Letting go part 167...lol

Thursday, April 30, 2009

If anyone speaks ill of you,

Praise them always.

If anyone injures you,

Serve them nicely.

If anyone persecutes you,

Help them in all possible ways.

You will attain immense strength.

You will control anger and pride.

You will enjoy peace, poise, and serenity.

It’s All I Have to Bring Today

Wednesday, April 29, 2009

To my sweet husband, and best friend. Happy 18 years of marriage. I love you!




It's all I have to bring today--
This, and my heart beside--
This, and my heart, and all the fields--
And all the meadows wide--
Be sure you count--should I forget
Some one the sum could tell--
This, and my heart, and all the Bees
Which in the Clover dwell.

Emily Dickinson


I love you Rick... forever
Kimmy

Clarity is always an option

Tuesday, April 28, 2009

Clarity is always an option. We can come to understanding.

It is basically a matter of going into the silence where everything resolves.

The mind comes to understanding if given the freedom and the time.

Sometimes understanding is simply having the willingness and patience to wait for a process to complete itself.

By stopping the conscious effort to understand, letting go of everything, we release the natural energy of the psyche, the soul, the divine guide within.

Clarity can be the willingness to let go of ideas and concepts that we have allowed to block our vision.

The cloud dissipates and we can see.

I can come to inner calm and peace without resolving the question. The events of the world will reveal, in their time, the answers.

My need to know prematurely is a source of confusion.

Clarity and patience are often bound in the same strand of comprehension.

Doing not doing, knowing not knowing, these are actually states of awareness, the humility to wait for what will be.

Resolution often has more to do with letting go of anxiety than with the actual solution of a problem.

Uncertainty can be a good thing

Monday, April 27, 2009

Uncertainty can be a good thing.

Not knowing is the doorway to knowing.

When we stand in that portal it is the beginning of humility.

The deeper our uncertainty goes the greater the lesson that is emerging.

Are you questioning everything in your life?

Then your life is coming together.

Are you pretending to know, burying your uncertainty?

Then your life is falling apart.

It is a form of the Sufi idea of joy in disappointment, knowing that the divine
truth is always being revealed, that any loss takes away from the illusion and
leads deeper into the essence of the true universe.

Naturally, my uncertainty makes me reject this truth quite often. That is the
very nature of denial, the lack of humility. The bear does not yield his prey to
the wolves gracefully.

But I am not a bear or a wolf. I am another window into the dance of life.

In the moment of the divine flow flooding my gratitude I can truly say thank you
for everything.

In the deepest not knowing, that total humility, is knowing.

Friday light to ponder

Friday, April 24, 2009

The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers.

We spend more, but have less; we buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time.

We have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness.

We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom. We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often.

We've learned how to make a living, but not a life. We've added years to life not life to years. We've been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor. We conquered outer space but not inner peace.

We write more, but learn less. We plan more, but accomplish less.

We've learned to rush, but not to wait. We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but we communicate less and less.

These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small character, steep profits and shallow relationships. These are the days of two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, and broken homes.

It is a time when technology can bring this blog to you, and a time when you can choose either to share this insight, or to just hit delete.

Remember to give a warm hug to the one next to you because that is the only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn't cost a cent.

Remember, to say, "I love you" to your partner and your loved ones, but most of all mean it.

Give time to love, give time to speak and give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind.

Have a wonderful weekend!

As I've Walked Through Life

attitude or it controls you.

kick you when you're down will be the
ones to help you get back up.

I've learned...

the way you want them to doesn't mean they
don't love you with all they have.

I've learned...
that no matter how good a friend is, they're
going to hurt you every once in a while and
you must forgive them for that.

I've learned...

make you a decent human being.

I've learned...
that family and friends are what make
us who we are today, and without them
we would never be complete. - unknown

Always believe in Miracles

Wednesday, April 22, 2009

Believe in your heart that
something wonderful is about to happen.

Love your life.
Believe in your own powers,
and your own potential,
and in your own innate goodness.

Wake every morning
with the awe of just being alive.

Discover each day the magnificent,
awesome beauty in the world.

Explore and embrace life in yourself
and in everyone you see each day.
Reach within to find your own specialness.

Don't be afraid to admit
that you are less than perfect;
this is the essence of your humanity.

