Are You Following Your Inner Moonlight?

Do you have a dream? What are you doing here on earth? What is your mission? Do you know where you are going? Do you know how you are going to get there?

If you have an inner moonlight, you must not hide it. You must nurture it. You must live it. You must follow it. You must work it. As Allen Ginsberg once said, “Follow your inner moonlight; don’t hide the madness.” If you want to pass your examination, you must follow your inner moonlight. You must do your own thing. Do not allow anything to stop you from following your inner moonlight. Yes, sometimes it is hard to do, but if you have the courage to follow it, you will accomplish your dreams.

“A purposeless life is a meaningless life. And a meaningless life is a fruitless life. And a fruitless life is a hopeless life.”

Remember, your dream is not going to happen by accident. If you want it to happen, you must do your part. You must take action. You must listen to yourself. You must not allow people to talk you out of your dream. It is your dream. To keep it, you must protect it from negative thoughts. Do not let negative thoughts stand in your way. Do not ignore yourself. You have what it takes to succeed in your life. You have what it takes to live a better life. But you have got to listen to your inner moonlight. You have got to listen to your inner self. Do not listen to other people who are trying to talk you out of your life.

Don’t listen to them. Do not listen to negative people. If you want to make your dream happen, you must follow the dream in your heart. It is there for a purpose. And you must follow that purpose to the gate of heaven. You must nurture it. You must not hide your purpose. Because a purposeless life is a meaningless life. And a meaningless life is a fruitless life. And a fruitless life is a hopeless life. Do not be scared. You can always change your life. The choice is yours.

“No Heart Has Ever Suffered When It Goes In Search Of Its Dreams”

“Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams…”- Paulo Coelho

Do not be afraid to try. Life is about trying. It is about falling down. It is about expecting. It is about creating ourselves. It is not about finding ourselves. It is about really living our lives.

If that is the case, why are so many of us not living our lives? Because we don’t want to offend other people. We want other people to love us. We want other people to be happy with us. Above all, we don’t want to fail. Yes, we don’t want to fail. But ask yourself, is it possible to walk without first learning how to stand, then walk?

“If you are not living your life, you are living your fears.”

Paulo Coelho is right when he writes, “There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.” “People are not living their lives because they are living their fears.” Les Brown said, Too many of us are not living our dreams because we are living our fears.” Remember, you are not here to live your fears; you are here to live your life. Do not let your fears stop you from pursuing your dreams. Do not let doubts stop you from living your real life. Do not let your past disappointments stop you from loving yourself. You are here to create your life. You were not created to just exist. You were created to really live your life. Whether people like it or not, you must do everything within your power to make it happen. Live your life. And live boldly!
