Wishing

violet 10.17

Wishing I could reach out and comfort you,

I saw your tears begin to flow

you tried hard to be composed

but the sadness in your heart, needed to let go

You looked out with eyes, that brimmed with pain

your tender heart was bruised and weary

so many senseless deaths, how much more

could you be expected to endure.

Life is not always easy, rainbows appear only after the rain

it isn’t always easy to understand

why there are times., when God calls home the chosen ones

and how it happens, isn’t always  or easy to comprehend

each flower has its time in the sun, then it fades away

and is gone, life simply flows along,

I reached out to wipe your tears

of course you were miles away, yet I know you felt the love

of all who shared your pain that day.

Everything we say and do, is for  reason

sometimes we know right away, and other times

the light bulb comes on when we least expect it to.

Know that always,  LOVE will be there for you

journals are merely earthly tools to help us

mirror what is in our hearts

I send this wish out to you tonight

may the blessings of the moon and stars

bring sweet dreams to you this night

so that tomorrow, all will be sunny and bright.

Q

a prayer for you my friend.

Oyashikiri

 

and then- sorrow

roses 6.22.17 PA

the wind blew

rain fell

still my heart

simply lay

like a heavy stone

the light had gone

the sun no longer shone

I was not alone

yet I know

I am still

mourning

and nothing

can be done

till the moment comes

that tears are done

you gave unconditional love

now you soar above the clouds

your wings the brilliance of stars

I miss your earthly presence

but for you, free of pain

and earthly ties

you are now free

you will always be

the forever angel in my heart

Oyashikiri

I cried

I cried today

I cried yesterday

I could not stem the tears

for they had been waiting years

locked somewhere deep inside

somehow they found a way

to have their say

they were not bitter

simply sad

was there pain in the tears that rained

down my cheeks, one by one

leaving  tear stains that betrayed

the sadness in my heart

I recognized the pain,

what I don’t understand is why…

norway, lofoten islands

why now ………

emotions, they are a way for the body to express feelings that have been locked away

we can hide from our”selves” for only so long, then when least expected, someone, or something touches the right button, and a door swings open.

the raw emotion of another time, place or experience comes to life and you are open and vulnerable to the lesson (challenge) you didn’t deal with before.

In life, we face a new day, every day, each one is unique and special, no two are the same, and no two people are alike.

It is when you admit to, and claim the pain, sadness, grief or sense of loss, that you finally regain a footing to understanding.

… we cope much better when have friends and loved ones who care, and lend support when we falter, they can’t respond to us though .. if we are silent about what is happening to us.

Crying is healing and revitalizing, it is part of life.

life and aging –

We have life today because of the ancestors that came before us.  Utilize the Makoto )sincerity left by your ancestors to live today to the fullest.

Haga valer en el presente el Makoto de sus antepasados.  (Spanish)

O hoje existe gracas aos antepassados. (Portuguese)

Love translates into any language, it is easy to forget as we ourselves age, that our elders have lived and experienced the same joys and sorrows over their lifetime. Try not to squander your days and nights on actions or non actions that you may at a later time come to regret.

Never forget to express love and appreciation to those in your life that matter.

Chinese Moon Gates, symbolize gateways, passage ways to a mystical “beyond”… their architecture in gardens had them so one could see the full moon, and enjoy the vista beyond.  Some day we will all cross over the threshold of today, and when we do we will be ancestors to those we have left behind.

By increasing the feeling of appreciation to your ancestors, your life will be more enriched.

And remember to do your best to smile, sharing a cheerful smile and expression makes everyone around you happy.

Realize tudo com um sorriso!

Irradie su entorno con sonrissas y expresiones alegres.

Namaste   – Oyashikiri

Please note that I will be in holiday mode for the next week or so,  posts may not be consistent.

Brazil on a foggy day *

My heart and prayers go out today to the readers who are presently suffering tragedy and sorrow, to the friends who are facing challenges that required a lot of inner strength.  Those of us who today have extra energy and love to share, please, let us put our hands together in prayer and silently send Oyashikiri to our brothers and sisters out there.

The Tao – Over and over, sages  have told us that the world is but a dream, and when one wakes on a foggy morning, with mists obscuring hills and valleys, we might even agree with them.  Reality can often be phantasmagoria.  The world is a dream from which there is no escaping.

I love each and everyone of you with all my heart.  I have been so blessed to be able to share this time with you.  If you have something to do today, do it with joy and enthusiasm.

Share your Happiness

5ef43740409003232aadbc047466075cGood morning everyone! Hope your day is going well for you.     Did you all enjoy wearing the “green” ..I personally had a wonderful day driving along the St. Lawrence (the great waterway that separates the United States and Canada)  The day started out with -20 something weather, but turned to a balmy minus  single digit by the time the noon hour was upon us..  Definitely during a Canadian winter we did not see a bicycle rider such as the one I’m showing you today. LOL and even on a good sunny day in summer, we are not likely to see such  a sight here in Canada.  Here we are about cars, motorcycles, and more cars.  Riding a pedal bicycle is usually  a recreational or sport activity.  What caught me about this picture is the balance and way the artist packed his merchandise on the bicycle. We are all artists in life, we all use our gift in different ways. This man had to pile the pineapples in just such a way for  him to carry the load and maintain balance so he can get his wares to market.  Everything has its place. This was one moment in this man’s life captured in time.   PL Principle # 3  I will live with a mind of appreciation towards others and things.

Yesterday while my friend and I drove along enjoying the sunshine and our friendship, we got to talk about life and share just being able to catch up.  Both with busy lives, we can keep in touch, but while her activities tend to take her daily in multiple directions, she still works “9-5” mine is more laid back and my time more flexible.  Sharing feelings, joys, sadness and disappointments is important, not because you want someone to resolve an issue or make something go away, but just to hear a thought out loud gives US a different perspective. PLUS,  when we have a better understanding of a friend’s feelings and thoughts, we are better able to share in their happiness. joys and sorrows.   PL Principle # 4   I will live with the spirit of Misasage (Devotion) working for the happiness of others.

Calmness and adaptability will see you through…
