what lays within…

depression, anxiety and a host of unwelcome feelings are all unpredictable.

one minute you’re on cruise control just flowing along ..then boom! something triggers something and you feel as though you’ve walked into a maze of haze.

it’s enveloping, heavy, even impedes your movements. definitely a debilitating feeling…affecting your emotional , mental and even physical being.

sometimes when this happens it’s good to just be still…inhale slowly and exhale even slower.

all that we have been seeking outside of ourselves…stability, calmness, peace of mind, understanding, love, balance , truth .. we look for answers through books, philosophical views , listening to others, and trying to refocus…ALL of these things and much more could really help us.

maybe before frustratingly searching for the answer to our ‘whys’ maybe we can pause , listen and try to connect with our inner being.

yes, go within.

often its not what or who we surround ourselves with, its actually what lays deep inside our soul.

seeking ourselves within ourselves  its a great start.

try to ‘go within’…’feel’ and ‘trust’.

approach things from a different perspective.

this is not a solution to our disease…but it could be that trestle preparing us for whatever comes next.

have you ever heard others say ‘if you can focus on another or another issue it lessens what you may or may not be going through’?
i guess its suppose to redirect your thoughts and emotions…it provides you with ‘something other than yourself’ to ‘deal’ with.
i often find that i can go through the motions…( hmmmn , no that implies that i’m not sincere in my efforts. okay, lets say i do give of myself in a major way…and it feels good…but in the still of the night ..when i am all alone and that blanket of emptiness covers me..i realize not much has changed.
some days it really feels as though it has…it’s like i’ve been on a mission but i always return back to ‘that place’.

starting all over again…but not really…
do we ever really begin all over or is it just a continuation of
where we left off…in a connected or non-connected way?
how about i’m just turning the page in a book with several very long
unwritten chapters.

Thanksgiving Prayer

Blessed God, Great Spirit
Your Breath fills all creation.
It fills this country, making sacred
the land, the water, the sky.
It fills each of us,
making us all Your children,
sisters and brothers of many roots and colors
who happily call ourselves “Americans”.

We give thanks to You today for Your many gifts to us,
Your beauty and depth are mirrored to us
in the many faiths and cultures
that enrich us as a people.
Help us to reverence our diversity
as an expression of Your Divine Creativity.

We are a people with many names.
We thank you especially
for the names that have shaped us as Americans:
Washington, Lincoln, King –
Harriet Tubman, Susan B. Anthony, Sojourner Truth-
Geronimo, Joseph of the Nez Perce, Sacajawea.

We thank You for those whose names
have blended into silence of history;
for the Native American who held this land
as a sacred trust;
for pilgrim, pioneer and patriot,
for suffragette, soldier and saint…
for those in our own families
who first came – full of hope – to these shores,
and for the searching immigrants who come here now
to find the dream of peace.

We have many hopes and fears, dear God,
as a nation, as individuals, and as world citizens.
On this Thanksgiving Day, move us to bless and
reverence one another as sisters and brothers
and to renew ourselves in the grace
of respect, justice and mercy.
Amen

Author unknown…this is beautiful. No matter what your religious beliefs are I’m sure something in these words resonates with you…
Happy Thanksgiving!!!

just because one says their love is unconditional does not make it true…

if the both of you want different things…there is always compromise…with explanation comes understanding..( regarding issues from dinner selections color of paint , sex, and everything in between.

even though one says i’m not into games…maybe they are only referring to the basic ones…not those created by the psyche.

don’t overly love, at least not verbalize it…some dont see it for what it truly is and may totally see it as weakness..

be careful once they know how understanding you are…how trusting you are…if they know where your heart is…provocations may appear…

know when to mete out stories of love, pain and other things from your past..it could be used against you…

if they know your mindset and intentionally hurt you…know they are not the one for you..

when one door closes and two open…maybe you should think about climbing through the window..

of course…ALWAYS remember communication is key…

ok…this sounds like a jaded post…and it is..

love ..true love is a wonderful thing!!!
