Merrily Onward

Prometheus-One — weza777: ❥❥

So…

The picture on my main blog page….taken by me.. was part of my..”once upon a time” garden.

I still miss that house..and then…

I take a breath…

And don’t.

I have a lovely Jasmine making its own mark upon my heart these days…and new roses have thrived here at…

THE BUNGALOW

Yep….a baker’s dozen of months, since the unexpected…unrehearsed move….into a home that we did not want to buy…but did….

Yes..I have continued living..

even though..we both fell off the world we knew…

We realized..we had to leave…to find our way

Well..once awakened…it’s all a horrible relief anyway…..but I digress…

With every moment consciously pressing to the sight of myself…I balanced my smile better……..

I got into the rhythm of acceptance…I stopped carrying sad words….

And replaced them with the now common phrase that echoes daily in our home….still….

“ARE YOU KIDDING ME NOW..”

I said it so much that for my birthday this year..

My hubs had a license plate made for me….yep

“RUKDNME”

He has a sick and contagious humor…..

On May 27th this year, we started prepping our bungalow, for the exterior painting….and finally…on June 29th we were ready to put paint to roller and brushes..and begin..

This coming Sunday..we will be taking the final pictures of the completed works..where again we are reminded..why we both love to dance together…

We took a day, this past weekend..to NOT paint and drove to our local fruit barn and took Miss Beans..our Mini Whippet girl… in her stroller and we bought fruit and nuts..and fish food..to feed the Koi in their pond…Miss Beans loves the fish..

She will be 6 in November and she grew up feeding these fish every spring and summer…

They come right up to the shore and Miss Beans talks to them..little whisper barking..and tail wagging..

She was 8 weeks old..when she first met them… time does go merrily by…

Yes…we drove past the old house..that day too….for the first time since… the move….

We got to the house and my glorious garden…was gone….completely taken away as if it never existed..and bare dirt was left,…nothing growing..nothing thriving….and the house seemed sad…there was no rose garden for the birds to gather in…the emptiness was deafening

I have a picture, from 2014…as I was coming down my stairway..of a perfect rose bud…peaking through the top window at the entry..

I took a picture of its blooming..every day..each morning, with the sunrise…and then….one day..it became whole and gloriously happy….

It bloomed whole..the day we learned my hubs was cancer free….

Deep breath..a lot of life happened..at that house..

it was a glorious summer that year….

Letting go is always an awakening within itself…

We got back to THE BUNGALOW…… gloriously grateful…to be

Home…….

gypsies live here!

Birthed Within

“Do not let another day go by where your dedication to other people’s opinions is greater than your dedication to your own emotions!”

Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free

Anger paralyzes the breath….it is a helpless energy…that reflects the absence of control

Breathe…deeply…..one breath at a time….see closely from a distance….

It is many timelines, many inheritances….we are able to shed…..as we observe that which comes to the surface of ourselves.

We begin perceiving the deeper nature of the Self…. as we stop identifying with the surface-level expressions of our emotions…

Emotions point you to the doorway of self-knowing… they are not a destination…but indeed….a current that takes us there…..

“Do you imagine the universe is agitated? Go into the desert at night and look at the stars. This practice should answer the question.”

Goodness

“My friend, you see how perishable are the riches of this world; there is nothing solid but virtue.” 
― Voltaire

One must first know how to trust the self, in order to know how to trust at all….and this requires courage.

Courage is the foundation that gives reality to this trust.

We find our original goodness when we can discover and own these three attitudes.. deeply planted within us….

A trust in inner coherence itself (FAITH)

A trust that this coherence is positive and going somewhere good (HOPE)

A trust that this coherence includes me and even defines me (LOVE)

The Universal Christ by Richard Rohr

One must choose the best each day, without compromise. and nurture the best into habits.

Enough

“Hope is the thing with feathers 
That perches in the soul 
And sings the tune without the words 
And never stops at all.”

Emily Dickinson

May I walk every day unceasing on the banks of my water……

may my soul rest on the branches of the trees which I have planted…..

may I refresh myself in the shadow of my sycamore….

“If we will be quiet and ready enough, we shall find compensation in every disappointment.”

“They both listened silently to the water, which to them was not just water, but the voice of life, the voice of Being, the voice of perpetual Becoming.”

Hermann Hesse, Siddhartha

It’s all about Love, in the Light of Life… where….enduring our own darkness……and the satisfaction of our spiritual maturity…. fits comfortably……in the skin

At the gathering place, collected truths glisten in the light…. Where life and the belief of such merge…meld together…the place where energy filled our vessels and our vessels shattered and poured light ……..

We each gather here..arriving  slowly…shyly….collectively shinning…our shards of light…at this gathering place…of Humans knowing…..and living as…. Spirit in Matter….

Incarnated Souls….gathering to do life together…

Reverse Aging and Quantum Physics

The heavenly light you admire is fossil-light, it’s the unfathomably distant past you gaze into, stars long extinct

Joyce Carol Oates

The stars and their beautiful …mocking echoes…linger within us….

at such a great distance….can we feel such emptiness…

that reveals so much…..

It is about…a perfect moment….

where the origin of a beginning is felt

If I cried out, who would hear me up there, among the angelic orders?

Rainer Maria Rilke

We reach for words to speak in a voice that is both intimate and majestic on the mysteries of human life and our attempt….. to translate the angels language….. to use our self-consciousness to some advantage…. to transcend, through our art and the imagination, our self-deception and our fear.

There is no gentle here, but oh how it longs to be tender, and oh how it yearns to be soft.
