giving advice - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
Love, what's convenient and what's right is rarely the same thing. To shy away, feeling awkward, when someone is in need of help, is a form of social cowardice. I guess we all need to choose how we exert ourselves and for whom, but for an old friend, someone who loves you, promise me you'll try a little harder?
Be a spirit in the dark, not a darkness of the spirit, for then you can bring your light to others. Seek the light with utter relentlessness, walking with determination, gratitude and joy. Let bitterness fall to the ground and not from your lips. Let the ego be your pride in how you serve and never simply serve the ego. Let your heart seek joy and learn to sing with courage and simple truth. Let the ways of love be your guide over the tongues of men. Listen with warm eyes rather than watch, ask your heart for guidance. Seek to be one who heals and seek those who heal. Always ask, "Why?" Always try to see how ideas can be combined - often things that seem incompatible are two parts of the same puzzle. Learn to be an embodiment of kindness, actively rejecting opportunities to do others harm with voice or action. Do this, and you will find your own child-spirit, your true self waiting within.
