Thinking on where I find my strength today....and this is where it is. It is all about choices, my friends....all about what we choose to see, feel and think and act......Allow yourself to go with the flow, the current will carry you gently to where you need to be.
So, when the road gets bumpy and rough....where do you find your strength to carry on? What lifts you up?
Surround yourself with what uplifts you and inspires you, supports you and loves you just for who you are.
"Bathing in the clear water of the spiritual pond, the lotus' roots dig deep into the soil."
The roots of a lotus are in the mud, the stem grows up through the water, and the heavily scented flower lies pristinely above the water, basking in the sunlight. This pattern of growth signifies the progress of the soul from the primeval mud of materialism, through the waters of experience, and into the bright sunshine of enlightenment.
The muck and the mud is a field of blessing...
Om mani padme hum...( hail the jewel in the lotus)
Dear friends, perhaps you are wondering what this is all about? It's about awakening, realizing the Self and its many dimensions. I feel....I am finally waking up from a long slumber. I am waking up and I am remembering...
There is so much to take in, and it can at times be overwhelming, with so much information and knowledge out there streaming towards us. With open and non judgemental mind and an open heart, we will naturally absorb what suits us the best at the right time. There are many roads leading to the same source...That is the beauty of it....and don't forget to enjoy the journey.....
I am longing for quality time away, a break from everything....cleanse, clear and renew. I find the world way overstimulating....and it's just too much. Just think, no electricity, but a warm open fire, no massmedia of any sort....but the sound of the ocean waves and the breeze and the sound of your own heart, your own voice....no grocerystores that drain your wallet everytime you go with ingredients that you can't even pronounce, but to go out in the field and pick warm sunripened foods, straight from mother earth, loaded with nutrients.....and honor the animal that gives its life so that you can be strong.....to naturally drift off to sleep under the starfilled sky, and wake up refreshed at the first of light.....to be in sync with Nature the way it was intended. I am thinking I would be happy being a "hermit" somewhere, away from it all. I honestly don't need it but most of all, don't want it.
It has been very still here. Around me, as inside. It is a very good thing, although I don't always feel it along with the restlesness. I believe that stillness is a fertile period,....a preparation for greater things to come. In the stillness period, I don't do much, think much or say much....I am simply Being. For a while the energies around me was so intense, and so much happening and progressing, ........I think it was a bit too much. Maybe? Because aren't we supposed to only receive what we can handle? I don't know....
Anyway, I figured I better at least post some photo's if nothing else....until something else comes up.
So here's a mixture of pictures to gaze upon....Enjoy!
And last but not least the sun. As you can see she isn't showing completely round. There's some neat energy shooting out. Lately I have found the sun and the clouds very very interesting, as well as the night sky. There is a feeling.....a feeling that we are soon to recieve some answers.
