I’ll talk to ya one day soon :)

Hi everyone. Kurt is our leader in mental illness at this time – going through the system offered to us. We can all assist him by looking at our own emotional issues – bringing them forward and acknowledging them; and desiring healing – change the attractions around us all.

I ask you to see his greatness and have appreciation for his courage; and not focus on any desperation in his situation. Where we put out attention we manifest –  when we get lost in it Think back and you will see the truth in that.
It’s more than positive affirmations – that’s a band aid. I’m talking the healing of allowing, acknowledging and releasing – requires repentance and forgiving. Repentance for things we have done from our injuries and forgiving those that have contributed to those injuries. Some of the repentance would be considered loving to the human brain but is often the pushing against of situations that remind you of the childhood you; and not allowing them to be present in your family’s lives. It’s still there, you’ve just decided to push against – it pushes back and projects out – like the carrier of a virus – until you finally decide to do the work.
Anyway, I’ve said more than I wished to already. I just wanted to address the situation and reach out for the help we all need at this time…. and yet there’s more!

FORGIVE

Forgive from your heart
Let It heal your life
Nothing can hold you
Like a fair bit of strife

The hardest to get through
Are the things that We do
Known only by us
Yet they can still puss

They fester and grow
And live on all the while
With each new day.
It gets harder to smile

Your greatness is here now
Lets show them all how
When love is involved
Much can be solved

The love that you are
Lays buried deep inside
Just waiting for the hate to subside

Loved ones cannot help you
Only you can mend
All the hurt and despair that you still defend

Your spirit is calling
For you to be free
Forgiveness is golden
And I’m sure you’ll agree
There is nothing nicer
That you’d like to be

So forgive and move on now
And then you will see
All the good things that life brings
Known to more than just me

Love, cuppa and Lentil Pie

Darling, I thank you for your continued tutelage as you give me the opportunity to grow in my spirit through conversation and experimentation with thoughts, values and my responses, energetically, to those. We shared a lot of that yesterday afternoon in one of our favourite spots.

When we began I was trepidatious – not wanting to enter the arena of perceived judgement and vulnerability. We’ve been there way too many times and I had decided that I was out – I needed to find a new direction where I could grow my ideas and values without offending loved ones or disappointing myself with the suppression of my spirit; and to allow continued, barely disguised, facades to stay in place – enabling our unit to continue without real challenge and thereby without growth.

I have to say that I am a pleaser; an organiser; someone who values family above all other – or I was. I will now be the pleased; I will organise according to God’s Laws; and family now are those who choose to be in alignment with those values. I am prepared to let-go my stranglehold on all that I once found sacred.

To be honestly honest, a lot of my continued involvement came from a place of not getting it right – not leading and loving the way I know, in my heart of hearts, it should have been. I’m still not there, but I can’t get there from a stuck place and surrounding myself with the same deterrents that I have always allowed to invade my unconscious self. Soothing and attempting to control my fate.

It’s all in God’s hands and the more I interfere, the longer it will take. It’s not making me happy and the evidence that it is not serving the purpose I have been working towards is obvious.

Our conversation took us to many places and I have realised that I am prepared to let go of a lot of my opinions – especially as they pertain to others, which, in the end, do not mean a lot for my life – they’re just opinions and opinions change.

I am more interested in working towards developing my resonance with knowledge – tapping into the steady flow of consciousness generously provided by God to all of his children. The conversations can happen still, but, in so much as, they will be learning tools to indicate to me areas that I need to work on for the benefit of my soul and how it reflects on all other things in God’s Universe.

I don’t believe that this information will please you greatly, and I will be, no doubt, thought of as someone going through a crisis – and you would be right. A crisis of the soul. I know that this determination will ultimately lead to much better results than the previous, not working at all, one did.

I look forward to sharing one of those Lentil Curry Pies with you very soon.

All my love. Mum.

Let God In

In the darkest of our hours
In the ever changing light
Let God’s Love embrace you
Let His guidance be your sight

Among all the struggling souls
On this world and the next
Let God’s Grace restore you
From all things hexed

There is within our being
A light that shines forlorn
Waiting for the wisdom within us
To be nurtured and reborn

In every ounce of trouble
There’s a clue to who we are
Leading onto greatness
That’s so near and yet so far

I invite the ever present
I invite the yet unclear
I invite the many masters
To stay close and to be near

Let’s kick this evolution
That we all can feel is naught
Not conducive to the outcome
For which we have been taught

It’s just a fleeting moment
It’s coming to that place
Where we can all delight
In all things that we face

Face off bad emotions
Kick them firmly out the door
Don’t let them keep us bounded
To things we want no more

Let us prepare the welcome;
Realise our sin;
Put a smile upon our dial;
And Let God In!

ON ANY SUNDAY

Families converge
Yards get a serge
Driving and walking
Talking, consorting

Life seems simpler
Easier
Calm

Delight in this time
Be good and relate
With acceptance and love
All the things that are great

Today is the only day of your life
No before
or after
can deter your laughter

Seek only to know now
What happiness is
For life on a Sunday
Is really a fun-day!

LIFE

Life’s an experience
I’m sure that you know
But how do we continue to grow?

By living a life
So live it right now
Not tomorrow or Wednesday
Right now that is how

How to be free from the concerns that we show?
They really really really must go

They ground us and hold us
From greater pursuits
They even can have us all dressed up in suits!

Suits to suit others
Not ours at all
When will we ever remember the call

The call to our greatness
That’s really all

This time like no-other
Can help you relate
To having a go at the things that can’t date

Like laughing and crying
And smiling too
These are worthwhile things to pursue

Take a look at a child
And then you will know
This is the very thing we should sow

Sow in some fun
Some happiness and love
Mix it all in
And don’t use a glove!

Get down and get dirty
From this day till the next
Then maybe we won’t be so perplexed

“A Dog’s Purpose”

Remember, if a dog was the teacher you would learn things like:

  • When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.
  • Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride.
  • Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure ecstasy..
  • Take naps.
  • Stretch before rising.
  • Run, romp, and play daily.
  • Thrive on attention and let people touch you.
  • Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.
  • On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the grass.
  • On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree.
  • When you’re happy, dance around and wag your entire body.
  • Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.
  • Be loyal.
  • Never pretend to be something you’re not.
  • If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.
  • When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by, and nuzzle them gently

WITH BUGS IN MY EYES

Please will you tell me
The man did persue
The answer to this very perplexing a-do

Why does a dog
Continue to drive
With its head out the window
And get bugs in its eyes

The answer is simple
And I’ll relate it to you
Thank you for asking
Now this is my view

When a spirit arrives
And comes fully alive
The very experience is worth all of that jive

Exhileration
Excitement
Anticipation and more.

No matter the issues, the problems or size
I’m sure you agree with my whys
What are a few
Bugs in the eyes?!
