Lift those around you…

“A creative person is motivated by the desire to achieve, not by the desire to beat others”

Ayn Rand

I changed one word in this amazing quote, but it truly is something to take to heart.  When you achieve something (small or big), and used love, kindness, passion, desire as your motivation, then you create something genuinely pure.  This achievement is surrounded by positive energy that will continue to emit positive vibrations to those, directly and indirectly, involved throughout the universe.  It requires far less energy to lift people up, versus putting them down and keeping them down.  Humans are resilient and capable of anything the imagination can dream up, be someone who encourages, growth, love, happiness, peace, and evolution of the human species.

We are surrounded by them.

Recently my wife’s grandfather and my grandmother passed away.  This is an amazing poem I found for anyone who has doubts, fear or anxiety about death and the afterlife… Their energy lives on through everything and everyone, we are all made from the same energy.

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.
