Emergence/Change … I come for you!

Emergence/Change

 If you believe tomorrow comes

Then, this be a perfect time,

For me to open up your heart

And claim what must be mine.

*

But I fear I’m now not certain

I don’t know where to be,

There is too much, there is so much

And there is only me.

*

You are but one of many

Still l know just what to do,

My certainty it overflows

For every one of you.

*

If one believes in miracles

I can perform my deed,

Spread out my will and enter in

You’ll listen – you will heed.

*

If only you were wiser

I could do what I must dare,

The way would go more swiftly

And I would take you there.

*

If all the If’s were certainties

And all your dreams came true,

The rest would come so easily

To bring this time to you.

*

It’s you who I must care for

You and only you,

Open your mind and let me in

It’s time – I come for you!

My name is Change

Please let me in!

Hello November – Let’s make it a good one!

For parts of the planet the weather is definitely getting colder. For other parts it is balmy and lovely! (I must admit to being a little bit envious for the warmth in those areas.)

It is Monday for most of us, Tuesday for some and a new week and month has begun.

What can we do to improve our day and those days ahead?

Well it isn’t going to be easy, is it? I mean, how can you determine the truth of what’s going on in the world around you sorting through the “heaps and heaps” of untruths, half-truths and play ol’ runaway insanity we are inundated with each day.

Common Sense

So here’s a thought. How about for starters, we use our common sense! For example “all commercials and advertisements” you are viewing online (regardless of what type of mechanical device you are using) – are there for the sole purpose of enticing you to buy something! (Always – No Exceptions, here!) So keep this in mind. Not just as a consumer but as an individual concerned for you and your family’s well-being.

Don’t buy into a “story” no matter how compelling because it’s “trending”. Use common sense. If you’re in a state (USA) where you’ll be voting the same logic should apply. Don’t “vote” just to vote. If you don’t understand the issue (you should) take the time to learn about it. Ditto with those who are running for a public office. Common Sense is an amazing tool when we take the time to use it.

Yes, ‘Common Sense’ is absolutely better then ‘Omnipotent Hindsight’ which is how most opinions (we read about) are formed today – after the fact (spreading like wildfire) rather than securing needed information first – when the ‘actually facts’ can be of much needed value!

What is your ‘common sense’ quotient? Give it a try, you may be pleasantly surprised yourself, with how effective this tool can be for you!

Have a good November, make ‘common sense’ your new “norm”. And who knows? It might actually trend its way into some of the areas where common sense is sorely needed (because it’s obviously missing completely in those places).

Happy week to all, Stay balanced (with lots of love thrown in)! And never, never forget –

All that I Am!

An expression in poetry regarding the Human Spirit in ALL of us!

The human spirit

All that I Am

I am as constant as clouds floating high overhead.

My concerns as deep as the oceans that ebb and flow upon our shores.

I am strong and durable, as constant as mother Earth whom I dwell upon … drawing strength from her very being which is a part of me.

I will not fail you,

But I will make mistakes,

… go a wrong direction

… go too many directions

… Be inappropriate in my actions.

And for all these I promise to rectify the wrong when possible, face my mistakes and learn so perhaps in the future these mistakes won’t reoccur.

So I ask for your understanding for all that I am not. And I ask for your blessings for all that I am – both the good and the bad.

… for I am as constant as the clouds floating high overhead. As strong and durable, constant and caring as the Mother Earth I dwell upon,

And my love for you is encompassed within

… All that I am!

human spirit II

Going for it!

Live Wide, my friends … Live Wide!

The thought crossed my mind today that if we enjoyed what was right in front of us, in the moment, each day, we would probably be much happier instead of constantly searching for and coveting the next newer, better, bigger, greater thing. Only to remember to enjoy each of these moments with great gusto!

The actual quote “Live is short live wide” is by one of my favorite science fiction authors, Robert Heinlein.  I have always thought it an excellent quote for how we embrace each day with our thinking and actions. Hope yours is filled with such happy thoughts and that your weekend is a special one. Thank you for visiting me,
