ACCEPT LIFE FULLY
PUT YOUR WHOLE HEART INTO IT
MAKE PEACE WITH IT ALL
On the water’s beauty
frolicking in the waves
jumping over imaginary hoops made of crystal
dear mammals of peace, love, and harmony
an escort to the joyful side of life
a symbol of protection
through my resurrection
a life examined
I dig deep to my inner strength
and I bow in Grace
for the surprise visit
and the message that ALL
is exactly as it should be.
Hi friends! I drew this Zentangle”esque” picture to commemorate a super special day I had this summer. My dear sister was in town we had not seen each other in a year. We went to the boardwalk for a stroll and when we were done we sat on a bench and looked out to the ocean.
I grew up going to this beach and spent many a summer day looking out on this sea. I had NEVER seen a dolphin here before. On this special day, a day that was filled with much love and laughter (and let me tell you when the two of us start laughing you can hear us for miles!!) we saw a pod of dolphins frolicking in the sun…and we knew we were blessed!
I dedicate this post to my sister! I love you so much and I thank you for being the beautiful person you are…God made us sisters and I am so grateful we are FRIENDS!! ❤ ❤
I decided to include another photo of the drawing. I almost think I liked it better at this stage. As in life, I sometimes go overboard 😉 I’m happy I took photos at various stages because I was able to capture it before my pens went to town.
Also just a little aside, this is my 300th post here on my blog! I know it is not a lot compared to some, but I am amazed I have posted 300 times. The reason it is easy, and something I love, is because of you guys! Thank you for enriching my life…BLESSITUDE ❤ ❤
I was asked if this was a seminal moment. Asked if I was truly over it, once and for all. And I felt a tug at my heart. Am I really ready to be done with the hurt? Is my constant companion, my partner in pain, the legacy that I have built over all these years REALLY ready to be buried…?
For what will I be without this pain?
What would my life look like?
What would it feel like?
Has it become a security blanket, an excuse for not facing reality? For running in the lane of all that HAPPENS to me versus all that I have created? All that I have allowed to be?
There is a feeling of nakedness…of standing in the middle with nothing to hide behind…
Is my pain my cloak that has provided me a safe, albeit painful existence in this journey of a thousand miles?
What if I am truly able to bury the pain of feeling excluded in the family I was born into? What if I realize that I was born into that family to learn the lesson that there is no such thing as exclusion. It is made up by me and my mind. The pain I have created is what causes the distance and every step I take back keeps the pain further ensconced in my mind, in my heart, in my cells memory.
Am I truly done? Can I have a sweet burial of this illusion, of this pain? Can I see that standing naked in the middle, with no false protection not only allows the illusion of pain to melt and drip to puddles on the ground, but opens my heart, opens my soul to the wondrous beauty of the love from creation?
The light enters my heart and it expands out until my naked soul is exposed and my being is caressed by the most authentic love. A love so brilliant it heals all the wounds and it leaves a beautiful energy behind and changes the cells perception of pain into love.
Yes, dear Hariod, I AM!
In the realm of my existence
I am peaceful in my being
Washed in love that shines out of my soul
I live from my heart
And I listen to the voice of creation
that consumes my being
I honor that which gives me…me
which makes me a small part
of the whole of being in the universe
Today I honor that
which comes forth from Spirit
the collective voice of all
who have gone before…
all who are present…
and the future of the all in creation
Filled with gratitude for being
I open my soul
and I marvel

“Love in Ten Sentences”
In ‘love’s‘ tender moment
my soul vibrated ‘love‘
‘love‘ for all people
‘love‘ for all things
‘love‘ so deeply ingrained
‘love‘ so all encompassing
‘love‘ that radiates out
I know this ‘love‘
I need this ‘love‘
I AM this ‘love‘!
As forgiveness allows love to return to my awareness, I will see a world of peace, safety and joy. ~ A Course in Miracles
And my nominees for the challenge are:
Should you decide to take on the challenge…have fun!! If not…no worries 🙂 Have an awesome Wednesday full of love….Blessitude!
I’m not sure I have ever
heard that kind of silence before
I stood and I looked over
And I felt love
the purest kind of love
And the sounds
entered my ears
And it reached into my soul
And it pulled on strings
that were attached to my heart
And I knew
I felt creation move in my soul
And I knew
we all come from one
And I felt connected
at the base of my very being
And I felt
Sometimes, we don’t know what we are missing until we don’t hear it! I am beginning to understand the importance of silence in my life right now. A deafening silence spoke to my heart on a recent trip to Arizona. It seemed so loud…if that is possible. I am exploring with this silence. It seems when I turn down the noise from the outside world, my insides…my heart…my soul…are easier to hear.
I wish you all much love and many blessings on this beautiful Sunday morning. ~Blessitude
