The things that frighten us just want to be held.
It was Friday, which used to be date night, with some kind of special event, music or a sports gathering, and the gate was closed to autos at the large park at the end of Folly Island. So I had to walk in for about a mile to reach my favorite part of the beach where the Folly River meets the Ocean. It was very windy, stormy walking in towards the River along the beach, however I knew it would be easier with the wind at my back walking back. The white capped waves crashed just off shore, as there are shoals close in, which makes the waves calmer near the sandy beach, also there were large tidal pools, as the tide receded back to the sea. The large clouds were magnificent tinted with pink, orange and yellow from the setting sun. I get lost in the spectacular beauty, and all of a sudden I am far from lonely. While I was filming close to the water edge, a really large white dog appeared right in front of me even wading in the shallow wavelets to get my attention. The same awesome dog had done the same thing a few months ago, so I turned my camera around to film it, as it was going away, I did a kissing sound so he/she would turn around to face my phone/camera and I got her sweet face in the video. What an evening finishing off a busy week of decluttering and cleaning.
LIFE IS WORTH LIVING BEAUTIFULLY, AND WE ARE NEVER ALONE.
As i walked down the avenue, the late afternoon sun was turning the lovely and dying sycamore leaves into fragments of brilliant stained glass, and i said to myself, “This alone is worth the price of admission to our broken and glorious world.”
Love allows us to flow together toward a shared future.

To offer no resistance to life is to be in a state of ease, grace, and lightness. This state is then no longer dependent upon things being in a certain way, good or bad.
HOwever, resist that which is threatening to life. RON aLEXANDER
To be sensual, I think, is to respect and rejoice in the force of life, of life itself, and to be present in all that one does, from the effort of loving to the breaking of bread.
Our inner wisdom is persistent, but quiet. It will always whisper, but it will never stop knocking at your door.
Meditation is a practice where an individual uses a technique – such as mindfulness, or focusing the mind on a particular object,
Meditation isn’t about becoming a different person, a new person, or even a better person. It’s about training in awareness and getting a healthy sense of perspective. You’re not trying to turn off your thoughts or feelings. You’re learning to observe them without judgment. And eventually, you may start to better understand them as well.
The basic gist of today's thought is: Give (whatever) only out of joy. Sometimes we give because we feel sorry for some cause, and that's ok to give like that because it comes out of empathy. Sometimes we give because we're worried an organization will collapse with money, and that's ok reason to give as well. Sometimes we give to get something back. That's ok too, as long as it's not based on conditions. Etc.
Love is not soft and mushy. It is strong and resilient. It springs from the truth of our interconnectedness, and is powerful because it is aligned with what is true.
Martin Luther King, Jr., reminded us that “the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.” Change takes a long time, but it does happen. ... Each of us who works for social change is part of the mosaic of all who work for justice; together we can accomplish multitudes.
We plant seeds that will flower as results in our lives, so best to remove the weeds of anger, avarice, envy and doubt, that peace and abundance may manifest for all.
‘what do you plan to do with your wild and precious life.’ Don’t give up before the miracle happens (F Flagg)
Our life is love, and peace, and tenderness; and bearing one with another, and forgiving one another, and not laying accusations one against another; but praying one for another, and helping one another up with a tender hand.
