'The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you - don't go back to sleep' Rumi
The writing that emerged isn't what I'd normally share but it expresses much of what I've learnt from Wayne, and its because of that I share this today - in honour of a man who has made such a difference to so many people's lives, and will continue to do so for years, if not decades, to come.
Let love be your compass
We are all the same.
We all have the capacity to love and hate in equal measure.
Those who choose love choose a harder path.
Those who choose hate have an easier road to travel.
Hate has anger.
Hate has vitriol.
Hate has bullets and other weapons.
Love's only weapon is the open heart - which can't be seen only felt.
Whilst hate defends itself against attach, love opens itself vulnerable to that attach.
Trust and faith are love's only strategies that reinforce the courage to stay strong.
Know love is the only answer.
Know love will win.
Know love is the only winner.
Everyone will realise that in the end.
Those who choose hate will just take a little longer to accept that.
Every day let love be your compass.
Every day see and be grateful of the love in others (ALL others).
Every day remember we each are a reflection of the divine.
What you see in another is as true within you as it is within them.
If there's hate in the world - then somewhere deep inside you there too must be hate.
Even if it's hidden and only heard in the early hours of the morning.
Heal your own hate, and walk the talk with love.
Know as you shine you allow others to too.
Be the way forger.
Know that whilst you may have chosen the harder path that only those able to rise to the challenge start the journey, and make it their own.
Find the music in you, and walk the talk with gratitude.
Let love be your compass.
