Born to be Great

“Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them”

~William Shakespeare~

Nelson Mandela

Who among us can deny the Greatness of this man and his achievements in bringing his nation to a better understanding of Unity and Peace as he put behind him his own personal oppression of imprisonment of 27 yrs.

I have been inspired throughout my life with this  great man,

Nelson Mandela 

who forgave his oppressors and whose wisdom directed his followers to follow Peace and unity and that all were equal…

His wise words here speak for themselves..

Quote

“No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.” From his autobiography, Long Walk To Freedom, published 1995

He also went onto say in this same book..

Quote

“I have walked that long road to freedom. I have tried not to falter; I have made missteps along the way. But I have discovered the secret that after climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb. I have taken a moment here to rest, to steal a view of the glorious vista that surrounds me, to look back on the distance I have come. But I can rest only for a moment, for with freedom comes responsibilities, and I dare not linger, for my long walk is not yet ended.

Yesterday the 5th December 2013 A Great Man’s journey ended as he passed from this Life into his next Great Adventure.

He said speaking of Death in an interview for the award winning documentary ‘Mandela’ in 1996

Quote

“Death is something inevitable. When a man has done what he considers to be his duty to his people and his country, he can rest in peace. I believe I have made that effort and that is, therefore, why I will sleep for the eternity.”

Thank you Nelson Mandela

~Born July 18th 1918 ~ Died Dec 5th 2013~

Age 95 years

In Love and Gratitude for All you have done in the name of Peace for our World

May you rest in Peace

A Dreamwalkers Path

Open Heart Catching Dreams

Thank you for all of your wonderful comments upon my posts especially upon the sisterhood award, I am overwhelmed that so many have showered me with wonderful compliments… I am no one special, I just have a Dream! like many more here who blog, as we reach out via our thoughts hoping to share and make a difference how ever small to the Energy of our world..

Today I found myself replying to a comment how I first came by my Dreamwalker name.. I read a Book by Mary Summer Rain, in fact I have read many of her books but  her book Dreamwalker stuck with me and its name sake resonated with the meaning Mary Summer Rain gave “  What is a Dreamwalker? They are the rare few who, as Mary Summer Rain describes them, are “led by the spirit,’ have “shed the yoke of desire and self-want,” and have discarded the need for material gain and all evidence of negative thought. Without any personal goals, they travel the path of knowledge and go where the spirit of truth leads them”

Well none of us is  ever perfect , and I know I still have negative thoughts and still have a long road to travel until I can say I can do real honour to the name ‘Dreamwalker,and  I know like you, we may forever  pull ourselves up for making the same mistakes  over again.We wonder how our lives would be now, if only we had “known better.”  But we try our best, and that’s really all each of us can do..

TRY OUR BEST.. with Good Intent..

Being born  to this earth is that we are here to observe, learn, and grow.  In order for us to learn, then of course there will be mistakes and misadventures along the way. And while it is only natural that we may sometimes become overwhelmed, especially when the lessons keep coming, it is important to remember that learning to understand yourself and your world is an on-going and active process. We are each upon this journey of discovery together.

It has been my good fortune here on WP to meet the most amazing insightful and wonderful beings, each going through their own journey of discovery and I am so happy when I see many coming through their own dark tunnels as they discover who they are and shed the past and accept themselves for who they are with more love in their hearts for themselves. Its a joy to be part of all of your journeys.. I am so blessed to have met you all..

Every lesson helps us grow as we learn  more of who we are. And as you grow through this self-discovery, you begin to create the “how’s” and “why’s” in your life and experience the beauty of being alive in this ever changing world.

I know I am far from perfect, and as I look out at the many imperfections we as humans have made upon this planet. We each in our own ways are posting our thoughts, ideas, crafts, ways of living in balance with our Earth and Nature be it practically or through Spiritual awareness.. And I am truly honoured to have become part of your worlds…

I may be quiet for a few days as I have certain things to do.. I just want to say Thank you again and leave you with a short 2 minute video which explains the Good Red Road we travel upon .

~ Cree Prophecy ~

I wrote in my journal the other day these words… I was thinking about the Earth and how in such a short space of time we seem to have reeked havoc upon her back, As we have plundered her resources and in the process have managed to make extinct so many of her species she took thousands of years to perfect. And I wondered how long before we annihilate ourselves as we continue along the path. I was reminded of a Native American Quote above..

These are my thoughts.

Bound by the Cord Of Living Energy 

Healing Grid of thoughts

Earth is a wondrous place

Her gifts an endless dance

We breathe as one

We Dream as One

We give thanks for all your sacrifices

Your endless bounty and beauty

May we forever dance together

As we walk and contemplate our intentions

Autumn Beauty

Changes are in the air and beneath our feet

Our conscious flow of energy entwines us both

I honour our sacred connectedness

Let us nurture and care for all of creation

Your love is felt from the source of Light

Sunset Beauty

Help ground us to your heart

Allow our vision to expand with the Universe

For we are the rocks, the flowers, the rain.

