Fearful but Confident

Oct 31st, 2015 Posted in A Spiritual Path | no comment »

When I think of fear I find myself tense and sad; full of all those negative ways that get me stuck, unable to move on

But when I think of confidence in myself I believe that there will always be some fear and I can move around it; sometimes even straight through the fearful event or fear that I will not succeed.
And what is success?
Success in a way is a period of time when you did something that brought you a smile; the task is complete, you finally made it through to the other side of the yin and the yang of life because everything has balance. Balance is that place in the middle of your inner soul where everything is blissful and in harmony.

Finding some happiness

You have to find happiness, you cannot depend on others to make you happy

Reflections of love

Happiness is an internal blissful and joyful energy that comes from spirit. Happiness is also healing.  When you have this special feeling of happiness you feel whole and complete.
Your personal spirit rises above you to let you know there are happy times to embrace that you may be missing. Listen to spirit calling on you to take those steps toward a happy day.

I walked today along a pond. I always wait to hear the soft noises of the pond with its clear water, jumping fish and frogs making their deep and crowing sounding noises.

Stopping Time just for a moment

I want to stop time just for a moment to go back to quiet, nice times in life that bring about peace for me

Circles remind me that treasured moments in time always come back

I wore my mom’s watch for a few weeks; an older one that she had many years ago. The girl at the jewelry shop would not guarantee that the battery she put in it would last because they do not make the battery for this watch anymore.

And you thought they were mindless tasks

I always wondered why my mother swept the driveway when she could have used a blower to sweep the leaves away, and I wondered why she made so many blankets; sitting quietly not even watching her stitches.
They were not just mindless tasks; they were mindful.

When you are mindful, you think about nothing but your current focus; other distractions are let go of and you get back to your flow of the moment.

You are Still There

You can run away from things but deep inside you are still there

And if any emotion overcomes you because you allow it to, you are there, on your own; helping yourself, or not helping. Emotions can be wonderful; they show people how much you care, but difficult emotions such as sadness or anger can stay with you too long and you may need to take a deeper look at yourself; centering on the positive whenever you can. There is much positive to look at in the world, and angry words, feelings or thoughts need to be put aside.
