The Flowering of Forgiveness

‘Tis always,
It seems,
The Night before
Your only tomorrow,
The last evening
Of our Season of Sunsets
Forever lost and unimagined,
Even in our dreams,
That we come to know
This moment
Is our only possession.

The Horizon
Of such awareness,
Births inner Beauty
Held inviolate within,
And without
compare.
Such a Gift
We find in
The vision
Of early Dawn,
In our brief day
On this Earth.

“Have you ever watched a sunrise
And felt you could not breathe?
What if it’s Him?
What if it’s God speaking?”
– Ronnie C. Freeman. Jr.

You can never arrive
Where you really are,
Be what your Heart
Wants you to be,
Until you know
Who you have truly been,
And that your dreams
Become
You.

Shadows deepening of doubt and despair.

Upon an Altar
Of Innocence
Were we laid.
From Love everlasting
Were we Lovingly
Made.
And there,
By the Grace
Of God,
We may return.

With such awakening,
Is born a Flowering
Of selfless thought,
And Redemption
Through our deeds.

Life
Need not be lived
In the shadows of
Deepening doubt,
Of desperate despair,
But in the Sunlit brilliance
Of the Light
Of your hidden Love.

flowers

Beautiful Flowers planted by the seed of thought and deed.

My Dear Friends,
The path to tranquility
For your fragile mind,
Your very delicate Heart,
Lies through the pages
Of God’s Precious Word.
Each Syllable
Is a gentle step
Toward Home,
To His Heart,
And yours.

Thy word
is a lamp unto my feet,
and a light
unto my path.

– Psalms 119:105

His Soothing Word
Can resonate
In the Soul,
Truly echo
Through the brevity
Of time
As we have
On this Earth.

The Compass of your Heart will show you the way.

“Let Thy goodness
like a fetter
Bind my wandering heart
to Thee”
– R. Huff, B. Darnall, M. W. Smith

No landscape artist that ever lived
Could put upon canvas
Such beauty
As may be found
Hidden
In your Heart.

Don’t let the Sacred Inner Beauty
Escape you.
Remember, my Precious Friend,
That every day with you
Can a Masterpiece be.

After the last bright rays
Of the fading sun
Have turned to gray,
The Dignity of a day
With you,
Basking in
The Beautiful shadow of your Being,
Can continue to be
The Paradise
Of someone’s remembrance,
Someone’s Dream.

reflection

Such Radiance as dwells within.

If it’s cold here
In your Heart,
The fire in your eyes
Can softly burn,
The words you Lovingly speak
Can slowly turn
Another world spinning round and round.
When you think
Of all the Love
Hidden deep inside,
Is it really ever too late
To let Love be our guide?

As you open wide
Your arms in warm embrace
Of another to Love,
Someone deeply in need,
The Gates of God’s Love
Are flung open wide,
And the Love in your Life
Is Heaven
To another in need
Of Hope,
Of the beautiful Flowers
Planted by the seed
Of your thought,
Of your deed.

bird in flight

A Sacred moment you shall never live again.

How is it possible that such Radiance
As dwells within
Can be unnoticed?
Let us rejoice,
That this Miracle of Beauty,
This Heart Divine,
Loving ever thus,
Beats within.

As your Life and your Love
Are transfigured into
The hopes and dreams
Of someone lost
In the space
Between your thoughts,
Your anguished moments,
Of displeasure and pain,
Become
As a hammer
Against cloth.

When somehow,
Sameness is not the same,
If you play
And it’s not a game,
And your dreams
Are filled with regret and pain,
Remember,
The Creative Power
Of all the Love
That dwells hidden inside
Is far more powerful
Than that of destruction.

    Evening Star and Sun is set.

The consuming fire
Of what you come to
No longer cherish,
Of what you have lost,
Cannot compare
To that of Baptism
In the Deep Waters
Of God’s Love.

Every second
You are with your Life,
Is a Sacred moment
You shall
Never live again.

The Compass
Of your Heart
Will show you the way.
It varies not
Far from the Truth.
If you listen,
Lingering long enough,
The path
That lay before you
Will be lit
By the lamp of another,
Holding an Eternal Light
For you.

