Surviving to Thriving In Life

In the midst of winter, I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer.

Sometimes in life, we can face our bitter winter which more often than not offers a cold place of indifference that leads us to a place of despair, hard times, and often wondering what the hell is going on.

It’s on those bitterly bad days two options can appear, fight back with a will to survive or to take flight into the vicious cycle of entertaining negativity. Seems simple right? Before you think there is some source of magical negativity deflector you’ll have to find the nearest mirror and look at yourself first. We have to learn to be our own filter and deflector if we expect to rise above our winter ready to blossom when spring returns.

In this life, we have to learn to be our own filter and deflector of negativity if we expect to rise above our winter days with a determined readiness to blossom when our precious spring days return. Our hearts and inner core feelings can give us the powerful motivation needed to imagine the unseen as if it were seen and keep our hope of success alive.

Sure, thinking positive when you feel your being crushed emotionally seems bearable at first but as we often find out all that unbelievable inner self-talk fades when we don’t actually believe in our positive affirmations we are confessing over our circumstances.

Our words become empty of its formable power if they lack true authentic feelings behind them.

Therefore, we can gain bake our piloting power over our lives even when circumstances seem stacked against us. We can gain a very vibrant advantage to survive when we in love aspire to create a better outlook or vision for our outcomes. When we focus our attention on the glimmers of piercing light through the darkness it’s enough to keep us upbeat and hopeful for a brighter day and prosperous tomorrow.

It’s true Terrible things happen but when we embrace every part of our life experience as a journey and learn from every possible occurrence we can grow into from not only a surviving human being but a thriving soul.

The death of an Action Movie Legend, Roger Moore aka 007 James Bond has passed away at age 89.

Normally, I’m not one for personal posts simply because I normally prefer to let my art speak and well let my words bleed with my emotions even if they are masked. However today I had to take the time to offer a nod of farewell to one of the most iconic actors, Roger Moore who is associated with one of my favorite movie franchises, 007.

Living 89 years is very extraordinary feet yet, still painful loss as his son reported via twitter.

From personal experience, I know how gut-wrenching losing a father can be especially one that has been very loving and influential.

There have been many actors who have picked up the James Bond 007 agents that held the mantle of Ian Flemming’s 007 characters on the big screen. In the span of 54 years of the film’s franchise, there have been 12 James Bond actors and over 26 movies made. Roger Moore was one of the memorable James Bond 007 agents that appeared as its leading man from 1973-1985. Each added their own flare and style to the part which made the series that much more intriguing for all these decades with its fans.

Each 007 James Bond Agent added their own flare and style to the part which made the 007 series that much more intriguing for its fans which have spanned for decades on the big screen.

Each 007 film packed a lot of great action and well women of course which controversially often participated as means to end but yet offered their own sex appeal and finesse to the series.

Overall, Roger Moore was a fantastic 007 and I’m sure from family members, friends and fans he will be missed. Rest In peace Roger Moore and may your soul travel well.

Adrift From You

The oceans know no bounds to the fury set in my heart.

I go day and night longing for your sweet embrace. My cup offering infuses me with worry that you’ll leave and never come back. Now sorrow buries me lovesick.

In my own wonderful imagination, we are united again traveling along the seasons in love. How vast is the ocean of love that set a path for victory? Adrift You render me solid grazing along the waters with delight. Thinking of you makes me strong.

My heart races forth to reunite with you again. On that great day, when we gather into company our love will shine together once more and my soul will be in heaven.

 

 

 

No Qualm No Foul

It’s like a storm that rages in the night but has nothing to do but to destroy whatever stands in its wake.

What am I?

Hate.

Hate is destructive and makes lands turn into chaotic cesspools of manure.

Yet, it is love that remains strong in the days’ where insolence rules.

Love is productive and makes everything grow. For it is that Love never fails and is the consistent presence of truth that protects humanity throughout the ages.

 

Collaboration Vs. Opposition 

The roses that bloom in the Spring are as vibrant as the winter snow, all is in preparation for illustrious summer days.

When the rain comes flooding down it also works is in collaboration with the earth. As the Earth sings its delight the rain penetrates its gift into the ground. The plants too rejoice as nature takes its imaginative course into our reality.

How wondrous it is to see how the world around us takes its place in order resolving into its own beauty outward.

Humanity has its unique connection to the visible world.

In humanities thoughtful aspirations it can seek unity together as being one in the open air. blooming like the rose and settling like the snow all in preparation for blissful summer days in the light of love and happiness.

In humanities thoughtful aspirations it can seek unity together as being one together in the open air. Sprouting like the rose and settling like the snow all in preparation for blissful summer days in the light of love and happiness.

It is then as one like a blooming rose and as the settling snow, all can wait in preparation for blissful summer days in the light of love and happiness.

To Pursue A Mocking Bird

 

It was in that moment of pursuit that I realized miracles can happen.

Frame-outlands back woods where justice lingers looking for a friend. 

Season-Eyeing the birds waiting for a moment to fly. 

Outback-wilderness speaks and dust picks up in a fury blowing outward onto the grassy knoll.

Flames-Passion has no place among the strong. Energy as no desire for the rich. 

Piles-leaps in the womb until it quivers into the soul for birth. What am I?

Opera-tones that speak in the night until it rings into a message of truth.

Booths-Keep quit the thoughts of many but savor the intrigue. 

Solids-rock hard ambition nestled in with delight.

Plain Jane-Dusty old warlords who can’t get their attitude right.

Peaks-It wasn’t until pleasure kept its word that I took a moment to puke.

Destiny-Fire and Ice. Water and Air. Earth and Breath. Soul and Spirit. 

Wheel-Two steps closer to a dream deferred.

Pain-A substance necessary for growth. Weeds.

Love-Guides in the moonlight. Flickers out into eternity until it stops.

Air-Breathe

Death-Breeds you for rebirth then shoots you out like a dream.

Tolerance-Backsplash

Fire-cleansing marks that wave for clarity.

Thriving In Temporary Time-Outs

Sometimes it sucks to have to wait. Being a fire sign does not help when you’re told to be patient either. However, being patient and just waiting offers its own beneficial gifts no matter how annoying it seems to endure.

Being patient allows us to stop, look, and listen. This forceful time-out and unwanted happening can be a gift from the universe believe it or not. By using this sudden pause to our momentum we have time to go within and notice life for what it is, Life.

We often can move so fast that we forget to milk our forceful pause for all its worth and notice it as an opportunity to gain inner clarity and observe the world around us.

The world offers lots of distractions and technology doesn’t make it any easier. The constant desire for stimulation can make silent pregnant pauses awkward and unwanted. Yet, we can take the time we are called to be patient to channel our angry energy of our hold-up and use it in a productive way where we can search within our souls to dwell in peace.

By confronting ourselves in these moments of delay we have a unique opportunity to can gain further clarity about ourselves and our situation.

It’s in the stillness of time in the arms of patience we can learn and discover more about ourselves and of those around us.

We have an opportunity to learn and grow in these moments where it seems all is lost and time isn’t on our side. For, in fact, everything exists within the now of time. For it’s in the now of time where life takes on its play and allows us to steadily embrace every moment of our lives. We can also begin to cherish these moments of pause as a beneficial experience.

This is no easy task and not for the faint of heart. But with practice, we can gain an appreciation of these moments where we are called to be patient by embracing every formation of our day and seeing a temporary universal pause to be patient as a gift, not a curse.
