The Tomorrow of Our Days

Our dreams do no exist in the tomorrow of our days.~Ani Po

We could look to the tomorrows of our days, in hopes that our dreams will come to fruition or we could align ourselves today with a knowing that our dreams will come true. Without action of today the dreams of tomorrow may never happen.

Through careful contemplation we can solve any dilemma of our days. Simply looking at it with hopes of tomorrow being a better day…it may never happen or become a faded memory.

Keep the dream alive, make arrangements today…clearing pathways for our dreams to manifest. Contemplate today not for what might be, but how it will be so.

Stepping into the Canvas with deeper contemplation of our day. In our steps of the day we are aligning with our truest self of tomorrow. Keep stepping, keep seeking and it will be found.

Things Are Not What they Seem

All that is gold does not glitter; not all those who wander are lost; the old that is strong does not wither; deep roots are not reached by the frost.~J.R.Tolkien

Too often we judge a book by its cover, failing to read the contents. Lazily looking out into the world, forgetting there is still much more to learn. Too busy or conditioned response? It is not too late to see anew.

Stepping into the Canvas with deeper perspective for things are not what they seem. Just for today I will look deeper within the beauty of they day, allowing deeper mysteries to surface. That which was unseen shall be made seen.

Joy in my Heart

What for this happiness,

For Joy not present.

Day to day,

Forgotten truth.

Crashing all around,

Sinners and suffering.

Choosing to listen,

Or choosing to focus yet again.

Laser sighted,

Target in view.

Stay present in joy,

Happiness will follow.

No matter crashings of the day,

We still have Joy in our Heart.

Spaces in your Togetherness

 “Let there be spaces in your togetherness, And let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love: Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls. Fill each other’s cup but drink not from one cup. Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf. Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone, Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music. Give your hearts, but not into each other’s keeping. For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts. And stand together, yet not too near together: For the pillars of the temple stand apart, And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other’s shadow.”
―The Prophet

Open my Heart

Today I open my heart,

For all to share.

Vulnerable,

Yet irremovable.

Shadows tainting days of old,

Shining forth watching it wither.

Today I open my heart,

For all to share.

Standing on grounds of peace and love,

Allowing mirrors to outwardly reflect.

That which is without no longer ruling,

Within…written upon footsteps kissing earth.

Today I open my heart,

For all to share.

Life is Too Short

Life is too short to worry what the neighbors are doing. I still do not understand why some people worry about the weather, worry about what is happening overseas, or what the neighbors are up to. Especially when there own house is in disarray.

Too much time worrying about everything else only keeps us from getting our own stuff in order. Am I in order? There are those who ask this everyday and strive to better themselves from previous days, while others are still stuck on something that is out of their own control. Shaking my head here.

I often ask “So what are going to do about it?” They reply “Nothing, it is out of my control.” Exactly! So why worry?! Instead…why not just send love to this area of concern and move on?! I know my house is always due for a sprucing up…so I return back to my own house and tidy it up.

Stepping into the Canvas letting go that which is out of my control. Worrying less, focusing more on my own house…making sure it is in order. As for today, I will send love to those who need it and stick to the grass-roots of my own homestead…with hopes that it catches on elsewhere…
