Distracted by Kindness: Choosing Positivity Amidst Struggle

Distracted by Kindness: Choosing Positivity Amidst Struggle

Choosing Kindness and Compassion in Tumultuous Times

Days of Autumn quickly pass by, and the nip of the holidays of thanks and cheers is in the air. Busy schedules and time seemingly flying by, or is it just life?  The world of changes is changing fast and not so much what I wish to see. Wars and anger… or time for us all to stand up for what we do want. What we believe in, like Free speech, respect, kindness, and understanding our uniqueness, adds to this incredible world. We are all equal in the grand scheme of things. Here to learn those very things. I am not sure why it is so difficult to learn this lesson.

Each person we meet is a reflection of us. So why not heal that part of us so wounded deep instead of harming the other? That is what the season of Scorpio is about—the time of healing, mending, and waking up to the beauty and grace within us and giving thanks for that healing, mending, and waking up. For the people who helped us along the way. Stress is resisting, and if you resist it, it will persist. Breathe deeply and shake it all off, dear people.

And with saying that, this sidenote: Thank you, Taylor Swift, for your incredible talent and for distracting the world with your brilliance, kindness, beauty, and Grace. You show that women can do it and do it beautifully—blessings to you and yours. I appreciate you for all you be and do.

Most days, I say or write what I am grateful for. Each breath, for good health, physically and mentally, the kindness in my life, friends, and family, and the good, the bad, and the ugly, I created in some way in my life for the lessons. Accept and allow. Thank you.

It is funny to me, though it is who and what I love, to learn, to be curious, and to ask questions with my observation. I am taking classes in tech at the age of 60 and don’t see myself stopping this learning.  It is like retiring; I don’t see myself doing that…just another adventure. Why get re-tired? Does that make sense?

Through this reflection of self and seeing the world in this state, I wonder why I am here at this amazing time. What do I reflect on this Earth? Ask yourself where you are still angry, upset, or wounded. Forgive yourself and those around you on this week of thanks. Life is more than the great sales on Black Friday or even before. It is more than the shopping. It is that kindness, beauty, and Grace. Be it, share it, and thank you for reading my moment of observation and rambling.

We can empower each other or take aim to destroy. The choice is ours and with the deep energy and healing potential of Scorpio, it is time to breathe, regroup and allow the shock and dismay of the current currents of energies to wash over us.

Breathe, smile and be grateful.

I felt the collective shock, anger, and disbelief of the recent events in the US and reacted out of it for a few. I had allowed that overwhelm to take over until I realized what I was doing.

Change needs to happen and all is in divine order.  In the US and the world, the deep wounding had taken place where the forgotten, the erased, the unseen spoke out loud and were heard as they needed to be.

Breathe, smile and be grateful.

The angry, the displaced and the monsters came out. The people who seemed invisible to them came out of the hidden place and acted out. Perhaps in cruel, nasty and ugly ways, they needed to act out to be seen.

Breathe, smile and be grateful.

This humanity on this planet now is not flawless. We each played our parts in the dramas of these days of change. We all knew within our hearts and depths of being, this was going to happen… this space of change, revolution, and evolution.  We are growing up and out and uniting in forms uncertain and unknown physically…we are acting out of fear, strength and gaining a sense of self.  The fear is the illusion that needs to break apart, die and be reimagined into the truth.

Breathe, smile and be grateful.

This year has shown me a life review of sorts. Having dreams upon dreams of what I have experienced… on this realm of reality and other dimensions collapsing into the centeredness of truth for me. Seeing what is the possible for me and the fall creating this current space. I know I deserve the best and have so much to offer, yet stay in the stillness a little longer to breathe. I step from this, putting my toes into the waves of possibilities again.  Slowly, I have relived my created miseries and lessons, learning the ways to be smarter, truer and lighter in my response to my creation and experiences to this life. As I become the witness as well as the actor in the worldly dance with humanity, releasing the shadows with acceptance.

Breathe, smile and be grateful.

The rebellion spirit has learned the ways of magic, embracing the inner powers and senses of self-available and yearning to live… Now is the time of expression the beauty, grace and voice whispering inside you.  Caress the truth and allow the aspects of you to live, yet with the understanding of the impact on others. Remember your common sense of compassion, honesty, and acceptance. Remember that other is a reflection of you in some form, being a person, animal, or plant. Kindness being more out into this mad world of change, so together we can be that change in reflecting the goodness of humanity. We all have had enough of this shadow’s released. Let compassion, kindness, and love be your guidance in the days ahead.  Stay in tune to the moment you are living and embrace each one with breath, a smile and gratitude.

Be true to you. You are the beauty, grace, and truth of what humanity is now becoming in this great time of change. Let’s be the change of betterment. The best of you expressed is the best within you and you will receive the best in return.

Breathe, smile and be grateful.

 

Grateful for Gratitude

Grateful for Gratitude

woman writingGrateful for learning
to see the puzzle pieces
of my life, the missing links,
and connections with others.
the mirrors and amusement
of divine guidance with joy.

Grateful for the inner voice
persistence with my resistance
understanding my willingness
to begin again… and truly listen.
Through the consistent
reminders and signs

I am growing as I am changing
through the transitions
new truths and perceptions
are surfacing
with the wisdom innately
knowing the course
as I trust
through breathing, relaxing
and continuing to listen.

Sit still and the waiting
of the muse amusing me.
Or do I amuse the muse?
Delights in the devotion
of releasing the doubts and denial.
living once again
in the wholeness of the being.

Drops of Brilliance

Drops of Brilliance

dROPS OF bRILLIANCE

 

Drops of brilliance rain down on me
caressing my heart and lifting my spirits
gratitude dancing within me
rejoicing in the abundance of all that I need
love opens my heart in gladness
Balancing the worlds between
by accepting and allowing the moment to just be.   ~jh

Sun streams, Shadows and Silence

Sun streams, Shadows and Silence

intro Sunstreams

 

Sun streams through the window

Dancing with the shadows on the wall

Cat curled up and asleep on the bed not far behind me.

On this powerful and magically day
like all days within this dreams

I write with gratitude
noticing the sunbeams, shadows and silence

embracing this moment
deep breath and smiling
stopping the scattering of thoughts
focusing on my blessings

On dreams unfolding
on visions in dreams
on knowing the impermanence

Of this dreams within dreams

Giving thanks for the forgiving
on choices and actions taken
listening to that inner voice and child
relaxing and dancing in song

seeing the path chosen
the weaving and twisted turns along the way

The magic collected
with wisdom

Of being the woman

I AM

Love of music
diving into the mysteries within
seeing the veiling between me and truth
clear, thinning and disappearing

Like notes in a song

Like memories in the wind
like whispers in the moonlight
the universe is always presence
like the heartbeat and breath

I have learned lessons well

and words on the page
connect me and release me

At the same time

Blessings surround me

Like that sunshine, shadows and silence’s secrets. ~jh
