I Went For A Walk: 09/24/2016

I thought about riding my bike this morning, but instead I took out my walking sandals, got my phone, set it to an audio book, picked up my walking cane, and took my back pack with water in it.    I took a walk to work.  I was off. I scheduled this time off last month with the intention of going to the Renaissance Festival.  I could have slept in, and I did.  This is a ME weekend.

What does that mean?  It means that for whatever reason, this weekend has turned into some time that I can take for myself, and take care of me.  Take care of my home, and enjoy the presence of Self.  Of music.  Of my little furry company.  I have no massages scheduled all weekend.  I have no work all weekend.

So I took a walk, and listened to some Wayne Dyer on the way.  I watched the squirrels running around with their little bushy tails in the air, carrying nuts up trees.  I watched a chipmunk head for the hedge.  I saw a Dog watching me from a window. I watched a cat, sitting in a window, watching all the birds flying around, and the critters in the trees. To take care of me, converse, and continue my walk.

On the way home, I took different route.  I different landscape to observe and smell.  Walking by the older houses surrounded by trees and unique landscape, and I scented the Earth.  That wet earthy smell of plants and earth, that comes around in the early day, after some good rains.   Then I was looking down, and seeing all the fallen leaves.  I thought of a friend of mine, and her beautiful art.

Delayne is such a beautiful soul. She’s been doing faces. Giving faces for those little souls in nature. She’s a beautiful Soul that heals with her art.

I thought about the changes that have been occurring in my life. How looking at things differently has changed my outlook on things. How changing how I think, has changed the way my brain works. How changing the way I act, has changed the environment around me. How I don’t need to shout my truth, to know my truth. I don’t need to share my truth, to know my soul. I know my soul. I have a feeling of where I’m going, and that is mine.

I can think of all the excuses that this weekend is mine, but in the end it is still a weekend that was carved out even without me knowing truly what it was for, till it was here.


Cleaning and Purging: 09/20/2016

I’m listening to Leo King, and he’s being don’t do anything major, which is kinda what I’m feeling.  Yet there is this part of me that wants to move, change, rearrange things.  I don’t really like standing still sometimes.  However with the things going on right now, I should step back, relax, and pay attention to me.   Which is what I’m feeling kinda about this week.  This week is about paying attention to me, and doing some me work.

I try to get the trash and recyclables out before trash day. Last night, the “plan” was to do just that, but I got to cleaning, which turned into putting things away, which turned into purging and cleaning out the fridge…ick.  I went through some of my clothes, “asked” if I should keep or throw, a lot went.  We tend to keep clothes with the mentality that we’ll fit in them again, instead of letting them go and some one else enjoy them.

There are several reasons that lead me to clean.  One: I don’t like standing clutter in the living area of my home.  Two: things need to change periodically, and I tend to do that with seasons.  I’m already looking at the living room, and thinking how to do it for this autumn/winter.  Three: it’s when the occasion says NOW!  Like last night, I was kinda on the roll, and … then I was done.

Now that I’ve got my distraction out of the way, I’m looking at my work schedule this week, and it’s looking like a me week.  I week where I pay attention to the home and myself.  Relax, smell the air, torment my cat :), have a cup of tea, read, listen to music, etc.  Take care of me.


Changing Energy: 09/13/2016

Am I who I was when I graduated High School?  Am I who I was when I went to college the first time?  Am I who I was when I worked for SunTrust Mortgage?  Am I who I was when 09/11/2001 happened?

No. No.  and No.

But why?  Why am I different?  Because as I grow, I learn.  As I grow and learn, I change.  I can’t be the same person that I was then, that I am now.  I will change everyday.  I will be a different person in a day, a month, a season, or a year from now.  There will be nothing in my body that is exactly as it was when it was yesterday, last month, last season, or even in the last minute.  Everything changes.

So why do we fight to maintain the status quo or control of the situation, when even the situation changes as we strive to hold it still?  It’s energy, and you can’t truly control energy, you can harness it, but control can be a very dangerous illusion.

People work in jobs they hate, that make them sick, that they tolerate, because it brings in the money.   People vote for candidates that they hate or dislike, because it maintains the status quo, and they truly believe they have no other choice.  People do the same things day in and day out, never changing the routine, because it’s comfortable, and sometimes they don’t know any better.

If our thoughts, bodies, surroundings, words, actions, even the Universe are all energy, and we wish to maintain the status quo, we will.  Yet our hopes, our dreams, our wishes, our destinies will still pop up, they will still show us what is possible outside of our comfort zone.  If the Universe, The Divine, The God, The Goddess, or The Spirit wants us to succeed, then it will still show us what is possible just outside of the status quo.  All it takes is a step, a choice, a decision to do better, be better, and act with love.

During the day we see blue sky, we see the sun as it travels the sky, and the day changes as it progresses forward.  As the wheel turns, it changes.  Yesterday’s sunrise was different than today’s.  Today’s sunset will be different from yesterday’s.  As the sun sets, the stars come out, and we glimpse the Universe outside of the Earth.

The sky itself is not the Limit, it’s a challenge.
