Darkness in the Light of Day

In the still of every night

The stars may still be shining bright

But Darkness in the light of day

Makes hard to keep our fears away!

*

I do not know from when to where

Cannot conceive how we can’t care.

What we’ve become to darken ways

darkening all tomorrows days.

*

Where have gone the love and joy

for every single girl and boy.

STOP, stop no more I say

THIS, this is not the way.

Brothers, Sisters are we all

All together or we fall

and fall and fall

and fall and … fall!

Your Heartsong … Singing Loud and Strong!

musicalheart

Echoes of Heartsong

“The beat

The rhythm

It’s there

And I’m listening.

The sound piercing sweet

Surely the most beautiful thing to be heard.”

~ Plh, 2016

Did you know your heartsong sings for you … sings from you … but mostly … singing of you!

Of the “who” you are!

How glorious and magnificent you are!

Did you know that? Did you?

Your heart song echoes through your being

telling those who would listen

all that’s needed to know,

and even more!

The knowledge that your heartsong is bonded with and shared by many.

Each knowing the other and their own unique heartsong.

All beating to the universal rhythm of life.

So Create, life awaits your heartsong.

Be Passionate, that’s how life burns bright,

Be Strong, you are not alone,

Be Brave, carry on.

know and be assured.

Your heartsong and you

… GO ON!

Thanks for stopping by, hope your week is being good to you.

With much affection,

Fearless … Never Forget the Nature of Who We Are!

us

The Spiral of Strength ~ All of Us!

So many things seem fearful today

  • Fear of the unknown
  • Fear of failure
  • Fear of our futures
  • Fear of the threat of terrorism

And yet within each of our hearts, nestled right next to our love of life, is an amazingly unlimited reservoir  of quiet strength, energy and power waiting to be released … should the need be there.

So when you read or hear (daily) the many people (on all forms of media) speaking so many words (opinions and criticisms) about everything that appears to be going wrong; on our planet,  in our country, and our communities, be aware there are many good things happening too. Many. If you don’t believe me start searching online. There are millions of people locally and around the world, making positive differences every day. They’ve already activated their internal power to get things moving away from the negative and into the positive. (Amazing how many of the news media report the negative and not the positive!)

Each of us can make positive things happen too although a good caveat to remember: Change can occur without anger, rudeness, crudeness, vulgarity, meanness, and cruelty – not a good thing – nor nice for a person to say, do or be. Definitely not the way to achieve positive change for yourself and others!

But if you have doubts and fears today, right now … fear less … you are not alone in your concerns but the bigger and most important thing to remember is that our mutual strength of “being there” is HUGE. We, the silent majority and our mutual strength of “overcoming and pursuing the right path” for all our futures is alive and well, it’s never been stronger!

You are not alone , there are many of us and we are … fearless … in all the ways that matter!

Thank you, I hope your week is proceeding well for you.

With affection,

Sharing the Love Within Each of Us

together

The Wisest man

I ever knew,

had little to say

and lots to do.

But at the close of every day

He’d turn to others and  he’d say …

Well done my friend … well done! 

So one day I asked what he meant. Was he referring to a specific job well done? That the work day was over? That it was time to go home and rest? That he was satisfied with the others and the day’s accomplishments, and he replied to me:

“Yes!”

~ Plh, 2015

I never get over the fact that there are those who go through each day and pass “good will” around the way I see so many others pass around ridicule and disdain, indifference and cruelty.

There are many who seem preoccupied with themselves, their personal wants and desires …  and yet , even still, there are those quiet gentle people who always seem to have that extra bit of time to extend a helping hand, to make a small difference, to speak no ill will. I wonder why that is?

I believe within most of us is a “fire” – to make a positive difference, to be and do more. Buried deep, perhaps, but in there none the less. I think perhaps now is a good time for the sleeper within us to awaken!

Thank you for your visit. Have a wonderful day and better tomorrow!

Seeking A Proper Place

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

“Curiously Committed to Seeking”

Is there a proper place where we should be?

There are those who seek knowledge for the purpose of knowing a thing for it’s own sake. The curious ones.

There are those who seek power so they might control the lives of others.

There are those who seek wisdom so they might increase the nature of their own understanding, using this learned knowledge to assist both themselves and others in life’s travails.

There are those who seek to follow others. Their place being to dwell among those who wait to be lead by other seekers.

“Seeking Fearful Refuge”

Seeking has its dangers. It can come with confrontation, disappointments, and betrayal, for there are many who fear seekers. Holding them in the same fearful regard as the unknown.

Curious seekers may fear the unknown, but their desire to discover, understand and explore the unknown is greater than the sum of their fears.

And finally there are those who both seek and follow. Alternating their course of action during their life experience depending on choices made.

For all of us, the seekers, non-seekers and those in between, there is still a sameness of purpose. A single thing desirable to all of us, whether the thought be subconscious or at the forefront of our minds.

We all desire to know of the proper place where we should be, where we belong …

– we do belong together!”

The Exercise Our Pets Do better than We!

By greyerbaby4

 “… Exercise your “forgiveness” muscle every day!” PennyQuote

Our animals seem to have it down pat. We still need to work on this exercise – a whole lot more!

Unconditional love … yeah … that’s the ticket!

Have a great weekend everyone! Filled with lots of love (and forgiveness)!
