meditation

There are so many ways to meditate, it is such a personal way to re-group and reconnect with one’s own inner thoughts/feelings. I marvel at how easy it is to fall out of the “habit” of being “aware”. there was a time I schooled myself to always be aware, taking time to enjoy each step along the way of whatever day I was experiencing.

We often lean towards what is easy. The first time I was told I was “lazy” … I really was offended, “me lazy” surely this was not an accurate assessment of “me”… but if I am truly honest with myself, I have moments. my choices are not always based on “productivity”. But then, why does one need to always be productive. =^_^=

As I slowly navigate this world I am in now, I realize that my situation, my personal space, everything that had been once “normal” is now actually just “clutter” Time has passed, I am coming out of a time of “loss” and “mourning”, the world around me seems different. + It is, the younger generations have different understanding of what and where the world is today… the older travellers … have all come from different backgrounds, their life experiences are etched on their faces, the tell tale shadows of the past linger in their eyes.

When I stand still in the middle of the woodlands, in whatever weather, just stand there, not moving, just listening, my eyes looking nowhere in particular, just taking in the moment, I feel the stillness wash over me, the birds, chipmunks, squirrels, all return to their business of “being” and we all become part of NOW. That moment in time for me is a meditation, it can last seconds, minutes, there is no “clock” just that space where the tranquility of “BEing” is all there is.

Experiencing such moments, means that I can recall that “silence” “stillness” at other times, it is a place I like to be. In such times of “contentment” I realize that you are part of that moment, because you are part of me. We are all ONE with the Universe, with our unique rhythms, sometimes we are in sync, and other times we are simply ships passing in the night. Either way, you are part of my world, and like the seasons, the ebb and flow of life will keep us harmonized.

Till soon

adventure near water

the dream of escape

With the water gently lapping against the ship, the moonlight dancing across your half naked body there is a lull in the passing of time. Nowhere to go, nowhere to be…, what reason is there for this moment, none… none at all.

Except with the daylight … comes reality The boat is still docked, the waves still nudge gently against her, we are not lying onboard, at least not in the state of undress

what is real and what is the dream both are realities for they exist in our heads .. our hearts Always we will see the world through our own personal lens

The beauty is… no one .. can take away our personal realities, so if I love you with all of my heart, all of me….. then nothing and no one can take that away from me.

I will always love you. no more, no less…. today is now … Now is, always and forever….

No more.. no less….

There are always choices in life. We are always faced with a bridge.. doesn’t matter what side of the bridge you are on.. there is always a middle, top and bottom. They all come together in US.

till soon

A Sunday moment

sit by me,

we can cool our feet in the water

while we waste away the day

we need not speak

no words would do

physically we are two

but, in our hearts we are one

this one moment, is an eternity.

You light up my life…

Saturday

Make today a different day. Instead of doing the same old things be creative and do things to improve your day.

Oft in quiet solitude, I think, in retrospective mood,

of all the days and years gone by, of memories that will not die.

I think of times so long ago, Acquaintances I used to know,

and how they used to stop and share a little joy, a little care

I think of moments in the past, when happiness just had to last

Its light with bright endeavour shone, As if to warn – dull care, begone!

I think of many golden days, all special in so many ways.

Good times were had by one and all; Bad times? Nothing to recall.

Oft in lonely solitude, I think in recollective mood,

Receiving an old cavalcade, of memories that cannot fade.

Yesterday morning during my walk, I was chasing signs that fall is on its way.. =^_^=…

Have a good day everyone!

brooding silence

Some evenings I sit in silence – my thoughts travel the distant shores

Often it is a brooding silence that haunts me, clinging to me, shouting for recognition

In far off lands, I walk a shoreline where the wind howls and the seas lash the rugged coast

there my spirit roams, the salty air wraps itself around me

the mist gathers me in, and I am free to simply BE -Q

Energy springs from your smile. A smile makes you and others cheerful and energetic.

Perfect Liberty 2021.4

A smile is something we feel inside, a smile plastered on your face, doesn’t mean you are happy – it is the simplicity of smiling from within that radiates from your eyes and your whole demeaner – being happy is an art.

Energy springs from your smile, when that smile is sincere ..

Be happy, it is a gift we give ourselves.

PL Precept # 11 Always be with God.

silent prayer

unwanted – discarded

With the sunlight shining, bringing hope of a new season

I am being discarded, left defenseless to fend on my own

I did my best to serve as best I could

my trim, my beautiful scrolled design, so loved at one time

is now, no longer enjoyed or even seen

if only this was a dream

I can only hope, someone will rescue me

I’ve done my best – that is all I could or can do

for now I must stand alone – leave my fate up to you

a silent prayer I offer with all my heart

that what ever will be, will be what is best for me

for there are others out there, that are physically alone

but know, that with God we are ONE.

Q

whatever our destiny – we know – we did our best.

Wednesday 10th

Fierce, loyal, I stand true

I gaze out into the day/night looking for you

Although I search the skies from far and wide

I never seem to ever get glimpse of you

Yet, I know you to be all around me

I draw strength through my roots from you

My branches reach up and are embraced by you

I feel you when you blow your cold icy breath against my bark

or bath me in your warmth when you shine your light on me

So, why this need to see you…. for I am…. because of you.

no more no less… for we are ONE

Q.

For the sake of others, society and world peace. Always live keeping in mind everything you do is for the sake of others, society and World Peace.

This was how I defined myself back in the 70’s and 80’s when I was marketing my “works” (expressions, via canvas and acrylics) My name in Chinese translates to Goddess of the Moon, I have used Moon or Dymoon in my work since forever.

A “Moon” for all seasons. (called my sculptures, canvas expressions, musings, Moon)

Travel thru fantasy and life – Capture the spirit of imagination – Ride the winds of time -enjoy an original “Moon”

Transcend illusions of today.

Realize the truth in reality – a subject, is object, only…… when perceived.

Focus but for a second

Tune in on the moment – Collide with tranquility – calm and serene – You’ve found cosmic peace.

I found one of my old business cards, the first part of the above was on the back of my card. I also used the Chinese writing of my name on the card. You can see I’m still going through the old binder I found with past writings and pictures of the “expressions”

How interesting to see, read and take in what was..

can you see me?

Can you see me

I am so close, so real

I know you look at me … but do you really see me

your wall has been built to withstand and keep away

any real feelings that come your way

you look at me ….. but…. can you see me

look carefully, I am here, what you see is real

no wall or past memories can erase the fact

I’m here, and here I’ll stay

one day, you’ll wake and find there is no other way

there is no going back

life is what it is …

Sunday 27th

Breakfast companion
this little guy is smaller, making his way to the suet on the left.

I’m finding great comfort in spending time with the birds. I’ve even got my trunk set up like a cafeteria, every-thing ready for me to access when I get to the feeding areas. Some days it is just too cold to be fiddling with seed bags that are still factory sealed, Or get to the suet blocks that are still in their retail packaging.

I have been eyeing some of the cameras and the special lens attachments that the serious cameramen are toting. So far I’ve only gotten to the stage where I am making enquiries .. and talking to them about their equipment. The reality at the moment is that by the time I get to the feeders, asses what needs to be replaced, fill and relocate feeder trays etc. I’m usually dealing with frozen fingers.

Live radiantly as the sun. Strive to always be bright and cheerful so you can enliven those around you.

Perfect Liberty 2020.27

Happiness is spending time with YOU.
