Mountains rise reaching to the sky but below the eye they touch the heart of our mother. Holding her flesh together like her bones.
The trees reach towards the sun, their roots travelling deep, far and wide, securing it’s magnificence to the surface. Like sinews holding everything in place.
The waters flow from the heavens, permeating deep go replenish under ground streams. Like the blood flowing through our veins.
Thunder booms in the sky while lighting hits the ground with a jolt so strong it can power a car. Like the force of the pump that beats our heart.
The wind blows from all directions, sometimes soft, sometimes hard. Blowing up tyres and sailing boats. Filling our lungs and bringing us life.
Oil comes up from the deepest parts and travels around our mother, clearing, lubricating. Like the blood within our veins.
The grass grows long, or short, dancing in the breeze, like a beacon for passers, absorbing the dew and offering shade. As our hair, connecting us to heaven and earth as a natural antenna and umbrella.
These are but a few of how we are all connected with nature, with each other.
As above so below, as without so within.
What we do to our planet we do to ourselves and vice versa.
Is your body your temple? Or Is the mountain? If you revere only one, then life is out of balance. For without one there is no other.
Take time to observe nature today and see how she is a reflection of you.
What can you change within yourself to change what you see out in the world?
Take action today, tomorrow is not guaranteed.
Throughout my life I have been told that I’m too kind, generous and selfless. Like it’s a bad thing. They say I should think about myself more and be less giving because people take advantage and don’t care about me or help me when they can.
Now this may be true, but, that just shows who they are as people, and is not a reflection on me.
I just give people enough rope to hang themselves with then walk away.
If I have helped someone regardless of how they disrespect or disregard me, my heart is full knowing I did all I could with what I had to work with.
From what I can see in the world today, too many people only help if there is something in it for themselves. They become hardened by all the ungrateful, disrespect from their efforts to lead by example. Or simply are out for all they can get.
How then is the world meant to change? Or as I hear and say all too often, ‘go back to how it used to be’?
We must not become bitter at the unrecognition, the rejection, the disrespect, the lies and false promises. Nor succumb to the feelings of isolation that these people ignite within us.
We must recognize the gift they bring, the awareness of your own inner strength that in spite of others ignorance you have the ability to forgive the wounded child in front of you and love them anyway.
We the way showers may have chosen a difficult path but we must continue to hold the lantern up in the dark, so that others of like mind can find us. If we succumb to the darkness of our ego self then we will be lost forever in the sea of lost souls.
The Truth Will Set You Free!
‘What a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive.’
Where to start?
I moved to Cyprus in May to start a better life, 6 months in and it turns out to be my biggest mistake. 😦
Too much has gone on but in a nutshell. Loui didn’t fare well with the flight, he was traumatised by it and it took him nearly two months to get over it., we had a heatwave not seen in 30yrs that killed two people. My feet and legs swelled for two months and I couldn’t walk. I witnessed a man burn in a house fire, he died a week later. Finding part time work here is impossible. I started fostering kittens for a charity in July and that’s been a journey in itself. Will try blog about that another time. I’ve been ripped off several times and my family have not bothered to visit me at all.
Then the final straw was when my Loui got run over and has ended up paralysed. 😢
You can read the details here and there is a link at the bottom on there to a FB page for him where I update on his progress.
You might be wondering how in all of this can u find anything to be grateful for?
I have met some amazing people along the way, without them, I could have never got through any of it.
The outpouring of help and support with Loui has been astounding. My friends in the UK have all contributed to Louis vet bills and check up on me most days to see how I am coping. People who I’ve only known as a name on FB have been so supportive too, not just financially but more importantly (to me) with their prayers, positive words, advice and love.
To say I’m grateful doesn’t even cover it. Since being here I’ve been thrust into a deeper solitude than I had in UK because here I don’t have the beautiful countryside around me where we went daily to connect with nature and my many spirit allies there.
When you feel all alone and all these wonderful souls reach out to you, you realise that when you hit rock bottom there are people out there to break your fall.
That there are still genuinely caring people left on the world. It gives me hope, not just for me and my situation but for the human race as a whole.
Now my dilemma is do I stay or do I go?
Once Loui is healed I will decide but for now I’m just trying to get by each day as it comes.
Please hold us in your thoughts and hold the vision of Loui walking and healthy again.
Thank you. ❤
