Inspirations and life's lessons

Flowing Water
This was a beautiful video about the power of believing in oneself. We are all aware  that we  have many challenges to face during our life times. It looks as though some folks have a harder time than we do  and some have an easier time.  It is easy to think that there is nothing that we can do to change a bad marriage, a chronic disease, an unhappy childhood but I don't think that is true.

Nothing is what it appears to be

We think that we know what is really going on. We think that we know what is happening before we even show up. I went to do a presentation at the Manville Senior center on Dreams. I really enjoy going to speak to these folks and apparently they enjoy it as well. I often have the same folks coming each time just to hear what I will say. Today we started out talking about Dreams and somehow we ended up talking to about  the sightings  departed spirits.

The Troublemaker

Are you a troublemaker in your life? Do you feel like you are always stirring things up for your family and friends. I certainly feel that way. I often feel that my observations   bump people right  out of their comfort zone. I  think that my husband Nat thinks that I am. I can see the expression on his face  of why can't we just enjoy the moment. I feel like I have always had this function.  I really understood it more clearly after watching this youtube The Troublemaker, by Pema Chodren.

Pema talks about how the spiritual teacher/ friend is supposed to stir up trouble  to help others move along on their path. I love teaching people about  healing and  spirituality and how  it all fits into the bigger picture. Sometimes, in the process, I rearrange the bigger picture or add a new piece of information  and then it is trouble.
So if you find yourself plagued by a troublemaker in your life, please say thank you to them.

May I have the Courage to create my own art?

May I have the courage today
To live the life that I would love,
To postone my dream no longer
But do at last what I came here for
And waste my heart on fear no more.

Do you have arty genes?

When is the last time that you used your hands in a creative way? Today, last week or maybe it was when you were a child. I loved to draw when I was in grammar school and then again after college and then again when I turned 50. There were too many blank spaces that were filled with a craving to be creative but no action. I talked myself out of being creative and felt that everyone else had the arty genes except for me. My husband as a photograher, my sister as a knitter, my mother as a writer and pianist, and the list went on and on.
