The Current View From Our Eyes

I believe in coincidences. I also believe that the truth of everything is found within life’s mysteries; those small insignificant ones and the huge gigantic ones.

I also believe in magic (another word for explaining the unknown), fantasy and most especially life as we’ve yet to understand it.

Each time a “new” discovery is made in academia/independent ventures is it really new or is it just some revealing of a layer of life already present in the selective consciousness of the universe?

Kismet, coincidence or fate all have the same flavor. Said flavor being what is currently understood and accepted on a particular day.

So boiling down all the facts, we of current ideologies or understanding do view life within the boundaries of our individual imaginations or put another way …

“Seeing is not believing but rather … believing is seeing.” ~ Plh

We Are The Good People – If Only

anewbegng

“Let us love, not hate in a world of uncertainty & fear. We will always be the one to shape our life’s flow and the direction. If we allow ourselves to be led, let us not blindly follow.”~Plh

“If only” you think to yourself knowing that worries will probably be the start of your new day making it extremely difficult to accomplish things with a happy heart, much less positive energy.

Truly, there exists altogether too much negativity to view and experience in the modern world of our lives a.k.a Social/News/Entertainment Media Overload. Those personal comments by those you know and those you don’t. News media’s seemingly never-ending reflections of what’s wrong in our lives and on our planet. And not to forget the amazing ongoing volume of advertising everywhere for everything (while some advertising appears to be of a positive nature it has still become an insidious encroachment in our everyday life).

But, what if we begin each day with the premise of knowing we are good people with positive, loving thoughts and then expand out from there.

Instead of investing in the newest, latest better than before iphones, pc’s or game playing apparatus and the ever newer extremely violent game (oft time becoming obsessive and addicting), invest instead in positive, happy comfortable feel good types of things (and not necessarily things you purchase ‘with a budget that says you can’t really afford it anyway’) for you, for your family, for your friends, for your coworkers, for life overall. Don’t you think we’ve carried consumerism just a smidgen too far?

Instead of watching increasingly violent movies and/ Cable/TV productions look for happy gentle movies and TV shows (hint: there’s a whole bunch of this type of available content from the previous century) or instead of reading dystopian or the weird and scary type of “best selling” books look for the well written novels with a more evenhanded approach to plot, character development and outcome. Instead of watching the “what’s wrong with everything and everybody” news reports – develop the instinct to recognize actual news reporting from opinion giving commentaries. Seek out places of well-being. Search for happy news. Good people doing good things in your community and beyond. Create an exciting new panorama for your daily life viewed from positive possibilities, subtracting those items (and people) which negate and diminish while adding items (and people) that assist your positive mentality to flourish. You and I can do this. Yes we really can.

Because I have to tell you there is a large amount of positive and good things happening out there. Although currently relegated to the background in much of our everyday life’s awareness; crowded out by negative sensationalism of every type.

You can turn your television or computer or iphone off for a few hours or days or …

You really can. It is still a really good world out there, more noticeable when there’s not so much noisy nonsense filtering it out.

You see, we are good people. You and I and the many overly concerned, confused and fearful multi-billions on this planet. And honestly, one by one, in a polite well mannered way, we can begin to remind each other of this humble and truthful fact. Beginning today.

So, yes we … you and I … can. Right now. This minute. One by one by one.

Wishing you a pleasant beginning of the new week. May it be a positive and prosperous one for you.

With sincere affection,

~ Penny

 

 

 

 

Remembering Who We Are

“We are of nature. When the two (humans and the natural order of our home planet/Universe) are separated and viewed as different or individual things, a grievous imbalance occurs. Harming both, as may be seen today. Connect with your natural roots ~ it is as life (all life) should be.” ~Plh

Have a positive and relaxing weekend. Wishing you most well and happy.

With much affection,

Your Life – A Miracle Waiting for You

New Day’s Song

“Stilling morning mists

in silent breath of dawn,

bring peaceful subtle longings

while whispering new day’s song.”

~ Plh, 2017

*

We are alive, a miracle in and of itself, yet as we go through daily routines and established habits (necessities we’ve determined we need for survival purposes) it is still our raw and basic emotions creating and shaping each new day. We are in a daily struggle to overcome self-imposed limitations by dwelling on previous dramas in our life even as we fear potential new ones in the making.

