Tikkun Olam

In Hebrew there is a wonderful phrase

 

Tikkun Olam - it means repairer of the world's soul.

 

Everyday the soul gets unraveled and each of us are here to mend it. 

 

Each of us is a miracle of uniqueness. 

 

Each of us, therefore, is responsible for cultivating the full fertility of our soul; 

 

and all it has to give to the world.

Ode To A Daisy

The sleek stem
grass green
and tall
and the
petals are like
jewels on a
queen’s crown.

Like diamonds,
even prettier
than ever.

Like a
disco ball,
giving light
to the room.

Like stars,
shining
through the
night.
The crisp,
green leaves
are like
emeralds,
sparkling
in the sun.

Like deep,
green eyes
staring right
at yours.

Ode to
a daisy,
my favorite
flower,
The beautiful
ones in my
garden.

My song for Saturday - Bird York, In the Deep



Thought you had
All the answers
To rest your heart upon.
But something happens,
Don't see it coming, now
You can't stop yourself.
Now you're out there swimming...
In the deep.
In the deep.

Life keeps tumbling your heart in circles
Till you... Let go.
Till you she'd your pride, and you climb to heaven,
And you throw yourself off.
Now you're out there spinning...
In the deep.
In the deep.
In the deep.
In the deep.

And now you're out there spinning...
And now you're out there spinning...
In the deep.
In the deep.
In the deep.

And the silence,
All your secrets will
Raise their weary heads.
Well, you can pin yourself back together,
Well, who here thought you would?
Now you're out there livin'...
In the deep.
In the deep.
In the deep.

In the deep...

Now you're out there spinning...
Now you're out there swimming...
Now you're out there spinning...
In the deep.
In the deep.
In the deep.
In the deep...

The Souls Path

I travel the road set before me,

Though the destination’s unknown.

With trust and grim resolution;

I know I must journey alone.

But others travel around me.

And our paths meander and cross.

Then forks or a rocky embankment;

Leave me searching, my Soul at a loss.

With faith and some apprehension,

My fear dissolves in delight!

As a new road forms there before me,

And I take the path to the right.

Mountains swell all around me,

Their summits lost to a storm.

Then I notice the road ahead falters,

And I drop to my knees, my heart torn.

The road behind is but a memory,

A shadow is all that remains.

But the darkness glimmers with wisdom,

And I see all the lessons I’ve gained.

So with one step I tackle the mountains,

I endure the wrath of the storm.

Some Souls travel beside me,

While others leave me lost and forlorn.

When dawn caress’ the morning,

And the road is again straight and true,

I find I am so much the stronger,

The disappointments I hold but a few.

The Soul travels a journey,

From birth to the heavens above,

Though the road is often rocky,

It is made easier when there is love!

Doors

There are things known, and there are things unknown. And in between are the doors." Jim Morrison

Each situation has something new to teach and there is something to learn from it.

When I am able to understand the fact that all life's situations are just training for me, I am able to learn from everything that happens.



I am able to build up and use my inner powers more and more and I find myself moving forward with positive momentum each passing moment.
