An Introduction: To Beach Walk Reflections.

Here is a brief interlude, while I gather yet more seeds of my own… Enjoy!

Many of you here on WordPress, can remember our dear friend Frank, who for many years brought joy over at A Frank Angle. He decided it was time for a fresh perspective, so in February of this year he decided to write his last post there and begin a new adventure.

I am pleased to announce that Franks New Blog, called Beach Walk Reflections is now Launched. Frank always has an angel on life, and in this new adventure he reflects on life as he takes his daily walks. And for those who are lucky to walk on the beach, or anywhere for that matter, know how calming and energising those walks can be.

Any walk into Nature connects Mind, Body and Soul. Walking allows our thoughts to flow, our minds to clear, as we contemplate life. And for that short moment we forget our problems, as we mull over our worries, as we put life and its meaning into perspective. So dear WordPress family, I hope you will join Frank, get to know him, and his thoughts, for I know you will not be disappointed.

Franks first post speaks of Seeds, and those who know me, also know how seeds are such an important part of my life, as I plant seeds in my garden and plant seeds of thought that allow our consciousness to grow.

Allow Frank to plant some seeds into your life, where you can share the reflections of life with him. And I just love this paragraph as he writes~

People are hidden seeds waiting to become viable vessels of knowledge. Because every seed has the potential for a significant result, seeds are a symbol for the potential that is in each of us for a positive future – a power of hope and possibility. Teachers hope to plant a seed in students – a seed that develops over time into something valued by others and society – their role in cultivating humanity.

So Please join me in welcoming Frank to his new Blog Home, Beach Walk Reflections. Frank’s first Walk is below.. Enjoy.. And Please comment on Frank’s blog to let him know how you enjoyed his walk.

I like walking on the beach. It is good for the mind, body, and soul – and refreshing on my feet.

Ever think about seeds? They seem so simple at a glance – even on closer examination. We typically think of a hard, thin outer shell with a softer inside. 

On the other hand, this seemingly plain object is the beginning of something new – something beautiful – something useful – a green plant that can be as simple as grass or are grand as a large tree.

Earth’s annual regeneration of seeds for release (many in the fall) – possibly covered by winter snows – yet ready for renewal in the spring so the cycle can repeat – all this with its goal of perpetuating the species.

I think of the farmer preparing the land before planting the seeds. Whether scattering the seeds randomly or planting them in straight rows with distinct spacing, time delivers something that belongs to all of us – bountiful crops and flowers. 

As I walk, trees are sparse – only found on the grounds of some condominiums – although they are naturally found a short distance away from this beach. I think about a forest. Somewhere in that forest’s history, there was a time of one tree – the first tree. One tree that came from a seed. From that one tree came other trees – each coming from a seed.

I think about the sizes and shapes of seeds – from the tiniest orchid seed to a type of coconut containing the largest seed – shapes as squares, oblong, angular, triangles, round, egg-shaped, bean-shaped, kidney-shaped, discs, and spheres. Some seeds with lines and ridges – others perfectly smooth – plus in a variety of colors, and some even speckled.  

A seed has three components – an outer protective coat, the embryo for growing into a new plant, and the food source giving the embryo and young plant its initial food source for growth – all aspects for increasing a chance for survival.

Ever notice how leaves sprout early from a seed? Yes, leaves for producing food for the youthful, growing plant because the initial food source is small. 

Seeds hold the potential to produce something new because they contain hope and promise for something new. But not all plants use seeds for reproduction. For instance, mosses or ferns do not  – but seed plants are the ones that dominate the plant world. 

This causes me to think about our fertility – that is, the seeds within us. The promises that we hold that can produce a bountiful yield.

Interesting that the sperm of human males are called seeds, but in the plant world, seeds are something produced after the sperm fertilizes the egg.

Seeds are mobile, so they must have adaptations to move them around – a method of dispersal. Some have wings to be carried by the wind. Some have barbs, burrs, or hooks to attach to fur, feathers, or even human clothing to be dropped elsewhere. Some are buoyant so moving water can transport them. Others are surrounded by fleshy fruit that will be eaten, therefore the seeds can be exposed and deposited elsewhere for potential growth. 

I remember the large oak trees at my previous home. Each producing a bountiful supply of acorns – but not the same number each year. Each acorn with a coat, an embryo, and food supply. Each acorn is the potential for a new oak tree. However, all those acorns from one tree – a culinary feast for squirrels preparing for winter – so I wonder how many of all those acorns will yield their acorns in time. 

Seeds are that structure we plant in fertile soil and associate with terms as vigor, viability, dormancy, and germination. Seeds are also a source for food, oils, cooking ingredients, flavorings, jewelry, and even deadly poisons.

Besides a simple design yielding a complex adult, the seed is also a useful metaphor.

People are hidden seeds waiting to become viable vessels of knowledge. Because every seed has the potential for a significant result, seeds are a symbol for the potential that is in each of us for a positive future – a power of hope and possibility. Teachers hope to plant a seed in students – a seed that develops over time into something valued by others and society – their role in cultivating humanity.