Then another precious Life
Becomes you,
And the rhythm of the
Living waters
That you are,
Rolls on
Through a deepening River
Of no return,
And into the next
Past,
Which is no longer
Today,
No longer
You.

moon

Another world spinning round and round.

Evening Star
And Sun is set.
Colors
Vivid and bright,
In memories of Life
Lived for another,
In Dreams of the night.

Between
The beats of your Heart
Lies another dimension
Of Love
Unseen.
Between the Sun that sets
And the next sunbeam,
Is the World
In which you will live
In but a Dream.

Life lived well
Is always
For another.

Never walk alone,
Then sleep well
My Friend.

And
Goodnight.

Memories of Life lived through another.

From Examiner.com:

It cannot be said enough;
Movement
helps ease depression symptoms.
We read it study after study,

Most people tend to ignore
that movement helps people
deal with depression more naturally.

Exercise not only helps motivate people
and builds their self-esteem,
it actually helps balance
the chemicals called neurotransmitters
such as dopamine, serotonin and norepinephrine.
Studies suggest that 30 minutes
of moderately intense exercise
five days a week
can reduce depression by 50%.

Colors vivid and bright in memories of Life lived for another.

No matter what type of movement
you take, walking, jogging, dancing,
swimming, aerobics, Yoga
and other forms of martial arts,
movement helps ease
depression symptoms.
.

“Why dose the body
with antidepressants
or force words
out of a person’s mouth
when there are better methods
to treat depression?

 Dance can set people free
on a physical and, especially,
a psychological level.”
– Isabella A. Pericleous

Keeping the mind,
The Spirit
And the Heart
In motion,
Moving ever forward,
For the benefit
Of everyone around you
And every Living thing,
Can place the center
Of your focus in Life
Into another dimension.

And you
Shall no longer be
In sufferance,
For you
Are not there.
You
And your precious Heart
And mind and Soul
And busy
Elsewhere.

You cannot be
In two places
At one time.

How to fight inflammation with food
by  

Too many of people deal with headaches, exhaustion, weight gain and other awful symptoms on a daily basis, but what many of these people don’t realize is that these symptoms aren’t normal.

Our bodies were built to feel amazing every day and the majority of us accept feeling tired, bloated and foggy brained on a daily basis. Furthermore, many of my clients deal with food cravings, mood swings and pain each week and they’re in a constant struggle to get themselves back to feeling “normal” again.

Inflammation can be caused by stress, mold, pesticides, mercury, hidden parasites, bacteria and viruses in our body as well as by eating an inflammatory diet filled with table salt, sugar, white flours, refined vegetable oils and processed foods, all of which lack nutrients our body needs on a daily basis to function optimally.

Here are a few anti-inflammatory foods you can start to incorporate in your daily meals and snacks. Buy a few of these foods each week (Sundays are a great day to stock up) and use them throughout the week in your meals and snacks. You can also bring these foods with you to work to snack on in between meals to keep your blood sugar stable. Get creative and add these foods to your morning smoothie, your afternoon salad and your evening stir-fries or whole grain dishes for extra anti-inflammatory boost.

3 easy ways to get better sleep without drugs

Adequate sleep plays a critical role in the function of our immune system, metabolism, heart function, blood pressure, weight control, in addition to how we learn, comprehend and remember things.

Create a spa-like environment by ensuring your bedroom is the right temperature, cool is always better. Start a humidifier, maybe even one that also creates white noise like Vicks Cool Moisture Humidifier; which will make it easier to breathe and is instantly relaxing. Keep your bedroom clean and organized because sleep can certainly be more challenging in a dirty space. Turn on some spa-type music, keep it very low, and allow yourself to drift away.

Prepare for sleep through yoga and meditation. This may sound like an overwhelming nightly practice but it doesn’t have to be. Since both yoga and meditation are about breath, just taking a few minutes within your spa-like bedroom to sit on your bed, legs stretched out in front of you, to breathe deeply in through your nose and out through mouth will make an incredible difference. Stretching before sleep will also enable your body to relax more quickly.

Shutting down all kinds of the electronic devices in your home at least an hour before your planned bedtime. The bright screens and information overload plays a large role in the sleep-deprived nation we’ve become over the past ten years. If you are struggling to get to sleep and stay asleep, your phone, computer and television could be to blame. Turn everything off and give yourself the quiet time your body deserves.
