self-energy or fear?…:-)

here’s my answer: Nature’s beauty and temporary silence… btw, what’s yours?… 🙂

motto:”You don’t always need to leave your room, sit at your table and listen, simply wait, just learn to become quiet, still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked: it has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet…”(Franz Kafka)

Our true self is our essential nature – a source of creation, potentiality, consciousness – seeking expression, just like flowers growing against thick stone walls… 🙂 We’re made of knowledge, silence, simplicity and bliss, and after we’ve found them, it’s up to us to look for a fair balance and to settle a certain harmony. Once we’ve discovered our inner self, we can start dreaming and get to fulfill our wishes, ’cause there’s no separation between our dreams and our personal energy. Thus, we can anticipate situations, circumstances, things, behaviours, attitudes, responses. We all need approval and power to control external factors, otherwise fear shows up and it means no compulsion to control or to struggle for approval. Our deep self is both our soul and spirit, completely free, immune, fearless, independent – ready for any challenge, BUT also humble, admitting that everyone else is the same…

Our energy may be permanent – if based upon our self-knowledge that will draw people and things to us, it can magnetize and support our desires, it’s able to create bonds with our fellows, and bring us mutual joy. Yet, our force of bonding will always flow in and out from genuine LOVE. Last but not least: spending much time outdoors, in the middle of NATURE’s perfect beauty, surrounded by its unique peace, experiencing a quiet state of mind, will give us access to infinite creativity and total freedom – to connect our thoughts, our emotions, our feelings with the universal stillness – away from any possible “turbulences”. Then, once we’ve gotten in touch with our inner-most essence of our being, we’ll set it free of all fears, guilts, and insecurity, since our life energy is our purest and strongest power: the combination of movement and stillness enables us to unleash our creativity in all directions, wherever our dreams take us, and there, nothing could ever overshadow or stop our high spirits… 🙂

Have a dynamic and undaunted weekend, folks! 🙂

  1. Very insightful and full of heart, Mélanie. Especially love that last soaring line. Shine on sister! xoxo

  2. Thanks for sharing this inspirational post, Melanie. Your words are wise and often we forget to take a breath. 🙂

  3. Everything looks so charming. 🙂 {Abrazos}

  4. a charming village and yes, let’s escape from turbulences!

  5. i like your wavelength! 🙂 i try to remind myself of these things, sometimes it gets away form me. thank you for the “breath of fresh air”!

  6. A great post, Mélanie. Loved reading your thoughts and looking at your beautiful photo gallery. I’ve had a perfect weekend, especially when just sitting watching the waves and listening to the ocean. 🙂

  7. “…our life energy is our purest and strongest power” – Something to ponder on. 😀

  8. Melanie, you have a wonderful way with words. I love still silence – it gives me time to think and some of my best writing sessions is when there is total silence.

  9. I like to have a time without radio, tv, books or internet (excepto to send documents), a time of tranquility, although I think in Kafka’s time, it was easier to be disconnected than now, where every bit of data is flowing across every device. Now I’m travelling, greetings from the cities of the Pacific Ocean Mélanita 🙂

  10. So beautiful, Melanie. Leslie

  11. Love, love, love medieval European villages such as Puycelsi. Even the scarecrow in the one photo looks like he lost his head over it.

    • me, too, également… btw, some of the most famous and pittoresque “bastides” are here, in our Midi-Pyrénées region… 🙂 oh, I did take that photo for the scarecrow! 😉

  12. C’est magnifique, mon amie! A beautiful post, Mélanie!

  13. Kafka’s words always ring true. I particularly loved reading your philosophy on all things true… for that is what it boils down too. When one can embrace one’s true self, the rest can follow. I wish you love and laughter and joy this weekend. As always! 🙂

  14. I love this motto you shared!!! Beautiful post all around, as usual. Have a great weekend! ❤ ❤ ❤

  15. Fotografii, una și una… Ce locuri minunate! Emană atâta căldură… florile, străduțele pietruite, clădirile rustice, obloanele colorate, măsuțele și scaunele de pe lângă vreo intrare, zidurile acoperite de iederă… câtă delicatețe și intimitate. Cosiness and sheer beauty of places… and people! 🙂

    • multumesc, Nicole! îti confirm ca descrierea-ti virtuala coincide cu cea reala… de fapt, regiunea noastra Midi-Pyrénées e atât de pitoreasca, interesanta, placuta, ca ma tot “minunez” de niste ani… 🙂

  16. Wishing you the same. I can feel your high spirits from here.
