time difference

I am pretty sure my washing machine is on a different time/space continuum. It has a big glowing green 1 in the time window....but i have been sitting here for almost 14 minutes...waiting for it to say "clothes clean". or maybe it thinks it's funny to keep spinning away (probably chuckling to itself) while i wait...and wait...and wait...or... aliens do exist and they are experimenting on us humans and they messed with the time on our washers to watch our reactions....and i am almost positive they stole half my socks...or....there are sadistic little gremlins living in my washer and they delight in watching my level of frustration rise as i wait for my clothes to be long is a minute...apparently waaaaay more than 60 seconds!!!!

together we are what we cant be alone

one person standing strong can make a small ripple....which gradually gathers power and momentum as it touches others....

many people standing strong make a tidal wave of change.

why is it so hard for people to put aside their differences and stand together for the greater good? if we have the same goals, why do we let our differing belief systems become a wall between us?

just imagine what could be accomplished if we could learn tolerance and cooperation on a global level.....

Shake dreams from your hair
My pretty child, my sweet one.
Choose the day and choose the sign of your day
The day's divinity
First thing you see.
Choose they croon the Ancient Ones
The time has come again
Choose now, they croon
Beneath the moon
Beside an ancient lake
Enter again the sweet forest
Enter the hot dream
Come with us
Everything is broken up and dances.
Ooh great creator of being 
Grant us one more hour, 
To perform our art 
And perfect our lives. 

(jim morrison. from "the ghost song") 

so quiet and peaceful this am. taking a deep breath of solitude , enjoying the still joy of early morning. ruminating on last nights dreams. the muses were dancing delightful dropping diamond ideas and pearls of wisdom while i slumbered. now where to begin birthing these creations to reality....pulling thoughts from the ether transforming to beauty you hold in your hand ...i am an alchemist creatrix .

When you're on the right path the universe makes it easy...manifesting all the things you need to follow your dreams. kismet, coincidence, whatever you name it..things just flow together into a complete whole. I am creating the life I want, slowly each day taking steps to bring my dreams closer to real. It's sweet serendipity and my soul is dancing with delight. I thank Goddess/God for the love in my heart, the creativity in my brain, and the talent in my hands. I will not waste those gifts. the force is strong in this one :) moving forward with momentum . I am not waiting for opportunity to come knocking. I am creating my own opportunities.

so , upon deeper contemplation of the wizard of oz i have come to the conclusion that the wicked witch of the west got the short end of the stick....some out of town floozy drops a house on her sister and kills her, then makes off with her inheritance(the ruby slippers) and bad mouths her all over her hometown...I for one think the witch had every right to be upset ...and i think dorothy should be arrested for 2 counts of murder and theft of property...all we really have is the munchkins word that the witches were evil..and who knows what their political agenda is...just some food for thought.. sometimes it's good to put yourself in someone else's shoes and take a look at the world through their might be surprised....

Everyone is jumping on the bandwagon for a "no gas day" ....are they even thinking about this. yes we are all angry with big corporations like the oil companies .. but one day of not buying gas is not even going to blip on their radar.. boycotts take months to have any effect.  and it's not just gas that oil is used for... plastic is petroleum based, so are most laundry and dish detergents.. so many things we buy every day somehow tied into oil. you want to make a difference , change your habits.  drive less, walk/bike more. carpool . use public transportation if possible.  plan all your errands for one area on the same day. when planning vacations or activities factor in driving distance. buy plant based cleaning products/detergents ( seventh generation/method) reduce your energy consumption. stop buying plastic bottled water, switch to a reusable water bottle ( Sigg/Kleen Kanteen) when purchasing a new vehicle go for a hybrid or fuel efficient model. turn down your heat by 2 or 3 degrees.  if we all think about our energy use and consumption habits and make small changes that will reduce the amount of oil needed/used and reduce our carbon footprint. We all bear some responsibility for the way things are . reduce/reuse/ responsible and make earth friendly choices everyday.

 you can't go backwards in life, but you can always move forward from where you are. age truly does bring wisdom and insight to a heart that is open to receive. perspective .... looking at old hurts with new eyes...can bring understanding and healing.

Sunday, March 6, 2011

well, it has been almost a year since "the great betrayal" , and looking back through the emotional black cloud I reflect on my journey over the last 365 days. I am not the same woman I was a year ago.  I have come to realize that life is about choices, and everyday when I wake up I have a choice to be happy, to keep an unquenchable light in my soul steady and strong. no matter what the day brings I am an island of peace( and some days it actually works) . Thank you Goddess for the opportunities to become stronger, to learn,  for my soul to progress. growth / change is never easy or pain free , but it is necessary. I alone have the power to make my life great. I have a deeper understanding of  tolerance, patience, and i am working toward forgiveness. not for them.. for myself, because i don't like the way angrybittervengeful feels in my soul.  I am still struggling with trust, one has to be willing to row a boat across an ocean  to get to my heart as all the bridges have been demolished by monsters....time may yet heal that too. I am a work in progress, focusing on each moment as it comes, enjoying the simple things and making them memorable. I still have the occasional slip into self pity, and there are still moments when i want to cry for what was lost, and yes there is still that small pocket of raging anger, but this too shall pass. sewing has kept me sane, channeling all that negative maelstrom energy into a positive creative force has been cathartic. getting lost in my art is a safe place feel , to let loose those energies, to find my center, my balance, my focus.and come back to the world refreshed and renewed.  recently the bad penny has resurfaced in surprising areas of my life. I am not sure how I feel about that. but i suppose at some point our paths would have to cross again , we do live in the same town. I choose to walk on higher ground. Karma is . and i am manifesting good things in my life . where i go from here is up to me. I am living my inner truth, helping others when i can, and trying to stay focused on all the positive things in my life.

early morning thoughts

People demand freedom of speech as a compensation for the freedom of thought which they seldom use.
  - Soren Kierkegaard

So true.. our society as a whole is a group of lemmings. hey lets all run off the end of a cliff....and the sad part is the few of us who see the cliff and stop running, we are the crazy ones.  everyone spouts rhetoric blindly repeating comfort words they have no concept of reality. believing the half truths being hand fed to them from people in power. automatic voting machines for the regime. sleep walking through their lives..somebody cut the strings.. wake them up...before the destruction is so profound humanity is extinct.

Oh! what a day!! started out spilling water on my pants just before work..and ended bathing my oldest husky because she had tummy troubles in her kennel....but  found some smiles in between. and made a yummy vegetarian black bean tortilla bake. and had some amazing tea...overall life is good.
