Meandering~Take10


I will blow on my dandelion extra softly so all the seeds blow my wish ever true true.

Day three of NO Smoking.
I so want to be a Quitter.

Cigarette smoking aggravates liver functioning.

“Even the best fall down sometimes” from How Six Songs Collide” My heart aches for anyone in any realm of pain. Mentally, emotionally physically.

Pain is the worse of all malady’s.

This Wheel’s on Fire
Bob Dylan

If your memory serves you well
We were going to meet again and wait
So I’m going to unpack all my things
And sit before it gets too late
No man alive will come to you
With another tale to tell
But you know that we shall meet again
If your memory serves you well
This wheel’s on fire
Rolling down the road
Best notify my next of kin
This wheel shall explode!
If your memory serves you well
I was going to confiscate your lace
And wrap it up in a sailor’s knot
And hide it in your case
If I knew for sure that it was yours
But it was oh so hard to tell
But you knew that we would meet again
If your memory serves you well
This wheel’s on fire
Rolling down the road
Best notify my next of kin
This wheel shall explode!

Watched the Movie and now am watching my old-time favorites streaming on Netflix. I remember when people called me Edina.

OM~A Poem I wrote

Sometimes
Like now I get up, it’s 4 am. Because I can
Sometimes
I stay in bed all day under cover so too speak, turn the phones off and the messenger too, because I feel like it and I can
I put on my night shades and pretend I am in a deep, dark and mysterious cave, I am in my world, my sanctuary
Sometimes
I feel drawn to a full moon on a clear night and look up in wonderment at how bright it is
Stars twinkling off and on like a night switch in the sky
Sometimes
I greet the morning sun as it comes out to play and the moon fades away
Sometimes
I take my shoes off and ride to the beach. I park and walk, feeling the warm sand drift through and in-between my toes
and Listen to the music in my mind
Sometimes I go to the bridge and look into my reflection in the water
I talk to the ripples cascading over the stones
Sometimes
I get melancholy and regret not asking my beloved parents, grandparents questions I can never know the answers to…
they are gone, into the mist, around the bend
Sometimes
I dwell on too many things and know everything has reasons we know not of…
Sometimes
I feel the unconditional love of my animals more than the love of a human heart
and ask WHY?
Sometimes
My dreams are so real, I don’t want to wake
Sometimes
I see the injustice in our world
and ask what makes a wrong ever seem right
Sometimes
I see the simplicity of life
other times I see the strife
they both have IF”S
If we don’t Listen, we can not hear
If we don’t look, we can not see
If we don’t try, we never know
The Lightness of just being
and the “OM” in sOMetimes

Need more mint leaves.

Card of the Day ~ Six of Swords

The mental stress that you have been dealing with over the past week are beginning to lift and fade out of your life. Things are shifting because of your proactive stance and seeing these situations through to completion. Each and every situation always will have a beginning, middle, and ending. Challenges and blessings cycle in and cycle out. Enjoy the next few weeks where many of the current concerns will be a thing of the past, remember this when you are in the thick of things that eventually this too shall pass. If we embrace this understanding that all does pass, then we do not need to suffer as much as we do in the present moment.

I asked her how it felt to be a great-grandmother.
With a twinkle in her eye, she said to me, “I have always been a GREAT-grandmother, dear.”

C. m ART z  2015 “Even the best fall down sometimes” from the song “How Six Songs Collide”
The song expresses how events that occur in our lives do not always appear to be fair or even make sense ?

Silent Echo
You don’t make a lot of noise, but when you talk, people listen. You have a quiet wisdom about you that people respect and admire. Your mysterious nature pulls people in.

Something’s need forgetting. I forget things all the time, and find it odd that I remember things that feel embedded like cement in my mind.

Until the next time folks

Acknowledging Our Pain from ~OM


Acknowledging Our Pain
Rescuing the Rescuer

Sometimes the motivation to help others may be an extension of a deep desire to heal a wounded part of ourself.

