Sunday Morning Quiet

Sun barely awake as it winks its’ eyes to the mountaintops.

Trees still dark reflecting last nights’ moon. 

Clouds dispersing as the first signs of pink are in the air.

Deer drinking at mornings flowing stream 

as others lazily chomp at flowering berries.

A dog barks  ~ the roosters crow ~ a light flickers here and there.

All parts of morning …..

especially a quiet Sunday morn.

TRUTH

It awakens the breath

as the sun barely touches the morning dew.

It arrives as the chitter-chatter of the birds

begin to welcome the dawn.

And as leaves on the trees

turn a majestic green.

It comes on the rays of the sun

as they caress the mountain tops

sending cascades of love

into the valleys below.

Fish swim among the river rocks

knowing day has begun.

The world stirs with yawns and smiles…

for the Truth is once more

awoken in your heart.

Stones of YesterYear

Watching the stream caress the stones below,

my mind wanders to the yesteryears of my memories.

Ears perk up to the songs of old,

dances of those who came before us.

Water gurgles, sand moves as if to show us

the movement of time.

However slow, a stone moves an inch a month

but movement prevails.

The stones remember; the water sings

but do our ears truly hear

the mysteries of the songs of those who danced before us?

Do we hear their wisdom?

Do we walk in their footsteps?

Or do we ignore the wisdom of the wise ones

and listen only to the chatter in our own heads?

Morning Blessings

Sun glistens on green below

wet still from last nights’ rain.

Birds tweet their morning songs

as crickets began to quiet their nighttime wings.

Dogs barking, roosters crowing,

farmers driving their tractors down the road.

Sounds of morning awakening the day

calling to our souls, blessing our essence.

Did you hear it?  Did you sense it?

Did you even stop to listen?

Thoughts or Feelings?

I always hear,”Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life.”  But is it that simple? Yes and No.   While it is true that anything you think is in the NOW, and the NOW does create the future.  Eckhart Tolle showed the power of NOW in his book, “The Power of Now”.   I am not here to dispute how powerful each moment is in your life, because I truly believe and know that what you think at this moment will affect the next moment and the next, and the next:  the snowball effect.  I am here to ask, where does that thought come from?  Why do you have the thoughts that you have.    Quickly the answer is:  from childhood, from society, from culture, your up-bringing, etc..   but ultimately….   your thoughts come from feelings.   So the questions for today are:  Why do you have the feelings that you do?  And Where do they come from?

I’ll be back soon to see your answers and further discuss this.  If you want to discuss this individually, email me at ariel2424@msn.com and put FEELINGS in the subject matter.

HAVE A GREAT DAY!

How do you define Quiet Time?

Some weeks I think about blogging several times a day, but I find that I either have too much to say or not enough.   The reality is that the busier my life becomes, the more quiet time (QT) that I need. Some people call this their meditation time and I do believe that it is essential to start and end your day with some type of meditation, or quiet time.  I also find it essential that if one is not going to get caught up in their own “stuff”, that this slowing down is critical.  If we just stop and LISTEN, we can become so wise quickly and answers to challenges fall into place.

There are many ways to meditate or have QT, and in my opinion, the right way is the way that works for you!  That is simply that.  However, I do find certain components can be beneficial. Do you include the following?

– Compassion for everyone and everything?  –

– Gratitude for all that you do have in your life?

– Forgiveness to and from others?

– Requests/Prayers to the Universe (remember like attracts like)?

– Creative Visualization (you need to let the Universe know HOW you would like things to      be and then allow the Universe to figure out the journey for you).

– Blessing all in the world (I bless my car all the time, my mailbox, pets and people and more).

To me, these are just some of the essentials.  Then when I have a specific question or challenge, I take that to my QT and ask the Universe to help me answer that as well knowing that I am part of the Universe and that all energy works together ultimately.  I appreciate all in my life, love my life and keep serving all I can, for I am a child of Creation. Nothing religious here, just part of the energetic cosmos.

At night, I also go within and check out my day:  the things I could have done better, the people I need to forgive and ask forgiveness from, and to ask for a good rest.

So, sometimes my absence is merely me taking more QT in my life.  Hope you are all well.  I did add a quick life coach session in my Etsy shop if you need something inexpensive ($5) and fast!  Click here.
