I am your Earth,
You are my Rain.
I am not much of a net person, just starting… but I do see some things there, like most everyone.
Last night, after work, I went to my boyfriend , who was watching You Tube, a part where hurt or sick Eagles
are collected and rescued, when possible, and helped back to their Lives.
It was very touching, like every time one sees or experiences a Being helping another Being, much Compassion and Love.
And there is much on the rescue theme, as you probably know.
Then, since we are curious, we wanted to see more Mars pictures, but could not find them yet. Instead, we found
a panel of experts from Nasa, answering questions to whoever would call and ask.
And, (surprise surprise), children were calling, and time was given to answer them also. One could say, “Of course,
that is how it should be!”
We all agree, and let us give more of that respect, they are our future!
What a sweet sweet World we ALSO have!
At times, when I am lucky, I find good messages all over. This one I have had for a long long time on my table, and I am reading it every day. Who or where it came from, I do not remember, maybe Miguel Ruiz, maybe Byron Katie, maybe someone else…
Anyway, I like to share it with you, for inspiration and reflection. My little paper says:
NOTHING OF WHAT YOU THINK IS TRUE.
TO KNOW THIS IS FREEDOM.
And most often it is like that 🙂
I was working for a friend some days ago. An important message from my Helpers was that she she should take care of herself with Kindness and Gentleness, which I told her of course.
But then I was wandering about the two words. Was it not the same thing?
Apparently not, since Helpers said both. So I went looking on Wikipedia 🙂 , and I like to share with you.
Kindness seems to contain Amability, showing Consideration for others, it is marked by acts of Generosity and Care, and is not concerned with expectations, rewards, or praise.
Gentleness seems to be more like a virtue, Mildness, “resistance” to brutality, does not submit to tyranni or violence, and responds with tender Awareness to others’s experience of pain. Then of course one can “go deeper”…
Both were described as “concepts” to apply/use on others. But we can use them on ourselves too. 🙂
Gentle Loving (I add) Kindness…how beautiful! Beautiful …Like a Flower.
Let us put a little more of that into our Lives, and our Relations.
Scientific and logic explanations YES!
So amazing when science touches philosophy touches spirituality touches our world and ourselves!
Gratitude for the thousands bridges created “In Between” through this years…
Wonderful to hear what our Helpers told us being “proven” now!
And still…. there are Miracles everywhere, explained and rationalized some of them, still Miracles!
Like the Ice Flowers on a cold winter,
Like the Misteries of our Bodies, our Brain, our Conciousness,
And the Rest
If we met a wounded Child,
or a wounded Animal,
it would touch our Heart…
We would feel Compassion,
we would do anything to help.
At times we meet our Inner Child,
who is also hurt and wounded.
At times we embrace it, listen to it,
and work together.
At times we treat it like a hindrance,
and try to cover it up,
or make it disappear.
What is the difference
between the wounded Kid or Animal,
and our own?
Paths usually start with enthusiasm,
Sometimes they get easier,
sometimes they get harder.
If they get harder,
moving along the line of least Resistance,
or accepting and Surrendering,
is up to Us.
Right and wrong do not exist,
Since the Truth is
there is no Truth.
Shame on you!?
If it comes …
Look at it,
Listen to what it has to say,
and dissolve it.
You are alright,
perfectly all right!
You are growing,
doing what You can…
will bring You further,
where You need to be.
there is no need for “that”!
My Friend and I had been on a long city walk. It was Saturday, and People and Dogs were out, strolling with distance.
It had been good to see and feel both the city landscapes, the Waterfront, and the People. We were a little tired, but satisfied, and time to go home now soon.
We found a free bench, and sat down, each one on one’s side, for the last sharing, before leaving each other.
We noticed a very small and short Person, wearing a mask, walking further away. “Who can that person be?” We looked at each other, and at the Person.
The corona mask filled much too much in the little body…It looked weird, and, with all respect, a little funny.
