Thoughts I Live By


~My Personal Creed~

created on February 12, 2010

“Today I release myself from the need to judge anyone, particularly those who are most dissimilar to me. Rather than reacting in a spirit of anger or hate to those who disagree with me or who insult me, I will ask myself, ‘What can I learn from this experience?’ I will allow myself to be a reflection of the spiritual essence within me. I will release myself from every lie, every bitter thought, and every preconceived idea that has taken root within my mind. I will allow those who cross my path to have the same freedom that I give myself. On this day I will live every moment to its fullest. If any adversity or obstacle should come my way, I will meet it with fortitude and strength. I am whole, evolved, and complete within myself. The choices I make today will the ones that are best for me. If others do not accept my choices, that is a choice they are free to make and part of their journey, not mine. I will walk away from those who react to the world and/or its inhabitants with bitterness, hostility, hatred, judgement, envy, criticism, greed, and/or resentment, for I choose to surround myself only with those who are capable of kindness, love, honesty, empathy, and compassion.”

~On Healing & Connecting~

February 2010

“I believe one way to heal our minds, bodies, and souls is through the spiritual connections that we form with other people. Yet, these connections can only be sustained without creating negativity and tension when they are formed between or among those who are like-minded. Those who are enveloped in their own darkness cannot be brought into the light until they seek it for themselves.”

~On Love~

“For every love that never was, there is a love waiting to unfold.”

    Alexis –
    Thank you for the wonderfully expressed thoughts from your heart. Part of the secret to life is “I will allow myself to be a reflection of the spiritual essence within me. I will release myself from every lie, every bitter thought, and every preconceived idea that has taken root within my mind. I will allow those who cross my path to have the same freedom that I give myself.- Yes, to be able to release ourselves from the lies, bitter thoughts and preconceived thoughts and ideas frees us to be who God created us to be and walk in total freedom. It is a road we all must travel. Thank you again, and God Bless You, Alexis.

    Imagine how amazing the world would be if we all lived by the very words you post… If the feelings of bitterness, hatred, judgment, envy, criticism, greed, and all that would just be set aside and put away so we all could really enjoy the true meaning of life. So beautifully expressed… thank you for sharing.
