PERFECTION IN UNIQUENESS

We are spectacular BECAUSE of our differences. They are what make us Simply Unique and Perfect.

Here is a small sampling of the huge variety of flowers I encountered while doing my errands in town today

The Divine Artistry and Creativity of Nature is truly astounding. No human hand could ever produce such perfection, such variety, such uniqueness.

These are all “Flowers”, but each is individually amazing, spectacular, and wondrous in its own beauty.  Each one is completely different than the other.  Their being different doesn’t make them any less amazing, spectacular or wondrous.  Simply Unique and Perfect.

In the same way, we have all been created by God, Divinely special, unique, perfect.  We are precise works of Divine Art, designed and created exactly as we should be. PERFECT exactly as we are.  UNIQUE in ways that are astoundingly beautiful.

gratitude

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

…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.

I AM so truly blessed-and happy to be back!

…a few quiet moments to restore balance and harmony in these difficult times
wpid-20140728_193042-1.jpg

Those of you who follow me on Facebook may have read my post from the beginning of the week where I wrote “Feeling Hopeful and Optimistic”.  It actually seemed to me that things were heading to an end and sanity would be restored.

It seemed like the idea of “quiet being answered by quiet” would work, and then we would just have to finish the work of finding and destroying as many of the tunnels as possible That at last the deaths and casualties of innocent civilians and the destruction would cease on both sides. And hopefully while working on the tunnels, as few soldiers as possible would be injured or killed…was I really so naive? or just being honestly, innocently and truly optimistic?

After all, we’ve destroyed lots of rockets, and how many could they have left anyway? And once they could no longer throw death and destruction at us, we, of course, would no longer have reason for “disproportional” response. And then, just the tunnels, just the tunnels, just the tunnels to deal with.

So why does it continue and continue and continue? Could I really be so naive and innocent and ridiculously “hopeful and optimistic”?

Is there truly no end in sight to this continued conflict? These continued wars?

Will we eternally have to fight this enemy that so desperately wants to be rid of as that it would sacrifice its own children relentlessly and savagely to that cause? And will our own children who are now soldiers continue to die defending us? Will the children living through all this grow up  in a world of continued war and hatred?

How do we end this? How do we return to harmony, sanity, peace, permanently? And not just for a few precious moments every now and then during respites in the fighting and killing, or those precious few moments out in Nature?

wpid-20140728_190218.jpg

Are WE doing something wrong? Should we be using more force? Less force? Or is it just a loose-loose situation? Could it really be that there IS no peaceful solution? I refuse to imagine that that is so. But if, as they say, they truly “live” to see the end of Israel, and Jews everywhere, then the battle to survive is eternal for us?

It is now 5 AM. My mind is in a whirl, despairing thoughts going round and round, thoughts I don’t want to be thinking, but have no choice…I will continue to strive to maintain my own focus on Faith, Freedom from Fear, Peace, Sanity, Love, Optimism, Harmony

…but how long can I continue to feel “hopeful and optimistic” without feeling “foolish”?

…and as they say in Facebook statuses:  “feeling annoyed, confused, desperate, frustrated, angry, pained, pissed, threatened, heartbroken, discouraged, perplexed.”

Magical, Mystical, Desert Lanscapes
Miracles and Majesty of Creation

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.

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.

20140509_111100

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.
