As I was thinking about what to write today, the word warrior came in front of me. Haven’t you heard people telling you, in my case, my teacher uses these words sometimes, have the warrior spirit, he says. How does one have the warrior spirit in them? Do we all have it? Do we have it but we don’t access it? I believe we are all born with it but then somewhere along the way the spirit dies, or circumstances in our life cloud this part in us and then we become victims. Oh! The real, boring victim card we play. It’s not fun being the victim. If you want some adventure, then get the warrior spirit back. Nothing is impossible. Everything is doable. Fight for the truth. Fight for what’s important in your life. Don’t give in to everyones demands. Be yourself, everyone else is taken. Don’t allow people to trample over you. Stand up for yourself. Be the warrior.

If we don’t fight for whats right, then who will? Who is going to come and save you from all your troubles? If something is not making sense in your life, make the change. Don’t be a tree. You can move. You can make changes. You can have discussions. If none of this works, then fight for what you want. It’s better to fight and die than live a half life. Imagine coming to the end of your life and realising that you didn’t do what you wanted to do. You were listening to everyone else’s advice but yours and didn’t listen to your heart or even if you did you soon went back to everyones else’s advice. It takes courage to listen to your heart. It takes courage to say, screw all of you, I am doing what I want. It takes courage to face death straight in the eye and say if I have to die tomorrow I should be okay dying. It takes courage to put your foot down and be ready to lose it all in the face of uncertainty, knowing very well you might have to start from scratch, start from the bottom. But what if by standing up for yourself, you actually don’t lose much, you actually gain a lot. Yes, you can’t do things with this expectation but my teacher says if your heart is right, the world is alright. So, if you’re doing things from a pure space, if you’re doing things without any expectations, you’re doing it for yourself, you’re coming from your heart space, then I guarantee you nothing will go wrong. You will figure it out but don’t lose the warrior spirit in you. Keep it alive. It is this spirit that is going to take you places.

Oh the places you’ll go! I love this book and it was one of the first books I bought for my daughter when she was born.

Today is your day.
You’re off to Great Places!
You’re off and away!

You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself
any direction you choose.
You’re on your own. And you know what you know.
And YOU are the guy who’ll decide where to go.

You’ll look up and down streets. Look ’em over with care.
About some you will say, “I don’t choose to go there.”
With your head full of brains and your shoes full of feet,
you’re too smart to go down any not-so-good street.

And you may not find any
you’ll want to go down.
In that case, of course,
you’ll head straight out of town.

It’s opener there
in the wide open air.

Out there things can happen
and frequently do
to people as brainy
and footsy as you.

And then things start to happen,
don’t worry. Don’t stew.
Just go right along.
You’ll start happening too.


You’ll be on y our way up!
You’ll be seeing great sights!
You’ll join the high fliers
who soar to high heights.

You won’t lag behind, because you’ll have the speed.
You’ll pass the whole gang and you’ll soon take the lead.
Wherever you fly, you’ll be best of the best.
Wherever you go, you will top all the rest.

Except when you don’t.
Because, sometimes, you won’t.

I’m sorry to say so
but, sadly, it’s true
that Bang-ups
and Hang-ups
can happen to you.

You can get all hung up
in a prickle-ly perch.
And your gang will fly on.
You’ll be left in a Lurch.

You’ll come down from the Lurch
with an unpleasant bump.
And the chances are, then,
that you’ll be in a Slump.

And when you’re in a Slump,
you’re not in for much fun.
Un-slumping yourself
is not easily done.

You will come to a place where the streets are not marked.
Some windows are lighted. But mostly they’re darked.
A place you could sprain both your elbow and chin!
Do you dare to stay out? Do you dare to go in?
How much can you lose? How much can you win?

And IF you go in, should you turn left or right…
or right-and-three-quarters? Or, maybe, not quite?
Or go around back and sneak in from behind?
Simple it’s not, I’m afraid you will find,
for a mind-maker-upper to make up his mind.

You can get so confused
that you’ll start in to race
down long wiggled roads at a break-necking pace
and grind on for miles cross weirdish wild space,
headed, I fear, toward a most useless place.
The Waiting Place…

…for people just waiting.
Waiting for a train to go
or a bus to come, or a plane to go
or the mail to come, or the rain to go
or the phone to ring, or the snow to snow
or the waiting around for a Yes or No
or waiting for their hair to grow.
Everyone is just waiting.

Waiting for the fish to bite
or waiting for the wind to fly a kite
or waiting around for Friday night
or waiting, perhaps, for their Uncle Jake
or a pot to boil, or a Better Break
or a string of pearls, or a pair of pants
or a wig with curls, or Another Chance.
Everyone is just waiting.

That’s not for you!

Somehow you’ll escape
all that waiting and staying
You’ll find the bright places
where Boom Bands are playing.

With banner flip-flapping,
once more you’ll ride high!
Ready for anything under the sky.
Ready because you’re that kind of a guy!

Oh, the places you’ll go! There is fun to be done!
There are points to be scored. There are games to be won.
And the magical things you can do with that ball
will make you the winning-est winner of all.
Fame! You’ll be as famous as famous can be,
with the whole wide world watching you win on TV.

Except when they don’t
Because, sometimes they won’t.

I’m afraid that some times
you’ll play lonely games too.
Games you can’t win
’cause you’ll play against you.

All Alone!
Whether you like it or not,
Alone will be something
you’ll be quite a lot.

And when you’re alone, there’s a very good chance
you’ll meet things that scare you right out of your pants.
There are some, down the road between hither and yon,
that can scare you so much you won’t want to go on.

But on you will go
though the weather be foul.
On you will go
though your enemies prowl.
On you will go
though the Hakken-Kraks howl.
Onward up many
a frightening creek,
though your arms may get sore
and your sneakers may leak.

On and on you will hike,
And I know you’ll hike far
and face up to your problems
whatever they are.

You’ll get mixed up, of course,
as you already know.
You’ll get mixed up
with many strange birds as you go.
So be sure when you step.
Step with care and great tact
and remember that Life’s
a Great Balancing Act.
Just never foget to be dexterous and deft.
And never mix up your right foot with your left.

And will you succeed?
Yes! You will, indeed!
(98 and 3/4 percent guaranteed.)


be your name Buxbaum or Bixby or Bray
or Mordecai Ali Van Allen O’Shea,
You’re off the Great Places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting.
So…get on your way!

Dr Seuss.

It’s a wonderful place to be in where nothing can shake you, nothing can break you, nothing anyone says can change your stance. You’re so strong and I believe in times like these, you’re wearing a shield. A shield thats protecting you because you know this time you’re doing things from the heart space and when you do things from that space, you’re divinely protected. No one and nothing can shatter your soul.

Lots of Love,

Miss Light
