like it's so ~nature~

I think I'm quirky here..another form of corny...LOL
Maybe rocks just look like they are a fun nature toy.
I have a bunch around - in and out - the house.
I love heart shape rocks...they aren't perfect yet
very real to the beholder...
All folks don't always see what others see

This is me on a Dream Vacation
and LOOK
no sharks, stingrays, or sea-monsters....!

YES!
Know Space~Know Beauty
hehehe typo~

Rocks .....I sat on a 12 ton rock just a few weeks ago~
A storm was coming~
The winds were lashing the trees like toothpicks~!

I was on a trail and an inner voice called me to a Hilltop~
On the hill was the rock!

If a tree falls I can duck by the rock and the rock will stop the tree~
"The Wind might blow me off this hill!"

The Rock will shelter you from the wind too~

A bolt of Lightning seemed too be heading right at me when it simply stopped in mid-air......

I pondered that for a moment and then the Rain washed me clean.

When the rain stopped and the skies cleared, I looked to the spot the Lightning stopped ......

It was a church steeple on top another hill called Holy Hill.

I was in the safest place I could have been.....

When I walked to the trail where I would have been, I noticed two trees which snapped and pummeled the ground. My body would have been instantly crushed~ Still, I would live for I have been through death and no it is not~

Have you ever thought or even noticed how marvelously rocks balance upon each other, and remain in that position undisturbed for years. If only our life followed this same pattern, "a well balanced life".

My body was no more and yet my Consciousness was still very much alive. I went through a "near-death experiences sometime in 2003. I was connected to everything and there were no you and I's , just One Life which was complete Loving Bliss. I did not really want to leave it but out of the silence I heard this: "If you stay, those you leave behind will experience it as your death."
I then seemed to Will myself back as I remembered children not yet ready for my parting. Compassion for others drew me back into this world. I did not at first understand what had happened but a certain new understanding returned with me. The Illusion of Death holds me hostage no more. The Experience forever changes the perception. How can one believe in death after being alive in death? If I could pass this experience on to everyone, all wars would end. All senseless battles would cease to be. Everyone holding a grudge would drop it at once. We need to reach a certain number to do that though..........and that number is Pi~! Consider that Pi is the constant in every circle equation and the circle signifies Unity. Do you see how important the Great Work is? Do you see the significance of ONE transformed Awakened Being? That is just How important YOU are!

Awesome, Sparrow;

I do believe what you say is true.
So, being Spiritual is better.

What would happen if we stopped
all business and all became Spiritual...?

Over population?

That's probably the side-kick, sort to speak,
of the spoils of war. Less folks more for me
type of thinking.

If we were all Spiritual we'd be living in a Garden of Life....
Like it used to be, or so we could think it was without war.....

We'd all be vegetarians...
Wonder how long folks would last...
Intersting topics maybe for another thread?
Civilization it could be called. : )

How do we define "being spiritual". Up until 2 yrs & 3mths ago, I would not have classed myself as spiritual, that was until I lost my beloved 15 yr old dog Petra. After her death I had beeen willing her to come back to me, pay me a visit, I guess I asked God to send her, then after a few weeks I awoke from my bed one morning after what seemed like a dream then an abrupt awakening, there she was jumping on my bed, she was lively, clean, her coat was white, and so happy to see me as I was to see her, I called out to OH, Petras here, Petras here. Sadly this all happened so quickly. I cant describe how I felt that whole day, but if I describe it as floating in air, I cant go wrong. Since that day I have become spiritual, I believe.

I also asked God that when my Petra was alive, that I used to laugh because however hard I tried I could never get a kiss from her, yet she had so many from me. I asked God that I had a strong need to just feel her body again. After a few mths, again in my sleep, she came again, this time I did not see her face, her head was over my left shoulder, but I felt her warm body and her movements with each living breath. The only diference here, I did not have that same floating happy feeling as previous, in fact the very opposite, I felt sad, almost angry that day, when of course I should have felt happy. I still thanked God, and I still believe.

Sorry, going off the beaten track a little, but does one become spiritual after such an encounter as you did after your life death experience Sparrowhawk..

Over population would no longer be an issue as we would be practicing Sacred Sexual Union, this would limit the births too only Divinely inspired births. Womens periods would also mostly disappear as this form of Union channels the excess sexual energy higher and thus needs not be dispersed through a period. We are not so over populated as one would think. We are just poorly educated and mis-managed. We do not use our resources well and have lost our connection to Mother Earth. Those things would all come back into balance~

Our bodies change as we change our minds from EGO-centered belief(I am this person and this is my story) to Divine-Centered KNOWING(I AM the ENERGY which is Self Aware and part of ONE Totality) We eat lighter and lighter as our Spirit becomes the focal point and can no longer tolerate meat. Some other heavier foods also begin to become difficult to digest and diet is modified accordingly. Sugars, Nuts, .........if a Hummingbird ate nuts it would not stay in the air long!

