change – in spades

Bali Nov. 2015

Yesterday, driving home from a meeting at the funeral home, I was feeling good, a lot had been accomplished, when bump…. a car side swiped me.  Yes in my brand new car. I honked and indicated that the car pull overt, which it did, we drove to a safe place and pulled off away from traffic.

I got out to look at my car, and found that there was no scratch on the metal but there was one on the black trim over wheel.  I was not amused.  Turning I saw the elderly man getting out of the other car.  Dressed as gentlemen do … there was a time when a man would not be caught at any time away from home, without a dress shirt and pants .. the driver of the errant vehicle was slow, his hands a bit shaky.  He had come prepared, he had his wallet out, should he need to give me identification.  What I saw and felt was a man who dreaded what was possibly going to  happen.

He waited for my “reaction”

I felt like the empty beach, with the mist that hangs over the water, in the picture you see above this text,  I couldn’t erase the “damage”, turn back the clock, he was already upset, my words were quiet, and I explained that this was a new car, and that my husband had just passed away, I was not happy about the scratch on my new car.  I couldn’t believe I was being so “quiet”..

He did his best to assure me that a bit of shoe polish would hide the scratch.  He sighed philosophically and said, “a new car doesn’t stay new  forever”.  He offered to pay to have it fixed, however, except for asking for his name and phone number, I let it go.  My mind wanted to walk into the mist.

After apologizing again, he explained that he had lost his only set of keys and had been frantically searching for them, and had just found them, his anxiety, and stress, caused him to swerve into my lane.  I said goodbye and left.

It is a new car, and maybe later I will react differently, but somehow.. I don’t think so, life is very fragile, material things, can’t replace feelings. The news around the world these days is unsettling we are all human beings, we all bleed if we are cut, and we all hurt when someone is thoughtless or cruel.

Day 31 in the PL Calendar – Your World will change when you look at things in a positive light.

Everything you encounter is an opportunity for you to express yourself.  What you choose to make of the situation is entirely up to you.

May your day be filled with sunshine, and your nights calm and serene.

Exotic Bali + meditation

Bali,ayana resort and spa

Tropical beach, look at that water, this is the Ayana Resort and Spa in Bali.  Hmmm I have a friend who is on holiday in Bali, she has been sending back the most incredible pictures.  Her face beams in every picture where she is in them. Got me thinking, admittedly some of the pictures had me thinking ahhhh yes, a massage by the pool, then a lazy afternoon enjoying the tropical sunshine and breezes.

Chile

This is Huilo, Huilo in Neltume,  lodges built on a biological reserve, they are environmental wonders.  they are uniquely in touch with their surroundings… perfect for nature lovers, lots of hiking, exploring, totally different kind of holiday.

Bali

This is a picture found on 500px.com,  of Dawn in Bali by Ko Zaw………………….. does this calm the mind or what.. Ok, today I’ll go with the calm, quiet atmosphere of the gentle waters and soothing sounds provided by the beaches and coastline of the areas shown in these pictures to colour my day.
We can’t always be where we might like to be at any given moment in time, but we can thanks to the technology today, be where our hearts take us.  The destination is usually coordinated by our  often busy chattering minds.  In taking the time for a quiet moment, the mind will sigh with relief…. share with me a quiet moment… allow your thoughts to travel with mine in to the depth of the blues and greens, see the little white pebble like shapes, the tiny bird,… then allow you eyes to drift beyond towards the horizon, …. feel your breathing , enjoy the soft swell of your chest as you silently allow the moment to wash over you.

Take this shared moment, the soft, sweet tenderness of now… and carry it into your day…

bali, lagoon villa

Seriously, luxury lagoon villa, for those of you who needed a different visual.. now did that get a smile……

Carry the smile all through the day.. you’ll see it is catching.

Short meditations work, whether you want them to or not.

Namaste      –      Oyashikiri
