Putting Life Into Perspective.

It was snowing when we travelled up to Scotland

It was snowing when we travelled up to Scotland

Have you ever stopped to think how fortunate we are?

As you walk in your shoes, or drive in your car

Did you ever consider what a privilege it’s been

To travel and enjoy the places you have seen.

~~

Have you ever given thanks for precious gifts of life?

Like a healthy New-born child and a path without much strife

We take many things for granted in our modern world today

Surrounded by our gadgets in our homes that we display

~~

Have we got lost upon our ‘Earth Journey’ here?

Locked into screens of pixels, updating every year

Education at our fingertips, we travel in mega-bites

Each searching from our engines as we take in the sights.

~~

Have you noticed the World is changing and it’s letting us all know?

There is more to life than possessions; it’s time for us to grow

As we ‘Wake-Up’ to the facts, long hidden from our view

The ‘Material’ is being taken, Waking up Me and You

~~

So every loss we feel, is another important part

Every ‘Letting Go’ is a chance for a new start

Each thing removed, is pushing the ‘Great Shift’

As we alter our Perspective, so the Energies can lift..

There is always something that puts life into perspective for us.. I wrote this poem the other evening after shutting down my PC in frustration.. The weather here is lovely today, so I have been busy in the allotments, So lots to share soon on my Gardening blog.. Time is beating me, but then time is but an illusion.. Smile 

I am working my way slowly around all of you.. So if I haven’t arrived yet, those who have left me comments I am working my way through to you one by one..  I will arrive when I am meant to Open-mouthed smile 

In the mean time enjoy a few more photo’s of Scotland.. And there will be a scheduled post for Saturday in the conclusion to The Vision Quest..

Shining Through

This morning I awoke to rain, but this gave me a great excuse to open my box of paints..

Today I used Acrylics and had no idea what I wanted to paint.. I had an angel in mind to start with, then a I kept looking at the butterfly I painted last weekend.. I started with the swirl of bright yellow and just kept going with the flow, adding more swirls and then I saw in my mind a mandala.. It didn’t turn out how my mind had envisioned it.. But the mandala became the butterfly..

The Trees have been taking their fair share of battering’s here in the UK recently with some very stormy weather so I wanted to honour the trees, who listen so patiently to my whispers..

You can see more of my Tree Art and a poem I wrote about trees on my post My Creative Art~ Trees  The first verse reads

oh mighty brothers that reach up high

Your branches swaying in breeze from sky

Tell me as I sit beneath your shade

What wisdom have you for me today….

I wish you all a beautiful weekend..

Take care all of you.

Love and Blessings

Follow your Heart

Butterfly in oils

Butterfly in oils a small Painting I did over the weekend as I experimented with oils.. ( not my favourite medium ) but I am happy with how it turned out. Even though my camera skills need much to be desired :-) 

Butterfly, Butterfly, Dancing on the breeze

You flit through the heavens, and among the trees

You fly through the air, like a leaf upon the wind,

Tumbling and turning, beating your soft wings

~~

The meadow is your haven, with flowers of nectar sweet,

I watch you fly to heaven, while I sit upon my seat.

Your message of transformation, as I let go of old

And I watch your new freedom as I ask to be bold

~~

My sorrows held within me, as again I give a sigh

You hypnotise me with your beauty, as you fly on by

You whisper in my ear, to trust in all that’s good

For your lifespan is so precious, so live it as we should

~~

You never waste a moment, searching for your mate

For time for you is limited, yet here I hesitate.

Teach me to trust and let myself fly free

And push away the dark clouds, and let myself be me

~~

The Daisies are many, gathered all around

Each one pure perfection, pushing through the ground

They nod their heads together, all in unison

Their fragrance on the wind, smiling at the Sun.

~~

Nature at her best, she neither worries nor does toil

She just keeps on growing, and pushing through the soil.

And even when the ground is hard with all the frost

The flowers push on upwards, and nothing is ever lost.

~~

And so my Butterfly, as at last you’re flying free…

Of caterpillar’s drudgery, of munching under tree

I know you hold a lesson for all of us to share

Your wings are made in heaven and are beyond compare.