The small Person approached as we kept on talking, and … surprise surprise, came to sit down right between us.
We greeted her(?) both with our eyes, finished our conversation, greeted again, and left.
What was that all about? Even in the middle of “corona times”? (the brain, the brain…)
We both agreed that it may be about the “need” of Nearness, or was it maybe the need of “breaking rules”, or “not understanding” them, or “not caring”, or ?
In those few moments, the Energy had been sweet and gentle between us,
Whatever and whoever she (?) was,
we had “touched” and “recognized” each other’s Presence,
through our smiling Eyes,
in a moment where corona did not exist,
had no sense or
no power, at all…
And I got touched in my Heart.
Little social contact, little entertainment, no shopping, no culture,
where to go, what to do, and especially how to feel? For how long?
Corona times are tough, and a few of us are “closing down”.
No reason for that.
Some “wise” ones may comment “It’s all in the Mind”…
Is it enough when you are single, and feel lonely?
Alone we come here, and alone we are going to leave…
Feeling lonely is a choice we do not need to bend to, but observe.
And “Boredom” , and “feeling silly”, and “purposeless” is also okay.
Let us be our Friend, and forget our Judge for this time.
Let us forget that we need to “produce” anything at all, if we cannot.
Let us Embrace this Shining Being we each one of us is
with Compassion and Gentleness,
we are Life, we are Spirit on a journey,
and everyday can be a Miracle, whatever happens.
We have so much! We can reach out! We can create and do!
Nature is still there!
There are so many Blessings also, if we look.
Gratitude may save our Lives,
or at least help us, if we allow it to flow.
Take care dear People!
Messages can come millions ways, and they do.
Some are made for us to buy or to “convert” to something,
some are “nonsense” and useless,
and some are precious and may give some kind of Fruit.
The other day in a supermarket,
I got a “good one”, that I like to share with You.
It stood written in green, on a cardbord box (without any other sign of product or publicity),
and it said: “DO WHAT YOU LOVE, LOVE WHAT YOU DO”.
Well, a good reminder, don’t You think?
Thanks to the Ones who produced it!
Some of us (couples and families), are still, or even more, under pressure, these days.
Not talking about economics, or political situation, the whole rest…
It may feel like corona never ends, it will, but it will take time, and patience until then.
When we are confined from our Freedom, and restricted by forces we have not voluntarily chosen, we FEEL PRISONERS. Even we would rebel , we would still be or feel restricted in many ways. And none of us likes that.
But WE DO HAVE CHOICES, since we are confined in our “inner core”, more or less home, with few around. We still are, in a way, free, free inside.
The closest People (our partner, our kids) may become the focus of our frustrations, and our projections. Our rage may express many ways, and not necessarily be “understood” or “accepted” by them. They too have their own “issues”. All tensions may end by poisoning us, if it goes “wrong”, or by enriching us, if it goes “right”.
WE CHOOSE, not corona, not government, not restrictions.
“Things” to maybe reflect upon, in order not to submit or destroy our Relations, which are most important as the nearest Circle, could be…. (And surely there re plenty more…), to remember that…
Restrictions and what is happening “out there” is NOT what is happening in our Hearts.
(Our Hearts may be sad these days, or heavy, still…)
Our HEARTS, and our SOULS are and always will be FREE AND HEALTHY, whatever happens.
And LOVE, COMPASSION and PATIENCE always win, if there is anything to win, and our People are worth it.
We as Human Beings do have an exclusive way of expressing called COMMUNICATION.
At this moment we do need to TELL OUR TRUTH, masks are not possible when we are pressed together.
We have an opportunity to get to know ourselves and each other deeper, in “good and bad/black and white”, and “silly”, since there is no place to hide.
When we allow ourselves to EXPRESS sincerely, but keeping our Heart with us, WE MAY LEARN AND GROW , both within ourselves and within our closest Relations.
