being true

skyline-march-2-17

Being true to one’s self – and trying to fit in to what the traditions and customs of others might be, can be a challenge.  A simple conversation between son and parent can be very enlightening.  Whether we are aware of it or not, what we say, how we say it can impact on someone else, and we may never know just how that conversation will play out over the years.  It is when one day you are chatting and the off spring says something, that resonates with you.  You react to the statement, and of course, the two of you are sympatico, you agree on the pronouncement… however, the delivery of same is coming back at you or to you in a manner that is not what you would have thought the way it could have been expressed. (“my” reaction)

Honesty IS very important, and expressing One’s true feelings and thoughts IS what is taught, but some how another important ingredient has to come into the mix. Awareness of the feelings of others, and that not everyone deals with life the way we do.

A dear friend that I share the “passion” for creativity with saw my  picture (shown above) I don’t usually name my expressions, because I find that when I do, it confines it to MY thoughts at the moment.. and limits its potential.  I could pick it up and work on it again, altho’ I seldom do that.. except I am learning.. this technique, requires working in stages because I prefer to let the medium dry on its own.  I digress.. this is not a how to on painting, when “possum” saw it, she came back with…  is this about the 7 new planets that have been discovered….   totally foreign to me, never crossed my mind, but her words, were like WOW..    oh I like… she gave me a totally different perspective with her simple “reaction” to my post to her.

All of a sudden, my expression took on new life for me.. and now when I look at it, I wonder where it came from… who did that, and what were they thinking when they did it..

A gift we all have, is the ability to communicate with others… how we interact, and how we accept, retain, and use the constant flow of information and ideas… is a wonderful, complex and amazing part of life.

We are each and every one of us, unique in our own way, appreciate and learn from the information that comes our way, and always, do your best to maintain a positive outlook.

Life is beautiful, and so are YOU.

Words on Wednesday,

a child’s expression

so much innocence

the emotion just happens

as we mature

somewhere, some how

we find ways

to hide or not show

how we truly feel

and in time

we ourselves forget

that the facade

is really just that

an outer face

and not what

we are feeling

at all

a story, people,time,places

Naikoon Rainforest,Queen Charlotte Islands, BC CanadaDon’t worry .. this is a short story =^_^= I was recently asked to go through long forgotten boxes (husband doing a clean up and rearranging in part of the house).. I got to go through several boxes of pictures. Pictures, tons of pictures, there was nothing to do but sit down with a box and begin.

What emerged were pictures of another lifetime,in fact ..many life times .  People, places long gone from my present. Although I did remember some of the moments, if I’m honest, many moments captured were really no longer part of  my current bank of memories, and most of the people who I came across would be total strangers to me now.  I wouldn’t recognize them unless they came up to me and said, “hey, remember me…”

????????????????????????????????????

Like pebbles in the ocean

being washed in by the waves

daily our lives change…

sometimes the changes are subtle

other times, the change is drastic

shattering your life pattern

so that nothing remains the same…

the quiet slow changes do the same,

only you have time to assimilate

and are always on top of your game.

The memories were and are good …  I realized that although at the time I might not have appreciated the growing pains…

( IF there was any) but in seeing the happy faces, and the recalling the moments/events/happenings, I felt really blessed to have had  such caring and loving friends.

People change, friends drift apart, what was, was, and what is, IS.  The saying “when one door closes, another opens” is so bang on.  When we enjoy life, with all the opportunities we are offered, greet the day with enthusiasm, our days become more rewarding.  Not matter what it is, what the day bring, really get into it.  Put your heart into everything you do, don’t squander the adventures offered by the Universe.

ce00249d8878b494394bf12392d36775When you go through a door, don’t just open it, walk through, and forget it, each door tells a story, make sure you leave your presence known.  What will your story be today.

compromise

d32d9e24148310bce6ea28f49d63113aShould I …. or shouldn’t I

we may not say it out loud

but our hesitation, our actions

or non actions

speak volumes

9da3f3320415cdad3b34bb83c0ab7fee

do we some times, learn to late

that perhaps we should have given a bit more thought

to a situation or opportunity,

before, we stepped out to meet “fate”

mirkwood_nursery_by_ethe-d5tf6bg

sometimes it is our choice

of friends, and/or toys

we surround ourselves with

our time on earth is a gift

02f190ad6f58276eff7d8e55c815f5dc

and yes, it seems that we are constantly being challenged

by one choice or another

and, yes, our minds just never stop chattering

one solution always brings up another possibility

compromise can make  life more complicated

know what YOU want for yourself

never compromise with your SELF

once something is said or done

we can not take it back

a sincere request

Australia

In the quiet of my heart, I ask

that I be blessed with the ability

to disagree without being disagreeable

share my convictions 

without being contentious

to lift up truth

without putting

others down.

In this quiet moment of prayer

I ask  for help with unresolved 

perplexities that weigh on me

I trust in the Universe to guide my thinking

unravel my difficulties

and empower my decisions.

I am ready for this day

I plan to live it with

freedom and joy

happy and free

e7626f1a8bfa78df0d0069856dff9ef0

How beautiful heaven must be

oh to be set free

Night and day, we pray

Peace on earth will be here to stay

the joy of a happiness

lived in a total awareness

of unconditional love

trust, understanding, caring

peace in all our hearts

when love is not just a word

then and only then

will light and dark

be ONE

Time and forever

d14b88421d46467146ce6c947eb068b0

Time was

when you were strong and vibrant

Now, you sit in decay

sunshine or rain, no one will visit you today

stripped bare of your dignity and purpose

still you stand proud and tall

for come what may

you know you have done it all

Mother Nature still comes to you

her flock never fail to  take refuge

in the recess and protection of your walls

Time is so fleeting,

a life can happen in a minute

and be gone just as quickly

Only man measures time mechanically

in reality

our existence is a fantasy of mind

for when our bodies sleep

where does the mind go to play

it travels to forever

where there is no time

night and day

light and dark

one without the other

cannot be

therefore

time was and time is

so now has to be

forever.

579848_458637270824156_2138431763_n

Is love forever

yes when it is freely given

and unconditional

love is always and forever…..

Namaste     …    Oyashikiri
