Precious Moments~ Make Each One Count.

Candles of Peace

Every disaster around the world makes us think how fragile we are. Each Life lost is a precious gem that has enriched our Earth and our lives. Every soul upon their path contributing to the Web of our existence. And still we ask that age old Question of WHY? Why is life seemingly cut short, Why do such disasters occur? Why do our loved ones suffer? Why are such tragedies occurring around our globe. Not only now in the recent Storm of Oklahoma, but in the many storms that man makes around our globe as he takes up arms against his own species in war.. not to mention all the other atrocities that happen to Man and beast.

Events such as the one we have seen in Oklahoma and others around our world such as the Tsunami’s, the Hurricanes, and Earthquakes around our globe, show us just how small mankind is in the face of Nature, and how in the Blink of an Eye all we held dear could be swept away. 

Below is part of a personal poem I wrote some years ago, I have adapted for this post, you can find the fuller first version of it Here .  So as you begin your day, as you send your loved ones on their way remember as you wave them goodbye All could change Because………….

In the Blink of an Eye

You never know when fate comes knocking at your door.

His calling card delivered a reminder to us all,

Enjoy each precious moment, as Mr Grim could pay a call.

For in a Blink of an Eye, all you hold dear could be lost

So Hug and tell your dearest you love them the most.

 Life could slip through your fingers, just like a grain of sand.

So reach out and hold each others hand.

For Moments are Precious they are the only ones we live

Embrace each other as we learn to share and give

 

My Love and Prayers go out around the world to whom ever is facing pain and loss… You have my thoughts……

Sue Dreamwalker

    Beautiful as always, Sue. These storms/disasters are growing stronger and more deadly. I just happened to write about the tornado in Oklahoma and it took everything in me not to mention how our actions are contributing to the severity of these storms. My heart goes out to all the families, while I say a silent prayer of thanks that my family is fine at the moment.

      Thank you Lois, I remember several years back in a Camelot Interview, I forget the gentleman’s name but he was someone in the know!.. And his prediction was that the storms would intensify to 200 to 300 mph winds in super-cell storms… Now back then I didnt buy into some of the theories being branded about. But over the years have gathered evidence for myself that something is being manipulated with regards to weather control.. With cloud seeding etc.. When we start messing around in things we know nothing about.. then it seems we are indeed playing with fire… He was advocating to build rounded homes.. and not made of wood..
      My heart goes out too, such trauma and yet my own instincts say these are just the beginning of Natures Wrath as we meddle and manipulate with our Planets Natural systems, such as weather, GMO products, Seeds, and fracking for oil etc… We are but specs upon this planet!.. Yet so many think we are invincible. Thank you

        We play with things we have no idea what consequences they will have. The cumulative effects of all this experimenting has grave consequences. I was watching the documentary Resonance last night which looks at the earths magnetic field and how cell towers have changed the magnetic fields. The results are disturbing. Everything from cancer, bleeding internally, disrupting the migration of birds to explaining some of the reason for hive collapse. I really worry for our grandchildren’s heath in future years. They won’t have easy access to healthy food, clean water, or even be able to engage in the natural world the way we did.

This is so needed as the energies are accelerating ever faster…. We each of us have a choice and must understand we are needed in order to restore order from chaos which is on the cusp of our existence.. Many thanks again ~Sue

    We never know for sure when death will knock upon our doors but unfortunately we can now have an idea. The Oklahoma tragedy was devastating, but even more so when you know it was weather manipulated!There is no other word for this than murder. My outrage just keeps growing everyday. I send prayers but the rage still grows. I am very tired of all this….Great piece you wrote DW. Thanks for sharing those sentiments…Bless you as always….With Love….VK

For those who are blind to this I can only say they need to dig out their own research information as to what is happening in our so called ‘Real’ World.. and their eyes would pop!… Try not to add your anger….. But channel your energies instead to the building of knowledge in defeating those who wield their dark fists… As we combat such destruction with rebuilding our communities with even more strength based upon Love and co-operation not control and fear…
      Thank you for that link you posted I hope that more will investigate and awaken their minds to the world.