Wondrous Water

Our awareness awakens in the New Dawn

As our ancestors blood mingles in your veins

We are Kindred souls within the Matrix

Bound by the cord of living Energy.

Blessed Be…

Just where have the last few days flown too? These last few days seem to have been hectic with my day job, harvesting, and granny sitting which I just love.  Above you can see how my little granddaughter not yet 3 loves to interact with nature… I am trying to teach her not to be afraid of the creepy crawlies and she had this little fellow crawling up over her arms for over 20 mins as she helped us in the allotments…The caterpillar got safely put back in the grass as she gently lifted him, and now knows that caterpillars poo too Smile as she discovered Open-mouthed smile

I seem to have discovered my love of cooking all over again too, and even Hubby who is usually the head cook, has opened his eyes wide at my new found urge to bake more often.. Maybe its the changes in energies as my creative mood seems to have had another boost… So  I will share a couple of recipes with you later in the post.

Ok so remember those Lovely butterflies we have had over Summer?

Peacock

well we also have had our share of the caterpillars and while some in the allotments have sprayed chemicals to get rid of them, we do not use anything like that so its been a case of share and share alike!.

Remember this when I showed you the lattice leaves on the Brussels sprouts ?

Caterpillar Heaven. Herbert the scare-crow, couldn't scare the caterpillar's :-)   The sprouts are just visible below

Well my hubby set two and stripped off the leaves which were covered in our little friends and then I went and did the same along the cabbage row.

The potatoes are now all dug up, we had  around 10 rows, and some are still drying out in the shed awaiting to be sorted, but we should have around 8 large sacks full.. These sacks hold up to 25kl and have only been filled half way or we would not be able to lift them ..

Yesterday we gathered the last of the sweetcorn in, and that is now all safely frozen. we cleared weeds and hoed where the onions were and potatoes were harvested from

Below you can see the sweetcorn patch along with the Leeks and spring onions we set between them.

Blackberries

We are lucky in the fact that we have some wonderful Blackberry brambles around the back of our Allotment shed and have had an abundance of Berries we have picked this year.. In fact upon my travels I have seen many brambles in hedgerows, but would not fancy picking them from the roadside with all of those exhaust fumes which are deposited upon them.

Preserving in air-tight Jars

So I made a wonderful Blackberry and Apple Chutney, the recipe you can find HERE. as I added it to my recipe pages you can find on the top bar under Home Cooked Recipes

Potato and Beetroot Gratin

Then as we have had an abundance of Beetroot my daughter has been adding them to her smoothies and I tried out the Potato and Beetroot gratin which I had never tried before, and we loved it, and I will be making it again..  You can find this recipe HERE upon my Recipe Page.

On the home front in the green house the tomatoes are coming along now nicely as they are ripening, so that green chutney may not be needed.

I may be quiet again for a time as another busy couple of days coming up again.. I hope you give those recipes a try I was amazed how easy they were to make and they both add that little extra something special to a meal.

Until next time take care and be good to each other..Oh and I am still wading thought the back log of all of your posts

The Ripples of Evolution–What Waves are You Making?

A human being is a part of the whole, called by us the Universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest-a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.

~Albert Einstein~

reflection-rainbow_water_colorful_w

Throughout the centuries we have been told of a time to come of Change. Prophecies, Scriptures and authors have felt inspired to write the many books we can read concerning these times.

Many people are  now sensing they need to embrace simpler life styles, growing their own as they strive to become more self sufficient, seeing we cannot keep adding chemicals to the ground and to that which we eat, as we poison ourselves and our environment. Many are now awakening to the real problems of Earths sustainability. 

And yet it seems on the surface that the majority choose to accept the limitations of this Material, Political and Competitive world which is dominated on the whole with so much greed. Never thinking beyond their own narrow boxes of self. What we are witnessing now as we see the Chaos erupting around us are the culmination of our personal fears and insecurities as we see societies and nations collapsing both from a monetary point of view to witnessing upheaval and destruction around our globe.

We are now experiencing many new challenges, some which appear within our own daily lives, others increasingly as we see how we treat our peoples and environment in such disregard all over this planet.

We seem to have lost the ‘Kindness’ from our species of ‘Mankind’.

Our personal fears and insecurities are being brought to the surface by the instabilities of our societies and this is leading us to take sides, which side are you embracing?

Love or Fear? 

Each of us are perhaps now questioning via our thoughts as we get embroiled with where our collective consciousness tends to be centred. For we are bombarded daily with Fear as we are shown via our Media ‘The Big Bad World’.

I visited an elderly Aunt today she is 88 yrs old and she was so upset with what she had been witnessing via the TV news, I told her to not watch it, but just to send out her thoughts of Love to these War ravaged places and people,  for there was nothing she or I could do to help solve what has gone on throughout the ages to bring such conflict.

