Spirit lights

Those who have learned to carry their own light no longer fear the darkness. They know it eventually reveals their strength in living color.

Bullet Train to nowhere…

July 9th 2016….Bullet train to nowhere was my first blog post, and today, nearly three years later I have reworked the original post to a subject that is still relevant. Not just for myself but also to many others I found out during that time. Just like John Muir once said “Thousands of tired, nerve shaken, over civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountains is going home, that wilderness is a necessity”, I have learned that we are all one when it comes to the search of something more.
Much has happened since I first wrote this post, but life will always be work in progress and a process that never stops.
I would hope that my writing has evolved since the start of this blog and that this blog post will become a part of my book someday that deals with the search for something more and my own experiences.
Here is a sneak peak. Enjoy 💙

Rhapsody Bohème

Weeks passed since the “Nirvana incident”.

My mind frequently wandered back to that day in a restless effort, trying to figure out what happened on that stormy afternoon. Something changed, and I couldn’t deny that I felt different. Different in the sense of many levels, and different in ways I couldn’t explain. No matter what, something always grabbed me, returning me back to the memory, while replaying the details of starring out of the window. I wasn’t sure what happened, and the information pouring in was almost overwhelming. My mind was working overtime, and contradicting enough, the chaos felt good in strange ways, bringing the knowledge of change. I can’t tell you why this felt so comforting, it just did. In hindsight I realize that much was amiss prior to reaching that point, and still, there was no way to pinpoint what it was that had gone astray. While on…

Big and small moments

There will be moments big and small in your life, some of which will leave you feeling pretty small in the great big theme of things. Some moments will be very painful that will change your entire world in a matter of minutes. These moments will change you. Let them make you stronger, smarter, and kinder. But don’t you go and become someone that you’re not. You are not a victim. When it hurts – observe. Life is trying to teach you something. Cry. Scream if you have to. Then you straighten out that crown and keep moving. The choice is yours to grow or to be defined by your experiences.

The ancient ways

Our soul always has a way of knowing and our soul purpose has been decided since ancient times.

Somewhere, deep in your memory, you know the ancient ways.

This is why you find yourself drawn by a deep seeded urge.

An urge so powerful that you don’t even question it, or fight it.

You long for it!!!

A little cuteness

Just a little cuteness to start your day with this little rascal that stole some of my Chex mix.

I truly have missed seeing all the critters such as this one over the past 10 month while being here in Germany. Believe me, there are critters here too, but they are far not as cute as this little guy, and the ones here were stinging and biting me, leaving big, itchy and often painful marks that are still visible month later. Simply incredible and it won’t be a thing I will miss.

I won’t miss the humidity either, although even there was something good to be found, and I wasn’t in need of a moisturizer at all. My skin looked good without and had a natural glow. This will change when I return to my dry desert landscape. I have to say that allergies where at a minimum too, and where I needed daily eye drops multiple times throughout the day in the states, I haven’t used any at all here. It’s pretty incredible given that it was one of the worst years for allergies.

As with everything there is always good and bad, give and take, push and pull. The trick lies is picking the things that serve us best and incorporate them I to our daily lives as best as we can.

I lied and said I was busy.

I was busy; but not in a way most people understand.

I was busy taking deeper breaths.

I was busy silencing irrational thoughts.

I was busy calming a racing heart.

I was busy telling myself I am okay.

Sometimes, this is my busy, and I will not apologize for it.

Learning curb

I’ve learned a lot this year.

I’ve learned that there are things that go wrong that don’t always get fixed or get put together the way they were before.

I’ve learned that some broken things stay broken, and I’ve learned that you can get through bad times and keep looking for better ones, as long as you have people who love you.
