Poetry …

“Poetry is just the evidence of life. If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash.”

Leonard Cohen

Every lyric, every verse, comes from someone’s soul, the wordsmith paints with words, the photographer captures with his/her lens, the singer emotes with the smoldering passion within. How many times have  you cried, drowning in the words of a song that you are hearing over and over, or found yourself completely lost while dancing in someone’s arms, not necessarily because of the person dancing with you, but for the memories that the music is invoking.  Sometimes  this causes a lot of confusion.

“I feel, therefore I am”  remember hearing that.before.  We do feel, each and every one of us has feelings, some are just better than others at either masking them, or denying them.  While others live their feelings and enjoy the moments of creation.  Expression.  The sharing of the soul.

The road ahead lay shrouded in mist

so caught up in the landscape

I lost my way, and now wanted only to end the visit

yes, when we began there was  laughter and light

everything just seemed so totally  right

The sound of your name, set my heart aflame

fc2d92dd9d712cd5ad7cfc15c789f714

we walked, we talked, we explored

everything was new, even though we had been there before,

nothing for either of us was the same

your eyes reflected mine, and mine drowned in yours

how were we to know that it would all

come crashing to an end.

Certainly it wasn’t our intent

yet, when the season’s changed, so did we

in our hearts we knew, the moment was gone

our song had ended, the lyrics came to an end

and once more, we stand alone

Alone with God, we can hear our heart

and feel it beat, with its steady rhythm, it is as strong as ever,

 the shared moments of expression are still alive in our  “hearts”

but what is voiced,expressed in media, or verbalized, is

the emotions lived…. … in loving you.

pure poetry

Thanksgiving -Month of May

23c365f6af44dd8272a6b5fd1d1f9938

Good Morning on May 21st, which to those of us practicing living in Perfect Liberty is the day we celebrate with a special service that offers up our thanks for the blessings we received during the month.

A thankful heart, is one that will enjoy happiness and the vibrant world around us.

I must say from the number of e-mails I received on yesterday’s post, many of  you have not heard or had necessarily favourable encounters with personnel from the agency that was mentioned in yesterday’s blog.

After reading some of your comments and responses, I reflected back, and honestly I can find no negatives with our experience. LOL would I do it again, no, but  everyone we met was helpful, and in no way gave us any reason to change our “day off”  happy feeling.  It is like… you are going to head out on an excursion with a friend, you need some cash,  you stop in at a bank, find their machine is down and you have to go inside to deal with a teller.  there is a line up, so you have to slow down and just wait your turn.  You deal with it.

The problem in our society is we want things to work like they always do, and we want to hurry up and get on our way, or get  on with what we are doing.  Distractions can be annoying, but they need not be.. if we are presented with a challenge, it is an opportunity to discover why the Universe brought our frenetic pace to a stop.  I was on a holiday, these young men/women working were stuck in that building working a shift. The sunshine and fresh air that was beckoning was not in their reach till after their shift, and dear knows what responsibilities they had once their work day was over.

Life can be colourful or it can be bleak.  It is after all art of our making.  We create the thoughts, it is our decision to  enjoy a moment or to be dragged down by circumstances.   During the PL Thanksgiving Services, we, members humbly express our appreciation to God for all the blessings of the past month and sincerely ask to be guided and protected by the grace of Oyashikiri in the coming month.

We renew our determination to follow and practice the teachings of PL. and to share this love/faith  wholeheartedly with others.

Why is it that we are so often wanting things to be just right all the time, as an artist I know that some of my best pieces came about because I made mistakes that meant I had to pause, reflect and review, then action .. usually always in a different direction, giving what I was doing greater depth.

Service this evening at 7 pm. in all PL churches everywhere.

Namaste     –     Oyashikiri

ps..I say thank you to all of you who commented to me on yesterday’s blog. It made it all the more special and endearing to me.  Blessings …

A meandering mind

Stuck in time

ponders the question

of not feeling well and happiness…

can you be unwell… and still be happy

It is really anyone’s guess, wouldn’t you think?

since happiness is a state of mind

and, when the question is asked,

you’d have to factor in your perspective at that moment in time

I believe that one can be happy, and physically unwell at the same time..

really… you don’t say?… what road are you on?

me, I travel  ” a road less traveled “..(M Scott Peck).

Happiness is being who we are

24/7 and loving it.

Yep, I do say!

Namaste – Oyashikiri

Live today to the fullest

Q 1.11.14_006

 

When the world lacks colour, we have to find our own.  

Q 1.11.14_005

 

When skies are gray with clouds, rediscover your home – When it is too cold and the outside landscape seems frozen and unwelcoming, snuggle in at home.  Home can be anywhere, find a chair, close your eyes, connect with God and you are HOME.

Q 1.11.14_008

 

PL Precept 11 >Always be with God   in so doing, you will live today and everyday to the fullest.
