Wisdom I’ve gained this day:
Your first responsibility is to try and be open and vulnerable to yourself. Admit any aspects of shame, fear, anger/anguish, etc. you are carrying around. Explore ‘weaknesses’, don’t hide from them. Connect to everything about your self.
That’s when true, integrated strength, a sense of purpose and connectedness begin to emerge. You begin to ‘flow’ in the world again.
Start exploring the interior landscape. The rewards are myriad!
There is an edge to hope,
That even when it floats away,
Clings as a shadow of wonder,
To the corners of the spirit.
Let it flower within you today,
Let it rise.
Smile at hope,
And hope will smile upon you…
Who knows what the two of you can do?
From afar I watch a mansion crumble,
I watch the inconceivable take shape,
And somehow, I am strengthened in my self.
Somehow, I feel the essential taut granite in me,
The one that holds up the truth.
Today I know that if there is to be any hope,
We each have to ascend.
Find our power, flex it,
And go heal this earth of ours.
Late afternoon golden winter sun,
The first tomato seedling peeking out,
And a heart full of Hope!
Happy New Year!! 🙂 🙂 🙂
Happy New Year my dear, dear, friends! 🙂
Let’s make 2016 a most magical entity! Let us take the hopes and dreams of 2015 and turn it into a conflagration of raw awesomeness!
Suppose, we begin by taking a perfectly respectable spark like this:
And we turn it into:
That would be fun, wouldn’t it?
But we wouldn’t be satisfied with just that much brightness, would we?
We’d turn it up:
Now we’re talking!
But why stop there?
It’s sheer awesome we’re aiming at, right?
Just a celebration of all things radiant!
And then for the pièce de résistance, a conflagration of proud bright!
That’s just happy-making., isn’t it?
Be happy in 2016, be absolutely radiant! 🙂
