Decisions

My son commented that his adult children do not always make good decisions. My response was that my children do not always make good decisions. At age seventy-two, I have had a lot of practice making decisions and I still make bad ones, by my criteria. Life offers multiple paths. Whichever ones we choose, we will always wonder where the others would have led.

Society, culture, geographic location, religion, spirituality, parental expectations, media and education shape our opinions. Innocent at birth, we are taught prejudice. As adults, we judge others, who are not our carbon copies. If our children choose different lifestyles, we blame ourselves for failing at their indoctrination. Each of us is on a personal journey to advance our souls. God gave us free will to learn and grow.

Decisions are not good or bad. They open doors to new experiences. Some of them may teach us never to make that choice again, but others may open our eyes to new possibilities. It takes courage to be a maverick. This world would never have advanced without those who questioned the status quo and thought outside the box.

Be bold. If you make a mistake, by your standards, dust yourself off and try again. Life is a wild ride for those willing to buy a ticket.

Ditch the Baggage

Ditch the baggage. It’s too heavy to carry. Life’s journey accumulates injuries that appear to heal, but beneath the scar, mental anguish continues to fester. Many years pass, but the hurt is as fresh as the day it was inflicted.

History is not part of today and tomorrow. Obstacles are challenging without yesterday’s weight. Kick it to the curb. Whatever happened is not relevant today. Take out the whiteboard and lots of markers to create a new day.

The pain of the past cannot be deleted. Open to feeling everything, good and bad. Let it flow like a wave. Do not cling to and regurgitate the trauma.

Feel the breeze on your cheeks. Hear the birds’ morning songs. Breathe fresh air into your lungs. See the wonders of nature. Live, Love, Laugh and be Happy. Today is a new day.

If not now, WHEN?

Are you stuck in a life that is not yours? Do you feel like an observer, instead of a participant? Is your soul screaming because you are not in alignment? If you answered “yes” these questions, it is time to make some changes, albeit small to start.

I immersed myself into my parents’, husband’s and son’s needs, while suppressing my spirit’s cries for help. Financial pressures in the 3D world demand that we work to survive. Our status expectations and chosen lifestyles apply additional stress.

With financial and family obligations, pursuing your heart’s desire is a challenge, but it can be managed. When our children were in elementary school and we were running a business, my husband and I obtained college degrees.

Realizing your dreams involves planning, prioritizing, persistence and patience. Playing the victim and crying in your beer will not get you there. Stop making excuses. Take charge. Manifest your own destiny. Soar! If not now, WHEN?

Shut Off the Media

Look at us, floating in space, no strings attached.

What keeps us from falling into the abyss?

The mystical power of what we cannot see and do not understand.

Shut down the media and go within!

Think for yourself.

We are all equipped with a soul to guide us.

Shut off the noise from those who want to influence and control you.

Each of us has a guidance system for truth and love.

Use it!

The animal and plant kingdoms know what to do.

Humans flounder!

Kick greed to the curb. There is abundance for all.

No one is above another.

Show compassion for fellow man, animals and the environment.

Planet resources are for all.

We are one!

We are all one

Begotten of the source

Equal are we,

God given perfection

 

Get real, people!

Money, status, job, things

Nothing matters

Illness, death level field

 

Time to treat all

With respect, dignity

For I am you

And you are the next guy

 

Connected souls

For eternity bound

I reflect you

You, my mirror image

 

All shapes, colors,

Sizes of perfection

God’s creations

Sent to spread love and learn

 

Ditch the ego’s fear

Reach for diversity

Angels’ colors

Crayons of the universe

 

Molten Earth spins

No strings, no guides to hold

Orb from plunging

Into vast nothingness

 

Creation rules

Love guides the universe

Be encompassed

Compassion, harmony

PEACE

Snug Harbor

harbor mackinac island

Captain sets the anchor firm

In safe, calm anchorage

Two A.M. in howling winds

The anchor frees its hold

 

Set adrift with no control

The vessel doomed to crash

Waves are whipped to beer-like froth

React or blow away

 

Harbor snug was perfect choice

Or so the captain thought

Storms disrupt the best laid plans

To teach, so we may learn

 

Lives on Earth are fleeting times

For soul progression growth

Thrust outside the comfort zone

Be lost or reach for home

 

Guidance there, for us to ask

Free will, but help nearby

Practice stillness listening

The angels wait to aid

 

Life is full of miracles

Go forth, fear not, be brave

God’s got this, the plan is set

Believe! Feel Joy! Rejoice!