Let those who love you help you.
Trust enough to be able to take.

Look with hope to the horizon of today,
for today is all we truly have.

Let a little sun out as well as in.
Create your own rainbows.

Be open to all your possibilities;
all possibilities and miracles.

Always believe in miracles.

I hope this has brightened your day, and lifted your heart, Kimmy

Joy in the Sun

Tuesday, April 21, 2009

There may be many reasons why man wants to conquer the world, however there is something youthful and soul-stirring, to be able to do it for someone else!

Living within oneself is barren and shallow, lacking in warmth and without understanding.



It is impossible to even be selfish without the help of others. Who would we take from, blame troubles on, resent, and criticize? But more important, who would care when we're ill, who would be happy when we're blessed, and who would love us when we least deserve it?

The world may be deluged with problems and solutions, laws to live by, formulas, fear, faith, and the everlasting struggle to survive in the face of others, but it is just as necessary to share laughter in happiness, to know life in a sunset, and to feel joy in a sunrise, all more beautiful because of others.

When I Need To "Fall Apart"

Monday, April 20, 2009

We don't always have to be strong to be strong.

Sometimes our strength is expressed in being vulnerable.

Sometimes we need to fall apart to regroup and stay on track.

We all have days when we cannot push any harder, cannot hold back self-doubt, cannot stop focusing on fear, cannot be strong.

There are days when we cannot focus on being responsible.

Occasionally, we don't want to get out of our pajamas.

Sometimes we cry in front of people, we expose our tiredness, irritability, or anger.

Those days are okay. They are just okay.

Part of taking care of ourselves means we give ourselves permission to "fall apart" when we need to.

We do not need to be perpetual towers of strength.

We ARE strong. We have proven that.

Our strength will continue if we allow ourselves the courage to feel scared, weak, and vulnerable when we need to experience those feelings.

Today, help me to know that is it okay to allow myself to be human.
Help me not to feel guilty or punish myself when I need to "fall apart."

Are you being a role model?

Thursday, April 16, 2009

You're forming their lives and they need a good role model when they're young. Someday, how you treat them wil effect how they treat others and their own children.

Remember, only YOU can refuse to speak defeat. If you are defeated, it's by your own lips, or those of others who you choose to listen to that speak negative words.

You can fill your words with faith and prosper, or you can fill your words with doubt and fail. You can fill your words with love and melt the coldest heart , or you can fill your heart with the coldest poision. You can fill your words that will help the discouraged and broken hearted, and faith that can stir heaven.

The decision is yours and ONLY yours.

For Just A Moment

Monday, April 13, 2009

For just a moment
I’m sure I saw
a flicker of light ahead.
Perhaps it was your smile.
Though past now, remembered,
in my heart
like the small sound of
a butterfly passing by.
No night
is so dark
that can not be brightened
with memories of you.
Raindrops carry along
your blessings from heaven
to wash away my tears
and bring me hope anew.

I accept responsibility

Wednesday, April 8, 2009

Have you ever stepped out of character and did something downright mean? I did. I had been going back and forth with someone, and decided to cross the line. I said somethings I regret. Most of all, I made it seem that I was taking sides, when I didn't even do what I claimed to do.

Part of growing up is taking responsibility for my actions, even when the other person does not accept apologies, or any room for human anger.

I talked to a collegue of mine about a separate issue today, and he reminded me of how he has made a decision of keeping all negative karma out of his life. I felt bad, because at times, I create my own negative karma.

I accept responsibility for judging others, and I will maintain control when I feel the need to judge.

Prolonged Intuition

Saturday, April 4, 2009

Whereas we can reach the intellect only through thinking, we can reach the spirit only through intuition.

The practice of meditation is simply the deepening, broadening, and strengthening of intuition. A mystical experience is simply a prolonged intuition. - Mr Mark Scorelle

End Goal

Thursday, April 2, 2009




I lose focus. I am not perfect. As humans, we have good days and bay days. On bad days I find I am angry, maybe even jealous. I wish I could be someone else, not having to work so hard. Then I saw this today.

"You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger."

Anger has been my own road block. I will change the way I view my own missteps, and work to hurdle the challenges rather than stop forward progress.

Do you sabotage your journey?

Why do you stay under your own obstacles by losing focus of your end goal?
