Those seem to be the theme this week. Hey…I try to keep up with the times.
Special one this time. A Truth Bomb contributor posted something profound…from her eight year old daughter! Just had to include it.
Dive right in, Amigo!
A Commitment Truth Bomb from Megha Rodriguez:
Commit to what calls you. Lean into it. Trust when your heart calls even if your mind resists. Even if your mind could counter with a million justifications a.k.a. FEAR. Commit. Be comfortable with the discomfort of a momentary interruption in the status quo.
See even if the status quo is discomforting it is some times easier to feel like falling back into is the simple answer. Be able to distinguish between simply the right answer and simply the easy answer. They are not always the same.
A Compassion Truth Bomb from Neemah, Age 8
Compassion is when we love and care for each other no matter what and then see that love flowing all over the world. When people don’t care about each other it just makes big wars. Compassion comes from your heart so we should listen to our hearts. We are all brothers and sisters. If you fight fire with fire it just makes a bigger fire. Live in peace and harmony and love.
Your heart can lead you to anything, you’re the boss of yourself, and know anything is possible with love.
A Looking Back To Look Ahead Truth Bomb from me:
We are often told to look at what’s around us and what’s in front of us, not what’s behind us. I totally agree.
But we have a MEMORY for a reason. It’s the experience we accumulate and how we learn. Without it we have no language, no technology, no progress.
And no relationships with others. All relationships imply a shared past we bring forward to the present.
So the game is to choose which parts of your memory serve you best, and bring those to the forefront. Memories of shame, of pain, of loss…those are not to be ignored. They are to be mourned so we can go forward without dragging them around like a cinder block. There is power in those memories.
And then choose to take the memories of love, pride, achievement, and the knowledge that you made it through whatever it was in one piece and walk forward…proud and free.
A Falling In Love Truth Bomb from Randall Alford:
So many have been deluded and frustrated by the romantic “meme” of falling in love…
May I suggest a slight reframe? Rather than “falling in love,” consider the fragrance of “opening into love.” It’s less about the polarities (up/down, in/out, with/without), and more about the ecstatic ranges of infinite deepening and expansion…
We can be devoured only when we are willing to surrender all preconceptions, expectations, judgments and comparisons. And simply render ourselves fully present, in the provocative innocence of our mature and compassionate hearts.
Sending to all energies of loving affirmation and encouragement!
An Excuses Truth Bomb from Franco Gonzalez:
I have absolutely no time or desire to participate in or give audience to hate. There’s too much potential, possibility and great people out there to collaborate with, to waste a nano-second inside other people’s festering weaknesses and fears.
I’m not interested in listening to the excuses (lies). I’m not buying… anyone’s hate. Take it somewhere else.
If you want to make GOOD THINGS happen, let’s crush it.
And Finally, a Memories Truth Bomb from Melissa Ward:
Take lots of pictures people…. and make sure you are in them I have been going through old photo albums and smiling at the memories. It’s amazing how much we forget about our history.
Which of these Truth Bombs KABOOMED you the hardest?
