Looking Within and Finding Yourself


Wisdom.jpg

It’s been an interesting morning. always one to delve deep, I have been researching Knowing Yourself, warts and all.

Online personality tests took up a good portion of my morning.

“To know thyself is the beginning of wisdom.” This famous quote is often attributed to Socrates. But what exactly do you know when you “know yourself?”

Interesting blog on the subject.

The Power of Nightmares


IMHO.

Power_Nightmares_Creation
It is not Religion as the media would have you believe. The U.S.A. uses religion to motivate the “national religious passions” and they do an excellent job of it.

The Name of this Destructive scenario is Politics and Power ~ Fictitious Media reports propagate Fear in the

majority of persons ~ Those with the darkest imaginations have the most Power.

The War on Terror~The Fear of a Future with impending Doom, an imagined Future.

LIES!

There was No weapons of mass destruction in IRAQ.

There were no secret caves of elaborate resources in Afghanistan.There was no Al-Qaeda before 9-11.

The Wars began.

Which resulted in an overwhelming loss of humankind.The Killing massacre of innocent children and persons fighting for their beliefs.

You never see any Politicians, Priests, Popes or otherwise religious entities in the War Zones. Ever thought  about that ? They make The Rules don’t they ?

9-11. What do you believe ?

Who was really responsible ?

Do you have Faith in our Government ?

This a must see. You may believe differently afterwards.

This is an PNG file and works great in emails on white background. It is floating. Here, not so. It has a WHITE Background and BOX around it.

I received a message in a dream last night. I was in the shallow Mangroves at Snipes Point. It was a beautiful day. The skies were blue and the bellowing clouds seemed to speak too me. I kept hearing the words~Time and Out.

So, I am heeding the advice.

Be Back Soonish I am sure Smile

  • UPDATE

This is an PNG file and works great in emails on white background. It is floating. Here, not so. It has a WHITE Background and BOX around it. I do not like the BOX. My WordPress THEME (iTHEME2 THEME) used to have the option in customize to make it Light or Dark. White on black, or black on white. Now it is just the dark. I never cared for the light but it would make the transparencies pop more. It’s my favorite theme since I made it my own. So, I do not want to change it.

I am really hating these border crossings

I am so glad I am able to post this wonderful and inspirational video.

Discovering Peace During Dark Night of Soul

She made it out of the Shadows. She is so at Peace.

I was looking for a specific photo that she had shared with me. She had asked what I thought when I looked at it and I said~

“A contagious smiley smile~ shining a hand held torch.Tentacles of new life buds of hope, coming through the shadows.”

I have been designing photo’s with my own sayings and this was perfect.

Her latest take on that Dark Night of Soul.

With her permission I posted this on my Youtube after she deleted her account.

Moving through Darkness
The Places We Go

Often it takes something major to wake us up as we struggle to maintain an illusion of control.

In life, most of us want things to go to the places we have envisioned ourselves going. We have plans and visions, some of them divinely inspired, that we want to see through to completion. We want to be happy, successful, and healthy, all of which are perfectly natural and perfectly human. So when life takes us to places we didn’t consciously want to go, we often feel as if something has gone wrong, or we must have made a mistake somewhere along the line, or any number of other disheartening possibilities. This is just life’s way of taking us to a place we need to go for reasons that go deeper than our own ability to reason. These hard knocks and trials are designed to shed light on our unconscious workings and deepen our experience of reality.

Often it takes something major to wake us up, to shake us loose from our ego’s grip as it struggles to maintain an illusion of control. It is loss of control more than anything else that humbles us and enables us to see the big picture. It reminds us that the key to the universe lies in what we do not know, and what we do know is a small fraction of the great mystery in which we live. This awareness softens and lightens us, as we release our resistance to what is. Another gift gleaned from going to these seemingly undesirable places is that, in our response to difficulty, we can see all the patterns and unresolved emotional baggage that stand in the way of our unconditional joyfulness. Joy exists within us independently of whether things go our way or not. And when we don’t feel it, we can trust that we will find it if we are willing to surrender to the situation, moving through it as we move through our difficult feelings.

We can take our inspiration from any fairy tale that finds its central character lost in a dark wood, frightened and alone. We know that the journey through the wood provides its own kind of beauty and richness. On the other side, we will emerge transformed, lighter and brighter, braver and more confident for having moved through that darkness.
