A Zen Haiku, that says it best....
The power of natural forces
creates struggle and conflict
Removing the unneccessary
I center myself
Well, most of my life, from being a homeless kid or my relationships in my life, THE life-changing event, my farmhouse going up in flames.
Courage Is - Strange Familiar lyricsTake all my vicious wordsAnd turn them into something goodTake all my preconceptionsAnd let the truth be understoodTake all my prized possessionsLeave only what I needTake all my pieces of doubtAnd let me be whats underneathCourage isWhen you...
Well it was time!
I finally got the courage to walk through the gateway
I don't know where it leads
I am scared
I proceed with caution
Confronting each step
With each step i approach
Viewing all that is around me
I had stopped, came to a halt
I looked back at...
... to stop.... a body of water confined by a barrier .... a barrier preventing the flow of water!
Yup, been a very long time since i came up to a dam. I have been trying for sometime to find just a tiny hole so i could continue to flow. But NO GO! Stopped...dead in the water...
Rest and meditate. Sometimes to go with the flow ... at times, is to be still. Relax, take it easy. If need be, take it slow because just around the bend is in need of all your energy. So, watch, don't project, don't reject ... just be!
Did you know that people soil each other's souls with seeds?
Be it good or bad seeds, people are continuously interacting with each other, trying and even subconsciously succeeding in leaving their 'mark' of worthy notability on others.
People constantly want recognition from...
sign.......... I have written here confessing to ..."going with the flow" of life. Always thought, told myself never Look-back. But you know, like a good friend said recently... sometimes the things you desire, need most in life ... has always been within, known to you.
I see I love this group,I have a few stories here. I must relate greatly to the title of this group. Guess I do see life as a water flow, like a river.
While I was back at my home state, I spent the day with a soul sister. I recieved a wonderful card with magnets, the ones with...
I believe we all change with the seasons. This is my spiritual Winter I am experiencing. When snow and ice are freezing my old behavior patterns of an overused ego and maybe killing it.
I know in this time I should surrender and let go, trusting in the process .... or I could...
As long as I can remember I've wanted to change the world. I want the world to be a kind place to all that is natural people, animals the environment. I've tried to push the people around me to have the same objectives I have. When someone or something is hurt I want to...
I'm in a massive time of transition, and while I'm grateful, it kind of stinks. Just like when my body grew crazy-fast as an adolescent (12 inches in 18 months!) it hurt and had issues...yeah. I'm in a growth spurt on the energy level and it's not much fun.
On the plus side...

Wow, what a ride! You know i almost drowned on this stretch of life. The power of water has been at work on/in me for sometime now.
With each season we change, there is purpose in every season. Nature has its rhythums, we have ours. To be with one with the seasons, to interact with our environment, to communicate with nature, we need to match our personal rhythums with Mother Nature.
I was reading all the "I Am Fully Open To Life and to it's Flow" that i have written in...That is why i love this place, writing.. blogging, whatever... release on type to review.. I see how i have been doing these past few years. i am happy to see i never stop flowing.. no...
Dog trips over trash can,
Dog picks it up with his mouth,
Chewing it to pieces of analysis,
Getting himself dirty with filth,
Dissecting the problem with its teeth,
Not afraid to dive into its problems,
Teeth for mind power,
Trash for problems,
Tongue for tasting the issue, how...
What is going on in my life these days, on this path i am on, is rocking my boat!!!! It's like blossoming and ripening with alittle bit of rottening too. It is confusing and bewildering.This new form that is coming to me is gentle, penetrating and persvasive. I need to be careful...
Recently I found myself on a new path, with new connections. I had to open myself up to recieve the signals, messages that I needed to begin new things, a new life. Which will help me to be whole again, to come closer to my center.
I must say that even a timely warning maybe seen...
The first of the year.. I started shedding old skins, throwing away things that no longer was needed in my life... or/nor wanted any longer. At times I started to panic, didn't know if I could change, get rid of old ways. I did, it wasn't easy but if I was going to grow and learn...
