I want to know | The Invitation | By Oriah

It doesn’t interest me
what you do for a living.

I want to know
what you ache for
and if you dare to dream
of meeting your heart’s longing.

It doesn’t interest me
how old you are.

I want to know
if you will risk
looking like a fool
for love
for your dream
for the adventure of being alive.

It doesn’t interest me
what planets are
squaring your moon…

I want to know
if you have touched
the centre of your own sorrow
if you have been opened
by life’s betrayals
or have become shrivelled and closed
from fear of further pain.

I want to know
if you can sit with pain
mine or your own
without moving to hide it
or fade it
or fix it.

I want to know
if you can be with joy
mine or your own
if you can dance with wildness
and let the ecstasy fill you
to the tips of your fingers and toes
without cautioning us
to be careful
to be realistic
to remember the limitations
of being human.

It doesn’t interest me
if the story you are telling me
is true.

I want to know if you can
disappoint another
to be true to yourself.

If you can bear
the accusation of betrayal
and not betray your own soul.

If you can be faithless
and therefore trustworthy.
I want to know if you can see Beauty
even when it is not pretty
every day.

And if you can source your own life
from its presence.
I want to know
if you can live with failure
yours and mine
and still stand at the edge of the lake
and shout to the silver of the full moon,
“Yes.”
It doesn’t interest me
to know where you live
or how much money you have.

I want to know if you can get up
after the night of grief and despair
weary and bruised to the bone
and do what needs to be done
to feed the children.

It doesn’t interest me
who you know
or how you came to be here.
I want to know if you will stand
in the centre of the fire
with me
and not shrink back.

It doesn’t interest me
where or what or with whom
you have studied.
l
I want to know
what sustains you
from the inside
when all else falls away.

I want to know
if you can be alone
with yourself
and if you truly like
the company you keep
in the empty moments.

You are Great – There is Something Magnificent About You

image

“I believe that you’re great,
that there’s something magnificent about you.
Regardless of what has happened to you in your life,
Regardless of how young or how old you think you might be,
The moment you begin to think properly,
There’s something that is within you,
There’s power within you,
That’s greater than the world.
It will begin to emerge.
It will take over your life.
It will feed you. It will clothe you.
It will guide you,
Protect you,
Direct you,
Sustain your very existence, if you let it.”  —Michael Beckwith

Be the best version of yourself

I remember one quote of steve Jobs
“We’re here to put a dent in the universe. Otherwise why else even be here?”
This is the words which always keep igniting me to always for the best and i believe always be the best version of myself.

Being the best person that you can be is the way of the gentleman.

A man cannot be perfect, but striving towards the basic core of humanity and decency is what makes a gentleman, once you dig beneath the suits and the smiles. A true gentleman knows his limits and keeps trying to stretch them, going further to both improve himself and to aid other people in whatever way he can.

Find your best qualities and work on them.
Find your worst qualities and work on trying to improve them.

The real secret of how to be a gentleman lies in being yourself—but the best version of yourself that you can work towards and improve on so you can be the best ‘you’ you can be.

Follow Your Soul’s Voice : That speaks your heart’s truest truth

There is a voice within you that goes beyond your rapid thoughts, beyond what is right or wrong by anyone’s standards.

There is a still voice within that speaks your heart’s truest truth.
@shashiaansoo (Click to Tweet!)

That voice is the soul voice. That voice is the voice of truth. It guides you to what is right for you in this moment.

At times though, let’s be real, it’s hard to hear. We have our mind’s chatter, our fears, what we “should do,” what we “shouldn’t do.” We battle the demons of fear, and we can’t hear the guidance within. I get it.

When making big decisions in life, it’s essential to take time to go within. Light a candle. Take some alone time. Ask for guidance from a wise friend or mentor, but still go within.

Ask your soul, “What is true for me?” Ask your soul, “What feels right?” “What feels good?” Allow the answer to come up. It might or might not be what you want to hear, but be open to what is best for you.

The soul doesn’t think about temporary or quick fixes. The soul cares about your soul’s growth. The soul cares about sustainable happiness and peace.

What is your soul saying to you?

Write down the messages that come up for you. Share in the comments below if you feel inspired.

Motorcycle Hand Signals You Should Know

If you’re a new motorcyclist or often find yourself driving behind one, you may wonder about the different hand signals used and want to know what they mean. For new motorcyclists or those traveling in groups, it’s important to know what these hand signals mean so that you can communicate properly while driving.
How do you signal a left turn? How do you let someone know that you’re about to stop? How do you tell your motorcycle group that they need to get in single file? All of those motorcycle hand signals and more can be found on this chart. All motorcycles are supposed to be equipped with a lamp-type turn signal system, but just like with a car or truck these lights can go out. In a siltation like this, these hand signals are even more important.
If you drive any other type of automobile, it’s still important to know some of these motorcycle hand signals. If you’re driving behind a motorcyclist without working lights, you should know if they’re signaling a left or right turn . Even signals like “hazard in roadway,” “turn signal on,” and “cops ahead” can really be helpful.
Is there a hand signal that you often see motorcyclists using? If you’ve found this infographic helpful, be sure to share the knowledge.
