My home is all glittery and aglow...the multitude of festive lights create a dramatic setting against the increased dark outside, and although we don't have snow this Christmas my windows are decorated with snow and snowflakes; add a little glitter and it is a wondrous reminder of that snowy feeling. My tree is a live potted tree that I have brought indoors and decorated with mini lights and décor. My theme this year is blue and silver, complete with icicles, glittered stars and mirrored balls. Alas I will not see my grandkids this year, but they are in my heart everyday...my gifts are all ready to be shipped off today and then I can just sit back and enjoy. I love the twilight period best when all the lights hold dominance against the dark...oh and of course there is eggnog, a bit o rum, a Black Russian cocktail in memory of my father long passed on. My musical favorites: Sleigh Ride, This must be Christmas, Halleluia, and the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. It seems that my pet bunny rabbit enjoys all the new lights as well, since she sometimes sits alone in the den just staring contently for periods of time.
And so this is Christmas; let's hope it's a good one, without any tears...
I have a poem that I have written to share:
if you could but see; If you could but hear;
if you would awaken from the dream;
if you could have faith and trust,
doors would be opened to you...
the Unimaginable; the Impossible;
if you could remember the wonder and enchantment the heavens would be open to your pleas;
the universe would respond;
the light would come down to guide you
and you would know the truth.
Found on Crystalinks “Occupy Wall Street is not just a demonstration wherein everybody goes home at the end of the day and the rich people and powerful rule as they did in the past. It's all changing from the way the news is broadcast since trust and confidence in Mass Media has declined - to the way hard working people live their lives. This is not a chapter .. this is total global change ... and everyone is paying attention. “
Martin Luther King, Jr
"Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase.
Freedom is worth fighting for. Just ask Braveheart.
“freedom is just another word for nothing left to lose.” in the words of Janis Joplin.
The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do
as Mother Theresa said:
"Do not wait for leaders. Do it alone, person to person." -
Thanks to Dandelion for this:Apathy will only keep us enslaved and at some point with all they are doing we may have no minds to unchain ourselves. Chemtrails, GMO's, Big Pharma, the Silent Sound project. These are all well documented things, not fairy tales, I've been sticking my neck out, doing what I can, everyone needs to get on board, those who know must educate those who do not, then be active behind the scenes when they are not educating.
"The Buddha teaches this triple truth to all: A generous heart, kind speech, and a life of service and compassion are the things which renew humanity.
Happy NewYears All
May you all find peace and sanctuary this year. Great Spirit Prayer [modified version]
Oh Great Spirit, creator of all there is
Be with me in my efforts to grow, to learn, to express
Bless my voice in the words that it berths that they may cheer my fellow man
Bless my hands that they may always comfort and soothe those in need
Bless my mind that it may be open and receptive to the flow of your great wisdom and insight
Bless my heart that it be full of the same enduring love you have for me
Bless my ears that they may hear your wisdom as you whisper in the secret chambers of my soul.
Bless my eyes that they may see clearly your beauty in all things.
Bless my feet that they may be swift to carry me wherever I need to go; Oh Great Spirit, thank you!
Resolutions you say?
Alanis Morrisette offers this:
how bout getting off these antibiotics
How bout stopping eating when I'm full up
how bout them transparent dangling carrots
how bout that ever elusive kudo
how bout me not blaming you for everything
how bout me enjoying the moment for once
how bout how good it feels to finally forgive you
how bout no longer being masochistic
how bout remembering your divinity
how bout unabashedly bawling your eyes out
how bout not equating death with stopping
thank you india
thank you providence
thank you disillusionment
thank you nothingness
thank you clarity
thank you thank you silence.
My Top priorities for the New Year:
I will do a clean sweep to rid myself of the clutter I have accumulated.
I will eat healthier and consume less.
I will recycle more and waste less
Iwill continue to learn so that my knowledge may be turned into wisdom.
I will listen more and talk less
I will strive to leave a much smaller global footprint
I will spend more time being mindful of my divinity
I will continue to promote an Attitude of Gratitude
I will continue to be generous and charitable
I will cherish the smallest moments of bliss rather than always projecting into the future.
I will continue with my personal healing methods to offset my physical ailments rather than being consumed by them.
My religion is simple…my religion is compassion. My Spirit is about honor,trust, loyalty,sincerity, humility,
truth, love, devotion, emotion,strength & wisdom
Spirit is frozen in the subconscious and must be awakened by the warmth of the heart
In the teachings of the Dali Lama compassion is described as a willingness to disregards one's own self-interest in order to take on the suffering of another.
My totem is the bear.
THE SPIRIT OF THE BEAR IS:Balance and Harmony; Healing; Patience; Strength and Stamina;Wisdom.
By accepting the paradox of spirit, we open ourselves to the fullness of our own being.
"If facts are the seeds that later produce knowledge and wisdom, then the emotions and the impressions of the senses are the fertile soil in which the seeds must grow."- Rachel Carson, environmentalist
