I love it when sincerity and transparency makes some people think me a little “off” … hahahha, the truth isn’t for everyone. But I know the right people love me, just the same … and I am grateful for them.
“Let’s take a bath together, the well water is very nice. The Truth, still suspicious, tested the water and found out it really was nice. So they got naked and bathed. But suddenly, the Lie leapt out of the water and fled, wearing the clothes of the Truth.
The Truth, furious, climbed out of the well to get her clothes back. But the World, upon seeing the naked Truth, looked away, with anger and contempt. Poor Truth returned to the well and disappeared forever, hiding her shame. Since then, the Lie runs around the world, dressed as the Truth, and society is very happy…
Because the world has no desire to know the naked Truth.”
I sometimes wonder whether my “stepping out” of my safe place, my Comfort Zone, is an inspired event.
By who, is another thing I wonder about.
Could it be that there are those, seen, unseen, who long to know just how “big” I can be?
Are they friend? Or foe?
Is there such a thing when all is said and done?
Good comes from traumatic events, if only we are open to seeing it.
Does this mean I adore traumatic events? No … not in the slightest.
I am a sympathizer toward Life.
I am a Lover and a Friend.
Polarity of Self has already materialized.
My desire is that it does not revolve once more to where it once was …
Yet the Law states it will.
Could it be that humans and the critters we know of are the only beings who learn from trauma?
Could it be that what was given, shall be returned to the giver?
I think, yes …
It could be.
The Principle of Rhythm
“Everything flows, out and in; everything has its tides; all things rise
and fall; the pendulum‑swing manifests in everything; the measure of
the swing to the right is the measure of the swing to the left; rhythm
And yet … Who says this Law is a necessary one for ALL TIME?
I sit and listen as he plays his guitar. No singing, just beautiful melody.
Haunting at times, the din of the cafe fades.
I am taken to a place, forlorn and yet hopeful, for peace.
I envision a courtyard dance and romance. Lovers sitting on a short brick wall, holding hands.
Cacophony – watching as children chase each other in circle, dust of the road flying high, laughter.
Chickens and dogs crossing the street, there is no set rule for the way things ought to be.
It just ‘is’.
A green meadow – confusion as it is wondered which direction the river is. Where is the water?
A cantina, men in boots dancing, at peace with each other. Joy fills the air.
It is night and a fire is lit, out of doors, under the moon and stars. More dancing and merry making.
Relaxing, time to sleep.
But one keeps watch, for danger.
That “you” that is in memory still exists. That part of yourself that did not have a Are in the world is still within you.
It is your base.
If you do not appreciate where life has taken you, reach within.
Free yourself from fear of others perceptions.
Do not self criticize.
You are perfection in motion, and the flow that is you makes the Universe sing.
Nourish the Soul ~ Drink in life. Use your senses to explore your world – to see, touch, taste, smell, hear and experience all that is within you and around you. Your journey through life is meant to be a sensory experience. Your life is meant to be a rainbow of color, full of emotion and sound. It is not meant to be a bland, tasteless existence of simply black and white. Be sensual. Explore yourself and your world every day and nourish your soul with every moment.
Seek Your Answers Within ~ If you find yourself confused, your intuition and inner voice drowned out by the answers, wisdom and advice of others then it is time for you to step away. Withdraw to a place of solitude. Like the bear, it is time for you to hibernate, to go within and seek the void, and to embrace the silence that dwells within. Within that silence are the answers to your questions, and because they are answers born of your truths, they will be answers that move you forward, instead of holding you still.
Be Without Malice ~ You have been hurt, disrespected or disappointed by others. Another has let you down or betrayed you. It is normal and natural to experience feelings of anger, hurt and disappointment. To feel any and all emotion is natural, but you have a choice always in how you respond. Do not allow your hurt to become a source of infection. Acknowledge it. Learn from it and your experiences, and then let the anger, hurt and disappointment go. Do not allow them to inspire retaliatory acts born of malice or spite.
No doubt some folks are expert at testing & pushing our boundaries (seen and unseen).
Just to see how strong they are.
They teach us to be stronger and honor our beautiful self before all.
Whether intentionally, or not.
