Imagination Run Amuck…

What is it that frightens you?  Keeps you from doing what you’d like to do?  Keeps you held hostage by the very fear of wondering, “what if something bad happens?”  Maybe you feel you will lose your job, relationship, friends, house…whatever?  Fear, of course, serves a purpose…We don’t jump off cliffs for fear of dying.  We don’t stick our hands on an open flame for fear we will get burned.  We don’t step in front of a car for fear we will be run over…But are these really “fears” or is it merely common sense?

What do you suppose we could accomplish if we all simply realized fear is the workings of our own imagination and if we learn to control our imagination, we control our fear?

Most of us fear something, and we really have no clue if what we fear will ever come to fruition…we just fear it.  Could what we fear be a possible consequence? What if we looked at fear as a “curse?” How could we rid ourselves of this “curse?”  To quote a line from one of my favorite movies, “It’s not the curse, it’s the power you give the curse.”

If we finally break free of our fear and do something anyway, we find out that the consequence we feared would happen is not the ONLY thing that COULD happen in that particular situation…in fact, you may find a very different outcome, one you did NOT imagine…but the only way to find out is to try.

Don’t worry, I fear a lot, myself, but to fear is not to live, because you cannot truly “live” while you fear. You can be comfortable in the knowledge that you have nothing to fear if you do not go forward with an idea or plan, but is “comfortable” REALLY living?

So, today, I will begin my journey into the unknown…I will take one of my long sought after dreams and begin fulfilling it, knowing that if I don’t even try, I will never know what could have been…And along the way, I might actually learn something about truly living!

Magnificent, Instead!

What cares do I have, that eat up my days,
drive me insane with worry and pain.
How did I get them, from where did they come?
I search deep down, to the pit of my soul,
and find their not there, so is my search done?

Then a very small voice, so still and alive,
beckons me listen, so I’m not deprived.
“Your worry’s, your problems” it says with such force,
“Are troubling for sure, but derive from mankind…
I would not wish them for you, not ever, of course.”

“You are My Dear Child, and only the best,
is what you deserve, yet time you do waste,
searching for things which hold no meaning for you,
wondering blindly, stumbling round in the dark.
Why do you do that?  Better get on the move!”

“You have lots to accomplish, things to get done.
Things to experience, get out, have some fun!
You’re truly Divine, accept it, move ahead!
Shed the thick coat of troubles you’ve wrapped round yourself.
Embrace who you are, be magnificent, instead!”

Expression Unfolding…

Moving toward the unknown,
away from the comfortable,
Adrenaline rushes, emotions scatter.

Fear of the unfamiliar,
heightens as we progress,
but we’re not turning back.

Our adventure begins,
moving slowly, at first,
as our elation wells.

There’s only one way to continue,
Swallow pride, forget the past,
catch our breath and press on.

Forage our own way, something we can respect.
Nothing desolate or dark, desperate or lonely.
More souls than you know are seeking the same.

Tranquility ushers forth out of the depths of the chaotic,
Only now do we comprehend our journey’s purpose,
as the truth penetrates deep into our core.

We awaken, one day, to the truth of our purpose.
A notion more powerful than yet we’ve envisioned
Only then do we become what we’ve been created to be…
An emaculate expression of the passion of Our Beloved…

Unwritten…

Someone said start over
any time, anywhere
and I’ve taken it to heart,
my own cross to bear,
But the past keeps bleeding
over into the future.
Now if I could stop that,
Might get where I want to.

Until one day I realize,
as I start once again,
I am stronger than this,
and my soul starts to mend.
The clearing I see,
not too far ahead,
is beautifully bright,
not filled with dread!

The fear that I hold
in the palm of my hand
is unrealized,
drifting away like the sand
on a beach with the water,
chasing forward and back
I find that courage
isn’t something I lack.

My future, I find
is steady and sure,
if I keep my head clear
and keep my thoughts pure.
So I can move forward
knowing I can still win
my future’s unknown,
it’s truly unwritten!

About Prayer…

The Bible tells us to “pray without ceasing” and for many of us, we feel we have no time for that…The Bible also tells us not to ramble on when we pray, so, wouldn’t “praying without ceasing” be considered “rambling on?”

Let me just say, from my own experience, when you apply positive energy and meditative prayer to your daily life, and you just say fast prayers throughout the day, on a regular basis, you will find that you will catch yourself actually praying for others when you didn’t even know you were!

What a blessing…You are literally “praying without ceasing!”  How amazing is that!?!  AND, if you keep it short, it is really easy to send that positive energy to others throughout the day, training your subconscious to continue it!!!

SOOOO…with that being said, I would like to remind you that Our Beloved knows EXACTLY what everyone on this earth needs…and you can pray for EVERYONE by simply using a few words…this is just a suggestion;

Blessed Divine, Mother and Father to us all, Creator of all things, the people of this world are in search of help…You know what they need, You know what they are striving for.  May Your love, light and grace bless them where they are, and focus their attention on their intention…Thank You for Your guidance, understanding and, most of all, Your love and light in my life.  So be it!

You can find something as simple and easy that suits you…and viola…you are praying for the whole world!!!

