short story line

P1000082

he could hear the birds. feel the heat beating down through the trees, yet without opening his eyes, he knew he wasn’t in a park. the smell of rusted metal, and old oil and grease permeated the air.  his body was heavy, unresponsive, and whatever was on his chest was not going anywhere fast.

P1000085

his eyes still closed, he knew, instinctively knew, that the weight on this chest was alive, and it was gazing hard, accessing, patiently waiting.  Did he want to see what held him captive, sooner or later, he would have to look.  The weight on his chest shifted, but did not move away, he could feel the warm breath on his face. He was too stiff, tired and dazed, it would be unwise to move suddenly, if he could at all.  With a slow intake of his breath, he allowed his eyes to open.

P1000101

the sun hurt his eyes but he forced himself to keep them open, there was lush vegetation all around from what he could see, he was surrounded by the remains of vehicles, he was in a graveyard of scrap metal.  what he tried to avoid and was not succeeding were the dark emerald eyes flecked with gold that stared into his.  There was no emotion not human anyway that looked into his, just a pair of hypnotic eyes that spoke volumes, but none that he could recognize.

P1000088

suddenly the sun no longer gave him warmth.  now he felt a chill, it travelled from his head down to his feet.  This was something very different and very real, This was a she, he was sure, he was being held captive by a she, and he knew… she was wondering just what to do.  She wasn’t hurting him, she wasn’t gentle, she was exploring and sizing him up, but for what.  Why was he not afraid.  what was it that kept him still, and wondering, almost a partner in this unknown dance.

P1000087

life is what we make it.  how we respond to situations in life, can change the course or direction of our lives.  live being mindful of who you are and the opportunities around you. =^_^=

This is my story, that I’m sharing with you.  My mind likes to invent when I’m driving and waiting for lights or in traffic.

PL Precept # 2  To live is to express One’s Self

bom dia…bon jour…. hello!

6ecedfc5d214610718700258ff367a4a

life itself is simple

it really is

it is the human mind

that complicates

what IS

8e43cd752afd31dd59eb3660f7948efa

I am sometimes at a loss

not necessarily for words

but for the “music” or visual if you like

to accompany the words

in life, there is always a positive and a negative

you cannot have one

without the other

one person speaks, the other listens

the start of a conversation

one sees something, and captures it on film/photo

they have already seen it,

what they are doing is capturing the moment

to share, to show, to express

one picture, a thousand stories

not one person wil have the same reaction

CHINA-T-NATURE 1

however, we will each have a unique response

if we stop long enough

to allow the moment to speak to us

silver, gold, I wanted it all

silver and gold, I wanted it all

treasures of jade and jewels in all the different hues

 cold cut diamonds and semi transparent pearls

sapphires, emerald, the bling, dazzle and sparkle

how hard it was to resist the glamour and false dreams

that in collecting and hoarding material wealth

I would find the happiness that had eluded me

6175dad517bd7f5ea86ca512d1538703

Turned out I was wrong….

It was in letting go of material things that I found inner joy

Yes, I still admire and enjoy the jewels of yesterday

Only now I enjoy them in a different way

It is in sharing with others, and giving of myself

that there is a true appreciation of what a genuine treasures is

the sparkle of a well cut diamond is reflected in a friend’s smile

The depth  and warm glow of a pearl

is felt when I see the love reflected in a friend’s eyes

I find gold in the sun’s warm balm

and silver in the stars and moon at night

when I look up and see a twinkling star I am filled with awe

these gifts have been there for me since the beginning of time

Let’s make each day we live a memorable one

Let’s stop squandering our precious time

7359a3abbcba57bd6c5e6168d25f4ea0

unconditional love, is ours to give

I appreciate you all, you are my treasures, each and every one of you

believing in each other will see us through

whatever cones our way

thank  you…

PL Precepts # 15     All is a Mirror

PL Principle # 16    I will not have a mind to be arrogant nor conceited

These are the two lessons i am working on this morning..  I found myself thinking some very surprising thoughts this morning.  Recollections of my unbidden thoughts from last night seem to be wanting attention.  You know where a thought comes up about something that happened at another time that is disturbing … yet at the time, you hadn’t noticed just how much the experience was affecting your thought process.

Today’s calendar “lesson” says, that if we face a situation head on, a path will open up“….  hmm  sits quietly and reflects on the niggly thoughts that are lingering.  I didn’t like learning I had a lazy mind, but after it was brought to my attention, I did eventually see that I do have a lazy mind, LOL and it sneaks up on me when I least expect it.

