Tuning In

 

“My brain is only a receiver, in the Universe there is a core from which we obtain knowledge, strength and inspiration. I have not penetrated into the secrets of this core, but I know that it exists.”
― Nikola Tesla

 

Tuning in
and creating
a blank page bleeds potential
in technicolour drops
Touching on dream images
and visions that enter
through the imagination
and manifest through weary fingers
Honour the connection
with each word
and mouse swipe
knowing that work comes through
the artist and not from
the ties to the all
and to the naught
creating form from potential
with gratitude.
— G A Rosenberg

 

Blessings, G

The Present Begins Now

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.”
― Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

Leaving the past in the past each day has been a tough but worthwhile lesson to learn. How easy it seems to let past failures even minor ones build up and bring us down. Realistically we can’t change the past. As I have said many times each moment is the gateway to possibility and despite anything we’ve done up to now, we can only get better. Why does it seem so difficult to jump through this gateway? Is yesterday a quicksand mire holding us to it? Only if we let it, only if we struggle to hold on. No matter how I’ve been in the past. No matter what my weaknesses have been, in this moment I can be the person I wish to be. String enough of these triumphant expressive present moments together and we may actually find that we’ve built beings to be proud of.
Blessings, G

Quote of the Day – January 18 2013

“If you keep telling the same sad small story, you will keep living the same sad small life”
–Jean Houston

 

Time to expand our stories. Let’s change it up so that we become the victors rather than victims and that we win out rather than lose. Once upon a time our stories kept us down. We talked about what oppressed  us and how we could never be free. Then one magickal morning we awoke and our thoughts were changed. We found that we could transform. Every thought beckoned us towards freedom and doors that were shut started to open. Nothing could oppress us without our permission and from that point on we withheld it. People could do what they would but we would not be victims. We became empowered and reborn and live each day to the fullest.
Blessings, G

Quote of the Day – December 28 2012

“We travel, some of us forever, to seek other states, other lives, other souls.”
― Anaïs Nin

Tho most times its our soul that we seek in the other and at times the journey becomes a bit more challenging than we expected. My son Zev and I are on a trip to visit relatives back east and we have run afoul of a snowstorm in Montreal. It’s an interesting feeling being at the mercy of other people’s scheduling and choices and other people’s behaviours and it really brings home how the only thing that we can really affect is how we react to everything. I feel fortunate in that Zev has become a young man at least as adaptable and accepting when things get a bit rough as I am and now we are safely ensconced in a room for the night ready to continue tomorrow. Would we be here even if we had argued and fought and complained the whole way? Probably and eventually but it helped to have someone else realizing that we needed to keep our sense of selves and senses of humour intact through it all.
Yet in my son, I not only see reflections of myself and my partner but also the man he is fast becoming and I feel proud.
Blessings, G
