Surviving to Thriving In Life

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

                                                                                                                         ~ Albert Camus

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.

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.

 

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.

The taste of remorse fills her tongue with the cold harsh truth.

Every day seems to sour after her twin flame of tomorrow.

Weeping her spirit cries, “Why can’t we be together again?”

The memory returns it was the hour of time when the truth ran free only to be caught and covered up with lies.

In the shadows, she wandered lost trying to keep sane with her sensational ambition to win.

Yet, still on that day the sun set and the moon arose. With the moon shining below dreadful deeds were done against the soul.

Outside that furious night, she lived smiling hoping that at forgiveness door she could meet her freedom from the pain.

She knocks…

Offering forgiveness she lingers there until bitterness showed up to whisper to her that it would not leave until her heart was free and healed.

Day and night she was tormented with thoughts unkind. Her heart filled with pain and want.

In the pool of her tears, she remembered the words whispered to her by bitterness. Suddenly she arose from where she lay, looking up at the shining full moon of the night ‘s sky she released bitterness from her heart to the air.

In that silence all was not lost as she regained her healing letting go of all the crumbs of energy left behind from bitterness. she left the house of forgiveness smiling. For the first time in a long time, she felt free.

In the light of the day shining upon her beautiful face, she left the house of forgiveness smiling. For the first time in a long time, she felt free.

Letting go of Control

Letting go of control can be one of the most difficult aspirations in life. When we finally decided to give up control and allow situations to take its natural course into our reality we can begin to live in more content states of being.

This is not to say that we must neglect to participate in life as creators of our reality but a plea to let go once we plant those seeds of our wish fulfilled so we can live happier productive lives.

It can be stressful trying to handle those minor details that at the time seem major so major in fact we stress over them almost having a mental tennis match bouncing various dreadful outcomes that may occur through are a lack of overbearing influence into a particular sitiatuion.

Bottom line we set the pace and after our creative act, we must let go and allow the universe to do the rest of the “work” as in rendering back what we have placed into the felid of energy via thoughts and feelings.

Below are a brief helping statement and mental exercise you can say or do to yourself if or when you feel as though you think you can do a better job at hashing out the details better than the divine universe can to bring about your desired state.

Today I surrender all the details associated with having my wish fullfilled. I trust in the divine universe, source or, God etc. to render into my realm of reality all that I desire. 

Take a moment now to breathe. Close your eyes if you like. Breathe in and out slowly and attempt to center yourself. Let go of all the potentially stressful thoughts or feelings associated with trying to force your desire. Release your yearning and believe it is already in the works and being arranged to your benefit as planned even if you can not see it happening.

Once you finished breathing and briefly entering into a state of calmness slowly repeat or say inwardly to yourself…

I shall ignore all evidence of the obstacles, barriers, or difficulties associated with my wish fulfilled.This or something better is possible for me. I release all doubt, fear, or impatience in regards to my desire.  Everything is as it meant to be for me today to experience.

This or something better is possible for me. I release all doubt, fear, or impatience in regards to my desire.  Everything is as it meant to be for me today to experience.

I release all doubt, fear, or impatience in regards to my desire.  Everything is meant to be for me today to experience.