Seeds are the ideas coming to us from thinking. The something that initiated a thought process that leads to personal action for improving life. The seeds of discovery lie in the knowledge of determination through the human spirit.

I think about how each of us has a bright side and a dark side – the good seeds and the bad seeds. Seeds are a symbol for laying the groundwork for future development as planting the seed – but some use planting the seed for promoting negative feelings or a downfall.

Religions rely on the seeds of faith while politics prefers manipulating the seeds for selfishness.  

A heart contains seeds of love that are waiting to sprout a new life with that special someone.

I think about how entrepreneurs use “seed money” for starting a new business. I also remember during my youth using “bird feed” or “chicken feed” as a term for a small amount of anything – something paltry or minuscule in amount.

Seeds – that simple, interesting, incredible, and successful biological design found in nature that plays a large role in human life. I don’t recall what triggered thinking about seeds on this day, but it has been an interesting mental journey and exercise as I walk. After all, I like walking on the beach because it is good for the mind, body, and soul – and refreshing on my feet.

Creation! ~In Motion

We set our our Blue Prints.

We set out our Blue Prints.

Creation ~  in Motion..  

We are born with amnesia, forgetting details of that which were before. We follow the outlines of that which is laid down for us to follow via our parents, traditions and our ancestors.

Layer upon layer we build our form- through aeons our memories remembered then forgotten as we merge, blend and moulding ourselves via our cultured beliefs. Conforming within the boundaries of Fearfulness.

Cat Pose the base lines

As we begin to build through layers upon layers

Down through the ages we mix the pigments, fragments of dust that layer our perceptions, beliefs, ideas which outline the parameters of our reality. Creating altered Ego of self within the duality of our existence.

Cat pastel starting out

Empty hollows, we often do not see that which stares us in the face.

Layering, hiding that which was. Disguising our mistakes, creating that which we imagined as truth. Seeds of Knowledge scatted, extracted, altering codes within our true selves. Experimenting, sabotaging DNA structures of Genius.

 

 

Standing Cat

Light and shade are both needed within the mix

We plunged deeper, not seeing, Eyes and hearts empty, void, forgotten vessels only. Corrupted by desire, pleasure seeking, senses aroused. We forgot our creation was unique for our progression. So we add yet more layers of colour in our attempts at disguise who we are. 

Wise Cat

Life is given and held within the Light  of our Seeing..

Each hue a subtle blend adding both light and dark to the mix. We travel back and forth across the Page of Life and Death, each stroke adding richness. Yet each incarnation etching deeper into the page of memories of that which cannot be undone, only healed. As each cycle completes its present course we seemingly become stuck within the lures of our own making.

Cat Pose Completed

It is said a Cat has 9 lives, Have you ever wondered how many you have lived?

Only after many life times and much learning that shapes our skills through patience and perseverance do we develop those gifts that we possessed all along. For they were there from our conception, but we just couldn’t ‘See’ them for our Eyes were empty, blinded to the truth..

Our Eyes are now opening to the Light that is igniting the sparks of memory within which brings us to life. As we Re-awaken to all we are and ever have been within our Spiritual Creation of Oneness…

Sleepy Cat

Another creation, I did not see the heart shape until later.. Now is the Time to open our Hearts

 

The Future Generations

The Future Generations Learning and growing from our examples..

May we each learn to spread the Light and Wisdom to our younger generation and May we pass on the Wisdom we ourselves have learnt..

The Cat:

Who invites us to explore our inner and outer realms, of Light and Dark, Have we the patience and courage to explore and heal from the inside out?  Totem can be found Here 

The Owl: 

Who invites us to explore and find the truth behind reality..  Totem can be found Here

Which way are your Emotions Blowing the world winds?

The Buddhists say there are 8 winds,

There are Gain and Loss,

Praise and Ridicule

Credit and Blame,

and

Suffering and Joy.

If you aren’t aware of them they will blow you away like dry leaves in an Autumn Breeze

For example, When someone praises you, and that tastes sweet like Candy in your mouth you are blown away by the Winds of Praise.

~~~~~~~

One Day in ancient China a young man thought he had become enlightened.

He wrote a Poem to his Master about how he was not blown away by the 8 winds.

Then he sent it to his Master who lived three hundred miles up the Yangtze River

When his Master read the Poem he wrote

Fart, Fart

On the bottom of the poem and sent it back.

When the young man received his Masters reply and the more he read his reply the more he got upset.

At last he decided to visit his Master.

In those days, a three-hundred-mile trip up the Yangtze River was a very difficult journey

As soon as he arrived, he went straight to his Master’s temple,

Why did you write this?” he asked bowing.

“ Doesn’t the poem show that I am no longer blown about by the 8 winds?”

You say that you are no longer blown by the eight winds” replied the Master.

But two little Farts blew you all the way up here”..

I couldn’t resist this little story to make you think about the small things in life that often get us huffing and puffing.

It puts our lives in perspective when you see the Bigger Picture of what many are facing in our world today..

What really needs to change?

And which way are you making the Wind blow?

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
