Onward, Upward, Forward to a Life on Fire

by Terez Hartmann

Answering the Call

There is an ever-present call that stirs in the hearts of all who would but listen…

For some, it is a soft, subtle nudge or gentle whisper; yet for others, it is a full-blown symphony of anthemic proportions, subdued only when its melody is fully embraced and its invitation is answered with a resounding “YES!”

This is the call of the gypsy spirit: The part in each of us that revels in exploration, discovery, and the experience of what it means to feel fully alive and boundlessly free. While our daily creature comforts and routines can provide a jumping-off point of perceived security and stability, a soul who gives herself/himself permission to reach and venture onward, upward, and forward into the new, the different, and the unexplored, often comes away far richer, far brighter, and far bigger than one living for bread and water alone.

Do you hear the call of YOUR gypsy spirit?  Perhaps it is time to answer it!

Gypsy Spirit

Gypsy spirit, I hear you call to me
Like a whisper on the wind
Tales of new lands, unraveling mysteries
No beginning and no end

I hear you, I hear you
I feel, I feel you…

Gypsy spirit, with open arms, you welcome me
Your music dancing in my soul
A life, a love without walls, fences, boundaries
Calling me home

I hear you, I hear you
I know you, I know you…

So I dance and I spin
Venture forth and within
I embrace and I
I hear it—the call…

The call of my gypsy spirit

Gypsy fire, warm my soul
Like a blanket on a cold, dark night
Then you blaze, blaze with passion, passion
Deeper truths in delight!

Gypsy spirit, I hear you call to me
Like a whisper on the wind
Gypsy spirit, we are one and the same
No beginning




The Bottom Line: Onward, Upward, Forward to a Life on FIRE!

Life is meant to be lived, and your fire is meant to grow and expand ever outward!  Rather than cling to what has been and resist your soul’s natural flow to expand into new territory, can you imagine how your life can feel if you decided to go willingly?

  • Journey to new corners of our beautiful planet!
  • Savor new flavors, textures, and experiences!
  • Feast your eyes and ears upon a vision or melody unknown to you!
  • Explore and cultivate new skills and abilities!
  • Let your relationships expand and blossom into more…
  • …And dare to allow your inner fire to burn brighter and bolder than ever before!

Here’s to living life on FIRE as you move ever onward, upward, and forward along your path of least resistance toward your greatest joy and becoming!

Gypsy spirits unite!!!
