All that we need – each other!

By Karpati Gabor

There are days

when all that we need is a gentle touch.

… a soothing hug.

… a welcoming smile.

… an understanding look.

… a shared moment in time.

… So we don’t feel so empty,

… so frightened by both the known and the unknown,

… so angry by the unfairness of life,

… so bewildered by changes,

and so infinitely alone –

There are days when all that we need is each other!

My heart has room – does yours?

The Loving Heart!

If I filled this page with persuasive words would you be persuaded to think on what I’m saying? To perhaps change how you view things?

Would you trust me? Would you believe my words, unconditionally?

If I promised you untold riches and glories never before realized, would you come running and stand in line?

If I offered you a pill that would make everything all better, would you take it because I told you it would work?

If I said I could keep you safe and shelter you from all danger would you gather around me?

Do you think that one person can have the answers to your trials and tribulations?

Do you truly believe that just one single human being on the planet of more than 7 billion can “fix” things?

Do you think that even a small group of people can show you the best way to lead your life so that you will “for sure” be happier and better off than you are now.

Do you … Really?

The Answer: No one person can. I certainly would if I could. Yes I’m up for that. My heart has room for everyone on the planet. yes it does!

To bring peace, harmony and equality to all the peoples of the earth. I would be so good with that. To respect all life. Human, animal and plant.

Yes I’m good with that one too. Even more so because we are the caretakers for each other and our planet, these are our forests, mountains, valleys, deserts, oceans and rivers – and all the species that dwell on our planet – our responsibility. So if I could I surely would!

“But positive change (for all) can only happen when we achieve a recognition that each of us in our own imperfect way are perfect for who, how and where we are.”

Until then we stay in disharmony with nature and at war with not only each other but ourselves as well.

By jpkwitter

Can we change? Of course we can. Look to the positives we have slowly achieved so far, not the negatives. Will we change for the better? Well, that’s up to each of us. Every single one.

And can I make a difference in the world with just my words?

I don’t know, I like to think maybe,

but mostly I will try because …

“I truly believe there is room on our planet for everyone!”

On the Third Day of Happiness – Peace

a single candle

Sharing Peace

I light a single candle

Shining peace upon the land,

I give thanks for all my treasures

Nurtured close at hand,

~

My heart does store most precious

All the love that it can hold,

Gentle thoughts do comfort me

Your blessings are foretold.

~

I’ve seen you in my mind’s eye

I’ve felt you in my soul,

Reaching I embrace you

And lovingly enfold.

~

We all were made for loving

To our hearts be true,

And as the glowing candle

I share my peace with you.

Once upon a special time, there passed a great decree
There would be ten days of love for thee and thou and me.

To all who live upon this earth who share with me this day

I wish you all the very best in every single way!

You know the saying “Practice makes perfect“? We hear this repeatedly while growing up. We need lots of practice to get good at anything we want to do really well.

Well guess what …

“We all need to practice a lot more
when it comes to loving others!”

I lay me down

By mxruben

I lay me down

look up at skies

no end in view

before my eyes.

*

Just perfect blue

or so it seems

my lying here

with just my dreams.

Worries gone

they’ve disappeared

There’s only now

without the fears.

*

If I might wish

and make it so

my peaceful state

to grow and grow.

*

Then I will rise

renewed ’til when

I lay me down

and dream again.

A most happy weekend everyone,

Quiet Times

“There are those quiet times
of contemplation,
where I find
I am my own perfect companion
to be with.”

Have a great Thursday everyone! Find some quiet time “If you can!”

*A PennyQuote, from A Penny For Your Thoughts

We are Earth’s Children … shall we grow up now?

~

Please read!

All of us, every single person, is born with amazing potential for growth!

Each of our lives – so very precious,

and necessary!

How can we know the significant difference any one person

when given love, opportunity and education

might make in the tomorrow of our days,

when we, like children, base many of our (adult) decisions

on our personal emotions and preconceptions;

and not on intelligent reasoning?

Poor “life changing” decisions are made:

… in the name of  intolerance,

… in the name of indifference,

… in the name of power,

… in the name of religion,

… in the name of greed,

… in the name of hate!

It defies intelligence and logic to not preserve

the most valuable resource we possess.

The human race (in it’s entirety)!

The most

valuable commodity there is

“Every single one of us!”

Together

there is nothing we can’t accomplish

If we work as one!

We are Earth’s children! But are we still growing?

Faith can shape us, filling our souls with untold riches …

… unless fashioned into a weapon to be

used against others.

Our global citizenship can become a harvest of abundance …

… unless we stratify and divide within ourselves deciding we are superior based on  the false premise of entitlement.

Our capacity for loving (and forgiving) can expand our futures!

Our capacity for hatred and fear can destroy it!

Shall we grow up now?

Contentment

Sometimes no words are really needed to explain a feeling of … well … perfect contentment!

Those times when it seems that all is well with the world! You’re in the perfect spot to be.

And in that moment you wouldn’t change a single thing!

Have an excellent Wednesday,

~ Penny