Another instrument we can use is LISTENING, still WITH OUR HEART.
And give ROOM, and moments of REST AND PEACE TO EACH ONE TO BE. It just needs to be taken care of.
We do have NATURE out there, to be with, and recharge.
We have SILENCE to turn to, good books, wise words by wise teachers, creative options, and prayers, meditation, blessings and gratitude to turn to. We got friends we can contact.
Some of us even have a spirituality to turn to. So many treasures!
Let us focus on what WE DO HAVE, instead of focus on what we do not.
And it all will probably be easier. (Well, if I did not believe it, I would not be writing it).
Take care, be good!
The Troll, (maybe this one ?),
is Trolling much these days, 🙂 …
ups and downs, ups and downs,
a good new of Hope,
a bad new of Collapse,
a good one again,
and so forth…
The Troll is Trolling
in our Lives this time…
The Troll is,
it just is.
We may need to
learn to “Surf”,
and better learn it well,
That Everything is
That our Planet’s body,
and all other Beings’s bodies
are Healing and Healthy.
That we recognize our Light,
the others’s Light,
and act accordingly.
That we accept our Strenght
and our Limits,
and move beyond.
and Compassion Grows.
And the Rich shares,
as the Poor does.
And we understand,
that we All
depend on one another.
Let it be fresh,
Good new year!
At this moment to keep balance is even more important.
“Hugging Trees” has become ordinary after all, so let us do that,
but… do we know what we are doing?
Does the Tree wish to be hugged?
A Tree is a living Being, with its own Life and Energy, its own purpose.
As a living Being, whether or not we believe or feel we all are connected,
a Tree deserves RESPECT.
Trees are our Friends, and give us more than we give them.
Trees have a deep understanding of the Elements,
of “Earth and Sky connection”, and of grounding.
And Trees are generous and benevolent Beings,
and may give us good advice if we are ready to listen.
So, let us find a Tree to become friend with,
visit it often (and now dark comes earlier, so it is easier to “hide”),
“be with it” for a while, train in listening to it,
communicate and learn from it.
Trees are not our INSTRUMENTS to discharge into,
unless one has their permission.
So, ask permission if you need to do it,
once you know each other,
when you feel the time is there,
and it is necessary.
Enjoy the preciousness of your friendship,
and maybe ask to learn about grounding?
Enjoy this beautyful adventure!
And be a little happier together.
If you have no Tree but you can see one far away, connect anyway…It is a little harder, but possible.
And if no Trees at all, try to remember one that impressed you in the past, hold it in your mind, even better draw a picture, and ask it for connection with you. Possible too.
A few of us are very good in this period, others suffer much.
This is dedicated to the ones who suffer. A reflection, hopefully an inspiration.
If we now turn “it” around…
We have received the “gift” of more Space, more Room, and more Silence.
The “gift” of trying some kind of Isolation, which we probably never would have chooses by free will.
We are not alone, we are “just” more isolated than before…
We have received the “gifts” of less distractions, less shopping, less “must do, must see, must meet”, and less decorations.
Less chaos, in the chaos. If we choose to find it.
Less learning from the outside, more learning from the inside. See who we are. And we are fine.
If we manage to accept, discover and integrate the possibilities of this moment, we can enrich ourselves.
By “resting” in ourselves, we nourish ourselves, and prepare to meet the others again later, more fully, more intense, more living.
It could be much worse…
Think! It took such a tiny thing to turn everything around…
What we considered “obvious” was not. Our freedom was not.
Nothing really was, or is, granted.
We see it now.
Let us be grateful for all we have, our Lives, our Friends, our Hearts, our Planet.
And keep the Spirit up,
create “good Energy” inside and around,
so it all works out smoothly,
and we heal soon.
However stressed, restless, lonely, depressed or spaced out, happy, light, loving, or numb, Earth our Mother is still there, stable, wild, nurturing, all embracing.
