Thanksgiving

new Zealand, Abel Tasminclear path ahead

nothing in the way

great, you can’t wait to wander

into the great beyond

you  stop to ponder

what to take with you

while you re away

a whole day just to explore

how grand a plan is that

almost out the door

oh no, the phone** is ringing

do you keep going or do you answer

what news could the call be bringing

6cc1917f6da17c0a9d80b197cad12c52

you could just keep going out the door

after all, a few seconds later,

you wouldn’t have heard that phone ring

some days, you have to keep going

if the call is important, they will call back

there are times, when

you really really have to put YOU first

we forget, that we are not infallible

or we think we might miss out on something

give thanks for your blessings

live each moment

YOU are all so very precious to me.

*blog-a wandering memory (Abel Tasmin – NZ)

road blocked, road closed

road blocked

road blocked lava,hawaii

Stop… the road is closed

hmmm yes so it appears to be…

Wow, what a sight, nature’s work of art

the results of a volcanic eruption

the passion of the Universe unleashed

in a river of hot molten lava, the spectacular

spewing forth of the internal heat and combustion

that could no longer be contained

the fire’s lust for expression

and the results of its ardour

is this also what our pent-up emotions

would look like if we were to see

them expressed in physical form

lava flowing

heartburn, heart-break,  ulcers and indigestion

oh the pain, the discomfort when we block our true feelings

when we ignore or try to push away what is really happening

in our minds, our hearts and our reality

Hawaii, Kona

we can’t relive the past, nor can we live tomorrow, today

yes, we can come across a detour, an impasse

but, if we stop to take it all in   ..     there is always a way

Hawaii, mountain, valleys

another mountain to climb, another valley to explore

roads are man-made, when one is closed

take yourself in another direction, enjoy every new discovery

the paths we cut/make are our own

hawaii a wandering memory

is lived in one day

adventures in a corn field

corn field

Being a city girl, I would never have thought of playing in a corn field, yet I now know that many a youngster has spent many hours discovering a wonderful play haven in the tall passage ways found in the corn fields. When I saw this picture the writer in me wanted to weave a story of the little fairies and trolls who made  summer homes under the plants, enjoying the shade the leaves and husks provided.  That would have been fun, but a distraction from the task at hand.

We are told in PL that life will take on a greater dimension when we are able to perceive our surroundings with more ” sensitivity”.  So as I start my day with my visit with you, I ponder, on whether or not I meander down the road for a while, or focus on my “list” of “things I should do” today.

OH.. hello a new face, a new possibility, well what a nice surprise.  What can I learn from you, would you like to come closer, wow a face to face with a cow,  Now that brings a smile, a new experience I wasn’t expecting. what fun.

Look for new ways to learn and add knowledge/experiences…. the seasons come and go before we know it, another year has gone by. Make each day count.  Cultivate new possibilities with a positive outlook.

doorway to…

Scotland,church of St.Mary's andSt. Fillans at Glenfinnan

Wow… what would it be like to open a door and have that vista before you….  This is a doorway at the Church of St. Mary’s and St. Filllans at Glenfinnan, Scotland.  I sat and gazed wistfully at the far away mountains peaks, and let me thoughts drift lazily across the water. Hmm what are the ambient sounds as one steps out the door.  Are the rays of the sun warm enough to wrap us in a comforting embrace…. Is there a slight breeze coming up from the lake/river that will bright with it the hint of lush woodland vegetation…..  Today was a day to daydream.

Doors, represent opportunities, some are locked and closed tight, they need a key to turn the lock, and others, sit slightly open, teasing us with just  a peak inside.  While some are open wide, and we know what we will find inside, or we think we d0

Even now I know, that many of my inner rooms have keys that have not turned  in years, and that memories and emotions I may not want to revisit are tucked away, waiting… for a day that may never come.  In PL we are taught to  tackle our issues in the order that they appear in our lives.  That is not always possible, if we live in the moment, change is a constant factor. Sometimes when we do finally return, we find that the wood is aged, and the lock has rusted into place so that re-entry will not be easy.