For those who are regular readers you will know I have said Earth is shifting through her own changes. Birthing is a painful process as we see the breaking down of old systems as various nations collapse. We see lies exposed,  where corruption is highlighted as greed grabs it’s ever tighter hold. So too our environment suffers as it echoes the chaos as our Earth Mother she cries her rains and belches her fires, for she too is transforming.

For we are One.

We need to evolve from our ego ruled world, surrendering the need to control and possess. The world is now facing these unresolved emotions as our perceptions are challenged as each of us may face our own personal traumas as emotions such as Fear, Anger, Greif are brought to the surface so that they may be cleansed once and for all.

We came to Earth whether we remember it or not specifically at this time to enhance the Wave of Universal Consciousness as we learn once again to open up the flood gates to our Hearts.

Some of you may sense we are on the verge of something you can not quite put your finger on, but something urges you to start thinking about making changes in your life. I don’t expect you to believe one word I say, in fact I’d prefer it if you didn’t. The time has come where each of us needs to follow our instincts, as we detach from our Material world.

The Earth too is clearing out that which no longer serves, reminding us all that it matters not what Guru we follow. One thing we ALL rely upon us Nature, Air, Water, Warmth. Learning to trust in the flow of life and not being fearful. Holding onto Fear can lead us to dark places if we allow our thoughts to get dragged down.

It is our choice which path we choose, which path do you want our future world to grow? Are you for Turmoil or Peace?

All I can do is open my heart to love and become more tolerant, less judgemental and hold Compassion for others not hatred and Let go of fear. And keep centred within my own being the thought that we have the power within all of us to help transform the world we came here to evolve in.

That power lay within each of our hearts centres.

The simple act of love, call it faith, or belief or the simple wish of relieving the suffering of our brothers and sisters around the world.

Through Love and compassionate thoughts and the desire to heal ourselves and our world we are being shown we are..

ALL in this Together.

So send out only LOVE and PEACE and Pray for WORLD PEACE.

for we Are ONE.

Create a Ripple Effect to Flood the World with LOVE

Friday Facts ~ Service with a Heart~

We all of us say we want to make a difference in the World, but where do we start?

It’s often the small things in life which make a Huge Difference

If you watch this short 3 minute Video  you will see that when we do things with our Hearts how much difference it makes..

Working as I have done with Down Syndrome Adults you see how their ability to see through and beyond their disabilities capture our hearts as they give of themselves 100%

For One young man Johnny, He put into practice an idea he had..

And He Made a Difference not only to his place of work but a difference to the people who shopped in the store he bagged for.

Johnny the Bagger.

Recently it has been reported that a breakthrough in Downs Syndrome Treatment in the “research at at Queen Mary, University of London and University College London have been working closely with the team in the United States who have published findings that could eventually lead to the elimination of some common but devastating illnesses linked to Down’s syndrome.” 

Have a wonderful Weekend

 Smile And Pay it forward with a Smile Smile

How do we put the World to rights?

Confucius Sue Dreamwalker

There are many who walk this pathway on our Earth journey, who finds themselves lost. Unable to see a clear path of where their journey is taking them.. As they scramble over the rocks in life, dragging themselves out of the pits of despair, as they get sucked deeper into the mires of debt, drugs, and depression, as their world around them seems to collapse which pulls them ever deeper into the dark forces of negativity.

I see it every day on the streets, as I look into the faces of people who never smile, I see it in the devil may care attitude of some of our youth as they play havoc in a world where adults now seem to fear children for what they are becoming, with their ‘you can’t touch me’ attitude ‘I’m a minor’ and can get away with murder, which some do, and some have..

I look around at what the world in general has become, for the majority the rat race of who can accumulate the most in this throwaway society of food, goods, and that couldn’t care less attitude.

And I despair for the future of our children’s children, as our communities are full of strangers, who view each other with suspicion, who lock their doors behind them, and who dare not look another in the eye, in case they be offended and shout abuse or rob you at knife point.

Cities where we walk by those who stand begging, turning the other way, as we wonder if they are really genuine or do they leave their begging bowl and return to a plush home counting their takings for the day as we distrust each other and their motives..

Where have our Hearts gone?

When did the Care go from our lives?

When did we become strangers to one another?

Photobucket

And what can we do to put the world to rights?

First we need to take a good look at our reflections and put ourselves to rights then our communities will follow.. then our nations, and then our World… A tall order?

Confucius was a wise man when he uttered those words I quoted above..

Well  Today I got out the Mirror yet again.. … Care to join me?

Where would You start?

I know I can change no one other than myself! 

But I will keep sowing the Seeds…

Blessings

Each of us, carries within us the capacity to change the world in small ways for better or worse. Everything we do and think affects the people in our lives, and their reactions in turn affect others As the effect of a seemingly insignificant word passes from person to person, its impact grows and can become a source of great joy, inspiration, anxiety, or pain. Your thoughts and actions are like stones dropped into still waters, causing ripples to spread and expand as they move outward.. I hope that I can send a few ripples out via the web of life, as we each of us weave the threads together... Welcome to my Sanctuary of Peace and Love... May we each spread our Lights around our World....Sue Dreamwalker
