Every now and then
I remember when
it simple used to be
in thinking I was free ♡…
…life it all has changed
and has rearranged,
or is it really me,
yes, now at last I see ♡…
… freedom has a price
one we all must pay,
care for one another
every single day ♡…
… we can not survive
if hate and greed fill hearts,
freedom only works
if we’re not torn in parts ♡… ~ Plh
We are all of ONE Worldwide Community ~ let us care for one another! ♡
Be good to you too, have a great week ahead!
“If there were truly an easy way to get from here … to where each of us want to be in our lives
… we would all go that way.” ~ Plh
There is no easy way. There are however the following rules of the road (which I believe is the stuff of miracles):
- A belief of self – worth, values & capabilities, coupled with determination & commitment.
- Knowledge – never stop learning!
- Wisdom – listen to, learn from & pass on.
- Hope – a neverending belief in possibilities & potentials
- Faith – spiritually, emotionally, and/or mentally. A belief that there is more to life than what you think you understand.
- Charity – Gracefully accepting help (as needs be) but also reaching out an extended hand to others. A basic foundation of unconditional love.
- Gratitude – Should really come first. Never stop being grateful for what you do have.
- Love – I’d like to think no explanation is necessary. We all need love.
So what are you searching for?
All or perhaps most of the above? The only “Way” I can recommend is to learn and follow the above “rules of the road” faithfully, with great self determination. Seek out the wise. Acquire knowledge thru experience and remain open to change. Reach out to others with love in your heart. Believe you can. Have faith in miracles, they do happen!
I wish you well on your journey. Take care of you.
There is beauty everywhere in life. It is our own personal natures inside of us that detract from this rightness when we focus on what’s wrong with everything instead of concentrating on what’s right and making that even better. Should be simple, but it isn’t ~ definitely something for us to work on however, beginning today.
Share yourself; with love, compassion, forgiveness, understanding. Give of yourself; care, reach out, think of others and their needs.
“The light in your soul shines brightly, illuminating life’s beauty when you make a positive difference. I promise this is true.”

… and I hear you in my heart.
Each beat of my own heart reminds me of how wonderful you are. You, my beloved people of Earth give me reason for being. YOU, each of you, individually do this for I know we are ALL part of the whole of humanity, and to do our best we need each other.
Please believe that even though we may not know each other, I care about you. And I hear and love you, wherever you are in this wonderful planet we share together, you are not alone … you are loved. Don’t give up. Be brave. You’re worth it!
“I hear you in my heart, I feel you in my soul, we “all humans”
are connected to one another
even as we are connected to the very fabric of life on our planet.
Listen closely … you’ll hear and feel it too.
Our love for one another – is stronger than every negative thing
that’s out there right now trying to defeat you and I.
But we’re stronger than that.
Yes we are!”

He sat there posing so nicely, I couldn’t resist. This is a photograph taken last summer. I stepped outside and there he was …ready for his close-up, so I obliged.
And then I was reminded of this scene from a television show. Master ‘Po’ is teaching a student ‘Caine’, in a monastery, a lesson:
Master Po: Close your eyes. What do you hear?
Young Caine: I hear the water, I hear the birds.
Po: Do you hear your own heartbeat?
Po: Do you hear the grasshopper which is at your feet?
Caine: Old man, how is it that you hear these things?
Po: Young man, how is it that you do not?
I wonder what we miss because we aren’t really listening? Our planet is calling to us. Do you here her?
Thanks for stopping by, have a great Earth Day!
Here I am telling you a story instead of writing it. I do not pretend to have any acting skills what-so-ever, but am hopeful you will still enjoy my short story narrative!
Hope you liked the story, make today your happy day – you are loved!
“There are many words for stranger on this, our planet Earth.
Many different names to call those we have not as yet met.
Let one of those words be … FRIEND!” ~ Penny L Howe
On this eighth day of happiness let us fully embrace and recall the equal quality of life that all humans, everywhere, have the God given right to expect.
We assist ourselves and others by remembering each of us are strangers at one time or another – the only change that need occur in those times is reaching out with a strong and loving hand of friendship.
I hope everyone has been having a wonderful weekend in our bright and shiny New Year of hidden potentials and opportunities! Let’s make them happen, for ourselves and each other!
