Lights up in the sky

Awesomely painting the night

We become silent

We could look at all the problems and despair. Or we could look beyond the problems and realize how awesomely this world is fashioned. Awesomely and barely understood. Like the Aurora borealis and the Aurora australensis.

And seeing these amazing lights, there is a chance that our problems and the problems of the world look a little smaller then. Small enough to maybe find solutions.

Step back a while and simply observe the beauty and power we see in nature. Or look to yourself, the beauty and power with which you are made.

Focus on the light, the beauty, the solutions and it will empower you.

Evening

As the evening falls

And you contemplate your day

The morning is born

Time flows continuously. It’s only for us that there are separations in it. Years, months, weeks, and days.

We also live continuously. Our expectations precede the actual events and some go so far as to tell us they actually create them.

In any case, it is not wrong to take time and think about what has happened and to anticipate what might come. Just don’t be too sure of it, stay flexible, stay open. Out of yesterday tomorrow arises; out of the dark the light breaks through; out of turmoil peace ascends.

Believe things as if

They are though they are not – yet

Faith creates future

 

painting-2519364_1920

Some people believe that our life is the inevitable product of what has happened to us and what will happen will not be much different than what lies behind us. They have resigned themselves to be somewhat a victim of their fate.

Other people have faith. They believe anything can happen, that the future can take them where they want to go, that tomorrow can be different from all their yesterdays. That the defeats they suffered in life don’t predestine their life still to come. That all the good things they dreamed of can still become true.

In the end it’s you who determines what your life will be. The past you can’t change, but you can still create your future.

Feelings

Lost in a moment

Carried away by feelings

Found in the flow of life

.

One could argue that feelings are what make us human. Computers imitate and surpass human thoughts. But people haven’t made any robot that we would trust to have true feelings. Feelings can bring us happiness, but some feelings can also make us sad, insecure, or even hateful. Some people suppress their feelings, others follow every fleeting emotion blindly, only to find themselves in hot water

It is said that feelings can be like a compass. We should trust our intuition and discern our feelings, just as we should discern thoughts. Not every thought is true, not every feeling is true. But those feelings that are not just aroused by temporary fleeting excitement, those feelings, which resonate deeply in us and are true to our heart, can lead us to be more of what we are and bring us closer to others and in harmony with life, with the universe, and with God.

Maybe it’s time to trust your feelings.

Opportunity

A new day arrives

What will it bring us today?

Opportunity

Every day gives us many opportunities to do things. We can choose from an almost unlimited plethora of things to do. We can learn something new, we can go somewhere we’ve never gone before. We can make new friends, or make up with someone, who used to be a friend. We can eat a new meal, cook something different, read a book, watch a new movie, plant some flowers or vegetables.

We can think new thoughts, or pray or meditate about our life. Or maybe we should simply relax and ‘tank up’.

It’s true, we can’t always do, what we want; but if we want to do something, we can.

Haze

morning haze

Morning haze hides the sun

Soon the bright light of the day

Brings us clarity

It’s written “Now we see through a glass darkly…”. It was written at a time, when window glass, or any glass, was rather murky and  not that clear transparent product that we call glass today. In fact, technology has so advanced our ability to see beyond our imaginations, it’s simply amazing.

Yet, still, when it comes to our life, we often don’t see clearly. We often don’t know which way to go, what the right decisions are, or sometimes don’t even know what we really want. It’s like we’re walking in a haze.

But wait! There is an ally that can help us: Time. With time often things get clearer. And if we let the light shine into our lives like the sun climbing into the sky it will clear the fog and the haze and soon we’ll see clearly.

No Time

bird-383245_1920

No time at all

In the silence between the seconds

We can talk with the stars

 

How often we hear people saying, “I have no time!” For this or for that or no time for you.

How wrong: Time is all we got. How we use it is what matters. What is important to us? What do we use time for?

Some  people build a career, some a life, some seemingly waste it. Take stocks at the end of your road, nothing is wasted. You’ve learned, you experienced it.

Some clocks have a second hand which makes a little ‘tic’ every time it moves. Tic-tic-tic- it’s ticking away our lives almost in a heartbeat. And what fills up the seconds? Busyness? Fun? Idleness?

Some people talk to the stars in the silent moments.

Rogue haiku

Tags

, , ,

 

stream-950716_1280

(There we sat and discussed the events of the day together)

The rippling brook

The silent stone

The wandering wind

And I

As far as haiku are concerned this one is definitely rogue. In one dictionary the word ‘rogue’ is described as:  ‘something or someone different from what is normal or expected’.

Definitely this haiku does not follow the 5-7-5 syllables rule, not even close. It also has a prologue.

It still is a haiku. Because haiku speak to me. And this one told me it is a haiku.

What does it say to you?

Do you want some deeper interpretation?

The rippling brook – that which moves through time

The silent stone – that which remains

The wandering wind – that which passes

And I – anyone of us

Fire Campfire Burn Embers Heat

A night’s campfire

A day’s break wrapped in rain

Love as our blanket

.

What does it mean? Is it a story? Is it your story?

Maybe it is the seed of a story. Maybe you can make the rest of the story. Maybe it is already your story, something that happened in your life. Or maybe it is something you dream of or you fantasize about.

Go ahead, make it your story. Make it what you want it to be.

Life is full of stories, full of possibilities.

Breathless

I’m holding my breath

Light chases away the night

Tomorrow is here

Sunrise

Night turns to day, a daily occurrence, you’ve gotten used to it. A repetition of yesterday’s event, and many events before that one.

No, but not this one. This one is new. This is not a repetition. It’s unique. A once in your life. Oh, how we are so easily deceived by our memories. So easily deceived to think we know it already.

Stop for a moment. Hold your breath! The next moment that arises is brand new. See it, feel it.  Life is yours while you have it. All is new, every moment. Enjoy it.