 

I like a simple life, free of drama and remorse…. if I have gone on with my life and I’m content and happy then what is behind those doors has come and gone in my life, it not longer matters. I know… I truly believe, that should the day ever come that what is behind those doors is needed,then I will find a way, to open them, until then, I will admire the weathering and aging … I will take myself out an open door into the sunshine and the happiness of living my life in the NOW.

Come on, wear comfortable shoes, and lets explore.  Let’s begin our trek down to the water’s edge. Let go of the past, let’s walk hand in hand into the start of another day.  Wipe the cobwebs away, open your mind and heart to the wonders of a brand new day!

Roots, path Pinterest

 

Musubi – Oneness, togetherness with others ( PL, Perfect Liberty)  Look at these roots, look at how entwined and thick they are. One can look at this path and think, oh what a rough go this will be, or, see the roots as steps leading   to what is around the bed.   The ground is blanketed with these roots that have formed and grown over the many years they have been spreading. What was once a single root, soon merged and traveled with another, sometimes from the same tree, and often with a sister or brother tree.  That dear readers is how life is for us, only we are so involved in our journey we don’t see the spiritual web as it unfolds.

When we share our joy with others, our spiritual roots develop and grow stronger.

Ravages of Time                         OR                         Determination and life in progress

Good Morning everyone! May the Spirit be with YOU.

Goedenmorgen, good morning everyone

Alo 3.1_005Remember the song, Rock and Roll is here to stay, or when we were all hearing about the “British invasion”?  Of course not, some of you do, and others have no idea of what I’m talking about.  Never -the-less … both are part of “history”, contributed to the world today.  Not all that long ago, I was doing research for a virtual blog*  I write, when I came across these characters in a haunted house.  I had the opportunity to meet and talk with the builder of this particular setting and others just as much fun and creative, Being an artist myself, I am often humbled by the ability of others to recreate such fun and authentic looking scenes.  The designer, BambiTwice Nitely has given the virtual world of SL a playground for explorers that is unbelievable in the range of destinations she has provided.  i.e Medieval Fantasy, Star Wars, Aquatic-Marine and Tropical fish, the list goes on, oh and I must not forget a museum of amazing Illusions, these are just a few.  all this to say, because in our limited worlds, we often resist stepping outside the box.  Going or doing something that we have never done before, will always bring something new into our lives. Give us a new perspective.  Challenge us to revisit some of our thinking?

How  has your day been so far, where you on the stairway through the day, are your steps leading up or coming down? Either way, you will find a new vista(s) to explore.  We should try to start each day with a renewed sense of appreciation.  Smiles through the screen at you.  Life is so full of treasures some long forgotten that need to be rediscovered and others that are brand spanking new.  Remember  LIFE IS ART 

For those of you who travel in Second Life, this is your link to the boat that will take you along the Nile to the land of the Pharaohs, Pyramids etc.  http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Enchantment%20Island/190/97/23

Where do you want to be today?   Choose to feel the range of your emotions rather than become numb or indifferent. Make your choice the one that will have you being present in all you do, to be mindful of what the day has in store  – reach out and share your mega watt smile with the world.  Trust you will be empowered.    Blessings, Oyashikiri   smilePencil

follow your dreams

d1b4adbea337aa9847344093fcb89c9bBelieve in your dreams, and follow them, trust in your heart, and never give up.  Today, NOW is always a new beginning.  Every day you wake up to a brand new day, and new possibilities. The past belongs to yesterday, YES it is part of your fabric, it is in the weave of who you are…. but today is new, it is the present, and you only get one chance at it.  Use today as a starting point,  move forward on a path towards improvement and progress.  Cherish your dreams, they belong to you .   

Love, being loved, and loving are Blessings, sweet wonderful moments of ONENESS      Oyashikiri
