I am, Not

Resentful, I am not
For that which I have lost
For I am so incredibly thankful
For all that I have gained
Sad, I am not
For those which are now gone
For I am so absolutely grateful
For those memories I have engrained
Hurt, I am not
For those myriad of falls I have taken
For I am now so much stronger
For every time I got myself back up
Devastated, I am not
For the multitude of failures
For I am that much better
For the lessons learned
Bitter, I am not
For being let down
For I am so at peace
For I forgive myself, and others
Crippled, I am not
For the crushing blows I have endured
For it has toughened me
Forever more
Hateful, I am not
For I am engulfed in love
Loving myself, and my world
For love changes everything

I See The Light, By Cathy Roberts

I see the light …….
the light in you ……..   …….
that reflects back to me ……..   
……….. the true you that I didn’t see!!!  
 
Forgiveness for thoughtlessness
…….. days of uncertainty cloud my perception
…… changing the reality I should see!!!
 
The door is open through the mind …….
at the point of seeing ……..  .
…….. what my heart couldn’t see!!!
 
Forgive me if I ever hurt you with my words …….
never my intention to make you small ……..
you’ve been a great teacher through it all!!
 
Your heart is big ……..
your light is great ……..  
………. you shine so brightly
…….. even in your darkest flight!!  
 
Love you ……
for all that you are ……..  
……. a diamond in what can be
“the roughness of life”

Stairway to Heaven?

2014-09-16 07.00.32 (2)

What does the picture invoke?  A stairway into the heavens?   A beautiful shadow leading upwards into eternally?

In reality, everything is as it appears although reality may be much more than what it seems.   This photo above I took this morning while gazing up into the early morning sky.  There is something majestic about the new day and the sunrise.

Truth be told though, this was not what I saw when gazing upwards.   No. In actuality, the real picture is below and captures what I really saw.   All I did was simply turn the picture upside down, and instantly I saw a completely different photograph all together.  As I did this I understood the analogy that was present before me.

Life has its challenges, its beautiful moments, its triumphs, and its heart breaks.  Every day there is a myriad of events, circumstances, people, and things that encompass all of these.  Moments within each day can seem so dark that we do even notice how bright and wonderful the world around us is, because ours is so consuming.    It is though a matter of simply looking at something from a different perspective that can make all the difference.

That stairway?  That heaven?  How beautiful a reflection it is of life’s wondrous journey right here right now.

See the beauty in the moment

Wonder in the day

Grace in the second

Heaven in the sky

Sky in the heavens

No matter where you are

Or whatever your struggles

Lose not sight that there is

Even if not in this moment

Wonder in the day

Grace in the second

Heaven in the sky

And sky in the heavens

Whatever that means

To you

Is it? It is.

“Whatever you believe, is”  ~ Bryan Hayes

It is as simple as that.  Whatever you believe, is (your reality).  Whether it be religion, politics, or life in general.   Each of us sees the world differently through our own periscope, if you will, and that is our reality.   It is a unique experience to each individual.

Some may look at the picture, and see a flower while others may see something quite different just as one person may see darkness while another sees light, one sees beauty while another sees it not.  Therein lies the majestic wonder of the world in that we all experience it through our own eyes, thoughts, emotions, and at the same time we are interconnected like never more.  The collective consciousness and that we are more alike than we are different.

(just something to chew on…….thank you for reading.  Enjoy your day.  And, where ever you are in the world – both figuratively and literally, hope that yours is a beautiful one for you and yours)
