The Weight of Human Gravity

~

We (all of us) prejudice our thinking processes with our human expectations. Consciously or not, our lives revolve around personal perspectives of how things should be or how we would like them to be, individually or socially speaking.

This is most definitely a part of the human condition. “Human Gravity” is the predilection (guided by various  emotions) to weigh ourselves down with the “how comes“, “what ifs“, and “why nots” and the ever popular “it’s not fair“. But then most of us know that life isn’t intentionally unfair or fair.

The ability to reach fulfillment of our hopes, wishes and desires absolutely resides within each of us. What might be of assistance is recognizing we are in complete control of the degree of human gravity we chose to allow.

And perhaps human gravity might not become so heavy and burdensome if our view of freedom came from an expanded viewpoint. That being:

“Freedom isn’t only a thought, an ideal or an expression. Freedom is allowing the manifestation of all our human being/senses to open completely to life experiences, witnessed by and with full and complete cooperation from heart & soul! Now that’s freedom, unfettered and released. There is no gravity. None what-so-ever!” ~Plh

Wishing you a wonderful holiday season. One with a minimum amount of human gravity.

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,

I Cannot Bring You Peace, But This I Can Do –

As one person to another I can share love and peaceful intent – pass along calm, caring words that can give rise to positive thoughts and actions for bringing us all just a little bit closer to each other.

This I can do with openhearted expression and understanding. One person, one day at a time.

THIS I CAN DO AND SO CAN YOU!

With sincere love and affection,

The Freedom of Your Thoughts … Illusionary?

Nature's Paintbox:

Does the mind wander? Be cautious, there is flotsam – impregnable, polluting, and ever enticing – floating nearby, sometimes successfully pulling one inexorably toward the shores of inevitability.

Is there true freedom in thought? I wonder?

Grains of truth and hope do sparkle along the shoreline and can be found clinging in shallow tidal pools of awareness, even as the currents of existence ebb and flow.

Away from these imponderable shores, one can be found being concerned with futures. Wandering thoughts venture into the Mountains and Valleys of Uncertainties where contraindications often lead to the Cliffs of Lemmings where – located at the extreme edge – is the precipice of one’s known reality. If not careful our thoughts can morph into a herd-like mentality.

I know we do not desire for conscious thoughts to be distorted from the natural order of things, nor do we willfully choose to be persuaded, influenced or lulled into a condition contrary to who we are.

Yet there are outward influences that often subjugate our understanding and desire for a thing. Often insidious and unequivocally mind altering.

So I shall ask again. Are our thoughts really our own?  And if not – I promise that I – for one – will escape the shores of my own Inevitability!

Thank you, may your weekend be a pleasant one.

What Rabbit Hole …

alice

You know the one I mean. The one too many people aren’t seeing or pretending they’re not seeing, as if it’s just a fantasy in some fairytale book. But I’m speaking reality here. The one where we (humanity) have fallen down into Alice’s rabbit hole – for real! Not many words needed since you know of what I speak. In fact, lately there are too many words and not enough positive action and therefore I would like to suggest the following:

Love while you can.

Love who you can.

Love when you can.

Love all you can!

Whether large or small

doesn’t matter at all!

No blaming game

It comes out the same.

when all is said and done,

We are  all One!

Period!

With much love and affection,

Our Real Enemy

You're safe with me. Find these people. They are out there. Stop filling your heart space with that which "isn't" so there is room for that which "is" to enter. Know that you are deserving of this NOW. Release old belief systems telling you otherwise again and again.. Until what you want shows up. And it will.. as soon as you refuse to settle for less than you deserve. Empty, Adjust and Heal, Fill ❤tami:

“A child understands fear and the hurt and hate it brings.” – Nadine Gordimer

FEAR

So obvious when one really considers. After all, fear is the true opposite of love, not hate. Hate doesn’t happen unless fear is already there first, inside one’s mind.

Fear manifests in many forms: Fear of the unknown, fear of the different, fear of the future, fear of the past, fear of bullies, fear of being thought different from, fear of …. the list is endless and once fear exists, it is all too easy for an entire host of negative emotions to become fear’s companions and they do.

Recognize this:  A sense of feeling less than, or do you recognize perhaps these fellow companions of fear; separating yourself from some by going with the crowd to be accepted (even if you disagree with what the crowd is saying or doing) or prejudice, disdain, scorn, hate, becoming superior to overcome insecurity, being dismissive and probably the worse one of all – indifference. You know, that comfortable place where you dwell because it’s safe (or so you believe).

If you are alive there truly is no such thing as safe. There are however amazing opportunities to thrive in an unsafe world made so by the “fear factor”. Believing in yourself is one. Caring for others is another. There is a tangible strength in a community of caring & sharing, loving people. Power brokers use fear as a weapon, often used to separate people – one from the other – and they do it well. They always have … because it works. History records this fact for those who would see.

In our world of today Fear is alive and well and running rampant around the planet and power brokers are still utilizing this weapon skillfully and to an advantage.

Is there anything one can do to change this? This is a question we each must answer for ourselves. Will we be ruled and influenced by fear? Or step out of the fear induced society of today and become our own person, guided by the richness of love that can become disused and lay dormant in the hearts of mankind.

I say once again that in a community of caring, sharing and loving people, whether the community be your immediate neighborhood or one spanning a country or even our entire planet there is no fear that cannot be conquered where love is the ruling state of (well) being.
