It is an understatement that alot is going on and we are having to navigate uncertain and unsteady times. No matter what anyone believes or where they stand…it is intense. So…I give us a reminder that…even amid the chaos…we still have our Happy Place to go to and shut things out for awhile, to rejuvenate, regroup, breathe, and find some peace.

This weekend…don’t forget to…

Thoughts For The Day ~ Repost

“When we live with a solitude of the heart, we can listen with attention to the words and the worlds of others, but when we are driven by loneliness, we tend to select just those remarks and events that bring immediate satisfaction to our own craving needs.”   ~ Henri Nouwen

T1.jpg

MarDrag’s Thoughts:

I have to admit, I kept passing this quote and then coming back again to ponder. It took me awhile to understand and why it attracted my attention so much, but also made me want to look away from it. Solitude and Loneliness can be difficult aspects of life to endure. But as I read this, the difference between Solitude and Loneliness emerged from the mists of the quote. For to be Lonely is to be missing something, to yearn for what is not there. To lament and feel sorry to be alone. But Solitude is the wanting, the desire to be alone, to spend time with oneself in quiet to listen to “life” and its messages. One is external…and one is internal. One we look outside ourselves for validation of and collect words, tunes, songs, sighs and whatever else that feeds it so we can revel in the evidence that proves we should close our hearts. But one…true Solitude…in this we are open and listening and pondering and being…able to quiet the mental chatter and chatter from others so that we can listen to the world and others…and truly hear.

“Remember the child you once were…filled with imagination and wonder? You felt you could do and be anything. That child is the essence of who you are. The wonder is still there inside. It is your limitless spiritual power.”   ~ James Van Praagh

T7.jpg

MarDrag’s Thoughts:

It is my belief that one of the worse things that happens to us as we grow into adults…is that we lose that spontaneous wonder with which we looked at the world as a child. Before we were conditioned by that world around us. I also believe that that childlike wonder does not go away completely. It lurks, and shows itself when we fall in love, or play with our own children, or see something that gives us joy. So, if instinctively we know it is still there…what if we let it out? What if we did not take ourselves so seriously and had a little fun? Even if we know there are things of a serious nature around us, what if we looked at them with the wonder of a child who believes in the possibilities of hope and peace. A child does not know “not possible” for they do not yet know the limitations of the adult world. Let us let our inner child’s imagination out and see what we can create then!

 “Your Light is seen, your heart is known, your soul is cherished by more people than you might imagine. If you knew how many others have been touched in wonderful ways by you, you would be shocked. You are far more wonderful that you think you are. Rest with that. Rest easy with that. Breathe again. You are doing fine. Better than fine. You are doing great. So relax. And Love yourself today.”  ~ Neale Donald Walsch

MarDrag’s Thoughts:

There is nothing to add to this quote but that…I posted it today for all of you…as a reminder of who you are and how Magnificent you are. Believe it in its most awesome Truth…and do Love yourself today.

I send Love and Blessings to all of you. May Love and Magic touch your life today. You deserve it!

Blessings!

Weekend Inspiration ~ Don’t Forget About…

“Magic exists. Who can doubt it, when there are rainbows and wildflowers, the music of the wind and the silence of the stars? Anyone who has loved has been touched by magic. It is such a simple and such an extraordinary part of the lives we live.”  ~ Nora Roberts

M8.jpg

MarDrags’ Thoughts:

Look…I think we can all agree things are crazy out there right now. But, there are many sides to everything…and one we cannot forget or give up on, is that Magic still exists. Much may be “trying” to cover it up…and certainly, our outlook and perceptions can be missing it, not seeing it because so much chaos is interrupting our vision.  We may have lost hope or forgotten to listen to and cultivate our Intuition…and we forget that there is still Magic all around us.

M10.jpg

Some days it does not look or feel like it. But…if we take the time to look closely, and notice that someone smiled, or a flower blooms in the snow, or we close our eyes to listen to the strains of a melody that take us away for a moment…these are all Moments of Magic. And they are so important to the quality of our lives. So let us take a moment today…or several…and look around us, glimpse the Magic that happens that we forget to notice. Focus there…and bring that shining moment of Light and Possibility into our life. Remember what it feels like to Believe that something Magical can happen…at any moment…in surprising ways…that we least expect. Feel the fizzure of energy that bubbles up from a Magical moment and let it dash around you and make you smile. Wave your inner Magic Wand…and create your day to be exactly what you want it to be. You are the Magician of your life!

