Hero Flow

Nature ever flows, stands never still.  Motion or change is her mode of existence. The poetic eye sees in Man the Brother of the River and in Woman the Sister of the River. Their life is always transition.

Hard blockheads only drive nails all the time; forever . . . fixing.

Heroes do not fix, but rather they flow, bend forward and invent a resource for every moment.

Broken Lines

Most of us live a life that is not always made of straight lines taking us from one event to another – from point A to point B. Many of the lines of life are actually created by broken lines – the ones drawn by an unexpected turn, or maybe when we feel we have been on a long, continuous chaotic path. In truth, it wasn’t chaotic at all.

Natures Spiral.jpgWhen you step back to see where you’ve been, you will notice the intricate beautiful pattern and vivid colors of a life stitched together from what had felt like nothing more than mismatched scraps of events and broken lines. From afar, you will notice there was an intricate design all along, AND YOU WERE THE DESIGNER.

In life, broken, crooked, and straight lines will repeatedly and randomly occur. What is important is that those lines intersect with other lines. We always have companions along our journey, and whatever we create, we face together, because each of us is an intricate part of a design bigger than an individual whether the lines are straight or broken.

Land of the Unknown

There is a powerful tool called “questioning” in the land of opportunity, creativity and innovation.  Questioners learn to love that great unknown area of the mind because of all the open space.

human-1211468_1280Let’s cultivate ignorance (the great unknown) instead of fearing it. If we decide to do that, we will need a tool to help us dig, uncover, plant, tend, and grow right?  Well, it’s already in our back pocket – ever since childhood.

Our childish wonder with its endless questions.

Soul Garden

After a while, you learn the subtle differences between holding a hand and chaining a soul,

And you learn that love doesn’t mean leaning and infatuation is not real,

You begin to realize kisses aren’t contracts and presents aren’t promises,

With your head held high and eyes wide open, you accept defeats with graceful acceptance instead of anger,

And you learn only you can build the path of your life upon the truth of today because tomorrow’s ground is unknown,

And you may even learn sunshine can burn if you get too much,

So, my friend, plant the garden of your soul with flowers chosen only by you,

Learn from all events and know you are incredibly strong.

Nurture your soul-garden with self-love, practice kindness and always know you are one-of-a-kind, priceless and forever eternal.

Magical Fairydipity

Most of us have been taught “the unexpected must be expected” – more than likely at a very young age.  A particularly pleasant “lesson form” would be a fairy tale.  The word “serendipity” immediately came to mind and for a bit I was swept into the powerful magical impact fairy tales crammed full of amusing adventures seemingly have on each of us.   Fairy tales are definitely the imaginative playground of the mind – a form of entertainment that mirrors and teaches many life lessons.

53926978_sWord Origin and History for “Serendipity” (dictionary.com)

Year:  1754 (but rare before 20c.)

“Coined by Horace Walpole (1717-92) in letter to Horace Mann (dated Jan. 28); he said he formed it from the Persian fairy tale “The Three Princes of Serendip,” whose heroes “were always making discoveries, by accidents and sagacity, of things they were not in quest of.” The name is from Serendip, an old name for Ceylon(modern Sri Lanka), from Arabic Sarandib, from Sanskrit Simhaladvipa “Dwelling-Place-of-Lions Island.”

I propose that all humanity needs to get lost in fairy tales, fully engage in the serendipity, and earn advanced degrees in Fairydipity.

Just think, we’d look silly, sound silly, feel silly, and do amazing things way beyond the boundaries our “logical” mind would ever let us do. We would have fun. We would heal the soul a bit. We would create happy days, happy moments, happy relationships, happy connections.

You up for it? If you have children in your life, start reading fairy tales with them. Then start reading and creating fairy tales for yourself.  Let your imagination run wild. 

It will work. Thirty years ago, who would have imagined I could write this and have it whirl around the entire globe within seconds. Gotcha! There’s your proof  – magical thinking works.

Staring into Space

What do you see when you begin to stare at something and are unknowingly pulled into a realm full of thick stillness and mindlessness? Does it look back at you? Does it scare you?  Talk to you?  Heal you?

Maybe this happens as you stare into space, or casually glance at the face of a stranger, a loved one, a hated one, or even when you create an elaborate dream that you know may never come true.  What do you see?

girl-516341_1280Answer:  

You can see everything from that nowhere place.  All potentials and possibilities.

You see the Riddles of Life as they dance across your vision.

That’s my way of “looking” at life – I take delight in every glimpse, every sigh, every breath.  Maybe, just maybe, I’m really staring into the space of me.

Lost Understandings

There was a time when humanity recognized itself as being part of nature and nature being part of humanity. Back then, dreaming and waking were inseparable realities; the natural and the supernatural merged and blended. For example, some cultures used images of nature to express this natural transpersonal unity between nature and man through the use of petroglyphs. neanderthals-96507_1280Shamans, priests, chiefs, and priestesses were the keepers of the sacred knowledge of life and as such these individuals were tied to the rhythm and force of nature. They were capable of walking the threads that link the invisible and visible worlds in an effort to help people remember all that is on and within this earth is divine.

Fast forward to current time. It seems we have lost the understanding that all things are connected and each connection has great significance. Within the physics of life, we cannot separate the physical from the spiritual nor the visible from the invisible. When we begin to “remember”, through conscious natural healing and enlightenment how our spiritual self manifests within every nano-second of our daily life, we begin to realize the intricate paradox of how our “inner-world” gets so out of whack with the “outer-world”.  Maybe its a bit of an unanswerable question – should we heal the spirit first or the body?

Here’s my answer to this. Natural healing works to reconnect conscious human life with nature and spirit – the physical and the spiritual. You and I cannot be separated from the natural world therefore we each have a responsibility to know as much about the inside and outside environment about being us. We need to feel our insides and outsides. The more you learn about yourself, without judgement, the easier it will be to expand enough to experience all the joys and learnings you came into this life to experience.

That means, dear readers, we must gently heal both the spirit and the body at the same time.  Focusing heavily on only one aspect throws us both out of balance.

Everyone is your teacher as well as your student

That’s how children live life. They constantly exists in a natural state of learning and teaching that does not contain judgement or criticism of what they are experiencing.

That is the lost understanding

Do you want to experience life with a healthy sense of childish wonder?

Stop the judgement and criticism and truly accept and honor yourself and all others.  

Then you and this universe can heal.
