Perceptions

~ Living genuinely is an easier endeavor in the company of and in accordance with nature. Wouldn’t grace obtained on a mountain top in the arms of nature’s bounty be much more easily maintained? Life would become an elevated ritual. Human perception decides whether it be problem, challenge, merely daily existence, or a heavenly gift.

Our perceptions are the builders of structure. And the ammunition that brings them down. ~ cj

Indivi-duality

What are you in the scheme of things?

A pair of arms and a pair of legs…

A salesman or a school teacher…

A doctor or a nurse…

A truck driver or a builder…

A designer or an artist…

A mother or a father…

A child or a friend…

If we become a musician or a dictator is that our definition?

A janitor or a president…

A fisherman or a paver…

A laundress or a furniture maker…

A farmer or a lawyer…

A therapist or a racer…

An Olympic entry or a cook…

An insurance agent or an accident victim…

If an individual becomes a soldier and no one morns their death, is the fight worth it? Is the war ever really won?

A junkie or a saint…

A robber or a minister…

A baker or a shop keeper…

A veterinarian or a butcher…

A policeman or a specialist…

An actress or a drunk…

What defines us really?

A cat or a dog…

A chicken or a frog…

An illusionist or a hooker…

A dancer or a paraplegic…

A biochemist or a politician…

A cancer patient or a yoga instructor…

A good diet or a good day…

When is enough really enough? If the earth could speak, what would it say? If we humans don’t know the answer are we then defined as uncaring or idiots?

A conservationist or hunter…

A democrat or republican…

A reaper or a sower…

An oil Barron or unemployed…

A demolitions expert or a banker…

A litter bug or a miner…

How would you define yourself, from your heart or your soul? From your acts or the sum of your deeds?  Who is keeping score?

Understanding will come when we no longer allow our minds to keep ourselves separate from everyone and everything that exists. Once we realize we are one with all creation, we will understand we all have a singular definition and find our true nature. ~ cj

 

Sun, Laughter, & Love

Sun, laughter, and love are potent medicine for most of life’s ills. ~ cj

Sisters

~ If we would all feel the connection, love, and tolerance that most families do…oh, what a wonder humankind would experience. ~

Journey’s end

~My connection to family, and friends does not end with their passing. My faith, my dreams, and my memories tell me otherwise. Though our paths no longer coincide in this moment our spirits are joined for eternity.~ cj

True Teaching

~True teaching happens when knowledge is shared through example and passion. The student learns not by being told how to think but instead deriving their own conclusions and making confident choices.~ cj

Share prayer

~We are all one spirit of the creator. May we all link souls to create a world of love and union with the earth, so that we may live in a domain of compassion, understanding, and mindful-relations. By feeling our connection to all things, we are not bound, we are freed.~cj

Bliss

I love this so much even though it wasn’t written by me it’s a post….

Arise and drink your bliss for any where you live is holy. ~ William Blake

Passion

~Passion is the strongest motivator, so I write and I am.~cj

The flavor of travel

~My journey is honey sweet, a bit salty, cinnamon spicy, and habanero hot. I don’t know where it’s going but it sure tastes good and what a kick.~cj

Where's my backpack?

Romancing the planet; a love affair with travel.

Ageless Bohemian

Ask her what she craved and she'd get a little frantic about things like books, the woods, music. Plants and the Seasons. Also Freedom.
