Peace in our Hearts

Communication is the key to peace.

We try with all our might to make it more complicated. Whether it is with our world leaders or our neighbors next door to us, communication is the key to open our hearts to one another.

Without verbally opening up to each other, how can we know how we feel? Yes, the time is coming soon where we will be able to communicate without words.

We will look into each others eyes and will know the feelings in each others hearts at a glance.

What a wondrous time that will be. There will be no more secrets. We will be open with our thoughts, free to let each other know what we think. This is already starting to happen.

We are beginning to use the tools. We are re-membering what a natural feeling this is only to be stopped by our human thoughts of fear. "What if they don't like what I am saying? What if I hurt their feelings with my truth? What if I explode with my anger?"

Please don't be afraid of their reaction as it can be a source to more communication. Let us be open with kindness in our hearts. These are tools to be developed and with use we will perfect them.

Enjoy the learning process. We may stumble along the way but we can pick ourselves up and begin again. We are all in this together.

Without the openness of communication there will be barriers that build into strong walls of resentment. Haven't we seen this with people in our daily lives?

Let us talk with those who cause turmoil in our lives. Thank them for the lessons they have presented.

After openly communicating, feel the heaviness attached to your heart lift. Feel the closeness to this person. If this is not possible, bless them anyway and move on. Use discernment.

This will cut the attachment to the uneasiness that has been experienced. Then we will have peace in our hearts.

Things Happen For A Reason

Things happen for a reason!

We dare not, question why!

We may not ever know, the answer and time, just passes by.

No matter how we access it, these things, still remain a blank.

If it's bad, we don't want to know, but should it be good, who, do we thank?

Whichever it may be, we have to take it. For if you wager a guess, chances are, you'll not win. Just keep in mind, whatever happens in our lives, is all about destiny. There's not much you can do, to change it, so live your life, in harmony.

Perhaps, one day down the road, it will not be of concern, anymore.

For life, keeps you constantly in it's spell and there is, no why, or
wherefore!

Whirlwind of Enlightenment

Definition of WHIRLWIND

1. : a small rotating windstorm of limited extent 
2. : a confused rush : Whirl <a whirlwind of meetings>  
3. : a violent or destructive force or agency

When you seek, you shall find. In my chaotic few weeks, I have struggled to find an explanation, and/or answers how to get past this without lashing out.  

Then..this was shared with me late last night. 

Names have been removed because this is advice to ME, not them.

"You are pissed off and frustrated because none of them are behaving the way you think they should.   

You are still being sucked in by this dysfunctional merry-go-round……you are still emotionally and detrimentally enmeshed in this.   

If you want to get untangled from this mess, you will have to change your reaction, and thought process to maintain your mental health and find some peace.   

Your anger serves no good purpose. You need to let go; give it to God….He’s got lessons to give.   

When you feel yourself being pulled in, all you need to do is, (say aloud or in your head)…..“Bless them on their chosen path”, and get out of the way.   ‘Stick With You’ because you are the only one you can change.    

By setting this example for your own, maybe you can break the cycle of enmeshment in your daughter's future relationships."

Thank you for this great advice Aja.  I know I can sit in my own pity party, lash out, or decide the only thing I can do is accept my fate, and break the patterns passed down from generations of dysfunction.

Just be quiet

I think this post has been coming for a while now.

We live in a communication haven, (heaven), lol.  However we also have lived in a "don't ask don't tell" type of world.

Many people choose to look the other way, instead of engage in conflict, challenge others, or simply do what is right.  The Penn State scandal proved that to us.  Say nothing, because it will hurt the "school", because the "school's image" was more important that the crimes to children.

Sadly, I have dealt with this in my career, and in my personal life.  We are suppose to allow people to abuse others, simply because no one wants to deal with the abuser. Let's bow down to the screamer and the yeller, and hope we get back to normal soon. How nice would it be to put the abuser in his/her place, and force them to face consequences?

I am tired of being "quiet"!  What does that get me?

NOTHING.  My elders taught me to "take care of myself", and "stand up for myself", however today, they chose the path of the weak. Lower their heads and ignore what is right. Even worse, they remind me of Sandusky's wife!  Blame everyone else but the abuser!! THEN pull at my family's solid core, and place guilt on us?  That sounds like a bully to me!! 

When you make your choices, no matter what they are, live with it. When karma comes around to bite you in your ass, look in the mirror, and not who else you can blame!!

I know who I am, and although people don't like it, you always know where I am at. I am not afraid of conflict, or a fight!  How else can you get past the difficult times?

CHALLENGE each other, or walk away. There is no room for wishy washy cowards who hide behind their psychosis and mistakes.

Or don't. Do not expect me to play the "nodding" game.  I was never good at that. Either hit me, or walk away.

Communication Breakdown

Exhausted.

Why am I so stressed and exhausted? Because it seems that if I don't referee communication in my family, extended and non extended, nothing is said, and I live in silence.

Which for me is a fate worse than death.

In order to stop being the mediator, I have to learn to accept the silence, as it is not mine to control. I can feel the energy waves in the room, and it is like a boxing ring, or worse, a Soap Opera drama atmosphere.

It's only 6pm, and I wish to just go to bed, and escape this silence.

Do I feel the others in the room, wanting me to break the silence and open the lines up? Is that my duty, my job, my destiny? lol.

OR.. do I publish this post, and get some chocolate chip COOKIES!!!

SOLD!

When the light is dimmed

Sometimes life is good, great even. Sometimes we stumble.

Right now, it seems that everything I know, was turned upside down, but I am told, and directed just to let it play.

Struggling with wanting the best for my family, and knowing some things are not mine to control has been my clarity.

My good friend Janet shared this with me today. "The two greatest gifts a parent can give their child is roots and wings!!" How true is that!!

Light can be dimmed, but there is still light. Look for it, and it will be there!

Embrace it!

Cry Out in Your Weakness

Where lowland is,
that’s where water goes. All medicine wants
is pain to cure. . . .

Tear the binding from around the foot
of your soul, and let it race around the track
in front of the crowd. . . .

Give your weakness
to one who helps.

Crying out loud and weeping are great resources.
 
A nursing mother, all she does
is wait to hear her child.

Just a little beginning-whimper,
and she’s there.

God created the child, that is, your wanting,
so that it might cry out, so that milk might come.

Cry out! Don’t be stolid and silent
with your pain. Lament! And let the milk
of loving flow into you.

Sons of Anarchy finale review


Sons of Anarchy – Recap & Review – To Be, Act Two
Original Air Date: Dec 6, 2011

After another incredible season that managed to break records, break some of our hearts, and break several remotes that were thrown at the TV, we have finally made it to the final episode of season four. This time when the reaper comes on the screen it is the last time we will see it until next September.

Last week we left off with Clay in the hospital and Jax has finally read the letters and knows what Clay did to his father. Jax knows what he has to do to protect what his father was trying to build, but he is still determined to get out of the club. Tara has officially lost her marbles. Gemma is having issues with the fact that not only did she give Jax the letters, but they are not even going to keep him in Charming. Otto ratted out Bobby and Juice ratted out the entire club. Tig managed to stir up a storm with the Niners and with Laroy which will still need to be settled and all of these ends need to be tied up in the next hour… Lets see what happens!

Tuesday Thought

“The most expensive part of building is the mistakes.” ― Ken Follett, The Pillars of the Earth

Taking a step back from chaos and control is more powerful than I thought it would be.

Gives me new insight, and peace.