War would not be as the Inner War is the reason for outer Wars. There are no "right or wrong" sides in war, just "I DEMAND it to be this WAY! ....and I will kill you if you do not agree because I am right and you are wrong" ; both sides believe the same thing, which is part of the Inner war.

We do not need to change the World to achieve this. We only need change our own mis-beliefs by ALLOWING Space in Consciousness to transform us. Then when 3.14.....Pi , is achieved in Awakened Consciousness it works like yeast in bread; a little yeast leavens the whole loaf! This is why it is so important to the Spiritual teachers to even transform just ONE!

I define "Being Spiritual" as simply Being what I am. I define "being unspiritual" as not knowing what I am. I define Awakening as Unspiritual dissolving as Spiritual is resolving from the ashes of the former unspiritual. Which is to say: EGO burns itself up and Divine Consciousness replaces it bit by bit.

Experiences can quicken/shorten the process. The experience did not MAKE me Spiritual, in fact, I do not even really use the term Spiritual except as an aid to understanding. I simply FEEL more alive and centered in Who-What I really am. Each life unfolds its own way no experience is any greater any other. Your experience of your dog is a growing Awareness that she is NOT dead. Her form left, yes, but in Spirit she does not even know what death is. She can still visit you but only when you put aside your body to be with her in Spirit. Yet if you find yourself in danger some day do not be surprised if she seems to appear in form to save the day! She is .....the LOVE of God. Feel her daily and stop saying she is dead. She does not like that~
I am in tune with animals as well. I can feel them...hear them....because we are all ONE and I mean that not as a belief but I KNOW because I dissolved into IT and came back. Words do not do it justice and never can. Petra still has her deep Love for You.......you ARE very special to her.

She is not dead in my eyes. I have her ashes box on a cupboard shelf, the box is kissed and hugged with me speaking to her with either a good morning baby or a good night, she is still very much alive and a part of being in our house, and our other dogs.

Time……



There is a direct relationship between maturity and the unit of time consciousness in any given intellect. The time unit may be a day, a year, or a longer period, but inevitably it is the criterion by which the conscious self evaluates the circumstances of life, and by which the conceiving intellect measures and evaluates the facts of temporal existence.

Experience, wisdom, and judgement are the concomitants of the lengthening of the time unit in human experience. As the human mind reckons backward into the past, it is evaluating past experience for the purpose of bringing it to bear on a present situation. As mind reaches out into the future, it is attempting to evaluate the future significance of possible action. And having thus reckoned with both experience and wisdom, the human will exercises judgement-decision in the present, and the plan of action thus born of the past and the future becomes existent.

Patience is exercised by those individuals whose time units are short; true maturity transcends patience by a forbearance born of real understanding.

Good thought for today Very Happy

Time is one of those things, i try not to notice. I myself tend to think of us all as moving with time, at the same rate. Time to me is the flow to our understanding of our True Selves. And connecting back with our True Source.

♥Love & Light♥

Many Blessings

To Become Free With Directed Creativity





So often in life we can be stuck, without any obvious way out. We try to do our life the way we want it to be, but so much just gets in the way. We slowly recognise that it's ourselves getting in the way of our desires, but that realisation just doesn't seem to be enough to achieve a change. We need access to our own resources, a hand to get to grips with how we can get free and towards how we believe we are. With directed creativity, clarity of thought and insight, we can leave behind limiting ideas and beliefs and define how we want to be in our life and in the world. Being fully resourced is about recognising how our beliefs limit our actions and behaviour, then accessing our own clear ideas of where and how we want to be by defining problems and exploring solutions. We mostly try to solve difficulties by examining past and possible reasons for our situation and uncomfortable emotional states. We try to solve problems from within the problem frame, but great solutions are not going to be found there – that's where we are. A wider view can be more useful; a jump out of the situation, whatever might be the problem. Suddenly a range of solutions can appear, just by getting a bigger frame can help us loose barriers to our joy in life and gain a daily sense of creative direction for ourselves.

Be well

A very original moment in life…



When we are open and ready to undertake a special and very original moment in life, that of individuation, the quests for meaning and true identity, we begin by questioning ourselves. This questioning which we experience will enable us to be free to discover ourselves and be true to ourselves listening to our own voice and being faithful to our essence. The "I" that we thought was lost acquires new dimensions and forms, and with its wings strengthened by the change of feathers we can fly to meet the new unknown being within us. There is still much to question at, but out of happiness... perhaps even with serenity.
