Wild and wondrous ocean,

Your ebb and flow calm me.

Just a walk on the beach

And I’m renewed and free.

 

As I go along the shore,

Please continue the pace

For your touch feels

Like a warm embrace.

 

Why is it so?

What causes this?

It’s because we’re all One

With All That Is.

 

Remember each time

You walk on my shores.

You’ll be cleansed

With each wave that roars.

 

Walk my shores often.

Feel my loving embrace.

You’ll be renewed

And in a new place.

Heavenly Father above, let me give a prayer of love.

 

For we know not

The time or place

When we’ll be called home

Finishing our race.

 

Let us be peaceful

Calm and wise.

Let us be happy

All of our lives.

 

For you have given us

Many lessons to learn:

A chance to abide

And a chance to yearn.

 

Without those lessons

Hard won and true

We finally realize,

We’d be nothing without you.

 

Amen.

Happiness O’ happiness.

How do I find?

Remember my dears

It’s all in your mind.

 

It’s there all along

Waiting for you.

Just open your eyes

And life will renew.

 

It just takes

A new look

As each chapter unfolds,

Much like a book.

 

We must learn to observe

With new-found eyes

And therein my dears,

Is the secret to life.

Wondrous God above,

When will I see the one I love?

Be held in her arms so tight

That all the world seems right.

 

I’ll patiently wait for that day

Nary a thing will get in the way

For she loves me

And I love her.

 

Never a time will we be apart.

Souls and bodies together at last.

No one can break us apart

For we are one - heart to heart.

 

This path we have chosen

Is treacherous and long

Just to prove to others

This is where we belong.

Big life changes are often prompted by a “burning desire.” You see, we humans often require a virtual kick in the head to get us going on our path. This path or journey as it’s sometimes called, is necessary so we can learn and grow as part of the human experience.

 

But what exactly is a burning desire and what does it look like?

 

First of all, a burning desire is that thing that ignites you, puts a fire in your soul, gets you off your butt, and causes you to start taking concerted action in your life to improve it. This could be looking in the mirror and seeing an overweight and out of shape body and saying to yourself, “It’s time to do something about it.” It could be waking up drunk again, amidst your own vomit, resulting in a job loss or your spouse leaving. It might be shooting up to get high while you live under a bridge, homeless and broke.

 

In other words, it is your rock bottom. Rock bottom looks different to everyone, so it’s best not to judge just when/if someone else will hit their rock bottom. The key is being aware that you have hit yours and taking that burning desire within you to do something about it. Using that energy to push yourself forward, to push through the pain, to push through the disappointments, whatever it takes – to get your life going in a better direction!

 

We have all seen examples of this type of burning desire and what it does to the life of the person affected.

 

But another way to ignite a burning desire is less known. This way is with the influence of another person. Sometimes we meet someone special, such as a soul mate, and we are driven to do things we would not ordinarily do. Wild things. Crazy things. Certifiable crazy things. Yep, that is what a burning desire lit by the passion of another being can do!

 

Others won’t understand. They will be perplexed. They will wonder: how can that person leave their spouse, quit their ‘good’ job, move, or sell their home? They don’t understand why a person will do whatever is necessary, regardless of cost or difficulty, and even the perception of others.

 

What has occurred is someone is experiencing a “burning desire” lit by passion.

 

Why is it important to understand these phenomenon? Simply put, it is for your own growth and understanding.  You will undoubtedly know when you hit your personal rock bottom, but you might not be aware of the affect another could have on you to spur or light a burning desire within you. You also might not be aware that you could be the spark lighting another person’s burning desire.

 

So be aware, keep your light shining. Serve as an example for others. Take the high road. Do your best. Others are watching. Others are learning. For one of them, you might just be the light which ignites their burning desire!

The cure for loneliness,

The cure for illness

Is a bit of kindness.

It will make all the difference.

 

Think of your brother

Old and worn.

Think of a woman

Filled with scorn.

 

Think what a difference

A small bit would mean.

Just a drop of kindness

Added to the scene.

 

We don’t know

What others may think

How their trials could

Disappear in a blink.

 

For all it takes

My dear friend

Is a bit of kindness

One can easily send.

 

So be intentionally.

Spread the joy.

All will benefit

With a life to enjoy.

 

God wants us to learn

To be good men and good women.

Part of the path to

Our own slice of heaven.

 

For without each other

We are nothing alone

Just a life without meaning,

No sense of home.

 

 

But together, we strive.

A new sense of well-being.

Our connectedness rediscovered,

Life has new meaning.

 

Keep trying my friends

One day all man will know

The feeling of togetherness,

The feeling of flow.

 

It all starts with kindness

So do your part.

Send a bit to each other

Straight from your heart.

I want to see a past life snippet.

 

(Spirit Guides:)

Roses are red

Violets are blue

Why should we do

Anything for you?

 

(Author:)

‘Cause I’m made

For greatness

As are we all.

Now please go ahead

And answer the call.

 

(Spirit Guides:)

Your man is an Indian -

Wise and true.

You are his woman -

Treasured, but blue.

 

Your origins were different

From his wise ways.

White folks were your parents

Living the American way.

 

Your children were many

Much to their dismay.

Lonely and in isolation,

You lived out your days.

 

For once your man gave you the children

He took his own life.

Not really on purpose

But to save his poor wife.

 

His journey was short

But painfully true

That we’re all related and

Actions of other do affect you.

None of us want to encounter bumpy roads, but that is when we grow. That’s where we develop faith. That’s when the Divine teaches us important lessons.

 

Learn to appreciate the bumpy roads, for they shape you into the person He wants you to become.

 

Without the bumpy roads, you won’t understand God’s grace. You won’t treasure your loved ones deeply. You won’t appreciate God’s abundance. You aren’t thankful for your good health.

 

See how God uses bumpy roads to teach you lessons? Remember this the next time you encounter bumpy roads.

 

We all have times of trouble. It’s how we respond to them that makes all the difference.

 

Do we lash out at others in blame? Do we try to solve the issue or cave into the new demands? Do we treat the affected parties with kindness and grace? Do we accept our part in the situation? Do we use this unfortunate incident to learn and grow?

 

How we respond to troubled times is a reflection of our own growth, a measure of our integrity and strength. It is a reflection of who we are as a person.

 

A wise person uses their times of trouble as a steppingstone to a more evolved life.

 

How do you handle troubled times? Is your reaction in the best interest of yourself and others?

 

Think about this the next time you experience troubled times.

Thank you, God for the blessings

Bestowed on me.

Keep me safe and warm

And mindful of thee.

 

May worries and strife

Slip away like fine wine

Not even noticed,

Ever so sublime.

 

Let me remember

Come one and all.

That we’re related.

Let’s heed the call.

 

Someday, sometime,

In a faraway place,

We’ll all come together and

Be held in God’s grace.

 

Treasure the memories.

Treasure the path.

Let us not forget

All that we have.

 

Thank you for the blessings

Dear God above.

Let me remember

Your mercy and unwavering love.
