A Silver Lining

silver lining

I always try to remember that pain is a necessary part of our spiritual growth
And that the Universe is unfolding as it should.
Lately, keeping my Zen-ism in check is proving to be challenging as life tosses obstacles at me like oversized donkey kong barrels.
I’ll just keep jumping.

Never let go of hope. It’s the one seed that will keep you deeply grounded.
Over the weekend I caught a glimpse of that hope, disguised as a beautiful silver lining in the sky.

Occasionally I like to escape my pen and quietly hover behind the clouds, watching the world go by.

It seems I hovered up there for six long months.

A few days ago the clouds were clearing in the sky.

I sat on a park bench and captured their beauty.

Cloud cover broken.

Blue skies ahead.

Calm So Deep

Here is calm so deep, grasses cease waiting… wonderful how completely everything in wild nature fits into us, as if truly part and parent of us. The sun shines not on us, but in us. The rivers flow not passed, but through us, thrilling, tingling, vibrating every fiber and cell of the substance of our bodies, making them glide and sing.

Fall in Caledon, Ontario.

9 km of forest trails, fairies, and unexpected furry friends.

Saturdays don’t get much better than that.

11:11

This upcoming week is going to be an energetic culmination and release of the past few weeks-and thankfully word has it that the stress will subside. Must be the Full Moon (and lunar eclipse) coming on the 24th. My days are busy and my nights filled with vivid dreams. I keep getting messages about the names Allistair, Sophie, and Fred and have absolutely no idea why. I’m thinking they are attached to the Bosma case but I’m not sure. I have seen 11:11 three times in the last two days, and tonight my dog was intently staring at the ceiling in my bedroom, bobbing her head back and forth like she was following something moving in the space up there. Whatever she was seeing I wasn’t- but change is definitely in the air. I think when earthly energies are this intense it’s important to remember that we can still create our own quiet in the madness. Life can be so overwhelming. It’s important to remember that you also have the power to turn it off. Tune in the good. The smell of a flower.  The sound of laughter. The love you feel. The music that makes your soul sing. Focus on the very essence of 11:11, on that split second where you stop thinking about everything external that worries you, and just remember how amazing it is to be alive.

11-11. Reflect on that special place where time stands perfectly still and just be. Look deeply into that mirror image of yourself and infuse it with peace. Just for today, I won’t be angry. Just for today, I will not worry. Just for today, I will be grateful. Just for today, I will do my work honestly. Just for today, I will be kind to every living being.

That includes you 🙂

Celebrate Life

Celebrate life.

Swim in the joy of laugher.

Drown in the emotion of love.

Float above negative energy.

Pray for crumbs to feed the hungry.

Sing the songs that make you soar.

Feel the world and give it more.
