The potential is always there. Always. Everything has a purpose. maybe now, with a different pace in our lives, we will have time to reflect on the new opportunities, challenges, and possibilities that have been perhaps present, but not necessarily appreciated as they could have been.
“Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding”
No human relation gives one possession in another – every two souls are absolutely different. In friendship or in love, the two side by side raise hands together to find what one cannot reach alone.
Use things for what they are meant for. everything has a purpose. Let’s use things to their fullest potential.
Let there be space in your togetherness, and let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love. Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.
One day you will ask me which is more important? My life or yours? I will say mine and you will walk away not knowing that YOU are my life.
Success doesn’t just happen It is not just by coincidence that things go well. The results are based on the hard work you have put in up until that moment. Remember to be thankful and use your current success to reach the next level.
“You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give” Kahlil Gibran
The sun has been shining, the snow is disappearing, the days are longer … been running the roads. Love it. Time to get out, get moving, explore, and renew!!! Q
Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens, Kahlil Gibran
“A man should never be ashamed to own he has been in the wrong, which is but saying, in other wisdom that he is wiser today, than he was yesterday”. Alexander Pope
This picture was taken on a day trip exploring the back roads in the Gatineau Hills, We never know what we will find when we turn a corner, or turn left instead of right.
Yesterday I was driving along with clear blue skies when I came to a red light. Instead of going left I went right and drove right into dark gray clouds, driving winds, and hail. In an instant the world went from, what a beautiful day, to Whoa!!! hello adventure. Such is life. For 15, 20 minutes or so, we drove in a gray snow blind. Barely able to see the road ahead. Then as quickly as it came, the storm left us.
Life is full of surprises, and how we accept and deal with them, is our choice. Have a great day everyone. Visit Norm’s blog for a link to more doors. Norm 2.0
Today we celebrate not only Ancestor’s Day (11th of each month) but in Canada it is Mother’s Day as well. I am very blessed to still have my Mother in my life, she is a witty, caring and loving person who has managed to meet all her challenges with a determination that has been awe inspiring. 93 years young, she still faces life head on. Happy Mother’s day Mom… =^_^=
Life flowers, Mothers come in all shapes and sizes – first and foremost they are women.
“Don’t drown in life looking for a woman. Drown in a woman looking for life” Gibran (Khalil Gibran)

The tree is one of the most essential of traditional symbols. the oak was sacred to the Celts; the ash to the Scandinavians, the lime tree Germany, the fig tree India, etc. Trees express an selective correspondence, symbolism of the tree denotes the life of the cosmos, its consistence, growth, proliferation, generative and regenerative process. It stands for inexhaustible life. The tree with its roots in the ground and its branches reaching towards the sky, symbolizes and upward trend, which it relates to other symbolism as well.
The above picture for me reminded me so much of a passage written by Kahlil Gibran, that i went in search of it to share it with you today.
“Let there be spaces in your togetherness, And let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love: Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls. Fill each other’s cup but drink not from one cup. Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf. Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone, Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music. Give your hearts, but not into each other’s keeping. For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts. And stand together, yet not too near together: For the pillars of the temple stand apart, And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other’s shadow.”
― Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet
Read and take in his words today…. let it fill your meditation, find how it applies to your life/circumstances today. Respect and courtesy are reflections of how much we value others. ” Pay particular attention to the continuing development of your character, you have the Potential Energy for an enlightened insight that could change your life.” Tao.
