Accept the Path You have Taken
Accept the path you have taken
For that is the road you have chosen;
The path may not be perfect
Accept that it may stir some emotion.
Accept the moment that is given
For that is all you can control;
The moment may not be as you expected
Accept it down deep in your soul.
Accept the body you live in
For that is what you have molded;
The look may not be what quite you wanted
Accept that your wonderful life has unfolded.
Accept all that has been given to you
For this is what you have unconsciously asked for;
Be thankful for all that has come your way
Accept these gifts as they should not be ignored.
A Portrait of a Human
A portrait of a human
The expression on his face;
Does it really mater
What ancestry of the race.
The beauty in this portrait
Provides comfort from his soul;
The wisdom he has gained
From the years of stories untold.
Peace has descended upon this man
As he ages with amazing peace;
Life is a wonder of miracles
That never seems to cease.
We gain wisdom from his smile
And comfort from his grace;
Learn from our ancestors
What else can we embrace?
Tis Christmas Day full of good memories
Of all the wonderful times that have past;
With the special gifts from loved ones
And thoughts that will forever last.
The tree is brilliantly lit with glow
With the wrapped presents down under;
Patiently awaiting to be opened
In awe of this Christmas season wonder.
A fire warms the chilly room
With dancing flames that endlessly glow;
Waiting for people to gather
To celebrate with laughter and a HOHO.
Snow gently falls from the sky
Blanketing the ground with white;
Nature’s gift to cleanse the soul
And offer this gift of light.
Blessings shine upon a glorious day
As we celebrate it with a loved one;
The future is bright in this warm winter light
For all the New Year days yet to come.
The Energy Within
Let the energy within you
Shine before the light;
It holds much spirit
That will carry you thru the night.
Energy yet untapped
You did not know you had;
Will it to come before you now
Experience its force that makes you glad.
Like Nature’s beautiful flower
That rises from the stem;
The strength within its petals
A precious gift that is truly a gem.
The power of the spirit
With the energy it holds;
Tap into this inner strength
Feel its blossom begin to unfold.
Live this Moment
How often do your hear “Live in the Moment”
This moment of time that you have right now
Listen to the wind that is calling you here
To this present moment in space.
Space that is flowing into your thoughts
That you can create with ease
Be in control of your session
This a gift for your spirit right now.
Now have control of your day
Let not whispers interrupt your peace
Do not create worries
For a time or place that will be.
Be settled in this moment
And always present with time
Focus on this sacred space
That is God’s gift to you.
Reflections of Nature
Reflection of beauty that nature provides
Brings amazing energy to my soul;
How perfect the pallet of colors there are
I gaze at its pattern about to unfold.
Simplicity of the picture before my eyes
Such peaceful energy it creates in me;
There is nothing more pleasant in my life
Than the presented view I can see.
Nature’s brush and technique are truly unique
Stitched carefully together with fine thread;
Let the beauty of the moment open my heart
And speak to my thoughts in my head.
For I only seek what truly is good to discover
As I stay focused on the what is resilient;
Enjoying this time that has been given to me
Blessed I am for this present moment.
Here we are at the heels of the holidays faced head on with the celebration of a new year. What does that mean to you? You may decide now is the time to change your diet, pledge to exercise, get organized in your life, or perhaps nothing at all. Yet, doesn’t it always seem to be a challenge to keep the momentum going for the change you decide to initiate?
Let each day of the year feel like January 1st. Engage and embrace change. Recently I decided to be more positive in my life, to truly believe in and practice positive thinking, energy and expression. Wow, that really helps to shield those day-to-day darts that are thrown at me. I try not to hang on to any negativity, but simply let those thoughts drift by like a puffy white cloud in the sky. Positive thinking in my life has made a difference in my relationship with others. And, my inner being, the voice that speaks to me, is peaceful and happy.
As the ball drops to begin a new year, reflect upon your own life. What change can you make that you will truly engage in and follow? Like a diet, it involves digesting different thoughts and feelings. Like exercise, it takes practice. Change can feel difficult at first, but if you stay true to yourself, you will begin to experience how your life is affected by the positive thoughts you create.