A Bit About Transition ~ Repost

 

T3.jpg

“Look on every exit as being an entrance somewhere else.” ~ Tom Stoppard

“In the space between chaos and shape there is another chance.”  ~ Jeanette Winterson

“A season of loneliness and isolation is when the caterpillar gets its wings. Remember that next time you feel alone.”  ~ Mandy Hale

T1.jpg

from The Desk of MarDrag:

Transitions. Everyone seems to be going through them on any number of different levels, so I wanted to expound a bit on the subject and the Weekend Post. Transitions seem to be the most difficult part of change and evolving. When we are in Transition, we are smack in the middle of a Change…we have left what is changing behind and we have moved into the tunnel, the middle of the movement, we are “in transit”, and we can no longer see nor are we attached to what we left behind…but we also can not yet see where we are headed, or what the outcome will be. But as one of the quotes from Sunday’s blog says…” all Transitions are composed of an ending, a neutral zone, and a new beginning.” (Walter Bridges). It is the new beginning we sometimes forget is waiting for us.

T2.jpg

Transitions are that time when we hold our breath in anticipation of what will come. Would we spend that time in Fear…or in our Truth and Power as we cultivate the energy that will take us where we want to go. It is in Transition that we have the most Power…because it is that moment, that space between what was created and what is to be created…so it is a chance to find clarity on what we really want to create. It can be a useful time.

T4.jpg

And while we may not be certain something good is going to come, we are equally not certain that something bad is going to come either. We Fear what will happen, yet it has not happened yet, so what use is that Fear? If it happens, we already know we will deal with it. Because we always do. If something wonderful happens, then we have wasted that time spent in Fear of the unknown, when the unkown held something great for us all along.

T5.jpg

In addition, we are contributors to our Destiny, so while outside forces play a part in what occurs in our lives, we too have our inner force, our Power, Choices, and Decisions that can be the factors that sway the direction in which the Transition takes us.

The Oxford American Dictionary tells us the definition of Transition is:

the process of changing from one state or style to another; passage from one form, state, style, or place to another; movement, development, or evolution from one form, stage, or style to another

I like the part that states Transition is a Passage, so that tells us it is not a place we stay. The very root of Transition is Transit…in movement. And a Passage, a Movement, always takes us to somewhere else. It is as if being on a train ride. So, are we riding that train in Fear and Apprehension…or would we spend that time on the train reading, studying, praying, creating, dreaming, and sending our Energy and Power out to be counted in the forming of our destination. It really is all in our Perception of how we see Transition.

T9.jpg

If we are in Transition, then movement has begun and we cannot stop it. But, we can certainly have Power in directing where we are going and what we choose along the way. AND…most importantly…we have a choice about how we spend our time in Transition. Which can be…taking care of ourselves, gaining clarity on where we are going, and focusing our energy in a positive direction.

T6.jpg

Transitions can be a bumpy ride…but they can also be full of useful and empowering action, even if that action is to sit back and wait for the train to arrive at the next station. We do not have to dread Transition, it can be exciting and thrilling if we see it as the time of the caterpillar in its cocoon, just before it breaks free and morphs into a beautiful Butterfly…and begins a whole new life.

Weekend Inspiration ~ Random Acts of Kindness ~ Repost

 

K2.jpg

I actually wrote and posted this blog a few years ago. It is interesting that I came across it today…as now, more than ever, we need to remember to do this. I KNOW IT IS HARD…especially with so much negative energy and people being hateful. But…in the face of that…Love and Kindness is what we want, so we must continue to live by it…even when it the hardest ever to do. May you all have a weekend full of Kindness and Love. I send some to you from the depth of my humble Heart and Soul. So Many Blessings to You All!

~~~~~~

The world we live in at the moment can be a worrisome, frightening, and confusing place. We can be unsure how to deal with it, and so, put our heads down and do not look up too much, for fear of what we will see. We shake our heads and wonder…how did we get here? And what can we do to change it?

Though a small thing…Random Acts of Kindness can remind us that there is good to be had in this world, and that we can be the ones to keep that good alive. We can stare down this craziness, stand up to it, and prove it will not change what is natural and inherent in us all…Kindness.

K4.jpg

Think about that as you go on with your day. And do Random Acts of Kindness…just to share good energy. Some of the things I like to do is…pay for the person’s meal behind me in the take out line. Or wish a stranger a good day. Ask a neighbor if they need help with something. Or visit a home for the elderly just to spread Kindness. Another thing I do is tape a dollar bill on the back of diaper packages at the store with a “wishing you abundance” message on them. Open the door for someone, help carry packages, clean out your closet and give the clothes to a shelter, hug someone. Leave an encouraging note. Thank someone.  If you think about it…there are many ways to do Random Acts of Kindness.

If you think about it.

I know the comment on the picture above is a lofty one…and maybe overly optimistic. But…what if it is true? What if, by chance, it would work? Shouldn’t we at least try?

K6.jpg

And one of the best parts is…we can feel good knowing we made someone smile, or brightened their day with a surprise. And just think…we make that other saying, “Live each day as if something wonderful is about to happen”, come true for someone. How cool is that? All that energy comes back to us at some point too. So we are winners all around.

That has got to put some good energy out there to combat the rest of the murk. I Believe it. I’m stubborn like that!
