The Flower in You

I was having a discussion today with a very dear friend that I thought was a topic worthy of this page:

She had the idea that it is a task, and not an easy thing to feel good about yourself, least of all to love herself:

Feeling good about who you are is actually a lot easier than most people think. Folks have the idea that they need to do something very special to make it happen. But the truth is the exact opposite. There is really nothing to do because love is not a doing, it is a being. When you befriend yourself, you become a friend to others, and the world at large. You are a friend with nature, the moon, and the stars! And the more you meet them in love, the more you generate love in your own being. And the more you bring those higher feelings to your self, and to your heart, the better you and your heart will feel about you. That’s how it works. It is not magic. It just has to do with what you bring to existence, because that is what it will return to you. So it is not that it’s not easy, it’s that people are simply unaware. In other words, would I be thinking correctly to expect you to smile at me if I am frowning at you? Of course not, I must also smile at you! Then there is a meeting between us. We understand each other!

The more you are loving to others, the more that love flowers in you. And then it just becomes a part of your every day fragrance. You become the very beauty that you shower onto others, so it is not only a gift for them, it is also a gift to you. Love is not an isolation. It is a movement, something that returns to you. That’s why it feels so so good to love somebody. It is not only that you are enjoying how it feels to love, or be loved; it is the thrill of being in love with the world of love!

Sometimes people miss that part. They think that love is only a person to person thing. But this is incorrect. True love is a global, universal thing. It is something that reaches to every single person, and every great or little thing. That’s why I cannot only love my wife, my parents, family and friends, but not also love you. I must love you too. If I want to love anybody then I must love everybody. I am not able to choose who to love. I can only choose if I want to love. Do you see? People are very distorted about this. They have the idea that love is a singular thing. But nothing could be further from the truth. Love is a Godliness. It has no height or depth. There are no limits to it! Because love is not a lightbulb, where you can simply turn it on and off as you deem fit, depending on whom you are with, no. It doesn’t work that way. Love is either on all of the time, or it is off all of the time. dwp

Appearance

Good morning friends, and Happy Tuesday! 💜

The problem with people is that they don’t realize how free love is. All you need to have is a heart. Nothing else is required. But nobody believes this, so they run round and around, making their muscles bigger and stronger, buying more and more of this and that; makeup and clothes, cars, hair, nails, gettin’ their sexy on, gettin ready for the saloons. Do you see? There’s no end. If you don’t see or feel love’s essence and presence right there inside you, then there isn’t any point. Because there’s no substitute. You cannot wear a beautiful dress or come out bra-less, and think that it will do the trick. Distractions are as old as time, and they also only work on fools. And I know because I have watched them work my entire life. I agree that they are tempting; and that’s the allure. That’s what they’re supposed to do. But if, when you look closely, you will realize the truth, and that truth will either set you free, or place you in hell. Because a love relationship that isn’t loving, is hell. That’s why to me, it is better to not settle for what seems to be something. Look for what IS good, not for what appears to be good!!! dwp

Reciprocal Radiance

Today my wife and I took a drive to New Hope, Pa. where I used to live, to have lunch and hang out for a little while. When we arrived, there was no place at all to park, so I drove to a place where I could pay. As I drove in, I waved to a car that was on its way out, to stop. A very pleasant looking woman opened her window. I smiled at her and said “excuse me dear, can you tell me how it works here to park?” She smiled so beautifully and said, I just got married yesterday, so I have this pass that will allow you to park here all day long without any payment! They leaned over, blew me a kiss, and handed me the piece of paper! I believe the woman sitting next to her was her lovely new bride; they looked so so ecstatic, which to me was a beautiful thing. Because I love to see people celebrating their happiness!!

I turned to my wife and said, you see? that’s what I mean. Because it was just a week or so ago that I was inspired to write another book about something I’m feeling very strongly about these days, which is that: We are the world that we create. No matter what it is that happens in your world, you are pretty much the only one who can make it true or false, that will either give it energy, or kill it. You are the one who decides what your power is going to do. You are the one who makes yourself happy, or unhappy. Nobody else can be blamed, because what happens to you mostly has to do with you. Thats why if you don’t like how something is playing out in your life, then all you have to do is change it. Nothing in life is written in stone, unless you decide that is. Our belief systems either make us, or break us. But it is once again we, and only we, who determine how something is going to unfold. I don’t believe that anything is a coincidence.

