…so much to  be grateful for

Birds at sea

The warmth of the sun, the cool sea breeze, the quiet beauty of the sea and sand, the flocks of birds, so many blessings to be grateful for.

The blessings of renewal, rebirth and rejuvenation in cyclical change

fall leaves city street.jpg.jpeg

A colorful, exquisite, collective reminder of the impermanence of all things, of the necessity of never-ending change in the life of all living things…a gentle and loving reminder of the cycle of life and the exquisite beauty of, and Natural need for endings, which make rebirth and renewal possible. The inevitability of change which cannot be fought, which must be accepted as the blessing it is.

The leaves are a reminder of the precious blessings in each moment. Each with its own story and individual and unique beauty as it reaches the end of its cycle, making way for new and continued Natural beauty and creation.

I have been away for some time now, also due to cyclical life changes, which we must accept without fighting them…we cannot control these life changes and upheavals, and resisting them can only lead to pain, frustration, anger and a feeling of helplessness.

Accepting all things as a blessing, with joy, gratitude, Faith and Freedom from Fear, makes moving through these changes much easier.  And when we look back at them, we may even understand why they happened!  The present is all we have.  And the present, following life’s upheavals, is a whole new blessing, whch may have been disguised but finally does reveal itself if we are mindful enough to appreciate it.

Sunset Over Several Days at Herzlia Beach

Just as Nature is in constant change, but is perfect as it is at every moment, so our lives are constantly changing, and must be accepted as perfect exactly as they are, each and every moment.

passiflora.jpgAfter a seemingly endless period of confinement I was finally able to get out of the house today and here are some of the blessings I was rewarded with during my short walk
In addition, the day was partly cloudy so the sun was not too hot and a beautiful pleasant cooling breeze was gently blowing , allowing me to enjoy my walk.

Magical, Mystical, Desert Lanscapes
Miracles and Majesty of Creation

sunset.jpeg

I recently spent two days in the South Judean Desert with my entire family, children and grandchildren…close to 30 adults and children ranging in age from 1 1/2 years to 21 years.

IMG-20140509-WA0054

It was a beautiful and blessed family event celebrating the Bar Mitzva of one of my grandsons.  It was in itself an emotionally charged two days filled with much joy and laughter and I am grateful as always for the amazing blessings continually sent my way.

 

20140509_110804To see so many people of all ages enjoying each others company brought tears of joy to my eyes more than once over the two days.

A family like this is not to be taken for granted and I sometimes find myself at a loss for words to express my gratitude to God.

Message from My Morning Meditation
laxman waterfall04

The photos in this post are all roads which I have walked in India. There were of course many more.

DSC04570

My life is a twisted turning road and I never know what awaits me around the next bend. But I travel this road in complete Freedom from Fear for I know without a doubt, with complete Faith in God and His loving Universe, that another wonderful exciting and beautiful surprise is waiting for me once I get around the curve.

IMG_1243
It may be a sharp and unexpected turn and I will have to navigate it carefully and slowly, but once I get past it, a whole new and wonderful vista appears before me once again.

I am truly blessed to have found this road of liberation and joy and love. God is the engineer and Master builder and administrator of this road, and He has graciously given me, and everyone, free access to it. We just have to be willing to take the first step into the unknown with Freedom from Fear, and complete acceptance and Faith in what lies ahead.

…or…How to Stay Focused while Being Mindful Along the Way

Beauty Along the Way

Beauty Along the Way

It is good to have focus in life, to have goals and desires, to make plans and do what needs to be done to move things forward.  That is the only way God and the Universe can do their part to make things happen.

But sometimes, if we focus ONLY on our goals, we miss the opportunity to appreciate the most beautiful blessings sent us daily, things which are around us everywhere, right under our nose, just waiting to be noticed.

Just to give you two examples

Today, I went to the beach with my daughter and granddaughter, to enjoy a sunny day out of doors and just relax.

Stay Focused but Be Mindful

Stay Focused but Be Mindful

When we arrived, we could not park in the usual parking lot close to the entrance, and had to walk some distance to get down to the beach.  We could have complained about this, letting it spoil the fun of going to the beach, but instead, we walked slowly and patiently along, enjoying the breeze, talking etc., and taking time to look around and SEE and BE.  And we were rewarded with the beautiful works of art you see in the photos of the flowers.

flowers along the way

Our goal was to sit in the SUN and enjoy the beach but we found ourselves facing a sky full of clouds.  That certainly would seem to spoil our day if our only chance at enjoyment and pleasure was reaching our goal of sitting in the sun.  But instead, we appreciated the fact that we were not too hot and enjoyed the wonderful sky paintings the clouds made as they changed shape, color and direction.

Cloud Paintings

Just a couple of shots to give you an example.

Sun Trying to Break Through the Clouds

So remember, goals are wonderful things, as long as they do not take away from our being mindful of all the blessings along the way to that goal.

Sun Trying to Break Through the Clouds

Sun Trying to Break Through the Clouds

And if , upon reaching what we thought would be our destination, we find things to be different than we imagined, or planned, we must flow with the new situation and enjoy it to the fullest as well.

All things happen as they were meant to, at the time they were meant to, and in the way they were meant to, always for our Higher Good.

20140301_115641

Our job is to be grateful for all, and to experience all things with acceptance, joy, gratitude, Faith and Freedom from Fear.
