Almost seems boring to write a post about the ebb and flow of everyday life.  But “everyday life” is pretty much it.  It’s what we have.  It is a true adventure, with amazing surprises at every turn. Not yesterday, not tomorrow, but today…it IS the only true reality. And making the most of that reality, is what it’s all about.

Very often, everyday life is like a pleasant stroll along the seashore at sunset, with a cool ocean breeze gently blowing. But more often these days, it feels like a week long mountain trek over difficult terrain with a full pack to carry.  It is during these seemingly difficult periods, that we learn our most important lessons…

  • Gracious, grateful and JOYFUL acceptance of each moment, and of who, and HOW we are in each moment.

The lesson might include the rude awakening to our “older” self, which probably will include certain limitations, but will definitely include new horizons and vistas which we could never have even dreamed of in our younger years.  Learning to love ourselves completely, exactly as we are at the moment, is a great blessing.  Never forgetting the child within, is part of that lesson.  There is NO limitation to being in touch with our inner child, to being  “childlike” (not childish).  It is the secret of feeling young.  Age IS only a number, but there are changes (mostly physical) associated with that number. The challenge is appreciating these changes and flowing with them, not fighting against them.

LOOK YOUR AGE

These lessons  can help bring us closer to others as well…allowing us to feel truly part of the WHOLE.

Each of us has our own unique path, but we also experience many of the same things as others along our own individual paths. Recognizing our uniqueness, as well as our similarities, makes it so much easier for us to be of assistance to others…AND to ask for assistance from others..

Being of assistance has always been part of who I am.  But the learning to ask for, and RECEIVE assistance, has taken me a good part of a lifetime to learn.  But the learning, and finally acceptance of the lesson has enriched me more than I could ever have imagined…

Allow your everyday life to ebb and flow, to unwind, as it will.  Gratefully, joyfully, fearlessly accept it exactly as it is, with complete Faith that all is truly as it is meant to be, in each and every moment, for your Higher Good, according to Divine will.

I should have been flying into India tomorrow, but had to cancel my flight at the last minute. But life is beautiful and I am grateful for all things. I hope the person who bought my cancelled ticket at the last minute will enjoy India as much as I would have.

Much love light and JOY to all

To Let Go isn’t to forget, not think about, or ignore. It doesn’t leave feelings of anger, jealousy, or regret.

Letting Go isn’t winning and it isn’t losing. It’s not about pride and it’s not about how you appear and it’s not about obsessing or dwelling on the past.

Letting Go isn’t blocking memories or thinking sad thoughts and it doesn’t leave emptiness, hurt, or sadness. It’s not giving in or giving up.

Letting Go isn’t about loss and it’s not defeat. To Let Go is to cherish memories, but at the same time to overcome and to move on. It is having an open mind and confidence in the future.

Letting Go is accepting. Letting Go is learning and experiencing and growing.

To Let Go is to be thankful for the experiences that made you laugh, made you cry, and made you grow. It’s about all that you have, all that you had, and all that you will soon gain.

Letting Go is having the courage to accept change and the strength to keep moving.

Letting Go is growing up. it is realizing that the heart can sometimes be the most potent remedy.

To Let Go is to open a door and to clear a path and to set yourself free.▼

LETTING GO
Release anger,
Release fear,
Release Worry
Embrace love
Embrace faith
Embrace calm acceptance.

The river will take you swiftly along at certain points
And allow you periods of motionless calm
But the current will always be there to move your boat along
You may see places you would like to stop at
But the choice is not always yours
Release into the flow of the river
And calmly and joyfully accept whatever direction it takes you.

with much love light and JOY

lake by miriams house8-gg

I lick my wounds

cleansing them of all toxins and sorrow

I shine from within

and touch the place where true joy and happiness reside

I open to receive

Angelic Guidance, Direction and Wisdom

I am safely enveloped in Divine Protection

I blend with my Soul

and delight in the magical beauty

and grandeur of each new day and each new blessing

I Am At Peace!

Divine work, beauty and blessing.

Woods and Wadi

The subtle glow of light dancing through the trees

Creating a rich tapestry of colors and hues in all shades of green and brown

True artistic creativity at its best

Divine work, beauty and blessing

Visual poetry for the physical eye

…and for the soul.

ALONE

lotus pond sarnath

ALONE

Why?

Why are others always an intrusion?

I don’t seek them yet they find me…

Must I become invisible to be ALONE?

Or is this part of who, what I am

Flowing along and blending into the river of common pain

Floating as a log for those drowning to latch on to.

Where is the log meant to keep me afloat?

Or have I been given the strength to stay afloat ALONE?

Do I draw my strengths from my ALONENESS?

Or from the giving OF myself?

Who will be there to keep me from drowning

When there is no more strength to draw on?

I am surrounded by heavenly love and protection…

Spiritually I am never ALONE…

But…

I am physical as well

As is my life…

All the new that awaits me…

All the changes to be made…

All the wonders still to reveal themselves…

Are not meant to be experienced ALONE

My soul, my heart, my body all yearn

For the one with the same yearnings

To continue the journey together in our ALONENESS…

Can there be such a miracle?

with love light and JOY

LONE LEAF

TEARS
A wellspring trying to break loose,
And release its burden of unshed tears.
A lifetime worth of sorrow and pain…
Loneliness and Aloneness…
Of being known and understood by no one but You.
I’ve chosen my own way-no complaints.
But at times the burden is unbelievably heavy.
Can I get a porter for a few days???

Just a little background…this poem “came to me” in 2006 and below  you can read the circumstances which forced it to find its way to me if you are interested:

July 24th 2006

A little background.  I do not “write” poetry. It seems to be sent to me already written, and I am just asked to get paper and pen and record what is being “said” to me. It goes straight down on the paper with no changes or work involved. What you see here is just as it went onto the paper this morning.
>It comes after a month of dealing with my Dad’s hospitalization, nursing facility and finally being released home today. In addition, I have left my job, (a true blessing I assure you), one of my daughters has moved in with me (forcing me to give up my clinic room), another daughter is leaving to set up her life in Boston and is also staying with me the past 2 weeks, another daughter arrived this week after 3 years of Embassy work in Uruguay with husband and 3 children. As they are Gush Katif “homeless”, they have no home, no job, etc., and also find themselves in what will be a very stressful month until they find a place to live, get their kids registered in school and find work. Another daughter is also moving with her family from her city home to a country home and are also dealing with moving. And of course my youngest, my son, has moved in together with his wonderful girlfriend in Jerusalem (you can see pics of them on the post “A couple of lovely couples”). So, it has not been a quiet period and I guess the events have finally gotten to me in some way. Although my daily meditation, pranayama, yoga etc., has kept me generally quite relaxed and unstressed…just flowing…and my complete faith in God and His Universe has kept me from worrying about the future, as well as my daily dose of Reiki and the 5 Reiki principles which I meditate on each morning (see the blog title for a list of them), which give me much strength to deal tranquilly with whatever comes my way, knowing that all is for the Higher Good of all concerned. However, we are human, and so, apparently the following poem found its way to me today…

with love light and JOY