~~

And when we see your beauty, we’re reminded of all good.

How each can transform our lives, learning how to love.

So flit around the world, and spread your love and light.

For when I see you on my path.. Then I know I’m alright.

 ~~

The above poem I wrote in 2011, I have witnessed many butterflies since the time of writing when I was at a lower ebb in my life. 

We are all of us transforming right now, as we flit through our various stages of evolution.. The Butterfly always is a great reminder to me, that it was once a caterpillar munching among the cabbages, not knowing there was a whole new world beyond the cabbage patch .. 

But it needed to pass through its own stages of evolution before it transformed and flew..It never worried when it spun its cocoon around itself.. It just went with what it’s instincts had taught it to do.. It just went with the flow.. 

I am just going with the flow, and trusting that as we hold the Light of love in our hearts we too can help transform the world..

Keep the light of Love in your hearts

More artwork soon to follow

We Journey On

 

Journey Within..

Come with me on a journey it starts inside my head

Create a place to dwell from all the Fear and dread

Close your eyes and behind them create a perfect vision

Build a garden full of beauty get ready for your transition

~

Sit upon the grass as sky lark sings above

Hold out your hand to feed the many cooing Doves

See the babbling stream as the young fawn drinks her fill

And listen to the Woodpecker’s distant woodland drill

~

Watch the tiny fishes as the light glistens from their scales

You’re now adrift in the ocean, as you watch the Humpback Whales

You listen to their song a lament as old as time

Each breath takes you deeper as your Spirit begins to climb

~

Now you are on a mountain its top all crisp and white

You fly among the Eagles suspended in effortless flight

Thermals take you higher as you travel within its ring

Higher yet you travel, more peace to feel and bring

~

Through the clouds you break into outer-space you speed

Looking back at a Blue Planet which provided all your needs

Weightless and suspended no longer feeling Form

You fly around the heavens exploring each star born.

~

Filled up now with knowledge no mortal Words could speak

You return back to your garden upon your grassy seat

A new sense of Peace surrounds you as you open up your eyes

You can return in an instant, just open up your mind.

Our Minds can create such webs of thought that entrap up within the negative if we are not mindful of being drawn in to the Fear we each hold.. Even the best of us can get caught among the threads of our own thoughts, a lesson well learned recently.

May we all learn to create Peace and Love in our lives. 

Wishing you all a wonderful Wednesday 

And I hope you enjoy this Video and the above poem I wrote.. 

Blessings

Searching for that Perfect Moment.

Trees, the breath of our lungs

Trees, the breath of our lungs~ A walk in Nature’s Peace

Carry on searching and you will find

That perfect moment that peace of mind

You’ll find it among all the places you look

None are within the pages of a book

So many species rely upon our Trees

So many species rely upon our Trees ~Lichen on these small branches, and thousands of insects.

While a book can teach you knowledge unbound

The Peace of your heart there is not to be found

Page after page we turn and can read

But the Peace we all seek first comes as a seed

Life~ a continual cycle of death and rebirth

Life -Nature~ a continual cycle of death and rebirth

 

So long do we lie in the depths of the Dark

Forgetting the power from which we all start

A Spark to kindle from the love we all yearn

Ignited with passion as our hearts start to learn

Catkins

Catkins and Gorse.

An Island we languish alone and afraid

We cut down each other using words as our blades

Doing unto others, we do unto the whole

What we send out we reap back as souls

Gorse too has its thorns, but it still shines its beauty to us

Gorse~ Everyone of us can show our thorns.

 

So we search and we find what was there all along

We just forgot the Harmony of Singing our Song

In Unity we blend, our voices become One

No longer separate, a choir has begun.

Gorse Bush

Gorse~ Despite its thorns it still shines bright.

In tune with Nature you’ll flourish and grow

Reaching for Light you spread out and glow

And that ‘Perfect Moment’, that Peace of Mind

It was always inside you, Seek and Find.

Keep Following the Path

Keep Following the Path to your Heart!
