Haiku ~ & “Merry Christmas”

In life and in death

You can not deny the truth

Spirit moves your Soul!

 

On this Sunday, one week before we celebrate the birthday of Christ, I am solemn…

This week I learned of a birth, and a death, in a matter of hours.  One tiny little human embarking on the most miraculous journey, and one who didn’t appear finished with his, left abruptly.

I contemplate this process and the one thing I come up with is that Spirit moves our Soul and we can be a willing participant, or we can let the struggles of life drown out what we hear.  We can let fear pervade our being and go searching for comfort in every place It can never be found, or we can move to the tune of our hearts, orchestrated by the power of the Divine!

This week before Christmas, I offer these words as a gift, a reminder…

Listen to your Soul

It will never steer you wrong

Blessed love inside

Blessitude!

ALMOST PARADISE ~ Multiple Haiku

ALMOST PARADISE

PicsArt_07-15-07.00.27

 

When your dream depends

On someone else to come true

There is always risk

*

What someone else sees

Is more likely THEIR vision

What is best for them

*

Not meant to deceive

They don’t even think about

How it could hurt you

*

It’s better for you

To do the hard work yourself

And to turn inward

*

You then are the one

Who designs your own blueprint

To make things work out

*

No interference

Exactly what you vision

Your dream is fulfilled

*

No regrets at all

For the time spent together

Wish them well…move on

 

Blessitude!

AND THEN LOVE ENTERED! Haiku ~ 1/6/16

Stuck in my own mind

Everything came to a halt

And then love entered!

Nothing happens until something moves. ~ Albert Einstein

I have been involved in a struggle for the last two months.  I felt like things were happening “to” me and I have been paralyzed, unable to make a decision as to how I will handle this situation.

I have not experienced this many times in life.  I usually have strong opinions and a douse of intuition, the perfect recipe to make a decision and stick with it.

I have analyzed EVERYTHING from all directions.  I have said, “what if” and “I don’t know” more times than I can count (or care to remember.)

I would make a decision and then something inside would rumble, like aftershocks from an earthquake, and it didn’t feel right!  So I would not follow through and work hard to come up with a new solution.

I’ve been so confused…I didn’t know if my reticence was based in fear, or if my intuition was speaking so loud that it would be impossible for me to ignore it.

And I judged myself for being wishy washy….ewwww!

Dangerously close to a decision that could not be changed, I put the brakes on one more time yesterday.  I breathed a sigh of relief and I felt so much lighter.

And then love entered.  I felt the embrace of Angels and I knew that the chaos I felt inside was my beautiful self trying to stand up and be heard!  She was trying to prevent the old “self-abusive me” from making a decision that would ultimately hurt me in real and lasting ways.

Now I don’t know if that part of me will ever truly be gone, but I believe that the loving, kind, compassionate part of me is gaining the upper hand, for I would not have heard her in the past.  The struggle I have felt internally over the past two months has been so uncomfortable and it is not something that I wish to repeat…EVER!

So I pray to keep LOVE as the focal point, and I pray that I will know the difference between LOVE and FEAR if ever I feel this again. 

And I pray that the new solution to my problem will be THE CORRECT ONE!

I think the most important thing is to TRUST this new me because I know it is powered by Divine Love!!

Spirit Paints Rainbows ~ Haiku 11/23/15

20151022_160750

 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!

Blessitude
