I AM APPRECIATIVE

I am appreciative

Of My Life

This morning, I woke up and opened my eyes yet again for another day.   I got out of bed, let my feet hit the floor, and without any assistance stood on my own two feet.  Without any conscious thought, I breathed in and out.   Into the bathroom I walked and there in the mirror I was introduced to my face, my body, my thoughts, my feelings, my circumstances, and my situations, and instead of looking away, I was able to smile embracing that this is the life of my dreams now.

Of My Love

Today, and each every day, is opportunity of infinite proportions to choose each and every thought, every word, every action, and I am fully responsible for my behavior.    Love is the light within that I choose to radiate allowing myself to become one with myself and the world around me.   Love not only of others, but of self,  of life, and love of living today embraced fully in the moment that is now.

Of My State

There may be circumstances and situations, there has been, and there will be, that will cause me to pause and to peer into the pond and to see myself in my own reflection.   My focus can either be on the problem(s) or the solution(s), but it is up to me to be fully accountable for my current state of being.    It is mine to choose to love myself as whole, to embrace the love that I am as enough, and while each and every day I get better and better, my life it is amazing and beautiful right now.

There is always something to be thankful for. (1)

Release In Peace

Woke up from a dream

Although not last night

But, yet in the darkness

And, not the light

In the longest of hours

Therein gleamed much insight

Expansion and opportunity

Not to struggle and fight

Rather to be at peace

Shifting from hapless plight

Oppression and chains

To powerful and ultimate might

The distinction between

Is the ultimate foresight

Not blind by I, we, and they

  Nor black and white

Fake and real (what and who)

Neither wrong or right

But to look beyond reality

That there is no copyright

The voice free to express

Or silent as the torchlight

Eternal is its flame

That burns so bright

The Shadow of the Light

Good and bad: the foundation of division, the pillar of fear in a constant state of arousal.  One is not without the other, both mere illusions.   A matter of perception upon limited reflection, they are but us, and we are they.   At the dawn of every day the sun rises without compromise.   When engulfed in the light, shadows disappear.  It is not an absence, or lack of, but rather a place in this space.

It is within the darkness, as the shadow appears, there is added insight.  When the shadow is gazed upon, it is but a person (or animal, a tree, or whatever it may be).   Based upon the reflection and outline there may not be male or female, but certainly it is void of race or nationality, religion, or political affiliation.   The shadow is the core of being reality amidst the delusion.

Whatever the differences, no matter how great the divide, to find common ground, to break bread and find that there is more alike than different is to have a foundation to build upon and a pillar of strength.  Compassion and kindness are building blocks, love and respect the mortar.

There too may be anger and hate, but every body has a shadow reflecting that too.  When losing sight of one’s own shadow is to neglect both the dark of night and light of day.   The sun and the moon, both have their place.   Each holds space.

Walking out of the shadow and into the light a form appears who may be seen as male or female, questions of their race and nationality, of religion, and political affiliation.   No matter though where they came from, what their ideology, or what they look like they breathe the same air and walk the same Earth.    From beginning of time until the end this will hold true.

Living does not commence at birth.  It begins today.  What happened yesterday cannot be undone.  Life is merely this moment, and the moment is but a shadow.  Neither good nor bad, but simply is.