The reason why I feel so strongly is because these kinds of things are happening to me all the time & quite effortlessly I might add, and I do not think they are accidental. I think behavior is karmic. In other words, if you bring goodness, happiness and love to life situations, then those things will likely be reciprocated. I mean, why wouldn’t they? If your heart is happy and joyous, and smiling, then people will naturally pick up that special thing that’s going on in you, and they will want to smile & be a part of that happiness with you. It makes sense, because feeling good is contagious. And most people like it. Of course there are some people who think it’s a very scary & frightening task. That’s why I’m going to start writing my next book ASAP. And I am so excited to share the many worldly adventures that I have had the privilege to learn and experience; the extraordinary beauty of karmic appeal, and reciprocal radiance. If you trust it, you will discover something truly special about yourself that you never knew before! dwp

You Can’t Please Everybody

There is a saying “You can’t please everybody.” But to me, the accent is wrong. It is not about pleasing everybody, it’s about being true to who you are. If you are a good honest person, if your heart is in the right place, then chances are people will like you. There should not be too much concern about it because people generally like those who are likable. The people who should be concerned are those who have to make an effort to please others, those who are not likable, whose hearts are not in the right place…so they have that concern, and they should have it too. They have to hide who they are. They have to be somebody that they aren’t. They cannot be themselves because they fear they will not be accepted. But the people who are playing this hide and seek game with themselves and others are truly flirting with great danger. You may or may not like who a person is, but it is extremely unwise to not know who somebody is. I refuse to concern myself about whether I am liked. My concern is to be true to myself, and honest with those I love. And just let the cards fall where they must. I don’t care if you approve of me. I don’t even expect anybody to. If somebody does then it is good. If not, it is also good. There is nothing worse than being deceptive because you are not being true; not to the other, but to yourself! Deception breaks hearts, it destroys families & marriages & all kinds of relationships. But nobody can accuse you of doing them wrong if you have always showed them who you are. The idea is to be true. People can like you, or not like you. There is nothing that can be done about it because you are who you are, howsoever that is. Be true not to being false, but to who you so beautifully are. dwp 9/19/19

A Valentine is whatever brings you the greatest happiness in this life. Since the beginning of time the teachers have been saying that a Valentine must be a person simply because the only love that they are aware of is the one that is romantic. Love is actually a relationship with joy. It is a passionate kind of peace and warmth that resides within you, that makes you happy, that makes you want to sing and dance. Love can of course include the hand of your beloved, the touch that is closest to your heart, but do not think that it is needed. Love does not require another person. It does not require a pet, or for that matter, family. It only requires you. It is a very old misunderstanding that love needs somebody else in order to happen, or be real. The truth is that love is your song. It is of course tremendously beautiful to celebrate such an experience with a person you’re deeply in love with, but it is not necessary. You must first become love before you can be in love. dwp

A Question of Love

Somebody asked: Can you make a person love you? My response was: Of course you can. It is as easy as making a person hate you. Neither one requires great skill. If a person wants to be attractive to others, all they have to do is stop being unattractive. People have a tendency to attract those who are easy to love. And similarly feel disenchanted by those who aren’t. But with respect to the result of how others will respond to you, it is pretty much directly related to you, yes first Person. First person means that you have an awful lot to do with how things happen with you. If you are kind, thoughtful & loving to others, chances are good that you’ll be received in a similar manner. If you are sincere, it is probable that others will also be sincere. If you are a cheater, then you will be cheated. If you are a liar, then you will be lied to. If you are a lover, the world will love you. In other words, it is not about the other, it is about you. We determine our fate. If we want our energy to be one that is loving, then somebody has to initiate that love. We must clear away everything else, and set the stage for that love. If there is anybody that is against it, or anything that has the intent to poison it, then it must be eliminated because love is much too fragile a flower. And it happens this way with hatred also, even though it isn’t nearly as delicate. If it is what you give your energy to, then it will be what you’ll have in your world. That’s why if it’s love you wish to reap, then it should be love that you sow. If you choose however, to reap hatred instead, then you will have to energize other things. It not to be judgmental, it is simply to understand that we are the captains of our own ships, and as such, we are responsible to make every decision about every ocean that we are going to travel. dwp

Being Thankful

I am enormously thankful for my family, and my friends, all of whom I adore and cherish, but I feel especially thankful to love, for loving and embracing me as only she could. Life has taught me that love is truly the greatest blessing, that all good things arise from the foundation of love; every smile, happiness, celebration and laughter, playfulness, flower, fragrance, food drink, song and dance…they all begin with, and in, the garden of love. So I want to take this moment to warmly & graciously thank Love, for showing me the way, and for bringing so many wonderfully loving people into my life, but mostly for teaching me that while there are oh so many paths in this world to take, Love is the only one that will bring you home cured. I thank you so much Love, for teaching me that! dwp
