happiness

Some yummy goodness

A new favourite from Food Impromptu

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?!

No Dams!

Hi darling.  I have been inspired to put pen to paper once again (or it’s electronic equivalent ) in an effort to make more obvious things that I believe and that I feel can also be of benefit to you.  

The reason that I think it is hard, frustrating, or whatever arises, when we get together with our families is because we live in patterns from our childhoods that we know are not loving so we never give up trying to get the love right.  

Unfortunately we don’t really have a plan about how we’re going to do that so we revert back to the same behaviours with the same results.  They get worse over time because the universe is also involved in the process and more and more intense situations will often yield a movement of some kind.  Not the best way to go about it but it is the usual way.  

Having expectations of someone else and even ourselves is also adding to the unlovingness of the situation but we all do that as well. 

Just so you know, I firmly believe it’s best dealt with by going with the emotion and express it until it’s conclusion and ultimately release it. You will travel often from rage or anger to grief and/or fear.  Direct it outwards but not at anyone… even if the cause of your angst is sitting right in front of you. (Of course you can mention the issue….  “you know mum,  you have never loved me “, etc. )

I have these things as well with my parents and siblings. Issue after issue keeps rearing it’s ugly head and I push it aside believing in my “soul” – otherwise I’d do it differently – that discussing it is only bringing up things that are better left buried.  The universe (to me that’s God) doesn’t think so, that’s why the same issues remain in my experience. 

Our dreams and sometimes sleepstate experiences can help us realise the issues that we are trying to bury. The problem is we can’t ever really bury them. Only kick a bit of dirt on them which tends to make them more agrivated the next time they come up. Sure,  we get better at our facade to hide them but that’s just the face of it…  not the guts. They will spew out or make this physical vessel not so well. 

You can try to keep a dream journal. (I  keep telling myself to do that as well.)

Do you see how our patterns can hold us back from our progression?

I see you working on your progression and I think you are very brave.  The problem ones are the early early childhood experiences and inherited emotions that you don’t have a developed memory of because of your age when they occurred and the fact that some may not be yours.  You’ve just built on them and you can’t even understand why or where they’ve come from. That’s why you can’t do this intellectually, it has to be emotionally. 

Listen to the messages from people around you…  There are clues everywhere.  If you think it’s a loving message… and I’m not talking about an addictive false-praising, manipulative or co-dependant message… then think more on it.  I also pray to God for guidance and ask my spirit friends and guides for assistance…  but that’s me. 

A loving message might be “you need to look after yourself “. A manipulative/co-dependent message might be “don’t listen to them,  you deserve a drink. ”

The first one seems like judgement, and the second one seems caring.  However, the first is simply a fact and the second doesn’t really help at all even though it would appear to be supportive. 

Anyway I’ll finish off there and know that I  appreciate your frankness and care that you show.  I see your humility shining through and feel that humility will be the thing that keeps you open to learning more and progressing in the most positive way. 

It pains me to know that our lives can impact yours greatly but I can only reiterate my sentiments again that no good can be achieved from upsetting yourself with things outside of your “control” (if I can use that word!) – outside of yourself. That doesn’t mean to push down the emotions when they come up but ask why they have come up at this time, in this situation.  Relate it back or at least just feel through it. Magic will happen. 

Life is ebbing and flowing as it always will and pushing against it is useless my dear. This is where being in situations in families can help to show where the blockages are to your flow. 

All my love that I am capable of today I send to you.  Xxx

Maneauver….manoeuvre??

Doesn’t matter how you spell it, you can’t do it in God’s Way of progressing.

[01:00:42.15] Mary: Isn’t it like in a lot of relationships – even father, daughter relationships; or partner relationships, we figure out how to maneauver around that person. ‘Aw, I’ll just tell dad this’, or ‘I’ll just stroke their ego this way, and then I’ll get what I want’. Yeah.

[01:00:58.23] A.J.: And many of us then come to think of God as the same thing; that we can maneauver around all God’s Laws. If my dad was a pretty hard guy and I could maneauver around him, then God’s a much easier guy, so I should be able to maneauver my way around him pretty easy. And it’s completely the opposite to that actually, God’s not a harsh person, but God has drawn the line in the sand; and that’s what law is; that’s what God’s Law is. And that’s what he’s basically saying here, we need to come to understand, actually, that there is the one way to get to God; and that’s the one law that God has stated is the only way to get to God; and there is no other way available to you; and you can try (laughs); you can try to get there without using the way, or the key that God has given you; and all you are is a thief and a robber, but you won’t be able to thieve or rob anything because even that’s not possible (laughs) on The Way.

So, I just feel if most people on earth understood that, then there would be far more less focus on their religious pursuits, and their individual scientific pursuits; and we’d start to see everything much more collectively, as there is this way – determined by nature, actually; and nature being of God’s creation means that it’s determined by God and God’s Laws as to how we need to grow. And if we refuse to grow in the way that God has designed, then we won’t grow; it’s as simple as that. We might have different experiences; we might move from side to side; it’s like, moving from one relationship to another relationship that’s identical is just a side-to-side shift. It’s not a real progression of the soul, nor is it a progression of your enjoyment or your happiness or any other state you might enjoy in your soul; and we need to start seeing it like that, as well. And we need to start seeing many of us are just going from experience to experience to experience; and really, repeating the same experiences over and over again, because we’re refusing true development of the soul. We’re refusing God’s Way.
