Why is it so difficult to forgive? Because the Ego is wounded. It wants to be right and for others to be wrong. But there is no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’. Both parties are simply on either end of the one line of truth, and just like the Tug of War rope, you can only be victorious by bringing the other down. There is another way! What would happen if you just let go of the rope? Agree to disagree and end the pointless tussling to and fro.
Take me and shape me in your image, Lord.
Carry me and mould me
never let go of me…
…Shower me in the heavenly rays of Your Divine Perfection!
Gossamer Wings and Squeals of Delight
Faerie rings where nature sings
Its joyful call to play
Sandalphon’s strings are played
Within this woodland sphere of blue
Nymphs and sprites and flames so bright
Frolic and spin, alive in the night.
Gossamer wings flit to and fro
And squeals of delight permeate the site:
This sacred sphere, this magical sight
The woods are alive with Faeries tonight!
We all put on masks in our lives, sometimes several: professional, religious, familial, neighbourly and so on. We like to try and control how others will see us, don’t we? Keep this in mind when interacting with people today, especially those you find ‘challenging’. Try to see behind their mask to reach a greater level of understanding.
The Colours of my Mind
Do not pity me if my eyes are sealed shut to the outside world.
For the realm behind these shutters is a kaleidoscope of beauty.
I sit on a lotus blossom in my mind, cast adrift in ecstasy
in a timeless space where joy is pink and green
and every colour in between.
Where beauty is an endless emoticon.
I am submerged in this cosmic bliss. I am this celestial pulse.
Would that you could see the beauty within me
and feel every colour in my heart!
Prise open the eyes of your Soul and discover the beauty that you own.
