Being thankful for the road you travel on.

Roads End.

Clouds at last lift from my sky

As the road is straighter I travel by

Home is still a little ways off

The journey of discovery is it ever enough?

~~

Do we stop to be grateful for the road we tread?

Have you ever questioned what lies ahead?

Do you now seek the key to your life?

Why is it some suffer and endure such strife?

~~

When did you say thank you for the road that you travelled

Unlocking the doors you become less ravelled

For one by one we see the lessons unfold

Bringing us strength, helping us be bold.

~~

So as you step upon your path today

Send out a thought of thanks to say

I’m grateful for this path that I am on

For many souls who would have loved to walk my path have now gone

~~

They’re already exploring beyond this veil

Leaving behind only a memory trail

And that my friends is all we will take

So enjoy your Life’s Path and the memories you create

~~

Let them be happy within your own heart

Cherish them close to take with you when you depart

Clear you mind of the bitter clouds

That inhibit your path as you struggle and frown

~~

Walk tall and smile if you can

And remember

We are all part of a huge Divine Plan.

    Nice one DW…Well said for sure! It is indeed an amazing journey we travel and as we tire we tend to become less positive and complain, when in fact that is the very time to be thankful and grateful that we are still around to be exhausted. It just takes our decision to be mindful. Thanks for sharing….Hugs to you…VK

      Being ever mindful VK is something we are always being aware of… Even though I know at times the road at times appears to have road blocks.. But we just flex our muscles and get on out and clear the way with our minds.. And once others get it.. and understand how our journey works.. well, who knows.. we may well speed right on by to our final destination 😉 .. Lets hope others can me mindful and realise how Mind affects our roads.. 🙂 Love and Hugs Sue xxx

    I took the one less traveled by,
    And that has made all the difference.”

    I know those questions well My Friend 🙂
    and as I wandered in a few of them today, I realized I can only be pushed away to the back of “not enough to matter” when something gives….the rock rolls away and down to the waters edge and with a splash it sends ripples to the otherside…
    and as it always seems it is a one way send, no consideration that it hurts in the silence of echoes back….. it is time for it to stop sending those ripples for they obviously don’t matter do they…

    I am very Grateful for the lessons, I am tired of the not knowing where to stand from one minute to the next..so I think I will clear this path and create another one…
    Thank you for your words that feel deep within my soul….
    You Matter very much Sue…Take Care….!
    Have a Great week…

      Very true Jack.. ” “The Good Red Road” is a phrase used by many different Native American tribal communities to represent one who is walking the road of balance, living right and following the rules of the Creator…” .. Keeping straight and along the path, following the Rules of Nature and Universal Laws.. And as in the Tao, its about ” behaviour, attitude, a way of living,”.. These are what being on the road means… Some may have strayed off the path.. But more and more I seeing the Road which lays ahead if we do not alter our way of being right now…
      We have to start and become more thankful, and live in gratitude not only in each other but with nature… We can not keep taking her for granted…
      Balance is the key… for ever action, there is a reaction. and our actions now are causing Mother Natures Reactions.. I know you know this Jack.. But lets hope some sleepy eyes will read our comments eh! Blessings as always for your wise observations

    Dear Sue,

    What an absolutely empowering verse! What resonated with me are these lines you have penned.

    “So as you step upon your path today
    Send out a thought of thanks to say
    I’m grateful for this path that I am on…..”

    How many of us hold the consciousness to be appreciative of our own life’s journey? As we go through life and living, we are hunkered under the twin loads of ‘regrets from the past’ and ‘ apprehensions of the future’.So much so that there there is scarcely any space left for being fully conscious of our present.

    Rather that allowing our experiences from the past to light up our present from it’s learning, we allow them to colour our belief filters and distort and constrain our view of our present.

    Rather than allowing our dreams of the future to energise our movement, we remain conditioned to be fearful of leaving our comfort zone and what all might go wrong.

    So what is it we could do to enjoy every moment of our path today? I believe we need to practice the art of Self Consciousness. We do this by identifying that ‘Self’ inside us which can observe that clearing within where our entire world including our own self arises and occurs. As we do this we start gaining access to
    ‘being and dancing in the moment’.

    Cheers

    Shakti

      “So what is it we could do to enjoy every moment of our path today?”…
      So strange you should ask that today Shakti.. I answered another post only today as someone asked had I ever people watched.. It brought back the memory of a another poem I had written.. When people watching as I waited in a hospital waiting room.. I caught my own reflection in the glass as I was observing… and this poem was the result..

      Sitting on my seat, I watch them by the door
      Gloomy faces set in stone, eyes held to the floor
      I melt into the background of a sea of discontent
      Of thoughts they cannot hear, as their energy is spent

      A cloud that settled just above my head
      Pressed its weight, until I remembered what you said
      ‘Shine your Light Girl, Light a beacon in the Dark.
      And don’t worry if some days all you give is but a spark’

      ‘Remember a spark lights the biggest of all fires
      And I know Girl, of your inner most desires’
      So I looked up to the cloud whose colour was all grey
      And I used my thoughts to send it clean away

      Getting up from my seat I walked towards the door
      And I smiled into the eyes of those cast down to floor
      Some gazed back unsteady, as they hadn’t seen a smile
      Others lips did quiver as they hadn’t used one in a while

      Who was this strange woman, whose eyes were sparkling bright?
      As she smiled and said hello, to everyone in sight
      Heads did turn, murmurings were made
      And someone shouted, ‘maybe she is insane?’

      But I laughed now out loud as the sun shone down on me
      As I thanked my higher-self, for filling me with glee
      Happiness is all a state of mind
      So bring out the smiles for soon you will find

      You too can add your spark and brighten up your path
      So come on now SMILE! And Choose to Laugh.

      Blessings Dear Shakti.. for always making me look into ME. 🙂

    Interesting question you pose in your poem today. If I look back at my life there were hardships and pain but each made me who I am today. I am thankful for each experience because I know I wouldn’t be who I am today if I hadn’t walked that path and I fear I might not have liked the person I might have become without the experiences I lived through.
