LETTER TO THE Braves,
One week has passed, and I am still not over the fact that we witnessed magic on that #InspiBrunch; it was not perfect, we know it, but it was definitely worth it!
We felt the energy, the hope and faith, the warmth and respect you all had towards each other. The compassion and openness for everyones story.
Life is not easy. Nothing is. But it’s simple.
We believe it’s all about sharing. Sharing experience, knowledge, advice, motivation, and inspiration, but also joy, positive vibes, precious memories and faith.
Showing the other that ‘hey! Look at me, it’s worth it!’ , ‘Don’t worry, it will all eventually be alright’, or ‘Come, I will show you, you can do it!’ and ‘I am here, I will stand by you!’
Like EDSUN said at his concert too, we would like to tell you to pause for a minute and read this very carefully and let it sink in:
“You all, each of you, you are powerful. You have this special strength in you, that you may already have discovered or not. It doesn’t matter; it is there already.
You have one mission now; it is to
first; acknowledge it and embrace it, don’t be ashamed of who you are, of what you believe and of what you want to attain in this life.
secondly; work towards the abundance of it, put all your effort and time into the accomplishment of what it is that you have in mind, invest your energy and wealth wisely into what it is that matters for you and what is dear to you.
By all means, please!, don’t waste that precious currency on toxic ideas, pointless conflicts, illogical events, ludicrous political agendas, irrational popular myths, perfidious storytellers, and negative environments.
Remember always to trust nothing that doesn’t genuinely honor your direct interest and growth.
Listen to your heart, it knows already what you want and what is good for you. Don’t get fooled by your five senses; they can trick you easily. Instead, trust your sixth sense, which is your heart, the concentration of all it is that you can sense is inside it, follow that voice and devote your life to it. Explore your deepest consciousness and you will find your certainty.
Prove YOURSELF first that you are very well capable of it, then your surrounding will have no choice but recognize it, and with that, quickly, you will show the entire world.
I would like to close on a beautiful quote by Marianne Williamson, a spiritual activist, author, lecturer and founder of The Peace Alliance.
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people will not feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone and
as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.
