NEW BEGINNING 2013

With the dawn of 2013, what hopes do you have for yourself and for this world?  Are they similar to mine?

My hope is for more OPEN HEARTEDNESS

for humanity to WAKE UP

I hope for more transparency……I want to know why, this world is the way it is….why such turmoil, why such suffering?  We need this to change!  We need a NEW BEGINNING!    Starting with……..

TRANSPARENCY

Transparency leads to finding out truth.   Truth leads to change.  We cannot have change without knowing truth.

WE NEED TRUTH, BALANCE AND LOVE IN THIS WORLD

NEW BEGINNINGS require more AWARENESS 

We need to become aware of WHY humanity is so complacent and compliant in accepting the injustices in the world.  And why we believe there is nothing “the little me”  can do about it.   There is so much we can do, but first, we must wake up and become aware of the WHY, the HOW, and the WHO…..  manipulating  so many of us to sleep…. numbing us out so that we tolerate the unfairness and turmoil in our world.  

FIND OUT THE TRUTH

Peel the layers back until you find the truth for yourself.

There is a call for us to have a NEW PERCEPTION

of SEEING THINGS not only as the are, but seeing things the way they should be.

NEW BEGINNINGS require us to QUESTION, LEARN, EVOLVE, EXPAND  beyond what we think our limitations are.

for the TRUTH is WE ARE LIMITLESS CONSCIOUSNESS

CONTEMPLATING LIFE and DREAMS

Today seems like a perfect day to contemplate life and “what dreams may come”.

Life is a collection of ideas, and dreams being born……

Following a dream can get a bit messy, but it’s fun too!

Jump in with both feet…..don’t be afraid!

Dreaming big can be fabulously exhausting dahling,  and sometimes requires taking a break to regroup so to speak!

or maybe eat something tasty…

You know your dreams are fantastic, so they mustn’t go unrealized.

Dream it UP and dream it BIG!

 

Dreaming dreams with friends is the best of fun!

PURSUE, PERSEVER AND MOST OF ALL, PRACTISE PATIENCE.

 

CREATING BEAUTY IS LIVING A PURPOSEFUL, MEANINGFUL LIFE.

CREATING A LITTLE MAGIC

I am attracted to and awed by all things wild and wonderful!  I think my art  embodies this love of enchantment and magical wonder, through the eclectic variety of art work that I love creating.  This week I have had fun, making magic wands!

The wands are made of driftwood, beach glass, crystals, glass tiles, beads and other found embellishments.  The seem to hold powers of intention!

I AM ONE OF THE SEARCHERS

“There are, I believe, millions of us.  We are not unhappy, but neither are we really content.  We continue to explore life, hoping to uncover its ultimate secret.  We continue to explore ourselves, hoping to understand.  We like to walk along the beach………..

we are drawn to the ocean, taken by its power, it’s unceasing motion,  its mystery and unspeakable beauty.

We like the forests…..

and the mountains,

deserts and hidden rivers,

and the lonely cities as well.

Our sadness is as much apart of our lives as is our laughter.  To share our sadness with one we love is perhaps as great a joy as we can know …… unless it be to share our laughter.

We searchers are ambitious only for life itself and for every thing beautiful it can provide.  Most of all we love and want to be loved.  We want to live in a relationship that will not impede our wandering, nor prevent our search, nor lock us in prison walls.

I am far more aware of the power that guides each and everyone of us along the way, and provides us with insights and people we need for our journey.  There are, indeed men and women too gentle to live among wolves and only when joined with them, will life offer the searcher, step by step all that is good and beautiful.

Life becomes not a confused struggle or pointless pain, but an evolving mosaic masterpiece of the person we are destined to become.”    ….James Kavanagh, poet

LIFE IS A PATHWAY

While I patiently wait for Spring to arrive and show me its fresh colors and its promise of New Beginnings……I have been thinking about LIFE, (I am an introvert, and introverts think a lot….about a lot!).  Today I got thinking about our human LIFE experience being like a long winding PATHWAY.

Every one of us get to choose how we walk our pathway.   Each day that we are alive, we have the power to decide whether to be open to expanding our consciousness with regards to how we live our life, or we can choose to remain closed off to any new way of thinking or being, letting our fears run our lives.

So with all that free will to make decisions on how we are going to live our life, doesn’t it make our LIFE PATH choices, incredibly interesting, however, we choose!!

The pathway I choose, is the one where I consciously try to expand my compassion, love and understanding, not only for myself, but for others in my life.   (Once you know better, you do better.)   Practising being conscious is not necessarily an easy path, and there certainly are days, when I get ticked off at myself for falling back into bad habits and thoughts that don’t serve me well at all.  But my LIFE and PATHWAY have been criss- crossed by other people’s pathways in so many wonderfuly remarkable, blessed, interesting and surprising ways, that I honestly say,  I LOVE my life!  I wake up every morning in awe of the day, with anticipation and wonder of where the pathway will lead me…….today.

LIFE  IS  A  PATHWAY

You never know what is just around the corner.

Sometimes it is so beautiful and fantastic it can take your breath away.

Sometimes along the pathway, we meet a few obstacles.

 At times the pathway feels unstable when we are unsure of ourselves.

And at times, we don’t know which way to go.

Sometimes it seems its such an uphill climb to get where we want to go.

 Sometimes we fear the unknown.

But somehow there always seems to be a light at the end of the tunnel.

And an inner light that guides us.

To places where peace and love reside.

And being open to a different point of view.

We can learn to cross a bridge with confidence when we come to it.

Yes, there is SO MUCH to learn and experience along our way.

 I think the purpose of our life long learning is to experience JOY and to …. 

 and to appreciate the Beauty in everyone and everything around us.

The Beauty and reward of this Life, is that the Pathway always leads…………

HOME

 I sometimes wonder if this LIFE IS BUT A DREAM, and often ponder what it would be like to really wake up from this dream!   What would I know and see then?   You see, I like to think a lot and about things like that…. do you?

And if we are all the creators of our dreams, may the dream we choose be one of love, compassion, happiness, fulfillment,  and conscious expansion.
