The Beauty Of Being Alive!

I realized today, as I walked the beautiful grounds of the co-op in which I live, that this Great Mystery we name “God” or “Mother Nature,” has, indeed, gifted us humans with all we really need. And that I am here on earth not to “earn my living” but to serve the living. And for this Holy Work, I am automatically paid from “God’sStorehouse of never-ending abundance.

Take time out today to enjoy the beauty of being alive on this magnificent planet earth.

Some Thoughts On Old Age…Disease…And Dying…

The other day, during a telephone conversation (Yes, some of us still have telephone conversations…via landlines, no less.) an old friend of mine asked: “So what are you up to these days?” She had just finished describing her days of managing an “illness”—which she fully owned years ago—along with all the other obstacles and mundane matters of living in this world.

After listening to my list of daily activities, i.e., my daily spiritual practice; blogging, crafting one-of-a-kind necklaces; my attempts at creating a website—where I can sell these necklaces—plus my photography projects; and on and on and on. Poor thing I wanted to say to her, “No, my love. Keeping busy is what you do. I, on the other hand, am continuing to engage LIFE thus holding this body mind-soul back from that inevitable process of breaking down and withering away into dust…that process we call disease and dying…and which we anticipate happening to us when we reach what we humans call “old age.”  (And that varies with one’s mindset and lifestyle!)

But, of course, good breeding prevented me from saying any of that. Plus, I knew that I always had my Blog: https://toniroberts.wordpress.com and this Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/gaiadaughters in which to vent!

Thank you, for bearing with me. But please, think about it. How is it that some of us can move joyfully, healthily and actively into our seventies and eighties…while most others of us begin the disease and dying process, right-on-time, as if programmed to do so?

Comments are welcome!

Ah…and one more thing…before you start talking about DNA and genes…do a bit of research into the latest findings in the field of Epigenetics.

Life Is So Strange…

Thinking About Love Again Today…

wondering why our love was not enough to keep

beloved grandson

here

in this

   flesh life

came to the  realization

that human love is simply not enough

to keep the

soul

wedded

to

human flesh

for without that

   Essential Ingredient

that everlasting influx of

   LOVE…

of the

DIVINE KIND…

these flesh suits we wear are merely

empty

sacks

of

meaningless

   protoplasm

I’ve Finally Cracked The Great Mystery…And Gained Mastery Over The Torments And Enigmas Of This Human Existence…

I’ve reached

the

bottom-line

of

bottom-lines…

I’ve found

the

   WAY:

     SIT DOWN…SHUT UP

and

   LISTEN…

      for the only way to

KNOWLEDGE

is via the

      INNER PATHWAY…

the way of the

   HEART…

THE WAY

   OUT

        IS ALWAYS…

       IN…
