Riding the wave of life

 

Riding the wave of life

Be still and flow with the wave’s motion.

Life is ephemeral as the universe flow.

It rises and falls, as life’s high and low points.

Be attentive

Be centered

Be awake

Stay calm and relaxed.

Riding the wave will always

take you where you need to go.

Seasons are different

Autumn colors

Winter is like a blanket,

white cover on the ground.

Spring is like a flower,

sweet blooms of pink … yellow .

Summer is like grass,

shifting in the wind.

Fall is like a yellow leaf,

softly dancing in the air.

Seasons are different no matter how hushed,

immutable as it gradually pass away.

The fire that goes down at sunset

Sunset

The fire that goes down at sunset

takes a part of your life.

Everything that you have in this moment

is just enough.

When thoughts veer toward colorless darkness

Know in your heart

Soft orange,

Bluish red skies

Pink clouds …

Say

“I have everything I need at this moment …

My world is full of abundance.”

The Sun Life’s Nourishment

The Sun

Life’s Nourishment

Learn from our sun

It is light.

Look at the beauty in the world.

It is a creative force of great strength,

courage and hope.

At the start of day,

Close your eyes,

Bask in its light,

Imagine your soul ascending alongside it.

Without the sun’s golden light,

the spirit suffers.

When we take time to bask in the sun our spirit soars.

radiant in its Blessings.

Inside Princess mind

Inside Princess mind

This is Princess

One late afternoon, she stood silent on the hard hot pavement.

tired … lost and uncertain where her next step will be.

A tag on her neck showed how far she was from home.

Was that a tear on her eyes ?

No soft whimper or growl escaped her dry mouth.

Only the palpable fear of unknown on her quivering flesh.

I took her home and

wondered what was Inside Princess mind as she looked outside.

Late at night, she was picked up by the local county animal care.

A week later, Princess reunited with her owner.

Today . . . this image of Princess bring back memories … and

I often wonder what was inside Princess mind then.

Totoro in Daisyland

In  a field of daisies I took a photo and Totoro popped … 😛

Totoro “a giant furry thing” to “a rabbit-like spirit”. Basically, he is a spirit of the forest. He is obviously a mixture of several animals: tanukis (the Japanese version of raccoons), cats (the pointed ears and the facial expressions), and owls (the chevron markings on their chests and the “ooo”-ing sound they make with their ocarinas at night).

There is Only Now

There is Only Now

There is Only Now

Be present … Now

Experience each life moment,

not through memory or fantasy.

Stay aware, open, and receptive.

Each present moment is completely new.

As you move through your day,

Remember to stay present in each second.

In doing so, you will live your life,

without having to wait for the future,

or yearn for the past.

Life happens to us

When we happen to life in the Now.

The distant past

The distant past

The distant past

Turn toward the sun to celebrate what

seems more than a piece of a distant past.

Honor the joys of summertime

And immerse in its pleasures.

Wake up with the sunrise,

take a day trip to the beach,

indulge in an ice cream cone,

and quietly embrace nature’s tenderness.

The season will pass quickly,

but while it remains,

revel in the richness of life

dance in the season of light.

Every day I hear the birds chirping

Every day I hear the birds chirping

Every day I hear the birds chirping

Like small blue bits in dreams

But what is it I’m hearing?

Wonderingly, I placed my nose

through the glass window

and I see joy today.

The light guide is true.

Summery shadow lives,

The landscapes frolic.

Find me a song with poppies in it

Find me a song with poppies in it

Find me a song with poppies in it,

floating gracefully

on the nether side of the sun.

Stunning petals fade into shadows

a reminder that rest will come soon

on a serene dayspring.

The mocking tune of

the breeze will go on ‘til life is done.

For now find me a song with poppies in it.