It is the One, “our” Planet, “our” Home, where we started, and where we will end, in this Life, in these Bodies.
Earth we can always go back to. It is everywhere, underneath us, underneath everything.
Earth is generous, does not judge, accepts.
We are sharing it with millions other Beings, big small, all kinds. It is the largest Body, and Being, here.
It is ever present in its Vibration, in its Voice, through its manifestations.
Have we gone “far away”, forgotten our Gratitude to it, it still is there, for us to reach, for us to connect.
And Connection has many many paths.
It starts by our will, a decision, an intention, an opening to the possibility of contact, not from some belief or religion or theory.
It starts by directing our hearts, our words, our thought, our attention to it.
It starts by willing to open to it, to listen to it, and to feel it.
However lost we may be, any kind of contact is Healing.
Naked feet on its Body are beneficial, our Time spent together, our Prayers are beneficial.
Are you longing, and it feels far? It is down below everything we have built, ready, awake.
And the contact is precious and fruitful, and free.
(hear eventually on You Tube, “Earth Connection”, more visualizations coming soon.)
Whoever we are, wherever we live, and whatever we think or believe caused this worldwide thing called corona to “happen”, the fact is that we all are in it, one way or the other.
Exactly like climate change, and many other common issues on our Earth. Going “better” here, going “worse” there…
And whether we believe, feel or think, that we are One Conciousness, or not, we still all have to deal with all the issues, included this one, here in this Life.
Ohhhh! Who am I to speak and to be listened to? Just one of us. Anyone has the right and duty to express, or to remain silent.
I intake my place, “banal, right, wrong, wise”, if all these definitions have a meaning…
So, an “observation” here, you probably also have done…
Where are we? What can we do?
I would love to have a “solution”, but I obviously do not, or maybe I do, or maybe we do?
Maybe we can make “miracles”? In the quantum world, it should be possible.
It seems to me that four main “opposite” directions have appeared, probably more if we look closer.
And most of us move between these, trying to find some kind of balance. And they all are somehow “contagious”, and spread, exactly like corona. So…
Some of us seem to have “understood” and “accepted” that this new “state” we all are deeply involved in, can be used to “go deep into” what we otherwise may have interest in, maybe “difficulties with”, and usually “no time” for.
We “move inwards”, explore, and maybe “learn and grow” (hopefully).
We take the “we got to make the best out of it”, “shit happens sometimes”, or “I do not care, it will pass” position.
We, others, are “frozen” and have become “victims”. We fall into dispair and depression. Isolation makes us numb and passive, or fear disables us from any action or reaction. We are slowly drowning.
We, others, are “embraced” by rage, and engage in “fights” directed outward, and at times also inward.
There is no “right and wrong”, or at least, I am not the judge.
Though the “result” of our position may be of quite a different nature.
Swim, drown, or ban, our choice.
(And let us not be mistaken, we all move through all these, and more, states).
It would be very easy to say this is “my way”, and this is “how we survive”. There are thousands, millions ways to go about. If they work… maybe we got to pick some up and try, or to invent them.
Then, there is the “other dimension” to it, that some of us are into, too.
Transcendence… Moving a little “further away”, observing the Energy of what is happening, and dealing with this however we can, know and believe is “proper”.
And in any case, release or transform the Energy that “hurts us” into the one we can live and be “strong and comfortable” with , without closing our eyes, be false to ourselves, or get stuck in the “silly side” of the ego.
Transcend and sublimate from/in the “we all are One” position. And work in/from that dimension.
All positions will influence ourselves, our Relations, and our World.
Apathy, fear, and rage, are not very productive, when allowed to eat us up. Rage and fear can be transmuted into action that makes sense, without us being a “victim” of them.
And, should we believe that we all are One, let us watch, choose carefully, and do what is needed.
Let us NOT allow this thing, or anything else, to fuck us up!
Let us Live the best we can.
Health, Peace and Love to you, dear People.