Some people seem called to help others, often very early on in their childhoods, responding to the needs of family members, strangers, or animals with a selflessness that is impressive.

Often, these people appear to have very few needs of their own, and the focus of their lives is on rescuing, helping, and healing others. While there are a few people who are truly able to sustain this completely giving lifestyle, the vast majority has needs that lie beneath the surface, unmet and often unseen. In these cases, their motivation to help others may be an extension of a deep desire to heal a wounded part of themselves that is starving for the kind of love and attention they dole out to those around them on a daily basis. For any number of reasons, they are unable to give themselves the love they need and so they give it to others. This does not mean that they are not meant to be helping others, but it does mean that they would do well to turn some of that helping energy within.

One problem with the rescuer model is that the individual can get stuck in the role, always living in crisis mode at the expense of inner peace and personal growth. Until the person resolves their own inner dramas, they play them out in their relationships with others, drawn to those who need them and often unable to acknowledge their own needs or get them met. In the worst-case scenario, they enable the other person’s dilemma by not knowing when to stop playing the rescuer and allow the person to figure it out on their own. However, if the rescuer finds the strength to turn within and face the needy aspects of their own psyche, he or she can become a model of empowerment and a true source of healing in the world.

Some signs that you or someone you love may need to rescue the rescuer within are inner burnout from overgiving; underlying resentment; an inability to admit to having needs of one’s own; and an unwillingness to be vulnerable. Help comes when we allow ourselves to admit we need it, acknowledging our humanity and our wholeness by acknowledging our pain. The understanding we gain in the process will naturally inform and inspire our ability to help those in need to do the same.

My Thoughts…
This was my automated message from TUT~Universe today March 20, 2012:
THOUGHTS BECOME THINGS

I ask you, Phoenix, as humbly as I can, to consider taking the path less traveled, going within, and getting quiet. Being yourself, shining your light, and reaching out to others.

No, no, heavens no! Not what you’re thinking!! I ask these things not that they might be an alternative to living high on the hog, in the fast lane, loaded down with embarrassing wealth… but as a means to attaining these things.

Just striving to preserve our options –
The Universe

The time is upon me,I have opened my shadow side.I delved into my deepest,darkest shadowy night of soul.The night that in hide-sight lasted far to long.

Dirty Little Secrets come to my mind.

So many are very secretive and they don’t want there lives aired out like laundry so too speak; in public for all too see.
I got over that issue a long time ago when I first started my website.

My first article; years ago in a online forum I frequented was called “White Demons” and it started things.
I got many emails and corresponded with many persons who resonated with the message.

I just finished updating the web page. (The Brass Key)
It does not go into the full detail as my interview will.
In the web page~Names are not used; and it could be seen as fiction. I needed to do this as ill begotten things were done and I do not want any repercussions down the line.

As far as the interview it’s self I will probably use my stage name of Cryominute.The way the web works; a sleuth or other wise detective could figure it out.

All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players: they have their exits and their entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts, his acts being seven ages.
William Shakespeare

I mean seriously IP addresses link you as the person behind the screen, The Man is always at our backs and what is truly incognito ?
Google this and Google that comes to mind.You would have to be living under a rock for something not to surface.You would have to unplug and shut down if you did not want to be seen in some form or fashion.

If I can help someone who is drowning in there Dark Night…and in so much inner pain;perhaps indirectly I will be healing myself in ways I am not aware of.

Suicide seems to be the answer for so many and that is heart breaking to the families.
They are the ones left to deal with the guilt of perhaps not seeing or doing enough.

Lyrics

When you’re weary
Feeling small
When tears are in your eyes
I will dry them all

I’m on your side
When times get rough
And friends just can’t be found
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

When you’re down and out
When you’re on the street
When evening falls so hard
I will comfort you

I’ll take your part
When darkness comes
And pain is all around

Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

Sail on Silver Girl,
Sail on by
Your time has come to shine
All your dreams are on their way

See how they shine
If you need a friend
I’m sailing right behind
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind
