“Don’t let you fears be boxes that enclose you.”
“Life is the miracle you are searching for.”
“Honor you life, each gift, and each moment.”
“Love … “
“Live now, live today.”
“Never, ever, live somebody else’s dream.”
I begin my morning in gratefulness, knowing that joy, happiness, and peace are my future. I am going to spend the remainder of my days listening to the flow of fresh waters and the beautiful harmony of the birds and other life in the wilderness. Peace … will be.
I look at the wall and see the canvases I have painted, wondering if I should donate them to good will, and then I realized, “These are good, and usable canvases. These can be recreated into new art which shows the current reality … the shift, from there, to here.”
Such is our life. In our own hands, in conjunction with that divinity within, loving us every step of the way on this journey.
My life … your life … is a Divine work of art. As we began, we were amateurs, fumbling away. Our art depended on the start we received from our elders. Some of us did not get the nourishment we needed in order to produce a Picasso life. BUT ~ these experiences, when embraced over time, wounds healed through careful consideration … all of that, can be used to create the MOST beautiful art in, and around our lives, than perhaps we dared dream of.
This capacity is in all, seemingly dormant, yet brewing just the same.
Pain, anger, regret and remorse ~ love, joy, tears and happiness on all levels … these things are your personal master piece, none will ever compare, nor should they.
Build this beautiful life. This is your day, your week, your year, your life.
The beauty which you have power to create is within you. All you need do is claim it, nurture it, and watch it grow with every ounce of effort and attention you give it.
Golden grasses, sunlight and love … this is what I have longed for my entire life. After all this living, after the choices I’ve made and the paths I have traveled, I wonder if I will ever see this place again, and if so, will I be able to stay … this is the question.
My hope is that the love which stems from before time will always remain, and always forgive, and always overcome everything time has to throw at it.
She was told the world of men did not deserve her, she was told the world should be destroyed, for indeed, it did not deserve saving. Her response? “It isn’t about being deserving, it is about what you believe in, and I believe in love.”
I love this statement, for it is exactly how I feel and think ~ I am certain many of you do as well. It was stated in the movie that the choice between positive and negative (in different words) is the choice every man and woman must make. No one can make this choice for them, no one can determine how they will live, in their hearts and minds and in the world. This responsibility is absolutely our own.
I watched the film with a friend, who although he enjoyed it, he was also against it not being historically correct. I was baffled, as this is not about history as far as our many wars go.
Seeing the negatives has been a habit ingrained into the minds of humanity for centuries. Retraining our self to see things in a different manner can be quite difficult … it requires much effort, continuously.
Some call it “rewiring the brain”.
Many of us have experience hiding our true nature from the outside world. We do and say things we think will make us more likely be accepted into a group, or provide us with the advancement we seek.
The danger though, is that in doing this we find that eventually we are actually hiding from our self as well. Becoming lost to our core senses and truths, we may become angry, feeling as though the ‘freedom to be me‘ has been stripped, and we feel the invisible shackles society likes us to wear.
Embrace who you are, let your love light shine. You are the best version of you there will ever be. Seek wisdom from others, choose what works for you, leave that which does not resonate behind.
Everyone is on their own journey, travelling a path no one else has traveled in exactly the same way. What is learned can help others who may be experiencing something similar. If they ask, a sharing becomes possible, perhaps making the road smoother.
Imagine if we all tried, when asked, to make the road a bit smoother for each other ~ you for me, me for you, us for others, and others for us … on and on. We would all be better for it, and our bond would become so strong, no amount of darkness could penetrate it.
This is my hope for the world, my hope for all of us.
It is truly unfortunate that so many adults are immersed deeply into their own troubles, trying to find their own happiness, that the children get ignored, often mistreated without anyone coming to their defense.
Pain begins early on. Children grow to understand that they deserve pain and suffering. They are taught this when no one steps in to be their advocate. Growing into adulthood, it takes years to break down this habit of belief, and begin to live with another, truer reality instead.
Wasted time …
The fate of the world lies in the hands of these children, indeed, in every one of us. If the young are not taught to value their lives, and the lives of others, then we will get more of the same, which we see every day on the streets, abuses in our homes and animals who suffer at the hands of those swimming in this pain.
The cycle must stop here, now, this generation. LIFE cannot afford it to continue. We all must take responsibility for what we put forth in the world, positive change will only occur if we do.
Waiting on “someone else” to do the fixing is a lazy and cowardly act. The answers do not lie “outside” of our self, the answers come from within. If we continue to allow ourselves to be so disconnected from nature, joy, love, and good, kind living, and each other, we will reap the reward. We have already tasted it, indeed, we are fed this muck every day.
A rise up of good people is needed. Not in a looting and pillaging sort of way … no, the focus should be taken from the negative and placed on the positive.
Where thoughts go, energy flows ~
What do you wish to grow?
Stand in your power, you wonderful creator, you.
So much is counting on your ability to RISE to this challenge.
