“Why do we have to listen to our hearts?” the boy asked.
“Because, wherever your heart is, that is where you will find your treasure.”

“Don’t try to picture everything bad that could possibly happen. Stick with the situation at hand and ask, “Why is this so unbearable? Why can’t I endure it?” You’ll be embarrassed to answer. Then remind yourself that past and future have no power over you. Only the present.”
The Meditations - Marcus Aurelius (via corseque)

Words of wisdom for Men…"A woman is always going to be more energetically powerful than you. She’s always going to be more emotionally powerful than you. And she’s more sexually powerful than you. Period. Forever.She’ll be a Tornado sometimes, She’ll be a Hurricane sometimes, A Flood, a Fire - she’s Nature herself. You can run from that (and become lost), You can try to control her (unsuccessfully), You can be rigid about it (and be broken),Or you can stand in your absolute masculine presence and do your best to serve her heart. There will be some times that you will distinctly see how you are serving her and the rest of the time…she will be trusting you - she will be growing in the trust of your depth. You have a gift to give your woman - and she wants to receive it. Feel the truth of that. Stay in the depth of your gift and your truth even while she is in the truth of her feminine nature. She will burn, flow, rain, shine, storm - and through all of it she wants to experience your presence. The gift you receive is the opportunity to face death - death of ego and a window to life and pleasure and truth…but only if you remain present”

Words of wisdom for Men…

"A woman is always going to be more energetically powerful than you. She’s always going to be more emotionally powerful than you. And she’s more sexually powerful than you. Period. Forever.
She’ll be a Tornado sometimes, 
She’ll be a Hurricane sometimes, 
A Flood, a Fire - she’s Nature herself. 
You can run from that (and become lost), 
You can try to control her (unsuccessfully), 
You can be rigid about it (and be broken),
Or you can stand in your absolute masculine presence and do your best to serve her heart. There will be some times that you will distinctly see how you are serving her and the rest of the time…she will be trusting you - she will be growing in the trust of your depth. You have a gift to give your woman - and she wants to receive it. Feel the truth of that. 
Stay in the depth of your gift and your truth even while she is in the truth of her feminine nature. She will burn, flow, rain, shine, storm - and through all of it she wants to experience your presence. 
The gift you receive is the opportunity to face death - death of ego and a window to life and pleasure and truth…
but only if you remain present”
