Quote of the Day – June 13 2012

“The higher the sun ariseth, the less shadow doth he cast; even so the greater is the goodness, the less doth it covet praise; yet cannot avoid its rewards in honours.”
–Lao Tsu

Wow an entry that definitely doesn’t write itself. Feeling the sun energy or perhaps the need for it of late…Definitely a bit of Obscureness…The clouds are in the way. Not that I don’t have an underlying sense of the rightness of it all. Things unfold as they will yet knowing that and feeling it are two different things. Still meditate more and fret less  or as a friend of mine says “Shut up and do your fucking yoga”. Almost always good advice I find…

Fractal clouds glowing
rainbow colours
set on fire by spirit sun

forms morphing
elemental kaleidoscope
the shapes i see
subject of my lens perception
showing me the symbols I need
to carry on…

Quote of the Day – April 13 2012

“Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.”
–Rabindranath Tagore

I know well the clouds that Tagore meant. Running late for a meeting. Having to go after the dog that has once again escaped the yard. Unexpected telephone calls from social workers.. Any one of the things that can be seen as stressors. I really like Tagore’s take on it tho and more and more I see what he means. Even tho any of these things can throw me off my schedule, they can also be seen as adding flavour or colour to the day. The more I adjust my outlook to see them in this way, the more they can be enjoyed rather than be thrown by them. More and more I am getting there.
Blessings, G

And so…
Today my mother went into a hospice. I had been there in Florida for the past week with my family, watching her slowly deteriorate. Now at least she will be made comfortable. Even tho I realize that it is merely the body that dies, a setting aside of clothes that no longer fit and that soon she will be much happier and free of physical pain, saying goodbye or even abientot has been harder, even than I thought.
