Green Candle of Truth

 

green candle of truth

iris bud reminds me of a candle
a light
a ~truth~
that the body will perish at some point
but few like to think about this
the awareness burns more brightly as one ages
as the iris of the eye opens
birth and death come as a pair
dying to certain things means birthing something new
fully living allows one to die well
the iris has to die to the bud
in order to bloom
the bloom has to die
to create seeds
so new life is possible
so it may continue in some way again
but the iris doesn’t seem to have any worries or fears
about each stage
it just seems to live happily
in whatever stage it happens to be
letting each stage unfold naturally

Soft and Forgiving

“Life is remembrance in forgetfulness.  Forgive what ought to be forgiven: forget what ought to be forgotten.  Let us embrace life with renewed vigor.”

—Amma

 

“In order to complete your relationship with the past, you need to express forgiveness and appreciation to those who have given you a boost, even if they also wounded you.  …  When you hold tightly to old anger and withhold your expressions of appreciation, you have no breathing space, no room for positive energy to flow through you.  The moment you forgive and say, “Thank you,” a relief flows through you, bringing fresh energy that propels you forward.  Incompletions have a stronger grip on us than most people realize.  They make us drive through life looking at the road only through the rearview mirror.  A real transformation occurs when you shift your vision to look through the windshield.  Co-committed relationships can exist only between people who see each other for who they are, not distorted through the filters of past incompletions.”

—Guy & Katherine Hendricks, Conscious Loving

Place

 

focus word: place

Now is a dwelling place, a space. Wherever you go, it can be your home, a place of awareness, a place where Divine can be felt. Present moment. Eternal moment.

The heart is a space from which one can call upon Divine 24/7.

Reminds me of Jesus’ words about place: “The last will be first, and the first will be last.”

Align Divine, and all will  be fine, will fall into place.

Frog Scriptures

 

At the pond,
I went out on a quest
for frogs
I did see ~fleetingly~
hundreds of frogs hopping,
leaving water jewels on pads
like diamonds
evidence of their having been there
I asked them
if any would sit still
so I could take closer looks
but NONE would after much pleading
even though I told them I don’t eat frogs
