Happiness Quotes and Inspiration

All the world’s a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances …
William Shakespeare

Happiness is much like love it is misunderstood. It is confused with many different kinds of experiences that don’t really relate to its true identity. Happiness is not so much about the highs that rush through your physical body and stimulate your brain. Happiness is more of a subtle embrace that takes you on a ride of joy and beauty. Not the kind of pleasure we gain from superficial things or synthetic chemicals or sex but more so from the ever lasting simplicities that wonders throughout your being… happiness is what makes you smile deep from within. And it lasts, it switches on when you reflect back to it and fills your imagination with magic. 

Happiness is Like a Butterfly, is one way I relate to my feelings and expand on my skills to “Connect My Mind to My Soul”. Let’s talk about what happiness means to you and how metaphors support your ability to fulfill your greatest desires.  I love Metaphors and playing with language. It is the writer in me but more so it supports my passion in exploring ways to express myself.  I love being creative… expression in all mediums has supported my healing in many aspects of my life, especially growing through grief and trauma. 
Metaphors help us to grow in thought and imagery to expand the imagination. It is no secret that the mind and visualization is a significant key in helping us get closer to our goals and dreams. Interestingly enough as simple as it may seem many people are challenged with this ability. Like most things in life not everyone is naturally inclined to see things in pictures in their mind. This was the reason I created the Visual Vortex, your virtual and spiritual GPS. To help you begin the natural process of visualization.

Over the coming weeks I will bring you more tools, meditation and exercises on how to “Master Your Universe” with color, images, sound, music and words.

Food For Thought

What is a metaphor? A metaphor is a figure of speech that, for rhetorical effect, directly refers to one thing by mentioning another. It may provide (or obscure) clarity or identify hidden similarities between two different ideas. Metaphors are often compared with other types of figurative language, such as antithesis, hyperbole, metonymy, and simile. One of the most commonly cited examples of a metaphor in English literature comes from the “All the world’s a stage”. A quote by William Shakespeare. 

Let’s go on a journey with the power of poetry…. after you have read it, close your eyes and image what happiness means to you. 

Happiness – The Poem

Happiness is like a butterfly; it evolves out of a cocoon…

Like magic she appears and flutters out into the sky,

The butterfly is luminous, expanding into the light, 

Of ultimate beauty…

You can’t catch and hold happiness

Nor keep it for forever, saving it for tomorrow

Likewise for the butterfly, if you hold her tight she will die…

In the brilliance of her magic, the butterfly exists and lives

But like the sun, a butterfly dies at the end of the day…

Happiness is just like the butterfly,

Rising to the ultimate expression of perfection

To be appreciated, now.

At the end of the day she closes her eyes

But, know that tomorrow a birth of a butterfly is born

The birth of a new day will exist

And happiness will come again, filling your heart with joy…

Happiness comes and happiness goes

But trust that it exists in the smallest of gifts

Delicate, precious and sometimes hard to find…

Happiness, like the butterfly is, a state of awareness,

Waiting to smile in your heart, 

Living in the birth of the dawn…
