…went out of fashion,what feels like ages ago, long away in the pasta.
Most of us do not receive handwritten letters any longer, but a short time ago, I got one from a friend from teen-age times, wonderful!
Reading it touched me…I had to find the “right time and energy” to answer, and yesterday I did.
How to explain oneself and one’s life after so many years? No problem!Like in those old days, the empty page opened and words were created from a deep deep warm place inside myself, and they rolled and rolled down until it was finished.
I had forgotten how it felt, it felt good and strong and intimate and true. My handwritting, energy and concentration or if you want let go and open, my Heart opening, the time dedicated, all those gifts…given to a paper to be received by someone…
A humble,simple and beautyful experience, alive again….:)
In connection with the Equinox, and the diminishing of natural Light from now on, I got inspired to talk about our enviromental- responsibility . Prayers are good, but actions are too.
Following we all know, but tend to forget maybe?
We have two plans we ought to look into: the inner, and the outer. What is healthy for us as Human Beings, and what is healthy for our enviroment and the Planet?
Choices have to be taken and the “discipline” kept and refreshed.
We all are going to use more electricity now, to balance the missing of Light. Checking out how much electricity we need, instead of abusing it? Switching off what is possible?
And many of us are going to use more net maybe, more phone? Maybe meeting people live instead , and mobile free days? Let us check it out and reduce wisely.
Many of us are going to start our warming systems, whatever it is. Use that wisely, where and when necessary?
And maybe drive more car? Using our little trips to byke or exercise our feet, and our bodies instead?
We are going to use more Food, and more Water, . Cleaner food if we can afford it ? Let us check it out and reduce or change wisely.
How much do we really need to wash our clothes? Air does the same, it removes most smells if we allow it to.
Water we can save by turning it off when we brush teeth, while we soap our hands, by recycling water that is almost clean to give our gardens, or our toilet, less meaningless showers, better quality and really enjoyed ones? And washing small clothing items while we are there anyway?
Our rubbish sorted out, it is wonderful and feels so good! It worthy!
Donations instead of greed? Second hand or/and exchange?
The list can go on. We all know what we “should” do, we just need to reflect once a while, and keep it up.
Let us take a WOW here on the Equinox, a wow about respecting ourselves and the Earth as much as we can.
IT IS ABSOLUTELY AND TOTALLY WORTHY, NO MATTER HOW SMALL OUR STEPS ARE! THEY WILL BECOME BIGGER AND HAVE A DEEPER IMPACT! TOGETHER WITH PRAYER AND GOOD ENERGY WE MAKE THE CHANGE POSSIBLE.
Maybe, as one gets older, (or , at least me) , one reflects more? or less? Actually both…
Maturity called “the age of Wisdom”, let us hope and trust 🙂
Getting older is quite fine, one has been around for a long while, one has tried and lived what one wishes, and maybe knows what to try and how to live next, and what is worthy in one’s Life.
And , lucky enough, everything is still put upside down, and downside up, it just has less drama than before…or the drama lasts less time…Approaching the fact that Infinity on this Earth is not an option, as one maybe thought earlier…
Blah, blah, blah… as I usually say “Very good!”…
So through this Miracle, and our Mama and Papa, we arrived here this time.
And through all kinds of other Miracles, Growth, Defeat, Victories, Nonsense, and Creations, here we are, celebrating, or not celebrating, another Birthday…
Our own Wheel of our own Life… Who are we, what have we become, what have we done?
The lucky ones get lots of good Wishes from many Dear ones, good Energy!
And for this, our Relation, and our Experiences so far, and here and now, we (I) are deeply Grateful, and Smile!
You honor me (and by our connection) yourself, You bless me and yourself…
I honor you (and by our connection) myself , I bless you and myself …
It is so easy to get distracted, it is so easy to get confused and lost, we all are aware of this.
In times like now, with sickness, crises, Human and Nature serious challenges, it is even easier.
We may fall, we may forget.
We may be distracted or fascinated by the power of Drama, abandon ourselves to that, or turn into selfpity, depression, apathy, anger, and selfdistruction, or grow in condamnation, ignore, or turn back and just polish our Ego, without Giving.
We may forget our part of Responsibility, and our Power. Or…We may forget to ask for a Hand, or for a Heart to listen to us, to Share…
Of course, we may “rest there” for a while, it is natural and human to follow the Waves, rise and fall, but…
Good news are that, whatever happens “out there”, or “in there”, does not need to damage us, it can help us grow.
Sensitivity and Sensibility are high, we are Vulnerable, and therefore Strong.
Our Light is still there, we belong to Life… We are Life!
We are precious, we can choose, and we can make it.
Let us listen to our Hearts, and be grateful for Life, however it expresses itself.
The ones who have the luxury of borrowing a piece of land on Earth know about planting, its Power, Importance, and Beauty. Maybe other ones do not have this luxury, and it is to them the Tree will talk.
The Tree, if planted well, will grow and grow, exactly like your Kid.
And it will change the surroundings, intake territory, and it will make Shadow and Light.
Maybe it will give Fruits, give Nourishment, take, and change that Earth.
And it will connect to other Trees, or fight them, and grow stronger.
Planting a Tree is a little like giving Birth, a “delicate matter”.
Like it was not enough with corona and its variants, a new virus, maybe even more dangerous, has been appearing, and keeps on popping up EVERYWHERE.
It is starting to do real ravage, even in our families, and between friends. IT IS CAUSING MISTRUST AND DIVISION!
What is going on?
Theories about what corona is, how it came into existence, and why, are many, and I actually cannot say that I know the truth about this, so far, there are DIFFERENT THEORIES AND OPINIONS.
Some say it is an instRument to produce suppression and fear, constructed artificially, in the fight between Dark and Light. Some say that vaccination is very bad, and us who have accepted, are somehow “impure and dangerous” now. And so on….I AM SURE YOU have heard about it …
WHETHER CORONA does or not exist, and its existence is made STRONGER BY OUR BELIEFS, People are dying. WE NEED TO BE RESPONSIBLE HERE, please!.
WE ARE IN THIS TOGETHER! Whatever the Truth may be, we are HERE TOGETHER!
What is a point if we START BEING ENEMIES ON AN OPINION? COME ON!
We have seen how things develop with different religions, it may end bad, and “MANY WAYS” have a reason to exist.
WE ARE DIFFERENT, WE BELIEVE DIFFERENT, WE EAT DIFFERENT, WE LIVE DIFFERENT, AND SO IT SHOULD BE, still, WE ARE BROTHERS AND SISTERS!
WE NEED TO KEEP STRAIGHT, STRONG, AND HELP EACH OTHER NOW EVEN MORE THAN BEFORE.
YOUR OPINION IS YOURS, AND MINE IS MINE, BUT WE SHALL BE ABLE TO COMMUNICATE WITH EACH OTHER IN PEACE!
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE!
WHAT CORONA IS OR IS NOT IS ONLY A PART OF OUR REALITY!
UNION IN DIFFERENCES IS WHAT MAKE US STRONG!
So let us discuss this, and maybe change, or maybe keep our different opinions, but LET US BE ABLE TO KEEP OUR HEARTS OPEN, OUR FAMILIES AND FRIENDS RUNNING, IN HARMONY, AND BE ABLE TO TALK AND DISCUSS ABOUT SOMETHING ELSE…CORONA IS NOT THE ONLY THEME WE HAVE! F…corona!
Thank you for reflecting on this, and wish us all the BEST!
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.
