PL Precept # 1  Life is Art

Chop Suey Tuesday

oct-26_011

With the goings on in the world today, I’m never sure what will greet me when I first listen to the news after a lovely night of sleep.

I first wrote this little poem back in the fall of 2007, I made a few changes, to share it with you now…. have fun, let your imagination flow.

How eerie the night

when everyone looks for a fright

carved pumpkin heads

leer with evil delight

their eyes bleary and red

their lopsided grin

sends a chill from within

children cheer with delight

when ghosts go bump in the night

So tuck yourself in

don’t let the news of the day,

scare your good sense away.

Once upon a time, October came once a year

Now it seems, every day is one the speaks of fear.

Really, let’s think on this, do we want to live this way

I pray each day, that our friendships

will flow and grow

till each and every one of us

in reaching out, will overtake

the negativity spread by “others”

and put pumpkins back on the table

 in tasty pies that we will gladly share

with everyone, for they will be filled with

 thanksgiving, love. friendship and appreciation,

stock ingredients of  our every day.

Blessings.

smell the sea

follow the crowd

to the

fresh catch

 there is no match

indulging  in the day’s catch

I totally enjoyed

the succulent lobster

stuffed into my roll

a treat, indeed.

APPRECIATION -& GRATITUDE

for all that happened and went into

my being able to enjoy

such a delight.

Poetry …

“Poetry is just the evidence of life. If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash.”

Leonard Cohen

Every lyric, every verse, comes from someone’s soul, the wordsmith paints with words, the photographer captures with his/her lens, the singer emotes with the smoldering passion within. How many times have  you cried, drowning in the words of a song that you are hearing over and over, or found yourself completely lost while dancing in someone’s arms, not necessarily because of the person dancing with you, but for the memories that the music is invoking.  Sometimes  this causes a lot of confusion.

Lake Tahoe USA

“I feel, therefore I am”  remember hearing that.before.  We do feel, each and every one of us has feelings, some are just better than others at either masking them, or denying them.  While others live their feelings and enjoy the moments of creation.  Expression.  The sharing of the soul.

The road ahead lay shrouded in mist

so caught up in the landscape

I lost my way, and now wanted only to end the visit

yes, when we began there was  laughter and light

everything just seemed so totally  right

The sound of your name, set my heart aflame

fc2d92dd9d712cd5ad7cfc15c789f714

we walked, we talked, we explored

everything was new, even though we had been there before,

nothing for either of us was the same

your eyes reflected mine, and mine drowned in yours

how were we to know that it would all

come crashing to an end.

Certainly it wasn’t our intent

1e1f0a884b9ea35a655a0d13b7cdad77

yet, when the season’s changed, so did we

in our hearts we knew, the moment was gone

our song had ended, the lyrics came to an end

and once more, we stand alone

2717c2e36db2d5ce3a7b27a2806c715e

Alone with God, we can hear our heart

and feel it beat, with its steady rhythm, it is as strong as ever,

 the shared moments of expression are still alive in our  “hearts”

but what is voiced,expressed in media, or verbalized, is

the emotions lived…. … in loving you.

pure poetry

meditation

60288730e1f0e7a086578903b37a1c6a

Those were not my words back when I was actively working … because  back  then we didnt’ text, there wasn’t a cell phone attached to almost every household, in fact likely none.   But to those who came wanting to learn to meditate, it was almost always about their  need to find a quiet place for themselves, within the confines of their busy lives.  Young professionals needing and wanting grounding.

6c47982c55dc9ff0276b38741f33e1aaJust  Be………  so easy to say, so hard to do.

Common when I asked, “Did you get to meditate since we last met?” Answer, “Only, a few times, but each time I was interrupted, or the neighbour, (or children etc.) were making so much noise, I couldn’t concentrate”

And there lies the problem. meditation isn’t about concentration, it isn’t about having candles in the room, or soothing music with a nice incense happening.  Meditation is the art of staying in touch with your own personal connection to the “Divine”.  God lives in us all…  the Energy of Life is the force that makes us all  ONE.

If ever you have been blessed with someone in your life where just being together, or knowing that the other is close by, is comforting, and an extension of YOU, that is a special bond, and one that – simply is –  We can’t manufacture this sense of extension, sense of Oneness, it simply is.  You just are….   and if someone hasn’t had that experience it is hard to explain it to them.  They have to find it in themselves.  Because  a state of peaceful existence begins within.

So many quotes, so many words…” meditation is inaction.”.. do you believe that?  There is active meditation for example when one is practicing or  engrossed in working out,, dancing, focused on the moment,  you are so intent on the moment, although you hear the world around you, it is lost to you in that moment.  In that moment, all that is …. is where you are… and what you are doing…   that is a form of meditation.  That is meditation.. it is you “BEING”
