Our True Nature

 

Stubborn

My daughter sent this to me and I had to share it. This is such a powerful picture and message. The truth in it is profound. How many times do we turn away from each other when we disagree or argue or fight, needing or wanting to hold onto an issue in a stubborn effort to be right. Yet, deep inside, the spirit of our true nature still yearns to connect and make what is really important the issue…forgiveness and love. For others…and ourselves.

This picture, to me, looks like the adults are acting like children and the children are acting more like the adult. Something to ponder….

Love, Light, and Blessings to you all!!

“The eye sees only what the mind is prepared to comprehend.” ~Henri Bergson, Philosopher

Compre2.jpg

This quote has been the subject of many hours of ponder and musing. In its own words, it seems simple…but is it really? Must we see first then, to comprehend…or must we comprehend in order to see. If the eye sees only what we can comprehend…then how do we expand that limitation to be able to comprehend what we have yet to see. And isn’t that what invention does? Comprehension, or understanding must come in the inventor’s mind before the eye can see what an inventor creates. Right?

Can we comprehend that we can see much more than we do with the sight we look through every day?

Pondering….

Blessings to you all today!!

Quote For The Day

 

“Whatever you are physically…male or female, strong or weak, ill or healthy–all those things matter less than what your heart contains. If you have the soul of a warrior, you are a warrior. All those other things, they are the glass that contains the lamp, but YOU are the light inside.”  ~ Cassandra Clare

“What A Long Strange Trip It’s Been”

 

“Sometimes the light’s all shinin’ on me,
Other times I can barely see,

Lately it occurs to me, What a long, strange trip it’s been.”

-Lyrics for “Truckin’” by Jerry Garcia of The Grateful Dead

WR2.jpg

These lyrics make me smile, almost laugh (almost!), as they describe the journey I have been on these last couple of years all too well. It has, indeed, been a long, strange ride…and as with most of life’s strange rides, we almost always end up somewhere we had no idea we were going to. If only we could remember this at the onset of the ride! That somehow, no matter how long, winding, arduous, or exhausting the road is…it most assuredly is leading us somewhere. So, we keep on truckin’.

Which, fortunately, I am doing with much more health, energy, and vigor today. I am not back up to the level I would like to be…but I am deeply grateful for the level of restored health and well-being I am experiencing.

Words-2.jpg

And I have so missed this wonderful place, where thoughts and words swirl with meaning and life and energy…igniting more thought, more words, and connection and healing. I had to go into a sort of seclusion during this journey of the dark night of the soul, and at times had thought I had lost my words. But sometimes going within…way within…is a necessary path. I had to embrace that path and follow it in order to get to the next turn…not resist it, which of course I initially wanted to do. But resistance only slows the walk on the path…so I turned around and trod that path with all my might, and lo and behold!, I arrived somewhere!

I think the thing we lose sight of the most, when going through difficulties, is that…there IS a destination at the end of the path. We do not go through difficulties and end up…nowhere. There really is a different reality beyond the difficulty.

The thing is…we can’t possibly see what that reality will be because whatever the difficulty we are experiencing will change us along the way. It is meant to change us…for out of adversity comes strength and clarity and direction. Adversity challenges us to see ourselves and what we are going through differently than before. It dares us to see our lives and what is in them through a different perception…so how could that not change us?  What we need do is know that change is ultimately good. It can be terrible and frightening, but that too shall pass, and as all things do, it will morph into something else. And we will live through those moments…flowing on to the next…and on, and on…

I look forward to these next moments…and coming back here to catch up on your lives and thoughts…and perhaps share a few more of my own.

Much Love and Gratitude to all of you who have continued to read the blog and ask about me. It is astounding to see traffic still flowing here…it makes my heart pound and my pulse quicken with pleasure and surprise.

I Wish Everyone Love, Light, and Happiness.

Have Faith and Live For Today

 

In this crazy, chaotic, and often times harsh world we live in today, it is sometimes hard to hold on to the belief that there is still good around us. That belief takes Faith…in ourselves and in others. Remember, just because we do not see it does not mean it is not present and lurking, waiting to “be seen”. All it takes is for us to change our perspective and live in the moment…choosing to have Faith in that moment…and string those moments together to create a web of positive energy to wrap around us and carry us to the next moment. It does not matter if no one else is doing it. We must do it for ourselves, showing others by action that it is possible.

Have Faith…in your ability to Shine. And know that  your Light has purpose and effect. Live for today, in the moment, and let that inner Light glow. Blessings!

BE YOU

 

This post continues the message that…though adversity can do its best to change us and make us sad and bitter…it cannot change the inner core of who we are if we do not let it. ALWAYS be Yourself! Stand in the truth of who you really are deep within, and the adversity does not stand a chance.

Love Yourself, Trust Yourself, and Be Yourself. Nothing else matters or wins.

Blessings!
