Dreams

 

sleepingPeaceful sleep, a deep slumber, or simply resting, our bodies need the down time.  Time where physically we can just let our bodies relax in whatever way is comfortable. This way, not having to thinking of anything in particular, we can allow the mind to drift.

There are some who find that it is easier to have low lighting, and quiet, and others will tell us they like quiet music.  Their mind latches on to the melody and they float off into space.

Back when… we used to call wandering in space astral projection.  Are you familiar with that expression.  Dreams are a form of memory recall, but in a code known only to the Universe.  Eartha* and I touched briefly on this during our last outing, From very different backgrounds, and cultures, we still … as human… relate pretty much to LIFE in the same way.

As writers, a dream world is ever-present in our daily lives, as an artist, dreams explode into colour, pattern and textures  if we paint, if we are musical, our voice, or skills with musical instruments, take us beyond our own realities.

Imagine a world with out dreams.  Let go of day-to-day drudgery, allow your spirit to soar and take flight.  Explore in the night, your inner Universe will bring a kaleidoscope of worlds, past ,present and future  to you, open your mind to new possibilities =^_^=

Eartha* friend & kindred spirit

 

time was

dandelion-puff-1s

Time was when we met people face to face, spent time engaging in conversation, and learning about one and another. We exchanged information, experimented with little bits of information here and there, that gave us an idea of how similar or how different we were from one another.

Some acquaintances became fast friends, and others, drifted in and out, never really rooting in a place close by. Like a carefully planned out garden, we build friendships on personalities that compliment our own. Some bolster our insecurities, others are  comfortable, and nurturing, time spent with them is rewarding no matter what you decide to do.

Other times, we miss out on a new opportunity because we have only focused on the familiar and not ben receptive to a new encounter.  With the age of social media, the internet has changed how we gather and tend to our friends.  Some friends, we have never met in person, we may share time with them, and exchange views and ideas, but we have never looked into their eyes, or known their touch.

2014-05-03 2014-05-03 001 015I admired this trunk when I came upon it on a walk.  How many little critters worked to create this fascinating design, I’ll never know.  But it was through their collective energies, likely at different times, and stages in the tree’s life..   I was enchanted by a piece of history.

When I think of what is happening in the world today, I wonder how someone somewhere in time and space, will look at how we (human race) spent our time while on this earth. Will we have squandered the wonderful possibilities we have had placed before us. Will we build on our intelligence and creativity, or allow negative forces to stunt and cripple the beauty and transformation of love and friendship.

Now more than ever, we should all be united, in a common goal….World Peace.

PL Precept # 11  Always be with God

PL Precept 7   Everything Exists in Relativity

have you ever…

38444747-8822-4882-9e46-9e80604958a0Have you ever dreamed you were in a wonderland

A place surreal and yet familiar to you at the same time

Has part of you been full of bubbly emotions

like elation,  joy, happiness and  contentment

or on the other hand

does the land you travel feel tarnished with a sticky grime

no longer does the sun shine..  you are agitated and feel a constant niggling commotion

life is serving up over or underdone moments with no amusements

at least none that you understand

it happens, and it happens often

where life and dreams collide

 when we look inside, we find ourselves actually inside looking out

and instead of tumbling down a rabbit hole

we are launched into space

travelling at the speed of light

with no known goal in sight

oh dear, I’ve dropped the book and lost my place

what a way  to end the night…

have you ever?

There really are times in my life when I am so full of love and happiness that life becomes upside down, worlds do collide, and still, I’m happy!

My wish for each and everyone of you, is that such joy fills your moments, and that no matter your state of health, or  where you are in life, you feel and know the contentment of a happy heart.       Namaste – Oyashikiri

                              

Wishing you a happy start to your day!

buffet,day

Let your day be a smorgasbord of challenges that excite and provoke you in a positive way. Sometimes we allow our days to be routine, we choose to do the same thing over and over again, in the very same way.  Try something different, whatever you do, put your whole heart into everything you  do, even it is as simple taking the stairs instead of the elevator.=^_^=

Just as the Earth goes through a never ending cycle of rebirth and renewal, so do we.  You are a spiritual being, a divine life in expression.  Life is Art.

buffet,night

Come the end of day, know you have done your  best,  to live each moment of your day, the best  way you could.  That is all that is asked of you.        Blessings…..       Oyashikiri

India’s living bridge

The living bridge by http://www.amoschapple.com  The description given was by Jessica Peavy   

Deep in the rainforests of the Indian state of Meghalaya, bridges are not built, they’re grown. For more than 500 years locals have guided roots and vines from the native Ficus Elastica (rubber tree) across rivers, using hollowed out trees to create root guidance systems.

bridge, livingIngenuity. man and Nature.

How ingenious the idea boggles my mind.  Who was the first to begin this chain of action that created this marvel. There is not only this bridge, there are others, you will find them if you do  a search on Google or…… In life we grow by overcoming obstacles and challenges that land in our everyday lives.  They can appear like weeds in the cracks of sidewalks, or a stubborn stain on a favourite shirt. LOL we know what to do with these, and if we don’t, usually there is someone we can ask or a place to go to find a solution. What about the problems that come along that aren’t so easily solved.  Do you view your problems as opportunities for growth?  do you make the best of the situation you find yourself in, or dealing with?   I wonder how long it takes for the roots of the rubber tree to grow, does anyone know?

I am reminded how everlasting Nature is, and how even with the slings and arrows we (humans) bombard her with, the sun comes up each morning, and the moon comes out at  night.  Soon I will be able to look out my back door and see the new growth in the trees and shrubs.  When the sun is higher in the sky, I’ll feel the warmth on my skin, and smell the earth soaking in the energy of life, to feed the winter weary roots that are waking after a long cold winter.  The sun and moon bridge our days and nights.

Italy, Pompei, oriignal road, by p'titesmith 12 on flickr

History captured by ptitesmith 12 and posted on Flickr.   Here is a road that most have been build rock by rock (Pompei, Italy)  See how smooth the years have made them.  Each one of us, like these rocks, or the roots above, are being guided, we are only a piece/particle in a very large cosmos.  Will there be a reminder  of our  having been here, when we are gone, returned to dust/ashes.  I would be like a gentle autumn breeze rustling the multi coloured leaves till they fall, creating a patchwork of different shapes and shades against fields of yellow, gold and green.  Sometimes felt, remembered but not seen.