This ahHA moment will also be a good lesson for me.  Smiles, life lessons are ongoing,  guess I’ll be a “work in progress” for some time to come.

Thank you for sharing with me -I so appreciate you all, may your day be blessed with blue skies and happiness.

Looking out into the night, with only the shadow of dusk on the horizon, the fading lights of the car seemed to draw his mind to another time in space.  He could have stopped her from leaving, but then instead of being alone with his thoughts,he would have had to listen, and be attentive. No,he no longer cared if he had to eat alone, or wake up with no one by his side, for once he was happy by himself.

He looked down at his hands,.  Such sensitive hands, at least he thought them to be… he remembered how his hand had looked against the whiteness of her skin…. how when he reached out to draw her to him, his fingers had felt the softness of her hair….If only she had not spoken. Why was it that whenever he began to feel close, when the fiery warmth began to grow within him, words would render him cold.

There was a time when he would  easily have pushed aside the momentary irritations of speech and continued on into paradise.  Alas, that time had passed.  With time he had  learned that sooner or later the “words” would come, there was no escaping them…

With the dusk casting long shadows on the road before her she found her thoughts floating back to the silent figure at the window.  She could have stayed, she knew how wonderful it would have been.  How gentle his  hands, how loving his touch.  When he reached to hold her, she had felt her body respond to his need…  his closeness catching her breath. such contentment, he wanted to share “all” with him.  He’d stemmed her words wanting only to pursue the moment.

She felt her hand on the wheel… the smoothness of the leather, the power of the engine as it purred along.  There was a tightness in the pit of her stomach that longed to be eased… her mind was caught in that space of time, when she so easily could have succumbed to the melting passion that balanced so precariously on the brink of her consciousness.

Somehow she had pulled away, she needed more… words were part of who she was, she was fine on her own, she liked having the bed to herself at night.  Over time she had learned that she could not live in a world void of “‘words”.

To experience life we must venture beyond our horizons and explore the unknown… in transcending boundaries, we find oneness with the Universe.

The words, pictures and thoughts are mine alone.Q

over and over!

Arizona, Sedona on flickr Day after day, time after time, we get to do some tasks over and over, or hear the same complaints, thoughts, musings from friends, family, co-workers, its a daily grind, getting up going to work, sigh…  there are days when the mind just won’t stop babbling away.  Then we take a walk, go hiking, or drive by a something new, something we haven’t experienced before. Do we take the time to stop and explore or do we keep on going?  When I saw this picture, I stopped! what a WOW factor. Arizona is on my bucket list. My husband surprised me one year by allowing me to think we were going on a trip maybe 10 days) down into the States to see a friend who lives in Montana.  What he didn’t tell me was he had mapped out a way to get there showing me a number of States I’d never been to, and then coming back from the west coast so that we traveled back to Ontario,Canada through the Provinces. Now that was an amazing time for me, we didn’t get to Arizona yet, seeing this picture has increased my anticipation. =^_^=  (  9 States and 5 Provinces later we got back home) See the pond that looks like a footprint.  Reminds me of the poem Footprints. Footprints poem   Put your heart into all you say and do. When we do something over and over, it can get boring, revisit how you do it, put a smile into it.  smilePencil Thanks for sharing this moment with me..             Blessings be……    Namaste …….     Oyashikiri ……..

 

Good Morning Everyone!

In my meditations this morning, I came across a Blessing Chant, I’d kike to share it with you. It is a chant adapted from the Pattanumodana  (Teachings of Buddha >edited by Jack Kornnfield)

Just as water flowing in the streams and rivers fills the ocean, thus may all your moments of goodness touch and benefit all beings, those here now and those gone before.

May all your wishes be soon fulfilled as completely  as the moon on a full moon night, as successfully as from the Wish-Fulfilling Gem.  May all dangers be averted; may all disease leave you.

May no obstacles come across your way and may you enjoy happiness and long life.

May those who are always respectful,honoring the way of the elders, prosper in the four blessings of old age, beauty, happiness, and strength.

nederlands,amsterdamPL’s lesson of the day is about being pro-active, in an ever changing society.  a reminder to keep  our minds and eyes in tune with the changes and to learn to deal with them in a proactive manner.  This busy picture taken in Amsterdam, Nederlands (found on Pinterest) while peaceful in it’s own way, is not the tranquility captured by the photographer of the top picture.

Where would you like to be today?  Which destination captures your imagination, if you could close your eyes and with a snap of the fingers be right there, in what direction would you go?  Choices, ahhhh isn’t life grand!  Have a blissful day everyone!

Live in Joy > Live in Peace             Oyashikiri
