While sitting patiently with a wounded friend in a hospital waiting room for five hours I drew this image. It took another three hours to get a diagnosis. Listening and observing sick and wounded people arriving in the hospital waiting room with their loved ones, their brows knit with concern, tempers flaring due to the long wait. Some of them diverted their attention to what I was quietly doing. Some of the comments were, “That is a really good drawing, you should do something with that” or “My brother is an artist”. I just smile inside, talk about art and kept drawing to help us get through the wait. Wow, something so beautiful as her coming out of a difficult situation.
Is there ever enough? This girl thinking she has but a little. Then as the thoughts of gratitude go out to the universe, she is reminded of other things she has been blessed with. Fresh air, clean cloths, a full tummy, a friendly smile, people she calls her own, a car that runs, nice cozy bed to sleep in… The list goes on. She then realizes indeed, she has such an abundant life; her gratitude list goes on and on. Yes indeed, she has more than enough.
Have you ever felt stuck in a blue sort of way? Boy, our lady here does. She is thinking how does she get out of this mess? Her best thinking isn’t going to get her out of this dilemma. She is going to have to call for help. “HELP”!! There is plenty of it out there. I hope she is able to see, hear, and accept it when it comes. Aid is on its way.
That’s it we are not budging! We will keep ourselves safe and secure in what we believe is the truth. Good thing our guy here has snaps on his armor, easy to be removed. But, we must ask permission first before we help him get going again.
You just told her blah, blah and she knows you want her to take your side on the issue. While you are pontificating she turns her head sideways. Now that she has your attention, she lets you know there is another point of view on the issue. Might as well let her have her say if she is going to put her neck out like that.
In doing an experiment for a period of time by giving everyone within my knowing a present I learned a great deal. In the Jewish tradition they talk about a thing called bread of shame which very simply put means that a person thinks they need to earn what they receive. I found that overall this is true, people need to have a reason they receive a gift. On the other side, the gift giver then deals with their own ego in the giving. I learned quite a bit about charity. I learned too a gift given in love is so well received. They say without love a person cannot have hope, faith or charity. I have a feeling this is true.
In my profession many symposiums and trainings are attended. It is so wonderful to be with people that share your interests and are on your same wavelength. I get so excited when I get to meet authors of books and theories I have devoured and cherished. Humbly and gratefully exchanging thoughts and ideas with my peers and mentors. One of my previous bosses said, trying to deal with a group of therapists is like trying to heard cats. Ha, I have to laugh; I am one!
I was born in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. I long for the mountains of my youth, as I always know where I am when I am in Colorado. Have you ever gazed at a mountain range and mused at how they look like a person laying down on the land? Our Mother Earth here shows us it is true. There is a spirit of the land.
Here we have the Goddess of the Sun. She radiates out upon the universe her enormous energy and light. We bask in her glory and realize without her there would be no light. No light, no seeing, no color, no warmth. Thank you Goddess for shining brightly and giving us a beautiful radiant life.
Have you ever had a situation suddenly reveal itself? It is like it was there all the time, just in the next room. For some reason you just choose not to look in that particular room. You pull back the curtain then, wowwy kazowy; it was something that really rocked your world. This is what is going on for our guy here. He was happy in his naivety. Now that he knows this secrete he must face it. Hope he has plenty of hankies and love around to deal with it.