If things don’t get better, don’t get discouraged, just keep sending that positive energy!  You need to remember one of the most important things about positive energy and prayer…people need to be willing to accept it!  It still doesn’t hurt to continue praying for everyone…Who knows when someone will “let their guard down” and actually accept someone else’s positivity into their lives!?!  And, their outcome is not up to us, it is ultimately up to them…But, again, it does us absolutely NO HARM to put the positive out there…NONE!  Ever heard “what goes around comes around?”  Yep, you put positive energy out there, and you will be blessed!

So…get to it!  Send out all the positivity you can…and may you reap the blessings of your own positive nature!

Seeking…

In silence we sit and mourn our loss,
even though we know not what’s missing.
Life passes us by while we try to keep up,
with those all around us who “worship” things.

They seem so happy, we think to ourselves,
so we collect what they have, and think we’re ok,
never understanding our greatest treasure
cannot be bought, sold or acquired.

It’s been with us all along…

Yet, we never acknowledge Its presence,
never hear Its cry for freedom.
It’s held in bondage as we seek
the material in a material world.

Our potential is there, but suppressed.
We never figure out that without It,
we will continue to silently mourn,
continue to struggle in vane.

And we struggle on…

Each of us must come to our own reckoning
of what truly frees our soul.
For that is where our truth lies…
That is where our potential will sour.

And we can then become what we desperately seek…
Happy!

Ever-Changing…

We all seem to be experiencing stressful times.  As I have said before, this blog is as much about passing on “wisdom” to our selves, helping us learn something, as it is helping someone else realize…We are just NOT alone in our challenges!

Today, there is a whole lot of unnecessary strife in the world and some of us are looking outside ourselves for the answers…maybe waiting on someone else to “do the fixing.”  While the “unnecessary strife” does seem to come from without,  with corrupt governments here and around the world making every wrong decision they can, our families and friends, and sometimes even ourselves, doing the same thing, everyone is looking for a quick fix…something to take the edge off.

Sure, we can look at everything as negative, but what if we turned that around?  What if we looked at everything as an opportunity for change?  Maybe there is something we have been needing to change and maybe this is your “wake-up” call?  Ever wanted to do something different?  Make another choice?  Change things around?  Maybe we should take advantage of the opportunity to change our lives…

I am sure many of us are saying, “But make changes now, with so much going on already?”  Well, why not?  We just have to be willing to take the first step or two!  Nothing will ever change if you stay in the same spot…You have to be willing to make that first step…

So…that all said, is there anything you have ever wanted to do differently?  Anything that might need to be eliminated?  Beefed up?  Added to?  Or, maybe just tweaked?  You are an amazing expression of Creation with gifts that you have yet to even embrace!  make the most of your experience here!  Why not vow to start creating a change or two…see where it takes you…then, if need be, create some more…lighten up, get out there and make a difference in your own life.  Don’t be afraid to become ever-changing and see where it takes you!  Who knows?  You might just be making a difference in the lives of every one around you!

Blessings All Around!

If, today, you feel led to pray or meditate for someone, remember, there are SO many out there who could use positive thoughts, why not pray for all?  People everywhere are in need of Divine comfort and love, why nor extend it to everyone?

Remember, too, blessing your friends is not that hard to do, but blessing your enemy…now THAT takes strength and courage!

Treat the world as you would yourself…Be kind, generous, thoughtful and compassionate…Use your Divine Energy to reach out to the whole world…And, as for you???

May your life today be filled with True love and light, and may you be blessed today, and always!

Together…or not…

In times of strife and trouble, we can either stand together,
at which point we could achieve better results more quickly,
or, we can stand alone, face our fears alone, be alone.

The situation in the world, not just one nation, country, city or town,
seems dismal, dire, and distressing…and yet we stand alone.

Those who stand alone make desperate decisions
that have a devastating impact on their lives.

Some demand that others acquiesce to their demands,
even while offering help,
As if they, or their country, is more important…

In the eyes of the Supreme Creator, we are all equal.
No one is better, or worse, than anyone else…
A hard concept to grasp, but true none the less!

While we all make different decisions, thus have different outcomes,
it doesn’t change the fact that we are all still the same in the eyes of the Divine.

Today, look upon all people as equal…
Having the very same right to life, freedom and prosperity
as everyone else…
help them to become the very best they can be.
In doing so, you also help yourself,
for how can a planet where everyone becoming their best
be a bad thing???

Intentionally Positive…

Want to see some interesting news?  Take a look at this…Jellyfish are shutting down nuclear power plants!  This was sent to me by another friend and great spiritual soul like ourselves.  Read the story…While humankind has no regard for the
environment and its own lives, nature can, and apparently will, take care of it itself!  It is amazing!  Also, these photos of grains of sand remind me of the first stanza of a poem by William Blake,

To see the world in a grain of sand,
And Heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
and eternity in an hour…

Amazing what the world can do…As many of us who study alternative medicine know, some cultures view the body as a mini solar system.  I think we would be very foolish to think that if our own bodies can heal themselves, given the right energy, so, too, can our earth.  Does this mean we need to trash her?  Heavens no!!!  This world is amazing…even if some of the people on her are totally unaware!

What we do need to do is realize the potential in positive energy and concentrate all we can on it…Positivity can change our outlook and our attitude, our health…and even the world (population and the physical earth)!

Today, may we vow to always strive to look at the world, events and our own lives in the most positive light we can…and by doing so, maybe we can change the outlooks, attitudes, and health of the world!
