Dance Into Eternity

2014-08-24 15.15.43

Life.

Death.

A thin line.

I’ve walked for years,

Straddling,

One leg firmly planted on the side of life.

The other in the air,

crossing the center,

balanced like a gymnast on the beam.

Life.

Death.

One is here,

where my foot is planted firmly,

and there are times that it feels darker,

than being closed in a casket lowered,

six feet under.

My ballerina toe gets closer

and almost touches that side,

and in one moment I have a thought

that there might be some life in there,

there might just be a rainbow.

But then I lean on my left leg.

The one that is sturdy and holds me up straight.

And I remember that there is a whole lot

more life left to be lived on this side.

So I walk on the wire,

one foot in front of the other,

and I make a promise

to continue to explore this side of the line

with as much gusto as I can.

My right leg obeys,

and my soul decides to continue its work,

and my mind is free,

because I know that death is not something to fear.

When the time is right,

I will lace up both ballerina shoes

and

Dance Into Eternity!

Sorry for the morose feeling behind this post.  I had written it a while ago and did not post it when it was raw.  But I just found out that a couple I know were found dead in their condo, a suspected murder/suicide.

I am in shock!

I saw them just a few weeks ago.  They were the kind of people you just knew were meant to be together…soul mates.  I can’t begin to guess what enticed them to cross over that line, but I suppose I am not surprised that, as they were in life, they decided to be in death…together.

I will miss them.

Spirit Paints Rainbows ~ Haiku 11/23/15

 Spirit paints rainbows

Missed by those who would not see

With eyes of their heart

 

I would have missed it had I not looked around and taken the whole of the experience in with all of my senses.  To the south the sky was crystal blue and the sun shone brightly.  But over my shoulder, I felt the faintest drop of rain.  I turned to the east and large puffy clouds were gathering – a convention in the sky.  My eyes wandered north and I could see more rain, and then I caught a glimpse of color.

I was not sure I had seen anything, so I studied the canvas in the sky and to my delight Spirit painted perfection before my very eyes.  In all her glory my surprise rainbow appeared and the depth of her beauty radiated out to those who would see her.  It was almost as if she was painted just for me, as no one else seemed to notice her. 

I wanted to share this beauty so I told the 30 or so people who were all facing south, “Look!  There’s a rainbow!”  They started to turn as I got my camera ready and took aim.  I watched her disintegrate into the ether of the sky.  I pressed the button on my camera as the crowd moaned and groaned, somewhat annoyed I had disturbed them.

I couldn’t tell what my photo looked like in the outdoor sun and had completely forgotten about it until today.  I opened my photo gallery and there she was!  Just before she exited the canvas in the sky, she let me capture a portion of her beauty.

It made me think about how excited I get when I am touched by Spirit and I learn a lesson based in the love of Creation.  I run around and jump for joy and try to get everyone to “see” it.  But many times I am met with the same blank stares as when my surprise rainbow appeared to shine only for me.

I am reminded that I don’t need confirmation of the way my soul is touched, and that I can’t force another soul to feel, or think, or see what I do.  While we are all on this journey, and we are all connected, we all walk at our own pace and this is not a race!

I can’t walk the walk for another, this walk is mine.  And while I am thrilled to come upon another soul who is walking the same pace, I can’t force anyone to walk at mine.

But, knowing myself as I do, I’ve a feeling that I will always get excited when Spirit paints rainbows, and I will always jump for joy and try to get others to look!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING, FRIENDS!!

Be Not the Darkness

20150721_183519

Lonely Souls

I sit not in judgment

of the wounded heart that bled its pain

in the destruction of others

for many times

this is how humans behave

*

But there is another way

a way that serves humanity

in the light of which we were created

in the light of all true meaning

and that light is

LOVE ❤

*

Nothing is gained

when we retaliate

with our own pain and destruction

delivered by fear that we too,

are capable of such atrocities

All that is gained

is more of the same energy

and it proves that we are indeed capable

*

But we are capable of many things

and I beg you to replace your fear

before it is too late!

*

Be Not the Darkness

of the Wounded Soul

rather

Rise up to the

Brilliant Light that

Created Us All

The Brilliant Light

that Shines a Path

Rise Up

to

LOVE!

I feel such sadness in my soul in light of the recent terror attacks in Paris.  It doesn’t make sense to me that people think these kinds of acts are holy.  But I will try not to judge their pain and add more negativity to the world.

Instead, I will think more clearly the next time I have a perceived hurt by someone.  I will try to work it out WITH them, and if that is not possible, then I will just send them love.  Nothing is gained when we add negativity…EVERYTHING IS GAINED WHEN WE ADD LOVE!  ❤

A Bag of Bones

20151113_074114

Her pain is so raw as she tries to hold on to the life she controlled with such precision.

For what is left when there is nothing left that she feels can be manipulated?

She lashes out and makes rude comments.

She tries to push me away as she wishes to show me the pain that is coursing through her veins.

She finds the one thing she controls, the one thing left in her existence that is under her rule, and she goes to town.

She is so proud.

Her plans are working just as she perceived them to and nobody has anything to do with it.

Ha Ha!  I’ll show them, she thinks in the mind that feels so all alone.

One by one they drop…

The pain is assuaged each time the number is read.

And she feels a brief moment of success, something she hasn’t felt for a long time.

One by one becomes a loss of about three pounds per week, and she smiles.

She feels so good about herself it is hard to take it away from her!

She brings it up willingly at every visit…because she is so proud.

And I am brought back to a time when I was proud.

When a glance in the mirror didn’t show the reflection of what I felt.

When my life was so out of my control that I, too, controlled the one thing that was left, and it scares me!

She won’t listen to reason.

I ask her, “What number do you have in mind?  What number will make you happy?”

With zero hesitation she blurts, “107!”

So my mind does the mental math and I think by Christmas she will be a bag of bones…

Blessitude!

The Magnificence of Creation

20151009_082200

My pity party is over

And I am washed in the love of

The Magnificence of Creation

This, my new word for God

Feels right to my soul

And I honor the love

That is felt here

I believe no matter how bad times may feel,

There is a set amount of time that you can sit down

And feel sorry for yourself

But then you need to pick yourself up

And take the first step

In a forward direction

You have to believe with all your heart

That your struggle is there

For you to learn something

And then you have to believe

In Divine Timing

That what is on its way

Is so much better than

What you had planned

The Magnificence of Creation

Is all-knowing

And it works for you

And through you

Rise up

To your own Magnificence

And believe that the things you desire

Are on the way

Don’t hold tight to the belief

That they must appear exactly as you envisioned

Because you will be disappointed

And that will change your energy

No!

Be willing to release your expectations

But keep your belief

That the right people, things, and ideas

Will manifest in exactly

The perfect timing

Divine Timing!

So get busy looking for them!

I know they are there ❤
