. She is perhaps most famous for her book The Artist’s Way.
“Some of us think holding on makes us strong; but sometimes it is letting go.”
– Hermen Hesse, was a Nobel Prize winning German-Swiss poet, novelist, and painter.
“We grow great by dreams. All big men are dreamers. They see things in the soft haze of a spring day or in the red fire of a long winter’s evening. Some of us let these great dreams die, but others nourish and protect them; nurse them through bad days till they bring them to the sunshine and light, which comes always to those who sincerely hope that their dreams will come true.”
– Woodrow T. Wilson, was the 28th President of the United States.
“We often hesitate to follow our intuition out of fear. Most usually, we are afraid of the changes in our own life that our actions will bring. Intuitive guidance, however, is all about change. It is energetic data ripe with the potential to influence the rest of the world. To fear change but to crave intuitive clarity is like fearing the cold, dark night while pouring water on the fire that lights your cave. An insight the size of a mustard seed is powerful enough to bring down a mountain-sized illusion that may be holding our lives together. Truth strikes without mercy. We fear our intuitions because we fear the transformational power within our revelations.”
– Caroline Myss, is one of my favorite authors.
Small changes can make big differences over time; those little daily modifications to grow and improve are important to progress- consider the Grand Canyon as a good example of what changes can do over time.
– James P Delpino
