Have you ever noticed – The thing is …

peace_of_mind-wide

 

The thing is … Today – truth,  fact and social media hype seem to be closely related, meaning you’re not ever sure about what’s being said. And this holds true whether its on the news, or as I mentioned above in one of the social media platforms. Some things however, we just know.  We do!

and

The thing is … when it comes to love and peace on this beautiful planet of ours, the far majority of people want peace and love – A truth. They want to live a life of freedom and dignity. As I just said, simple truths. It is Power, Greed, Hatred, and Fear that essentially interferes with these goals.

Today a good day for love, global love.

With affection,

To Walk Among the Trees – Illumination!

Marvelous, beautiful trees!

I love nature with a passion. And I think trees are among the best things nature has to offer us. So to clear my mind, calm my insides and once again be in tune with the rhythm of life, (as it should be) I’ll walk among the trees.

The feeling is freeing, I don’t feel alone but a comfortable, solitary oneness that is acceptable when trees are keeping you company. You might say I’m a tree hugger because I do worry about how many trees are cut down in the name of “progress”. But first and foremost I’m a tree lover and the best way to appreciate trees is to get out there among them.

Go for a walk in the countryside, when you can. You’ll thank me for it, or if not me then the trees you’ll meet while there.

Have an excellent weekend my friends, and remember … take care of you!

Diversity – Thought for the day!

“The most dangerous phrase in our language is ‘We’ve always done it this way!’

I read this quote earlier today. It struck me as perhaps being at the root of much of the dissension currently happening in the USA and in various countries around our planet.

Definitely something to not only think about but also to act upon!

Have a great day,

Calling on Hope … or perhaps Hope calls on you!

Weariness can bring it’s own sort of distress.

when my heart gets weary

and I cannot seem to breath

my soul whispers hope

*

It’s inside your heart, you know. The determination and ability you need to carry on. In spite of fatigue, weariness and the feeling of being completely overwhelmed with life. Your life, in particular.

Look inward. It’s there. It’s been there in the past and it’ll be there again. Waiting to shore you up, strengthen your resolve and assist you with some common sense problem solving and solutions, so life doesn’t seem so out of control.

Good Luck, I know you can do this. After all it’s a good thing for you … to take care of you!

With affection,

Keeping Promises – Very Important!

But what about those little promises you made to you?

 

Boutanier

 

As the year draws to a close, it is often a time for reflection, thinking about what’s been accomplished … and what hasn’t. For many of us we’ve been busy on behalf of others; our family, our friends, our work, our community and so on.

What about the promises we made to ourselves? With the new year – 2015 just around the corner, perhaps you can rethink things. Set out with a positive attitude where you make a little more time for you and your personal goals.

And remember – it’s often true that when one takes time for his or herself, they become renewed with more positive energy to be shared in turn, with others.

A most wonderful and HAPPY NEW YEAR to all of you, my friends. Those I know and those I’ve yet to meet.

With much affection,

Penny

ONE

One is the “one” number in our counting system we use in a wide variety of creative and inventive styles when referring to ourselves or others in the “emotional sense” of things!

.

~

We refer to  “the one and only” or a “singular individual”, or “you are number one in my book” These meanings when personalized become ripe with potential raw emotions from our very inventive imaginations. 

And we view ourselves as singular. I am one person and you are one person. We tend to wrap our emotions around a theme of “oneness” in a very inward and selfish way too frequently. (we all do – without exception here.)

The word one, when it has to do with humanity is important. In my future world “one” will unify, encompassing everyone, no exclusions. Time will then be better spent on solving the problems of one people, one planet and so on.

One can also refer to an individual feeling alone. Apart from the rest – lonely. A very sad place to be. And yet each of us have occasions where we live in the land of the lonely. Hopefully for only a short duration. Life is rich with the potential for each ‘one’ person to love many others and more importantly, themselves.

Hard not to go to an emotional place with that song. In summation, numbers are a science to be utilized best by mathematicians, but mathematicians are people too, so I’m thinking emotions will always reign supreme in the whole scheme of things.

Make the number one, a wonderful one today – you and all those around you. Make one – count for something!

Imagine There’s No Meanness!

“A child learns through ‘experience with’ and ‘observations of’ the behavior of others.” ~ P

Imagine if being mean was inconceivable.

That no one anywhere on the planet understood the concept, much less had the desire to do anything mean.

Being nice isn’t really all that difficult. It takes far less time to be nice than it does to be mean and when people are nice to you, you want to spend more time around them.

So what does being mean “mean”? To me it’s when one perceives a hurt or cruelty from another. This sound ambiguous, because in a way it is. Many times we hurt others accidentally with poorly considered choices in what and how we say or do something. But if a true understanding of “no meanness” was there and one sensed a hurt, the other would be quick to apologize.

For the most part we have pretty good instincts, however, and know when someone else is being mean and cruel, with intent, through their words and actions.

When we’re mean all those other negative emotions can really take hold (hatred, cruelty, greed, avarice) when we’re nice to each other a different set of emotions rule (tenderness, caring, sharing and love)! The choice should be the one that has universal appeal ~ most certainly for the benefit of all mankind and life on this wonderful planet of ours. Let’s work on it, shall we?

Have a wonderful weekend, filled with love and caring.
