Life is like a…

I want you to quite simply think of your life and your life experiences as a burning hot fire…

A fire is both good and bad. It produces heat that can save life or end it. It can be extremely destructive and cause darkness and destruction or it can be controlled and tamed to produce a wonderful source of light. Fire is BOTH good and bad.

Think of the way you deal with life as a fire. You can jump into the fire and burn yourself. You can steer clear of a fire and feel nothing. And finally you can dance with the fire, feeling it’s heat, using its energy and quite simply understanding it without it causing any harm whatsoever.

Now what does this have to do with life???


You can be reckless and inpatient. You can be angry and spiteful. You can rude and uncaring. You can be the darkness and the poison. All of these actions and emotions you allow to enter your life and take over you are exactly like running into a hot fire and either burning yourself or dying. You will get nowhere in life acting like this. You are just producing a huge amount of karma and issues that you don’t need to be continuously dealing with.

You can also be scared and insecure. You can be lazy and negative. You can be comfortable and easy going. You can be unbothered and uninterested. These feelings and actions would lead you to walk around the fire and to steer clear of it completely. This way of life will give you no experience or gain. You don’t learn unless you are curious and interested. This is basically like being on auto pilot and riding through life just being comfortable. This style of life is pointless, it creates no success.

Finally you could be understanding and loving. You could be patient and curious. You can be adventurous and aware. You can positive and helpful. These feelings and emotions would lead you to dance with the fire. To dance with the fire you can learn the fire. Learning about the fire and what it can do will greatly increase your chances of success in life. The fire brings light, it brings energy, it brings warmth and happiness. The fire is a useful tool but it does require a little understanding, patience and effort to learn how to dance with it. It is not for the lazy or the non doers in life. Take risks in life and be ready to feel a burn here and there but just be knowing that you will eventually be able to control and cradle the fire for your needs and growth.

You choose your path in life. Don’t be upset if it doesn’t go the way you want it to go. Evaluate your actions and beliefs. Could you be a kinder person? More adventurous? Harder working? More considerate? Selfless?

All actions have consequences. Think about what you are manifesting isn’t your own existence. Be conscious of your actions. Every actions has an equal reaction, remember that…

Be wise

Don’t tell lies

Take a chance

And learn to dance

Yours truly


Om Shanti