It’s good to recognize that our passions not only propel us forward but just as frequently pull us backward into an individualized and self-imposed prison of reality – one largely of our own making.

Untapped powers, currently existing within each and every one of us remain over burdened by our ever expanding collection of negative emotions, often to the point where we remain frozen as it relates to forward momentum needed for reaching personal goals of happiness and health or more simply put – that overall feeling of well being desired by each of us.

Dormant reservoirs of strength and creativity lay silently within our hearts and mind while negative emotions flourish creating additional handicaps (both mental and physical). Truth is, almost every single handicap we believe we have can be overcome with the right incentive,

which is …

… a sincere belief in one’s self. Your personal strength behind this belief propels your imagination and creativeness, which in turn then proceeds to ignore, let go of, or leap over internal boundaries (emotional limitations) you’d previously created. There exists today far too many examples (both anecdotal and factual evidence) of humans overcoming and succeeding against amazing odds for this not to be a truth to recognize, accept and embrace.

We … we create the reality for each of our new days.

Isn’t it past time for you to let go of personal perceived short-comings – the physical, the mental and the spiritual? Isn’t it time to become all you are truly capable of becoming?

Life is far more than we understand or comprehend and therein lies our new day reality.

There isn’t anything you or I can’t accomplish if we decide it is so, we’ve but to awaken ourselves to our own internal miracle which we are.

Life is ours for the living, the believing, and the doing.

For each of our own individual miracles to happen, it takes but our choice to make it so.

Believe in Yourself! 

Begin with this new day. It’s yours, after all!

Wishing each of you many prosperous and happy days to come.

My sincerely affection to all,

~ Penny

Beauty and Wisdom …

 

sunshine

… is there to be found in our every day lives.

There for us to view, if we take the time to see.

There for us to appreciate, if we remember to be grateful.

There for us to love, if we know and believe that we are in control of our thoughts, emotions and actions.

And remember too … truly, there is always time for love!

May your New Year be filled with blessings of every kind.

Thanks for stopping by,

With much affection,

Be Your Own Kind of Bravery

Fortune Favors the Brave

Gypsy tent and wagonThe gypsy fortune teller was very wise and wizened with great age. During this time of her current existence, she had told thousands of fortunes. Whispered and suggested mysterious and wonderful futures to a myriad of people. A great multitude of fools made her wealthy, as had the ambitious, vain, and greedy.

Of the down-trodden, the gentle, the forgotten, she had asked but a small token and then done her best to inspire; peering deep inside to witness their futures. Her “gift” – one not welcomed but accepted. On and on went her memories of those who sat across from her waiting breathless with anticipation for words pronouncing their fortune.

But before today, never had she viewed a woman of such gentle bravery, radiating from her being. Her soul – if you will. Her bravery shining piercingly through the air, hovering protectively as it spread out in progressive waves encompassing all.

A second glance within and the fortune teller finally understood. SHE had returned.

The fortune teller smiled a small, happy smile of relief. Holding out her hand in friendship, “hello my brave Sophia*, we meet again.” Fortune does favor the brave!

again and again

she comes forth to be heard

listen close my humans

~

“all life has purpose”

do you hear Sophia’s* words

echo through the ages

~

*Sophia, the Greek Goddess of Wisdom

And remember, small braveries are as valuable as big ones. Often more important too.

Have a great week ahead.

With sincere affection,

Go You Softly, Into Night of Day

Go You Softly, Into Night of Day

There are those who despair the day even before it begins!

There are  those who despair the day, even as it ends!

There  are those who despair the day whenever trouble wends!

… And then there will be those who don’t!

.

Those who with quiet strength manage to find a way!

Those who are standing strong, helping others in each new day!

and those, in spite of adversity – by your side do always stay.

So I say to you:

“Go You softly into night of day,

Trust in your heart to guide along the way.

And know that love spreads faster than

the fear of fear ‘can ever can’.”

~ Plh, 2016

.

Your compassion, prayers and hopes are sorely needed now for those suffering and in harms way, both here in the USA and abroad. Care, share, and help as you can.

With much affection,

~ Penny