    Powerful poem, Sue. I have no idea what happened in Oklahoma (I don’t follow the news anymore) but it’s unfortunate that so many are so obtuse that it takes a disaster to wake them up and open their eyes to all the things they should be grateful for. I believe in balance, that the universe is constantly trying to establish balance in the face of imbalance, and these disasters may be a response to the aloof, detached and oblivious mentality most people are content to have. Everything comes at a price, and so I rarely find myself having much sympathy for people who suddenly “think deep” when they receive a “cosmic slap upside the head.” 🙂
    Much love sister,

      I have been saying for a while in my thoughts on here Miro how Nature would do just that… giving us a ‘Cosmic Slap’ When it happens on USA soil as this tragedy has all the media is full of it.. And yet when thousands die in flood, earthquakes, when millions starve to death, and thousands are killed in Man’s Wars around our globe its impact hardly goes noticed..
      Some times the Stark facts of life have to hit us straight between the eyes before we sit up and take notice..
      This was one such occasion, when we see that it matters not how big we think we are.. we are but a spec in the scheme of Universal Laws and our Natural World…

    Poignant and beautiful. I lost my brother in a car accident two years ago and I remember feeling that in the blink of an eye, it can all change. But even before that, as a kid who grew up in a nursing home, I had long since been familiar with Mr. Grim. It gives you perspective – lots of it – and though I like my routine, sometimes I shake it all up so that I make sure to live life the best I can and do things I might not otherwise – because you never know about tomorrow. My heart also goes out to any and all who may be suffering. xo

    Disasters such as this serve to remind us of the true power of nature, and how helpless we really are when it shows it’s true strength. How little we understand of the world around us that both keeps us alive and sweeps our lives away without mercy. And we dare to mess with Mother nature?…At our own peril.xx

I am lost for words, these disasters are becomming more prevelent through out the world. Mother Nature is eternal, man is mortal, we can not win the war we are waging against Nature.

Bringing the Oneness back in unity as communities work together to rebuild, not only their lives and homes, but the very fabric which Humanity has throughout the recent times forgotten and that is to bring back Mankinds ‘kindness’ as we share our compassion and love….

    As you say, Sue, Mother Nature is such a powerful force in her own right, , she performs, and we respond, the only way we can…by surviving and continuing, and for goodness sake, surely learning what our actions are doing to the Planet… When will we wake up and understand the delicate balance we are disturbing by our actions… Disasters such as Oklahoma remind us how fragile our lives are… and then yesterday a life was taken on a London Street, and it was horrendous ,I sat there watching it all unfold, .. almost like a nightmare, where it seemed as if every action was accepted as normal.. , in fact, I just stared horrified at the poor Soldiers body, lying uncared for, ’til two women tried to help him. The women talked to those two…stupid, misguided brainwashed idiots who felt they were making a statement for their so called ‘CAUSE’. How can I describe what I feel? … Why in heavens name has it come to this?…Violence in any form is abhorrent, yet this act underlines how far we’ve come along that road,… using killing, butchery to terrorise and force their opinions and so called rights onto others… Yes, we never know what the next day will bring…but whatever it has in store we have to meet it with hope, …hope for the future,and hope that we live and learn… Learn that we are not the masters of this Planet.. we are tolerated, and expendable..
    As usual Sue you’ve given a lot of food for thought… many thanks for waking up my thought process again.. . I was still feeling numb from yesterdays horrific event.. love and light. xPenx

      Yes Pen I agree with you, just when will people wake up to their actions that our planet is finely balanced and we are making a very good job of creating chaos.. Not only with our interferences in Mother Nature, but also how we have upset the magnetic grid with the influx of invisible rays we pulsate out throughout our world in the criss cross of invisible lines as birds get lost as they migrate and Dolphins try to beach themselves.. Each Action we take as a re-action… So too do we send out invisible waves of energy as we send out our thoughts.. Its these thoughts we also have a huge impact upon our Natural world.. We are reaping what we are sowing.. Chaos and destruction comes back to us in ways we may not always see as connected.. But when you understand that ALL things Are connected.. we then see that each of our thoughts have an impact upon society. That is why it is imperative not to buy into the FEAR which we see is being generated so forcefully at the moment .. Why I Do not watch the News.. In fact I went upstairs out of the way as my hubby watched the half hour of the tragic murder of the soldier..
      My hope for the future Pen is that we can learn to be more caring and compassionate, caring and kinder, less judgemental and more tolerant.. I think though Pen, we still have MUCH to learn. Love and light back ~Sue xox
