Less effort is sometimes better.

This is true with respect to observing our thoughts

and our connection with the Soul.

The less significance we give our thoughts,

the easier it will be to connect

with the deeper parts of ourselves.

…..Richard Carlson

ok, so divine intention is all well and good, but the deeper reaches are accessed through a heavy dose of excitement, inter-connectedness, and a push/pull from the heart and soul……the waters are deep and the nights are long… make a little room for play…

Let me begin by saying that I think there is big difference between ‘nourishing your soul’ and ‘being nourished by your soul.’ We don’t nourish our soul. Our soul nourishes us. We don’t do something to our soul so much as have our soul do something for us. Our challenge as human beings is to open ourselves to receive this nourishment- to rekindle our connection with our spirit, the spirit that is always there waiting to nurture, heal, and direct our lives. To bring out the best in yourself and enjoy your life to the fullest, nothing is more important than learning to open to, and accept, the nourishment of your soul. As you open yourself to your soul, a calming sense of peace and connectedness develops within you. This peaceful feeling deepens your levels of thought, releases the innate healing powers of your body, reminds you to be grateful  for all the gifts of life, and broadens your perspective, so that you can be at peace with the way things are…..Jack Canfield

how to breathe & pierce life….

Peace of mind has nothing to do with the external world; it has only to do with our connection with God. Love really is the answer. We’re here only to teach love. When we’re doing that, our souls are singing and dancing. When we remind ourselves that we are spiritual beings, that life and love are the flame eternal, that’s when our soul is nourished. Nourishing our soul is the recognition of what our purpose is: to love and forgive. It may sound simple, but it isn’t easy. Simplicity is very difficult for a confused mind to understand. The ego wants to make everything very complex. It wants to make the intellect our God. We nourish the soul when we find value in the stillness of the moment, recognizing that the present time is the only time there is. The essence of our being is love, and forgiveness is the key to our happiness……Gerald Jampolsky

  1. When I was little, the county fair came through every Fall. Our parents took us (every parent took their kids). They took us and got tickets for the rides, even though I was scared to death by most of them. My brother, Stephen, was the one who convinced me to go on the ferris wheel. He told me the wheel was magic and that I might even be able to touch a star if I reached high enough and if I didn’t look down. So I didn’t. I stared at the pinwheeling crowd and searched for him. Even when I started to get dizzy or thought I might throw up, the wheel would come around again and there he was. After a while, I stopped thinking about the stars, or even how terrified I was, and instead, I made a game out of finding my brother. I think that’s what home (what love) feels like and memory gives us – the chance (the ability) to come back to the same place and over… touch again the stars we held apart. I love this (obviously), Blue. ~ Always, Bobbie

    • such a sweet tale of purity and intimate heart spaces……like that divine trust, our memories hold what truly matters……held in the spaces in between stars, you are…..may you feel the magic of fireflies Bobbie…..
