Above is an image of my cat marking her territory. It's now Her Box. When we were children we did the same action of marking our territory with things. MINE! You hear all the time. As we grow older we still do mark our territory and call things MINE. We put names on our things, we register products we buy, and there is such a thing called the Patten Office. Even with all this, those things of "MINE" can be lost, stolen, or taken. Only when we lose the "Mine Mindset" can we free ourselves from "things" and when we free ourselves from "things" we will find peace. Peace is freedom from the "MINE MINDSET".
It's the End of the Day and you are tired, just want to relax, and maybe have a little fun. We all need time in our lives to wind down and collect our thoughts and actions. Life is a wave of intensity and tranquility. We need both to keep our lives balanced and not become bored. Morning is the time to gear your life up and accomplish what needs to be accomplished. At the End of the Day it is a time to look back, reflect, and find ways to relax, so the whole process can repeat itself the next day. Be thankful for the morning but also be thankful for the END OF THE DAY!
Life is difficult and at the end we would like to think we made a difference in the lives of others. We often reflect on our life as if it were a vast ocean we are staring at, but are overwelmed by the immensity of the space. So few of us are larger than life celebrities that effect the world that this would be true. However, if we reflect on our life as if it were a small Pond then we can see where we did make a difference. We do tend to look at too large of a picture or compare to a too large of a space from where we stand. If we focus on a smaller space, we can see where our lives have made a difference to others around us. We cannot think in Oceans, but think in Ponds. "A REFLECTION IN A POND."
Above is an image of Pelicans flying In Sync over the water in the early morning sunrise. Pelicans look so clumsy on land but when flying are beautiful to watch. It may not seems it happens alot, but there are times when our lives are In Sync. Everything just seems to go our way and falls into place. It is these moments in life that we should cherish and enjoy, for as we all know so well, these moments always do not last. Life offers us up and down moments and we concentrate so much on those down moments that we forget to celebrate when all goes right. When you sense an In Sync moment of llife, ride that feeling for as long as you can and remember it when Life goes in a different direction. Celebrate and rejoice when you are IN SYNC WITH LIFE!
Above is an image of the shoreline of Bordega Bay on the Pacific Ocean in California. The surf and the rocks can make it rough out there. Life can be rough at times, just like the sea. It can bounce us around and smash us with problems. We so often wish for peace and tranquity, but often find a rough time with problems and situations that arise. Life presents us with extremes light and dark, hard and soft, and rough and smooth. We need the patience to wait for the rough extreme to end, for like a rough sea, it will smooth out in time. We do have to remember, IT CAN GET ROUGH OUT THERE!
